My husband and I stayed in this hotel during our one-week diving holiday in mid-November. We had all-inclusive package which was good value for money.
Rooms: Simple, but nice and clean. The only complaint I have is that the internet connection is slow on best days and non-existence on others.
Food: If you are a diver, half board might be a good option. Lunch is available on diving boats, and it is simple, but very nice as well as affordable (6 euros for lunch and unlimited soft drinks). On the other hand, it is nice to have breakfast and dinner at the hotel before and after a long day of diving.
The food at the hotel was good for the money we paid for it. That said, it was not bad, but not especially good either. They had a lot of choices, but most of them were Italian style food that did not quite hit the spot. As others have already mentioned, the customer base of this hotel is mostly Italians. I guess this is why they go for Italian food. But I do not know if their Italian customers enjoy it either, as everything sort of resembles Italian food yet does not really come up to the standards.
Breakfast was always delicious, though: lots of choices, numerous types of bread, cooked to order omelets, pancakes, etc.
Our package also included (local) drinks, but soft drinks and beer were really the only drinkable choices. Wine was merely awful (I am not very picky, but they should not even call it wine). Rum, whiskey, vodka, etc. were tolerable only as long drinks.
Activities: I do not have much to say about these except for diving. We came to dive and that is what we did. So even though the hotel provides other activities we did not have time to try any of them. Emperor divers have their dive center right at the hotel. We really enjoyed diving with them. Everything and everybody was professional yet relaxed. On some days, we went for boat dives (Elpinstone strongly recommended!). But there is a lot to see on the house reef as well.
It is also worth mentioning that there are a few small shops in the hotel area: a spice shop, a jewelry shop and a couple of shops selling snacks and beachwear, etc. But if you want to do some more shopping you have to arrange transportation to Marsa Alam. This should not be a problem though since the staff at Concorde are very friendly and helpful.
