Going downhill rapidly

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 14, 2007

I have stayed at this hotel twice before but will not be returning. Despite the central location, the hotel's rooms and facilities are in dire need of refurbishment. In fact I think that it may be too late to refurbish as things like plumbing are now beyond repair. Its a great shame as the hotel has a beautiful beach cut into the rock face and most of the staff are friendly, polite and efficient. The hotel is now so run down that it should have at least one of its stars removed.
I would not recommend this hotel when there are other, more central hotels that offer better, cleaner facilities.

Directions: Up the steps behind the Lido hotel. To the left of the Helnan Hotel

Halomy Hotel, Naama Bay

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

We really didnt know what to expect, but were very impressed on arrival (please remember we are students though) Our room was clean with a sleeping area, living area, TV, fridge, balcony and small bathroom. We did have the best view in the whole hotel looking directly onto the bay.

The hotel itself consists of a number of white washed apartments, not costa del sol style but a more traditional style. The swimming pool is very cold, but it was january. We were at the top of a hill looking down on the bay, there were hundres of steps to climb to get up (i would not recommend it to anyone with walking difficulties) The front of the hotel is nothing to look at, actually it was a building site and we nearly cried when we saw it (we had jut left people off at the Hilton) but inside it is fine.

Half board, meals we exciting the first few nights but soon we got bored of couscous and rice. We also lost a stone each due to dodgy tummies, to put it politely. Each night there is entertainment at dinne rin teh form of traditional african dance, belly dance and music. I enjoyed it, but towars the end it got a bit tiring.

By the pool there is a snack bar which serves food all day. There is also a mall beach and pie with another bar down some steps, good for snorkelling.

Staff very friendly, but there were no women staff and we were quite a novelty. Also, security guard seems to know everything about everything, so keep it all discreet.

Unique Quality: great views

Directions: Naama Bay

Just got back from this hotel. We booked in January and chose this as it was easily the cheapest we could find - they allowed us to have a room for 5 and gave us two free kids places. It's always a problem as we've got the third child (ages 12,10,8).

I was a bit worried before we went as the Odyssey brochure says not suitable for children. I think not suitable for under 5s would be more accurate.

The Halomy is situated in a prime spot on the headland at the southern end of Naama bay. About a 10 minute stroll into the main town. Great views over the sea and the bay. Rooms are clean, air conditioned and well looked after. You have the use of a fridge in your room. Pool is very safe and there's a lifeguard there at all times. Food was great. Our kids loved the unlimited pancakes at breakfast and there was a good variety of dishes in the evening. We went half board and bought superb pizzas at the pool bar for 22E£ for lunch.

There is a little shop on the site and the guy in there is very fair. Perhaps a tiny bit dearer than in Naama bay for some things but only 10% max and no hassle. If he hasn't got it he'll try to get what you want for next day.

The Halomy is laid out like a little village and you go to the restaurant for meals. Grounds are well maintained although there is the odd uneven path. Like everywhere in Naama the grounds are watered regularly and the earth seems to stink when this is done, but nothing to worry about as it's the same all over the town. (bit strange when you first smell it!).
There is a dive centre on site and although we didn't use it they seem to be well equipped and reasonably priced :Sharm-divers.

The Halomy is a little tired - it could do with new sunbeds in particular - but for value and staff it is 5 star.

Unique Quality: There are two things which set the Halomy apart: Firstly the staff are BRILLIANT! Extremely friendly and very helpful. Fantastic with the kids. Arif "Mr Bean" at the poolside bar was particularly helpful and they have a very professional Masseur called Mohamed. My wife is a beauty therapist and rated him very highly and very reasonable pricewise.

Secondly at the bottom of the steps the Halomy has a top quality reef with loads of fish and coral in a safe little bay. We went on a boat for a day trip but saw just as much on this reef.

Directions: On hilltop overlooking Naama Bay at Southwest end

This hotel is advertised as 4* on the Medhotels.com, it is not, I would say 2 - 3*. We stayed All Inclusive, we got treated very differently from the Half Board guests, we go very limited drink selections, one day we recieved a wine glass of beer, we got glasses of water,not bottles, the bottle were available to buy in the shop for 2LE or 0.20pence (sterling). We basically felt very unwelcome!!!

The room was OK, the view of Naama Bay was excellent.

We had to vacate the rooms by noon, although we paid to extend the room until 3pm the All Inclusive ended at 12.

I would not recommend staying here All Inclusive.

Unique Quality: The views are great, swimming pool nice.

Service and Friendliness is rubbish!

Directions: Above the Jetty.
