“Rixos - The "Gold Standard" in Sharm El Sheikh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

I have been a frequent visitor to Sharm El Shiekh since September of 2009. I have stayed and visited numerous properties in the area and must say that Rixos stands out as among the best in Egypt. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. The bathrooms were large, spotless and had an ample supply of complimentary toiletries available. The room layout I had, room 17002 was intelligently laid out and the large flat screen tv could swivel making the late night transition from sitting room couch area to the sleeping area a snap.

This is a full service resort and I tried both the a la-carte restaurants and the included breakfast buffet. Both of my dining experiences were excellent. The breakfast choices were easily the most varied and fresh of any resort hotel in Sharm.

The pools, there were many, were clean and well maintained. The beach area had abundant areas to relax and the jetty served as a bridge for snorkelers and divers to explore the marine life on the adjacent reef.

The staff were attentive and went the extra mile to make sure you had what you needed. When I was there the occupancy was at around 70%, which is a good indicator of the hotel’s commitment to its guests and well-earned service reputation.

Although I was there on business, the resort is geared to all travelers, business and families alike. The GM of the resort, Sami Kaplanci, really has a keen eye for detail and runs a top notch operation. Without hesitation I give this hotel my highest endorsement for a resort hotel and will visit again.

Just returned from our second visit to this amazing hotel, Having stayed here last year we knew we were in for a great holiday and were not disappointed, the hotel has added an additional al a carte since our last visit (Turkish) which is located right on the beach both the location and ambiance of this restaurant are stunning and the food is to die for. I just wish we had booked a longer stay than one week as the hotel now have more restaurants than can be visited in a one week stay you can only imagine our dilemma having to leave one or two out.

My wife Yvonne and I would love to say a big thank you to each and every member of the Rixos team for making yet another holiday one to remember I would like to name all of them but this review would then go on and on but a very special thank you to Mr Hasan for his legendary help with just about anything, and also to Ali Mohammed from the recreation department this guys smile can be seen from one side of the pool to the other he really is a credit to Rixos hotels.

We would not hesitate to whole heartedly recommend Rixos Sharm to anyone looking for a Luxury holiday at an affordable price, feel free to PM me via tripadvisor if you have any more detailed questions about my review or the hotel

We have just returned from having a wonderful week at this hotel. From the first greeting where we were told that we had been upgraded to a Junior Suite to the time we departed wewere extremely well looked after. The food in the buffet restaurant was very good and you could not go hungry - but the food did seem to have a leaning towards the Russian fraternity.

We used the Japanese, Indian, Asian and Italian a la cartes. The Italian we personally did not find so good - they were slow in serving and brought 2 courses at once and didn't understand that we wanted them as seperate courses. That said, another couple we spoke to said it was brilliant - so it probably was a one off incident. The remaining restaueants were absolutely fabulous.

this is the second year for us at a Rixos hotel - last year it was on The Palm in Dubai Dubai.

This September we are going to a new Rixos in Dubai as we find the chain so good and professional. u

I just stayed at the Rixos hotel in Sharm el Sheikh for a week and really enjoyed my holiday. The hotel is absolutely massive and it is worth mentioning that the majority of guests are Russian. The hotel grounds are very nice and well maintained. With around 6 swimming pools as well as the beach to choose from, the hotel never felt crowded or too busy and there really was something for everyone (from the main pool, where the activities and games took place, to the smaller and more secluded and quiet pools).
We stayed in a deluxe room, which was massive and very clean. Bathrooms are very big and nicely furnished. So can't find any fault with that. What made the trip so amazing was really the staff and service though. Nothing is too much to ask and everyone from the waiters to the reception staff are making every effort to help and make your stay enjoyable. The animation team is also working extremely hard and I have to say the entertainment programme is amazing. From the shows to the activities and the nightly parties, everything was done with so much effort, very impressive.
If I were to visit shark el sheikh again, I will definitely stay at the Rixos again.
Food wise, there is plenty of choice with two main buffet restaurants and 7 a la carte restaurants, of which 5 are included in the all inclusive deal. I have to admit that we only went to the buffet restaurants as we really enjoyed the food and like the variety and choice.

Big thanks to the staff and the animation team who made this an unforgettable holiday!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room with a view on the main pool. Even though this is quite far to walk to the beach...

My partner and I stayed in this hotel in October and enjoyed it so much that we booked back up again for January. I have stayed in many hotels with both Thomas Cook and Thomson but The Rixos wins hands down! Nothing is too much trouble here the hotel and grounds are absolutely immaculate, the staff are constantly cleaning or wiping and the bar service is professional and efficient. The food is excellent in both the Nefertiti and in the A la Carte restaurants however, the beach restaurant which becomes the seafood restaurant in the evening is fabulous as are the staff in there. Thanks to Bella in Guest Relations for dealing with our room request and providing us with a room near the beach view and we will see you again in January 2015 for two weeks this time! WELL DONE!

I was at Rixos hotel for 3 nights in the beginning on May.The hotel outdoor surroundings are really nice,staff is well trained and very polite.
BUT my 'deluxe' room was awful,very poor and cheap furnished,not good even for 4 star hotel.
For the spent 3 nights,couldn't sleep,because of the terrible bed,please must change it as soon as possible!!!
For my luckiest,everything else was Fine!!!!

We are extremely disappointed that you find the rooms awful as all rooms are well equipped with modern amenities and elegantly decorated and furnished. Since becoming Rixos in 2012 we have been adding to our facilities and services and we will continue to do so in order to meet our guests expectations. Your feedback is much appreciated and will be shared with the relevant Management and will help us with our plans for the future.

Once again thank you for your comments and we hope to see you again in the future
