“The best holiday ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

I write reviews about every hotel i ever stay in and always give my honest opinion, if it is good i say its good if its bad then i say so. The Plaza was absolutely amazing in so many ways. The people who write bad reviews on here i have determined would not be content even if they stayed at bloody Buckingham Palace.
From arrival to departure we were treated like VIP's and that is what made our holiday for us. The room was next to one of the 3 pools over looking the red sea, and what a view to wake up to each and every morning. The rooms were in very good condition, spacious, very clean and very well maintained not any problems throughout the stay atall. The hotel layout is stunning and each block is only two stories high which makes the character of the hotel very appealing. the paths and gardens are very well looked after, and after the dreary colours of england at this time of year it was so lovely to see so many beautiful flowers in the many landscaped gardens. The beach was literally a 2 minute walk from our room and had plenty of sunbeds for everyone. My Husband who is a keen snorkeller was never out of the sea and swears that our stretch of beach had the best snorkelling he had ever seen......it was hard to get him to come out.
All Inclusive is the same worldwide and no matter how much of a fussy eater you are you can always find something to eat. The food was of an excellent quality and they did try their hardest to vary the food. What people need to remember is that they are preparing food for alot of people and therefore cannot please everyone. Having stayed in Sharm before at another hotel (were i contracted food poisining) i can honestly say the food here is good and very well cooked.
There is no doubt that it was the staff at the hotel that made our holiday. At meal times waiters would recognise us as soon as we went in and would guide us to a table they had saved for us, even to the point that they knew what we had to drink and would bring it straight over to our table. Ash was a gem and constantly asked us was everything ok or was there something he could get for us. All the staff in the coffee bar were little stars and we got to know them very well, Mohammed was very friendly and always had a smile for us. There is also Ahmed (we nicknamed him seven) from the annimation team who made us laugh so much. It is the friendliness of the staff that puts this hotel apart from others we have stayed at. They genuinely want you to have a good time and always ask if there is something they can do for you.
There is one thing that set this hotel apart from all others, The Manager. He made himself known to us very early into our stay and would come and sit and chat to us making sure our stay was good and that we were being looked after by his staff. He is quite new there himself and he has definately made a big impression on the hotel.......I dare anyone to find a nicer manager in all of Sharm.
The hotel has mainly been marketed towards the Russians in the past and there was alot of them there, infact there were only two british couples when we were there. BUT this did not take anything away from our holiday, infact we were treated much better by the staff simply because we say please and thankyou which is second nature to us. They are trying to get more british visitors to the hotel and i would very highly recommend that people try this hotel, because i promise you will not be disppointed.
We have loved our holiday so much that we are returning again this year with our children. In my husbands words "I have found my Benidorm"

A bit of advice!!!! If you are planning on doing any excursions whilst you are there and there are alot to choose from (Cairo, Luxor, Quad biking, Boat trips etc etc etc) then do not feel obliged to book with the reps at the hotels....trust me they are making a good amount of commission off each trip they sell. I would highly recommend going into Naama Bay and find Candia Tours which is straight facing the Hard Rock Cafe....Mo & El Fateh, two of the nicest lads you will ever meet. They offer the same tours as the reps but cheaper, and you get exactly the same trip.
Go to Sharm and stay at this wonderful hotel, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Room Tip: let them know before hand that you would like a sea room view and they will try their hardest to acc...

My husband and myself returned from here at the beginning of December. I cannot fault the way we were looked after. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a trouble free and relaxing holiday. Room was lovely- overlooking the sea and beach. If you want to take a holiday that is completely relaxing and where you will be thoroughly lookmed after- here is the place!!

I came from sweden and i stayed at the Continental plaza beach hotel in Sharm el Sheikh for a week and i had the time of my life !!!!
this luxurious resort with wonderful staff that cared about their guests made my vacation so full of happiness and satisfaction.

The food was great, a lot to choose from a variation every day and i did put on some weight lol !!!! theres snacks at every pool and bars to have drinks. theres also a sort of coffee bar where u can enjoy all sort of cappucino,lattes,nescafe,cacao . really good !!!!!

the rooms were perfectly well cleaned and even decorated with suprises. theres something to do for every single person of the family.
When it comes to activities they have an animation team for water aerobics in the morning and dancing on the beach, me and my mom did it everyday.
When it comes to activities for children they have a kidsclub and a huge aqua park that even i had fun in.

the hotel staff is really helpful the reception staff helped us with where to go and what places to visit and always with a smile on their face.
The beach wich is in the resort is woww and u dont even have to go out of the resort to do some snorkling or parachute ... The weather was perfectly great .

Transports :
Theres a shuttle bus that took us to naama bay many times and even the driver is a very genuine person and friendly.
i must say i am extremely positively satisfied with this trip and the continental plaza is my first and only choice when i go back to sharm wich i will do very soon again :):):)

My daughter and I have just returned from our stay at this lovely hotel. I cannot give enough praise to the friendly staff at this hotel. They went out of their way to make our time there as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Our hotel room was always clean and the rest of the hotel was too. The best meal we had at the hotel was at the Seafood restaurant, beautifully cooked and seasoned fish and seafood. What more can I say? I would definitely make a return to the hotel and hope to do so next year. Thank you to all who made our stay so memorable.

I get confused before writting my review cause of the bad comments published within the month of November as I just come back from this lovely resort after relaxing for 07 nights. I don't deny that there areas need improvement and maintenance. Hotel Location is one of the best locations to do snorkling & diving, plus the Landscape and territory are fantastic, clean, and green area is every where. Food was in need for improvement at the 01 02 days but as of the 03rd day, food quality was improved and was tasty. Also, Snacks were available in all pool bars. Aqua Park is amazing but need to be more warmer. Staff are helpful, polite and doing their best to make us enjoy our vacation as much as they can. Room was comfortable, clean and with a good sea view. The only annoying point was that majority of guests are russians but hotel management tried to come over this point by inviting all the other nationalities from Arab countries and the west europeans to a cocktail followed by dinner, and I'm really appreciating the care of the Hotel Manager for this nice touch.
Finally, It was a good choice from our agent to let us enjoy our anniversary vacation.

Room Tip: Pls ask your agent to send your requests to the hotel within your reservation

well what can i say stayed here last year when Mr Gamal was the manager he did everything he could for us to make our stay as great as he could but he had a very big battle on hishands as the food was awful and they wouldnt listen to him!!! The pool and view is lovely and could not fault that but the hotel itself is a death trap they do nothing to update it, beware on the steps they are broken and are a health hazard!! They dont know what cleanliness is the restaurants are disgusting the table mats are full of food , infact i wouldnt feed my dog in there it was so bad. Consiquently we ate bread and chips at lunchtime skipped breakfast and ate in Naama Bay every night otherwise we would have been hospitalised!!!
All they cater for is the russians , belive me it is a 80% russians and 20% english , they are so rude and arrogant its unreal
We met some other people ( martin who has left the other review on here) if you want to know anything just as us for honest answers
The poor staff i feel so sorry for them as they are working in hell and scared to death of losing their jobs , but they are so accomodating and lovely to us .
This is definatley a 2* not a 4*
God help you if you visit here !!!!!
