Imperial Shams Resort
Ranked #189 of 222 Hotels in Hurghada
Reviewed 29 August 2012

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 in hotel is pushy. The best thung is the beach clean and with beautiful small reef. The worst thing are rats aroud the swimming pool they run even during the day and the service has a huge problems to control them.

Upgraded to the Superior room and it was awesome....private balcony, walking around nude all the time...total freedom. Beach was great you could do anything you wanted....kitesurf, windsurf, scuba, fish, snorkel, swim, local tours or absolutely nothing....Recommend the ATV tour.....I was the 1st American most of the staff had ever seen so they all loved practicing thier english....Bar boys were the best.....Dr. Happy (Said), Bashim, Mohammed are just to name a few.....Egypt isn't known for the best tasting local spirits, but if you drink enough of them they taste really good.
Food was plentyful.....All in all, nice work!!!

Room Tip: Superiour rooms are very very superior...ask for one on the top floor...more privacy

This is the best hotel I have been in Red Sea area - Hurghada. The hotel is not too small, not too big. Rooms clean and well furnished. Fridge always refilled. New towels and bed making each day. Beach is soooo nice - wide, nice sand, close to reefs. Meals so good, different kinds, without any stomach problems. People working there are so nice, kind and always helpfull, mostly in the reception - really good knowledge about the hotel, quick response for asking and problems, they know many languages, are always smiled and ready for help. I remember one man from the reception, named Salama - he was really helpfull, kind and so competent. I was in this hotel twice but for sure I'll be back soon.

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.
