“Fab Winter Warmer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

 Recently returned from a  one week stay at the Sunrise Garden Beach. The weather was on average 30 degrees every day with a welcoming cool breeze, however quite chilly on some nights so would advise to take something to cover up if needs be.
Our room was clean and spacious, huge bathroom, mini bar with soft drinks, tea coffee making facilities and balcony overlooking the quiet pool. We used this pool most days, unheated but nice and peaceful. The main pool is heated, with slides, music and activities if you wish. Beach Towels are provided for you so no need to take your own, simply exchange your card for fresh towels every day, you can also obtain a red flag if you wish, to place on your sunbed which means that you don't want to be disturbed by the sales people,we never felt the need to use it, but thought is was a good idea if you wanted to be left alone.
Have to say that the pools, gardens and grounds in both hotels were immaculate.
Now for the food..... The main buffet restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is plenty of choice, the food is Ok, but it is very noisy and gets very busy, Elbows out, good luck!! 
Snacks are available at the pool bar through the day if you prefer, fresh pizza, fries, salad, ice cream, you certainly won't go hungry.
Try and book the a la carte restaurants if you can for evening meal, a much nicer experience, four in total, Mexican, Oriental, Asian and Italian. We ate at all of them, all very nice, Mexican exceptional we thought. Worth mentioning that the wine by the bottle offered Isn't part of AI package. Now you have to be quick to book these restaurants as they are very popular and tables can only be reserved 24 hours in advance. This is done by a touch screen service in reception, which people queue to use in the morning. However you can book from midnight if you happen to be around ;)
Another restaurant worth a visit nearby is the Felucca seafood restaurant,
It is at the end of a small pier belonging to the Crystal Bay Hotel, when you make your booking they arrange for a boat to come and collect you from the jetty of the hotel, really nice touch and something a little bit different. Food is really nice and at a reasonable price and when you are finished the boat drops you back off, all lit up in blue fairy lights, like I said really nice :)
We booked a boat trip with aqua waves based at the hotel, I have to say this was the highlight of our holiday,  3 snorkelling stops and a visit to Paradise island for sun bathing. This is the first time I have ever snorkelled,  I was completely out of my comfort zone and have to say, the attire is not the most flattering haha but I was put completely at ease and loved every minute. It's a whole new world,  the multi coloured fish and coral are breathtaking,absolutely amazing, Do it, you won't be disappointed.
Had a fab holiday, no complaints really, ideal for a winter get away. Enjoy!

We stayed here March 2013. Lovely resort, beautifully kept gardens, clean spacious room. very comfortable bed. Food OK, big choice though mostly the same items. All staff were brilliant, always happy to help, most speak some English. Took the Thomas Cook boat trip, although it was a lovely day, we should have gone with the guys in the hotel grounds, they go to 4 different locations for snorkelling, and charge £20 per person less!!! Their lunch was on the boat, and sounded very similar to the TC one we had on the island. It was my husband's birthday while we were there and he was given a cake, nice touch. If you want souveniers go to the supermarket in the shopping mall a 10 min walk. The same T-shirts etc as in the hotel are much cheaper there. Postcards are 1/3 of the hotel price just across the road. Machine in reception for changing money, excellent as you only change what you need. The 4 restaurants which have to be booked the day before are very good, especially the Italian. We ate at the fish restaurant the last night. You have to pay, but it's not overly expensive. A small boat takes you there for free. Made a pleasant evening with lovely views across the water.
The only thing that spoilt our time there was the rude, arrogant Russians. They barked orders at the staff, pushed in when others were waiting to be served, never heard a please/thank you, or saw a smile. We felt sorry for the lovely Egyptians who had to deal with them.
Would recommend this resort, it's excellent value. Be careful of the very pushy "helpers" when you get to your coach at the airport. Having dragged our case all the way to the coach, this person was wrestling cases off people then demanding a £2 "tip" for simply putting the case in the luggage compartment. We told him no and put our own on.

Room Tip: We were in block 8. It was very quiet as we were 1/2 way between the entertainment and the beach. Th...

My husband and I stayed in March 2013. Staff very friendly. George at reception was fantastic as was Mustafa in the pool bar - after 2 days drinks were being poured when he saw us approaching. Food was great and there was a lot of choice. Air conditioning in room was very effective. Mini bar disappointing - only 3 small bottles of pop and refilled weekly. Bed and pillows were like sleeping on the floor - I've never slept on such a hard bed however after speaking to George - he got the house keeping supervisor and they put a mattress topper on - much better. One pool is heated and there were plenty of sunbeds. The beauty salon get on your nerves with appoaching people every day. We would certainly go back again.

Room Tip: No lifts so choose the ground or 1st floor.

We are currently staying at this beautiful, well-kept hotel with excellent stuff and service. Extremely good family room, so spacious and comfortable that we feel home. Sunbeds and tables at the restaurant are always available!

But let me add some critisism:
Regarding food:
- food in the main restaurant is the same every day, meat and chicken dry or like a chewing gum.
- where is BBQ??
- no strawberries:( they cost $1 per kilo, cant the hotel buy some for dinner once a week??
- can you add some oriental pastry for dessert? Like bakhlava, for example. Those cakes are the same every day and not so tasty.

Swimming pool:
-the heated pool is full of dead ants and sand on the bottom, needs to be cleaned properly and a few times during the day!

Baby pushchair for rent ( or deposit usage) would be an additional bonus:)

I would like to come back here again if I see some of the above mentioned things changed.

Room Tip: Blocks 4 and 5 for those who likes silence, if you are party animals, ask to locate you to the block...

Well enjoyed another Two weeks at this Hotel complex, Staff and Service excellent as usual.
The Rooms do need some updating and are in the process of getting done, the Al-A Carte restaurants have changed there menus and this has improved over the last year or so.
Management always want the best for their customers , so if you have a problem ASK and it will normally get sorted.
This part of Egypt is "Trouble free" so go with confidence.
The Hotel complex is being constantly updated and improved, so it's looking better each year IMO.
A note for return visitors; if you have been 6 times or more you get the Yellow bands which give you access to the Italian Breakfast, this I highly recommend.
Enjoy.
We are back latter in the Year.
