... br> I’m slowly starting to make friends, friends that don’t replace the ones back home, but their good people and I’ve been lucky enough to see Egypt through their eyes. There is one guy in particular that has been nothing but amazing to me. He’s taken me under his wing and become a better friend to me than people I have known for ...
... and the hostages were released. The next story concerned the Beirut Hostages of which there were many. As last time Terry Waite took us to the point where he was about to get into a car with the hostage takers and then said, ‘sorry times up, you’ll have to wait till next time!’ This was predictable but very funny.
The next lecture concerns his 5 years in solitary confinement and how he coped. The final ‘session of enrichment for the morning’ was ...

I was lucky to have just the guide, a german and myself on the tour. We had a 5 minute tutorial on how to ride quad bikes, then we were off. I was well prepared, and bought jeans, ...

We really love everything in this little town ((food, service, friendly staff, night life, variety from buffet, facilities, clientele and the range of bars) and no pressure to buy anything. Hope their tourism industry would get better soon due the political issues happening in Egypt.
... it is so crowded with tourists and so walked further away from the crowd. It is so much better on the further end of the beach. After 1 hour and 30 minutes of free time on the beach, we returned to our boat for lunch. In the afternoon, we have snorkeling at another two sites. Comparing to the island we just went in Sabah, the red sea water is not as clear as there. Our tour finished at about 3p.m. Overall, we enjoy our day and the trip is a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sea Star Beau Rivage Hurghada
Was für ein Urlaub
Es war nicht einfach sich für ein Hotel in Hurgharda zu entscheiden, nachdem wir aber vom Sea Star gehört hatten, wollten wir es einfach ausprobieren. Es war einfach nur wunderbar. Freundliche Menschen, die alles getan haben, damit sich ihre Gäste wohlfühlten und wie zu Hause vorkamen. Ich kann dieses Hotel allen Gruppen oder Pärchen und Alleinstehenden empfehlen, es kommt einfach jedem gut und Sie werden bestimmt mit einem Lächeln zurückkehren.
I stayed with a friend at Sea Star Beau Rivage for 1 week and had a great time in this superb hotel. I can highly recommend this place for those who have high expectations in terms of the quality of service as well as the location. The Sea Star Beau Rivage Hotel is located approximately 10 minutes (by car) from the heart of Hurghada and therefore it is quiet and ideal for a relaxing stay. The rooms are very clean and most of them overlooking the sea. The hotel's private beach is probably the best in all Hurghada - it is sandy and very clean (the hotel staff clean it 2-3 times (!) a day), ideal for swimmers as well as for families with small children. Most importantly, it comes with its own coral reef, which makes it especially attractive for all who like to snorkel. There are enough sunbeds for every guest and the hotel staff (highly professional and attentive) make sure that you get those sunbeds that you really want. They also provide clean beach towels every day. There is a diving/aqua center, which offers all kinds of sporting activities and their own staff is highly trained and very friendly. The restaurants are quite good, much better than we expected. The food was well prepared and plenty, sometimes it was difficult to make a decision as there were too many choices. There are two clean swimming pools with plenty of sunbeds, however, we did not use them as we preferred the sea. There is entertainment in the evening (live music and singing), a small disco and 2 bars, however, if you want to throw yourself into the nightlife, you should take a taxi downtown where it's at. The hotel's surroundings are not very nice (lots of construction), however, it was quiet during our stay. These days you will find ongoing construction everywhere you go in Hurghada. There are small souvenir shops, pharmacies and supermarkets right in front of the hotel, which are open until midnight. Nobody has ever stopped us when we carried beverages in the hotel from the nearby supermarket.
During our stay, the guests were mostly from Italy, France, Germany, Poland. We were the only two Hungarians there.
All in all, we had a great stay and we would definitely go back to this hotel in the future.
General Insight to Hotel
This hotel in its self is really amazing. Very clean, own private beach with beach towels provide. These could also be used if going out on snorkelling/diving excursions.Well worth the 4-5* rating. The staff on the whole where very obliging and well mannered. The down side is the food in the main restaurant was very bland and poor in view of the hotel rating. Also the hotel is situated on the outskirts of Hurghada and only 2-3 shops outside. The main resort being 15 minutes drive. No good to people who enjoy a walk after their dinner. There are not many British guests residing. At the time we stayed there were only 4 of us. Mainly aimed at Geman, Austrian, Italian and French guests. The snorkelling along the sea shore was fantastic.Aim the hotel at more British guests and certainly would return
What a ride
it was hard picking a hotel to stay in, in hurgada, but me and my friends we heared about the sea star hotel and we decided to give it a shot. we never regret that action till now. the stay over there was simply amazing, friendly people working over there and they just do whatever it takes to make the guest smile and feel like at home. i would highly recommend this hotel for group of friends, couples or even alone, it just suits every mode and i'm sure that you will end up with a smile on your face.
The best hotel for special vacation!
My trip to Egypt was the birthday present from my family and i went to Hurghada with my sister. That was the most memorable trip I ever had in my life (I was travelling to many European countries before)!
The hotel arranged a GREAT surprise for me- the flowers in the room upon our arrival and then at the dinner time all the staff at the restaurant over suddenly came to our table singing happy birthday and carring a very nice cake. I should say that staying in this hotel was a real holiday for me already so imagine my feelings when I received such a warm welcome and such warm congratulations!
The only big pity was that we booked a trip for one week- for sure it is not enough if you want also to see the country a little bit. So now we plan to go back with all the family (of course to the same hotel) for minimum two - three weeks this autumn.
I want to thank the staff for their hospitality and outstanding cleanliness of our room! Really- it was the best birthday present I ever got!
I cannot say anything bad about Sea Star hotel - I spent one week with my boyfriend and we were really impressed by the friendliness of the employees....they were always smiling and kind to us; always there when we needed something....so if you really want to experience the hospitality of Egypt you should go to Sea Star!
Theft in the Sea Star Beau Rivage Hurghada
We are a Hungarian couple who stayed in Sea Star Beau Rivage Hotel Hurghada in January 21-25. 2005. On January 24th. we returned in our room from dinner and we discovered that our private belongings disapparead from our room: My Canon digital camera, My wife's Olympos camera, two Nokia mobile phones, my wife's wallet with money and creditcard. There is no safe in the room and the door was locked. Someone opened it with a key. We informed the hotel security and management who behaved in an arrogant, unpolite, non-cooperative way. Their approach was that it couldn't happen in a five star hotel. In late night at 2 a.m. we got to the local police station to get a report. I had to describe the story first in English but I was threatened that I should not mention the name of the hotel and the theft otherwise we should stay for two other days while the investigation would be carried out. Finally I got a short report only in Arabic laguage.
We are convinced that the theft was committed by some hotel employees.
Had a great time
I stayed at this hotel the last week in november, and I had a great time.
I am an american, and I got a very good deal on this hotel by having my girl freind in Kiev Ukraine book the vacation. I traveled to Kiev, and then we flew together to hurghada. It is much cheaper for Ukrainians to vacation in egypt for some reason. I experienced the same problem with the egyptian men looking at my girlfreind, but I do not have a problem with that because she is very attractive and she gets looks any where we go. I can understand why the egyprian men glare at a good looking women, because the local women dress very conservitivly and there is not much to look at. We stayed in one of the rooms on the ground floor with a sliding door that opened right onto the pool, and they have a beautiful swiming pool. Staying on the ground floor also makes it very easy to get to the beach. One tip about the beach, pick up your beach towlels the evening before, and before breakfast the next day go out to the beach and claim a good spot by spreading your towels on a pair of prime lounge chairs along the edge of the water. It gets very crowded and you may not get a very good location if you wait untill noon to go to the beach. The food was average, but I thought the hotel staff in the restaurant was very plesant and helpfull. The food came free with the vacation package and I got a very good deal so I can not realy complain about it. If we got bored with the food at the hotel we went into the city to eat. It was very inexpensive and interesting. The hotel has some strange rules about not being able to bring any outside beverages in the hotel, but you can purchase a bottle of wine in the restaurant for about 8 US dollars. We went on 4 excursions. Snorkeling, jeep safari, Ciro, and Luxor. We had a great time at all of them. I recomend the luxor. It includes a boat ride on the nile, and trip to a banana farm. The only down side of the trip was all the people trying to sell me things on the beach while I was trying to relax. I got a little tired of saying no to them. I would recomend this hotel to any one. It is much nicer than most hotels in the Ukraine, and is also up there with European standards.
