“Good hotel,Great team”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was our first stay in Sharm so I can not judge the facilities here against other hotels.
However I can not imagine how any other hotel here could have a better team of staff.
Everyone has been so friendly and helpful and having travelled a lot in Turkey and Cyprus, this is the best service we have experienced.
To mention a few names, Sara on reception, Ahmed and Ahmed Sammy in the restaurant so helpful and seemed to really care.
Salah and the animation team well done guys great effort.
Of course Ehab looking after us at the pool, top man!
Nice to see service with a smile, you made us smile too!!
Rich and Anne

Room Tip: We had a "swim up" room which was really good.

On arrival we were met with smiles, a cold drink of orange, and a warm moist hand towel. Check in took 5 minutes and a member of staff led us to our room and brought our bags. A great first impression.

Our superior sea room was modern, large, had a wonderfully large safe and fridge. The bathroom was quite large and had a walk in shower. The 'rainfall' type shower did splash outside the shower cubicle, but this was easily managed by simply putting the bathroom 'mat' to mop up the overspray. The room was set for twin beds, so we simply pushed the two together, hey presto large double bed! The sun rises early and is bright, so don't forget to close the blackout curtains. The balcony caught the sun early and was then shaded during the afternoon, on a 40 degree day this was a real blessing. A problem with our TV was sorted very quickly and a broken door stop sorted out the same day it occurred.

We were usually to breakfast for 7:00 - 8:00. Choice is generally good, however, the hot food for breakfast was a bit limited. You could have an omelette or fried eggs made to order, but otherwise there was just the same sausages, boiled eggs, rice. Cold food included salads, fruit salads etc, fresh fruit, numerous varieties of bread roll, cheese, cold meat, sweet pastries, pancakes, waffles, and yoghurts. So even if the hot food was limited there was a wide choice.

The lunch and dinner menus were similarly varied and generally well cooked. Salads, fresh fruit, rolls, soup, and a large variety of deserts. The deserts tended to follow several themes, but in our nine night stay I didn't get bored of the food. You could get your own drinks in the restaurant, but there was no need to do so, the waiters were attentive and very polite and friendly.

I only used the beach bar twice, but was served quickly each time. The main bar could get busy, but if the waiters were really busy, you could get your own drinks. Again friendly and attentive staff were present.

Before starting this review I looked at previous reviews that had given low ratings. I wondered if those guests had stayed at a different hotel? The staff could not have been more friendly, helpful, or accommodating. Having watched some other guests and particularly some of the Russian guests barking orders at the waiters and never saying thank you or please I wondered if that influenced the service they received. Sadly I doubt it did, the staff were professional.

The entertainment team worked hard to entertain the guests and there was a show every night, I didn't go as it wasn't my thing, but it appeared to be different each night.

If you haven't stayed in Sharm before you need to understand that a 5* in Sharm is not the same as a 5* in London or Madrid - understand this (and accept that you are not paying London or Madrid prices); be polite to the staff; and if push comes to shove be prepared to get your own beer and you will have a great stay.

If you enjoy snorkelling and understand the damage that touching/stepping on the reef will do - then bring a spearfishing gun with you to deal with ignorant Russian tourists who couldn't give a toss about the reef. I know I should be more tolerant, I'm working on it.

Room Tip: Choose a superior sea view and ask for a balcony, you will pay a bit more for the view, but you will...

Hello, we are resting in Barcelo tyrant charm from 14 to 24 April, in room 3224. Olga and Maria. Impressions of the rest were very good and warm. Really liked the layout of the hotel, everything is close and convenient. Large nice room, with a balcony. Comfortable design. The only negative, in the shower, the water flooded the bathroom floor.

A beautiful reception overlooking the sea. Responsive staff. Remember the beautiful Sarah Ahmed and Ahmed and the other guys who helped us, when there were any questions. I'm sorry, it's hard to remember all the names, thank you all! We went from Tez Tour, everything went without delay. Hotel guide we had Mohamed. We took two trips, all went well, it was interesting.

Housekeeping was good. No complaints were not.
We are in a period of strong winds. Therefore, little swim in the sea, unfortunately. In the afternoon the wind died down, but the evening was again strong. Of the 10 days, only 4 have been no wind. But the animators are not allowed to miss))) From 10 am rich program: Charging and dance (belly dancing and bachata), yoga, volleyball, darts and boccia. On warm days, water aerobics in the pool, it was very fun!

The restaurant we liked the food. Friendly staff. Hello Adel, wholeheartedly congratulate on your marriage!)))

In the evening, the animation in the amphitheater))
Before the show was live music, we especially liked the saxophone.
From the invited artists we liked the acrobats of Ghana (if not mistaken), and Brazilian show it was very professional and bright! The other evening were our animators: beautiful Christina, Yana, Kate and Shannon. Girls, you cool !!!!!!!!!!!
And of course our favorite guys: Ahmed, Eslam, Ammar, Khalid. Guys, you fellows !!!!!!!!!!! Your numbers were funny and tender, very different. This great team of animators gathered chief Salah. Thanks to him, there was this whole warm atmosphere. Salah, you are very talented and you have a great team !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We really miss.
For those who enjoy a disco, you can go to town with the animators. We went, it was cool!

I would like to say thank you to all the guys from the bar at the reception. And of course thanks to the director of the bar - Mohamed. You have a delicious cocktail) thanks to all.
Almost all the staff is not bad spoke in Russian.

In general, we liked the rest! If there were cons, we did not notice them. We all enjoyed it. THANK YOU!

The hotel rooms are large and modern. The hotel has a nice beach. We liked the service in the restaurant. Special thanks to Reyad and Mina. I also wanted to thank the guide from TEZ tour Ihaba and Mohammed. You can always turn to with questions and requests, they will help. Happy holidays to all.
