When we got to Sharm El Sheikh for the first evening it quickly became clear we had stumbled across an excellent place to stay. The Novotel probably has the prime location in Naama Bay, right on the beachfront with beautiful private beach, with coral to snorkel over etc. easy access to water sports. It's near enough to walk to the centre of the town, but far enough away to be quiet. The room was great. (Superior double room, massive bed, garden view, beachside). The important thing is to go for beachside, because half the hotel is on the north side of the highway, and if you are there you have to cross the road to access the beach facilities. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Next time we go to Sharm we won't be staying anywhere else.
Good staff, not always expecting tips. Its just the activity guys that hound you to buy excursions from them which becomes annoying. Also don't trust the camel guys which tend to wait outside the resort for you.

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.

Stayed for a week at the Savoy Sharm in a Garden View Suite. The Hotel was first class. The room was excellent, the hotel facilities and in particular the staff were of the highest standard.
Our only criticism was that some of the food and drink in the hotel's many restaurant was a little expensive and was less consistently excellent than other elements of the hotel. Exceptions to this were the burgers, which were very good and the food at the Seafood restaurant by the beach, which was suburb.
I could not recommend this place high enough for those wanting a high quality, relaxing beach hotel.

1st hol with 15month old baby and hubby. Although the hotel has not got alot of things aimed at kids, food is fantastic, nothing is too much for staff and hotel is spotless.
We got free upgrade to massive 2 room, double balcony suite which was great.
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.
