We were very happy with the week spent here. The food was good with plenty of choice and the staff were great, at all times. All the swimming pools were spotlessly clean, as was the whole area. Even when we had a terrific thunderstorm and downpour the staff still smiled, as they tried to sweep the water away. The rooms... More

We'd last visited Egypt in 2006 as a couple (Hilton Shark's Bay) and have had a son since then. We decided it was a good time to return to Sharm this summer and booked the Sonesta Beach through Direct Holidays. The transfer from the airport was slow (25mph) and tortuous due to the bizarre road set up that prevents left... More

Very nice hotel and it is nearby Ne'ma beach and besides the Casino. Too many attractive places. But the Kids swimming pool is not too much safe in my openion. It should be maintained for more safety.

This resort just only 4 stars, or maybe 3 stars, the room size is good but not comfortable, it looks like old rooms, the pools were big and nice, if you need to access the beach you need to walk 5 minutes, and i don't like the beach of this hotel, we got all inclusive offer, the food average, this...

Dear Guest, The hotel is perfectly located on the outskirts of Naama Bay itself and within a 15 minute stroll along the lovely beach promenade passing all sorts of stalls, restaurants, bars and shops. Alternatively, you can take a 2-3 minute taxi ride if you don’t want to walk. Our beach is on the property and as we have a... More

So first, a general review before I detail my likes, issues and tips. We stayed in the "British Quarter", near the Cactus pool as apparently these are the newest rooms. If this is the case, then the rest of the rooms must be hovels at best. Hotel supposed to be 5* - 2-3 at best in my opinion. Food was... More

Dear Jamie, Thank you for the review although there are a few points that I would like to clarify. We don’t get many people at all complaining about the quality of the food or the variety of the food in the various restaurants and we don’t need Chef to put suggestion cards out as his dishes have been tried and...

Food is very average, the entertainment is absolutely appalling, had a drink of evening time and the spirits are of a very low quality, staff would not stop hassling us, trying to sell haircuts, dinners for two, snorkelling trips, massages, it went on and on, on one occasion the pushy sales man started nudging me while I was asleep, trying...

Dear Harry, I am very sorry that your holiday did not meet your expectations. The scenario you describe is a million miles away from that which we subscribe to and I am stunned to think that my staff could behave in such a way, although I should point out that the majority of salesmen around the pools are not part...

I highly recommend this place to all, people here are so nice and kind and very professional, especially NASSEF manager of Citadel restaurant, you would feel their warm welcome at any time.

Dear Guest, I am very disappointed that you say you had something stolen from you at the pool. It most certainly would not have been our staff as they have nowhere to put such things and they are above this kind of behaviour anyway. Perhaps another guest thought it was the hotel’s property and used it elsewhere and left it... More

Dear Dan, We wish you were still here too! Thanks a lot for the lovely review and the kind words for the staff. We’ll be sure to pass them on. I do wish you had tried the ‘foul’.
