“Great hotel and holiday”
Reviewed 15 February 2009

I stayed at the Sultan Bay hotel for a one week. Enviroment was very peaceful and nice at those days. I recommend El Gouna if you are looking for peaceful child-friendly holiday. El Gouna is also good place if you want to relax without noise and young partypeople. Zeytona beach is also free for Sultan Bay customers and it is a nice place to spend day in the sun. You get there by boat, from SB hotel's poolarea.

The staff in the hotel is very friendly. There is also so many policemen that you never have to be a scared of anything. Rooms are very nice and tidy. The restaurant is nice too and food was good. In the hotel, there is a one souveniershop and if you go there, tell Maged that finnish girl, name Satu recommended his shop. I really do, he is nice man and gives good prices.

If you travel alone as a woman, beware a bit too excited service. I travelled alone as a woman and were bit scary how men would treat me there. Beacuse it's a muslim country. I can say fine. Few men were a little bit too helpful or they would have liked to be. You just have to be straight with them if you don't want to play around. I was left alone when I told that I am just in the hotel having vacation, not some holidayromance or something like that. Men there are very interested women from Europe. If you smile to them they take that as a opening conversation. And they want to know everything about you.

Anyway I liked the place and learned so much about the culture and how people act there. Few times we got cheated. So don't pay from anything you don't get right away. And when you give 50 LE for example to the taxidriver, make sure that you and the driver both see the bill at the same time. Sometimes they show you 50 piaster bill and say that this is the one that you gave me not 50 LE bill. They had changed the bill so quickly that you don't even realize that. Prepare also that not every trip go as planned.

Just returned one week ago from a lovey vacation i spent there with my husbend on HB basis, everything was really good and we were very lucky as the weather was sunny and really perfect.
Our room was with a lovely view on the lack and restaurant, and food was really good with different varaities and really helpfull staff. We had fun and enjoying these shows they held for a belly dancer and folklorik dancing.
We spent a full day in the see on a yacht enjoying snorkling and swimming with dolfines.
everything was really good, only one thing happened made me really disappointed and angry, the day we spent on that yacht was with a group of decent foreigners that we really enjoyed their company, we were the only egyptian couple, the really bad thing is that the guide guy was only interrested into helping and advising and taking good care only of them, didn't give us any attention even to get us the snorkling equipements or to advise on how we will use it as it was my first time. Although the trip coordinators working individualy all over elgouna hotels they just have a place on Zaytona island to make their deals. But in the same time it's partially a hotel reposibility because they let them deal with sultan bey hotel residents and all should equally get the same services.
everything else was relaly perfect.

  • Liked — room view, food.
  • Disliked — room service guys was not doing their best in cleaning the room, it just was OK

Reviewed 12 April 2008

We have previously stayed at the Sheriton in El Gouna and loved the decadent luxury but disliked the stuffy formallity and the prices.

Sultan Bey is perfect - it combined value for money, (at least we could afford to use the mini bar) friendly efficient service and perfect location right in the heart of Downtown next to the totally 'chill out' Clubhouse. The rooms were adequate with lovely balconys - on the down side the beds and pillows are really hard but you do get used to them after a few days. I will definitly be returning soon
