Stayed 06 feb to 16 feb 2014, 10 nights as a couple £637 each from Gatwick. Bargain! Read generally good reviews before booking, but, a couple of bad ones which on returning home seem very unjust.
We observed a very good team, from the always on show management if you needed them, to very attentative staff in all departments. The only negative was the over attentive "spa sales" team.
The Entertainment team, did just that! They have masses going for all ages all day long, some of it is done around the activity pool, or if you want just to be quiet you can use the relax pool. Negative of the pools are the minimum depth is 145cm. The hotel is very well designed, everything on hand, not noisy, music contained in the evenings, always a good quiets night sleep, but, very good entertainment every night.
The bars, cafe, restaurants are very good. Resort has 3 a la carte, only did one which was lovely, but, main restaurant was so good and had so much choice always ate there. Never had any stomach upset,
Had a room overlooking the quiet pool, always clean, well furnished, comfortable with good Egyptian Linen.
The beach is great, loads of sunbeds, bar, toilets, changing facility, pier for snorkelling, loads of fish can be seen off pier if you don't snorkel. DO NOT FEED THE FISH!
The only thing that lets the hotel down are some of the guests! There is no need to put your towel out first thing in the morning! Wash your hands! DO NOT FEED THE FISH!!!!!!!!
Sharm airport on arrival was absolute chaos, lots of flights arriving at the same time, no real system in place to process people through and it ended up as a free for all, only 3 egyptian agents processing arrivals, too much red tape! Went into the toilets on the way home, (disgusting at best) and thats just the gents, the toilet attendant would have made a good statue outside, standing round doing nothing. Sharm Airport needs to pull its socks up, its putting people off and costing Egypt business!
Thomson service very good as always and Travco reps very helpful.
Overall, would definately recommend "club magic life", something for everyone. Don't be put off by the few negative reviews, unless you are naturally miserable you will I promise you have a fantastic holiday!
