Once landed in Sharm airport and clearing customs, the hotels staff make the best first impression. Our transfer manager and bus driver were just wonderful and kept us laughing all the way (no stops at other resorts either which was nice!).
Walking into the hotel you are greeted by a marvellous reception area and smiling staff offering a refreshment. The meet and greet was a little long and would have been nicer if we could have gone to our rooms first, but I guess they are scared that you will disappear into the hotel complex and not turn up.
Our room was a pool view, but actually you could see the sea as well. It was very clean and a good size, with a very comfortable bed and balcony. The private beach was lovely and well kept as were the pools (we spent most time on the beach however). The hotel organises daily games or you can just relax if that is what you prefer.
We both very much enjoyed the food in the hotel, be it breakfast lunch or dinner, with a very wide selection to cater for all tastes. There are nightly themes in the different restaurants as well so it is worth checking before deciding where to go. Overall the food standard was very good. The staff working around the pool in the evening were marvellous, especially Mohammed who always took care of us and insisted that I don't tip him as we were friends!
If you like snorkelling it is well worth jumping in the little boat on the beach and going over to Coral Bay. There has been quite a lot of damage done to the reef there, but it is still home to a lot of fish and corals, all of which can be seen walking in off of the beach.
We would definitely go back to Sharm, and would consider this hotel again (generally we like to try new places!) as it was a very pleasant and enjoyable stay.
