The food was cold I didnt eat much as had nothing I liked apart from cheese rolls not suitable for children.
Location far from town.

The main areas of the hotel were clean but if you looked a bit closer it could do with a good deep clean especaly in the resturant and the rooms were dated.
The staff were fine no problems at all.
Entertainment was again for the russian folks with english translated songs in places.
We would not stay here again but would stay in the centre of Hurgarda which we visited twice.Lots more happening on a night.

Hotel cleanliness - Spot on here, rooms cleaned daily, beds changed daily and towels. the rooms were a good size, we were 3 ladies and had ample space for hanging clothes. Our room overlooked the pool of the Ali Baba hotel next door. The balcony was a good size and the fridge was stocked with about 8 bottles of water daily. The reception and lobby area was beautiful, we chose to drink in here every night as it was comfortable with big sofas. The public toilets were immaculate, the cleaning boy was in and out of there all the time. The gardens were lovely and the grounds were kept very clean.
Hotel food - This is the best food I have had in Egypt. Buffet style meals and yes there was chicken every meal time, but this is normal in Egypt. But there was much much more than chicken, beef, duck, potatoes and veg. Also the chef cooked a pasta dish every night which was very nice. The salads too were lovely, with a good range of breads and the desserts were to die for!!
Hotel location - Fantastic! right on the beach. was well out of hurghada, which suited us fine, we had just been on a weeks nile cruise so all we wanted to do was to relax on the beach and Hurghada is such a big bustling city i prefer to be off the beaten track. There are two other hotels jasmine and ali baba one at each side of the aladdin. Both these hotels can be used by aladdin guests, just book at reception. We did not use them as we felt no need, however, we did have a walk through both and decided ours was better even though the ali baba is one star more. it is worth noting though that the jasmine has a little zoo, so might be nice for the children, the monkeys are dead funny. If you want to go into town there is a bus run by the hotel, cant comment though, didnt use it.
Hotel staff- Wonderful, friendly people, i did not see one staff member who was not friendly.They were so helpful too. My friend had a birthday while we were there and without asking they made her a big cake and sang to her at dinner. We trained our bar waiter with the drinks to put less vodka and more coke, the vodka is very strong and not measured. The boys on the beach were also very friendly, a small tip the first day got us prime sunbeds all week! Beach towels are not required, you are given a towel card on arrival and that gets you clean beach towels daily.
We all loved this hotel and the other people we spoke to felt the same, some had been there before. It is the most grand hotel i have stayed in in Egypt, very very impressed and cant wait to go back again!!!
