For more than 20 years we visit Shedwan Golden Beach every year several times and months.Like so many repeating guests we love this hotel and place and all this years we where very satisfied about the accomendation, the beach,the service and the food, it was a very good 3+ stars hotel that always had a lot off regular guests from different countries.
This time when we came back we where badly surprised when we saw that the beach on many places, special the area around the Blue Lagoon was broken down and that the Blue Lagoon restaurant," the most nicest place in the whole hotel," where many people used to met each other to have a drink or a meal" was closed.
And what about the food,yes after talking with the managment team they tried to make it better. so there where dressings by the salades,the tomato's and fruit where more ripe, yes i saw changes. But all by all the quality and variation could be better.We know and understand that after the revolution and the dramatic fall off the tourisme in Egypt it is difficult to hold the quality equal as before.But when many guests don't return because off this problems the future will even be more whorse for this, once so beloved hotel.
The whole staff from the managment to the waiters, the cleaningstaff and the people who works in the garden nothing else than praise them for their kindness, friendly, and helpfull behavior.Everybody is trying to do the best they could to comfort their guests and stay always friendly by all the comments they recieve so much. So our thanks to all off them
What our feeling is that it is not the present managment that is responsable for all the feallures in the moment, but that it is a question off money from a higher level from the Sunrise Chain.We think their first option has to be, to bring Shedwan back to the standard it has before as a very good 3+ star hotel,with good food and that offers his guests the possibility to choose halfboard, breakfast or all-inclusive and i am sure many former guests than will return.This is much better than plans to rebuilt it to an 5star hotel when even a 3 star in the moment not is feasible.Also our vision is that all the All-inclusive hotels and special those who are located in the areas as Dahar, Sekalla etc, they are destroying the local bussiness from so many Egyptians and local life, cosyness,to met locals and be friends, with the nice and friendly Egyptian people, while most off ALL-INN people stay inside. And worst off all many tourist got frightend by travelagency's and tourleaders telling them that it is dangerous to go outside. that is really pitty, because the Egyptians are the nicest and friendly people with a lot off humor, i ever met. and never we have had any problem with them all 52 times we visit Egypt . we travell so many times around in this beautifull country all by our own, from north to south and from east to west, by train bus etc, so we can say, go out and discover the beauty from the land and his people.
And on the end We will wish the managment team from Shedwan and all who works there all the best,succes to make Shedwan again a good place to stay. And thanks for all your kindness.
