Upon arrival to the hotel we were taken to our family chalet room, which was situated right next to the amphitheater where the entertainment is in the evening. The room was dated, one shower not working, furniture and floors dirty, the shelf inside a cupboard was missing, the towels were dirty and smelt, and a plastic up had been stuck... More

We stayed with pleasure in the hotel in June 2015. It has a very good rich coral reef, beach, territory, very welcome personnel. Food is another pleasant theme of Amphoras: chef from Turkey makes magic every time (in case if it's difficult to refuse Turkey for Egypt because of the eating:))): greeled dishes, lots of fruits, vegetables and confections.

We have visited Amphoras before, five years ago and returned because we were happy last time and wanted to bring our daughter who has never been to Egypt. We had a little issue when we arrived as the room we were given (which was lovely and near the beach) had only two beds and although we were promised a third... More

This hotel is situated in a reasonably good location , with lovely pools , a children's pool with slides, good access to the Red Sea and easy access by taxi to the town of Sharm. The staff were absolutely lovely. Unfortunately the quality of accommodation was less than we expected from a 4/5 star resort. "In desperate need of up-grading"... More

We had booked 12 nights at Aloha having stayed there in November. Upon arrival we were told they were overbooked and as returning guests we were being transferred next door to the sister hotel Amphoras.
