Good value - nice beach. close to town.

Posted Feb 12, 2017
Pros: Breakfast was good - but the best part of the hotel is the Indian Restaurant. It is excellent and a great location with balcony with great views.
Cons: Staff trained to be more friendly to tourists. They seemed to be low motivated except for the room cleaner that was very energetic and good.
Location: Great location at end of walk way that will take you to main part of town. Also on a hill that overlooks sea.
Due to low occupancy at this time, it appears some maintenance is left undone around the facilities such as lights out, disrepair of walls around complex, etc. One thing that made me mad was that I asked the concierge to call a taxi and he said he did but found out 30 minutes later as I was getting into a full sized van was that they don't allow taxis in thus I had to use over priced trip to airport provided by hotel van. Problem was if he had told me earlier would have been no problem but felt like he tried to deceive us. Anyway got mad and walked out front gate and found a taxi at bottom of the hill waiting which was 20% of the cost the hotel van wanted to charge. If they would have been upfront it would not have been such a problem even though I still think it is a poor policy.

Best hotel in Sharm!

Posted Feb 3, 2017
Pros: The hotel's beauty center, try massage performed by local specialists: good quality at relatevily low rates!
Location: Walk and visit restaraunts and cafes along your way to the center and back! They are very cheap and good!
This is my third stay in Movenpick (former Sofitel) and hopefully not the last one! First, the location. It takes 15-20 minutes to get the center of Sharm-esh-Sheikh, althouhg the property located aside the local civilization area, in a discrete corner of Naama Bay on the beach (four beaches with fantasic coral riff along). Second, the style which is both traditional and pleasant to my eye. Third, menagement and personnel. A good combination of Swiss brand standard with local temperamento that you should study and adopt along the whole stay! I miss that now!

We will definitely stay again!

Posted Jan 18, 2017
Pros: Quiet. Beach and blue water. Food was excellent. Room was comfortable. Service was quick. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Cons: Can't think of a thing.
Location: It's a 30 minute walk to downtown area where there are many restaurants, clubs, etc. The reception desk can get you a taxi to just about anywhere!
What a wonderful stay we had at the Movenpick. All the staff was extremely friendly and helped us in any way they could. We are studying Arabic and they were most happy to help us practice! We only went to the Liwa restaurant because the food there was so good there was no need to go anywhere else. There was a buffet for every meal and may I suggest the Um Ali for dessert! Yummy! We took advantage of the spa facilities while there and enjoyed a honeymoon massage and a few facials. The prices were great and the experience was wonderful. Kudos to the entire staff at the Spa and Beauty Center for their practice and hospitality. The beaches (there are 4 private) were very clean and peaceful. A great place to get away and relax. The snorkeling was amazing with all the fish and the coral. I wasn't going to go in because the water was quite chilly, but I could see colorful fish from just ankle deep and that was all i needed to brave the cold! The beach itself was beautiful - the water was clear and blue and the staff there drags the beach each day so the sand is smooth under your feet in the morning. Great job. My husband and I are early risers, so we didn't take advantage of the entertainment at the Zeno lounge, but if you are a late bird and enjoy a Shisha, it is the place for you. The entertainment staff is super friendly and does a great job of keeping you informed of the days activities. I hope I didn't miss anything, but to sum it all up...I would highly recommend it!

Great and very convenient location. Very close to

Posted Dec 31, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: Air condition and ensure rooms are protected from mosquitoes
Everything was ok except the air conditions in the room. The A/C was not working proper in the room. The mosquitoes ate us up during the first 5 nights however, and after complaining, the room was sprayed and hence made the last night stay at the resort the most comfortable one.

Rude and arrogant staff

Posted Dec 29, 2016
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Location: Nothing close to hotel, it is quite isolated
Staff were awful! Forced me to pay considerable extra for the room at check in due to a minor booking error with Expedia. Expedia did the right thing and refunded the extra but it never should have been charged. Staff were rude and unapologetic. Other staff in hotel also lazy and unhelpful. The bathroom stunk and the room was small. Hotel restaurants over priced with poor food, breakfast buffet was boring and limited in variety. Go somewhere, anywhere else!!

Fabulous stay and would stay again!

Posted Nov 19, 2016
Pros: Customer service, rooms, beaches, food, shisha
Cons: The entertainment staff and spa staff could sometimes be very pushy when you just wanted to sit back and relax.
Location: We went diving which was very good.
We had such a wonderful time here. The driver was at the airport on time and very helpful with all of our bags. We were allowed to get into our hotel room early due to our flight arriving early and loved the feel and decor of the room. We also enjoyed having a balcony view of the sea! The food variety was fabulous and so fresh. The drinks were great and the shisha was amazing!! The staff was incredible from start to finish. They worked to get to know you and try and make the experience personal for you. Note about the spa, get a facial!! It was INCREDIBLE!! I would recommend this to couples, families, or groups of friends for sure!
