Reviewed January 3, 2014

Third time at this resort over the christmas and new year period over 4 years - which speaks volumes. Very close to the old market and to Raz Katy. Always a warm welcome from the hotel staff.

My only criticisms would be:
- to create a more lively atmosphere at the bar by the beach and to put good dance music on (the yodelling cds didn't get us up to dance!). The DJ last year went AWOL and this years didn't exist... : (
- to be a bit more conservative and consistent with the drink measures at the hotel bars - as a glass of gin doesn't make a good gin and tonic!

My mum and I booked a two week holiday to Egypt this summer. We were supposed to be doing a stay and cruise on the Nile, but unfortunately due to the issues this was cancelled. We decided to still stay for the two weeks and make the most of our holiday.

We arrived at night time, to warm and friendly greetings by the security and then by the lobby staff. The lobby itself was light and airy and was beautiful to behold. We were checked in and our luggage put to one side, and were shown to the dining room for something to eat.

For the remainder of our trip we spent our time wiling away the hours by the pool or down on the beach. Drinking our body weight in cocktails and soft drinks (we went all inclusive.) The people working at the hotel were extremely friendly and willing to help in whatever way they could.

We went on a few excursions which was shown to us by our holiday rep, who was very friendly and helpful.

I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel to everyone and would definitely go back if given the chance. Great central location to Sharm El Sheikh and right on the beach. Friendly and extremely helpful staff made for an amazing and truly unforgettable trip.

Room Tip: We had a room that was adjacent to the pool, but I heard mention from other guests that all rooms we...

This is the first time that we have booked the same hotel 2 years running. I guess that speaks for itself. The staff are so attentive whilst not being overbearing, that you feel that you're really getting a personal service. There's a very good chance that we may be back here again next year!

First of all before I write this review I want to say we had a lovely restful holiday in the sun. I went to celebrate my 60th Birthday.
When arriving in the dark wasn't sure what to expect. We were led to what seemed to be a school room to fill in forms! We were given our room which on first appearances was fine.
I don't think the room had been used for a while and had a number of things wrong. However they were corrected very quickly the next morning. (Room 4336) I wanted to sit on the balcony but not to be as it was on the service road/corner of the hotel. It had a beautiful sea view as requested but it was very noisy from a disco next door and there was a petrol smell from all the white vans picking up the divers.
The hotel was ok it didn't give me the wow factor as some hotels in Egypt have given me in the past. It seemed to take us a couple of days to settle. Don't know why!
I have been all over Egypt for many years.
The staff were all very nice and checked that you were ok. Special night on the 24th Dec. The dining room was beautiful. We were given a Christmas present of a chocolate santa and a little statue. It was a nice gesture.
On some days the food was not always hot but did improve as the week went on. The worst was curry night when I panicked that I wasn't going to eat but a very kind chef made me some plain chicken.
Sabry served the drinks round the pool and bar and always remembered what you had. He was very good and it was noticeable when he had the day off.
There were lots of comfortable seating around the hotel. Some of the sunbeds round the pool were a little tired and needed checking.
As I said at the beginning we had a lovely holiday but there was just something missing!!!!

Having just came back from Egypt and staying at the Palace we cannot say enough of how great this hotel is. On arrival and checking in we had a welcome from the hotel rep who then mentioned to us about my wife's coeliac disease (gluten free) which she then proceeded to get the Executive Chef to come see us. He took us all around the restaurant showing how we could identify what she could eat.
Going around the hotel all staff were pleasant and friendly and could not do enough for you it was like having an extended family.
We will be going back again next year for Christmas and New Year.

Room Tip: All rooms are good who needs a suite when your in the sun!!!!

We stayed in the Iberotel palace from 5th to 16th Dec 2013 and loved every minute. We couldn't get the same room as last year but got one in the same row and was just the same. Hotel is lovely and clean, rooms are lovely and comfortable. The area in and around the hotel is beautiful, the gardeners keep it lovely. The staff, well what can I say but are all very friendly and can't do enough for you. mustafa and Sabry (waiters in the bar) were a delight to chat to as well as the deputy bar manager who made me his special cocktails and also Sabry cocktails which were delicious. Amazed that they remembered us and they always make you welcome. The chefs were helpful and made anything you wanted and how you wanted it. Sunbathe on their private beach it's so nice and the staff find a bed and carry your towels to the bed. Entertainment was better this year and now that it's a couples hotel makes it even better. Can't wait to go back next year as it's so relaxing. Thomson aircraft could be cleaner.

Room Tip: The two blocks overlooking pool area and blocks overlooking arena are lovely.

We couldn`t agree more with the previous reviewer,titozer. This was our 6th visit staying from the 13th to the 27th December. The variety and presentation of the food for the Christmas gala dinner was excellent. How they make up the wonderful displays in such short time is amazing. We also have been to many 5 star hotels around the world and would rate the Iberotel Palace among the best for the quality of service and food. All the staff are excellent and are a credit to the hotel. We have already booked to return in February.
