10/10 Amazing

03 November 2014

Fantastic Hotel

We have just returned from the RAM, a family group of 4 adults and 3 children. We spent a week here from 20-27 Oct, our 7th family visit to Sharm. On arrival our three rooms were in different parts of the hotel, reception quickly fixed that and placed us all in ground floor rooms between the relaxation pool and the "heated" pool (it's called that but I think it's only heated in the winter). The rooms were absolutely fine, nothing swish but clean and roomy. The beds were great, Egyptian beds are always hard but these were better than we have had elsewhere. There was always hot water and plenty of towels. Being on the ground floor was really good as we could nip in and out of each other's rooms and be in the pool in a few steps. It took us a while to find our way round the complex as it's big and the map provided isn't very detailed. The Tagine and Italian restaurants were opposite us, with the Asian and Mediterranean ones on the other side of the building facing the Activity pool, and the German one in the middle joining them up. I found the buffet food a bit hit-and-miss, some of it was OK, some of it was bland. We quickly learnt to stick to the live cooking stations, in particular the pizzas in the Italian for lunch, the salad station and burgers at night and the croissants outside the Tagine in the morning. The little bread buns with sesame seeds were amazing! Drinks were fine, the wine was surprisingly good and chilled. We rarely got drinks served to us at meal times but we just sent the kids for soft drinks and they enjoyed playing waiter. The staff worked really hard just clearing away used dishes and cutlery and barely had time to stop and get drinks so we didn't mind. The fresh donuts and pancakes on the terrace at sunset were fantastic, and the ice creams from the Veranda bar went down a treat during the day. The kids loved the slushies and non-alcoholic cocktails which were in every bar. The Columbus coffee bar was ok but we found the staff in here the least friendly in the whole place. Staff who stood out for us were Awad at the aqua park bar (the only one we met who remembered our drinks and brought them to us) and Ahmed our cleaner, also the lifeguard at the aqua park whose name I didn't get. The rest of the staff were friendly and helpful but they stood out. The aqua park was fantastic, the kids (and their parents!) could not get enough, even our 4 yr old loved it. The jetty was long (I measure it at 600m) but it's a lovely walk and a proper wooden jetty, not a floating pontoon that moves with the sea. There are platforms along the way where you can sit down or snorkel in shallow water, and at the end is a huge platform with beds and access to the sea. Unfortunately we only had one visit to the end where the wind was low enough and the tide high enough to snorkel off the reef, which was amazing. We enjoyed the evening entertainment at the beach, the kids joined in the disco and most of the later acts were enjoyable. The male singer (Johnson?) who sings beforehand was really good. The hotel was very clean, I didn't get ill at all (the kids did but probably from drinking the pool water), we saw staff constantly cleaning. I had one main niggle, which didn't detract from the stay but stopped it being perfect. The second half of our week was much busier than the first, and people were out putting towels down before 7am, which is against the rules but no staff moved them. We saw rows of beds reserved and no one claiming them all morning, meaning we couldn't sit around the kids slide pool. Really annoying and should have been policed. The other niggle was I saw lots of people feeding the fish off the jetty. As a diver I know this is bad, it's also on the hotel signs that it's forbidden, but peopel were doing it and no one was stopping them. For me, this hotel was almost perfect, the only thing it didn't have was a sea view from the room (but we were very happy being near the aqua park so we couldn't have it all) and the jetty was a bit long if you wanted to nip for a quick snorkel. There is supposed to be a flag at the start and end of the jetty telling you if it's safe to snorkel but it was rarely at the start, meaning a long walk to be disappointed. Regarding the Russians, we found 95% of them to be no different to us. There was a small minority whose manners were atrocious, but I just beat them at their own game and quite enjoyed batting them out the way at the buffet! For our family group it couldn't get much better, and I think we will return in the future.
