Me and my partner went for a week here and it was a nice relaxing holiday.
If your looking to go Egypt and never been before then this holiday is good.

Staff - very very nice, very helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them.

Rooms - very clean and spacious but beds are very firm,not my sort of bed but some people like a hard mattress, it did hurt my bed though. The air con is great, works so well.

The whole hotel is very clean 24/7, never saw any rubbish etc.

Animation team work very hard.

We booked and had a massage on the first day, DO NOT do this. the man then comes round and sells the same thing for about £25 cheaper. Massage was very nice though and worth it.

I wouldnt come back again because there is nothing around the hotel and we like to go out and not get hassled by the men. But thank you for a lovely holiday

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1254, this was a very long walk to and from the restaurant etc. But it has the bes...

Just got back after two weeks and have to comment on the very helpfull and friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble from the restaurant to the bar,pool and rooms. Big thanks to head chef Tarik for taking the time and effort to talk to patrons about food choice quality etc and for doing us a special meal. Even got a birthday cake and singing waiters! Rooms ok showing a little wear and tear.Bit disapointed with beach which was quoted as being private and only 300m away(no where near) in First choice brochure, but across a busy rd and through sister hotel sonesta beach making it their 300m private beach! Didnt miss too much though water not as good quality as sharks bay area and sunbeds are packed in real tight with the beach bar looking rather tatty compared to those all around from other hotels. Last little gripe would be the drone of aircraft over the hotel complex as it seems we were on the take off flight path for all planes leaving Sharm. Did I enjoy the break yes would I got back , probably if only for the attentive staff.

We have just got back from the Sonesta Club and we found the hotel really great there was 6 people in our party and we are all over 50 and from Essex. We would like to say a very BIG thank you to Rikki mc who is in charge of the Animation team and is great at his job which you can see he loves and enjoys, he made us feel very welcome and so did Frederico. And also the other people we would like to thank for a great holidays in the restaurant Ali Fahty and Tarek, Mohamed (jog on at the beach bar ), in the Dolphin bar Khalid, Ali Hassan ( fat coke ), Tito who does hair and nails and last of all Micky blue eyes for the great boat trip. All in all every one was so friendly and we would all gone back there.

This is the first review I have written so please bear with. I have been going to Sharm at least 2 times a years for the last 7 years and I have tried other hotels (too many to list). But Sonesta Club is the one for me as I can say blah blah blah but ill keep to the little things that set it apart from the rest. My kids don’t want to go anywhere else. The mother does not want to go anywhere else. The staff is very professional as in these hot countries you can get a “slap dash” attitude, which is not good. Some examples of Sonesta that set it apart from the other hotels. Pools being cleaned 3AM. Gardens tended to from 5 am, Staff meetings I saw daily, Fumigated for Mosquitos daily (A man goes round with a smoke machine or something) the whole hotel! Food (piping hot stuff always being brought out) The restaurant manager was alerted and got offended as they had not seen me for a few days and wanted to know what was wrong as he thought it was the food. I told him I was busy Diving etc and was out all day. He took it personally and I could see it was upsetting to him but I assured him it was fine. He made me a steak to make up for the lost time? I don’t know what he was on about but the steak was better than most restaurants in England!!! Made exactly how I liked it! Soft and juicy and burnt! Well chuffed. They asked for feedback as well (on how to improve restaurant) which surprised me also. So food is more than adequate. The Dj Adriano is the best I have heard in sharm as he takes his job seriously as well and he was not there a few times and this upset me as he plays music for everybody and is just a quality dude. The Animation Team is good and pulls of some very tasty shows as I’ve seen some rubbish in the past believe me. With the Dj who is the icing on the cake as they wok hard and party harder and make sure all the guests have a good time. The names that stand out for me because I would go to a hotel if they where there are: DJ Adriano, Teddy, Mina, lupa and Fabiano (2011 team) I would pay money to see these guys unbelievably talented the best I’ve ever seen! Only negative thing is I don’t know why the hotel got rid of them??????? Puzzles me.
The next generation that stand out.
2012 team.
Ricardo Manager (young very talented professional) the only downside he is a MANC!!!!! (joke) speaks 4 languages fluent and a tidy master of ceremonies and smooth.
Frederico (Italian pretty boy) Good heart and positive energy very friendly and helpful.
The rest of the team are good as well.
BUT WHERE IS ADRIANO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He puts it all together I missed him and wherever he goes I will be but I hope it is sonesta.
Rude Russians? Well don’t go to Egypt as they will be there but it’s the culture so don’t take it personally if they push in etc or are rude. “When in Rome…..” Nuff said.
Flies? Take precautions the hotel do their part and maybe don’t go in mosquito season. Lastly the ones that bring it all together are the reception staff I must mention “Mr Hamid” (who the children love) He always is on hand and knows the people that go back by name and knows all his staff he make our holiday whatever happens when we go there. I must mention his understudy Kamel as well both very professional and caring and do their job with pride and honor. Basically waste you money going to a cheap hotel and get food poisoning. Or you can go to Hilton etc. and take a chance as its more money. So its what you make it but with Sonesta it’s the best hotel overall I’ve every been to so if you go somewhere else you must be incredibly rich, very stupid, or from another planet.
Don’t take chances I don’t even know about their sister club as I’m sticking to what I know. AND PLEASE GET the DJ BACK!
Mr Hamid you are number one hotel reception manager always sorting out my queries this hotel is for couples, singles, families, old people, everybody.

Reviewed 30 September 2012

We went to the sonesta club for our honeymoon, having never been to Egypt before i didnt know what to expect, when we arrived at the hotel the staff checked us in quickly and then took us to our room--the hotel grounds was bigger than i expected and very clean.

The room was fab, very big with a big double bed and spacious bathroom, really lovely.

There are 7 pools in sonesta club so you have a choice of kids pool/slides or the quieter ones,we always used the pool opposite the Tropical bar because it was near our room and the staff at the Tropical bar were fab-mainly Mohammed and Ramy.They work so hard and used to bring us a drink every half hour whilst we just led by the pool.

Food atthe hotel not bad, always found something to eat , i was gutted no bacon at breakfast but you have to respect their religion,plenty of fruit,toast,cereal,eggs and a chef making fresh omlettes every morning.

Always salad,pasta,and a few meats to choose from,mainly beef and chicken.
Chef Tarek very good,spoke to us and cooked us a special meal two nights in a row-nothing too much trouble.

Entertainment team-water aerobics /football through day, got a bit same old after the first week ,would have been better if sings were different! i am quite happy to sunbathe though, although was in the pool mostly as so hot !
The entertainment in the night wasnt good-only downfall of this hotel, needs some good english entertainment.
If you are happy to just have a few drinks and chill then the Tropical bar is good to do it in-Dolphin bar bit more lively but all the RUDE russians seem to use this bar.

Lovely hotel-better than sonesta beach i think! I would go back to this hotel but only for a week not two as Egypt not for me as not enough going on outside the hotels, unless you go into naama bay which was in your face and expensive!
