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.
I have just returned from a weeks holiday at st George. The hotel and staff were wonderful. Spotless clean throughout with attention to detail paid by all staff members. The meals whilst excellent were a little repetitive to other all inclusive hotels I've stayed at. The entertainment team unfortunately left a lot to be desired !! The only thing that marred our visit was the mosquito's I have never in all the places iI've travelled to been bitten to such an extent. In fact i needed tablets and cream. The entertainment area near the oriental bar was named "mosquito alley". The hotel did everything it could by daily treating the area but...... Despite this our overall stay was fantastic and I wouldn't hesitate to return. My overall marking for this hotel would be 7.5/10.More

Lovely friendly helpful staff
This was our first visit to Egypt for a 2 week stay. A lovely clean hotel, room a good reasonable size, king size bed and a 3/4 bed in the room with a balcany, and bath room. Staff was lovely and friendly very helpful went out off their way to help, always happy and chatty. Loved the towel arrangements left in the apartment. Entertainment team very good but wasn't on long enough in the evenings. A good variety of food, but not enough plain food for fussy eaters. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the St George and would like to say a big shukran (Thank you) to all the staff, especially to Amy for taking me to a cash machine after she finished work, when the hotel cash machine had a technical fault, and for both Claire and Amy getting my girls to join in the fun in the pool. Nothing was too much for any of the staff, from the cleaners, receptionists, pool attendants, restaurant and bar staff and the entertainment team, and the staff who carried our cases up to our room Couldn't have asked for better staff and lovely hotel. Also the shop assistants if they didn't have an item they went and got it in for you.More

2 weeks here and back home 2 weeks in a coma!!
When we stopped at this hotel it was our first time in Egypt and we didn't have a clue what we were letting ourselves in for!! Weather was amazing, hotel looked good and was good at first. The first week we spent at the beach and was relaxing with amazing views. The second week I started to feel unwell. The food took its toll on my body and we spent the majority of the days in our room on the loo! The hotel doctor was very good and staff was just average, nobody really stood out. I came home drained and still unwell and ended up in hospital in a coma on intensive care for 9 days. Doctors say I caught something from the hotel which made me so ill. It took me 2 months to get back to normal after this holiday, and I swear I will never stop at this hotel again!!More

St George October 2014
This was our 7th visit to this hotel and it just keeps getting better and better. All the staff are super friendly - Carlos with his sunset cruise, Michael the front office manager and Mustufa the barman,. to name but a few. The food, as usual, was very good with plenty of choice, there was always something to eat. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean by Hani and nothing was too much trouble for him. Can't wait until our next visit in March 2015More
