One of the 'first line' hotels in Sharm el Sheikh, the Shores Amphoras is a large complex on the sea front with all the facilities one looks for in a hotel, and then some. It can cater to pretty much any holiday-makers' needs whether they be friends, family, or couples. The hotel offers a wide range of possibilities in terms of food, accommodation and activities and is a well kept, well run establishment. You could do a lot worse if you are looking for a mid- to top-end place to stay in this part o the world.

    Location 8.0 /10

    The hotel enjoys a seafront location in the Hadaba, or Ras Um Sid zone of Sharm el Sheikh, meaning that there is no need to take a shuttle bus to the beach. The airport is around 13 miles from the hotel and Naama Bay, the adjacent zone is 5 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The exterior of the hotel, while extremely long, is rather low-key and modest. The circular lobby however, is anything but. Organised around a central gallery with steps leading down to the basement, the lobby is a hive of activity with its bar, computer access, seating areas, shopping strip (pharmacy, bank, photo shop, diving store, souvenirs, mini market, perfumes, jewellery) and terrace. Its size could be seen as not especially warm and welcoming however and it is true to say that it is not the brightest of spaces. Amphoras boasts six swimming pools to choose from, all of which are fresh water and feature a separate kids area. The beach pool boasts a rock formation and incorporated jacuzzi, as does another, the Palm Pool. For those wanting some peace and quiet, head to the Relax Pool. The river and waterfall linking the main pool to the one below it is a very reposing feature. Every pool has ample sun beds and shading and the buildings are never so close to the pools as to block out the sun too early in the day, with the exception perhaps of the Ceramic Pool, where the music can also be a little loud, if not frighteningly up-to-date. The hotel's eight-strong animation team provide a comprehensive program all day long, starting in the morning with activities including stretching and dancing on the beach or by the pool and a mini club for kids. In the afternoon why not compete in the sports tournaments or take some belly dancing lessons. A mini disco for kids in the evening precedes various shows and a quiz. The wellness centre, 'The Zen Zone', which is befitting of the hotel, consists of a well-equipped gym, with free weights, four nicely decorated massage rooms complete with showers, a sauna, a quite designer-looking hammam, an aerobics room and a squash court (one of the few in Sharm). Beauty treatments are also available. Table tennis, tennis, volleyball and water polo can all be played on the premises. Glory Zone is the hotel's night club, open between 11pm and 3am which is comparable to many clubs in Europe in terms of its sound system. It is beautifully decorated with modern oriental paintings and has plenty of room to dance. Entry is free. Room service, a limo service and a 24 hour doctor are also provided by the hotel. The complex is sizeable, there's no getting away from it, however walking from A to B is never a chore as the grounds are pretty and well kept.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    With almost 500 rooms on site and five types of rooms to choose from, you'll find an accommodation option to suit you. Standards are simply but tastefully appointed with jazzy bed linen and attractive wooden furniture. The balconies are of a decent size and are staggered from one to the next so that you are never right next to your neighbour. 14 of the standards have sea views. Bathrooms, which are not huge, but sufficient, are clean, have a decent shower cubicle, toiletries and hairdryer. The one and two bedroom chalets have a lounge area with television and sofas just next to the dining table and chairs for the impeccable kitchenette. Furniture throughout is made from a beautiful dark solid wood, while the bathrooms are no different to those in the standard rooms. The VIP rooms are slightly larger and come equipped with many extras such as LCD television, DVD player, tea and coffee, bathrobe and slippers and personal care products.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    One is spoilt for choice when it comes to dining at the Shores Amphoras. The 600-cover main restaurant, serves breakfast lunch and dinner has an array of international cuisine which changes on a weekly basis. However all guests are entitled to one free meal at either the Mermaid sea food restaurant or the Bella Vista Italian restaurant during their stay (choose from a set menu). Both of these provide a trendy and attractive setting in which to dine in the evening, especially if you decide to eat on the terrace with views out to the Red Sea. Both require a reservation 24 hours in advance and note that all drinks are chargeable. During the day you can snack on the beach thanks to the Cabana Bar, which is all inclusive. There is definitely no shortage of places to enjoy a drink at the Amphoras with a total of seven bars! Two of these are found next to a swimming pool (Palm and Splash) while another is in the lobby and a fourth, the Panorama Bar, is situated on the hotel's terrace where a show takes place three times a week. Layalina Bar is the shisha area which plays oriental music in the evening and in Coco Loco kids can enjoy the mini disco before the animation show takes place. The seventh bar is part of the Cabana bar on the beach, which closes at sunset.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The private beach is somewhat of a rocky affair, the sandy beach being up on the promontory above the water divided naturally into three distinct zones. Access to the water therefore is solely off the end of the jetty where the water is around 66ft deep. There are more than enough sun beds to go round and shading is no problem, although one of the three zones is more cramped than the others. As well as the Cabana snack bar, there is a diving centre but no water sports facilities.

    To know

    The Emerald Club Lounge is the VIP area of the hotel. The club is a warm, cosy space with all the home comforts such as television, DVD player and a collection films, tea and coffee, leather sofas, rugs?Here, under the mood lighting, you can take five meals a day all of which come from the Mermaid restaurant (see below). It is a place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the hotel for those who have booked this option with their travel agent or tour operator. VIP guests also have their own section of the beach with private bar.

      The Ritz Carlton is a luxury hotel offering quality services in relaxing and carefully designed surroundings. The atmosphere is a little bit cold and the lack of a real beach is a distinct disadvantage.

      One of two sister hotels right next to one another, the Dreams Beach Resort is a large complex right on the Red Sea. The hotel is fairly basic in terms of its quality but does have all the facilities to ensure an enjoyable family break. Offering great choice, buckets of space and a great beach, this hotel would suit those families looking for a lively atmosphere looking to get away for a week or so.

      Despite its name claiming the contrary, this hotel is not enormous, but in fact is just the right size if you are a couple coming away for a relaxing week away from the UK. It offers peace and quiet as well as all round good service and is of a decent size when taking into consideration the number of rooms in this hotel. A sound choice for your Sharm break.

      Quaint, quiet and compact. That's the Sharm Inn Amarein in a nut shell. This unassuming little hotel proves that very often good things do indeed come in small packages. It offers a lot for a hotel of its size and is one of the best little hotels in the area. If you're looking to get away for a week as a couple and want peace and quiet and a wide choice of activities then this is the place for you.

      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.

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.

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.

      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!
