... Gourna on the Red Sea. Our first impression of El Gourna was, "we must have made a wrong turn somewhere". Unlike most of the places we have stayed at for the last 4 months, El Gourna was very posh. Our room had a view of the marina, complete with all the million dollar yachts! It was a nice to end the trip in style!
This will sadly be our last post while traveling with Overland Oasis. We have ...
... complex chatting. These moments were much needed in Egypt to get our heads straight and absorb what we have seen in the last week. I have never seen so much sites and history in all my travel days as I have seen in the last week and you don't really have time to think about everything, but this kind of gave us some time to reflect on it and write about it. Hopefully the next stop in Sharm El Sheikh will be a lot better than here. ...
... than a little freaked out that when we would all swim off in different directions… after our "guided snorkel" we had a little free time, and the inner child in us had us jumping, bombing and flipping off the boat. In the afternoon we were back on the Bus, heading to Luxor for the night.
... boat, Marlin, along a wobbly plank. It was overrun by Russians. One of them was wearing a captain's hat with no sense of irony. Another was wearing a floppy purple paisley print hat. He was male. El Capitaino's wife fainted during the diving briefing. Some other guy sat through the entire Russian diving briefing until revealing at the end that he didn't speak Russian, only English. I think it may have been the part where the instructor asked everyone to raise their ...
... the room is comfy and the whole apartment is very stylish. The area is very relaxing I had great time by the pool. Weather was great shopping is cheap so cooking cost nothing and you’ll not get food poisoning like in the hotels. I’d suggest taking the personal driver what the 3Sis Apartments offer on their website as it was really handy and he helped ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sunrise Mamlouk Palace Resort Hurghada
Wir haben im Mamlouk für eine Woche vom 7-14. Dezember 2007
We have just returned from a week in Mamlouk Palace in Hurghada, Egypt. It was only the hotel's second season as they only opened in May 2007 so I would expect many more reviews in time! The hotel is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before. It was so lovely that it was hard to leave. Even though they have only been opened for 2 seasons - you wouldn't know.
Overall it was a good (not excellent) experience at the hotel. We stayed 7 nights from Dec. 18. Rooms quite large (we stayed in a family room). One heated pool. The 2 water slides were not finished yet and who knows when, because no one worked on it all week while we were there! We went next door to Sunrise Garden so the kids could use the small water slide there. Sun beds were plenty at the pool and beach and towels are available for free. It was funny that by the pool it was really windy, and it was better suntanning by the beach. The beach is clean and and sandy. Not many swimmers, sea was quite cool. Food in main restaurant was good, but all week it was more or less the same. Service was good and friendly in restaurants and at the bars/snack bars. The kids loved the pizza/hamburgers and I enjoyed the spicy meat sandwiches for lunch at the pool/beach bars. Directly outside the hotel there is nothing to do. Looked like quite a walk to some nearby stores.
Hotel nicht zu empfehlen
Service und Ausstattung gut, Essen teilweise verkocht und gewürzlos, häufiger Fluglärm, 80 % russische Gäste, mittelmässiger Strand, Baulärm
We stayed at Mamlouk Palace for 2 weeks, 6 - 20 Nov 2007.
This hotel was a great choice...I didn't know much about itbefore going but I surprise by the hotel and area. the hotel is not far from the airport but is it quite far from Hurghada town, you can get a taxi to the town there and back for about $20USD, if there is a car full this works out quite cheap. The hotel has a shuttle bus return in the early evening for about 25ED or £2.50!!
Ich mag die Sunrise Ressorts wegen der guten Qualität des Services und der Hotels. Ich bin zum Mamlouk gegangen ohne eine Vorstellung zu haben, was ich erwarten konnte (es gab sehr wenige Kommentare im Internet) und ich muss sagen, dass es eins der besten Hotels gewesen ist, in denen ich in Ägypten war. Die Zimmer sind gross und sauber, die Pools sind riesig. Das Essen in den Restaurants ändert sich (man hat natürlich weniger Teller die ganze Zeit) verschiedene Fleischsorten, Pasta, Salate, Früchte, Kuchen......köstlich.
J'aime les clubs Sunrise en raison de la grande qualité des hôtels et des services qu'ils offrent. Je suis allé au Mamlouk pratiquement sans savoir à quoi m'attendre (il y avait très peu de commentaires sur internet) et je dois dire que c'est le meilleur hôtel que je connaisse en Egypte. Les chambres sont grandes et propres, les piscines immenses. Les plats proposés dans les restaurants changent souvent (sauf certains bien entendu qu'on trouve en permanence). Il y a divers types de viande, de pâtes, de salades, de fruits, de gâteaux... un délice ! Au bar de la piscine et de la plage on trouve aussi de bien bonnes choses telles que pizzas, sandwiches avec viande grillée, hamburgers, jus de fruits frais, vins et des tas d'autres choses que vous aurez envie d'essayer mais vous n'y arriverez pas ! Le service de chambre est feutré et discret, personne ne vous demandera un pourboire. Le Select Garden et le Mamlouk partagent une plage. Si vous voulez plonger avec un tuba, il y a une sorte de récif là où "stationnent" les bateaux. C'est petit et il y a peu d'espèces de poissons, mais c'est mieux que rien. Je vais y retourner bientôt, j'espère, pour d'autres vacances fantastiques.
I like Sunrise resorts due its really good quality services and hotels. I went to Mamlouk having almost no idea what to expect (very few reviews in the internet) and I must say it is the best hotel I've been in Egypt. Rooms are big ang clean, pools are huuge. Food in restaurants often changes (of course you have few plates which are all the time) diffrent kinds of meat, pasta, salads, fruits, cakes... delicious.
