During our stay 4 to 11 Feb the number of residents was low due to many cancellations because of the troubles in Egypt. Only around 100 people instead of the 1200 originally booked. As a result of this 6 out of the 8 restaurants were closed, only 1 pool open and 1 bar open. All the beach areas, beach toilets & bars were closed. The majority of the staff were layed off. I can fully understand the Hotel Management's decision however I confirmed with other people staying at the resort that the closing down of the facilities commenced days prior to our arrival. I have checked the internet tonight and there appears to be no updates on holiday websites stating the extensive reduction in facilities. Despite this the remaining staff tried everything to please us. Please note that I am not complaining about the hotel but want to make iminent visitors of the latest position.
The small number of remaining staff said that many of the hotels in Sharm were either closed or intending to close. Whilst in Sharm I saw no signs of trouble, the army or kerfew, however the whole place is eerily quiet. We went to Naarma Bay but were the only 4 people there and we were hasstled no end so much that we left after half an hour. Soho Square should be visited as it is newly built with resteraunts, bars and no hassle shops.
