We, my husband and 1, arrived at the Grand 26th Jan for 1 week and our only regret was not having booked for longer. The staff were amazing, extremely helpful at all times and very efficient. We have travelled extensively all over the world and staff at The Grand were some of the best we have ever come accross. In fact, being as we have decided not to do anymore long haul holidays, 1 think they will be seeing us there 3 times or more each year.
1 particularly want to mention the head bakery chef to be found in the Sharm Resturant, unfortunately I've mislaid his name which 'may' be Achmed. He couldn't speak hardly any english but was amazing and extremely helpful to me. also Magdi in Sharm who was also very helpful. We found the food to be very good in all resturants and particulary Fusion. The African night is certainly worth going to, and look forward to going next time.
Mahood kept our room 733 spotlessly clean, was always smiling. The room was the only thing we were disapointed in and 1 must say rooms really do need refurbishing as thats the only thing that lets the hotel down, which is a shame as everywhere else is so good. 1 did ask about upgrading to a suite but couldn't do anything about that 'till the following day, by then we didn't feel like moving again, as were only there for a week.
The grounds and pools are beautiful, very well kept and plenty of sunbeds everywhere to choose from. A lot of hotels in egypt aren't right on the beach and this is a big plus.
we shall be returning on 26th may, providing the flights are available, and will stay for 2 weeks, so hopefully will get a suite this time and 1 believe they all have sea views, so that would be lovely, sitting on the balcony looking at the sea! Can't wait to go back!
