“Excellent and lovely staff - I cannot credit them enough they are just lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

I was dubious about staying here when I read some of the reviews. Stupidly I booked before I checked out reviews, so thought I would just go for it. This hotel is listed as 3 stars so I never expected a 5 star complex. Granted the hotel itself is not in its original condition, and has seen some wear. However, my holiday was amazing and a lot of it was down to the hotel staff. All the staff in the hotel did everything they could to make our stay a lovely experience. As all inclusive guests we benefited from a free mini bus to and from the beach (less than 5mins and only £1-2 in taxi) and other locations every day. It also meant that we did not need to pay for beds on the beach. As I was travelling in a budget this helped considerably. Everywhere in the hotel was clean and I saw no problems with insects and there was regular pest control. Our room was cleaned daily and any request was granted. I was made to feel exceptionally welcome by the staff and the food was also amazing. My companion and I were made to feel very special, and I feel I have made friends at this hotel. As a result, I definitely intend to visit this hotel again. I would highly recommend this hotel.

just back from the karma sharm el sheikh - missing it already ! the hotel could do with some tlc but the staff more than make up for that .max and ola made our holiday [animation ] all the bar staff were fantastic .our rooms were cleaned every day and on one occasion our air conditioner broke down and after a 100km trip to get a part it was soon up and running again .malak at the pool worked endlessly to keep the pool area clean and to make sure that every one had towels .mr mohammed nabil the owner is a lovely man who is really trying to improve this hotel . my husband and i will be back next year! make sure to take a good insect repellant -the mossies are lethal !!

Room Tip: we stayed in 238 on the upper floor - large room overlooking the pool

I stayed here for the second time this year on the 30th of March for 11 days, all I can say is its amazing! Granted the hotel itself needs some improvements but there is nothing horrific! The staff made our holiday amazing, all remembered me from the first visits which is a first as I've visited other hotels more than once and not been remembered! Where do I start with the staff.... Osama known as Carlton was amazing recognised me as soon as we went into the hotel, though out the whole stay he made us feel so welcome, joining us in the evenings having a laugh. Such a lovely man! Next the bar staff, abdo (cheers) such a great guy made us feel so welcome on the first night and was there to help us with everything, and getting the measures of our drinks spot on ;) Samir always a good laugh with him about :P max the entertainer, amazing guy had us laughing day and night, he has so much energy lol joining in with us at any chance :)! The chiefs Sammy and taha did anything they could to make us happy the food was great as it was but they made sure everyone was happy! I'd happily re visit this hotel every time I go to sharm in fact I'd love to go back again this year for the third time :P

Thank you so much for making our holiday even more amazing :)
Laura

Room Tip: Ground floor pool view :)

Hotel karma has got to be the worse hotel I have ever stayed in! Me my partner and 6 months old baby girl went in march we read the reviews and thought it can't be as bad as people are making out but owwww it was worse lol we arrived and they brought us like a wooden dog kennel for our baby to sleep in and the room was dirty with dead flys all over the walls and dirty floors. The food was just horrible and didn't have much meat available and they never had butter for breakfast!! I would go back to Egypt but I was pay a bit more next time I have leant my lesson!! Please stay well clear of this hotel if you have children and are a clean freak lol

We came to sharm for the first time, being two 19 year old girls it could have been daunting, but after a mix up on the first night and being given a poor room as the hotel was fully booked we
were quickly given a alternative, mr Mahmoud the general manager was a lovely guy who sorted everything for us quickly to return to the 'suite' this was fabulous as it was lovely and spacious with pool veiws and big enough for 5 people I would say! You have to remember you are visiting egypt & a 3 star is not a 3 star in our country, the cleanliness did need a little work and the pool and general place needed a few repairs but The staff were genuinely the most friendly people, abdo and ebrahim were the best most polite waiters who couldnt do any more to help they were not happy unless we were happy!!! Sam the main chef was wonderful he was always personally asking us to try specials he had made and talking us through the food! If anyone stays at this hotel I urge you too book your tours/excussions through hasan he is independent and works through the hotel to offer some of the best trips we went to terana islands on a boat trip swam with dolphins and went to the desert with bedwin people for the day!! Was highly recommended! All in all its what you make it considering the price you pay, there is a shop facility in the hotel with amon always happy to help you and a hilarious taxi driver who will take you anywhere you wish for a good price, I will definetly be returning to sharm I love the place but the people make it thankyou so much to sam, abdo ebrahim mr mahmoud and everyone else at karma who helped to make our stay enjoyable!
