Great holiday

  • March 2015
It was an excellent holiday for relaxing. Everybody from the staff was so kind and thoughtful to us, that we were really touched. Once when being unable to choose between the different meals (which were all very tasty) I stood around. A cook came to me and asked me if I wish anything else. He would gladly prepare it for me! The room was big enough and clean just as the bathroom was. We could keep the windows open at night as there was no disturbing loud music.The water in the pool was heated, a very pleasant thing on ... days when it was too windy for bathing in the sea. All in all we were very happy having chosen this hotel. read hotel review

  • February 2015
February 24 we came back from a 15 days stay at Jaz Dar El Madina. A fantastic small resort with private beach on the Coraya bay. No Russians. Food of excellent quality. The service was particularly good. As well as the animation team, which presented more as hostesses and less as clownish persons thinking their job is necessarily keeping everyone busy. The rooms are spacious, very clean with perfect beds. Cleanliness cann't be improved. We have been about 25 times in Hurghada (Dana Beach), but this suits us far better, especially for the small scale. Every fweek you will be ... asked by a poll form if everything is satisfactory, or whether you have something which can be improved. Any complaints / queries / comments are responded to immediately. Almost all the guests we had spoken planned to book their next vacation again in this fine resort. Jaz Solaya? Highly recommended! read hotel review

Especially noteworthy was the great service, which is definitely not a given in Egypt! The staff was consistently very friendly, helpful and hardworking. The hotel is located in a rather small and familiar area. The hotel was very comfortable. We recommend it! The diving school Coraya Divers is excellent. It isn't just for diving, but also for snorkeling. read hotel review

I was in this hotel with friends. We were 11 adults and 4 children. The stay was great! Friendly and accommodating staff, delicious food (national dishes were also great!), clean site. I've taken a couple of points off because of the beach, because it's quite far away, but it doesn't mean that it's bad. Since I really like lying by the pool, I didn't mind. It was pure relaxation! There was something for all ages. Very child-friendly hotel! So I highly recommend it and I'd love to go back! read hotel review

    Excellent. Lots of activities, the animation team was very nice, not too pushy but got it going. Aquaaerobics was very good, like a normal work-out. Lots of sunbeds and shades always available. Kids club was exceptional - so many activities: one day the prepared pizzas, the other they collected seashells on the shore and made necklaces etc etc. Sandra was running it and she is the best really! The minidisco was a must for our daughter every night and all the other kids loved it as well. Internet was complimentary for a certain volume that lasted for ca 4 days, then it was volume based charge that was very reasonable.

The hotel is beautifully kept, in a pretty garden. Everything is very clean, people are cleaning and tending to the garden all the time. It is a small, friendly hotel. When I stayed there most people were over 50 and older, mostly couples. Nationalities were French, British, German, Italian and Dutch. My type of accomodation was all-inclusive. This included all food and drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. read hotel review

    Fantastic room with great beds! It was spacious, had a desk, flatscreen television, two chairs, a separate sitting area which could be curtained off, in this area there were two couches. It also included a coffee machine (plenty of coffee and tea everyday, a telephone, big closet for my clothes with a safe and was air conditioned, mini bar (not free) and free bottled water. The outside terrace had two chairs and a table and a clothing rack. The bathroom was great as well, spacious shower (really good water pressure!), good lighting. Everything was exceptionally clean. The whole hotel was very well maintained.

    It is often hard to get buffet food right. I myself like spicy food, that was sometimes a bit hard to find. But the food was very fresh, lovely presented and if something ran a bit low that was taken care of immediately. The dining areas (as the rest of the hotel) is very clean and hygienic. Outside there is a nice barbecue area where every night different food is prepared. Very good chicken, lovely seafood and crab, all very well prepared. There are two a la carte restaurants, one Oriental-style (very nice food) and one Italian which I did not visit.

    Excellent, the best service I ever experienced in a hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and very nice. Most staff members spoke German and English, virtually no Dutch (except good morning etc). The room (and the rest of the hotel) was exceptionally clean. There is a laundry service and a doctor in the hotel. I don't know if there is child care during the evenings, during the day children can be entertained by the lovely animation team. The restaurant staff often asked if I had special wishes regarding the food. I had a few remarks about some things and they were dealt with immediately by the hotel management.

    There is a small animation team that is doing a great job. During the day they invite people to participate in all kinds of activities, but they do it in the nicest way possible. In the evenings there are different kinds of shows, dancing, fire/fakir shows. I received 150MB internet access for free, very nice gesture. There are plenty of sunbeds in the pool area and on the beach, you can get a fresh pool/beach towel every day. If you want to, you can always find shade, outside showers are available. There is a small pool for little children.

We have been to this hotel twice now and would not hesitate to go again. The staff could not do enough for you and if you wanted anything, sorted it out very quickly. The hotel and surrounding roads were all immaculate with no sign of any rubbish. The rooms were cleaned very well every day and the food was varied and good. There were a few children there who seemed quite happy. Of course we went in January when most are at school so I don't know how busy it would be in the school holidays. Even the bus drivers ... and security staff at the airport were friendly and the Egyptians seemed very grateful that we had gone to visit them even with the light unrest in Cairo. read hotel review

The star of the Coraya Bay - and of the whole red sea.

  • January 2014
We were in the past four years a total of seven times in different hotels in the Coraya Bay (dar el medina, Lamaya, solaya) and can only say, that the dar el medina still the absolute favorite is. Compared to recent years, the dar el medina on already very high level even further improved. The food was over two weeks always excellent and better than in many european hotels. For the whole of 'sensitive' there is also the possibility, individually pasta dishes put together to leave, or pizza, burgers, etc. To order, if you are going to the huge buffet ... but didn't find anything there. Especially the quality of the hotel considering the vegetables and beef dishes (steaks, beouf stroganoff etc.), we otherwise Egypt with over 35 travel never found. The fish dishes were also okay, but – Egypt typical -often a bit 'over-cooked' Especially in the winter months the hotel is simply perfect, as it is in the great courtyard always wind sit on the terrace and almost every weather outside food. The hotel itself is not directly on the beach, but half-back is, does not disturb at all, because the path to the hotel beach not further, as if one in other, larger hotels in the Coraya Bay in somewhat isolated room (circa 3-5 minutes) to the beach. In contrast to the neighboring hotel is the entertainment and the related noise at the dar el medina (luckily) very quiet and unobtrusive. It is a quiet hotel for couples and families with small children. Who ramba zamba wants, but always in one of the hotels in the area and to disco, shows etc. Participate. The gastro service is excellent, the waiters were very friendly and the service always worked faster than expected. All in all a great service, just, if the current circumstances in Egypt - from which you as a guest nothing can tell - includes. Unfortunately, the hotel have become so popular, that too many times (holidays, long weekends) is already difficult, there also room to get. (therefore, please do not repeat, how great it is.-) read hotel review
