I enjoyed our stay at the palace. The pool was clean, and the beach was amazing where you can see small turtles and colourful fish and beautiful coral reefs. The food was average. I loved the palace and sure I can recommend it for anyone wants a relaxing place in Marsa Alam.

Stayed in this hotel a couple of times after diving safaris. The hotel is in very good condition considering the rest of options with very helpful staff and good level of service. It is very conveniently situated just in front of the Marina.
