The hotel location is in the middle of everything. The room was clean. Relaxing atmosphere. Bakar is doing a great job. He is preparing a delicious breakfast every day. The hotel is good and not expensive but there is no pool.

Definitely would recommend this property. Delicious food and cozy atmosphere. Rooms are quite small however El Primo is completely meeting its stated hotel category. Staff is helpful, can arrange for you all sort of activities within the area or Sinai. Certainly will stay here again.

It was Very pleasant, we arrived before the check-in time by 2 Hours but as the room was already empty we have received our keys in 15 mins, it's a perfect place if you are looking for privacy and relaxation, away from all the noise, you can access the beach and All rooms has view.

When you enter El Primo, you'll see a Booking.com award at the reception area stating 8.9. That's obviously an impressive score already but I feel, I know, this place actually deserves higher - especially relative to the overall standard I've found in my two weeks travelling throughout Egypt. Its owners are an Eastern European family which is why I've found... More

The rooms are simple, not fancy at all, just basic needs, air conditioned, with no other amneties. The view is great of course. It's suitable for spending the night and getting out... More

The hotel itself very old and small... The owner was very aggressive with us.. He insisted that we reserved on booking and we kept on telling him we are not until... More
