Ain Sukhna´s strength: its closeness to Cairo within 1,5 h drive reach, while certainly not being one of the best locations at the Red Sea for longer term holiday makers for swimming and snorcheling. Good points: great, huge gardens with lot´s of playing facilities for kids including beach scoccer field, a very big swimming pool, state of the art rooms for a 5 star hotel, friendly service - great spa and very professional thai massage. Furthermore 5 minutes to 18 hole golf course within the compound.

Hotel was empty (revolution). All extras are expensive (Darts/pool/snooker/snorkelling etc) there's nowhere to go so catch up on ZZZeds or take your books/kindle. Two restaurants under renovation. Italian excellent but limited. Other food, good.

The pool was excellent but was cold and the rock pumps and lights not working. Beach was good shallow water but the sand was full of cigarette ends, yeuk.

Pleasant in the little bar by the restaurant but watch the pennies, they soon rack up.

It took 4 different reception staff to get us a car to go to Suez City, they don't talk to each other or get back to you. Couldn't get closer than 30 yards to the canal as the military had fenced it off for security. No photo's.

The hotel was so palatial, clean and tidy - everything we dreamed of and more. We went just as the riots in Cairo ended and the clientele were mostly English and so new friends were easily made. Naarma Bay was very quiet - a bit too quiet at times but it was always easy to fing somewere for a meal. Going B& B was perfect as the free shuttle bus provided us with transport to and from the resort every evening and the restaurants both in the hotel and Naarma Bay were superb. Well worth the 2 weeks and the worry of trouble before we went. Peaceful and relaxing with attentive staff. Could not wish for anything else.

We stayed at The Stella Di Mare hotel at the end of January 2011, whilst all the rioting was happening in Cairo, Suez etc. The hotel itself is very clean, however I would have liked the rooms to have been cleaned better. The table tennis and games etc are quite expensive, and the biggest downfall of this hotel is that they don't offer a money exchange of any sort, so go with either US dollars, egyptian pounds or euro's. They wont accept sterling at all. There is a cash machine in the foyer. The staff are very friendly with a good sense of humour and nothing is too much trouble. The alcohol is local and very expensive, so its easy to spend a lot of money in the evenings. There is very little to do in the evening especially for teenage children. The food is excellent, many different dishes everyday, and if you have a request they with try and cook this for you. The spa is a wonderful experience and compared to treatments in the UK is very reasonable. The private beach that goes off the hotel is great, waiter service, snorkelling all available. There are a few little shops at the front of the hotel with some very friendly keepers, not pushy at all, but helped us with knowing what was going on outside the resort. Security was extremely tight during our stay and I'm not sure this would apply if the situation was differerent. However we did feel safe during our stay. Be prepared for a 2 hour journey from Cairo airport but it is well worth it. I would definately return.

We are very satisfied with our stay at Stella di mare. The dinner buffet and the breakfast were both really plentiful and delicious, the staff was nice and the rooms were spacious with nice beds. We also tried the fish restaurant and it was really good. The hotel has an international feeling to it and felt luxurious ( not snobbish though) with the big beautiful lobby and live piano music during the evenings. The hotel only has three stars according to swedish standard but for me it definitely felt like a 4-5 star hotel. The hotel is situated in a closed village with hotels and summerhouses and it was really quiet. It has a lot of facilities which is nice since there is absolutely nothing to do outside of it. Perfect for families (very popular among egyptian families it seems) and those wanting relaxation.
