“Want to go back soon”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

At the start of September my friend and I visited this hotel and really enjoyed our trip. The staff and management couldn't do enough for you. One of the best overall hotels I've stayed at.

This hotel made us feel really welcome and we especially enjoyed eating in the various restaurants our favourite was the Asian where Mohamed Ali looked after us. We also enjoyed the steak house where in the daytime you could have lovely freshly cooked pizza - Mohamed and Said looked after us. Our room was regularly cleaned by Antonuis Room 12101 which was right near to the reception area and family pool. Twin room lounge joined thereon hallway dressing room area and bath and shower, w.c.

I also dined in the egpytian restaurant which I enjoyed. With the camel (Pepsi) outside, this was looked after well, its teeth cleaned daily and it was recovering from an operation but really cared for.

The lobby bar served about 5 branded spirits to Thomas Cook guests so this was nice as some of the other drinks weren't so nice the brandy didn't taste like brandy. You could drink whenever you wanted but not the same could be said for the food, we were unable to get a snack before flying home. Never mind was not the end of the world.

The room was very nice and Antouuis left me a rose which was nice and several towel sculptures. The room had a small fridge with water and soft drinks etc this was refilled when we needed it. We'd asked before for a kettle and this was provided for us. When we arrived we had a phone call to see if we had everything we needed - nice touch.

The grounds were vey nice and a pleasant walk with a waterfall in one part of the garden along with modern scupultures etc. The beach was okay but not as good as the beach next door and the snorkelling just next door was brilliant, waist high the fish you could see was amazing i went snorkelling loads of times.

We went on the snorkelling trip with Thomas Cook, but were the only english people on it but we thoroughly enjoyed this, we had 3 stops, two at sea and the last one at paradise island there was over 50+ boat moored up here, hell if you ask me. I preferred the other two stops and they serve a lunch and soft drinks. We also were fortunate enough to see dolphins. The guide on this trip did a brilliant briefing best i have seen.

I would like to return to the hotel soon and would recommend it. The tipping at this hotel is by placing money in boxes so you don't feel pushed into tipping all the time, very good idea.

I would rate this hotel above the other 3 hotels I have stayed in Sharm/Taba Heights this being my 12th visit to egpyt!!

Room Tip: Egypt is expensive for toiletries and a lot of other items so take your own with you.

Tuesday 22nd November was our shortest ever visit to SRM we were at the hotel for just one day, But it was great to return and see so many friends, spent all day at the VIP pool and a great evening in the Italian, Can't wait to return in March for a full weeks holiday.

Really enjoyed our stay -11 nights returned on 22nd November. The hotel is nice and our room and attendant very good. The highlight is of course the 7 A la Carte restaurants. Our personal favourite was the Asian which we visited 4 times and every time the food and service was first class. The Pergoal bar was good and special mention goes to Ahmed and Mahmood who were always friendly and literally had your drinks by the time you sat down. I would agree with another reviewer however in that the resort needs to make provision for the cold windy nights. all the entertainment was outside and perhaps a closed in area or patio heaters would have helped as most people found it too cold to sit out which led to the lobby bar being packed and no atmosphere as it didnt provide music/entertainment or even tv.
All in all though we truly enjoyed our break and totally erases all worries with the upset tummy as the al a cartes are all waiter service and very good

Room Tip: Ask for a central location .we were in block 15 opposite pool-most restaurants and pergola bar

We have just arrived back from our 4th visit to the sunrise royal makadi bay resort and it is evan better than it was before,there are now 7 al a carte resturants. steak house,egyptian mexican and a fish in additian to the asian,italian and mediteranian,which is perticulaly good, the manager Said and assistant Mostafa performing a first class service the Manager of the Italian Sayed is also very obliging nothing is too much trouble this applies to all the staff.
all the bars provided great sevice even when very busy especially the pergoda captain mohamad and the other two mohamads who worked for him.
The entire site was exreamly well cared for,the rooms were well looked after with the cleaning staff,
The pool staff kept the pools in good condition.
I am afraid we were too old to join in the games put on by the anmimation team but we enjoyed watching them Partick was a True professional.
We are looking forward to the next trip

Just got back after two weeks stayed 8th november until 22nd November This was our second visit after staying in June this year. We never usually return to a Hotel but due to the good value we did return.
On arrival staff recgonised us straight away and this adds to the good experience of your stay.
Bad points out of the way first the hoel is looking very tired especially the furniture and decour. The furniture around the poll bar/Pargola bar is falling apart and needs replacing.
Cold weahter has caught the hotel out with limited space and no atomsphere in the lobby bar and reception this leaves you shivering outside by the pergola bar. Even the staff were cold.
The stake House resturant was also outside and if you did not get to sit by a heater it was too cold to enjoy your meal.
They staff informed us that the area had been measured up and the area will have panels fitted to the frame in the next couple of weeks to enclose thea area , pherhaps they should consider this for the Pergola bar area.
They have also begun painting the parasols around the pool area .
Good points the staff and this is what makes this hotel.
Big big thank you to Mohammad Ali guest services, my wife has a severe nut allergy.He took the time to hand write a note to give at each resturant but also helped us arrange our bookings for the Al a carte resturants and then e mailed them to explain. This really helped us relax and took a lot of stress and worry out of stay.
Also goes wtihout saying all the staff at the pergola bar but a big thank you to Ahmed and Islam always smiling and the service was great.
Patrick on the entertainment team was a great guy and even when the place was empty in the evening due to the cold attempted to keep everyone happy and entertained.
Mohamad theThomas Cook rep was also a great help and nothing was bother to him.
Sorry to go on but yes I agree the hotel has faults and looks tired but the staff will do anything to help, the resturants are very good and all in all it gives excellant value for money.
Thank you to all the chefs but Ahmed in the Mexican who is so proud of his resturant and came out each visit to check out everything and it was excellent.
