The hotel is located directly at the waterfront.
The property is a medium-rise building, set back from the road and directly at the beach with a modern architecture and interesting features.
The reception and lobby areas are very large, with wide columns and marbled floors. Furnishing is classic in style and very elegant.
This is a luxury hotel, with good facilities in an ideal situation. It is recommended for all markets. 10/08
The large rooms are well furnished, some with views over the pool and some over the sea. Decoration is neutral and very tasteful. The marbled bathrooms are in excellent condition, as are the bedrooms.
The main restaurant is very large and well appointed in a classic style and serves an excellent selection of predominantly international cuisine, with some local specialities and arabic dishes.

Victoria from Windsor
“ This is our 2nd visit, and we were made to feel like we were long lost relatives! Fab food, great rooms, staff were so accommodating. Wine is ok, vodka not great, but that's the same wherever you go in Egypt. We had towel animals every day, each more inventive than the last. We had a fabulous time . Would recommend.
“ Top Tip: Greek restaurant was fab and the Asian restaurant had fantastic choices

David from Tamworth
Hotel staff were excellent. The hotel itself is not European 5* standard, more very good 3* but the facilities are more than adequate for a winter break. The superior room that I stayed in was very spacious and clean. The fittings were a bit 'tired' and there was in separate shower cubicle. The food varied, we ate in 3 of the 4 'A La Carte' restaurants and the Lebanese was far and away the best. The food in the main restaurant was good at lunchtime but a bit repetitive for evening meals.
The main problem we encountered was with the 'all inclusive' package, it does not include any spirits - this may not seem to be much of a problem but the local beer and wine is not the greatest. The restaurants are constantly trying to sell imported wines and 'special' meals - this would be fine but the prices they are charging are far too high - anyone buying a bottle of Moet at nearly £300 would have to be more than a bit crazy, all of the wines were vastly overprices and as a result we never saw anyone buy a bottle. The same was the case with the 'special' food - £30 extra charge for a 250 gramme rib eye steak seemed far too much.
“ Top Tip: There is nothing outside the hotel - do not expect to be able to walk to any other place of interest.

it`s on it`s own. You can hire a taxi for a night out in Hurghada, Plenty of night life.
Hard Rock, Hurghada Marina-night club, bars, loads of places to eat,Ministry of sound- plus the Sheriton Rd with all the tacky shops.Great fun.
Yvonne from St. Albans
Fantastic Hotel, can't fault it.
Staff always very eager to please. Ala Carte restaurants great, buffet good. Rooms spacious and clean. Beach very good within a Bay - sea very very calm - great for Children and non confident adult swimmers.
Would definitely return again.
“ Top Tip: The Asian restaurant is a little Gem!
