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.
The buffet restaurant offers 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.
These spacious twin rooms feature neutral tones and simple furnishings, and include a balcony or terrace. Along with your twins, they'll come with 2 additional single beds for extra sleeping space. Inside, you'll find air-conditioning, a fridge, and satellite TV available.

There seems to be somewhat of a clique on here regarding this hotel. I stayed here for two weeks last summer and it was by no means the perfect experience that some would have you believe. The food is poor. I've seen on here that its typical of all inclusive but its not. The bar's choice of spirits was strange with ridiculously strong measures at times. Id also avoid travelling here during ramadan. The influx of Muslim Egyptian or similar tourists cuased a change to the environment of the hotel. This isn't intended to be racist at all but they shoved their way into queues at dinner, let their kids run an absolute riot in the quiet pool area and at one point me and my girlfriend left our sunbed to go to lunch and returned to a grossly obese egyptian man and his family sitting on our beds with our towels sitting in a puddle on the floor. The staff allowed this to happen with many other holiday makers being growlingly becoming uncomfortable.
The bar area is a strange set-up, right in the lobby next to built in shops. no music with very little atmosphere. There is an outside bar with the animation stage but its arguably even worse.
The quiet pool area is great, when the rules are followed. There are reps from the spa who for some strange reason are allowed to come up to you at the pool and try and sell treatments to you. One time i was woken up at the pool by the same man who has asked me three times in the last 24 hours to try and sell me a massage. Just downright rude and annoying.
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere. Completely miles away from anything except a single pub next door. The hotel taxi service and mini bus is the only way to get around but the taxi can become expensive when these journeys add up.
Carlos is an absolute superstar. The guy is a waiter but takes it upon himself to do the job of the animation team only twice as good. The sunset cruise is a must. We did quite a few excursions with the Thomson rep but it was great. The restaurant staff are also excellent, the waiters cant do enough for you.
Its hard to believe given my review, but I enjoyed this holiday but this was down to the weather and the Thomson team. The hotel was a huge disappointment.More
Absolutely brilliant! Very friendly staff that go above and beyond to help and make your holiday the best possible. Great food and facility's. Very clean would definitely recommend this place.
Rooms are large and clean.
The hotel as a whole is very clean and well looked after.
Great experience for the whole family. More
Well worth the extra effort to get there : April 2016
We were not disappointed that we made the extra travel plans to get to this, our regular hotel, in Sharm. For all the sceptics, hotel inspectors, gourmet chefs, and hygiene inspectors, that regularly post negative comments, this hotel will not be for you !
I would advise you spend Â£80 per night more and stay at the Hilton !
We are on a limited budget and this hotel ticks all the boxes for us as a relaxing, friendly place to stay while we relax in the guaranteed sunshine of Sharm.
Obviously, due to the FOC travel restrictions, this visit was not normal, the hotel was almost empty of guests but this did not stop all the staff from treating us like royalty.
The hotel was well maintained & kept very clean, the room was thoroughly cleaned every day, the food was delicious and varied. Anything not out on the buffet the chef would make for you if he had the ingredients.
We met some of the regular staff, Michael Aziz, Nasim, Ramy, Mena (reception), Mena (pool and part time comedian) Carlos (full time comedian and at the beach until things pick up again) Ibrahim in the restaurant . On this visit every single member of staff, I cannot remember all the names, went out of their way to make this stay a special one to remember.
We cannot thank them all enough for making our regular trip to this hotel so special each visit we make.
Nothing in life is perfect. This hotel is not perfect !
However, for the money we pay to stay here this was absolutely perfect for us.
My heart goes out to any one caught up in atrocities of any kind, any where in the world, at any time .
However, I would seriously urge any one considering a trip to Sharm, make the extra effort, you will not be disappointed.More

Great all inclusive.
Although like any after a while the food is very mundane.
Towels were always made up in animal characters
A really nice touch.
Make sure you go and do the desert at nighttime including the BedouinMore
Nice first holiday.
Booked this holiday with Thomson for 2 weeks in July last year. We got a great price so couldn't complain for me and my girlfriends first holiday.
Rooms are nice, nothing fancy, good shower! although aircon did make a noise and we couldn't keep it on during the night. Safe didnt work until i called reception to come a fix it. Clean towels daily and some cool towel art.
Two pools were great - if you want to relax go to the quiet pool (its VERY quiet) but we stayed mostly as other pool were the was music all day and volleyball and water-polo in the pool. The staff are fantastic around the pool and in general throughout the hotel.
The food was OK. Got a bit boring after 2 weeks. But some nights they would put on a special night like Chinese or Turkish which was good! Desserts were terrible.
The drinks served were poor but is the same in almost every Egyptian hotel. They stop the all inclusive at midnight which was annoying.
The hotel put free buses to Naama bay, Soho square and the local beach - (which is awful, dont bother). We went to Naama bay around 3 or 4 times during our stay - we Loved the bars and shopping. We booked Soho square with Thomson, it is a modern version of Naama bay with some expensive shops and bars but is also worth a visit. We also booked the VIP cruise with Thomson to go snorkelling and it was well worth it! best day of the holiday by far. The snorkelling was amazing and the food was great on the boat. We booked the waterpark through the guys at the hotel which was a bit pricey but well worth it and booked paragliding through the same guys which was awesome!
Word of warning - Avoid the Egyptian national holidays.
All in all a great holiday for the price we paid! Would I return to Egypt? Properly not.More
