Just returned from delta sharm after a 2 week holiday with my dad and my sister, and I must say, it is an astonishing resort! The swimming pools are jaw-dropping and there are so many to choose from, the staff are generally very friendly and helpful, the cleanliness is second to none, and the beds are so comfortable! Iv rated this as 4 stars however, and there are a few reasons for this: while the food at the friends buffet resteraunt is very good (anyone who says otherwise is probably a chicken-nugget scoffing waster) there tends to be a distinct lack of choice, especially for younger children, as my sister struggled to find anything she liked, but if you are hungry you eat what is available or go without, if you cannot accept that then stay at home and eat crisps infront of the Tv. The dilemma here is, that going self-catering is risky, as outside the resort, the surrounding area appears to be a war-torn desolate dumping ground, it is very unpleasant to look at and to visit, i would reccomend you stay within the resort unless you have a pre-determined destination, do not go for a stroll, its not kind on the eyes. therefore I suggest all-inclusive just to be on the safe side, and if you don't like what is on offer, buy microwave meals from the 24/7 market and be done with you, quite frankly.
I did also see a woman struggling to push her disabled friend up a kerb, it is quite wheelchair-unfriendly, but this is co pletley overshadowed by the fact that all the residents in the resort drive around at at least 50mph, making it unsafe at times, and the 'security guards' who are meant to enforce safe driving, just stand and smoke against their pick-up. The only other problem is -and I will try and avoid being offensive here, but it is important to note- that there is a very large Russian contingency in delta sharm, as Egypt is a popular holiday destination for Russians. I have traveled all over the world, seen many different cultures and ment many different people, and I have NEVER met a race who are so ignorant. They are incredibly rude, arrogant, ignorant and self-obsessed, they destroy the buffet system by taking so much food there is none left for anyone else and dont even eat half of it, they demand drinks from the bar without even as much as an acknowledgment for the barman, they would trample a child to death just to get to the last piece of kebab meat, and generally have no manners whatsoever, and it really did put a downer on the atmosphere.
These small things aside, I recommend delta sharm for a holiday resort as it is a lovely, friendly, relaxed community with entertainment for kids, a gift shop owned by a very friendly woman, excursions at good prices, fabulous apartments, beautiful pools, helpful staff and a generally well-balanced sense of fun, relaxation and luxury
