Marsa Alam is a beautiful place with incredible beaches and great opportunities for scuba diving and snorkelling to see the lovely coral reefs and sea life. There are trips on offer to Luxor and Cairo although they are both very long distances away. The Three Corners Fayrouz Plaza is in quite an isolated spot with only the bazaar in the hotel for shops or a trip to Port Ghalib which is a ten minute drive away.

Enjoyed the reef, very beautiful. The transfer from the hotel to Hurgarda airport is very long and tedious journey. It took 6 hours on the way home using the resort hoppa bus, picking others up. In a taxi from Hurgarda airport to Oriental Bay Hotel it took about 3 hours.

Marsa Alam is an area of outstanding Egyptian beauty. The coral reefs in this area are amazing and unspoilt. This is nothing like the main holiday resorts of Sharm etc. so don't expect wild nightlife and shopping malls. The transfer from Hurghada is a gruelling 2 and a half hours through the dessert so flying to Marsa Alam airport is a much better option if possible. This area can only be described as 'real Egypt'.

The only place we visited was Port Ghalib - very nice marina where you could go on boat trips, lots of coffee shops and places to eat, quite a nice shopping area. <br /> <br /> The snorkelling was very good where we stayed - we saw Turtles, octopus, rays and a Dugong. Turtle bay was a short walk - lots of boats went there on a daily basis. We didn't go because we saw everything from our beach, this is why I've given the resort 4 stars.

From Marsa Alam you could just walk into Port Ghalib and in opposite direction 1/2 mile away is a bay that boats visit to see turtles and dugongs. Diving school on site and there are camel pony and quad bikes on site.

The resort is mainly just the hotel as it is too far from anywhere and trips weren't on offer through the hotel, these need booking before with a tour operator and I didn't have one as such as booked online. It is easy to go to Port Ghalib on the bus provided by the hotel (10 mins), but it is very quiet and I recommend you opt for the 2 hour stay only.<br /> <br /> The beach next door has the turtles and dugong/sea cows; not a lot there but the sea is easily accessible. More snorkelling here. All in all a very relaxing holiday, all inclusive is good here, no real temptation to spend unnecessarily.

Marsa is very quiet, to be honest, other than one bar, TGIF, Pizza Hut and couple of local run restaurants and shops there's nothing else to do. So if you're not a diver and looking for nightlife, this is not the place for you. If you want to get away from it all, relax, read then recommend it.

Things to do

The main activity for visitors to this area of Egypt is diving, its whole coastline offers excellent diving sites, with healthy coral reefs and a wide range of underwater wildlife such as dugongs and dolphins. Even the less experienced divers have the in-shore coral reefs to explore.

One of the more popular dive sites is the horseshoe shaped Samadai Reef, which is found just off the shore of Marsa Alam. Also named the 'Dolphin House', this shallow lagoon is the residence of over 100 spinner dolphins. Ensure to book for this dive as there is a daily cap on visitor numbers in place.

Another top dive sight is the splendid Elphinstone Reef, the reef's underwater walls are covered with soft corals and it's possible to sight hammerhead sharks, grey reef sharks and white tip reef sharks, barracudas and angel fish.

For an adventure on dry land, head out on a desert safari, either by camel, donkey, Jeep or quad bike. Visit a Bedouin village and try Bedouin tea, ride the dunes on your quad bike or camel, explore the wadis and enjoy a breathtaking sunset from the top of a mountain.
