Renaissance Sharm El Sheikh Golden View Beach Resort
Ranked #63 of 231 Hotels in Sharm El Sheikh
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Don't be put off by the unrest near Cairo, Sharm is well guarded and like an independent area totally safe and problem free. The Golden View is part of the Marriott chain so it has everything you would expect from a luxury hotel: excellent service, fabulous architecture, luxurious rooms and an unparalleled attention to detail and guest comfort. My husband and I went there for a well earned two week rest and we were enchanted by our stay. We only took the bed and breakfast option as we wanted to be free to explore restaurants in the area outside the hotel. Obviously if you want to make your stay even cheaper you can opt for the all inclusive formula which covers absolutely all your food and drink.
The hotel is well away from the hustle and bustle of down town Sharm so you will get peaceful nights but still be within easy taxi ride reach of all night fun a few kilometres away. The hotel has a variety of lovely pools descending in layers towards the sea and surrounded by the most beautiful flowered gardens. the sea is mostly coral reef and you can snorkel right off the floating pontoons that allow you to slide into clear water and watch the dazzling multi coloured fish. There are excursions to see more sea life but we found the marine variety just at the hotel extremely beautiful and very accessible. This is a jewel of a hotel and the staff ensure that your stay is an unforgettably pleasant experience.
Of course European and US tourism is low as the media relentlessly reports on the worst aspects of Egyptian unrest. This means that the fearless and fearful Russians dominate but the girls are pretty and although their alcohol consumption is astonishing, it never became a problem. This is a great place to unwind, soak up the reliable sunshine and enjoy the very best sort of relaxing holiday for any age group.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more and get a sea view, it's worth it.

Where to begin.... from the moment of our arrival we were so well looked after a special thanks go to Imir on reception for our fantastic upgrade to the most beautiful and spacious suite. The view over the pool and the red sea was simply breath taking. Khaled the buggy man who took us to our rooms was fantastic he is a real asset to the hotel. We were so lucky to be placed by Acapolco Joes the staff were absolutely fantastic nothing was to much trouble Saad, Hamed, Michael, Amen Sherif the chief and all the team really made our stay so memorable. You simply cannot get a better evening meal food was fantastic as was the cocktails!! I personally am really missing my iced tea. A huge huge thank you to them all. We spend most of our time between there and the Aqua bar and again a huge huge thank you to the team of Khaled, Ahmed Kadry, Ahmed Saad, Ahmed Khalad, Omer and Islam and chief Mohamed. To anyone whose name we have not mentioned we do apologise. All we can say to anyone thinking of going to Sharm you will not get better than this hotel and you will certainly never ever meet better staff. We are already planning our next trip back.

This hotel was a luxury, bit of a walk down to the rooms but you can get a golf buggy.
Spectacularly designed and set in a quieter part of sharm, so you will need a cab into naama although you can just walk 5 mins down the road for some local shops and restaurants.
The hotel is in a good position for diving the reef and you can walk out on a pontoon to reach it.
There is also a great Mexican restaurant within the hotel and very good pools.
We would defiantly stay here again if we ever returned to Egypt which is unlikely.

Room Tip: A sea view room with a glimpse of Saudi in the distance

Location: Its between the old sharm city/market and the new one Marina (Ne'ma bay).
Physical Security are excellent.
Room Service & Facilities (Bed, Furniture and AC) are very good but needs some maintenance.
Pools are great and there is a kids club and kids sandy play area :)
Buffet @ the main Restaurant: Breakfast and Dinner are delicious.
Sea beach is not sandy, only Rocky edges so its good for snorkeling.

Finally the people there are so kind and helpful.

I used tripadvisor to book my 2 week holiday to the renaissance because the reviews were so helpful, i booked this for me and my partner at the time but we ended up finishing before the holiday which resulted in me taking one of my male friends with me and upon arrival we were immediately upgraded to a twin room, also changing from a garden view to a sea view which was very kind of the staff as they did it without us even having to ask. The room was huge with a great view from the balcony, the resort itself was absolutely immaculate, there were always members of staff cleaning/cutting grass/trimming hedges etc. making sure that everywhere looked perfect.. The food in the restaurants was nice, we didnt try the italian restaurant however we spent 9 of our 14 nights eating at the mexican a la carte 'Acapulco Joes', the food was gorgeous and if all inclusive you receive a 100 egyptian pound credit limit each, which you rarely go over unless you order starters, desserts or the fillet steak! The private beach is huge and there are always sunbeds available around all of the 5 pools on resort. The resort itself is absolutely huge with around 5 or 6 different levels from the lobby down to the beach. In addition to all of this, the main thing that made our holiday the best i've ever been on was the staff.. Every single member of staff were so friendly and helpful, and they could never do enough for you. They would never let you carry your own drinks from the bar (trust me i tried), a few of the guys we met would bring us drinks over without us even asking when sunbathing etc, they are just all so friendly and willing to do anything for you and we became really good friends with a lot of the guys here as they all have a really good sense of humour and love to have a laugh with you! I will definitely be returning for my summer holiday if i get the chance to go away next year, and to be honest, i will probably return here regularly as it is the nicest place and best experience i've had on a holiday so far!

Room Tip: We had a twin room with 2 double beds overlooking the sea, if you're looking for that sort of th...

BEWARE! This hotel is not what it appears to be. It has some of the worst service i've ever experienced. I thought it would be nice because it is part of the marriott chain but was i ever wrong. I would never stay at this hotel again what a pile! also location is terrible over 30 mins from the airport

The Golden View was amazing. The hotel is stunning and the view is to die for - the sunrise are amazing! Our room was clean and well maintained, with staff polite and willing to assist. The grounds are well maintained with numerous pools to choose from. We chose this venue for the added inclusion of a fitness centre, and although it is basic, the equipment is modern and adequate for a holiday work out (haha). There are a number of eating choices which were all great, and the hotel facilities were exceptional - including the 'dive in' centre - which allows you to try scuba diving before you book any tours (We had never scuba dived before). We also booked a quad biking tour and the price was reasonable and convenient and the tour was great fun.
The hotel is situated about 20mins (100EP return trip to Naema Bay) - although all tours will pick you up from the hotel anyway.
The hotel security are very reassuring - they take your hotel room number and taxi number before you leave - and given the current environment in Egypt - we found great comfort in this. The only thing to note: there are A LOT of stairs to get to the rooms.
