Both my fiancee and I have stayed in the finest of hotels that include the Ritz Carlton, Miami. The Clarence in Dublin and various London hotels.

We wanted a winter destination but busy work commitments only allowed us to vacate for just a week. Egypt sounded perfect with under a five hour flight.

Myself being particularly picky, I was pleasantly suprised with everything about the Hyatt. It is very clean, the staff are very professional and the decor and pool settings are wonderful.

There were no bad points except be prepared to wait a while for your food to be made if you choose to dine Al La Carte.

Also, every fixture and fitting in the hotel corridors including all the pictures hanging on the wall we not straight but to be honest thats it.

As the Hyatt is a non-all inclusive hotel, you don't get the 'all you can eat and drink' rich chav types there.

A great winter destination. The new years eve party was excellent.

Don't forget, the buffet menu is not always cheaper. I hope you enjoy your stay should you choose this hotel.

As we approached the resort we knew our holiday was going to be amazing! The pools, the beach and the coral that could be seen from our peer was great! It was enjoyable swimming with the fish whenver we pleased withuot having to go diving! (although we did that as well). The staff at the hotel was great and the breakfasts were amazing. a very pleasant stay!!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh Resort Hotel

Excellent time at the Hyatt

from scubadivingbabe
Have just returned from a fabulous two weeks at the Hyatt Regency. We were given an up grade to a full sea view room with king size bed. This was worth £9 (English) each per day in the Thomson A la Carte book. I think we got this beacuase I e mailed the hotel to ask for a quiet and private room, and to ask a few questions about facilities.

Room facilities were excellent. Robes and slippers. 3 phones. Travel kettle. Mugs, sachets of tea, coffee and creamer - just phone room service for free top ups. Heavy tumbler and smaller glasses. Soft drinks in mini bar. Ice bucket, and ice machine near by.

Two full size wardrobes and several drawers. Real hangers with grippers for trousers. I asked for more the evening we arrived, and they were brought to the room in 5 minutes. The safe is the easiest to programme I have seen, is at waist height - and is free of charge.

Separate shower cubicle and loo cubicle within the bathroom. Tissues, illuminted magnified shaving mirror, face cloths, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and shower jel in bottles.

Hair drier in dressing table drawer. Electric displays outside door for clean room, or privacy please. Sheets changed every day. Over bed fan as well as air con. Wall light on balcony. Tables in and out both big enough to dine. Sun bed on balcony. 4 large scatter cushions.

Running total of bill available on tv screen. Movie channel and sports channel as well as sky news and CNN. Voice mail on phone.

We had half board and only spent up to our allowance at the fish restaurant and the thai. Food choices were good, although the buffet and a la carte in cafe fresco could be extended. The souk is a brilliant experience, with entertainment thrown in!

The pools and spas are amazing. My wife did the free diving lesson at the pool and then did an intro dive in the sea. Brilliant. Snorkeling excellent.
Very good security. We felt totally safe and relaxed, and would definitely return.

We love this hotel!

We love Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh Resort.We were there two years ago.Since that time food and evening shows have become better.We difinitely come back there again.

Wow....

from Doddsy
Myself and my girlfriend went to the Hyatt towards the end of February and after reading the reviews which were so helpful in helping us decide where to stay we felt it was only fair to write one ourselves.

Basically the Hyatt is fantastic. We had a standard room although how they can call them standard is beyond me as they are of high quality and we really felt at home when we were in the rooms.

The service at the hotel is exemplary, the staff bend over backwards to ensure you have a pleasant stay and your every whim is seen to.

There are plenty of restuarants to choose from (although we felt the food served between them was a little similar) although if you wish to dine in the Thai or have an evening meal at the Beach Hut you should book in advance. The Thai though is easy to get a table but we recommend you book early for the beach hut as it is only open two nights in the week.

The pools are very nice. Regular cleaning keeps them looking pristine and the 2nd level pool tends to do a brief intro to scuba diving around 11.30am for those who dont know if its for them or not. The top level pool is well heated and has a lazy river and the bottom level pool is the quiet pool and is for adults only.

The beach area is again fantastic. There is access to the water from the beach itself although we would recommend you use the jetty as this is less damaging to the coral. If you do go in from the beach you should wear either flippers or sea shoes to protect your feet - one of the days we saw an elderly couple standing just feet from where the previous day we had seen a lionfish - D'oh!). However going in off the jetty puts you straight in amongst shoals of fish and you wont be disappointed.

If you wish to go into Naama Bay you can get either a shuttle bus or use the Hotels mercedes taxis (cost approx £5) and in the town there is a huge amount of choice in resturants although we would advise you be prepared to be hassled if you walk anywhere near the shops.. most of them are fine but a few are bit too persistent for my liking (even for Egyptian standards).

In all we would not hesitate to come back to the Hyatt and are infact looking at coming back next years. I have put a couple of pictures here but there are more available from the candid shots link on the 1st page.

To end this I would like to repeat the title of this review which was the first thing we said after arriving at the Hyatt - Wow...

I know this is nothing to do with the Hyatt but a couple of things to look out for at the airport - Anyone who offers to help at the airport will want paying - in english, and usually a £5 note. We spurned all offers as we are perfectly capable of dragging along a suitcase with its own wheels. Some of them may try to GRAB your luggage to give you no choice - this happened to us and only firm words from me stopped them from taking the case from my girlfriend. The airport can also be chaotic when it comes to leaving but this was the only point during the trip where we got anywhere near fed up..

Pleased we chose a Hyatt

from hanahighway
We stayed at this resort at the end of February 05 and was yet again pleased we chose a Hyatt. The resort is huge, with 3 swimming pools - one of them is heated. It has decent sized beach area for the Hyatt guests only and a neat jetty for the divers and snorkellers. I'm not a strong swimmer myself, so I hired a life jacket for £4 Sterling a day and checked out the large colourful fishes - it was very good fun!

2 out of the 4 nights we ate at the thai restaurant, Sala Thai. The food was exceptional. The tables outside on the balcony with a fantastic seaview are very romantic and even have outdoor heaters but can still get a little windy/chilly. The restaurant on the beach, The Beach House is another winning eatery there. The food is delicious accompanied with a fabulous location and excellent friendly service. I must agree with the other writer on the Souk. The food is very standard at the Souk despite its wonderful setting sunken into a courtyard area and the concept of buying food with tokens is rather good fun but the entertainment has plenty of room for improvement. The buffet breakfast has a good variety to choose from.

We went down to Naama Bay once and got hassled so much by the locals, we didn't return and happily spent most of the time at the resort. To be truthful the shopping area at Naama Bay is quite a good size, but there's not an awful lot to buy, however, probably worth going there once.

If we were to return to Sharm, we would definitely choose this Hyatt resort again and highly recommend it to you also.

Top class hotel

from sooze
We arrived at the Hyatt about 5 in the morning and the Concierge apologised profusely because we had to wait 5 minutes at check-in! Like we were bothered! We were taken to our room on a golf buggy which was good fun. Room was great.

Had a meal in the outdoor restaurant where you receive a bag of coins, which you exchange for meals. Breakfast (although very busy) had ample choice. We attended an Egyptian buffet which included most Egyptian delicacies. All the meals we ate in the hotel were lovely and we had very good service.

The barmen were great fun including Saba (ask for him!).

The pools around the hotel grounds are perfect. A lazy river, cascading waterfall pool, which is quite deep - so no kids! There was also a separate kids play area with plenty to do to keep them occupied. There is a tunnel leading down to the beach, with a beach bar and diving centre. We did a tri-dive but to be honest you see just as much snorkelling! We seen a blue-spotted ray which was brilliant. There was a large selection of fish to be seen within inches of water and the coral was better than I seen on the Great Barrier Reef. All this at our hotel. Excellent!

We booked a boat trip with the travel office in the shopping mall and although the trip was great the travel arrangements didn't really go to plan and we ended up getting a taxi to another hotel to catch the boat!

If you stay anywhere in Sharm el Sheikh it has to be here! Hotel beaches with sand mean bad snorkelling and whereas if the beach has a lot of pebbles etc it is generally good snorkelling. You need snorkelling shoes which you can buy quite cheap in Sharm.

The hotel is probably one of the furthest away from the nightlife although very close to the casino, but it is well worth the extra taxi fare.

Third visit and still great!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is the only Hotel that I have ever returned to in all of my extensive travels. it is easily accessable from the UK, especially sice the Airport has been improved at Sharm! It makes for a wonderful and relaxing week. The Hotel staff are wonderful. To rooms are cleaned to a very high standard. It is worth paying for an upgrade for a guaranteed sea view as there will be nothing in front of the room except the sea! The house reef is fantastic. I dive whilst in Sharm but the snorkelling can be just as good in terms of fish. There are two local blue spotted rays, if you are patient enough to stay still until they come out from their hiding place! It is very children friendly, but for those of us without children the Adult only pool is fantastic, and peaceful! Contrary to some of the views posted, the breakfasts are wonderful, fresh fruit and a chef to cook whatever you want. And the view from the breakfast terrace is stunning! take a paper and have a leisurely breakfast, the sun isn;t going anywhere all day!!!

t stay anywhere else!

from Darcey
We have just returned from the Hyatt. We had a fantastic time.

We used Hyatt Gold points to upgrade to the Regency club. This was well worth it. The Regency Club private beach was quiet and secluded as was the pool.Something as a teacher I don't normally experience during a half term trip. Soft drinks are free all day and there are free canapes and alcoholic drinks from 5-30 onwards. If you don't have a Gold Card for the Hyatt, open one on arrival and your stay ( even on a package trip) will earn points for the Regency Club or for free extra nights for next time. The upgrade I believe is about £20 each a night if you pay. Even so, it's well worth it.

Don't stay in the centre of Naama Bay where some of the other large hotels are. This is just like Benidorm. Full of fast food and Football shirts.

Make sure you snorkel. The snorkelling just off the Hyatt beach is outstanding.

Ignore the weather forecast. We took warm clothes as the top temperatures for February ( the coldest month ) were around 60 degrees, according to sites like Yahoo weather. It was at least 85 every day. It's a bit cooler at night but you just need a jumper.

This was a fantastic trip. The staff at the Hyatt were attentive and friendly. It's a gorgeous hotel and deserves its number 1 rating on this site.

Wonderful Hotel, Great Service, Superb Snorkelling!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I returned from a week's break to the Hyatt Sharm three days ago, and we had a wonderful time.

The service was genuinely 5 star and the quality was reflected throughout the hotel.

The food was great and was good value. Having read a previous review I was somewhat concerned about the quality of breakfasts, but these were great - fresh pancakes, juice, omelettes... Only thing they didn't do was fried bacon, but it is a Muslim country so I think it's fair to expect that the food will be prepared Halal.

What we particularly liked was that the reef in front of the hotel was absolutely superb. In fact we saw more special fish than on the snorkelling trip we did into the National Park! Plenty of clown fish, rays, lion fish etc. it was really top-draw.

Also, the swimming pool layout was really well done, keeping pools separate for those wanting to be quiet, whilst having more activity focussed pools for noisier/younger guests. These included a hidden waterslide and a lazy river to float along in. I usually don't like those kind of things but they were really well done at the Hyatt.

If I was to say anything negative it would be that Sharm itself is undergoing a lot of development so there's often noise from building work going on. It wasn't a problem for us (an we were quite near it) but there is a new hotel being built right next door.

Wonderful

from Sreetcleaner
Stayed in the Presidential suite which was a litttle disappointing as the jacuzzi was not working. However the living room was a good size as was the balcony. The private gardens attaching to the presidential mansion was not as well cared for as the Royal suite but overall good.

The general facilities at the hotel were excellent and the children loved the pools.

The resort of Naama is just a waste of time. With clients from hotels such as Hyatt, Four Seasons etc one would expect better oppotunities than stuffed camels and brass platesbut really there is very little that is worth buying. It is all rubbish which is a great shame as a great deal of trouble has been taken in building the resort.

Good hotel disappointing food

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed in this hotel for a week in October 2004 and found the standard of accommodation to be high, with nearly all rooms having superb views over the bay.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the quality of the amenities was also very good.

The only real thing that let it down was the quality of the food, especially the breakfast, which at best could be classed as average. Having said that, there is an exceptional Thai restaurant that is well worth a visit.

Top Local Tips for Sharm El Sheikh

The hell that is the airport! You don't need to get rid of your water at the first security check (at the entrance to terminal two) or even at the second. it's only once your passport has been stamped that you need to ditch it. Stock up on magazines/newspapers before you get there - they don't sell any. Do bring some tissues - they run out and buy chocolates on the plane. The queues in duty free are hellish!

Pontoon over the reef Even if you don't dive or snorkel have a walk down the pontoon along the beach, you can see many beautiful fish.
