This hotel looks out over Gardens Bay, one of Sharm El Sheikh’s best dive spots. Plus it’s got a fantastic house reef where you can snorkel among shoals of fish. There are beaches nearby – orange sands gliding into the sea, as well as sunbathing rocks perched above. And last but not least, the hotel is close to Naama Bay – the centre is six kilometres away.
Top billing though has to go to the gardens. Studded with balustraded terraces and green-topped pavilions, they’ve got a hint of the English seaside promenade about them. Down by the pools though, you enter fairytale territory. A lazy river glides through trailing bougainvillea and grottoes. The main pool, meanwhile, comes complete with rocky edges and water cascades. And children are well catered for, with a corkscrew waterslide.
The hotel interiors are rather special, too – think understated regal. Cue elegant marble and indoor palms running through the public areas. Similarly, the rooms are refined and tasteful, with sleek wooden headboards, neutral colour schemes and extras like tea and coffee kits.
On the culinary front you’re spoilt for choice. You can watch your meat and fish being fried or grilled by chefs at Café Fresco, the main buffet restaurant. Show cooking is a feature at the gourmet Thai eatery, too. The most popular spot though is The Souk. Spilling out onto a palm-dotted patio, it offers up a lavish array of Asian, Western and Oriental cuisine for dinner – with evenings spiced up by authentic Bedouin drummers and musicians.

I had a list of requirements from my hotel choice in Sharm. First and foremost my husband could not get food poisoning. A fairly standard request you would think ........ Last year. We travelled to Sharm and stayed at the Hilton Waterfalls day 3 and fell ill to food poisoning. He stated "never again to Sharm ". Having spoken to friends who had travelled 6 years in a row to the Hyatt and never been ill he relented. We completed our 8 night stay with not an inkling of illness TICK Hotel needs to be clean. Rooms spotless. Bathroom facilities by pool spotless. One early morning start we saw staff cleaning all the floor areas around the pool and all the banisters. TICK Food hygiene high. Buffet area spotlessly clean with serving tongs for all dishes including breads. Serving dishes small which meant they were replenished quickly and food was always hot. Choice incredibly varied. TICK Friendly staff. ALL staff super responsive to our needs and around the pool offered assistance without having to ask - but certainly not intrusive. Nothing too much trouble. TICK Cost effective. We went half board and therefore had 240 Egyptian Pounds to spend on food each evening. We did not need any more. Food was cheap for a 5 star hotel and very good quality. A large bottle of water was £2.25. It if you took the free shuttle bus 10 minutes down the road to Nama Bay's supermarket you could pick up some for 25pence a bottle. We stocked up in the room and it was no problem. Alcohol is expensive and if you are watching your pennies I would suggest taking some duty free with you and buy mixers at the supermarket. Beer was not available at the supermarket but at a local shop for £1 a can. TICK Stunning hotel to look at with 3 heated pools so going in February the water was not cold. You are able to pay extra to upgrade to REGENCY. For this you miss out on the fabulous buffet breakfast ( continental only although they are starting to offer eggs now !!!) You have your own pool and check in and also drinks. In my opinion SO not worth the extra. Hotel is HUGE so always sun beds available. Unless of course you feel paying extra makes you feel extra special ........... Booking to return again next year !!!!!!!!!!!More
Thank you Shabam!
Spent a wonderful week at this hotel with my wife and daughter. Unfortunately my wife broke her leg a few weeks before travelling and we selected this hotel because it had good accessibility, lifts and ramps. What made it special was the staff who really could not do enough for you. Their attitude to service was exemplary and even during the busy Easter period they went out of there way to make your stay perfect and really couldn't do enough for you. Special praise is due to Shabam the pool butler who igave exemplary service even insisting on pushing my wife up a very steep slope in her wheelchair. Thank you for going far beyond the call of duty. Alcohol prices are pretty steep so be aware that this is not an all inclusive resort but well worth budgeting for.More

Feb 2014- An outstanding experience!
From start to end, a wonderful trip, made better by the high standards and great service at this hotel! Many people will be concerned with the troubles in Egypt, but when we went, there were no disturbances within Sharm. The security at the hotel also made you feel safe, as they checked luggage, undersides of cars (including their own shuttle bus) every time you went in and out, though we mostly stayed at the hotel. The pool complex was fantastic. They were heated in winter, and there were about 3 outdoor whirlpools heated to 30+ degrees centigrade for the adults to bask in, while the kids enjoyed the pool, or went down the slide. The poolside restaurant was decent, and a good place to eat if you didn't fancy leaving the hotel for lunch. It also had enough vegetarian options. The beach wasn't too big, but there was easily enough room for everyone (and it was mid-to -high twenties every day in february!) and the coral was a highlight, although beware of the fire coral, it can sting without you touching it. Also, the pontoon was a good launch point for getting straight into the action of you didn't fancy wading through the water from the beach first. The equipment was the expected price for a hotel like this, though the beach restaurant wasn't great. The staff, including the hotel doctor, were great. After a little fire coral incident, he was on site, and immediately provided assistance. He also came to our room to check up on it later in the evening. The staff were extremely kind and friendly, though the reception staff seemed a little unreceptive. The room was nice, with a great view. Do not leave your doors open in the evening unless you want mosquitoes in your room. we made this mistake once, which resulted in a few bites, though the hotel did a lot to combat it. The entertainment at the Souk was either good or bad depending on what night you were there. The belly dancers and group acts were not great, but the fire dancers were quite good. The staff at the Souk were not the best at understanding english, but seemed friendly enough. The Souk was an interesting layout with plenty of options, though the quality varied, and there was enough vegetarian food even if it was a little overpriced. There was also an overpriced on-site supermarket if you didn't fancy eating out every meal. As an added bonus, the price was exceptional for a hotel like this during half term. Though this might be due to the unrest in Egypt, if the prices continue to stay the same, this will certainly be the place we stay if we return to Sharm el Sheikh!More

Really Good ....
Really good hotel at every level. The place is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Everything works and is in good order. Hygiene levels are great. Cold food is cold, hot is hot and you feel you can eat anything without fear of getting the lurgy! The staff are courteous, interested and really helpful. There are a few bugs around so you may get the odd bite. First night we arrived and ate outside and my daughter who had bare legs got bitten. All other nights the mossy spray kept them away. The Regency Club was worth the upgrade with its private pool and beach, faster wifi and complementary happy hour each evening. You also get more of a boutique hotel feel as you get to know other guest and staff. In future I will fly EasyJet and book the hotel direct. More
