The best staff I have ever met in 50 years of travelling, and I mean it.
Cleanliness very good Location excellent Facilities good Food average/good Animation team very good Pools and Sea very good Pool staff excellent Piano Bar staff excellent Restaurant staff excellent Reception and Concierge staff excellent Although we prefer some features in other hotels, we both decided that the staff were so helpfull, polite, welcoming and with excellent service and attitude, that they cancelled out other preferences. It will be a real pleasure to return here and see these "friends" again. Thank you to Goma, Yasser and all the team around the pool. Thank you to Mahmoud, Hani, Elia and all the Piano Bar team. Thank you to Caroline, Alex and all the Animation Team. And thank you to the Management for their excellent guidance to the staff to create such a delightful experience.More

food is good but there is nothing to do. I used to be in Egypt 7 times and I worked there before. There is terrible beach, poor animation program and far from the center. Does not worth it for money that they wantMore

An excellent holiday
I am 13 years old and recently went on holiday with my parents and teenage sister for a week during spring half-term with First Choice. The location was beautiful and the hotel was always clean and well looked after. We enjoyed using all the facilities available at the sport hotel including riding lessons and squash (available for a fee). The food in the hotel was very good and we tried lunch in all 4 available restaurants inside the hotel which all exceeded our expectations. My mum snorkelled ever day off the pontoon off the hotel and came back each time having seen something even more exciting than the last (including: blue-spotted sting ray, sea urchin, lion fish) We were planning to go on a day trip to Luxor, but because of the disaster near Taba it was cancelled but the First Choice rep was very sympathetic and immediately gave us a full refund. Because of this, on the last day we took a boat trip with 'Marina Divers' based on the beach. It was a lovely day on a beautiful boat. We were taken to three popular snorkelling spots and enjoyed all of it. We were served an excellent lunch taking into account where it had been prepared, and were even offered a try at diving (although none of us took up the offer) All staff were very friendly throughout the hotel and spoke good English. We had two rooms in the 'Turquoise Area' which was nearer to the front gate than the beach. Because of the is, we had no disturbance from the entertainment and slept soundly. Our room was also pool view, which meant that we could go and swim as it opened - with no-one else there. The entertainment team was putting activities on everywhere including aerobics in the pool, which we saw multiple times. Even though the hotel was 90% full when we were there, the hotel managed everyone very well and did not seem excessively busy. There were a significant amount of Russians, but they were polite and we did not have any problems with them. Don't be put off by other reviews - it really is an excellent hotel, perfect for families.More

Great Hotel poor service
Returned from Concorde El Salam on 26th February 2014, The weather was very hot about 30 degrees, The hotel and rooms were amazing, beautiful gardens and heated pools which we used everyday. The food in the Hotel suited me as a vegetarian but the rest of my family were not so impressed. I really can not fault the Hotel and surrounds and we all enjoyed our stay very much. But the way the hotel is run is almost laughable, the dining room was in two parts one being outside, this was also used for the entertainment, it was a nightmare trying to get a table – then get it cleared of used plates etc, fighting to get the table laid out again, then to get a drink we had to grab a waiters attention and order as there was no bar, 9 time out of ten they would get the order wrong. One more thing about the hotel I didn't like was the fact that smoking was allowed everywhere so we had smoke blown all over us at breakfast lunch & dinner. On entrance to the Hotel we were given towel card for each person with the room number – by the end of the week the staff had lost 3 of our cards. The cleaners were very friendly and made their selves known as soon as we got there, but seemed to spend too much time making swans and hearts out of the towels than looking at the the cleaning, when we got there the bathroom tiles had mosquito's splatted on the tiles, we added to them but no attempt was made to clean them. On the first day there we asked reception where the Kids club was – he told us but we could not find it after going back to reception several times, we asked one of the animation team and she didn't know either. We eventually found it in the hotels other complex across the road to which you could get a bus to, we walked and found it not very good, there was a mini disco which lasted 20 minutes then there was cartoons, the staff looking after the children did not speak English and security was not good as gates were left open. Outside there is an area called Soho Square which had an ice rink, shops and a kids funfair, restaurants and bars which was great and we all felt very safe there. The hotel beach had a coral reef 50 metres off the shore, snorkelling there was amazing. The Naama Bay area we didn't like as the traders there would not leave us alone, browsing the shops was impossible. Overall we enjoyed our holiday and the bad service became a joke.More
Great hotel - Well looked after, just book front side.
We moved here following a very poor start to our holiday at the Tirana Aqua Park Hotel. All in all this was a great stay, which I can summarise as follows: The good: - Location. Right next to Soho Square and literally on the beach (if on front side) - Staff LOVE the English. Mainly due to the fact of how we behave in comparison to the major Russian contingent that frequent this hotel. - Front side is fantastic. Amazing pool, beach bar and all facilities within less than 5 min walk - Clean and well managed facilities - Decent food. Not Gourmet by any means but still more than good enough for an AI The bad: - 85% Russian guests - Wifi is horrendous - Evening entertainment served up in an area that seats less than a 1/3 of front side guests. Subsequent entertainment (in Nightclub) not worth bothering with - Evening entertainment so loud that even in the rooms furthest away (as we were), you can still hear it until after 22:30 - Animation team are very poor at advising when activities are taking place. Top tip - Have your breakfast at the Italian restaurant. The options are limited, but the location and fact its very quiet make for a fantastic way to start your day. Make sure you book the front side as sports side poor in comparison. If you can stretch to it take a beach front room as they are by far the best location by a long shot.More
