The room is spacious and well furnished with big bathroom and balcony, good beds and clean sheets and towels, it just has that appearance of accumulated dirtiness especially in the floor and in the bathroom, while bathrooms in public areas were hardly clean. The food quality is in particular low to very low; you’ll not die starving but being several times in Sharm and Sheikh and in different hotels this was the lowest quality food that I have experienced. The hotel is rather isolated and basically the only option one has to go out from the hotel is using the limousine service of the hotel which is a rip off compared to the public taxis and not really any good quality car to justify the price. It is good to mention that the staff offering the service are friendly and polite like almost everywhere in this hotel. The beach has a good combination of coral reef and fine pebbled stone. That said the portion of the beach with access to swimming water is very small, with few umbrellas in that part that somehow forces people to occupy sunbeds starting at 5 AM!! There are plenty of umbrellas and sunbeds all across the seaside of the hotel which is around the reef and there is no floating bridge to give you access to wither swimming or snorkeling. Unlike the impression I had created from reading other reviews the reef has no particular beauty to the area related to the Hotel, it is actually very polluted by plastic bags that were floating or stacked in the corals. This area of Sharm is particularly windy and the sea would turn dangerous very fast and you’d either be anxious while attempting to swim, or not be allowed at all by the lifeguards at the beach, who for the sake of truth should be commended for their professionalism and courage as I observed personally saving 4 people in 7 days from deadly reef torrents. The most shocking experience of all was when staff serving by the beach side asked me to provide them with food from the Hotel. As friendly and playful the Egyptians staff are, initially I thought that the person was joking with me, nevertheless I brought a hamburger and a beer. Few minute later the guy came, he refused the beer but accepted the hamburger (to my shocking surprise he was really hungry) and while talking to us he was sharing that management was not really offering good treatment to the staff. This impression was later on supported by almost every local staff that we had a chance to talk.

Hotel's Favorite
My husband and I went to barcelo for 11 days honeymoon. We were upgraded to a room with a view that I cannot tell you what an amazing view we got. This already made our vacation so specail and having our bed arrange so nicely thank you to the housekeeping team for always cleaning the room well and always checking to see if we need anything with a smile on thier face. To the food and beverage team all your hard working in making us fat due to all the food you can eat and the entertainment guys thank you for all your shows they were cool. But what makes the hotel specail that they have an amazing view from the sea to the mountains which not all the hotels have and the beautiful sandly beach to walking into the water and finding the beautiful fishes that come right up to you. I would recommend this hotel to all family and couples. Thank you all again for a holiday that we both wont forget and we will be back.

I fell in love with this hotel! It’s amazing in almost everything. First, the check in was good considering we had 9 rooms. We got all of our special requests. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Second, the rooms: spacious and clean, plus the view was amazing! Third, food: I cannot say that there was a huge variety of food but it was enough and it was good. The waiters were friendly and helpful. Fourth, the beach: if you have been to Sharm El Sheikh, you would know that this is one of the things you should consider especially if you are traveling with kids and elderly. We wanted a beach where we don’t have to walk a lot or jump off a walkway which is something most of Sharm hotels have. The beach was perfect in that sense. The animation team was very energetic. Overall, the experience was positive and I would definitely go back.

Hotel facility is nice, rooms are spacious but require some maintenance. Staff is nice except for the housekeeping they don’t clean the rooms well at all. Food is ok but could do some variety (we found a worm in the lettuce of the salad bar) When we were leaving we brought the car in front of the lobby door but they kept nagging to drive it down (we had a member on a wheelchair) we thought it’s for a security purpose until the guy told us you can’t bring a car up here as it breaks the marble floor!!! Really!? What about the BUS that was full of people that went up few days ago? Because they are foreigners of course not Egyptians! It was very very disappointing to be honest.
