“Paradise”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

My Partner and I spent a 1 week stay at Sonesta Club Resort travelling with Thomas Cook from Birmingham the flight took about 5hrs 20mins.
On arriving in Egypt we found the airport was very confusing especially the queues for a visa which you need to fill in before you are allowed enter Egypt. After waiting for our luggage we made our way to our transfer which was a minibus before we could get our bags loaded onto the bus we had to pay a man 2 British pounds to put our bags on the bus roof. At Sonesta check in was very quick and a porter took us and our luggage to the room explaining the different bars & restaurant also the facilities on the way to our room which was very helpful. The room was lovely very large with a separate bathroom and wardrobe space. The aircon system worked very well and believe me in them temperatures (44+) you will need it. The room includes a free safe & fridge which is stocked with various drinks, be mindful anything you use from the fridge you will be charged for. There is a flat TV with some English channels. The bed is very large and softer than most other beds I have slept in on my travels. The balcony we had with our room was also large and facing the pool area & gardens. The cleaning was very good with clean towels daily and regular sheet changes. The pool areas are like a paradise they are kept very clean we spent most of our days by the pool and the tropical bar which we found to be the best bar there. There was snacks served during the day i.e. Pizza chips & salads at the pool bars also you could go to the main restaurant for lunch. There was a variety of foods on offer each day from different countries but the main menu consists of Pasta Rice & Salads which personally I don’t like. The meat dishes had lots of bones in them and never tasted like the meat you was eating. All the staff make you feel very welcome and are very friendly they can’t do enough for you the only problem I had with this hotel was the food as it was not to my likening but please don’t let that put you off as I am a very fussy eater. This hotel is very good value for money and we would go again if they improved the food.

Room Tip: Pool view by the tropical bar is best

where to start ... me and my boyfriend spent 2 weeks in the sonesta club and to be honest we cant fault our holiday. From the moment we arrived at the hotel, to our last day at check out the staff were very welcoming and couldnt fault their hospitality. We were delayed in arriving to the hotel and didnt arrive until late at night, they kept the restaurant open for us and had a small spread of food on offer and fresh bottled water .. which was well appriciated. The food in the restaurant, although was repeatitive, there was always something for everyone ... couldnt fault the waiters in there always helpful and always happy to see you .. especially our waiter beeder he always made our dinning experience fun :). We spent most of our days around the tropical pool, where the bar staff always knew your drink order before you could even ask and were always happy to see you. We always had fresh towels everyday .. thank you Mano especially :) and the rest of the workers in the towel huts. Our room was always clean and tidy with fresh towels and occasionaly some lovely towel art left by our cleaner ... thank you :) Freak Animation Team ... you were brilliant had us laughing all the time everyday .. DJ Adriano (im a be im a be im a im a ima im a be lol) loved your music all day and water zumba was always entertaining, clubbing was fun with you as well TOP MAN from Liverpool lol ... Ricky well well well how many more times would you like to be pushed in the pool whilst doing water zumba ?? haha you were the first to introduce yourself when we arrived and always helpful with everything, very funny bloke thanks for the laughs .... Andrea such a lovely girl, you were so fun to go clubbing with such a laugh :) ... all the animation team were brilliant always fun and something to do, 100% "all inclusive no worries" haha ... all in all brilliant holiday and can't fault the staff or hotel. The staff are constantly working around the hotel all day, everyday to keep their guests happy :) RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL 100% WOULD DEFFINATLY RETURN !!!

Nine of us (six children) spent 2 weeks at the Sonesta Club in August this year and everyone enjoyed the stay immensely. The staff were really great, helpful and always courteous and respectful and all of this with a smile. The accommodation was really good and the housekeeping excellent. The food was excellent with a lot of variety for both carnivores and vegans alike. The staff in the restaurant were brilliant, which included a few cheeky chaps who were really good for a laugh and a joke. All in all Mashallah (thank Allah), we had a really great time and would recommned this hotel to anyone. If we ever visit Egypt again, we will definitely Inshallah (Allah willing) return to the Sonesta Club. Many thanks to everyone at the hotel for making our holiday an extremely enjoyable one. Salaam to all.

Just returned from Egypt. Spent 3 nights Pyramids View inn in Giza and then booked a little package holiday with Soliman Travel in London...3 nights Sonesta Club, All inclusive and flights from Cairo to Sharm el Sheikh return..£275 pp. The hotel was very attractive with several pools but it was absolutely full of Russians and half the evening entertainment was in Russian! The air conditioned huge dining toom was like a school cafeteria but the range of dishes was extensive. It was nice to eat outside in peaceful surroundings. It was very good value for money and the rooms were really very nice. We had been advised that we could use the facilities of the sister Sonesta Beach Resort but this was not, in fact, true!! We were also advised we could use the beach bar and have lunchtime snacks there. There was a free shuttle bus and, after an hour's trip on a glass bottomed boat (passable!) we attempted to get a drink at the beach bar and were refused....being directed to a little hut/bar in a distant corner with no tables/chairs and the lunchtime snacks were a small plate of chips!! The place was packed out and not even worth the effort of going. Taher Madan did his best at the beach to keep us happy but we were glad to get back to the ministrations of Mohamed Adel our cocktail maker extraordinare.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms (100s, 200s 300s )are very nice and access on to the main swimming pools. It...
