A few tips:
1 Take good insect repellent (but don't have allergic reaction to it like I did!)
2 Don't take imodium if you get the trots - go to the chemist along from McDonald's in Sharm before you get ill and buy Antinal or similar and plenty of it - it really works, you should check the flaps on the box for the price if you buy it anywhere else - it's 50le yes 50p a box but some will try to get you to pay 500le

Suggestions that this is something to do with 'how it is in egypt' are completely false there are plenty of hotels that do it extremely well.The entertainment is a joke, the food dangerous and tasteless and the staff useless.
You can have a great time in Sharm especially diving, that's why i have spent so much time there but if you want to go stay at another hotel and eat out in Naama bay, the food there is excellent and cheap and as long as you avoid the tam tam restaurant you won't get food poisoning.
I strongly recommend the camel bar and its restaurants, the indian is better than my local in Southall as are the pizza's! You will spend the same money or possibly less staying somewhere else and eating out every night rather than going all inclusive at this dump and then you don't get sick. You know it makes sense.

It is very clean and well maintained. They renovate all the time. The food was excellent and so was the staff, very friendly and service-minded! We stayed at a superiorroom near beach 3 and the second swimmingpool, this area is more quiet.

We never had any problem getting sunbeds the towel bloke was a star everyday he came straight to us, we had not given him a tip at this point.
The only thing I feel this hotel could improve on is some where to sit in the evening whilst the entertainment is on.
They had some great shows on while we where there the was, the traditional twirling guy,then a dance show we also had a show which involved a group of scary looking lads with fire eating walking on glass ect, the kids loved it.
Whilst its not ideal drinking out of plastic cups you have to remember people will be walking around the pool area barefoot so it does make sense when you think about it. Shards of broken glass are not plesent imbedded in your feet.
I would go back to this hotel again for sure, so don't be put off by negative comments, try it for youself and enjoy.

On arrival we expected cold beers and water in the room fridge, we didn't receive this.
The food in my opinion was atrocious, luke warm or cold, a definite cause for food poisoning, which my girlfriend and some friends seemed to get a dose of. The food was pretty much the same food day after day. The pizza place was dire, tasted more like cheese on toast. The Chinese restaurant was very good but had to be booked. The beer was like lemonade and the staff didn't have a clue how to make a cocktail.
The hotel had 2 lovely swimming poools one with a slide and wave machine but the water was so cold no one used the pools at all, they remained empty all day.
The beach was not very nice, no nice jettys to snorkle from.
The resort was full of Russians which shouldn't be a problem but they are THE rudest most ignorant people I have ever met, absolutly no manners, letting doors go in your face with no sorry. Everything in the hotel was focused around the Russians ie; the food, the entertainment.
One saving grace; the staff,they couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, I didn't come across one member of staff unhelpful.
I would visit Sharm again but definitely not this hotel and would not recommend it.
