“Looking forward to returning in Oct”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I am so looking forward to returning to Verginia Sharm in October, it is my home in Egypt i have stayed at least 3 /4 times a year since 2009. My friend Tracey and I have thoroughly enjoyed our visits over the years. The rooms have always been clean if there has ever been a problem the hotel have moved us to another room without any issues. I have always had a balcony room which I love. The staff are extremely helpful, polite and willing to do what ever you need. The pool bar is always happy and buzzing the barman Mohamed Amhed has it running so smoothly and cant do enough for you, He runs the upstairs bar in the evening and this to is an enjoyable night with the bar running smoothly. Samara and his animation team work really hard to entertain and keep the guest happy. The evening shows are wonderful. Reading some good reviews recently hope all is well see you in October 2013.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are the best.

I was sceptical about this hotel but it couldn't of proved me more wrong...this hotel is so beautiful and the staff make your holiday they are lovely guys, from the young lad that sweeps the floor to the manager...they went out of their way to give you a relaxing stay. Shelf Mohamed who works at the pool bar is a great guy his service was friendly and always there to get you your drinks...Mohammed Ahmed who ran the top bar service is also 10/10. The food is great has different options through out your stay...breakfast isn't catered for the English but service fresh omelettes and breads. I would recommend this hotel it's value for money and if you what something about quieter and romantic then here is your hotel. I believe this is a hotel for singles/couples or friends. :)

we have just spent 2 lovely weeks at the Virginia sharm and its a credit to the new manager , the rooms where clean with fresh linen every day , the food was good , they catered for everyone , yes there are a lot of Russians and ukranians who are extremely rude to other guests and staff but the ruddist person I came across was ENGLISH . the staff are extremely helpful there customer service is the best I have seen and the talented chefs are amazing the hotel shop is run by a lovely man and his wife and there shop is cheap , just because you go all inclusive doesn't mean you have sit at the bar from open till close,which you can if you want to you can sit by the pool allday drinking soft drinks that would cost a fortune any where else its real coca cola Fanta and sprite,the pool is a credit to any hotl it is spotless and cleaned constantly this is a beautiful relaxing hotel and I would certainly return

Firstly I want to start by saying that a majority of the staff are amazing & will do anything to make your day, week, fortnight. The cleaners kept the room spotless! The pool guy constantly asking if we was okay & having a good time if we needed anything just to find him. The pool bar staff chatty & friendly. Was surprised when the Bar/Resturant Manager told him off for being to friendly with us because a group of Russian Girls complained.

The hotel is absolutely lovely & we was pleasantly surprise considering we got a very cheap deal. It was always tidy. The rooms are what you expect in any hotel & they always need a little bit of TLC but how long do you spend in them.

Food was absolutely terrible, I cannot describe how disappointed we was. All the salads tasted the same, the daily potato dish was never cooked properly & meat always covered in fat. The first week we dealt with it but when it come to the second week & we noticed the food was repeating itself......... When a majority of people are going on two weeks holiday perhaps consider keeping it going over a longer period.

Alcoholic Drinks I wouldn't even bother trying them. They all taste like an incredibly strong version of Bacardi. Vodka, Gin, Brandy, Rum all tasted the same. Didn't drink a drop from the hotel in the end as we was so disappointed.

When we went to checkout the Reception Manager tried to charge us for wifi we had already paid for & kept saying we have to pay. Said we had signed which indicated we hadn't paid. He kept repeating himself until I said I wanted to speak to the Hotel Manager & then just said not to worry.

Overall non of the group would stay in this hotel again the staff we're lovely but an all inclusive holiday when you eat out most nights because the terrible food isn't a place you want to stay.

Where to start the hotel in its self is a lovely hotel with a nice swimming pool clean rooms even though the beds are rock hard but over all quite clean. The majority of staff were really nice and helpful and were always asking if we needed help apart from reception who most of the time were miserable and sometimes rude. The food was disgusting rice and raw potatoes everyday for 2 weeks it was the same everyday so we spent a lot of money eating out which defeats the point of all inclusive luckly there was a free bus into nama bay and a taxi to the market up the road only cost 20 egyptian pounds where there was mcdonalds,pizza hut and lots of other food places. the alcohol was terrible all tasted the same like watered down Bacardi it was undrinkable. The hotel is full of Russians who were so rude and horrible to staff luckily we still managed to have a nice holiday but most proberly will not be returning to this hotel!!

I visit the Verginia Sharm about 3/4 times a year, staying from 7 up to 21 days. My last visit was april The hotel is clean and rooms are okay. The pools are lovely as are the grounds my only issue is the food. It is not very good there is vast Russian choice which is not to my taste. The staff are wonderful always helpful especially the bar staff always busy but willing to help. One barman seemed to be always on his name is Mohamed Ahmed he made the holiday an enjoyment. I Will be visiting again soon will let you all know if food has improved

I don't like to find bad points in a hotel but the staff are petrified of their owner!!
we went all inclusive, I need to take medication, they would not give me a hot water without paying for the price for a coffee.... so sad, the Lady owner called me a trouble maker..... I have never been in this situation.... if I had not paid then the staff who served me would have been docked from they pay!!
I would not recommend this hotel, I was not allowed to have water from the bar at 11am but had to trek to the swimming pool !! what was the point of all inclusive...I'd seen staff crying and I could see how much they wanted to help..... I felt so sorry for the staff
