The plan was to stay there for three nights, so foolishly i paid full payment to the guy who checked us in, the apartment was super dirty and... More

We stayed in Criss for just one night. The owner, Mr. Youssef was very kind and helpful. The location is 5minutes walking distance to Naama Bay, which has Hard Rock cafe and plenty of other restaurants and a little Carrefour. Room price is reasonable too.

I would like to start by saying there was alot of good about the Criss. The grounds were beautiful and the two bedroom apartment was a nice size. The A/C unit in the living room worked quite well. The units in the bedrooms did not cool at all. The A/C unit in the living room was powerful enough to reach... More

Just a short stroll down a slight hill to all the Namaa Bay attractions. A well stocked supermarket nearby. The resort is very quiet, set well back from the main road. The one bedroom apartment (booked with sharmlettings) was a good size and clean. Any problems were immediately adressed by Joe. Travelling when confined to a wheelchair is never easy... More

We never had water problem , we never refund any money and no gusts left before the check out time. I think the gust has been mistaken by placing his review and not meant our lovely resort. More

We have just come back from a 5 day stay at the resort. Joe the host made the holiday smooth and hassle free. The taxi arranged by Joe was lower that the normal price and was at the airport to meet us. The apartment had everything you need for self-catering and good air-conditioning units (both bedroom and main room). There... More
