“So cool week !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

I had a very good week in Viva Sharm. Food was good, room was nice. Staff was great and friendly. Animation team was just so so cool. Morning stretching, aqua aerobics, dancing - everything they did was so cool. I enjoyed this week so much, so thank you guys.

me and my husband just spent 1 week at viva sharm again and was like going home i love it there and all staff are amazing. especially ahmed lobby bar, mohamed reception night shift, walid main restaurant , sherif house keeping, hatim on reception and our friend the FOM abd el wahab. plus mohamed on bar at quiet pool. i cant wait to go back in jan 07th 14. the food also was good in aug , but even better in nov, good F&B manager. i can understand F&B as i am in same trade , i manage bar / restaurants, and he is doing well. i want to say a special thankyou to the reception staff as me and my husband needed a lot of papers coping and they were all great and it was so appreciated. And i rate all these people as friends, we fee we are l not guests here now but more than that as think of viva as family. i promise you anyone who reads this review i tell truth from my heart, ignore any bad reviews on here as i can promise once you visit viva sharm you want to go back. again and again. I lived in sharm for 3 years been and worked in hotels there and this is best place to make lots of new friends and feel at home. so give it a try you will have the best holiday.
to all at viva sharm thanks for a gret holiday again and see you in 2 months.
ps
sorry hatim bringing mohamed back again with me hahahaa

Had a great stay in Viva Sharm, be under no illusions this is a budget hotel but as previous comments the excellent staff go out of their way to make your holiday. We requested a room by the quiet pool as told these were better than the other rooms, the rooms are basic and have seen better times but were cleaned daily with fresh bed linen and towels. Some people complained about the food but for us we found it fine, omelettes and pancakes cooked to order for breakfast with large selection of rolls and pastries, chips, pizza, pasta etc for lunch and casseroles, fish, chicken for evening meal, when you have paid £13 per night all inclusive you definitely get value for money also it's the first time I've been to Egypt and not had an upset tummy.
A few things to be aware of - outside of the hotel camel rides are offered initially free of charge but then you get hounded to pay, we had two teenage boys with us who felt very threatened after being duped to taking a ride and then being made to pay £20. This has nothing to do with the hotel but just something to be mindful of, another thing is that there is no all inclusive between 1700 and 1800 hours.

Room Tip: Email the hotel prior to your visit for a room near the quiet pool

The Hotel is in the middle of refurbishing its rooms, the rooms by the ‘quiet pool’ (numbers 300+) are already refurbished and are far better that the others, I would really recommended requesting 1 of these. We were not happy with our room when we got there but were moved after one night.
All the Staff are tireless and extremely pleasant and helpful. The food is good not excellent but good and enjoyable. There is a shop and a chemist built into the hotel which is handy and small spa just over the road. The pools (3 of them, quiet pool, kids pool and a pool with a volleyball net and small island that has music) are great and clean there was always plenty of sun loungers and the hotel provides towels which they will let you take to the beach or on excursions.
The hotel really goes the extra mile to please its clients, examples are the manager came round every day and asked if anyone needed anything, someone requested more white wine and some rose wine and it was there that night, another example is some nights the dining tables are moved outside so you can enjoy your meals in the warm night air which we did not expect but it was a nice touch.
All in all I would give the hotel 8 out of 10 and once all the refurbishing is completed I would not be surprised is it moved up to a 4*.

Came to this hotel not expecting anything and felt like it was going to be boring and not very good but when I entered I had one of the best weeks in my life, would like to say a big thanks to Mauro and memo for making the week so entertaining! They seemed to be working 24/7 and even got us going on some amazing night outs. Food was allways nice, nice restaurant, and such amazing staff they made the week so good! Would definitely come back

We stayed for 10 nights and found the animation team of Mauro And Nemo excellent. All the staff were brilliant too and Hatan on reception has outstanding customer services skills. All the staff could not do enough to help you in any way they could and have made some great new friends too with the staff. Food was good and plentiful. Some rooms are being refurbished and these are to a very good standard. Cant wait to return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 130 by the main pool.

Have just spent 10nights at Viva Sharm and its Fab!!! When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed with cocktails! The Boy who takes your bags to the room mohammed (sammy) haha is sooo sweet and very helpful!! Ramadan who makes the omlettes in the morning is so funny and friendly!! Breakfast is nice although the toaster takes a while. food its self is nice BUT it is extremley repetative and there is a bit to many carbohydrates! Well worth doing the bbq as the food is nice and there is more to choose from. the entertainment at the bbq couldnt of been better!! Memo and Marrow the entertainment staff are 5* and do there best to make sure every one is happy!! also can i just say you need to try the yoga its amazing!!
