I have just returned from two weeks at the Sea Gardens (25th Aug - 8th Sept). I stayed with my husband and 2 children aged 13 & 10. It was our first trip to Sharm. I have to say it is the best All Inclusive I have stayed in. The Sea Gardens is the smaller of the three hotels on site, but a little gem. You can use all the facilities and restaurants in the other hotels which is a nice change.
Our room was very spacious, main bedroom with Flat Screen TV and kids bedroom with TV. The bathroom is a little tired, but the cleaners do a fab job with the whole room, fresh bedding everyday and towel art.. if there was ever a problem you only had to mention and it was sorted. Aircon worked very well.
The Sea Gardens Restaurant is a very chilled affair, the Manager Hossam was fantastic as my daughter has allergies to nuts and stone fruits , he would take her around the food every day and made sure she was eating, he knew us all by name. He is credit to the hotel. Also our waiters Said and Mohamad were brilliant, always on hand to get you a drink, ask how our day was and great with the kids, they were very popular with my son Brogan.
The range of food was very good, always something being cooked on the grill, pasta station, salads, puds, fruit, bread, soups.. I always found something to eat.. but it is not all burgers and chips, you can have this at the pool bar at lunch time.
We stayed at the Sea Garden Pool which is great Mahmoud was on hand to bring us drinks, Julia from animation always came around and had a chat, I joined in the Aqua Gym and my husband played water Volley ball, but no pressure. Kids Loved it. If you want slides you have to get the free shuttle bus two mins up road to the Aqua Park, but you do have to pay, think £15 each adult and kids Free. We didn't go as thought a bit of a cheek to have to pay as same group of hotels and the guest from Aqua Park come and use the beach at Sea life for free. Eslam (Adam) the life guard/towel guy was great very funny and always helpful. You get fresh beach towels every day.
You do get people trying to sell you trips etc.. but just a no thank you and they will leave you alone. We actually got to know some of them very well, they are always happy to have a chat. Kareem the beauty guy is great, my daughter and I had our nails done they were fab. He will do you a good deal.
The beach is a short walk through Sea Life snorkeling is amazing. You don't have to go off the jetty, we stood in water just above our ankles and saw the most beautiful fish. beach shoes are advised but you can walk on the coral without them and you can snorkel shallow tow. If you are brave enough you have to go off the Jetty I can't even beginning to describe the fish you see, it blew my mind every time i got in the water. The beach is not the prettiest I have been on but the sunbeds are comfortable the view out onto the ocean is amazing, there is a beach bar for drinks and can use the beach restaurant for buffet lunch if you don't want to walk to seaclub or sealife restaurants.

Beach Restaurant was nice for a change but not great, very dark could not see what eating, I would suggest having chicken and not fish.
Japanese was great to watch the chef cooking our food very skilled but put too much soya sauce on the food which was a shame.
Lebanese this was our favourite very traditional food, BBQ meats, Houmous, Breads. Very nice.
They are all worth a go as get one free visit to each.
Drinks are wonderful, cocktails are good , they are not watered down, got quiet merry!!. You can get bottles of water all day from the bars which is fab. Kids cocktails went down very well with our kids, Cinderella and Cleopatra were their faves.
We did tip a few staff here and their in the beginning and also tipped the staff that gave us exceptional service. They take every currency, It may be worth taking some USD. They don't mind GBP but cant change up coins, only notes. The exchange rate at hotel bank was better that UK for Egyptian Pounds
My daughter and Husband came down for one day with the bug, don't know what caused it as ate exactly the same food. Just think a combination of heat, drink, food and air con. If you go to reception they will get you some Antinal from local Pharmacy which is about £3.00 for two bottles. The hotel Pharmacy want to charge about £30 for one bottle.
The restaurant staff again were brilliant giving us special teas to help them and could take out food back to room.
We went to Namma Bay, Never again, it was not pleasant, get really hassled, they try and rip you off have to be very strong when haggling. We were told Soho Square if the place to go they don't hassle you at all and I am sure still room for some bargaining.
We went on a boat trip, we use Jasmine Tours. Cost us £15 per person. He picked us up from hotel, we went on boast three different snorkeling spots and had lunch and dropped us back. He is much cheaper than the hotel guys, he also does quad biking tours. We had a great day onboard . You can book online before you go at www.Jasminetourssharm.com or call him when there on +201225974123.
I have to say that when we stayed there were no flights from Russia or Germany so it was quiet, but I spoke to several people who holiday a lot at Sea Gardens and they say that the service is even better when busier.
The staff and this hotel are special they really make the holiday they work so hard always with a smile on their faces. We hope to return next year.
Thank you Sea Gardens.
