We were among the 29 February and 13,3 Oriental Bay Marsa Alam. As it was my now sixth stay in Marsa Alam, my altogether eleventh time in Egypt was, I knew already from the particularly beautiful coral reefs, on the bay of the oriental Bay hotels, Jabal Al Rosas. I have however in any of our stays such a spacious room such a reasonable price available had, as in this hotel. 2 well-kept bedroom each with a private entrance and bathroom, as well as a spaci …  read hotel review

The hotel is situated very remote, on the edge of the desert. The rooms (we had pool view additionally booked) were very big (about 50 square meter) and offered sea and wüstenblick. The hotel offers an all-inclusive. The germans are almost under and the age of the guests is totally through the gartenbeet. …  read hotel review

  • July 2014
We spent a beutiful holiday with my girlfriend at this hotel at July 2014. The staff was amazing they helped you with all your needs they were friendly and very nice to you. Especially at pool bar staf member Mohamed Awad was very kind and polite and helped us with everything. We felt really good at the hotel because of its cleanliness and quiet enviroment. Pools were not full nad clean every day. Restaurant and its variety of food was acceptable. And now the best part of this holiday in Oriental Bay was sea and underwater world. It was really ... amazing what u could see there. It is literally the paradise for snorkeling. Lots of various fishes and also turtles and so. And everything was in safe distance from beach so even little children could see this. We came home really relaxed and very happy from this vacation. I recommend this hotel for everyone who want some relax or to go snorkeling whether its family with children or couple on romantic vacation or even single one. read hotel review

Hotel has about 200 rooms so is not huge but give you a feeling of a great hotel. All rooms are air con so the summer heat is no problem when sleeping of a night. All rooms are clean and tidy and are cleaned daily by friendly and personal staff. All inclusive is the option we had and was great. Mostly either German, Italian, English and Czech and suits all ranges of age. read hotel review

    All the staff at this hotel are superb they cannot do enough for you to make your stay a great one. Tarek and the catering staff will make eating a fine experience for you. Languages not a problem as they cater for all although as with most places if you speak English it always helps. Room cleaning daily along with a great laundry service if you need it. If by chance you find something not to your liking then the hotel manager Yasser is on hand what seems like 24hrs a day to help you.

    They have a kids club although my child was 12 so didn't attend this. The hotel has 4 pools (one heated for the winter traveler) ample sun loungers for all. Beach has its own bar and place for snacks and toilets and showers that are all in good order and plenty of sunbeds and parasol's to find the shade when you need it. Plenty of activities taking place on the beach and the pools to keep you occupied. internet cafe, disco and plenty of shops to find that elusive gift

    Rooms here are more like suits that a standard hotel room all have air con, TV, DVD players, safes that are electronic locking, tea and coffee facilities in all rooms fridge and telephone. Dependent on the room you book and i have stayed in many here balcony or terrace is what you can expect. Throughout the hotel is clean and tidy all rooms are located in blocks.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    They have 3 restaurants although the main used one is the buffet which caters for all tastes. 4 bars provide you with plenty of drink including the one at the beach. Food quality is great and i could not find fault even with a fussy child who always found something she would eat. Clean and swift service plates cleared virtually on completion of eating courses.

    Beach is located as with many hotels in Egypt across the road from the hotel that is reached in a 2 min walk. The hotel has people on the road 247 for you to cross safely although the road is not that busy. Shops on site provide you with all the required items you might want to purchase. My advise visit the textile store where Aladino will welcome you like family and find you something Egyptian and at a good price. Plenty of different excursions to go on and the dive center is just across the road for the hardened divers to get their fill.

We had holidays at this hotel in the beginning of May for 10 days with my friend. The hotel is very original and beautiful. The territory is huge. We had a rather big room very light, comfortable and clean. The food in the restaurant was very tasty and various. The staff in the hotel is very friedly and sympathizing. All days long we spent on the beach enjoing the sea view, snorkling and sunbathing. I can advise this place for people who want to have relax and quiet holidays, seclusion with the nature. Our next holidays for sure we are ... going to this hotel again. read hotel review

Hotel was perfect, pools and gardens were beautiful. Housekeeping worked brilliant. Just about food and beverage quite poor, the worst were breakfast and no any straight beer, all beers were from bottles, it was a quite pity, cause Czech people love straight beer... Animation team worked every day very good and every night disco, also evenings shows were good. We spent relax vacation it this hotel. read hotel review
