Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 8.0 /10

    The resort is in Shark's Bay, 3 km away from the airport and 15 km to downtown Naama Bay. One of the area's main upcoming shopping areas, Soho Square, is also within walking distance. Soho Square can be quite lively in the evenings, especially as the Sierra Savoy (all-inclusive addition to the Savoy chain) frequently works with the shopping centre's bars and restaurants. The Sunrise Island View is also a first line hotel; it is therefore on the beach front, so no shuttle bus is needed.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The resort comprises 492 rooms in different categories (standard, family, junior suite, executive). The accommodations are spread across the resort in various 2 level buildings resembling villas which gives the resort a village feel. However inside the rooms can be a little dark due to the lack of natural light especially on the bottom floors. The rooms are non-descript; the style is functional and a little dated. There is nothing particularly Egyptian about this resort either. The rooms have all the expected facilities such as a television (old generation) with several different language channels, a fridge (which can be filled at an extra cost upon request) and a free safe. The bathrooms need a renovation. The hotel has a good range of own brand toiletries.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Sunrise Island View is part of a chain of three hotels in Sharm el Sheikh: the Sunrise Aquapark in Nabq Bay and the Sunrise Island Garden. The best of the three is the resort we are reviewing here (Sunrise Island View) due to the way smooth manner in which the hotel seems to run. It is a very popular resort so guests must make sure to book a year ahead. The Resort offers different kinds of wellness and sport activities. Like in most hotels in the area, there are daily changing entertainment and sports program as well as evening shows in the amphitheatre. The resort has several activities on offer: Nemo Kids Club with playground, health club with gym, beach volleyball, football, table tennis, 2 tennis courts (flood light against charge), billiard, petanque, darts, aerobics, and water-aerobics.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Ultra All Inclusive service offers guests all meals, beverages including imported spirits (according to the market availability) 24 hours daily. The Sunrise Island Garden has three restaurants; the main restaurant, the White Knight, the à la carte Italian La Trattoria and the beach restaurant, ?Fatima'. There is also the beach snack bar, pool bar, terrace bar, the Victoria bar, and the Hollywood café. The Fatima restaurant is well worth a visit for its stunning views over the turquoise waters of the Red Sea - do make sure you book 3 to 4 days ahead as a table here is very sought after by other guests.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The hotel's beach is a short walk through the resort's very well maintained green gardens. 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 cramped. As in most Sharm resorts the sea is extremely shallow until it drops on the other side of the reef.

      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.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
