“Beautifully designed and clean hotel with attentive staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2007

What struck us first about the hotel was how nicely designed and spotlessly clean everything was. You enter a very impressive reception
with Nubian style columns and a large beautifully painted mural of Nubian village life on the wall. So it comes as a suprise to learn that there are only 150 rooms. Actually I think when we were there, there were only about 30 rooms taken as the hotel had only recently opened.

The buffets offer a reasonably wide choice of foods and I enjoyed the luxury of having an omlet freshly cooked to order every morning. What I really appreciated was that, unlike some large hotels I have stayed in, here the waiters were easy to call over and were very acommodating
in bringing me all sorts of requests that you wouldn't normally expect
to find on the menu.

I read the comment about the pathways in the other review and to be honest I can't say I noticed any problems but all the flowers and shrubs were beautifully kept and the gardeners seemed to be constantly
busy looking after them.

The beach is just a two minute stroll from the hotel and while it is not ideal for swimming (theres some colourful coral which is great for
snorkelling but you have to be careful with your feet) there is a nice
sandy beach just a five minute walk further along the beach.

One of the reasons I will definitely return to this hotel is the well managed and friendly health club where I went everyday to use the gym and then have a sauna and relaxing massage. I made several friends among the staff there and they always made me feel so welcome. I also marvelled at the way they would chat to one guest one minute in one language and then to another in another. It was a great way to spend a
late afternoon after coming back from the beach.

The hotel limousine service is a little expensive but I went outside on the road and after five minutes managed to flag down a taxi van driver who took me to Marsa Alam for less than five dollars. The town is a great place to meet local people and go shopping. I must say I would never shop in a hotel!

  • Liked — staff attentiveness and cleanliness of place.
  • Disliked — expensive limousine service.

Just returned from a weeks stay at the Creative Al Nada. The hotel is brand new opening in August 2007. The hotel is about 20 minutes from Marsa Alam airport. First impressions were how remote the hotel is. Our room was big spacious and cleaned daily to a high standard. The food was a bit repetitve and there was not a lot of choice. During the day the only place you could get tea coffee any other drinks was by the pool as the hotel bar did not open till six oclock at night. No bottled water was on offer unless you bought it. The water they offered at meal times we felt was tap water chilled. We both had upset tummys for a day or so although this could have been down to several factors. There are 2 pools. The childrens pool appeared deep and there was no ladder to exit the pool. The paving around the pool area I felt was dangerous with a manhole not flush with the surface and a grid with edges raised this could potentially cause an accident if you were to trip . The pathways around the garden area are badly built with cracks forming and crumbling of the surface area. The beach is few minutes walk from hotel you could not swim in the sea as there were large rocks in the water this was dissapointing. There is plenty of building work going on at the hotel with new rooms being built. The shopping mall is opening more shops where building work can been seen and heard.
The electric went off in evening regularly while we were there which again is dangerous. This makes you wonder how the electric will cope when the hotel has full capacity.
The staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful the animation team are great and always happy and smiling they do try to make your stay comfortable. We found the communication quiet hard as some staff could not speak english. The weather was hot but found it to be windy every day a bit annoying to say the least.
The hotel being remote there was not a lot on offer unless you did the trips or paid steep taxis rip-off prices to go out of hotel.
The hotel being new needs to be fully finished and get established before we would return.

  • Liked — the room
