    The hotel is located very close to the airport, which makes the transfer very fast. Large rooms, fully equipped, cleaned every day, water refilled, slightly worn by time. Cool animations, there is something for everyone. Conducted in several languages. New and cool water park. Close to the sea and coral reef. The food is good, I think everyone will find something for themselves I recommend this place 😊

Paradise in Marsa Alaam

This was the first time my wife and I stayed at this lovely hotel and it was without doubt just as brilliant as the previous occasions. This really is home away from home for us and provides complete relaxation as soon as we arrive. If you are looking for nightlife, perhaps this is not the place for you, this hotel and the region are all about relaxation. Port Ghaleb is probably one of a small handful of place that still retains that true warm Egyptian feel.
We stayed in an amazing suit very nicely decorated, have lovely bathrooms as well as a large balcony with comfortable loungers and lovely living room.

The food is great with the main restaurant overlooking beautiful Friendship Sea - nothing like sitting with your morning coffee, listening to the sound of the waves.
All the staff are friendly and extremely helpful and really make this hotel a special place. I cannot praise Mohamed ( at front desk) enough. Not only is he knowledgeable and always there to help with any arrangements, he handled with resourcefulness and quick actions. In addition, I would like to mention Hany Salama at the main restaurant for his kindness and good supervision of the staff. Unfortunately, we will check out tomorrow.
We are now counting the days to our next visit.

Dr Amr Elsayed and Dr Amal Elgebeily.

Beautiful Weekend
Dec 2022 • Family
We spent a beautiful time over the past weekend. The most thing that I like about The Palace Port Ghalib is the staff. Every single one we have met during the holiday from the check in to the check out was very friendly and hospitable. Special thanks to Mr Mohamed Kamal, chef Zain and chef Abdo on the omelet station, and chef Nagwa on Alfredo restaurant pasta station. She made amazing pasta that my kids loved it.

The hotel itself is very well maintained. We did not swim in the sea. But we enjoyed the heated swimming pool. Animation team is nice and not pushy. Our room 6330 had a beautiful sea view. Daytime ice cream at the pool bar was delicious

We highly recommend this hotel.

Disappointed
Dec 2019 • Family
The staff at the Lagoon restaurant were rude and unserviceminded. Their breakfast was terrible. Birds picking in the bread and tasteless. The juice included was lemonade with arificial colour.They knew it and therefor they sold juice instead. The wine included have not ever been close to a grape. Alcohol, water and colour added. Nobody could drink their wine.They sold wine as well...overpriced with with very low quality.

We went to the beautysaloon. They are unprofessional. They gave us ridiculos haircuts and a manicure which my daughter nine years old could do better.
Worst of all. They told me to close my eyes and relax...when I opened my eyes I had permanent black thick eyebrows made from henna. Im blonde so I looked like a clown. As I reacted they tried to bleach them and they turned GREEN. They hurt me a lot bleached and bleached. The colour wasnt so bad after lots of pain. But the way they treated me, threatful and nasty. It hurt for several days afterwards and it was impossible to be in the sun. It was very difficult to communicate with the staff in the beautysaloon although I speak both german and english.

Do not visit, terrible!
Don’t go here!
I want to start by saying that we are relaxed people. We had high hopes for the spa and restaurant. We did not stay in this hotel however booking a spa treatment were not a problem via phone at least.. When we arrivied in the spa the feeling was very stressed, not calm and peaceful more like a machinery. We hade to wait a bit because they were late which is fine however they cut everything short! Instead of 1h couples massage + following face mask treatment we had 35 min massage and no face mask(!) I asked why but they just shook their heads. During the massage the therapists were constantly talking to each other and it seemed like my partners masseuse gave my masseuse instructions on how to massage whilst massaging!
My partner were luckier and received a nice massage, mine however was terrible. She was clearly not a massage terapist and it seems like she was new to all of this.

We decided to give the restaurant a go but that was a mistake.. we got treated rather rude and the food was not what you would hope for 5 stars. We payed €30 each and extra for drinks even thought they said it was included. They also added service charge on 12.5%. Really bad experience. We payed cause I just wanted to get out of there.

One plus though, we shared a bottle of sparkling in the bar and the bartender was very nice and it was a cozy spot.

Pick Albatros ? Never ever again!
Aug 2022
This used to be a very good hotel until it was taken over by the current owner.

Far too many guests, worn down exteriors, especially in the pool area, dramatically understaffed and absolutely no service mindedness. Nothing in common with a 5 star address, simply put.

Instead of organzing a kindly requested late check out, which would have been easily feasible since there were room availabilities throughout our stay, a rather unfriendly receptionist suggested to add another night instead (not that the checkout would have been for free).

When I eventually did this and told them I would share our experience with the web community, things really went southways. Hotel staff madly knocked at our door, depsite the fact that our do not disturb sign was out (an absolute no-go) and kept on calling us (we counted 15 attempts, some of them late in the evening)

But things got even worse: After check-out the front office manager stood in our path when we were trying to leave the hotel, almost threatening us. He insisted to keep us there in order to talk to their general manager whereas I had told him several times before I did not want to hear anything more from them regarding the mess they had put us in. It was only after I asked him if their place was a hotel or a prison that he stepped out of our way. Simply unbelievable and totally unacceptable! Such people should better be put out of business.

In an nutshell, nothing but a real nightmare, not at all what egyptian hospitality stands for. In my 50+ stays on the Red Sea I have never seen anything alike.,

Very nice hotel. Kept extremely clean. Nice helpful staff. Karma our room boy kept the room very clean.
I wish the hotel would up hold their dress code for the restaurant. But a small point.
We will return.
