"It's Okay to stay here if you just want a tan!" Hurghada Marriott Beach Resort Tip by janpat

Hurghada Marriott Beach Resort, Hurghada: 1,729 reviews and 11 photos

Well, we just stayed at this hotel- it's rated 4 stars and yes, the service and the hotel lobby area is 4 stars. However, the superior rooms and the standard rooms really have to be renovated! Our toilet flush literally broke the 3rd day and a person had to come and reattach the flush to the toilet with a piece of wire! The shower pressure was really weak and would sometimes stop altogether. The beach was big and ok- however, cigarette butts were all over the place because the ashtrays that were lying all over the beach on the small tables were, I'm guessing, thrown right back onto the beach? No one was there to clean it!
Overall, it was a 3 star experience. I'd only recommend going here if you wanted some sun and beach, you get a deal for an extremely cheap price. For instance, if you're flying from western Europe into Hurghada, you should be able to get a deal half-pension (2 meals a day- breakfast and dinner), room with double bed and shower and flight for 399 euros or less. Anything more , and you're going to feel kind of ripped off. Oh, the gym, was pathetic- it was the size of one's laundry room and you had to pay for every half hour something like $1,.80 U.S/ 30 minutes.

Unique Qualities: The service is really remarkable but really go there if you speak german- it is catered to german tourists- in fact 98% of all guests there are german.
They have a really nice well-kept garden and an impressive animation team from Milan, Italy that really enjoy what they do-- gymnastics on the beach to musical bingo at night- energetic young crowd.
