“Excellent Views and Peaceful location”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

Just came back from Na'ama Bay Jan 2013. We spent a week at Movenpick. Beautiful views and nice quiet location at the end of na'ama bay. Unfortunately, we had cold weather and the open plan hotel was not cosy but in hot weather it would be perfect. The endless stairs to go up and down to and from the swimming pool/beach to the rooms and fitness centre were confusing and we got lost getting back to our room the first night! But at least the stairs keep you fit! Asked to change rooms and the staff were obliging. Shame the hotel lobby was so lifeless and cold, the hotel generally was quiet and lacked atmosphere. Although at times noise from other guests could be heard, and the loud music coming from na'ama bay was audible at night, more so in some rooms than others.
Staff were variable, some were very helpful and friendly but room service was poor and lack of english made ordering very frustrating. There is also a small charge fro each room service request (be warned! as we didnt know!).
The excursion centre was good and we booked trips to St Catherine and Ras mohamed which were good value for money as we haggled a good price. Give the bedoiun dinner a miss, although Quad biking was good the dinner was poorly organised in filthy surroundings. There was no tent and candles as promised..very disappointing..and COLD!
The new diving centre that has opened in the hotel was excellent. We booked diving to Tiran Island Straits. The guy in charge was excellent and gave us a free diving lesson in the pool because our dive was postponed to the following day due to windy weather. Very professional manager, with helpful tips and new equipment. We got a good deal as it was a quiet season and they have recently opened and looking to expand their business. I would reccommend their dives. But make sure you check how many dives you are getting for the money, as we only got one dive 2 snokelling opportunities, instead of 2 dives as we were told.
Rangoli restaurant was great (and I'm indian and can vouch that it was good food!).
Shopping at the hotel..there was one shop where the guy kept hassling us as we walked up and down the stairs, so we avoided his shop...but make sure you buy some egyptian oils from the spices shop ERBORISTERIA. Mohamed Ahmed who runs the shop gave us a great price on some oils which they use in the hotel spa which smells heavenly. He also made us tea and we sat and chatted in his shop which was our nicest most authentic egyptian experience of the whole hotel, and na'ama bay!! It is a shame the hotel does not do more to promote local cuisine and customs more.... but overall and great hotel which needs some improvements but has a lot to offer expecially in warmer months. The snorkelling off Beach 4 was also impressive..

Room Tip: Decide if you want sun during the day, or views of the sunset in the afternoon....we went with the l...

Took a while to find this hotel on trip advisor since its spelled wrong haha. We spent 1 night here so we could drive in daylight next day travelling back to Taba on 1st January. Great hotel if a bit confusing with the lifts, we did not know which floor we should use to get out. Rangoli is an Indian a la carte restaurant, which we went to with very good food and service thank you Mohammed. This is first time in this hotel but already 3 visits to the restaurant (we visited Sept 23rd 2012), which is extra. Room lovely, shower/ bathroom fantastic. Nice pool area and breakfast area, beautiful surroundings, well done Movenpick. I and we will be back again no doubt as we live and work in Taba Heights 2 hours away.

It was my first Egypt experience, but my husband stayed at this hotel for more then 5 times - he says, it's the best in Sharm.
I loved it.
The territory is big. Rooms are nice and well-cleaned.
I've heard a lot about food quality in Egypt - but daily breakfasts with great cooked eggs and big variety of dishes and one dinner with the seafood speciality (everything - all you can eat) were good.
The hotel has several beaches and big pool, by which you can find a nice cafe.
We used the tennis cort (5 euro per hour) and the spa - sauna was great! But I won't recommend the massage on the beach - the staff was late for 20 min, what, they supposed, was normal...
And the most important thing (for the ladies, I think) - there was no annoying attention, which obsess you outside the territory - you can really relax there.

We stayed at the hotel from the 15th till the 29th of December 2012. It was our 8th visit and we shall certainly return.
It is the first time in all these years that I write a review of my second home to thank the team which has become almost a family.

My only regret relates to the present condition of the SPA/fitness centre.

Before it was rented out I always used to take a session of massage, because the staff was highly professional, the centre was as spotless as a hospital and the prices were reasonable.
Unfortunately now all this is in the past.
The guests complain about the masseurs lacking competence, the facilities are dirty, hammam smells, bags of food waste can be found behind the fitness centre.
The massage tent at beach No. 1 is dirty. The towels there are never changed. The tent is mostly used by the sales people of the SPA/fitness to lie or sit on the massage table in most frivolous manner.
I was greatly surprised to hear from one of the masseurs that she was the one who provided massage for Mr.Sarkozy and Carla Bruni during their stay at Sofitel. This is certainly false advertisement, simply because there was different staff in the SPA at that time.
I'm sure that the above said may be proved by an inspection of the SPA/fitness and by talking to other guests.

Now when I have finished with the unpleasant remarks I am happy to come to testimonials which certainly prevail.

I would like to congratulate Mövenpick on overtaking the hotel which has been attracting guests by its unique location and ambiance.

It was a pleasure to see that what was created with the outstanding enthusiasm of Mr. Mohamed El Tayar, who used to be the Guest Service Manager in Sofitel times, still remains and the staff trained by him still does the job according to the highest standards. I wonder if Moevenpick could get him back...
I'm happy that the best traditions are preserved along with the introduced improvements (to name few, complimentary water in the rooms and new beverages at breakfast).

I would like to thank the people who make our every stay memorable.

My special gratitude is for Mr. Mohamed Hassan, whose desserts and pastries are so delicious that even the dietary conscious is silent. French bakeries are left miles behind.

Speaking of the hotel restaurants I should mention that the Indian restaurant is still one of the best in Sharm and one can enjoy the spectacular view of the bay from the open veranda. I would like to thank Mr. Hanny for the unforgettable reception for us and our friends on Christmas Day. From the decoration of the table to the delicious food everything was perfect. He certainly knows his job, controls everything with a glance and has exquisite manners.

A special issue is the work of Ms. Olga who is superb as a choreographer. She can make jam of onions and real show stars of the beach-boys. If it was not for her the guests would never guess the secret artistic talents of the recreation team.

The stables of the hotel are a true gem. They are an attraction to the hotel equal to the beauty of the Red Sea. The horses are a way better than in London Hyde Park and they get better care. The guests’ safety is always a priority, there is always something to enjoy both for beginners and for experienced riders. All these could not be possible without the effort of Mr. Ahmed, Mr. Mahmoud, Mr. Nasser and Mr. Shaaban - modest, hardworking and extremely professional members of the stables team, each of them is worth their weigh in gold.

I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude to the recreation team, the people whose daily work and enthusiasm make the hotel a second home for many repeated customers.

I could not but thank Mr. Reda Mohamed of the housekeeping who last year found and returned my golden earring which I dropped in the bathroom without noticing and considered lost. To me this is very significant for nothing can make you feel more at home than knowing that there are decent and trustworthy people around.

Once again many thanks to those I know by names and to those I don’t.
We are looking forward to the next stay.

Room Tip: Since the hotel is a kind of an amphitheatre overlooking the bay all the rooms have sea view.

Was at this htl in august 2009 .
This time i am still in the hotel for 4 more nights. Came to spend new years and relax. It isnt the case. The hotel changed owner from sofitel is now part of moevenpick chain, and there is a lack of training in the staff. And today had an argue with swimming pool bar service, because they were charging more and with a receipt handwritten. Rooms arent sound proof. Very noisy - plains landing every 5minutes during the day. At the swimming pool ir at the beach you are bothered by sales for excursions spa beauty and at the end of the afternoon while trying to relax in the room you are interrupted by housekeeping giving you a stupid bombon. Reception service is very slow. Someone take care of you and then send you to anothet colegue that by the moment is busy and you have to wait again. Swiss have good references in the. Hospitality industry but really cant understand some codes of behaviour from staff.
Positive thing- bathroomd were renewed.
I am not considering to come a third time

Spent one week there in december.
The location is great, next to the casino (is worth a visit), and near nama bay.
The resort is beautiful, built into a hill so every room has sea view. The resort is very clean and has a green surrounding, really appreciated it.
Food was excellent, we sticked to full board, and there was plenty of choice each and every time with different buffets every evening, one of the best i ever had.
Rooms are okay, but nothing more, but with a hudge shower. But here we experienced a Nonacceptable. we had some kind of a connecting room, so just a small door (look picture) seperated our room to
the next one which was no problem until the last 2 days where we got neighbours. You can really hear every single word by then from the other room.
The service is perfect in the restaurant and the small bars. But in the entertainment bar we experienced an inacceptable service. We moved twice since we didnt got served two times, and the shichas are a bad aswell are the cocktails if you get served there at the main bar.
I dont recommend the spa, really bad service and their staff are really annoying people at the beach. And the sport facilities are really bad!We wanted to play tennis and the only intact equipment they had was for kids.
Snorkling is a dream in their housereef. A hudge area is reserved for snorklers only with wonderful reefs an easy entrances.
The pool is nice as well, and I can say nothing about the entertainment program because as always we avoided that.
I would recommend the hotel, but you Have to ask for a non connecting room. The hotel could easily get 5 stars from me but was also close to 3 stars, due to the inacceptabel service at the main bar an the non insulated room plus the poor spa and sportequipment.
