After fabulous stay and excellent holiday experience at Continental Plaza in January 2011, we decided to book this particular hotel again. We stayed there for a week (March 27th -April 3rd) the hotel and grounds are, as they were in Jan 2011, clean and well maintained with beautiful flowers everywhere. View from our room's balcony (room number 2221) was really magnificent and room itself was really comfy. There was a mini bar with selection of soft drinks and water. Top marks for our room cleaner: room was spotlessly clean every day and our towels made into lovely animals-like shapes :) Just like during our previous stay all hotel staff exceptionally polite and helpful, we really appreciate all their efforts. Apparently in March main swimming pool is no longer heated and water really is ice cold however we found that shallow water of relaxing pool was just right. We have spent most of the time on hotel's beach. Red Sea was warm enough for both of us to enjoy swimming. Make sure you have mask (or even goggles) and aqua shoes as reefs right in the front on the beach are simply amazing. If you like sunbeds in front row the closest to sea make sure you come very early. When it comes to food I have to admit that it was not as good as before but far from what some reviewers are making it to be unless one expects pork chops, steaks, burgers, chips, pizzas etc. Breakfast food was slightly monotonous but apart from that just typical All Inclusive food and there was always something to choose from, I seriously can't complain about food. Snacks were served during the day in beach bars, if you feel peckish, I would suggest going to less busy beach bar shared with Continental Garden Reef. Drinks: avoid vodka, gin and wines as they have really nasty taste. Few other things: internet costs 5 USD for half an hour, there is lovely shisha bar just outside of the hotel (15 LE) and few shops. If you wish to venture outside the complex, hotel is 10 min away from Naama Bay so take taxi or hotel shuttle bus. And last but not least: Russians...hotel was full of them but we didn't let that spoil our holiday. During our stay there were only 2 other UK families and two Polish couples. I have seen various comments and while I agree with some of them I don't think hotel should be in any way blamed for having guest with annoying manners and behaviour. Personally what we found very annoying is Russian's total lack of respect towards hard-working hotel staff. All in all we don't regret our decision of spending a week at Continental Plaza.
