I spent 4 nights/5 days at festival shedwan, please notice that there is festival shedwan and there is smart line hotel, both are in the same hotel. Smart line is better but also not very good for a vacation. At shedwan, you can have the worst food ever, I barely find something to eat at the restaurant. The stuff were friendly but the animation people were very rude and unqualified. There is only one club there and it is not free you have to buy a ticket and it is not worth it. But actually, its fair for what you pay. It is really really cheap.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with friends

Large enough grounds beautiful . Several beaches . Rooms for all tastes - bungalow storey housing. All windows look out over the park and the sea. I advise you to better yourself in settlement talk to the administrator - he will advise you and pick a room for you ! The room we got a light, airy , with a large balcony, comfortable furnishings, and excellent service ! We visited a large company - four families with children .. And all the friends enjoyed it, there was no room or dissatisfied service. The entire staff understands and speaks in Russian . Loved the spacious and clean beach (which is very rare !) , Where you can always find a place ! Set of flowers and greenery , cozy rooms . Everything is just wonderful . Food very good level! And the drinks and the food is very good quality and pleasant to use ! Very tasty cooked fish and meat. For children there is a choice ( and there are dishes made ​​from milk ) . Delicious cakes, pastries and cakes is great ! Polite , friendly and attentive staff at the restaurant - thanks to them ! Great animation team never did give bored! They are every day sports heals and raise everyone's spirits on shows. Thank you guys !
We are just delighted with the unexpectedly positive emotions , though seemingly drove in three star hotel, it comes to the level of four-plus ! We loved , and we now advise BEM ! We are grateful to the hotel from all of us . Come again and must be mentioned to you !

Room Tip: - in case number 5 rooms for families better; - Rooms are closer to the sea and have morning freshness

Food was rubbish,cold, everyday same food over and over again, no taste, flies everywhere, room is dirty, dirty sheets pillow cases, hotel name even changed to something else when we reached there we found out it was now called smart line. Can't get out of hotel because road works going on so could get run over. Reception staff (ali) is rude and has no smile or welcome guest should get sacked or made the cleaner even the cleaners were more help then him. I wouldn't recommend my worst enemy to even go to this hotel. However bar man Mohammed is a great guy who always welcomed us n always had a smile boat tour man Osama Ahmed was the best thing about this terrible holiday him and his team provided a great service great food and enjoyed the boat trip if anyone does end up in this hotel by mistake do go to boat trip with Osama his a great guy he should be in charge of that hotel he knows how to make customers n guest happy n have a good time

Wished I had spent more money on a better hotel, it says it was four stars but don't believe it....I'm being nice by giving it two.
Stays at hotel ibis or motel one are cleaner and better.
I had to reread all the reviews on here I still can believe that it is the same hotel we stayed at.
It is a shame there is no category just for food and drink. There would be no stars given.
Possibly the worst ever.
No variety and badly cooked with no flavour. It was not just me , almost everyone was complaining... 2 lovely Dutch ladies even brought mayonnaise to every meal because the chicken was so dry.
The outside of the hotel was a construction site...
Waiters were rude and ignored me on a regular basis , I went two mornings with no coffee.
The pool was nice and the rooms were ok.
However the soap dispenser fell off in my hand and they cleaned the room but didn't leave any toilet paper.
Drinks were served in whatever glass or cup was on hand , I got wine in a tumbler and people got beer in wine glasses.....and twice there was remnants of other alcohol in there.
The beach was beautiful but soooo badly kept. Rubbish everywhere and one sunbed was smeared in bird feces.
A mother and daughter checked in and went to their room and there was actual excrement in their bed that the staff had made....NOT acceptable..

We enjoyed are selves because we chose to not let the bad hotel and service get us down, I couldn't wait to get back to Germany just to get real food.

In December of this year my husband and I decided to visit Egypt as a honeymoon. Was planned budget ,we so long peering into hotels, chose Shedvan Festival . And do not regret a single minute ! I had already contacted with the hotel management with request to provide a good number, so a special thanks to the concierges of the work with tourists Yulia and Irina .
The hotel has a large green territory , very clean . 3 large beaches - is enough space for all visitors of the hotel. Beaches probably one of the best on the coast ! The rooms are spacious and bright . We lived in the Building number 7 , we were more than satisfied. Every day we met a beautiful view of the sea. Room cleaning daily . Underwear for 12 days changed 5 times , more than enough ! In the room everything is working properly , no claims can not be.
Every day at the restaurant we met smiling restaurant administrator Mohamed . Special thanks to him , he's a real pro! To met such a stream of tourists who behave in a boorish, and he remain so attentive , it's a big job! The best impressions to bartender Said , no reaction to the audacity of tourists , professional work and responsiveness!
The breakfasts and lunches , and dinners were very tasty. There was always plenty to choose from . Meat, vegetables, fruit, sweets and pastries - all abound ! Thanks to the chefs for their work and attention !
The whole day was an opportunity to have a rest as well as spend time actively - thanks animator team! Every evening was interestinga program,it was not boring ! Thanks guys , you are very good !
Who lacked the evening program , could always go on the beach in Atlantic pearl restaurant . There every evening disco, shisha and pleasant service . Special thanks to Ali , he evoked warm feelings all visitors !
Hotel have some minus, need a small hotel renovation , but thanks for the service and attitude of the staff, we did not pay any attention on this ! The hotel management with respect and encouragement to tourists who continue stay their choice at this hotel! We are honored to be invited to such a dinner as newlyweds .
What can I say - just thank you for a lovely stay! We will come back to you and to all of my tourists , I will recommend this hotel! Such a warm atmosphere should be cherished !
