    Location 8.55 /10

    The distance to the Sharm El Sheikh airport amounts 3 km and 15 km to downtown Naama Bay.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The resort comprises 284 rooms of different categories (standard, family, connected and triple rooms) spread across the resort in various 2 level non-descript buildings. All have terraces or balconies. The rooms are fairly spacious with good views of either the pool or desert. For guests wishing to be left in peace and quiet, it is best to request a room towards the back of the resort facing the desert. The rooms are otherwise all decorated in the same way, which could do with a revamp. The safe is free of charge but it is extra to have the fridge filled. All bathrooms are equipped with showers (no bath tubs) and have a good range of own-brand toiletries.

    Overview 5.70 /10

    Opened in 2004, the resort is actually fairly small, especially in comparison to its sister hotels (View and Tirana Aquapark). The resort lobby is a little dark and its low ceilings give it a crowded feel. Towards the lobby bar there is a television area with a huge home cinema system where football games are often shown, along with pool tables and table football. It is very noisy as the lobby bar, canteen and reception noise all mingles together. The staff are however very welcoming. There are two pools and a children's pool, all three of which connect. The gardens are green and well maintained. The resort has a very well-equipped gym and the spa is relaxing, where there is a good view of the gardens from the Egyptian bath. There is also a steam room and sauna like in most resorts in the area which cost extra. The gym however is free.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    The resort has 3 different restaurants, 4 bars and a café. The 'All-Inclusive' service offers you all meals and beverages (some exceptions where there is an extra charge). The main restaurant, the Italian à la carte restaurant, the Gizera barbecue bar, the lobby bar, pool bar and beach snack bar (over at the Sunrise Island View side). One meal at one of the à la carte restaurants is included in the all-inclusive deal.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The hotel's beach is shared with Sunrise Island View Resort. It is quite a small size beach, but the coral here makes for fantastic snorkelling. There are two short jetties giving direct and good access to the Red Sea's treasures. The parasols are well organised so that the space is well used so that although from above the beach may look crowded by parasols, underneath it's actually quite spacious and not too cramped. As in most Sharm resorts the sea is extremely shallow until it drops on the other side of the reef which is good for exploring the depths of the ocean and for swimming, but not so versatile for kids or for beach dwellers.

    To know

    Formerly the Maxim Resort and the Garden Resort, the Sunrise Island Garden opened in 2004 and has 294 rooms. There are two other Sunrise hotels in Sharm el Sheikh : the nearby Sunrise Island View and the Sunrise Tirana Aquapark in Nabq Bay. The resort also has many activities on offer, such as the ?Nemo? Kids Club with playground (at the Sunrise Island View), health club with gym, beach volleyball, football, table tennis, 2 tennis courts in good shape (flood light against charge), billiard, petanque, darts, aerobics, and water-aerobics. Some of these activities will have a charge; the best is to check with your tour operator for what is included in your package. The hotel also has a small parade of shops at the entrance within the complex.

      More of a hotel than a resort, the Sofitel Sharm el Sheikh is definitely in our top 5 in the area. The standard here is superior to that of most resorts in Sharm el Sheikh. The atmosphere is calm and ideal for couples or guests looking for peace and quiet. The highlight of the hotel is its Horizon Bar which overlooks Naama Bay and its equestrian centre. The Sofitel may be one of the oldest hotels in Sharm el Sheikh, but the other resorts have a lot to learn from this establishment.

      It is true to say that the Coral Hills is by no means one of the top hotels in Sharm el Sheikh, however there is something immensely likeable about the place. It may be the intimacy of the place; it could be the small touches likes the swan towel sculptures on the beds or maybe even the enthusiasm of the staff. Whatever it is, easyvoyage.co.uk would recommend this small hotel for those looking for a quieter getaway mixed in with activities down at the beach.

      At the heart of Naama Bay, the hotel enjoys a pleasant location, but offers little comfort in a small facility. Simple but friendly, this facility is recommended for small budgets.

      Of an imposing size, the Reef Oasis is an establishment located closest to the underwater natural park of Ras Mohammed. It is ideally suited to families wanting to be entertained (the hotel has nearly 40 animators) and athletes who wish to have an active vacation.

      Located along the coast in Naama Bay, the Marriott Beach was one of the first hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. Opened in 1996, this hotel offers its customers many water sports and the opportunity to bask on the beach. The facilities make for comfortable and quality services. An ideal hotel in which to relax or practice sports.

      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.

      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!
