The hotel is nice, nice pools, quiet location but... It took more than an hour to check-in in a chaotic drama where nobody seemed to know what, how or who to register. After checkin-in was finally finished we had to wait for almost two hours until the rooms were ready and we finally could begin our stay. The personnel was...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed July 1, 2016 via mobile

This place has it all! Great adults only pool. Good service by the pool. Great snorkeling right off the pier in front of the property. Really good buffet, and cheap. The grounds are pretty expansive, but immaculately kept. You can see Egpyt, Israel and Saudi Arabia all from this place. I love the red sea and hope to return to...

The positive: Nice pools and beach, nice location The negative: Check-in was like a turkish market with a 30 minute wait in line Our rooms were not ready and only after babysitting and bugging them we received rooms after 16:30 The rooms are spacey but in bad condition, the furniture is stained, most of the electrical plugs dont work, TV...

This hotel is far from being 5 star. I had to wait 3 hours to get my room while other guests who arrived after me checked in immediately. I wasnt even offered the welcome drink that was supposed to be included in my booking. The minibar bar in my room consisted of 2 cans of diet pepsi and diet 7up....

At first everything looks good - but the misery starts already at check-in, where the confused personel takes forever to check you into the hotel. Then you soon discover that the resort is filled with drunk Russians. The pools are filled with alge - and very cold. There is probably not one "not broken" sun bed to find - and...

Your first impression is that this is a nice hotel. But you soon realise that it is far from the five star hotel it still pretends to be. Two stars would be more realistic - on a good day! It is run down, poorly managed and all in all a horrible place. The poor employees struggle but seem to have...

This hotel is not 5 star at all. Everything is broken, dont working or they even dont try to fix it. Our tv didnt work for 7 days even that I called the reception 7 times. They dont care about their guest at all and only think about the money. They are making problems all the time. DONT GO THERE

We spent 2 nights at the Grand Swiss Belresort at the end of a great 10 days trip in Jordan. This hotel was the only 5 stars rated hotel of our trip and ironically the worst. Rooms are dirty, bathroom disgusting and are not even cleaned daily. No coffee facilities in the room either. The room lock was broken, and...

We were warmly welcomed in the middle of the night and received a delicious food package. Room was ok, but not as it supposed to be. Breakfast was horrible: empty plates, not clean, poor choice and very long waiting line for eggs. Next to that the staff wasn't friendly. At the beach/pool weren't any beds available and not willing to...
