... had gone flat and the computer refusing to do anything. Having fallen asleep so early Jo was wide awake at 0300 and actually went for a nocturnal wander around the ship in search of a cup of tea. She managed to find tea but no hot water, actually between 0200 and 0400 there is no form of nourishment available on the ship, continental breakfast starts at 0400. Nick was up at twenty past 5 having accidentally had his 8 hours sleep and in the gym for opening time at six ...

El Gouna is a paradise for beach holiday along the red sea coast. You can even rent an apartment here for permanent home. It consists of 20 islands surrounded by picturesque lagoons and Arabic style architectures. You could easily access here by Go bus from Cairo or Hurghada.

The stay in our hotel, Arena Inn, is unforgettable. Due to low season now, it costs only USD33/night. After having a big ...

... 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 ...

... I like to cook and so we went in an Egyptian spice shop. The shop keeper is so enthusiastic in explaining every spice in his shop. He also told us the recent politics issue they had in their country and the reason why they don’t like America. They wanted to control their own country by themselves. The tourism industry is getting worse by the news. It is safe to travel ...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    Fantastic!

    from

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

    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.
