This was our honeymoon and it was brilliant!
Best hotel I have ever stayed in and most relaxing holiday iv had.
The surroundings are beautiful in the resort and the private beach is wonderful.
Didnt like the city of Hurghada, as we had a day trip here but it was something to see, reminded me of how Bombay would look and was really unclean and we got hassled alot, it was quite scary really.
The resort and hotel complex however were the cleanest iv ever seen and the people didnt hassle you, the people who worked on the beach and spa came upto us a few times but you are given a red flag to put onto your sunbed which stopped them approaching you, they really wernt that bad though as they worked on the complex and the things they were offering where guenuine like spa treatments and scuba diving.
The food was amazing and the rooms were lovely and big.
EVERYTHING was all inclusive and the A La Carte resturants were sooo nice!
Has a onsite night club/disco to party at night as well as a pool with slides.
Massive complex and lovely staff apart from one grumpy bar man at the main bar!
Mina at the pool bar and Marley and John the animation team were really lovely people especially.
I would recommend Mamaya (could be spelt wrong its pronounced macmaya), the unspoilt island offered by the Thomas Cook rep at the welcome meeting as a boat trip, well worth the money!!!
Overall a great holiday and didnt have to spend a penny apart from we booked onto the trip and give £1 in english to the bell boy and cleaner a few times and occasionally the waiters (loved english money but never expected it).
When getting on/off the coach at the airport dont let anyone put your bag onto the coach as they will put thier hand out for money...These are airport workers and nothing to do with the hotel.
it is £13 in english into the country-dont let them fob you off, although there are some dodgy people in Egypt dont let this put you off as the hotel is very proffessional and the staff would neber ask for money and the managers are very strict.
I never thought i would say this but i am now an Egypt convert and would go back in a heart beat...but only to this hotel :)
