    Strange. I made the reservation at that same hotel in Hurghada through Hotel.com too. They said the check-in desk will be closed, no one would let you into your room. I lost $100+ for that booking.

    We were there in march 2019 and had no issues checking in, I had sent them an email letting them arrange picup from airport so maybe that was the difference..

    That could be it. I'll do it that way next time.

    I flew with Turkish Air too, Houston-Istanbul-Hurghada. The Turkish Air lounge in Istanbul is one of the best airport lounges that I have ever been in. I can stay there all day during transit.

    I have seen HH & silkies in other places like Banda Sea, Galapagos, Socorro & Cocos. I went to Red Sea to see the Oceanic Whitetip (Carcharhinus Longimanus), It is the only place in the world where you can find them wth pilotfish swimming along on their noses. A very cool sight to see.

    They are prolific, especially when they swim up to you in clear blue water.
    The red sea ; Egypt and Sudan is a wonderful experience, healthy hard beautiful corals everywhere , healthy soft corals and variety of fish , crustations and mamals make for a great trip.
