Nice place to stay, kind of "what you pay is what you get". The beach is nice for sunbathing. No wifi - so that's a huge problem! (It's 2020, seriously? You can buy wifi for the price of 3$ per 30 minutes lol)
The animation team is great though: very nice people, and provide all sorts of activities; from yoga to dancing to zumba and so on.

Wow what an amazing stay we had at this hotel, aurora bay is awesome. The facilities at the hotel are really good. We stayed in a 2 bedroom family room on the ground floor in block 12 which is near to the reception but far enough away to be nice and quiet, the swimming pools are spotless no grime around the edges which is good. There are plenty of loos around and are spotlessly clean. The shops can be expensive but you have to haggle the price to get the price that you want. I did find that in the shops they don't keep on to you to buy, they leave you alone to browse which is good unlike other places. The beach is only a short walk from reception. And the reef is one of the best house reefs I have seen in Egypt, the snorkeling is fab and to scuba dive it is never the same twice with so much to see on both sides, my family and I dived with ducks diving and the staff there are awesome especially seif who taught my daughter her padi open water and her advanced open water. Plus the facilities and equipment are really good. The facilities on the beach are great and you can always get a sun lounger, the beach boys are really helpful and will always help you. Back at the hotel the food we thought was really good with plenty of choice at every meal with the grill section every evening, the staff in the restaurant are fantastic and nothing was to much trouble for them. From setting out our table to getting us drinks, one night my wife wasn't feeling to well after a day in the sun so missed dinner and one of the staff plated her up some cheese and bread for us to take back to our room for her. Which I thought was a really nice thing to do. Sorry I can't remember his name but a big thank you to him. The bar staff was also very friendly to us, especially el nagger sayed ( carpenter ) we had some good laughs with those guys especially in the piano bar in reception, we found all the staff really happy to help us and always happy at the hotel, I must also say a big thank you to Ali hassan from reception who looked after my family and me from the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we went to luxor on a trip and got a packed lunch to take with us and when we returned we missed dinner because it was after 10pm but Ali sorted dinner out for us in our room by our surprise thank you Ali what a kind man. We have already been looking at flights back, we just waiting for pricing for hotel for next year because we are definitely returning to aurora bay. It is simply the best stay we have had in Egypt thank you to all for making our stay so great.

I arrived at the hotel at the end of June and even with the heat cooking I had a great time. The cleaning of the room is perfect and if you need just ask the staff who clean your room and they do everything to help you. The food is very good and tasty, but if you go at 8pm you won't find a place, for a resort like this I imagined a slightly bigger place. The resort is equipped with a very relaxing spa and a gym with the essentials inside to train (they could make it bigger and with more equipment and also air conditioning) but you can still train all the essentials. Superb and very nice entertainers (nb make friends with them as soon as you arrive) swimming pools and sea well kept and the entertainment is perfect the bar is stocked with everything and the shops have excellent prices. Pity about the pool and ping pong tables which are not in very good shape, but you can still play

We spent 5 days in July 2021. One of the best vacations with my family. The hotel is a 4 stars and honestly could do with a little renovation and maintenance, However this was not an issue at all as the rooms were always clean, the staff was very friendly and the Pool and beach are amazing.
The hotel staff are the best thing, very friendly from reception to Housekeeping and above all an amazing recreational team (Mahmoud and Ghaly in Particular) who made an amazing atmosphere that all the guests loved.
The food was very good and plenty with good options. The beach and bay was the most amazing experience, the bay location and corals on the other side were just amazing, we could snorkle, see the sea turtles and all the package right at the bay .
Overall it was a great time spent and will definitely be coming back. To sum it up, it is great Money Value well spent.

Great to be here, 12 large rooms in one building, being renovated piece by piece, large garden, well maintained.

Swimming pools are cleaned every afternoon and the filters are replaced in the morning.
We have the room cleaned every other day, but it is not necessary every day.

Food is tasty, plenty of choice, in the hotel and on the beach at lunchtime.
The people in the kitchen prepare tasty food.
Service is a fun group with whom you can laugh, but who are also serious.

Very suitable for novice snorkelers.
A relaxing holiday for us.

Hotel does not have any COVID protocols applied, non of the staff are wearing masks or gloves not even in the restaurant.
If u ask for a drink or a glass of water or anything, they just hold it with their full hands without having any gloves on , or holding it from the bottom at the very least. When I commented on this they were extremely rude.

- The staff at the beach bar was extremely rude and unprofessional and speaking about foreign guests in bad language as they don’t understand.

- The A/C in our room was not working and was not fixed during the 5 days we stayed.

- Quality of the food served is terrible besides the non variety. The snacks on the beach can only be described as uneatable except for the fries.

The only nice thing about the hotel is the beach and coral reef was beautiful for snorkeling.

* I would like to thank Mr.Alaa from the restaurant, he was extremely welcoming, professional, taking in our comments. He tried to make us feel comfortable to the best he can. If the rest of the staff was more like him that would definitely improve your guest experience.

Really good value and excellent service.
I was at this resort for only three nights and I would have happily stayed longer if I could.
The food was great with a good selection at the buffet.
No complaints about the room and the bed was super comfortable.

Service from the staff was first rate and they were very attentive and made sure I enjoyed my stay.
My only gripe was the very expensive internet charges and the very poor internet signal. I apologize for complaining to the staff about this. I have traveled all over the world and had never seen such poor internet service. After further study I think acquiring an internet service is difficult in this part of Egypt. Probably not that important if you are on holiday but for business it is.

Other than the internet issue which you remedy by purchasing a SIM card with a lot of data, the hotel has a lot of excellent qualities and I will be happy to stay there again. Just remember to get a SIM card!

The hotel is nice, service is helpful and polite, beach around the bay is sandy and clean, bay itself hides a lot of coral and colorful fishes and you can see them all the time during diving. The daily shows stole my heart. i had a lot of fun and laught.

It's always good to know you have friends out there in the world. 🌎
This is my second stay at Aurora Bay Ressort, Marsa Alarm.
Initially, I came here for the great house reef. From a beach ⛱️ which is covered from wind by a few sandstone hills you can directly walk over sand into. The first fish already say hello 👋 before even wearing a mask.
When having snorkel and fins on, there will mostly be silvern and partly yellowish reef groupers over the reef's top swimming. I saw an octopus 🐙, many sea turtles 🐢, different kinds of groupers, mackerels and many rarities which, under other circumstances, usually are reserved for divers like a scorpion fish or crocodile fish or a manta. Usually harmless, as long as you watch it and not touch it, and always a great story to share when sitting on the dinner table. Keep remembering, you'll always be surprised by nature just the moment you expect nothing. 😉🙃🙂
So, coming to discover the underwater world definitely paid out. 😃
I last time met a few people at the beach and now, we're spending another vacations together, sharing our stories and enjoying heartfully, thoroughly spiced foods, very friendly waiters and while watching the little swimming pool waves, the palms, hotel buildings, and the desert and mountains as wallpainting.
The rooms are mostly equipped with a large living room and kitchen area, so it feels like a very private, comfortable home for vacations. 🙂

Summarizing, I seeked an adventure when I came first time and found family and friends who give me a more than pleasant time at Aurora Bay Ressort, Marsa Alam with an authentic Arabian Style.

Tutte le camere familiari sono composte da 2 camere da letto (con porta chiusa a chiave), 1 soggiorno con divano letto e balcone/terrazza. Ogni camera da letto ha il proprio bagno. In totale sono circa 90 metri quadrati. In agosto le temperature sono molto elevate, spesso superiori ai 40 gradi. Sta a voi decidere se trovare troppo caldo. Non viaggio in Egitto da luglio a settembre.
