“Great value for money and service, We'll probably go back”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Firstly All my comments are positive towards this MAINLY ENGLISH hotel, hope this makes it easy.
The transfer to the hotel is around 15mins- Bonus!
This is your typical Egyptian mass market hotel design, long drive through well presented gardens, to a surprisingly low key entrance and lobby. Checking in was painless and our bags were taken to our room, all quite normal.
We've stayed in Sharm on two previous occasions, so were no strangers to tipping etc...

We were in BLOCK 18 this was perfect, close to the pool, reception, restaurant, beach and a al carte restaurants. Our room was big and comfortable with very efficient air con (set at 16 for day and 14deg C for night!). The telly was a 26" lcd with HDMI connections and a usb port for charging ipads ipod phones etc... EXCELLENT! You get all the standard stuff, mini fridge (charged for drinks), hair dryer, safe, HARD BEDS (ask for a topper mattress if you don't like hard beds) and a balcony.

We arrived 27th April an found the hotel about 1/3 full, on the 4th day it was 3/4 full! just right :-)

WiFi the hotel has three types of wifi, a)Free, but pretty useless lobby and outside seating area range, b)Chargeable (£40 per week as an example) all over and c)An unadvertised 1hr free per day connection, go to reception and ask for FREE TOKEN CODE

Food is well above average with good variation and quality, ALL FOOD IS PREPARED WITH BOTTLED WATER. A la carte are worth the effort of booking

The main pool is massive, split into three sections, plenty of sunbeds, with a bar located centrally. There's also a 'relax' pool located near the front of the hotel with it's own bar, it's fairly large but is full so get in early, this wasn't my kind of scene as it was too relaxing and quiet. The entertainment team were on form and enthusiastic with all the activity based around the main pool area.

NEGATIVE- Wellness team hassle you around the pool and are commission based, We had a facial (my first) I had a hair cut and two cut-throat shaves. I'd say service was on par with all other hotels, namely pretty average.

Night entertainment is good enough to keep you in the hotel with all the standard stuff doing the rounds.

DRINKS all free, and strangely for Egypt all inclusive, close enough to 'branded' spirits, my girlfriend drinks Bacardi and coke, she drank this all the time. I had a couple of vodka and oranges and was pleasantly surprised, the beer is okay too! A word of WARNING tread carefully with the cocktails, they're pretty gruesome, so have one or two for a laugh.

To sum up this hotel, it's a little tired and could do with a lick of paint here and there, the hotel staff are faultless, the general atmosphere is great, the food sets the standard for this type of hotel, the Thomson reps are on hand 08:30-12:00 and 17:00-20:00. GREAT HOTEL

We were lucky to have Magic and Sensatori (late deals) as two possibilities for our holiday
Che (English rep) organised a trip for my partner and I to view the sensatori, what an eye opener, this is a Thomson's' flag ship hotel and another world! But if you look on Trip advisor the main complaint about Sensatori is lack of sunbeds, go figure.

This was our 2nd visit the 1st been same time last year.
The hotel is spotless public areas and our room. You can see that the hotel has modernised one of the bar and it's such an improvement from last year ( it was across from client services).
We visited all 3 al la carte restaurants my favourite being Baia. Food in the Magico restaurant was always to a high standard. The pools areas were pretty quiet as was the hotel in general which was down to the troubles recently. A shame for the hotel but good for us no problem finding a bed. We tend to prefer the beach where they have rush wind breaks round the beds making it pleasant even if it was breezy.
We would definitely go back but maybe not next year as there are so many places to see

This was our 2nd time at this hotel and arrived 2nd March 2014 for 11 nights. We had great memories of our 1st visit and we were certainly not disappointed with our 2nd.
The hotel was very quiet and only about 1/4 full so the attention given by staff was remarkable,they just couldn't do enough for you.The food was excellent as before with a varied menu and there was always something suitable.
The only downside was 1 day of heavy rain which caused a few problems but nowhere near as bad as a lot of the other hotels.
This is the best hotel we have stayed in in Sharm!

My room was spotless , the cleaner decorates the bed with towels ( had a crocodile once ) .
It was large and spacious and very comfortable .

The restaurants are themed every night so you will not get bored of the selection of food and it is huge . I was a vegetarian at the time and had no problem eating here .

The cocktails what can i say wow ... Usually in an all inclusive hotel they are lets say rubbish but not at magic life . They are lovely ! and 24/7

The private beach and gardens are amazing . They even have a beach party one a week with dj's .

The staff are lovely and work so hard , nothing is to much trouble . The shops are well stocked i bought some hibiscus and mint leafs from the tea shop which i enjoyed for a long period once i returned home.

I can not wait to go here again i loved it !

We're just back from a fantastic week a the Club Magic Sharm El Sheikh Imperial. Can't fault it at all! The food and drink was superb.

You have an ever changing range of buffet options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight snacks. Also had access to three restaurants which you need to book a day in advance. The buffet restaurant has theme nights such as mexican, asian, egyptian and others which rotate each evening based on a fortnightly basis. The food at each was simply superb - loved it and suffice to say we're needing to get back to the gym now we've returned!

The cocktail list was fantastic - best we've seen at an all inclusive and really generous measures. Nice wine and beer also available of course.

A bonus for me as a football fan was beIN Sports available in your room although just one option available across the whole resort. If you asked in the Eagles lounge they would put it on beIN Sports 11 which provides coverage in English.

Recommend leaving the resort and taking a walk along the beach and out on the jetty which belongs to the resort. You can do snorkelling if you fancy.

All in all it was a perfect break, magic resort, great food and drink and just the right temperature (mid 30s high in May). We hope to go back!

Room Tip: Wouldn't bother paying extra for sea view - didn't look like much from what we could tell...
