The hotel near to the Sharm El Sheikh International airport and the city Naama Bay. The rooms are very-very old and simple. The gardens and around the pool are very dirty. Everywhere glass, foods, and other things. Not enough staff and they get very low salary. I think, this is very big problem here. Here is all inclusive snack and all inclusive plus. Both of same, just the plus is more like the snack. The guests many Russians and Russians, and Russians and some Arabs. Very long years ago this hotel was a good choice, because the guests came from ... Italy, Netherland, Germany, but now NOT. read hotel review

    Lot of room in the hotel, but they are very poor and old the furnitures. Was for me a room with balcony. Safe, TV and telephone in the room. Hairdryer in the bathroom. The bathroom with shower. During the day, several times a power outage and water supply. The air-conditioner very loud and don't working well.

    The wifi not free in the reception. Kids club don't work in. The animators working every day, but very-very poor the programs. Showers are around the pool, but not have on the beach. On the beach don't have toilet and showers. If you want to go toilet, you go to up and there, you can find them. Terrible. Lot of sunbeds and not enough sunscreen on the beach. The beach is sandy, the water should the water shoes. At the hotel there three coral reef stretches. The magnificent coral reef, so we went.

    The beach very far away from the buildings. If you want go to the beach, you go down 5-600 meters on a long sandy road, or stairs (about 130 stairs). Very wearing and the bar on the beach not too good. There are tea, soft drinks, beer a very simple bar.

Instruction: i was unfortunately only 2 nights in the hotel ( before a tauchsafari )... The great location right by the sea of ras umsid location, view of the red sea and Ras Mohamed, wonderful beach area ( stairs to the beach) wonderful pools and an always friendly staff! Altogether the hotel is very big... Approximately 450 rooms and centrally located ( 15 minutes to the airport) huge range of sport, animation and water sports in every conceivable rule.! Good restaurants and widely varied audience give the whole a special flair. In short: gladly again at any time read hotel review

I think this is ideal hotel for young people and in middle age. Farana has big area, pools with clean water. Animations team is professional but shows are always in italian. Personel speaks in english and italian. Most people from Italy, nice atmosphere :) When you wanna go to city U can take yellow taxi. Meals delicious. Reef near hotel really wonderful. Fishes colorfully and amazing. I want come back there :) (My parents had beautiful apart, 2 floors, 2 TVs, 2 toiletts and in font of small garden). read hotel review
