This was our first trip to Sharme-El-Sheikh and I was a little worried at negative reviews of many top hotels.
After researching on trip advisor and a few other sites I came across this resort.
It was the best choice ever.
Excellent resort with very well kept public areas, gardens etc. Lovely pools that were very clean and direct access to a private beach. Every member of staff we met were very friendly and polite and we were made to feel extremely welcome. We have travelled to many countries and stayed in many nice hotels and I have to say that this was the friendliest place I've ever stayed.
The customer service was excellent.
Food was good if a bit repetitive in the main restaurant but the 5 Al- a- Carte restaurants were very good. We had no problem booking them in fact the customer service staff booked the whole week for us.
All in all we had a wonderful holiday and had lots of little extras thrown in as it was my Birthday.
I do have to say though that although our room was lovely , very large, clean and lovely view the bathroom could do with a little attention to bring it up to 5 star standard.
This did not spoil our holiday in any way and we would definitely return to this resort again.
We felt totally safe and secure whilst we were there but we did not venture outside the resort.

the fairmount is a world class hotel, staff were impeccable and the spa very very good. saigon restaurant was superb. only complaint i would make is no smoking areas would be good as the egyptians smoke more than any place i have visited over the last 5 years.
you will not regret staying at this hotel as the staff are all so wonderful. would recommend fairmont hotels to anyone as i have never had a bad experience.

Food - plentiful, a huge selection, something for all tastes - from home comforts to the exotic. The buffets (breakfast and evening) are eye-popping!
Staff - they were extremely pleasant and courteous, from the beach attendants to the waiters; there wasn't a weak link anywhere.
The beach - spotlessly clean, plenty of loungers to choose from. A restaurant withing yards, but who are also happy to bring it to your sun-lounger.
The water - Pools = vast, spotless, heated/normal, no shortage of loungers. "Lazy river" = great fun and for us it was a daily must. The sea = clean, clear and calm. I cannot find fault with any of it.
Room - very spacious, excellent room service and housekeeping, air-conditioning & fan.
Other - we dined one evening at the on-site French restaurant - Alexander's; first class dining and well worth a visit. My wife went to the Spa for a massage and loved it!
There were many different nationalities staying there, who helped make it a wonderful stay. The atmosphere is a very friendly one, without night-time noise (at least to my knowledge).
The clientele ranged from elderly couples to young couples, to young families; from what I saw, there's something for everyone.
We (my wife, daughter and I) agreed that we would definitely go back.
