We used the hotel as a base for our diving with Emperor Divers. The hotel was quiet due to the continued belief that Egypt is unsafe - which is a shame as people are mission out. The hotel staff were very friendly and the hotel is a typical Egyptian Resort hotel The international buffet was as expected but nothing special... More

The hotel is nicely designed, rooms are decorated very nice, personnel is very kind, make effort to serve you well and work extremely hard. Pools are good and the reef is supreme; each day we saw something special (ie dolphins, turtles, murene)

We visited the hotel in August 2016, there was not many tourists due to the previous circumstances in Egypt. However it was a nice hotel, I would not recommend to visit the Spa at the Palace hotel. It looks like a backyard spa, not very professional for a hotel that looks so nice. That was very unfortunate

A perfect location for relaxing, with lots to do. In case you get bored, there is a super animation team that gets you moving - every day there is something new like evening shows, water gym, beach party, sports activities and what not. I love it because they are very talkative and also give you lots of information about Egypt,... More

Been there for 10 days. Great hotel: friendly staff, animation team was very nice, food is OK, fantastic coral reefs for snorkeling. Hotel is located on the first line in front of see. There is also few big pools, 3 tennis courts, billiard, ping pong. So you can't get bored.
