1) the most important thing is the sea - very close + for those who have a convenient beach with children - a lot of different fish, you can swim with masks and admire!
2) food - at the highest level, all dishes are different - fish, seafood, meat, pastries - thank you very much to the chefs! I was very worried about the children, how their stomachs would perceive, but everything went off with a bang : )
3) the pleasant thing was that at the reception on the day of arrival they presented a local SIM card with the Internet.
4) the territory of the hotel is green, gardeners worked on it all the time
5) the room was cleaned daily
6) the staff is very polite, friendly, almost all Russian speakers. I would especially like to highlight the waiter with blond hair (unfortunately, they did not ask his name), he was always prompt, he found a common language with all the children.
We will return to this hotel as soon as possible! Recommend for family vacation!
The best vacation is when you don't know where the administration and the hotel doctor are, because there is no reason to look for them. That's exactly what happened this time around.
Before the trip, they read different reviews, of course, they were ready for unexpected troubles, but nothing like this was seen or happened. Arrival was early in the morning, check-in was fast - room 820 was already ready and waiting for guests. The room is clean everywhere, the bed with comfortable mattresses and pillows. Towels, 5 pieces of different sizes for each guest, soap, gels, shampoos in disposable packages - everything changed and was updated every day. Hairdryer, safe, TV, refrigerator, air conditioner working properly. There were 14 channels on TV in languages we understand: 8 in Russian, 4 in Ukrainian and 2 in Polish. There was a tea and coffee set, but we didn't need it. There are a lot of outlets, there were no issues with recharging gadgets.
There were no interruptions in water supply, there was always cold water and hot water.
You won't leave hungry - this is definitely not about eating at Nubian. Huge thanks to the chefs! There was a lot of variety and delicious food. For lunch and dinner every day they cooked 3-5 dishes on the grill, I never saw burnt or overcooked food. Grill - this is in addition to the already prepared assortment of fish and meat dishes in the main hall of the restaurant. Fresh vegetables in a large assortment all the time, pickled too. Seasonal fruits for lunch and dinner are always in abundance, except for papaya and dates. Seafood in different cooking options: white and red fish, squid, mussels, octopus, shrimp, crabs. And how many delicious meats they can cook here!
And grilled lamb, and lamb, and chickens - either crispy breaded, then battered, then stuffed, then chicken chops, then roll, and beef, and veal in different versions - then a steak, then boiled pork, then a pie . . And what a delicious duck with oranges! Desserts - a special praise - and beautifully decorated, and not the same type, and delicious! I didn’t manage to try everything, but I tried) Thank you that the chefs took care of our figures in advance and the desserts were created in portions not large. Restaurant service is another good reason to praise. Waiters quickly serve, instantly clean dirty dishes, help parents with children, elderly guests. If it happened that a lot of people came at the same time, the number of attendants increased sharply. Even those who previously only kept order and gave orders to the rest were connected.
Is this an indicator of excellent service - maximum attention to guests!
The site of the hotel is beautiful and clean everywhere, a lot of interesting plants are planted, at least conduct excursions) A huge number of photographs with beautiful views were taken.
The animation team does not let you get bored - super fun organizes leisure time for both children and adults! Perhaps, at the age of 65, I don’t need so much fun, but the younger ones were definitely interested in it, and I will advise my children and grandchildren to have fun here.
The beach is not small, sandy, but there are coral remnants in the coastal zone, shoes are needed. In November there were enough sunbeds for everyone and always, even in the morning, at least at noon, but some guests still occupied out of habit in advance) The weather turned out to be beautiful: in the afternoon + 27-31, water + 26-27, there was no strong wind, the red flag was hung out for a short time , you could swim every day, if not in the morning, then in the afternoon.
We did not see turtles and dolphins, but we saw plenty of different fish. The bar on the beach quenched the thirst of the afflicted: drinks, cocktails, beer, ice cream, coffee - choose according to your age and taste. Cleanliness is constant from early morning until evening.
For the first time we went for 14 nights and, honestly, we were afraid that this was a lot. But it turned out that we were worried in vain - we had a very good rest! Check-out from the rooms is standard at 12 noon. Suitcases and other luggage are tagged with the number of residence and taken to the storage room. Wristbands are not cut off, beach towels can be left and you can continue to use all hotel services, except for accommodation, until the transfer arrives at the airport.
We have never had such a good time! For the second week I have been posting photos on Inctagram to show and tell everyone about the wonderful Nubian hotel, where there were no reasons to be upset on vacation.
This review is purely personal, not advertising and not custom-made, real pleasant days of rest in the hotel are the reason for this, and many, many photos on my page zarica_semicvetik are proof of this.
The territory is very well-groomed and also clean, the gardeners worked constantly.
An artificial river flows near the bungalow, it is very beautiful, but there are mosquitoes, take a spray with you. The beach was cleaned, there were enough sunbeds for everyone. There are lagoons for small children, and for those who do not like the pier and great depth. The only thing is that every day there were high and low tides. The animation was at a high level, it was interesting and fun for everyone, the animator Nastya did an especially good job. There was also a foam party and a "Gala" dinner. There are two hotels on the territory of the Nubian Island Hotel and the Nubian Village Aqua Hotel, which makes it convenient to use the pools, slides and the beach of both hotels, and you can only take drinks from your hotel, which is not convenient, especially when you are lying on the pool or beach of another hotel, it is reasonable it would be to combine it, and not drive the tourist to your hotel, the drinks are the same everywhere. By the way, coffee and latte are delicious everywhere, in the restaurant and even on the beach.
There are no particular questions about nutrition, the food was varied and tasty, there was always something to choose from: various soups, side dishes, fish, meat, seafood, often on the grill. There are many sweets and most are delicious. Fruit is a separate issue, there were delicious dates, figs, grapes, bananas and even once a mango. But orange, melon, watermelon and guava were always green, hard and tasteless, we told them about this, but as if they were given them again on purpose. The service is good, with the exception of the waiter Ali, who ignored various requests and served only those who immediately liked him and gave tips, but there were also good waiters who themselves asked what you wanted and were rewarded with a tip))) There was another incident, we had there were two birthdays, and when they agreed at the reception that they would take a cake to the main restaurant IL Mondo and congratulate the child, they got confused and they forgot, it was very unpleasant, I had to go three times and clarify.
But on the second birthday, we immediately went to the Napoletano restaurant and agreed, there were already no surprises there and were satisfied.
In general, the hotel is not bad and once you can go and have a good rest.
We arrived in the evening at 20.30, went to the reception, stood in line, told us to leave our suitcases outside the hotel door, they took our passports and told us to wait. Waited 20 minutes.
Then they gathered the whole line and led the formation to settle in our rooms.
Seeing your number, there was a feeling of discomfort. They settled me and the child in a one-room bungalow with one bed. The child is 15 years old. . . The room is tired. Furniture covered in dust on the floor sand. After 15 minutes, our things were brought.
No one invited us to dinner, they themselves went looking for where to have dinner. The restaurant looks good. The food was different: meat, fish, salads... The staff in the dining room is trying, they run regularly.
The bungalow was located next to the pool and the beach.
The second day brought us a shock!!!!
Arriving at the sea, we saw some dead reefs, the water generally receded for a kilometer, there was a red flag on the pontoon - we arrived at the sea. I've read about low tides, but whatever. . .
By lunchtime, the sea began to rise to a depth of less than a meter. It was interesting to watch how adult men and women with masks, priests to the top, look at dead corals and the bottom of the sea in shallow water. There was no way out. red flag - no pontoon.
Closer to 13 the flag was changed to yellow. It was the first 5 days, then the situation changed vice versa - from morning to 13 the sea was knee-deep by 13 the water left.
The whole hotel went to swim from the pontoon, where a long rope weighs, people in masks dived, looking at the underwater world and holding on to the rope. It was impossible to swim far, they immediately whistled.
At low tide, walking over dead corals to the sea was not allowed. They said there immediately begins 30 m. Depth and a strong current can drag you to the depth.
In the priority of choice, we had the sea, which is the biggest disappointment. Travel so many kilometers to observe an empty coast with dead corals.
The hotel area is beautiful, well-groomed, always watered, cleaned, trying. Beautiful streams with bridges. The green spaces are all impressive. 5 stars for looks. There were foam parties, cool.
Alcohol and drinks are poison. All shtynit chemistry tried white wine - somehow. Red is bad. Drinks consist of water and yupi sachets.
they took a sprite - poison, stinks of chlorine and iodine, it seems that drinks are diluted with desalinated water from the sea. Beer is like non-alcoholic. Ice cream
The guide on the second day called for a meeting about the tour. They persuaded hard. Agreed to dive on the yacht "Rusalka".
We were the last to be brought to the yacht, everyone from other hotels was already sitting, taking their seats at the windows. We got places in the middle at the tail of the yacht (((. The rest turned out to be nothing. We were fed. Photographers begin to shoot divers without asking and permission. Then they show these photos and videos with moral pressure and for 30 bucks they offer to send it all to you by mail or viber.
Also, the guide at the meeting, as a bonus, offered us a tour of the city, nothing interesting. Arriving on this tour - it turned out that this is shopping.
We drove to a confectionery shop, drove to an oil factory, where we bought cologne for 50 bucks, which they themselves mix oil + flavors with us and pour into bottles. From the words of the sellers, a train. In general, after the first spray, this explosive mixture itself climbs under pressure from this bottle, the bottle is all fat and the table on which it stands is also covered in this mixture.
As a result, less than half remained on arrival home. There is no question of the sillage of this mixture at all. Generally a waste of money. It was not possible to buy anything. when brought to the factory. They tell you, they let you out into the trading room and the entire staff looks at you with an oppressive look - it’s not comfortable in your soul and even somehow it becomes ashamed not to buy anything.
Housekeeping at 3-. On the second day we entered the room, the cleaner had just finished cleaning. He began to boast that he twisted a duck out of a poor towel. Clearly hinting at the dollar. We thanked and hurried to take things and go to the beach. Without giving a dollar. In the wake of us rushed utter abuse. Judging by his tone.
The guide told us that people in the dining room, cleaners, bus drivers, they have no education and they have the lowest salary - 200 bucks))))) - they will understand me, so I asked everyone to leave a dollar. A lot of kids. It is impossible to sit in the reception building like a fan, it is very noisy, parents are resting - children are running around. And the floors are slippery. The Internet can be caught with great difficulty in the same building, well, or you can buy a card.
In general, this is personally mine and for me - we will not go to Egypt anymore. The biggest frustration is the lack of the sea.
There were three families - an ode to a family of three adults and a child are accommodated in a double room, nothing to go through - they delivered two beds and that's it, and we made a reservation two months in advance and given that we were repeat guests it was possible, no it was necessary to put in a normal room.
They left thanks to the cleaners - the child did not wait for the figurine, there was not even a talk about slippers this time.
This room key was given one, which is extremely inconvenient for a family with children, although last time they gave two at the request, they said it was not allowed.
The trash was with swimming in the pool - after two days the lifeguard begins to kick out from the pool all those who are not wearing synthetics, and I specially buy a tunic for a child that is not synthetic so that the body feels good, and then they kick out the children - go out and buy in the store, and there should be revenue in stores. Very, very unpleasant - no one warned and last time this was not the case, we were not ready.
For thirteen years of trips to Egypt about clothes for the pool - the first time I see this.
Mosquitoes - horror, asked at the reception and Natasha to poison - no movement.
Natasha, too, until we complained - every day she comes up, is interested in how things are, then we complained to her about swimming in synthetics and that’s it - bypasses, and once she accidentally came up, found out, turned around and left without saying anything, didn’t even say hello - very looked funny.
There are long queues in restaurants, there are a lot of people and the restaurants can’t cope, even for soups there are long queues, and the food is varied and tasty.
The sea is cool, the bartenders are great, we were positive and made our own mood.
It is written that you can use the territory of the Village, and on the first day the bartender on the beach refused to have a snack, they told Natasha - this was not the case.
If the hotel changes something in the rules, the concept - this should be published, we should see it for the guests, and not confront the fact in a couple of days, if the hotel level drops, and it has dropped, we saw it, the price should go down accordingly.
The number of rooms is average, but everything works, there were no problems with anything!
Insanely green and beautiful area.
The beach is also good for the children of the lagoon, minus the tide, low tide, there is also a pontoon, very steep made of metal and wood, on which it does not stagger.
The staff is very friendly, I want to note that no one begged for $ and there was not even a hint !!! ! We left $ to the cleaner for cleaning the room and made different figures for my son, from which the little one was delighted!! ! The only negative is that you need to bring towels with you. Wi-fi only works at the reception, but we bought local cards upon arrival, so there were no problems with this.
While everything is fresh in my memory, I wrote everything, so the hotel is very worthy!! !
The sea is difficult. The first 100 m from the shore are rocks, there are lagoons for bathing children, the depth is 60 cm. Take corals! At low tide, these 100 m become like a swamp. The pier is closed until 13:00. Windy. Or maybe closed for the whole day. Along the reef from right to left (if you look at the sea) there is a fairly strong current. Therefore, when you go down into the sea, from the pier, you are carried away to the left by the current. To return to the pier, in the water, a rope will be stretched (50 m). Holding on to it with your hands, you can return to the pier. But there is a different understanding of vacationers about the purpose of the rope. Companies (6 people each) hang on a rope and you need to swim around them. And this is difficult, because. decent flow. Fish, corals on the reef are present. I even saw (several times) a gurnard.
In general, I liked the hotel. But for those who come to swim, it will be hard. We took roaming (KyivStar in Kyiv (100 UAH). Satisfied.
