Me and my partner have just returned from our stay in the Radisson Blu hotel. I would like to give my review a 3.5 rather than a 4 - however as this option is not available, I do not feel that it deserves a 3 - hence selecting 4.
First impressions are very nice - we were greeted with a lovely cold drink and an ice cold flannel - lovely when its 40degrees outside. We were shown to our room very quickly and were given an excellent service straight away.
The upkeep of the garden and communal areas is lovely - very well kept and tidy.
I do feel that the staff were very helpful at all times - always keen to please you and wanted to do everything they could to help you enjoy your stay.
We stayed room 7165 - apparently a free upgrade which we could not complain about at all. I do feel that the room itself was a bit on the shabby side. For example the toilet moved away from the wall when you sat on it and the shower door did not shut properly, which caused water to go all over the floor. In addition the curtains were a little stained and the patio door had seen better days. However we were comfortable in this room and it was cleaned on a daily basis by a very helpful and friendly gentleman.
I am a very fussy eater so maybe I am not the best person to comment on the food - however I have stayed in many Sharm el Sheikh hotels in the past and the food is not terrible at all in comparison - more of a selection would have been welcomed though as me and my partner did get a bit bored of the same type of meals each night.
I was impressed with the fresh pasta at dinner times - it was prepared in front of you and you could choose your ingredients. The same at breakfast with the eggs and omelets.
We did eat in the Italian restaurant on two occasions, we had a four course set menu which was very nice and tasty. One of the waiters at this restaurant worked so hard and was so helpful - always running up and down to assist each table of guests.
One of the girls who was part of the entertainment team, Cheryl, was lovely and very friendly. She made the effort to stop and chat to you each day, and was always very helpful if you needed to ask anything. We took part in some of the events including a Bingo event one night - which I did feel was a little on the cheesy side.
Overall I do not agree that the Radisson Blu is 5* - I would say that if further attention was given to the rooms and the selection of food - I would change my opinion, however at the moment I would say a 4* at most. However, please do not let this put you off as we had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
