“More than expected for the sixth time”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

This is our sixth time to this hotel in six years and every time when we arrive there there are a few surprises (Good ones)and this year we really enjoyed the Jazz bar ,the staff are really amazing and they dont spare any thing to make you feel special and the food is never boring like other all inclusive holidays (even for the kids )there is always new item every day.
The other good thing is the Managment of the hotel they are always and I mean always on the ground with the staff and between the guests looking after every thing (In my opinion I think this is the main reason of the exellence of this hotel)

We have been coming to this hotel now for the last 4 years and we have been impressed with the staff, service, rooms, activities and entertainment. The addition of the Jazz Bar is great, a really nice place to relax in the evening after sun bathing and lounging by the pool.

The hotel manager, Hisham Abdelsamed, is great and really looked after us along with his team:

Mohamed Meny - On Reception greats you with a smile all the time and is always helpful with information, things to see and do whilst staying at the hotel and Hurghada.

The catering team & waiters, too many to name them all personally, provided a really good service and selection of vegetarian food given my health constraints, and cos we were 3 fussy princesses, was really good of them, however, we have to give a special mention to Ali Tarek who made us great pizza's miss them already!!

Mohamed Mahgoub in Housekeeping, my husband can learn a thing or 500 from this guy...umm maybe I should just marry him instead...lol...anyway he's a really great guy and even though we ladies, if that's what you would call us if you had seen our room, pretty much made his day a nightmare he would always sort the room without any fuss and leave us little folded gifts for when we got back to our room so a big THANK YOU from us to you!! :-)

Animation Team are a great bunch of guys and girls, really friendly and make your time enjoyable. The shows are great and make preparing for an evening out on the town a good start, they also took us to Havana Club which is a good place to start the night off, and as we are staying at the hotel entrance to the club was free! The team this year really made our stay and a special Thank You to Imo Ahmed, Sasa Mustafa, Mazen Mohmed, Hazem Mostafa & Daniel Nissan but also to the resident DJ Hamdy El Fakhavany

The Jazz Bar is a recent addition to the hotel and is a nice relaxing place that all the guest gather in the evening for the live entertainment, from the Animation Team shows to live musicians. Nice vibe about the place, it has an outdoor section but also an indoor area for those that need something cooler, and just a really cool place to be after being in the sun all day. The team at the Jazz Bar that we would like to mention are: Kareem, Ahmed Saed, Saad Mohamed, Ahmed Gamal & Moustafa Abdou who were great in looking after us during our stay.

The Oasis Pool Bar is a nice place to go and relax for the day in the sun and the bartender, El Shazly Hasan, is a really cool guy. He would make us our drinks and we would then go and sun bath. He got to know us so well that by the 4th day he knew our routine and would have our drinks ready for us the next time when we came down, now that's a great bartender!!

The rest of the day we would spend by the pool and El Shazly Hasan would bring over our choice of drinks during the day.

Now call us cheeky but we managed to sweet talk the life guard, Yaser GHetany, into reserving our sun loungers for us 3 on some days, now I can't say he will do this for everyone.

So as you can see the team that Hisham Abdelsamed has at this hotel is great, but it would be nothing without him!! The attention to service he provides for his guests is second to none and I can honestly say this has been the best trip yet to this hotel, but it will NOT be our last.

Hisham Abdelsamed we will see you next year, and remember you have to bring something new to the hotel like you have done every year so far that we have been coming there as this is something we look forward too.

Room Tip: Go for rooms that are in the 400 range as they are newer, but all the rooms are pretty good

Excellent all super relaxed. Around the cleanliness, friendly staff, the whole no one was rude. All evenings were great fun thanks to a huge group of animators, the child was very interesting. Gorgeous holiday ezhayte not regret it. The food is a good selection of large lots of pools, it is interesting morning water aerobics, gymnastics, water volleyball, tvnets abdomen, mini golf,Kids Club. In general an interesting program in the morning and evening. Umnichka animators, lighters, super hang out with tourists.We went on trips Aquaworld diving and very interesting. I think with what attitude edish on vacation and spend.We stayed 11 days we were really little. I am going to leave again in the next hotel ALF LEILA WA LEILA.

I have been many times at the red sea, in Sharm and in Hurghada. I always wanted to go to Alf Leila Wa Leila because it looked like a 1001 night fairy tale to me. And so I did; it's pure eye-candy when you arrive there; the rooms are more average. In the room were many flies, it was an invasion and after we killed all the flies, other troops of flies came to invade the room.
We had a room on the ground floor, bordering the beautiful garden and thought that they were coming from outside, so we shut the door to our terrace and hoped that the problem was solved. Not really, we kept on killing the flies and at a certain moment there was an invasion of at least 20 flies coming in every hour after we killed all of them while everything was closed. I think it must have been the aircosystem. When I go to Egypt I like to dive and snorkle so I wake up early and go to sleep early, but that was impossible. An incredible noisy late night show kept me awake. Never again!

Hotel makes impress on first 2 days,big choice of different ,nice swimming pools,bars and restaurants.Also this sound and light night makes impress but thats it!!!Animation is poor ,food is average and drinks are usually served without ice.Every time you need to ask for Ice.Staff expect big tips because that hotel is overrated.Beach is not superb.And rooms are strongly unfair.Some rooms are lovelly and high level and some rooms(like us) are so bad like in 2 star hotel .

First visit to Egypt, but certainly not the last .....
We landed at the airport on Saturday so that was a bit of a chaos, but when we went to the hotel and taking up residence my mood has improved. Hotel about 15 km from the center of Hurghada, but this is not a disadvantage. The hotel architecture is so interesting so spend time on it is really fun. The hotel area is quite large, a small pool, active pool I think everyone will find their own ;) evening program interesting and fun. . In the complex there are various bars and cafes for all. Food... food here I really enjoyed. Food quality checks so keep food fresh and tasty. Chinese, Italian, and Morocco restaurants did not allow the overall chance delicious meals every day ... Hotel is quite active but the quality of sleep is not affecting ... some cafes that lasts until 2:00 at night. Hotel is fond of German tourists about 70 percent ... a shame that they have to smoke so many :) I enjoyed staying in hotel just a bit annoyed descending aircraft noise ...

Pros:
Large beautiful area
Clean rooms and in the territory
Good Services
Food 10 points
Evening program and animators work very well

Cons:
Only Few non-smoking areas
Aircraft landing sound


P.S. If you want to get a better room, wait until the porter will escort you to first room if you don’t like give tips about 10 usd dollars and then You get beatiful room with balcony and pool view :)

P.S.S. give tips after you get good room ;)

Room Tip: Tips makes miracles...

1.We paid for a room with a balcony or terrace, we were offered an economy room with a window.
2.At the 3rd attempt we accepted a dirty room.
3.Our 1st night the Bathroom flooded.
4.Hotel was like a building site, we were not warned.
5. The Bar staff did not know how to make a cocktail as per their advertised cocktail menu card. A pina colada, was half a glass of Rum topped up with milk, it was undrinkable.
6. All venue's with entertainment were smoking bars, as a non smoker i couldn't breath.
7. I am English, i was not told this hotel is 100% German tourists, you cannot even buy an English newspaper, i should have been warned, i would have picked a different hotel.
8. The food was disgusting.
9. The waiters in the bars would take your glass away without asking if you want another drink, not a 4*service.
