This has to be on of the best value-for-money hotels I have stayed at. Let's get the negatives out of the way - it's right by the airport runway however other than the odd bit if aircraft noise, you hardly notice it (honestly). When I stayed in Nabq Bay in 2011, the aircraft were flying over the hotel - Sierra Sharm is not on any flightpath and there are no evening flights. The dress code in the restaurant is strict in the evening and we met with Denise e in Birmingham whose husband and her received mixed communication from the hotel staff regarding footwear. Best to wear trousers and not show toes (gentlemen) as they are trying to give a "fine-dining" feel to the restaurant and to be fair it is a 4-star hotel (Egypt rated 5-start but I would say it's a good 4-star).

Plenty of pools arounf the hotel grounds for all travellers i.e. relaxing pool, main pool, kids pools, so everything for everyone. Restaurant food is excellent with plenty of variety with cereals, pastries, continental breakfast (cold meats, cheeses etc), sausages, bacon, beans and the egg station cooking omellettes and fried eggs fresh.

Lunch and Dinner varies each day with the egg station converting to a pasta station with pasta being cooked fresh in front of you plus a salad bars, dessert station and plenty of fresh bread and fruit.

As the hotel was All-Inclusive, there were also a snack bar and pizza station around the main pool (afternoons between 1-5pm) plus free-ice creams (Cornettos) between 3-5pm.

Hotel also had a Spa with well-quipped modern gym. Premium all-inclusive guests were given a book of coupons giving 1 free 15-minute massage, 2 x 1-hour sauna, steam room and jacuzzi sessions, 1 game of 10-pin bowling, plus a cinema vouchere for a free 45-minute film on the history of Egypt (more interesting than it sounds).

The real bonus was Soho Square which was right at the back of the hotel which had a British pub, marble-paved streets with a parade of tatesful shops which comes alive in the evning with the Fontana Bar being the focal point and live entertainment taking place every night.

2 x pharmacy's and Supermarkets within 500 yard walk from the back of the hotel on Soho Square.

The Queen Vic pub, Akuna Matata restaurant and Fontana Bar were all included in our Premium All-Inclusive package which meant we weren't tied to the hotel - there were also Indian, Chinese, and Itlaina restaurants which were extra.

Busses run every 30 minutes to the beach at Sharks Bay where there is also a beach bar serving drinks and snacks FREE as part of the all-inclusive package.

Would certainly recommend family rooms (2518-2521) overlooking Mini-golf course.

Excellent hotel - would definitely return..but remember your trousers and shoes in the restaurant in the evebing.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at sierra in August, my first visit to Egypt after being many different countries on holiday. On arrival to the hotel we were greeted straight away with excellent service from concierge especially Eid who is a total diamond. By far the most nicest and genuine person. We were given refreshing drinks and cold cloths at reception which was lovely after travelling.. Our room was lovely and clean. We had a garden view which good but next time we go would love a pool view. (we will be going back) there was everything you needed in your room and vwry cleanwe was very happy, the maid was brilliant and very friendly like all the staff. The food in the hotel was Not brilliant, there was lack of choice and they have themed nights like English, Russian, international ect. However there wasn't a huge variety. The puddings though we're lush.. They had lots of choice of different cakes and the profiteroles highly recommended. It was great that in soho square your wrist bands got you free food and drinks in Akuna mata, cafe chino, and free drinks in queen vic and Fontana bar. Which were all brilliant. Most other places you recieve 35% off. Highly recommend, the Indian and the Italian at the savoy. The choice of 7 pools is great and again all bar pool staff and life guards are so helpful and friendly. The hotel was an enjoyable place to stay except there could be better animation who could appeal more to English as they were Italian. Would defanitly recommend the excursions and to book with Ramey who is brill guy and genuinely cares about giving tourist the best price of experiencing the best of Egypt. The friendliness and safety of the hotel really made our experience
Enjoyable and cant thank the staff enough for being so nice. Even when my boyfriend got the dreaded bug. ( which most people get and you can get tablets from the pharmacy as immodium or buscopan don't work) receprion rang the pharmacy for us to let them know we were coming and guest relations rang the next day to ensure he was ok and Id he needed a doctor or anything further. Anything I haven't covered and you would like to know feel free to ask.

Dear our valuable guest,
Firstly we would like to thank you for choosing our hotel in your last visit and hope that you enjoyed our stay with us, and we would to thank you as well for taking time to post your comment. Concerning the food, we would like to confirm that at the Sierra we serve a wide variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every day there is a selection of meat such as beef or veal, a chicken and fish/seafood. There is a selection of rice, potatoes and freshly cooked pasta as a side dish. In addition to this there is a wide selection of salads, bread and desserts. Each evening in the restaurant there is a different theme such as Oriental, English, Italian, international and a BBQ night. We try to cater for all food tastes and nationalities (British/Russian/Italians/Dutch/Arab/Ukrainian etc.). Moreover, we provide a free dinner as per the premium all inclusive at Akuna Matata which is including several cuisines like: Pizza, Chinese noodles, BBQ, local food, international and sea food. Furthermore Café Chino (Lebanese Restaurant) is also included for evening meal. We heard a lot of positive comments on both Restaurants. Akuna Matata and Café Chino are located at the Soho Square and we believe that there are not many hotels that provide the same offer when you may dine outside the hotel and it is included in your concept. Also we trust that this brings the variety to our guests. Should the guests were not satisfied even with this selection, we also can make special meals from the buffet items had the guests reported this to us whilst in house. However we will look at your valuable review for more developments, regarding to the animation performance will look at by increasing their activities during the day and evening to cater all in house nationalities, all Sierra team will be more than happy to welcoming you again in our sunny resort and to show you that our service is in progress always.

Hello. My husband and I went to the Sierra for our honeymoon and although we had a lovely time it wasnt great.
The staff were mostly friendly and curtious. The two that stood out were thebar man for the Oasis pool, Sam, he really made it worth it and the lady who greeted us for our meal.
Our room was fine and clean. Wasnt anything magical but wasnt anything to overly complain about.
The food is very boring and samey. We ate out 3 times at the resturaunts in Soho Sq (you get 35% off) and the food there was stunning. In the end I just felt like I had eaten the same thing repeatedly.
The drinks were very limited in the all inclusive package. 4 cocktails and 1 beer. No cider at all. By the end it got a little boring.
We went on a few trips out and booked with the tour guide based in the Sierra. This was a big mistake. We went on the glass bottom boat which was a fantastic experience but going with him made us feel like second rate citizens and like it was a dodgy deal. Then he took us to the old market and we ended up in his friends shop who pressure sold us things and really upset us. I wanted to get the next flight out after that and my husband was so annoyed we didnt feel brave enough to just stand up to them and walk out.
The last trip we took was quad biking. It was awesome. I really enjoyed it but be warned. There are lots of children in the dessert who chuck bracelets at you screaming present and then when they have done a lap of the group come back and demand money for the things on the ground they just threw at you.
I think the thing that didnt help was the fact that the hotel was hosting for a kiss fm party and it was chocker with 18 - 24 year old fighting and partying everyday 24 hours a day. Was unbearable and lots of other people in the hotel really felt put off by it. As my husband and I are young we were given the same disrepectful treatment even though we had no connection to them at all.
All in all...not great...not terrible.

We stayed @ the Sierra Hotel @ the end of June for 10 days, it was our first time to Egypt, what can I say it was amazing! Not far from the airport about 10 mins but you can't really hear the planes at all only for about 30 seconds when they 1st take off. The staff we very friendly and helpfull espcially Daniel our cleaner, all of the hotel was keep immaculate could not fault the cleaniness at all. There was plenty of food choice @ breakfast, dinner and tea with different theames everynight of the week with fresh food been cooked. Throughout the day you can help yourself to pizza and chicken sandwiches then later on ice cream. The location of the hotel is ideal 5 mins from the beach where the snorkelling is amazing you can catch the regular bus that goes and soho square for the night entertainment and the queen vic where you also can get free drinks. We travelled as a couple and if you want a relaxing place that has everything then this is certainly the place you never get bored. We had such a good time we have booked to go back for our honeymoon next year!

After many hours of searching for a good all inclusive Hotel in a good safe place (two teenage girls in tow) we settled on Eygpt -------Big mistake. This hotel is ideally placed for a short transfere from the airport, it has a great layout pools of all sizes, rooms very well laid out,good gym and spa, staff very friendly, beach 5 minutes away, bus if feeling lazy, food 7out of 10. But as we found out very little night time entertainment.Soho square good for killing a few hours with adaquate shows (repeated every three nights) So generally a good place for a break if you like doing nothing or like diving.

Bad points airport staff have got to be from another planet when it comes to manners, helpfulness and timekeeping. After a 5/6 hour flight the last thing we wanted was to wait 40 minutes for someone to man the passport control and then only open one lane. On return flight we were told to start boarding,so we proceeded to the gate, 40 people of all ages then stood for 20 minutes in 50 plus temp waiting for driver to take the bus to the plane. i asked staff how long we would be kept waiting and was told the driver was on his way. Well guess what the driver was sitting on the wall in the shade 20 feet away and when he finally decided to drive the bus he gave us the look of what a shame.
One last point dont ever go for a night out in "Old Sharm Town" what a dump shops full of tat and locals that seemed not to have seen a woman in twenty years.. Eygpt you can say we willnot be returning

Room Tip: Ask for one of rooms by spa as we were rooms by pool cost more and we learnt were very noisy

Been back from the Sierra a week now and miss it terribly was a lovely holiday! Hotel facilities excellent, rooms were very spacious and the beds one of the comfortablest beds ive ever slept in. The food had plenty of variety and having the advantage of eating at the Akuna Matada in Soho square was brilliant we went there every other night and the food was fab and the drinks service was superb thanks to Mohamad Ali and our friendly Chef!! The weather was so hot!! having a swim up bar was lovely especially in the afternoon to cool down.

The location of the hotel is great as you have plenty of shops to look around and several bars to visit and they have many restaurants you can dine out at, mind there are a little on the expensive side, around £110 for a family of 4 2 course and one drink. The egytian people are
some of the friendliest people we have met and would we return definately to egypt I just can't fault it.

Watch out for the mosquitos mind, advisable to take plenty of repeliant with you!!!!!
