    Historical Traveler Reviews Siva Grand Beach Hotel Hurghada

    Absolutely fantastic

    from

    We have just returned from Grand Siva Beach, well what can I say, it was absolutely fantastic, how anyone can say anything negative about this hotel is beyond us. The service was first class, the food brilliant, the beach to die for and the rooms, fit for a king. We would highly recommend the Siva. We did take the opportunity of having a look in the other hotels in the resort, none of them compared. The towels for the beach/pool were laundered daily, rooms were cleaned daily, you always knew someone had been in, anything left lying was neatly folded and put away. We took a couple of trips, Luxor Valley of the Kings being one of them, just amazing, you even got a packed breakfast to take with you. Having gone all over the Carribean and stayed all inclusive, we have never returned to the same place, we have been back a week and I have booked to return to the Siva in 2006. Book it now you wont regret it!!!!

    Want to go to the siva again

    from

    we had a very restful two weeks and are looking to go again next year.tipping the staff little and oftenwill get you good service from them.we found all staff very helpful and polite.no problem with the germans or other nationalities.tip the towel man well the first time and he will put towels on a sun bed for you every day.(saves on getting up early)we agree about the singer but found having a few drinks before he started dulled the pain.we where in the bungalow rooms,the first room had no balcony,when asking to change rooms we were given a room with a balcony and a king size bed.the hotel and grounds were kept spotlessly clean but be beware when they spray insectercide,usually in the evening, keep the windows shut to avoid fumes.this was the only groan we have.the animation are very friendly but the evening show was run of the mill.

    Excellent 1st holiday for Baby

    from

    My husband and myself were looking to go somewhere different but not too far away, it was our 10 month olds sons first holiday. I'm so glad we decided on Hurghada & the Siva Grand Beach. We had no idea what to expect & like others had read a few bad reviews. There was construction work going on outside the hotel, roads & pavements, you didn't notice it at all from inside the hotel but it was slightly awkward with a buggy. I've no doubt it will be completed by now. The hotel itself is gorgeous, marble everywhere & a very welcoming atmosphere. It is absolutely spotless with an abundance of staff to keep it that way. We had a suite, it was a great size and again kept very clean. The room was cleaned in the morning & at night someone else came round to see if we required anything & to give us a bottle of water.The restaurants were lovely & the selection of food was great. Ww ere there for 2 weeks & there were no repeats of the previous weeks menu. There are numerous bars, we mainly sat upstairs at night and watched the entertainment. The animation team were lovely, all really friendly & great with kids. In fact all the staff were great with kids, as I mentioned we had a 10 month old son with us & the staff were daft on him. They really went out of their way to make us feel welcome & were really surprised at meeting Scottish people. Egypt as a whole is popular with Germans but remembering they have very high standards so it isn't a bad thing. All people we met British or otherwisw were lovely, very friendly and tried hard to make conversation (despite the language barrier). The hotel has a huge pool area with lots of beds & umbrellas. There is also a gorgeous beach area again with lots of beds & umbrellas. The wind blocks on the beach were great, it was quite windy when we were there but not a single cloud for a fortnight. There is a restaurant on the beach with a bar etc, also around the pool area is a snack area where you can get burgers etc. We went on the Luxor trip, it was a long day for the wee one but you are on and off a coach all day, he slept in between stops. The Valley of the Kings was an amazing experience, I'd highly recommend it.

    To sum things up I'd recommend the Siva Grand Beach to anyone. We had a great family holiday, relaxing & very enjoyable. Ww've been to Mexico & Jamaica & I'd prefer Egypt anytime. The standard of accom is brilliant & being able to go out of the hotel & be safe was great.

    All staff were very friendly & couldn't do enough to make your holiday enjoyable. They adore children!! Food, accom & entertainment (day & night) was fabulous.

    At some point in the future we'll definitely be back.

    I recommend,

    from

    After reading othes reviews i had mixed feelings on the Siva Grand. I have only been back four days and i have already looked into going out there again in September.

    As soon as you arrive at the Siva Grand you will be amazed the hotel is stunning and kept to a very high standard, staff are so friendly and happy to help at all times.A little tip goes along away with the staff.

    The food provided had a wide variety and even had a childs section. Im quite fussy with my food, but there was plenty for me to eat and gain the pounds.

    We stayed in a junior suite, the rooms were spacious, clean and the beds were fit for kings and queens, your know what i mean when you go.

    Enternaiment was provided through out the day and evening,dont worry it is in English, however you will find some will be in German, outside the hotel there are a number of shops to visit, dont be afraid to haggle there use to it, and you will get your bargains.

    I wouldn't hesistate in going back, my holiday was fantastic, the staff couldn't have done for me, the hotel was exceptionally clean and im looking forward to returning to the Siva Grand.

    Windy but amazing time

    from

    Well after reading some of the reviews about the Grand Siva and Hurghada itself was a bit nervoius prior to flight. But i have to say overall i was really impressed, ok there were alot of Germans - or possibly dutch, but they werent rude or arrogant as indicated by some reviewers.

    Rooms were lovely, apart from we requested a sea view, and we got a ground floor room that was always in the shade, and from enquiring, found that the due to the building standards our travel operator wouldnt allow us to stay in anything but the ground floor!!

    Beach was soooo beautiful, staff were very helpful and really appreciated having english speaking people around, i think they like to practise their language skills.

    Highly recommend the snorkeliing trip, and of course scuba.

    Food was good, much better than i expected. Trips were more expensive than i was told, but were generally ok - wouldnt recommend the bedouin village (not in Feb anyway) freezing cold on the red sea mountains.

    Outside of resort is worth trying, bit scary with shop owners heckling and tugging at you - didnt like that at all, and found myself having to be rude to get away from them.

    Overall though, very beautiful country, Luxor & nile are amazing, hotel was comfortable and very friendly, food good, will def go back but later in the year - feb is quite windy and cold at night!!

    The lovely siva grand beach.

    from

    Went to the Hotel Siva Grand Beach in May 2005 with my freind and our two children, a girl and a boy both age 12. We had a fabulous time. Hurghada is gorgeous, the weather, the Red Sea, the Hotel and the people. The food was very good and the Hotel was fabulously clean. The staff bent over backwards to please us. We definately intend to return in 2007. Other reviews point out the amount of construction in Hurghada and this is true although i only noticed because we could see it when we went on a boat trip other than that we would not have been aware of it. If you are looking for a lazy, indulgent holiday, basking in the sun - then this is it. Everything is extremely cheap, our stay, gifts, drinks and trips. And i mustnt forget to mention the mad italians who entertained us all day and everyday. We also visited Cairo which was very exciting. I would absolutely recommend a holiday at the Hotel Siva Grand Beach.

    Brilliant hotel

    from

    Visited this hotel at end of April 2005. Was a bit worried after reading some of the reviews.

    Needn't have worried, what an amazing hotel! Staff very pleasant and always willing to help. Plenty to eat and drink, food was pretty good, although can be a bit repetitive. Unbelieveably clean also! Verging on obsessive....

    The entertainment wasn't our cup of tea (6 women age range 20 - 50 years) - but people seemed to enjoy it. The local drinks are fine, the lager is brilliant. Its worth staying up after 12 and paying for a few drinks if you like a boogie and the Siva after dark is a good laugh once all the kids and oldies have gone to bed.

    Had no problem getting a bed at the beach or the pool, despite the resort and hotel being primarily German. All in all the german tourists were fine and happy to have a chat to you if you make the effort.

    I would highly recommend this hotel, however the resort of Hurghada is massively under construction and I dare say in a few years it will be more commercial. We had a little bot of hassle (being 6 women) when outside the hotel, but this wasn't threatening and we were NEVER scared. The taxi/bus drivers do however try and rip you off - so if you pass them a 50 pound note (5 english), they will pass you back a 50 piastre and say you've made a mistake - so be careful of this - or be like us and laugh at it and learn!

    Impressed by the Siva by the sea

    from

    Good points; Very very clean and always kept that way. One way to know how a resort prioritises its cleanliness is its conditions of the toilets in the public areas. they were always spotless. The staff are generally helpful although when this isn't the case a little tip makes this so. The rooms are again very clean and reasonably well appointed. Food was quite varied and not too spicy, and always plenty of sweets and fruit. Red wine was OK. Beer was OK (you helped yourself in the pub at night!) Lots to do there during the day at the resort but especially if you mix things up by going on a few trips (see below).

    Bad points; This is a 90% german occupied resort and this shows a little. I found that a few discreet tips here and there oiled the wheels to help redrees the balance of favour. The entertainment at night is OK for families but quite boring for adults wanting to dance the night away. There is a "disco" after midnight but the artist is truly awful by UK standards but loved by the germans. The all inclusive stops at midnight. You need to get on the beach by around 7.30am in order to claim a spot that has a windbreak. Just do what they do and put your towel down and either go for breakfast or back to bed!!

    Do's; Organise your trips through your rep. You dont pay that much more. I went to Luxor on a Sunday, Desert Safari on a Tuesday and Snorkeling on a Thursday. The expertise and care over safety by our hosts on all trips was first class.

    Dont's; Be a soft touch when you go shopping. Never offer a price let them give you the price and then barter down. Get upset with the germans - it is a waste of breath.

    Fantastic!

    from

    We booked our holiday last minute and really had no idea what to expect from Egypt or the hotel.

    As we pulled into the resort of Hurghada it is very much under development and there is a lot of construction going on. However, when you pull upto the hotel it is amazingly clean and welcoming. The check in process was very quick and easy and we were soon in our stunning suite.

    The hotel is very impressive and our first impressions were wow! After we'd unpacked we went straight for dinner and were extremely impressed with the options available. We soon discovered that from the moment you wake the options for food are endless with a huge breakfast, brunch, lunch, ice cream, afternoon tea, dinner etc etc. The food was always excellent!

    The staff were extremely friendly and always able to help and the cleanliness was amazing, they seemed to be continually cleaning and ensuring that it stayed that way.

    We cannot say how much we enjoyed our stay. My Mum and I went for a relaxing holiday and that is exactly what we had. We made lots of lovely friends there and we all had a great time. We all commented that we could not find any fault with the hotel and would recommend everyone to go to the resort and Egypt. As a rule most trips I have been on have been disappointing, but all the trips we went on were excellent, we did a day trip to Luxor with an Egyptologist who was so insightful into Egypt, his knowledge was amazing.

    We are looking forward to returning to Siva Grand Beach to see how it has developed, I think we will be regular visitors! An excellent hotel and staff!!!

    Siva "not so" Grand Beach Hotel!

    from

    Siva Grand may be "grand" but it is certainly not impressive. Yes, when you pull up to the hotel you think "Wow, we're onto a winner!" but give it 2 days of dining in the hotel restaurants and you'll soon be wishing you were back in the comfort of your own home.

    After 2 days of enjoying the sun, sand and snorkelling, both my boyfriend and I found ourselves suffering with severe cases of food poisoning or (Acute Gastroenteritis with mild dehydration) as the doctor diagnosed us with.

    My boyfriend dehydrated so much he had to have an infusion (intravenous drip) and found myself having 2 injections to stop my stomach pains and sickness. Which failed to work. We then spent the following 3 days in the same state in bed, only being able to keep down water - this is not my version of an ideal weeks holiday.

    When we finally rehydrated enough to step back out into the sun (the last 2 days of our holiday), we soon discovered we were not the only ones suffering. We soon realised that over 40 people in Siva Grand Beach were in exactly the same boat as us and all eager to complain and demanding compensation. When we spoke to other people from other hotels in Hurghada, they didn't seem to have the same problem. This proved to us that there was clearly a hygiene (or lack of it) issue.

    So for anyone who is thinking about booking accommodation at the Siva Grand Beach, please think again. Unless of course you want to go on a strict diet!
