My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks 07/09/2014, we had never been to Sharm el Sheikh before, we were recommended by friends to stay at this hotel and we were very, very pleased with it all. The staff couldn't do enough for you, there was something for everyone, if you wanted to keep fit, play games in the pool or like us, just go to relax, we found the relax pool very welcoming and the bar staff Osama and Khaled (hope the spelling is right) were wonderful, they kept you supplied with all manner or drinks, water, coffee, cocktails, beer, etc. The hotel had a lovely main restaurant with a lot of choices and there are three other restaurants to choose from, we thought that the Mai Thai was the best, for evening and lunch time. The rooms were kept very clean and we did get heart shaped towels and flower petals left for us, in fact the whole hotel had someone cleaning something all day long, the gardens were well looked after also. All the staff worked really hard to make your stay a happy one, the only problem was the staff trying to sell the massage and body therapy's for the wellness centre, the prices were not very clear and you may pay over the odds, so be aware. Even if you don't swim go to the jetty to just look at all the amazing fish (we saw a ray, sea snakes, star fish etc.) fantastic. Wi-Fi a bit hit and miss but free, air con and safe also free, big well done for that. We are so please that Mel told us about this hotel, we owe her a lot, many thanks Mel you were spot on xx from Larry and Kay xxMore
BEST holiday EVER!!!
Just returned from the best 2 weeks at Club Magic Life. Travelled as a couple with my Boyfriend.
Can honestly say we had the most amazing holiday and this hotel certainly doesn't disappoint!!
We were greeted at the hotel with a glass of orange juice whilst we checked in and our bags taken to our rooms for us, we were then shown to our rooms and left to enjoy our holiday!
We were in block 21B room 21117, It was constantly spotless, cleaned daily & our cleaner did a fantastic job, left us some amazing towel art, and was very friendly, yes the rooms were a little on the dark side but this didn't bother us, and they are a little dated but who goes on holiday to sit in their room.. Beds were very comfy, bathrooms spacious, and air con worked wonders which was much needed in the heat! We also paid for a late check out as you have to leave your room by 12.00 midday when leaving so we paid £35 until 5.00 which wasn't too bad and we could have a shower etc before we left. Definatly worth doing, although the bellboys came to collect our cases and in a polite way kick us out of our room at 25 to 5 which was a little annoying as we paid until 5..
We stayed by the relax pool as we didn't want to do any of the activities and just wanted to relax which is exactly what we did, Osama and co at the pool bar did a fab job Osama welcomed us on our first day and worked very hard every day always making everyone laugh and handing out drinks, a real credit to the hotel! Pool was lovely, always clean, towels are provided for sunbeds and can be changed as often as needed, however you do need to get up by at least 7.00 in the morning if you want a good spot by the pool as people put towels on sunbeds to reserve them. Bar waiters brought bottles of water round to everyone every morning, and cold towels during the afternoon and the occasional shortbread/apple covered in toffee sauce for everyone which was lovely!!
The food was absolutely incredible!! Not once did we have an upset stomach, or something we didn't like the taste of, there was so much choice of everything, things being cooked fresh in front of you, something for everyone and we could not fault the food at all! There was a different theme each night such as Egyptian, Mexican, Chinese etc.. We only visited the Italian (Al Baccio) A La Carte Restaurant out of the 3 to choose from as the main restaurant was too good to miss! We did also go to (Mai Thai) one lunch time for fajitas which is a MUST they were amazing!! Huge fresh fish were also caught and put on display in the main restaurant as they were cooked fresh in front of you which was fascinating! There was a big podium outside the entrance to the restaurant with a different theme every night and most nights had a lady singing or someone playing an instrument which made the dining experience even better. All tables were decorated by the theme of the evening and cocktails handed out at the entrance which was great!
We Loved the Eagles Lounge the most, Sam (Hosam) who worked in here was lovely, very friendly and made us lovely cocktails! All bars were lovely and air conditioned which was nice if you wanted to escape the sun/heat for a while. All waiters continuously asked if you wanted anything or got you more drinks, and were constantly on the go keeping customers happy.
A little pointer - The Wunder Bar was the best bar for good wifi signal!
Was ok... Thriller tribute was brilliant, however the amphitheatre shows were a little on the strange side, was only dancing no acting, and a little samey samey mostly aimed at children but were ok. The Beach party that was on one evening was absolutely amazing, Fire dancers, belly dancers, and much more, then one big massive party/dance off on the beach which everyone joined in and had a great time, hot dogs and popcorn were served part of the all inclusive along with drinks from the beach bar all evening, this was by far one of the best nights we had here!
We did the quad biking out in the desert with some friends who were also in sharm at the time, they booked it for all of us through their rep as Thompson unfortunately don't do quad biking as an excursion anymore. This was an amazing day out and lots of fun! We stopped and had tea in the desert and took some cool photos before heading off for the rest of our tour. Definatly recommend booking this excursion outside of the hotel!
We went to the hard rock café along the road from us in Nabq which was amazing! 15 minute walk from club magic, great food and drinks but the waitress who served us wasn't the best, it took her half an hour to take our drinks order, and once we paid our bill at the end she never brought our change back, we had to ask for it and she then told us that they had no change left at the bar to give us which was a little unusual.. This however didn't ruin our experience as it was a great laugh and the place itself was amazing and yummy food!
Our Thompson rep gave out discount vouchers for hard rock café at the welcome meeting to use in the restaurant and in the gift shop which we used so definatly worth going to the welcome meeting the following morning of arrival.
My boyfriend did a dive at the ocean dive club in nama bay which he enjoyed, but he got told by our rep he could do the refresher course as he had been diving before, however when we got there they told us he couldn't so we had to change it all and wait for the next group to arrive so he could dive with them which took a lot longer and then had to wait a few days to be refunded some money by our rep... but he enjoyed the dive so it didn't matter to much.
They also have a little lounge area which you can go and sit and smoke the shisha pipes part of the all incisive too which was fun and interesting to watch the man prepare the shishas!
The camel men sit next to the entrance to the jetty and are a little annoying, they pester you into having a camel ride, or even to take a picture of u by the camel using your own phone and expect money for it which we found a little rude so its best to just say hello or no thank you and walk on past if you aren't interested.
The jetty is a lovely walk, with some amazing views of all the fish, and corals, my partner really enjoyed the snorkelling off the end! Lots of Russians used our jetty though from other hotels along the beach and were quite rude pushing in front of me whilst I was trying to take pictures and a few in our hotel also thought it was ok to push in front of the food que at dinner but my partner made it perfectly clear to one lady who did this to him that there is a que which she didn't like much, but people que for a reason.... Most guests were English in our hotel and everyone all made friends and spoke to everyone everyday and got along really well.
Beach shoes are 100% needed if going into the sea as there is coral everywhere and lots of sea urchins! One poor man stood on an urchin which looked very painful so make sure u buy some/take some with you.
I could sit here for hours and tell u loads more about our amazing holiday but I would be here forever! Overall we had a great holiday and would definatly recommend this hotel to others and would come back! The staff certainly make this hotel as good as it is and are all a real credit to the hotel and all deserve a big thank you!
Good luck to Osama with the wedding in January! You were Brilliant! Bang Tidy!!! :)
And we miss all of our great friends we met around the pool and hope to return in the future!!

The best hotel we have ever stayed
Firstly we missed dinner about two minutes late, we got a cold dinner immediatelly, but after two hours they offered us midnight soup (it included cold and hot food, some cakes, pasta,....), you can still visit coffee room (Sisi) for the cake and nice coffee, itś opened till midnight. You can still walk up to the tower to have lovely view around. There is a few bars, you can order coctails, beverages (Pepsi, seven up, mirinda..), they have only one type of beer :(. there are three ala carte restaurant ( thai, egyptian and italian) you must order them one day before you want to go there. Just be careful there are some days, where they are closed, for example Egyptian is closed on Tuesdays, but there might be Egyptian evening in the main restaurant with Egyptian beach party with traditional dancing, you can´t miss it. The food is various, but one week is enought. I think they do lots of cakes and vegetable, from the meat they cook often chicken, turkey, beef, veal. We had ones tuna. They cook as well a lot pangasius :(. The nicest ala carte restaurant was italian, we really enjoyed the food there.
Entertaiment team worked wery hard, you can do many exercises, we took a lesson of aerobic, nordic walking,pilates, mountainbiking, ( you must do reservation one day before you go cycling) we have tryed scuba diving in the pool. It was nice experience. You can enjoy it on Monday /Friday. We did as well aqua aerobic, it was great fun, it happened in the main pool. There is as well the relax pool, so if you want relax you might go there. You can go to wellnes or fitness, itś included in the price.
In the evening there is live music, caraoke show, you can go to amfitheatre and someone or you can enjoy drinking tea with the watter pipe in Egyptian restaurant (you neednt reservation).
The rooms are weaker :(. The furniture is dark and the rooms are dark as well. We had broken safe, our fridge didn´t work, and we had very noisy aircon, I couldn´t sleep in night, because of noise from aircon and another problem was over the hotel flies planes. So, if you need quiet for sleeping it´s isn´t the best choice, anyway I usually slept there from 0,30 am to 7 am ( there wasn´t to many flights in these hours).
The beach is good, there is the beach bar and nice comfy sunbeds, you can change your towels every day. You might use yetty to go to the sea. Sea is nice for snorkeling.
Anyway our holiday was one of the best because of the animation team, nice relaxation atmospfere, service, and hard working staff.More
Magic Life Sharm is a nice hotel, no doubt. Good food, loads of different activities (zumba, aerobics, cycling, kongoo jumps...), nice animation team etc. The only downside, in my opinion, is the location. Nabq Bay is very windy and especially in non-summer months the red flag is up most of the time, which means NO swimming from the jetty. For those us who go to Egypt to enjoy the beautiful sea, this can be a major drawback...More

Just returned from the CML for our eighth visit, each time has been very enjoyable and we are booked to return in March. All the staff are very friendly but special thanks to Omar and Samir at the Eagles lounge, Osama and Kalib at the relax pool who always make us feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble. We went to the Mai Thai and the beef in oyster sauce was 'melt in your mouth' couldnt have asked for better. We have also been to the Sensatori twice, where the building is more up to date and smarter,the entertainment a little more professional, if you can stay awake late enough to watch it, but the staff and food at the CML are outstanding and there is plenty to keep you occupied if your feeling energetic.Looking forward to returning in March.More
