Pleasant hotel across from the beach ...
Posted Oct 23, 2015
The picture originally shown on the booking was for the Marriot hotel overlooking the beach (we stayed in the Mountain View), but nevertheless it was nice as within walking distance (less than 5 minutes or so). The hotel was a little dated but I guess that's what you get in these third world countries. A majority of the staff were very helpful, including the cleaners, security and pool staff. The staff behind the bar were not equally as helpful and the food at the bar was not that great. In general the Marriot food was nice as mostly a buffet. The pool was clean on most days however could have done with better/regular maintenance. Would recommend this hotel as nice proximity to most key places. Hotel also had an animation team, who were around average; and some good shows were organised. We stayed in a 5* hotel in Dubai the year before and even though this was 5*, it felt like a world apart! But as they say with most things, you have to make the best of any situation; life is to short.
There is plenty of hotels to choose from in Sharm and mostly they are as much as much, this hotel is both good for the family or friends; had a pleasant vibe./
