“Good place for family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

The place has a good night life and a variety of restaurants. The beach is on other side of the road and it is a long walk to there through a bridge above the road. Had a lake view room, which is the worst view ever. It is not a lake it is just a narrow canal

We had a very bad experience while staying during 2nd weekend in november 2012 and the hotel is very poor compared to other hotels in sokhna for the following reasons:
Front desk aren't professional at all.
Rooms aren't clean.
Toilets are too small.
Beach is too small
Animation team sucks
Too expensive compared to the value of service offered.
Finally, i dont recommend it for any one to try.

We many times. The sea view is very nice. However, the beach needs a lot of work to be better.
There are a variety of restaurants of Amer group that present different types of food.
I liked the place and intend to go again

It was a couple of days in the hotel's suites and i suffered in the the reserving timings and location.
Maybe its the usual local egyptian miss management in jammy periods but that turned me off.
Cant deny the lovely view or the perfect landscape, its just relaxing especially after a stressy week.

I've gone to Porto Sokna for a 3 days vacation ( More than 3 days is totally nonsense doesn't deserve more than that ) , here are the Pron & Cons for the place :
Pron:
1-Modernized Property
2-Quite place during non-seasons
3-All available entertainment facilities are available
4-Good Service from Reception & House Keeping Staff ( Upgraded us to sea view without fees)
5-Room facilities are great & the rooms are modern
6-Perfect electricity control ( as the electricity increase gradually not one time ! )-healthy environment
7-Cleanliness is good , not perfect but good.
8-Wide variety of TV Channels which isn't available in most hotel ( JSC Sport channels
9-Rooms are big enough


Cons :
1-Decoration of the rooms isn't matching .
2-Bathrooms need to be a little bit cleaner
3-Beach isn't big enough ,especially during seasons where lots of people are on the beach
4-Pools aren't heated & not cleaned
5-Main Restaurant ( Sea Breeze ) doesn't provide wide variety , food isn't that good as well ( cold,no taste ) especially the desert has nothing deserves to be tasted
6-Restaurant service isn't satisfactory , neither the waiters ,captains nor the managers as well ( when signing the check they gave me the check in the check pocket where people have written their names & slogans!!!!! what hotel gives to his guest such service..i commented on this & hope they solve it ! )
7-Not enough elevators & connection between the rooms & the reception need to walk a bit.
8-Prices for the activities on the beach is quite expensive
( 80 LE/person for the banana boat 10 mins-Jet Ski 150 LE for 30 mins )
9-Water for showers in the room aren't heated .

I see that the place in overall is good , but there are small stuff if it could be fixed i believe that the hotel will be great , heard as well that there are 2 new hotels will be opening up . AMER Group are doing a great job as well on a couple of projects behind Porto sokna , people behind the towers of Porto there's another life being built ! Well done AMER but keep it up but need to enhance Porto Sokna Hotel ! ... Good for a couple of days vacation no more !

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view is great!! try to get on of those

Ein El sokhna is a warm nice place usually better in winter. I went there last winter, and the strange thing is that they deceive you saying : "we have HEATED POOLS". THIS IS A LIE. when I arrived there they told me that yes we have it but it is not working now !!!! so when it is supposed to work then ?!!!!
FOOD IS COLD. I have not seen any kind of fish dishes except once during my 5 day stay (ein el sokhna and suez have the best fishes in the region).

it is kinda motel and nothing better. staff is rude and stupid.

once, my wife asked for a glass to drink water while we were in the restaurant, the smart staff member told her that they ran out of glasses, "I can bring you a cup instead .... or if u can wait minutes, I can look for a glass in one of the room" he said !!!!
Impressive ......right?!!

Room Tip: do yourself a favour DO NOT GO THERE AT ALL stella de marie is great
