Baron Resort Sharm El Sheikh

Reviewed 24 July 2009

My husband, two daughters (22 and 18) and I returned yesterday from a wonderful week at this hotel. From the minute we entered the hotel to the minute we left it we were really impressed though you'll notice we had some (very) minor quibbles.

First the good things. As many, many others have said the hotel is immaculately clean and the grounds are lovely. The staff are wonderful - in particular Omar who works in the poolside and Italian restaurants is the best waiter I have seen in many a year. There are many working in the world's finest establishments who could learn a lot from this friendly, humourous, courteous, very hard-working, totally professional young man. Similarly, Mohammed who works in the pool bar could give many a world-class cocktail barman a run for their money and he was hugely entertaining. Thank you to both of them - you really made this holiday one to remember. Also the manager of the Egyptian restaurant (I'm sorry I didn't catch his name) - once I showed an interest in the food being served he gave me a full explanation of the ingredients of the dishes and how to prepare them. His knowledge was stunning and all my family (not all of whom are as interested in cookery as I am) found him really interesting. Though those three were the shining stars, all staff were really friendly and tried really hard to help all the customers enjoy their time.

The beach and reef outside the hotel are stunning. I don't swim but could easily see (and photograph) dozens of amazing fish. My husband said that the snorkelling was great too, though the area at the end of the jetty could be very busy at points throughout the day and he did get a nasty reaction on his arm to something in the sea water (possibly jellyfish but we really don't know). No matter what time of day, there were plenty of beach beds all with room to get as much sun and/or shade as you liked.

The pool was beautiful and there were usually plenty of beds (often a difficulty when there are four of you - two sun lovers, two shade lovers). My only slight complaint was that, as a non-swimmer, there were limited ways to enter the pool especially when the resort got busier at the start of the school holidays and the younger children completely took over the obviously easy entrance to the pool. The other three loved the quieter, deeper end however. Ice-cold towels were handed around every day around noon. We were approached daily by several people wanting to sell their newspapers, spa treatments, watersports and beauty treatments. One of the men trying to sell the spa treatments did become tiresome, the rest (including others offering spa treatments) left you alone once you gave a a friendly but firm "No thanks". We didn't really use the sea water pool on the mezzanine so I can't comment on that.

The restaurants were all good - though being there on bed and breakfast we found the buffet restaurant - to which we were directed by staff at reception on our first night (unnecessarily we later found out) was very expensive.

There are a variety of bars all of which had their own special something. The pool bar had limited seating but Mohammed was there which made it worth visiting in the evening. The Billiard bar was fun - again largely down to the guy who worked there (and, again, sorry I don't remember his name). The Niche bar is very comfortable though sophisticated and we were served with beautiful cocktails though they were rather expensive. A minor complaint with the Niche bar (and the Lobby bar) is that they use coasters which are embroidered in the middle. They look very pretty but are not particularly useful for keeping a glass upright!

The rooms are about the best we've ever seen in a beachside resort. We had very young children in the rooms either side of ours and they were either the best behaved children in the world or the soundproofing was as perfect as it is possible to get. The airconditioning in the "oldies" (ie mine and my husband's room) was good. It was not so good in our daughters' room and they had to sleep with the fan on which disturbed them often throughout the nights (they didn't tell us that until the end of the holiday so we don't know how the hotel staff would have reacted had we told them). There was a nice seating area in each room. Somewhat limited choice of TV channels but we weren't there to watch TV - a good film channel might have been nice though.

All told, we would definitely consider the Baron Resort if we were to go to Sharm el Sheikh again - and I strongly suspect we will.

Just a final word on what people have been saying about the "swine flu" testing. We flew into Sharm el Sheikh airport. We had to fill in a form stating where we were staying etc. but we were not knowingly tested for body temperature.

Just noticed comment about the Egyptian Health authorities using ear termometers when you enter the country. They may be using camera imaging now but when we went to Taba in May we were greeted with unsterelised thermometers in our ears. This may have changed nowl but thought I had better just mention this as another poster said this is not the case.

We have just got back from the Baron Resort and can honestly say that we have never stayed at an hotel before where you feel so welcome and special.

As said many times before, the hotel is so clean, the staff never stop, including the gardeners.

The views of Tiran Island from our rooms were breathtaking, couldnt have asked for any better.

Thank you to Waleed at the pool who looked after us so well. We looked forward to the ice-cold face towels fragranced with essential oils in the mornings and in the afternoons the ice-cold water spray with jasmine oil - heaven. Waleed, thank you, we will be back!!

The bar staff in the pool bar and hotel lobby were brilliant too, no matter how busy they were they still took the time to speak to you, day or night. Omer, thank you, you are a star.

Also the staff in the Sinai Restaurant, all fantastic. The food was of high standard and we always found something that we liked. The Egyptian Restaurant is very good, as is the Italian. It doesnt matter where you go, you are looked after.

Both the Area manager and hotel manager are always around and stop and speak to you and ask if everything is okay.

We have stayed at many all inclusive hotels before but have to stay this has to be the best yet. Well done to all the staff at the Baron Resort and thank you once again for making our holiday so special.

we have never ever visited a hotel like the baron resort in our lives! it is just out of this world! the staff wow just brilliant! they just can not do enough for you, the bar staff which was Omar, A.Allah, Rammy just a few to name they were just brilliant you ordered your drinks at the bar and they would bring them over to you no matter how close you were sat to the bar!
cleaning was always going on cleaning all the brass on the staircases, polishing the floors, sweeping, gardening ect. the rooms were really spacious with even table and chairs to sit in the room which was great for when you were having a drink and playing cards ect.
the pool area was brilliant loads and loads of space with plenty of beds, there was no rush and no getting up at 6am to put towels out which was great! you could still get a sunbed at 3 in the afternoon with loads of choice!
you are right of the beach front which was fab with a lovely beach bar serving beer cocktails, soft drinks, water.
the sea was out of this world, it was just like opening a book with the amount of coral and sea life! it was just amazing, this was the 1st time i had snorkeled and i bet nothing will compare to the red sea! my boyfriend has been to spain to greece and he said that is nothing compaired to the sea life in egpyt.
sharks bay was a lovely beach to go to beware you do need to pay 25 egypt pounds(which is £2.50) to go on it which includes a sunbed.
the food was lovely, different cultures every night, the breakfast was the same everyday but i was happy with just toast or something.
overall our holiday was just fantastic and i would recommend this hotel to anyone, couples, familys with children or people travelling on your own.
we can not wait to go back in the future!

Well where do I start, apart from saying we had a superb time here at this wonderful hotel for my Hubby's 40th Birthday. This hotel is the cleanest and friendliest ive ever been too - I couldn't believe the toilets I had to take photo's of them for proof as they were so clean I could of put my bed in there and slept there. I cant thank the Staff enough for the service they gave, they were outstanding.

The food was great too, everything to please everyone, Mmmm and the sweets were just the best.....

Can I just say a big hello to all the staff and management and a very big Thankyou for making our stay the best....

We will definately be returning to this Fab Hotel......
