Nothing to write home about really. While not a horrible experience, it was definitely a very forgettable one. Unpleasant staff, bad food, noisy pools, weak alcohol, no Internet connection, and ubiquitous mosquitos... I guess it COULD have been worse -- it wasn't traumatic, just lacked even a tiny teeny bit of a WOW factor. At the same time, my diving... More

The hotel looks very nice with Nubian buildings but the front desk service is arrogant and unhelpful. We got 2 rooms, one double, one triple, and the front desk manager refused to tell me which was which. When I asked him a second time he threw a fit and told me the baggage carrier would tell us. Then he ignored... More

Spent one week at Abo Nawas in Marsa Alam with my brother. We are aged 31 (me) and 23. The only negative thing in our stay was the presence of terrible mosquitos (only during the night) that made it impossible to sleep. The hotel provides a disinfestation service every evening before dinner, both outdoor (beaches, gardens, etc) than inside guests'... More

The hotel was nicely set out in lovely well managed gardens. The pool area offered something for everyone, and also included a bar in the middle. The food was of good quality but if you are used to 5* in other countries do not expect the same. There was a large choice and plenty for everyones taste. The local beer... More

I stayed here in March , the hotel is all inclusive , if you are able, get a room in the 300 series as they are near to the pool/reception/bar etc , those that stayed in the 500/600 had problems with hot water. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly , there is nowhere nearby to go for food... More

I couldnt fault it . Although I was on my own there was no problem with the men. The other clients ,Italians and Germans were great.The... More

Our stay in the hotel was realy relaxing, all of the personal was very friendly. The food was ok, except fish. Other things like (clorhine) water, spraying against bugs and moscitos are normal for this part of our planet Earth. So, if you are not expecting the high european style of vacation, you might be more than happy there. It's... More
