“Had a great holiday”
Reviewed July 31, 2011

Just got back from 10 days at the Pasadena, what a lovely and peaceful 10 days they were. Very quiet, pool was lovely and so were ALL the staff. Food was nice and if you wanted something that wasnt there, you just need to ask and you get it. Wish we were still there. Shops are within walking distance or there is a shuttle bus to Namma Bay and the beach. We paid over the top as our dates were restricted but others we spoke to paid £550/£600 for 2 weeks, bargain. Thanks to all the staff that made our hoilday so special

Room Tip: We had ground floor by the pool - was lovely

helpful and freindly staff
nice pool and garden
big rooms with everything you need

unfortunately, the big minus is for the cleaning. rooms and bathrooms are dirty, restaurant floors, tables, dishes...dirty! a lot of flies in the restaurant and not very good food :(

Right, Where Do I Start, me and my partner came to Sharm at the beggining of september and we just came home on thursday,
when we got there the hotel didnt look much from the outside, the staff seemed very friendly and helped us to our rooms with our bags,
The hotel was pretty empty when we got there but that soon changed after a few days when coach full of Russians came !
There was about 10 English people and about 1000 Russians in the hotel!

The room was ok, it was basic and had a tele with 2 English channels,
The drinks at the bar are almost undrinkable, the vodka is like paint stripper! Although the beer is alright!
The food is absolutely deplorable!! There was FLYS all over the tables in the restaurant, it was foul! on our first day for breakfast there was a choice of mash and this mince stuff that looked like gruel! It was horrible!
lunch wasnt much better... again mash and mince, and dinner was also the same, one night i have to admit was a turkey carvery and it was quite nice for a change, Apart from that the only thing we could actually eat was the rice.

Every morning there was big red dead ants on the bathroom floor, one day i picked 12 up!
There was lizards in our room every night which didnt really bother us because they are harmless,
We were speaking to one couple and one night a MOUSE was in bed with her!!
The shower was freezing cold! Too cold to even get washed in!!

After a week of staying in this hotel I just couldnt take it any more! i complained to the rep but he couldnt move us as it was through thomas cook, he tried his best to help us though! in the end we couldnt get moved as sharm was busy at this time,
We had a big discussion with the hotel manager and he told us he would do anything to make us happy and get the chefs to make us whatever we wanted to eat!!

After this it was abit better, but we shouldnt have to complain to get service like that! we ended up ordering our food everyday, such as beefburgers and chicken burgers, also for breakfast the chef would make us fried eggs and omlettes.

There is 2 days of entertainment, Saturday and Wednesday and it was the same thing on both days, belly dancers and a fire show,

Also another thing the hotel does is put tiles with superglue on infront of the lamps around the hotel, so if lizards go onto the tiles they will get stuck and they cant move whatsoever! the lizards will then stay stuck to the tile untill the sun burns and kills them which i thought was very cruel as the lizards caused no problem within the hotel.

There is a pub along the road called The Three Crowns! its lovely for food especially steak!! and really cheap!!

We Tried our hardest to enjoy our holiday, in the end it was a really good holiday, it was just the hotel that let us down!
I would definately come back to sharm el sheikh but definately not this hotel!!
I would reccomend some trips such as quadding! This was amazing! and aqua park was good also! Soho Square is lovely!! Try the ice bar!!

Thankyou For Listening..

Ok so here goes.... I dont understand what all the bad reviews below are about!!!! Me and my partner went for 2 weeks at the begining of september we have had a fantastic time.

The hotel itself was very queit and is about ten mins away from the town of Nabq their isnt many places around the hotel.

The entertainment was just a egyption tradition of the dancers, i didnt like this i found this boring but this is not what im use to when i go away. it would normally be kareoke, disco, bingo and comedy and bird shows but we were in egypt not spain so we couldnt really complain about this as this is what they call entertainment

The food wasnt the best but we were in egypt and this is what they eat. so we got use to it and ate out a few nights they is a very nice english bar down the road the 3 crowns. The drinks was mainly vodka and beer and the basics but this was ok you get use to it after a while

All the staff at the hotel were very friends specially the pool bar lad Mustaffa Alex - top bloke so friendly. And the towel boy was a gud lad and also massage Man. He was a bit of a pest but he was a laugh. The reception staff were friendly and any problems you had they would sort it ot for you.

The rooms are very basic but this is all you need when your on holiday they were very cean and tidy and the house keeping staff did a very good job.

The pool was very clean and tidy.

They is also a free bus to the beach and to Nama Bay on a nite time which is worth going to

We also visited sharks bay - a must see town it is so different to the rest of the towns.

The only down side to the holiday was the rude russains and germans.. They dnt have any manners and like to push and shove you out of the way. Also they was a few too many flies Other than this we had a fantastic holiday and we are already looking to return in may.

Thanks pasadena for a fantastic time

Ok as I said in the title ive stayed in worse hotels but it was far too quiet and boring for us. Food was ok for the first few days but there is only so much chicken and beef you can stomach without getting bored of it or in my case violently ill for 1.5 days!! The 1st few days its ok lounging around the pool having a few drinks from pool bar (when not barged out of the way by rude russains just demanding beer without a please or thank you) and the fact they only have 1 cd makes you go insane by day 4 lol. Weather was fab, staff friendly enough but you dont always get served first unless you tip often. Beach was fab and only a short 5/10 min stroll away if you choose not to jump on the bus provided. We ate out most afternoons come the second week as the food was boring, bland and to be honest i think it was mainly reheated from the nights before. Plus side to hotel was the weather, clean rooms, friendly staff but in all honesty thats about it. Id go back to Sharm but would go B&B next time as cheap enough to eat and drink out instead. We found a fantastic little bar called Churchill's about 15 mins walk into town and deffo recommend the sunday roast and all for £5!! If you want a very quiet, sun bathing hol and dont eat much and can cope with 95% Russains/Germans then maybe this hotel is for you but im sure there are many other better hotels around with more facilities and better food.

We were not sure what to expect howver we wil go to Egypt again and we will stay at the Pasadena.

The layout is pleasing to the eye and clean. The staff are very very friendly and all have time for the guests.

There are three pools. The main pool and small pool are clean, the heated pool howver has not as good vis and is not as clean.

The rooms are spacious and cleaned every day with clean towels and bed linen. The shower could of been cleaner.

The food is the biggest talking point. The hotel is in Eygpt so guess what, the food is from Eygpt. If you want english food you could always holiday in UK. The Chefs will fry French frys and burgers on request.

There are no snacks or ice cream included in the all inclusive package. There are two outlets for hot and cold drinks during non meal times, and there are a two bars open in the evening and a disco later on.

The rep was good and was able to sort out trips quickly and at short notice oncluding scuba diving.

The biggest pluses are the staff and design of the hotel.

We made a lot of frinds with the UK guests. There were also a large Russian contingent and also Germans.
