“A holliday i never will forget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

After booking apartment in Sharm, we decided to change to Hurgada, because of the negative travelling advice.
We booked Desert Rose in Hurgada,when we arrived, we were a bit sceptic, because the whole hotel is full of russians.
But we had a great holliday, brilliant place to stay, staff friendly, nothing is too much. Guys from animation are the best, full of energy and always friendly.
We booked couple of trips with Samy from Morningstar 5 and it was perfect !!!
I cant wait to go back again !

Room Tip: we had a room at the beach side, a bit further from reception, but perfect !

Nice hotel with very good service. Very large area, beautiful lagoon. Rooms, big and sunny, are clined everyday. Excellent food with various of dishes. Every night different taste: egyptian, bbc, mediterrean, sea food. But what I liked the most were animation.
It was my third time in Egypt but for the first I had sport animation almost all the day. I tried yoga, step, water aerobic, streching and zumba. Special greetings to Ramy, Polo and Fabio - best sport animators!!!
Also Children Animators were very professional. My child liked them very much. Thank you Swietlana!!!
If you need good place for family holidays I can simply advise this hotel.

I really travelled and spent my holidays in lot of different hotels but never felt so great like in desert rose. Though the hotel is really big you feel very familiar, everyone treats you like a part of family not like someone they have to work for.
The whole staff is smiling all the time, very friendly and helpfull - never met someone who looked bad at me. yeah it´s true they always start to speak russian with you - but don´t take it bad - it´s enough to tell them just one time that you´re not from russia and they will remember :)
Treat them like they are your friends and not someone who have to work for you and they will be greatfull and try to make you feel like in heaven.

Never feel bored, the hotel have the greatest animation team, which create your time with great activities along the whole day :D I enjoyed zumba at the beach with Fabio everyday and watergym or stretching with Ramy or Kira - they´re really great in what they´re doing and you can see they love their job - just would wish to see Sherif smiling more :)
Same in the evening, which was fullfilled with a different show everyday - a really great team!!!

I also enjoy the food - everyday a lot of fresh tasty fruits, everyday another dinner (like mediterran or asian food), everyone can find something :)

The rooms are very clean, always decorated with great towels-figures

It wasn´t my first time in desert rose and I´m sure also not the last one!

Beautiful hotel, lovely location, clean and well kept at all times. Great facilities for all ages, would like to bring my family next time as the kids entertainment and facilities would keep them amused for hours - a great bonus for their parents.

Staff very helpful and extremely efficient. Had a problem with hot water and it was sorted with 15 mins. Met the manager of the Hotel who was "bed over backwards" helpful to us. Any problems or queries he told us to go straight to him - only one as stated previously. I would definitely recommend the hotel to friends and family.

The main restaurant buffet food was variable and well presented, main meals slightly warm though, prefer hotter. The three themed restaurants were excellent, personally I preferred the waiter service there and food a lot hotter
