Not So Grand Hotel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 11, 2015

I stayed at this so called Grand hotel for three weeks and the only thing that was grand was the size of it.
On arrival I was put in a normal room that was neither garden or sea view and I was disappointed as I had been promised a sea view room on request from the management.
I mentioned this and they said they would change me as soon as a guest left and it took two days but I did eventually get a nice beach room.
The garden was big with some lovely unusual exotic flowers pink and orange, the beach was also quite big and you could walk along it so that was all the redeeming feature side of it, there was also a good singer at night.
Most if not all the guests were Russian or European and I did not meet any english guests at all so no one really spoke to me except there was one nice family on Egyptian night who smiled.
The breakfast was more or less the same every day, sausage or burgers, eggs, bread, cheese yoghurt and fruit, small selection of pastries, cereal, coffee, cordial. there were two different areas you could take it but the outside area was prone to birds coming in and pecking at the bread which was not covered which put me off.
The waiters in the reception area restaurant were very rude and even swore at me one day so I made a formal complaint and he was made to apologise. I was given a free dinner invite by management at the Egyptian night but some pink looking kofteh I ate there gave me food poisoning and I felt ill with stomach cramps and pharoh's revenge having to go to the chemist for some local medication which works better and faster than Immodium.
I had to ring reception three times and wasted precious holiday time waiting but gave up in the end so the service was not the best, if at all.
The bar staff were not friendly or helpful and refused to change my money. There was also a rat roaming around and a big rat trap behind the bar!
I was allowed a free late checkout from the tour op but the receptionist made out like he was doing me a favour.
I would not return to this hotel but might be tempted to return to the sister hotel, the grand resort across the road and use the beach here as you are allowed to do this.
