Another wonderful, relaxing visit to the RS. Every time we go, it just gets better.
Met by Gamal, the RS greeter inside the airport customs building. He is dressed in white shirt, black tie and trousers. This guy stands out from the rest of the crowd. He walks you to the front of one of the custom officers desk. You can feel the eyes of hundreds of passengers behind you. They are probably asking - why are they getting this priority treatment? I would have liked to have told them that we are guests of the Royal Savoy. The customs officer stamps our passport, and waives us through. Gamal collects our bags and whisks us to the limousine waiting outside. Within 15 minutes you are inside the lounge of RS.
On return to the airport, Gamal does everything for you, and within 10 minutes you are inside the airport lounge. What a service. It is worth going to the RS just for this experience.
We were greeted by the reception staff as family. During your stay, George front of office assistant manager, Michael, Samuel, Ana and team are there to provide you with all your needs. Nothing is too much for them.
When reading reports on tripadvisor, some visitors go B & B. However, I would strongly advise guests to use the S Class All Inclusive. This is a superb system, which allows you to use all restaurants and bars on site, in the Savoy, and the numerous outlets in Soho Square. There is no need to look at prices, just order, and enjoy. There is nothing worse on holiday than worrying if you are spending too much. When settling your bill at the end of your holiday, there is nothing to pay. If going B & B, you can upgrade to S Class when you arrive.
All the rooms are beautiful suites with views of the pools and the Red Sea. At this time, they are extending the hotel from approx 35 rooms to 80 rooms. Some of the new suites are out of this world. The building work should be complete by end of May. It will be spectacular. We will have to rename the hotel to the Royal Royal Savoy.
In the grounds of the RS, there are 3 small pools, with ample sitting areas, for sun and shade, with numerous umbrellas. These are quite relaxing areas. The pool area is looked after by Memo ( Mr Smile Face ). He will make sure that your sun beds etc. are in the place were you require to sit, and will make sure that the place you choose is yours for the holiday. Nothing is too much trouble for him. Mohammed and Bishoy, the pool waiters make sure that you have supplies of water all day, and bring you any drink you require. The service is wonderful. How these 3 guys work in temperatures of 30 degrees plus, continually walking from area to area, supplying this service with a professional standard. We spent most of our day relaxing in this area.
If you require a larger pool etc. you can use the Savoy facilities, but be warned, there are children. Whilst RS visitors can use all Savoy facilities, Savoy visitors cannot use RS facilities.
Breakfast can be taken on the terrace, and there is a good selection to choose from. However, people who like the true English style breakfast, maybe disappointed, but they can go across to the breakfast room in the Savoy, where the selection is much larger and varied.
All the restaurants are very good, and the staff go out of their way to ensure you enjoy. Our favourites are the Rosamarina, Italian with Mohammed and Alfred Fahmy as managers. We got a big cuddle from Alfred every time we visited the restaurant. The food is excellent, and the king prawns are superb, and for lunchtime, the Seafood restaurant, run by Saoud, who greeted us like his best friends. The chowder, king prawns and the sea bream are wonderful.
We visited the Hot Rock restaurant, where you cook you meat on a hot stove, which is different and fun, and the Mia Thai in Soho Square, which serves excellent food. There are numerous other restaurants catering for every taste.
There are numerous drinking outlets in Soho Square, and entertainment. The Square is 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
For a pre dinner time drink, and a night cap or two, the Safari Bar in the Savoy is the place to go.
Wonderful, hard working staff - Osama, Mohammed ( Zoro ), Eid, Rami and Wilson, who will make any non alcohol/alcohol drink you require. What a team.
The hotel is set in beautiful gardens and extensive grounds, which is ideal for an early morning stroll. The beach is very well looked after, and RS customers have their own private beach with cabanas, and their own bar and beach service.
All in all, the best hotel that we have visited. The service is second to none. This is laid back luxury, and the staff are exceptional, and this is why all tripadvisor reports are top rated.
