Looking for Holiday Reviews for the Hotel Novotel Sharm El Sheikh?
First time in Egypt and chose Novotel Beach in Nama bay Absolutely brilliant ! Centre of nama bay like Las Vegas, but this hotel just along a beach side promenade within walking distance so you have the restaurants / bars / shops etc if you want and can retreat to the Novotel for peace and quiet. Hotel not too big , lovely pool and its own beach, free beach towels etc. Rooms lovely and clean , beds very big and comfortable.
Staff just lovely, they genuinely seemed to enjoy thier work and interracting with the guests.
Breakfasts great, hotel food about the same price as UK for Pizza etcetc, but lots of cheaper restaurats very local.
Can walk into the sea off the beach at this hotel so great for kids cant do this at every hotel because of the coral reefs. The snorkelling and fish are out of this world, like swimming in a big Aquarium or being in the film ‘Finding Nemo’ Honestly it will take your breath away ! Hunderds of fish all sizes and colours to be seen easily from this hotel beach better than the Tiran Island trips we did.
I was on holiday with my daughter so as 2 women we did get quite a lot of hassel from shopkeepers etc. But for a safe and polite reception You should go to the little Shop attached to the Novotel Beach hotel, Amir and Ahmed understand that the British dont all like haggling !, They were really very good , sell a little bit of everything and treated us with courtesy, giving a great price on stuff so we didnt feel ripped off. Buy your snorkels, masks and fins here and not in England, they were much cheaper and better quality.
We will definately be booking again to visit Sharm and will go to the Novotel beach simply for its location, beach and corals and relaxed atmosphere. ( first time I would return to the same hotel ! )
Nama bay only 20 mins from the airport, flight just 5 hours from UK, time difference only 2 hours so all in all an easy journey what more could you want GO !!!
We stayed at the Novotel Beach part of the complex. It was a great hotel. Very clean with the most friendly, trustworthy and helpful staff. Great location on the beautiful beach promenade, 10 mins walk to centre of Naama Bay. Looking at the neighbouring hotels I would say the Novotel Beach looked the nicest. Didnt drink at the hotel bar though as it was very expensive around £5 for a tin of local beer (although alcohol was pretty expensive everywhere in Sharm). Breakfast was lovely. I will definately go back to this hotel but would specify the Beach rather than the sister resort The Novotel Palms.
We stayed in the ‘ Beach side’. The rooms were probably the best we have had, large and clean. The bathroom was fairly small but had a large walk in shower which was really powerfull and always had plenty of hot water.
Breakfast was good all the usual things, eggs cooked to order etc. The breads and cakes were so tasty.
The pool was heated and never a problem getting sun beds, also plenty of sun shades if you wanted them. During the morning the entertainments team put on dancing classes and water aerobics which was good fun. The beach was also lovely and again no problems getting a bed.
The location of the hotel is great as you are near to the shops/ restaurants but far away enough from any noise etc.
The only downside of the hotel is the cost of drinks/food. It is so expensive! We didn’t eat or drink there. Generally Sharm has got very expensive to eat and drink. Wine is now £20 plus per bottle. We went diving with Onaas diving school who were very friendly and safe. Good for beginners and PADA divers. Quad bikes were fun , book at the tourst info and do a deal. Restaurant on beach was fun and reasonable (located at the end of prom towards casino) . Hilton next door to Novotel was good for lunch,
Jolie Hotel barbeque was very expensive, 350 egyption pounds each. Hard Rock was great fun, reasonably priced and good food. Pomodora was good, always busy which is always a good sign
