Concorde El Salam Front Hotel
Ranked #53 of 231 Hotels in Sharm El Sheikh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Family with two boys 6 and 8 years, all inclusive. We were at Front Hotel (as opposed to Sport Hotel with no direct access to sea).

Family Suites are spacious and well equipped but bathrooms are just horrible. After the first night we changed to a king and twin room with connecting door and sea view at no additional charge! Bathrooms there a lot better, newer, cleaner but still far from perfect. However, you cannot expect the same level as at Concorde Paris or Berlin.

Staff is very friendly and helpful and will do everything to make you happy.

Buffet are rich with a variety of international and local meals. There were never empty bowls as staff takes care of adequate supply. Main restaurant has the widest choice of meals. The problem here is the sparrows i.e. the pillows on the seats on the terrace should see a washer from time to time. We spent every lunch at the restaurant at the seafront that offers "only" 4 different salads, 5 or six main courses, a soup and 4 or 5 deserts. This restaurant is bit more quiet, more personal and the view is great. We usually had continental breakfast at the Italian restaurant (all perfect) but did not feel the need to try lunch there although it looked quite appealing.

Three pools with different temperatures from 25 to 31 degrees celsius. Water clear, quality seems very good. No red eyes ever. All pools are maximum 1.2 meters deep. Plenty of towels. Drinks supply at all pools (softdrinks, beer).

90% of guests from Russia and Ukraine. Very cultivated, quiet and pleasant people. Our boys made friends with other kids. Haven't seen anybody seriously drunk but we mostly went to the room before midnight.

House reef is beautiful for snorkeling!

Now the big minus: There was this huge construction site in May 2013. There is a Hilton on the north of the hotel and next to this Hilton there is a construction site where they work with heavy machinery on solid rock. There is a permanent hammering noise. So, I would only go maybe in a year or so when the noise is over.

Room Tip: Better choose two deluxe rooms instead of family suite!

The beauty of this hotel is worth a mention.I was absolutely taken away by its architecture and furnishings. Beautiful Egyptian masterpiece.
But that's not all, for I so loved the staff.
Their eagerness to help you, the way they politely greet you when you pass by them and Concorde' s generosity was touching.
The health club is lovely with enough equipment to keep you fit and their cuisine is lovely too.
I loved the fact it's near the airport which was awesome after a tiring flight.
I just wish they would add some computers in the crew lounge but the delicious fresh apples in the lounge were appreciated and so were the bitings for breakfast.
And there's free wifi all over the hotel ground,thanks.
My favourite staff was Sharif at the reception.
Thank you Sharif for your wonderful welcome to our group and we absolutely enjoyed our stay.
My compliments.

Just stayed for 7 days and would recommend this hotel to anyone and iv stayed in Hotels all over the World. Overall really good value for money and in a great location just 2 mins from Soho Square and 15 mins from Naama. Food is so-so as is the case in 99% of AI,s but there's always something worth eating. The pool is great and the snorkelling off the beach is out of this world! The entertainment generally goes above and beyond also. The rooms are great but we did stay in a deluxe so not sure what the cheaper ones are like. The staff, in every department are a credit to the Hotel and can't do enough for you and are always friendly. Only down-side, which isn't the hotels fault, is the Russians which make up about 75% of the guests. They are truly horrible, arrogant, rude and disrespectful. They talk to the staff like animals and at dinner in the last day one literally tried to tip me out of my chair so his fat wife could have it. This isn't an dramatisation, this actually happened. They are so bad that the staff give you special treatment when they find out your British. Please don't let this put you off though, as despite the Russians, this is still a great Hotel and I will be returning.

When travelling with a young baby you need water to prep bottles and wash them up but have learnt that this hotel provides bottled water by the cup but they won't give you it in a bottle, even though they have them! for any parents out there with young babies expect to pay for these bottles of water along with a kettle who would of thought water and a kettle this is a 5* hotel! Sensatori hotel gives you as many bottles as you need, go there instead the extra you will pay on your holiday would of paid for those bottles of water.

Great location, a 2 min walk to Soho Square, perfect for a relaxing eve out. Good for smoking shisha and shopping without Hassel. Restuarants new and very good. You can smoke shisha on the balcony overlooking the sea at the hotel which is lovely, in the piano bar. Free wifi and afternoon tea in piano bar was perfect between lunch and dinner. Snorkelling is great here, safe and easy with life guards. Beach is cool, if you enjoy music while you sunbathe. Gorgeous hammock tents to reserve. Plenty of places to get little refreshers throughout the day too. My boyfriend and I wanted to totally relax so we found a lovely breezy spot over looking the sea. All staff are friendly and can't do enough for you. Naama bay is about 20 mins away, hop on the hotel shuttle but reserve your place in advance. They pick you up 2 & half hours later which is perfect.
Hotel is stylish, clean, good food, classier than some hotels in sharm and great value. I was so impressed when we arrived outside that i thought the driver had made a mistake as the photos don't do it justice except the one of the infinity pool over looking the sea. Very romantic! After staying in different parts of egypt iI would recommend sharks bay and the concorde el salam it to friends.
