We stayed at the Concorde Sport for 2 weeks and it was lovely!!!,
We had a double room which was very nice and spacious. Huge bed, loads of storage space 2 double wardrobes, but not many hangers. The bathroom was clean with loads of little bottles of toiletries, even shoe polish!. Included in the price was air-con, fridge and safe. Tv had a few english channels including 3 movie channels. We were near the reception which is nearer the airport but had no problems with noise but if your a light sleeper ask for a room away from reception.
The staff are all lovely. They majority of them speak very good English and are always trying to learn more. The room guys made towel sculptures for us and would do anything to help. You get 1.5ltr of water everyday in your room. The waiters are always there to get your drinks, the cocktails can be a bit strong but the non-alcoholic ones are very nice aswell. They all seem very proud to be doing their job and will do their upmost to help you, they do talk to English more than the russians but the russians are rude and ignore people!. We tipped the room maids LE£20 (about £2.50) and the waiters about the same for each week. £2.50 isnt much for 7 days of great service!!
Anyone who complains about the food is hard to please!! There really is something for everyone. They usually have a local dish and other dishes from around the world. There is always burger buns, hot-dogs, fries, salad, pasta etc. They also had things like fajitas, canneloni, cottage pie, steak and kidney pie, we even had roast beef and yorkshire puds for sunday dinner. Every night there is a bbq which usually has chicken of fish, roasted veg, jacket spuds etc. If none of that appeals they make individual pizzas for you and there nice. Breakfast there were pancake, waffles, sausages, beef! bacon, tomatoes, they also make fried eggs or omeletes while you wait. Usual cereal, fruit and french pastries ect. Breakfast boxes are also available if your going on an early morning excursion, cairo, luxor etc. they dont cost anything just order the day before.
Location & facilities
The hotel has 2 sides and the hotel runs a shuttle to the front every 10 mins. The front isnt as friendly as the sport and it also get very busy with people not being able to get a sunbed-no probs with this at the sport. The hotel is only about 10 min walk from Soho Square which is a lovely place. No hassel in any of the shops. The restuarants are also lovely. the Bombay was very nice ate there twice. Would recommend it not expensive either was about LE£320(about £40) for 3 starters, 2 mains, 1 rice, 2 breads and 1.5ltr water. Go to the Ice Bar aswell its an experience...-5degrees!! You do get coats and gloves and a drink is included which includes international spirits costs about £17 each. The hotel also runs a shuttle 3 tiimes a day to Naama Bay. Do go as there are loads of shops and bargains. We went to egypt 2 years ago and found thid time that they dont hassel you hardly compared to what it was like. The hotel also has riding stables we did 1 hour for about LE£420 for both. We had never ridden before and a stable hand walked out for the full time we were out.
We used a company called Sharm Day Tours, they have a website(www.sharmdaytours.com) and you can book before you go and a rep will come to your hotel to collect money. We cannot fault them they sent a text to say welcome to egypt during excursions they text to see if everything was ok, we had a slight problem with trip to cario but 1 text and 5 minutes later and everything was sorted. They communicated brilliantly and they even text to say they hoped we had have a nice time when we were going home. Would highly recommend.
Overall we had a fantastic time and would recommend this hotel to anybody.
Go and enjoy your holiday is what you make it!!!
