just returned from 2 weeks at the park inn and must say firstly that we all (2 adults 6 year old and 2 year old) have returned with some great memories and a nice tan!
we arrived at the end of dinner service which was a bit a of shock as most things including cutlery, crockery and staff seemed to have vanished. first impressions therefore were a bit on the negative side. unperturbed we headed to the Bedouin tent for some "entertainment". on arriving there were half a dozen scattered folk sat around the place looking very warm and slightly bemused at what was being offered. a warm beer from a plastic cup and it was off to bed for us.
the new day brought with it the realisation that we were virtually alone in the hotel and even waking at 930 saw almost all of the beds around the pool still free.. RESULT. the pool areas are great and my children enjoyed all of the slides and wave pool hugely. this very positive experience improved the mood and lunch was a pleasant surprise with everything and everyone being as you would expect from an all inclusive 4 star resort. the food is a bit samey, the queues can frustrate and the attitudes of the non british guests can annoy but overall we enjoyed most if all of the meals we took. the beach is a nice change of pace from the pools and the snorkelling is fantastic. a short taxi £4.00 gets you to town if you want a bit more choice with regards to food/drinks and makes for a nice change on the odd night out.
as our 2 weeks continued the place filled up, which was great of an evening as it adds to the atmosphere in the "tent" but not so great at meals times. the restaurants were running at full capacity and at times it was a bit of a scramble but not unbearable.
my suggestions to Radisson would be to try and invest in means of keeping drinks cool and investing in rigid plastic glasses in the pool and tent areas. in 100degs heat a warm small drink is not the answer. ice cream for the kids that is not $3 a pop would also be a welcome tweak and one that I feel would bring the place more in line with other all inc stays I have had.
overall, a good first taste of sharm . the staff on the whole are friendly if you are willing to make an effort with them, and always seem keen to help if asked politely. the rooms are spacious and keep clean although a bit tired. evening entertainment probably needs addressing compared to other hotels we have visited but we made some good friends so enjoyed its "cheeseyness"
thanks to all the staff who made the effort for us esp Medhat behind the bar, Ibraheim (pool) and mark in the restaurant.
