“we will come back again”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We been there week ago and thinking about this wonderful plaice every day.Nice location 10 min from airport,a front of Soho square were we found everything from ice rink and ice bar to the evening show and activities for kids(music,dancing)its popular areas for tourists. Front desk guy Ahmad meet us with welcoming smile help us about our room (we want 2 floor and he changed for us)Also very polite Kassim booked our room when we need 1 more day to stay.Nothing is problem for the staff there,repairs required are done fast from phone calls.Thank you guys and thanks for management of Island view.Animation team working very hard,very talented there leader Mido doing fire and fakir show teaching oriental dance on the beach,Charlene,i never miss her latino between snorkeling with my son.Sea is wonderful,many corals and fishes even last day of staying i record during snorkeling 3 m long moray.Food was excellent and plenty of choice,even our russian kind.I speak arabic and its help me there(how they treat you).,but all the staff spoke some russian and some english.My kids and mom also were sooo happy in Island view.Thanks for all shefs of al la carte restorans.Take with you medicine from mosquitoes and against sun cream and go to this friendly place,we miss it toooo much.

The Five Stars Animation Team at Island View Resort, Sharm El Sheikh.were fantastic. They made our stay there very entertaining. We're even thinking about going back because it was so good. Special thanks to Cash, Charlene, Mido and Vicky for the great stay!

This is my sixth visit to the island view and I still do not understand why English travel agents don't promote it in holiday brochures.
The staff are amongst the most welcoming people you are likely to meet.
The location is superb, on the beach and close to other popular tourist area's.
I would like mention a few of the staff that go beyond whats required to help you enjoy your stay. Mohamed pool 1 barman, Amr pool 4 barman, hazem restaurant manager, Osama ( always has a smile) saied main restaurant waiter. Alaa and siayed italian.
The animation team work really hard to keep the younger visitors happy with there games & fun and still manage to accompany guests to the local nightlife.
It would be bad if I didn't mention the Russian visitors. They are mostly ok but the occasional rude/ignorant ones spoil it.
Please encourage the UK travel agents to get on board.

Fantastic resort in Sharks Bay with own beach. Great food and very attentive, friendly staff. Rooms are a little dated and the tv reception was poor but these are minor negative points on a superb value for money resort.

Room Tip: If you have a late flight on the day of checkout ask reception for complimentary lunch and drink vou...

The place was great, really clean and organized. the rooms were spacious, the building isn't that new but well maintained. The service and the quality of food were the best part of our stay. We booked all inclusive and I have to say it's really worth every penny and more. The quality of food was great. The service is the best. whether its the restaurant chefs or the pool life guard or room service and housekeeping, they were so mazing, helpful and quick. The pool life guard "Mustafa" is a great person with a huge welcoming smile, he was there every day the minute we got to the pool to make sure we have what we need from shezlongs and beach umbrella, that he adjusts to make sure everything is in the shade, and one day one umbrella wasn't enough so he grabbed 2 umbrellas. when you get there look for him at the north pool, close to the lobby and restaurant area and he will certainly take care of you. it's a resort I would totally go back to.

Room Tip: People usually look for sea view but I would say having your room close to the north pool is much b...

Beautiful hotel but what really made the holiday was the animation team, always smiling!
The rooms were very dated however nobody really spends slot of time in the rooms on holiday ! Gardens were kept very well and pool staff worked hard to not only watch out but entertain as well.

I found the hotel very nice and friendly. The hotel also exceeded in many ways, one being the friendly rep's -Vicky, Charlene, Dee(from island gardens), Dennis and DJ kash. The entire animation team was absolutely amazing! The overall holiday was excellent. The staff were also very good, Adel omelette man, Musafa the pancake man and Mohammed the pasta man were all lovey and made excellent food! The life guard Ali was also brilliant. As well as Whalid the pool bar 1 was also extremely nice. The combination of both animation and staff made the holiday very enjoyable.
