The Sentido Palm Royale is an excellent hotel with superb facilities.
We have stayed at several hotels in Egypt on the Red Sea, and we can honestly say this is by far the best we have stayed at.

The staff make this hotel "amazing" - nothing is too much trouble for them, they were attentive to all our needs; their professionalism is a credit to them.

A special thanks to Joseph from the animation team, Mina Romany and Mina Samy, Mohammed and all the bar and restaurant staff in the Azur, Johnny's and captain Nemo's bar. You made our holiday something we will always remember; we hope to see you all next year!!

On arrival the reception and concierge staff checked us in very quickly and delivered our luggage to the room. The reception foyer is very beautiful and has a lovely relaxing bar with piano.

The buffet restaurant "Café Stella" offer Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and is stocked with a large range and variety of food, all freshly prepared and displayed for the guests. In particular fresh omelettes for breakfast and pizzeria in the evening with an outside BBQ areas some evening.

The "Azur" pool snack bar has a wide variety of delicious snacks if you don't fancy using the buffet restaurant for Lunch.

The "Captain Nemo's" beach bar is a few metres from the sea and a great place for drinks.

The air conditioned "Johnny's bar" is a great place to have a drink and a chill in the evening.

All bars are stocked with local spirits and wines, cocktails are available all of which are of a good quality and are palatable.

There are four a la carte restaurants on the hotel complex and they offer an elaborate range of freshly cooked Asian, Greek, Italian and Lebanese food.

The hotel is kept meticulously clean inside and the garden and grounds are also kept tidy.

The pool area is well stocked with sun loungers and parasols, as is the private beach. The swim up bar is a must.

There are lots of activities for people to do if they choose to. There is a fantastic air conditioned gym and health club, also on offer are darts, aerobics, boules, yoga, volleyball and much more.

A great animation team who inform you of the daily activities but don't pressure you to take part.

We have just returned from our first visit to this hotel.
The hotel and grounds are stunning, with a beautiful beach front where we never struggled to find a spot to lounge.
The room was kept spotless and the mini bar topped up daily with soft drinks. We had a beautiful sea view from the balcony.
The food in this hotel would be difficult to beat, that good that we didn't feel the need to make use of the a la carte restaurants on the complex. The restaurant staff were brilliant, leaving us wanting or waiting for nothing, especially Sameh for making our meal times a great experience.
A couple of very minor negative points, the WiFi wasn't up to much and continually dropped out, however you can pay extra to rent a booster box.
There are no wrist bands to identify your board basis, which left me being shouted at across the restaurant to the point of people staring, for my room number after taking a bottle of water, maybe wrist bands would be a better option?
The bar staff and waiters don't appear to want to serve you at the bar or wait on your tables unless you have tipped, and as we don't believe in tipping bad service, this left us feeling the need to carry the contents of our mini bar in the room to the beach each morning, and avoided going into Johnnys bar for a drink due to the unwelcome feeling we got from the bar staff and bar waiters.
Having said all that, it is a lovely place with a very chilled out and relaxing vibe. Would we return? In a heartbeat with the hope that the bar staff and bar waiters have been given a good shake up and have learnt to earn their tips rather than withhold service until they have received tips.
All in all, a lovely holiday in a stunning setting. I forgot to mention I loved our daily visit from the hotel camel, donkey and horses on the beach, it was nice to see that they were only brought out when a little cooler, each and every one stole my heart.

We have stayed at several different hotels in Egypt on the Red Sea, and we can honestly say this is by far the best we have stayed at.

Room tip: Most rooms have a sea view. All the room blocks are within easy reach of all the hotel facilities.
