“An odd sort of place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

When you think of Egypt your attention swings to the Pyramids, the Sphinx, the Valley of the Kings. The Menaville resort is for the alternate mindset that thinks of just sitting on the beach for two weeks.

As the review says, it's an odd sort of place, the hotel is fine the beaches are decent and there is a very nice tiny chunk of coral reef just of the beach, which you can snorkel over and see quite a few fish. Nonetheless, the main memory will be of folks shovelling food down themselves at breakfast, lunch and tea amidst barbecuing themselves under the Red Sea sun, whilst the Pyramids remain odd triangular things somewhat akin to the chocolates being gorged. If you want to gormandise yourself into cardiac arrest this is the place for you!!!

The place itself, somewhat aside from parts of its clientele is decent, though there are a vfew issues with air conditioning not working and pretty impressive insects entering rooms - though the grounds seem to be routinely gassed each day at about 17:00 there are some hardy survivors wishing to make your acquaintance.

As I said, its a decent place, with decent enough food and facilities, but if you believe Egypt to be the Land of the Pharoahs and 5000 years of culture and history you might just wonder what Rameses II would make of it and its inhabitants? Shashlick anyone ???

this is my second review about menaville safaga and i felt the need to write it because i had the best vacation this year there. The friendliness and excellent service from the staff haven't changed a bit from the last time i've been there. The beach was amazingly clean and everything from the towels to the beach bar to the snorkling was perfect. the room was modernly furnished and had everything we needed, Food is very good value for the money spent. like everytime the children had fun in the kids club and i had time to relax in the spa as it kept them busy all day! definitely going there again next year!

Menaville is one of my preferred hotels in the red sea, the sea is amazing with very nice long sandy beach, so many activities could be done, very nice animation team, so many water activities are available (kite surfing, diving and snorkeling), the pool also is nice, rooms are clean (try to get a renovated room, old rooms are not good), the best are overlooking the pool, rooms are clean, housekeeping team is so helpful.
The Breakfast is ok, dinner is average but it’s acceptable if you are looking for light lunch like me, restaurant service is also nice, if you are looking for a relaxing vacation I recommend menaville for you.

Room Tip: Renovated rooms which overlooking the pool.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. The only reason to visit this area is to visit the Red Sea. There is very little else to do near the resort and it is quite a distance from the town of Safaga. This hotel is a series of low rise building s spread across a wide area. There are plenty of activities for children. There are also several restaurants on site but when we visited some werenot working more than likely due to the lack of tourists in Egypt. We ate in both the a la carte and the Italian which were both very good.

I visited the resort many times before with my family. The service is perfect as usual; the rooms are clean and tidy. Gardens are everywhere with palm trees. The stuff very good specially animation team. They have good daily animations shows for guests .. In the morning at the swimming pool and the beach and they also make shows for the children. My kids had a lot of fun at kids club; it is a nice place for children to play, draw and coloring lessons.
See you soon………..
