I was very nervous about this hotel as it does get very mixed reviews but I can honestly now say that we had a superb holiday for two weeks at the end of August 2012.
I have to agree with the reviews that the staff are wonderful, they work so hard to keep the place clean and tidy and looking beautiful, they are very friendly and always say hello, we had our three old daughter with this and they treated her like a princess.
The accommodation was fantastic, we where in block 16 in a junior suite overlooking the “relaxed pool” which was just a perfect location for us, the room was clean and well presented, we had a flat screen TV and the air con worked perfectly, good job as the temperatures where in the 40’s. The bathroom was spacious with a large shower and again was clean.
We mainly ate at the Reef which was good, the food was of a good standard with fantastic bread, the staff there are great and we had a great waiter in B Boy, he looked after us so well and provided drinks when he could see ours where empty and always got some bottles of water to take away at the end. We also ate at Fusion, the beef comes highly recommended, we also tried all the other snack restaurants, recommend the pizza at the Beach Restaurant for lunch.
Everybody seems to comment on 5stars and if it is or is not, from the people we met that had stayed in other hotels in Sharm they all commented that this was one of the best, would we go back again, absolutely.
One bit of advise - always wash your hands after handling the money, that is how the bug is transferred between people!
