“Blue Reef Marsa Alam: ruined and dreadful looking”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2011

Spent a single night over this 4 (???) stars resort. The room had very (very very) poor quality. We've been missing the tap water all the night long and the bathroom was terribly stinking.
The reception didn't help at all while we pointed out these discomforts
the buffet restaurant had the same poor quality of the room.
Beautiful landscape and beach

Blue Reef hotel is a very good choice if you plan a dive trip or a quiet holiday in Marsa Alam.The resort is small, very clean,with a beautiful garden and built in arabian stlye.Rooms are big,comfy,have a terrace with a nice sea /pool view.The house reef is amazing,the long beach very clean .If you want to reach the drop off to the house reef,you need to walk a little , but it is worth.(don't forget to wear shoes)Dive spots around Marsa Alam are 'a must' for every diver.(dugongs,giant turtles,barracudas,dolphins,sharks).The dive center is just in front of the hotel,the people there very nice ,friendly and polite.The food was very good(don't forget to check every evening the BBQ corner).Everything was fresh ,clean and delicious.Missed vegetables at the breakfast tough,but they were in a huge amount at lunch and dinner.Bottled water was not included(you can buy it at the bar or at the shop just in front of the hotel) No,WIFI ,only one computer with internet access in the lobby.Hotel staff,very nice,polite and friendly.All in one ,I had a very nice stay and I would recommend this hotel to family with kids,divers ,but it isn't really a holiday place for young travellers(a little bit boring at nights).

i was there for a diving trip. the diving center in the resort is small but people working there were nice and really willing to help. unfortunately we were few divers and was not possible to arrange dives in elphistone, but the dives arranged were anyhow good. the resort is small, nice and clean, and has a really nice reef in front of. unfortunately you have to walk in the water for more than 10 minutes to reach the drop off (remember to take a pair of shoes to be used there, rocks and fishes are not really nice under feet...). real con: italian animation was too noisy.

The hotel is a normal one with nice and really clean rooms and dependencies. Is situated directly to the Red Sea beach. I stayed here for one night because I came from Aswan in the way to Hurghada. I paid for a double room with half board included directly to the reception 60 EUR / night. The room had a nice sea and swimming pool view, It was realy big with a nice terace and with a big bathroom. There are two swimming pools, hotel have a private beach and parking for free. The food was average but we find something to eat and drink.
