This was my first time to Sharm, we went in December.
The rooms were large and clean with excellent room service. We did have a problem with a drain overflowing in the bathroom but this was sorted out very quickly when we notified reception.
The food is excellent and had choice for me as a veggie. The other people in my group did get upset tummies during our stay but in terms of hygiene the hotel does everything it can. The staff are always ensuring it's clean. The problem is the guests not using the alcohol gel and then touching the food.
We had to call the hotel doctor during our stay and he was very pleasant and inexpensive. He didn't try to get money out of you.
The hotel is right on the beach which is kept very clean and has floating jetties for swimmers.
The entertainment is very poor on the whole although one evening there was a good performance during dinner.
When we booked it stated the hotel had a spa. It's actually an independent spa on the hotel grounds. I use the term spa loosely here. It was manned by 2 men and as a woman I wouldn't have felt comfortable going in there or having a treatment.
The trips are good value but do book with your travel company as egyptian companies are unregulated…
All in all a lovely stay with impeccable service.
