1. The hygiene of the hotel is shambolic. My wife and I were ill all week as was virtually every other person we spoke to whilst there. 2. Entertainment at night is dreadful. Show is meant to start at 9:30 but starts at 9:50 and is quite honestly something that we could make up in a minute non rehearsed. 3....

My husband and I have just returned from Sunrise Island View and it was quite frankly horrendous. The food and drink is a disgrace and the hygiene of the hotel is shocking. My husband and I were ill for the duration of our holiday and are currently awaiting the results of samples given to GP. Seriously, do not go to...

This was just the mid year break we needed and the resort was ideal for our needs. We had a junior suite and was located down by pool 4 - we stepped out to a garden and overlooked the sea, that's a good start for us! Negative to that: only because the hotel next door (Concorde) had a couple of...

In case you don't want to read all this review, I'll give you my top tips first off: 1. Take Sun Factor 30 and avoid the sunshine between 12pm and 3pm. It's bloody hot, and you'll do well not to burn. 2. If you cash card doesn't work at some ATM's, don't worry, it's the ATM's not your card !....

This was my husband, daughter (aged 11) and my 7th trip to Egypt and this was the worst of the 7 hotels we had stayed in. I therefore know that although in Eygpt, you do not all have to get ill. We did however at this hotel (never in the last 6 trips), Every person we spoke to had been...

Just returned from the island view and was surprised to read some of the recent reviews posted, no its certainly not a 4/5 star and you can rip it to pieces if you go into detail about every aspect but it is relative to how much you've paid ! This isn't a 'hotel' its more like a village made up...

To be honest this hotel is not even 3*. Dirty bathrooms, dirty plastic glasses at the poll bar, not washed vegetables, main meals only slightly warm. This hotel has serious sanitary issues. And you'll get sick. On top of that: no chance for a lounger by the pool as all are booked by 7 a.m., no seats at the bars...

Our journey started early morning in Manchester airport, we checked in, and like usual my girlfriends bag was over weighed maybe coz she had half of Primark in her suitcase so I had to pay an extra £40 and another £15 for the extra 5kg coming back (before booking your holiday pay the extra for 20KG rather then 15KG).

We have just arrived back from a week at Sunrise Island View and all I can say is that it was very disappointing. The hotel is advertised as 5 star however this was certainly not the case. The main problem during our stay was the food - it was terrible. If you are travelling to ths hotel anywhere in the...
