Everything (except the staff) in this hotel needs to be looked into as they have lost a customer and many returning guest I know will not be returning either. This s one ‘xpierence’ its one I would rather forget.
Next morning we met with David - Thomsons rep. What a great guy! I mentioned to him that my suitcase had been smashed and he told me to take pictures and report it when I got home etc, and we mentioned that we were there on our 1st wedding anniversary but that we weren't very happy with the room as the view we had was of a stone wall! At 12.30pm that day we were moved to a room that overlooked the quiet pool and it was much better.
Our room cleaner was a great guy called Essam who created some stunning towel/t-shirt creations on our bed. He also bought us a cake and made a love heart, and 2 swans from towels, it was a fabulous gesture and was more than we got on honeymoon in Mexico last year. We went down to the beach most days via the shuttle bus service. Absolutely love the beach, the pools at the hotel were too cold but the sea was gorgeous.
Food here is plentiful and lots of choice, there is something for everyone - I really cannot fathom some of the previous comments. There were some lovely cats around who I thought belonged to the hotel from some of the staff comments. The other thing I'd change is the beds - so hard, I had a bad back for most of the holiday but my husband found them comfortable so it's an individual thing I guess.
The animation crew; Hamo, Adam, Kiomi,& Roxy are great - very friendly and welcoming. We took part in a Mr & Mrs contest, which is something we'd never normally go near, but it was a good laugh and I'm glad we did it.
We spent most of our evenings around the Bleu bar before the entertainment started because we were always treated well & fairly. Ashraf and Muhammed in the restaurant are also 2 members of staff that deserve a mention for their hard work and excellent customer service.
Staying at the St Georges Three Corners resort is a bit like meeting with long lost family, once you've found your feet you really are made to feel like you belong. We hated the hotel when we 1st got there because it wasn't as luxurious as we'd normally go for but I'm so glad we didn't throw a fit and leave - no amount of luxury could compare to most of the staff at this hotel.
Overall - my recommendation is to go. Book with your rep for your excursions-at least you have comeback if anything goes wrong. Luxor is a must do, and the Bedouin dinner that the hotel arrange is also a must. Fantasia 1001 i found a waste of time and would never go again. I liked the Old Market, and you can easily walk to it from the beach, and will only take approx 5-10 minutes to walk there. The aquapark is a good laugh and I'd recommend it but again the water is cold.
Don't let the negative reviews put you off. We had to change rooms, I had a smashed suitcase, my husband lost his wedding ring in the Red Sea on the day of our 1st anniversary, I suffered from a severe mosquito allergy, spent well over £200 trying to sort mosquito allergy out, was sick at the end of the glass-bottomed boat trip, discovered we had a burst water main back home, got stung by jellyfish, and had 3 days of the beach being closed due to the shark attacks BUT we'd still go back! Mad?? Maybe, or maybe just less fickle and looking forward to seeing Melad, Hamo, Roxy, Ashraf and all again.
The beach? One word AWFUL, but the hotel pool area and staff very good and the rooms were very good. We were recommended the beach we lasted 15 mins then got a taxi back.
We will never return to Egypt because of the poor entertainment at the hotel. We had to go to Nama bay every night and the locals are getting greedier all the time.
But if you like the sun and heat as we do then this is your place.
The room was extremely spacious and overlooked the pool which was lovely. We enjoyed the animation team activities in the day and some entertainment at night but it could have been better. A very relaxed attitude to the kids club. It is hotel run -but my 9 year old enjoyed it plus the nightly mini disco. All the staff from cleaner, chefs, pool men to guest relations were absolutely fabulous and could not do enough for you. My eldest daughter enjoyed her birthday there and they made her a cake and sang in English and Arabic to her during the day and in the evening. We used the free bus to the beach and had no problems at all.
Food was good and plenty of choice but I must admit to missing the bacon (no pork was cooked). There was plenty of choice otherwise though but we would like to have had a choice of restaurants included. My children found plenty of choice to eat but each to their own I guess. We used the Belgian restaurant once and it was over-rated but not that pricey. The sunset cruise and city tour offered by the hotel were good value and excellent. The Thomas Cook rep was very disappointing and only spoke to us at the welcome meeting and on our departure date. The most annoying thing was the Brits who reserved sunbeds and never used them for hours.
Overall a fantastic holiday in Sharm - can't wait to go back.
We booked all our excursion this time through sharm club and saved quite a bit as we paid in March 09 through rep £86 each paid £35 this time had got a better tour of Cairo.
Only down side of hotel is the evening entertainment not changed or added anything really new but hey what to you expect mardigra every night. As I said we are going back for a third time that’s all the review you need.
Food was very well prepared and tasty. Good variation and a theme each night for dinner. All meals were enjoyable and waiters very helpful. Chefs all had a good sence of humour and enjoyed "playing" with the guests. Lots of great salads and veggies for those of you avoiding the meat!(but plenty of meat and fish too)
Although the hotel is a bit away from Naama Bay and other attractions, it does have a nice private beach with frequent shuttle bus service and 2 shuttles into town in the evening. Also,very fair prices for taxis too,which can be booked or picked up at desk in lobby. Not regular taxies either, but clean new private cars on site and also available for hire for self drive. There are several shops offering groceries,cigs,drinks and souvaniers open from 10am to midnight and a very unusual "no hassle" approach so you can shop without pressure.
The hotel has a sister property with daily shuttle if you want to use their 5 star beach. Strongly recommend if you wish to take in some watersports,awesome snorkeling(and I mean AWESOME)Cost is about

The reception area displays information boards as to nightly entertainment which was held in the theatre nightly. We searched for the theatre and found it located at the rear of the com-plec, it consisted of a wooden stage and number of white plastic chairs in front. The entertainment was terrible with many guests walking away after show started. There was also a horrible smell of sewage which appeared to come from an adjacent plant.
Would not recommend if you intend to stay about hotel at night.

Location is a bit off the beaten track, but taxi's from the hotel reasonable, if you want to get out and about. The staff are brilliant, and work very hard. We had the storm of the decade while there this year, garden soil was washed into the pools, ground floor rooms flooded, ceiling of reception and bar collapsed. The staff were great, they worked non-stop through the night to get things back to normal as possible. Within 36 hours the pools were clean, ceilings repaired, electric restored to the shops, and bank, and the sun was shining. I did make a comment about beds around the pool being reserved by the same people every morning, and most being left vacant till nearly lunchtime. The hotel general manager was into action the very next day, and told the pool staff not to reserve these beds. Very positive response, but the determined few, kept their towels, and still persisted in putting them on beds at 7am in the morning. I can only say we used to get very annoyed, when people from another country had this bad habit, sadly, the British have joined them.
