Had a great trip to a lovely beach resort on the west coast of the Sinai penninsular, Egypt last year. The local town is called Ras Sudr, the resort is Paradise bay, just outside the town, and we stayed in a fab, luxury apartment. The resort itself is quite quiet, most of the apartments in theh resort are owned, I believe by ex-pats who live in Cairo, hence at any one time there are never too many people there. There are lovely landscaped gardens with a couple of enormous swimming pools. The beach is beautiful and was about 2 minutes' walk from the apartment that we stayed in. There is also an option of staying in the Paradise hotel if you prefer, which is about 10 mins' walk from the beach. On the beach there is a kitesurf/windsurf school, you can also hire kayaks, play volleyball or tennis.
The bay itself is enormous and shallow with a cross-shore drift, so it is th eperfect place to learn to kite/wind surf. Also with the strong winds they get there howlnig up the Red Sea it is excellent for pros too. There is a safety boat in the bay and excellent, fully accredited tuition. I loved the windsurfing, and had several days of kitesurf lessons too, having wanted to learn for years but never having plucked up teh courage before. This just seemed to be THE perfect place to learn.
The apartments were managed by the kitesurf school (think they are called CNS Fun Kite Egypt...) and were great. 2 double bedrooms, large living room/dining/kitchen, with balcony and enormous roof terrace, both with gorgeous sea/mountain views. Loved it. Highly recommended.
Easy to get to - 2 hours cheap taxi from Cairo, arranged by the kite school. Go, before everyone else finds out about it and it gets spoiled...

Room tip: I would opt for one of the apartments over the hotel, as they are much closer to the beach.

What we loved about this place is that its secluded away from the busy cities. Dont forget its a 3 star hotel and we honestly were not expecting much but apart from the room issue we had, it was actually quite a good experience. Its better to call the hotel and book your rooms or double check cuz I booked 2 rooms from booking.com but when I called they said they had no bookings from my side. Food was ok, they have 2 swimming pools in the Resort and kit-surfing was great to watch.

On the down side, room #229 had an AC problem. We informed the reception and they sent us a guy saying that we had to keep the room closed to allow the AC to cool it which wasnt the case. We had to complain 3 more times till a technician showed up later at night saying the AC was out of Freon & it should work fine after refilling. Again this wasnt the case until they were finally convinced that we had to change the room at midnight!!! We only stayed for one night so this wasnt pleasant and when we asked for a contribution on check out, they offered 25EGP discount and said that was the best they could offer... seriously?

The beach is rocky so you better watch where you step... otherwise bring swimming shoes along cuz the water is really shallow during this time of the year. Kit-surfing was nice but we couldnt even try it cuz u have to take the full learning course which can take up to 2 weeks! All water sports were over priced including the Jet-ski which costs for an hour the same room rate u pay for 2 nights. There were other activities like billiards and beach volleyball and u can ask them to arrange a golf cart to drop u off at the beach from the hotel.

The place is not so easy to find for a first timer going by car. There's only one sign for the place 1km before it, otherwise u have to find someone to ask for directions. We phoned the guys in the hotel and they were very helpful explaining how to get there.

Overall, we were satisfied with our stay apart from the room issue we had, and we would definitely come back again!

Room tip: Stay away from room #229 in summer. Other rooms are fine I guess just make sure that the AC is working properly before you unpack cuz it gets hot. Try to buy your snacks before coming to the hotel cuz its over priced when it comes to food and drinks and the minibar in the room is empty. Shouldnt be a problem if you only go to the room on bedtime.

From a positive perspective, this is a good, steady kite-surfing hotel. The staff are friendly, the food is fine for Egypt, there’s hot water, the air conditioning works, and it’s a nice place to come back to after a day on the water.

The kite centre itself is great, and had a really good atmosphere.

From a negative perspective, the wind was so-so, and there’s nothing going on if you’re not into kite-surfing or windsurfing.

Room tip: The back courtyard is quieter.

This summer I stayed at here for a 10 day kite surfing holiday and had an amazing time! The hotel is very comfortable and more than adequate. The rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. They even provide a golf cart so you don’t have to walk to the beach!!

The food was good; we had a choice of chicken or fish and rice or chips. Over the weekend the hotel gets busy with people from Cairo so they put on a buffet, which provided a change of menu.

If you are coming here to kite surf then the hotel is more than adequate and you will only use it to eat and sleep. People tended to stay at the kite centre until it was time for dinner. The kite centre is amazing and I can only recommend it. I actually can’t think of one negative thing to say about Cns Paradise Ras Sudr.

Room tip: All that i saw were good.

paradise ras sudr is a great place for a relaxing vacation , there's nothing much to be done if you're going alone. yet the atmosphere is very convenient for a family trip or friends who are seeking peace of mind in a calm beach.
entertainment can be summed up in beach/sea activities like kite surfing ,banana boat , jet ski , pedalo !
while the hotel sometimes gives a tenourah show or a belly dancer at night.

the rooms are average clean , the staff is okay , not very friendly yet not annoying at all.
the buffet was awfully bad. no varieties as for an open buffet and the quality of the food was really bad.

there's a LOT of birds in the hotel and they puke all the time ! this makes the open area that links between the restaurant and the rooms smells really disgusting.

in short,
if you're not going with a real good company , then u should think again :)
