ON THE BEACH AND SEA

 "Excellent diving"
( TripAdvisor.com Vincenzo 16 November 2015 )

"The beach is quiet and the beach boy placed towels on the sunbeds every morning. Fantastic sea which was suitable for children and there were many beautiful fish in the shallow water. To snorkel... there is a footbridge over the reef and there are assistants who will supervise."
( TripAdvisor.com SerenaF 29 July 2013 ) 

"The diving centre is great, Marsa Alam is one of the best places to dive in and enjoy the great weather."
( TripAdvisor.com 27 September 2009 ) 

"The beach is equipped with umbrellas, chairs, screens, towels. Around the beach there are shops and restaurants, not counting kiosks where you can drink for free if you're an all-inclusive."
( HolidayCheck.com Sara March 2008 ) 

"There is a free, regular shuttle bus from reception to Abu Dabbab beach, 15 minutes away, which was by far the best beach for miles around. Superb snorkeling direct from the beach..... The diving centre staff ( at the hotel ) were great, and I recommend the "discover scuba diving" one day course.....   We bought a cheap snorkel and mask (£10) before we went. A false economy as it misted up very quickly and far superior hire ones were very cheap to hire."
( TripAdvisor.com 27 April 2006 ) 


ON THE STAFF

"The service at the Blue Bar was exemplary and equally Hatem at the reception who always helped us with advice... Even the hotel manager asked after us and the open-minded, international animation team gave us much  joy."
( TripAdvisor.com Melanie S. 23 July 2013 ) 

"The animation staff was polite and courteous and the Egyptian staff always had a smile."
( TripAdvisor.com Smnsimona 21 July 2013 ) 

"A note of credit goes to the animation guys who are always ready and available but never overpowering."
( TripAdvisor.com maxximiliano a 8 July 2013 )

"The animation is shared with the adjacent Kahramana hotel and the boys know how to be discreet and engaging without being pushy or pedantic if you don't like to participate in their activities."
( HolidayCheck.com Francesco April 2008 ) 


ON SPORTS

"Good standard of tennis staff, who will hit with you for a total cost of £3.50ph, including racket hire. Football match every evening (5ish) on the beautifully soft grass pitch."
( TripAdvisor.com 27 April 2006 ) 


ON THE POOL

"The pool bar makes a good espresso and the staff is pretty friendly."
( HolidayCheck.com Francesco April 2008 ) 


ON THE ROOMS

"We were in the older complex and were pleased with the room. The air conditioning worked very well. The room service was also good. Daily each guest receives a half litre bottle of water placed in the refrigerator."
( TripAdvisor.com Melanie S 23 July 2013 ) 

"There is internet access in the rooms. The cleaning is not the best but it is sufficient."
( HolidayCheck.com Francesco April 2008 ) 

"Rooms very nice and well furnished...  The bathroom was small but adequate, and a convenient beautiful veranda outside with a coffee table and chairs with cushions... my room was on the ground floor on the far right as you enter the hotel, where there are tables and stone chairs and palm trees in the garden. Fabulous."
( HolidayCheck.com Rosita March 2008 ) 


ON THE FOOD

 "The international restaurant is surrounded by a pool with a circular shape with huge windows. The food is always varied and abundant and although I'm picky I found enough every day for both lunch and dinner of what I liked."
( TripAdvisor.com Giuseppe 3 November 2015 )

"During our stay, the new restaurant opened, which is nicely furnished and air conditioned. The service there is very friendly and attentive. The choice of food is limited but tasted good."
( TripAdvisor.com Melanie S 23 July 2013 ) 

"The food a little repetitive but we are abroad and it was okay."
( TripAdvisor.com maxximiliano a 8 July 2013 )

"I was not blown away by the food...  but worth mentioning the pancakes, which the cook made while you waited, either sweet or savoury. They were a must. A plus point was that there were no stomach problems."
( HolidayCheck.com Geert September 2008 )


ON THE NIGHTLIFE

A Thomsons Rep seems to have enjoyed the hotel's Mine Pub and Discotheque - 

"This underground venue is the place to bop 'til you drop to all the latest sounds, spun by the club's resident DJ."


OVERALL 

"A dream holiday, like the other times I've been t the resort. Good service and rooms and a fantastic beach."
( TripAdvisor.com lallipa1 25 July 2013 ) 

"Nice food and cozy atmosphere. I would recommend it for relaxing holidays."
( TripAdvisor.com 15 May 2012 ) 

"This is one of the best hotels in terms of space, cleanliness, friendly staff and facilities."
( TripAdvisor.com 27 September 2009 ) 

"The beauty of this hotel is that, unlike all the other villages, it is very intimate because it consists of 76 rooms that overlook a large courtyard and is, therefore, quite cozy."
( HolidayCheck.com Sara March 2008 )

"Beautiful, comfortable, functional and well equipped... wonderful  holiday !"
( HolidayCheck.com Ilaria March 2008 ) 

"We had a great time, and would certainly go again."
( TripAdvisor.com 26 April 2006 )
