    К сожалению отель никак не соответствует уровню 5 звезд. Очень плохое обслуживание, очень плохое питание и напитки. Из хорошего только красивый живой риф и ухоженная зеленая территория.

    Достойный отель

    В ноябре 2020 года останавливался в нескольких отелях Шарм-эль-шейх, shores amphora был одним из лучших вариантов. Также не на много отличается и shores aloha

  • 4.0.Fair

    Muito abaixo do esperado para um resort

    É um resort mediano com quartos com algum nível de conforto mas os restaurantes com comida muito repetida e de qualidade duvidosa. Os quartos não possui internet e mesmo a internet na area comum na recepção é de qualidade terrível. As atividades oferecidas pelo resort são tb de qualidade duvidosa, Agendei um mergulho com o operador do hotel e tive o desconforto de não conseguir embarcar no dia por overbook, depois de 2h de espera no porto. Além disso, é um local com muitos fumantes que não respeitam as áreas fechadas onde fumar é proibido. Nào recomendo para ninguém.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Good: they have a daily free shuttle bus to Naama Bay at night, all food inclusive, helpful and great staff willing to help you solve issues, help you calling taxi, etc. You can snorkel and get great massages. Bad: bad internet, no WiFi in rooms and the one in reception is very slow, they must raise their cleaning standards, they don’t clean cups/glasses in the room even if they are used, had to ask the cleaner to leave soap. A very big hotel. Small beach area.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Un Hotel que entró ya en años y habría que reformar las habitaciones. Muy bien situado. El personal muy agradable y dispuestos a resolver los problemas que puedan surgir. La comida en el restaurante principal muy buena y variada. Los restaurantes especializados están bien pero nada mas.
