This grand hotel has it all – a great pool scene, first-class restaurants, a sandy beach and even its own ‘souk’.
It’s hard to know where to start with this place. The 4 pools are spectacular – 1 comes with an 82-metre waterslide. It’s also home to some of the smartest bars and restaurants in Sharm El Sheikh.
The hotel looks out over Gardens Bay, with its world-famous coral reef. There’s a diving centre on the beach, with plenty of watersports, and an in-house ‘souk’ with shops, cafés and live entertainment.

Too bad for the scuba diving instructor!
We came here to spend some nice days of sun relax, snorkeling and scuba diving. The place is very nice with a fantastic choice for breakfast. The real big disappointment which kind of ruined the trip was the scuba diving instructor George who convinced us first to get the scuba diver license and then did not have the time for us to finish it.. Very grumpy character and overall bad experience with the diving center because of him. More

I already want to go back, one week was not long enough. The hotel staff were very friendly and so hard working. The rooms were wonderfully clean and all areas of the hotel were well maintained. Had a wonderful massage. The highlight of my holiday was doing my scuba diving course and having it in the hotel was brilliant. The Red Sea dive college were fantastic and managed to fit me in without any pre booking, I just turned up and sorted it out there and then. The food was very good and even though I'm not a big fan of buffet the choice was great and the deserts were amazing. The only thing that I would say is that the drinks are a little on the expensive side. I would recommend this place to anyone and would love to go back again. More
Not 5 stars
We found the hotel and it's grounds to be beautiful and the greenery well maintained. There were a few pools to choose from and it was not crowded or noisy from music, as was the beach and almost perfect. I highly recommend you find the 'middle beach' if you want complete privacy, it was deserted and we slept there for a few hours during the day! The problem was there were many locals/Arabs who were taking over with their large families. They also tended to be loud and took priority at reception and breakfast. Reception staff, although polite, were clearly under a lot of pressure handling phone calls and dealing with irate residents. We loved the Souk and Thai restaurants and it was great that this was part of the half board allowance. Lunch at the Beach restaurant was amazing, though we bought nibbles as they mainly served full meals. The Cafe Fresco at breakfast was nothing special but plenty of choice nonetheless. I would not recommend eating here in the evening as the buffet was cold with a poor atmosphere and we only ate once here out of 7 nights. It was clear the locals were only allocated this in their allowance as we didn't see them in the other restaurants. Finally, the staff were very helpful and polite wherever you went. This is really good training. However, the housekeeping was substandard with rooms not being cleaned, just the bed being made and towels put in. This is a big thing for me as even a premier inn in the UK clean better and the main reason I am giving this only 3 stars. I think this hotel is about average for Egypt, it's hospitality is it's main strength. We have been to a few all inclusive hotels in Sharm that are cheaper and it's no better than that. Maybe the regency club would have been different but for the price increase, We couldn't justify paying for something that should be expected like basic cleanliness. More
Not a 5 stars
If you are user to 5 stars hotels you will not like it. You will feel part of a cattle. Hygiene: lobby smells like toilet. I dono y but it smells bad day and night. The corridors to the rooms are unclean, you will come accross empty package and tissues. The worse was in the room. My bedside lamp had large drawings made from nose mucus. The bed sheets are grey. The door of the toilet was unclean with all type of fishy trace of fingers. Last but not least toilet seat had traces of urine that were only swiped with paper. The breakfast is ok but u feel it's not clean. You have to queue in the morning to be seated in a noisy environment. It's a mass production thing. The restaurants are ok, the Thai is nice.The Souk restaurant is a nice concept. The beach: sand is not white but the corals are still nice and havr plenty of fish and clams. That was the best part of the trip. Actually snorkeling here is nicer than the four seasons. We appreciated the free airport transfer. Employees are undertrained so the check in and check out was a pain and can take an hour. You can even miss your flight for this reason. They also gave us late check out. Overall if you are not picky and are not looking for a 5 stars experience you can go to this beautiful hotel. Also the view is amazing. Unfortunately cleanliness is a major issue for us and we will not go back there. More
