“Best snorkelling location ever !!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

This hotel just screams .... Fantastic time!!

The standard of luxury in every aspect is evident. Fabulous rooms overlooking the Red Sea, many swimming pools to choose from, one with the lazy river you can be propelled around on a floaty, a variety of restaurants providing lovely food of different cuisines. All just fabulous.

But the real draw for this hotel is the location. Right on the Garden Reel of S El S. Just push off the Hyatt jetty and you are above one of the best snorkelling reefs in the entire world!

If in any doubt, just view the flotilla of dive/snorkel boats heading for the jetty area every single morning and throughout the day, to drop off their daytrip-paying clients to where your doorstep is !!

Overall .......... Fabulous Hotel, fantastic amenities and an even better location.

Room Tip: splash out and go with a sea-view deluxe room.

Dear Gordon,

Thank you very much for staying with us at the Hyatt and positive review. I am very pleased to read that overall you enjoyed our hotel, the facilities and services provided.

Indeed we are very fortunate with the prime location of our hotel, with the house reef just at our door step, considered to be one of the best locations for diving and snorkeling, which is the reason for attracting many passing by boats for a stop.

We hope to welcome you back again soon, let us know if ever we can be of any assistance.

Sincerely and with kind regards,

Stefan Gaessler

Diving was our priority.
So looked for a hotel with onsite dive school.
Sooooo pleased we booked the Hyatt. The meet & greet at the airport was swift.
Check in calm.
Whisked off to our rooms. Quiet & away from the main area as requested.
Large comfortable room. With tons of storage. Massive comfortable bed. Quality linens.
The on site dive centre were friendly and very accommodating.
Novice divers are looked after with compassion.
Adel was always around to assist.
And he makes a great cuppa after a dive.
Very good value for money.

The pools and service at the pools was fab.
Heny makes a great 'secret' non-alc cocktail.
Our last day was Sunday 26th May.
There was 1 chap covering the pools drinks service. He ran round like a nut case in 40c ensuring that we all had our drinks & snacks when we wanted them.
(Tall chap wearing a straw cowboy hat, Can't remember his name) really lovely friendly fella.
Breakfast has everything we could ask for.
Clean and cool.
Ramy was our guy, funny and helpful.
Enjoy Chester Ramy. Faultless service.
Asmaa on the reception of Fresco is a lovely lovely girl with a smile that oozes warmth.

We are planning another trip back to The Hyatt in a couple of months.
Why would we go anywhere else?

Thanks to all for a great holiday.

This Hotel truly has an amazing staff. They are all very polite & extremely helpful. I just spent 3 nights there ( checked out today 1st of June 2013 ) with my in-laws booked a total of 3 sea-view rooms .. we all had great fun & enjoyed the facilities of the Hotel ..
The only Negative comment i have would be that this hotel needs some maintenance & renovation .. not all doors locked properly on your first try, not all lamps on room doors were fixed in place properly & we had a slight problem with adjusting the A/C in our room but was corrected promptly. Other than that The massages are excellent , pool staff are great especially a guy named Bassem who was always very happy to help .. The Stars music bar is a very nice place if you're looking to chill out with excellent service, delicious drinks & remarkably comfortable seating.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the beginning of the corridor for a better view .. for example room 2201 has a bett...

Thank you again Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh. Amazing staff and facilites. Nothing is too much trouble. This time I treated myself to a Swedish massage in the Olympus Spa which was fantastic.

Unfortunately I was quite ill during my stay, but the on-site doctor and nurse took such great care of me and had me back on my feet enjoying my holiday in no time. They visited me all through the night to make sure I was recovering well and monitor my progress. The hotel manager also sent me fruit and juice as a 'get well soon'.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of me during my stay. I can't wait to come back again.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a sea view. I think you can't lose here.

The hotel is extremely clean, there is an air purifier in the room, the staff are friendly, the king size room included a full sofa and was very roomy. Only negative for me is that it has a shower, but no tub. The shower is large and clean, I am just a tub person.

If you are undecided on whether it is worth up grading to the Regency Club I can assure you it is worth it. The service on all levels was excellent, the rooms tranquil, the beds & black out curtains endanger the loss of a morning. Private beach & pool away from the masses ensure that you are shut off from the real world for the stay.

There are some downsides. At least once a day the private reef is invaded by 4 charter boats of snorkelers.This also occurs off the main Hyatt beach - it just shows what a good spot the hotel has on the reef. You also have the usual problem of people bagging beach tables and chairs very early in the morning and not always using them. This does happen everywhere so no fault of Hyatt.

The main restaurants where all good but I could not say that any one shone as a top class. Cascades was the best value, Souk the most entertaining but the posh pool side restaurant was very expensive for not great food. Beware the Mosquitos, they bite.

Room Tip: Regency club the way to go. Get up early to grab a spot in the shade by the sea or the pool

Dear Hyatt Guest

Thank you very much for your visit, I do agree, the upgrade to the Regency Club is definitely worth the extra money, considering the additional benefits and luxuries i.e private pool and beach, lounge for continental breakfast in the morning, cocktails and canapees in the evening, as well as free WIFI in the lounge.

Indeed our house reef is considered as one of the best spots in the area for both, divers or casual snorkelers, often sought by dive boats and their external visiting guests. Due to the public nature of the beach not much we do about, even though we do communicate with local authorities if 'traffic' gets out of hand.

Thank you for your comment on our restaurants, which I would think is offering something for everyone's taste, from Cascades Grill and Seafood, Sala Thai which i would consider as one of the best dining venues in Sharm, over to the Souk with his multi kitchen concepts, or the traditional buffet offerings in Cafe Fresco.

We would hope to welcome you back to our resort again the future, please do let us know if we could be of any assistance with your arrangements.

Best regards
