"The beauty of Tulip Resort is the coral reef which is worth seeing several times because each time you discover something different. One morning I followed and admired the movements of a beautiful turtle.......  The guardian of the jetty, Osman, should also be commended..... extraordinarily patient, kind and considerate and enabling visitors to see (with a mask) the hidden paradise that they would have otherwise missed."
( TripAdvisor Geremia 12 October 2015 ) 

"The seaside location is great. The beach is beautiful and quiet. There is always a free place, clean beach towels and convenient access to the sea without need of shoes for even the less experienced and a jetty of 700 meters leading to a reef rich in fish with unforgettable colours. Do not be fooled by its' length. It is an opportunity for a healthy walk and at night, all lit up, it becomes a romantic location between the sea and the stars."
( Sbillmi 16 January 2015 )

"The scuba diving is amazing and the beach allows you to walk out for a long while before even hitting deep water."

( Rachael S. 24 June 2013 ) 

"The jetty goes a long way out but great snorkeling from there and we had the bonus of five dolphins coming in and swimming among us."
( 2 March 2012 ) 

"A weary long pontoon," moaned one guest commenting on the jetty, "about a ten minute walk to the end."  

( 6 February 2012 ) 

Another guest loved the jetty commenting "The long foot bridge across the reef is great."
( Ines March 2012 )

"The nearby reef is very worthwhile seeing, and I had a meeting with a turtle and dolphins."  Strange how German reviewers make such pleasures sound strangely business like.  
( Jorg March 2012 )

"The beach is clean, being swept clean every evening and you can find enough beds and umbrellas."
( 14 January 2012 )


"We were pleasantly surprised with our room, dark woods, working air conditioning and flatscreen tv. Nice and clean and just the job for our two weeks in Egypt.  Our room attendant was excellent, our kids loved coming back to the room full of wonder of what sculptures would be made from the bed linen."
( TripAdvisor Jeff 23 August 2015 )
"The design of the hotel is very good as... all rooms overlook the sea and the pools. There are three floors and we had a room on the top floor with a balcony. Each block of three is staggered so that each individual balcony is not overlooked by its' neighbour (and) despite being in blocks with many rooms joined we found it very quiet and had undisturbed sleep. The rooms are spacious and the bed comfortable... (and) there is a spacious shower room with a hairdryer."
( Karen201211 21 May 2013 ) 

"Large room, walk in shower, king size bed. Big balcony. Room was kept spotless by the cleaner, nothing was too much trouble."

( 26 April 2012 ) 

"The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean thanks to Mohammed who also did wonderful things with our towels and night clothes !"
( 1 April 2012 )

"The rooms were spacious and modern."
( Ines March 2012 )  

"We had a sea view for a small charge but it was worth it. Sitting in the evening on our balcony, watching the stars above the sea - simply great."
( 14 January 2012 ) 


"The man behind the bar was so friendly and funny. He makes everybody smile and you never had an empty glass. Whether you speak Arabic, English and German he can understand you."
( TripAdvisor Simone 20 March 2015 )

"We went as a family, myself, my husband, brother and sister-in-law, and we liked to sit and play cards and dominoes each night and have a drink and a giggle. Each night, when we arrived in the bar area, the bar staff would move tables, chairs, get rid of ashtrays and have drinks on the table before we even had to ask. They were polite, respectful (although also) always up for a laugh..."

( Guest's comments on April 2013 ) 

"The staff were always eager to help....Thanks to all."
( Karen February 2012 )  

"The room cleaning was brilliant. The boys very nice. Almost every day new surprises for the kids in the room. And without tips. The staff in the whole hotel was really nice !"
( Christin & Rene February 2012 )

 "The service was perfect. The staff were very friendly no matter whether it was a waiter, gardener, house keeping.......The room was always clean, and a small tip would ensure great hand-made towel figures....(and in the restaurant) hardly was the plate empty and it was already cleared. After a few days the waiters already knew what you wanted to drink and you no longer needed to get it yourself."
( Claudia February 2012 ) 

"Very attentive and polite staff without requiring any tip, but you cheerfully give them coz they deserve it."
( 14 January 2012 ) 


"There are so many different foods to choose from that it is IMPOSSIBLE not to find something you will like."
( Francesca 30 August 2015 ) 

"There is always something to eat. Fresh pasta and pizzas are cooked exactly to order, omelettes are cooked to order in the morning, along with fresh croissants and pancakes. The eating areas are very clean and the food is beautifully presented."

(  Guest's comments on April 2013 ) 

"The food was really good.  A lot of chicken.  We were both there for two weeks and the food was different both weeks.  Even if you are a picky eater there is something there for everyone."
( 22 May 2012 ) 

"The restaurant served a variety of buffet food all very tasty.  Also very clean in the restaurant."
( 26 April 2012 )  

"Food is very good. Everyone can find something for himself and never leaves hungry. Deserts are amazing and almost every day there is an outside grill with fish or pork served by the chef. Waiters are very observant and fast, always ready to bring you what you want."
( 14 January 2012 )


"Should just mention the heated pool which was amazing !"
( 1 April 2012 ) 


"Perfect Wow. What a warm welcome, all the staff so friendly, very good food, beach and wow, the BEST animation team. The rooms are big with wonderful views. Thank you Tulip Resort..... best wishes to you all."
( Hage 7 March 2015 )

"The Tulip Resort reaches more than four stars. I want to say that our whole holiday time in Tulip Resort was just excellent since our first arrival there, thank you and thanks to your staff !"
( Dariusz 12 February 2015 ) 

"Perfect resort to rest and relax. Good food, very clean, kind staff and perfect location for diving and snorkeling. It is just a bit remote. There is nothing in the area, no village, no ancient sites, so no reason to leave the resort at all, total relaxation at the pool and on the beach with a 100 per cent guarantee."

( Dublinherbert 13 July 2013 )

(Actually this webiste doesn't agree on  one point - that there's nothing to do outside your resort - there are national parks, fascinating historical sites and of course the possibility of overland or diving safaris - but you may need help to visit these places -  please check our where to go section).

"If you are looking for a relaxing beach holiday this is a must !"
( 22 May 2012 ) 

"Have never spent a holiday so perfect and delightful. Animation crew is amazing, skilled and kind, service excellent........ Amazing people, we loved you Tulip."
( 8 April 2012 ) 

"This hotel is highly recommendable for a snorkeling vacation." - the reviewer gave the hotel a maximum score of six stars.
( Simone March 2012 ) 

"Good four stars not more," commented one reviewer perhaps not aware that Tulip is indeed rated a four star.  
( 6 February 2012 ) 

"Far from a big town, but enough to do, with a good restaurant, swimming pools and good service. Scuba diving, snorkeling ? This is the place !"
( 4 February 2012 )
