Oriental Bay Hotel Marsa Alam

This hotel is new for first choice this winter and i was wondering if anyone had heard of it. I cant find any more info on it and wondered if it had been under another name. Thinking of going in Nov. Any help would be gratefully received. Thank you.

There are good reviews for it on here. I've not heard if it, but at least it's been built!

They are not the same ! The Sentido Oriental is located about mid-way between Port Ghalib and El Quseir while the Oriental Bay is as new hotel that opened last year in November and is located near Marsa Alam towm. Here are a couple of reviews in german on Holidaycheck : http://www.holidaycheck.com/hotel-reviews_Hotel+Oriental+Bay-ch_hb-hid_238254.html

(the review in english is in the wrong place)

Let me know how you get on as I am thinking about going in May next year. My favourite is Tulip that I have been to 4 times and 3 Corners is good too. I am unable to get to the Tulip as Thomas Cook think it is hilarious to either cancel or move the flights to another airport. This year they cancelled it so we are looking at others. Let me know and have a good time. The sea is beautiful for snorkelling and the people are lovely. We used to see dolphins every day out following the boats or just passing by, turtles, blue spotted rays........you'll love it.

Anybody been there already? I try to find out more about rooms there, thinking to book for July or August...

Any info would be welcome, not only about rooms types (I see in reviews there are suites - but what about standard rooms? how they look like? or all rooms there are suites?)...

Hi Warsaw

Not sure if you are in the UK, but if you are First Choice have got some excellent deals on it at the moment, there are about 20 reviews of it on here, most of them good.

When you put Oriental Bay Marsa Alam into the review box it seems to bring up about three oriental Bays so you need to check that you have the right one.

There are about 40 photos that people who have stayed there have uploaded, and you can check them against the ones on the First Choice web-site and it seems to be the same hotel - about 20 pictures on FC website including the different rooms.
