“Nubian Island, Sharm from Margaret”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

The hotel was set in beautiful gardens and the accomodation was excellent, but the food was dreadful. Standard of hygiene was very poor. It seems that the catering was designed for Italian and Russian guests (there were very few British there) The Managing Director George, Guest relations Ruslana and James Leighs Animation were fantastic members of staff. Very helpful and extremely polite, There is no courtesy bus into Naama which meant taxis if you wanted to leave the complex. I can throughly recommend the beauty therapy - best bit of the holiday was coming home. It is my 4th visit to Sharm but this time was disappointed.

we were very happy with the hotel from start to finish!! the food was lovely even though there could have been more option to breakfast as i am a very fussy eater, we changed bungalows a few days into the holiday as we rathered a bunglaow near the entertainent pool where the animation team were situated through the day, there was always entertainment on in the evenings with a singer in the lobby bar where we spent most evenings and once or twice went to the theatre to watch one or two of the shows. the staff at the hotel were extrememly helpful and couldnt do enough for you! gerogino was our favorite and james who was part of the animation team! they even took the time to learn different languages and could speak better welsh than me!! overall one of the best holidays we have ever been on and the people in the hotel the same time were amazing! we really did not want to leave!!

A very nice green hotel with a good friendly staff. Bungalows are ****, but very clean. Our daughter liked the warm swimming pool, kids club was interesting too. Food is OK, the waiters are always polite. It's always good to have a rest and this hotel helps to make you vacations unforgettable!

This was our second visit to Sharm first time at the Nubian Island. Our first impression was not good as the reception staff checked us in and then instructed us to wait twenty minutes for the room key. We were invited to go for lunch meanwhile but we were somewhat abandoned and not even shown to the dining area. We eventually arrived at our bungalow which was clean and tidy and nice and central to the amenities. The pool staff were great Mohammed delivered our drinks, the towel boy on the island pool always ensured that we had a clean towel and the room was always clean and tidy with some great towel art most days! We were a little disappointed in the food, the salad would turn to ice in the chiller and when it eventually thawed it went all limp. We had upset stomachs for the last few days of our stay, I pride myself on my "cast iron stomach" and I'm vegetarian but looking on the bright side this did give me a super flat bikini belly! The lobby bar was where we spent our evenings this was pleasant with a live singer and dancing should you wish to partake. Mainly Italians during our stay which was fine by me, they are polite and courteous and always first up on the dance floor. On our last day check out is at noon and we were to be collected at 5pm for an 8pm flight. We went to go for lunch at 1pm only to be turned away by staff and were informed that we would have to pay (approx £14 per head) because we had checked out, we were however allowed drinks and snack from the bars which we made do with. All in all a good hotel shame about that last impression on our final day.

Our second visit to Sharm but our first time at the Nubian Island. We had a great time. The food was excellent the hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were fabulous - especially in the bar, poolside and the animation team. A mid week reception for the Brits was given by the hotel management and we were made to feel very special. The resort was quiet and the hotel was only a third full due to concerns from tourists due to recent events in Cairo. We can say that none of these concerns were necessary as we felt safe at all times - even outside the complex and at the airport. Beautiful beach, great snorkeling and really enjoyed the quad bike experience - its a must do when you visit. Highly recommend this hotel - we have returned relaxed, tanned and have gained loads of weight!! well worth it!! The Shaw Family.
