Beginning of May trip to Hurghada
The water temperature was 23 - 24 degrees - too cold for longer dives, especially that there were lots of really cold currents under water.
I stayed at Sea Garden hotel - near the new Marina. I chose the same hotel 3 and 1/2 years ago and very little had changed, although the rooms are a bit older now. Otherwise it's the same friendly and smiling personnel, the same view from the balcony and the same cozy little pool.
The food hasn't changed either - which is not a good thing - so I would not recommend eating in the hotel. Unfortunately the Egyptians are trying to cook European food to please the tourists and the attempts are not very successful (in my opinion). The only times when I really enjoyed the hotel food was during the "Egyptian" days - when the hotels serve real Egyptian food.
I'd far rather recommend buying food in any of the very many restaurants around.
Recommend Hurghada to others
