Hotel is in the middle of nowhere. It takes about 2hrs from airport to the hotel. But, as compensation, offers this hotel very friendly stuff, beautiful reef, kilometers of beaches (You can make a trip to Gorgonia hotel - about 1,5 km and snorkel back) and compact nice areal, where is nothing far. Rooms, reception, pool or beach is only a few steps. Menu is, maybe, not so wide, as in big hotels, but quality and taste is very good. Cleaning service is OK. The guy perfectly know, when we are on the beach and he never disturb. In ... this hotel is aprox. 90% of italian tourist. Animation team is italian and they speak italian. If You don't speak italian, than don't expect animation, but You can participate evening program, and enjoy loud music almost all day-) I can recommend this Hotel for people, who can make own program, who like snorkeling, and who is looking for smaller nice hotel with great beach and friendly stuff. read hotel review

A super hotel with excellent staff, really friendly and of course beautiful weather. The food and drinks in the inclusive pack were very good and are served from early morning until 1am The dive centre and the Wadi Gamel nature reserve are out of the world.

It was my 3th stay in this hotel. The food getting worst a bit compare with last stay, but still fresh. some of part of room furniture required renovation and for more sensitive guest can be a small problem. As usual amazing drivings possibility with diving center. one of the nicer house reef I saw in my life. Really friendly staff and fully helpful. I hope I will back here soon. read hotel review

directly at the beach (160 rooms) personal atmosphere; at the moment no loud italian animation more. Very suitable for nature (snorkelling, diving, surfing, birds observations, long strandspazieränge.) From the bed you could the sea hear. Super diving, diving on site ; lies directly at the beach, every room with a view of the sea, very good snorkeling possibilities directly from the beach; 90 minutes transfer from the Marsa Alam Airport Who shopping and entertainment, is in the wrong place here reversed read hotel review

Good for scuba diving
  • Recommended hotel

  • May 2015
a good hotel. especially for diving. Good diving centre with own jeti and boats. Nice house reefs and about 30 dive trip sites on inner or outer reefs. Been here two times for a week and will be back again. Best diving I have done in Egypt )compard to several sites in Sharm el Sheik, Hurgahada and Marsa Alam. Only minor point in may is the strong wind which sometimes makes reaching an outer reef (with big fish) impossible. The hotel is very much oriented on Italian guests but if you can be tolerant to being an outsider its no ... problem. I'm from Holland and did some great dives with a group of very friendly German divers who were just as nice but fortunately not as noisy as Italians. Enjoyy! read hotel review

A restful and delightful resort along the Red Sea

It was my third stay in this delightful resort to benefit from the Red Sea and to practice diving. It is an excellent place to appreciate the deep of the Red Sea, the diving club and the hotel's staff are very friendly, and for those who are looking for rest. As a regular diver in Egypt, I'm looking forward to returning there. But if you are looking for animation and other activities except diving, it's not the right address. read hotel review

It is outrageous that the management, to accept guests, if the hotel is in construction for months, that is, the whole area is being transformed, noise and dirt, everywhere in the property. Was the second time in this hotel but now it is enough. already at the arrival at the reception of the stupid arrogant front desk, the rep of Neckermann wanted to know of the situation. After many travel to the red sea for the first time a holiday with chaos read hotel review

Excellent destination especially for divers! Diving under german management with striktem, but completely unobtrusive security policy. Only basis, the national park with only 2 (!) Small tauchbooten the reefs drive must, this means you the 46 in reach reefs convenient for yourself! It is, instead of board at noon on the ship to food (for 5, - €delicious, freshly prepared arab dishes). Food only drawback of the hotel: great breakfast! Dinner: if arabic day is great. Unfortunately emüht you, probably in relation to the italian families, european (italian) to cook, which didn't necessarily succeed. Good appetizers, desserts (always arabic) super ..., the main course you have just a bit look. However, we are always easily full! The friendliness of the service is hard to beat! They anticipated every single wish of the guests from! Thus the 'downer' no problem, we are now for the 6 time in there. Also nichttaucher (snorkeling) at a great strandriff fully at their expense. Wind for surfers perfect. Great child-friendly beach directly at the hotel. read hotel review

Its a nice hotel with bungalows Half of the bungalows in the north of the reception are being renovatet until april On the other side of the main street, which leads along the hotel, there is a shopping center with farmacy. But most of the schops were closed in january. There is also a noisy generator with exhaust fumes, wich are very strong to smell in the evening until morning, when the wind blows from land to the sea. I asked the general manager Mr. Tarek and he told me, that in the next time there will be built a ... chimney, so that the exhaust fumes will no more disturb the guests. Lets hope, that this will be realized soon!! read hotel review

    On the sandy beach there is a beach volley-ball field, a garden for children, and a big tent where you can smoke comfortably water pipe. There is a surf spot, beginning in march with a sandy beach especially for surfers. It is leaded by mistral by now, but eventually it will be sold in July. I hope instantly that the surf spot will be continued in the future!! The diving center next to the hotel must be very good and international. Near to the bar is the wellness center with good massage praxis and even a coiffeur and a fitness center. Even a medical is in the hotel.

    Very good is the nice garden along the sandy beach with nice sun umbrellas. There are short distances from the bungalows along the beach to the beach, restaurant, bar, swimming pool and reception, what is also very good. There is a nice riff where you can snorkel or swim or dive. Especially there is a nice inner riff and a riff a little bit outside and on the left and right side of the hotel beach for kilometers there is a beautiful riff along the beach. There is also a diving center next to the hotel with two yachts, on which the divers leave in the morning to 40 riffs, each day to an other riff. The surf spot was closed in january and february and will open in march.

Family hotel with very friendly, helpful, unobtrusive staff. Hotel very hard to the welfare of the guests. Food tasted very good to us; despite low occupancy, there was plentiful and varied. The hotel reef offered for snorkeling many possibilities and a fantastic variety of fish. Dudong inclusive. Diving under german management, good massage offer in the hotel. read hotel review
