“A perfect holiday”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

The Palm Royale provided us with everthing we wanted for a perfect holiday.In short sun and relaxation on a perfect "carribean style" beach or lounging beside a quiet sheltered pool.Fine dining-a choice of 4 a la carte restaurants plus buffet 4 bars very good wine and beer adequate local spirits.Very comfortable large clean rooms bathrooms.Well equipped gym sauna steam room jacuzzi and spa with reasonable priced treatments and a long beach to run along and last but not least a very high standard of personalservice without being OTT from all members of staff who worked so hard to make our stay so comfortable. A few tips ROOMS-even nos sunniest -lower nos nearest beach so 1404 block 1 high floor sunny position near beach Beachfront rooms 3204 06 08 etc.AI Thomas Cook customers have best entitlement eg local spirits as well as wine & beer earlier start in bars 11am instead of noon.DRINKS-Wine drink OMAR KHYAAM red white rose avoid others!! Beers allgood stella luxor sakhara and my favourite Heinneken -draught heinneken in Nemos beachbar. local spirits are standard.EATING 4 a la cartes good food limited choice on AI buffet good standard fare Azur bar good snacks lunchtime Greek may be open for a la crte at lunch depending hotel occupancy.BEACH Excellent well spaced sunshades plenty bed great swimming off sandy shore.POOLS Large pool not heated nobody used!! Smaller heated pool sunny sheltered spot when windyACTIVITIES low key tennis volleyball stretching .ENTERTAINMENT Did not attend but I would say again ver low key.Summing up Perfect for what we wanted as outlined earlier perhaps not for you if you want lots of activities and a lively nightlife!!

Room Tip: beachfront third floor block 3 even &low numbered room suggest 3204 06 08 etc

I was looking for the best hotel in Hurgada, just to spend my leisure time in luxurious and relaxing way, and not worrying about anything. And the Palm Royale was the best choice! On my arrival in Hurgada I was met with honor by hotel staff, I understood that it would be great vacation. I was luck to stay at Presidential Suite - it was great and provided me lots of complementary things such as airport transfer, access to VIP Lounge and so on. The service team of the hotel was respectful and welcome. Would like to mention Mr. Walid Ahmed who is perfect in his work.

If you want a relaxing holiday in a splendid hotel then this takes some beating. The hotel is opulent with private beach and friendly attentive staff and deserves its 5 star rating.

Having been to Egypt many times, first in 1979, this was a first time visit. But what a great surprise!! Friendly staff, great room, even greater view from the balcony. Choice of meals, peaceful place, gorgeous beach with number of sunbeds and towels, no fight to catch last one as in other venues. I may fully recommend to couples. Enjoy the sea, the pools, the whirlpool and outstanding massage. And your loved one as I did for a week. Hope to return!

We stayed here for just one night because we needed a stopover coming from Aswan to take our plane in Hurghada the next day. Apart from the beach there is precious little to do in the area, but if I decided to take a few days to relax I wouldn't hesitate to come back to this hotel. Some may find the décor of the foyer somewhat kitsch but the rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Staff go out of their way to be helpful. We particularly appreciated the use of cloth napkins and bone china at breakfast thus avoiding the canteen effect found in so many hotels these days. The only niggle is the high charge for internet access. On the other hand the free transfer to the airport was very much appreciated.

Room Tip: To avoid hearing muzak try to be as far from the foyer as possible
