the beach was nice and the overall facilities were good. Very few food options and the staff wasn't that great. Our card key didn't work 5 times and had to walk all the way to the front desk to change it. It definitely was frustating. I honestly have stayed at nicer kempinski hotels at this price...

Dear Adnaan, Thank you very much for taking the time to evaluate us on Agoda. It is our pleasure to remark your nice compliment and that you enjoyed the hotel facilities as well as the beach. Unfortunately, we noticed your rather restrained rating and your comment concerning the food variety and the service team. First of all, we would like to apologise for any occured inconvenience. In addition, we regret that the key cards of your room stopped working on several occasions and would like to sincerely apologise for the unpleasant experience. Rest assured that we already informed the respective departments about this problem and will make sure that this shortcoming will not happen again. Although you were not entirely satisfied by the services provided to you, it would still be our delight to have the chance of hosting another vacation of yours in the future.

Luxury resort with nice beach and seaview ”

The resort is located about 60km from Hurghada. However, it has a tranquil beach and crystal blue water. I was amazed by the types of facilities offered in the resort. The resort is as big as a theme park and it needs for a day long to enjoy all the facilities. At night there is free belly dance performance. In addition, the hotel staff is very helpful and polite. Great job.

Large, spacious rooms great for families. ”

We had a two bedroom apartment which was good - ask for sea view. Breakfast is excellent and they are able to accommodate dietary needs. Guest services did not provide helpful information. I asked about snorkelling and was not told about the huge, beautiful reef directly off the beach - we discovered it on our last day which was very disappointing. We were told you could charge to your room from anywhere in Soma Bay, but this is not the case - bring cash. It is a huge hotel - so if you are not into resort "life" this is not the place for you!

a very nice stay in Soma Bay”

space, location, service

It was really excellent. To make it even better: 1. The tourist industry should do something about the entrance visa procedure in Hurghada. There are many travel agencies willing to provide the service (nothing else than a form to fill in) but they are requesting € 25,- while it is clearly marked that the fee should be $ 25,- When you refuse they do not provide you the form to fill in. 2. The way to the Asian restaurant should be better marked (there is no indication at all). A real pity since the food there was more than excellent 3. Only on the 5th day we found out that next to the hotel there is a shopping center. especially since the shops in the hotels are very minimal, the hotel should give better advice about this.

Five Star Hotel with a Sunny Attitude”

Friendly staff, suitable for children

We enjoyed our stay very much: the food was good and there was no stomach problems with our family ;). We were very well treated at The Laguna Lounge and the View Restaurant. The staff seemed genuinely interested to keep the customers happy! There was a heated pool - it was nice and warm and suitable for children (if they can swim!). But coming out of the water was a bit of a problem because it gets very chilly when there is wind. We didn´t have enough warm&windproof clothes for the evenings. If there is wind - which seems to be the case in Soma Bay - bring enough warm and sun protection clothes for the kids! The room was nice but the bathroom floor was very very slippery when wet. Otherwise we felt very safe and protected in the area. Kempinski/ Soma Bay area was not crowded during our stay.

Excellent stay but a bit on the expensive side”

clean, beautiful, good food, nice beach

stayed for 4 days, and enjoyed every single day! the place is beautiful, new and clean. the food was good both a la carte and buffet. the beach is clean and nice with a bar with quite a selection of drinks and snacks, you can even have lunch on your sunbed if you're hoping for snorkeling close to the beach though, you will be disappointed, no corals on this beach and therefore not much fish. but it's a good swim and you can go on snorkeling trips. the rooms were spacious and clean, the minibar is included in the room which was nice though it only contained water and soft drinks, and there's no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. the food in the all the restaurants of the hotel was good. there are three: the view restaurant that serves breakfast and dinner, there's one on the pool that serves lunch and snacks and works till sunset and an asian restaurant that was working only two days a week, but the food there was also really good. if you're into more entertainment in the evening, they always had some kind of performance going on in the cafe, you can also smoke shisha there generally loved it and will go back if i manage to get a discounted offer again their general pricing is pretty expensive.
