A friend and Myself stayed here from 8th-15th July.
The Hotel was lovely very clean and tidy and plenty of space. We had a twin room with views of the very well landscaped hotel gardens, the room itself was very nice, which was a surprise as some reviews we had read had indicated that rooms were poorly decorated. ours was lovely. Our cleaner was very dedicated to keeping the room clean and we were given fresh towels every day even on the days when we had hung them for reuse.
The staff at this hotel are very dedicated to ensuring your holiday is an amazing experieince and this goes from the bell captains who transport your luggage all the way through to the hotel management, everyone is always smiling, they work very long hours here for very little pay but are always on hand with a smile and a hello.
The entertainment team will try to ensure you are involved in the evening activities around the bar terrace area and are not offended if your not the type of person who like to join in they will always sit and have a chat with you ask how your holiday is going etc, The hotel has themed nights in the main restaurant, they do some amazing vegetable scultptures and used some very good props to bring theme to life, to say they make and effort is an understatement. the food is very good and there is something for all tastes, even people with allergies, i have a nut allergy so where food description labels were not available just asked the chef if it contained nuts, this was mainly around the deserts.
We would highly recomend a trip to the egyptian speciality restaurnat this is 4 courses of lovely food and your waiter will contiue to fill your wine glass, then after the meal you are invited to the sofas to partake in the shisha pipes.
All the bars in the hotel are very good and the bar staff are very good at remembering your drinks orders, there is an extensive cocktail menu well worth a try, and the rose wine is ok with a meal. The Hotels disco makes for a nice late night dance and the DJ plays some very good music, the drinks in here are also part of your all inclusive and then when that closes at 2pm you have the 24 hours bar if you still wanted to stay up. All the water is served bottled so no concerns there. In your room the small fridge contains two bottles of soft drink and a bottle of water which are replaced daily if you use them.
The sea in the area can be quite choppy at times but there is a life guard at the end of the jetty all day and the area around the jetty is roped of with bouys etc, this is a lovely cooling part of the day and even for the none swimmer the jetty offers a great chance to see some amazing sealife around the coral. Take some water shoes for entering the sea on the beach as this is rocky in places as close to the coral.
Outside of the hotel there is also lots to do, within 20 mins walk you have a wide choice of restaurants which iniclude TGI fridays, and soon to open hard rock cafe, there are also numerous shops to venture to for your souveniers. We went to the Old sharm market with the reps on a monday evening this is an experience but not recommended for those not willing to haggle on the prices, we also went to soho square this is a really good evening out with lots of activities to take part in including bowling, cinema, ice rink they also have the ice bar and a nighclub for the adults, there is also plenty of shopping here and a number of reasonably priced restaurants to dine at.
Overall we had a really good holiday here and are already anticipating a return trip. We would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting to visit sharm especially those visiting Egypt for the first time like my friend. Be aware that during July and August it is very hot here so make sure you take plenty of high factor sun creams and something to cover your head as the scalp can become burnt quite quickly.
Looking forward to a return trip soon.
