Hotel situated in very good area. 10 minute walk from large shopping centre with a large supermarket. Taxis are cheap if you wish to wander from resort. Very nice beaches if you do not want to stay at the resort beach. Excellent restaurants at the new marina.

Stayed All Inclusive so didn't go out much, except to visit the Retro Pub just down the road. This is a sports bar where the owner speaks good English, serves good food and drink, and has several TV screens for sports fans. The marina is also worth a visit but is a little further away so worth taking a taxi. Taxis are very cheap but you need to haggle.

Out and about

Hurghada is not the small fishing village it once was, the city has grown rapidly developing into four distinctive areas; the old town (El Dahar) is in the northern part, around 3km south of this is Sakkala, where along the Sheraton Road are many hotels, shops and restaurants, further south is an area called El Kawser, which has a 1km long promenade lined with hotels, bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. Lastly to the north of Hurghada is the coastal road known as the Golden Mile, named after its glorious sandy beaches there are a number of large resort hotels here.

Getting around Hurghada is still easy and cheap, with taxis plentiful and offering good value for money, ensure to agree on a total price before setting off.

The evening is a popular time for shopping in Hurghada, where the bazaars offer a wide range of souvenirs and local items such as decorative papyrus, fine cotton towels and linen, spices, gold and copperware. Don't forget to haggle.

There are numerous local and international, up-scale and fast-food eateries throughout the resort areas. The promenade is a great place for an evening stroll, a spot of shopping, dining out or enjoying a late night drink.

Things to do

Some of Hurghada's most beautiful sights are to be found under the sea, a variety of rare and colourful fish, coral reefs and aquatic gardens, make diving one of the most popular things to do here. These may also be observed through glass bottom boats, if diving isn't for you.

Other popular activities include a Jeep safari into the Sahara Desert; visiting a Bedouin village or the ancient monasteries of St Paul and St Anthony. Day trips or longer stays to view the amazing sights of Luxor and Cairo are also possible.
