We stayed during Christmas break for three days. Lots of food for the buffet, but the soup were not very good , very watery, no meat or veggies. BBQ maybe the reason for our stomach upset, for us and some others, not done properly we think. The desserts, breads, and salads were very professional. Staff and the managers worked very hard. Cleaning staff always cleaned and make sure this hotel was in perfect condition 24/7! Only thing we noticed was head cook shouting to breakfast staff during early morning in front of guests, not very professional! (He did the BBQ!) Servers, Barmen did very good job and friendly to all the guests. Front desk did very good job also, gave lots of information.

Grand Horizon Resort offers the perfect paradise for relaxing in the sun. It is situated just minutes from the resort center …More
The Hotel is located near downtown and all the places to eat and buy what you need to buy are very close. But best of all is the service and the manager, I believe Hassan is his name. He will arrange everything you need, and go beyond that. All the trips to Cairo, Luxor, or daily boat excursions can be easily arranged through Hassan who redefines friendliness.
Anyway, once back in Egypt I am staying there again.
We were very surprised at the high standard and reasonable cost of accommodations at this hotel, which lies a little remote from the beaten path, but within walking distance of the very fashionable and popular Papa Beach Marina, which has almost one kilometer of luxury yachts on one side, and a long string of restaurants and pubs along the other.
And to get around town, one either catch a cab right in front of the hotel, or simply walk two blocks to the main boulevard which runs the length of Hurghada, with taxi's costing from LE 5 to LE 25 depending on the distance, in other words, between less than $1 to a maximum of $4.
It is rated as a 3 star facility on the internet, which I would re-class at 4 star due to the friendliness of the staff both at the reception and the restaurant.
We will certainly stay there again, and recommend it for anyone looking for a low-cost and comfortable stay in Hurghada.
