Finally renovating, so the construction, We were for the 6. time in the hotel and look forward, that finally something happened. We must also remember the last years tourism suffered greatly and if no money enter, you can't spend. The hotel is located beautiful on the lagoon and the water directly left above the sea purely, flows to the bungalows and right back into the sea. ( is the same water as the zeytuna beach, and swimming in the lagoon from the pri …  read hotel review

The bungalow would very nicely furnished ( especially the bathroom - even with a bath) however the edge the bathtub completely moldy. The mirror on the washbasin was with black Streaks covered and the toilet was completely dirty and full of mold.

The hotel has different types of rooms. You can either book a regular room or a bungalow. The rooms are very neat and clean and they are cleaned every day. The staff are all very friendly and nice people. We had an all inclusive arrangement and the food was absolutely delicious and none of us got hit by 'the curse of the farao'. read hotel review

    We had a nice room near the pool which was small but with airconditioning, TV and a luxury bathroom. Also the kingsize bed was great!!

    There is 24/7 internet in the lobby which is free for everyone. The hotel has a private beach and uses a shuttleboat to get you there wich is also free. There is a nice pool in which every day there was aquarobics and waterpolo. Also everyday there was beachvolleybal. The entertaiment also arranges to go outside of the hotel to the Marina or the Club House (both once a week). The man at the pool arranges for you to put the sunbed wherever you want to sit.

  • Location
    6.0

    The hotel is located at the lagune so the view is amazing. Down Town is very close to the hotel, this is a nice place to shop or smoke some sisha. It's also very easy to get to the Marina (which is also arranged from the hotel once in a week). This is a very nice place to have a drink and enjoy the view of the boats. There are lots of possibilities for excursions. We ourselves did the Discovery Safari, the trip to Luxor and a boat trip for snorkling and watch Dolphins. All these excursions were amazing.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    There are two restaurants and three bars (one located on the beach). The main restaurant did barbecue sometimes or a fishday but there was always enough to find for anyone. The dining areas are very clean and the quality of the food was excellent. One of the restaurants is located near the lagune, so at lunch time this was an amazing place to sit!

    The staff is very friendly and helpful. This goes for everyone from the reception to down in the restaurant and the cleaningstaff. They all speak English (most of them very well too). They also speak some Dutch, German, Russian. The rooms are cleaned every day, so we always had a clean room. Once we went for some help to the reception and they took care of it within half an hour!!

    Within 5 minutes walk from the hotel we were in downtown. There are different shops and restaurants. From the hotel you need to take a boat to Zeytuna beach, this takes about 7 minutes. The boat leaves every hour.

    3 times a week there were activities around the pool. Internet access was limited to the lobby area, but when there were a lot of people, the acces was not ok. The pool: beds were good, towels with towelcard, the pool area was kept clean. The beach: no comment.

    We had a bungalow with lagune access, really nice. We were with 3 persons and we had enough space. The room was big enough. The bathroom had a bath/shower. The terrace had 2 sunbeds and still was big enough to put 2 chairs and a table on it.
