Positive is the beach, especially if you have small children or want to learn to wind surf or kite surf. You can walk 75 meter into the sea and you're still only half submerged. From the first moment you arrive, they start to ask you for tips. Check in is at 14:00, you can get your room now, but... We... More

First impression was that the receptionist asked 30$ to accommodate us as soon as possible. Second was that the room was supposed to be a good one. To the contrary, nothing good. Old furniture, so the TV, AC not cooling but noisy, a lot of insect and the bathroom was a chapter itself. A lot of dirt all over, the... More

DON'T BOOK - DON'T BOOK - DON'T BOOK Conclusion: it was the worst hotel/resort experience in Red Sea. Dirty, Bad Smell and Poor service are the exact description of this hotel/resort. Don't trust pictures, it doesn't deserve One Star Hotel. I booked 2 rooms for 3 nights to enjoy Red Sea beaches at Safaga with family. I was guided by... More

I was terribly dissapointed by this hotel. The food was bad, burned, half cooked or just bland and the same every day, the drinks were watered down so you couldn't even get drunk (because they fear the Russians will drink too much and cause trouble) and they were warm, usually they din't have ice, sometimes they didn't even have enough...

It was our first stay at this hotel but also our last. Immediately after the arrival the shock of the room - ubiquitous crows and the balcony full of excrement, the shock of cleanliness in the dining, shock of ignorance and unwillingness staff - they was here only for Russian-speaking clientele. I would like to acknowledge the work of individuals... More

Hotel architecture : - plus: It is mid size (means not crowded), U-shape so that all rooms have sea view, nice lobby . - minus: lifts are in quite bad condition, wifi... More
