Made up of peach-coloured blocks separated by palm-lined pathways, the Club Magic Life Sharm El Sheikh Imperial has a village mentality. At the centre of things, you’ll find two curvy swimming pools, edged by loungers and glossy palms. Plus, there’s a bar churning out umbrella-clad cocktails nearby.
On the dining front, the All Inclusive offering is slicker than your average. For starters, the buffet restaurant serves up around-the-world favourites, and lays on regular themed nights.
Location-wise, this place has clinched a spot right on the beach, so it’s perfect if you love spending time on the sand. And if you fancy a change of scene, the hotel’s shuttle bus will whisk you to Naama Bay in around 15 minutes.

We have just returned from an 11 night holiday to one of the best hotels we have stayed in. We are very well travelled global tourists so know what to expect. We were not disappointed. This was my first time in Egypt (my husband had been on a diving holiday before) and I was totally blow away. The hotel is fantastic. The grounds are amazingly beautiful and very well kept. We were in block 14 had a junior suite which was very spacious and a wonderful view - peaceful cup of tea ay 6.00 am listening to the birds while the family slept! The staff EVERYWHERE were amazing - a shout out to Mahmood who is the lifeguard on the jetty, the towel man (didn't catch his name but lovely) and Alber (Mr Bean) who kept me topped up with my cocktails at night! Yes the hotel was quiet - and this TOTALLY made our holiday - no rushing for sunbeds or the usual barging at the buffet!!!! This was a break for us as a family and for me to recover from an illness with totally relaxation and it suppassed that totally. We would have no hesitation in going back to this hotel and recommending to all. I am not going to put any of our photos on - you will just have to go there and experience how fab it is!More
Brilliant, relaxed holiday:)
First time to Egypt and Sharm and was warned off going with just my 13 year old daughter. But thank god I didn't listen too much. The hotel welcome was warm and we were immediately given a choice of rooms, ended up in block 14 which was ideal for us two ladies with enough room, good outlook over gardens and a good sized bathroom and balcony. The choice of restaurants was super and the effort made by the hotel for each different theme night in the main buffet restaurant was great. Malek in the buffet restaurant looked after us from the moment we arrived as did most of the other staff. Was also great to have to option to sit inside or out depending on the heat. The pool was clean with plenty of room and sunloungers (though I guess as the hotel wasnt busy we didn't get a true picture), the gardens were beautifully kept and the bars were plentiful too. The Spa guys were slightly annoying but if you stand firm the first time they speak to you they won't pester you. There is daily entertainment if you want to get involved or you have the option of the relax pool to escape this but we liked the bigger pool and the lovely bar in the middle of the bridges for a afternoon cocktail or two!!! I'm struggling to think of anything much to moan about. Us two ladies felt very safe and I would most definitely return again to this wonderful hotel.More

Not what I expected
From what I can make out Magic Life is a German equivalent of Club Med, however it nowhere reaches the same level. The hotel is pleasant to look at and on the "outside" looks very good, however I would say it has a number of issues which at the end of the day ruin the overall experience and hence my rating. I guess the first thing to note is that the hotel was probably only running at about 30% occupancy, if even that, going by the number of seats in the restaurants and loungers around the pool and on the beach, and this may actually be detrimental as there may be lower staff numbers etc. to run the place. Pros: 1. Room was good, stayed in a junior suite and there was more than enough room for my family (2 adults, 2 children) 2. Check-in - very efficient, no issues 3. Pool - main pool is very large, and with there being minimal people in the resort there was no fighting over loungers around the pool 4. Staff in the restaurant are excellent, very attentive, quickly clearing away your used dishes and making sure you have a drink in your hand 5. Night time entertainment - staff entertainment can always be corny but that is half the fun. They did have a professional dance troupe on one of the nights I was there - they where very good. Cons 1. Food selection - after one week the food became very much same-same in feeling. Large salad bar and a number of food stations with some dishes of food. Seemed to rotate around similar food/dishes 2. Specialty Restaurants - we only ate in the Thai Restaurant, and it certainly wasn't Thai food, well certainly Thai food as I know it. Put me off trying the other restaurants, although I'm sure the Egyptian food would have been fine. 3. Pool Bar Service - could be extremely slow, even with the low number of people in the resort 4. Apparently if you book tours outside of the resident tour groups, the buses picking you up cannot enter the hotel grounds - let me see, you want to rip me off on your prices for the same tour I, as a seasoned traveler, can book on-line for about 15% cheaper!!!!! This meant that my family and I had to walk out to the security gate every time we went on a tour - including the early morning pick-up we had for our trip to Luxor. 5. ABUSIVE STAFF - I WAS BASICALLY CALLED A "F%$KING A$%EHOLE" IN FRONT OF MY FAMILY, IN A ROUNDABOUT WAY, BY THE OWNER OF THE PAPYRUS ART SHOP BECAUSE I DIDN'T BUY ANYTHING FROM HIM. STILL WAITING ON A REPLY FROM MY TOUR OPERATOR ON THAT ONE. We had bought stuff from other shops in small shopping strip, and had looked in his shop, but found something better when we where in Luxor - he obviously didn't like that!!!!!! 6. Continuous hassle from massage therapists - you are going to be continuously hassled by the massage therapists if you look as if you need, or may want, a massage - my suggestion, be pretty blunt with them on day one other wise you will be bugged every day. 7. WiFi - rip off prices for the WiFi for a week. In my opinion hotels charge enough for their service and WiFi should be included. There is slow, free WiFi, in the internet cafe. My suggestion - rent one of the many portable WiFi devices you can get from many of the tour operators - you then have WiFi wherever you go in Egypt, and it costs less than half the price for 1 week :-D Overall, my kids enjoyed their holiday, but we wouldn't choose to go back to Magic Life if we where to visit Sharm el Sheikh again.More

Good winter break
A little late reviewing this, visited in November 2013, but as I've just booked to return I thought I'd post a review. Lovely complex, extremely well maintained, very well spread out. Food in the main restaurant was very good, of course like any buffet you are up and down like a yoyo and you have to watch your table is cleared in the meantime. Tip: We left napkins on the chairs when we went for our next course, this seemed to do the trick. The Mediterranean was my favourite of the a la cartes, though did not try the Egyptian. The coffee bar in the tower was very good, great service and lovely cakes. The snorkelling off of the pier was tremendous, and along with all of the other qualities of CML, is one of the main reasons we are returning. The chap at the end of the pier is very helpful with mask clearer and safety advice. Was only closed for one day whilst we were there due to sea conditions etc. There is normally a current flowing, so depending on the time of day may be flowing in different directions. You should normally initially explore against the current, as it is then easier to return to the pier if you get tired. Tip: The snorkelling available around Tiran Island on the 'VIP Cruise' is really no better than at the hotel. We would not do the cruise again as CML is almost at the far northern end of the hotel coach pickups, so you end up spending 60-90 minutes each way on a coach to only go a few miles to the boat dock. Also did a couple of (the easier) cycle trips, as per previous reviewers the area inland of the hotel is a bit bleak with quite a number of half abandoned developments, however a cycle or walk along the promenade path was good. Rooms were pretty good, yes I could say that some aspects of them were a bit tired or out of fashion (black ash finish MDF wardrobes and dressing tables anyone?) but from our first floor location near the quiet pool the accommodation was more than adequate and the bed comfortable. Tip: There are Mosquitos around. We took the strongest 'Jungle Formula' repellent with us with the highest DEET concentration from Boots. I also took an aerosol can of RAID in my checked luggage. We zapped the room upon arrival and then simply ensured we kept the patio doors closed at all times except when moving between the room and balcony. When going out at night we sprayed our ankles and exposed parts with the JF and had no problems at all. Mind you I did once nearly use the Raid instead of the Right Guard for deodorant, my fault for keeping them both by the sink and being sluggish in the morning. In summary, do go, I don't think you would be disappointed.More
