“August 15-22nd, fantastic holiday. Lovely Hotel”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

My family have just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely Hotel. Great bedrooms,1 Regency Suite & and 1 twin sea view room. Loved being on the ground floor able to walk out into and across the gardens to the pools and beach. Fantastic snorkelling of the pontoon and also walking into the sea off the beach, slightly ruined by lots of diving boats which appear at the Hotel in the afternoons.
All the staff were lovely and very friendly, always asking if we were ok and wanted anything. Food was great, loved eating in the Souk at night, and the beach restaurant for lunches.

Hotel was very very empty though. only bad thing was on our last day our rooms had no water.

Dear Mrs Isabel

Thank you very much for staying with us, we very much value your support in these for Egypt difficult times, at the same time we look forward to a gradual recovery and stability in the country.

I am very pleased to read that overall you have enjoyed your stay with us, indeed the passing by boats can be disturbing, due to the public nature of the reef unfortunately beyond our control.

Apologies for the issue with the water which was related to a broken main pipe.

We would hope to welcome you back in the near future, please do contact us if ever we can be of any assistance.

Sincerely and with kind regards

Stefan

The place is very nice .. the layout of the resort is fantastic .. the location and organization of the swimming pools are very good. The reception staff is very nice and helpful, thank you Sara and your colleagues. The sea view from the rooms carrying numbers 55xx is fantastic. The Tunnel which connects the swimming pools area with the sea beach is a very nice idea (allows you move away from the burning Sun rays in summer). The only cons we noticed is the "flys" which was seen in the breakfast restaurant some days. Also, some electric appliances in the rooms are low quality. I strongly recommend the hotel for nice stay.

Room Tip: Rooms with numbers of 55xx are having very nice sea view

Dear Hyatt Guest

Thank you for your visit and staying with us.
Very nice to read that overall you have enjoyed your stay with us, indeed the flies occasionally can be a plague, this despite our daily fumigation efforts. Yet i will have a look again to eventually show some improvements in this regard.

We would hope to welcome you back again in the near future, please let us know if we can be of any assistance.

I sincerely hope that I will be able to return to my favourite hotel "Hyatt Regency" once again this year, due to leave in three weeks. However, the Dutch government, in line with other European countries, may decide to cancel all flights to Egypt, including the Red Sea Resorts. I guess I must be in the minority to not want to cancel my vacation at the present time. Sharm is safe and I know from my many visits to the hotel that security is by far outstanding. I cannot emphasise enough that there have been no incidents in Sharm El Sheikh which incidentally is miles away from Cairo. Having read previous reviews it seems clear that many people in the last few weeks have indeed enjoyed a peaceful/relaxing vacation at the Hyatt Regency. If you are in any doubt about travelling to Sharm el Sheikh please reconsider I know you will have an excellent vacation at the Hyatt Regency where your safety will be of the highest priority. Egypt is a beautiful country and of course relies tremendously on their tourism. Egypt together with it's citizens need stability I very much hope this will happen in the very ear future.

Dear Karol Lynne

Thank you very much for your review and contribution. Indeed some difficult times again we are all going through, even in Sharm we were all fortunate enough for not having to experience any violence as it unfortunately was the case in and around Cairo. Rather the contrary, Sharm has been as peaceful as ever and those guests who are currently still coming, do enjoy themselves to the maximum due to general lower occupancy.

We would hope for a general and continuous speedy recovery, which surely will bring back tourists from various parts of the world, and I would always recommend to stay in touch with the hotels as well as to follow the travel advises from the embassies.

We would hope to welcome you back soon, please do let us know if we could be of any information or assistance.

Kind regards

We stayed at the Hyatt for a twelve night stay in mid April to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary and the hotel made our special day a truly unforgettable one for all the right reasons ( this for us was visit number nine ! ) .
Our last stay was some eighteen months previous , not due to the political situation that Egypt is sadly going through , but because we did some travelling to the Far East .
From the moment we walked into the Regency Club lounge we realised how much we had missed the Hyatt . We were greeted like long lost friends and the staff all knew that it had been a long time since our last visit . Special mentions must go to the club team , Julia on the front desk , Mahmoud , George , Erhab , Mohamed and Akram who all worked tirelessly to ensure every guest was taken care of , the team behind the scenes that you don't get to see and of course Reda the Club manager who always ensures that each stay is perfect ... A huge thank you to you all !
Some changes to food menus had taken place and the most noticeable being to Cascades evening speciality menu ... This was great before the change but now there is a format of a set menu and pricing is reasonable . Many thanks to Mahmoud and his team in Cascades for their personal service and for providing a meal that was no longer on the menu with no problem ! These guys are fun and they are only concerned with the fact that you have a truly fantastic meal .
The Beach House is a fabulous location to have a lazy lunch with great views and the lobster is superb .
A special mention to pool butlers Tawfik and Little Reda who have previously looked after us and the word soon spreads when repeat guests have returned and you will have a steady stream of visitors at your lounger to welcome you back and to make sure that you are being looked after ... In all our years of extensive travelling we have never encountered this level of personal service , it truly is amazing and I hope that all the management are aware of what exceptional service all of their staff consistently deliver.
Bassem was our pool butler at the Club pool and again his attention to detail was second to none , he seemed to know at exactly what time we liked our favourite drinks etc and they just seemed to magically appear !
The spa is good and the treatments are very good , Pai was my therapist for all my treatments and was superb . The spa prices are what you would expect from a five star hotel as are food and drink prices , but in our opinion you get what you pay for and in all our visits we have never had a poor meal , from room service to Sala Thai , all are excellent , we cannot comment on cafe fresco for dinner as we are not fans of buffet style eating , but breakfast there is amazing if you choose to eat there .
Now onto diving ... One of the main reasons we frequent the hotel as often as we do . The hotel is located on the the Gardens reef which is one of the best sites in Sharm and it is due to this that so many dive / snorkelling charters moor here during the day . The team at Red Sea Waterworld are extremely professional and safety is paramount , and offer a wide range of diving and snorkelling programmes.
We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite and these are enormous and the housekeeping team do an exceptional job .
There is a fully equipped medical centre on site and always staffed with a doctor .
The landscaping of the hotel is truly spectacular and is lovingly tended to every day , this must be a mammoth task as the grounds are spread out .
There is a buggy service to take you around the hotel , which is sometimes greatly appreciated in the heat of the day !
Thank you to Ahmed who regularly came to see us and ask if we wanted to be driven anywhere and if all was well with our stay , we have known him for a long time and always enjoy our chats with him.
This hotel and its staff have a special place in our hearts and we look forward to our return in late November for some wonderful Egyptian hospitality .
Lastly , a thank you to Stefan , the hotels General Manager , always takes time to speak with guests , ensuring that their stay is what they expected and for making our anniversary meal even more special with a little surprise ! Stefan please pass on our thanks to everyone we have mentioned and also to the rest of the team that are behind the scenes and are sometimes forgotten . We look forward to seeing you and your team in late November .

Dear Gary & Karen,

Thank you very much for your continuous stay and loyalty to our hotel. I am very pleased to read in such detail that you have again enjoyed you stay with us. Be assured i will pass on your comments to all our teams with special mention to all those associates who you have identified by name.

Even though the last few weeks again have severely affected tourism in general, we remain optimistic for a gradual recovery. Throughout the tragic events in and around Cairo, Sharm El Sheikh had not been affected and was as peaceful as ever.
it is therefore with loyal 'Sharmers' as your good selves to spread the word and to return for many more times in the future.

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

It was our 4th visit to Hyatt regency and all I can say is. WOW! We returned for my wife's birthday, for a 5 night stay. The service as always was fantastic.
The food in each Restarant, superb. Especially "SalaThai". We ate here on my wife's birthday.
The accommidation is 2nd to none. So comfortable. We were upgraded to a suit in the regency club. 1 word, "huge".
The only negative we found was. The snorkelling. It was still good. But it used to be amazing!!!
I can only think, the presents of many snorkelling charters, has cleared the area of a lot of its sea life!!!
In summary. An absolutely fantastic stay. Thank you so much, to everyone at the Hyatt. You are truly a 5 star hotel. Well done..
Mr and Mrs. Barlow.
See you very soon...

Dear Mr & Mrs Barlow

Thank you very much for your visit and continuous support to our hotel. I am very pleased to read that again you had an enjoyable stay all over.

indeed the number of dive boats has increased which is something we have raised already on various occasions to the authorities and be assured we will continue to do so, in order to protect the reef from pollution and destruction.

We would hope to welcome you back ' home' again for the 5th time in the near future, please do let us know once you have made your arrangements of if we can be of any assistance.

Do not hesitate to visit this beautiful hotel. The grounds are stunning and beautifully kept. It is definitely a good choice to upgrade to Regency Club. I would suggest contact the hotel directly or negotiate on arrival rather than deal with a travel agent. What makes this hotel stand out from the crowd is the staff ,from management Mr Gessler , to domestic services. All are polite and attentive and genuinely strive to create a friendly relaxing but quality experience. This is apparently not common in the majority of Sharm hotels as we waited in the gate at the airport and listened to the woes of other travelers on their return home.Two members of staff stood out for us , Tarfik and Muhammad the pool butlers at the Regency Club pools. Nothing was a trouble to them and we felt so sad saying goodbye to them. We shall be returning soon.

We were cocooned from all the troubles as there was a curfew and Nama Bay was closed. We truly hope that the political situation resolves soon for the Egyptian people.

Dear Cathy

Thank you very much for your visit and great to read you enjoyed your stay despite the troubling times we are going through at the moment.
As I have written in another reply, we are fortunate that Sharm El Sheikh is as peaceful as ever, and we hope it will stay that way over the next weeks and months. At the same time we hope for the best in the cities of Cairo and around, that the situation will stabilize and gradually recover.

Luckily the curfew only lasted one night and had been lifted the very next day.

Agreeably the Regency Club is almost a hotel within the hotel, giving access to a variety of additional services and privileges and worth the additional money spend.

We would hope to welcome you back soon again, please do let us know once you have booked , to make sure all the arrangements are in place again.

Sincerely and with kind regards

Returned with my daughter for another visit to this lovely hotel. There were far fewer European guests than usual due to the problems in Cairo and Alexandria but we never felt unsafe and were frequently reassured by staff. We stayed in the Regency Club and were upgraded to a suite which was an unexpected treat and much appreciated. It is well worth upgrading for the additional amenities - beach, clubhouse and pool + the early drinks and canapes. As always the staff everywhere are charming, helpful and friendly. Not all the restaurants were open in the evening but there was plenty of choice at the Souk, Sala Thai (superb) and good light snack menu in the Star Bar ... in case you've overdone the canapes. Entertainment at The Souk had definitely gone up several notches since our last visit.
Breakfast in the main hotel and the club is an excellent start to the day with lots of choices. There's no doubt that the daily influx of snorkelling boats very close to the shore is irritating but it's a short period in the afternoon (usually 3.00 to 4.30 ish) when a visit to the pool might be opportune. There was usually a well-behaved dive boat in situ during the morning but they were intent on serious diving.
All in all we think this is the most beautiful and welcoming hotel in Sharm and long may it remain so. Our sincere thanks to all the staff for ensuring we had another memorable stay. We look forward to our next.
