We booked our stay as last minute holiday not knowing a lot about Sharm el sheikh or the Sharm Reef hotel. After a quick check on Trip Advisor we booked the Sharm Reef. I can honestly say the pictures on the site don't do it justice. We stayed in October and the facilities were picture perfect. The pool was always clean and fresh and the gardens well maintained. We arrived very late and at check in we were advised that there would be some food in our room. They had made sure that there was plenty of fresh fruit and bottled water and as an extra surprise they also upgraded our room to a suite free of charge. Wi-FI options are limited to pay as you go cards and you can only get coverage in reception (worth noting if you need access to the internet) . The all inclusive package included the local beer and spirits - (wine is only available at meal times on the plan). The beer is bottled as were the soft drinks which were all premium brands (Coke, Sprite, etc). The air conditioning could have been a bit cooler but was adequate. All the public areas were very clean and the on site shops and treatments were persistent but not bothersome (make sure you haggle though). The hotel is located opposite the Il Mercato shopping district which has plenty of fast food options (McDonalds, Costa, KFC) and restaurants though we mostly made use of the all inclusive meal options which included a fresh omelette station at breakfast and a fresh pasta station at lunch and dinner. The staff were all friendly and fluent in English and very attentive. When one of my children had some difficulty in the pool they were quick to come to her aid and the manager sought us out later to make sue that everything was OK. If you do visit Il Mercato shopping opposite the hotel be mindful of the Camel rides on offer - it was the only time we felt ripped off as we didn't ask for the ride and ended up paying over the odds for a short ride.
