honest review of hauza beach resort

To be honest this hotel was not terrible but it wasn't good either due to the fact that the management and food was awful. The rooms weren't cleaned properly and the towels stank. You had to wait about 10 minutes for more food to come and up to 20 minutes for a drink which you could get in about 5 or less minutes in a restaurant. The view from the hotel was beautiful and the actual look of the hotel was nice. For breakfast you would only be able to fill your own glass with water or orange juice, which usually ran out quickly, and tea. For lunch and dinner you could only fill up your glass or plastic cup with water or order a drink. Sometimes the electricity cuts off for up to 6 hours and you end up with no light, shower or waiting for your food to get cooked on a pan with only fire to start it frying. Some of the staff is very rude and ban you to take water in a bottle even though it is a boiling weather. If you wanted to use the toilets they usually didn't contain toilet paper which was terrible. There were only a few snacks in between the meals which made you quite hungry during the day.

Do not vist. Unless you like tepid, repetitive over cooked food.Bathroom lights went off 2nd day and took 3 days to fix after going to reception 3 times and having to see the guest relation officer.Drinks at the bars were often running out of lager, coke etc . Cockroach found under my bed!! Waiters failing to turn up with your drinks after ordering.It goes on and on....Lovely hotel but the management is a shambles.Countless people told me, as first time in Egypt, to not let the hotel spoil your opinion of Egypt.Please book a 5 star as I was told by these people.Im not one to moan as I've been to third world countries but do yourself a huge favour and do not visit this hotel.

A very true honest review of Hauza Beach Resort!

22 April 2015

Ok well where to begin.. As we had not been on holiday for aaaggeesss, my family and I decided to book a holiday. Without checking any information on the hotel itself, we booked Hauza Beach in a rush...

Ok well where to begin.. As we had not been on holiday for aaaggeesss, my family and I decided to book a holiday. Without checking any information on the hotel itself, we booked Hauza Beach in a rush as we were more than satisfied with the price! After a while, I started to read reviews as our holiday date became nearer (6th - 20th April 2015). Upon reading the reviews on here and other websites, we were all a bit shocked and nervous about what we'd encounter upon arrival, however my family and I were all pleasantly surprised. Below I will list different aspects about the hotel and what I thought it was like, also giving it a score out of 10: Arrival: Although many people on here have said that they had to wait ages and there were many problems when checking in, I had no worries or bother at all. As soon as we entered the reception, we were handed wet wipes to refresh ourselves and were greeted with warm, friendly faces. After we gave our names to reception, we were asked to take a seat to wait for our rooms. While we waited, we were handed cocktails (which tasted of a handful sugar, however it was a nice gesture) and were shown to our rooms in about 10 minutes. Many people on here said that upon arrival, the people at reception were a bit unwelcome which is true. However, they were the only staff members throughout the entire resort that were like this; the others were very happy to help all the time. (8/10) Rooms: I shared a double room with the sea view (the view was beautiful), with my mum and sisters. The room was fairly sized with a tv, dressing table, a table and two chairs and a balcony. The decor was slightly less modern however it went well with the feel of the resort. The room was thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis and kept well, however it definitely needed a lick of paint to give it a breath of fresh air! The bathroom on the other hand was a bit of a shambles. The toilet and sink were clean however they had had black bits around the edges. The bath was very in need of a renewal and looked yellow; we found out that this was because the hot water is slightly yellow (but it's 100% safe to take a shower in) (6/10) Food: The food is DEFINITELY not as bad as everyone makes out it is!!! Everyday for breakfast there was a wide range of food to choose from. Tomatoes, beans, sausages, boiled egg and French toast were the main items on the menu. There were also fresh pancakes made which were lush, as well as fresh eggs made to order. Additionally, there were also a variety of olives, cheeses and sliced meat to choose from. There were also a wide variety of cakes and pastries to choose from, most of which tasted the same however they were still delicious. Freshly made bread and croissants were also available as well as cereal, and a selection of teas and coffee. The only down side to breakfast is that they had no fresh orange juice (only squash-like orange and black currant drink) and no fruit was available apart from the odd days they had grapefruit. Breakfast was the same for the entire two weeks I stayed there however, I always had something to eat. Lunch was my least favourite meal of the day. Throughout the week, there was rice, salad, potatoes and either chicken, beef, fish or liver on the menu. However, there was freshly made pasta which you could eat if there was nothing that you liked which was delicious! Oranges and melon were available at lunch and dinner, as well as a variety of desserts (again, they dress them up differently but they all taste the same). Dinner, on average was lovely. Every night, the resort had a theme night. Mondays were my least favourite which was 'seafood', however the rest of the days were lovely. Many people on here have said the food was always cold, this is untrue. My food was always hot and well cooked, as well as delicious on most occasions. On some nights, there was live cooking outside the restaurant and they also made these little sweet dessert dumplings and churro type things which were LOVELY! Again, freshly made bread was available as well as at lunch and breakfast. Even if you did not like one bit of the food for dinner, there was also delicious pizza that was available (at dinner times only) behind the bakery section. Also, there were freshly made pizzas available on the beach which were delightful. Overall, the food was a pleasant surprise and I do not know what people are moaning about to be fair (and I'm a fussy eater!). (7/10) Staff: All the staff apart from the lads at reception were lovely and always willing to help (which I have described above). They are all extremely hardworking and still have the time to give you 100% of their custom. Jackie from guest relations is a particular favourite and she was on hand to help whenever you needed her; a true star! The animation team are all lovely especially Nadia and P-Ko (my favourite member). Many people in their reviews said that a member of the animation team called Katie (who was from the UK), was lovely and always willing to help, however, our experience with her was not all that jolly. She used to irritate us a lot and she'd always want the attention of everyone there as well as a little being a little ignorant. But apart from her, the animation team were excellent and put on amazing shows every night. (9/10) Pools and Beach: There were two pools at Hauza Beach; the main pool and jungle pool. The main pool was just an ordinary swimming pool with sun loungers and sun umbrellas surrounding it. The jungle pool was my favourite and had multiple levels of swimming pools as well as a jacuzzi and three water slides (however be careful when getting in and out of the pools at the jungle pool as the stones and stairs are very sharp and I grazed myself quite a couple of times). Overall the pools were very clean and well kept and were enjoyable to use. The beach was amaazziinngggg!!! It was kept lovely and clean and it was a gorgeous beach. Water aerobics and yoga was available to do everyday on the beach as well as volleyball and other activities. Many exotic fishes could be seen in the water within just 20cm of entering the sea which were beautiful. Down by the pier, there a jetty that is a great spot or snorkelling and it is amazing why you see down there! It looked exactly what you would see in Ok well where to begin..

Many exotic fishes could be sen in the water within just 20cm of entering the sea which were beautiful. Down by the pier, there is a jetty that is a great spot for snorkelling and it is amazing what you see down there! It looked exactly what you would see in the deep oceans. (10/10) Top Tips! 1. WiFi! WiFi seems to be an issue at this hotel which was a big issue for me! 10 minutes were available to use for free every day in reception; after these 10 minutes were up, you had to pay! This was atrocious! I mean what hotel doesn't at least have a free WiFi covering lobby?! There is a British pub in the resort called Mad Dogs which has WiFi however you had to buy something to gain access to the password which was changed daily. We used to buy one bottle of water for 10 Egyptian Pounds which equalled to around £1 and the bartender was happy to put in the password for all of us. For the rest of the two weeks he put the password in for free and was not bothered about us buying something. However, the connection was very poor but it was better than nothing! 2. People. Right, there have been MANY people complaining about different races at the hotel which I had the same issues with, there were many Russians and overall Europeans that were VERY rude, selfish and ignorant. Most of the people were lovely but there were the odd few that needed a kick up the backers!! At breakfast lunch and dinner they tried to push their way into the queue all the time, don't let them! As well as this, they were very selfish. Fruit was hardly to be seen as these few Russian people always rushed and shoved you out the way to grab all the fruit and didn't even end up eating it which was a waste. Therefore, I suggest that if you want fruit, keep an eye out for a man with a bowl on his shoulder and run to the dessert table before they get their! 3. All Inclusive. Upon arriving at the Hauza, you receive an 'all-inclusive' wristband, EVERYONE had this wristband. The only inclusive thing about this hotel was the drinks and that's it! The drinks at the pool bar were free and at reception but that's all! Everything we asked to use at the hotel charged money, even using the pool table at reception! Do not be fooled, it is DEFINITELY not an all inclusive hotel. There were definitely disadvantages of this hotel however the goods definitely outweighs the bad! DO NOT expect an all inclusive, lush 5* hotel because I'm telling you now - you won't get it. However, it is definitely value for money, it's situated in an ideal location and I met some lovely people. I'd definitely go again and please please please do not be discouraged by all the other harsh reviews out there! I was definitely pleasantly surprised and I enjoyed every single bit of the two weeks I was there. For what you pay, it's definitely worth it; if you want an all singing all dancing all inclusive 5* hotel, do not book the Hauza because you won't get it. Despite this, I had a lovely time and can't wait to go back; Thank You Hauza Beach Resort! I hope this review was helpful as I am being 100% honest. Please feel free to comment any questions you may have and I will be more than happy to answer!

Disappointment

19 April 2015

I booked the Hauza hotel for the facilities and services it advertised that it did. On arrival I was greeted by rude reception staff who seemed preoccupied with anything other than checking visitors...

I booked the Hauza hotel for the facilities and services it advertised that it did. On arrival I was greeted by rude reception staff who seemed preoccupied with anything other than checking visitors in. The room was Ok but the housekeeping was less than satisfactory. Second day there left with no toilet paper and room had not been cleaned just bed made. I phoned several tines to inform them that I had no toilet paper and no hot water. By 7.30pm no one had come to rectify either of the issues raised. After a cold shower I walked to reception to inform them again of problems. At 11.30pm someone knocked on my door with toilet rolls and to fix the hot water! As they had woken me up I told them to fix the problem with the water in the morning. They did not fix the water problem and I was forced to have yet another cold shower; third one of the holiday! I rang for room service on the north evening as I did not want to eat in the restaurant or to sit and watch the entertainment. I was informed that I had to walk up to the main restaurant to get the bottle of wine I had requested. The food was less than satisfactory, hot food was always cold or not cooked along with a limited selection to cater for all needs. Breakfast was most popular meal although it did mean eating eggs everyday for the whole holiday. Getting your eggs often entailed queuing for at least 20 minutes everyday as this was the most popular choice for almost everyone. They advertised that they did currency exchange at reception - they don't, they send you to a cashpoint machine that is about 10/15 minute walk away. As a solo traveller with a heart condition I book hotels on the services they offer to reduce my need to walk excessively. Unfortunately, this hotel did not meet my needs. All in all a very disappointing experience due to rude staff, poor food, lack of alcoholic beverages at bars, no hot water, no cleaning of room, no currency exchange, no room service. Definitely not a 4* hotel.
