Travelled with Thomson, pretty cramped flight but plane decent. As others have stated get visa from kiosk in the hall immediately on the left £10 each as oppose to £13 by the reps. Time to hotel 5 minutes and although so close not disturbed at all by aircraft noise. Immediately welcomed on arrival with towels and drink and taken to room, straight forward and Stress free.
We were in superior family room, large with partioned room for children with 2 single beds. Little spartan but extremely clean and kept that way throughout holiday, bags arrived within 5 minutes. Had been concerned prior to departure about poor reviews. No signs of any problems with beds rashes or anything else.
Beautifully maintained grounds with walk around bay and good access for snorkelling and diving on site. Husband dived with the Coraya school on site and was extremely impressed with the set up. Minimal travel to sites good variety of dives and extremely professional school. He would certainly recommend it.
Enjoyed the food though l think it could get a bit repetive after 2 weeks, Didn't bother with the shows though the entertainment staff worked really hard. Very impresed with all the staff. Polite and pleasant without being intrusive, friendly
Caught the shuttle bus to go to port to the North approx 60 kms away (Forget name). Described in bochure as authentic experience. Have to admit, very disappointed very deprived area, bit scarey at times glad to get back on bus after 2 hours.
Very impressed with Marsa Alam airport. Having travelled through Hughada on a number of occasions and waiting in chaotic situation for almost 3 hours to check in, it took 30 minutes from leaving hotel to being sat in departure lounge.
I would certainly return to resort and probably same hotel again
