“Amazing holiday!!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

The hotel itself is lovely, the room we stayed in was just a standard room and was very basic but when all you are doing is sleeping there it was perfectly fine. The beds are really comfy and the air-con is a life saver. The food isn’t amazing at all (especially the buffet) but we didn’t go for the food so it didn’t bother us. I would recommend the fajita place for dinner and cliff restaurant or Panini bar for lunch. One thing I will say is that they don’t provide enough water, I was expecting to see bottles of water everywhere or for them to be replenished in our rooms on a daily basis, but you have to go to the bars, some of which don’t open until 12 or don’t have bottles and will only give you a glass which is fine but sometimes a little inconvenient. So we would ask for 4 bottles each on our way back down to the room and keep them in the fridge in there.

The pools are lovely and there is a pool to suit everyone, if you want to listen to music and join in with the activities (water polo etc) then the second pool by the sweet and crepe bar is the one to go to as that is where the animation team are based. If you want to relax, they have a relaxation pool, with 8 pools to choose from they have it all so just take your pick.

If you are expecting what you would get in a 5* hotel in England or if you are prone to moan about everything, then this isn’t the hotel for you. However, if sun, sea and sunshine is what you are after and you are happy to just chill out and enjoy it then this hotel is the one. Friendly staff and a beautiful location.

I would also like to especially mention the animation team and in particular Chris, Emily and Verity as they really made our holiday for us, they kept us informed about any excursions or nights out and just made the whole experience amazing. We had the best time and loved every minute.

I would definitely go again and wished we could have stayed longer!

I have just returned from a week at The Grande Hotel, and it was one of the best holidays I've been on.
The hotel is excellent; it's clean, very well maintained and has great facilities.
We spent our days at the animation pool, and it was the animation team that really made our holiday, Chris ("water polo"), Emily and Verity in particular. They are such a friendly team and kept us entertained for the whole trip. They are an asset to the hotel.
Mohammed at the animation pool bar was extremely friendly and couldn't have done more for us, as were the bar staff in the Rooftop bar where we spent our evenings.
The food was similar to other hotels I've stayed in in Sharm, no complaints although the evening buffet could do with a few more options. Lunch in the Cliff restaurant is highly recommended.
The bad reviews surprise me - this is a brilliant hotel and we were sad to go.
Thank you to all the staff and the animation team for an amazing holiday!

We have just returned and were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived. We were told that a reservation had been made in Fusion and the chef had made us a special 6 course meal, special thanks to Mamoud Fusion manager. Yes the rooms could do with a little work but they are clean the bedding changed every day, and why would you want to spend much time in it when there are 8 swimming pools beautiful ground and so many places to eat, how anybody can complain about the food is beyond me, how many all inclusive hotel are there that have so many restaurants my favourite is Fusion the fillet steak is amazing, and it is included in the all inclusive A big thank you to Dee, Shar and Lynda for helping to make our holiday so good. See you all again in September. Lynda and Chris

Just returned from a week at the grand and the last few reviews sum it up perfectly. A beautiful hotel with fabulous gardens. The staff can't do enough for you and a particular thanks to Amir by the grill bar, Sha, the amazing guest relations lady and Abdo in the Sharm for looking after us so well at breakfast. The food is good, not amazing but good, lots of variety and plenty of it. the Indian restaurant is lovely. Booking for some of the speciality restaurants can be a bit hit or miss but Sha told me this is something they're looking at to improve it. Our room was lovely and, after reading some of the more negative reviews, was much better than we expected. A lovely marble walk in shower. There are people coming round while you are by the pool to offer you massages, beauty treatments and tattoos! However, theyre not pushy and theres no hassle from them. Definitely have an Egyptian massage while you're there. It is just amazing. (Thanks to Mimo, the lovely lady at the Spa). Both my partner and I had tattoos, a bit risky you might think but if that's your thing, definitely see Mina the tattoo guy. Not only is he an interesting guy, but a talented tattooist.
We loved this hotel as it was away from the hassle and bustle of Naama bay but close enough to still get everywhere within 15 mins. Did quad biking in the desert which was fantastic. Definitely get a mask and snorkel and snorkel off the jettys on the private beach. Met some lovely people there and we're already talking about going back next year. For what you pay to stay here, it's amazing value and don't see why you need to pay more to stay anywhere else.
Thanks again to all at the Grand for making this such a great holiday

Room Tip: We stayed in 733 which was lovely. As others have said, take plenty of mosquito spray and don't...

We found the staff to be really helpful, they couldn't do enough for you. Anything you want they endeavour to get to you within no time. Personal service on arrival, throughout and on leaving-we loved this personal touch, hard to find in many other hotels.
The hotel location is great and the grounds are gorgeous . So many places to eat within the complex and all fabulous food. We didn't feel the need to eat out at all and we've stayed in various hotels in Sharm.
There is an ongoing refurb with many rooms like new (the one we stayed in still smelled of new paint) and some rooms are in need of a refurb and the management will openly tell you that this is in the pipeline, we are excited to return as soon as possible.
Thank you to all staff for a really great holiday, we look forward to coming back soon.

Room Tip: English speaking guest relations Shar and manager Dee. Free wifi.

We have just returned from our second stay at the Grand Hotel, and once again loved every minute of our holiday! The food was excellent, we especially loved the fusion and Mexican restaurant. The pool bar and beach club did great dinner time food too. The staff are lovely and work really hard, we made good friends with some of the staff last time and enjoyed meeting them all again on our second visit. We had some great laughs with them and they honestly can't do enough for you. We were treated like VIPS from the minute we arrived to the minute we left.
We stayed in a standard room, which was basic but we only used the room to sleep and have a shower, so it was more than fine for what we needed. We may treat ourselves next time and upgrade to a junior suite.
We spent a lot of time down at the beach in the morning, the views overlooking the sea and over to Tiran island are beautiful and the snorkelling off the beach pier is brilliant too.
Overall we had another fantastic stay at "The grand hotel" and will be back again for our 3rd visit next year, I honestly don't understand why people have wrote negative reviews for this hotel. A holiday is what you make of it but staying at "The Grand" made our holiday even better :)
Thank you for another great holiday!!!
