We had a lovely warm welcome, were upgraded to a Junior Suite due to a few problems we encountered however Mr Sayed fixed this within a matter of moments.
The staff are amazing, the restaurants are fabulous (we particularly enjoyed the Turkish and the Indian restaurant)... All the pool areas are just awesome. We absolutely loved it and would def go back in an instant.
We took a walk around to the nearby hotel complexes and they were horrible, nothing like the well maintained Rixos.
Fab choice and can't wait to go back.

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.

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.
The staff where fantastic, the food was good but did run out rather quickly due to demand.
Pools were great but not enough sun beds so had to get up at 6.30 to get one
All in all a great holiday thanks to the staff......................
