OVERALL

"Extremely clean facility with friendly and helpful staff. I stayed here with my friends for five days. Everyone was pleased with the hotel facilities. Very good destination for snorkeling and diving (the best). The room are cleaned everyday and there were varieties of delicious  food."
( TripAdvisor.com Ahmed 13 September 2016 )

"The hotel for the amount of money you pay to stay is really exceeding expectations. I didn't believe we were getting all these services for the amount of money we paid. The staff is friendly, food is good and the resort is artistically beautiful."
( TripAdvisor.com Mohamed 11 September 2016 ) 

"It's a very nice place with a beautiful beach and an amazing reef full of fish. If you want to relax, snorkel and have a great time without noise Utopia is an excellent choice."
( TripAdvisor.com Pilnasci 5 May 2013 ) 

"Beautiful mid range hotel, ideal for relaxing but not for those seeking luxury.  Perfect for snorkeling and diving.  Reef nearby in good condition....  Very friendly staff."
( HolidayCheck.com Matthias March 2012 ) 

"All together we found it reasonable for the price. We would recommend it for snorkelers and divers."
( HolidayCheck.com Katrin March 2012 ) 

"Overall good, the hotel has an old and a new part. The old part could be updated, but for me personally it was sufficient, since I was only using the room for sleeping.  I'm going back next year again !"
( HolidayCheck.com Thomas March 2012 ) 

"For the second year my wife and I enjoyed two excellent weeks in this friendly hotel. From the reception area ,bar staff, restuarant  to beach ,animation team,divers everyone made us so welcome."
( TripAdvisor.com February 2008 )

"The rooms are fine, the pools are nice, they opened the new reception while we were there, which is better, however the food was terrible."  
( HolidayWatchdog.com May 2008 )



ON THE SEA AND BEACH

"The house reefs here are paradise underwater. If you are a diver this is the best hotel on the line with its house reefs. I dive all around the Red Sea; really never seen something so magical underwater, if you don't know how to drive, learn how to diver there !" (TripAdvisor.com Mohamed 11 September 2016) 

"The very big plus of this hotel is the nice big beach with a beautiful reef. Perfect for snorkeling and diving. With such a reef, you don't need to go on any sea tours."
( TripAdvisor.com Lena 21 March 2016 ) 

"The real strength of this hotel, which is the oldest in Marsa Alam... is its' location by the sea. A true spectacle of nature. You can just wade into the sea from the beach without using a walkway.... I had never done snorkeling before. I started equipped with snorkel and mask underwater camera (which I highly recommend purchasing for all trevelers). Fins are also essential as with them you don't have to struggle so much against the current. I've seen many tropical fish in the bay including the moray eel, race, barracuda and turtles."
( TripAdvisor.com Ispanico1975 24 July 2013 )

"I saw moray eels, trumpet fish, clown fish, Napoleon fish, octopus and myriad types of other fish and all different colours...... and at one point I found myself in the midst of a shoal of at least 100 fish that seemed to play with me ! ....not to mention the fascinating reef that fronts the resort with its underwater canyon full of colourful corals and sponges etc."
( TripAdvisor.com 10 May 2012 ) 

"Fantastic beach, swimming off the beach very clean, very nice"
( TripAdvisor.com 30 April 2012 ) 

"Beautiful beach, which also extends outside the village, free and unspoiled, ideal for walks. And the sea is really beautiful, the reef wonderful with a multitude of multicoloured fish. We snorkeled for hours at just wading distance from the shore."
( TripAdvisor.com 23 April 2012 ) 


ON THE ROOMS

"We had a family room - which entailed two huge rooms with an adjoining door and one bathroom. It was clean and very spacious with high ceilings. We also had a lovely balcony overlooking the grounds and were very close to all the facilities."
( HolidayCheck.com Cara February 2013 )

"Comfortable and clean."
( TripAdvisor.com 13 March 2012 )

"Rooms very clean and sunny and spacious."
( TripAdvisor.com 30 April 2012 ) 


ON THE STAFF

"The staff couldn't do enough to help us and our baby."
( HolidayCheck.com Cara February 2013 )

"The staff of the resort and diving center is very friendly and not excessively intrusive. The animation team is also friendly and not intrusive."
( TripAdvisor.com 16 May 2012 ) 

"International animation: very knowledgeable and nice guys, we spent an hour in the evening to follow them in their shows and it was great fun."
( TripAdvisor.com 30 April 2012 ) 

"My wife and I had during our stay our wedding anniversary, the staff sang a song by Schubert - Standchen - and we got a cake with drinks. It was perfect."
( HolidayCheck.com Franz March 2012 ) 


ON THE FOOD

"We liked the bars and restaurants. All the week there were the same kinds of food but there was such a wide choice that we had been satisfied."
( TripAdvisor.com Pilnasci 5 May 2013 )

"There is a wide variety of food. All good except the deserts, for which you are best sticking to the more traditional Middle Eastern/North African offerings."
( HolidayCheck.com Cara February 2013 ) 

"Food and drink is pretty average here. Don't expect a great gourmet (treat) but at least no big gastrointestinal discomfort."
( TripAdvisor.com Luca D. 21 September 2012 )

"The food was all right and for Egyptian standards not at all bad.  Certainly no one starved and I didn't hear anything about Pharaoh's revenge.  In the morning we stood in line at the scambled egg and omelet cooking station.... At lunch you could get at the beach bar fries, pizza ( or something like it ), noodles, rice meat fish and a salad bar and at the swimming pool they served hamburgers and hot dogs. Evenings had a changing theme (Italian, Egyptian and so on)...."
( HolidayCheck.com Torsten March 2012 ) 

"The cooking is basically good and quite varied, rich in vegetables, just what you want for a beach holiday."
( TripAdvisor.com 23 April 2012 )
