having just returned on he 16th Nov....Id like to say how very disapointed I am. This hotel did not deliver the 5 star standard as stated in the Thomas Cook brochure.
On arrival.1st impressions count....Awfull!..the reception area is s drab and worst for wear. The lobby had big dated velvet sofas with tassles on, that had obviousley been well used and worn..and d the decor need a good lick of paint just to cover the scuffs and general wear and tear!.I could see this hotel does not take pride in refurbishment.
The room was ok.. I could live with that.the shower was very good and the beds really comfy. The mid service was fine also.
Main buffet...vry limited on choce..and catered more for the russians....infact the food was a struggle, to find anythink decent....I mean..come on....who has birds tongue soup on the menu!..also once again..in need of a refurb.
A la carte...
Steak house....not good.
Italian..was the nicest..not to bad at all.
Asian...tasted lovely..1 hour later straight to the loo..myfreind as very poorly from that place.
Afther that never bothered to try any the others..stuck with chips and a few differnt bits n bobs.
The best food overall was breakfast... dont eat inthe main restaurant..eat brekky in the mexican..still the same..but alot more pleasnt..yes i likes that.
The main bar area around the pool...
What cn I say..the seat pads are filthy!!!need a good wash..2 star standard..i wouldent put them in my garden.
The resort is huge..its lik a concreat jungle.
I know im going on a little...but I want people to know..if you ask fo a 5 star.especially a good company like thomas cook..You expect to get what you pay for. Well I think so!
The resort really is so dated..plus theresno were outsid the resort..ur in the middle of a deset.
Hurghada..te old town and the marina..just ok.prob do the lot in 4 hours.
All as I can say is dont do it!!!!
Plus almost forgot...You get mithered like mad..even on your sun lounger!..theres no rules for whos allowed around the tourists...you carnt evensun bathe in peace.
A very disappointing holiday indeed.
