I spent 3 days at the blue reef resort, what amazed me not the relaxation effect of the place, nor it’s see view or the beauty of the reef but the beautiful faces and friendly smiles that welcome you from the first moment you enter the reception of the resort to even the ones who don’t have direct contacts with guests. Special thanks for those who works at the restaurant for the delicious, tasty and variety of food that we enjoyed every meal. Thank you Blue Reef hard-worker stuff for all their effort to please their guests and thank you for making my vacation amazing.

A homey small nice hotel to compare with big resorts. All is on hand!! Fantastic place for relax. I had later check in and a dinner waited in the room. Nice big rooms everyday perfectly cleaned. Beach and swimming pool too.Very good place for non-swimmers and also for snorkeling.Don`t be afraid of sea, a boy from staff will go with You. It`s safety also for beginners. I recommend to buy shoes into water in the shop inside a resort (5eur). Kind and friendly staff! Tasty food, wide choice. Diving center,massage center, cafe, shops - all is ok.Discreet but top security.Who wants, a whole day activities program of animation team. I was off-season, less guests, I felt like among family.

Room Tip: The first floor.

The resort is very well organized and safe. Zizo, Yassin, Ali, Hany and Eslam welcome you with a cocktail and with a smile. All the rooms are very closed to the swimming pool and the beach. The beach is like a postcard, with a natural swimming pool for people who cannot swim or want to relax. Towels are free on the beach and in the swiiming pool. High quality restaurant with pasta cooked at the moment and many vegetables and cakes available. the waiters are always kind. Good cleaning. Animation is managed by Adam and his staff, with local and italian people. Don't miss a massage with Adriano or people from his staff. There is also a diving center, with Mustafa, Mohamed Ali and Abdo: you can try a free immersion in the swimming pool with bombles and do snorkeling. There is also a bedouin tent, if you want a coffeee or tea. You can try the narghile', ask Hassan or Spada, is very kind person. Abdo, Hossan, Mohamed and Elmesh work in the swimming pool bar and on the beach. You can find some shops, with hand made paintings by Mimmo, bracelets, perfumes and creams by Mido, Valentino or Mohamed and egyptian crafts by Yasser. In front of the hotel there is the Rano Cafè: relaxing place!!I feel home everytime i go there (6 times for the moment), and i hope to go back in March. The owner also is very kind. Congratulations to the staff all!!!

After the arrival around 8 AM we were accommodated in the family room just above the reception. Family room (one with windows, second one without windows) were large and basically equipped, huge wardrobes, in each room TV with satellite, in the main room small fridge and safety deposit. Bathroom good size, but very old. A/C functional. Internet available after purchasing hotel coupon. After several nights we had to move to different room, as the noise from the Disco was unbearable. The second room was located in block C, garden and far sea view, normal size, small bathroom, small fridge, TV with satellite, safety deposit. In comparison with the previous family room - modern. Restaurant - in overall everybody can choose smtg to eat, but do not expect ever changing buffet arrangements, it remained pretty much the same the whole week. The hotel has two bars, one at the pool, second on the beach. All drinks are provided in small (approx 1,5 dcl) cups. Now the worst point: sea - there is a small lagoon, approx 60 cm deep, that is the only way to get to the sea unless you take the 250 m walk in 1-10 cm deep water to the corals, after that very dangerous walk of approx 5-10 m on the coral subsoil (you need special shoes) after that you can swim in deep water. If you snorkel, there is absolutely gorgeous coral reef - one of the best I have ever seen. Many types of fishes and sea creatures. The hotel claimed that we could use the marina, which is approx 500 m on the right from the hotel, 5 EURO entrance, but the marina was closed, very old and in my opinion unsafe to use it. Moreover, belong to the closed hotel.
In overall, I would not recommend this hotel for people, who come to Marsa for swimming and snorkeling. The hotel beach is definitely unsuitable for such purpose (long and dangerous walk). Otherwise the hotel is ok for one week stay.

Room Tip: Do not accept rooms starting with 11xx, anything from block A,B etc. is a win
