Stayed at Sea Gardens Oct 2013 11 nights family of four two daughters aged 8-10 , room was a family room , which had plenty of space with a pool view. High ceilings fridge and free safe to use for your valuables.
Power shower which was great.
The room was cleaned every day, although not thoroughly, but was clean.
We had a few problems with the room on arrival due to the cleanliness of the room but once it was reported to reception it was cleaned at once.
The food in the sea garden restaurant I thought was amazing my girls found something to eat at all sittings and we enjoyed the themed nights that were put on. Omelettes in the morning pancakes cereals , pastries,fruit lots and lots of choice.
Thanks to the staff in the restaurant who were friendly and and couldn't do enough for you especially Karim , Sai'd, thanks guys.
The pool area was great it had the most comfortable sun beds, the water was a little chilly but I believe from Nov 1st it's heated.
It had a shallow end and deep end. Water volleyball net the pool was a good size surrounded by lots of sunbeds.
The pool bar staff were great again friendly and helpful , spend the time to chat to them and you won't even have to get off your sun bed to get a drink they will bring it to you. The staff all work so hard throughout the hotel they work for months , 7 days a week without a day off
Spoke to one member of staff who was working for four months solid 12 hour shifts 7 days a week then gets 2 weeks off and earns around £100 a month and still manages to be polite and smile and make your stay as good as possible. Bar snacks at lunch time were hot dogs , burgers and chips which were great if you didn't fancy going into the restaurant.
Afternoon snacks were cake and rolls.
Thanks to Edward , Magdy, Romny, Mahmoud and Mohammed
You were great.
Staying at the Sea garden you can use the facilities at Sea Life and Sea Club
Sea Club being the largest the main guests are from Russia and the Ukraine. The facilities are excellent the food to be honest is just as good in Sea garden although your paying a lot more to stay at Sea Club.
I found the staff at Sea club less friendly however I was told this was because the Russian guests treat them badly no please or thank you.
So they really appreciate it when the British guests talk to them and a please and thank you goes a long way.
We used both Sea life and Sea Club bars and restaurants and enjoyed are time in them.
The beach is a short walk from Sea gardens through the gardens of sea life , wow the gardens and beautiful and well maintained. Once on the beach the snorkelling even in the shallow area is amazing there are fish of all colours everywhere,so take a mask. I also went off the jetty and snorkelled along the coral reef, amazing.
As other reviews you do get the sales guys coming around every day trying to sell trips and beauty treatments , if your polite and say no thanks
They tend just to say hi the next day as they walk past your sun
Tips, again they will take a pound coin from you , we waited a couple of days and tipped the odd 20 Egyptian (£2) to the guys that were looking after us the best. But they are just as happy with a please and thank you and enjoy having a chat with you.
The entertainment was very disappointing the animation team try but it's not great and and sea life sea club it's aimed at the Eastern Europeans.
Kids club was open during the day at sea gardens , my girls didn't use it.
There wasn't much entertainment for them during the day ok for younger children. We asked one of the animation team around the pool if they could do something for the girls to join in and the reply was "what"
I though that's your job to entertain them you engage them make them want to join in. So yes that was disappointing.
The three Ala' carte restaurants were very nice , don't forget to book.
But remember you only get a slot so they seem to serve you quickly then wasn't you out, but the food is great. Really enjoyed the Japanese restaurant.
Al in in all had a great time and will definitely go back and I am happy to recommend Sea Garden to my friends.
The hotel staff make the holiday for you they can't do enough for you
One tip if you do get the so called Sharm shuffle, ( upset tummy)
Try and get a local to get you the tablets I paid around £1 , I know the some English family went to the same pharmacy and paid nearly £20 for the same tablets.
Great holiday can't wait to return
