Although it appears to be a little old at first glance, this unpretentious hotel has many facilities to satisfy its customers and its beach has a very good spot for scuba diving.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The hotel is about four miles from the airport and six miles from the tourist centre of Naama Bay.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The rooms are simply decorated in orange and blue shades. They are not very spacious but are all equipped with television, a safe, individual air-conditioning, a minibar and a balcony equipped with garden furniture. The bathroom, simple but pretty, has a bathtub and bathrobes. A small lounge is composed of a low table and chairs.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Built in 1999, the hotel's green and white tones are quite harmonious but some of its areas are a little outdated and vegetation is quite sparse. A very large marble reception welcomes holiday-makers staying mostly on an all inclusive basis. Seven two-storey buildings form the ensemble of accommodation. The hotel has four swimming pools, more or less silent, including one offering a water slide for children and a water polo goal for adults. There is also a mini golf course, a climbing wall and a Tyrolean traverse rope to entertain clients.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The main restaurant, spread over two floors, can accommodate up to 500 people at once. In a simple but imacculate setting, a sizeable buffet offers a wide variety of international and traditional Egyptian dishes. For guests staying on an all inclusive basis, the hotel offers a wide choice of soft drinks. For a change to the traditional Sharm buffet, four à la carte restaurants serve at lunchtime or in the evening, each with a different ambience. An Italian restaurant is located beside the main pool, while a seafood restaurant and two snack bars are also available.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The beach stretches along 721ft at the foot of the hotel. Equipped with many deckchairs and sunshades, it hosts a centre for water sports and diving. Water sports are not permitted in order to protect the coral reef and the wildlife in this beautiful place. A drop of over 33ft in the sea allows scuba diving directly in front of the hotel. Thanks to a floating pontoon, you can cross over the coral reef and two walkways allow you to reach the water directly from the beach.

    To know

    The hotel guests are predominantly Russian. Our advice about accommodation: the rooms starting with the number 3 are the closest to the sea and relatively quiet, compared to the rest of the hotel.

      • Location 3.0

      Smaller than most resorts in the area, the Al Diwan is a pleasant establishment to spend a few days. It does feel a little isolated from the rest of Sharm el Sheikh and the music around the main pool can be a bit loud even in the rooms. The accommodation, although functional needs renovating.

      • Location 7.0

      The Sierra Savoy is the Savoy's version of a resort. Although fairly modern and well maintained, guests should not expect a luxury establishment. The site is fairly small so most of the nightlife happens in neighbouring Soho Square which makes for lively evenings during busy periods.

      The Domina Gardenia Plaza is an ideal resort for guests looking to sunbathe around a pool and even then there are so much nicer places to stay at within the same price range. With its beach 25 minutes away, a serious lack of atmosphere and a need for refurbishment, this resort is at the bottom of our list.

      • Location 8.0

      A very well organised resort with extremely pretty gardens containing pleasant water features, and villa-like accommodation buildings giving the establishment a village feel, despite the rooms and bathrooms needing a renovation. The beach is a short walk away across the gardens and the sea is ideal for snorkelling although it can get a little crowded. The highlight of the resort is the wonderful views of the Red Sea from the beach Fatima Restaurant.

      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.

      This gargantuan complex is quite simply in a class of its own. You can take any aspect of the hotel, its rooms, its spa, its eateries, its views or its staff and you'll find everything is top draw. If it is top of the range you are after for in Sharm then you can't go far wrong in choosing the Royal Oasis, perfect for couples and families looking for the very best in service and facilities in a setting to die for.

      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.

      One of the classier outfits in Sharm el Sheikh, the Royal Grand Sharm offers the complete package to guests looking for that little bit extra from their hotel. Perky staff, a beautifully kept environment and convivial atmosphere make this a natural choice for both couples and families. This mid- to high-end establishment is extremely comfortable and is recommended wholly by Easyvoyage.

      • Location 8.54

      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!
