Club Magic Life Sharm el Sheikh Imperial
Ranked #18 of 231 Hotels in Sharm El Sheikh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We had a very nice staying thanks to the overall quality of the structure and the high level of the service received. I would definetely recommend this club with only two minus to mention:
1) Room quality - the first Junior Suite was on the first floor and quite depressing (not enough daylight) but asked to be moved to another suite on the third floor and it was much better). Even in the new room we found disturbing the quality of the bathrooms and the insufficient light;
2) quite poor Internet connection and wifi restricted to a pretty small area

Room Tip: Higher floors have better light.

Just got back from a week at club magic life sharm el sheikh imperial booked through thomson. Excellent food with many choices. Omelettes especially good. Staff very attentive and they remember what you drink! You see staff around all the time cleaning. Many activities available if you wish to participate or you can just chill out on the beach- which we did. Cleanest beach toilets I have ever seen.
We were so impressed we will definitely be going back!

Room Tip: Do not bother getting any Egyptian £ for tipping as they take English £ and euros. Also it is diffic...

We went to Club Magic Life 4th to 11th March with Thompsons and thought it was wonderful. There were more food choices than we'd ever seen on offer anywhere, everything you could want to eat, including lovely fresh salads and fruit.
Top marks for cleanliness, a great place if you want lots to do but also if you want peace and quiet, you can find both there.
One of our friend's was ill when he arrived (a virus he'd caught in England before he left). Club Magic Life have a doctor who is there twice a day, he saw our friend 3 times and we all agreed gave him better care than he would of got back in the UK.
Special mention to the entertainment team who work so hard to make sure you have a good time - in particular Aydin, Sezgin, Vanuire, Daniel and Kate.
Thanks especially to Vanuire for the pilates which has set me back on the road to fitness I hope.
Hoping to go back sometimes soon, would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Last minute holiday with my boyfriend and I... came back last night and already depressed and missing the beach!

I think Club Magic Life must be ranked #13 in Sharm El Sheikh because of the staff and the grounds mostly - staff were mostly really friendly and did whatever they could for you and the gardens were beautiful and spotless; the grass was so green which is amazing considering it was over 30 degrees each day.

Rooms were basic yet very clean (cleaned by Ahmed, block 15) , nice size balcony on ground floor, TV which had English films, fridge was refilled daily with water and coke/fanta and air con worked amazingly well because I was shivering. We left a small tip each day on the bed and each day the towel art got better and better (I'm a sucker for towel art). I did however think we may get some dressing gowns since it was 5*..? Electrics were a bit dodgy as well, plug sockets coming out the wall so be careful.

Pool area was nice but mostly sheltered so we tended to go to the beach. The sea is beautiful and even if you don't go snorkelling or scuba diving walking along the jetty when the water was calm I've got some great tropical fish photos and the sea is shallow for some distance so you can walk with the fish swimming around your feet - watch out for jelly fish and not to tread on starfish!

Pool bar is short walk from where ever you sit on beach along with shaded area, toilets and changing rooms. In fact everywhere in the hotel is only a short walk from a bar! I love Pina Coladas and during the day the 'Hakuna Matata' non alcholic cocktail was so refreshing! My boyfriend loved the strawberry daikiris and the barman in the eagles bar took fun in giving it to him in majarita glasses haha!

Foodwise, the choice was good but not extremly vast in the evenings. Chinese night was particulary nice and the Egyptian night. I'm vegetarian and there is plenty of varied salad but did spend most dinners eating the basic pastas as most other dishes had meat or fish in but I honestly didn't mind and couldn't of gone hungry if I tried (the scales have proved it today ha).

Try out the Archery - go earlier on in the holiday as first one will be a teaching session then the next times you can have a go on your own.

Go to the Mai Thai restaurant for lunch instead of the main restaurant - you can order fajitas and they cook them up fresh for you.

As it's out of season in March the entertainment in the evening was lacking a little and the wind did make it harder to sit outside comfortably for long in the evening after dinner. We weren't interested either in going on any excurisions this holiday but seeing the outside of the hotel and the shops nearby (were to be honest, a dump) I think this location of this hotel is ideal for just relaxing but not expecting a riot of a time at this time of year. Plus I think next time I come back, I might dye my hair brown as being young and having blonde hair seems to make me much more likely to be stared at & hasselled.

Lovely time, amazing weather just a few touches need to be done to bring it up to a 5* level.

Just returned from a weeks holiday at Magic Life, Sharm El Sheikh. The hotel was excellent and I can't find anything to fault at all. The room was nicely furnished and was cleaned every day with fresh towels provided each time.
The gardens were nicely landscaped with a variety of plants and trees. The beach was lovely with a good supply of sun loungers and wind breaks provided and also a jetty that you could walk out on and view the colourful fish in the sea.

The restaurants were very good with a large variety of meals to suit every taste. Each night was themed in the main restaurant, for example there was Thai night, and Italian night and the restaurant was decorated in accordance with the relevant theme. The restaurant had both an indoor and an outdoor section which was nice.

All the staff were very friendly and helpful and this helped to make the holiday enjoyable.

There is a gym on site with classes such as step aerobics available, also a spa and beauty place and a hair dressers. Prices for treatments were reasonable.

All in all a great holiday and I would definitely go back to Magic Life.

There is not much more I can add to over 1400 reviews already of this hotel.
We stayed 1st-15th March in a junior suite on the top floor in block 19. The furniture was a little dated but the room was kept immaculately clean. There was a big balcony overlooking the gardens and a separate lounge area.
The staff were some of the most enthusiastic and conscientious we have ever experienced. We tipped only at the end of the holiday and can honestly say only in Eagles Bar did we notice a shortcoming in service as a result.
The complex is that large we never felt trapped and loved spending the days on the beach and looking at the numerous fish from the jetty. You had to be up very early to get your towels on the best loungers by the pools.
The food was varied and plentiful in the main Magico restaurant with a different theme each evening. There were queues for the food and seats at peak meal times- 9am, 1pm and 8pm respectively.
The drinks were not branded but instead the bar staff seemed intent on serving very generous measures of spirits in all drinks. We enjoyed working our way through the cocktail menu as a result. However the beer “Sakara” or “Pharaohs” was of poor quality and seemed watered down. Post evening meal we enjoyed a nice cake and coffee in Café Sissi on the second floor of Magic Tower. Well recommended.
The only drawbacks to our holiday were the quality and timing of the evening entertainment, queuing to book the A La Carte restaurants and the annoying sparrows at mealtimes.
We read reviews on countless hotels in Sharm before booking and having seen some of the other complexes from the beach and spoken to other guests we were happy we had made a good choice.
The weather was windy the first week and quite chilly in the evenings but second week we had no “Red” flags on the jetty and happily sat out each evening in our short sleeves.
The hotel had a good mix of nationalities and there was a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere around the hotel.
Overall, we had a “Magic” two weeks and will look to return in the future.

We have been back just over a week now since we stayed at the hotel. It was a great choice and we had no complaints. I had emailed the hotel and asked for a quiet room and we were given a room on the 2nd floor in block 20....all fine.
The hotel is large but there is always plenty of room but beds near the relax pool get reserved quite early, its best to put your towels out on the way to breakfast. There are plenty of beds and shade around the main pool which is called the activity pool. It has a bar in the center (drinks in glasses and its easy to get served ) and also the club D J who plays music everyday from 10 am onwards till about 5, but it does stop for a couple of hours lunchtime!! Its loudish only if you sit nearby.
The hotel has activities like volleyball,aqua aerobics in the pool and others like zumba, pilataes step and stretch classes....they all run for 45 mins under a covered area nearby - and is a great way to meet people!!
Everynight the restaurant has a different theme it is decorated to match food etc, there is so much choice so we didn't eat at the a la carte restaurants at night. Fab chicken, fish or beef enchiladas made freshly at the mai thai restaurant lunchtime from 12.30 till 4pm.
There is no need to keep tipping as staff have tip boxes near entrances to bars, restaurants etc and they do not expect it everytime they serve you. Evening entertainement is a bit late 9.30 to 10.30 start and stops by 12pm.
All drinks are local but fine, generous measures, cocktails galore plus plenty of staff to serve!!
We did have some windy days so snorkeling was impossible...jetty closed off. Beach good and clean.
One needs to vacate rooms at 12pm but you can shower at the gym ( towels supplied ).
The grounds are green and well maintained by a large staff. It is always clean,

Room Tip: its quieter near the relax pool or the beach but further to walk.
