Had a lovely 2 week stay at this apartment. All inclusive deal at the resort is a no brainer and great value.
The hotel staff are brilliant and go out of there way for you ( they love the English)
Large resort with lots of steps but shuttle buses run every few minutes to ferry you around.
I would definitely recommend this place to others
Brilliant, friendly, very comfortable, a home from home.
All inclusive is a must at this resort, really great staff who will really go out of their way to look after you.
Snorkelling is just amazing in the crystal clear water.
If you can then try quad biking in Echo Valley it's absolutely fantastic fun.
My wife and I and out 2 boys can't wait to go back to Sharm.
Thanks Gamal for the wonderful week we had a your chalet.

I highly recommend Gamal's chalet. The location is perfect with a wonderful view, close to fabulous beaches which can be accessed by either walking or the resorts free bus which you can catch down the steps outside the chalet. The bus drivers are very friendly and got to know us well.
There are two main beaches situated closely within walking distance of each other that have jetty's on which you can walk out on too. They have prime snorkeling areas around the jetty's so you are able to see the coral reef and fish. The beaches all have bars on but Mustafa from the main beach bar, treated us like family.
Nothing was too much trouble for him.
The pools, specifically the small one if you want it quieter and more relaxed is ideal for you. The main pool would be ideal for family's with children as there are slides available, and a swim up bar.
You have the choice of either self-catering or all-inclusive. We chose all-inclusive and we were treated like family due to being the only Brits on the resort, but don't let that put you off. If you choose self-catering there are big supermarkets called Metro and Carrefour, where the hotel taxi service would be able to take you and wait for you.
The restaurants have different themes each night, most of which were lovely with a wide variety of foods to choose from.
We used the hotels taxi's quite a lot which are cheaper than the ones outside, and the taxi drivers and controllers are very helpful, and recommended us good places to visit such as Hollywood, Nabq Bay, Soho and Naama Bay.
All the staff treated us with the greatest of respect and superb service with a smile specifically Osman and Mohammed Ismaiel from the Lobby Bar (Dragon Bar), Mustafa (Beach Bar), Mohammed (Taxi Controller), Mohammed Zaki (Small Pool) and Mahmoud Ali (Waiter). There are too many fabulous staff to mention.
Thank you to Gamal for letting us stay. We hope to return one day!
We stayed for 2 weeks in Gamals chalet in April 2014. We are a family of 5 having 3 children of 16, 11 & 9. There was lots of space and we didn't feel on top of each other at all. The view was fantastic to walk out to every morning. The grounds and hotel are kept very clean along with the chalet itself. The Egyptians are so friendly and cannot do enough to try and help. We even had our sunbeds saved for us every morning! The reef with its fish is amazing and a must see which is just down the steps on to the jetty off of the beach. The only downside is the Pyramisa Hotel is primarily a Russian hotel, which meant there were no English children for mine to interact with. Having said that we all had a fantastic time and would definitely return.
We booked for two weeks and decided on the apartment as we wanted the privacy. The setting was amazing and during our stay the hotel complex was quiet. Facilities were fantastic, two swimming pools and the beach only a short walk away, where the snorkelling was incredible.
The apartment itself is well represented by the photographs on the website and is well equipped. We cooked most of the time and apart from a sharper knife there was little else we required. Before you travel Mr Ramadan will send you an email with all the information you will need for your stay and was most helpful throughout the process. One of the managers from the hotel will also deal with any queries you have regarding the apartment and trips out etc and he was available to speak with all day.
For most of the stay we were self-catering, shopping in the market was a lot of fun and the fresh food was very high quality. We used Egyptian Pounds throughout our stay and found the exchange rate to be much more agreeable than USD. We opted for all inclusive for the last two days of our holiday, the food was very good and there was lots of it throughout the day. Drinking alcohol was also very expensive outside of the the all inclusive offer - $7 for a Gin and Tonic or $20 per day all inclusive! There are trips organised by the hotel but these were mainly run by the Russian tourist company which operates there, we preferred to speak with the taxi drivers who recommended some places most notably Mt Sinai and Dahab. Both worth a visit.
The Egyptian people are very friendly and most were keen to help without trying to rip you off, they are genuinely happy that you have come to visit Egypt and seem keen to show it to you! There are a lot of Russians in the hotel but we didn't mind too much as we were happy not to speak to anyone.
Overall we were looking for a very chilled out, stress free holiday where we could spend some time together but also have options if we got bored of staying within the hotel complex. It was all this and more - we had a fantastic time and there was plenty to keep us busy if we felt like it. The apartment was a big part of this - it gave us the freedom to do what we wanted but also have all the amenities you would expect from a large hotel.
