Hotel suggestion

Planning family holiday for New Year. Used to go to Sharm most years but decided to try Hurghada. Have grandchildren ages ranging from 4 years up to 17 years so need water slides. Also good food but still hopefully near other restaurants etc. Seen Seagull and also Hawaii riviera resorts. Also the Nubian resort. Anyone been to these or know what is better. Grateful for information thanks. Also good New Year celebrations thanks

Can’t comment on the others but stay away from seagull.. it’s a dreadful hotel

Have a look at a jungle resort it’s got everything to cater for all your family ages

I'd second jungle aqua park, it has the largest water park in hurgarda.

Another couple of hotels to check out would be steigenberger aqua magic

Albatross White beach

Jaz Aquaviva, which gives you Access to Makadi water world.

Sunrise Royal Makadi is a good one but it's not somewhere you can walk out of to a restaurant. Saying that though, neither are some of the others mentioned.

The Sunrise has a choice of 7 a la carte restaurants for dinner and they are lovely,

There is not a lot right with it tbh.. the brochure pics was taken years ago and now it’s run down

Most of the reviews are from 1st time posters mentioning the animation team!

It’s a hotel that gets lots of lower class Egyptians on holiday who quite frankly over run the place

Restaurant is like a car factory canteen!

Much better for the money

Jay, I really second Clint's suggestions and you may find some threads on the better hotels in Hurghada and if the ones he mentioned don't suit you, for example due to budget issues, there is the bella vista which is quite central too and recommended by a few of the experts and regulars here.

Have you looked at Jungle or the others suggested by Clint?

Taxis are so cheap you don’t need to be on the doorstep of everything
