“Wonderful bay, food so-so”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Returned after 2 years, the location is still amazing and so are staff and structure. Shame is that food that used to be very good was now just about edible. It's clientele is now mainly east european.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We stayed in this hotel more than a week . We came in here with worries concerrnig the service
in hotel. I must say we were wrong.

I was ca. 8 times in Egypt, this hotel is better average. But what I can say- I HAVE NEVER MET SUCH POLITE, FRIENDLY, WONDERFUL AND PROFESSIONAL STAFF IN EGYPT BEFORE- all levels ( cleaning, beach, restaurant).
Rooms are clean, garden and beach,too.

The bay is wonderful with corals on both sides and turtles in central part. As if this is windy place,
there are also waves, but on left side of bay is snorchling possible any time.

One negative experience is an organization in the restaurant in time of diner. The restaurant
is crowded and everybody must stay in long line and waiting to take turn ( a bit dehonesting...)
It could help to arrange the food on both sides of dining room not only on one side!

But as a whole we were very satisfied, I can recommend this hotel and probably we´ll come
back here in October.

Last week we have stayed in Malikia for a X-mas holiday. We loved the location of the hotel, snorkeling with turtles in the bay just in front of the hotel, great animation team and friendly staff. Our special thanks to Mohamed Ahmed 'Memo' from the lobby bar for excellent service and coctails he made for us every day!

We loved this holiday. The employees, especially of the restaurant, made this holiday to a very special one. They were always helpful, friendly and gave us the feeling to be friends and not only guests. Special thanks we want to give to Mr. Mowead who provided us nearly every evening with nice coctails for the dinner and for our room we received from him wine in water bottles. This was a really nice service.
We enjoyed of course also the beach which was always very clean. The employees take care of the reef so that everybody is able to enjoy the reef with its fishes, turtles....
Unfortunately we had not the opportunity to see the dugong. Nevertheless the sea offers a lot of amazing surprises while snorkeling. Thank you to everybody working in the hotel. We are sure to come back again.
