“I'd go back tomorrow...”
Reviewed October 15, 2010

We've just got back from the All Seasons Oasis and wish we were back.

It's a great hotel, small and comfortable with a great atmosphere. As we were all British we got to know loads of people and nobody had food poisoning while we there - I'd agree it was more likely to be dehydration and the heat as we ate in the restaurant most of the time and had no problems.

Reception - very pretty Morrocan design, receptionists are friendly and helpful and there's free WiFi if you take your laptop! They have a library where you can put the books you've read and find another one -although as it was always in the late 30's or higher when we were there you'll be lucky if your pages dont melt and start falling out...

The room was spacious with balcony and a pool view; large, clean, very comfortable beds, fridge, Sat TV with a few great film channels and a free safe . The cleaner did a fab job with all the towel scultures every day and always had a smile on his face (as did all the staff) Find it hard to believe that any rooms would have dirty or ripped sheets as it said in one review but if they had and asked someone they would have rectified it straight away. We had an issue with the card to get into our room one day and they sent someone up straight away and it was sorted.

Food - ok so not loads of choice and a little repetitious but it's an Egyptian AI hotel not Gordon Ramsey's restaurant. There's always something you'll like and should satisfy most people; great chips by the way :)

Pool - fab, perfect temperature- cool enough to be refreshing after the heat but not too cold so you got frostbite - Abdul makes sure it's always clean and didn't have any problems with sunbeds. They have a masseur at the pool who was great! We both had a full body massage that took about an hour and a half and was a bargain!

Pool bar- great place to relax and get together with everyone for a chat - staff very friendly and always smiling, especially Khalid, Achmed and Mido (sorry if I've spelt those wrong)

We knew there was no entertainment at the hotel as it said so, however we met some great people (especially Dennis, Margaret, Chris, Sandra, Mike (Diveback Mountain!) Jackie, Barry, Emma, Jemma, Steven, Natalie, Alana and Kevin and Weasley the cat- sorry if I've missed any,)and there was quite enough entertainiment with those without the need for any more! Never laughed as much in my life!

Location - free bus to Naama Bay, although taxis are cheap- we always haggled and paid 20LE to go to Old Sharm which is an experience and has some great restaurants (we tried the Sinai Star for fish and Le Mezzanine for meat) Food was great and we never paid more than about a tenner per person. If you can't be bothered to go far there's loads of shops, restaurants, bars etc within a 5 minute walk - El Mercato is just round the corner from the hotel and they have some fab restaurants (try Onions - fab location and great food) they have a KFC, McDonalds and Pizza Hut if you want that.

The bazaar area is great, just look for the fancy towers - as with all areas just get used to saying no when shopkeepers hassle you but they take no for an answer- again it has loads of bars, shops and restaurants etc.

Trips- there's loads of excursions on offer (all priced in £) including trips to Cairo, Petra and Jerusalem but we'd done those before (well worth a visit) so we did the lazy boat trip/snorkline. Excellent day out including lunch and there was only 8 of us on the boat. My husband went diving with Ocean collge and loved it- well you can't miss that if you're in Sharm.

Hopefully they'll sort out the contracts/management/owner issues etc soon so people can start going back - it's well worth a visit and for the price is a bargain! If you want a good value for money hotel with a great atmosphere, great staff and good location then try it, you won't be sorry. They have plans for a shisha bar and disco upstairs (got a sneaky tour from Sharon and it'll be great when it's done) and a games room downstairs - would love to see that once it's been completed, but whether that's completed or not I'd still love to go back. Obviously if they want an objective reviewer for when that's done then I am available at short notice :)

Finally thanks to Sharon (who has the joy of dealing with any issues some British people moan about on holiday such as lack of diet coke, pool too cold, weather too hot etc and still manages to smile!!!) for organising for the remaining lot of us still left at the hotel a few days ago for us all to have a meal together in the restaurant to celebrate our last few days and Natalie's birthday).

Anyone has any questions just send me a message and I'll do my best to answer them and I'll post some pics soon!

After reading the reviews prior to departure, we were a little dubious but decided to keep an open mind and I’m so glad we did. Initial thoughts on arrival were quite positive although blurred by lack of sleep. These were borne out as on waking that morning, what a surprise we got! A small, attractive hotel (60 rooms I think) in a developing area of Sharm. Many facilities close by (shopping, Western fast food etc).
Pool good and surrounding area too – clean and well kept. Staff were pleasant and polite without exception, food good if not massively exciting, and what food poisoning?? If there was any food poisoning, why didn’t anyone else at the whole hotel come down with it? More like dehydration, too much sun and booze as we Brits don’t tend to handle the sun and daily temperatures in excess of 40 degrees C very well, generally.
Rooms large, clean, great A/C, towel sculptures were class. Beds very comfy.... I never had a poor nights sleep and I’m a fussy sleeper!
The best bit though was the goings on!!! You couldn’t have scripted it if you tried!! Hilarious!!
That aside, we would return in a blink of an eye just for the staff who were all great, especially Achmed and Abdul (the other names we can’t remember). Sharon (guest relations) always ready to chat and muck in collecting glasses or serving at the bar, and the chefs ready to have a bit of fun and banter.

Have just returned from 2 weeks in All seasons Oasis and from the previous reviews don't think I was in the same hotel as previous contributors!
Comments: -
Food -good - basic but tasty but you can't please all the people all the time and can honestly say I was not ill nor did I hear about the rest of the guests being ill apart from one guest who had dehydration
Staff - yes limited in numbers at times but they all went out of their way to provide a good service, and always had a smile on their faces. Sharon - guest relations - fantastic resource , went above and beyond the call of duty to help with any issues that any guests raised
Rooms - very comfortable and clean - some fantastic towel sculptures !
Pool - excellent - very clean , no problems with sun beds
Location - as we are divers we found it excellent - not too far from all the large dive schools, easy access to Old Sharm and Naama Bay.
Hotel is undergoing a change of management, there is a new general manager who is ironing out any creases identified by guests when he has been chatting to them -
Definately would recommend this hotel and are looking foward to returning in May 2011

Well we was not sure what to expect after mixed reviews, but went with an open mind. we were greated by a very friendly receptionist who could not do enough for us we were put in a clean large lovely room with a pool view and excellent air conditioning that was needed all the time,
Abdul the pool attendant was great friendly and always there to help even taking me to the bank when i was unsure where it was, Kalli and Mohamed were great fun around the pool we never had to wait for drinks and when on one occation the white wine ran out Sharon went to get some,
Everyone worked really hard Sharon was very approachable and was there to solve any problems we had or to sit and chat she gave us some great advice about beaches and snorkling places to go.
There were 3 Chefs they were all great but the head Chef was always on hand he would turn his hand to anything we wanted even making a pavalover twice because we asked him to.
Although there were staffing issues we had a great time never been made to feel so welcome by so many people
Thanks to everyone we had a great time

the hotel was very basic.. and was not yet finished when we arrived as we got told.. the staff are lovely and work very very hard all day.. 18 hours a day they work and get no thanks for it!.. the food was horrible and made not just me but everyone else ill in our hotel.. it had the same taste all the time and it was just unbearble to eat, even the cucumber and melon stated tasting dodgy.. so on the 2nd night we eat out till the end of the hotel.. the hotel is very clean and the service is great from the staff there very freindly. all inclusive is good to go though as your getting drinks all day for free.. but it stops at 10pm then you have to pay! also there was no entertainment at all at night wich me and my family found odd as every holiday weve been on ther has been something but here there was not even a hint of it.. maybe they were understaffed i dont no? but one day there was only 2 staff on the bar and the restraunt from 6 am till 1 am the follwing mornin! as 2 staff left when we were there.. im not sure i would recomend this hotel to a friend im sure when its finished it will be better .. cannot fault the staff atall! also the swimming pool is lovely! very big and very clean just too much cloreen!! x
