The hotel is situated nicely if you opt for a seaview. Can't expect more.
House reef is fantastic & with a bit of luck you can snorkel for turtles & dolphins. However the disadvantage to it is no beach service so if you want to relax by the bay you need either to walk up to Samaya bar and return (5 min.) or take a bottle a water with you. Lamaya infrastructure is much better developed.
The food was the most disgusting hotel food I have ever had a chance to experience in Egypt.
Choice ok, however it all tasted the same. The biggest dissapointment was wine (sour, undrinkable really) and beer (watered down, shame!!).
Honestly - from a German hotel i would have expected the beer to be at least "good".
All in all - good, spacious hotel, beautiful house reef. The food decreases the overall quality down to 2 star.

Again and for the 5th consecutive year, we are back to our preferred hotel in Red Sea. Once we enter the hotel lobby, we really feel at home. They have amazing staff, fantastic location facing Red Sea and delicious food. Atmosphere is unforgettable and help you releasing your work load/headache and life pressure. Also, we enjoy diving with the professional divers in the onsite diving center. There is also a medium size Aqua Park 150 meter nearby with free entrance for Hotel Guests. I can say without any doubt this is the best Hotel in Marsa Alam.

We were looking forward to spend a week holiday all together...in family. We made the right choice ! All the members of the staff were cutting themselves in 4 to make us feel at home. Our room was large and very comfortable. Our baby felt very quickly at ease in this new environnement. It was very nice to walk around and stop from time to time enjoying the area with this nice view on this marvellous red sea.
To recommend with both eyes closed !

Medium size 4 stars resort on the red sea with the taste of 5+ stars resort. Amazing crew, who waste no efforts to make you feel at home. Very good food with different tastes to match everyone needs. Majority of guests are German makes the resort like a German Club Resort. Diving center onsite about 200m walking from the hotel reception, where you find a professional diving team to enjoy you diving trips everywhere around Marsa Alam. Eliphenstone is the most wonderful diving site 2:30 hours by boot from the hotel where you can see Sharks and Dulphins in the same place. Don't wait and just try it :-)
