“Honest Review From A Travel Agent...”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Myself and my partner have just returned from 14 AMAZING days at the Sharm Grand Plaza. We had a fabulous time. On arrival, we were checked in quickly and shown to our room in the Tiran Block. Not the best view from the balcony but the room itself was clean, spacious and modern. Besides, how much time would you really spend sitting on a balcony?? Two huge double beds, bathroom was lovely, no complaints,

The hotel itself is huge, and it took us a couple of days to get our bearings. The pool areas were big, there were lots of sunbeds available. There is the main pool, which is right on the beach, there is the olypmic pool a minutes stroll from that and then the Nino pool near reception. All three were amazing, pools were kept clean and all had bars next to them.

The staff at this hotel are absolutely fantastic, getting you involved in all the daytime and evening activities, although if you just want to chill they will leave you to it. All the entertainment guys are FANTASTIC...especially Matty, Sam, Bianca, Alex...you guys ROCK!! We did a couple of nights out with them. One to Space and the other to the beach party and they made sure we had a brilliant time ( shame my other half only managed an hour there hahaha i am sure you will all remember that!!!) The beach party at Pataya was immense, my legs are still aching!!! Both were an all inclusive deal, drinks til 2am on both nights, and all for £20!!!

Have to mention my friend Salah in the nuts bar, my favourite out of all the staff there, makes the best cocktails in all of Egypt! Also Sam, Mustafa and all the others, too many to mention but just the nicest guys, and you all made our holiday even better! It is open to only English up until 11pm when the all inclusive finishes.

I have seen alot of reviews on here complaining about 'all the russians' at the hotel. My opinion is, everyone, no matter what country you are from, needs their holidays. Yes, sometimes they can seem abrupt and a little rude, but so can alot of English people. Some of the Russian people we spoke to were lovely, so please dont let that put you off. You will be missing out!

Food wise, i'll be honest, it isn't the greatest but you will always find something you will like. There was the main restaurant and Palmyra, which are both buffet. We never went hungry but, as you generally find with all inclusive, it can get a bit 'samey' . The grill restaurant on the beach was lovely, freshly cooked meats, a bit BBQ style, which we really enjoyed. Snacks during the day consisted of chicken wings, salads, chips and burgers, which you can get at the pool bars. The Palmyra restaurant opens at 1130pm for late night snacks, which was fab. We ate out quite a few times, the Union Jack over the road was amazing, you can get everything from a full english to a roast dinner.

Definitly try Naama Bay and the Old Market. A taxi down there shouldn't cost more than 50 Egyptian Pounds. Old Market is great for shopping and bartering. Naama Bay is a bit more commercialised, but still fab. We had a steak dinner, starters, drinks and sheesha for under £20 for both of us!

I would also recommend doing Quad Biking and Tiran Island. We also did the Cairo trip. Obviously, check the situation over there as it is kicking off a bit at the moment. We went to Sharm Club, which was directly opposite the hotel, and got a fantastic deal on all three so definitly go there!

All in all, i would one hunder recommend this hotel to friends, as well as customers, we couldn't have wished for a better holiday. Thanks Guys

Sam and Mike xxxxx

Just returned after a weeks holiday at the Grand Plaza, like everyone else I am sure reading some review makes you wonder what your going too. Well let me put you at ease, on arrival we were met by the bell boy who took our luggage check in was quick and efficient, within 10 minutes we were in our room (Aoca block) a nice spacious room two large double beds clean and charming, on opening our curtains we have the most amazing view which over looked the large pool and the sea.

The big plus of the Grand Plaza is the staff, I have travelled all over the world and have never come across such hospitality, a huge thank you to Mr Adam Abd Allh the assistant F & B Manager who could not do enough for us, even inviting us into the a carte restaurant which was a 5 course meal of good quality, with a belly dancer entertainment which was held in the grill bar, we also visited the Italain restaurant which we found an excellent meal was serviced.

Gardens are kept in a immaculate condition, pool areas are clean with plenty of beds which we found very comfortable, several pools so you can choose the smaller pool or the larger pool which attracts all the action going on.

Big thank you to all the staff, but I must mention Italian Chef Phillipo who made me garlic pizzas every day, waiters Mohamad Ali, Mohamad Farouk and Mustafa.

Just got back from 2 weeks 10th /25th november. Had a great time. All the staff are great, and make your stay a pleasure.Nothing is to much trouble. Any special request or problems which were few. Where dealt with quickly and efficiently. We found the food to be very good and varied. There was always something to tempt us . If not a word with the Executive Chef Yassin Mohamed .Who has great pride in his work .and his fellow chefs will get results. Our room was cleaned every day fresh towels etc. It would be unfair to mention anyone by name, as all the staff worked very hard .to make our stay a memorable one. Many thanks. ( p.s.Mona your letter was delivered )

Room Tip: We mentioned when booking it was our anniversary and where upgraded to a suite

We stayed here in August 2012 and were very happy with the hotel. We've been to Sharm once before and payed a lot more for a very similar hotel. This wasn't quite as nice but the difference in cost made it worthwhile. The room was adequate, clean and quite large. The food was okay and there were different themed nights, but to be quite honest the food didn't really seem very different and there could be a bit more variety. The service wasn't quite as good as the previous hotel we stayed in but the grounds were nice and clean, as was the beach and jetty. The pool areas were very nice.
The entertainment was the worst part of the holiday. it was pretty much non-existent and what we did see was very poor indeed. Also, we went out one night to Soho Square and when we returned we fancied a drink but as it was after 10 o;clock the all-inclusive bars were all shut!
All in all, good value for money but the entertainment needs to be very much improved and also the all-inclusive part of the holiday needs to be looked at closely, you should be able to get a drink as part of your all-inclusive entitlement after 10pm.

Just returned from a 4 night trip to the grand plaza and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is immaculate especially the lovely gardens. The food was good and didn't suffer any tummy problems. The staff couldn't do enough for you especially after a little tip! My only gripe was that being a lover of wine I was disappointed that it was only served at evening meal and then in very small measures which meant you kept having to get up for more. I am not a lover of spirits so in the evening i was a bit stuck as to what to drink. Overall a lovely hotel I would return.

Stayed here with my friend for 9 nights arrived November 16th. I've never stayed in a hotel that has been so welcoming and wanted to go out of their way so much. I celebrated my 27th birthday whilst away, never mentioned anything to the hotel about it being my birthday yet they posted a letter through the door inviting us to a complimentary meal at the grill house restaurant in the evening (this restaurant is only open at lunch times) the restaurant only had another 10 people in it who were also celebrating special occasions. They had a belly dancer for the occasion and served up a 5 course meal which was lovely! To top it off they delivered a birthday cake to our room. Staff were so friendly in this hotel, the animation team were brilliant. This was my 5th stay in Egypt and its the first time I have not been ill, although I did take pro biotic tablets before coming. The A La Carte Italian restaurant was really nice, however the service wasn't as great in this restaurant, but food was amazing and reasonable pricing! Plenty of variety food wise, close by to shops. There's also bars near by along with soho square although drink prices are quite pricey. This hotel really is lovely. Best one in Egypt that I've stayed in so far.
