GUEST REVIEWS

Its' ranking on Trip Advisor has been continually improving in recent years from an already impressive 7th out of 57 hotels in Marsa Alam region in February 2009 to 6th out of 74 hotels as of 7 October 2016. 91 per cent of reviewers (+3% since October 2012) rated the hotel as either "very good" or "excellent" while less than 2 per cent of reviewers (-2% since October 2012) rated the hotel as either "poor" or "terrible."  


On Holiday Check, as of 7 October 2016, it had attained an impressive overall hotel rating of 5.3 out of 6 stars from reviewers (up from 5.2 which it scored in both October 2012 and July 2013) with the highest scores awarded for service at 5.5 (unchanged from 2012 and 2013), rooms at 5.3 (unchanged on 2013 but up from 5.2 in 2012) and sport at 5.2 (unchanged on 2013 but up from 5.1 in 2012) and slightly lower scores for gastronomy at 5.2 (up from 5.1 in July 2013) and location at 5.0 (compared to 4.9 in 2013 and 4.8 in 2012). 94 per cent of Holiday Check reviewers said they would recommend the resort ( up marginally from 93% in 2013 ).  So overall a very good performance and up marginally on previous ratings.  

Not surprisingly reviews on Trip Advisor and Holiday Check have been generally very positive - 


ON THE STAFF:

".....What is not perfect (not everything can ever be perfect) is made good by the staff  ... no matter whether waiters, room boy, bartender or  chef or gardener. They always laugh and satisfy every wish ... If you have something to complain should please choose another hotel."
( This reviewer rated the service at six out of six stars )
( HolidayCheck.de Martina October 2016 )

"....Nothing is every too much for them to do to make your holiday special. Mr Haggag (the GM) has been there for 25 years and is passionate about you having a good relaxing time which he instills  into his staff."
( TripAdvisor Jay September 2016 )  

"All of the staff, even the grounds staff, were the friendliest bunch we hae encountered throughout the hotel resorts in Egypt....  Mr Haggag (the manager) was always available and took an interest in the guests."
( TripAdvisor Irene September 2016 )  

"....A perfect service from our dear friend Mohamed.... our cleaning guy. The room was kept in a perfect state every day, when we needed anything he came immediately."
( TripAdvisor Radka August 2016 ) 


"All work done by men. No women except for in the spa. However the hotel staff were all very pleasant and always helpful. If you offered a small tip they were glad and grateful."
( HolidayCheck Ute March 2013 ) 

"What makes this hotel special is the staff. Friendly, attentive, and so hard working, every one of them from the animation team, to the waiters, gardeners, spa staff, bar staff, cleaners and those in the office. They all make you feel so welcome and really do put themselves out to make your stay perfect. They even made that extra effort once we had left and returned to England, as my daughter left her favourite jacket behind. They not only found it for her but posted it back to us in the UK."
( TripAdvisor.com efw72 30 September 2012 )

This was my fifth visit.... From the moment you arrive you are made to feel incredibly welcome by all the staff... And in fact you feel like you are arriving home, many of the staff are the same and it is amazing how they recognize you....  The staff are superb, extremely attentive, efficient and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. From the bar staff and waiters to the gardeners and pool boy they made us feel comfortable and welcome."
( TripAdvisor.com Boz 24 September 2012 ) 

"Manager Mr El Ammari and all the staff, chefs, animation team....made our holiday an amazing experience. Thank you guys ! Don't miss the evening shows as they are super funny !"
( HolidayCheck.com 3 May 2012 ) 

"The service could not be better ! Clean rooms, nice and friendly waiters.  Superb !"
( HolidayCheck.com Ernst April 2012 ) 

"The only real pain during the two weeks was that the staff all had something they were required to sell - fish restaurant, massage, party - and they would come two or three times each day as they obviously had targets.  I was never rude, and my husband always pretended to be asleep, but it was a bit much to be asked over and over."
( TripAdvisor.com 2 April 2012 ) 

"Staff could not have been more friendly always trying to be as helpful as possible. Rooms were cleaned well and the whole hotel was always spotless."
            TripAdvisor 4 February 2009


ON THE BEACH AND SEA

"...Unfortunately there were strong winds and a choppy sea, which prevented us from enjoying the outer reef. However, there are other entry points including one where the sea is shallow with three quiet coves and sunbeds. We .... walked the twenty minutes to the bay of Marsa Mubarak where you can enter the sea from the beach. All in all we saw turtles, trigger fish, lion fish, and for the first time one stone fish and one scorpion fish."
( TripAdvisor Irene September 2016 ) 

"....the beach. Ah, where to start ? Calm, nice, quiet, not at all full. We always found a good spot for sunbathing, close to the beach restaurant.....  corals are beautiful and the fish like tiny diamonds... The most romantic part of everything was watching the beautiful stars in the night... For me it is a special place that I will forever hold a special place in my heart."
( Tripadvisor Radka August 2016 ) 

"There is a local animal called the dugong... Like a manatee.  It's very rare. It can be found at Marsa Mubarak... a 15 minute walk along the beach. Head to the beach and turn right - south. Keep walking past the "Restricted Area" sign and keep going until you reach the bay with two abandoned hotel buildings..... There is an outcrop of large stone in the middle of the beach....  The (best) time to see it is early mornings or late afternoons. We saw it twice around 17.30... When it surfaced it actually brushed past me."
( TripAdvisor Giftzwerg 1 July 2013 ) 

"The reef was amazing with to die for snorkeling and also "Turtle Bay", which is a twenty minute easy walk away.  We even swam with turtles off the jetty. But also we didn't get to see the sea cow... may be next time !"
( TripAdvisor.com pbax 18 October 2012 )

"Beautiful long sandy beach, great for snorkeling and diving. You could always get a beach chair, no matter whether at the pool or at the beach.  That was really good as you could sleep in without having to reserve chairs."
( HolidayCheck.com Kaja July 2012 )

"The beach has plenty of comfortable sunbeds, sunshades and wind breaks. At times the wind can be quite strong so these are necessary but they do add to the feeling of privacy. The beach restaurant provides lunches and afternoon snacks so you can spend all day soaking up the sun and doing nothing very easily although diving, camel riding etc are on offer if you've a need for these."
( TripAdvisor.com 5 May 2012 ) 

"We didn't really like the beach as there is no direct (walk in) access to the sea (because of the coral).  In the shallow water (first access from the jetty) you will not see any nice fish.  I'm not a good swimmer, however I managed to get into the water from the second access and it's not very deep.  What I saw there was a breath taking water wonderland. Amazing !"
( TripAdvisor.com 3 May 2012 ) 

"The reef in front of the hotel is breath taking, absolutely fantastic ! Also the water is clean and snorkeling is fun !"
( HolidayCheck.com Ernst April 2012 ) 

"The hotel itself has a jetty......You can walk half the way up it and snorkel in a moderately shallow place.....(but) If you venture to the end of the jetty, off to the left is a lagoon which is reasonably calm and hosts a bigger selection of fish......If you walk ten to fifteen minutes down the beach to the right you will come to an abandoned bay.  Go early in the morning and you will have a memorable experience for the rest of your life.......Every time we went we saw a family of turtles.  They are grazing on the sea grass early morning and completely friendly."
( TripAdvisor.com 18 April 2012 ) 

"Most of the guests are German charter tourists. They start to occupy the sunbeds and umbrellas at six am."
( TripAdvisor 9 April 2012 ) 

"A ten minute walk and you are at Turtle Bay, where yes, you can swim off the beach with turtles, and if you get up early enough even sea cows !"
( TripAdvisor 6 April 2012 ) 

"It's a perfect place for snorkeling and if you are afraid of going under water you can see a lot of different fishes from the beach. Fantastic !"
( HolidayCheck.com Vanja March 2012 ) 

"The beach was nice apart from we had to play sports on there and the sand was very shelly so i had alot of cuts in my feet by the end on my holiday."
            TripAdvisor 30 January 2009


ON THE ROOMS

"The rooms are very clean and large. Again we had a room directly on the beach. The room boy was perfect. We never had a grain of sand in the room !"
( This reviewer rated the rooms at six out of six stars )
( HolidayCheck.de Martina October 2016 )

"Clean, tidy, spacious enough.... Mattresses and pillows a bit hard for my liking but you could ask at reception and they would change them. Showers nice and hot - plenty of power. Wardrobe could do with some more hangers (we had eight in total)....There is a house-safe which you can programme free of charge. You get two large bottles of water in your room at the start of the holiday (and) you can refill them from water fillers from around the hotel. Balcony with table and chairs and plenty of room to dry swimming...stuff."
( TripAdvisor.com Giftzwerg 1 July 2013 ) 

"The rooms are very clean and large. Again we had a room directly on the beach. The room boy was perfect. We never had a grain of sand in the room !"
( This reviewer rated the rooms at six out of six stars )
( HolidayCheck.de Martina October 2016 )

"The rooms were perfectly acceptable, mattress very firm, but you can change it if you request so no issues there."
( TripAdvisor.com 6 April 2012 ) 


ON THE GROUNDS AND GARDENS:

"Oh, the gardens just a bla
ze of colour everywhere with a regiment of gardeners !"

( TripAdvisor.com 3 May 2012 ) 


"The gardens are out of the world, a vast array of colour, you could be in an English country garden, not the desert."
( TripAdvisor.com 19 April 2012 ) 

"The hotel grounds are simply stunning. Flowers everywhere and perfect lawns."
( TripAdvisor.com 6 April 2012 ) 

"This is a newish hotel with a nice layout but the grounds are far from finished. They are working very hard to establish trees, plants and grass but it will take time........There is no rainfall, no soil and a burning sun - conditions that would have any UK gardener throwing himself on the point of his trowel by lunchtime."
( Reviewer on TripAdvisor 18 January 2009  )  


ON EXTRA CHARGES

PLEASE NOTE - the following comments were made several years ago (January 2009) and may no longer be valid - 
"Pool table (billiards) cost 5 euros for 1 hour, an absolutely ridiculously high price especially when there really wasn't much else for teenagers to do in the evening. my bill at the end of my holiday was a phenomenal £190. You also have to pay for all contents in the mini bar including the small bottles of water, for 1 coke 1 sprite and 1 small bottle of water on the night we arrived cost 38 Egyptian pound, approx £5. if you wanted to eat down at the beach restaurant on an evening, that was extra and Chez Pascal was just ridiculously priced...."
( Reviewer on TripAdvisor 9 January 2009 )


ON THE FOOD

"The food is varied and of a high quality, the waiting staff remember your drinks and before you have sat down with food will have them on your table. I would highly recommend Chez Pascal - great food for reasonable prices. We had a two course meal with a 1kg lobster which was less than £41 for the two of us and the glorious chateaubriand was just £25 for both of us."
( TripAdvisor Jay September 2016 )  

"Food was excellent - tasty meat (chicken, lamb, beef, seafood). Potatoes were sometimes undercooked. Very friendly waiters."
( TripAdvisor Martins August 2016 ) 


"The food is very tasty and there's a lot to choose between.  I just adore the fish and all the different vegetables.  My husband loves the meat and of course both of us enjoy the desserts !"
( HolidayCheck.com Vanja April 2012 ) 

"There was a wide variety of food from the buffet dining room......If you couldn't find something you liked then you are either very fussy or have a very narrow pallet."
( HolidayCheck.com Nigel March 2012 ) 

"The food was good - very high attention to hygiene and presentation - enough selection for AI (All Inclusive) not to get boring. The AI drinks very good - once again Cocktails served with pride in nice glasses - during the day they are served in plastic cups - buy hey that is for your safety round the pool."
           TripAdvisor 31 December 2008


ON EXCURSIONS

"If you can leave your sunbed for a couple of hours try the camels, horses or quads. You will certainly have some fun."
( TripAdvisor.com 13 May 2012 ) 


OVERALL

"The hotel is a magical hotel, you are always made to feel very special every time you visit. Been here many, many times and we never cease to be amazed at the service you receive from everybody."
( TripAdvisor Cheersmate October 2016 )  

"From the moment you get out of the coach you know you are in a special place with warm smiles, a cold towel and drink and the GM Haggag greeting you. We asked for a quiet room near the dive centre and got a picture perfect room that looked out onto the beach and sea."
( TripAdvisor Jay September 2016 ) 

"The hotel's private beach is inviting and you can enjoy the sun and the nearby reef for diving and snorkeling. The entertainment was diverse and not intrusive. Pool area, gardens and beach were very clean and tidy. The offered excursions are however not cheap and participation should be considered carefully."
( HolidayCheck.com Ute March 2013 ) 

"This is not the place to travel to for the nightlife, but to see nature's beauty and to recharge your batteries."
( TripAdvisor.com Maxim 27 September 2012 )

"Everywhere friendly staff and happy guests. Ideal for people in search of peace and quiet."
( HolidayCheck.com Horst August 2012 )

"If you're looking for action you are in the wrong place, but if you are looking to relax or go snorkeling or diving then this hotel is not to be missed."
( HolidayCheck.com Antje July 2012 )

"If you like a nice beach, clear blue water, wonderful staff, good food, a relaxing place, this is where you should go."
( HolidayCheck.com Vanja April 2012 ) 

"If you like a restful vacation in a wonderful place with a nice blue sea, beautiful gardens and smiling people this is the place to be !"
( TripAdvisor.com 4 April 2012 ) 

"We would go back to this hotel without a second thought."
( HolidayCheck.com Nigel March 2012 )
