Arabella Azur Resort
Ranked #78 of 222 Hotels in Hurghada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2010

This all-inclusive hotel is just right for those who want a little bit of "old-world Egypt" and the all-inclusive experience. The rooms are built with old-style architecture, and they are a bit dated in their furnishings, but clean, spacious and airy. The food is fantastic, and there were absolutely no complaints here. There are several places to get drinks and so you are never thirsty! The beach is ok, but not a winner. Nevertheless, the snorkeling is wonderful and so accessible! The staff are great, always willing to help and never intrusive. We will return to this place, as it is certainly a gem!

Stayed: August 2009, travelled with family

Quite nice hotel in the very touristic hurgadha.
The hotel is well design and you even don't realise that there are 300 rooms.
Don't have high expectations and you won't be disapointed.
- the beach, actually, it s not a sandy beach but they have a snorkeling spot which is quite great (scorpion fish, rock fish and even ... dolphins - twice in a week at very early morning)
- the food, not that good - not that bad, just ok, but you won't go to Egypt for food, will you?

The spa is quite good and the prices ok, you can negociate up to 50%

This hotel between the old end the new part of Hurghada is just fantastic. The reef in front of the hotel is big and rich in corals and coloured fishes. The food is excellent and varied and we never had trouble with our stomach. I think many healthproblems are because touching the money who carry a lot of bacteries. You absolutely have to wash your hands every time you handle. Make it as a paranoïa and you never be sick.
Back to the hotel: the architecture make you feel like in the 1001 nights and if you like take pictures, you will enjoy every corner shooting your fiancé with exotic clothes and arabic mood. Don't forget to take a walk on the 2nd floor. It 's like a big terrace with small bridges, arches and passages. All the passages and the many small squares make it as a labyrinth. The swiming-pools are just appropriated, the big one has a bar where you can seat in the water and drink a coctail. The little is warmed up and have music and terrace to eat.
The personal is very nice and friendly. From the reception to the cleaning personal.

Can not recomend this hotel. Food was not good. Even though we only stayed at the hotel everyone in our party (6 persons) got problems with the stomach. Parts of this are of coarse due to the guests at buffees, but we could see the personell do many mistakes that could cause this. Service level completely unpredectible. A few good persons, but many persons that apperently got into the wrong occupation. Are a frequent traveller and been to >500 hotels. In general service level I rank this to the worst 10. It is called all inclusive but you have to take a fight to take more than an icecream and give to your kids unless they follows you. You are not allowed to take drinks from the pool. In one pool they you can only sit in the pool to get a drink...Some solicitating in the hotel area.
The few positives are good cleaning (and they can speak english. Free pool tables and they had ongoing European championchip soccer on big screens.
Everyone I spoked with had complaints on the service level from personnel. It is probably a better deal to go to the sister hotel Arabia a few meters away. Most people i spoked with was positive to the service there

Pros:

Beautiful architecture, pleasant landscaping and comfortable, unique looking rooms. The all-inclusive format allows you to eat, drink, snorkel, etc. under a single, daily charge paid at the end of your stay. It's like an all-you-can-eat buffet. I found the staff friendly and helpful and the desk manager was fantastically attentive and caring whenever I needed help with travel plans, extra blankets, etc. The food was plentiful, diverse and satisfying. The local waters were stunning shades of turquoise to deep cobalt and the small reefs simply chaotic with aquatic life. There were plenty of additional activities (at an extra cost) one could participate in through the hotel (diving, desert safari, massage, etc.) All in all this place was a welcomed escape from the hassle of the regular tourist routes.

Cons:

The taxi driver I used from their hotel was a rude and abusive fellow, and while three of their four restaurants were fine, one which was only loosely affiliated with the hotel (located in the "Ali Babba Bazaar") was populated with a staff arrogant enough to make me leave before even ordering. Also, the majority of the people who use this hotel are from Europe, and while not overt, I did find myself the focus of a certain amount of curiosity and even scorn as an American, especially an American traveling with an Asian girlfriend. I occasionally felt alienated, and at times rather tired of being stared at and discussed.

Just return from Iberotel Arabella. Hotel is about 2km from Sakala (town centre). This hotel is 10 years old, but rooms are well furnished. Hotel resort is large with 2 beaches (one is coral reef, second is lagun), 2 nice pools and severals pubs, disco, internet caffe etc. Hotel staff is very helpfull. I would highly recommended to stay in this hotel, but be aware town is dirty and people in it are very poisonus.
