Just enjoyed a lovely week here. The hotel, it's true, is a little tired (they are expanding and renovating at the moment) but spotlessly clean. The gardens are beautiful and sea view excellent. What makes it one of the most enjoyable stays I have had in any hotel in the world (more enjoyable than in posher places) is the superb staff. They are so friendly, polite, hard-working and really can't do enough to cater for you and make you happy. In the restaurant I would mention waiter Yahia (and Mahmoud)who looked after us superbly; the Executive sous chef (sorry can't remember his name) whose charm, enthusiasm and attention to detail was second to none and who made a special dish for my wife; the very helpful and pleasant DJ Youssef; our wonderful room cleaner ( room 621) who made all sorts of witty shapes with the towels such as hearts and swans; and the fantastic Mr Adel Hawary, in charge of the private beach. It was mostly windy (perhaps avoid February as it is often windy and also the Egyptian holiday season so the hotel was quite crowded) and Adel always had our loungers ready well protected with wind breakers and extra towels. He could not be more helpful and was always immediately on hand if one needed anything. He was assisted by a great team, and we were impressed with the scrupulous daily inspection Adel carried out with his boss (again, didn't get his name) to make sure the sand was clean and facilities in good order. I should also mention Mahommed Fatty on the animation team who tried with great good humour, and failed, to get my wife to join the exercise class. Great guy.
The food was excellent, particularly the salads, breads, freshly barbecued fish and meat, fantastic soups, breakfasts (including an interesting wheat porridge my wife took to, and fresh omelettes etc.), wine and beer. Everything was included. We could have eaten in the a la carte once as part of the deal but didn't feel the need to. The biggest challenge was to avoid over eating because it was all so delicious.
Hurghada the town is not the most lovely place so apart from a couple of walks we stuck to the hotel. When they finish their extension work there will be more space for walking within the hotel.
Thank you to everyone in the hotel for all your efforts. Much appreciated
