My wife and stayed here the 20th - 30th March. We have stayed in many hotels in Sharm over the years and all my comparisons relate to similar hotels, as we have found that you generally get what you pay for in Sharm.
Check In was quick, but the whole reception area is very old, with lots of dark wood furniture and old soft furnishings, although it was all very clean, except for the sofa and 2 chairs next to the cash machine, which should be put into a skip.
We had asked for a room in block 3 ( as advised on trip advisor) and we were very happy with our room ( 3401). Very large comfortable bed and large walk in shower and a lovely pool view.
Lots of English guests and we spent our days at the Adult only pool ( could have raised a Union Jack ).
All the staff were really great, with pool guy (Raphael) putting out our towels each morning. The pool barman was brilliant, remembering our drinks and bringing them round to us without being asked, so well done everybody.
Only gripe was despite having new metal sunbeds they didn't have mattresses and got very uncomfortable and you couldn't adjust the backs to suit. I noticed that they had the same beds at The Savoy Hotel, which I would have been very upset with had I had to pay their prices.
Not for us I'm afraid.
Lunch was nice at the snack bar next to the children's club, but service was erratic, although, we had a good laugh about it with other regulars.
As previously mentioned by others on trip advisor, the main restaurant and food is the biggest disappointment. The dining room reminds me of a 1980's Spanish 3*** hotel. Again dark wood everywhere and service areas unappealing. Egg station at breakfast had 2 single hotplates and chef could only use 2 small frying pans and at peak times queues quickly formed.
Evening meals were very hit and miss and we were generally disappointed, although if you like chicken and chips every night, then you'll be fine.
We did make use of the food hall in Soho Square which was part of the all inclusive package and were quite pleased with the variety and taste of the food served there. We also visited the Queen Vic on various occasions and one night had their fish and chips, which was very tasty.
For those with mobility problems this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in, with few steps and plenty of ramps in place.
Overall we had an enjoyable stay, mainly due to the lovely company and excellent staff, but wouldn't return until a refurbishment of the restaurant, reception areas have been made, as we know we can go to 3 or 4 hotels at a similar price that offer better food and facilities.
