Sentido Oriental dream resort - port ghalib nearby?

5 of us, (all being students) Are looking to stay at the Oriental dream resort this summer, we've got a cheap deal on it...and to be honest, it looks lovley!

As im sort of "in charge" of organising, I really want to make sure we all have a good time and were not...bored?

Many reviews say that there is nothing surrounding the hotel and its on its own..but ive recently read that port ghalib is nearby? google maps says a 20minuite walk? Is that right?

Also, if anyone has been to the hotel, and knows of good things to do there please let me know, that would be great! :) Were interested in snorkeling mainly! but anything fun, Im up for!

The Sentido Oriental Dream Resort is located about mid-way between El Quseir and Port Ghalib the distance is about 35 km each way or 25 minutes by car. The hotel is indeed on its own. I suppose you have read the reviews for the hotel here on TA you will find them under the Marsa Alam forum.

El Quseir is an Egyptian working town there are no bars and no alcohol ! Port Ghalib is a new tourist development with hotels, restaurants and bars serving alcohol, it's not all completed yet.

Forget it. We are just back from Sentido since yesterday and it is a 30min taxi drive to port ghalib (40 euro return; 25euro/single way) Now, Port Ghalib is a nice place for a stroll. Massive amount of money has been invested and plenty of yachts are docked there. We also visited Port ghalib two years ago when we stayed at Fayrouz Three Corners and we thought that Port Ghalib was really gonna kick off mad, and become a vibrant place. Hence, the fact we went back last wednesday (during the day) and what did we see; there wasn't a single soul there, except for the people working there. We had planned to stay there for three hours, but after a good hour i had more or less seen the place in detail. Concerning Sentido, it is a nice place to chill and there is a sort of nightclub on-site. Good luck
