We booked this holiday on a last minute thing and it was all inclusive 7 nights for £250 I
couldnt miss out on that deal the hotel was lovely and the room was huge we had a sea view
which was a bonus beacause we didnt pay for it and the people next door had payed an extra
£100 for it haha. we relaxed ate lots and went on an excursion …
... it is in the middle of the desert. The people are friendly, and have a small zoo with snakes and other small animals. Their are camels everywhere. I had a 15 minute ride on a camel. It really gives you the opportunity to see how other people around the world live. I mean, these people definitely do not have fridges, cars, built brick houses or supermarkets.
... place in Hurghada with such a cheap price.
After taking a quick shower, we planned to visit the Mosque near Marina. We traveled by taxi and were cheated for almost 2 times than it supposed have to. To avoid this, it is better to have a picture of where the place you are going and deal with the driver in written form for the cost of taxi in order to have any misunderstanding. We only took some pictures from outside the mosque as girls ...
I eventually resigned to the fact that Jordan was financially unrealistic, so I put a plan in place to extend my time in Hurghada. What a brilliant decision actually. I found a fantastic CSer who works at one of the top seven star resorts on the coast. He invited me to hang out at the resort all day, enjoy the amenities of the spa and then hooked me up with a colleague who hosted me for the night. ...
... was great we could stay at the hotel beach all day.
I would recommend this place if you ever want to stay in that region of Egypt. As for the region, don't expect to see any pyramids around, there are non. Those are in another part of the country and as for culture you can see some stuff in Luxor which I have another entry for.

Historical Traveler Reviews Coral Beach Rotana Resort Hurghada
I have just stayed in the resort with my husband and my nine year old daughter and we have had a fantastic time.
We've been to two other large hotels in Egypt (in El Gouna) and the Coral Beach is bigger, but not better. Overall I'd rate this only as a good 3star. Main problem is that it is in the middle of nowhere. The layout and general facilities are good, but without a heated pool it is not suitable for a winter break. The sea was warmer than the pool but not quite warm enough to get me in. The beach area has lots of beds and covers but the sand is a bit mixed, mainly quite gritty. The weather was good but the short days made it quite cool by about 17:30. Biggest problem for me was that the choice of food was very poor for my simple English tastes. No chips or ice cream, fresh fruit was very limited, meat was inedible on some days, however there was a great choice of bread, cereals, cakes and other sugar filled stuff, salads looked OK (but not my thing), getting good fried eggs was always a gamble. The rooms are big and comfortable and well spaced out in bungalows. The verandas are no good for sunbathing since they all face the wrong way for winter (never get any sun), and only have one chair (we asked for another but it was never supplied). We had ants in the bathroom everyday, and never received any help from reception (no ants spray supplied). The general maintenance of the hotel is reasonable however there are steps around the pool area and some of the paths near reception and leading to the beach (it's a very long walk) need considerable repair. As with many hotels the lighting in the main room was useless for reading (bathroom was very bright). TV was OK with some English programmes. There was a regular problem with the hot water "going off", which I suspect was deliberate hotel policy since it was restored quickly each time we phoned reception. The free safe in the room was handy. The bed was on the firm side which was good for us. The air conditioning worked OK but was not needed for cooling, but we did use it for heating in the evening. There is no tea making facility so take your own if not on all inclusive deal. Water from the hotel is £1 per litre bottle (no option since nowhere else to buy it). No idea about the hotel entertainment since we went out in the evenings. Overall it was reasonable value for what we paid as a late deal, but I'd be complaining if we'd paid normal price.
If you enjoy your wife and children being man handled by drunk russians at 10am in the morning this hotel is for you.
if you want the best hotel go to this one the way it is designed is amazing there were 700 people there but if you saw 10 at a time that is a lot there is so much space comfortable seating eveywhere i cannot tell you how vast an area it was as soon as you come out of the recepion area you see the beach which has horse riding camel riding massage area shop to rent diving stuff or goggles to snorkel with they do the daily entertainment there all the rooms are individual bungalows as we walked in the room we had to do a double take 2 queen sized beds the room is enormous tv with 24 hour english movies when you went to sleep you just never heard a single sound the food was plentiful good choices and good quality the staff were ALL lovely and helpful there are only a few negative things DO make sure you take mosquito plug and a tin of fly spray we didint and got bit next day bought some and never had any trouble after that also there are no shops in the area you have to go to hurghada town about 30 mins drtive although there are a couple of shops in hotel or 20 min walk to next hotel hilton beware if you want to see pymarids that it is 7 hrs each way on coach or you can fly takes 45 mins cost about 190 pound well as for hotel we give it ten out of ten will be going back again and again happy holidays from denise age 50
We decided on Egypt for guaranteed sunshine not expecting to leave the resort. Weather was all but perfect and blue skies all round if a little windy on some days.
I have just come back from a two week holiday at Coral Beach Rotana, Hurghada and it was the best holiday I have ever been on. I didn't think much of the flight out though as there was no entertainment, ie films or music to listen to which I thought was quite bad with it being about a 5 and a half hour flight and I have been on lesser hour flights and had a film or music to listen to, but the resort made up for the flight.
I spent 1 week at this hotel with my partner and two children. the holiday started badly, as our largest case containing most of the families clothes did not arrive at the baggage reclaim in Egypt. It took over an hour to finally leave the terminal being told that the case was lost and the correct protocol had been followed. Our case arrived 4 days later, the rep informed us that we had to go to the airport to collect the case, great fun not!!!! The hotel was clean with very spacious rooms. We did have to request some extra towels as they had only left 2 towels for a family of 4, we also had a toilet roll shortage. Both of the complaints were dealt with immediately and the following days we had no problems. The staff were very freindly and always happy to help. The hotel was mainly occupied by Russians and some Germans, this did not pose us any problems, but we did feel that being British was the minority. The food was good but could be a bit repeatitive if there for 2 weeks, there is a KFC and Piza Hut in town. This was about half an hour away and cost about £2.50 each way in one of the mad peugeot 504 taxis which is definatley an experience to go in. There are 2 pools, we found the main pool to be quite busy but if you go to the pool near the beach there was always plenty of sunbeds. Most days there was under 10 people at this pool which was very relaxing and quiet. Our rep arranged a day at the nearby waterpark, which was 10 mins from the hotel. This is a great day out as the park caters for the whole family with some fantastic rides.This cost £20 per adult and £10 per child which included transfers to and from the park. With this you get a reserved sunbed each and a tour guide for the day,which looked after your sunbeds and was there if you had any questions or problems. He spoke very good english and you would always see him bobbing around in the pool when the wave machine came on !! Defentley money well spent, the kids loved it !! Over all a lovely hotel for familys and couples seeking a relaxing holiday and close enough if you want the lively town as well.
Myself and my cousin stayed there in November for our birthdays. we were part of a small group of English holiday makers to be the first to stay in this hotel. the staff went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfy.
This hotel is set away from the main area of Hurghada just to the South. This does mean that you are away from the more active areas of the town but it also means that you are away from the crowd of hotels that have sprung up near the centre. Its location means that the beach area for the Coral Beach is quiet and not crowded. We felt the beach was lovely and enjoyed snorkelling around the reefs within meters of the hotels beach area. Whilst we did not go diving we are lead to believe that this is excellent in this area too.
