Oriental Resort Review 1
Just come back from 2 weeks @ Oriental Resort. Had a fab holiday – would return to this hotel. Staff v friendly and made the holiday really relaxed and enjoyable. Room was clean and comfortable – bathroom could do with a bit of updating but think this is just due to age of hotel (nothing bad tho). The gardens of the resort are lovely and well kept. The main pool is where the families tend to congregate and is the noisier pool. The pool nearer the beach is much quieter if you want to chill out. Great to be able to enter the sea from the beach or jetty (some hotels can only go in via jetty due to coral reef) – beach shoes def worth purchasing tho but are dead cheap. A welcoming breeze seems ever present as it is hot in Sharm! Beer and ouzo are just fine!!!! Food was nice with good variation and the Oriental Night was lovely – specialising in Egyptian cuisine.
Lots of people seem to comment about the Russians – and there are a lot of them here but, we didn’t encounter any problems with them like some have said.
Our air con did go wrong and we had a leak from a tap in our bathroom. We contacted reception and did have to chase them up for the air con (Egyptian time I think!) but it did get sorted quickly once the chap came to the room. The bathroom leak was sorted in about half an hour…so not bad really.
Everyone we spoke to did have a dodgy tummy while out there at some point (different hotels) but TBH we went expecting this and the tablets you can get from the pharmacy (just outside hotel) worked well with us. Imodium doesn’t really do it tho. We couldn’t put it down to any specific food we ate or drink we had so perhaps it’s touching the money or tap water when showering we don’t know.
Def recommend the desert buggies and speedboat trips from “Sam” (Saied from Aaron Waves – office on beach). Also did the Tiran Island snorkelling boat trip with Aqua Nabq (Mohammed Ali – office on beach) which was a nice day trip out. Went into Naama Bay for an afternoon and evening. Afternoon was v hot (no breeze) and town itself was quiet so shop owners were v keen to get you into their shops! The town came alive at night tho and shop owners were more chilled! Be prepared to be asked to look into their shops and barter away if there’s something you do want!
We also did a PADI scuba course with Camel Dive @ Laguna Vista (“Hi Phil”). If you love snorkelling, it’s well worth trying scuba out in Sharm as it is AMAZING!
Overall, v impressed for the money we paid and would def go back, esp if want fab weather!!!
Oriental Resort Review 2
From the moment you arrive at the Oriental Resort Hotel you are greeted with a warm smile and friendly staff. The atmosphere is relaxing and welcolming and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are clean & spacious and enjoy lovely views of the immaculate gardens and sea beyond. The food and service is wonderful, and of a very high standard. I have stayed at this Hotel 6 times with my sisters and we always want to go back! As the motto says “you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend”
Oriental Resort Review 3
Have just spent 2 weeks at the Oriental this is my 5th visit what can I say well this is one of my favourite places.Have travelled to many parts of the world but this is what I call home when you return the staff treat you so well and cant do enough for you even down to reserving the same table through out your stay. when booking holiday the room was with a garden view but was upgraded to a sea view the room was very clean and spacious.sheets and towels changed daily dont even get that home.on the whole every member of staff at this hotel ensure the guest have an enjoyable stay nouthing is to much trouble.The walk through the gardens to the beach is like being at the chelsea flower show they are so well kept when you get to the beach you can walk into the sea unlike some hotels in sharm you have to use a jetty its very safe for children as the water is very shallow there is a jetty if you are a keen snorkler where the water gets deeper.Plenty of sunbeds and not packed like sardines i do like my space.Would like to say a special thank you to eddie murphy you will find him in the restraunt he really is agreat guy and so funny also ahmed and al hady they really look after you.Karim in the pit stop bar makes lovely cocktails.Have booked to go back september cant wait
