Lovely clean hotel with just the wright touch of luxury. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. Ideal situation for beach lovers.
Very relaxing with plenty to do if you want.
Great diving with Corya divers on the beach just a two minute walk from hotel
Excellent holiday, marred only by the insistence that on arrival we bought visas from your staff. Although not explained, this cost £2.50 each more than from the regular desk and in fact took longer, as the queue was so long. A small thing, but a pity as it gave the impression you were out to exploit us, right at the start of the holiday. Shame as the resort and service were fantastic. Really suggest you change your policy on this.
Stayed at the Iberotel lamaya resort for one week in March 2013. Great easy access from the airport; only a 10mins drive. Thomson will charge you £13 for your Egyptian visa which you can get 50yds away at the bank for £10 - shame on you Thomson! The hotel/resort is very attractive with beautiful and well kept public areas; amazing amount of greenery/plants considering you are in a desert. The staff are very friendly, helpful and polite. The food is okay but gets a bit repetetive over the week, the desserts are very limited in that they are largely cake based in different guises. For a platinum 4 star hotel I think the lack of proper orange juice is unforgiveable! There is plenty of choice overall at meal times; something to suit most tastes. The beer and wines were absolutey fine but the cocktails bear no resemblance to cocktails as you may know them. We went mainly to relax with some dependable sun and to snorkell. The sun was very dependable; with 30 degree temps most days and hardly a drop of cloud. The snorkelling was great too and I would highly recommend getting up and in the water early - 6-8am as that is when the fish are most plentiful and the tide is high with calmer winds. You can walk out on the jetty and get straight onto the reefs or walk round to the Coraya hotel and get in from the beach. We also took a boat trip to see turtles and other reefs which was a good day out. There is nothing around the resort - just a group of 5 or 6 hotels; the lamaya is the second best of the bunch, the Coraya is a little better. There is also an Aqua park with lots of water slides where we spent a fun couple of hours (free to lamaya guests). Overall, I liked the Lamaya resort, I thought the grounds and public areas were beautiful and fabulously maintained. I thought the main dining room didn't match up in style to the hotel lobby and entrance; it could do with some attention - maybe some new tables and chairs and a better layout for the self serve buffet. I also thought there was room for improvement with the food. However, best to do an all inclusive deal as there isn't really anywhere much else to eat out. I imagine that in the next 10years this area will be unrecognisable due to development and will increasingly come to look like Sharm el Sheikh, so if you like a less touristy venue then this will suit you. The leading question is: would I come back? - yes I think I probably would.
Stayed 19 March 2013 and have stayed here many times and has always been very good, gets better ever year however, this year the food was really really bad and made us bad. Chef Hosny simply hasn't got a clue, he thinks everything is ok, what rubbish, it is such a pity as everthing else is really very good.
would not go back to egypt started to be ill on third day of holiday. used hand gels and did not drink tap water only bottled and now we are home and we still have sickness and diarrhoea and cannot go to work.the resort does not cater for english holiday makers.
