    Overview 7.70 /10

    Built in 1996 and renovated in 2006, the Sultan Bey is composed of several two-floor buildings, without a lift, structured around several patios. Although quite small in size, it is a welcoming and friendly hotel. The vegetation there adds a touch of romance to the labyrinth infrastructure where it is also ubiquitous. Here an ark, there a bougainvillea... Moreover, the lights installed on the ground create a fresh atmosphere in the evening on the architecture in old Nubian style. The only small - overflow - swimming pool (1,560 feet²) faces the lagoon. Separated by a small bridge, thechildren area is incorporated into this place.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The main restaurant serves breakfast (from 7 AM to 10 AM) and dinner (from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM) - international and oriental cuisine served in buffet style. A different culinary theme every evening during 15 days: Indian, Scandinavian, oriental, barbecue... The terrace is particularly pleasant in the evening.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    A private island, which is very windy, offers a real beach. On the dock facing the hotel swimming pool, shuttle boats arrive quite regularly to take holiday-makers to the seafront beach, the only way to get there quickly. Deck chairs, umbrellas and screens are placed on the ground and the sand, where you will also find pebbles and shells. Kite surfing, catamaran and other water sports are practiced. A total of three hotels share this unsupervised space. The bar-restaurant is for the exclusive use of the Sultan Bey. On the "Zeytouna" beach, the playground is disappointing and small. With the arrival of the shuttle (free) after 5 minutes, a few shops accompany the tourists on their way to the sea. Within the hotel, a few thin strips of sand on the lagoon provide just an idea of the sea pleasures to come. Also, "Dive Trek", the diving club (including PADI courses) is a member of the association responsible for the protection of submarine sites in the Red Sea.
