Unfortunately the hotel is a bit too quiet at the moment; given the general situation in the middle east there are very little visitors in Egypt at the moment. It's a shame as we felt very safe in this well secured area (the hotel, village and airport are all privately owned), all at a whopping 600 kilometers south of Cairo... More

This is a luxurious hotel in a very peaceful location on the fascinating beach of the Red Sea. The staff are friendly, the room service staff are cooperative, the chef is responsive to special requests. The Palace residents may roam around the other hotels in the area to enjoy the entertainment presented there. A real vacation place
