Overall nice hotel but we felt not so much the extraordinary touch as mentioned by other recensions: +++ sandy beach right in front of hotel with crystal clear water. Enough sun beds. +++ Architectonically nice hotel settings. Clean and well maintained. ++ friendly and competent staff + good food. Only one buffet restaurant, one other restaurant can be used at extra charge and without children. +/- at our travel time many other Arabic big families as guests, was difficult to get to know to other travelers - Only with breakfast or half board. Water at dinner to pay for. - limited sports program. Tennis, surf, yoga to pay for. It is not a club.

automatically one of the top 5 best hotels i’ve ever been to, to excellent food( gluten free options) (various culture choices ) , beautiful landscape and the friendliest staff everything is so good. often i’d get skeptical if an hotel’s majority of reviews are only positive but Kempinski deserves every good review 100% not only the branches in soma bay but also the one in Talaat harb (not sure if kempinski royal maxim is under the same supervision or not ) otherwise everything is amazing and highly worth a visit.
