great services, well trained staff, very clean, nice pools (one pool only for adult) but

- poor diner option at the hotel: buffet (25 dinar per person, expensive, in a very noisy place with a lot of people, some people take their dessert and meat at the same time to be sure to have enough, they were right to do so: when I came for some desserts, some were already finished and not replaced!) Or there is an italian restaurant, very expensive too, empty because a bit over fancy (waitress all over you all the time...)

the best is to go out at the marina nearby where you have 2 little restaurans, way cheaper, and really good

- We were chocked by the treatment given to cats:
because they were some cute kittens at the hotel, very pleasant for our children who really enjoyed them.
Staff in front of you seem nice with them. But once we saw a member of the staff, in the garden, grabbing a small kitty to put him in a box. He said he was going to put him back on the street (where there is nothing but desert and highway!). Our children were sad, those cats were not disturbing anyone, enjoying shadow and avoiding the hostel to have rats (who are everywhere when you leave the hostel)
Not very nice.

- Very very bad wifi

Had a family room with our three small daughters that was perfectly comfortable. Service was generally very friendly and in some instances wonderful with a lot of fuss made over our baby daughter and one of the chefs making her special meals three times a day without us having to prompt him. Food was good across the board and the Casalinga restaurant really excellent.

The diving was also good on the house reef and the diving staff very friendly and professional.

My only criticism is that some parts of the hotel need a bit of maintenance. Lots of areas of the pool tiling is coming off and some tiling in the corridors is loose too. Sort that out and we are back to 5 stars.

I recommend it for families.

We stayed here as part of an Exodus cycling trip. To be honest I was ill while we stayed here from a bug many of us on the trip had picked up along the way (nothing to do with this hotel), so I spent most of my time in the room being ill.

When we arrived we were checked in as a group and they handed out our room keys to us. We went to the room got changed and then went to the pool to chill out. A waiter asked if we wanted some drinks. As I felt a bit odd I just had a water while my Wife had a beer. The drinks quickly arrived and we signed the chit. A few minutes later they came back to say we couldn't sign for drinks as we had not given a credit card when we checked in. They insisted on us going to our room and getting our cards and then going to reception (which we refused to do). This went on for quite a while and we just kept refusing to do as they asked and that we would go to reception on the way back to the room - which is what we did. We could have done with out the constant hasstle. All they need ed to do was get this sorted out at check in. Not good enough. A lot of Jordanians were staying at the hotel, so perhas they have problems with non-payment.

After that I started to get ill and really only saw the inside of our room, which was very nice. The facilities seemed good. However. the whole thing was a bit to 'resorty' for my taste.

Mind you, if you are going to be horribly ill for 36 hours in the middle east, this is a really comfortable place to do it.

I was here with my family 2 years ago,
this time We booked a stay for weekend getaway,
it was truly a wonderful stay!
The hotel itself is chic and stunning,
with good facilities and beautiful surroundings.
There are several pools and jacuzzi (for sure kids will love it),
the beach is very pretty with lots of beautiful coral reef.
We booked a snorkeling trip from Sinai diving center,
they took us by boat to some great spots for snorkeling,
it was really beautiful and we enjoyed a lot!

Staffs there were extremely friendly!
Mr. Ibrahim&Obaide from the reception are really nice and helpful.
And Mr. Amer (I suppose the manager) he was unbelievably nice and friendly,
made us feel like really relaxing there.
The food there was great also, open buffet with various choices.
The sum, we enjoyed a lovely and forgettable holiday there,
and for sure, we will visit there again!

Hi,

This movenpick hotel has a great dive shop. it is very economical and takes people to great spots in the red sea. I dived and I also did snorklng with my son both through the same dive shop. I recommend them highly if you wish to do diving. Also the kids loved the water slides. They are small, but out of all the 5 stars we stayed, this is the one they will never forget. We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and only stayed one day at the hotel, while the other day we spent viisting sites. We had a great time.
