I have just returned from the Baron Resort after a fantastic 10 night holiday. I really couldn't find fault and would certainly recommend this hotel.
The lobby is welcoming, marble and luxurious. We were greeted with a drink and cold towel and checked in efficiently. We went to the room and our cases delivered only a few minutes later.
The rooms were spacious, airy and spotlessly clean. Some may consider them fairly basic for a 5* hotel but they were perfectly comfortable with all the facilities that you would need, including a mini bar restocked daily that is all included.
The pool is huge with plenty of sunbathing space and very comfy sunloungers. There's lots of parasols and the pool guys are quick to come around and put them up and bring you beach towels. There is a bar right by the pool too....perfect.
The beach is lovely and again plenty of sun loungers. There is a jetty taking you out to deeper water and you can see lots of fish without even getting wet!
There is a choice of restaurants included in the premium all inclusive package and I have to say that the food in all of them was very good. The Sinai restaurant is the main buffet restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. There was a huge selection of food all of which was great. Breakfast: fruit, pastries, hot food, freshly cooked eggs and omelets to name just some. Lunch: salads, rolls, meats, fish, pasta etc etc. In the evenings again so much choice with a different theme each evening inc BBQ, Egyptian and Mediterranean. There is then the BBQ, Seafood, Egyptian,Indian and Italian Ala Carte restaurants, you need to make reservations for these with guest relations. All great, our favorites were the Indian and Italian...make sure you visit these...delicious!!
The thing that really made the holiday extra special was the staff. The service was brilliant. Everyone you passed would smile and say hello from the cleaners to gardeners and bar staff and waiters. The bar staff at the pool bar were great, up for a laugh (Matt and Mohammed are a credit to the hotel!) interactive and made fab cocktails! The staff want to do all they can to make your holiday enjoyable. I did get a number of mosquito bites, I mentioned this at reception, the next morning we were bought a plug in repellent for the room and they were full of apologies. The presence of the management team was incredible too, never before have I known management to be so available. They would ensure they spoke to guests to make sure they were enjoying the stay and welcomed feed back. We also met senior management including the General manager of all the Baron hotels (Ahmed) and what an excellent team there were. The would often be in the restaurant, introducing themselves and again making sure you were enjoying your holiday. ALL of the staff were superb and I would like to thank them for making our holiday extra special!
A fantastic hotel that I would certainly recommend!
It would be worth paying a little extra for a sea view room.
