Just returned from a 2 week holiday at Sea Magic, Shark's Bay, Sharm El Sheik.
This was our 9th visit (5 times to the Pyramisa) 4th time to Sea Magic. Flash International took over the hotel in April 2010, changing it's name from the Pyramisa to Sea Magic. They have spent a lot of money and made improvements to the hotel. Very shortly the Pyramisa Group will take back over the running of the hotel (May 2012?). We are glad that most of the management team and staff are staying on as they are wonderful, hard working people who are always happy to help!
Emad Afifi (Manager of Reception, Rooms and Recreation) works very hard to make people's holiday enjoyable and is well supported by Ahmed Hussein. Mohammed Akaresh (Restaurant Manager) is very busy but always had time to listen and chat.
Over the years we have made many friends within management and staff. Egyptian people are the reason why we return twice a year, year after year. The staff on the beaches, the pool, waiters, cleaners, house keeping, reception, etc - a big thank you for making our holiday another wonderful stay.
Sea Magic has 7 restaurants on the all-inclusive side and one paying fish restaurant. Al Mawal retaurant (Lebanese) is a buffet with entertainment (music and belly dancing) and has lovely panoramic views overlooking Beach 1 - open during the evening only. There is a choice of other buffet restaurants, Al-Sakkya, View, Fusion, La Strazza (mainly Italian food), Royal Wok (Chinese - look out for Sammy who is very helpful). The indian restaurant is also worth a visit.
Most of our evenings were spent in the Dragon Bar watching live entertainment, dancing - very good atmosphere. There are 3 beach bars and one pool bar. We spent most days on Beach 1 and recieved excellent service there. The beach boys always find you a sunbed no matter what time of the day it is!
We met many returning guests from years gone by and all of them also enjoyed their holidays - no complaints and no upset stomachs reported.
There were many more Italians at the hotel this time, plenty of Russians and a few Dutch - there were more than normal numbers of English and Egyptian people staying too.
My wife and I will be returning as usual in November to the newly named Pyramisa. I send my good wishes and many thanks to the great management team and staff for yet another wonderful holiday and wish you good luck for your new venture with the Pyramisa Group.
