Just got back from my second holiday in this hotel. Marvellous! The food is good, the staff are friendly and generate a home from home atmosphere. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Lovely rooms and pools. Will definitely book at this hotel whenever I return to Sharm (hopefully next year). Thanks guys. That scuba diving woman.

First of all, i would just like to start by saying that i have visited this hotel up to 8 times. I genuinley dont understand where all of the bad reviews are coming from!!

FOOD
_______
From the first time i visited the hotel in 2010, i have seen massive improvements. Mainly the food!! In 2010 i barely ate anything however, i did not starve as their was always fresh fruit and pasta. However now, i have found that their is a much wider range of choice. Varying from freshly cut chicken and beef, to freshly sauteed vegetables. I have also noticed that the chefs make an excellent beef chilli con carne and lasagne!!

For those of you who have children, please note that they will never starve!! The hotel have now started catering for us English, so you will find that on Lunch times their is often chips, burgers and hotdogs. Along with fresh fruit and tasty desserts.

ROOMS
_______

As i have visited sharm holiday up to 8 times, i have stayed in a number of different rooms. I must admit that all of them have been very good, spacious and up to my standards. Each time, i have been greeted in to my room with my mini fridge stocked up with water, cola, and fresh juice, along with a fresh fruit basket!!
Recently on my return visit, i was greeted in to my hotel room by the poolside with ''WELCOME BACK'' written on my bed, scattered by lovely flower petals. So sweet!!

I have had a number of cleaners on my visits, and each and every one of them have been genuinley lovely. Leaving my rooms spotless every day. With fresh towels always left in a great animal shape, and everything that i need.
There were times where I didnt wake up till later (due to too many drinks i presume lol) and my cleaners always were understanding and told me that they would come back to clean my room later. And they were true to their word. So well done to all of the cleaners. You do a great job!!

STAFF
_______

What can i say, every single staff member really cant do enough for you. If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask any staff member and they will do their best to answer you, or if they fail to do so, they will get someone else to answer it for you.

A HUGE WELL DONE TO ALL STAFF AT SHARM HOLIDAY RESORT!!

FACILITIES
__________

All the facilities at sharm holiday are suitable and acceptable for everyone. I do not have any complaints, however the Wifi sometimes does play up!!

All in all, sharm holiday is an excellent hotel. I would definitley recommend it to everyone. :-)

Room Tip: Rooms on the bottom floors are useful and a lot easier to access the pool areas!

3rd time to Sharm, 2nd time visiting this hotel.

For the obvious reason I chose this hotel again because I loved it. My first visit was with a group of university friends back in June 2011, and most recent visit was March 2014 with my partner.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in Sharm Holiday Resort. For the price paid for this hotel and for the level of service provided we were very happy for our choice.
Rooms were cleaned daily, we were always greeted around the hotel & restaurant, bar staff are friendly, room service is immediate.

One of the main reasons why this is my second visit to this hotel is because they are one of the few hotels in Naama Bay that has 2 private beaches- the Wind Beach in Naama Bay & most importantly it's private beach stretch in Hadaba Beach. Not many hotels provide access to Hadaba beach. Most hotels have access to Naama Bay beach which isn't fantastic for Marine life. Hadaba beach is fantastic for snorkelling!
The second reason is because the hotel itself is massive- 2x swimming pools, one of which has a pool bar etc. For the price paid for this hotel, you could easily be mistaken to pay the same price for another but much smaller hotel which could disappoint you.

Food- I found the food provided was much better during first visit in June 2011. There was much more variety then including the fruits section. During this recent visit, there wasn't much variety on offer but you can understand this as it was not peak season. However, food provided was great and enjoyable.

Would I visit this hotel again? No.
Why- because I have visited this hotel twice and love it. I feel it's time to try another hotel now but I would definitely return again in the distant future.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

I have spent 1 week in sharm holiday.
It is not luxury hotel, but not pure.
Reception:
24 hour reception, they are always ready serve you, answer on every single question.
They speak English, but if you prefer Russian - there is Guest relation manager (Russian boy Sasha, he's good!!!) who is always in the hotel & solve problems or technical problems (with safe, tv, or rooms amenities), they are good.

Security:
Everything is absolutely safe!
no one can visit you without security check.
Forbidden to visit guest in their rooms, only at reception.

Room:
Normal, daily housekeeping, & HK works good.
There is no mini bar in the room, but anyway you do not need, because majority of hotels in sharm are all inclusive.
The minus is that shower is not removable, rest is normal.

Beach:
This hotel has 2 beaches. 1 is in the center, on naama bay, the second one in Hadaba (with coral riff ), the main adornment of this hotel is a beach.
The are 2 buses to the beach & from, it goes in every 30 minutes, till central beach you may get by foot as well, because hotel is in the center, 10 minutes walking distance.

P.S.
The main reason to go to Sharm el sheikh (to my mind ) is excursions, you will be offered by the company which is organizing the whole package, for example I had Pegas Turistic, but their prices are too high, but, no worries
You may find lots of travel offices in the center, & the service is better & prices.... about $100 different for example Cairo exursion.
Thank you for nice holiday :)

We have just returned from our 4th visit to this hotel and again have had a wonderful holiday. Having been to Sharm 8 times now we can safely say that this hotel is our favourite for many reasons. The location is great, neither too close or too far away from Naama Bay. The hotel has had some upgrades since our last visit and these have definitely been for the better. Our room was fabulous with a huge bed, new air conditioning and poolside location. We also noticed a massive improvement with the showers which previously ran a little cold on occasions. Not any more, the shower was powerful and hot every time and at any time of the day. There are new TVs in the rooms with enough channels to find something worth watching during the in between times and the hotel provides free buses to the beaches throughout the day. There is also a pharmacy and doctor on site which is useful.

Having been elsewhere we like the layout of this complex. There are 2 pools, the bottom being a quieter one without music and the top one being much bigger where the animations take place. This is adjacent to the main terrace and restaurant but whichever you choose to use access to all the facilities is easy to navigate from either.

What makes this hotel so special though is their staff, obviously picked with great care and a great asset. They are friendly, polite, thoughtful and very professional. Our thanks to Essam for cooking his fresh pasta that we so enjoy, Mahmoud on reception for helping when hubby got ill after arrival, Mahmoud and Wael in the bars for their excellent service and delightful jokey ways, Sacha in guest relations for always making time to talk to us, Barbara and Gina from the animations team for not taking offence when we stubbornly refused to budge off our loungers and participate in the games! Ahmed in the bottom pool bar for his fabulous coffee making and waitressing, the other Ahmed for cleaning our room so well and finally Mostafa who persisted diligently with his english lessons making us smile as we passed by him everyday to and from our room. It was lovely to see the older faces again and a pleasure to meet the new ones.

One last mention for the food. It was excellent. There was less choice than before but we preferred this because everything was fresher, easier to keep freshly stocked and we tried things we might have avoided only to find it was delicious. Again, all the chefs and restaurant staff were brilliant.

So in a nutshell we could not have wished for a better holiday and can only give this resort the highest recommendation. Thank you again and we will see you soon when we return.

Room Tip: If you want peace and quiet ask for a room by the lower pool

Lovely hotel,our room 3100, absolutely fab,except no bath. We were only there for a week so it wasn't worth changing . Food in al a cartes restaurant s very good,although they do charge for some dishes,for example steak,prawns,salmon. Buffet resurant,La veranda,very poor. Breakfast no scrambled eggs ! Juice was disgusting unless you paid 2euro for fresh orange juice. Danish pastries and crossaints were stunning ! lunch and evening buffet very poor choice,salads,mains and deserts. What they had was cooked well,just no choice,unless you liked fish. Which I do but only 1 meat dish,alot of veal and liver ! Very pretty hotel grounds but there are a lot of steps,although you can order a buggy down to the bottom pools and restaurants. The staff will do anything for you,they are brilliant . Tea time3 til 5 fresh crepes ,in the pizza restaurant . This was a must every day ! The ice cream,was help yourself,chocolate ,mango,vanilla or strawberry. Good quality and very tasty ! And my friend knows her ice cream !!!!!!. Would go back just for the location ,beautiful xxxx

Thank you for your review.

However I think you have posted it for the wrong hotel. The restaurant names you use are not ours. We only have one buffet restaurant, and there are no dishes which are charged extra for, it is all inclusive.
