The exterior of the Ocean Club speaks volumes about what is to be found beyond the front door. The underwhelming, one-storey building didn't inspire us with much confidence and we were not wholly off the mark. Yes, the lobby of fitted out in marble, but the colours, both of the stone and the furniture, are dull and there is nothing to lift the place up. Through the other end of the lobby is the smaller of the hotel's two swimming pools which has one for children attached to it. Only a few sun beds are placed at one end of the pool (this may have been due to the planned works) although due to the low lying accommodation surrounding the pool, you can enjoy a full day's sun bathing in peace and quiet. The other, larger rectangular pool at the back of the hotel has ample space and sun beds for the number of guests staying at the hotel although the setting and lack of atmosphere is disappointing. Just next to the main pool is the renowned diving centre, a favourite in Sharm el Sheikh. All the training is done on the premises before the students are taken out to sea. The hotel has a small, ordinary health club with sauna, plunge pool, steam room, jacuzzi and massage services. There is no gym facility. Two shows are put on every week during a barbeque, the first being a fire show (Mongolian Barbeque) and the other is a traditional Egyptian dance show (local barbeque). The wifi service in the hotel is free but unreliable and the cost for using the PCs is a reasonable 10EGP for one hour. There is a doctor on call 24hours and a cash machine in the lobby. There general condition of the hotel is pretty average, with a lot of uncared for lawns and badly painted surfaces etc, although this may well have been corrected during the month of renovation. Much more could be done to liven the place up for example installing modern furniture and fittings and sprucing up the green areas with bright plants. While perfectly willing when asked, the staff aren't overly active.
