“Wonderful February break!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We had a wonderful ten day break here end of Feb. enjoyed it very much, the service is excellent with a warm cosy feel to it, but having stayed previously at The Four Seasons let me explain the difference, it is like comparing a warm,cosy pub serving excellent food with a high end West End Restaurant -both good in their own way. The Royal Savoy is a Superior Wing of The Savoy Hotel (not part of London Savoy!) it is true is being updated, but service and quality does fall behind the 5 star of 4 Seasons (but so does the price,) lets say The Royal Savoy is four and a half stars, but could fault nothing, in fact my partner preferred the general ambience of The Royal Savoy to The Four Seasons, but it all depends on what you are looking for - The Royal Savoy is very unique, whereas The Four Seasons is the same level of comfort/service as The Four Seasons in New
York/London/LA

Room Tip: Before you travel, get a few 10E pounds for tips, as they are very well received by beach/pool staff...

One week back at home and today it snows in Belgium. Not so difficult to think back at our amazing week in The Royal Savoy. We enjoyed any minute of our stay in the S-class. We liked everything : room, food, pool, beach, drinks,...But compared to other hotels we visited around the world The Staff really is outstanding!!! Keep on the good work, we'll see you again next year.
Note : we didn't feel unsafe at all during our stay in Sharm.

Kind regards

A short review this year on this small gem in Sharm el Sheikh. From arrival at the chaotic airport
to departure at a chaotic airport homeward bound, the Royal Savoy Team led by Hany the Manager have excelled themselves once again.

The Royal Savoy is an almost perfect shorthaul destination..... but the old bedrooms and bathrooms need some urgent TLC. I know there is going to be a new reception area etc.
We have seen the slow progress for several years but this is a 5 star resort and hopefully the new area will open soon.

The breakfast area with cabinets and silver domes appear unappetising and berries are in short supply. However, Farag the well known egg man, pancake man saves the day.

The beach has greatly improved but lounges need cushions on, as they have round the pool areas. Softer !!!!

Go you won't be disappointed.

My boyfriend and I just returned from a week long holiday at the Royal Savoy, and I can't stress enough how much we wanted to stay longer. The staff were amazing, nothing was too much hassle. In response to the negative reviews I read before we arrived, I'd say that if you're not completely happy with any aspect of your stay, just tell them. The staff are brilliant and will always go out of their way to help with any concerns you may have.

Our stay was faultless from beginning to end. We were picked up from the airport by a very polite driver, met at reception by Samuel (one of the nicest and most helpful men I've ever met) and shown to our room which had a hot tub and King size four poster bed, with a balcony overlooking the main pool. There are three private pools to choose from, a private area of the beach, and 20 restaurants in the hotel and Soho Square. The Steak House is brilliant and we went there three times during our stay.

There's been a lot of bad press about Egypt lately, but we never felt unsafe at all. Please don't think twice- stay at the Royal Savoy and you won't regret it.

Massive thanks to all the staff at RS for their hospitality.

Miss Tyler and Mr Tiago

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire staff at the Royal Savoy for making our holiday absolutely fantastic and a holiday I'll remember for a long time, I returned on the 17th March having spent a week in a junior suite ( an upgrade for our anniversary ) from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty ourselves and every member of their finely picked staff were brilliant from the manager to the room cleaner, I cannot put into words everything they did for us but they made sure we wanted for nothing without being over bearing they were very discrete, courteous, friendly attentive polite, and made sure we had a fantastic holiday, The one thing they are in the process of rectifying is the new lobby and reception area which should be ready by Christmas and that will add further quality, The Royal is in the grounds of the Savoy and is a small 5* boutique hotel with all the facilities of 5* luxury resort in the Savoy at your disposal, The room was superb with a four poster bed at least 6ft wide, flat screen tv Internet, writing table and a small eating area where we were left delicious cakes every day, also had a double jacuzzi in the bedroom, superb bathroom with Crabtree & Everlyn toiletries bathrobe slippers etc, Our balcony had two comfortable chairs overlooking the Savoy swimming pools and side sea view, The Royal has 3 pools all private to Royal guest and no children ! Also a private beach reserved only for Royal guests also no Children to disturb your peace and tranquility, We opted for s.class fully inclusive which gave us the use of the bars and restaurants in Soho square as well as the ones in the hotel, Overall this was a fantastic holiday which unfortunaly passed too quickly even on our departure we were taken in the Royals private car and treated to V.I.P treatment by being taken straight to the front of the of baggage drop off our rep filled in the departure visa and whisked us through to the duty free area, so all in all 15 mins from hotel to duty free ! thanks also to Katie Kirk of travel counsellors who tailor made this holiday for us, A truly Royal experience !!!!

My Husband and I have recently returned from another fantastic stay at The Royal Savoy Hotel in Sharm. As you will see from many previous reviews, we are very satisfied guests of this charming place. It is difficult to know what to say that we haven't already said before. Everything was as perfect as always. The weather, the food, the service, the room, the shopping, entertainment and nightlife in Soho Square and most importantly the staff! This time we decided to go for the New Year and attended the New Years Eve party that is held in the Egyptian Hall. WOW! it was amazing and no exaggeration to say that it was the best NYE party we have ever attended. The decor was spectacular, really beautiful. There was a fantastic mixture of entertainment all evening, hosted by the very charming Ramy Rizkallah. The food was a buffet and there was so much of it that it was served in an adjoining room. Every course was of superb taste and quality with plenty of chefs on hand to help or advise. We are already planning out next trip!
There has been a lot of talk lately about how safe Egypt is to visit, so I would like to take this opportunity now to say that there is absolutely NOTHING to worry about in Sharm el Sheikh (or anywhere else for that matter) It is perfectly safe. My husband and I were even in Sharm during the revolution and there was nothing to see or feel nervous about even then.
If you are considering Sharm but perhaps a little unsure then please don't be. It's a lovely sunny, warm, friendly and peaceful destination and should you choose the Royal Savoy, I am very sure you will be returning back as soon as you can.

We would like to thank you very much for your very positive review about your stay at The Royal Savoy Hotel.

Our New Year’s Eve party was spectacular indeed. It was held in the Egyptian Hall and we had some amazing entertainment including our Oriental Takhet & Live lute music, the Chinese Circus Show, the Las Vegas Show and the Palenke Band. Our chefs did a great job too but behind the scenes.

Many of these acts and lots more appear regularly on stage at Soho Square, just a short walk or club car ride from the Royal Savoy. Don’t forget that we also have a superb array of artistes and musicians who perform at our restaurants and bars while you unwind.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
