We came back home after a holiday in Aurora Bay resort just some days before this horrible unbelievable catastrophe. It's extremely difficult to write a review from a country which is at war now.... But somehow I joined all my internal reserves and do hope that it may be helpful for someone to read it.The main thing to be told is the priorities I pay attention to once choosing the hotel. And in my case it's the sea and sea world. Being a Marsa Alam lover, I have already visited some other hotels and places, so I can compare.SERVICE and accommodation. Well, what I can tell. Can be better, for sure. At least some renovation is more than welcome. Some stories with the rooms changing, not working taps and so on. But all in all, don't forget that you are in Egypt and the amount of money you spent for the trip, so. As a result, we had a great room (actually, we are coming to Egypt because of the sea and not because of the nice room), no problems with cleaning or serving in the restaurants. Even without tips. Smile! And you will receive a smile in response! As well as a really nice holiday and time. FOOD. Can be better, for sure. But you are in Egypt, and you know pretty well the price of your tour. So, what else do you want? There are no Michelin star restaurants in the hotel and area. But it will be extremely difficult to stay hungry. Wine is not drinkable. But all in all, we were absolutely happy with the food. So, no compliment in general. Swimming pools and animation. They are not the heroes of my novel since I'm not using swimming pools and don't need animation at all. But my 16-years daughter was happy with the animation. Actually, it looks like a nice team.  Weather in February. I was in Egypt in December and January. Now, also in February. And I like it very very much in February! Yes, it's not the Egypt we know with always hot weather, really warm nights and bathroom temperature water. But having winter in Europe and staying a couple of months in dark cold rainy weather, February sun rays in Egypt are vital, very pleasant and extremely nice. It's possible to swim in the sea as well, but wetsuit is highly recommended.And diving is still pleasant and comfortable. I also highly recommend dive club DUCK SUPERIOR. All in all, I like the holiday in February very much and would be happy to come to Egypt in February 2023 too. Yes, it's a bit different than in summer. For sure it's better to come to Egypt min twice a year. But Egypt in winter has its sharm for sure. SEA. Actually, the main, the first priority. GREAT, FANTASTIC, WONDERFULL.... One of the best in Egypt. You have plenty of choices and directions to swim to. I will not go into the details to explain what species you can see here, no sense. It's also hard to compare, for example, Wady Lahmy, Shams Alam, Brayka Bay, Marsa Mubarak... All of them are unique and nice places. What is clear without any doubt is that AURORA BAY deserves to be and is among the best places in the region.  If you are a diver, I highly recommend diving in this bay, both North and South. FANTASTIC! If you are not a diver, I highly recommend you to start. It's a good time and opportunity to do it here in Aurora together with DUCK SUPERIOR. Conclusion.Holiday of the top rate. Loved every moment of it! Will keep nice memories for ages. Thank you very much, Egypt, Red Sea, Aurora Bay team and DUCK SUPERIOR.  Hope, I will be able to repeat. One day, when the war is over...

I was with my family in Aurora. The best on the whole holiday were the Animators. We were on the move all day. Stretching, dancing, yoga, volleyball. An amazing evening show led by Chica. We will never forget and thank you very much for a great holiday

Service wasn't always nice - tip demanding, noisy, not much attention paid to guests. Food ok if you know what to choose (pizza, kebab, grill dishes), however breakfast is always the same. Poor drinks - small cups, drink poured restlessly and limited - only 2 small cups per guest at a time (approx. 150ml, not more). Beautiful coral reef and fish. Loud animations (mind if you want to sleep during their time). Only one, the smalllest, pool has heated water.

Really good value and excellent service. I was at this resort for only three nights and I would have happily stayed longer if I could. The food was great with a good selection at the buffet. No complaints about the room and the bed was super comfortable. Service from the staff was first rate and they were very attentive and made sure I enjoyed my stay. My only gripe was the very expensive internet charges and the very poor internet signal. I apologize for complaining to the staff about this. I have traveled all over the world and had never seen such poor internet service. After further study I think acquiring an internet service is difficult in this part of Egypt. Probably not that important if you are on holiday but for business it is. Other than the internet issue which you remedy by purchasing a SIM card with a lot of data, the hotel has a lot of excellent qualities and I will be happy to stay there again. Just remember to get a SIM card!

Let's start with restaurant -very good food and service. cleaning every day, the rooms have a refrigerator, every day they brought water and even fruit. the beach is just wonderful, the staff on the beach are friendly, they always helped with sun loungers. the animation is friendly.

Resort located near beautiful bay for snorkeling and diving. Spacious rooms. Multiple swimming pools. The food is not great. Best take the freshly prepared pasta. Don’t forget to try the Cleopatra Welness Centre above Hillview restaurant. It is heaven! At least 7 different massages and hammam, pedicure, manicure and barber for a reasonable price. The sweet and professional people working there helped me get rid of my muscle problems. The gym has the best view of a beautiful sunset.
