Fodor's Expert Review Steigenberger Al Dau Beach Hotel

Yossif Afifi Rd., Old Vic Village, Hurghada, Red Sea, 84511, Egypt

Close enough to town that you can enjoy the delights of Hurghada, yet offering a luxury retreat for relaxation, this resort offers the best of both worlds. The relaxed luxury is evident as soon as you enter the cathedral-like atrium of the reception area from where you can access restaurants and the Thalasso Spa. Rooms are a voluminous 50 square meters, with dark-wood furnishings set against white walls, plus deep balconies. Water is a major feature of the grounds—not just the oceanfront but also the massive free-form pools with waterfalls and a lazy river ride and the lagoon that forms the major feature of the golf course.

PROS

  • amenities are excellent, with a large 10-room Thalasso Spa, dive center, and golf course
  • close to the bars and nightlife of the town
  • no-smoking rooms

CONS

  • rooms are in one vast building rather than being scattered around the resort
  • atrium design could lead to possible noise if reception area is busy
