Stayed at this luxurious hotel for 2weeks and it was the best 5 star I have stayed in during my 5 visits to this wonderful destination we were greeted by the reception manager who introduced himself and gave us a warm welcome and then we were given some lovely cocktails to drink while we did the usual form filling and then shown to our room the room itself was very large with a king size bed you could have gotten 5 adults in it was huge loads of cupboard space and wardrobe ironing board and iron bathroom was very spacious and modern with a huge walk in shower and bath robes and slippers out to the balcony we were overlooking the pool bar and main activity pool couldn't fault the room location .around the pool was the comfiest sun loungers we have ever laid on and the animation team were always trying to get as many people involved in the various daytime activities but due to the lack of guest numbers it was a difficult task talk about that later .this hotel has 5 a la carte restaraunts as well as the main buffet one which we could eat in as many times we chose to do so on the evening just a matter of booking them on a computer yourself in the reception area with a choice of 2 on any given night with the choice of that day being displayed on the concierge desk along side the computer and you could book up to 2 days in advance choices being Thai our favorite also Indian ,French Italian and the waterfall which served a combination of meat rice or noodles and various veg stir fried in a sauce of your choice all of the a la Cartes were amazing and the decor was extremely well chosen the French being the best for actually sitting there and truly feeling you were in a top notch parisian restaraunt .the main buffet was very nice but we got spoiled by the quality of service and remarkable food of the a la carte that we was using this for only breakfast and the occasional dinner time meal .the swim up pool bar was managed by ghani who if you go to this hotel will find this man to be the best barman in the whole of Egypt not just sharm nothing was to much trouble and he became a very dear friend I just hope he stays there for many years to come because he typifies everything amazing about this hotel cheers m8 for your hospitality it was a pleasure to have drank at your establishment .the night time entertainment was very low key with the usual dancers , fire eaters sketches but well organized if you want to take in a show with the animation team getting people to join in on certain acts .we tended to sit on the terrace overlooking the bay and the spectacular backdrop of tiran island beyond where we sipped lovely cocktails made by Islam in the Churchill bar again what a barman and so funny loved him to bits very genuine and very professional .all in all I couldn't fault this hotel the only fault I did find was down to people listening to much to media coverage about things that is happening probably 400miles away in Cairo and being put off by these and not visiting this wonderful place .all flights had been stopped from Germany Italy Belgium Russia our country was one of the few still operating flights to sharm so I hope that very soon these silly rules will b lifted and people will start to visit in their droves and give sharm the tourist numbers it deserves to survive through these difficult times .go you will also be amazed thanks to all the staff at sunrise for making our holiday a truly memorable one oh one final word keep up the good work Sam and Veronica Guest relations who was always around to listen to anything that would improve this hotel and give it the status it deserves we did mention a couple of things and within a day they were implemented only small things but at least they listened and gave it a go and if everyone where to add a bit then there is no reason why this hotel cannot be amongst the top 5 in sharm tell all the gardeners that the work they do to landscape the grounds all around the complex was stunning a mass of lovely shrubs trees flower beds and neatly trimmed lawns in our eyes your already No 1 just carry on doing what your doing and all your hard work will pay off but keep your prices competitive

Room Tip: Blocks on different levels and most restaurants on the same level as reception and activity pool if you prefer a room nearer the beach then it's a fair old steep walk up to the reception area but there is always the buggies to jump on so not a real problem 3 levels in all

First impressions were excellent! Walked into a lovely air-conditioned marble reception to be met with cold towels and fruit cocktails. The management and staff introduced themselves to us which was nice. We then had our luggage taken to our room and were given a tour of the facilities. The room was spotless and excellent!
The hotel was only 10% full (due to countries not flying here), but this was used to our advantage as we were treat like VIP guests.
A Ghany round the pool bar treat us so well and was always happy to help, one day we missed breakfast and he brought us croissants and pastries and yogurts which was really nice of him!
All staff were excellent here but A Ghany went that little bit further!
We went on a all day snorkeling trip through Thomas cook which was excellent! £45 and we were out snorkeling round tiran island all day.
We went to the waterpark (Cleo Park) which was not very good at all! so we left early and got a taxi back to the hotel which we got ripped off as the taxi driver wanted 150LE (£15) to bring us back then demanded 50LE in tips! we felt uneasy and paid it! the hotel offered to help by tracking him down but we did not have his registration. So make sure you get the hotel taxi which is very good and cheap! they charge 75LE to go to the same place!
We ran out of money and Samantha kindly sorted a buggy to take us to the hotel next door as you can withdraw cash and change money.
We went to Soho square which is really nice but drinks can be pricey! but the shopkeepers leave you alone and they sell good quality items of clothing and watches! It is a modern place and even has an indoor ice rink and duty free shop!
Food in the hotel is excellent especially in the A la carte restaurants. We found the Indians and Thai to be the best, and had a really nice meal in the french, but beware the steaks can be 1 step behind, we asked for medium but was more like medium rare, but this did not bother us as it was still lovely.
The drinks are good, Beer is Egyptian Stella and all cocktails are included.
Overall this is the best hotel we have ever stayed in and will return!

Room Tip: All rooms look good! We stayed in "Azalea" room 2207 and were close to the main pool and had a lovely sea view.

We've just come back from 2 weeks in this amazing resort! and already looking at returning next year. Service was just perfect, the staff at this hotel cannot do enough to please. Especially Ghany from the pool bar and pauala in animation both are real assets to this hotel. Sam from guest relations was really helpful. We done the Tiran Island excursion which was brilliant although there was a lack of drinks. All the A La Carte Restaurants were really nice. The main buffet got a little bit repetitive but was so many restaurants to choose from we only ate there twice. Very confident this will be one of the best hotels in Sharm if not the best! The rooms were really spacious and clean, with a comfortable bed. So many swimming pools to choose from youll never have to worry about finding a sunbed.
Thank you for one of the best holidays Sunrise Arabian Beach!

we had a fantasic holiday is this superb hotel!! The hotel is very beautiful builded and has 5 pools which are all different and slides for the kids :)
The staff is so friendly and try to make your stay more easy and better...special thx to Hany (lobby) Hamada (concierge) Ghany and Mohamed (pool bar) Ramadan (pool) Mamouth (restaurant) and all the others!!!
The a la carte restaurants are all very good (loved the thai and mongolian the best)! The food is the main is good too, although at dinner there should be more choice and the food should be a little more warmer!! For instance the pasta and at breakfast the French toast and pancakes and so ... but the taste was delicious!
The spa is also very nice and the massages wonderful!
The walk down to the beach is breathtaking (vieuw and stairs) but they have golfcarts to take you up and down all day :))
I'm going back to this fantastic hotel!!!

Room Tip: when you're travelling with 3 persons ...a standard room is prefect!!
