We were on Marsa for the first time, a nice hotel, beach with gradual entry into the sea, the corals. Beautiful lagoon, so if was a red flag, was no problem to swimming or snorkeling...Better snorkel on the second side of the dive center. We saw turtles, stingray, lots of fish. At the hotel we was happy with everything, housing,... More

The rooms are cleaned everyday, pay he man a little extra and you will be surprised. For breakfast, lunch and diner there is a lot of choice, mostly Italian... More

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
