Decent hotel with large, colourful, rustic rooms.

Posted 13-May-2017
Pros: Convenient for diving. Near to airport. Friendly staff. Nice mix of guests from Europe and Egypt.
Cons: Beach area could be upgraded a bit. Taxi boat to Port Ghalib is expensive and not enough there to tempt one across.
Location: Nothing near by to the hotel to do unless you want to quad bike. The main attraction is the great diving with Emperor divers, next to the hotel.
Big, characterful room with good air-conditioning. Reception helpful​ when replying to email requests before the holiday and quickly dealing with requests during the holiday. Friendly staff in the restaurant.

Marina Lodge, Port Ghalib April 2017

Posted 20-Apr-2017
Pros: Onsite dive centre, although transfer from local other hotels were quick and easy. For the price we paid, it was value for money.
Cons: A variety of areas could be improved, least of all the food, very Egyptian, bland and greasy. The pastry Chef was clearly the best Chef.
Location: Bit remote from the rest of Port Ghalib, water taxi was cheap and reliable, Diving is all we did, excursions were on offer from the hotel.
This hotel tried to double charge for transfers from the very first sentence ! The general atmosphere is one of "in need of refurbishment". Food well, we were "all inclusive" however ate out 5 out of 7 nights. As to drinks ask for a coke and you get a wine glass, everything seemed very rationed. Lots of stairs no lifts. Room was clean, everything worked. The hotel is quiet at the moment with not many guests. Pools were open, well some of them and were particularly cold, too cold for personal preference, however that may be to the liking of some people. (No life guards if you have small children). Staff were pleasant enough, happy to help when asked. Entertainment was laid on every evening, although we didn't manage to attend any this was totally our choice after long days diving each day. Having the Dive centre on site was a bonus, and they are a great team worked hard to please and were very friendly.

A quiet and pleasant getaway

Posted 22-Oct-2013 on Hotels
I personally liked the Marina Lodge for its simple and aesthetically pleasing features, as well as the friendly staff who were eager to make my stay a happy one. The pools are fantastic and there are lots of nice spots to lounge in. the hotel is situated on the other side of the port but there is a free water taxi across to the promenade where shops, bars and cafes are. There was a bit of confusion over the free airport shuttle -- apparently you must arrange for it in advance which isn't easy. i advise you to email the hotel through the Hotel.com website.

Albergo pulito si mangia bene

Posted 06-Mar-2017
Albergo adatto ad un piacevole relax unico problema è il wi-fi che spesso nn funziona,ma quando ci si riesce a collegare i luoghi dove prende sono esclusivamente il bar e la holl le camere nn sono coperte e neanche la spiaggia,nel complesso il giudizio è positivo

Fantastisk personal

Posted 02-Jan-2016 on Hotels
Riktigt trevlig vecka på detta hotell. Personalen var väldigt trevliga och gjorde allt man kan tänka sig för att det skulle bli bra. Vi blev till exempel uppgraderade till större rum med stor balkong. Städningen var bland det bästa vi sett. Aktiviteterna på detta hotel får också bästa betyg genom att man jobbar med en av de bästa dykföretagen - Emperor Divers - mycket bra service. Maten var helk OK. Någon dag lite sämre och vissa dagar fantastiskt gott. Även här stor eloge till personalen - alltid med ett leende gjorda man sitt bästa. Magen ok på alla i familjen hela veckan - vilket nog är en bra indikation på att hygienen i köket är mycket bra. Trots detta ingen 5:a. Internet var väldigt dåligt. Belysning var dåligt underhållen och det var massor av lampor som inte fungerade. Vi betalade för all inclusive men det var lite för många saker som inte ingick för att detta ska få full poäng. Dessutom var det allmänt lite trist och slitet i just baren. Många glas som var slitna och smutsiga (svårdiskade ?) läget på "fel sida" av hamnlagunen var rätt OK - blir ju lugnt och skönt - det finns en vattentaxi (ingår ej - 10 EGP per väg) som gick varje timma och då var man mitt i smeten på 10 minuter. Stranden OK men liten bit att gå (500 meter) och för att komma ut och snorkla får man gå över revet. Sammanfattat ett bra hotell som ganska enkelt skulle kunna bli en 5:a med lite jobb med vissa detaljer

OK stay

Take the full board deals, much better. A lot of value for your money. The hotel is OK, nothing more nothing less. The food is not very good. Staff not very friendly. Location is OK. I would come back

Cheap accommodation - but you get what you pay for

Posted 13-Dec-2015 on Hotels
Marina lodge was very basic. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable but the food was below average. Fully inclusive meant that you had to select from a range of poor quality drinks and meals and anything decent cost extra. The service was poor and the staff did not speak much English. The transfers to port ghalib were at strange times so you had to pay for a water taxi across. The hotel taxi service told us it was impossible to walk to marsa maburak (a great snorkeling beach) and that we had to pay 30 euros for a transfer - the transfer was 5 minutes and some other guests let us know that it was an easy 40 minute walk from the hotel! However if you are looking for cheap accommodation close to the dive centers and some great snorkel spots this is a good hotel to choose.
