We stayed here in september 2010, just by way of checking how far down the rankings this place has gone; not that it could fall much further down

You can not fail to notice that every review that derides this hotel is quickley followed by review that rates it highly.

Now those that do this must have very limited expectations or live in what i can only describe as challenging conditions.

No right minded person would rate the Al Diwan anything other than poor, after our experience:
On our next trip we made sure we used trip advisor FIRST and stayed at the Serria, now thats a place a world apart from this place

To the point trip advisor, should look into the point of orgin of the reviews which put the Al Diwan in a good, I strongley suggest that they are generated by management...... if that is not to much of a contradiction for this place.

Room Tip: go eles where

All throughout my stay nothing was too much trouble with the staff who are always happy to help. Free shuttle bus throughout the day to Sharks Bay Beach and twice a week to Naama in the evenings which is not to be missed, there is something for everyone! Weather lovely hitting 26 in December! Bedrooms were spotless and cleaned every day with new towels. Pool towels are available outside to take as and when needed. A very relaxing holiday with lovely friendly, helpful staff who really make your stay enjoyable.

Staff - Very friendly, who we found very helpful.
Room - Standard - shower, beds and most importantly it had air conditioning! However we did hear of couples that didnt and can see that this would very off putting. Air conditioning is a must, so we were lucky to have it!
Food - we didnt go all inclusve, but what we saw we werent impressed. Ate once in the hotel and that was enough! Some great restaurants in town centre and all along the beach.
Hotel - has a small pool, but you have to be up early to get a lounger by the pool. Small bar with the odd themed night, but we tended to stay in Sharm.
Location - About 15mins drive away from the airport and about 10mins drive from Sharm town centre. Al Diwan is about 5 min drive from Sharks Bay - dont walk it, takes forever!
Sharm El Sheikh - great place with so many things to do. Would definately recommend going to Cairo. we went by bus - very tiring but so worth it. Snorkling and camel ride through the desert is worth doing too.
