We stayed at the end of April and we're seasoned travellers to Sharm but this was our first time to El Faraana Reef. Amazing beach front location... perfect for snorkelling/diving. BUT the following info may have helped our expectations on arrival; all drinks are served in very small plastic Pepsi cups... that's ALL drinks beer water spirits etc. No glasses at all unless you're paying. So lots of trips to the bars to get quenched! Bottles of water to take to your room/day trips are chargable!! So be warned. English is not hugely spoken here but efforts to speak Arabic get you the biggest smiles Even please and thank you's got us lovely tables in the busy Grill restaurant!. The hotel is dominated by Italian company Marverno so reps and all entertainment is in Italian. Russians are also a huge percentage of holidaymakers so the food reflects this heavily! Very samey... but book into the Grill restuarant for perfect cliff side view of the bay and fresh grilled meats/fish. We we're originally booked into room 211 overlooking the "piano/Coral bar" ... dont be fooled by the quaint name ... dreadful singer started up at 10pm til midnight so we moved rooms as there was no way of sleeping through that! :) But dont be put off .. these are handy snippets of info that would have helped us out... especially the cup situation I was longing for a huge holiday cocktail an arrival and had to make do with something green in a plastic cup :))
