“Sheer relaxation in beautiful surroundings and looked after by attentive staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2010

Have just returned after a week at this beautiful hotel. Had a sea view room with balcony well worth the upgrade and stayed bed and breakfast although all inclusive would have probably been better as all local restaurants are linked to the hotel and are of exceptional quality, good value for money and have a variety of themes - to be reccommended - The Fish Restaurant and The Italian although had excellent meals at others on site and in Soho Square, just beyond the hotel gates.

Staff could not do enough for you, and found pool side service excellent as was room service. Breakfast could not be faulted for its variety and was never too busy to be uncomfortable as have experienced in some Five Star hotels.

Did trips to Cairo and Luxor during week and would highly recommend Luxor but next time would give Cairo a miss - too busy, too much time spent on the coach and a very long day if flying as we did.

For anyone just wanting to chill for a week or ten days this is the place - always stay Five Star and this did not disappoint - can't wait to go back next year.

Just returned from the Savoy Hotel and had a great time. This is a long and frank review stating the good and the bad, to give those who are considering booking this hotel an honest view of what to expect.
The set out of the Hotel and grounds were beautiful. The cleanliness of the public areas was superb. The bars and the restaurants were all very good but the service could be slow, especially waiting for the bill in all outlets. We had 2 really bad examples of this once in the Rocky bar and once in the Morgana.
We used the S-Class which we found excellent value. I do think that you could holiday for less but with S-Class your adding a bit of luxury as you can dine a la carte every night plus there extra privileges such as a free massage, (which was very good and a great way to start our holiday de-stressing from work and the travel). Free bowling, banana boat etc. Another good thing about S-Class in the Savoy, is that there are no wrist bands. Everyone has to sign for everything they have and something’s (but not many), do carry a supplement which is clearly shown on the menu and if you order one of these they will tell you it is extra. Almost all menus show the price you would be paying if you were BB or HB.
The down side of paying for S-Class is the timing. We arrived at around 10.30pm so although we paid for S-Class for that day we had missed most of the privileges, so we had paid over £100 for 2 drinks and 2 chicken wraps. The day we were leaving our flight was only leaving at 10.40pm and our rep had told us that privileges would last until we left but we had to check out at lunch time and we were then told that, we were allowed lunch before 3pm and then all privileges would stop and we would have to pay for all extra food and drink. We went for lunch at around 2.15pm by the time we had eaten and received our ticket to sign we were told that it was too late S-Class was closed. Only when I complained and told the waiter that when we had ordered our meal it was before the closing time and we had received slow service did the waiter speak to reception and agree that we didn’t need to pay. I think the Savoy should consider arrival and departure times for S-Class and allow the all food and drink that you are permitted to have for all the time you are there, as it is highly unlikely that someone will check out at a later time than when they check in.
Before we went on holiday we had heard a lot of reports that the food was bad in Egypt and to be aware of stomach upsets but I can honestly say the food was delicious and we didn’t have any problems. We ate at a different restaurant every night and food in each was superb. I would thoroughly recommend the Steak restaurant as this was my favourite. I had the Australian tenderloin, fantastic.
On the whole the service and staff were very good apart from a couple of times in the Morgana restaurant where we one night we ordered a 2nd glass of wine when the waiter collected our dishes after our starter course but by the time it arrived we had finished our meal and were signing our ticket, ready to leave (although on S-Class most things are free everything has to be signed for) On another visit we had to wait for at least 30 minutes if not more to sign our bill other people were requesting their bill, signing and leaving but the waiter just kept saying sorry it will be here soon, there appeared to be some sort of problem but no explanation as to why ours was taking so long. Saying that, all the staff was usually very friendly and accommodating.
The bars were very good, and all the staff very friendly. Usually the waiter was there asking if you needed another drink before your glass was empty. Lying around the pool and beach they would come and ask if there was anything you needed. When they brought you drinks, unless it was a cocktail they would bring it in a bucket full of ice to keep it cool. Wonderful. The Non-Alcoholic cocktails were great in the daytime and the Alcoholic ones great in the evening. I have to say when I have gone to other hotels were you could travel All Inclusive or not and the people who weren’t on AI received better treatment as the staff thought they would get a tip from the cash paying customers and not from the AI customers but this wasn’t the case at the Savoy.
We upgraded to a sea view room which had excellent views and the balcony was fantastic, very large and comfortable. The lay out of the bedroom and bathroom were very spacious and nice but looked a bit worn and tired, especially the bathroom. When we arrived we thought there was a dead spider in the bath but it turned out to be a crack which although the engineer came and painted over it each time we showered the bath would leak slightly over the floor.
All that said and done, would I go back YES, would I recommend the Savoy YES, would I recommend S-Class YES especially if you want that bit extra, and taking all into account I think that it was value for money as the costs out there were a little expensive, the most expensive that we had was in the Hard Rock Café, in Naama bay, 69LE (around £8.50) for 2 local Lagers. Also be aware some outlets like the Hard Rock Café advertise one price and then add service and local tax to your final bill.
We had never travelled to Egypt before and we weren’t sure whether to book Naama Bay or Sharks Bay, for us, we made the right decision, Naama Bay was too much like any other Holiday resort with good and bad Hotels and good and bad night life, too touristy for me, Sharks Bay is more refined and Soho Square is far better but not as much going on.
At the Savoy the good is very good and far outweighed any of the bad that I have mentioned but I wanted to give a full and honest appraisal.

we visited in august and stayed a fortnight, it was gorgeous but it cost £2,200 in total for us both so it was pricey. if you can afford it you will love it, for me it was a lot and so little things bugged me. eg when pool attendants forgot your drink or would let you queue at the bar because they were chatting and then insist on carrying it down to you only to take ages, dont get me wrong this happened only a little but those prices do not allow for these mistakes.
the room was gorgeous bright and airy with a lovely balcony, bed huge and tv had lots of english channels, they had a turn down service and left fruit, cakes in the room.
robes, slippers, toiletries all good.
pool area was immaculate.
the choice of food on a/inc was great we only went into the buffet area once for dinner( it wasnt so good) fabulous breakfast.
The beach was man made and was not suitable for young children to bath in as it is built on a reef. the reef was really lovely, i saw all sorts of fish including lion fish, parot fish and rays. do not be stupid and feed them bread in the water, its v scary as they swarm round you and bite at you. I watched a russian man do it to get a great picture and he got an ear full from the life guard.

drinks were all first rate and they use botteld water for icecubes and cleaning salad stuff. I stayed at the hilton sharks bay ( 2 hotels up the coast) and got really sick, neither my husband or i got sick here.
they were building outside the hotel when we were there to extend options and entertainment. this really was a lovely place but it is not good for people who want to see the real egypt or be able to wander outside the hotle, everything is a taxi away.

We have just returned from the Savoy Hotel in Sharm el Sheikh. We booked all inclusive(S Class) and boy - did we get looked after. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. They will do anything for you - and with a smile - such lovely people. The hotel is stunning, the pools are a dream and so warm. There are approx. 11 restaurants, far too many restaurants to enjoy all in one week, but the food was on the whole 1st class.
We only had one meal which was disappointing, and that was chicken cooked on hot rocks at the table. The chicken was too thick therefore did not cook easily. The rooms are lovely and spacious, very clean, you even get a pillow menu with about 8 different types. if we had one criticism it was that the bathrooms could perhaps do with a bit of an upgrade. Lovely Dressing gowns and slippers are provided,

The gardens all around the hotel rooms are lovely and it is very peaceful. Golf buggies will ferry you around the hotel if needed, or up to Soho Square which is great for bars,shopping and entertainment. Naama Bay (much busier area)is 25 mins by taxi or shuttle bus, we visited the night market, which was good, plenty of bartering was the order of the day, and you can usually pick things up approximately 50% less.

The all inclusive is well worthing considering, as it includes things like free massage in the health spa, iceskating, tennis,culturama show, laundry and much more, as well as all the usual snacks,drinks including excellent wine at the table, spirits etc.etc., and also eating up at the Soho Square restaurants.

Would we go back ? Yes definitely - tomorrow

Sorry for such a late review!
The savoy hotel is fabulous! We stayed for 12 nights last year. Weather is glorious, food was the best I have had in a hotel. We only used the buffet for breakfast and went to our favourites whenever we wanted. The hot rocks restaurant is fantastic.
One night after going out into the desert we had room service as we were so tired, the amount of food we had would have easily fed 8 people instead of 3 and it was so cheap.
For lunch we always went to the Morganna. Great food, treated like kings!
The service was second to none. The waiters round the pool were fantastic and worked so hard. To me it seemed that nothing was too much trouble..............
We met a few people who complained about almost everything but they didn't go S class. I would thoroughly recommend it as you have no worries about costs of anything.
I treat people as they treat me and was treated with the upmost respect from all members of staff.
The only draw backs I could find was the beach was quite small and there wasn't a great deal of places to go in the evenings. We saw Boney M while we stayed which was great but we only wanted to see them once, not three or 4 times! There is a bar that is open in the evening but closes at 12.Apart from that it was wonderful.
Next time we go to Egypt I wouldn't even consider going to another hotel!

Yes, the bathrooms are a little tired but overall a fab holiday. Well worth paying S class if you like a few drinks. Just having a pre-dinner drink, a bottle of wine with your meal and an after dinner drink could set you back £50 +
I booked a sea view room but in hindsight probably wouldn't bother as the rooms overlooking the gardens are good.
Make an effort with the staff and you will have great time.

We spent 7 days at the Savoy and throughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff went out of their way to be helpful but were not in your face. The rooms were lovely seeing as you don't spend a great deal of time in them, plenty of room and comfy beds. The bathrooms could do with updating but they are adequate. The pools and beach and snorkelling are fabulous. Plenty of sunbeds available. The music on beach could sometimes get a bit too loud but this only seemed to happen at certain times during the day. Food was great, plenty of choice and not particularly expensive. We did not go all inclusive as price quoted was an additional £75 per day per adult. We did B&B and only spent £200 for 2 of us to eat and drink for the whole week. Would highly recommend the room service - you can get a lovely evening meal served on your terrace, so like having your own private restaurant, for a fraction of the price of the A La Carte Restaurants. Would also highly recommend the Zen Chinese Restaurant in Soho Square - lovely food and atmosphere. I did a 2-day Diving Course at the Ocean College Diving School in Naama Bay; enjoyed the diving course but Naama bay is like Benidorm so avoid like the plague. White Knights Beach area lovely and quiet and not over commercialised. Close to airport but you don't really notice the planes, as few and far between. Sharm El Sheikh Airport is an experience - allow plenty of time! After queuing to get into the airport, there is a mass free for all to check in, with flights announcing final boarding with people still trying to check in. Food prices in airport are extortionate - charge £13 for 2 slices of pizza or £6 for a bap! Overall, we had a lovely week and would highly recommend the Savoy and would be more than happy to return.
