Concorde el Salam

We have booked the above hotel for our honeymoon, we were told at the time of booking that we could get an upgrade subject to availabilty - of course. However we would really appreciate some honest feedback regarding the sports part as we have read mixed reviews, the one which concerns us most is that we were advised at the time of booking that the sports is all part of the same complex and yet some reviewers have said that there is a bus that runs there from the main complex, so just how far is it?? also there seems to be issues with flight noise? could someone please give us some honest feedback as this is our honeymoon, the most important holiday we are going to take and we are very concerned at the moment.

Hi Lee, We stayed at the sports side at Xmas 2006 and are going back in 4 weeks time (Easter). We dont usually stay at the same hotel twice but are making an exception this time as we really enjoyed it.

I believe the standard of both hotels is the same, ie spotlessly clean, excellent food and really friendly waiters, pool staff etc.

We used to walk to the beach everday from the sports side and it took us a maximum of 10 mins.

When we were sunbathing by the pool the planes used to fly over but we soon got used to it, we never heard any noise when we were in our room or inside the hotel.

The food by the swimming pool was excellent, (the burgers were to die for). There is an Italian resturuant (really nice food) on the main complex which you can use for breakfast and lunch but you have to pay for the evening meal but you do get a discount.(i believe it is 40%).

When are you going? If it is after Easter then i can update you when we return. I believe you will have a great time,

P.S the snorkelling at the hotels reef is great.

Thanks for the info, we feel more at ease about the hotel now. We are going in July, so your feedback after your trip at Easter would also be most welcome. Have a good trip.

The inlaws stayed in the sports side last month and they said that the hotel literally backs onto the side of the airport runway.They showed us the lights of the hotel across the runway from the terminal building.They said that the noise was a pain.

We have stayed at the Concorde 4 times and are going for our 5th at Easter, we have always stayed at the main hotel but have been on the sports side, literally over a wide road from each other, and it doesnt seem to be as busy round the pools as the main side. The staff all over the hotel are brilliant and really add to a great experience.

Noise was an issue for us last time we went because of building works going on in neighbouring site, but you don't notice it and will have a great time.
