We have just come back from spending a fantastic week at the Sealife hotel. Before going on holiday we read some negative reviews of this hotel and were a little worried but after emailing a few people who had already been we were a bit more confident. A big thank you to those who gave us advice. Any worries we had were soon gone.
The hotel was lovely and has stunning gardens and views. The beach was great and the people very warm and welcoming. In fact they couldn't do enough for you. The room was comfortable and well cleaned every day. The pool looked nice but we didn't go in it as we spent most of our time at the beach.
The restaurant and bar staff were super and went 'all out' to make sure we had a good time. Whilst there it was my husbands 50th birthday. The staff made him a cake and organised a special table for us. They also sang happy birthday to him in English and Arabic!!!
The food was good with a variety of choices each day, especially the cakes. You would have to be really fussy to not be able to find something you liked...
We ate at the Lebanese restaurant one night. This was excellent but there was SO much food we couldn't eat it all. Cost was about £28 for 2 people.
The 'all inclusive' covered most things there. It didn't include food at the beach bar or fresh fruit juices, but they did serve carton juice which was perfectly acceptable. You could also get Nescafe at the sports bar and main restaurant, again this was free.
We did get hassled a bit at the beach to have massages, go on trips or to try the other restaurants etc. A smile and a polite no thanks is all it takes and they will leave you in peace.
We did go on 2 trips. My husband went on a scuba dive with Camel dive school. He said it was brilliant and would reccomend them. It cost £45 and was 1-1 tuition and a dive. He would also reccomed Jackie the instructor.
We went Quad biking in the dessert which was another good experience, the views in the dessert were breath taking. We booked this on the beach with Mohamed from EL sharm safari. It cost about £25 per person and was well worth it.
The animation team and hotel entertainment were both quite dire. It was mostly aimed at the German, Russian and Italian guests. We made our own entertainment so it wasn't an issue for us.
Sadly there were people that moaned a lot. I don't exactly know what they expected form the holiday but my advice to them would be... If its that bad, stay at home next time!!!!
