We were now for the 10 time in the utopia beach it is really our 2. home has become. The very well-kept garden area, and the room itself, have not changed. The hotel is in some parts already over 20 years old and thus with the new hotel palaces not to compare. We had another of the old bungalow rooms reserved, in the us the most comfortable feel.

We were lovingly and kindly cared for. The entire staff gave their utmost to make our stay unforgettable. Hospitality and warmth were a matter of course. We felt very well cared for. Any wish was literally anticipated before we could say it. Rooms unfortunately are not entirely up to the minute, but clean. read hotel review

Despite the tense situation, the service staff was very hard, all requirements. Especially the staff in the restaurant and bar area. Exceptions are also here, as everywhere. The menu repeated in the weekly rhythm. The food is in the last 3 years have improved. By the, the hotel attached diving station sub aqua, no day trips with the tauchboten offered. Reason: the jetty is verottet and belongs to the Nachbarhotel Pensee. Repair uncertain. So you were in the, however beautiful, reef limited. Zodiac is weather limited possible. In spite of this still a good value for money. Since the hotel ... was under egyptian management is, one wishes oneself sometimes the organization of a european management. Advantage: no russians, mostly regular customers. read hotel review

The hotel is already something come into the years, makes however a good impression. Due to the rather secluded location south of allen haupttourismusgebieten egypt the trip possibilities are unfortunately somewhat limited or have a whole day (Cairo,Luxor etc.). The location to the beach, the quality of the room and the friendliness of the staff, however, are very convincing. Just 'allah' from the bar in the hotel - lobby deserves a big thank you. diving we capitalized here, so no fear and a lesson show. It's worth it! conclusion: if you want a quiet, relaxed bath vacation would ... like to spend and on some amenities such as entertainment, animationsabende and proximity can do without, is here very well waived. read hotel review

Very relaxing, quiet hotel. No russians. Newer rooms very good, but with extra charge. The old rooms and bungalows are located in a very bad condition. Staff always friendly and attentive. Great service. Wireless internet access for 350 pound available. Cocktails and orange juice costs additionally and minibar empty or per day a bottle of water. The meal is in my opinion not recommendable. But is a matter of taste. A very nice holiday. read hotel review

Chicken and fish were in the daily offer. On hygiene: we have all tried and not a day failure had. The other guests confirm. A special highlight was the new year's buffet. So somewhat great had we not expected. Many, many thanks!
