... to read the signs). Beyond the enclosed area granite obelisks, and many more rooms in various stages of reconstruction lay. The temple was big enough for us to lose our friends for twenty minutes – a hard task, as we were literally the only four people visiting Karnak that day. Hopefully the pictures do it justice.

... she waited there for the clerk to take the photo from the window. Schools, clothes and books were needed by her kids and so she had to buy these before they head back to school. There is just no way I can afford to buy this so I am sorry I cannot take it, she thought to herself first before talking to the clerk. The woman suddenly shrieked that she wanted the painting badly no matter what and so the clerk did not return the portrait ...
We had the option of happy hour extending far in to the wee hours of the morning or getting up early to go snorkelling in the Red Sea. We chose the latter, and it was AMAZING! The water was crystal clear… we had a guide take us and three awesome Aussies out for a look around… The ...

... which a couple from our ship chartered for a fifteen minute sail, they were deserted as well. The hotel had few guests . . . maybe two people in the pool. The “Revolution” has halted tourism in Egypt – understandably.

Historical Traveler Reviews Aladdin Beach Resort Hurghada
We travelled to the Aladdin Hotel to meet family who were out on a two week holiday (we went for the second week only). Overall impression when we arrived at the hotel was that it was clean and quite smart. Members of our party had already been tipping the waiters and so yes, we did receive very good service. When tipping we only gave LE10 which is approximately £1, so it hardly breaks the bank and is a lot of money to the waiters when they are paid the equivalent of approx. £6 per week.
Avoid to go
Very poor organization, no securirty mesure around swiming pool, rooms dirty, bathroom with accessories broken........
I was horrified to read what some people had written about this hotel, especialy as my partner & I had just booked a late deal to go there! We travelled out on the 15th Dec 05 & stayed for 1 week.
I read the reports 1 day before i left for Aladdin hotel and most were correct, not a 4 star hotel, the poeple were nice but only after you tipped them,the best meal of the day was breakfast, lunch and evening meal was ok but luke warm. After evening meal there wasn't much to do so we always went to Abu's Bar upstairs where two guys sung, played organ and guitar they were quite good singers but sang the same songs every night.
This was our first trip to Egypt and friends had told us that the hotels in Egypt were very good, based on their experience in Sharm. Well i'm not sure what happened to the Aladdin, and as a result this will be our last visit to Egypt.
well i have to say i was there a week and the service was very good, the food was excellent and when i arrived i thought i had stepped into a story book and would i go back YES i can not wait, the weather was hot and i even got a tan which is most unusal for me!
ALADDIN BEACH RESORT - HURGHADA
We booked for 14 nights from Nov 11th - 25th
I have to write how disappointed i was with my holiday at this resort. This is the first time that i have been to Egypt and i will say that, based upon my stay here, i will not be returning!
We spent a week in October 2004 at the Aladdin Beach resort in Hurghada. We knew not to expect sterling service in Egypt, but our stay kicked off rather inauspiciously as the receptionist gave us a family room in the lower-scale adjoining Jasmine Village, rather than 2 rooms in the Aladdin Beach which we had booked. Avoid room 111 at all costs as it gives onto the breakfast area and is very noisy - they probably only keep it for clients whose rooms are not ready yet ! We eventually managed to get our proper rooms the next day.
