My husband and I stayed at the Concorde for 10 nights in October. The weather was 40 degrees most days.
The hotel was beautiful, the room we stayed in was spacious and clean, the staff were always helpful. There were 2 restaurants you could dine in for breakfast 4 places you could go for lunch but there was only 1 main restaurant for dinner. To give the hotel their dues, it is a different theme every night, and there is always some "plain" food for those who don't like to try something new. We didn't starve!
There were several smaller pools round the hotel so if you wanted somewhere quieter away from the hustle and bustle of the main pool you could find sun beds there. We never had a problem finding sunbeds throughout our whole stay. Just be aware the sun is up at 5.30 and sets around 5,30pm so most people are up and about early.
The snorkelling off the jetty at the hotel is lovely, we snorkelled most days, it is quiet at 7.30am and then again at 1,30pm (when everyone goes for lunch!).
You could walk to SoHo square and watch the fountain show on an evening, they have bowling, restaurants and bars (it is slightly on the expensive side as it is owned by the Savoy!). but realistically it was hotel prices.
We went ot Naama bay which wasn't our cup of tea, very busy and bustley and slightly annoying, you couldn't just wonder, however the english bar - The Tavern is great for a pint!
The russian guests can be rude to staff and guests, we tended to ignore their rude comments and were polite to the staff, you may find the politer you are to staff (and a tip doesn't go a miss) you will recieve first class service from the staff. The russians - i would ignore theire rudeness - it didn't cause any upset for us on our holiday.
I can't fault the hotel - it was lovely and I would stay again.
