“Beautiful area that isn't quite finished yet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Port Ghalib has so much potential. According to some people I talked to who lives and works there the area isn't finished, but plans for another 4 hotels and larger shopping areas etc area are planned for the future.
The area is however sufficient as an experience in its own, small, clean and beautiful. You'll find free wi-fi at TGI Friday's and other places.

“A great Seaside Development with a brilliant future”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I have very high respect for the developers who have had the long term vision and the will to invest upfront in this resort development. The infrastructure is done top notch with a future conscious thinking and the location, the beaches, the Marina, the apartments and the hotels are very well done.
With the airport minutes away I believe this place will prosper even futher.
Highly recommend a visit, rent a marina apartment, or park and stay on your boat or if service is what you are after stay at the Crown Plaza or Intercontinental Palace.

“Cosmopolitan area with shops, restaurants, and attractions.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Nice place to relax and enjoy the sea. Nice shops (but expensive) with mid quality souvenirs and pleasant shopkeepers.

“Tranquil”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

A very quiet area with hardly anybody about. I felt sorry for all the shops that were constantly open but with no customers to serve
