We have been to a couple of hotels in Sharm and this was our first time going to Island View and will not be our last. All of the staff were friendly, welcoming and catered to our needs. The room was clean and well maintained.
I will be recommending this hotel to my friends at home and will hopefully return again soon!

our third visit to the hotel and will be the last . under new management and it shows, cant seem to sort anything . if you want cuttlery for breakfast ,better take your own as hardly ever any cups spoons or knifes and forks... then the loo flooded with sewerage we were told to wait 10 mins ,half hour later told dont wait in, poor room cleaner was left to clean it up, he was a diamond and only person who deserved a tip.

This was our first visit to Sharm and will definitely not be our last. Island View Hotel has got to be ranked as the best hotel ever for their first class customer service in all areas. The management have got to be commended on the friendliness of every single member of staff. Special mentions have to go to Adie and Achmed in the main restaurant who looked after us like royalty, Salah who looked after us at breakfast time and Omar the waiter at Pool 4 who brought us endless supplies of drinks throughout the day without even being asked.....now that's service. Coralie also deserves a mention for her Guest Relation Service, always having time for a friendly chat. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for its cleanliness and value for money......will certainly be going back.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have better views.

Have just returned from a very relaxing and enjoyable week at the island view hotel. We have spent most of the week on the beach, snorkelling and swimming with the fish. Had a lovely room but a small quibble with it was quickly sorted with the help of the guest relation advisor, Coralie. She was absolutely lovely and even popped down and had a drink with us one evening in Fatimas enquiring as to how we had found our stay and interested in our views - a really nice approach.
We ate most evenings in Fatimas restaurant which Hamed runs very well and oversees a smooth transition through the meal/drinks flow and customer satisfaction. However our appreciation must also go to khalid who never seemed to let us get to the bottom of our glass !! Cheers and always smiling and chirpy too.
For breakfast we ate in the main hotel restaurant and were superbly catered for by Salah, always coffee and orange juice flowing.
The weather was fab, rooms currently being updated and the new bar for the evenings is fantastic, very chilled out - I look forward to our next trip
Many thanks to you all for looking after us so well - we had a fab time and look forward to seeing you all again

This was our third visit to the hotel,first under the new management.Although renovation work was on going it did not spoil our holiday.
We normally sit around the adult pool but this was closed for renovation, so we went to pool 4. This had been renovated and was smashing. The barmen Ami and omar were exellent brought us drinks through out the day always a pleasent smile and a kind word. Ahmed the pool man also was pleasent worked hard to keep the pool and area around the pool clean and tidy.
Ibriham in the main restraunt and Mohammad in Fatamas was there when we first visited the hotel, it was like coming home ,they remembered us and we caught up on their families.
We were very impressed with Corrie customer service ,she was their to help and we only had a couple of minor worries which were fixed in a matter of minutes.It was our wedding anniversary whilst we were there and a cake was made making the event speacial.Thank you Corrie for being so lovely.
All the staff from gardeners to managers were very pleaseant and helpful.
Thank you all again everyone for making our holiday special.Hope to see you again in September.2013
