Sheraton Soma BayPosted May 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our family visited for a five day vacation from the chaos of Cairo. It was a wonderful stay with friendly staff and tons for the family to do. They had snorkeling, glass bottom boats, pristine waters, an excellent swimming pool, activities every night, an amazing massage experience at their spa... we could go on and on. We will be visiting againin the future. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Soma Bay at the Sheraton.

Superb HolidayPosted Mar 7, 2012
Pros: Our balcony looked out over the gardens to the turquoise sea and mountains beyond
Cons: Expensive evening buffet
Location: Unspoilt secluded resort, beautiful location
Stunning hotel and helpful staff although has the slightly impersional feeling of a large multi national hotel chain. Definitely worth paying extra for a sea view room as the view is magical. Breakfast buffet is fantastic. They do a great smoked salmon eggs benedict! Food in the restaurants is expensive. Evening buffet is €40 for all you can eat 3 courses but you can actually just have 1 or 2 courses which is cheaper although this is not advertised. Strangley the a la carte menu is quite reasonable. Room service is fast and cheap. Still and sparkling mineral water is completely free all day which is lovely. Breakers Hotel next door does a delicious buffet, 3 courses for €25 but you have to pay for water there. Soma Bay is a very secluded unspoilt resort of only 4 hotels, a golf course and a small marina for dive boats. Guests when we stayed were mostly retired Europeans playing golf. You certainly escape from the hassle of haggling traders here. The hotel transfer was €40 and was excellent. It's a 45 min drive from the airport. The hotel rep met us straight off the plane with visas and saved us queuing like everyone else. There is a super beach and diving or snorkelling on the house reef with Orca Dive Centre is first rate. We saw turtles, moray eels, lion fish, all a short swim from the Maldives-style jetty. Dive boats leave twice daily from the marina to other reefs. All in all a wonderful holiday.

A relaxing getawayPosted Jan 29, 2012 on Hotels.com
Hotel staff was extremely polite, helpful and friendly. Food was not good all the time. Perfect location for a true relaxing vacation away from noise and night life is quite limited.

Good home reefPosted Dec 2, 2009
Real problem: communications - wifi internet connection does not reach all hotel areas nor even all rooms. GSM/GPRS mobile phone connection is weak
