Just arrived back from a week here – wend 6th Dec to 13th Dec 2012.
OK, the good bits. Food is OK and there was something I could eat every day. Salads were nice. They have an egg/omelette station every morning and something going on a lunch and dinner, whether it be fresh pasta or fresh pancakes.
The pool staff are lovely – Radi was star. The room staff are also lovely. As were the restaurant staff, they couldn’t do enough to help you out.
It is nice and close to Naama bay but just far enough way too.
OK, that’s where the good bits end.
We had a problem as they were working on the large pool so this wasn’t open and neither was the games room. So we only had 1 pool.
The reception staff were not very friendly although they did move us when we requested it.
The staff at the pool bar were really miserable, so thank goodness George came on duty half way through our holiday, he was lovely.
They have older rooms that are not very good. Really old dark furniture and the paintwork etc.. on the patio was just terrible. Air conditioning unit was noisy as was the fridge, both had to go off overnight or no way could we have slept.
We did get moved to a much better room by the pool the next day.
It’s local booze and it’s just awful. We learnt from a previous visit to Sharm and bought 2 litres of Smirnoff on the way out but you still have times where you drink their stuff! Yeuk!!
The beer seemed watered down and the mixers are horrible and flat and overly sweet. There is also no wine included in the AI package which was a nightmare for us as we love our wine no matter how naff it might be. The hotel should look at including this, even if only in the restaurant at meal times!
Entertainment!???? Oh deary deary me!!!! That’s all I have to say!
And usually an absolute must for me, iron and ironing board!!?? Nope!!! Can’t get them here! Make sure you take already ironed clothes with you and pack them well.
It was very quiet while we were there due to the ongoing renovations and it did ruin it for us.
Having stayed in other 4 star places in Sharm, this one just didn’t cut the mustard. Made the previous hotels look like complete luxury.
I wouldn’t recommend it until the works have been completed and when we spoke to someone about it they said Christmas time for finishing but I doubt that very much.
The sun shone and the company was great so it was still a good holiday.
