The hotels here are big. So big, they contain enough facilities to fill your entire holiday in Hurghada. With many boasting their own waterparks, private beaches, huge pools and an incredible array of dining spots, you won't be short of things to do.
Stylishly decorated and home to Hurghada's biggest waterpark – featuring just about every type of slide you can think of – you won't want to leave the Jungle Aqua Park Hotel. It also comes with private access to a nearby sandy beach, which can be reached by a complimentary shuttle bus service.
This 5* stunner is highly-rated for a reason. It comes at the ready with no fewer than 17 pools, plus twisty waterslides, pool bars, a private beach, watersports and a diving centre. The list goes on, as there are also four a la carte restaurants and two buffet-style eateries, plus a shisha cafe.
The Grand Resort lives up to its name – and by that we mean it offers a luxurious stay for All Inclusive holidays to Hurghada. So grand, it looks more like a palace than a hotel. The arabesque-style rooms are pinch-me gorgeous and the pools are free-form, blending the surf and turf together effortlessly. There's also a complimentary shuttle service into central Hurghada, so you're never far from the action.
Calling all couples – this adults-only hotel is a retreat at its finest. There's a private beach for lazing, a luxurious spa for pampering and five restaurants for indulging. Long days are to be had at the pool while even longer nights are spent at the hotel's bars. Choose from a drinking spot which stacks up along the seafront or a live music venue.
This sprawling hotel's vibes are part Egyptian, part Mediterranean. With crisp blue accents and white exteriors, it looks a little like the lost city of Atlantis. But its waterpark, pirate ship, private beach and diving club are anything but mythical.
An attachment to the Sunrise Garden Beach Hotel, right next door, means you get two hotels for the price of one. But The Mamlouk Palace stands out in its own right, featuring a gorgeous location on its own private beach. Not to mention a la carte restaurants serving up a range of cuisine from Italian to Asian, Egyptian and Mexican, plus a gym and watersports facilities.
Stints at this Makadi Bay hotel will give you unlimited access to its waterpark, which is even more exciting when you consider its massive splash park and network of winding slides. And the perks don't end there – the Jaz Makadi Aquaviva also features a diving centre, spa and swim-up rooms for an extra dash of luxury.
The Tropitel Sahl Hasheesh is an oasis of sorts, dusty in colour and sitting alongside the sea. Anchoring the hotel in the middle is a patch of shady gardens and a pool, while you'll find a flurry of sunloungers, a spa and a Italian restaurant dotted around the complex. Plus, it comes with access to the hotel's private beach.
When you reach this hotel, you'll wonder if you've landed on an island instead – the pool scene is that sprawling. Tucked along a white-sand beach in Sahl Hasheesh, the Baron Palace Resort is perfect for holidaymakers looking for a getaway that's heavy on luxury. Packed with five bars, a slew of dining options and a shopping arcade, you certainly won't be complaining.
Found just beside the beach and overlooking Makadi Bay, Fort Arabesque and its carpeting gardens is the place to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. But don't think it doesn't have its own assortment of modern amenities – in fact, it comes equipped with five pools, five dining spots, four bars and a bicycle hire service to help you explore the area.
