we travelled as a family ages 52,49,21,17, had the best time ever, weather was superb, couldn't fault the accommodation , very clean, bathroom very large and immaculate, heated pool was our favourite as most of the daily entertainment wa centred around this pool, animation team worked tirelessly to keep eveyone entertained thankyou to Messe,Fox,Jasper, Lucy, Silke sorry cant remember other name, Tony to pool barman was amazing and remembered what each of us drank from day one,Fodd was totally acceptable in the main restaurant, but felt like a school canteen, try the a la carte's, best service and food amazing our favorite was the Lebanese, whih was never busy, italian seemed everyones favourite. the beach was fine but the coral reef was a bit disappointing, the reef at sharm had alot more fish the year before, Quad biking is a must.

Recently returned from a weeks holiday at the Stella gardens part of this hotel. We had a great time! The whole complex is quite large and there is a fair bit of walking between pools, restaurants etc etc. we felt the better of the two hotels (gardens & beach) was our one. Especially as we have a four year old, there are slides and wave pools near by.
I wasn't overwhelmed by the food in the main buffet restaurant but it was absolutely fine. If you like eggs then breakfast will defo be your favourite meal. Every day I had omelette, boiled egg, fried eggs and a poached egg for good measure!!!! The a la carte restaurants were great especially the Lebanese one.

Now for the staff. Absolutely magnificent. We couldn't walk 20 yards without a waiter or cleaner or pool staff taking time out to speak to our little boy. He loved it. The animation team exactly the same. The shows were sometimes a bit iffy but they're personality made up for it! Messi, Fox, Silka, we're absolutely lovely. But a special mention has to go out to our favourite, CASPER!!! My son, BOBBY loved him the most. We also have to mention our favourite waiter, SAMUELL. If you come across him give him our love. He has a heart of gold. We really recommend the gardens hotel and you won't be disappointed!! We are in our 30's and our son Bobby is 4

Room Tip: Closer to reception has less walking for buffet restaurant/evening entertainment however best heated...

just returned from 2 weeks at the Stella beach, me my wife and 3yr old daughter had a great time, the staff were amazing, the only down sides to this holiday were the majority of guests were rude Russians and the food in the main restaurant was not hot and choice was not great.
the only other bad point was lack of mattresses for the sun loungers, apart from those minor things it was first class, we would like to give a special thank you to the following staff members
Milad, Mahmoud(swim up bar) and Moko and Massimo they made the holiday for our 3yr old daughter she is still telling all the family and her friends back home about them and how amazing they were!! anybody that goes here will have an enjoyable holiday.


the a la carte Resturants were first class well worth a visit especially the Italian

What a fantastic holiday! Such a great, friendly and helpful staff. I was so surprised as I was thinking that people from Egypt are pushy, and not so friendly. I couldn't be more wrong. The hotel is huge, has more than a thousand rooms, modern and very clean. You have daily activities, ping-pong tables, billiard tables, golf, tennis etc, etc. Food is superb, every day something new, 4 a la carte delicious restaurants (my favourite is Lebanese and Chinese) 2 huge buffets, one at stella beach the other one at Stella garden, free drinks are served everywhere at the resort. 7 different swimming pools. Staff super polite, always there for you. I was staying there two weeks, first week with a friend second week by myself. I'm normally get bored easily, but not here, on the beach you can find horses and camels. I was doing everyday 3 hours private horse ridding on the dessert, beautiful view of the mountains. I came back with a such a lovely memories and a skill. Founded new hobby. Hotel organises trips every day and you have a concierge to talk to as well. Special thanks to Maher, reception manager at Stella Beach for always been so helpful, always there for us, and chef Hasan for preparing amazing eggs every morning, and thank you to rest of the staff which names i don't know, for making my holidays so enjoyable. I'll definitely be back! :-)

HI returned 2 weeks ago from a 2 weeks stay we were quite nervous as we have never been to egypt before allthough normally go caribean and south america,GOOD POINTS FIRST.its great value for money if you just want to sit on your ar*e and do nothing.staff cant do enough for you very polite and they all say hello and dont expect tips but like anywhere they go a long way and its only peanuts to us but makes a big difference,the speciality resturants are fab the lebanese and indian are the best the food is hot and tasty staff top notch, the italian and chinesse were good also,the drinks and wine while not top notch were good and the mixers/soft drinks good fanta diet coke and schweppes,the pool bars at the gardens heated pool tony is fab and works really hard and always has a smile,pools clean and tidy gardens very well maintained.rooms spacious and cleaned to a very high standard we overlooked the heated pool/bar gardens,the buffet again staff very good choice is ok a bit repetitive and lacked some meats that werent cooked with a sauce but we always found at least 2 plates of food breakfast and lunch,the beach is kept tidy and the jetty is good the beach restaurant is also ok pizza spaghetti etc,, but dont forget beach shoes its not sandy a light shingle best describes it plenty of sunbeds and wind breaks makes it a bit more private,you can use the shuttle its every 10mins or so,the rep kal was very good and sorted problems as fast as possible.just a couple of conns the reception staff same everwhere we had noisy neighbours upstairs moving furniture around at 3 am this went on for a week and they finally agreed to move us but the room was a bit tired and smelt of cigarettes so we kept our old room we could not speak to rep as it was his day off the reception staff knew this and were not very helpfull,the beach resort was opened our second week and felt corners had been cut to re-open the gardens were barely half full it seemed like madness to open the beach resort as no one was in it,we did not leave the complex but were happy to relax all in all very relaxing and would return thanks to all

Room Tip: get a top floor and you wont be woken by other guests moving furniture about?
