This is our second visit in 12 months and I can only congratulate the staff and management of this hotel for their excellent hard work. The stay was delightful and at no point were needs not met. The front office were pleasant and very welcoming. The beach front room next to the Palace was second to none with amazing views. The room was large, clean and easily within the 4-5 star standard. The en suite was similarly excellent. House keeping did an excellent job clearing out the sand etc from the daily kitesurfing sessions (Zeitouna Beach, Kite family group) which meant the room always felt fresh after a hard day on the beach!! The King size bed was very comfortable with a large selection of pillows.
The dining facilities were of a good standard and a new selection was available every day at the restaurant. No issues regarding gastroenteritis which has been experienced at other resorts on the Red Sea. It is clear that catering staff go to great measures to make sure everything is clean and tidy. The fresh orange juice every morning was delicious. There is however an ongoing issue regarding real coffee at most resorts on the Red Sea- it would be nice not to drink granulated coffee (minor point). The other restaurants at the hotel provide an alternative experience with a similarily good choice of meals. The beach hut restaurant provides a nice selection of drinks and snacks if you get peckish on the beach. The half board arrangement is ideal as you will not go hungry after a sumptious breakfast and having dinner at 1830 means you have between 1030 to 1830 you can enjoy the Sun/sea/water sports etc.
It must be noted that this hotel has quite a following with some people taking up residence for up to 3 months at a time! This highlights how excellent the hotel is!
Regarding El Gouna- the resort feels a million miles away from the ongoing issues in the rest of the country/Middle East. Its unfortunate that the current political climate in the area has resulted in tourists staying away. The degree of fear is largely unfounded and driven unfortunately by the press, people should bear in mind that El Gouna is a private city with 2 entrances both of which are gated and entry into the resort is controlled. This means unnecessary traffic to the area as a result of day trippers is kept down to a minimum. The tok-tok transport system works and is cheap by European standards. The Marinas are nice and "Down-town" is a great place to grab a mint and lemon juice in the evening at Tamr Hena. Extra provisions can be bought from Bestways which has a large collection of both imported and local goods.
We will be going again in the near future.
Excellent work Sheraton Mirmar.
