    Over 300 rooms, so you know what to get.
    Lots of people, less space and a hotel working as a factory.

    Thomas cook all Inclusive


    . Breakfast from 6,30 until 10 ,Lunch from 12 until 3, evening meal from 6 until 10 in the main restaurant but first night restaurant open until everyone had eaten as we didnt arrive until nearly 11,30pm. Snacks avaliable outside all day until 10pm. Drinks until midnight and coffee all night.. Italian restaurant and Fish restaurant in the complex, each guest is allowed a free meal in each, dont buy the optional wine, its 200le a bottle. Massage is extra, but if you can, do have at least one Cleopatra massage. The gym is free.
    Entertainment was very limited in the evenings, they did their best, but watching 10 german kareoke singers did get a little tiring, the childrens singing and dancing on the stage was again in german so not really suited if you didnt understand the language.
    Do expect the shopkeepers to hassle you into their shops, but be firm, they do eventually understand NO, and do haggle, offer 2thirds of the asking price, and be prepared to walk away.
    Pharoes revenge: stomach cramps and diarhea, 90% get it, dont take anything from UK, it wont work, any chemist out there will give you tablets, we payed 80le and cured it in 24hours.
    Taxis are very cheap, just ask the Bell boy to arrange it for you, ask the price beforehand,but do make sure you tell them where you are going otherwise you may end up in their cousins shop,
    Would recommend this hotel to couples, but very limited entertainment for teenagers within the complex.

    Unique Quality: Stunning Sea views, only beach is on the lagoon, of corse sand and the lagoon gets deep quickly. Childrens pool, large swimming pool, very windy at times in front of the hotel.shallow coral reef to left rear of hotel, do wear shoes when walking on the reef and slippy cobbles down to the water. In theory the loungers cant be booked before 8am, but many have towels on them by 6am.

Sunrise el Palacio

by barbie50uk

"All inclusive at the Sunrise el Palacio"

1800 guests, about 180 english so quite a varied culture mixture. Very good rep from Thomas cook. Food was varied, the main restaurant did get quite busy at times, but there were allways places avaliable, especially down the far end.Just get a glass of drink and put it on your table, this shows the table is occupied before wandering off to choose your meals.Snacks outside, especially the omellettes were very good, and a small tip to the waiter(we gave 50 Le) guarunteed drinks without queing delivered to the table. They remembered what we drank and as soon as we sat down it was on our table. The staff were allways smiling and so helpfull. If you do get peckish after 10pm thogh, do grab something and put it in your fridge because nothing is avalaible.

"Mamya Island"

Booked with the hotel rep, Lane, who is off to Brasil next year.Coach pick up to the port,about 8,30am. boat trip of about 25 mins, then transferred by smaller boat ashore. Glorious soft sandy beach, lots of palm shelters, everyone is given a space. Snorkels, masks and flippers freely avaliable.Just float in the crystal clear water over the coral, the colours and the fish will amaze you. Lunch about midday, extremely varied food avaliable, but drinks are payed for so make sure you have some money with you. Opportunity to go off to do deeper water swimming on the boats, but decided to just lounge on shore and top up tan.Left the island about 4, they just put you in any boat but as they all belong to the same company dont worry, they all go back to the port. Would reccomend this to anyone

"Sinbad submarine"

This wasnt a scheduled trip but something we had seen on the web, but was easily arranged by the rep. Again, coach trip to the port, this time a yellow boat, about 20mins to a floating island, then onto the sub, wow,seats both sides, but the sub is only half filled, with two seats to 1 porthole and they sat us all on one side,(couldnt work out why to start with) Went down about 50metres, and slowly cruised along the edge of the reef. Suddenly in the window a scuba diver appeared, not what you expect, made me jump thats for sure. He was feeding the fish so they came to the portholes,totally gobsmacked.The "old" shipwreck , the coral, the fish., once again, wish we had booked twice. Was a bit rushed getting back to the coach, in hindsite would have booked a taxi back to the hotel.

Re: weather in Hurghada?

Hi There,
I to am off to Hurghada in February (18th) It will be my first time in Egypt and I cant wait.
We are staying at the Sunrise El Palacio and have read nothing but good reviews of the hotel, staff and food.
I think the weather can vary but as an average between 70 and 80 is about right, with sunshine all day!
The only thing that may put some off about the Sunrise El Palacio is there is a strong German contingent there. To be honest this dosent bother us in the slightest.
If you are there the same dates maybe see you for a beer in the hotel bar!
Enjoy your holiday.
Regards, Graham.
