Superb budget Hotel! But do NOT use the dive center here! Just returned from a week at this lovely hotel. Everything top notch. Room was huge with massive balcony, 3 lovely pools, stunning beach! Snorkeling on the house reef at the end of the jetty is fantastic. Entertainment team work hard and very good, but if you don't want to join in they wont hassle you. Gardens are beautiful. We booked a standard room, as did the other couple we traveled with but were both given superior rooms right on the beach!! (at no extra cost) All staff, and I really mean ALL, were so friendly and helpful. Food was absolutely fantastic. Cannot praise this hotel enough and will return. I have been to Egypt several times, - Sharm, Hurghada, Makadi Bay and Marsa Alam and can honestly say that for the cost, this hotel is up at the top.

Room Tip: Go for Suprior room. Right on beach and lovely view.

No tea&Coffee at resturant if you want to have hot drink you have to go to the lobby Bar!!!!!!!!!

The pool was not clean.
No life guard at the pool!!!!!!!!!!

The good thing at the hotel the beach and the marine very nice coral beach and mr.omar the life guard at the marien is very good man alwes smile.

The animatian team not good this the first time in my life find animatian team not smiling!!!!!!!!!
They alwes tired,exept the girl tetii from belgium and the guy with anick name ( shakira),they was nice.

Finally,they have to spend some money and the hotel need to make arenovatian at each single part inside, and toadd some activity at the hotel,as soon as possiple.

Excellent resort with kind friendly staff. Restaurant was excellent with fantastic food and helpful staff. A massive thanks to them for the birthday surprise they laid on. The entertainment staff on the beach were very friendly and made it very welcoming with some good entertainment and activities during the day and in the evening. Excellent day out on the quad bikes. Rooms were also very clean and well maintained. A fantastic resort being my first time in Egypt, will deffently look at a return visit

Animators super friendly, always had some activities to do, also the beach is very clean and nice. Food tasty, however there was no late night snacks, so we were always hungry after 10pm or so...Anyway still Would fully recommend
