Lovely chatty owner Ibrahim who is very helpful with sorting out transfers to beaches and boat trips and recommendations on places to eat. Guest house was clean and comfortable, well working air conditioning, lots of Mosquitos but not a problem where they were provided. Common room was nice and cool to relax in also. Wifi available in the common room.... More

We stayed for 5 nights and really enjoyed our time here. The rooms were clean, the shower was hot and the common area was very comfortable. There is a nice kitchen to cook in but we mostly ordered delivery from great local restaurants. There is beer and water for sale here as well. If I return to Marsa Alam in... More

The super friendly owner makes it a comfortable and relaxing environment. Spacious, well maintained, very clean rooms with balconies add to the great value of this place. You can have food and just about anything else delivered, or you can walk into town for a meal. Diving or other excursions can be arranged with zero hassle or up selling. We... More

Most of the reviewers speak about the owner, Ibrahim, and his open, friendly personality and willingness to share advice. I fully agree and if my review of lodging was based purely on kindness and friendliness, then Rihana would get high marks. However I feel that visitors should know what to expect when they come to Marsa Alam and to this... More

At first glance Marsa Alam might seem deserted and abandoned. Rhianna offers a comfortable guesthouse that is warm and hospitable. Ibrahim more than makes up for the strange first impressions of Marsa Alam with his knowledge and personalized service. Marsa Alam will grow on most with its quiet laidback vibe and it's beautiful coast that has rugged mountains as its... More

When I arrived at Rihana after a three and a half hour drive from Aswan, Ibrahim the owner told me that my reservation had been cancelled. It turns out that he was not able to accommodate me for the full four days I had reserved and cancelled the booking soon after I had made it. Note: I had received the... More

There are few places in Marsa Alam to stay outside of mega-resorts, but Rihana has everything the independent traveler is looking for. The rooms are clean, big, and comfortable, bathroom/shower ensuite with hot water. The atmosphere is similar to a hostel - there is a common room where breakfast is served; a kitchen and sitting/TV area is available here as... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rihana Guest House is nestled 100 meters from the beach, with a full ocean view Air-conditioned 5 double bed rooms, with private baths and balconies. We are located 45 minutes from Marsa Alam International airport, and 3 hours from Hurghada one. For divers, snorkelers and beach lovers, the property lies midway from the most famous bays on the coast. Within minutes you will be in Egla, Asalaya, and Samadai bays, where pristine crystal waters exist, and diving & snorkeling are at their best. We are not an all inclusive resort; in fact we are totally the opposite. Our guests can enjoy walking to the town, where they can eat at local restaurants, chill at cafes, or even cook at home. You can Enjoy chilling at the main lounge, get to know new people, and share experiences. In other words, we are the epitome of the small, intimate guest house, in a traditional style where you feel home. We will help you organize all your diving packages with our Diving partners, airport transfers, and all other activities you can think of. ... more   less
