My self and a girl friend wanted a relaxing week away in the sun, First impressions of this hotel were wow, this looks lovely, bit confusing when you first arrive as you arent allowed to touch your cases, they do get delivered to your room for you which is lovely, but it should have been explained a bit better, as after loosing a suitcase once, ( not in Sharm I add ) I am fanatical about keeping an eye on my own case.
Once checked in which was pretty quick, we were escorted to our rooms, which as it was dark was very confusing as to where we were going,
The resort is huge and a map of the resort is supplied to you, I think if it was in colour it would be more helpful, rooms lovely albeit a little bit tired, our floor had a few broken tiles, but they werent sharp so not much of a problem, as others have said no where in shower to put toiletries etc, and no towel rails, I know its nothing major as the rest of the bathroom was lovely, plenty of space for all toiletries etc, on the sink units, lovely large mirror and plenty of light in bathroom, the main part of the room could be better lit as the lamps and wall lights dont offer much light, once out and into the resort, we found our way round pretty quickly, yes there are loads steps but it does warn you of this when you book, not a problem as we welcomed the excersise, food was lovely in all of the restaurants, Fusion and Olive were definatly my favorites, oh but then the Indian was very good too, Staff at the beach restauraunt always seems to be rushing around and not getting anywhere, all other staff were lovely and helpful, It was nice to see Mike the mangaer mingling with the guests during the day, we have no complaints about our week stay at the Grand, we did see people stopping him quite regular to complain, we are looking to return to the Grand about September time as we enjoyed it. The lad who cleaned our room for us was good, but possibly not as good as a woman, the room was kept clean but little touches like corners in the bathroom werent cleaned properly, as we were 2 single girls staying in our room, we had to do hair and make up etc in bathroom, often there were hairs still on the floor and not swept up properly, even though we tried to pick all hair up ourselves , corners were missed, I know its nothing major, but maybe staff need refreshing now and again, clean towels everyday were lovely, it was bliss not having to pack beach towels and getting clean ones delivered to your room every day. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at the Grand and will deffo be back,
Thanks to Mike and all staff for all service recieved.
