Siva Sharm Resort & Spa
Ranked #83 of 231 Hotels in Sharm El Sheikh
Reviewed 5 January 2013

The hotel is very tired and need of a refurbishment, food very boring , same day in day out. The drinks are local brands and to be honest like paint stripper.the bar closes at 11;00, if you want to stay you then pay for drinks. 11:00 pm on holiday is early !

There was a high volume of Russian guests who were rude arrogant and unpleasant which spolied the stay at the hotel. That said the staff at the Savita are amazing and so helpful. On a positive note the New Years Eve gala was spectacular

The highlight of the holiday was the friends we met and the TAVERN in NAMMA BAY : Great English pub with scrumptious English food , the place rocks and the welcome there is second to none

Room Tip: we were lucky enough to have a sea view room which was beautiful

Stayed at this hotel from 19th November 2012 for a week. Was worried about some reviews before i travelled. I will be honest, this isn't a 5* hotel. The services of the staff were 5* definiely, especially the hotel cleaners! We had a lovely room on the 1st floor with an incredible view which i couldnt fault. Only downside was that the restraunt was on the 7th floor so we had to climb the stairs or take the lift.

Pool/Sunbeds
Getting sunbeds was ok, we did get up early to put our towels out as 90% them had been taken by 9am or reserved. You will be hassled on the first day around the pool to do trips, excursions and the spa but just say no and they remember you the next day and won't bother you again. Mention to Chris Brown by the pool who always said good morning and had a nice chat to us. The pool was lovely but beware that some of the concrete slabs around the outside are sticking uup and can be a hazzard.

Food/bars
The food wasn't absolutely amazing, some days it was better than others. Breakfast i couldn't fault either, huge range of pastries, cereals, pancakes/crepes, waffles, fry up (obviously apart from bacon as it is a muslim country).
The rest of the food there was a wide range so you always had something to choose from.
All inclusive drinks was ok, the hotel should have larger glasses though, its all inclusive, its not like you're paying for it, so you will have to keep getting up for a refill.
International brands arent included so some nights we did pay for those but cheap.

Staff
The staff are all lovely, would do anything for you if you just ask, tip them and they will remember you easy peasy. Tip: take small denominations of dollars or pound coins for tips.

Rooms
The room we had was lovely, the best view possible of the pool and ocean. The bed was HUGE and compfortable. Cleaned every day, mini bar stocked with bottles of water. Bathroom was ok.

Beach/sea/ocean
Be warned if you want a sandy beach, this hotel does not have it, it is stones/rocky due to the coral. So if you want a sandy beach this isnt the hotel for you. We spent most of the time by the pool anyway so we wasn't that bothered. You have to go on a jetty to swim in the ocean as the coral is protected, but the ocean was lovely and warm and full of tropical fish!

Spa
Me and my boyfriend had a hour and a half treatment, A Turkish Bath for around £30 each which came to about 700ish Egyptian Pounds. Our skin felt lovely afterwards and the massage was great. Definiely worth the money as you get to use the sauna and jacuzzi also.

Overall
Wasn't bad for what we paid for a week, i wouldnt spend 2 weeks here myself but it was nice and relaxing break. Lots of activities and things to do.

Room Tip: Take $1 bills of £1 coins for tips, ask for a lower floor if you can as the higher floors have share...

I visited the savita a year ago, I found that although the interior of the hotel was lovely and the views were spectacular from our balcony the people who worked in the hotel were very rude. The place was over run by pushy arrogant people and staff at the pool who do hourly 'fitness sessions' call you boring if you don't join in. Expect to tip A LOT!! Also there is no sandy beach, just rock and a jetti. Other than that the rooms were reasonable and the food was ok!

I took the time to read the reviews and generally they seemed OK. Where did you all go.... not to the same place as my partner and I. The hotel looked impressive from the outside but once inside the reality hit home (hard). My home is more 5 star than this Hotel and that is when I have not tidied. As a non meat eater I was extremely disappointed and always hungry. The dish every evening was boiled fish in a pesto sauce. As we ate out this A/L holiday was not cheap. The alcohol was like putting your lips onto a petrol pipe at a gas station, an experience not to be repeated or tried unless you are thinking of joining the circus. We were both also sick for 2 days, thank god for the cleaner....although I doubt he felt the same about us.
The only saving grace for this hotel were the staff who tried their best under extreme conditions.
The Russians are in a world of there own. They have obviously never seen food before or been taught manners by their parents... Shame on you all ....

I have to say this is a Marmite Hotel experience, you'll love or hate it. Yes there is dated decor, hideous cracked marble bathrooms and jet fuel free drinks. The good, is very very good- The view from the Hotel terraces, as it was out on a headland, is a fab 210 degrees stretching from desert hills, to the sea. The restaurant is 5 stories up , you felt like Bond with that backdrop, surrounded by Russians . Just be quick with bagsying a outside table. Very surprised most chose to sit inside the canteen-esque restaurant. Many were more interested in positioning themselves to grab desirable food when it appeared. I lived on melon and meat, which suited me. If you're more choosy or insist on chips for which there was always a queue, you;ll be less enthusuastic. Russians, as you'd have read from the other reviews are laughably rude. Fun watching the bar staff refusing more than 2 drinks per Russian. Soho Sq Market is 3 minute walk away, I saw someone else describing it as 30 mins - what route did they take? Russian entertainment excellent (really!) Yoga, and dancing classes during the day, variable shows at night. Constant day time music from these, mostly foreign and catchy, made you feel you were indeed abroad, though not necessarily in Egypt. They sprayed for bugs with Hotel height plumes of smoke every evening, sending the Yoga dudes and sunbed dawdlers hurtling to their rooms. I did ask as to whether it was poison or steam, it smelt of bitter fireworks, predictably I never got a convincing sounding answer. Never got bitten either so worth losing a little bit of lung? I've plumped for a generous 5 stars as on the journey back, many hotels the bus picked up from, were isolated and no where near the beach or a market. Other good things at the Savita -. Pool - very long almost a figure of 8, good for long distance swimming,, snorkelling a walk down a jetty (coral 50% bleached - fish still there though). Beds are huge and very comfy. Room very big, done up like a B and B in Plymouth. What do you expect? it's very cheap Balcony view though, once again, pure Bond.

Room Tip: Sea view is essential.

Well it's certainly not 5* it's a bit tired & needs more love & attention but with a little work it would be.. But the staff were definately 5* from Ahmed on reception thru the restaurant guys & our lovely sayed & chef zoltan who couldn't do enough to help us, down to the pool & beach guys 100% excellent.. Animation team I thought were such good fun & spoke so many languages.. Merry Xmas to becky, johnny, omid the best belly dance teacher!! Gigi the lovely salsa dance teacher & all the rest of the team I thought you were fabulous fun & my sister & our friends thoroughly enjoyed our stay.. My criticisms are small like the bars closing at 11pm, although I understand cos some of Russians who drink too excess, are extremely rude to everyone, but please buy some decent quality spirits because it was awful.. The Ukrainians however where a fantastic bunch of people with a smile & a chat all be it limited but they at least they tried.. All you people out there looking for a good holiday with excellent staff & great location this is for you!! Enjoy & hope to see you all again next year..
