The entrance to the Grand Sharm is one of the more modest in Sharm, although that is not necessarily telling on the hotel's overall quality. The small lobby has a seating area just to the left as you walk in with the reception facing you at the end of the hall. The hotel has two swimming pools. The main one, Laguna, is surrounded by accommodation blocks but they are not so close that they block the sun, even as it is dipping. The surrounds are quiet, with no music except for the cheers of water polo players. It is in the main pool that the kids' pool is also found. The other newer pool, which is heated, has a fantastic sea view as well as chill out music making for the perfect place to unwind. There is a bar too which descends into the water. The terrace just next to the pool is used during winter for lunches and to the other side of the pool is a rather precarious looking kids play area. Both pools have generous amounts of space for sunbathing and plenty of sun beds are at your disposal. While the hotel does not have a wellness centre, it does offer massages around the main pool and there is a beauty salon on the premises. Wednesday and Saturday nights are karaoke nights while on Monday there is an oriental dance show. On days where no show takes place, the disco bar, with its terrace with mountains views, stays open until late. If you're feeling active then you can choose between table tennis, tennis, basketball, pool or volleyball (on the beach). Wifi and PCs with internet are available at the cost of 20EGP for 30 minutes and a limo service is also offered (prices at reception). There is a pharmacy and bank on the premises. The hotel is generally well kept and in good condition with the architecture typically Egyptian with large arches which frame the windows and doors. Although the place is very green, some parts are overgrown and dry and some bright flowers wouldn't go amiss to liven the grounds up a little.
