If you are looking for a quiet holiday without to many distractions Marsa Alam is the place for you and there is no better place to spend it than at the Hilton Nubian Resort!!
The #1 asset of this resort is it's staff, every single member we came across showed warmth, friendliness and a genuine eagerness to please and provide excellent customer service.
We would like to send out a special thank you to; Mojo, Daria and Daniel at the kidsclub. Ayman our roomattendant. Hesham, charming and witty sous-chef and all the wonderful waiters, Ibrahim,Hussein and Nour just to mention a few.
The rooms at the resort are spacious, modern and kept immaculate for the entire stay. The pool area and the sunloungers are in pristine condition. The main pool was slightly cold whilst we were there so we choose to use the Waves-pool which was heated and that got it's own little beach area surrounding it. For those travelling without and wanting to get away from children there is a dedicated pool for your use-however there wasn't a huge amount of children at the resort whilst we were there anyway. All 4 pools are in excellent condition!!
The resort is situated a short little distance ( maybe 300meters) from it's own cordoned off beach- however do not let this put you off...if you have problems or don't wish to walk there is a litle mini-train departing every 5-10 min for the beach. At the beach there is a bar/restaurante, towels and beds are of course provided for you. You can't access the sea immediately infront of the private area but all you do is to walk along maybe 50m and there is the beautiful reef, excellent for snoorkling, situated. If you wish there are beds without charge provided here as well- but they don't belong to the resort and are not always in the best condition.
The main restaurant at the resort might be a little noisy due to the high-ceiling architecture, personally I got used to this very quickly and it didn't bother us the slightest after a day or two. Alternatively you can dine on the terrace. If you wish to get away from the buffet style dining there is the option to dine by the pool, something we only did for lunch, or at the bar in the lobby. All the food was beautifully presented, showed a great variety every night and tasted great. However someone who wants a different dining experience in terms of location every night shouldn't choose this hotel as the choice is limited.
My only disappontment with this resort would be the great looking kidsclub. I wish there was access to the brand new and brilliant playground outside opening hours as it is really too hot to play there in the middle of the day. The schedule of the kids club looked great on paper so did the activities, however this did not always transfer in to reality. My 5 year old did come away very satisfied though, and she did love all the staff so it was not really a problem.
We did have an absolutely wonderful time at the resort and would like to thank ALL the members of staff for making our holiday really special and we do hope to come back one day. THANK YOU!!
