Stayed at the sharm in the middle of may it was so hot 40+ during the day and 30s at night ! On our arrival our cases were looked after while we had a meal and checked in a porter delivered our cases to our room (have tips ready!) The room was air conditioned which was lovely ! Two large twin beds, tv, large bathroom and small balcony which was a bonus as we never asked for 1 ! Went for a wonder around the complex the beach was 10 mins walk away down a slope not good to walk up when its hot ! Or walk up loads of steps throughout the complex ! Not good for disabled people.
The food was ok quite repetitive beef or chicken in sauce, you can book into one of the other 6 restaurants if you que up at 8am to book for the following day or in the evening but not much choice left then.
The pool was ok if you could get a lounger, but we was quite lucky people used to give up their loungers as it was to hot to sit out all day ! But there are 4 pools to choose from and the beach,
The waiters were very friendly and found us a table every meal time and remembered what drinks we had nothing was too much for them, the evening entertainment was ok the bar staff and waiters where excellent we was welcomed each night a table found for us in a busy space and drinks brought to us constantly the sheikha man/boy! Was our evenings entertainment most nights lovely bloke !, Islam was the best waiter bringing us drinks and made my brothers birthday very special giving us comfy seats on a huge sofa! flowers sprinkled on the table and our glasses never emptied ! A huge credit to the resort , would love to go back even if it was only to see the staff again, they made our holiday even the pool staff couldn't do enough for us and had a smile on thier faces! Well done sharm resort
Block 9 is quiet and behind the kids pool but away from the beach

We appreciate our complements on our service, rooms, and helpful friendly staff.
For future guests, you do not have to take the stairs down to Naama Bay if you are unable to or don't wish to. We offer a free shuttle bus service, which goes regularly to town, and to two beaches, wind beach (in Naama Bay) and Hadaba beach, which is great for snorkeling.
All rooms have balconies, and you can request rooms by the main pool or quiet pool, or rooms with a desert view which are also in a quieter area. If you want to be part of the entertainment and action, or if you have children the main pool area is best, if you want a quieter room you can request a room near the quiet pool or a desert view room.
I'm not sure what you mean by queing to book at one of 6 restaurants a day in advance. That doesn't sound at all like Sharm Holiday resort. We have two restaurants, the main restaurant where all inclusive and full board guests eat as part of their stay, and the seafood restaurant which you pay to eat at. There are not usually ques, it takes only a few minutes, and the food is buffet style in the main restaurant. You can go up to different tables, and choose from a range of mains, salads, desserts and freshly baked breads etc. We also have a range of meats available daily, such as duck, fish, chicken, beef, and vegetarian options.
There are not 4 pools, there are two large pools and one small childrens pool. The main pool is very large, perhaps it looks like it is in two parts, but the pools have just been re done this year, and are large, heated and in very nice new condition, please see recent photos.
I am not 100% sure this review is posted in the correct location, another comment you said was that there are not usually spare sun loungers, when here at Sharm Holiday Resort there are always spare sun loungers, and if not it really wouldn't be long to wait for one, we usually get compliments on the amount of sun loungers, we haven't had guests say there aren't enough.
Thank you for your compliments, and we hope to see you here again on your next visit to Sharm.
