Renaissance Sharm El Sheikh

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 21, 2009

Hi, I have been to Sharm twice. The first time was Renaissance Golden View Beach Hotel, and yes it is a really lovely hotel. The second we tried the Iberotel, (right across the road, we didn't know that until we arrived) because we wanted an all inclusive. I've got to say after staying at Renaissance, it was disappointing. It was a nice enough hotel, but I don't think anything in Sharm beats the Renaissance.

I've done a lot of research on the hotels in Sharm and the Reef Oasis Beach Resort Hotel has lots of good reviews. However, the food at this hotel is very poor, which is a common factor in all inclusive hotels in Sharm. Someone I know has just come back from there, and said the hotel was lovely but the food was terrible.

Please also be warned, all inclusive in Sharm does not mean that when it comes to drinks. I was charged £7 for a small shot of Baileys the last time we went.

If you want my honest opinion, you wont beat the Renaissance. Even the best hotels in Sharm serve slop for food in the an inclusive hotels, so paying for it keeps them on their toes a little.

But if you are dead set on an all inclusive then the Reef Oasis Beach Resort Hotel is a nice hotel, but the food is much to be desired.

I hope this helps. If I can help further, drop me an email! :O)

4 hours to find but worth it!

This is known as the MARRIOTT to all sharm taxi drivers hence it taking 4 hours and 3 different hotels to get there!! Hotel beautifully designed, very clean, good service and great food variation. Only downfall is lots and lots of steps especially if you were near the pool next to the beach like us. Many a time we nearly fainted on the way to breakfast as it was 40 degrees when we were there!! You will find that the restaurant next door at the hilton is fab and loads cheaper than those at the renaissance. We hated the hassle at Narma bay so staying and eating every night at this hotel ended up very expensive. If you ever get any problems find Sammi, he wizzes round on one of those buggies and he can get you pretty much anything you need - including ear drops for infections!! There is a place called Fantasia up the road where there is a crocodile show - please dont go to see this show and give this place any money, the crocodiles are squashed together and very poorly looked after, so cruel it needs shutting down.

Unique Quality: I would recommend the massage, but dont go if you mind being massaged by a man! Papa Joes was by far the best restaurant serving fajitas, steaks etc .

Directions: Furthest hotel left when you exit the airport.

This is a really lovely hotel, which there is very little to fault. We had a family suite/room which was very clean, comprising of 2 rooms, with 2 satellite TV's. The kitchen has no tools, i.e kettle ect, you will need to ask for these at reception. It was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. It is well situated for some great snorkeling. It also offers a gym, sauna and children's club. If I had to say something negative about this hotel it would be the food. It is OK but that's as far as it goes. You will not go hungry, but you will get bored of seeing the same dishes day in and day out. I would give this hotel 8.5 out of 10 or possibly 9 out of 10.

We stayed at the Renaissance Golden View last Easter (2005). We stayed on a half board basis. The rooms were lovely. Bungalow style, very spacious, light and airy, with stylish interior sand air conditioning. We had a terrace which was nice to sit and have a drink there in the early evening. There are several pools, one which is heated ('at the Managers discretion!' - needless to say, it wasn't heated when we were there). Like all hotels in Sharm, there isn't a beach as such, but a manmade one, which was lovely for sunbathing as a nice breeze comes off the sea, but you couldn't build sand castles on it. The hotel offers free beach towels.

The hotel itself was exceptially clean, and the service was second to none. All of the staff in the hotel were very polite and extremely helpful. Breakfast was really good, a buffet type with a variety of different things to tuck into, and omletes and pancakes made by the Chef while you wait - yummy! We only ate dinner in the hotel once, which was OK, but very expensive, as were the drinks in the hotel. Much better to get a 10 minute Taxi ride (very cheap) to Naama Bay, where there are a great selection of Restaurants.

The hotel ground have quite alot of steps, and so wouldn't be ideal for the less mobile, but there are also sloping walkways to get around the hotel , so if you couldn't manage the steps, you could still get to where you needed to be (for a Childs buggy etc).

I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone. Clean, Luxurious with very friendly and helpful staff.

Unique Quality: There are wonderful views of the Sea from the beach and of the gardens there. There is also a jetty which you need to walk across to gain acess to the sea, which prevents damage to the coral. The snorkelling was FANTASTIC. Just sitting on the edge with your feet dangling in the water, you could see loads of coloured fish.

The first you see of this hotel after walking along the palm-tree lined path is the main lobby and reception area, so this is where I shall commence my review and description. The entrance to this hotel is grand and ornate…floors are covered with quality polished marble, railings and banisters are polished brass – everything is on a grand scale and temperature controlled to perfection, with light piano based music setting the tone in the background.
Exiting the main building, the upper swimming pool, terrace area and Rotunda Bar are found – which has excellent views over the resort and sea below, partitioned with the waterfall that reaches to the Aqua Bar near the beachfront.
Rooms are large and spacious; with quality furnishings adorning the marble flooring that covers the entire suite – including the large, well-equipped bathroom, which has separate sunken bath and double shower with glass cubicle. Plenty of storage space is available – and the room safe is contained within the main wardrobe. Large patio doors with both a mosquito net and total-blackout cotton curtains lead onto the balcony, most rooms having a decent view of the sea below. We found the air conditioning system to be a lifesaver on many an occasion and the easy to operate controls enable efficient temperature regulation of the room.
As with all hotels there is no such thing as perfection, and the Renaissance is no exception. Despite this being a pretty new hotel, there are areas where maintenance is required – such as the odd broken step, the gardens not quite as well tended as they should be etc. In my opinion, and a view shared with some well-travelled friends we met, the issue appears to be that of a lack of overall supervision in the form of senior management…what it essentially boils down to is attention to detail, its aspects like these that make the difference between 4 and 5 stars.

Directions: Fanar Street - nearest the beach.
