The Xperience St. George Homestay is 10 minutes from the sea, and lines up a pair of pools, two restaurants and big, airy bedrooms.
This place is just 10 minutes from the Red Sea’s famous shoreline – a shuttle bus will whisk you to the hotel’s own private arc of sand. A short cab ride in the opposite direction will get you to lively Naama Bay.
Inside, bedrooms are big and bright, with ivory-coloured walls and cool tiles on the floor. Curtains and bed runners are a matching shade of aquamarine, and each room comes with a spacious balcony or terrace.

Fabulous Holiday, great location
My first visit to the St George although not my first visit to Sharm. Having earlier in the year stayed at a bigger hotel in Nabq Bay the reason I chose the St George was for a smaller and more personal experience as I am a lone traveller and I find larger hotels overwelming. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff would go out of their way to make sure that your needs were attended to and resolve any issues you might have. No beach at the hotel but you can book on the shuttle bus to take you to the 'hotel beach' - not the best beach in the world by far but the snorkeling is pretty good - the bus will also take you into Naama Bay at night if you want to explore more. The food was adequate, your never going to starve although a little repetitive if you are there for a few weeks. There are 2 pools at the St George - the quiet pool and the noisy pool where the animation takes place. There was a slight gestapo attitude by some of the regular visitors as to the noise level at the quiet pool and if you dared raise you voice you were reported and ejected to the other pool. Several families with children were asked to leave which I thought was grossly unfair, the pool sign said children to be escourted at all times, it did not say no children at all. The regulars that return to this hotel year after year need to be mindful that it is not a adult only resort.More

Better than a 3 star for sure!
Ok where to start. I'll get the bad things out of the way first, there are not many so please bear with me, these are minor gripes though.... The pool system is not made clear enough to people. There was occasions where kids and families were evicted from the 'quiet' pool which I thought was unfair as we were all kids having fun once. The gardener uses recycled water which absolutely stinks like sewage, and he even flooded our room with this vile water once, but it was cleared very very quickly with a quick call to reception. Cutting the grass by the pools in the daytime just results in people getting munched on by rabid Mosquitos, take note gardener. Onto the mosquito problem...although me and the better half were only bitten a few times, there were people who had been bitten all up their legs, arms, head etc, well over 30 times. Why an earth isn't more done to get rid of the Mozzies? The deisel fog machine is a waste of time. Insectocuter type lights would be far better at night in the bar areas. Finally, we had 2 instances where the cleaner screwed up but again these were sorted extremely fast once we let them know. So, now onto the good bits........... On arrival we were picked up from the airport nice and easy and 20 mins later we were at the hotel. We arrived and immediately we were treated like royalty. The bag guy wouldn't let me touch my bags and took all cases to our room. Reception staff booked us in very quickly and after a brief mix up with rooms, we settled into our new room by the quiet pool (3009, perfect location). Room was a nice size and the air condition worked well. It was clean and had a TV etc. I didn't opt for wi-fi as at Â£18 per week I thought that was a rip off. We went to the restaurant for food. Now I've read on some reviews that people were not happy that they had to pay for all inclusive. You don't. At all. Never. There is a separate restaurant upstairs that you can use and that you have to pay for. The food in the free restaurant was fine. I've read whinging people saying there is no choices but in reality there were a good 5 different choices every meal, and if people choose to eat the same thing and not try other food, then of course it's repetative. No gripes with the food from us though . The restaurant staff were spot on. They always had drinks ready for us before we sat down and there was always food and not much of a queue. We always stayed round by the quiet pool as we wanted a relaxing time. The loud pool was ok,mane had a swim up bar which bizarrely you can't swim up to (no point then). The animations team wee all nice and friendly enough and always spoke to you. The 'quiet' pool was really nice. Decent pool and a juccuzi in the middle although the gate was always locked? Nessim the bartender at the pool was a great guy. Always had time to speak to people and had a decent sense of humour. You will get hassled for your first few days, sometimes quite a lot, but the spa and excursion lot at the hotel. There are 'do not disturb' notices you can hang from your lounger to stop this, however once you start getting a tan and not looking like a milk bottle they usually stop the hassle or hard sells. We met some great people on this trip, and the million dollar question is "would I go back?". Well I would go back tomorrow if I could, and I certainly will be back within the next 2 years for sure. A perfect relaxing holiday with great people, good facilities and we miss it. Oh one thing I forgot...the beach. I would bother. It's crap, but I wouldn't let that bother you at all, we went down for half a day and got a cab back. Check it out but you won't go a second time, but that's cool the hotel was good enough. If you are wondering about excursions, people seemed to have a much better time going through their holiday reps and not the hotel team. Anyway , overall we loved it here and will go back. Don't let three stars put you off at all. It's great.More

Just got back from a two week stay here not a bad hotel rooms were a good size very clean check in was quick bags were brought up quite quickly to your rooms we arrived around 10:30pm so was nice that there was somewhere we could grab a bite to eat as the restaurant wasn't actually open the food was of good quality but more of a varity would be nice also a nice restaurant to eat at as part of the all inclusive package would be nice as when h pay for all inclusive that's what it should be Ive not been to a hotel before that's had a restaurant that u have to pay for in an all inclusive resort so that was a let down for me, I feel that the quiet pool and the noisy pool isn't really made clear to people in regards to the rules as such we sat on the quite side as was nearer to our room and if we wanted to listen to music we would put on our headphones but if u were too noisy around that pool then u were told to move round to the other pool we didn't get moved but other people did during our stay as a couple customers moaned children were having too much fun and being too loud in the pool (it not like your on holiday in a family resort or any thing ) we were all children once I like the idea of no music round one pool and not the other but for it to be the bigger and better pool of the two and children can't have fun what's the point in having the pool the swim up bar in the other pool that Wasn't being used which to me seems a waste on a good note the cleaner we had was brilliant the towel art was always a good touch Nessim was a good bar man always made me good cocktails the internet costs need to be made cheaper or added in the ur package for ur holiday we really enjoyed our holiday but feel there is just a few things that could be improved and also the entertainment started too late and didn't last long and lacked quality. The jive bar next to the hotel was a good English bar More
nice relaxed holiday
this was our forth time at this hotel & it just get's better as the years go on. the hotel is bright & clean . the maintenance team keep the place running smoothly in spite of the volume of tourists using the property. the gardeners keep the grounds looking beautiful with lush green grass & lovely flowers. all the staff are friendly and helpful from samy & the team in the buffet , samer,carlos,& melad in the lounge bar, melad also runs the main pool bar during the day 10 till 6 , nessim at quiet pool bar10 till 10 . there is also the oriental bar but I never managed to get round there this time. the pool staff are very helpful nothings to much trouble, I give a big thank you here to mina at the quiet pool for all his help & humour. our cleaner this time was Mohammed ( room 4007 ) who done a very good job . the reception staff are very good only took 5 mins to check in. if you have any problems mr Michael Aziz solves them with a smile on his face because he truly loves his job .please give nathans restaurant a try although you have to pay for your food here Mohamed & ash will make sure you really enjoy your meal here. you can also order some menu dish's in the buffet for a small charge which is a nice change to get table service in the buffet. we would like to give megan from the animation team a mention as she always made time to go round and have a chat with us & every one else even if they were not taking part in activity's . we will see you all again in September.More
