Amwaj Blue Beach Resort & Spa
Ranked #8 of 11 Hotels in Soma Bay
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We have just returned from two weeks at what can only be described as a jewel of a hotel set in beautiful surroundings the staff were always polite and hard working
The room was large well equipped and clean the sheets were changed every other day
The beach is beautiful and the bar staff Mustafa and Ahmed are a real asset to the hotel
Chef Amr in the Italian restaurant is a amazing cook
My wife had the best massage she has ever had on holiday and would definitely recommend you have Aida she's Fab
The only negative point is that one member of the reception staff charged us for an up grade (£40) that was free this money was return by the hotel
More Brits need to stay at this hotel it's a credit to the owner and the management team
Giovanni was especially helpful and friendly
We will return next year

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

I went april 2012 and it was the best hotel I've ever stayed in. It was just brilliant. Looked very posh and the rooms are very clean. Big clean pool. Excellent large beach. Pier. Nice food. Staff were amazing. Beautiful hotel. Nice spa. Shops. Took about an hour to get to the excursions though. But I would absolutely stay here again. Nabil the thomas cook rep was lovely too

i've had great fun in this hotel!

it's not strictly 5* in european (or even, say, indian) idea of the world, but it boasts a really excellent green territory, friendly and efficient staff, nice (if not very varied food), large, clean and comfortable rooms and pretty beach.

i've appreciated that it was very quiet - despite having a professional and nice animation team, if you want to pretend you're all alone somewhere rustic and silent, you can do it with no problems. it seems to attract greatly relaxed public too, being mostly a family hotel.

very nice spa, two awesome pools, several restaurants and bars, a show every evening (we've seen the fireshow and kenyan acrobats, and appreciated both).

the sea access could be better - from the beach it's about 200 meters of shallow water and coral-ridden sea bottom. but you can walk down the jetty, and swim around in deep clear water.

the staff is inobtrusive and friendly - i've especially appreciated reception's (especially Ahmed) and foode&beverage efforts to make our vacation go smoothly.

all in one, perfect first egypt experience, and heartily recommended as an excellent value for money.

Room Tip: don't make additional payments for room with view - all the rooms overlook the territory and hav...

I have just returned from 10 nights at the Amwaj blue beach resort and spa and I will most certainly be returning. The staff were excellent and they really made our trip special. The animation team were friendly and helpful as were all the restaurant and bar staff. Their English was excellent and they constantly made us feel welcome by remembering our drink orders and taking the time to chat with us. The facilities at the hotel were excellent, the rooms cleaned every day and to a high standard and we were even upgraded upon arrival which was very much appreciated.

I am very sad to be home and already looking to when I can return as I met some fantastic people!

Thank you Amwaj for such a great holiday!

Lauren

Wonderful hotel. Clean and nice rooms. All rooms with great views. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very good food and drinks. Everywhere you can see that the hotel manager knows his job! In Egypt were not the first time, but the hotel left the best impression.

We have been back now for just over 2 weeks from staying at this hotel.We stayed for 10 days at the Amwaj.We found this holiday really relaxing,as we would normally hire a car and take ourselves away from the hotel to look around at other sites of interest nearby.There wasnt any thing to look at nearby unless you took a taxi to Hurghada.A taxi would have cost about 50 euros there and back and about 40 mins each way.This hotels feels as tho its miles from no where.There is nothing to do also in Safaga,so dont waste your money in going.The shops in the hotel complex are also very expensive and have limited goods.
There are many positives about this hotel mainly staff and good fresh food and plenty of it.There is something for every one,to eat or drink! The rooms,eating areas and the gardens were all kept to a great standard.The members of staff that stood out the most were Mahmoud at the towel centre,who looked after us every day at the beach and Rady at beach bar and Omar who cleaned our room.There are a few more who worked in the main restaurant who looked after us too ! The animation team were fun and had a gsoh and encouraged you to join in as much as poss.The pools were very clean and maintained well.
The hotel is 90% Russian and the other 10% european The hotel offered a kids club for the younger children for a couple hours daily but there is nothing for children to do from the age of 10 yrs upwards! My son is 12 yrs and managed to keep himself occupied by swimming ect but there is not a great deal for them to do ,although there was a table tennis table and he played volleyball with the men a few times.He was also invited to play football with the staff at 5.30 pm every night which he loved and they welcomed him to play 5 a side,so that made my Ollie's holiday as he is passionate about football !
The music around the pool or beach was poor,as the same old selection and not good.
The hotel beach is great and there is a beach either side where you can walk when you get a bit bored. I beached combed both beaches on my walk as they have a real litter problem,with plastic bags and cups just dumped into the sea from boat trips I would say as there were slices of lemon ect washed up,such a shame and a awful site on such gorgeous beaches,come on Egypt sort this out ! We didnt do any trips as we have been to Egypt before but a great place if your into kite surfing as it is fairly windy there often!
There is no free WI FI at this hotel,which can be difficult if you are trying to entertain a 12 yr old!You can however purchase some for a fee.
We had a great view and a balcony closer to the beach end on the 3rd floor,so it was quiet and peaceful,hardly any noise.
The fish restaurant was very over rated,very little food and empty.The best meal of the day was fresh pizza from the outside restaurant ! One of the other things this hotel could provide is fresh fruit as there is hardly any or choice of different fruits! Overall we had a fab time and it suited our purpose .This hotel has a gym but too small and needs more equipment but the spa was good but haggle for a good price would be my advice ! We would only go back to say hi to the staff as they made our stay worth while,so we want to thank them for that.
