It doesn't deserve 5 stars. Very nice interiors that were made poorly. The electrical outlets are sideways in the lobby exposing the wiring behind them. The nice chairs have stains and cigarette holes. When we arrived, they did not have our reservation and could not let us check in until someone from the head office confirmed it and we booked this hotel days before. I'm not sure what took more than two days to confirm this. My wife's I-phone copy of the reservation was not enough, so she had to go in the manager's office and forward them the reservation from her email because the internet access in the lobby cost money. This took 30 minutes. The food was not good. There is chicken on the barbeque everyday for lunch and they put what is leftover in a dish for dinner and add some kind of sauce to it. The fish was cold and uncooked. Sometimes the soup was cold. The rice was burned. The ice cream that is supposed to be available as a snack was never available. The pool bar was supposed to have pizza, but I am allergic to cheese and my wife doesn't like tomato sauce, but this pizza is pre made, so we were unable to take advantage of this. The room was full of mosquitos. The wife got bit over 20 times. We had laundry done for a promotional price of something like $16. This was cheaper than the normal paying by the item. We were having a romantic moment in the room when we got a phone call saying the laundry was done. I told them we would pick it up at dinner time. Minutes later, a man knocked on our door. My wife answered the door in a towel only. Five minutes later, we received another knock ruining our moment. Another hotel worker wanted to give us bottles of water, but I think this would be the first white girl he saw in a towel and the whole hotel was alerted looking for excuses to get a peak at her. These bottles should have been delivered when the room was being cleaned and this man actually opened the door with his room key before we had a chance to answer it. After looking through our laundry items, she had a nice lingerie set that was no longer pink and was now grey color. A T-shirt was no longer cream and was grey. Someone in the laundry room now has a pair of her underwear for a souvenir and never returned. We contacted management and they said "what do you want us to do?" It is their job to find a solution to this problem. These things happen in hotels, but certainly not in 5 star hotels. When we wanted to use the internet, we had to wait for the cashier, who was not available at all times. When we went to the lobby bar and wanted wine, the staff had to go to restaurant to get wine and put it in a water bottle before returning to give you a glass of wine 15 minutes later. The rum was cheap and watered down and it was very hard to get drunk. Our hotel was not on the beach and we had to take a shuttle there. The road to the beach was dirty and he parked in a muddy car park. The hotel shuttle door did not open from the inside and was very small. I'm not sure how it shuttles people in peak season with only fitting 7 people in the shuttle. When we asked for a cocktail on the beach bar, he grabbed a glass out of the fridge that already had some liquid in it. He dumped the liquid out and poured our drink in that glass.

... have given us where ever we have travelled in this amazing country. We both feel very privileged to have travelled to amazing temples, pyramids and tombs and learned all about life in ancient Egypt. We suspect that Australians are thought of very highly here in Egypt and we felt like we received special treatment everywhere we stayed because of it. Egypt could certainly do with more visitors from western countries as we ...

By the evening our health was restored and we were ready to continue our exploring taking a walk outside the resort to a Couple of souvenir shops adjacent to the ...
After a late checkin to the Palm Beach Resort (10:00pm) we were up at 7:00 am raring to go on day 1 of our Hurghada snorkelling trip on the Aquarius Dive Companies 'Aloha' dive boat. We headed out at 8:30 am for a 40 minute trip to the first dive site - reef ledge with a number of pinnacles. The depth was around 12 metres and visibility extended more than 50 metres just perfect for our day of snorkelling. With a bright clear day we had excellent conditions to view some stunning corals and ...
... arriving at camp at 2, is the sun on the tent, oh it was lovely! so hot and relaxing. The warm cargos I brought finally dried and are a delight to have when the sun went down. No shaking yet! No hot water to fill the water bottle but it does feel warmer tonight. Wind is back but not as cold. We have the mountains to the West, with an amazing sunset and the Red Sea back on our East. This camp is my favourite so ...
