The staff are very helpful & friendly, with no exceptions that we came across.
Entertainment is not up to much, and most of the teenagers we saw (including ours) were bored afetr a few days, but Naama Bay is only a few minutes away by taxi (LE50).

In general the hotel suited our needs but I think it is more 3 star than 4 star.
Rooms: We had a large 2 roomed villa which was very spacious with a large balcony and very large beds and bedrooms. Only downside was faulty shower, which they fixed.
Food: was good however choice was limited to the buffet restaurant which was only open during certain hours and no snacks e.g Pizza, burgers etc were readily available when the 1 restaurant was closed.
Pools: were good. The top pool was heated which was a bonus for our 3 yr old.
Bar: Service was very slow and drinks given in very small glasses. Only 2 bars: one near reception and one near the main pool which was very difficult to access for people who were very young or people with mobility problems.
Entertainment: Absolute rubbish. Luckily it was only for half an hour each night.
Kids: Limited activities for them.
We enjoyed our stay at Sharming Inn but I will be returning to a First Choice Holiday Village for our next holiday.

We only went B & B as we knew we would be out and about. Our room was on the ground floor, so could be pretty noisy at night as was very near the bar area, but only 2 nights were a big problem.
The room was spacious, and very clean, lots of storage space, nice table & chairs area, bathroom was a good size and the shower was great and always had hot water. Service in the bar area was a little slow if you're not AI, and they never have any change, but if you insist you won't sign a bar tab then they will find change.
Breakfast had lots of choice, cereal, pancakes, salad, fruit, danish pastries, bread for toast, lots of other bread rolls, boiled eggs, beefburgers!, potato type things, sausage etc
We didn't see any entertainment as we were out each evening, but they did advertise to say what was happening.
Shops avail in hotel selling usual touristy things but also basic things like plasters, toothpaste etc. Also, can book diving trips.
Reception v helpful, will even ring your rep if you need to speak to him - beware of Egyptian timings - our private transfer back to airport was half hour late, so don't leave it late to set off, just in case. Reef Beach is just a short stroll away, and is lovely, get your ticket from hotel reception, we didn't go to hotel beach but lots of other did.
We did the 2 day trip to Cairo - brilliant but tiring - take your pillow and a coat - you will stop half way at a service station in the desert and it's freezing cold! If you go quad biking better to go in the evening - if you book through the rep make sure he books an evening trip - ours didn't for us.
All in all it was a great base and there are lots of shops & restaurants in the area, you need to go out onto the main road behind the hotel to find them.
We will be going back in a couple of years when more of the building work is finished, and would stay at the hotel again.

The hotel was absolutely brilliant, the rooms were cleaned daily and the cleaners would make great little things with towels e.g. Flowers, crocodiles,swans etc. (but don't mention to staff as they get wrong).
The pool was out of this world the best pool I have seen or used.
The food was really lovely except they tend to repeat it quite often and they adore Beef out there, they always made something with Beef. We also had a family member who was a vegetarian and they catered for her brilliantly.
The staff were always friendly and willing to help especially bar staff (good sense of humour). We always used the pool bar rarely the lobby bar.
The only thing that let the hotel down was the entertainment, during the day they do a few bits like water volleyball and games such as pool or table tennis but at night there was nothing. They did a 30 min show where people must take part and they rarely had a clue what they were doing.
Other than that this was amazing I would recommend doing the monastry trip and the quads (go through your rep and take a camera), also don't forget to tip, don't do it all the time. We would tip the staff if they carried our bags when we got there and left, rest of time we would tip the restaurant after Tea and the bar staff every couple of days.

The weather was perfect (around 25+ degrees) with a lovely cool breeze most of the time, it was also great to have air conditioning in the hotel. Sharm Beach was not that great, I expected to be clean, smooth and sandy!
My children had a good time, but next time I will prefer to stay in Naama Bay where it is more convenient for them. Sharming Inn is situated in a quiet place and require a short taxi ride to most destinations.

The pool is out of this world it is so beautiful.
The hotel room was cleaned everyday and the lady folded my towel into different shapes which was a nice touch.
The food was brilliant however I did come back with severe food poisoning so I would advise people just to check that what they are eating is cooked properly. However on a more positive not although I was poorly this would not stop me going back I wanted to go back this year but it was fully booked.
This hotel is close to Naama bay and also the old market place. Taxis are really easy to get just negotiate a price before you start driving and that will ensure its really cheap.
Children's entertainment was also good even though I am now nearly 20 I still have the catchy songs in my head!!!
The staff are also very friendly and you bond with them in seconds they also remember your names! If anyone has booked to go here have a great time!!!!
