I can't wait to go back!
The lodge exceeded my expectations! The gardens have grown a lot since the pictures were taken and are colorful and beautiful. The room was very clean and comfortable and bigger than I thought it would be. There was a small refrigerator with bottled water that was replenished daily, a couch, and a large closet in the room. The A/C worked great, we even got cold during the night. The quality of the food here was better than the two other places I've stayed at in Marsa and the choices were different at every meal which was nice. The waiters were attentive, but I wish the drinking glasses were a little bigger. The beach was the best!! It had plenty of sunbeds or large beanbag chairs and shade. The setup was nice because you're not too close to your neighbor and it's very private. My daughter rode a camel on the beach and it was a reasonable price. The snorkeling was fantastic and so colorful! We saw so much variety here...spotted eagle rays, turtles, and so many different fish and coral. I'm glad I took a chance and stayed here, it was awesome!

Not Impressed
I chose this hotel because I thought it was the only one in Abu Dabab bay. We went to Egypt to dive and according to my research Abu Dabab bay was one of the nicest shore dives in Southern Egypt and had the best chance of diving with turtles and a dugong. I can confirm that the diving and snorkelling are lovely - the reef is colourful and teeming with fish - and it starts only a few metres from the shore. The seagrass area in the middle of the bay has a large population of green turtles. However, the hotel itself leaves a lot to be desired. The beds were extremely hard and uncomfortable. The pillows were like rocks. The food served was extremely bland and towards the end of our one week stay made us both ill. The drink selection was limited to sprite, coke, fanta and beer and the man on the check-in desk was extremely unhelpful. If you want to dive in Abu Dabab then I would suggest you look at the Sol Y Mar Abu Dabab hotel which is right next door. It would have to be better than this place.

nur wenige Gehminuten zum Strand, Personal sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, man bekommt pro Zimmer zwei Strandtücher was sehr angenehm ist, da man nach dem Urlaub die sandigen und salzigen Strandtücher einfach dort lassen kann. einziges Manko - fehlendes WLAN- bzw. nur gegen Gebühr
