If you're looking for a holiday base with plenty going on, pop this one on your shortlist. It's 10 minutes from the sea, and lines up a pair of pools, 2 restaurants and big, airy bedrooms.
Just ten minutes from the Red Sea’s famous shoreline, the Xperience St. George Homestay is one of those all-rounders that ticks all the right boxes. One glance will tell you that water plays an important part here.
The pool scene is the centrepiece and you’ll probably want to spend a large portion of your holiday here – when you’re not taking the bus to the beach that is. There are two turquoise stunners to choose from plus a smaller one for the little ones. And they’re framed by roomy, palm-peppered terraces so you won’t have to fight for a spot in the sun either. When you’re ready for a drink, two pool bars complete this rather seductive picture.
Talking of food, the main restaurant does a great buffet. Pile your plate high with pasta, salads, meat and fish. Or plump for a meal in the à la carte and sit back while the waiters bring your order to you. Afterwards, make the most of the hotel’s entertainment, which includes Egyptian folklore and belly dancing. Or call a taxi and head into Naama Bay, the resort’s buzzing centre which sits just ten minutes away.
When you’re ready to retire to your room, you’ll be glad to hear a peaceful haven awaits. All white-washed walls and cool tile floors, each one comes with air-conditioning, a satellite TV and – the pièce de résistance – your own balcony or terrace. If you’re coming to the Red Sea Riviera with relaxation on your mind, this place is pretty hard to beat.
Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Any gluten or wheat-free dishes can be prepared on request, just let the restaurant staff know. Themed evening buffets are put on so you can enjoy trying a different cuisine while being away, expect Oriental, Italian and international evenings.
It was my first time at this hotel before booking I had done a lot of research and read tons of reviews 3 weeks before my holiday and overall there was many more good reviews then bad but I still didn't no what to really expect. The service at the hotel was amazing 10/10 the stuff are super friendly, they go out of there way for the guests to make them happy and to insure there having a great time, the location of this hotel is also great 10-20mins away from everything. But on the other hand of things I was very disappointed with the cleanliness of this hotel everything from the rooms to the reception area looks like it needs a good clean and I was shocked to find stains and dirty marks in the room I was staying in, it was absolutely disgusting!
The food was ok breakfast and lunch is exactly the same everyday which can make you a bit sick after 1 week but with dinner they would change it up every night. The quality of the food is what to expect in an all inclusive, you get what you pay for. If you want to get a sun bed by the pool area make sure to wake up and have your towels by 6/6:30am any later and its all gone and you won't get a seat for the rest of the day. I noticed people would put there towels on the seats they wanted at 6ish and then not turn up my the pool later on in the day which I thought was unfair to others and also the guy that works by the quiet pool would reserve sun beds for people that would pay him so you couldnt do anything else apart from stay in the room or in the hotel somewhere because even if you wanted to go to the beach you would have had to booked it the day before as you need to give 24hours notice. Also some of the people I spoke to that was staying at the hotel had got really ill and thought it was food poison they caught but to be honestly i don't think it was the food and I advise anyone travelling to Egypt not to drink any water from there or anything washed using the water from there so like salads or fruit because you will get ill and have a upset stomach. If it's bottled water you buy from the shops or filtered water from the hotel then that's fine. More
Value for money
This holiday was cheap and cheerful. Positives were Michael on the front desk who is everything a person working in customer service should be. The rooms were clean and spacious, the pools and the pool areas were good. The food and staff in the pay restaurant. The beach and the free bus service down to the beach. The less positives were the food and drink on the all inclusive. Not much that took our fancy, not great quality. We paid extra for the room upgrade but didn't get what we had paid for on more than one occasion had to ask for Michael despite there being a sign in the lobby telling staff what was included. Location was a bit out of the way.More

worst holiday yet
Just a short review as we have to agree with the bad points mentioned in the other reviews for September.
We also spent three days in our room with gastroenteritis on a special menu ,the clinic also said that the bill would be covered by our insurance then tried to get us to pay cash , after a phone call to our insurance we only had to pay our excess.
The room we had by the children’s play area was really noisy at night due to some machinery in a neighbouring property , which we complained about to the reception staff who just was not bothered.
Other facts about the sun beds are completely true seeing guests going past with towels at 7.30 in the morning!.
The check out was a joke after paying for a late check out at 5 they called our room to make sure we left before 5, after settling our bill and paying the excess for our medical treatment they promptly cut our wrist bands off so we could not get a drink or anything to eat even though we were stuck there for the next 2 hours.
Very disappointed .More
Fantastic Hotel - Will Be Back Very Soon
We stayed here in june 2014 as a last minute holiday.
We didnt pay much for the holiday so we weren't expecting much but this hotel was very good value for money.
i went with my partner for 1 week and the hotel was very clean, food was ok you always found something you liked. The size of the cups are an issue but its no big problem. You just find your self getting 2 of everything. I would take a plastic cup with you as we found most of the other people were doing this.
The rooms were huge always clean - no issues at all.
The animation team made our holiday - mamo, claire and the rest of the team were really good always getting people involved in all the activities.
i hope we will return in November or early next year, i would recommend this hotel to everyone.More
Where do we start !!! On arrival checked in and was allocated a room with main road view so asked to upgrade. The leaflet in the room said upgrade for £5 per night but in actual fact was told there was two choices of upgrade the birthday package or the honeymoon package .Chose the birthday package costing 1,400 EGP this got us a pool view which was ok ,water every day ( if they remembered ), and a few other extras.
Entertainment was poor, only one good night out of the two weeks we were there which was an Egyptian night. All other entertainment was very poor.
Normally we do not have any issues with regards to the food but we struggled to find any good point about the food quality and choice.
The Bars used the smallest plastic cups we have ever seen in our lives so couldn't even enjoy a proper drink.
The room was only cleaned when we actually saw the cleaner who asked if we wanted it cleaning !!!! Should be cleaned every day without the need of asking.
Nathans Al a Carte restaurant was absolutely fantastic. The food was superb the staff were amazing. Thank you for an amazing night.
We both got ill on the first week of our stay and was fleeced by the hotel clinic.
If you are not up at the crack of dawn you have no chance of getting a sunbed around the pool.
Free shuttle to the beach has to be ordered 24hrs in advance so not flexible if you miss out on the sunbeds around the pool.
Nothing in walking distance from the hotel only one bar and a supermarket.
Everyday is the same in regards to being harassed by sales staff in the hotel wanting to sell trips or spa treatments. You expect this in Egypt outside the hotel not inside.
Some of the staff are very friendly and pleasant Thank you El Sayed for making us feel welcome.
To sum up if you are after a nice relaxing holiday do not stay here.More
