Alas, piktogramki issued a circular error-so I can not express their feelings through emoticons ...

second, this is only my assessment of the hotel, not a story about the rest ...

third, look at the photos, they pass my perception ...

And so - December, twenty below in Muscovy, before that, a week back from the fall of Italy, there was an opportunity somewhere else to fly, the desire to finally get to the Maldives and received verbal confirmation of the tour I went to pay for it (my mistake, that does not directly operator, although the tour has found himself but decided to make a curtsy, a friend tourism office ", just like Winnie from Luzha) and the way I was pleased when ordering operator has not confirmed obeschennoe, and in return offers Bali ...- no, not again ...- sea turns into a quagmire, but in five time zones in the plans was a difference of no more than two (wanted to rest from the Caribbean).

Move the flight, given that every day in the direction of January has already increased the price of leisure, I remembered the good reviews tourism professionals in Turdome of AZUR network in Egypt, and even just traveling flashed "Martian Chronicles" with reference to the new hotel CITADEL AZUR RESORT, yes a new hotel (2009), and I asked the girls to make a request for ten nights ...

While I was riding towards evening in Moscow came to a confirmation and hotel and flight at the last moment (at 19:30) we had time to prepay the tour package Nathalie Tours and in the morning at 10 o'clock TRANSAERO ferried me Hurgadinsk ...

I was not in this town for six years, yes, a lot of build!

Lucky with the weather, of 11 days, there was one very windy, but a couple of moderates, but the wind was not cold (remembered with horror the icy winds in November 2004, when the night temperature was 9.8 degrees, and day 18-20), now less than 18-20 degrees at night never happened, and the day was a couple of days to 28-in general, decent VELVET SEASON!

Van shustrenko reached the most southern "countryside", which is known as Sahl Hasheesh, a new development area of Hurghada, where standing modern hotel complexes. If the settlement failed to produce a standard operation, the transfer Bakhshish receptionists ... -I sat in the armchair in the lobby, transferman Natalie Tours left in an adjacent room where the reception and returned with a set of magnetic keys, said that I live on the first line and gave me a battle in which golfkare drove me to 5 Corps in the northern, quiet part of the hotel and I have successfully "colonized" ...

I noticed that and hotel guide from Natali Tours (Svetlana, thank you!) And managers constantly wondered whether I was happy holidays and all of Lee Ok, so I felt that the system operates on a customer's good rest!




The hotel and the area

Hotel in a series of conceptual-ARCHITECTURAL-embodied historical theme MEDIEVAL MEDITERRANEAN Ottoman CITY-The Citadel, we knew the palace in Levadia and some sanatoriums ...

an abundance of stone (sandstone and coral blocks), multi-level building, with its narrow streets and climbing stair passages interspersed with palm alleys, flower gardens, pools and at medium levels, beach bar and a large lagoon-port full range of pleasure vosprinimaetsya as architectural game labyrinth, situated man!

Probably the most enjoyable, All rooms has a sea view hotel stretches along the edge of the sea, built on the coastal cliffs, and thus the lower and from the top (actually the ninth floor otkryvaetsya wide sea view (to me, really like from the top, bird's-eye view, but bottom of its advantages.)

Due to its vytyanusti along the sea, about the fact that the hotel desert rocks even forget, because you see only seaside oasis, far three islands and the Cape, where there is an old Hurghada.

I lived in a remote 5 buildings, there is quiet, who likes tusovaptsya, to hurry in the 2-body closer to the points of communication ...

Overall impression-ALL very stylish! The architectural design, the game is the sun in the natural stone walls, the ratio of buildings, greenery and flowering of surfaces, the beach and the sea was given latitude, and it all supports the lifting of the atmosphere and elegant service, so form the style of this hotel ...




Number

I had a standard room, a large, well-zoned, large tables of polished stone, and nice furniture. In the sea panoramic window and a large window in the shower (shower with a view to the sea horizon, agree STYLISH!)

The hotel is new (2008) boetomu populated but not erased.

Large balcony, about 10 square meters. meters, which I successfully sunbathed on plank beds (borrowed from the cold pool (there are a couple heated) on a windy day, hiding from the north wind behind a wall mezhnomernoy. Ibid pleasant evening sipping tea in a little chair ...

Plus, with the first floor of the lower level, I went to a small esplanade and under it already and the beach with the Royal pool.




Service personnel

-Everything is correct and pleasant.

-You know, and in restaurants and bars, working youth, the English know all that many, to some extent, not only understand but also obschayutsya in Russian.

, As staff are young, you not only served as many happy and chat, because through you, they learn about the world (unfortunately not all Koreans make them positively understand Russia (and the Ukraine), but it is a mass disease hurgadovschiny-surzhikogovoryaschy lumpen, although at this hotel and money and family, as the hotel costs "nemnogopodorozhe").

Personnel Citadel, THANK YOU FOR GOOD SERVICE!




Catering, Restaurant

TASTY-powered systems and all-inclusive-stylish!

, And pastries and desserts, tasty, tasty, tasty! In a Departure Order on New Year's holiday home, Egyptian sweets and cake, the people were very pleased, appreciated!

A meal at sea lagoon and the sea and on the upper level, overlooking the sea, gave very beautiful!

-Thanks and cooks and waiters!

what happened was hit on the Christian Christmas, in the conference hall was organized by a nice dinner, everything was-stylish, and food and interiors and a live concert.

An interesting observation, the Arabs celebrate a holiday mezhduunarodny MERRYCHRISTMAS-to which all and congratulate (ha! As Consumer Society leveled).




Beach, sea, pool

the beach is not quite standard, it is not quite familiar sandy beach (it's at the Royal bathing or swimming in the lagoon) but not with the reef pontoon-like in a hotel next door here to see prices ryf, to a depth of order "metrdvadtsat" aligned technique and divided into sections of the breakwaters harvested coral blocks in this area, people bodit and examines intermittent fish, and then float over the coral. Do not forget priobristi slippers and necessary for snorkanya ...

Swimming should be in the above baths, and eggplant and athletes have learned a couple of heated pools and a small group jacuzzi pool with sea water.




Entertainment, Animation

I tried to shy away from outdoor activities, but the corner of my eye saw the Italian team-animated-day doing a belly dancer, played volleyball and shot in the dart ... in the evening at 21:30 were concerts in the lobby, a disco club ...

The amphitheater at sea is not effective, perhaps because-winter or in the lounge in chairs cozier (good bar nearby)?

As always, the Red Sea in the harbor of partying divers, boat Aloha them regularly somewhere exported ...

I liked the hotel, there are bicycles and Europeans traveled to multilevel streets hotel complex (the Russians in this byvli not seen, they are partying at the bar or urinated in volleyball, jumping thick puzami).

SK brand-new-series with heated pool and Junior continuously tightened somewhere running, swinging and swimming, measuring miles ...

Zavlekateli daily tried to engage the people in the Spa Complex for massages, baths and vsyagie aromogryazeterapii ...

The room has internet through the telephone network, and in the lobby Wi-Fi ...

TV over 40 channels, three of them Russian ...

In Hurghada, three times a day walks free shatll (by appointment).




Conditions for families with children

Children, many, mostly small, from 2 to 7, because the core campers are young couples up to 30 ...

Under the Christmas for Children was organized by special programs, and they decorated the Christmas tree and receive gifts, for they were two separate celebratory dinner, and they kept a small group of partying ...

In my opinion, everyone was happy, even in the knowledge of corals (see photo)!




CONCLUSIONS:

(*****)

Decent and stylish, very good price / quality ratio!

Five of decent democratic measured rest, according to the contingent, young couples and families of middle age. (Retirees not much for them, apparently, some expensive and it is advanced, "mutton", retired).

Thanks to the team CITADEL AZUR RESORT Sahl Hasheesh for pleasant ten days (and Natalie Tours, for organizing the trip)!

-Boldly RECOMMEND this hotel complex!

little remark, I was at the hotel, during the Catholic Christmas, and how is it not strange hotel was filled with nothing more than a third and had a sense of freedom and not have to hustle for a place under the Egyptian sun and sea!

We stayed one week in Citadel azur. The hotel is unique and exquisite.
The Jakuzzi corner is very beatiful and the snorkling offers a great variety of colorful fish from the red sea.
The rooms are not reaching the five star level in terms of the material used (sofa, bedcloth,... ) but they are ok.
The whole resort is really stunning, so it comprensates well.

Next time we travel to Hurghada Egypt, there is no doubt that this is the hotel we will return back to. This big All Inclusive hotel was really appealing to us from the first moment we arrived. It was clean, quiet, and the staff was there for you to help you whenever you needed them. Delicious meals and drinks were served at almost any time you want or need, from early morning to late night. The only thing that we missed at the hotel during our 8 days stay was a Cash Machine.

We just came back from our trip to Egypt, and what a trip it was!!! Fantastic! We were there for two weeks. The first week we were on a cruise on the Nile onboard the lovely Nile Sapphire (we highly recommend it) and the second week we stayed at the Citadel Azur. The hotel is wonderfully located right on the beach. Sun, sand and fresh Red sea-water is right outside your door. PS!! Bathshoes are a must, due to sharp rocks and corals. If you prefer the pools you have a few to choose from. We didn´t try them, but they looked lovely. The food was mostly great, seemed clean and well prepared, service was good and the egyptians are SO nice! Friendly and humourous. However, the vendors at the markets and bazaars can be extremely pushy. For us our stay at the Citadel was all we could have wished for. We had had a great, but busy week along the Nile, with excursions and outings every day. So the tranquility of the Citadel was just perfect for us. Be aware, however, that the resort is about 20 kilometres from the town of Hurghada, and you have to go by bus or taxi if you want to go anywhere outside the hotel-grounds. Having done so many different things and seen so much during week 1 we had no need to go anywhere outside of the hotel. We had the beach, good food, drinks, tennis-courts, gym, snorkeling, some shops, cafè, restaurants, different types of activities right there. We also recommend the snorkeling-trip to the coral-reefs around Giftun Island. We LOVED it at the Citadel Azur.
