“Very friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Trip was from 21/7/2013 till 26/7/2013, Hotel is very good, lobby is always very crowded but staff is doing excellent effort to satisfy all guests, the beach is very large, while you can only use a very small area via a wooden passage.
Animation team is very good, despite a bad personal experience with my 7 year old, as they treat Egyptian kids differently than non Egyptians.
I had two rooms, the bungalow type, and one of them had a problem with ants, but housekeeping took care of it as soon as we asked.
Diving centre was very good at organizing a trip, while the diving instructor (Islam) was very young, and did not pay attention that all divers were 40+, so self (got sever mask squeeze), a Dutch (bleeding nose) and a Russian (sever dizziness) suffered several injuries resulting clearly from not having enough time to equalize pressure.
Chinese tourists are the worst, one of them spit on the floor at the main restaurant, while another attempted to enter the restaurant dressed in bathroom towel only, while there were clear instructions on the restaurant entrance
Billiards room was very much neglected, and we had to look for the entrance until we found out that you have to go in from the Café’s cashier door.
The overall experience was good, children had a good time, and the elderly found the golf carts to be very helpful as the hotel is large.

It was really great vacation! You must visit the Sonesta! All the people who work there are wonderful. Animators every day they gave their all, cared about their guests and were always smiling! Karim and Lyudmila is the best animators! Thank you for a great time. I hope to meet you again. I'm missing you. :))

It was very very good vacation. Especially we like animation team and evening dance shows. The best emotion from animation team was animation with kids. It's really great pleasure to see it.
Recommend this hotel as very very good hotel for your children.
Finally I want to see about people who present this good vacation: Sheeko, Karim and Lyudmila!!!
Thank you so much and hope to see you again!!!

Every time I find new friends here. All the staff are very friendly! Mostly the animator team who do everything for us to enjoy the holiday. I recommend for young people and families too. If you want a good holiday let's visit Sonesta! You will not regret it! :)

Room Tip: choose sea view like room 231 or bungalow.

I have stayed with my friends in Sonesta pharaoh for 6 days, i love this hotel. The stuff is very friendly, we enjoyed playing beach football and beach volley. in case if you would need anything over there, contact Mr. Hussien ( assistant guest manager ) he is so helpful and friendly, Special thanks for him! The pool is huge and very nice. there are many restaurants, and awesome shows daily. To conclude it is really awesome, i highly recommend it !
