We stayed 5 nights in this resort. Rooms were clean, service was great for the price. Seems to be a popular destination for Russian tourists, which was cool as there were all ages and an interesting mix. I have no complaints about the hotel itself. The pool area is immaculate. We wanted to do some diving while we were here,... More

Staff not friendly at all, they are not even professional. Refrigerator wasn't working. The room door lock wasn't functioning well. I had to do 2 escalations in my first day to the General Manager. I'm frustrated to the degree that I'm thinking about reaching the hotel owner. I'm feeling terrible, as I have to stay there for one more day.

It was our 2nd trip to Egypt and again we decided to go to Marsa-el-Alam. The Elphistone resort is a good place to stay. The rooms are clean and quite spacious, yet the bathrooms and some of the furniture spoils the good impression. The hotel should definitely renovate the bathrooms. The swimming pool area is vast and really nice. Pool... More
