Ok, so i read the reviews before travelling and tend to agree it may not be a 5* as some of you would expect, but this IS egypt and the service from the staff made my holiday 5*!
Unfortunately, with the trouble in Cairo, there weren't many people in the hotel, but let me reassure you all that it is perfectly safe to travel to the coast and if a quiet, chilled resort is what you are looking for then Sonesta Beach will be right up your street. What made me choose this hotel over most of the others was that it had its own beach (rather than a shuttle ride or 10 minute walk), which was heaven. The main pool was great and a second pool was also available.
The food choice was a little limited, but that was purely down to the situation and the lack of guests - but the chefs did there best with what they had. The staff were attentive and bent over backwards to make your holiday special. I even got pancakes added to the breakfast menu thanks to Ghaly and the chefs. The rooms were clean and i loved the towel creations :-) Daif in reception was always there to help with any queries and his english is fantastic! and Baghat made sure that the drinks were flowing in the piano bar. The diving was great (cheers Gamil) and the Cleopatra spa experience was definitely something i won't forget for a while! All in all i would definitely recommend this hotel, in particular if you are planning a break on your own - its perfectly safe and you won't be alone for long.
