Firstly, you do not need to pre book transfers. Both hotels are a mere 10-15 minute ride away. Because we were a little bit green on arrival we paid 5 English pounds per person (good deal, we thought at the time) but for the return journey we had a fully air conditioned mini bus for 5.English in total and that was for all all 6 of us.
Both hotels are in a fab location (ok the area is still being developed) but this is not a problem. The Triton Empire Beach Hotel is right on the beach and everything is accessible within a hop, skip and jump. The beach is shingle however the sea is really warm and the snorkeling is amazing.
The Triton Empire Inn is more up market than the Beach resort and is rated 4 star with a fully air conditioned restaurant. We found it pleasant to eat there in the evening and have a quiet drink by the pool before heading back to the Triton Beach for the entertainment. We preferred to spend our days by the beach.
Both hotels also offer a dine-around programme where you can use two other restaurants Chez Pascal and Le Dolce Vita. All inclusive guests at the Triton Beach or Inn get a 45 Egyptian Pound discount per person. We had a fab 2-course meal with a bottle of wine for less than 10 pounds each.
I would definitely recommend the beach hotel to to anyone and I really believe we had the best of both worlds with the choice of the two hotels and the beach location. prices in the shops and bars are double in the Sindbad resort to where we stayed.
The staff were not as friendly as other Egyptian resorts such as Sharm or Taba however give them a couple of pounds and they look after you all week.
The rooms were spotless!
The food was eatable. Ok, not the best in the world but well worth the money you pay for all inclusive. Don't expect to pay a couple of hundred pounds and get 5 star treatment. You get what you pay for and there is always something you can eat.
I would go back to Hurghada again and definitely back to this hotel.
So, here is my feedback, I hope you find it useful.
