When we were there in Sept when most European countries had a travel embargo on going to Egypt except Uk , the Hotels that were open had about 40% occupancy.

Since then more countries have reinstated flights and numbers are climbing.

To be truthful when you are down at Marsa , unless you watched the news you would not have known there was anything going on elsewhere.

Can not answer for your hotel but think the numbers are still down but you won't be on your own.

Hi Niklet

We are going to Marsa Alam on 1st January - 15th January staying in Coraya Bay. We have been many times to Egypt and Marsa Alam and trust me, you have no worries at all. If it wasn't safe, the tour operators would not go there.

Go and have a good time, the same as we are. Have fun! x
