We returned late last night from the most amazing holiday I have ever had in Egypt (and we always holiday there) . We were originally booked for the Tropitel Dahab Oasis and so pleased we changed hotel to go to Happy Life Village, so aptly named, & a real Gem set by the Sinai mountains which meet the beautiful warm blue sea..
Now onto our stay, we arrived at Happy Life around 6.30pm, the journey from Sharm Airport taking roughly 45 to 50 mins, we were booked in and immediately taken to our room by a smiling bell hop who showed us how to work the air con etc, our room was large and airy and spotlessly clean as was the bathroom, ok so a few have said the rooms are dated but I have stayed in quite a few hotels in Egypt now and to be frank I think the rooms at Happy Life are some of the cleanest and nicest I have seen, our room was very large & had the most amazing views of the Sinai Mountains and the sea, a quick wash and freshen up and it was off to dinner, the sight that greeted us was awesome, so many different dishes of meats, fish, salads & vegetables to choose from and a whole army of smiling chefs and waiters every meal time , the sweets were even more amazing and even after two weeks we did not get fed up with the choices of well presented beautiful tasting food, once of twice I fancied something different and it was soon prepared and on my plate, the staff really cannot do enough to look after you, always smiling and ready with drinks or anything else that takes ones fancy. Breakfast choice was also brilliant, so many different bread rolls and sweet pastries, cheeses, meats and a lovely chef who always cooked fresh eggs either omelletes, scrambled, or fried to your liking, there were fresh fruit salads, fresh grapefruits and much more, lunch again was brilliant, lots of choices and smiling chefs and waiters and Muhammed the restaurant Manager ALWAYS took time to go to every table making sure everything was ok, he worked non stop and was such a lovely guy as were all the staff.
The 3 pools were spotlessly clean with plenty of sunbeds and straw parasols if required, the bar staff waited on everyone hand & foot and you did not even need to order refills because as soon as your glass or cup was empty it was refilled, shame other hotels in Egypt do not adopt this wonderful customer service which is far superior to any hotel or resort I have ever stayed in, this hotel should carry 4 stars for services, cleanliness, quality of food. I have spent the BEST holiday by far at Happy Life and we will not hesitate to return for many years to come.
The beach also has plenty of sunbeds and parasols and again attentive and lovely bar staff, Nady never stopped smiling and we had so many laughs with him and the Animation Team guys too ..
The snorkeling is magnificent and I even got brave enough to do a night snorkel with underwater torches hired from the excellent on site Lagona Dive Centre, I also did 2 intro dives whilst there and next year we WILL return for 3 weeks so I can do my PADI Open Water Course.
We also did a Quad bike trip up to the Blue Hole, again this was awesome, we had over an hour of wonderful snorkelling and then Beduin Tea before we set off to go back to the hotel ..
All in all I cannot find ANY faults with Happy Life Village my only suggestion would be a tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms !!..
We had room 12B6, fantastic views of the sea and mountains !
