"Radisson B&B Beach side" Radisson Blu Resort Sharm El Sheikh Tip by temashana

Radisson Blu Resort Sharm El Sheikh, Sharm El Sheikh: 2,956 reviews and 1 photos

Room v big & roomy. Staff kept it exceptionally clean. Rec a Marine/Sea view rm-extra but worth it.

Food was ok. Some places better than we expected & some worse. Do not rec Tradewinds rest. The Brasserie v good, ate there 2x- it's most expensive but service was brill and food gorgeous.
Pizza at the Grotto v good. Beach & pool bar serve sandwiches and such throughout the day, all pretty average.
We only had the buffet at breakfast, & did not eat there for other meals. It looked ok, but we were not keen to deal w/ trying to get our food with everyone running around at the same time.

Really only a couple of issues with hotel. One that the room towels are so hard they can scratch your skin. Pool towels are not like this, so not sure why they are not laundered the same way.

Other issue being the bar/staff. Some of them do try, but they do not know how to make proper drinks. Do not make mistake of getting mixed cocktail as you will be charged a fortune & there is virtually no alcohol in it. The bar staff needs to be trained to reflect the standards of where the guests are coming from. Weak drinks and slow bar staff just do not work at this type of resort.

Billard table in lobby you can hire & it's rarely used. Not v. expensive either.

The staff were v accomodating when we want ed to change rooms from 2 single beds to a king size. Booking must've been mixed up, but they resolved it v next day and moved us. We were able to have a late check out which was very helpful.

All in all I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again. Next time I will bring a private stash of liquor though. (you can't by this in town, some places sell it, but it's all pseudo stuff, like Fineland vodka and Gordoon's gin, instead of Finlandia and Gordon's)

Hotel is near the airport, and occ. you will have a v low flying jet zoom over you, but for the most part this was not v often.

There is also a lot of construction going on, but the side we were on already has an hotel that is open, so we were not disturbed by it.

Unique Qualities: Pool was beautiful and very refreshing. Kept extremely clean. We saw a guy vacuuming it almost every minute of the day.
Beach was nice but you could fry sitting out on it so we stayed by the pool. Lots of shade near pool for those that don't want to burn to a crisp (as surprisingly many seemed to want to do)
