    hi - we stayed at the titanic - and had an absolute great time! our children enjoyed it because of the water park - overall it is a very good hotel with excellent service.

    Hi johnwayne
    Thanks for this
    How far away from central Hurghada is it?
    Are the rooms a good size and do they have internet access?
    Thanks

    Hi we also stayed at the Titanic. The waterpark is great fun and the main pool is large with plenty of sunbeds. The main pool serves burgers, hotdogs etc in the day and you can help yourself to soft drinks including water. The main reception and bar area got very noisy in the evenings and very busy. Again here you can help yourself to soft drinks and tea and coffee. The food was quite good with plenty of choice. Its not too far from the prom area where Hard Rock is and beach is over the road but too far for us to walk - the hotel supplies a free bus. From memory Im sure we could get free lunch and drinks down on the beach as well. There is not an awful lot within walking distance of the hotel and you will need to get taxis or flg down the minibus. The room we had was very large with a sitting area with sofabeds and seperate bedroom with huge bathroom, 2 TV's safe and fridge. There is a disco / nightclub behind the main pool area but you cannot get your all inclusive drinks in here and need to pay to get into the nightclub. Some guests were complaining about the noise but we knew this before and we requested a room facing the front of the building and the noise did not disturb us at all.
    All towels are supplied so no need to take one. If taking travellers cheques and you want to change them at the hotel they will photocopy your passport and this took them an age to do so I would suggest taking a copy before you go and take it with you.

    If you look on this link to a map of Hurghada you will get an idea of where it is - it isnt on the map but is opposite Aladdin and Ali Baba hotels Hurghada Street Map

    There are also some vids on youtube YouTube - Titanic Resort - Hurghada 27/Oct/2007


    Have a great time.

    Hi Q4S
    Thanks a lot for this information, the package with this hotel was too good to miss but wanted to try and find out if there was a reason it was 'cheap' . Quite happy it will meet my needs and loking forward to going now. I dont think I'll bother with the nightclub this trip as on my own and may look a bit 'sad' or 'desperate' ha ha. Its not really a holiday more business as I will be trying to cram in as much property searching as I can as my aim is to have decided on somewhere before I return.
    Thanks again for info and more importantly all the effort you put in and help you give to everyone on the Forum
    Will post thoughts/feelings of trip on here when I return

    Hi Wanderlust - your welcome and thanks for your kind words. You will have a great time and the hotel will be a great base for you. Must admit we went into the nightclub - only escorting the 2 teenage girls tho!! and they went to their 1st foam party at 13 and had a ball.

    Hi Q4S
    I am sure if my son was with me he would be spending more time in the nightclub than his room!!
    Have a difficult task when I am there as want to find something for me and my husband ( middle aged but still feel 20 sometimes!) and my son and his partner who are 20. As you can imagine even though its mine and his dads money when he found out I'd been able to get the week off and was going out next week he proceded to tell me what HIS requirements are for the apartment, priceless!

    Panorama Bungalows not the best. People on our flight a couple of weeks ago came home a week early. Enough said plus quite far out. We stayed at Safir Hotel. Next to the Mariiott. Fab hotel fairly central to new part and 50p to centre by taxi. Taxis pass continually. Stay 1 week hotel half board cost £80each. Rooms need updating but food and location fab

    Hope you have a wonderful time and a fruitful venture in finding your property. We haven't told our kids that we've reserved an apartment at the Oasis Marina yet, as we know only too well what they'll be like LOL Please try to take plenty of photo's (particularly the Oasis Marina site :cool:)while you're out there and post some on here if you can. It's great to see how developments are progressing from a 'real' person :D
