Nice to know :
- WiFi is wonky, excruciatingly slow and sometimes just not working. Reception gives you a login when checking in. You can request a new login when you've reached the bandwidth limit, which in my case was more than daily. Apparently there is fast WiFi if you pay extra.
- TV channels with bad reception (snow, stripes, etc)
- Personnel is friendly and helpful, but hardly speaks more than 2 words English, German, French, Russian, Italian, Polish and Dutch
- Standard rooms have 2 separate beds - if you want your partner closer at night, ask to change to a room with double bed
- Ecology is but a printed word, since clean towels are provided every day, although we hung our towels on the rail so as to make clear that we'd use them again
- The airco on the older building makes quite a noise from 7AM till 10PM.
-The pool area at the sea side can be windy and even cold in winter. Behind the main building there is a small pool with a nice view on the desert. Less wind there and the pool boys cater here too. Popular with children, so it can get noisy
-The rocky beach in front of the hotel is not used, but the beach behind the panoramic restaurant is very nice, though windy too. Get there in time if you want a sunbed. These are not very well suited for reading though.
- The Neckerman guy is to be avoided
- Every day a sales crew scouts for the new arrivals to sell massage, manicure, diving, quad rides, trips on a camel, horseriding, etc. They can be persistent.
- The 2 female Egyptian masseuses, hidden away underneath the hotel, are highly recommended. If you like a strong massage, you are in for a treat.
- Try the facial treatment too. Hair is removed with a thread which is not a pleasant experience but the soothing masks of different substances makes you forget fast.
-If you fly into Hurghada, be aware that the transfer to Marsa Alam takes between 2,5 to 4 hours depending on the type of car. Double check your online booking, because this transfer time is not mentioned on the documents or by the Neckerman representative at Hurghada or by the taxi driver. We found out the hard way: a roadsign 'Marsa Alam 234km'. Our state of mind when we finally arrived at the hotel was not particularly 'eased' by hotel staff, though Fara did her best, and by Neckerman.
All in all : a mediocre hotel in the middle of nowhere.
