I just spotted this post.I agree with you in the lack of information.
I purchased an apartment at the Manta Resort in Hurghada and so far I haven't had any news. I just got the first pictures when they were starting but nothing ever since....
Has someone here bought there too? Does someone have more information about the Manta development?
I met with the developers of Manta Resort a month ago and we spoke about the project.
I must admit that it was my seventh meeting of the day when I met them at 10.00pm, my girfriend was in hospital and I was in a hurry and so maybe was not as attentive as I should be.
But the summary is that this development is in a "Houston, we have a problem" situation.
It's something to do with planning permission, I think. They also mentioned that they are currently changing the entire plan of the the resort, with talk of building a marina.
In the forthcoming Propertastic's Guide to Hurghada Property and Egypt's Red Sea Real Estate, we advise people to wait and see what happens with this development. I wouldn't put any money into it before their revised plans are finalized.
If I was you, I would try and speak direct with the developers. Here are details of how they can be reached on Skype:
Just don't tell them that I was the one to send you there!
