Stayed at the Royal Rehana hotel in Sharm El Sheik for 2 wks got recommended after just one day I was served raw chicken for lunch. Next day in the El Tekya Ala Carte I was served raw chicken and became very ill ended up on a drip with high temp and low blood pressure. The food was awful ate out 7 nights out of 14 !! Full of Russians who are so arrogant and rude. Our rep was useless couldn't get moved to another hotel. The staff were all for the Russians. Saving their sun beds at 10 pm the day before . The reception were useless do unhelpful and not good English .. The cleaner was useless . We did enjoy our trips out of the complex but never stay at this hotel .. Only a few English thank god we met a nice family for our last few days.. Animation team no good all was in Russian .. You have been warned peeps don't stay here 5 star no way more like 3 stars!!!!!!

Stayed: June 2014

First off, great holiday but this hotel is one to avoid.

In a nutshell:
The hotel has around a 98% Russian occupancy. They are the rudest people I have ever come across and it really did have a negative affect on our experience at this hotel.

The food served here is not edible - unless you're Russian. Me and my partner both were sick from the food served here. We did complain and then we could eat at the a la carte restaurants but still, no where near what I would expect from a 5* hotel.
I have been back from sharm for a week now and I am still not 100% well.

The alcohol isn't fantastic either.

The majority of the staff are rude and unhelpful. Again - not 5*. That is unless you tip them.

The sea was awesome, the snorkelling was really good. The pools were nice but poorly maintained and often dirty.

Excursions we did:
Quad biking, tiran island boat trip and we also took a taxi down to Soho Square. These were all highlights of our holiday to Sharm and getting out of that hotel is definitely neccessary.
There are a few English bars down the road that we visited due to all the hotel entertainment being in Russian and also being the only English people there, it wasn't much fun to sit and drink at the hotel.

Again, I cannot stress this enough - Sharm is an awesome place. Just not this hotel.

I recently returned from sharm el sheikh with my girlfriend and really feel the need to warn people against this hotel.

Sharm itself was great, the weather was lovely, the beaches, the activities (we went diving, quad biking etc) so we were able to enjoy ourselves but our stay at this hotel was truly awful.

The staff were rude and uninterested yet the expect to be tipped for their service all the time. There were a few staff that were nice but only a few worthy of working in a place that somehow describes itself as a 5* hotel.

The facilities were pretty good to be fair. The pools were nice but poorly cleaned at times. The part of the beach it's on is great for snorkeling and seeing fish and coral. The rooms were fine. Nothing special, probably would have expected more for what we paid.

The two things that really ruined our stay here was the food and the sheer amount of Russian people in the hotel. The food can only be described as inedible. The only thing we could eat at breakfast was boiled eggs and toast, for lunch just chips, and the food served at dinner I probably wouldn't feed to my dog. We got food poisoning during our stay and so did every other English person we met (not that there were many).

98% of the people staying at this hotel were Russian. I counted ten English people throughout the whole holiday. The Russians staying there were very rude, no please or thank you (even the staff did not like them because they are so disrespectful to them) they stared and laughed while clearly talking about you, the push in front of you in ques, they were creepy towards my girlfriend when I wasn't there (in front of their wives and kids as well). We felt unwelcome the whole time.

We were able to have a good holiday just because of the weather, pools, beaches etc but there is absolutely no way I would ever recommended going to this hotel. I might return to sharm but would do my research into where to stay better because at the Rehana the staff were rude and the whole place is basically catered for Russian people not British.

We returned to this hotel for a 2 week break in June. The staff at this hotel are wonderful and can't do enough for you. The rooms are a good size and well furnished.The food in the buffet is not very good but the speciality restaurants are very good with plenty of choice. Must give a mention about Osamma in the food court and Adel in reception who were extremely nice and helpful. We would return again to this hotel.

This is our 2nd visit to the rehana royal hotel and loved every minute of it the staff are always so friendly and welcoming our room was beautiful with the sea veiw straight outside our window. The entertainment staff are amazing as always and will do anything for you as well. Will be going there again for a third visit as is a beautiful place. The food could of been better in the main restaurant as don't cater much for English but for our evening meal we either went to the Chinese or Italian which are absolutely beautiful.

We arrived in May for an 8 nights stay. This hotel is truly gorgeous. Everything you'd expect from a 5 star. Our room was amazing. We were given a prestige room. 1115. Right next to the pool couldn't have asked for better. It was absolutely full of Russians and I don't care about their different culture I found a lot of them extremely rude and arrogant but it did not spoil our holiday. The pool area during the day was where we spent most of our time. Agni, Sambo and the rest of the entertainment team were amazing!! Really made our stay enjoyable. The only downside to our entire holiday was the food. We really struggled to find anything we liked. There was a huge selection and the Russians seemed happy enough but we ended up not bothering with dinner a lot of the time. We ordered room service a few nights which was amazing. The Italian restaurant was lovely. We went for my birthday and the brought out a cake and sang to me(embarrassing but lovely). The men who walk round the pool trying to sell various trips and spa treatments were annoying to begin with but took hint eventually. Would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone and for out first time in Sharm it was awesome.
