We don't often go back to a dive resort when there are so many new places still to discover, but the House Reef and friendly people at Coral garden enticed us back for a second visit (last November, oops, I'm late again!). Absolutely no regrets! It was much, much busier than when we first visited which is reassuring because it... More

Like others hotel chosen for seclusion and easy access to house reef. Room very clean and well kept, good food and unfailingly friendly staff (especially Rameses and Ibraham). Diving well organised and lots to see. Very relaxed, would certainly recommend and consider coming again. Just don't expect trappings of 5 star resort! My wife was diving for the first time... More

We have been to this hidden spot ner Safaga several times. First time in 2009 and the last time when we spent a very nice week there over Christmas holidays 2014. We were more than nicely surprised by the changes - completely new reception, a lot of rooms have been refurbished (alredy in 2013 but they keep working on this),... More

Chose this place because of access to house reef, and small size of hotel. Airport visas and transfer worked smoothly, friendly staff met us at hotel. Rooms big enough, food varied and good quality. Dive centre staff very professional and well organised, equipment and facilities good. House reef on 2 sides of bay offer plenty for a week's diving. Sandy... More

If you are looking for a small (40 rooms only) hotel with direct access to a lovely house reef via its private beach look no further. If you want to party look elsewhere. The dive base on site is helpful whether you want to snorkel or dive. No need to take a boat, one of the best reefs of the... More

We have just returned from our second visit to this resort. Small, quiet, friendly and fantastic diving. The rooms are clean and spacious. The restaurant offers a limted choice of food, all of which we enjoyed. Bar food at lunchtime was also good. It is a peaceful location. We had a room with a sea view, but nowhere is far... More

We chose Coral Garden because we hate huge impersonal hotels side by side on a strip of beach. This is the perfect antidote - only 2 hotels, one on either side of the bay, and this was the right choice with only 40 rooms and so a really personal, friendly feel to the place. The bay is very pretty with... More

“Ashes on my head!” as Tom the dive shop manager once said to us (and it made me smile). The reason I need ashes on my head is that this review is long long overdue – in fact I am having to fib in order to post it at all as we actually stayed at Coral Garden Safaga in November... More

If you are looking for a small and quiet hotel, this resort is for you. Located far from the big cities and from other hotels (just one on the other side of the beach but far enough). The rooms are clean and the staff is good. Recommended if you like diving! (just one negative note: the wi-fi is available only... More

We stayed for two nights at the Coral Gardens. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The manager tried to help find a part for my motorbike despite it being a holiday. Everything is clean and well presented, and the location is quiet and beautiful. Food was good. We went for two dives, and the coral and fish-life is in good... More
