... 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.
Our last stop with Overland Oasis (our overlanding company) was the resort town ...
... the Red Sea, but decided not to. We wanted to relax a bit. The
beach here was not located near the hotel, so that was a shame. It has been warm every day since we arrive in Egypt, but our day off to relax was a bit moody and there were clouds out. These days in Hurghada were a bit of a shame in terms of both in and out of the hotel. We had some quiet moments sitting by the cold pool while listening to music and walking ...
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 ...
... for Russians. Fat ones who like to wear Hawaiian shirts. Excluding this (and the strange Russian buffet breakfast) it is pretty good. The next morning we were heading out for a snorkelling expedition. With us were Tony, Matthew and Javier, from our tour group, who were doing diving. Tony and Matthew can't swim but seemed extremely optimistic about diving. Dan was braced to do some life-saving should it be required. We were driven out to the tourist area and ...
Had my holiday there and it was GREAT!!! This was my 3rd time in Hurghada, but my first self catering holiday as I'd always go to resorts before. This apartment is way higher standard than any hotel I’ve stayed in Hurghada before and I’ve been in 5x hotels. The apartment I stayed is brand new, nice furnishing, big plasma TV. The kitchen is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews SUNRISE Holidays Resort Hurghada
My husband, two teenage daughters and I stayed at the Sunrise holidays resort in April and it was one of the best hotels we have stayed in. We stayed all inclusive and could not fault the food or the service given.
we have just returned from a weeks stay at the sunrise holiday resort resort.what an absolutly fantastic hotel, out of this world. the hotel is immaculately clean and tidy 24/7, the food was fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner, your rooms are cleaned daily including towels, you are supplied with seperate towels for the beach and pool. the staff from reception, porters, cleaners, restaurants, to bar staff are all fantastic, polite and more than helpful. thanks to thomas cook and sunrise holiday resort for what can only be described as a fantastic and out of this world holiday.
My husband and I have just returned form a two week holiday here and had a brilliant time. The hotel is excellent, very clean and the staff right through from the porters to the bar staff couldn,t do enough for us. It is not a hotel that I would take young children to do as the evening entertainment for them is limited to a kiddies disco every evening and thats it. Would we go back again? definately
Just returned from the Sundrise Holiday resort yesterday. It was completely out of this world and exceeded all our expectations. I went with my mum and as two females aged 19 and 45 we were concerned that we would be hassled. The staff in the hotel cannot do enough for you, if you leave even a small tip or are polite enough to say please and thankyou they will bend over backwards for you. The position of the hotel was not a great concern to me and my mum as we were planning to just relax for a week. However we did go on two trips with Thomas Cook and were picked up from reception. If you are wanting to leave the hotel everynight, you have to be prepared to run the gauntlet of local shopkeepers. There are shops in the hotel. The hotel was exceptionally clean and the food was surprisingly good. If you tip the bar staff especially in the lobby bar, you will never have an empty glass. Reception staff are very helpful. We had fairly low expectations of what the evening entertainment would be but were pleasantly surprised. The animation team work extremely hard all day to get everyone involved in various sporting events. We went to the Jungle Disco a few nights and saw some rally impressive acts like belly dancing.

Got back 1st March 2006 after 2 weeks. Weather was excellent sun went down 4.30pm got dark pretty quick but obviously the later you go the longer it lasts. I shall start from the beginning as i had never been to Egypt so didn't know what to expect. It costs £15 per person to enter you fill in the Visa on Plane then queue up to pay they will take any currency. The airport is an eye opener especially if you are a regular holiday traveller and used to the finer things. The trip is 10 mins away safe deposit boxes are free booking in was quick receptionists speak fluent english as do most of the staff. The cleanliness of this hotel is exceptional. They have a row of shops in the hotel which can be a hassle they pester you as you walk past for you to sign there visitors book but thats just to get you in. Two pools one at the top which was freezing to swim in can get noisy as thats where they do the activities, the beach lagoon is lovely plenty of beds you are given a towel card which you hand over and get clean towels. No diet drinks if you trying to be healthy and the cocktails change every time you have one but just leave it and try another. Food was average this is the only minus about this hotel same thing really every night even though three eating areas they all did the same thing. Do watch out though they try and give you fresh orange juice and this is not included in the price. I do recommend the Laundry service £10 for a full bag holds loads if you fold it neatly and had nothing to do when I came home which was brill. Trips !!! you get these men walking round the pool areas all morning drives you potty selling trips we went out on the snorkel trip cost £20 each three drop offs to go snorkelling was good then spent 2 hours on an Island sunbathing. Also the quad bikes is excellent fun we booked that with the hotel lad aswell cheaper than Thomas Cook. Did do the 2 day tour to Luxor with Thomas cook cost £130 each which we had saved for very tiring but worth it to see the tombs I didn't realise the only pyramids are in Cairo but too far to travel too. Outside the hotel then fun began I went with my daughter I could have sold her a million times over they harass you as soon as you walk out the doors, the honking of the taxis to pick you up drives you mad but walking distance anyway, thats if you can manage the holes and debris thats everywhere just be aware this is a 3rd world country I still had a fab holiday but would only visit again for a week just to sunbathe didn't like the fact that it was too much of a hassle to leave the hotel.
we arrived jan 20th for 4 weeks until feb 17th. thomas cook
Sunrise Holidays is a former Holiday Inn hotel and as such has and is undergoing some refurbishment works although our experience was that this did not interfere with our holiday at all.
We were in our honeymoon here and we love it. I liked the pool, the beach, the restaurants, the discotheque, the animators.The rooms are big enough with balcony or terrace, tha bathroom very clean. The food was great,we have All Inclusive and you couldn`t eat all you liked. The romantic atmosfere is very present here. If we`ll have the opportunity to return here we`ll take it.
