The hotel is famous for its luxurious spacious rooms and superb restaurants, and it presents a variety of unrivaled features; from a unique Lazy River, inviting you to lose yourself in the tranquility of a gentle river ride, floating through the landscaped gardens until you disembark into an amazing pool covering 5,000 m3.

A private beach that is almost half a kilometer in length, just to relax or to play, with “Ilios” the world class dive club and aqua center, where you can scuba dive, snorkel, go windsurfing, water skiing or parasailing. A 9 hole par 3 golf course, floodlit, for playing a challenging game of golf under the summer night sky.

Rooms are very spacious and sea view is perfect. Food is really good, Breakfast has a wide varieties and few restaurant are available for lunch & dinner with pre reservation required. Hotels wasn’t very busy but the entire service are very friendly and willing to help.

COVID safety measures are well kept in place. We tried the Spa for massage treatments and we loved it.

The resort is clean, beautiful, well run and full of things to do and see. Food is fantastic. Staff are so so friendly it puts you to shame for not smiling at all of them all the time! We felt the Aldau was better than the water-park Steigenberger opposite as it was quieter and we could visit the water park at any time with a 2-minute walk.

We enjoyed our days at the sea, which was absolutely clean and shallow. Excellent for those, who do not expect adventures in the sea 🙂 Families with kids and adults and seniors are well divided, so that all of them do not meet on regular basis. I am a coffee lover and the coffee in the main restaurant is just basic.

On the other hand, all bars and also the beach bar offers absolutely fantastic Turkish coffee or espresso made “with love”. Our “private” service Ahmed Mohamed, with his fluent German made our stay at the beach special. We had a relaxed week and enjoyed it very much.

The hotel is amazing, with a private beach to the beautiful Red Sea, a very beautiful swimming pool, a wonderful garden and many possibilities to spend the time in the most interesting way.

The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly, always ready to satisfy any customer need. Special thanks to El Nagar Mahmoud who has taken very good care of me and my friend. We also appreciated the sport activities, especially the incredible energy of Rio from AcquaZumba..

We are definitely going to come back in the same hotel which looks like a paradise.

The resort is a perfect combination of luxury, relaxation and fun.The Suits/Rooms/Swim-up suit were gorgeous, food delicious ( you can feel the high quality of ingredients) and the staff so welcoming that you don’t want to leave. I felt so welcomed and taken care of, as if I’m part of the Steigenberger family.

An ultimate gateway if you are searching for fun, luxury and comfort. Starting from the main gate you can notice how many safety measurements have been imposed on for the guest safety. Reception welcomes you in a professional yet very friendly way. Once you open the door to your room – the magic starts. I’ve never seen more modern, stylish and luxurious room than this one.

Fully loaded minibar, coffee machine, jacuzzi and incredibly comfy bed. Moving on the the food. Main Restaurant which we used for breakfast and dinner once – Good variety, very good quality and impeccable service. The restaurant on the beach, Alex – that’s a bomb. The dinner which was served to us could be easily compared to a 5 star restaurant in Europe. Pool side, bars, entertainment – I can’t fault anything. The service indeed is the thing that takes this Hotel to another lever. I’ve stayed before in both Aqua Magic and Al Dau and this Hotel is no different in the level of hospitality and service offered. Therefore my big applause and gratitude to all the staff.

Most guests leave this hotel planning their next stay, not wanting to leave we extended our stay for over a month. From the moment you walk into the lobby it is clear that you are going to be spoilt in luxury and relaxation.

The hotel is immaculate and service outstanding. Mr. Tamar runs a tight ship and his team work tirelessly to ensure the highest standards. Special mention to Sobhy in the pool bar who, with his infectious smile and excellent service ensures you leave happy everyday. Mado and Ramy on the entertainment team work extremely hard despite an often difficult task given the variety of group types and tastes.

The programme for Eid weekend was outstanding and watching a live cabaret show inside the pool was a highlight. Another special event was the beautiful moonlit beach dinner we had at the Alex restaurant, staff went above expectations to create an evening of romance and exquisite food. We came as strangers, left as friends and await our next stay with anticipation.

The moment we entered this hotel we totally forgot reality and enjoyed an amazing time full of ultimate relaxation. The stylish rooms and lovely design of restaurants and the reception really impressed us. We absolutely felt a real luxury experience with fresh food and drinks, served by the attentive staff with pleasure. Very nice relaxing music around the pool and beach with lively atmosphere from daily entertainment shows. Thumbs up to MADO and the resident dj RAMY these, guys made everyone’s holiday!

In all scales ; The best Quality tasty food , the amazing service can anyone have ,the adorable beach. They give the best service to the guests.

Their main heeds your comfort and your happiness for having a good time for yourself

The food is lovely, fresh & great choice at the buffet restaurant, you also have a choice of, Chinese, Indian, lebanese, Italian & fish restaurant (extra charge but worth it). There’s is entertainment most nights but we just enjoyed going for walks to the pier & old town. The beach is fabulous, with great service nothing is to much trouble. If you like snorkeling, grab your stuff & walk to the pier you want be disappointed.

There is building work along the coastal line, as new hotels & apartments are being built. This didn’t bother use,bit certainly didn’t affect our stay (noise wise). Overall a great place to relax & recharge, yes there are a lot of couples but I’d be happy & feel safe going here on my own. With several books loaded on my Kindle, enjoying the food, water, sun & peace.

One of its unique selling point [USP} is the beach area which is first class as is the staff who manage and operate the beach it would be remiss of me not to mention them they are very polite, helpful, caring, kind and funny, that is Ibrahim, sabry, Khalid and Mohammed were the guys that looked after us, provided daily clean beach towels, cleaned our sunglasses and kept the whole area spotless

The beach bar provide drinks on the beach, Amr you were wonderful always a smile, always greeting every one and within one day you knew what we liked to drink and when, I never had to think!! Perfect.

Its other USP has got to be the staff you are all fantastic and you all deserve an award.

THE CHEFS are so talented, with their displays of really lovely food to suit all dietary demands there is an excellent choice of food which is freshly prepared for every meal. And it tastes good too
