Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It’s very nice place with a good food although unfortunately we didn’t eat meet because they didn’t accept our reservation as we didn’t pay in advance… which we didn’t know that we should…
Make long short, We made in order via there site and receive confirmation. When we arrived we notified that we don’t have reservation as we didn’t pay in advance so we can order only fish…
The man in the parking was very unpleasant and also the owner when she keep explaining to us that as we didn’t pay they didn’t cook for us…she didn’t try to find a solution or understand the situation she keep telling us that we don’t have an order so we can eat only fish… which it’s definitely not the reason we arrived to this restaurant.
One more thing, when we ask to settle the payment we realized that they charge us more for the cocktails. It looks like a method because more guests complained about that… so please pay attention that you received an email regarding the payment and check your bill…
One more thing, from the first moment it’s very important to them to notifying about place rules and how much you will pay if you won’t keep them… not a nice feeling/ welcome.

Me and my friends spent the worst day in our vacation in this place starting with the staff attitude and ending with the overcharged bill due to their indirect swimwear standards

Overrated and totally not recommended

Over billing:
they said it’s not allowed to swim in the pond with any clothes as the cotton is not allowed in the pond because it will react with something i can’t remember as the lady in the bar mentioned the thing which we understand but our friend was wearing a 100% swimwear they charged her 1000 EGP although she was wearing 100% swimwear not a burkini or any cotton material

Food:
We ordered 4 veal and 1 salmon
The salmon was good and tasty but the veal was over salty even the vegetables was very salty and when we asked to take the salmon plate takeaway the lady at the restaurant said they don’t have a takeaway which is very weird as i pay for this food and it’s not an open buffet it’s actually my food

Place view :

They have an amazing view with good music the only good thing in this place

My husband and I went once before we started dating, then again after we started dating -where he actually proposed to me- then again after we got married. The place is beautiful, very clean, well-maintained…the scenery is amazing and its energy is very peaceful and serene. The food is PERFECT we got the ribs the first time and never thought about changing our order because of how delicious it always is. The staff are all very nice and welcoming especially Lucy who’s been nothing but kind to us. Whenever we go we have to chat with her for a bit because for us she’s a part of the Castle Zaman experience! Love that place 🤍

The place itself is definitely paradise. The food, the view, the quiet. But... And thats a huge but, the people that run the place, from the guard to the owner, have a lot to learn on human relations and kind service. They are all rude, have bad expressions and aggressive reactions. Unfortunately I will never go back and never recommend to relatives

What a view! Extremely clean place with amazing food and breathtaking views.

The staff is very helpful and clear rules to keep the pond clean for everyone.

The place has also a beautiful beach, so don’t forget your snorkel gear incase you want to take a swim to the corals - ask the staff for the best spot for snorkeling.

We had An amazing stay- would totally recommend it despite the reviews I saw before it here.

Thank you!

The place is unbelievably beautiful. The food is so tasty i have never tasted anything that good in my life. The 1 star is because the manager (Lucy); the moment we set foot in the place she welcomed us with a set of rules in such a rude aggressive way, we didnt care much as the view was mesmerising so we listened to the rules and we carried on until we got in the pond and she came over and started yelling at my friend cause her swimsuit was more modest than the rest ( a 1 piece shorts female swimsuit) and her reason was the rules state that only swimsuites allowed in the pond and for some reason she was not convinced that my friends swimsuit is actually a swimsuit. Anyhow we didnt want our day to get ruined and my friend was already out of the pond and we decided that we dont need her attitude so we will just pay and leave so when i went and asked for the bill she said and i quote “ the rules are clear and if you dont know how to speak or read english you can read arabic” keep in mind am an Egyptian who live and work in the UK with French education, my friend with the modest swimsuit is a recruitment company owner with business worldwide, our 3rd friend is actually British and our 4th friend is an IT developer. I told her to stop talking and just give us the bill to leave but she kept going for not less than 20 mins and all i can think of is googling a picture of a bodysuit (cause she said that what my friend is wearing is a bodysuit not a swimsuit) and showing it to her but how rude, unprofessional and impolite she was made me just wanna leave as her attitude is disgusting. I know this review is basically the same as 97% of the reviews here but that person is a virus in a beautiful amazing place and she needs to be stopped. Oh yeah and before we leave she had the audacity to ask us not to write a bad review 😂

The food is not as expected or as spoken about in the past, the molokheya is a real disappointment and the whole food experience is so poor and not worth the expenses paid for! Definitely avoid the music ruins the view for you

Amazing location. Horrible day. The staff is negligent, judgy, and possibly racist. And finally they overcharged us.
