Nice place, good food, friendly staff, no problems. Not large hotel with nice beach. Little bit windy place so snorkling may be some times problem. 10min wolking from hotel is a bay with turtles... waves and wind cause less clean water and visibility of the coral reef ...

Only point of critics is the absence of internet on the room. In a hotel of this standing that should be provided for. Management is concerned about quality and I... More

Not my usual choice of hotel as I prefer small boutique hotels, however, having stayed a week, I would highly recommend the Port Palace Ghalib. Reasons why I loved my stay: - The seaview suite I stayed in was huge with great facilities (nespresso / kettle / hairdryer / iron / two large LCD TVs). - The pool / beach... More
