My partner and I have just returned from the Sea Star, Hurghada (9th Dec 2008) after an 11 day 'all inclusive' stay and whilst we were apprehensive at some of the reviews, we found a hotel that was difficult to fault other than perhaps the food. This was the only aspect preventing a top rating.
The hotel was not full so that made it more comfortable at the pool and beach although there is ample sunbathing beds and spaciously set out. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the hotel itself is really 5 star. There is a health suite, plenty of bars and games such as pool and table tennis and traditional holiday entertainment in the evening. For the younger generation there is a disco.
British tourists seem to be in a minority with many east European visitors but so what? Everyone displayed courtesy whilst we were there.
This was my 7th visit to Egypt and I have never felt that it is a destination for children under 10 (unless they have cast iron tummies). The weather was warm, not scorching and a light jacket or jumper is needed in the evenings at this time of year.
The only disappointment was the food in the hotel and there is nowhere else locally to eat. The food, as one might expect is different and some of it is not presented well. However, there is a wide range and plenty of it. You would not go hungry but may find yourself eating the same food for the duration because of uncertainty about the local dishes.
I would definitely go back again.
