Stayed for 8 days early April and enjoyed the place from minute 1. Efficient, informed and friendly checkin after 1.5h shuttle drive from Airport. Hotel-organized Limo straight to airport (our choice back home) is 40 minutes. Most staff fluent in German and English. Easy next-day room change for sea view. Room (8.2xx) was spacious, clean with a large bathroom. Beds... More

Nice holiday in the warm sun, great beach lovely bay. Spacious clean rooms, the staff are fantastic and helpful. The food in the hotel restaurant was very nice for breakfast and dinner. The only drawback in the hotel was the kids club, the staff there was very unfriendly, not helpful and incompetent and cancelled almost all the kids activities other... More

We stayed at this property for one week and we had a great time and managed to totally relax. What we enjoyed the most was certainly the Laguna Club Lounge where you experience a true sense of hospitality and luxury- other restaurants can be quite full or lack of coziness, Laguna Club was our little retreat everyday for lunch.

I stayed at the hotel while doing at diving course with Orca divers. That was a mistake in itself as the diving centre is a good 20 minute walk each way from the Kempinski. Ignoring that, it was still a big mistake to stay at this hotel. The hotel is only a couple of years old so at least the... More

This hotel is run by a hard-working, dedicated team. I have a lot of good things to say about it; for example, the main restaurant is artfully run by the lovely Nagwa (hostess who quickly learns your room number and whisks you off to your seat); the tireless Romany, who is as charming and efficient a waiter you will ever...

The Kempinski is truly a 5 star hotel. Staff: Wonderful. Couldn’t be more helpful, courteous, efficient, and you are always greeted with a smile. Food: Absolutely excellent. Having toured the kitchens, my wife and I were most impressed with the cleanliness, and the organization of the kitchens. The hotel has its own organic fruit and vegetable garden. The fish, meat,...
