Historical Traveler Reviews Brayka Bay Reef Resort Marsa Alam
We had high expectations,as we had enjoyed our first stay so much,we weren't disappointed,the hotel was well kept,clean and the service from all areas was very good.we stayed in a beachfront room,which was well maintained by housekeeping and our evenings were spent watching entertainment by the in house entertainment team or relaxing at the pool bar,where Amir and Ramy would always make us smile.
We have just come back from Brayka Bay Hotel, Marsa Alam.
Booked on Saturday arrived Wednesday and all went smoothly.
Wir sind gerade erst von einer reizenden Woche im Brayka Bay Hotel zurück gekommen. Ich hatte zwar einen gebrochenen Knöchel aber ich bin trotzdem gut herum gekommen weil ich mir für 25 Euro pro Woche einen Rollstuhl mieten konnte. Wegen meiner Behinderung bekamen wir ein sehr zentral gelegenes Zimmer mit Blick auf den Strand und den Ppl.
War schon früher viele Male in Sharm, El Gouna und Hurghada, und so denke ich, dass ich dieses Hotel ganz gut mit anderen Hotels in Äqypten vergleichen kann. Das Hotel sieht so aus wie viele 4/5 Sterne Hotels in Äqypten und fühlt sich auch so an.
We have just returned from a lovely week at Brayka Bay. Despite a broken ankle I was able to get around as I was able to hire a wheelchair for 25 euros for the week. Due to my disability we were given a very central room overlooking the beach and pool. The staff were more than helpful and when my wheelchair got stuck (when my daughter was pushing me up the slope to the restaurant), there always appeared help at the right moment. The staff were lovely and could not do enough for you. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere at Brayka Bay and we spoke to at least 3 other couples who were on their second visit this year.
Having stayed previously in Sharm (many times), El Gouna and Hurghada, I feel in a position to compare this hotel with others in Egypt. The hotel looks and feels like any other 4/5 star in Eqypt. First the good points. Beautiful grounds, great beach, two good house reefs for snorkelling and diving, food was some of the best I've ever had in Egypt, rooms spotless. All inclusive is definitely the way to go in this hotel.
We could not really fault the Brayka Bay. We had a superior room with 3 of us in there and there was bags of room left. Had all the mod cons, TV, fridge, safe, air con and hair drier in the bathroom. It was cleaned every day and we had a spacious patio with lovely sea view. The meals were good, with plenty of choice and some beautiful desserts. The hotel mainly caters for Italians so there was always pasta of some sort on the menu, but plenty of veg, bread, meat/fish and salads. The hotel staff were very friendly and always said hello with a cheery smile. The Italian reps always asked you to join in with daily activities such as beach yoga, aqua gym in the swimming pool, volleyball and football. There is a lovely little ampitheatre and the reps put on shows about 4 evenings per week, just ashame we couldn't understand most of it! There are about 8 small shops in the complex, prices are more steep than town prices. However there is no hassle to buy. The snorkelling is fantastic in the bay. Just be careful of the coral, it's extremely sharp if you manage to cut your leg on it like I did! There is a wide variety of colourful fish to observe and it truely is lovely. We didn't venture out on any trips, but you can go for boat trips, visit the desert by camel or to Cairo or Luxor (expensive and v. long day). The gardens are beautiful and great care and attention are paid to them. There is a tennis court which is currently being re-surfaced and hopefully a pitch and putt which should be ready soon. I would definitely recommend AI as there is nowhere at all to go for an evening meal etc and AI is excellent value for money. No need to pack towels for the beach or pool as these are provided daily. The airport on arrival is a bit of a nightmare. One man to issue the visas £10 per person. We tried to queue like us Brits do, but the Egyptians liked to heard us round into one large group so it ends up a bit like a rugby scrum! Buy your cigarettes at the airport as they are much cheaper. Approx £3.50 for 200. There is plenty of security at the hotel, a barrier as you drive into the hotel, security as you walk into the hotel and a guard at either side of the bay. All in all this is a lovely place to go if you want to rest for a week. We could have stayed a month!!
