A hidden gem

Anyone who rates this place poorly should be denied access to the Internet. This place is absolutely fantastic. A true oasis in the middle of nowhere. I would fly here just for the lamb alone. My wife and I enjoyed one of the best meals we've ever had overseas. Remember to book your... read more

Hi Stephanie, After carefully and repeatedly reading your review/email I would like to respond in few points: *During holidays all services and limits are stretched to the maximum, hence the hurry and stress observed on our staff. However they are polite, professional and one of the best in the field, they bend over backwards to accommodate every one during the... More

My husband and I were traveling to Sinai and friends had recommended Castle Zaman. They said it was the most amazing place in Sinai to watch sunset and they were right. Warm welcoming staff, just quiet enough and Delicious food. I totally understand what the castle has so many good reviews. Would definitely go back.

I visited this amazing place for the first time in my life with a couple of friends. It is a restaurant with very cosy bar and a wonderful pond like pool. I had their contacts through their website. I called and a very friendly staff answered my call and reserved a place for us. The place is situated over a... More

Wonderful food. Slowly cooked to perfection. I found the staff to be very helpful in explaining house rules and regulations. As for the scenery, it is breathtaking. The pool and music made my day. I ended my day with a superb cup of coffee. Best place to enjoy the day (or night) in Egypt. Not just in Sinai.

This place and its beautiful view was interrupted by the arrogant attitude of the manager. They forced us to pay a minimum of 200/ person before even entering the place which sounded fishy, the menu is limited to two options either fish or meat, lamb or veal. We ordered fish but the side dish was supposedly rice and I swear... More

First of all this is a place Iam visiting so I do expect to be treated respectfully and nicely. Iam not signing a business contract here! Iam entering a place to relax and give away my thoughts, so a stupid contract the obliges me to pay a certain minimum does not make sense at all to any reasonable mind !... More

Not to be missed. If you like architecture you will have a most astonishing field trip. The efforts and attention to detail made to build this castle are equivalent to the ones used in medieval times to build the most spectacular strongholds. If you like food then you will be met with some of the tastier feasts (underline feast) you... More
