Greate late booking deal with Red Sea. Airport at Hurghada one big scrum, 1st tip on entering arrivals disregard fast track visa agents and take sharp left go to banks for $15pp you still have to join next scrum at passport control.Palace has the wow factor , rooms are a bit dated but overall its a gem. 2nd tip, especially if only staying for a week, book the restaurants you want to eat in well ahead as you may miss out otherwise , tried the Italiain,thai , chinese, botanical , Dome and Melange all good Botanical head and shoulders though, Dome lovely but bit like the airport with Germans and Russians showing their lack of manners, more later, Discovery open at 5am to allow Germans to have breakfast before putting towels out , seriously,beds are plentifull but this time of year hotel is full and if you have not joined them and set your alarm for 6.30 you will be lucky to gat beds anywhere apart from the beach , 3rd tip get your wife to set alarm and push you out of bed at 6.40 it's great fun lol. Beach has plenty of beds and staff will sort them and drinks for you , 4th tip if you like the beach or miss the pool beds turn right at beach and walk 200yds in front of new hotel beach is better and there is a new beach bar and toilets that are spotless- reef is also very good for the snorklers- like swimming in an aquerium. Building work going on but only seen or heard from right hand side of the beach or back of Family Star hotel. All staff very friendly and helpfull , I took $ for tipping and these were very well received . We could only do a week at 40+ and not a cloud in sight , lol,so enjoy i hope this helps.
