"Just returned from the Grand Resort Hotel, Hurghada. The hotel was very nice, plenty of choice when it came to the food and restaurants. Rooms were good, had one on the quiet side of the hotel. The beach just across the road was also really very good. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and the excursion on the Seascope Submarine took us to see the underwater wonders of the Red Sea, this was amazing."
