Briefly, it is my 3rd time visiting this hotel location: 12 km outside Hurghada so is is subjective if you like privacy you are going to like it cos it has most of the facilities you need inside, else if you want to have a stroll at night by the city and go collect some souvenirs then you are obligated...

The hotel is a good example of the terrible consequences of the revolution. Hurghada became a ghost town, with thousands of unfinished apartments, guest houses and hotels. This huge four star hotel was built before the revolution for the well-off middle class of Western Europe.

I'm very regretful to waste my time in this horrible hotel. It doesn't deserve even a single star.
