Overal the hotel is good. Good points: nice and quiet location, makadi bay is the best area in egypt. The bay protects you from the wind and snorkelling is great here, theres no need to go on excursions. Food is generally good does come repetitive but is a good general standard. All soft drinks and beers are in cans so... More

A friend and I stayed at this hotel for winter break and to celebrate a birthday. Initially the hotel appeared perfect; good location, great room,( two double beds) pleasant and polite staff. But it soon became apparant that all was not as it seemed. The rooms air-condition didn't work and we were told that it was not 'warm enough yet'!... More

This is a lovely welcoming friendly location. The hotel is surrounded by acres of glorious green garden which is kept immaculate, the large bay is fringed by a long clean beach. Children played in the safe shallows and were able to watch fish at the shore! Coral reefs are easy to snorkel and a joy! The hotel itself is well... More

A lovely big hotel and the best thing about it you can walk into the water from the private beach and the snorkelling is simply wonderful. We went on a boat trip to see dolphins and do two snorkels and the snorkelling off the beach at Fort Arabesque was better. The staff are very friendly. The rooms are lovely. The... More

Stayed at this hotel recently for a week. Our first time and we chose this hotel from trip advisors recommendation. We loved it here. It's truly a fortified construction and well guarded. We did not venture outside unless to take an organised trip. We went to Luxor and it was an early start but they packed us breakfast and gave... More
