If you don't want to stay in a big and non-personal resort, this is the perfect accomodation for you! The owner is the most welcoming person ever, and the rooms are nice and clean. You see the Red Sea and the sunset from your balcony, and a short walk away you find the senter of Marsa Alam, with nice shops and restaurants. There is nothing Ibrahim can't help you with, and he talks perfect english, so there is no communication-problems! When we visited, his mother was there too, and she was also so nice, our kids get themselves an overseas grandmother this week. It was like living in someones private home, and you are treated like friends! The city is still under construction, but you can get everything you need, and Ibrahim can help you get transportation to anything you would like to see. Be sure you use the mosquito-net over the bed, they are biting during the nigth, in daytime there is no problem (so don't forget your allergy-pills if you are allergic) - other than that - just enjoy, and don't hessitate to ask Ibrahim if you need answere for anything! We will definitly come back and visit, and keep in touch with him - worth all the money, even if it's not expencive. We were to adults and three children (age 9, 12 and 13) perfect for us. Thank you Ibrahim, Fatma and Mahmoud, for a wonderful week!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rihana Guest House is nestled 100 meters from the beach, with a full ocean view. Air-conditioned 5 double bed rooms, with private baths and balconies. We are located 45 minutes from Marsa Alam International airport, and 3 hours from Hurghada one. For divers, snorkelers and beach lovers, the property lies midway from the most famous bays on the coast. Within minutes you will be in Egla, Asalaya, and Samadai bays, where pristine crystal waters exist, and diving & snorkeling are at their best. We are not an all inclusive resort; in fact we are totally the opposite. Our guests can enjoy walking to the town, where they can eat at local restaurants, chill at cafes, or even cook at home. You can enjoy chilling at the main lounge, get to know new people, and share experiences. In other words, we are the epitome of the small, intimate guest house, in a traditional style where you feel home. We will help you organize all your diving packages with our diving partners, airport transfers, and all other activities you can think of. ... more less
