“Surprisingly Cute”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

The eco lodge is located on a higher level which guarantees the nice view of green fields, palm trees and the lake. The rooms are spacious and relatively clean and look out on a cute garden with a medium sized unexpected pool. The service is very friendly and makes you feel home. Also the simple breakfast and dinner is yummy. 5 minutes walking distance is a pottery school where you can take a pottery course or just learn how it all works, which is very interesting. Don't forget towels and if you really want to sleep like a baby you might want to take bedsheets. Anyway it's definitely worth going.

Two hours drive from Cairo brings you to the Sobek Lodge in Tunis. It is a good jumping off point for a day trip to the Valley of the Whales. The lodge is clean and comfortable, the food was OK. I would stay hear again if traveling with friends to this area.
