Nice hotel, terrible food and service

This is a very beautiful hotel situated next to soho sq. What lets this hotel down is the food and service. The staff are rude and slow in their approach to serving customers leaving you frustrated...

This is a very beautiful hotel situated next to soho sq. What lets this hotel down is the food and service. The staff are rude and slow in their approach to serving customers leaving you frustrated. We had an issue from the very first moment. We had booked 2 rooms under the same reservation and even emailed the hotel to ask for the rooms to be placed together, which they confirmed they would be. They couldn't have been any further apart. When complaining to reception the member of staff told me it was my fault as in my email I did not specify my reservation was 2 twin rooms. The food at this hotel is ok for local but I would steer well clear for the international traveller. It is very basic and hygiene seems to be a big problem with many guest complaining and it is easy to see why. The bbq area the food is left out un covered and raw with flies all over it. Locals seem to get preference at the bars and often push in and get served before you, it took me shouting at the bar staff after repeatedly being ignored to get a glass of water, something I am not proud of or want to be doing on holiday but its just a joke that you could be left patiently waiting for 15-20 minutes because the staff ignore you and are very relaxed with their job often taking calls or speaking to locals before serving you. The pool bars and its service need to be monitored and addressed. Mohamed in the Q bar was excellent along with his colleague in there. This is the only bar the service was acceptable as there is a no children policy which keeps the locals out. At checkout there is a poster for late checkout for a fee, when I asked for a late checkout I was told it was not possible as hotel was at capacity, I argued with the member of staff that it clearly is not as I can go online and book 5 rooms on the hotels website for that night. I was told that is his instructions from management and there is nothing he could do. waited 30 mins to speak to manager and found out the member of staff thought I was asking for a free late check out so tried to brush me off even though I pointed out the poster on the desk and the time/fee I would like to pay and check out. In all, nice hotel horrible staff, service and food. If your looking for a cheap place to sleep with a decent pool. if your looking for something special, go elsewhere.

We have just returned from a week in the sun! This hotel is awesome and the staff were superb. We had really great hospitality from the team. Special thanks to Chef Kamal, Mr Mohammed Hussein, Azza, Khalid (at waves bar) the two captain Sherifs the the main restaurant and everyone else! If there was one complain is the entertainment at night - we saw fire shows 3 out of the 7 nights.

We arrived home just over a week ago after staying 2 weeks from 9th August to 23rd on the Deluxe side. This was our first visit and in summary we had a fantastic holiday, made all the better by the lovely staff at the Hotel. Great value too! We found everyone to be polite, helpful & friendly from the reception & restaurant staff, through to the pool team and security. We never had to wait long to be served at any of the bars or restaurants and the staff worked extremely hard in very hot temperatures. Unfortunately we didn’t get all the names down and there are far too many to mention but a few are: Azza (hostess on main restaurant) who was there every day with a smile and looked after us well during our stay, Reda Ahmed who ran the Asian Restaurant very smoothly each morning for breakfast and always brought us drinks and looked after us where ever we came across him, and Kalim who made the eggs anyway you wanted each day. Ehab in the main restaurant who was great fun and always there with the drinks often before we knew we wanted another one and Ibrahim also main restaurant. Mohammed our cleaner in 6002 was great and kept us guessing daily with the amazing towel art, won’t spoil it! Staff in Splash & Waves Bars also, sorry didn’t get the names. We emailed the Hotel in advance to arrange transfers and someone was waiting for us on arrival. Check- in was very quick and smooth and there was a buggy to take us to our room. The hotel was full but coped well and seemed to absorb the people, only had a small queue to get into the restaurant in the evenings on 2 occasions. Adult pool was quiet, very clean and always plenty of sun loungers available. Main restaurant was busy at times with large Egyptian families but didn’t cause us a problem and there was always a variety of food and different themes, and my daughter, who is not very adventurous, always found something she liked to eat. We ate at the Italian restaurant free twice which was excellent and also at the Asian Restaurant which was super and both specially catered for our daughter’s nut allergy (organised by Reda Ahmed). The snorkelling at the hotel reef was amazing and different each time. We did several trips which were all brilliant – snorkelling and dive trip with Dive Club Sinai based at Hotel (Abdul is great), quad bike trip, water skiing and horse riding along the beach. There are a few shops outside the Hotel and Soho Square is a 5 minute walk, no hassle at either. We did have a few small problems in our room which I wouldn’t have mentioned and we had forgotten as they were resolved quickly, but I know there have been a few things mentioned by others on here. A problem with the sofa bed which was replaced almost immediately with a real bed for our daughter and the safe needed resetting after we messed it up which was also sorted quickly without problem after phoning reception. Otherwise, everything was great in the room and a nice size and quiet location. Thank you all for a great time – hope to see you again!

Great Hotel - Don't go in August!

This hotel is well situated in Sharks Bay. Short walk to the Shopping and Bar Complex of Soho Square. Our room was perfect! We were in the Deluxe Side and overlooked the pool. Always sunbeds available with umbrellas - no need to be up at the crack of dawn to secure a place unlike some other hotels we've stayed in. Pool areas always kept clean. Beach area great! Fantastic area for snorkelling or just swimming off the jetty. The On site Diving Company were really helpful. You can rent a snorkel and mask for free to see if you like it, before you buy one. Do the Boat trip to Tiran Island, it's good value and great for snorkelling or scuba diving! Why 'Don't Go In August'? Egyptian school holidays run May to September and this hotel is popular with Egyptians who work for Hilton and gain staff discount! I would say well over 80% of guests are Egyptian, and this made nighttime and meal times very noisy and chaotic! The hotel did provide a quieter dining area for breakfast in the Asian Restaurant and at night we used to use the restaurant in the Beach side hotel. Even the staff said come in September or October - and we will next time! Azza the restaurant greeter is fantastic, really friendly and helpful! The Entertainment Team is a joke - Very young, very loud and NOT very good! Had a body scrub and massage at on site Therapy Room - good value and wonderful treatment. This hotel has many plus points and good value for money - it is just the night time entertainment and dinner times that let it down!
