Reviewed 3 August 2014

We went there in July 2014 with my family for diving, so I cannot comment on night shows or evening entertainment.
Room was a bit run down but it was clean. Food was OK but after 10 days, it gets repetitive... Drinks on all inclusive where really all you could drink, beer, wine, cocktails...
Front desk staff were rude and incompetent, we had to ask 5 times for the same thing, and eventually gave up and did whatever we were asking on our own. Pool guy (towels) was also rude and condescending to my wife...We were there during the Ramadan, so maybe staff was on edge during the day...Hotel mainly caters to Italians and Russians...
Every afternoon, the yard men watered the lawns using sewage recycled water, it really had a foul smell from the pool side all the way to the bed room terrace... Really gross.
Diving was nothing to brag about, the worst I have done in Egypt, most of it was shore diving by minibus or house reef, but due to wind, visibility was very poor. The only good dives we did was boat dive, but it was extremely limited as they only travel to two locations. Elphinstone is a good dive, but you have to be in luck to spot a hammerhead...Dive center was OK but lot's of hidden charges, which in the end made each dive expensive. I was not impressed with the staff, none helped us to get ready on the boat and when you do shore diving expect to be on your own...
The only highlight of our trip was a nice walk and dinner in the desert and star gazing with a telescope with a local guide. I highly recommend his services his name is Diaa Shawki with

Lets start with the best part of the trip and that was the personell. Everyone was very friendly and good in English. Bartenders are genuinelly happy, if you start conversation with them (if they do not have too many guests). Next best part is the sea. The entrance to the see is very good, you can observe some fish or sit in the water even if you can not swim at all without problems. You can find the right watel level for you without problems. If you are loking for snorkling trip, be aware, that you have to get up early to see the best pieces.

The hotel rooms are average. Although the hotel is pretty new, you can see every visitor, that was using the room before you on the room state. The rooms are kept clean, in Europe, you would say, it is one of the better *** hotels. Other tourists are not so noisy as in other hotels. For the most parts, they are families with older or younger kids. 90% is from middle part of Europe countries, the most are Italian, French, Czech and Slovak. All facultative trips are aranged by hotel personell and partners. They have their station at the beach and go around offering from time to time.

Probably the worst part is the food. The hotel is kingdom of chicken wings and beef meat balls. The food is missing a bit of variety and will get old fairly soon for meat eater. Also there is not much to do, disco is empty, sport activities are animated, so you cannot just pick up a ball and start to play.

In total the trip was very good, definitelly better, than you can get in Hurgada. I recommend this for anyone, who likes lying on the beach or drinking with friends.

Relatively quiet resort with lot of greens, palms and other well growing plants located around deeper sandy bay. The facilities like rooms, furniture, towells are slightly old fashion, but diving with Extra Diver Centre offers excellent service and remarkable experience.

Fantastic holiday in a wonderful place.We stayed at the hotel for 8 days. This hotel is really nice, everybody is very friendly. We had beautiful rooms near sea.Thanks to the animators for the great programs. All day was a programe for everybody, for adults and children! Here we spent amazing time with the best animation team. Also special thanks to our friends Roma Ivaniuk and Christian Antenucci for bombastic volleyball game and boccia game with Hany Ahmed. :-)
The location of the hotel is the best at Marsa Alam. Everything was just perfect, best holiday ever!

It's my second time at Brayka Bay Marsa Alam, where I had spent one of my best vacations. The corals are magnificent ! You can go diving from the beach of the hotel without renting a boat. They have a nice large beach, clean rooms renovated this year and very nice tasty food. I recommend you to go there.

I just came back from Brayka Bay Reef Resort, two days ago, where I stayed for one week from the 20th of June till the 27th.
I felt that I must right for the second time about my successful experience in this hotel where I stayed this year in their new renovated rooms right on the beach, CLEAN, well equipped. I was very satisfied from the warm welcome of the staff who remembered us from last year, the smile always on their face. The food as usual very testy, and my most important activity snorkeling and diving in the best place ( as I think ).
I recommend you the visit this Hotel as I consider it as one of the best hotels in the Red Sea.

Room Tip: You have to take a room on the first floor looking at the beach ( mine was 12107 )
