We have enjoyed staying in this hotel so much, that after the first days we extended our stay from one to two weeks. Indeed:
• The area is quiet and very nice: beautiful sea, a reef with lots of colored fish…
• Our room was very wide, had two queen beds and it was well cleaned every day. The fan extractor in the bathroom worked perfectly (which is often not the case, in other hotels!)
• Outside the resort, there are nice paths along the beach, both on the left and on the right; they are still rather pristine (apart from some garbage). We recommend walking them with Alessio, the Italian “entertainer”, because he is excellent at spotting wildlife: he pointed us to big crabs, starfish, eagles…
• Within the hotel premises, all the walking paths and the common areas are well cleaned and full of flowers
• There is just one restaurant, but every day its buffet offers a wide selection of food: many kinds of salads and vegetables, fish or meat, two kinds of soup, rice and pasta, desserts, pizza etc. We disliked very few items; all the rest ranged from quite acceptable to excellent. And everything is available till the end of the service
• The staff of the hotel and of the tour operator was friendly and helpful.
• The TV in the room had channels in different languages, including three Italian ones.
• There were three small “book-crossing” stations (places where you can freely exchange your books for others)

We do not give the maximum rating, due to a few negative points:

- The area is very windy; which is good for the kite surfers, but not good for people like us, who wanted to swim, to snorkel and to bath in the sun. The existing windscreens do not help much. The hotel should either place more effective windscreens near the sea beds, or arrange for low-wind sunbathing areas: since the wind blows mostly in one direction, the existing buildings could be used as a shelter
- Out of the three book-crossing stations, the more interesting one was locked in the diving center, so only the customers who paid for diving, were allowed to access it.
- Entertainment: we had always known that this is meant for relax and not for amusement; and mid-January is low season. However, they could have done a little more: there was absolutely no entertainment, apart from one event per week: a (very nice) “Tanoure” show, with a belly dancer and a gown dancer.
- Music: being Italians, at the beginning we liked to hear Italian songs from the restaurant’s speakers. But ONLY Italian songs is too much: no international hits, not even a bit of local music ... For sure, also the many not-Italian guests would have appreciated a change :-)
- Massage: the guy who offers massages, chases after each tourist on every day, many times per day. We said “no” in every possible way, even being rude; only when we complained with the representative of the tour operator, he left us in peace for a few days. Then he started again. Finally, my wife accepted to do a few massages (which were good and cheap); but he continued to push for additional massages, for healthcare activities etc. etc.

My family spent the Christmas vacation in this beautiful place. The hotel is excellent, staff are friendly and helpful, and rooms are comfortable and clean. The place is scenery and very interesting regarding corals, marine life, natural plantation including mangroves. It's very near to Hamata port, where you can take boats to Sataya to swim with dolphins and snorkel. The kite village is also close and the hotel provides transportation to it.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are comfortable for kids and elderly

This hotel is located 2,5 hours drive away from the airport of Marsa Alam. The hotel itself is nice, has 2 pools and has a housereef where you can snorkel if you want. You can see that the hotel is build several years ago, so here en there you can see some things that need some paint for exemple. But the overall condition of the rooms is very good.

The hotel invests also in green grass and flowers. I was sad because of this because this is a desert area and water is scarce... I would've been happy if the plants and the grass was fake, but that's just my opinion.

Every member of the staff was very friendly, but I noticed there was no female staff... A lot of them could speak English and even some German and Italian. No need to say that most of the hotel guests are Italian or German. (With a big focus on the Italians, music at the restaurant was always Italian.)

I must be honest, I was here to dive in the Red Sea. I don't understand for which other reason you would come here. There is almost nothing else to do in the region, except for kite surfing. The pools in the hotel are good for people who want to get some colour, but I wouldn't take kids here, unless they like to snorkel the reef.

The food was always good. There were always many choices of cold and hot dishes (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Alcohol choices were also good (wine, beer, cocktails, vodka).

Room Tip: Vraag een kamer met zeezicht. Voor duikers zijn blok E en C zeer handig want dicht bij duikcentrum.
