“Winter sun for the first time - won't be the last time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2011

Just returned (last week) from a week at Laguna Vista Beach Resort and we had a great time. Just off the main road, the hotels grand lobby area is bettered only by its garden areas which are absolutely immaculate.

We stayed in one of the Chalets down by the quiet pool (506). The living area was large and clean with flatscreen TV and fridge and air con with a terrace area overlooking the pool area. An ideal base to explore the hotel resort and surroundings. If the room was let down in any way it was the bathroom.... perfectly functional with all you'd expect but probably about time for an overhaul - still immaculately clean though. The huge bed was a bit too hard for my liking but thats just my personal preference.

Being January it was quiet around the pools which was perfect for a relaxing stay. The staff were nothing short of fantastic. Mohammed at the quiet pool, Mustafa in the restaurant and Sahar guy who cleaned our rooms were all very friendly and attentive. Don't read too much into people who say the staff are arrogant. These kind of comments say more about them than it does the staff.

Being all inclusive the food was good if nothing special. There was always something for everyone and the live cooking stations were a favourite of mine. A bit repetative, but thats all inclusive for you. The pastries at breakfat time were beautiful - miss them so much! If you do get a dose of the pharoes revenge, there's a pharmacy 30 yards from the hotel lobby and you'll be sorted in no time.

A few do's & don'ts then. Don't use hotel taxis - half price 50 yards from the door. Do try a diving trip, but dont book with the holiday company - again much cheaper and far better elsewhere (plenty to choose from). Do try the spa - even for guys its good. Don't worry about the Russians, they're arrogant and up their own back ends but thats not your problem. Do tip the waiters, barmen, cleaners etc. They get paid pennies but are so good. Finally relax and enjoy it - not hard to do to be honest. We'll definately be back for some winter sun.

I stayed at Laguna with my boyfriend and had nice time! It is very beautiful hotel with many places to relax. There are outdoor swimming pools and nice beach. We preferred to visit the heated pool in SPA center.
Restaurant was very good with smiley helpful waiters. There was always plenty of delicious food served.
Our room was quiet and located not far from the main restaurant what was very comfortable. Our cleaner was doing his best to keep our room clean and fresh. So we will definitely come back and will recommend the hotel to our friends. Thank you, Laguna!

We read all of the negative reviews but went thinking positively and hoping that all the good reviews were accurate. I have to say all of the poor reviews are accurate. The food and service in the hotel are poor. The buffet restaurant is mayhem breakfast, lunch and dinner. The choice of food is poor and repetitive and service is poor. We realised on our 3rd day that we could use the restaurant in the garden resort and the service there is much better. The food choice is a little better but not fantastic. The rooms are ok, although on our first night we were opposite the nightclub which was a nightmare and can be heard across the resort but in the rooms near the beach it is very very loud and goes on until way past 3 am. We moved the next day into a quieter room and it was a lot better. The grounds are very well kept and the pool areas are lovely. The staff in the bottom pool are really nice and work really hard from 10.00 am to 10.00 pm.

The beach is lovely with a really nice promenade you can walk along. The weather was fantastic and this made our holiday. We did end up eating out in the evening a few times. There are nice restaurants and bars at Soho Square which is a short taxi ride away. There are plenty of places to eat just outside of the room.

I think there is a major problem with hygiene in the restaurants - at least half of the people we talked to were ill with stomach bugs. Thank goodness the pharmacy is close by. I was very careful, using antibac gel but still managed to pick up the bug. Some people were really ill. I was still poorly a week after returning. This seemed to be a major problem in this hotel and will continue to be unless they improve hygiene, eg cleaning tables after use and changing cutlery. We have travelled widely and understand change in climate etc can make you ill. This is not the problem with this hotel it has to be hygiene. Change in climate seems to be the reply by the hotel management to any of the comments left on trip advisor about illness. It needs to be seriously addressed as it has a negative impact on so many of our holidays - read the reviews.

The all inclusive drinks aren't good - glad we took a bottle of duty free Rum with us. If you like a glass of wine with your dinner you'll be disappointed. You get half a glass of not very nice wine - if you are lucky. The waiters seem to resent serving anyone - although as I said earlier the restaurant at Vista Gardens is much better.

It was a nice relaxing week and the weather made if for us, but I wouldn't go back to the hotel.

My Husband and I have just returned home after a fab 2 weeks in egypt at the laguna vista beach resort, from the moment we got there we loved every moment. Like others, I read the reviews and was a little worried and considered changing my destination, however I am so glad we did not. My husband and I are well travelled and usually go to the caribbean at this time of year but from now on we will be returning to the laguna vista beach for our dose of winter sun.

accommodation :- we booked a standard double room ,the room was spacious , clean and bright with a lovely view of the resort.

food :- there was always plenty of choice in both the main restaurant and the which way restaurant and would have thought there was always something for even the fussiest of eaters. we didn't feel the need to use the a la carte restaurants as there was always a different theme of food in the buffet restauant every night.

resort :- all the pools were spotless and clean although a little cold. The English people tendered to use the bottom pool area where mohammed on the bar and jimmy on the towels looked after our needs. The gardens and grounds were well maintained and always looked beautiful.

Entertainment :- This is the only negative comment I can make about the hotel. The entertainment was basic and consisted of a pianist and violinist nightly with a singer performing once per week. However we did not allow this to affect our enjoyment of the holiday as we made plenty of friends and made our own entertainment. If you wanted a more intimate atmosphere in the evening you could go to the Laguna Vista Gardens situated across the road. We also ventured out of the hotel to sample the local bars which also enjoyed.

Staff :- Every member of staff who we dealt with were polite and could not do enough for us.

Weather :- We had two weeks of wall to wall sunshine and a thunderstorm one evening.

Excursions :- We participated in two excursions one with Thomas Cook 'The Stargazing experience' which included a camel ride in the desert to a beduin camp where we expected to spend the evening stargazing. What we actually experienced was a quick ten minute glimpse through two telepscopes not the stargazing we thought it would be. We felt the excursion was not good value for money as it cost approx £40 each. The second excursion was booked with Dash around the pool and was a boat/snorkel trip which cost £20 each. Initially I told them I did not feel confident to snorkel but I was encouraged to try it with their support throughout which I did and this was the highlight of my holiday- It was absolutley stunning!

Taking everything into account I would definately recommend the Laguna Vista Beach to anyone seeking a relaxing or active break in the sun. Please ignore negative reviews and try it for yourself, I assure you will not be disappointed.

We’ve just arrived after a week holiday in Laguna Vista. It was a piece of summer for us because it is too cold in our country. I stayed there with my friends and we had a really nice time! There was plenty of food, which tastes as homemade. And no one of us had any problems with stomach! You always should be careful, don’t try unknown food, don’t mix food and don’t drink too much. That’s all, so don’t blame anyone! Staff was fantastic, smiley. Already on the second day everybody recognized us. In the restaurant and bars they remembered what we like drinking!
There is a second restaurant beside the beach where you can reserve a table for dinner! You should visit it, it is quiet and waiter will serve you at your table, atmosphere is very nice!
Our rooms were fantastic. I and my girlfriend stayed at standard, our friends stayed at chalet. Both rooms were cleaned daily, no bad comments about cleaning: everything was in order and daily we had new fresh towels.
So don’t hesitate and come to visit this beautiful hotel!
