I booked a week in the hotel for me, my husband and two children starting on Boxing Day back in Feb of this year and secured the booking with a credit card. As well as confirmation from the agency I booked with, I also received an e-mail from the hotel confirming that they had pre-authorised my credit card. Earlier today (9 months after the original booking) I received an e-mail from the hotel asking If I would like to book the gala New Years dinner at $110 per head. I e-mailed back to say that as we have young children we won't be booking the dinner and about an hour later received an e- mail saying they have cancelled my booking. The hotel have refused to answer my e-mails and have not responded to calls from the agency I booked with but the room I booked has now been reserved by someone else. I am now in the situation where I have flights booked but as it's so close to my travel date and I'm going over a busy period, cannot find another accommodation available with the facilities we wanted.More

Stacey G,

The Russians are coming! (are come!!)

I have to agree with everything the reviewer theobriensmiths said. Every word is true, including the nail-varnish remover drinks. We weren't on a package, and quite naturally expected to pay for our own drinks. However, when we asked for gin and tonic we were served the package, local gin which was undrinkable. It took 45 minutes to get a real drink, and then it was served with a straw! The concierge couldn't have been better, the front desk was friendly and efficient, but it was frankly quite unpleasant to be surrounded by such large numbers of what looked like Russian Mafia. Our room wasn't bad, big and well located with a sea view, but all the rooms are in blocks scattered around the central part of the hotel, and it was a bit like Butlins. We often stay at the Concorde el Salam in Cairo, so that's why we thought we'd give this Sharm hotel a try. We didn't realise they had sold their souls to the cheap package business. So, if we go back, which is unlikely because we are not sun-worshippers, and there is not much else to do in Sharm except sunbathe, swim and dive, we would go to the Hyatt, which is not full of Russians and has lovely gardens.More

Not best hotel ever stayed in

just returned from holiday the hotel is rated 5* not sure how, it is clean but the staff are not attentive and getting served was hard work, had to rent a kettle, tea and coffee not replenished only 6 coffee and 6 tea bags to last a week and powdered milk. Not a place I would return to again. No attention to detail as other 5* hotels I have stayed in 😞More

Girls holiday in Oct 2014

This hotel has some very good points but some equally some bad points that let it down . The pool area and swim up bar are very nice , the staff good fun and the beach bar lovely as equally is the Italian restaurant down on the beach. The biggest dissapointment is the quality of the drinks on the all inclusive package . The house vodka , gin , and bacardi all taste the same and its like drinking nail varnish remover it is that bad, The white and red wine undrinkable . The rose is just passable but I couldnt do more than one glass . The place was full of really rude russians and the main buffet restaurant was like feeding time at the zoo . It was also very tired looking and more like a canteen than a restaurant. Our saving grace was that as English we were invited every evening to the Italian restaurant on the beach . There were very few russians here as they had to pay extra so we spent every evening and morning here to eat as we could not face being pushed and shoved by rude people with no manners . The entertainmment looked good although we did not wish to rush down at 6.30pm to secure a place as this is when all the russians would rush in to get the best tables. It was the same in the mornings the russians would have there stuff on the sun loungers by 7 am in the morning so you could not get a decent spot unless you went right down the bottom where we luckily managed to find a quiet spot . The room boy was very attentive and the waiters down at the beach restaurant very good , but the holiday was somewhat marred when one of the staff on the last evening asked us for money for a tip quite blatantly , which we were going to do obviously but this left a bad feeling . One of the chefs made a lemon merengue pie for one of our girls which was so thoughtful and the head chef Alain was very nice and came out to speak to all his customers every evening as did the second chef. being able to go here and get away from the cattle market which ensued in the main dining room was clearly the holiday saver. I personally would not return to this hotel unless there were no russians , after staying a the Hyatt regency in Sharm and Makadi Spa in hurghada these hotels do not seem to attract russian guests. .More
