Positives: big area, nice corals, active animation team (ahmed, kareem, said and katia) Negatives: 1- rest of staff is very unprofessional, especially receptionists (Ramy and Mostafa) very rude and impolite. 2- The kitchen chiefs stare at female guests. 2- food and dining area are not the expected for a 5 stars hotel. It's normal food but not exceptional like other... More

Like most people we trawled around review sites before we booking, and made our decision based on the percentages. We arrived at the hotel quite late, due to a hold up at Gatwick. We... More

The moment you put foot in this place you get the feeling that it is run by a punch of untrained unprofessional staff starting from the receiption, restaurants and beach, they have that fake smile that pisses me off everytime I talk to one of them, they tried every trick in the book to shove us into a double room...

We stayed at the Sonesta Pharaoh Beach the last two weeks in September. The hotel is in a quiet location with nothing but a couple of chemists and shops selling tack nearby.

The hotel is located in Hurghada in a quiet area. The food is really bad. We use to travel in Egypt, and we have never had such a bad experience with food. It is not fresh and the ingredients are messy... It looks like they have the ingredients but they don't know how to put them together. We complained to... More

This is certainly not a 5* hotel as they advertise. It is no better than any other 3* I have been too. The staff are for the main, appalling. They want bribing/tipping upfront in order to do the job they are employed. They (again not all but in the main) were very sleazy, rude and did not want to do... More
