“holiday hell”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

to be honest i was disapointed as soon as we arrived to the hotel, it looks very drab, it is in desperate need of refurb and first impressions when you walk into the lobby are "its dirty" silk flowers that must be ten years old and the lobby reeking of stale smoke! we could not get into our room from day one as the card locks are faulty and you have to blow into them to make them work. no water or mini bar in room as promised, we werent allowed a kettle either as we didnt have children but we spoke to other couples who had them, with no kids, if u tip all the time you will get decent service, if u believe you should tip once a good service is shown then you wont get anything other than ignored! i must say keelo from the beach bar is not included in this slating he works hard and is very nice tip or not he brings you drinks all day. you have to pay for fresh orange juice at breakfast! the all inclusive deal is not worth it at all, the beer mayas well be water and the vodka tastes like paint stripper! the food is terrible, very little choice and the same every day, on the bbq on an evening they look at you gone out if you ask for more meat, bear in mind they have just put the scabbiest piece of bone on your plate and expect it to fill you. the beach is dirty and sharp, you can barely swim in the sea, the pool was freezing.need i go on? dont waste your money

Room Tip: our room was cold and on the darkside

Just returned from two weeks at this hotel we had a fantastic holiday and great new years eve celebration.
All the staff were friendly especially the waiters and restaurant managers who worked so hard to make our holiday special.
We really enjoyed are time in Egypt as we always do.
We miss the hotel and the friendly egyptians who made us so welcome.
We hope to return and wish to say a big thankyou to all the staff at the hotel.

I spent with my sister two wonderful weeks in Dreams Beach in Marsa Alam. The service was excellent!!!!! I would like to say big thank you to housekeeping and chefs as the rooms were really cleaned and food was very tasty. Only what we did not like was white and red wine.
The hotel provides many of sports and leisure activities. I think that we tried most of them :) The animation team was really great /specially Jana, Tom and Irina/.
For the first time we tried scuba diving and it was fantastic experience and I am really proud of ourselves that we managed it.
What I should say at the end????? .....just go there and enjoy very nice time as we did!!!!!!

Nice resort, but a bit small. is a bit far from the airport of Marsa Alam. The entrance to the village is not wonderful, perhaps because when we went we had been opened recently.
Upon arriving we were given a welcome drink, our luggage had already been brought to the room.
The recepition was too hot, there was no form of air conditioning, because practically outdoors, in fact, the day of our departure, we were left half an hour has to suffer in the heat.
In the village there was a small swimming pool with a bar, where the afternoon was possible to make a drink and fries, pizzas, locally made cheeses.
Beautiful coral reef.
The restaurant quite satisfactory.
The animation was Settemari Club. It was not possible to take a walk outside the village, because there was practically nothing. Suitable for those who want to relax.

We just got back from Dream Beach Marsa Alam...
Except the swimming pool and the room that were very clean... the service and the food were terrible...most of the people we were with were sick during several days...clear they clean the glass with not proper water...and the reception were useless...
We were scared about the review before to go but thought it was sometimes people with high expectations...we were right to be scared....
