“Magical Sunshine Holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

My Wife and I stayed at Club Magic Life from 17th to 28th March 2013 and enjoyed every minute.

Being our first stay in Egypt, we were a bit worried about security but there was no problem. Lots of guards and check points but all to keep you safe and secure.

Hotel is large with beautiful grounds for walking off your daily food intake. Main restaurant meals were wonderfull; hot with plenty of variety (but no bacon I'm afraid for breakfast). Thai, Meditaranian and Egyption themed restaurants are all exceptional. Excellent service and again plenty of variety with full waiter service. Highly recommended and worth the 30 minute queue to book (you queue to book for the next day's reservation).

Rooms are clean and kepy tidy. We didn't want to pay extra and settled for a garden view in Block 18. More than adequate; 2 double beds and flat screen tv with English movies; CNN news etc; soft drinks topped up daily in the fridge.

Pool was large and not a problem securing a sun bed at 11:00am (no 06:30 starts here). In March the pool was cold but a welcome relief from the 28 to 34 degree heat (oh yes). Pool bar snacks were limited but adequate. Good quick service and nice to sit around the pool for a coffee/cocktail or two.

For us, the beach was best (not so crowded as the pool). Lovelly stretch of sand to walk on for miles (fine shingle so beach shoes are best). You can also walk along the shallow water and see the coral/fish. Our beach has a long pier reaching to the point where snorkelling can take place to view plenty of fish in the crystal clear blue waters. When we were there several days the red flag was up to stop snorkelling but paddling from the beach was fine. Keep an eye out for the mother camal and her baby. Beach bar was excellent; quick service all day long.

Ultimate desert experience is a must do trip; VIP boat cruise/snorkelling was also great (if you can't swim strongly but still want to try snorkelling to see the fish you are VERY well looked after). We did the 'Friday Feeling' bar visits. Good fun but avoid the all-inclusive drinks upgrade at the Hard Rock Caffee (complete rip off)! Soho Square has to be done, but a bit disappointing; not quite the Trafford Center in the UK.

Plenty of day time entertainment and activities; evening entertainment was adequate (to be honest we were shattered by 10:00pm most nights).

Highly recommended hotel; we will visit again soon and have already booked out next Egypt holiday for 2014 (different hotel as we like to look around) but won't hesitate to try Club Magic Life again in the future.

Negatives/Improvements: Bar service in the evenings could be improved. Also, being the first on the coach pick up service for trips etc a 20 minute drive can take an hour (unless you go by taxi). In March, light to moderated winds can also cause a problem with rattling patio doors.

Room Tip: Block 18 was good; away from the bar noise and near the pool

Returned to a freezing UK 2 weeks ago having spent 11 nights at Club Magic life.
Initial impression upon arrival wasn't that good as we expected a 5 star property to be more impressive. I had e mailed and requested a high floor , west facing , non smoking and that was exactly what I got so a big thank you there. The initial impression did not take long to be changed as it was obvious that the premises were kept in a spotless condition by the dedicated staff who look after our room and also all of the public areas. The Bar and Catering Staff were always happy and made you feel that they were genuinely please to serve you. Special mention needs to go Ayman Mohamed and his partner at the Relax pool Bar , Ahmed " I Know Nothing " in the entertainment area , one of the smiliest people in Egypt and also the Omlette Chef who was a pleasure to see every morning.
Overall a fantastic place which I am sure we will go back to.

Room Tip: Register your arrival details on the Club Magic website in advance. Room 20301 is a corner room whi...

This was my 3rd visit to Magic Life and I have come to the conclusion that 1 weeks is just not enough.
The welcome at Magic life is always warm where you are greeted with a refreshing drink and a hot towel after your transfer.- thanks Khaled I really needed it :D Was also nice to be greeted by staff who recognized us from our previous stays. :) Felt like a home coming. Our room was not ready but that was no fault of the hotels as we were early. But the room was worth the wait. :) Many thanks to Eid in the reservations team who helped me and my mother with our queries on arrival.

The Magico restaurant always has a wide selection of food available. There is a themed night every night but there are alternatives if you do not like the cuisine themed for the evening. Service from the staff is always great from the trainee waiters to the captains and managers. Special Thanks to Mohammed Eid, Mahmoud, Mina, Marcos and Sameh in Magico
Alas this time I did miss the al carte restaurants which I do regret as the food is always amazing.
Also this time took advantage of afternoon tea where the drinks and cakes available were delicious. Sameh and Sayed were always helpful and made sure you did not go without. :)
But this time I did get to spend more time in the coffee shop which has an awesome selection of coffees and cakes. Definitely recommend and take advantage of the balcony seating.

This time due to frailty we spent most of our days round the relax pool. This was the first time I spent time there and its great if you like to just kick back and relax with a good book. The staff at the bar here are very attentive. Metwally and Ayman made sure you were never without, But I am now addicted to the amaretto cappuccino's.

The pool attendants are always helpful. Ali was always aware of what was happening in the area and was attentive to customers needs.

The entertainment in the evenings is always varied. Various themed nights like the romantic party and shows available at the amphitheater. Love sitting in the terrace bar where Mahnoud and Mustafa are again always smiling.
But sometimes took advantage of the quiet eagles bar where again ace service from Sameh and Reda Mohammed. Again special thanks to Shaker and Amgad who were very helpful when my mother needed it.

The grounds and gardens are always spotless and still able to report on my 3rd visit that I did not observe anything that would make me concerned. The Artwork and decoration throughout the grounds is impressive and certain areas the decor changes night by night.
The complex is also very secure.

I know some people say the rooms are in need of a make over but I have always been more than happy with the rooms given to us. There are very comfortable and spacious and I have never had any issues to date,

Great hotel, great staff couldn't ask for anything else.

Room Tip: Block 22 is a very good location. We had a room that over looked the gardens. the block is situate...

After what seemed a life time on the flight to sharm , we arrived at club magic very nice looking hotel , you feel safe there are many security guards all around the complex which is massive and you can get easily lost! the room was very clean and tidy but not 5* in my view. Its very confusing when you get to club magic not alot is explain untill your welcome meeting the next day , but there are three a la carte restaurants and a main restaurants which you dont have to book , you go in sit and waiter comes over to take drinks order, foods ok but not the best . the a la carte restaurants are much better but you have to book , which you do the day before but you have to queue up from about 8.20ish (opens at 9) to be sure you get a table! There are different bars all around but the alcohol is pretty rubbish the wine is terrible and only a few of cocktails are ok! the pools are nice ones quieter than the other , the beach is nice we had few walks up the jetty and you can see some beautiful fish and coral . we travelled with Thompson and went on the vip boat trip which was well worth the money and went to three great snorkelling sites. i did have to vist the doctor in club magic and he was very nice but they offer injections for everything, dont be put off. It was a nice week away , weathers great at this time of year apart from wind some nights but i dont think club magic is a 5 star

A group of eight (four couples) went to Magic Life from the 14th until the 28th March 2013. I was very impressed with the swiftness of the hotel reception in the handling our baggage and booking us all in to our rooms. The rooms were quite spacious, a large bed and plenty of wardrobe space, plus drawers. Our balcony was of a good size, a little over looked but a towel or two placed in the right postion solved that. The balcony over looked the gardens and walkways making it a very pleasant outlook. Our friends had the opposite side which over looked the pool, this was also a nice outlook. There were two pools, one an activity and the other a relax pool. The relax pool was quite difficult to get a sunbed as the early people had the towels out a bit quick. The activity pool, although more people had a lot of beds so it was not a problem to get eight beds close to each other. There were lots more beds on the beach with shades. Meal times were easy as you could help yourself with fish, meats and other foods being cooked in front of you and dishes of just about everything you would want laid out. You could eat in or outside, your choice. We as a group sometimes went inside as it can be very hot or windy. waiters were always ready with the drinks and water. There were daily games around the pool area lead by the enterainments people, joining in was your choice. There was game played on the beach, and a small shallow pool for children who were also looked after by the entertainments people. I enjoyed the Archery under the instructions of a lad named Neida who put you through all the safety aspects before you fired the arrows.Then he went on to show you how to improve your abilities with the bow making it quite an enjoyable experience. There was also the Mountain Bikes which were run by Kamal who took you on varying levels and distances. There was also a ride for the more experienced biker who wished go go on harder and longer rides. All very well done.Helmets bikes and water all provided. A couple of things worth mentioning are the lack of hand sanitizers around eating areas, and that the swimming pools were quite deep for those who are not confident swimmers, and that they are not heated. The entertainment was good and some of the little shows were a pleasure to watch, well done the entertainers. I would like to mention the help we got when we needed some help with some dentistry.I spoke to the Magic Life girl named Lauren who relayed the problem to the Egyptian lady who spoke to the hotel doctor who spoke to a dentist. A ten minute walk took us to the dentist. Within the space of one hour the problem was dealt with to our satisfaction.

We stayed at club magic for 2 weeks, we had fantastic sunny holiday, all staff very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We located ourselves around the relax pool, the bar staff Wally and Ayman made the most amazing cocktails, their iced brandy coffee to die for!! Ali Mohamed the lifeguard always on hand with nice clean towels. We will definitely return to this hotel, we have been to Egypt 5 times and this was the first time without a bad stomach, we put this down to the cleanliness of all areas and the fantastic food being served to us.
