Truely honest review....
I travelled with an older friend but we have been to egypt over 5 times, always trying different hotels and areas.
Booked this holiday late, so we didnt have a lot to choose from, but with so many reviews taking this hotel to more a good 5 star I thought we couldnt go wrong..
But, first we had to change rooms as , though rooms are large , they gave us one with double bed and two childrens singles which when you walk into the room are in by the wardrobe, no natural light, bit ugly area to be honest, they quickly changed rooms to two single beds in the main room, these rooms in sea gardens are the largest out of the hotel group ,(we asked to see the 5star rooms) and they are very clean, beds very hard and pillows very uncomfortable , both had bad necks and backs all week and still now, and no im not old.
The food in this restuarant is limited and geared at the russions now, the problem is that they have the right theme nights and the right ingredients but the chefs need to be trained again to put it together, I wouldnt even say the food was even up to 4 star sometimes , we eat a lot of evenings at the middle hotel sea life, which was a bit better as had more variety, but 5star sea club , not 5star at all !!
we meet a girl who become seriously ill on the fish on first day!! I had bad belly from salad, which I only eat once! we both had gripping pains which if you go to chemist they dish tablets out like sweets.!
My companion is a vegy, and she really struggled to find good food (no fish here unless you paid for a fish restaurant , wouldnt recommend.) and so pretty much eat the spagetti in sea life which was very good.
But thank you to the sea garden manager in the restaurant made sure we had a bowl of chips, Just because at lunch you couldnt always find them or anything to eat if you had a pallet!, This does look like we are typical english abroad, nothing could be further from the truth, we love good food in any country, just couldnt get it here.
Went to Soho square and had a lovely indian there ,would reccommend these restaurants as part of savoy hotel. cost 50EP.in taxi and you cannot barter them down.
The thing with this group hotel is apart from food and beds, it realy is a nice place , friendly nice atmosphere all round , wonderfull beach and they let you snorkel on low tide reefs which are directly infront on beach , sunbeds all too close to one another on beach and by pools, go to middle of beach to get away from dj noise which they will play from sea club and sea gardens.Why do they do this when the average age here is 40!!!!. though at night sea gardens is soo quiet.
So if you know the food isnt up to scratch and take a pillow with you and you're on a budget , then yes you will enjoy this hotel.
