Great Rooms (if upgraded!)
Lack of quality entertainment
First of all before you go make sure you sign up for the HYATT GOLD PASSPORT on the Hyatt Regency Hotel Website.
Just returned from a week at the Hyatt. Had a truly fantastic time. Worries about moody staff, unclean rooms, cockroaches and ants proved totally unfounded. I wonder why people make this stuff up?! - I'm very well travelled and this is my 5th time in Egypt staying in the best hotels and this one is up there with the best of them. However not quite as good as the Hyatt in Sharm El Sheikh but is certainly comparable! - We went for a room upgrade as we didn't have the best of views with the first room they gave us. We paid $180US for an upgrade to a lagoon room and we had the best room in the hotel except for the Presidential Villa! Should anyone want to do the same as us make sure you get room G220! On one side you had a view of the lagoon and straight in front you had views right out over the sea. In fact the room made our holiday! And we thought it was cheap at the price we paid.
Sure, the food could have done with a little more variety, but what there was was cooked well and even if you didn't like the main restaurant there was others to choose from.
The staff were excellent, all were friendly in fact some of them overly so! - Didn't bother with most of the reception staff but should you find yourself needing one of them, make sure you choose Mohammed.
I do however have two gripes! Prices of drinks and food were expensive, We found ourselves going into the casino and playing blackjack just to get cheap drinks! The second was the entertainment, was pretty dire and boring! However, overall, if your looking for a peaceful week, with fantastic weather, good food and your in already in good company there is nowhere better.
