“pleasant experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

i have been to the resort a couple of times and every time the quality of food and service amazes me. What's amazing there is that i felt that i was every staff member's priority and the friendly environment made me feel just like back home. Me and my family needed a getaway and that was the perfect destination with its beautiful scenery and clean rooms. The staff were very friendly and polite, the food was very delicious and the waiters were very keen to serve different varieties of food. I advice anyone who wants to have a peaceful vacation, to experience Marsa Alam Elphistone Resort, you will never regret it.

This hotel is practically like my second home! I always go their and I for sure recommend this considering the great hospitality, cleanliness, food, entertainment, breath taking view from the room.Even the staff were all polite and friendly as well as professional, could not have asked for better, beautiful surroundings and great choice of food/bars

This is the best hotel which I have ever been. The food is excellent, I have never eat such good meals during my holidays. I was here for 2 weeks, and every day was wonderful. The beach is very clean, and the sea is perfect. Every day my room was perfectly clean, and sometimes housekeeper was making from the towels different animals, etc. The reception was always helpful, and very kind. All people from the hotel staff were very friendly. You can find there 3 swimming pools, and one with Jacuzzi. The hotel is working always on the highest level of service. I really like being there. If I wanted I could go to private beach from the hotel by free shuttle bus. It's nice place and you can snorkeling for many hours. It's also good place for trips. From the hotel is not far away to one of the best places at Red Sea- Dolphin House.
Animation of the hotel are working very good and every day is something different to do. I was always participating in activities. My kids were happy that they have place to play with another kids, because the Mini Club were great. My kids could be in Mini Club for 24h/ night.

I recommend this hotel for everybody. You will have the best holidays there!!

Room Tip: I recommend building B in hotel. The room has beautiful panoramic view.
