Domina Hotel & Resort Harem
Ranked #32 of 231 Hotels in Sharm El Sheikh
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Me and my boyfriend went to stay at domina harem for two weeks mid July this year. We booked to stay in a junior suite and paid for all inclusive.
The resort is absolutely huge and consists of 7 hotels. There is a little bus service with many different routes called the taf tafs that pick you up and take you around the resort wherever you want to go , they are great and the drivers are so friendly !
Upon arrival to the harem hotel we were greeted at reception and told we could go to the restaurant for some food if we wanted whilst they prepared our paperwork and room.
We were taken to our room on a club car it wasn't far from reception but this was useful with the cases. The room was absolutely beautiful we had 2 bathrooms and two lots of wardrobes, a lovely sitting area, a jacuzzi bath and a lovely large four poster bed upstairs. Unfortunately The bed wasn't that comfy and made a lot of noise with every move. The balcony was also very pretty with soft furnishings making it a lovely place to relax at night.
When the staff explained to us our all inclusive deal I then understood the previous reviews
left on here about it not quite being all inclusive.
We were only allowed to eat all inclusive (for free) at the two buffet restaurants one near the room (spices) and the other one which was on the other side of resort (el wadi) and drink at the 2 all inclusive bars yet there are many more restaurants available to eat at but if we chose them we had to pay however were given a discount.we were also restricted with our beaches and pools.
The beach was just a five minute walk down the hill and you are supplied with towels!!
The food in our restaurant (spices) was ok but not amazing. We always managed to eat a decent meal but sometimes felt it could be repeated regularly and also not much catering for the English.
There were a lot of Russians in this hotel , the fact that the harem bar is the only 24hr bar on the resort made me wonder if this was why they were all here. They are very rude so be warned!!
Half way through our first week we made the decision to upgrade to another hotel in the resort called prestige. We upgraded our package which meant we could eat at all of the a la carte restaurants at lunch time and dinner time , have access to a private beach, private club car service, access to the spa and gym, access to salt lake , access to any beach and any pool. All we had to pay for was drinks and we got a 30% discount on the total.
To upgrade we spoke to samy at harem reception who was fantastic he told us all about our upgrade and arranged for us to go and have a look at our new hotel before we made our decision. He was very helpful and friendly and answered all of our questions that we had.
Overall staying at harem was pleasant but there were some aspects that made me feel like I wasn't in a five star hotel. The room was fantastic I was actually quite sad to leave it, the pool was ok lots of kids though! The food was ok.
The service from the staff however was outstanding. They were always more than happy to assist you with anything and nothing was too much trouble. Room service/cleaning was also very good.
Despite everything I probably Would return to harem again as I would know what to expect next time.I'd say this hotel is more like 4 star. However we still thoroughly enjoyed our first week at harem :)

Room Tip: Block 61 is where the junior suites are !! They are beautiful !!

I was worried based on other reviews read on here before my all inclusive trip this July 2014 with my 4 year old daughter.
I stayed at Domina Coral Bay Harem resort for 10 nights all inclusive.
The hotel was beautiful and very clean, fresh towels and bedding daily. The food was served in the 'Spices' restaurant. Breakfast was great and the food was generally very nice and loads of choice- defo reccomend the pasta station. The hotel bar was 24 hours and part of all inclusive but you wouldn't want to sit there for any length of time as It literally is just in reception. The pool bar shut around 4:30pm as we found most did (sundown)
We were able to eat at other restaurants on the complex with a 30% discount as you couldn't eat 3 times a day at spices - it got a bit samey despite the large selection.
We were able to get around the complex on they 'taf tafs' these run very frequently and we found them great especially with 2 young children.
The only downside were the other guests. Very rude and miserable. But we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Also none of the all inclusive bars had any entertainment, you had to pay for your drinks in the mosaic bar and the arena and they were the only two with any entertainment on. The arena had some particularly good shows on.

We booked Domina Coral Bay Harem Hotel for July 2014. We were offered a half-price room upgrade to Kings Salt Lake on arrival. Not having stayed here before, we didn't know what to expect but the proximity of the upgrade to the shops, the beach and the private salt lake with 'proper' beach swung it for us and it turned out to be a great move. The upgrade also gave us a free golf-cart service for getting around the resort by an easy phone call to the reception.

The Domina Site is huge and actually several hotels clustered together with some common services which you share and some private services which are either not available to the other hotel clients or at extra cost. Harem is at the 'top' of the Site, furthest from the sea but has its own pool and the free internal 'taf-taf' bus service is easy and excellent for getting around. The accompanying 'Spices' restaurant is very smart and friendly. We also used the Coral restaurant which is nearest to Kings Salt Lake which is a bit more cafeteria-style but still great food. Plenty of choice in both restaurants and excellent quality.

On arrival and throughout the stay, the reception staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and happy to help out if we needed to know anything or needed any help (yes, we managed to lock ourselves out of the safe when the batteries went flat!)

Kings Salt Lake is exclusively reserved for those staying in the adjacent rooms and is fantastic with a sandy beach leading into a fairly large seawater lake ideal for swimming. We enjoyed the free ice-cold face towels and fruit brought to our sunbeds morning and afternoon. There are plenty of sunbeds and so no need for the early hours rush with towels to claim a spot. We tended to stroll down after breakfast around 10am and had more or less the pick of the place.
The lake is just above the main beach which is the usual coral reef so sea swimming from shore is very limited but there are pontoons leading to the reef edge, one of which is huge with two inset swimming pools and is excellent for snorkeling or just sunbathing.

The all-inclusive Bahia Bar looking out over the bay is just next to the Salt Lake and a lovely spot to spend evenings, the staff being fantastic and quickly learning your drinks preferences. As usual, a little politeness and friendliness pays off and differentiates from the Russians and is appreciated. The shopping centre is also near the Salt Lake with a large selection of boutique-sized shops selling a wide range of goods. We also used the bus service to take us to the Main Gate a few times where we caught taxis (plenty outside, but remember to haggle!) to 'Hollywood' (a nearby shopping centre with fountain displays) and Na'ama Bay.

A very nice resort with something for everyone, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Kings Salt Lake rooms all face the Lake and have decent wifi in the room. Other areas you may have...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Harem for a week in July. The Harem is one lf seven Domina hotels sharing the same space, meaning you can't use everything on site,some specific to rhw dearer hotels. We were very impressed with our stay.

Rooms - spacious and well laid out with good amenities. Bathroom was particularly good.

Pool - Always sunbeds available if you arrive before 11am. And area quietens down after lunch. Spare beds around too which you can drag under an umbrella. Pool bar service quick and music plays throughout the day. Day time pool activities, but don't occupy the pool for those not wanting to join in. Pool is large enough and refreshing.

Beach - Can get the taf taf to the beach, but its quicker to walk-about five minutes. Lots of sunbeds on the beach and conveniently located for bar and towel point. Jetty over coral to allow for snorkeling/swimming/jumping!

All inclusive bars - you can use the reception bar at Harem, Harem pool bar, main beach bar and Bahia beach bar, closely located to main arena so good port of call in the evenings. Bahia beach bar gets very busy in evening but again, quietens a bit from about 10pm meaning you can get a table easily then. Enough bars, strategically placed, for day and night time needs.

Food - Good meal times. Good variety. Good quality. Friendly service.

Staff - Helpful! Friendly! The Animation team are around during the day and night, but aren't pushy trying to sell you stuff. If you say no they accept it and wont bother you.

Nigntlife - The club on site costs to get in. About 100-120LE. And then you buy drinks inside. For that reason I can't comment on it as we didn't go. The casino is free to enter. Was very quiet when we went (about 10:30pm on a Saturday) but was a fun experience with good variety. The main arena is free (alhtour the bar isn't) and ia typical, cheesey holiday resort entertainment.

Transport - Can get taxis from hotel but if you get a taf taf to main gate, you can get one of the blue and white 'buses' (essentially a minibus) to Naama or Old Town for 5LE. The buses sometimes come down to Domina gate, other times you need to walk the ten minutes to main road and then wave one down. Def recommend this mode of travel! Fun and cheap!

Hotel overall is well located for airport, Naama Bay, Soho square, Old Town. Friendly staff, good variety, good price! Would recommend!
