This place is the best of the 3 different hotels in the area we've stayed. Very comfortable rooms, great sea view, house reef just off the beach, cared for grounds and strong WiFi signal everywhere (repeaters every 100 feet even on the beach), Emperor Diver's shop on-site. Food left more to be desired but that is to be expected in all AI type resorts in Egypt IMO. Overall - highly recommended.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the friendly, professional staff gave us every attention. Nothing was too difficult. The receptionist even managed to fix my broken camera housing.
The 'animation' team were attentive and their spoof of Mama Mia! had my face aching with laughter.
Will be booking to return soon.

We stayed during Christmas 2012 with our adult children on half board basis (NB: there are few, if any, restaurants outside of the hotel complex). The hotel and its food were superb and the beach and sea at 21C offered amazing swimming and snorkelling. There was a host of recreational activities to suit all ages and levels of activity (many free, but some chargeable but not in local currency - usually Euros). The hotel had gone out of its way for its clients to celebrate Christmas - at our Christmas eve dinner we were offered no less than 60x different desserts - some gala dinner this was. We will definately return. Note that the hotel is not at Marsa Alam town which is about 65 Kms south of the hotel; although Marsa Alam airport is about 5 Kms south of the hotel. The hotel's web site is not that clear precisely where the hotel is located and Google Maps at times confuses the location of the Lamaya and Coraya hotels. The Iberotel Coraya Beach hotel is in fact at 25.604931,34.60395 (Lat/longs). This information is important as the local taxi prices are extortionate for such short journeys and the hotel mini bus is even more expensive at 40 Euros for each journey to/from the airport. Fortunately, one of our sons lives in Cairo and was able to arrange a much cheaper taxi. In fairness this is the only negative that we experienced and one which the hotel should consider changing to attract independent overseas visitors. Overall, a superb hotel and resort to spend Christmas.

We stayed 3 nights and wish it had been more. The rooms were clean and in top condition. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was pretty good, especially by Egyptian standards. The snorkeling off the jetty was convenient and easy with a very nice reef (stingrays, parrot fish, angels, puffers, and MANY more, plus a good amount of living coral). We'll definitely go back. The beach area was clean with nice chairs and shades. The vendors were polite and definitely NOT pushy.
