The hotel is 4 stars, and is advertised as 5 stars sometimes, the service isn't even close to 3 stars, why is that?? I donno, the receptionist blamed the Russians...

The room was fine, clean, kinda comfy, and not much to complain of, It could be better though, I am a paranoid person when it comes to hotel meals, so I usually go on B&B and it's also a chance to eat out, since I am not one of the people with big appetite, I only eat once more and I am usually on drinks, but even the breakfast was a bad experience, unrated hotels in Egypt can do better, the buffet never changes, it always lacks something, the cups and plates are too old. Salads bar with flies on it.

I hated it,specially with the towels thing, you've to carry your own towel from the hotel to the beach which is 300 meters away and this distance shouldn't be underestimated in the sun...
Moreover there can be a shortage in towels, not just beach towels but towels in general, it's almost as if they have underestimated the load.

To be honest, some bulbs needed changes, and problems were addressed fast enough. The pool could use some renewal, the pool bar is always shutdown, there is no animation whatsoever...

Cataract should be demolished imo for the quality it is lacking, it's a shame on 4 stars hotels...I got fooled by some reviews. Maybe old reviews...

Anyway, it wasn't a nightmare after all there's a lot to enjoy in Sharm and I usually use hotels for bed time only, which worked well for me.

You can do better for the same amount of money or even less.

It is a shame for the Egyptian authorities to grant this hotel 4 stars. Two stars are more than enough, or better to be understood as not classified hotel.
I wanted to check in with my my wife and two little children. Check in time was at 15:00 i was told. Although I arrived much earlier (ca. 9:00 am) I greed but requested to have towels to use the beach in the meantime. This was not possible because towels are to be handed over only upon check in !!!!!
The restaurant's staff have no idea of service. Always half empty or already empty buffet. Very little fruits are offered.
In one evening there was only fish (of cheap sorts).
Dishes often little broken and not clean. Egyptian and Russian tourists who do not complain.
I would not recommend it at all.
Only the beach is fine and the location is fabulous (within the Bazar-pedestrian area).
