We have traveled to many places around the world and many places in Egypt. Not many have given us such a great holiday as we had here in Oriental bay. Their slogan come as a guest leave as a friend is perfect as i certainly feel that I have now made many new friends. The hotel is located far from noisy nightlife and is perfect for getting away from everything. Mr Mahmoud Sayed the bars manager will do everything to make your stay a perfect one. This man seems to be everywhere helping to make all guests feel like friends. Excellent beach just a few moments stroll from the hotel is quite and secluded. Beach has its own bar and small dining area. Buffet restaurant serves excellent variety of foods to cater for all tastes.

we are french but we will share our experience in english, it's maybe usefull.
we spend 3 weeks in this hotel from december the 2nd till 22.
Good points: the staff is really very kind and helpfull, Special thanks to Tarek and his restaurant's team. The housereef is easily accessible for swimmers and snorkellers. Rooms are very big and confortable. Buffet is good and you can find a wide range of different meal and food. Kitchens are very clean and food is safe. Big thanks to Chief Waheed. And you can ask anything or share your ideas with the hotel manager Mr Walid, he is listenning for your suggests.to improve your holidays.
Bad points: after a long long trip arriving at the parking, it will be nice that someone help us with our luggages. At the beach the toilets must be rebuild or at least be claened more often (we talk about that with the manager and it should get better).

As snorkellers we don't exist for the diving center(duck' superior) but this is not the fact of the hotel.

At least, bad points are not more important than positivs and we will return with pleasure in this hotel.

In the hotel Oriental Bay we have spent a very relaxing week in November 2013. For us it was the first time in Marsa Alam and this hotel was the best choice! Everything was just perfect!

The hotel is located in the bay that prevents the beach from the strong winds. As there are no big waves in the bay it is the best place for snorkeling. There is a diving centre near the hotel where you can arrange some trips or just borrow all the things you need for snorkeling or diving.

The most amazing was the staff of the hotel. All of them were very friendly and helpful all the time. Furthermore, most of them can speak variety of languages which was really surprising. They all really good represent motto of the hotel “Come as a guest, leave as a friend”.

The same we can say about the animation team. They cared of all the guests and prepared many various activities so that everybody can choose what to do. There were sporting activities during the day and funny and competitive activities in the evening.

As for food and beverages, the variety and taste was excellent and not only in the main restaurant but also at the pool or beach bars. Everything was very fresh and tasty.

Thank you for great holiday. We hope to come again in future.

We spent in Oriental Bay very good week. We appreciate the decor of the hotel and cleanliness. Delicious food and excellent service, very helpful waiter Hamdy and always smiling Mohamed. At the bars there is also a good service. Congrats for barman form the beach bar and Ahmed from piano bar. The schedule of the activities for guests was amazing, is impossible to get bored with you. I liked the most exercises at the beach, good animators. If I had a chance I would come back.

First at all it was a very relaxing, variedand and unforgettable holiday.

The staff is simply perfect.
Very helpful, friendly and attentive.
I would like to specially mention here Hamdy, our great waiter,Chico a lovable swiss german speaking animateur and Ahmed who made great drinks.

The food was always fresh and they had a good selection.

The evening entertainment was very good and varied.

You could just relax on the diffrent very clean pools or join the animation program on the beach.

If you have a problem no matter what, they all will help you to resolve it immdiately.

Thanks for this amazing holiday.

We have been in this Hotel for the third time in one year. It means, that we found it excellent - dorminatory, service, meal, beach and what is more very friendly staff. I am sure, that the motto of this hotel speaks for its own : Come as a guest, leave as a friend. We are going to go there in a short time. According to me tomorrow, but I must wait for my wife..............
Best regards to my friends in Oriental Bay: Mr. Kenawy, Mr Tamer Ibrahim and Ayman in pool Bar.
