  • Great place to relax on the beach

    by

    We chose Marriott for several reasons: we love Marriott chain and it was surprisingly reasonable compared to the part of the world we live in.

    The staff and service in general, was a bit snobby and pretentious - something we noticed is quite common in Egypt (do not mean to offend anyone, but admit it - we have seen better) - especially some of the trainees they have on the floor. But other than that - our stay was very pleasand and relaxing.

    The breakfast was the best I have personally had in any Marriott hotel or any hotel so far. Hot breakfast buffet, great selection, nice ambience.

    The bed was superb - as usual, though, Marriott has great bedding.

    The place is very family friendly - there were many people with young children (including ourselves). There is a kid's club, babysitting, games both for kids and adults (shuffle board, darts, pool, etc)

    The resort has a nice (though kind of small) beach and a private island. All the rooms (except for those on the first floor, I suppose) overlook the sea. There are also some exercise activities: yoga, stretching, aerobics, water gym by the pool.

    The crowd is also pretty diverse, which is nice - mostly European (German, French, Swedish, etc), some Russians, a few Americans.

    Since we were travelling with a young baby, we could not take part in the nightly entertainment activities, but other guests semmed to enjoy those.

    There is also a free bus shuttle to and from the airport.

    looks perfect

    Stayed here with my sister July 2006. Felt very safe. Good mix of nationalities.

    Our room was spacious, with a good sized balcony and lovely view (see photos).

    The staff were really nice and friendly. The Bazar was a hoot ( tried out my bartaring skills before heading on to the shops in town).

    The pool looked fabulous BUT it's no use if you can't swim. It has a very small shallow end that slopes steeply the whole way and is full of people trying to play water polo as that is where the goals are.

    There is another pool at the health club/spa BUT although it has a better shallow end there is a sudden deep drop (from 3ft to 10ft) for dive training.

    However the beach area was lovely and gently sloping into the sea. Stay at the side nearest the pool as the sand is soft here, the sand is rough at the far side of the jetty.

    Stayed on a bed and breakfast basis. The Italian restaraunt on site was expensive but well worth it.

    However I thought the price of a can of coke was extorsionate 30LE / £3.

    Therefore we bought most of our drinks at the little shop across the road (turn left as you exit the hotel) Much cheaper. We ate out a lot too Bulls (just down the road from the shop) was excellent (cheap and no nasty after effects).

    Unique Quality: The health club/spa was well worth the 15LE / £1:50 for a day membership. It is a mixed sex facility. It has a well equipped gym, jacuzi, sauna, steam room and an outdoor pool (shared by the dive school). The aromatherapy massage is good value for money compared to prices in Scotland.

    Directions: Not far away from what the Kuoni rep called the walking district. Well worth a visit. Full of shops and eateries (including Mac Donalds).

    a little luxury

    by

    The service was excellent, and the Patio was great for a coffee after the delicious meal for dinner.
    The evening entertainment was not for an old man like me, but was always well attended by other guests..

    The service was friendly and efficient. When my wife found the heat of the sun too strong after 10am , she went up to rest in our room The cleaner was still working. She asked if he could come earlier, about 9.30. He said he would , but she had better make a request to the department in charge. From then on, the room was always ready when she needed it.

    I would recomment this hotel.

    Unique Quality: This is a pleasant hotel with a wonderful view over the blue waters of the Red Sea. the colours seem to change as the day passes. Although the island opposite the hotel is manmade, it forms a nice safe bay for swimming, and a pleasant place to walk and have a drink.
    There is a good swimming pool too.

    A room with a blue view

    by

    A most relaxing place to stay.
    After a breakfast buffet, a dip in the sea and then relaxing by the pool, what more could you want.... except a stock of good books.

    Great place to stay.

    Unique Quality: Absolutely wonderful view of blue, blue , blue sea.
    Maybe the island is artificial but very attractive none the less.
    Pool spacious and you don't have to join in the activities if you don't want to.

    The patio is a nice place to spend a while while having coffee- or shisha if that's your pick.

    Directions: before the old Sheraton Hotel

  • It's Okay to stay here if you just want a tan!

    Well, we just stayed at this hotel- it's rated 4 stars and yes, the service and the hotel lobby area is 4 stars. However, the superior rooms and the standard rooms really have to be renovated! Our toilet flush literally broke the 3rd day and a person had to come and reattach the flush to the toilet with a piece of wire! The shower pressure was really weak and would sometimes stop altogether. The beach was big and ok- however, cigarette butts were all over the place because the ashtrays that were lying all over the beach on the small tables were, I'm guessing, thrown right back onto the beach? No one was there to clean it!
    Overall, it was a 3 star experience. I'd only recommend going here if you wanted some sun and beach, you get a deal for an extremely cheap price. For instance, if you're flying from western Europe into Hurghada, you should be able to get a deal half-pension (2 meals a day- breakfast and dinner), room with double bed and shower and flight for 399 euros or less. Anything more , and you're going to feel kind of ripped off. Oh, the gym, was pathetic- it was the size of one's laundry room and you had to pay for every half hour something like $1,.80 U.S/ 30 minutes.

    Unique Quality: The service is really remarkable but really go there if you speak german- it is catered to german tourists- in fact 98% of all guests there are german.
    They have a really nice well-kept garden and an impressive animation team from Milan, Italy that really enjoy what they do-- gymnastics on the beach to musical bingo at night- energetic young crowd.

    Directions: Directly across from the Grand Resort

Fantastic!

by TripAdvisor Member Ooie

We had a wonderful week at the Marriott this Easter. The staff is with a doubt the most genuinely friendly group of people we have ever encountered at a hotel. By being friendly ourselves and leavng a bit of a tip we managed to make friends with almost everyone. It's amazing how far a smile will take you. On our last day we were even presented with gifts from the housekeeping and the diving school staff! The service at the hotel will blow you away. Everyone is so motivated to make your holiday special and they certainly succeeded! We wanted rest and relaxation and this hotel was perfect for that. No huge animation shows or loud music, there is a kid's club and a lounge with nightly shows but they do not permeate the entire resort. The food was super- especially the fish. Yum! And the buffet was varied and huge. Something for everyone. We ate once at the Tuscany Restuarant and the food was amazing- definately a must. Many thanks to our super housecleaning staff on the 3rd floor- Mohammed, Mohammed and Abdul- friendly and hard working and so service oriented. And to Ahmed, Hosny and Yassar at the Diving School who looked after me so well when I was sick. Plus the smiling faces at the restaurant - Safy, Ossama, Wasseef, mohammed, and Marwa. A great bunch of people. If we are in need of some R&R again then I would definately consider going back to the Marriott Beach Resort. It's the perfect hotel for what we wanted.

Sheer relaxation!

by TripAdvisor Member Shovelton

My husband and I have just returned from a well needed, 12 day sheer lazy, relaxing holiday at the Marriott in Hurghada, having chosen this hotel following such excellent previous reviews from this site. Third time in Egypt at this time of year because of guaranteed sunshine. Days were beautifully warm (about 28 deg), but you need sweatshirts for the evenings, which were cool.

We were not in the least disappointed with our choice of hotel this time. We managed to book the most fantastic value package directly from Marriott, which involved staying in one of the Presidential Suites, which was wonderful, to say the least. Queen size bed (v comfortable and lovely cotton sheets), TV, bathroom with corner bath/shower, dressing area, separate lounge and further TV (if needed!), and a further separate loo. All rooms at the hotel overlook the sea/harbour and our suite had a great size balcony with v comfortable furniture.

Staff, without exception were courteous, friendly and very helpful. We have to single our most favorite member of staff being Hassan who runs up and down the beach, delivering cocktails, drinks and meals to all of us lazy individuals! He was a super guy, and his friendly and non intrusive attitude deserves a mention. Without doubt he earnt a generous tip at the end of our stay.

The buffet breakfast was fine (juice rather watery at times tho'), the buffet during the evenings was also OK with a different theme each night. Tuscany restaurant was superb. Off site, Hard Rock in the new part of Hurghada was good fun, and good food. Old part of Hurghada leaves a little to be desired in terms of good restaurants and overall ambiance, however we did have a good meal at Cafe Del Mar, which is run by Norwegians, we think.

We went to Ministry of Sound on the Beach one night which was superb (DJ from the UK) although it didn't really get going until about 1am. We left at 3am and still people were arriving, taxi ride back driven (v competently) by a 14 year old!

The only slight niggle at the hotel was the repetitive guitar or pan piped music which started at 6.30 am and lasted until about 11 pm. It came from the buffet restaurant and drifted nicely through to our room via the balcony doors which, because of the time of year were open most of the time. Do not let this put you off this hotel tho', I'm scratching around trying to find fault with it, and this is all I can come up with!

Although reluctant to return to the same hotel/area twice, we would definitely consider returning, either for relaxing or diving, and would recommend the hotel to anyone, including both families or couples...and if you manage to get a suite, do so, it's worth it!
