My daughter and myself have just returned from the holiday village and all i can say is what an amazing time we have had. We only went for four days, mainly for my birthday, the staff were brilliant everywhere we went in the complex i was being wished a happy birthday. The whole day was fab from start to finish. While we were there we went on the sea scope submarine which was pretty amazing, seeing all the different fish and coral, it was stunning. We went for a massage and spa therapy which is very recommended specially if you can knock the price down abit, we also had a trip to the old market, omg they drive like crazy over there, no headlights at night time lol but was well worth the visit. The restaurants have really nice food in them and never once had an upset stomach, strange food for breakfast such as burgers and ratatoullie but hey when in Rome lol. Our tour reps where fab they couldnt do enough for us, (Abi, Steph and Chris), even got me a cake for my b/day, all the staff were really helpful and friendly and always had a smile. There was some maintenance going on with the main pool area but it didnt ruin our time there as there are other pools and so close to the beach. I cant wait to go again this time next year, its just hot enough for me (25 degrees).More

unexpected holiday

Just returned from HV stayed for a week food was good a la carte's are a must there is a lot of maintenance going on but if the work wasn't done people would complain about that. This was our third stay here staff were very hard and are very polite in my experiences. Don't know whether I would have booked if I had known the lift was out of use because of the work. It hasn't put us off looking forward to going when changes are finished.More

great holiday

Just had a week in Holiday Village, the 2nd week in January and both my husband and I had a fantastic time. Our first trip to Egypt and Sharm. We upgraded to a Jacuzzi room and although our room was on the ground floor and a bit over looked, we were in block 3, it didn't stop us using it during the late afternoons when it got a bit chilly and we needed warming up from snorkelling. Our room was big and a bit dated but clean and I loved the walk in wardrobe. The shower room could do with a bit upgrading but functioned as it should. The staff were excellent and were always very friendly and could not do enough for you from the time we booked in to when we left. Must say how great Salem was on the beach, always getting our towels ready on the sun beds. He was very informative about the area, friendly and attentive. We found the main restaurant very good always with a wide choice of food and visited the al le carte restaurants, Chinese, Mexican and Italian, the latter one being the most disappointing, but on the whole we never had a bad meal and always ate far too much! We did a couple of trips through First Choice, the 'market mayhem' very good and the guide was excellent, the VIP cruise (adults only) which was excellent but we were a bit disappointed with 'Soho Square' a bit too modern and believe it is intended for the young, much preferred the older style traditional market. Never felt uncomfortable outside the hotel even when we ventured up the high street visiting local shops and everyone we met was very friendly. We would definitely go back.More

A brilliant ten days had

My husband and I have just returned from 10 days at this resort and we have no gripes except maybe the evening entertainment. We got upgraded on arrival to a family room which was on front of the quiet pool with a gorgeous patio to sit at. The room was huge and spotless. (Bed was &ft x 7ft!) We had a huge powerful shower too. The staff were really nice and helpful. The beach makes a nice change after afew days at the pool where it starts to become a wee bit of a turf war to get the best spots. Some folk try and sell you beads and cigs on the beach but if you just say no thanks, they leave. We went on the Thomson guide tour of the old market which was a bit of a waste of money as the people there hassle you so much to buy their stuff. You will be shown to three 'fixed price' shops to begin with then you can make your own way round but everyone who went on our tour ended up in the first fixed price shop just to get some peace. The wine in the restaurants is quite dear so just stick to beer and fruit juice if you don't want to pay. There is nothing wrong with the buffet food so i am not sure what others on here are moaning about. The other restaurants on site are a bit lacking but they are fine. The portions are quite small but no bad thing if you have been at the buffet all the time!! We went to the Macdonalds that is outwith the restort and beware, they sell in American sizes so expect a massive burger and drink with fries. We wanted to go snorkelling while there and we did it through Aquarius who have a stall at the beach. They organise all the transport to the site and it was fantastic. If you don't want to do the 'VIP' diving and snorkelling thing that first choice offer (for a pretty price!) do this one as you get taken out on a rib with a couple of others and its alot more personal. They guys who took us were great too and we even saw dolphins (We weren't fussed but it was still good to see them.) The evening entertainment is mainly for kids and we found ourselves just back in our room early. It is pretty awful. And they don't have a watershed on the TV so get ready for violence at 3.30pm and earlier! Overall, it was fantastic and we will definitely be back. Many thanks to all staff.More
