This is a hotel that adopts the old fashioned management technique of walking the job, and it shows. The staff are first class, work with a smile and can not do enough for you, Hasheem our cleaner was a gem but that could be said about everyone we came in contact with. We went AI and ate 7/9 nights in the 2 speciality restaurants, Rosso is especially good quality for AI, even 5 star. Air con is brilliant, pools excellent and the snorkeling off the jetty's first class. I would avoid in the summer months as the heat when the wind stops is not comfortable - but that's not the hotels fault (we went over Easter). Sharm airport T2 is shocking though - again not the hotels fault. Will go back again for Winter sun.
Amazing few days in Royal Savoy in Sharm. First time we'd been to Sharm and it won't be our last. Fear we'll have to return here though as I doubt many other hotels there will match. Amazingly friendly staff, great location, just what we needed for a quick get away for the two of us. No children under the age of 12 allowed in this hotel but adjoins the Savoy so close enough if you wanted an injection of family life!
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 hotel is nice and lives up to its 4 stars. It is a fair way from the action and if you are looking to shop/party your holiday away then you would be better off in Naama bay but this is a good place to relax. The pools are lovely but the beach is pretty muddy and unimpressive and is a 15min walk away (shuttle bus every hour or so.) Having said that it has the best snorkelling we encountered anywhere in the red sea- better than our dives at Ras Mohammed!! The food was great and we went for the half board option as we were usually off doing something at lunchtime. Would do this again. Booze is pretty pricey by egyptian standards so if you are there to drink it's probably worth going all inclusive or stocking up in duty free/Naama Bay. Would stay here again.

We had a fabulous time with every amenity available that you could wish for on a poolside/private beach holiday.
The staff were exceptional especially Tawfik, and Michael who provided excellent and very friendly service @ the pool and cascade restaurant and Ahmed our fabulous waiter at the Souk restaurant. Also a big thank you to George (Clooney lookalike) who took care of us at the beach front..
Only slight downside is that the room is a bit tired and in need of some refurb...notwithstanding that the resort is beautifully designed and well maintained throughout.
We will definitiely return.
Thanks to all for a fabulous holiday
