He was very polite and willing to discuss, he asked when we are leaving, whether our stay was...

In mid-October, my wife saw a bingo offering of local touristic agency for 5-star Hurghada Egypt arrangement, and it really was cheap, so we decided to go (alone, wo/ kids, to get some rest and sun before winter comes)... Departure from Ljubljana was late at night, so we arrived at Hurghada at 3.30am, and it took us additional 40 minute...

I've been in many hotels in Egypt so I have comparison. The furniture is old, The bathrooms are also terrible. Although the choice of food is wide, it has no flavour & everything has strange taste, , The area around the hotel is big, there is a mini golf field and some shops but they are rather expensive. The service...

Beautiful sea, nice swimming pool. Food the same three times a day. Waiters are not friendly, the others are o.k..Prices in the shops are every day different. There is no bancomat in hotel. Very very strong wind all the time. This place is for people, who want skite and water sports.

This hotel is medium sized with beautiful exterior. Pool area and inside facilities are not breathtaking, they are quite small and I had a claustrophobic feel. But on the other side the atmosphere is warm. The food was ok. A lot to choose from, but in time you get bored with the same subtaste witch is inevitable. The quality was...
