This hotel IS NOT a five star hotel, like it advertises itself as on many sites. A lot of the facilities it claims to have are non existent or greatly exaggerated. This was my first visit to Sonestra Pharaoh and it will be my last. We were constantly told that the hotel next door, 'Titanic Beach', was a lot better... More

I have been in Sonesta with my mom. We stayed the last week of February here. It is a good hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Everyday there were clean towels and bottles of water in the room. The staff was very nice to us. In the Karnak restaurant the staff know after 2 days what we want to... More

I stayed here with my son 3rd week of Feb. The rooms were clean and the grounds were nice. Most of the guests were from Russia or China. The food in the buffet area was mediocre--pretty bland. I had two massages, the stone massage was probably one of the best I have ever had- we did 4 massages between the... More

I have been in Sonesta with my family. We stayed there for 7 nights in late February. The hotel is in a good location and the staff are nice and friendly. Very good value for money and I would recommend it for families.

It is a good hotel for it's price. The hotel is on the first line but you should be prepared to walk about a kilometer to the sea. The hotel's area is stretched from sea to road rectangle, built by bungalows. On hot days such trips are difficult especially for children. Of course there are some electric cars on territory...

Firstly, how can the previous review be a fair one when it is almost a year out of date???! We have just returned from a 2 week all inclusive package, staying at this hotel the first 3 nights and the last 4 (Nile cruise 7 nights in between). The hotel was huge, but very quiet due to low season and... More

We stayed at Sonesta in march of 2014. It was a 5 star hotel 15 years ago and now everything is old and worn off. This hotel needed to be renovated minimum 5 years ago. It was not our first choice, because Sharm el Sheikh was closed due to revolution in Egypt. From reviews everything seemed to be ok so... More
