My husband and I decided to return to Egypt as we were in search of sunshine and we certainly got that and so much more in Egypt and that is primarily due to the most amazing hotel and brilliant staff. We were initially booked into the Sonesta Hotel but it was not really what we were looking for as having very hectic lives in London we wanted somewhere tranquil and bit more out of the way from the busy holiday scene in the main hotel. We spotted the Sonesta Royale and decided to upgrade and it was worth every penny. The reception staff and our tour guide Mohammed from Murhaba Tours made this is a very easy transition. This hotel is fantastic, I usually go on holiday and don't like to go back to the same place but this is one place that given the chance I will definitely go back to. The hotel is beautiful and it feels like time stands still. You have three pools to choose from and each takes your breathe away. The rooms are spacious and are definitely five stars and from what other guests told us they are all of a high spec so I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel from this perspective.
The staff at the hotel are their biggest asset as they are absolutely amazing. Hany the recreation employee was very attentive and always made sure that we had towels put on our favourite sun loungers and this was always done with a smile. The bar staff at the Byblos bar were outstanding. Night barman Mohammed was friendly and helpful. Mohammed the chef made delicious lunches and they were exactly what we felt like each day. Our only wish was that we could have eaten here at night but the Casablance and the Indian restaurant became our favourite at nights as we did not really enjoy the other restaurants.The two barmen during the day really made our stay wonderful. Ahmed always had a smile and gave brilliant service. He was quick to look after all your needs and always made you feel welcome at the bar. Mohammed the bar manager during the day was absolutely fantastic. From the moment of arrival he anticipated every need and always made you feel so welcome and special. I watched him be incredibly attentive to his customers and there was not a single guest who did not sing his praises as nothing was too much hassle. He made such an effort to ensure you were happy, he always had a smile and was such a lovely person. So a big thank you, the holiday was amazing, the hotel beautiful and the staff were outstanding. i will never forget them. I also would like to thank the manager Taha who has been so kind in helping me get a piece of jewellery which I accidentally left in the room returned to me in London. really great service and I think speaks volumes for the way guests are treated. Hence, if you want a magical holiday where you get treated wonderfully then this is the definitely a place to choose.
