The check in was a bit chaotic, although not lots of guests arrived. Room could only in the afternoon be changed. We were already 6 years in this hotel and were actually good things. Unfortunately we had to determine that the state no longer the hotel description is. Maximum three stars! …  read hotel review

Very family-friendly hotel with a lot of activity opportunities for children. Wide range of food and drinks. Also convenient for divers - competent dive center, where you can do a lot of excursions. Very beautiful beach direct at the hotel, with own house reef to dive or snorkel. Special thanks to Sam, a very friendly animator and to the best dive instructors, who made our stay in Akassia perfect. read hotel review

Amazing Holiday
  • Recommended hotel

  • Beach holiday
  • June 2015
It was our first time visit in Egypt and we couldn't imagine better place to stay for our holiday. We really enjoyed every day on the beach, (if there is possibility to go snorkeling it's a wonderful experience,cause the sealife there is just beautiful and I've never seen such a clear and clean sea as this one), as well as many activities which we had possibility to join with some of the animators. They were all very friendly, always in a good mood and smiling, and our son especially liked one of them called Sam. As we found out ... after a few days, apart from being a great dancer, helpful and caring person and animator in all ways, he is also incredible with children, they all adore him. We all had a lot of fun together. We had an amazing time and one of our best holiday ever so we would definitely recommend this Resort to other people, who are plannning to visit Marsa Alam. read hotel review

Great family resort
  • Recommended hotel

  • April 2015
Great family resort, lovely beach, superb snorkelling off the reef just off the beach. Great for beginners to start in the beach pool, where our kids saw the blue-spotted ray who is always there, and an octopus, lion fish and moray, then out to the reef where there is tons to see. We also dived with the hotel, and this was excellent, instructors quietly competent and very supportive - first diving experience for one daughter who loved it, and lots to see for more experience people. Go to El Sheik Malek to dive and see a sea cow - amazing ... experience! Food excellent, and all the staff very helpful and really enjoy their work. This is our second visit, and many of the staff including reception, waiters, room cleaners and gardeners are the same which says a lot for the hotel. Ibrahim B. was our waiter throughout our stay, and was excellent, very efficient and friendly. Pick the tables outside by the pool, and you will find him! We will be going back again. We have a 12 year old, 11 year old and 5 year old - where else can you have such a great water park, swimming pools, beach, snorkelling and diving, all on site. read hotel review

The Club Calimera Akassia Swiss Resort is winner of Best Hotel top 10 of Trip Advisor. That gives you as arriving new guest ahigh expactation. Let me tell you, it is true. We are 2 adults with two boys from 14 and 19 years. We had all-inclusive and arrived at 19.30. One of the managers welcomes us and gave us a check-in form which we could fill in at a seat in de lobby. Then our suitcases where brought to our room while we could enjoy the diner. The staff is very friendly, including the men who cleaned the ... room. It was very clean, also in the Aqua Splash. Every day another theme at the buffet. And the waiters where dressed different, like the theme. Our special thanks to Ibrahim B. We miss him allready. read hotel review

    One thing: the mattress of the beds are very hard. That is the only minus. There is a free safe, there are small bottles of water in the refrigerator, which you can refill for free outside the room with cooled water from watertanks.

    Everybody is very friendly. And a special word of thanks to Abrahim Bedir. He made a beautiful table for my husbands birthday, and the day after again because our son was sick so he could see it also. We got a birthday cake from the hotel, very nice surprise.

    The Club Calimera Akassia Swiss Resort has everything to have a nice holiday. During our visit there was a strong wind everyday. That gave a red flag so no snorkling in the sea but at the beach there is a special part between the reef where you can also see some tropical fish and where it is save for children. You can also go with a bus from the hotel to a Mangrove bay (free) to go snorkling. And there are excursion possibilities for snorkling and diving also. A very nice thing to do is the sunset trip into the dessert on quads. There is a small shoppingcentre in the hotel. But between het airport and the hotel, there is only dessert.

    the swimmingpools (there are a lot swimmingpools) are very clean en the water is heated. There are nice area's for little children but also swimmingpools where you can relax. The Aqua Splash is very nice and safty is garanted by staff.

    The staff speak English very well and our children learned al lot of Egypt words. The room was cleaned every day, and clean towels also every day. At the swimmingpool / beach there was also al towel service, every day a new clean towel. On the beach there are al lot of man trying to sell an excursion or manicure/beathy but also if you don't want this, they are interested in you as a person and make a small talk. Very friendly.

  • March 2015
In March 2015, I returned to Akassia for the fourth time. I have always been taken good care of when arriwing there. Wheither you got there for the first time, or as for me the fourth. The staff is always helpful and eager to help. I would especially like to thank Supervisor Fouad Baheeg in the reception, Always professional and any issues that arose were resolved within a short time with satisfactory results. The food is varied and always tasty, orderliness nicely laid out, everything is neat and tidy in the common areas, special thanks also to Said Elmarsafi at ... the restaurants both outside and inside, outside with the wonderful views of the Red Sea where the lunches are taken, as well as inside at the the hotel's main building. Rooms are clean and pure. The hotel maintains and renovates all the time for it to be as good as possible. What may be a small minus is the quality entertainment that is in the evenings reminiscent of amateur evening. There is not much to do in terms of activities, but for me who want peace and quiet, sun / swimming and snorkeling is perfect. read hotel review
