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

We stayed yet another week at this very nice place for the fourth time. The hotel is very relaxed and the atmosphere is calm. The food is very good and you have a variety of restaurants/bars to choose from. Rooms are clean and have good standard. The staff is very friendly and serviceminded. The hotel has its own beach with a lagoon where you always can bath. There is also a peer which ends at the reef slope. Snorkling is fantastic there. If you are lucky you sometimes see doplhins. There are local sales people on the beach and they ... are friendly and can take no for an answer. There is also a small local market with shops. If you are looking for a nice hotel with all inclusive with great service then I really recommend this hotel. read hotel review

Great Hotel with Great Choices of Facilities provided for Families Holidays, Sport facility and Excursion is also good. However, need more Entertainment for Adult & Solo travellers in the evening! A large Resort with lots of European holiday makers from all ages. With Good Customer Service but always room for improvement especially with a 5* credential. Culture differences, generally staff should be more aware of Solo Travellers and that women do travels alone! read hotel review

    Great Pool choices and water sports activities and entertainment for kids. Although lack entertainment for Adult traveller in the evening. Excursion is not directly linked to the Hotel, however could provides better transport for small group travelling if minimum booking was made and especially for long journey such as Luxor trip. Driving & Drivers should take more care especially on unfinished roads with full of pot holes. SAFETY Issue Drivers stay OFF MOBILE PHONE while Driving!

    Good Service but always room for improvement especially with a 5* as a credential. Great Customer Relation Team dealt with complaint efficiently and quickly if and when needed. Most Staff members at Front Desk speaks good English, French, German, other languages is also spoken in other parts of the Hotel. With culture differences, general staffing need to be aware that women do travels alone!

    A Good Size Double Room but Very Dated Soft Furnishing, TV & Bathroom Fittings. Cleanliness is good in general in the room and at the Resort but could be better in public toilet areas.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    Restaurants for all inclusive package holiday have good selections of dishes, Cakes and Salads but lack of different types of Fruits apart from the basic Apple, Dates, Banana and Oranges. It would be nice and could do with more Local Dishes available as everyday option since we are in Egypt. Most importantly, staff need more training on Basic " Food Allergies & Intolerance" and Cross Contamination issues. Also understanding what Gluten Free/ Lactose Free diet / Vegetarian/ Vegan diets is all about and are most important. Perhaps, more training needed on how to cook Egg should be cook , Fry /Omelette and not drowning it with Oil and the Different between Ham & BACON. :) A Needs and Must have for "Warning Label" on the food counter where there are Products/Dishes that is contains Nuts. As restaurant staff don't always understand the question asked.

    As it was my first time visited to Egypt I have not much to compared with in term of location. However, the areas is good and quiet though it is a little far from town or city. Great facilities and entertainments for families with children at the hotel but lack of things to do in the evening for Adult & Solo traveller/s. Varieties of Excursion that is available which is good if you are not a person that like to sit on the beach the entire holiday.

I've been in egypt for several times, different places, but akassia is my favorit. In general i would like to describe it as as great. The gardens are so beautifull, the staff treats you like kings and queens and always with a smile, the rooms are modern and well cleaned every day. Akassia is all in, and i would say starting from the breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is great and a lot of different choice The desserts. Mmmmm. I met several nationalities from italy, germany, belgium All kind of ages. For me this is a hotel where i ... can relax at the different pools, the beach, or an active holiday due to the animation and where my kids always have fun. read hotel review

This was a wonderful Vacation! We were snorkeling almost every day. And we saw so many fishes and other Sea animals. The House Reef was exellent. And then was there a Hotel Bus. He was taking us to a nearby Bay (5 minutes) for free. The Reef there was also awesome. In Adition to that we have to recommend the excellent Ice Coffee we got almost every day at the SeaViewBar. Thanks a lot to the hard working men there - Aziz and Fady. Good job! It was very nice to meet you. Also the whole Resort - it was ... really comfortable to be there. We hope to come back soon. read hotel review

We were two couples that went to Akassia and we had a very good time. The food were good, very big variety of the dinner-buffé. The pool at Akassia was big and clean, it was not hard to get seats either. The beachbar was the best place to sit at, very very nice. A big thankyou to Mohamed who worked there, he really made our journey to the hotel even better. Sameh Arafa who served us at the dinner was also amazing.
