Very nice newer hotel. The rooms have all sea or pool view. The three pools are the center the hotel. 1 slides pool (heated) a baby pool, and a swimming pool. The hotel owns a main restaurant, a pool bar, a beach bar, a lobby bar, a disco bar and a juice bar. I believe the juice bar is not part of the all-inclusive (there was but also never a). Another two restaurants (a fish restaurant and an italian), i do not believe the all-inclusive (there was never …  read hotel review

The true review

  • April 2014
Hotel is a small resort with 10 buildings for room - each buildinh has 2 floor - ground floor and 1. floor - from 1. floor you can see a sea, to ground floor you can go directly. both are good. Areal has very nice garden, 3 swimming pools - 1 for children, 1 hot, 1 cold, pool bar, bar at swimming pool, apotheke, doctor, a few shops (3, but for suveniers is inaf), disco. Around the areal is nothing. I recomend this resort for people, wich prefer a piece and relax - there is no possibilties for walking or ... shopping. The beach is not for old person or children - there is a mole/marina - and wonderfull see, the most butifall I have seen. We saw delphins, one miloion fishes, rays, turtless. for snorkeling is fantastic, for just swimming is it not so good. The food were excellent, many of vegetables and fruits, meat and fish every day, lots of sweets. And you can every time find something for you. There are also animations, wich are really friendly, and making good work - they are not intrusiv, that we appreciated. read hotel review

We stayed over the christmas season 2 weeks in the hotel and can only good things to say. It is a very nice facility, with a heated main pool included 3 slides and pool bar. The food was varied and very good. Different meat and fish sorts were almost every evening before the eyes of the guests fresh. Vegetables, fruit, salads all fresh and delicious. Room very good and clean, the mattresses are a bit hard, but with complaint immediately exchanged. Very nice staff, especially at the pool bar. We come back with security. read hotel review

Currency exchange at the front desk is not there no money. I after 4 ... days resigned. Only the friendly waiters hold the flag a little high, the room cleaning was good. Diem sepezialitätenrestaurants are closed. I have not seen where so many people do nothing. Here should Holiday-check times test.

The service in all areas was very good. Animation team is pleasant, not pushy. A good mix of people in the framework of its possible their entertainment program varied.

    Very large room. Antique furniture, large bed. Bathroom with tub, but shower is also possible. The air conditioning system was alright. And the door, when sleeping with an open window. Fridge in the room! We had a great view of the ocean with the sound of.

    Great location, close to the airport. Shopping is available in the hotel, on the beach and in port ghalip possible, souvenirs to get. Thus completely sufficiently. With appropriate contact availability with other guests and the animation team can nightlife be fun, for example in the disco. Private journeys can about the reception or the diving school be arranged. The great reef is a special reason, in order to return. The lifeguard did a good job and pay attention to the swimmers. Great bailout, we have seen!

The rooms are clean and have a good size. The design/ dekot has a little bit of 'you'll look for the baroque style' but the stöt not one is anyway hardly there! The wellnessabteilung, oh well, the sauna is a 3 person sauna in a room, as the jacuzzi. The gym looked pitifully from, therefore i did not visited. The massages were technically well executed, the rooms could have been a little nice decorated and cleaner and the towels were after the massage not replaced! A large NO GO here! The hotel was poorly occupied despite week, guess about 50-60 ... people - mainly divers and their families. The food was ok, due to the poor occupancy was the grill but often already 1 hour before official meal end switched off, so that there then only finished - maybe you prefer the time should be lowered! The resort offers an all-inclusive one gets at the beginning of a bottle of water which one then itself to fill. Before 7:00 and 23:00 this was unfortunately not possible! read hotel review

    The beach was beautiful, of course as it is usually in Egypt not ideal for swimming by the reef. A jetty at the end of the reef, here you can swim well, fantastic snorkeling and also directly great dive! From the Marsa Alam Airport it was only ~20 minutes - if you Hurghada must is about 3 hours by bus! To the right and left of the hotel is nothing. Marsa Alam city is approximately 30 minutes away by taxi.

  • Gastronomy
    3.0

    There was the main restaurant and an italian (not tried), a lobby bar (not used), a pool bar and a beach bar. Theoretically me there was apparently also a fruit and ice bar are, but it was too. The floor in the restaurant was often slippery from grillfett. The selection of meals was okay, unfortunately there was any label and the ' cooks' did often not what is in it. Tendentious locally-inspired cuisine, simply, okay for one week. No kulinirsches experience but edible. In the restaurant i did not want to sit, it was very noisy there (hallig) and had which from a station concourse. Outside it was nice to sit, but never set.

  • Room
    5.0

    Large rooms, relative hard beds, minibar, tv, telephone, hair dryer in the bathroom. Electricity only with room card - the means for abweseneheit was also the fridge! Everything was clean, the light in the bathroom long time until it was light. It would have been nice if the balcony was a bit for towels/hang up clothes would have been. You could also no leash even install (ground floor, only bricked, no railing)

  • Service

    Everything very mixed. The zimmerputzservice was great, and had every day a great hand towel animal built! The drinks were some fast and some not at all. Many is missing the attention if trash layed out, tables wiped and empty plates. And the pool bar the service was great! The management was tried complaints to clarify. Repairs were despite an indication of the front desk to the last day not done (broken lamp, locked safe). The hotel doctor was young, but very competent and tried hard! Without english it would be partly difficult to communicate.

    The entertainment was very hard, it was too silly. But the other seems to have. Directly at the hotel there was the lagoon divers diving center - absolutely great! Very helpful staff, very professional training. Individual care. Beach chairs were in order, towels and change somewhat difficult... Never someone was there, the guests were eventually served ourselves...
