Egypt, Hurghada: Iberotel Aquamarine Resort

* Click to book this hotel online

Reviewed by: JoanneH from CA, review #3013

When: October 2010

Located on the Red Sea in the town of Hurghada. Typical of 4 star resort... this is Egypt's Miami. {5 stars}

An all-inclusive resort; there are numerous similar resorts in area. The Aquamarine has over 1000 rooms and is expanding, however, it never seem crowded except at meals.

Be aware there are no elevators so if you're on the 3rd floor is upstairs all the way.

The town is within walking distance for those who like the nightlife as well as several bars and discos. etc. at the resort. Numerous pools and of course the beach along the Red Sea offer lots of pool time. Shopping both in the resort and just outside. Things to do include camel rides and glass bottom boat tours of Red Sea.

Heavily guarded as were most of the hotels in Egypt. Good Security. Air Conditioned, non-smoking rooms on request, mini bar other words everything you would expect. Food is included, several buffets (Egyptian, Oriental, Sea Food, Mediterranean, Italian and Grill) both inside and out as well as areas around various pools and along the beach. You're never far from food or drink.

Resort is loaded with Russians, Japanese, Indians and others from middle east. Offers internet but WiFi is poor and basically only works in one area of resort. I got better connection from Resort down the road than from Aquamarine's service which you pay for - and it's not cheap.

Interesting that they had an on-call doctor there 24/7 and special children area and pool; there were lots of families there. Standard room which I had was equivalent of US$98 per night inclusive.

I would stay here again. Super clean, offered bottle water daily, and had pleasant staff.
