“Common Sense Must Prevail”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

You've read all the reviews, looked at other hotels, come back to this one and your going to book it..... Now at this point you would expect someone to say no don't however to be honest, you want to go so it's upto you! On one hand there are some positives, the location, the staff, the facilities etc or theres the negatives, the food, quality and choice, room standard etc. Its not the hotels fault that its full of Russians or that there's flies. What they did do in our experience was take every complaint or comment seriously and try to rectify it swiftly. Room wise we had already booked the biggest and best suite however when the patio door didnt lock they fixed it within 20 minutes. We complained about the food and were offered the option to dine in any of the premium restaurants every night instead of the main restaurants. We actually did 50 / 50 between them and the buffet. When we were woken by rowdy Russians at 3am I complained and it stopped the noise. They could not do more to help!

I am not saying the other reviews aren't valid, far from it, because I was not there when they were and I experienced similar issues. There is a small minority of the russians that behave in a dispicable & disgusting manor however coming from the English, that is a bit like people in glass houses!!

Overall if you put the Russians, time of year i.e. Flies and the food aside its actually a nice basic 3 star hotel with lots of nice touches like the candy floss and popcorn machines. Would I go back, then no, but mainly because there are better in the same price region.

If you do book and go then just keep in mind what the reviews said and make a stand from day 1 if your not happy, they will try there hardest to sort it. Hope you enjoy it.

We visited Rehana Sharm Resort during the last week of December. The rooms & complex were generally very nice but the food was a huge disappointment. It is definitely not a 5* resort, too many flies and extremely drunk rude Russian guests outnumbering any other nationality. Good week escape for winter sun but expect to eat out, Union Jack bar walkable distance, good food, good prices.

OK there were flies, there were many rude and/or drunk Russians. However the hotel is large with beautiful grounds, the rooms are big with comfy beds, meticulous cleaners everyday, english TV and gorgeous views. We stayed in block 5 - it is very near to the mosque so you may be woken by the call to prayer and it is a long (lovely) walk to the main restaurants and ampitheatre but it is next to the food court, near reception and next to the fun tunnel to the beach.

All inclusive really is all inclusive here - 24 hours you can find food (especially pastries and cakes - they like those!) and alcohol. I could not stomach the white wine (my usual tipple) but the red was like a dry merlot - only served in restaurants though! Breakfast was cereal, bread, jam, cheese, yoghurts, eggs, pancakes or omelettes. Lunch was lovely fish and chips, shawrma or oriental food or just burgers, hot dogs etc. Lovely kulfi ice cream served all day - my son's fave flavour was mango.

the pools were beautiful - they weren't strict about who could go on slides much to my 4 year old's delight. The beach was also great - good spot with clean toilets, food at 12 and a bar for anything but beer (however you can just pop into other hotel and get beer there)

What blew us away was the effort they made at new year - xmas too just for the Brits - but NYE was out of this world - like a very extravagant wedding in a pretty marquee.

We'd love to go back

Room Tip: ask for a suite with a bath but then there is a window into your room or just have a shower for more...

We stayed at this hotel over the Christmas period and it was a lovely stay. Its not beach front, however the beach is only a short stroll under a tunnel, so easy for families as you dont need to cross any busy roads. On arrival it took 2 hrs from the airport, even though its only 10 mins down the road. At this time of year the weather is stunning during the day with the sun beating down from 8 am until 4 pm on the bottom pool and 3 pm on the centre pool. It does go chilly in the evening so take cardigans with you. The food in the food court is the same every day but there are a few choices and its labelled, the main restaurant is not brilliant, nothing labelled so you dont know what your eating, The Mexican was very slow service and not the best food, the Lebanese restaurant was lovely, food lovely, service great, definitely the best on the resort. The entertainment during the day is varied and lots to do, the animation team are friendly and warm people, especially, Medo, Miga and Omar(i think that's how you spell it) The food court waiters are excellent, Ahmed was a complete star, very friendly and always smiling, There isn't a large drinks section, mainly vodka, rum and beer, but the rum is very good. The rooms are very clean a little delapitated but the housekeeping are brilliant, you do need to ask for a kettle as there isn't one in the room, We had lots of towel sculptures made and plenty of water provided. Popcorn and candy floss provided from 12 til 11 pm so snacking always there there is also ice cream, waffles and pancakes available from the food court. I would definitely go back to this hotel and would recommend to friends and families. All in all an amazing holiday.

Arrived back from here Xmas eve after a 2 week stay , this is a honest review from an English family of two adult and 5 and 3 year old ,,
I arrived here hoping for a beach front view what I paid for but they didn't know kids was with me so got a different room which was huge very nice only let down was a massive glass window in the bathroom so you was on full view from the glass doors so we had to hang towels everytime we used the bathroom or every one could see you , cleaner will pop in a few times just to bring you random stuff he thinks you might need n then will expect a tip but they clean okay bathrooms could do with a bit of a refurb , there's a big pool outside of every room nearly but they are FREEZING and there's no way u could let the kids go in the main swimming pool is cold but bearable with two slides but close at 1 and open at 3 but you can't swim at 3 because its freezing from the wind in dec at that time when swimming , there are a few restaurants Indian , Mexican, grill, Italian, the main restaurant and the food court best place to eat was the food court same food every day 12 till 5 but its was okay Mexican I'd say was okay soooo slow tho all others I wont comment on because they was unbareable breakfast in the food court was okay 7 till 10 this place is over run by Russians they are very rude and will cause trouble for no reason we was verbally assaulted by them on several occasions most of the staff are miserable and rude they have reps walking round trying to sell you trips etc all the time very annoying after 7 th time the staff will plague the kids when they are eating and take your plate while your still eating beach is a fair way really but there is a little bus that takes you rest of way when u walk under the tunnel u have to get there super early or crap places at the back where the bar and snack bar are and they stink really bad so best off been right at front , few times when kids was playing on beach front the photographer would bring girls to be photo graphed on sea edge abit explicite when there's 4 kids under the age of 5 at side of her but if you walk out of hotel , walk over road and get a taxi from there NOT out side hotel or hotel taxi ( they rob you blind) you can get a taxi to Union Jack bar for 5 to 10 egp and if a life saver cheap beautiful food , also about 2 pm they turn sprinklers on in your gardens so if your chilling by your room it's a night mare cause you can't let kids go on grass coz the put manure on it and about 4 in morning they walk round with a smoke machine that's so loud makes every one up, outside every room is a speaker playing loud music ( Christmas music as we went in dec) from 5 in morning till 12 at night also we found very pleasant was FLYS not!!!!! They was every were every food place all round pool they was every were we spent a fortune on fly and mosquito stuff a absolute night mare all in all I would defo not stay here again and defo not recomend

Room Tip: Away from mosque very loud on a morning get a room by food court or else you will have to walk miles...

Firstly don't expect five stars it is more like a three star. Like the other reviews here the food isn't the best, however you can always find something to eat so try some different things you may be surprised. We went scuba diving on the pyramid diving centre boat trip for twenty five pounds worth every penny truly amazing. The hotel was great all in all for the money paid and I would return again for a relaxing fortnight to escape the Christmas rush and the appalling British weather.

Nice hotel with only 5 min walk from Red Sea! Good choice of activities to take. Reception response to problem solving were too slow. Be careful with towels - if someone will take yours accidentally you'll be charged 15 GBP at the reception. Food was average, mostly same taste each day, potatoes half cooked. The same time that all were compensated by very good overall atmosphere in hotel area. Thanks a million to great animation team (especially the ones speaking English Amr and Omar) - great sense of humor, full of energy all day long and can cheer you up! And belly dance leaded by Amr was awesome! Keep it going like that!

It may happen that staff won't understand English and will keep communicate in Russian. And again - it all was compensated by very friendly attitude and good service made still somehow.
