we stayed in this hotel for 8 days. first impressions were good. the disadvantage is that it is about 2 hours by transfer from the airport. the beach is nice and there is a lot of underwater life, but if you are used to a beautiful sandy beach, don't expect much. it is worth paying extra for a deluxe room, you also have a deluxe pool and a restaurant for lunch and breakfast where only deluxe guests and people over 16 can go. the people from the hotel who offer trips and spa on the beach and in the hotel are a bit annoying. we were surprised that when we wanted to buy extra bottled water, we had to pay €2 for it. the food keeps repeating, there is not much to choose from. if you like Italian cuisine, you will be satisfied, but it will get on your nerves later, as the main guests are Italians. it seemed to me that they treated the Italian guests differently than, for example, us from Slovakia. the deluxe rooms are nice and clean, for an extra fee of €2, for example, the cleaner will make you a swan out of towels with flowers, which is still a pleasant surprise.

Stayed with my wife 6 - 16 April 2021.
We came to the hotel for the second time. Last time it was on February 2020. It was WAU then. The food was beyond praise, the service was super. 95% of guests were from Italy, there were few vacationers like us.
Well, we fell into the trap of our impressions presuming that everything will be the same, or at least similar to what it was in 2020.
Service. Yes, they will offer you a room. The staff acts according to a certain pattern: first, they offer a room that is not very popular, then, if you are not a newcomer, who came for the first time, and start to be impatient, they offer a better room. Rooms cleaning is as usual.
Food. The hotel has adjusted his cuisine to the current vacationers. In April 2021 hotel hosted 95% ukrainians and rare Europeans. Covid protection measures at the restaurant, queues at the counters, staff not speaking English, it is useless to ask a person to put meal in quantity you want in to your dish, honestly, annoying thing.
Breakfast is Groundhog Day every day. Very weak. We had no opportunity to eat omelet in 10 days. There is a person that prepare eggs every day; you would stand a long queue to get to him. The rest is some kind of pastry that few people take, vegetables, cheese and something else. Insatiable and tasteless.
Launch. There are four hot courses. A couple of soups. Vegetables, fruits, dessert. Better, but also weak.
Dinner. They offer you one grilled snack, meat or fish. A couple of specialties. Everything else is the same as for lunch.
There is no service on the beach. We did all by ourselves.
I will summarize:
• Food for three stars hotel is very poor
• Queues of guests at the restaurant, personnel are putting their hands into your food
• Rooms are ok, everything is as it had been in 2020
• Beach and sun are the same, but you would sense the savings practices everywhere
• Advantages: beautiful place and a reef

About check- in we always consider the guest wishes about the room and provide the best options depending on the availability of rooms at this moment.

Very spacious hotel, with loads of green areas and beautiful plants. Good place for a little snorkling trips, many lagunas and colorful fishes to discover. The place is pretty quiet and perfect for a holiday relax. Outside and inside pools, including heated one for colder days. Food was fine, could be less repetitive. Pizza snaks available at the beach, if you ever get hungry swimming. Full variety of alcohols at the bars fastly served by a super friendly staff (beach bar was just crazy). Be careful - drinks can be pretty strong! :) I wish bars outside could be open after sunset as well.

Animation team was a true blast! Huge thanks to the boys for all the music and crazy dances, Katia for taking care of our poor bodies and souls - namaste!, Ira for being our brightest spirit and Oksana for movimento corporal perfecto y bachata! You and our crazy evenings will be missed! 10pm at the beach, mandatory!

Free wifi everywhere, however working well only in reception and beach bar area. Practically not working in the rooms.

You have to be careful when exchanging money at the hotel!
Receptionists (the shop sellers as well) they will try to give you "old" dollars, printed before 2005 with which you cannot pay in Egypt! Always check the date on the paper once you have it in your hand and do not accept if old. The same with card payments, as the Egyptian pound amount could be way higher than dollar one you agreed on.

Visited the hotel for one week on May 2021.
Despite the location is just in the midst of the desert, the territory is fully greened with beautiful trees, flowers and grass. You feel like in paradise garden and all you need is here.
Two really big pools able to accommodate all the vacationists and surrounded by sun loungers and umbrellas. Also several pool parties took place during our vacation.
Nice rooms with conditioner TV and all necessary bathroom accessories.
Very polite personnel always willing to help.
Fantastic food provided by kitchen staff with their extravagant chef who looks like natural Italian.
Many activities given by animators are really good for those ho can't just lie in the sun.
And the best is the seashore where even after ten steps in the water you can see all the greatness of Red sea with unbelievable diversity of sea inhabitants.
Take your chance to go behind the reef edge - you'll be really impressed with something unseen before!!!
And at the end want to express my gratitude to the staff of
Vivasub Diving Center - Marsa Alam, located between entrance hall and foodcourts of the hotel, for their efforts to make our excursions to the turtle bay and dolphin house as the best time spent in Egypt!!!

Great stay for our whole family.

The resort is well designed, including lots of well-kept greenery. Beautiful clean and well-kept pools.
Great hotel service with friendly, helpful and always cheerful staff.
Especially the hotel's wellness and massages - be sure to try it highly recommended.
Kitchen excellent, great menu. We all enjoyed the whole stay.
Resort close to the coral beach with snorkeling and diving environment
The hotel has its own diving center, which organizes other interesting excursions.

Together ..... we were very satisfied and excited.

All staff are responsibly vaccinated with Astra Zeneca

We would like to stay longer 😍

It was my first time in Egypt. It was very nice to finally see it. When we arrived to the fantazia hotel we were welcomed very good by the reception guys and they also gave us beautiful rooms with sea view. The apartments are very beautiful and clean. The food was good and the service was also very polite and helpful. Swimming pools are very very clean. I’m very impressed about every day animations. The animators are doing the best job to keep people smiling all the time. Hopefully we will be back soon here the next year. Thanks guys for everything.

We bought vacation in Fantazia resort, Premium zone.

At the hotel you have 3 zones: Deluxe(without kids, smaller than other zones, with a la kart restaurant Valentina), Standart, and Premium.
We were at Premium. And this was the best decision, because: 1) the room is without orange walls, new and with every day cleaning&changing towels. 2)you can use stylish restaurant and bars only for Premium visitors (also, the choice of food is much wider than in a restaurant for the standard. )

Food: the food quality is excellent everywhere. Classic breakfasts(sweet, salty). The hotel focuses on Italians, so there is Italian food, many types of pasta, ravioli, coffee is made by a barista. Two times we had sushi - fish night. Delicious sweets, ice cream in the evening, fruits (banana, melon, pomegranate, dates, figs, pineapple twice.) There is always a variety in food , you will not be able to stay hungry .

Animation: The hotel focuses on Italians, so the animation for everyone else is weak, there is nothing for non-Italian children to do here. But for non italian adults, the animation is good: yoga, darts, aqua aerobics, evening shows and disco.

Drinks: great coffee. However, it should be borne in mind that there are just local alcohol, so if you are picky about the quality of alcoholic beverages, take it with you. We drank only non-alko drinks, very tasty.

Beach: adorable and fantastic, with coral reefs and fishes. !Take special boots and mask with you!

Wifi: the Internet did not work constantly, with constant interruptions and disconnections of the phone from the network due to overloaded router. it was hard to send a photo to relatives and impossible to call. We tried the network everywhere (reseption, beach, pools) and every time we had problems with internet. Therefore, I advise you to purchase an Etisalat SIM card at the airport if you want to be in touch.

I will suggest this hotel as a great choice for your next vacation.

We have spent a wonderful week at Fantazia Resort end of March - beginning of April 2021. Our room was great in the deluxe area with amazing views from the balcony and lovely sunrise in the mornings (Thank you Mr Gareeb for giving us room 6307).
The resort is very green and is located in a very good area of Marsa Alam. Great respect to the owner and Fantazia team to maintain such a wonderful place in the desert! The coral reef is not rich and alive, but the beach and the sea are super beautiful.
The resort has been just reopened after 1-year of lockdown. The team is doing its best to satisfy the most demanding guests. The good thing is that the management is very proactive and takes into consideration guests' concerns straight away. The FB outlets serve fresh and tasty dishes. Though the cleanliness is what they need to work on in the restaurant area. Mr Pizza ( Mr Ahmed ) makes super delicious pizza from the real Italian oven. The whole resort itself is designed in Italian style what gives you a feeling of being in Italy while having your holiday in Egypt.
The last day before our departure we were very lucky to book a safari tour to the desert with Tiger, Hassan, and Patrik. The trip took us 2,5 hours. The views on the way were stunning and the company was very friendly. That was an unforgettable experience which we highly recommend trying in the wild desert of Egypt.
Mr Ismail thank you very much for the wonderful place and life-lasting experiences!
