Russian pop music sounds every day in the hotel. My requests to play other music were ignored. In the hotel, most of the tourists are Ukrainians, and also residents of Eastern European countries. I have not met Russians at the hotel during the week.

After 22 years of traveling around Europe by car, we decided to visit Egypt mainly for diving. Fantazia resort beautifully equipped, rooms clean with sea views (Deluxe rooms), pools also clean, nice staff. Unfortunately, an unpleasant event happened to us on the first night. Our daughter stumbled and fell through the glass panel of the balcony door. Thus ended our euphoria from the beautiful holiday and worries began. The daughter had cuts all over her body, especially on her forehead and shoulder. Our daughter was taken in by the local doctor of the resort, Dr. Kiro, who treated all the cuts (58 stitches) and took perfect care of her throughout our stay. He provided us with all the medicines, even above-standard medicines, and we went to see him daily for check-ups. His work was also appreciated by doctors in the Czech Republic. We would like to thank him and all the staff who came out to meet us. We hope that in the future we will visit Egypt and enjoy the stay without complications.

We were not in Egypt for the first time, but I wanted to visit this hotel for a long time. Another beautiful large part of the resort has been completed and we really liked the DELUXE part. The large resort offers many services, excursions, experiences, sports activities and of course snorkeling in the sea. Accommodation, food, drinks - to be honest. We have nothing to complain about. We came to enjoy the beautiful environment and especially the weather. We had a more active holiday, because we liked to go to the programs of a great and friendly animation team. We tried almost all the activities the team had - stretching, aqua gym, dancing, volleyball, water polo, belly dancing, yoga and more. It was a pleasant diversion every day and there was no time to get bored even after 15 days. The whole staff - gardeners, cooks, cleaners, bartenders, animators worked hard there xxx hours every day. Even so, they were kind and smiling all the time. Thanks for that :)

Visited the hotel for one week on May 2021. Despite the location is just in the midst of the desert, the territory is fully greened with beautiful trees, flowers and grass. You feel like in paradise garden and all you need is here. Two really big pools able to accommodate all the vacationists and surrounded by sun loungers and umbrellas. Also several pool parties took place during our vacation. Nice rooms with conditioner TV and all necessary bathroom accessories. Very polite personnel always willing to help. Fantastic food provided by kitchen staff with their extravagant chef who looks like natural Italian. Many activities given by animators are really good for those ho can't just lie in the sun. And the best is the seashore where even after ten steps in the water you can see all the greatness of Red sea with unbelievable diversity of sea inhabitants. Take your chance to go behind the reef edge - you'll be really impressed with something unseen before!!! And at the end want to express my gratitude to the staff of Vivasub Diving Center - Marsa Alam, located between entrance hall and foodcourts of the hotel, for their efforts to make our excursions to the turtle bay and dolphin house as the best time spent in Egypt!!!

At the beginning i would say, we are not type of tourists, using resorts like this. Usually we travel on our own, we want to get to know the local culture, food and meet the local people. But after 15 years of travelling on our own, we decided to go once to a place with a travel agency, where everything will be arranged from A to Z. And probably we won´t do it again another 15 years :-D Where to start - Fantazia hotel is beautiful place, pools are clean and staff of the resort are very friendly, helpful and still smiling. To be honest - this was the best of our vacation - even though the staff worked all day without a break at a bar or restaurant, they smiled and were very pleasant. Thank you fort this. Our room was beautiful (we paid for Deluxe room), but we paid for the room with sea view - the sea really could not be seen from the room. We had room 5101, we asked at reception first, then we asked our travel agency delegate and reception again, but they said repeatedly (2 days) that they had no other rooms available and that we should come and ask the next day. That was weird, because the resort really was not filled with guests. I estimate the occupancy rate of 40%. We didn't want to deal with it anymore on the 3rd day, so we let it be. Due to the hotel's vacancy, the services offered for the Deluxe package also do not work. For example, a dining room by the pool and an a´la carte restaurant. This is probably something that needs to be addressed with a travel agent who offers it, not with a hotel. Beach is nice and clean, there was no problem to find sunbeds. I did´t like the entrance to the sea that much. There are 2 lagoons, where you can swim, snorkel or just relax (but be sure, you have shoes, because there´s a lot of marine wildlife). Other option is to go swim and snorkel from pier. On both places were lifeguards. The coral and reef is awesome, but due to the number of people and the constant admonition by the lifeguard on the pier, one cannot swim wherever he wants - behind a white buoy, where the sea is much clearer and much more to see. We were quite bothered by the hotel staff, who constantly came up with offers of other paid services. Sure, I understand it's their job to offer massages and dolphin trips, but the reality was completely different in the end. We paid $ 100 for 3 massages, the man who offered us massages showed us on the card with about 10 types of massages that we can choose from. But the reality was that when we asked for a specific type of massage (we wanted a health and aroma massage), the girl who massaged us absolutely did not understand us, so all 3 massages were the same and to be honest quite paintfull, so I decided not to go for the 3rd one.¨ We rate the food offer as the weakest. The food was served by the staff, which we would not mind. All the staff were very nice. But the quality of the food was not what we expected. Apparently the clientele of the hotel has changed - instead of Italians and tourists from the west, the hotel was full of Czechs, Ukrainians and Poles, for whom this type of catering is probably sufficient. The food was still the same, we had trouble choosing. There was always something extra in the evening, which we were happy for. I try to live ecologically. I don't like waste, so I didn't really mind that breakfast ingredients that didn't eat were then offered on the beach at the bar or as pizza ingredients, but I was a little upset that they were made into salads for dinner. After all, who would want a salad with sausages that were for breakfast. At the sweet bar for lunch and dinner, the best were about 4 types of Egyptian sweets, which were served on the far right. Otherwise there were extremely colorful sponge cakes that all tasted the same. Drinks were served on the beach and in the restaurant in disposable plastic cups (except for wine). To be honest, I would pay without any problem much more for the vacation if the food would be on higher standart. To sum it up, this hotel has much more potential, great staff, beautiful surroundings, but the food and drinks at the bar were not very good. For example, we would welcome ice cream, better serving of drinks - less extremely sweet drinks and a little bit of creativity at lunch and dinner.

Dear our Guest We appreciate your feedback that helps us keeping our service as your expectations, improving it more and more. About the room, all the deluxe area has a sea view, your room is side sea view but for sure you can enjoy the view of the sea and if we had any availability to change it, for sure we would do. Also the a la cart restaurant, it is arranged by the hotel reception or the main restaurant if you want a reservation anytime. finally, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation and really hope to see you again Fantazia team
