Xperience St. George Homestay  

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.

Brilliant

Me, my wife and 3 year old so have just returned from a week staying here. The staff were fantastic, always speaking to us and whenever they could they would always speak to our son and acknowledge him! There was not a meal missed here and the choice and different variety each night was excellent! At night time our son would go along to the kids disco where he would just go crazy along with Kat, who was part of the animation team. She was absolutely fantastic and the best of the team! All of the team were good but Kat really stood out! Finally, all the bar staff were great but Samir was the one that you could really get along with! Again another that stood out! Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would recommend it to others!More

HaggisHunter13,

Lovely stay, good hotel, but let us down at the last minute :/

My hubby and I stayed here in early September 2013. We had a fantastic stay, our favourite holiday ever, even slightly better than our honeymoon in the Caribbean and that was fantastic! The hotel is very clean, spacious & friendly although a little dated we thought in some areas eg reception & bar area. Food is very good with a lot of choice and always something different. Rooms are large, spacious & clean. We felt very welcomed and at home. They have their own beach a couple of miles away, but their free minibus takes you there & brings you back at different times in the day, but you must pre-book. The beach is man made but we really liked it and has a variety of water sports which we took part in and loved! Has it's own bar too and the service was excellent, one guy inparticular who we became very friendly with, he deserves a lot of credit, but as it's last year I can't remember his name, might be Sanjay, Sanjeev or similar, he's such a lovely guy. One night we went to the nearby markets, we were enjoying them at 1st (even though you get mithered to death!), were having banter with the stall/shop owners, and then it turned into a bad experience. One guy in a perfume shop wouldn't take no for an answer, was desperate to flog us some perfume I tried on (and didn't like). We were very polite but he still wouldn't accept I didn't want or need the perfume, tried to stop me leaving his shop, then hubby had to step in as I felt very uncomfortable. Hubby gave him a few choice words and we left, totally ruined it for us. So beware of them being too pushy, try not to go inside the shops/stalls, I regretted doing so, was just trying to be polite. On the last night of our stay we had a romantic meal down at the beach, hotel arranged it all for us and we were taken by a private taxi. Meal was fab, had lobster etc, they'd gone to a lot of effort and even drew a big heart on the sand with our names surrounded by candles everywhere and swans made out of towels, was really lovely. Included wine too. Unfortunately, when we came to check out the day after we discovered they'd overcharged us for an extra bottle of wine. My hubby was furious about it and complained as the meal was supposed to be all inclusive, there was no mention of being charged any extra for the 2nd bottle of wine we had. After a long argument we were still made to pay, so the holiday ended on a sour note, which is such a shame as everything had been fab. So if you book the meal on the beach watch out for this, it only includes 1 bottle of wine and they won't tell you at the time that if you have any more you will be charged! It was £20 a bottle too which is why hubby was so angry, not like it was cheap. Would I return? I don't know to be honest, I think they let themselves down at the last hurdle, very poor customer service. If it wasn't for this i'd have given them 5 stars. I think when I return to Egypt i'll be staying somewhere else as we saw plenty of better looking hotels while we were there so i'd give one of them a go, but if you're on a budget this hotel fits the bill as it's very good for the price you pay.More

Excellent holiday hotel and fab staff

We arrived slightly apprehensive after reading some of the later reviews but these were soon put to rest. The staff at this hotel should be hightly commended for the service they provide to the hotel's customers. A special mention to Samir who looked after us at the Pool Bar, and Taha who looked after our room and made many lovely decorations with the towels from monkeys hanging from the roof to hearts, swans and crocodiles - all lovely. The entertainment reps also looked after my daughter (19) who came along with us, entertaining her during the day and also taking her on many of their events in the evening - they looked after her well and ensured she got home at the end of a night out - she thoroughly enjoyed her holiday thanks to them. Thanks also to the Pool men who ensured we had fresh towels daily and kept the pool area very clean. Reception staff were also very very helpful (especially the guy with the glasses, sorry I forgot to get his name). Nathan's is well worth a visit - we went three times - the only disappointent was that on each occasion there was no sea bass or veal, however the steaks were excellent and drinks are still all inclusive. The food in the restaurant is ok, not brilliant but they do try and you can usually get something that you will eat - the pasta bar is excellent and the chef here will make your sauce to order. We also visited the beach which needs to be booked the day before - booking starts from 8am so get there early to ensure you get on the early coach and make sure you write your room number for the amount of people you want on the bus - also remember that you need to do the same for the return journey. The snorkelling was fabulous - walk round the beach towards the cliffs and you'll see the best fish - its like swimming in a tropical fish tank. Visit the Jive Bar just up the road from the hotel where you get free Wi Fi and you can also buy an all inclusive drink ticket (10pm - 3pm) for about £15.00. All shops take English as well as Egyption money, just be careful if buying cigarettes - go to Harrods for your cigs - yes Harrods!! free coach from the hotel drops you off at 8pm and picks you back up at 10pm - the guy in this shop will show you the difference between the fake and the real cigs - I bought some from here on recommendation and they're fine. The hotel could probably do with a bit of a face lift but it's kept very clean and tiday and the staff cannot be faulted. I can see why they get people going back year on year. My daughter intends to visit again in March and no doubt we will visit again. Thanks for an excellent holiday.More

Good for week's break

Booked with Thomas Cook; for a week's holiday, this place is not bad and the price is very reasonable. The staff are very attentive and the service is good in the main. They are quick serving the drinks in the restaurant and at the Mermaid pool bar. (Although a tip does seem to help with this). Food is of a good standard, did not go hungry, loads of choice. Room was clean and Saber, our housekeeper, was great with his towel art (again, if you leave a tip). I do have a couple of negatives. We had room 2076 which overlooks the sewage farm. You can hear the machinery every evening from about 5 - 11pm at night. Fortunately, we couldn't smell it from our balcony but you can smell it in the animation tent at night - it was really strong. Unbearably so. We had to retire to our rooms at 9.30pm to escape it. Sunbeds are an issue. We were up at 6.30am every day trying to get a bed and there were always people already down there with their towels. We stayed by the 'noisy' pool as we preferred the atmosphere. But if you get there after 8am its hard to find a sunbed - what's all that about when you are on holiday?! Maybe they should get some more beds? The spa is expensive with old equipment and I didn't think it was worth the money I paid. I've definitely had better and more relaxing experiences elsewhere; they need to work on this. The beach is a bus ride away which you have to book your departure and return the night before. Not sure this works very well as if you want to return from the beach earlier than the time you booked, you can't get a space on the bus. Also, it's not a great beach for swimming, too much coral and shingle. We only went once. The snorkelling opportunities are amazing however - loads to see if you walk out to the right of the beach and swim back round. Sunset cruise is well worth the money, you won't be disappointed. I don't think we will return here as we don't go to the same place twice but it was a great place to go if you just want a week on a sunlounger to relax in the sun.More
