The only downside as with all hotels in egypt is the entertainment in the evening which consisted of a terrible singer in the bar area, there...

Driving to "the Fort" is a bit surreal. There is NOTHING around for miles but sand and more sand. The contrast between the surrounding area and the hotel is drastic. When you walk in you're handed a drink and you have a view of the pools and the Red Sea from the reception area. The pools were clean and cut...

We have only just returned from the 'Fort' and we loved it. We have been to Hurgarda 3 times now and this was by far the best holiday in Egypt we have had. Too many people moan about trival things.
