When I was planning a trip to Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt in 2021, I could not help but return to the hotel that we loved so much in 2020, about which I wrote as many as 4 reviews 🙂
We arrived early because I really wanted to be here as soon as possible, but we were immediately checked-in. The room turned out to be the same as last year: cozy and very comfortable.
The good point was its location – on the line closest to the main building.
If you need silence in the evenings, and you go to bed early, then it is better to choose rooms further, because the music is heard well in the room in the evenings. And another disadvantage of this location is that there is no privacy on the balcony: both neighbors and those who go down the stairs see you.
But this location has its advantages too – the proximity to the reception and restaurants, as well as the proximity to the SPA (which was our goal this time 🙂 ).
I will not tell bout room details, as everything was the same as last year and the cleaning was excellent. I’ll just point out a small detail: be sure to take beach towels from your room with you, because on the beach they will not give them to you, but you will get only covered your lounger with large towels.
And yes, this year we really missed signs of attention from the hotel, like last time: they never brought any compliment to our room 🙂
In 2020, due to the terrible heat, we did not get to the SPA, but this time we immediately ran there. At the beginning of October 2021, in order to visit the SPA zone (free for hotel guests), it was necessary make an appointment in advance (we did it literally an hour before the visit).
There are 2 SPA zones: for boys and girls separately. The duration of the session is 30 minutes. At this time, you are alone in the SPA area and you have at your disposal:
– a dressing room with a locker, where you can find comfortable rubber slippers and a bathrobe
– a small seating area with a tea set, water
– a small sauna (good temperature, it even seemed to me very hot on the top shelf)
– and a small outdoor jacuzzi
After visiting the SPA area, it was pleasant to spend time around the small outdoor pool by the SPA. It was quiet and very good there.
The beach and sea are the same with great service. This time in the sea we even managed to meet the big Napoleon and other big fish for the first time in these places.
There were already more people on the beach than last year, but the service was good, and we were especially delighted by the beach employee, who constantly was bringing the treats for guests, wiped glasses and splashed water.
There was always a full house around the pool and there were a lot of guests, but the atmosphere was still the same, especially thanks to the excellent staff, we remember them from last year’s visit.
The territory is still beautiful, and it is very pleasant to walk, despite the large number of stairs The funicular worked during the day for those who do not like to walk everywhere, as we do 🙂
I will tell you about the food in a separate part of my review, as there is a lot of interesting information.
