Everything is very good and on high level: room (room service), food, swimming pools, beach, serive. Coral reef is beautiful, you can see the beautiful variety of fish and sometimes a sea turtle. But the big advantage of this hotel are animators: OKSANA, RICARDO, MONDY, MAGDALENA and MIDO. Without THESE people vacation in this hotel would not be interesting. They're... More

Flooded by Italians and therefore all entertainment is Italian. Rooms are not too clean, I found hair all over the room and even in the bed that wasn't clearly mine. There was a room safe, but it was not attached to anything and I could easily lift it up and put it in my suitcase. Safe??? Perhaps not so wise... More

This is a decent hotel :) We came to dive with kids. So, we chose the place mainly, because the dive resort easily picked us up from the hotel every morning and it was close. The food is plantiful, but is not very refined... much and different style, but ... well, what do you want from "all-inclusive"! :-) Pools are... More

I enjoyed all the activities I participated in while there. And enjoyed the company of those who worked there. Particularly Marco, Kero, Mido and Mundo. They made my stay exciting and the environment comfortable. If I had the opportunity to visit again Marsa Alan I would stay at Crowne Plaza.

I would say that rooms are relatively small, but adequate, nicely decorated and ready with all accommodation, i.e. Cloth iron. I loved the restaurant , workers are doing their best to... More

Accommodation fine, although I still did not understand why the hotel is divided into " sands - closer to the sea " and " oasis - the garden ." I paid for the sands and got my room (and - on the advice of a delegate - to pay baksheesh $ 20 ) No 2104 that is left of the... More
