“Sun , Fun and lots of Great Memories”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

I just got back from a fantastic vacation at this amazing hotel
This is my 6th visit since 2011 ,i usually go with my wife and daughter of 5 years

Beside the perfect weather ,location , Beautiful sea ,coral reef , pools , spacious rooms , Tasty food , facilities and animation team that keeps me come time after time , every body is there to help you enjoying every single moment of your vacation from the Front desk , beach boys , animation teams , waiters till the General Manger himself

I though i got emotionally attached to the place because of the great memories i had there, but this time my parents joined me ; who in the second day called my aunt and cousins asking them to come over and join us , so i booked and extra standard room in just 10 minutes by the help of the front desk team who were very helpful and quick

My family even liked the place more than i do

The General Manger Mr.Tony welcomed us with a very nice surprise gift when we met in the restaurant

I'd like to thank Mr.Tony for his efforts to keep this hotel running as perfect as it is , Animation team Mohamed and Francis who kept my daughter busy most the time :)

Sameh on the Beach and Ahmed the waiters supervisor in the main restaurant

I will return again to my favorite spot in the world

It is with great pleasure that I enjoy returning to this hotel throughout the year as part of the shores hotel group , the hotel is clean, tidy and alot of relaxing areas you can go to for peace and quiet or you can join in the daily activities on the beach or palm pool. I choose to relax by the palm pool area and on some occasions join in the activities by the animatiom team that they put on throughout the day and evening.

or you can enjoy a walk along the jetty to look at the beautiful coral sea reef which is amazing to see all the different fishes, like finding Nemo.

some of the guests there do lack manners when it comes to going for lunch or dinner to the main restaurant piling there plates with food then leaving it and pushing in when queuing, just lack of respect for others guests in the hotel.

there is always lots to see and do within the resort and the mercato shopping mall is ten minute walk or a 15 min taxi drive to narma bay.

overall i had another relaxing holiday and met more new friends from all walks of life;

to the management and staff of shores amphoras thank you for making my stay most welcoming and hope to see you all again soon you really are amazing.

just a slight tip if you go over from the UK the GM is partial to Pork Pies.
and Mr El Mougy Resident Manager enjoy fine coffee in a morning.
It is like home away from home.

This hotel has very nice, big beautiful coral reef. The only minus is that approximately 95% of visitors are Russians. Many of them don't understand warnings in Russian not do feed fishes in the sea, also they seem not to understand picture signs prohibiting that. Also seems that they are lacking table manners, wasting and stealing food.
Staff and resort is good. Staff is friendly, smiling all the time.

Room Tip: 6317, view to the sea, nice, quiet room

I had a 1 bedroom RCI Time share apartment in Zone 2. The resort was huge with 3 main pools, a waterfall leading to a pool and the Red Sea at the bottom of the extensive gardens. This resort had many defects. The apartment was spacious but in dire need of refurbishment. The kitchen had two solid rings and very battered fridge which worked ok, some pots and pans etc but no microwave or toaster. STEPS everywhere and this resort is totally unsuitable for anyone with a mobility problem. To do self catering you would have had to go for a least a ten minute walk to a supermarket as the mini-market on site only stocked water, soft drinks, crisps, and biscuits. The TV was OK with 28 channels, two news channels and two films channels in English. On the way in from the airport I could see that there were buildings near the hotel but no restaurants or shops. I asked about a meal plan, and they had an all-inclusive deal at A$32 per day with soft drinks. I thought this was a good deal and booked it right away.
The majority of guests when I arrived 1 March were Italian and Russian. It was difficult to find anyone who spoke English. The whole place was more suitable for families. The Palm pool near me had a children's pool and a jacuzzi. There was a bar with a morose barman who rarely smiled. The food was aimed more at the Italians and Russians but I must say the range of bread and fancy bread at breakfast was excellent. You could have an omelette made to order or fried eggs. At lunchtime it was two sorts of pasta with different sauces. This changed on 8 March when the Italian chief finished his contract and 175 Italians cancelled their bookings. The main courses were rather repetitive but you could always find something acceptable to eat. The deserts were plentiful, up to 20 to choose from and a great temptation. The Egyptian night was a Wednesday and there was a "whirling dervish" and a belly dancer. The guy was great, and the belly dancer OK. When I went to the disco "COCO LOCO", it turned out to be just family entertainment eg Miss Amphora, Karoke, Music quiz, Mr Amphora - holiday camp fun for families. It was enjoyable and a good laugh, even when it was in Russian. At one point there were only 17 Brits in the resort, or so I was told. No toilets at the Palm Pool which was a nuisance.
The staff did their best from the General Manager down who frequently asked guests for their opinions. The waiters worked very hard. The Animation Team worked day and night to keep everyone happy. I had Frances and Ahmed at my pool and they danced, taught aqua aerobics every day, talked to everyone round the pool, both thoroughly hard working people.
I would have preferred to be closer to Nama Bay with its restaurants and shops. Tours outside of the security perimeter were all cancelled due to the bomb at Taba. This meant you could only go to Nama Bay. The hotel ran a free bus at 10.00-12.30 and 4.00-7.00 pm.

Room Tip: Point out if you have mobility problems, so you could get a room nearer the main building. But this...

Staff couldn`t do enough for you and all done with a smile and a jolly word. From the General Manager down to 2 specific members of the animation team Frances and Mohammed took the time to come over and speak to us whether we were in one of the restaurants or lazing down on the beach. The Egyptian night was great fun with again Frances and Muhammed joining in the fun and making the night. Would definately go back next year

We loved staying here the best thing about this hotel is the staff. They are so friendly and kind and will go out of their way to make sure everything is done for you to have the perfect holiday. This starts with the Manager and continues throughout all the staff. The food was excellent and I am a fussy eater, the bedrooms spacious, clean and comfortable. The garden beach and pools are beautiful and constantly cleaned. My friend came over for dinner one night, they had stayed at the Hilton in Sharm and told us that if they returned they would stay at Shores Amphoras...as we will when we return.xxx
