Was surprised how good it was
The best part of the hotel are lovely, friendly people who care about their guests! I felt like home there only few days after the arrival. People are kind, and willing to help on every step. Hotel itself is very functional, has everything you need for a vacation. And if you're kind of a person who prefers staying in the hotel, you'll miss nothing. Rooms are big enough, and cleaning service is very good. If you encounter any problem, the help will be on your way almost immediately. Food was great. I didn't expect much, because my vacation was during Corona pandemic, and there weren't many guests, but... The variety of food was quite wide, and Egyptian food amazed me once again. And last but not the least - special shout-out to THE BEST ANIMATION TEAM IN HURGHADA (I've visited a looot of different hotels there, and yes, they ARE the best). So cheerful, friendly, always smiling, have endless activities prepared for their guests, etc. Simply, I felt constant happiness during my stay there, and that's all I have to say :)
The Continental Hotel is not part of a chain, but there service is second to none. We came here as a last minute idea after our trip to the Canary Islands was cancelled due to the change in regulations by the Spanish Government due to Covid. THIS HOTEL PRACTISES COVID SAFE POLICIES I booked an initial 2 week holiday, and we are so glad we did. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted at Reception by a young, courteous man named Mohammed, our check in was very swift and efficient as Mohammed had prepared the paperwork in advance. And had very kindly arranged an upgrade for us, a marvellous surprise. Later on into this holiday I had to call upon the services of Mohammed once again as we had a family issue back in the U.K. with a bereavement and required strong internet connection within our suite, and this was something that was intermittent, Mohammed sprang into action late in the evening by calling the hotels IT engineer at home and after a conversation he returned to our room and resolved the issue which allowed video calling, something I wouldn’t have experienced in a global chain of hotels. Fantastic personal service. Our housekeeper who attended to our suite Mohammed was a true star, keeping everything and I mean everything spotlessly clean. The general areas of the hotels and the toilet facilities are absolutely spotless and a credit to the individuals who prepare and maintain them each and every day, I personally have never seen toilets/sinks etc being cleaned some many times a day, once again credit to those individuals involved in that process. Like all beach holidays there is a beach bar, Mahmoud and Ramy are two true stars, happy, engaging, conversationalists who look after you continually. Outstanding service from these two gentlemen they are a credit to the hotel. A beautiful beach, great pool and entertainment staff also await your arrival. Mr George and his team look after you very well in the restaurant’s and the Chefs always prepare varied and tasty food. We were that impressed we booked an extension and stayed an additional 5 days, which was easy to arrange thanks once again to the Reception Team. Paul
Great 6 days stay
Spent a week here at the end of Nov, and it was just amazing. The hotel has its own beach and very nice pool. Is this a new hotel in perfect condition? No it is not. But everything else including the staff make it look like one. Great services, very nice people. It is a very hard period for everybody in the hotel business, and I wish them all good luck. I think this hotel has around 600 rooms, I also noticed that the whole time we were there a maximum of 30 people were actually staying there. We were practically alone everywhere, hotel lobby, restaurant, pool, beach, tennis courts and so on. Being used to all inclusive we were not very happy at the beginning the kitchen personnel filling just a quarter of our plates and to have to return for more just a couple of minutes later. We got used to that and if it helps wasting food than so be it. The pool was not heated as advertised but in all honesty I understand that, even though we would have loved it a little warmer. My and my family recommend this place and we will be back. Thank you Mohammed for trying so hard to keep everything co clean in our room, big thanks to Mario in the restaurant. Keep it up guy, hopefully good times will came back soon ( for sure we will :))
