Whilst working in Tourism for 20 plus years, i was amazed about the quality and sevice levels from this hotel.
The hotel its self is a paradise , where you can please yourself were you eat where you drink and how you wish to relax, by the many pools or on the private beach.
This Hotels is one of the best that I have visited, and it suited our itenary.
The staff in the hotelmust be praised for thier dedication towards customer service , which they excelled at.
My self and my friends.will definatly be recommending this hotel to other people, and of course we will be returning to the hotel in Janaury 2011.
Top tip try and book 10day 0r 14 as you will not get the chance to enjoy all the amazing choiced of places to eat within 7 days.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

The Royal Savoy at Sharm El Sheikh is the most beautiful and luxurious hotel in which I have ever had the privilege to stay.

Our honeymoon started when we landed in Sharm and were picked up by George, who whisked us through immigration, and took us directly to the hotel and the private Royal Savoy guest entrance. Check-in was a dream come true - we were then greeted by Karina who walked us into the Royal Savoy's beautifully furnished private lounge where we were given a glass of rosé champagne (my wife had a fresh mango and strawberry juice) and had both the Royal Savoy and S-class package explained to us. We then signed our S-class voucher cards and booklets (including a free 25-minute anti-stress massage, ice-skating in Soho Square and 10 frames of bowling each to name a few!) and we were checked in. From airport to complete relaxation with drink in hand in less than 20 minutes!

The Room:

Our Royal Savoy room was stunning, complete with a four poster bed, private balcony, marble bathroom, not to mention the daily plate of desserts/puddings (they changed every day ranging from chocolate biscuits to decadent chocolate fudge cake to baklava) and our welcome fruit basket!

The bed was a dream come true, complete with a pillow menu to ensure that we got the best possible sleep.

The Service:

From the moment we walked into the Royal Savoy lounge until we retired to our room in the evening, we were looked after by wonderful members of staff who took a personal interest in making sure that we had the best possible experience while we were there. I would like to especially note Karina, Hany, the two Georges, Ali (at the Royal Savoy's private pool) and Hana (in Hot Rock).

Each and every member of staff always had a smile on their face and always went out of their way to make sure we were looked after and we had truly personalised service.

The Food:

Being a serious foodie, I can, without a doubt, say that the food at the Savoy was absolutely outstanding.

The sushi and sashimi at the Sushi restaurant was the best either of us have ever had - not surprising after we found out our chef from the Maldives was trained by 3 different Master Chefs.

The Hot Rock Dining had the most exquisite tuna tartar and beautifully selected cuts of steak. Being able to cook our own meat exactly how we wanted it was a fantastic experience by itself though the setting and entertainment made it all the more enjoyable.

Teppanyaki was fantastic, everything beautifully prepared and seasoned. Our Thai chef (you'll see her on the posters for the restaurant when you get there) was very congratulatory about our wedding and scrawled "Happy Honeymoon" in salt upside down (for her) on the cooking surface while her colleague carved a rose out of a beetroot.

The Royal Savoy lounge was also one of the stand-outs for us. Each breakfast we were greeted with our individual orders of tea, coffee and a glass of champagne which had been established on our second morning. The egg station was my personal favourite where a chef prepared any kind of omelette and even proper old-fashioned poached eggs in a whirlpool done perfectly with runny yolks every time. The lounge is open from 7am to 10pm after the 11am breakfast cut-off, the breakfast offering is taken away to be replaced by light lunch-like snacks of smoked salmon on a mini bagel and a double shot glass filled with freshly prepared chocolate and orange mousse. Around 5pm or so these would then be augmented by additional light dinner options.

The Grounds:

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, pictures don't do the Savoy justice - it is truly paradise. The Royal Savoys two private pools are heated to roughly 28 degrees C, which over look the Cave Bar, the amphitheatre, and the Red Sea. The beaches are beautiful, the paths and grounds immaculately presented with waterways and waterfalls framing your entire trip from the main foyer of the hotel to the beaches themselves. In a word: stunning.

Soho Square being just outside of the hotel was fantastic for shopping, bowling, darts, restaurants (the Sushi and Teppanyaki places among the many!).

Overall:

We couldn't have had a more wonderfully relaxing or luxurious honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing.

Excellent location and fantastic facilities especially with the addition of Soho Square where top restaraunts await you with a wide range of establishments to suit all tastes ad vry competetive prices. The staff are always welcoming and one aspect that demonstrates the true investment & commitment in this hotel by its owner is the ongoing training and development of its staff. Staff that we metthree years ago still there and with promotion not having to move around to fulfil their ambitions or climb up the career ladder - a true "grow your own" philosophy. The rooms are large well air conditioned and very well serviced. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at the Royal Savoy from arriving to departing your stay is truly a holiday. Thank you

We went to The Royal Savoy looking for the simplest of holidays - a relaxing one in the sun and that is certainly what we got. We were welcomed by the friendly staff and the check-in process was very quick. When we arrived in our room we found a cake on our table wishing us a happy honeymoon and also some flowers - a lovely touch and not something we expected. Our room was spacious, comfortable and attractive, and the bathroom whilst reasonable did very easily end up with water on the floor from the shower (and we did shut the door properly!). This was a minor gripe and we simply learned to direct the water away from the door so only caused a problem once.

We were lucky enough to be on the ground floor of our 4 room building and so we had French window access to a small garden (shared with the neigbouring ground floor room). Fortunately our garden had the sun shining on it all day because the surrounding trees were all slightly lower and further away than for the other rooms, as a result we asked the pool attendant to bring some sunbeds up to our garden, which he happily did and they remained for the duration of the stay - absolutely perfect. From here Mahmoud down at the pool bar looked after us with soft drink, wine/lager and crisps etc all day. From here we had about a 25 yard walk to the nearest pool (a 45cm deep pool) which we really enjoyed lazing around in. We also tended to go back to the main Royal Savoy bar for our lunches where a selection of light savoury, sweet canapes and fruit were available all day - this allowed us to keep our appetite for a good meal out in the evening to one of the many hotel restaurants available (our favourites were the Indian (Bombay, I think) and Hot Rock though we enjoyed all the food available.

In our opinion the B&B option we chose was definitely the best value - we did look at upgrading to the S-class (all inclusive) option after a day at the hotel but to be honest unless you have an absolutely massive appetite (and we're not afraid of a big meal) or a desire to brag about being on an all inclusive then it's not even a close decision - go for the B&B - you still get free soft drinks all day, free Egyptian lager (which is not bad) and free Egyptian wine (which probably best thought of as a harsh alcoholic drink rather than wine - but we weren't prepared to pay £50+ for a £7 bottle of wine from the traditional producing countries) .

Although there was some building work being carried out whilst we were there we can honestly say that it didn't detract from our holiday one bit (and according to the staff it was supposed to be finished by Jan 1st (wouldn't bet on that though). They are apparently also going to be renewing the Royal Savoy pools (and making them larger) to allow for the extra rooms being built so it might be worth checking about that before booking.

Overall we had a lovely, relaxing honeymoon here and would happily recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a similar holiday, in fact I would say that we will almost certainly return (plenty of other places in the world to visit as well though!)

Basically this hotel lives up to its reputation
Its clean the staff are very friendly and it’s a good resort hotel.

Some rooms are a bit dated but the hotel are refurbishing so it’s a bit of pot luck re the allocation

Many have debated the “S” class all inclusive issue as to value or not.
My wife and I are staying on bed and breakfast and to be honest whilst we brits have a reputation for binge drinking and over eating you would be hard pressed to consume the $120 per person per day uplift quoted to go from B& B to S class.
Food and drink is expensive but this isn’t just within the hotel.. its Sharm in general

Soho square is a nice addition that gives options to guests but its not operated to the same standard as the main hotel. Food quality is marginal at best and the restaurants get busy so its best to book.

If you are looking for a rest this would be a good choice
The beach and pontoons (for snorkelling) get a bit busy but the hotel is spacious and there is plenty of room for all. Only slight negative is the hotel insist on playing Christmas songs over the PA ALL DAY and most of the evening
