“nothing special, but not bad price/quality ratio”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

Just got back from one week stay in Rehana Sharm resort - try to give you short review:
- location - this is second row of the hotels looking from the sea, so you either walk 5-10 minutes across sister hotel (rehana royal) or go through a tunnel below the street and take a free hotel bus; hotel is in nabq bay - about 15 km from Sharm el Sheikh, but the road is good and it is 10 min by taxi or bus (we were 6 persons group, so we were using minibus and paid ca. 10 dollars one way)
- room - clean, quite spacious, we had street view, but it was not very loud, AC very effective - it was sometimes even too cold in the night;
- resort - big one - from reception to main restaurant more than 5 minutes walk;
- pools - 4 pools, but all of them quite shallow and first time saw the bottom finish not made of tiles but of foil layer - it was a bit rucked up and looked cheap; cleanliness - good; two pools with direct bar with service from water, one big bar by the third pool - but you had to go out from the pool to get a drink
- food - not bad, of course repeated, but almost always you could find someting quite tasty - the best point was the four outside grill stations; worst - breakfasts, best - dinners; there are also 3 a la carte restaurants - indian was great, mexican - also, but avoid italian - a little disaster;
- service - very frinedly and helpful staff; the strongest point of the whole experience
- drinks - I was using all incl. also in greece and turkey, but never drunk so poor drinks as in egypt, total disaster, exept for beer which tasted good, but even if you had 8 - you were never drunken...
- beach bar - the worst drink/food station of the whole resort - smells really bad, no beer!! lots of garbage by the bar; so if you wanted to eat anything there - your appetite was lost immediately!
- beach - quite clean, always possible to find some sunbeds; good to have watershoes - not sandy, rather rocky shore;
- reef - beautiful!!!! we were by the boat to do some snorkling in Tiran island and few other places but just by our hotel there were the most beautiful fish and most numerous. the only thing that makes visit to Egypt worth it!
- overall remarks - garden is really nice so it is nice to walk across the resort; good sunbeds, but people put towels on them from very morning; lots of russian, a bit less polish, some ukrainians and few british and dutch people;
If you plan to do diving / snorkling and stay in not expensive place - I can recommend it.
Regards! JK

We have just got back from this hotel we stayed for a week, it was the worth holiday I have been on the food was horrible and nasty and always cold. I lived on chips most of the week. I never went to breakfast as i heard so many bad parts about it. Would give this holiday a 3 star not a 5 which is what it is. You are only allowed 1 drink when u go to the bar. We went on 9th June till 16th June 2012

After reading the reviews for this hotel before coming on our honeymoon I wad extremely nervous about what to expect!! How very wrong I was we had a amazing week in beautiful grounds, lovely clean rooms, friendly staff that were not rude to me in anyway!! The food in the upstairs resturants was to die for and their special 'fruity cocktails' weren't bad either. I would definately return to this hotel with my children as there was daily entertainment for them and of course the slides

Stopped here for a week 21/5/12- 28/5/12.....on arrival we were shown to our room by a very polite man the room was perfectly fine.afer freshening up we then went to the restaurant - yes the food was very bland and samey but we had no issues with sickness or upset stomachs.

The pools were nice and we had no issues getting sunbeds every day - the pool towels we had were always clean.

Our room was cleaned by a very nice man on a daily basis and the sheets/room were always OK.

When you need a taxi i suggest using the Hotel taxi man- he was very helpful and gave us him mobile number to call him when we were ready to come back to the resort and the taxi's were very reasonably priced.

Nearly all staff were extremely friendly with a very young pool boy at the pool near reception being the only exception, he was very rude and annoying!!!

The only thing was that there were a lot of cats wondering around the resort... yes there are a lot of Russians but we never had any issues with them being rude, in fact some were quite friendly!!

I must admit we did get bitten a few times but this never happened in our rooms, it was always in the evening near the pools.

The only thing i would say is to keep an eye on your towels as ours were stolen - reception were not very helpful in this matter however the lovely man Omar at the pool soon got this sorted for us.

We had such a good time that we are going back on the 7th July :)

we were at the airport for 2 hours as a little man ran away with out transfer detail and nobody could help us :( this resort is about 10-15mins away from the airport.

omg!!! where to start, this hotel is full of Russian and polish.. the men were very rude and perverted, i felt very uncomfortable, Egyptian staff even told me to stay away from the men as they get too drunk and tend to get rough which was worrying, the women were rude, they were all very rude and loud... there were maybe two other british couples in this hotel, i also felt very uncomfortable as the only mixed race person along with my sister in this whole hotel i didn't feel welcome at all!!!!!! :(

the food was beyond disgusting, i wouldn't feed my dog what they serve, to the right of the rehana was a pub/bar called the union jack, was i glad to find that place! the food was fab and it seemed everybody had the same idea as it was packed with British every night. i was saved!

our room was kept very tidy, the house keeping was a lovely man and we gave him the biggest tip as he was one of the nicest people in that hotel, so humble and kind. we did get a few roaches in our room and when house keeping cleaned they did let in loads of mosquito's but we called reception and got spray, the key was to spray your room every night before you go out and spray yourself and you will not get bitten, many people at the pool side looked eaten alive!

some of the staff are nice but most of them were rude or inappropriate, saying things like miss.rehana would you marry me, come back and see me later, give me a kiss and i give you this for free and so on..... whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

they also haven't finished building in the so in the day when you are sun bathing by the pool you can smell strong fumes and alot of dust in the air and also the workers/builders were peeping toms looking through peep holes of the building they were working on.

the grounds of the rehana were very pleasing to the eye ans the pools were nice and kept clean, but if you want a perv free hotel do not stay here!

would never go back... but jolie ville sharm where my friend stayed was lovely full of lovely people...

Just returned from a 10 night stay, really couldn't of gone quick enough!! First of all this hotel is advertised as 5*, it most definitely is not, more like 3 although most staff say it's a 4 apart from reception who try to convince you it's a 5*!! The resort itself is great with the pool area massive & always a sun lounger spare, the animation team during the day were friendly & did a good job of trying to get you involved. The food was terrible, mainly catering for the vast amount of Russians in the hotel but still completely inedible & repetitive, a trip outside the hotel for a decent meal is the way forward. The bar staff were mainly pretty good, if you tip & the housekeepers do their best with a grotty room. The Reception staff I found rude along with the restaurant staff who could do with a course in customer service. Overall a crappy hotel & I would never return.

In May this year we visited Rehana Sharm for the 2nd time. We like this hotel a lot. The personnel is very friendly and helpfull. Sherif the chef always have a happy face! Also the people from the animation team were very kind and nice to us. They offered a lot of nice entertainment, especially the show with people who walked on glass was awesome and the dances at the pool! The rooms are large and the cleaning is good. The food in the all inclusive restaurant is okay, it was a lot better than last year. (the quality of the food, and there was more choice now) But it's still a little bit simular every day. The Italian restaurant is very good! The only thing that they should change is the all inclusive formula at the day of departure. We had tot give our bracelets back at 12:00 hour but we were leaving at 20:00 hour.. The first day we arrived very late at 22:00 hour. So that was not very fair in our opinion… But we are looking forward tot visit Rehana Sharm again in November this year!
