Spent two fantastic weeks (6th-20th June) at this lovely beach resort. 3rd visit to Sharm, this one was, by far, the best. We were upgraded to a beach front room, and it was beautiful. Cleaned, fresh towels and sheets every day. The beaches always had plenty of sun beds, and a waiter service beach restaurant serving drinks and food throughout the day and evening. Snorkelling, unbelievably beautiful corals and fish. Three lovely pools, Family, Main and Relax, where you can get clean beach towels daily,(ask for a red flag, the salesmen will leave you in peace) drink cocktails in the poolside bar or be served lattes. Four main restaurants to eat in the evenings. Our favourite was the Italian, we always received 5 Star service from Osama. the Restaurant Manager, but always plenty of choice in the other restaurants. The virtual tour on the Sunrise Select website is the best way to see what this resort is really like. A few English £ coins are well received by deserving staff, but you are not expected to tip, We tipped in the last few days. If you are prone to mosquito bites, buy "Off" spray (very cheap,from the local supermarket, just outside the hotel,) it really works and is much better than the stuff you bring from home.
The one most outstanding thing about this resort was the staff, nothing seemed too much trouble. We found the management extremely obliging.(you can email direct through their own website ) all the staff are so helpful and especially pleasant to the British and Dutch guests. Our special thanks to Osama and his waiters for excellent service and lovely meals, Mohammed in the Lobby Bar. The Guest Relations girls, Maryna and Wendy, Shawky and Amed at the Relax Pool, Alaa on the beach, Maged the beach rest room cleaner, and Mohammed at the roof top bar. We are planning to return again in May/June and again in September.
