Another fabulous holiday at Palm Royale
  • Recommended hotel

  • January 2015
We were at the Palm Royale in January but now we are home I just had to write say how great the holiday was at this fabulous hotel which has become our second home The hotel is fabulous and the grounds are well maintained by the gardeners. This is our 4th visit to the Palm Royale and this time daughter, son in law and 2 year old grandson came with us to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. Last May I asked her would she like a special exotic holiday for her big birthday and without hesitation she said no but ... I would love to come back to the Palm Royale for her actual birthday!! - Cannot give better recommendation than that ! We all enjoyed our holiday and looking forward to returning to our place in paradise and we all are already planning when we can come back to what is now our favourite place in the world. read hotel review

    The room was excellent with flatscreen TV, Tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar, free safe, toiletries in bathroom and free basic wifi It was well looked after by our cleaner who did some great towel art including room decorations with balloons and a Birthday Cake towel art for my wife’s birthday.

    The choice of food is excellent and one of the reasons that attracted us to the hotel in the first place and keeps us coming back. The Stella Buffet Restaurant offers excellent choice of food for breakfast, lunch and evening with a wide variety of dishes and theme nights during the week The La Terrace Breakfast room is stunning with at table service with both inside and outside areas. Both the Azur Bar and the Stella servive a good selection of food at lunchtime In the evening there are 4 al a carte speciality restaurants – Asian, Greek, Italian and Lebonese which has unlimited visits during your stay booked on a first come basis each morning for that evening. The Greek had Spiros and Stefanos who add a very authentic Greek atmosphere with their great singing together with the plate smashing and dancing. In the Asian there was also an excellent guitarist. All the food is of a high quality and freshly prepared.

  • Service

    We have stayed in many hotels in the world but service at the Palm Royale is second to none with all the staff attentive and professional. The hotel management is a very experienced international team who bring this level of service to this hotel. All the staff are so welcoming and friendly both to new and the many repeat guests who we have met during our stays. There is always members of the management team around the various venues and they do speak to the guests seeking feedback and ensuring your visit is up to your expectations. I would add they are not “pushy” or “in your face” and are very good at customer relations. If you want to have a chat with them they will willingly spend time with you but if you want to be left alone they respect your privacy but are still around should you want any help. For Angela’s 60th birthday the staff at the hotel really made the day for her with decorated tables both at breakfast in la terrace and our evening meal in the Greek restaurant. This was Angela’s choice of venue for the evening celebrations however it was not scheduled to be open that night but special thanks must go to Mr K. who made it possible for it to be opened for us by rearranging the restaurant rota . We really cannot mention everyone as all the staff are fantastic but we must say a special thank you to Mr Kannan, Lizel and Ahmed for the extra special service on Angela’s birthday. Thank you to all the Staff for another fantastic holiday and an unforgettable birthday!!! The Hotel is very child friendly and all the staff do make a fuss of them.

    There have been a number of improvements since we were last there which are as a result of feedback from guests including new changing rooms and toilets on the beach, the children’s pool is now heated ( 27 degrees and only 2ft (60cm) deep which our grandson absolutely loved) and the Spa pool (which is heated) is now adults only which is great if you want to have a quiet area to relax and have a swim Sunbeds are plentiful both on the beach and around the pool with clean towels available free of charge For the adults there is plenty of chillout areas both on the beach and around the pools and the animation team are around the beach most of the day mainly for adults if you feel active There is also plenty of water based activities including scuba diving, fishing , boat trips etc and on the beach there are quad bikes available for hire Tennis courts and a putting green are available at the hotel. The entertainment at night is fairly low key with Elena a lovely pianist in the Atrium bar, and entertainment most night in 2 of the 4 speciality restaurants. (See Food Review ). There are children’s entertainment every evening ( mainly aimed at the russian guests but that did not appear to be a problem for our granson) including Disney Character’s, cartoon shows and a mini disco all run by the animation team. Jonnies Bar has billiards and TV showing sport channels. There is also a Disco in Cleopatra’s from around 9pm for adults

    The hotel is on its own private beach and approx. an hour from Hurgarda There are no shops bars etc close by but there is an excellent selection of trips available and taxis from the hotel should you wish to venture out. It is not cheap to travel by taxi so majority of people stay within the hotel or go on organised trips.

A successful vacation in a great hotel. The spacious resort offers everything: from family friendliness (playgrounds for children) to peace and relaxation. The extensive beach invites you to take a walk. The restaurants offer variety and tasty food. The friendliness of the staff (from room boy to waiters to managers) is unmatched. We felt very comfortable all around in a first class hotel. We'll be back! read hotel review

Our first vacation in Egypt and we hit the bull's eye. We did have some doubts before we came. These were completely dispelled. In the hotel and the facilities overall, everything is very clean, even if the hotel does show some signs of wear. That did not bother us. Always very friendly and attentive service staff. The food in all restaurants and bars was tasty. It was also visually appealing. We liked especially, that there was a variety of different dishes and meals, local choices too. Beach and sea are a dream and equal with the Maldives. We found the ... spa area to be particularly good. Great massages made us a lot more limber and just felt great. Simply professional staff. Conclusion: We will definitely come back and stay longer! read hotel review

Not 5 stars
  • Recommended hotel
  • Friends
  • Translated
  • Beach holiday
  • January 2015
The hotel is unfortunately very, very worn. We would not give it 5 stars. The pool is showing rust around the lighting. The tiles on the floor (inside and outside) are in some places tripping hazards, and especially in the outdoor area are very damaged. The overall impression is nice and noble, but worn. The gardens are very well-maintained. The staff is really super nice. Real disadvantage is, that you are totally cut off from everything. You can't walk along the beach to the neighboring hotel. You can't order a taxi to the resort, because you are supposed to use ... their own car service. But please, 60,- € for a trip to Hurghada and back with a one hour stay! Please, for that price you can take the bus to Cairo 6 times! This is really bad. The ladies of the Guest Relations offer their help, but when you have questions they really don't know anything. They always send you somewhere. The best example: I wanted to ride and had seen by chance that the staff was in the stables. I inquired with Guest Relations about the price, which she was able to tell me after some time. Then I wanted to know how I can reserve, to which she answered that you don't need to reserve, I should just go to the beach, the man with the horses would be there. But I could have stood there for a long time, because the horses were all in the stables! Great!:/ Well, I realized once again that you are better off helping yourself. read hotel review

On the 17th of December, we could finally escape winter for the 3rd time in a row over Christmas / New Year's! In the Palm Royale in Soma Bay. Overall, it was the 8th time in 2 years we have bet on this place. We were thrilled again. Not one complaint in 18 days, just terrific. The room is sensational, the food at the buffet and the restaurant is just great. We always had breakfast in the open air and in the evening you could usually sit outside. The beach is unique, just like in the Caribbean, some of it ... with very shallow warm water. So where are we going in March? You have 3 guesses. We'll tell you about it in April. read hotel review

We were greeted very courteously. The staff was very friendly, especially to our little granddaughter. The food was very good and varied. For the children, there was a separate small buffet. The waiters were very attentive and very friendly. The rooms were spacious and were always cleaned very well. The pool was very well maintained, and the entire facility makes an excellent impression. The beach was always clean and you had a lot of room on the beach. This hotel is very suitable for families with children. read hotel review

We stayed as a family with two grown daughters in december for the first time in this hotel and really felt very well cared for. Of the unrest in the country is absolutely nothing to be felt. Despite the lower utilization at nothing was saved. The service was excellent, and thanks to the competent and lovely lobbymanagerin Marina quid could all our questions answered. Even a change of room after three days was unproblematic. At the clean beach there were good beach chairs in sufficient number, windschutzzäune served as a privacy fence. The water was fantastically, bathing shoes necessary. The ... animation was unobstrusive. We'll be back! read hotel review

Totally relaxing holiday was possible here. Restaurant no clue for security risks. The hotel offers a very good service. A german chef, a german lobbymanagerin and the hospitality of the country make the holiday to erholungserlebnis. Drive in the spring and again in the same hotel. Ideal for active holidays such as windsurfing, kite-surfing and diving, but also for a beach holiday in wind-protected bay to relax in the best way suitably. The hotel has the best location on the Soma Bay. read hotel review

In the past 30 years we have the 18 time in Egypt arrived ( Hurghada, safaga, Marsa Alam, Kalawy, Makadi, lahamy, dahab) and overall to 4. the Palm royale. A relatively objective assessment is us hope. In this holiday for us was a increase in the variety and quality of the dishes clear as well, as in the already almost family-like tranquil courtesy and friendliness of the staff in all areas to us. Remarkably, that very many guests of the last visits this once again encountered. We have felt ourselves super well and seriously criticize one could actually do nothing. ... We need no extraordinären shows and animations, but welcome the warmth, a nice place to stay, good service, varied - good food, a great garden and palm area, as well as the sea and the sports facilities on site. So hardly any critique, if anything, the special type of darbringung of booked all inclusive services may merit discussion (no cocktails at the bars, a bottle of wine with the meal), since however no (alcohol) misuse emerged, is therefore also a certain advantage. Perfect are the opportunities for kiting and surfing at a spot and the relatively middle schnorchelpätze ( somabayspitze with the taxi to four of us -25 - and tobi Iceland with the boat per pers 25 -). Value for money is for us the Palm in Egypt very far above and we will certainly not the last time here. read hotel review

Great hotel with a palm tree and great surf We were received very nicely and were immediately through the hotel run. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The german lobbymanagerin Marina p. has great care of us. The rooms are generously equipped and in a very good condition. The view on the pool and the beach was really great. Morning to wake up and from the bed of the sea to look, as starts the day but good. Then breakfast in 'la terrassa' and the day was so good as he was. The breakfast and the staff were top ... notch. The food in the dining room and in the a la carte restaurants was very good. Especially stop us the asian restaurants like the food was perfect. We felt very comfortable and are definitely coming again. For surfers and kite surfers the surf station ' surfmotion' of Peter meter highly recommended. Nice people, great material and one of the best surf spots i've ever been to (and i know many). read hotel review

Twice and always again! Hotel area with about 450 rooms of different categories. Rooms in the main building are equipped with a lift within easy reach. 2 further wohntrackte ' Cleopatra building and nefertiti building ' offer everything, what one can wish oneself. Next to luxury suites for extended there are superior rooms with or without sea view, beachfrontzimmer, rooms with direct pool access and there are also sparvarianten possible. For us again a special highlight is the entrance. The Rooms and grounds are very well maintained. What a blessing for the feet on such a rasenanlage to go. Our ... experience after 14 years Egypt no experiments and thus we booked, as in every year, an all-inclusive package, which slightly more expensive than the half-board is available. But but no rude awakening, if one drinks be ordered, which is not half-board includes and blatant expensive and thus the actual budget blow. One has also the possibility a all inclusive package to book. Italians, frenchmen, englishmen and russians formed the majority to germans, austrians and swiss. A alersschnitt is difficult though.

    Our room (number 2003) in the Cleopatra building from the main building coming right) was absolutely fantastic. Even though this room on the inside of the area, but from the terrace direct view to the sea. The size of the room, the facilities and the cleanliness were very good. Now, if you are looking for, then you will certainly find something, to complain to. Kettle for the existing coffee or tea bags are exactly the same as the mini bar available. We were once again very satisfied and say on the times, in particular, the guest manager Marina and of course the wizard front manager kannan subramaniam for the very thoughtful and absolutely friendly service, thank you very much.

    Next to the main restaurant cafe Stella, the breakfast, lunch and dinner is, are still 4 further theme restaurants available. There are an italian, greek, asian and a lebanese. In the last year we had the asian favors. Live cooking! This year was it again. But also the other 3 restaurants were very, very good. One had always the feeling, that everything was freshly prepared. Not all dishes and drinks are served at the restaurants for free. Please the map carefully read. There are both whet described in english, arabic and now even in german. But also the food in the main restaurant was great. Already on the 2. day knew some employees already, what we wanted to drink and which room number we have, as this for the order was important. If we have caught our food, the drinks were already chilled ready. I call this exemplary. In the last week, the team will changed and we were catered to change notice. The week before the food was spicy and you could really differentiated the different taste buds claim, but does not mean, that the food in the 2. week was not edible. The fact is, if the kitchen alternates, it tasted just a little different, because each chef cooks after your own recipes. This is but we also, or? A tip is of course always gladly seen.

    As with the first time we were very friendly with probably tempered drinks and small frischetüchern welcome. We had the feeling, that we welcome and felt right at home. After some nice empfangsworten by the guest or lobbymanagerin Marina quid and the front-office manager kannam subramaniam we were now curious, whether we in the first completed correspondence, our wishes were taken into account. A friendly receptionist led us then on the already prior to reserved room and examined together with us, whether everything correct is. What can i say, everything was fine and the rooms and the location was even better than we had expected. It was in the 2. week serveral smaller complaints, but taken care of immediately and not like in other hotels only been heard. All in all we can only say, that these small complaints really immediately and to our satisfaction. The bed is too hard, missing glasses or are they dirty, informed the reception or Marina or kannan. I can only say, that these things in a short time and exemplary nature were eliminated. I call that service! Although sometimes the conversation is a little difficult, as one had in the hotel the feeling, that all the staff make an effort, to make everything right for the guest. We had at no time the gefüh, l not be understood. With a bit of english and goodwill you understand! The child care we can't say. However, there is a playground on the beach and a covered facility. Briefly from the hotel, to the right, is the doctor and a pharmacie. Short note: constructive criticism from the hotel very gladly accepted and, where appropriate, also directly implemented.

Sauna, thermal spa are within the area. The quality of the treatments i can't say anything about it. But in another hotel a Kleopatra-massages and can only say, you should have experienced. The pooljungs and beach boys are great. With a bit of baksheesh and human empathy do everything for a. The beach - or buchtabschnitt are very well maintained. The water quality is good. No algal growth and also in the august no jellyfish. Beach chairs and cushions are new, but by weather and stress already affected. Umbrellas and beach chairs were enough available and have a healthy distance to the next. Since i anyway no so large liegengänger am and always in motion should be, i was the auflagenstärke a bit too small, so that i have already after 3. day no longer knew, if i left, right, on the stomach or back beach chairs should. As i now divers am, i found the dives in the new basis' divein' somewhat contrary to. Long lasting joy not, since i was on a trip on the thigh very strong infringed and barely could walk.

    The Palm royale is so about 45 kilometer from the airport Hurghada away. Through the local highways can be reached even with smaller amount of stops at other hotels the objective in about 45-60 minutes. Who wants to, in Hurghada or safaga, both places are relatively quickly reachable, shopping or go shopping. Current rates we from good reason from and recommend, rather on its own territory to move. It will be at the Palm royal apart from the main restaurant, 4 further theme restaurants offered. Italian, lebanese, greek and asian you can food. A day before in the hall please log in. In the hotel there was a small shopping arcade. But, this is very expensive. Prices like in London or Moskau. Also here action, 50% are already possible. Depending on where you need only a few steps to the beach. For the, the the busy beach stay and dinner play want, is located in the hotel a disco. For the gesitteten among us, is the johnny's bar is the place, a maintenance or billiards chill out. But good clothes, because it is very cold there. For all other, otherwise also the shisha corner, next to the lebanese, to.

We were now about five times Egypt. Each time we were from the country and its inhabitants loved it. I) always again you drove with the idea of home 'couldn't be better' It still an increase of great returns, then nent it palm royal -Soma Bay. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. A personal welcome and a guided tour through the extensive grounds have we in other hotels experienced. The staff is considerate, friendly and very efficient. Always has the wellbeing of the guest in the eye. One notices here begins the friendliness was not after the first ... tip. The food was delicious and fresh. It was always refilled. Was something for every taste-from vegetarian to grilled it was simply delicious. Theme evenings rich buffets varied and never boring. If you really want something else has, can be dinner in the different restaurants of the hotel serve. The rooms were huge. Two sweeping single beds, comfortable dark wood furniture, flat screen tv and mini-bar made for a pleasant atmosphere in the rooms. These were thoroughly by the respective staff cleaned. Towel and bedding were changed daily. The audience was next to german rather eastern european, italian and french. Very pleasant people. None is through excessive drink or lautsein noticed. Conclusion: if you want a undisturbed bath vacation would like to spend, is in this house very well cared for. We would like to thank the entire staff for the beautiful hour and look forward to seeing you. read hotel review

Large hotel, huge, pleasant cool pool, little music noise (except for water aerobics), large spa area with pool, pool chairs, sauna, steam room, whirl pool (it is already very worn out, the 4 jets worked only more a), weight room. Restaurant pleasantly cool, sometimes even too cool. Music in the restaurant sometimes too loud, on the terrace quiet. Excellent cuisine (we had the half board) and very extensive. Drink prices normal, service quick and unobtrusive. Other customer service (by guest relations, lobby manager, and so on.) Excellent, you can really go with, suggestions and complaints. We will be back (then already the 5. time)

    Since we surfers are, we have directly at the hotel to room near the surf station and asked also. The cheaper budget rooms are in the decor the same, but are a long way from the beach away. Airport shuttle about 1 hour. Excursions were offered, we didn't use. Medical care (also pharmacy available) very good.
