Reviewed 29 November 2010

Have just returned from Fantazia Resort, stayed in from 21 to 28 November, 2010. Just me and my wife. Before going there, have learned many reviews and must say most of them respond to the truth, real nice ones. Splendid hotel, very clean, welcome stuff, really good food and incredible house reef!!! We had been in Egypt for three times before that (Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh, Marsa Alam - Akassia Swiss Resort), but that reef and beach is the best seen (amongst Red Sea ones)! However, some plastic staff may be seen in waters after a remarkable high-tide and wind! So, personally, felt myself careful to take some of them out ot the shoresea (around the jetty) sometimes. Anyway, recommend this hotel for relaxed and calm vacation, snorkel-lovers (can not say anything about divers, but they seemed to be also satisfied) and couples!

Reviewed 3 August 2010

The grounds are lovely and the pool is amazing. it's defintiely a nice spot to spend all day by the pool.

The rooms are large and the bathrooms are spacious. the beds are big and comfortable. the rooms are not luxurious by any means, but they are ok and at least they are not cramped.

The service in the restaurant is very good. The servers are all very friendly and made us feel right at home.

The snorkeling right off of the jetty is very good, though the light changes alot throughout the day, so I'd recommend going snorkeling in the morning.

There were several things that were really disappointing about the resort:

The "mini-bar" in the room is a refrigerator that is stocked with ONE 1.5 liter bottle of water per day. there were three of us staying in this room and clearly 1.5 liters of water is not enough for three people even when you're not in a desert climate. Even though the Fantazia Resort is "all-inclusive," extra water costs extra $.

My husband and I both got food poisoning during our stay. :(

The first room we were in was near the outdoor theater. The theater starts blaring very loud music at 10 and ends..... around 11:30, give or take. Everything in our room was literally shaking on our second night there and when we opened the door to see why the music was turned up so INCREDIBLY LOUD, there was not even anyone AT the theater. the lights were off and the music was BLASTING! Management seemed completely surprised by this when we asked to move the next day. I cannot believe we were the only ones bothered by this. Dont stay in building 12 unless you want to do the late night thing.

The service at the pool bar is good, but the other bars take a very long time and the swim-up bar is hardly ever staffed. And the mixed drinks are amazingly inconsistent. YOu will never get the same drink twice!

Like I said, the pool is very nice, the staff is friendly and the rooms are not small, but I dont think that this was a good value for $ at all and we would not stay there again.

Dear bonsai35,

thank you for choosing our resort for your holidays and for posting your review.
We are very glad to have your feed back and I am sorry that you had some issue you did not like and somehow effected your holidays and for this i apologies.
I would like just to clarify a few point mentioned in your review.
1) the minibar is not part of the all inclusive formula and we deliver every day a large bottle of water to the room, in case is not enough you just need to ask and extra water will be delivered. We never advertised in our AI FORMULA that the minibar is included, can be stocked with your favorites drinks at any time upon request and against charge.
2) concerning your complain about the loud music in the theater you are right from 9pm till 11pm we have the animation show going on and if you are staying in the room in block 1 you can hear the music. We are a resort and we propose to our guests entertainment which also includes night show. I am sorry that it disturb you and we change your accommodation, other people like the music and like the show, unfortunately we do not know who likes what when we receive the reservation. We would appreciate, as many of our guests do, to receive a request in advance it will definitely help us to provide you the best available accommodation according to your wish.
3) our pool bar is normally staffed from 10am till sunset but i will investigate the matter and take all the necessary action to correct the mistake.
Thank you again for choosing Fantazia resort and hope you will change your mind about a future stay in our resort.
Kind regards
Mauro Bortolotti and the Team of Fantazia resort
