Dive trip with party of 8. I was impressed with this hotel. I was allocated a room facing towards the front of the hotel - but no road noise or noise from other rooms. The bedroom was of a good standard- comfy bed, spacious, bar, internet, good tv etc. I had a really annoying problem with the electronic door lock - it didn't. The efficient staff were great - taking personal responsibilty and quickly changing the entire lock with the minimum of fuss. The bathroom was clean with plenty of hot water. The air conditioning was efficient. The hotel is ideally located for a stroll into the centre of sharm (or the dive centres). On the negative side .... the pool is a bit on the small side - fine for the winter months but I imagine it would be a bit crowded in summer - also spoilt by the typical cheesy animation team. The music round the pool could put off older guests. The pool bar is a nice place to chill out in the evening - but with more cheesy entertainment. Plenty of choice of pastries/bread/fruit/cereals for breakfast but the cooked foods weren't all that plentiful or appetising by the standards of other top Sharm hotels. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening but it received good reports from other guests. The spa is modern and has some fantastic thai massage options. A bit on the expensive side but if you want to treat yourself the massages are top-notch (try the thai medicinal). I've stayed in a number of Sharm hotels but really rated this one it should appeal to all , families, groups and singles. It's not 5 star but it's on my list of places to stay in Sharm. Recommended.
