Location is the only nice point about the hotel. Marlin Inn is situated in the beginning of a big promenade zone with shopping centres, boutiques and cafes where it's very pleasant to spend time in the evening when it is not so hot. There is no heavy traffic in this district as it is in the centre of Hurghada Saccala.
The beach is too little for this hotel. Sunbeds are situated very close to each other. I wonder either the management of the hotel have ever heard about "private space"? The bottom of the sea is dirty which is unpleasant. No shower with fresh water. You have to go to the hotel with sand on your feet.
Catering. The place they call "restaurant" more looks like a canteen at school. Queues for food, almost no choice, almost no fruit, dirty tables. Waiters don't hurry to clean dirty plates, they are not polite and not helpful at all. But the most shocking thing is that you have no possibility to take what you want and as much as you want, because cook gives you only ONE piece of something. May be they don't understand what is "ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET"?
We travel several times a year. It was my 5th trip to Egypt, but it's for the 1st time that we don't want to come back to the hotel
