Everything was very good during our stay except for the following points 1.the food needs more effort interm of quality not quantity 2.free wifi should be available in the hotel,currently you need to buy a card with an additional charge ! 3. You have to provide an Iron machines to the rooms if needed currently it is not available. And you need to send your clothes to the dry cleaning 4.all bars shouldn't close at 12pm ,one bar should work 24 hours in the entire resort.

Probably the best hotel around Sharm el Sheikh. We really enjoyed our vacation there. Spent a great time with our little boy walking across amazingly beautiful green surrounding of Faraana. The cuisine was super as well as the whole staff: very helpful and willing. And what's the most important is that Faraana is located on the best coral beach of Sharm el Sheikh. Once you get there you're very welcome to enjoy the miracles of Red sea all the time! We will definitely be back to you again, Faraana!

recently I visited Faraana Reef Hotel with my family. Before the trip, I had not very good expectations, because we were going to a hotel with Russian vacationers. but everything was great! the hotel provided everything you need! (the food is great, the room is fine, the administration is pleasant) but the most amazing thing about this hotel is the animation team! optimistic, cheerful open guys! They made this holiday unforgettable! I think that in this hotel you can return for them! they organized wonderful evenings, activities on the beach! even the most closed guests took part in such events, because the guys made it all very interesting! thanks for this week!

This October my children and I spent a week in Faraana reef resort- a hotel in Sam el Sheikh, Egipt. The hotel is big and beautiful: it represents two-floor building in national Arabic style: very atmospheric in a perfect state. The hotel was recently repaired. The reception is designed in an Arabic style also very carefullywith a lot of ooden details . Rooms also are pretty. We had a huge balcony! The food was good and tasty though not very big choice. We hope that the quality of drinks will improve soon. We did enjoy swimming in two big pools, every night shows, dancing in the disco. Most of all we were impressed by the beach, the amazing reef full of fish and creatures, the shore and rocks arising around!!! And the restaurant were we had lunch was on a rock also! So great! Moreover, the guests of Faraana can visit two cafeterias situated right there- on the territory near the beach: Romantic and atmospheric Farsha and Santorini! We want to thank management for being attentive and gentle to us, always helpful!mostly mr. Rimon Roshdi! As well we want to greet the waiters and our friend Mina! We recommend this place - Faraana reef hotel- to spend happy time and relax to everyone.

The hotel has a great position, large estate, wonderful beach for swiming and snorkling, but generaly very, very poor service and estate maintainance. Food and service staff are not at 4* level, and the service staff is sometimes quite rude and inapropriately behaved. Fortunately there are some really lovely exeptions. Cleanliness in general is on a bad level. Some rooms are renovated, and some are really not suitable for guest use at all. Reception will try to give you a horrible room, and if you don't ask for a better one you may end up staying there. It may once have been a wonderful hotel, and may be great once again if renovated and managed service better. At this moment it is not in a good state, but we still managed to have a good vacation there.

Hotel is 4****, but it's really 5*****. Food, apartments, service staff kind and nice. Sea is amazing, especially for kids. Want to admit animators, especially William,he loves his job more , than everything. Kids love him so much too. This resort is really nice place. Just try it and you wouldn't regret.

This hotel is an abomination. FOOD IS HORRIBLE, the beach is messy and loud, staff is rude and sometimes there’s no water in the shower (there is a phone in the room however reception number is conveninently not anywhere in signt). Don’t stay here if you want a pleasent vacation.

Good beach and own reef with options to dive and snorkl. The best time to swim is in the morning, when the water is high. Also, there is a good animation team, guys and girls are nice and always ready to help

Liked that it is a first line and not far from old city. Good sea, sand beach. Great for snorting because it has its own reef. Most of all I liked animation team! Additionally, there is a lounge bar near by named Farsha with great music.
