"love it" Sunrise Island Garden Resort Tip by ash_111

Sunrise Island Garden Resort, Sharm El Sheikh: 1,518 reviews and 5 photos

not long back from sunrise island gardens resort, i went my mum,dad, husband 17 year old daughter and her friend. it was an over all good holiday. my daughter loved it. wants to go back next year. the staff were very friendly, some too friendly, (when my daughter and her friend was sitting there, the 2 mohammods at the lobby barkept bringing her down drinks without her ordering them, anytime she went up to the bar she got served first always.. and they always knew what she wanted. kept winking at her, calling her over and telling her how much they loved her. also, hany from the dinnerhall, loved her. would never pass her without smiling, saying hello, asking her how she is and winking at her. anytime the two kids were sitting there the staff kept them going and playing jokes on them.. they just loved them because of our accent. :) also around the pool, theirs a guy that calls himself tiger, amazing man. we gave him plenty of tips and he always done his best for us. anytime the girls were about at night, he always asked them if they were ok and one night there was some trouble in the hotel he walked them to their room. very nice guy. :)
the rooms were not the best, air-con was S***, tv kept knocking of and the FOOD WAS AWFUL! none of us barely ate, must of lost about 2 stone each by the time we came home. then you can use the hotel phone to call mcdonals or kfc.. if you do it, go collect it in a taxi, the kidsordered it as they wouldnt eat any of the other food and it took 3half hours to come. then when it did come it was the wrong order and had to be sent back and then took around another 2 hours to come, by this stage they were ready for bed.. and when you ring up to complain the hotel has the cheeck to tell you to pay for the call, when it was them on the phone mumling! was not happy, daughter was ready for a fight tbh.
not much to do at night tbh, go in to soho or namma bay. however if you have teenage girls with you i suggest you dont take them to namma bay. we literally just stepped out of the taxi and daughter got took my the hand, hands around waist on down the street into a shopping centre. now theman wasnt old he must ofbeen about 23, he started kissing heron the kneck, wrapping his hands around her haha, it was funny as her dad was with her and she was embarresed.. offering 100 camels and chickens for her! worth more than that. you are constatntly getting hassled every step you take, however soho isnt like that but tbh thereisnt that much to do in soho.
the animation team was brilliant, girls took a liking to bob! and tbh think bob took a liking to the girls too, always winking and flirting with them, ofcourse girls done it back. they say it made the holiday alot better. alex and jess were very friendly and always made an effort to speak to you. had alot in common with alex as she is from around the same area as us, however entertainment itself.... NOT GOOD! infact rubbish, that and the food is the only things that put me off..
