A good 4 star hotel, we enjoyed our one week stay.
Location: Sea Garden is one on the three Sea Group hotels situated together not far from Sharm El Sheikh airport. It is the smallest and the quietest of the three. Sea beach is a short walk away (Sea Life and Sea Club are seaside hotels while Sea Garden is not). Outside the hotels, there's only desert - no shops or other entertainment close by. Unlike in Naama Bay or Nabq Bay, you can't just walk out of hotel to have fun.
Rooms: Suites are very spacious and well-maintained. Living room has one large (though not a king-size) bed and a small TV. Also, there is an antechamber with two smaller beds. Room safe and a real refrigerator are also nice to have. Bathroom is large, but lighting there could be better. Doors have old-style keys, not keycards.
Pool: Hotel has one large pool with two areas - smaller for kids and large with 5'-something depth for adults. Sunbeds are typically available, though best ones are always taken early. Note that you can go to any of the other two hotels' pools. Towel card system, fresh towels may not be available in late afternoons.
Sea/Beach: Available at Sea Life/Sea Garden hotels, it’s about 5 minute walk from Sea Garden. Plenty of sunbeds. The beach is a mix of stone, sand and corals, it’s better if you have your aquashoes on. At the beach, the sea is very shallow, but very calm and water can get real hot, like a bathtub. 50-100 meters away is the reef, and the sea depth drops to some 8-10 meters right after the reef. There is one jetty, at the Sea Life side, and it was always busy. Snorkeling was not as good as I expected – the current was strong, and most people were just hanging around the bottom of jetty’s platform. The situation there I can describe as "human soup". If you are strong swimmer, try getting away from the pack, or get fins, or, better yet, go to snorkeling boat trip.
Restaurant: You can go to any of the three hotels’ restaurants. Food is similar between all of them, but the variety is the best at 5-star Sea Life. At the Sea Garden, food was decent, but not really outstanding. Funny thing – when we went to Petra trip, which starts at 3AM, hotel prepared a boxed breakfast for us. Boxes had bread rolls, butter and spreads, but absolutely nothing to pick these spreads with.
Staff: Staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful. Mostly, the do not solicit tips and do what is expected without them. Shortly, it’s much better than in other places in Sharm El Sheikh, almost as good as in El Gouna.
Pros: Nice, friendly, quiet, amenities of 3 hotels for the price of 1.
Cons: Mosquitos!!! Sea is a bit far away and not so comfortable for swimming.
