It's a great hotel where you can enjoy your family holiday, and fully trust that your children's are safe, playing very well in a great green area, nice and safe seeming pool just near to the beach, even the beach is totally safe as well for the children's and for us too, where you can enjoy the corals and the...

Overall satisfaction score    (0-10).  4.1 Stay away from that hotel.  Food: I only had one dinner and one breakfast in that place and was way too much.   Score: 2.0 Quality: Most of it was awful, few things had a decent quality.  Variety:They only had two things to eat, and I cannot tell but probably everyday is the same thing. ...

I spent two nights at the Helnan to do some canyon hiking and to climb Mount Sinai. If you are planning to do the same, that place is a good option, but I would not have liked to stay for a week or even two. The rooms are a bit run down but seemed clean enough. The bed linen and... More

Stayed at the Helnan in October 2011. Originally stopped in and bought a day pass to snorkel. Staff very friendly. Decided to come back and booked 3 nights. Room was upgraded. Breakfast was excellent. Grounds and beach very clean.

We were there in july 2010 and it was beautiful. Unfortunately there were only 10-12 guests becuase of the uproars in Cairo... For us it was great, we had the pool for ourselves, but seeing 20 employees runing up and down only for us was a little bit embarassing! Part of the resort was already renovated and our room was...

Just stayed at the Helnan Nuweiba Bay Resort and it was fairly good. It really depends on your expectations; it doesn't match upscale beach resorts of Hawaii or Mexico, but is fine for a mid-range sort of place. The beach is fairly nice, the coral offshore is good for snorkeling, and there are good restaurants a couple hundred meters away... More

We booked a stay at the Helnan Nuweiba for 5 nights. The hotel is rated as a 4 start hotel, but it is hard to understand why. The staff seemed to be valiantly making an effort, but the entire infrastructure is very run down. There are "ghost" remains of previous attractions: an abandoned and blocked up "disco" on the beach,... More
