The Amway Oyoun, previously a Hilton Hotel, sets itself apart from many of the shoddy resorts found in the area due to its fairly good quality finish. On the beach, the site is fairly big, but the atmosphere remains calm and relaxing.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The resort is located in Nabq Bay, a five minute drive from Sharm el Sheikh Airport.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    All rooms have either a terrace pr balcony. The mini fridge is filled upon request and at an extra cost. Guests receive complimentary water bottles every week (otherwise glasses of water are free from all bars and restaurants). The rooms are spacious and the furniture and décor are tasteful. The bathrooms are equipped with Amway branded toiletries and complimentary slippers and bathrobes at the guest's request. The beds are comfortable. It is clear that an effort has been made when it comes to interior decoration. There are also rooms with sea views available upon request at the time of booking.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The good quality finish of the hotel sets it apart from many resorts in the area. The Amway Oyoun was one of the most pleasant hotels we visited in Nabq Bay. The drive to the main building is fairly long and is lined by newly-built villas due to open at the end of 2010. The hotel currently has 304 rooms. The lobby is tastefully decorated. Outside towards the main pool area, green gardens separate the bright orange three-floor accommodation buildings from the pool area. This helps create an illusion of space. The beach is just on the other side of the pool which means a walk to the beach is a mile long journey every time. Although the resort has managed to maintain a calm relaxed atmosphere, some guests may find the large orange buildings imposing.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The resort has a main restaurant offering buffet style meals and two à la carte restaurants. For guests wanting a little variation in the buffet menu, there is an Italian and a Seafood restaurant where one meal is included in the all-inclusive formula (to be booked a day in advance). The restaurants can get a little crowded and noisy.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    Guests will find the beach close to the main pool which is not to be taken for granted! It is not unusual to have to walk at least a mile across the resort before reaching the beach or to have to take a shuttle bus. The beach is clean and well kempt. The jetty leading to the coral for snorkelling fans is only 350m long, giving almost direct access. The beach is wide and sandy. The water is shallow close to the shore.

    To know

    The hotel originally opened as a Hilton, was then taken over by the Millennium chain and became an Amwaj Hotel early 2009. The chain is also opening a second hotel in neighbouring area, Hurghada in summer 2010. Amway is otherwise a Jordanian chain. Smoking is not permitted indoors. The health club has good facilities such as a good range of treatments but it could do with a renovation and a thorough clean, to match the rest of the hotel's interiors-we noticed missing shelves, dirty finger marks and dirty laundry during our visit. There is also a very basic ?quiet pool' across the car park out of the main lobby for guests looking for intimacy.

      Club Magic Life is by far one of the best resorts we have reviewed in Nabq Bay. Not too big, extremely green and with good quality facilities, Brits may be phased by the German invasion here, but if after peace and quiet with good food and a good beach, in a good quality establishment then this one's for you!

      The Tropicana Grand Azure, not to be confused with its sister hotel across the road (the Tropicana Azure Club), is a large complex on the beach. The outdoor areas are very pleasant as is the beach. There is a generally relaxed atmosphere that is well suited to families and groups of friends.

      • Location 3.51

      A surprisingly very attractive resort with all the amenities a guest should expect from a holiday in the sun. Whilst retaining the Egyptian touch, the Laguna Vista Beach resort is elegant and relaxing whilst staying extremely varied in its bars and places for guests to relax, giving the area a real village feel. One of the most, if not the most attractive resort we have visited, the Laguna Vista Beach is definitely in our top 5.

    • El Hayat Resort El Hayat Resort El Hayat Resort
      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 7.04
      • Location 4.0

      A friendly hotel designed to combine Ancient Egyptian architecture with contemporary design. The only resort in Sharm el Sheikh which can claim to look Egyptian is El Hayat. Fun yet could be seen as slightly cheesy, the designers here have taken the temple concept to new heights! On two levels, the resort feels a little cramped for sunbathing and it is not on the beach. El Hayat makes for a nice stay in Sharm but can feel a little claustrophobic due to the buildings being close to the pools, thus not leaving much open space.

      The Oriental Resort is a relaxing version of a large resort. Its gardens divide up the large concrete buildings making the stay more pleasant. There is a spa worth mentioning for its high quality treatments and good organisation. The Oriental is ideal for a week-long stay with the family or a group of friends. Couples may be seeking a little more peace and intimacy.

      Very small and intimate, the Laguna Vista Garden is perfect to get away from it all. Guests stay in quaint round private villas planted around a green flowery garden. More of a hotel than a resort, the Laguna Vista Garden is ideal for couples or families looking to spend some quality time together relaxing around the pool.

      The Jaz Belvedere Hotel is easily one of Sharm el Sheikh best quality resorts. With its beautiful interiors and very well maintained exteriors, the Belvedere is more of a hotel than a resort. Directly on the beach, the hotel is small enough to retain intimacy and large enough not to feel claustrophobic after a week. The Belvedere is definitely one of our favourites.

Perky staff, a beautifully kept environment and convivial atmosphere make this a natural choice for both couples and families.

      An all-round good quality hotel compared to most hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. The extension of the Hilton Shark's Bay is neat and well maintained and is separate from the original part of the resort. There is also nothing Egyptian about the place; one could be anywhere in the world. This part of the hotel lacks in atmosphere but is relaxing and guests are guaranteed a fairly good quality room.

      The Oriental Rivoli is without doubt one of the classiest hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. Its sumptuous decoration must be the finest in the resort and all of its services exude quality, from its staff to its food. Best suited for couples or groups of friends, due to its lack of animation or a kids club, it is the perfect place for relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation. Recommended whole-heartedly by Easyvoyage!
