Just back from a great week in the Royal Grand Sharm. the weather was stunning, the staff superb and the general atmosphere fantastic.
We had a lovely room with a sea view and a swimming pool on our doorstep. One of the things I enjoyed most were wicker chairs on the balcony which were great for the early morning sunshine and so much more comfortable than the plastic ones you normally get. who would credit it - sunbathing at 6.30 in the morning in the middle of March - fantastic.
I was a bit concerned after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor and I can see where some people would comment on the 'tiredness' of the rooms etc, there were some wee bits and pieces which weren't perfect, a shade that didn't fit the lamp, some grouting which had been badly patched, but they were very small things overall and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone going over to Sharm.
The beach area is delightful with man made terraces filled with plenty of loungers and loads of room to spread out, the main pool area was amazing and very inviting and with everything on a hill, a good work out on a daily basis! Don't be alarmed, there is a lift from the beach area up to main reception if you fancy a lazy day!
Good bits - the staff were all so friendly and there were plenty of them
Bad bits - if I were to be picky as everything is buffet style the food could have been warmer sometimes, but I understand it is difficult ot keep food hot when some people walk away and leave lids open!
Great holiday, great hotel, more than happy to go back anytime
