Paradise Club Shoni Bay Resort
Ranked #17 of 68 Hotels in Marsa Alam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 February 2010

Well I have decided to contribute my opinion because it is sad to see some appalling and unfair reviews, I have stayed with a group of 60 pax at the Shoni Bay Resort early November as we were in Marsa Alam to attend the Beyonce concert held in Port Ghalib, we chose this resort over other places for several reasons
1st its price is very convenient and 2nd the location is unbeatable.
I would like to mention that the service is not a 7 * service, but it is what you look for in a convenient diving resort, not to mention that what is there to complain about if you are paying a low cost “no frill” price.
In my personal opinion this hotel has a magnificent bay, best snorkeling and reefs, spacious rooms and services to the needs.
Its a great place to relax and be distant from the hectic world!!!

We knew this hotel was in the starting phase we'be booked it. This hotel could become a gem, with it's lovely beach, spacious rooms, a beautifull house reef wich can be enterd directly from the beach and the excellent diving center with reasonable prices.

But so far it lacks a few things. If you are a diver and want a no thrills hotel for a reasonble price, this is a good bet. I recommend all other type of travellers to wait and see how this hotel develops itself the next few months. Because progress goes slowely here.

After the italian touroperator left in september wthout paying the bills, this hotel is only offerd by a russian tour operator. Or you can book the hotel via Matthes Reef Divers for 20 euros pp a day for half board. Currently the hotel is almost empty. With christmas there were only about 25 guestst.

The rooms are comperable with other hotels in the area, but very spacious and clean. The maintanance could be better, ons some places it looked a bit run down although the hotel is only 2 years old.

The food is basic but OK. We understand it's not possible to offer a great selection of food with the number of guestst, but a little more variety was welcome. But we had no stomach problems, wich is good. New Years eve buffet have shown us that they are capable of presenting good food, if the want to make the effort.

The brochure says: we have a passion for service, but that is the most important thing this hotel lacks. With more staff then guests, you would expect full attention on service, a super clean hotel, good maintenance and superb food. But the current staff and management doesn't seem to understand what working in hospitality business really means. The staff just hangs around in de restaurant or terrace and even make private phonecalls or take food from the buffet to eat. To date i still don't have a clue what the other staffmembers besides the 3 waiters in Hawaii shirts were doing here besides hanging around, in their normal clothes.

If everybody is commited, it could be a wonderfull place. But we have great doubts that the current management and staff really have the will to make this work. This hotel deserves better.

Plus sides:
Located on a beautifull bay
Good diving center
Quiet (no animation, max 30 guests)
Very spacious rooms + terrace, all with seaview.
