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...

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!

Best hotel ever”
I think that Kempinski soma bay is one of the best beach hotels in Egypt.Fabulouse grounds,best beach and food is very good
Lots of Sunshine”
It was just okay. The food as good, but not amazing. Same for the staff.
a very nice stay in Soma Bay”
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.
Amazing pools, lagoons, and beach”
Very relaxing and romantic. Loved the wide and amazing variety of swimming pools. Amazing view from the room terrace
Amazing, all-inclusive resort in a quiet bay area.”
Absolutely amazing. Staff was great, pool is great, beach is great. I was charged to have a guest. Also, be aware you will pay a lot for food and drinks. I was on a bit of a budget and did not factor those parts into my stay.
Five Star Hotel with a Sunny Attitude”
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.
breath taking view and the room was unbelieveable!”
the lobby,is verry beautiful,and a great welcoming! the after the tour,they take you to the room, splendid room,great view,the bathroom,fantastic,free drinks in the minibar,the bed was even better then home. everything is present,you can do snorkling,diving,sailing,surfing and more...,also the water aerobic in the pool was good. quiet place to sleep,and then breakfast..... even champagne,and everything you think of is there and presentation,subliem during the day they coma with water and fruit. i had an amazing time and i will go back.
Excellent stay but a bit on the expensive side”
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.
Excellent stay but a bit on the expensive side”
This was a one day extension of my stay, check my other review for more details. In short, we really enjoyed it.
Exceptional services at excellent hotel ”
The hotel is located at a beautiful beach , has multiple swimming pools and provides an excellent service .
Emplacement idéal pour aller snorkler ”
Entrée magnifique, personnel désorganisé mais attentionné, nourriture magnifiquement présentée mais assez décevante en général, plutôt haut de gamme pour l'Egypte. Propreté impeccable. Calme et reposant au milieu du désert avec pas mal de facilités pour le sport et comparé à l'effervescence du Caire et l'architecture peu avenante de Hurgada.
Excellentes prestations et personnel prévenant”
Hôtel offrant d'excellentes prestations, personnel prévenant et efficace, équipements de très bonne qualité. Assurément l'une des meilleures adresses de la région.
Tres bon hotel pour le restaurant et activités ( kite, planche a voile) attention quand meme aux chambres et bien demander une vue mer car les vues mer vendues sont parfois des vues du mur du voisin! Bon sejour si l'on souhaite rester dans l'hotel mais tout coute très cher si l'on souhaite sortir de l'hotel
Magnifique hôtel en bord de mer”
chambres spacieuses, très propres, service impeccable. restaurant plus que parfait. piscine extraordinaire. plage magnifique. il y a un club enfant. une salle de sport bien équipée. des courts de tennis : payants...dommage simplement que l'hôtel n'était pas assez fréquenté ce qui fait que les activités proposées par l'hotel ne pouvaient avoir lieu. idéal couple et famille mais pas pour les fêtards (pas de discothèque). l'hôtel a une architecture mauresque raffinée et de bon goût. a mon avis, le plus bel hôtel de soma bay.
Tolles 5 Sterne Hotel direkt am Meer”
die lage des hotels an der soma bay ist einzigartig schön, der feine sandstrand sowie das direkt sowie das nur 100 meter entfernte hausriff laden zum sonnenbaden, schwimmen, schnorcheln und tauchen ein. aufgrund des permanent wehenden windes ist auch wassersport in der ebenfalls direkt angeschlossenen wassersportbasis nur zu empfehlen.
