I decided to take my two teenage sons to this hotel after reading the reviews here. I was not disappointed with the hotel. It was very staff friendly and the hotel facilities and grounds were immaculate.
The rooms were basic but clean and all we needed we were in the 400 block which backed on to the large gradual pool.
The food was served in abundance and although we did not like the food served in the Italian and Asian restaurants (very,very bland) we did enjoy the Moroccan and Buffet. There was soooo much food you could not possibly not find something you enjoyed. We often ate starters in one place and moved on to the next for mains... just because we could...:) All day cafes by the larger pools provided coffee,tea, drinks, cocktails, ice cream and pizza (during lunch time hours). Needless to say I ate way too much....
The boys used the Water park facilities next door but did not enjoy the park as the water was not heated...freezing cold water when your ride ended. I heard a lot of complaints regarding that.
We booked a snorkeling tour and a quad bike tour direct through the hotels tour centre. Both were great fun. I advise if you are going on the quad bikes do not take handbags, expensive cameras do not take or wear anything that you consider precious. This is purely for the sand, dirt factor. It gets into everything...I took a plastic bag with water and my iphone wrapped in another plastic bag.
The snorkeling was fun and it doesnt matter which tour group you book with you all go to the same places. The first place Paradise Island was a disappointment to say the least. Nothing resembling Paradise on that island. The water was dirty and had far too much trash floating around in it. However, the next three stops of the day were wonderful. So do not lose heart after being visiting Paradise... :)
The hotel complex has a number of shops, Tshirts, Jewelery and a small mini mart and of course all the Egyptian trinkets... the t shirt shop at the end of the mall is very well priced and is run by a wonderful man who does not believe in pressuring you in to buying anything. There is also many shops within walking distance from the hotel. If you catch the shuttle to Dana Hotel (beach hotel) you will see the shopping streets. I advise you to choose a set price store as getting ripped off is always on the cards. Set price shops will drop their prices if you are buying a few items. There is also a large shopping mall (walking distance) to the left of the hotel you pass by the go cart track. Lots of good quality stores and a wonderful Mexican restaurant.
The hotel has a relaxation centre which included massages and saunas, worth a visit. The hairdressing salon offers pedicures and facials which can be summed up in three words...don't do it! They also do hair plaiting which seemed ok.
The hotel has two foreign currency change machines... they are unreliable and were out of order a lot of the time... the shopping mall has change machines if you get stuck.
Dana Beach hotel was nice to visit, you are taken by shuttle directly to the beach area of the hotel. Lunch and drinks are inclusive. We had a good day there.
If you intend to spend the day lying by one of the larger hotel pools I recommend that you place your towels out on the sun chairs or beds BEFORE breakfast. The competition was very high to secure sun chairs... by 8am most have been "reserved". So go out early and get your towels on seats...
The hotel entertainment was good, nightly shows were held in the complex arena (same show each night but in different languages). Lots of childrens activities (they even have a child centre), the main pool in the middle of the complex has all day entertainment. Music and dancing in the two clubs at night.
All in all it was a great holiday. I felt relaxed and well looked after exactly what a holiday should be. Hope you enjoy.

After reading many reviews checking photos that holiday makers took we decided to book this holiday, we traveled with a disabled person so hotel need to be accessible fordisability motor scooter. From photos we could see pool was and all area of the hotel. This was the best hotel we have stayed in egypt for price which include Entertainment and full inclusive. The food was lovely no one got and food posioning was a variety and many different style resturants with shows in them while you eat was lovely. The rooms could do with up dating but i think some have been done, this is a very large hotel complex but doesnt feel so large when you go around it, All that it states it has in the webb site is correct there is an open air theartre that has all the historical site in Egypt and a show telling you all about them. there is free horse rideing and camel riding in evening and in the morniings to learn horse riding which we did in this amazing open threatre. My parents and daughter said it was there best holiday we didnt leave the hotel as it had everythink we wanted in there. Staff managers so nice only one point which we did mind was there are not many uk vistors in the hotel so the staff go out there way to make sure your stay is prefect as they miss the uk vistors. Heated pool was heated all the time kids pool beauitfull, entermainment team excellent they take you to night club free mini bus and stay with guest until they return to hotel guest safety is the up most importance and that you holiday is full enjoyed great for any age people wonderfull for families with young children and grandad parents. I have been to many hotel and resorts around the world including many in Egypt but this hotel i would rate this is as excellent value for money would stay here again and take friends and family here. We stayed here 2011 nov

Hello
I would like to deal with you my opinion about alf leila va leila. I spent there one week at the end of september. i have to say that it is really worth visiting hotel.

Firstly rooms are good , maybe not fantastic , the best are 400 and up numbers, but i saw that usually the guests there are Germans i was in room 610 or 612 , rooms with number 600 and up and 800 and up are also good the worst are 100 and up. Personell is really helpful even when i have stomachache at 4:00 they help us to contact with doctor, and here i have to say if you have some problems with stomach the best way is to go to doctor they know what to do and what kind of medicine give you. fortunately after two days i feel better. and it was not the fault of food it is because of my stomach i always have some problems

What about food. FANTASTIC! 4 resaturants: italian asian egyptian and maroccan. 3 or 4 cafeterias , food was very tasty , each they they try to add something new, waiters where really nice always bring you what you need.

Animation team. Best regards for you. Talented young people each they you could play volleyball beach and water, make aerobic, belly dance, play boccia. each evening you have different performance, for me the best was musical and cobra show . musical because you could see how great animation team dance, some of them are proffesional dancers, they were always happy and helpful. water aerobic a lot of fun . i really recommend you this hotel you will never be bored there. you can also play table tennis, tennis and minigolf.

The beach is 10 minutes walk or every 15 minutes you have minibus. Hotel has 8 swimming pools , often waiters bring you cold drinks on pool. Whats more hotel has two amfitheatres, you can see 1001 night performance and on small amphiteather you have each day in the evening performances. And you also could riding or horse and camel for free each day. I have to also say that jazz club was cool!!

What about trips you have to try diving, firstly scary you will have a lot of adrenaline but that what you see under water is AMAZING!

I think it is the hotel with tradition and they really make you feel good and come back there one day. if you have some additional questions dont hestitate to write to me mariczka.miller@gmail.com

best wishes
Marika:)

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
