“Brilliant holiday”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Me and my girlfriend went to this hotel from the 13th July - 27th July it was an excellent 2 weeks. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left we were well looked after the receptionist was very kind and always smiling. The kitchen staff were also always smiling and couldn't do enough for you the only downfall is that I personally think there should be more of a selection of food for you to choose from. The bar staff were amazing also always up for having a joke about with the guests around the pool and very helpful Mohammad (bar manager) in particular but all the staff were fantastic overall they will do anything for you. There is a shop in the hotel with perfumes etc and the shop owner is such a nice guy he welcomes you with a cup of tea and never passes you without saying hi, he has alot to offer on his shop with good prices so I would recommend going in there. The animations team done a good job of keeping the guests entertained throughout the day. Also Mohamed the cleaner was crazy but in a good way, always running about screaming and keeping people laughing from time to time throughout the day. We done trips through the people around the pool which we found out were alot cheaper than Thompson the desert experience is amazing and would highly recommend it. Nama bay isn't too far away from sol y mar which is good for shopping and has everything you need (inc McDonalds) the hassle does get annoying but just walk by them and they will leave you alone. The only really downfalls I have from the hotel is no air conditioning in reception and they need more of a selection of food thats all. Overall it's such a friendly place with amazing staff and would definitely recommend the hotel. Hopefully one day soon I will return.

My son and I stayed to the third Time in Egypt, before in El Gouna, for the first time in Sharm el Sheik. We had previously read some no good reviews about this hotel and we were very curious about what to expect us.
What we got:
A nice, clean room with great view, daily room cleaning (not self-evident). Everywhere friendly helpful and faster service, whether at the reception, in the restaurant, at front-cooking, at the bar, the pool and the pool bar. Very tasty food really well prepared, especially the delicious pastry. Very clean and tidy. The whole resort is beautifully designed and it is constantly working to improve, you can see it every day. I work in the hotel trade a very long time and I have rarely seen so much ambition and togetherness as here, like a big family. Amazing!
In summary, a wonderful holiday with fantastic all round care, delicious food, absolute relaxation, without boredom ... The first time but not the last time in this great hotel.
Please they are not put off by bad criticism. The fantastic staff and the GM are really constantly trying to make everything even better than it already is. Comment by my son - they want to be a 5 star hotel! I wish all employees every success for the future! Your doing a great job! Many Greatings to the whole crew from Germany! Silke and Jan (13th to 27 July)

Just spent a fantastic week at this wonderful hotel, from the moment we arrived at the reception my wife and I were welcomed with a nice cold drink, from that moment on we thought that we have picked the right Hotel and we were not wrong, all the staff were amazing, from the reception to the guys cleaning the rooms they could not do enough for us and other guests, this was not a front but was genuine. At meal times we were guided to our tables and drinks were there the next moment and were kept full. Full praise must be given to Klalid (sidek) nothing was too much for this wonderful guy at the end of the holiday we felt we left friends behind and not the staff. One point to mention, my wife is not an outgoing person, but the staff brought Her out of her shell and to say that She enjoyed herself is a result. I have travelled around the world and must say this hotel has got to be one of the greats. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere but we knew that, we want a relaxing holiday and that is what we got. we went out a couple of times and used the hotel taxi, which I would recommend. A very big thank you to the Manager who must be very proud of the way his staff works hard, its a credit to him. Would I go back to this hotel? no question about it, a very big yes. Miss this hotel at your peril

Just returned from a week here with my grown up daughter. We were really impressed! The staff were so welcoming and attentive. All inclusive buffet very varied, and good value for money. Free cocktails in the evening varied in strength from one evening to the next but hey - they are part of the all inclusive deal. Ask for a Cory. Not on the list and a bit like alcoholic cough mixture. Nice! Room very comfortable and all rooms overlook the pool. Book your trips from the man who is attached to the hotel, he is a bit cheaper than the holiday rep and they are good. He comes round the pool. Ladies do the manicure and pedicure at the hotel, 35 Egyptian but you get a total revamp of your feet and then a free check up where basically they do it all again. Worth doing just before you come home. Nothing to see locally, and there is no beach, but a free shuttle bus to their sister hotel Jaz Belvedere by the beach and you can use the beach bar and snack bar there. Definitely want to visit again.now just need to start saving up!

We have just returned from 10 days at this hotel and we have had an amazing holiday. When we first arrived we were made to feel at home immediately and from day 1, ALL of the staff couldn't do enough for us. We have never been to a hotel that have treated us so nicely! They weren't over the top and just after tips, they were just genuinely nice people being friendly and helpful and they felt like friends rather than staff by the end of the holiday. This hotel would not be anywhere close to what it is without them as the actually hotel is quite basic (but has everything you could need) so it is completely down to the staff for making it so good, Like I said, every single member of staff was wonderful but in particular for us, Ahmed the lifeguard was so lovely and looked after me when I got sunburnt and generally was great guy, as did Mohammed from the bar who got us breakfast on our first day late as we hadn't put out watches forward as another example. We had amazing pictures taken by Mano, on a private beach in the sunset and he was lovely all holiday. Rambo is awesome, best cleaner ever and just wanted to make people smile which he did! Just had us and the rest of the guests in stitches. The management came round a few times asking if we were happy and if we had any ideas to make it better etc which we thought was nice.
As it's a small hotel, we got to know so many great people.
I had my toes painted and for £20, you get a full pedicure and then you can have them redone at the end of your holiday at no extra cost which was great.


The beach at the other hotel was nice, the sea is like a bath! We went on the tube ride which was awesome but you have to hold on for your life haha! I came off with a few blisters but it was v v fun. We also did parasailing which was really good but very very quick up and down.

Probably missed loads of things but don't hesitate to book here. We'll be back! Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday!

Me and my boyfriend went here at the beginning of August, we were worried about what was on the news but once we arrived this totally disappeared.
We had the warmest welcome ever as we arrived late at night, the staff whisked us off to the restaurant as we hadn't eaten all day and couldn't do more for us, while another member of staff took our bags to our room. All the staff are very smiley and friendly and cannot do more for you.

The rooms are really clean and serviced everyday, with little personal touches left each time. We also had complimentary water in the room which could be refilled in the reception area when needed which was very helpful.

The restaurant had plenty of choice and the food was very nice. They had a pasta section and food could be cooked to your taste. Although the desserts were not as good as the main options.
We went all inclusive, the drinks can get a bit repetitive depending on taste but would recommend a wider range of cocktails maybe, however the staff are more than happy to tweak things to your taste.

We also went one two excursions which I would definitely recommend! do the VIP Snorkling and The quadbiking in the desert it is a must and really made our holiday. These are also all inclusive if you book through thomson once you arrive so you are never left without. All food is buffet too so eat your heart out!

The only thing that let the holiday down was upon our checkout our housekeeper ran to reception with a list of what we had drank from the mini bar (which i had kept an eye on) and the list seemed to have a few added extras on so please keep an eye and make a list if you do choose to drink anything from the fridge in your room, as we had already given our room key in and could not prove we had not drank the extras. They also 'didn't have any change' to give us when we tried to pay so we ended up paying even more!!!

However we cannot wait to return, however we will come a bit earlier or later in the year when it is not quite as hot as at some points in the day it is unbearable!

Room Tip: higher floors have a better view and are much quieter as lower are close to pool
