We chose to go to Sharm for the winter sunshine and it certainly delivered. On arrival we paid additional money for the deluxe side, which has 2 storey blocks of rooms surrounding one of the largest pools I've seen in a hotel complex, part of which was heated. The rooms were very large with a super king sized bed and a huge bathroom with walk in shower and a bath. All the rooms on this side of the hotel overlook the pool. The non deluxe side of the hotel (the sea side) has smaller blocks set in gardens with some overlooking the main pool which again is large and deeper than the other main pool, but others only overlook the internal roads. There are some though that look over smaller pools. The sun loungers and parasols were always available. The restaurant on the deluxe side was large and well laid out, on the sea side not quite so spacious, the food in both was plentiful though the quality could have been better at times. There were several different bars in the main reception buildings and around the grounds. The service was exceptionally friendly and attentive in all areas of the hotel and from all the staff, from the boy who cleaned the room to the restaurant manager. The hotel also gives access to a small beach, (sun loungers go early here!) from which the snorkeling is fantastic. Overall for a winter sun holiday the whole experience couldn't be faulted.

Staff were fantastic, so helpful and friendly. They work exceptionally hard and long hours.
Cleanliness excellent although the general state of repair of some of the public toilets and buildings left a little to be desired.
Food was overall really good, but with my husband being semi-vegetarian, and with me being intolerant to cow's milk, eggs and almonds, it was difficult to eat sometimes, as even vegetables would either be stuffed with mince or cheese or fried in batter. It would be helpful if they had an ingredients list or at least a "contains ..." list on the signs. Also signs were very bad English so sometimes you had to have a good look or even a prod around to see exactly what it was! I put these concerns into writing to the restaurant manager, so hopefully they will be addressed.
I once saw them use the tongs from raw chicken in the steak - I mentioned this to the restaurant manager so hoping that this is addressed also.
One other point was that there are no lifts (elevators) so for disabled access or those with buggies or prams it's very bad as you have to climb stairs to get anywhere.
Overall a great hotel. We probably won't go back as we like to go out and explore and in this area it was difficult to do anything except use the pools within the hotel or the hotel beach unless you spent money on a trip.

Great staff, no Hot Jacuzzi as advertised but overall great experience, do the Free Breakfast instead of the all inclusive, then eat a different meal in Namaa Bay (walking distance along the Promenade) every night. Pick up three bottles of your favorite libations at the SSH Duty Free when you arrive.
had a wonderful stay,very relaxing
alacarte restaurants excellent
will go backjust because i am not a good swimmer found the jetty and sea entrance a bit difficult.
have seen jettys done where they are much more user friendly and could and should be improved
