What a shame. This place is a great idea but many of the shops and units remain empty. We took a dive boat out of here and that seems to be the main use for the marina. Very limited number of restaurants, only a few serving any alcohol. The shop vendors like. Owt places I. Egypt are very keen to... More

Very sad, that the owner is not going on with building this resort. If it will be finished once, it will be a great place.

Very "in" , very VIP, cheap shopping :), great for divers who depart to high sea. The cafés, restaurants are very good. The area is restricted , very well secured, you will wander totally at ease at night. Enjoy a cup of coffee or a drink at the bay or port, where you can watch the divers preparing to sail... More
