Sharm el Sheikh
Sharm Bride Aqua Resort & Spa – 4 stars
Poor level of service, dirty dishes, poor food, old furniture. It seems that ants, flies and mosquitoes lived here for six years instead of tourists, who did not want to leave the hotel even with the arrival of tourists, and the hotel administration does not seem to insist.
Luna Sharm Hotel – 3 stars
The hotel was liked by local tourists, so it is not surprising that “during the day by the pool can not relax – very loud Arabic music.” In addition, outdated furniture, the hotel has not been repaired for a long time, and the beach is not cleaned.
Mirage Bay Resort & Aquapark – 4 stars
If the previous hotels were previously clean and comfortable, this hotel (formerly LILLYLAND), as the author said, without changing its traditions, and receives guests in dirty territory and offers vacationers a meager menu and unripe fruit. Many Egyptians rest in the hotel.
Sunny Days Resort Spa & Aqua Park – 4 stars

Tia Heights Makadi Bay – 5 stars
Old furniture from the 80s, lack of hot water, broken air conditioners, problems with sewage, diluted alcohol and much more that was mentioned in the above hotels. “Pros of the hotel: gorgeous sea and the best beach in Makadi Bay with a gentle sunset, low tide is not felt, there is a living reef – with masks to swim SUPER !; large water park; three pools are heated in winter; the hotel has great animation. So at a low price and if you do not care about service and old rooms, you can, “- wrote the expert.
Royal star beach resort – 4 stars
You should not focus on the photos offered by the tour operator. Because a “cozy hotel” actually turns out to be a “hostel-like hotel, dirty, old, and shabby.”
“We are not talking about any comfort here! Dirt is everywhere, cigarette butts are lying around, the furniture in the hall is dirty, with stains, broken mirrors, bed linen and towels are shabby, as if they are 100 years old. The food is bad, the restaurant is also dirty, “said the travel agent.
Hawaii Le Jardin Aqua Park Resort – 4 stars
Beautiful and green territory – and this is where the pros end, the author said. “Almost 90% of vacationers – the local population, with all the ensuing: children at the tables, immediately they change diapers, everywhere garbage, noise, commotion, a huge crowd in the restaurant. There is a choice of food in principle, but to get it and feed your family, you need to have martial arts skills, “- said the author, summing up that not always attractive prices and good reviews – is a reliable way to choose a decent hotel.
