We don't know if it was just our bad luck, or whether we should never repeat this experience again at Marsa Nakari.
We were a group of about 20 people, they had a lot of mix ups with our reservations and we received 5 rooms instead of 7 and so had to sleep cramped up together 5 at a time in one room, although our other alternative was getting a room without an air conditioner, that was NO OPTION in August in Egypt.
The whole stay had a lot of complications, and it seems the Management are used to getting a lot of visitors so did not care to really please 20 more people.
A lot of us are not going to repeat that experience again.
However to be honest, the place itself, the scenery, the diving, the sea, and the ecolodge feeling is incredible and one of the most beautiful places in Egypt ever been to.
The rooms are pretty and cozy, the service itself isn't bad and the all inclusive deal is pretty much worth it.
Never go to Marsa Alam by anything else other than an aeroplane because its farther off than anything else in Egypt!
I guess you can just be very strict with the Management and it will be ok, and i am glad i am writing this review so they can see it too and know that they could have gained 20 regular customers.
