“Great grilling at Dolphin House”
Reviewed 2 September 2010

First and foremost, this hotel has been included in the portfolio of a mayor italian tour operator, so expect more than 90% of guests to be italians.

We've been there end of August grilling ourselves at 43 celsius, luckily the place is windy therefore idling on the beach has been a pleasure.
The breeze unfortunately can turn the sea quite hard to swim into sometimes, anyhow the well built pier helps you to dive beyond the beautifull reef into a crystal clear Red Sea.
The whole hotel, in my opinion, is a little bit outdated and would need a renovation soon, the rooms are indeed huge and clean, if you need the AC to sleep do not forget earplugs.
The cleaning service is very good and the guys are always nice and smiling.
There is only one main restaurant, but on the beach, the bar serves a light lunch at noon and a la carte service at evening (booking required), the overall food quality is quite good, since the majority of guest are italians they managed to have a pasta corner and a pizza oven (only at dinner) so there are plenty of choices available.
Right outside the hotel you may find some shops and a nice beduin tent if you want to sip a mint tea or a coffee or smoke hookah (with very hygenic disposable pipes).
Since the hotel is located in the middle of nothing, there are several day tours availables, you may visit turtle bay, hamata islands or sharm el luli otherwise you can ride a jeep or quad or dromedary or arab horse and pay a visit to a beduin village.
We decided to visit Luxor instead, there is a new road crossing the desert that will take you to Karnak and Luxor temples and the Kings Valley in some 4 hours by bus (it's worth the journey).
The "animation" staff is 100% italian, I really appreciated them especially Terenzio and Achille, but I might understand it's not enjoyable at all if you do not understand italian.

Very quiet and clean hotel - perfect for relaxation and lying in the sun.
In december still 25°C and the sea is warmer than the air.
