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.

My husband and I have booked this hotel for our 5th visit, I emailed the hotel and asked for a standard room at the quiet pool where we have been for our 4 previous visits to now receive a reply asking for Â£5.00 extra per day we are there for 2 weeks so an extra Â£70 I have replied that am unwilling to pay this so now will be our final visit a shame as the hotel is very nice.More
First time in Egypt........ possibly the only time!
First trip to Egypt and to be honest probably won't be going back. For a review I'm not sure where to start. I will just let it spill out in no particular order. Not sure the hotel is what I would class as 4 star but then I don't know what ratings are scored with in Egypt. The hotel was clean and basic but a little outdated. The pool area was being repainted but unfortunately it was being done in the early evenings so the wet paint was being spread around in flip flop shaped patterns. We booked a family room for two adults and two children, turned up to be given a room for 3. After a while this was sorted by giving us a superior room for 3 with an extra bed dragged in! As it was, it sufficed for the holiday as it was ground floor level next to the pool but it could easily have escalated the wife into all out warfare. The food was ok but the choice never changed much and some of it looked a bit like what I imagine would be served in prisons. Upstairs at Nathans was a different world, the food was great and the personal service from Ash and chef Ahmed was brilliant. Obviously you have to pay for this, itâs not included in the all-inclusive package. The drinks are served in the worldâs smallest plastic cup, but if youâre lucky enough to get given a pint glass the staff will fill it. There is no tea making facilities in the room, they are available but for an extra daily fee!! The staff absolutely makes this hotel. Too many to name check but the few that stuck in my mindâ¦.. Mahmoud and Mena around the quiet pool, brilliant. Ramy at the quiet pool bar was great and the kids loved him. Carlos was awesome, very very funny. His Sunset Cruise trip was easily the best trip we went on, if you get a chance you have to do this. We ended up doing it twice, but a word of advice, don't fall for the Elephant game. I did and my knees have not been the same since! George the tattooist was very very funny, and always stopped by for a bit of banter. Apparently, he can fix any tattoo! The hotel seems to have some funny ideas of timing. The pools close at 18:00, the pool bars close at 22:00. Not good. During the day at the quiet pool, where splashing, jumping in and ball playing is frowned upon, the gardeners turn up with the largest and noisiest petrol driven lawnmowers to cut a patch of grass that could be done with a pair of scissors. Just after 18:00 the man with the chemical fog turns up and the whole area is covered in some dodgy caustic bug killing substance. He never wears a mask so I guess the fog is fairly safe but then saying that it was never the same person twice!!! The entertainment team (they are called the animation team but they never drew anything!) worked very hard to entertain at night, unfortunately their shows just weren't very good! The kids disco kept the kids entertained but the later entertainment was tempered by a large consumption of alcohol. It finishes at 22:30 and then the place shuts down, literally!! The worst aspect was the Egyptian guests. They rank amongst the rudest, most ignorant people I have ever met. They have no manners, pile their plates with enough food to feed a small country and then leave most of it, push in, help themselves, have no control of their children and just generally please themselves with no thought for anyone else. It became apparent that most of the staff disliked them as well!! At one point they decided to move our childrenâs stuff from their sunbeds to sit down themselves! Luckily Mena (the big man) saw it and moved them off again. The quiet pool would be invaded, and no longer quiet, on a regular basis when their children (who don't wear nappies in the pool) decide brown fish were required in the busy pool. I mean, come on. Is a swimming nappy against your religion??? It was also an Egyptian guestâs idea of fun to smash a bottle of Jim Bean into the pool one night. This meant the pool was shut most of the morning as Mena tried to clear it all out but being a clear bottle it was never going to fully get cleared up without draining the pool down. As was proven when one of our friends sliced his toe open!! McDonalds, Pizza Hut and KFC all deliver to the hotel, just ask at reception for them to ring. This is handy should you have had enough of the buffet food and fighting with Egyptian guests. Also the pharmacy delivers as well, which is really handy as you will get some sort of bug. The price of medicine is also very very cheap. Get the pills at the beginning of your holiday, pop them throughout and you will not suffer any gastroenteritis, hopefully. Obviously I'm not a doctor so don't take this as gospel but it worked for me and others that I spoke to. The pills are Antinal for the stomach, and Streptoquin for the diarrhoea. All in all, an average hotel but elevated by the staff. They cannot be faulted in any way. Also we met some of the funniest people, and due to this gang it helped the holiday to be way, way better than it probably would have been. And one piece of advice for anyone going to Egypt. Stay away from camels!!! They are the devils work and will cost you a fiver just to look in their general direction!!! Just walk past, don't make eye contact and don't allow your children anywhere near them!!More
first trip to Egypt
The staff where very friendly and you could see that they worked very hard. The hotel was clean but could of been cleaner The staff do not ask for tips nor do they expect then, it is also a myth that u tip them a pound in English money as they have a hard time with the banks to change it, it would be far easier to just give them a five pound note at the end of your stay. We enjoyed are holiday very much but the down side was the food it had no taste and was well RUBBISH. I have an 8yr daughter who lived on bread for a wk, we also noticed the other children found they to where not interested in the food. Would we go again well only if the food was improved.I WOULD HOWEVER LIKE TO THANK GEORGE FROM (GUN POINT TATTOO) FOR DOING MY MUMS TATTOO AND CHECKING EVERYDAY THAT IT WAS STILL OK XMore

Another great stay at St George.
A great 2 weeks. The staff work wonders to keep everyone happy. The bar staff are all great especially Carlos, the animation team always happy and helpful, encourage you to join in. Claire, kimo, mesho, amy, mamo and kat all do a fab job!! The pools were lovely, a shame for them to have to be closed a few times but it was beyond the hotels control due to guests lack of respect and urinating in them. The hotel did their best to clean them as soon as they were informed. There was always something to eat, maybe a little repetitive but with jive bar just next door and mcds delivered we were happy. George did henna tatoos for our children hes very friendly. The food at the beach was pretty poor, cold food and warm drinks. Overall a great holiday. Mainly due to the staff going above and beyond to make your holiday the best. We will be back im sure. More
Quiet stay with my 8 year old daughter
I have stayed in sharm many times before I normally go there once a year, I have stayed in some amazing hotels and also some real horrible ones! This hotel is defiantly up with the best 4, probably 4th! The staff are amazing they are always at hand asking to help, the staff that stick in my mind most are mamoad (quiet pool) Ramy (quiet pool bar) ashraf ( Nathan's resturant) Fady (theatre bar) and last but least I can not forget Carlos!!! I love Carlos he is so sweet and really did make my holiday felt like he was a real friend each time we see him! The animation team work real hard during the day round the busy pool which I only went to once cause it was just to hectic for the holiday I was looking for. They do shows every night and kids disco at 8.30 for half an hour. The shows was ok but it was just for a bit of entertainment in the background for me while I sat at the back. The entertainment finishes at 10.30 then lights off and the place empty's!! The Egyptian holiday makers really let's the place down. They are so rude, they eat like pigs, push in and don't say please and thank you! The big pool was closed for a hour each day because of them doing toilets in the pool and I'm not talking a number one!! One of them decided to brake a glass bottle around the quiet pool and it took (big man) two hours to clean it out of the pool. I was worried to stand on the floor after that, a friend cut his foot. The food was ok there was always something I found that I liked my daughter lived on pasta! Ordered mcdonalds 4 times in 14 days, that's pretty handy you just ask at reception to call them, same at all hotels in sharm! George is the tattooist he comes round every day trying to get business he is very very very nice! You tell him no and he still comes every day for a laugh! U really can not fault the staff!! There is a English pub next door which is free wifi which was pretty handy! This holiday was just what I wanted a quiet and relaxing place with my daughter in 40degree heat but I do have a few pointers to point out which I wasn't happy with! 1. Swim up pool bar is not a swim up pool bar! 2. Night time entertainment is not long enough 3. The pools closing at 6pm!!! 4. Cups the size of water cups for beer. 5. Only having one bottle of water in room which u have to refill yourself. 6. My daughter was very ill for two days and stayed in the room I asked at pool bar if I could take a bottle of half filled fanta to my room save keep going up and down and got told no!! 7. The jacuzzi was pretty poor I could make more bubbles by passing wind! The beach is ok but been to better in sharm! U would be better off paying for a taxi to el faner beach! The people I meet actually made my holiday but just for the hotel based on cleanliness and staff I would give it 6/10 if I would travel with my daughter there again I would go back to that hotel. If I was to go with another adult then I would choose somewhere else! Lots of family's of four only had a double bed and a bit bigger than a single in there room for them. There was lots of changing rooms and extra beds being moved in whilst there. One family a child at to sleep on the sofa. I was ok I had two doubles in my room just for me and my daughter with also a sofa! Happy holidays people ! :)More
