From the moment we were met at Sharm airport, to the moment we were dropped back 7 days later, our experience at the Grand Hotel was absolutely faultless. The hotel resort is beautiful - the gardens are manicured to perfection; the... More

Had a lovely holiday in this hotel with my family. Couldn't ask for anything more. Service good, rooms super fresh, pool and beach area clean and beautiful. We loved the animation team which always got us involved. We will come back next year!

Have just returned from Crystal Cyrene and although very few English people at the hotel we had a great time, very restful, lovely weather and great staff. Crystal hotels have just taken over the hotel and they seem to be doing a lot of work to make sure it is running well. The gardens were lovely and the gardeners never... More

Very nice hotel, conveniently located 10 minutes from SoHo Square by car and 10-15 minutes from the airport by bus. The service is average, big territory (plus territory of the neighbor hotel Crystal Sharm), good and friendly staff, rooms are large and clean, food is variable. When the Muslim holidays were over, the variety of food has reduced but still... More

Very conveniently located just in 10-15 minutes from the airport by bus but much further away from the center of Sharm, though NoHo ( a morern posh shopping promenade) is really close (like 10 minutes by bus or car). The service is average, rooms are clean and housekeeping attendants are doing great job, buffet attendants are fast and even manage... More
