We were in this hotel for 4 weeks last January 2015. We had a very nice time. We had a very spacious room with a nice view. In January it was not so busy, so we had the opportunity to change to another block to a room with a very nice view on the sea and the desert. Seperate bedroom... More

Hello. We spent a great time in Aurora Bay, the best was animation team with a lot of energy and smiling all the time. Coral bay is really beautiful, many color fishes in the sea. Some staff can speak a little czech and also a little english. Rooms are clean, every day new clean towels. Air condition could be colder.

We have recently returned from our first holiday in Marsa Alam when we chose to stay at the Aurora Bay [we understand that it used to be called the Oriental Bay], and have to say that we have a lovely and relaxing holiday. In particular, we loved the pool area which was very well maintained and was always spotless. The... More

Hello everybody! I was the fifth time in Egypt with my friends. We spent our holiday in Oriental Bay Hotel. Probably our vacation would not differ from all other holidays in Egypt, if not the animation team. Many thanks to Julia, Vadim and Chico for those unforgettable bright days in Marsa Alam. This is the best animation team I've ever... More

We stayed for a week at Christmas 2014: The resort is wonderful, the beach is close and the grounds and swimming pool area are clean and beautifully maintained. Our room was quiet at the lower end of the resort, large and very clean. The food was very good, the selection was excellent and varied. Staff were friendly if a little... More

Hotel located in a bay with astonishing underwater life (turtles, stingrays, octopuses,..). Average hotel - speaking about food or accomodation, but the coral reef is the biggest and most colorful we've ever seen! Also the hotel garden is really beautiful. Evening programme - once a week is a fakir show, once a week dervish and oriental dancers. There is really... More
