We have just got back from spending 14 nights at Sinbad. (2 adults & 2 children (5/10)
Stayed in the aqua park hotel room 218.
Animation team were fab! Special thanks to steph and fem!
We had a family room, it was a good size, was cleaned every day to a high standard by Sammy.
All of the staff are very friendly and very warm and welcoming.
The location is good, near to all the shops you will need, we ventured to the marina but apart from boat trips and bars and more of the same shops there's not much there.
I liked that there was 3 very different hotels that you can use, the aqua park was very busy but good for the kids, the aqua hotel had a huge pool that was great for swimming and relaxing and the beach hotel was In the middle and also good.
Me and the hubby both had a spa treatment on the second day! We had the chocolate one, I would hightly recommend it! Make
Sure you haggle with them to get a good price!
This is not an English resort! There was a total of 11 staying I'm the hotel at one point, the locals have nicknamed it "ruskgarda"
The children's mini disco is aimed
At German and Russian children and does not cater for English at all.
The Russians are very rude! They do not understand how to share, line up or take turns! At meal times they would push in the que, on the slides they would not share the rings and we even spotted a few taking them back to their sunbeds. The staff did nothing to address this dispite several complaints been made. If you
Want more English to come like many of the staff said, you need to encourage all of your guest to be civilised!
The shower in our room
Was very old, you could not get a shower with out jumping in and out of it, the water ran extrely hot then just right then freezing cold! This was every night!
The night time entertaient was 'ok' however as we stayed 2 weeks some shows were repeated.
There is no alcohol content in the alcohol!!! We drank all day and night and did not feel tipsy! We ended up having to go to the duty free and buy our own!
The food!!!! Well,,,, it is the same food served at all 3 hotels! There is a very small selection and it is very repetitive! We have stayed in a number of all inclusive resorts in Spain, Cuba and turkey so i know this can be the case but I would go as to say it was the worst ever! On a plus side, the small selection of food they did have was nice and the 3 a la carte's are worth a visit however you can only visit each one once.
This has alao got to be the worse hotel for being mithered! All
Day every day sales people would be coming round to your sunbed and asking you to buy bottles beer, fruit juice, various trips ect,,, it became very tiring and monotonous!
Don't sign any prices of paper to agree to any trips/henna tattoo's anything!! One of the sales persona tried to sell me a dolphin trip, I told him I would ask the kids to see if they wanted to go, he was adamant that he booked me on the trip to save a place, he did not ask me to leave any money but asked to fill in a slip. When he later returned the kids decided they did not want to go however he pointed out that the slip had in tiny writing that a 50% payment must be made if the trip
Does no go ahead and he got very angry about this! Luckily we did not end up paying! But be warned!
Would I go back again,,,, No, but I also wouldn't go back to hurghada.
