For a supposed 5 star resort this is honestly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, it's 3 star at best. I stayed here on my honeymoon at the start of August and was ready to come home after 2 days. The staff are not very helpful, there is not a very good selection of drinks and the food... More

We have just got back from 11 nights at Sonesta Beach Hotel. We arrived at around 10pm, Egypt was baking hot and the restaurant was kept open for us, our cases were delivered to our huge room and then we went straight to the bar for a cold drink. The Cactus Bar pool area is mostly English and that is... More

Just returned from a week at Sonesta, and had a fab holiday. Staff very friendly and helpful. Facilities good, pools nice, exceptionally clean. Food ok, less than impressed with the Italian and Indian. Brilliant spa treatment and the diving school staff were superb. Will seriously consider returning to the hotel and resort again. All in all a great holiday.

Dear Diana, It’s gratifying to hear you had a great holiday and that you are seriously considering a return at some stage. We would love to hear your precise reasons why you weren’t so impressed with one or two of our restaurants so it would be an ideal opportunity if you did decide to return. Many thanks for the lovely... More

First holiday of 2014, first time visiting Egypt; my girlfriend and I loved our time at Sonesta Beach.
