All in all a very decent hotel. We were pleased and had beautiful vacation. The hotel was only about 25-30% busy, therefore was enough place and peace. The southern part of the area including the associated, widespreading pools was completely empty. To the meals the guests came from the neighboring brayka (older part of the resort), as their restaurant was reconditioned straight. Probably also due to the efficiency. The restaurant was always well-attended and sometimes quite noisy. Here and there there were room for improvement, as almost everywhere. There were some areas, the less maintained or cleaned, which may be ... also with the low occupancy to explain. The hotel (royal brayka) only about three years was, one can hardly believe. By our standards considered, would you rather of 20 to 30 years out. Probably it is because of the slow construction now: partly the building on years in halbfertigem condition, before operation. Liked: the spectacular house reef! the garden area the friendliness of the staff the very good and varied food the unobtrusive entertainment Not so good: • condition in some areas • music at the pool/at the pool bar. I personally need no noise! The bartender (the only staff, the me as less friendly in memory is) frönte unfortunately in irregular intervals its passion for techno. I am of the opinion, that he so that the guests from the pool area rather distributed than entertained. • atmosphere in the restaurant. The restaurant has no egyptian flair. As we have already significantly stimmungsvolleres seen. We were already the 9. time in Egypt, as you could get along with the one or the other weakness arrange. Overall i would recommend this hotel. read hotel review

Most reviews i can only agree, but disabled the hotel is not, many stages, some spaces only about detour to reach. Room are ok, unfortunately, they were lots of russians in the hotel the partly negative anything else (at night very loud, no consideration for others). The food was for me the best - wide choice and everything really delicious. Only drawback - no tea/coffee spoons-only plastic! Food beverage self-service. Everything very clean, staff efficient, friendly from the reception to the gardener. From snorkeling i was first disappointed-it is only if the wind really fantastic, but we had of 8 ... days a day without wind that was unfortunate but the day was' wicked ' for snorkelling. However one must already far out. Whether north reef or south reef, one nicer than the other. ( the north reef crossed a weissspitzenriffhai, in the south reef a turtle and a fats moraine. In the bay is to the riffkanten not more all too much of fish-for beginners ok! Also some rays. The entrance into the water is indeed without beach shoes possible-but there are heavier stones and rough gravel the shallow water so that better shoes to wear. You can walk into the sea for quite a distance, swimming and playing good. Beach-from royal brayka resort is good, but you can not directly into the water - ( only completely left!), but you can the beach ( like everything else also out the restaurant) from the brayka beach hotel, the towels were there however at the royal brayka beach! If the hotel once full should be written off, it was however with the chairs about-there were now already partially too few at the brayka beach! - windbreaks were much too few and at 7:00 o'clock in the morning already all reserved! Pools, wellness center not used but everything a good impression, animation nothing received-need not everyone!?! A tip noch-definitely a fly gossips forward, no matter what hotel-everywhere at the beaches you with small annoying fly to do! read hotel review

A really great week to relax and soak up the sun! Were a bit concerned about Egypt currently, but don't worry! Very recommendable, weather, beach, water, only 4-5 hours flight schedules, really nice fellow countrymen, delicious food, total relaxation... What more can i say. A week in the Year is actually a must! With the hotel we were very satisfied. We have before booking the reviews and read were a bit back and forth! But if you stay here something to moan about has, is stay at home. There are always people, the somewhat too can be found. read hotel review

Summer in the winter - great, we will be back

In march 2013 we escaped the winter and for the Royal Brayka Bay Resort decided. We wanted to baden and diving- the complex is perfect adequate. The large area adjoins the older sister hotel Brayka Bay reef resort - in all-inclusive the bars of the neighbor hotel with use. The green areas the entire area is very rich, colorful and very well maintained. The older Brayka Bay hotel is outside very beautifully designed, should in the rooms but already very worn be - we recommend the newer Royal Brayka Bay. In the newer section are further gbäudefügel finished (no construction ... ) - the furniture are already (packaged ) in the rooms, however this is south wing still not open. The diving center extra divers (on the grounds) is great - everything was good organized and thought-out - many great and well-known diving area shall be made by zodiac or minubus route, but also the nearby riff invites you to lots of great dives a. The hausrifftauchgängen i found especially great, that one by zodiac to the outside areas the bay drive and then 'one way' back in the bay dives. The rooms of the hotel were tidy and well equipped, everything is clean - alone the bathroom could be a little more spacious. Of photos with flaking paint you should not worry - the hotel is very well-kept and you are not allowed forget, that you are in the middle in the know and the salty air of the red sea certainly not the verträglichste for the new siding is. The food tasted always very good and during our stay (a week) also varied. Breakfast is on ' entbehrungsreichsten' but fresh 'german' rolls are in the desert hard to get. Fresh crepes and scrambled eggs solace but ignored it. In some areas, for example the lobby bar, there is still a little antmoshpäre -this could be with a little decoration and a few accessories be improved. It is also unclear, why it teaspoon only in plastic and is not, like the rest of too, from metal. Some beach bars drinks are served in paper glasses, whoever doesn't like this, as we, can also friendly for a real glass ask for and get it then also. These points but mention, if we really want to criticize tried. The entire area and the vacation were really very nice and we will definitely go back there again a vacation in this hotel spend. read hotel review

Positive new and very clean hotel, very pleasant and hard-working staff, room top, absolutely dreamlike reef with super access to the beach (without bathing shoe possible ), always vacant chairs at the beach(but from summer change, since the 2. one-half of the hotel in use.) Negative hotel has no comfort (of everything bald and sterile) reminded somehow of a station concourse, animation abysmal arrogant and in bad, food (very italostyle ) is definitely not 4*, but one found something. Drinks, also coffee, Latte be too many at the beach/pool in non-returnable -plastic cup published, mini bar only with a ... bottle of water filled, almost everywhere only self-service(annoying) We as a people Egypt-tourist(21 times) say the brayka is for egyptian conditions a really good hotel the middle class, with, i am so express, international guests(50% italian, 40% russians and 10% the rest Europa) \u263a There is better hotels, the but also much more expensive (Iberotel Coraya, Iberotel palace in ssh, and so on) and the people the in Egypt the stars with which in Turkey, Canary Islands and so on comparisons want, which are here anyway in the wrong place and better go there again \u263a Maybe one should still mention, that the hotel suitable for wheelchair users is, there are in the whole hotel rolli ramps next to the stairs and the access to the pool and to the beach and all other facilities is at least one of the 3 way possible. read hotel review
