Ten of us stayed just here after new year 2013,so 5 rooms of which 2 had no hot water for 2 days.
Service was slow all week,they new a group of 10 would dine each meal time not once was a table ready.
All 10 of us fell ill during the week with severe stomach cramps and diarrhoea,although the food looked good it was never served hot enough !
The beach area is the worst ive ever been on and I have been around a few,sunbeds 3 rows deep which filled the beach like sardines all packed with rude,ignorant Russians so a no go area.
unable to access sea from the beach due to coral so pontoons the only way in which renderd wifes who were not strong swimmers unable to swim,infinity pool freezing and I mean freezing.
Rooms average for the price we paid but all inclusive a very poor deal low standard local drinks.
Soho square Namma Bay like Blackpool will never return,we wish we had gone on the Cruise ship whose passengers were on the same flight...our advice give the Concorde a wide berth there are better holidays around for a lot less than we paid !!
And dont forget you will be awake at 5am every morning due to the local religeous customs.

It was an excellent experience with great restraunts, The pools were always clean and there was an activity pool where you could play Water Basketball as there were two goals and a volleyball net in the pool. The pool bars have excellent food and the food can be delivered to your sun lounger

My mum and I decided to return to the Concorde El Salam for a Christmas getaway, after previously visiting in May 2011.

The hotel has had a few renovations since then, mainly the piano bar - but overall, we were very pleased again with our time at the hotel. The waiters are always very polite and attentive, and were always on hand to warn off the occassional drunk Russian man harrassing us in the evening. That is the only downside to visiting at Christmas - the hotel is predominantly Russian occupied during this time of year. They are generally quite rude and we wouldn't return to the hotel at this time of year for that very reason. It wasn't very nice to see the way they spoke to the waiters, who were always on hand with drinks etc.

Other than that, we had another lovely, clean and modern room and a pleasant stay. There is always a big selection of cuisine to choose from in the evening.

Sharm at Christmas does have much shorter days than expected. Still very hot from 9 - 3pm, dark at 5pm. Boat trips (VIP version) that can be ordered through reception is highly recommended as a day out.

We would return - just not at Christmas!

Room Tip: Try to avoid staying at the Sports complex - it is a bus ride from the main hotel and its ammenities...

I have just returned from this hotel after 10 nights over Christmas and New Year. I think it is only correct to balance the opinions you can read on here. The hotel is a very good quality "Egyptian Hotel". The standard is very good, the food is very good .. For an Egyptian Hotel. I guess overall it is probably 4 star. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough to help you. Outside of the Hotel is horrible! The hotel is split into two parts, the sea side of the main road is great and the pool is great, the picture in the brochures etc. The Sport part of the hotel is a dump! It reminded me of Butlins in the 70's and we could not wait to get back across the road again and back to the beach. The Sport hotel is at best 2 star! Leave it to the Russians. Oh yes, the Russians. 70 percent of the people in the hotel are Russian or from ex-Soviet block countries. Yes they are rude, yes they are greedy and yes they pretty much keep to themselves. (Ladies don't expect any doors to be held open for you by them). Finally, our deal was all inclusive and we enjoyed ourselves because the weather was great and we did enjoy the food. So we would go back in winter ... But we would make sure we had a sea view room. I hope this helps explain things.

We went to the Concorde hotel on a family holiday, where a few of the family members had already been to the Concorde!

Check In was swift, with no problems - allocated two key cards for our room.

We were in room 163, which is located right next to one of the main pools! The room had two beds, which we pushed together (and the staff left together throughout our holiday). The beds were firm, comfy and clean. The room had free air conditioning (but we didnt need it as it was december!), a flat screen TV (which had some great movie channels), plenty of storage spage for clothes and all our things, a small table and chairs, and a fridge. The room was always clean, and the bathroom was clean with towels changed daily on request. The only thing that lets the rooms down is the need to pay for a kettle if you want one, rather than one being in the room (which would be a really nice touch)!

The food was good, with a fair amount to choose from. The food was warm and tasty, although some days the combinations were a little odd! The oriental night was my favourite, but it wasnt what I was expecting, with a lot of greek/turkish food rather than the spring rolls i expected to be greeted with!

The staff were wonderful and helpful, we made sure that we tipped good service. They were always polite and respectful!

The swimming pool was lovely, we found ourselves in the heated swimming pool with a small bar near to it - heated at around 29degrees! The infinity pool isnt heated and was a little cold but very refreshing on christmas day!!!

The location of the hotel is close to the airport, and whilst we could hear some plane noise, it really didnt seem as close as it really was. There was a supermarket just outside the main gates of the hotel, and the "soho square" of shops which is about 10 minute stroll down the road.

Using the spa facilties was lovely - very relaxing! We paid for a massage which was lovely and very relaxing - well worth it as a treat we wouldnt normally have at home!!

Overall a lovely hotel, with friendly staff, and good food - would consider going back there if we were to visit Egypt again!

Been here before two years and was so good then decided to come back. Big mistake :( wont be coming back again. I never complain but no hot water to shower with is a basic need. Hotel reception just shrugged shoulders and said sorry.
