“Amazing, friendly, caring, fantastic !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Where to start ? The hotel is situated right along side the sea and boats, beautiful ! From the moment we arrived at the hotel, Amgad and his amazing staff were there with such a warm welcome and to help in any way needed, nothing to much trouble. All the staff, inc cleaning staff, cooking staff, bar staff, reception, male and female, the hotel stay has been one of my best experiences ever, would recommend a stay to anyone, !!! Extra divers were our dive guides etc, once again, the help, knowledge and care weas way above and beyond ! we had disabled people in our group that needed special handling in various ways, the extra diver team learned these ways seemingly instantaneously ! from there on in, it was over to them, the boat skipper and crew all the same, ! amazing, have come home with some amazing memories in my head and heart, and have made some more fantastic Egyptian friends !! Thanks to all, hotel, dive team,boat crew for the most memorable brilliant holiday, we will be back, and I know I will , thanks all, WELL RECOMENDED TO ANYONE WHO WANTS A GOOD CAREFREE DIVING HOLIDAY !

Having just come back from a stay at Marina Lodge I just had to write a review and encourage others to stay there.
I was part of the Scuba Trust team, we had a number of wheelchair users and we all dive.
The hotel staff are courteous, smiling and quick to help with anything they can. The rooms were spotless and beds nice and big - room to stretch out after a hard days diving.
The food on the buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner was varied and always fresh.
I highly recommend this hotel, staff and location to anyone looking for a great getaway.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who

I have just returned from the Marina Lodge, having spent a week there as one of a group of 28 disabled amd non-disabled divers visiting this excellent hotel.
This is the second time we have visited the hotel, and as always the rooms were spotless, the towel art on the beds was amazing and the food delicious.
The last word goes to the staff who could not do enough to help , and were always cheerful .

Thanks Marina Lodge for a superb holiday.

This is the Scuba Trust's 2nd visit to Marina lodge, and won't be our last. Excellent facilities and a first class service. The staff are very friendly and will go the extra mile to make a good time great. Beautiful surroundings with a mountain back drop and right on the Red Sea. The food is first class and in abundance to suit all tastes. If your a diver or just beginning this is the perfect base with day boats moored right on your doorstep. If your disabled or able bodied they cater for all. Thanks from us all at the Scuba Trust and we will see you all soon.

I spent two weeks at Marina Lodge summer 2013, and i really suggest this Hotel for everybody.
The Stuff was very friendly and openminded, helpful and humorous.
The reception welcomes you at the first moment you step into the hotel, and then somebody helps you carrying your stuff to your room. Though it's special to find the room, you will have no problems finding it yourself. The rooms are clean and tidy, with convenient beds, a bathroom (and a balcony in my case). and you are often welcomed by funny or beautiful "origami" made of towels by the houseman (baha). I had half-pension, and for breakfast and dinner you had a great buffet ( i really loved the pancakes with chocolate sauce in the morning...:) )
For dinner you have got often fish or meat, vegetables, salad, rice, (sometimes sweet potatoes, very delicious) mixed up with egyptian food, e.g. kofta, mussaka, etc.
So the cook was brilliant all in all (his nae was hussein).
The pools were clean too, with a nice bar next to them ( the pool upstairs was nicely connected with the bar, the chairs were in the water, so that your feet were under water).
In the night you have a nice outside lounge, relaxing and drinking something.

I was also in the Extra Divers Dive Centre there, and it was brilliant, you only had to wake up and in a few minutes (1-5) you have been on the boat. The dive-places are beautiful too, you can sea many many fishes the red sea offers you. (Event Turtles, See-cows, Sharks,...)
At last but not least this hotel has got a beach to, okay it's not the best for swimming, but if you like snorkeling, it is such a beautiful place to do that there i have seen so many fishes and turtles. And if you want to go swimming, you can do that on the other side ode the port at the fish-market.

All in all I had a beautiful holiday filled with fun and many new friends.
I can hardly Suggest this Hotel!

Excellent rooms, clean, spacious with good facilities and walk in shower. Food was enjoyable and the buffet extensive. All in all good value.
However, it has some negatives: The (new?) all inclusive alcohol option seems to attract a mixed bunch of people who spend from opening until closing sitting in the bar getting loaded. The barstaff are generally surley if not outright rude and the constant music by the pool hardly promotes a feeling of relaxation.
