We were a group of friends to spend New Year Eve at Citadel Resort. The resort is big, well kept, amazing buildings, alleys and gardens, nice pools, beaches and lagoons but... -rooms have outdated furniture, doors that can’t be closed, rusted mini fridges ( we had two rooms in building 5), the only nice thing was the sea view - food is ok, not as expected from a 5* hotel, aut of the 5 a la carte restaurants presented on the hotel website only one was opened ( Marrocan) with a fix menu - drinks are very poor, both alchololic and alchohol free, only beer and rum are acceptable - reception staff is total unfriendly and not helpful at all - SPA and excursion sellers are very pushy and annoying and it s very difficult to stay away from them The one week spent there was fine due to sun and sea but we will not come back

Hotel's Favourite
I visited this hotel in September 2020...and I was left speechless. First, I must express my gratitude to Mr. Mohamed Abdel Wahab, general manager of the hotel. This wonderful person was a key ingredient in making my stay at Citadel exceptional - and the reason why I will come back again. Detailed breakdown is below: Architecture: Insane. I have never seen anything like this, and I am glad I did now. You should not observe at Citadel as hotel, but as a 1000-year old kingdom-fortress. Design, attention to details, quality of construction is out of this world. On every step, you can see that there was no compromise about cost. You just sit at Columbus café, observe and ask yourself how many architect and engineers lost their minds planning this marble. Staff: Perfect mix of professionally and friendliness. You can easily see that not everybody can get a job in Citadel. Food: Although all hotels work with reduced capacity and lower food options...This was not noticeable here. Plenty of choice, and you will not get bored even in the main restaurant (there are even crabs at open buffet!). And there are no problems with "all food tastes the same". It doesn`t, taste is fabulous. Rooms: Big, spacious, clean....again, you don`t see savings here. Don`t expect cheap wood-frame beds, check the photos. TV-s are 40-inch, so bring your HDMI cable and USB drives. Beach: This is a bit specific segment. Hotel has 1 kilometer of its coral reef, so open-sea access is a bit problematic. But, there are 3 lagunas: - Northern, natural laguna. Beautiful, sandy all-the-way, nice entry to deep segment, full of fish even at knee-depth. It is protected from open-sea waves by rock formation. Also, through this beach you can go to coral reefs. The only flaw is that it can get a bit crowded - Central, artificial laguna. I didn`t spend a lot of time here, but again, easy access to deep water and coral reefs - South, artificial laguna. Better than central, and also, easy access to deep water and open sea Anyhow....I give this hotel a solid 10. Due to the sheer size of the hotel, and everything it offers, you should consider more as a "Experience" than "Vacation"

The staff treats you as if you were not welcomed there. Drinks in paper cups even if you ask for a glass and a person before just had it in glasses they tell you that they don’t have glasses! Awful experience with the staff in bars. When you ask someone to make a a coffee he will give it to you as if you shouldn’t have even asked... Not very nice experience at all...

I was in this hotel for 9 days earlier this year. The landscape is very beautiful, the hotel looks pretty good, the staff is friendly. However, the hotel's rating of 5 stars is much overestimated. The furniture in the rooms is quite old, the internet access is faulty and the all inclusive menu is very poor. Lunch was the most deficient, the same every day, poor both in terms of variety and quality. The drink was even worse, especially the wine that was bottled by the hotel employees at random (eg on New Year's Eve they served white wine from bottles with another red wine label). Another major problem was transportation in Hurghada. I ordered a taxi from the city to leave the hotel but it was not allowed to enter by the hotel staff. We were explained that these are the rules determined by the Covid pandemic and if we want to get out we can do it with "authorized" hotel taxis or walk to the hotel gate which is over a kilometer away. Instead, when you came from the city with any other taxi, you could enter the hotel without any problems. The quality-price ratio was in my opinion totally disproportionate, and the facilities and conditions offered did not exceed the offer of a three star hotel.

+ We visited this hotel just week ago. Great premises, amazing architecture, marina, nice rooms, very professional staff, beautiful coral reef on the door step. All rooms facing to the sea, very good quality coffee, variety pastry and alcoholic drinks. Rooms have LED TV HD with many channels, good size beds, spacious rooms, great shower rooms, soft sunbeds on the beach. Lots of activities provided by others. Due Corona there are some restrictions which are i guess everywhere in Hurghada. - We had very controversial feelings here as hotel personnel so nice, which i cannot tell about some activities organisers. Quad bikes, diving, photo shoots, spa, beauty salons are on offer. However some of the reps are very insisting and hardly persuading that it gives me opposite feeling instead of to be attracted to activity. I feel that i don't want this anymore!!! Pushy!!!pushy!!and one more time very pushy!!! They walking around you 3 4 times a day asking same services. We came here for holidays and not for listening every time same thin.I don't want to mention which organisers but I guess hotel should have conversation to all of them and explain about respect to customers privacy!!!! Also food for 5 star is poor. Breakfast lacking healthy options, alternatives to milk products like soya milk, more variety fresh juice etc. No nuts options, deserts for me looked very unattractive using artificial ingredients. Lunch very repetitive everyday same Chicken bbq, pasta, pizza, kebab, burgers options. Not impressed. The dinner have same roasts, spaghetti option daily where you still going to find same salads everyday. Food could include some more salads especially greens or yogurt sauce, beetroot and all cut to fine peaces not in big cubes which would be much better food presentation. Also tried 2 types of la carte dinner which are included in package were safest option again for meet lovers only. Regards fish they have daily 1 type fried fish found few times undercooked or oversalted with tiny option of seafood. So hotel is bit controversial regards food and services on site provided with amazing views, staff, sea, snorkeling and diving. For 5 star hotel it required good improvements on restaurant s to be in competition with other hotels especially with Makadi Bay hotels were nobody bothers you, Animation team are on site, full variety of food and theme dinner every evening. Saying that views cannot be beaten by other hotels.
