I have just come back from 2 weeks at the Sol Cyrene, Sharm el sheikh and had a great holiday. The rooms were big and clean, the pool was huge and very refreshing, and the beach was just a short shuttle ride 100m from the hotel (you can walk it but its so hot and its slightly up hill on the way back!) We were the only english couple there for the first 10 days which was great, we had totally got away from it all, it was mainly occupied with Italians and russians who were all very friendly. But the staff is what makes this hotel so lovely, they are all so friendly and will go out of there way to help you. We joined in on Aqua aerobics in the mornings or afternoons and everyday at 5 we played water polo, this is what made it so friendly as you would then speak to everyone you played with that day that night in the restaurant. As there was so many Italians, the evening entertainment was all in Italian, they tried to translate for us, but it was no good. The food was lovely but did get a bit samey after about day 8-10 and the drinks were always warm, apart from draught beer which we didn't mind! I can definatly recommend this hotel if you want a break from everything back at home and meet some new friends along the way.
