“Top Notch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2012

Absolutely brilliant hotel, well worth the 5 stars! Read the reviews on here before I booked and we certainly were not disappointed. Sea view room as ordered, nice and clean hotel, 4 pools and during the time we stayed plenty of sunbeds poolside and on the beach, the water around the resort was ideal for snorkelling in, the food was excellent too, a wide variety was available from all of the restaurants within the resort, ate at coast, La Rotunda and the mexican and cannot complain. The staff get a special mention though, from the minute we stepped in we got excellent service from everyone, yes english is not their first language but everyone we came across was polite, friendly and went out of their way to ensure we got excellent service, even the few words of welcome, have a nice time goes along way. Would definately recommend, its about 20 mins away from naama bay, but having been to naama bay during my visit you don't want to be staying close to it! The hotel area is peaceful and relaxing, just as how most would want it!

Room Tip: Choose a sea view deluxe room, the views are well worth it

It was a five-day stay, May 5-9, 2012, just a relaxing break by the sea. Hotel personnel friendly,smiley and helpful.The overall service was impeccable,hardly ever encounted in many other places in Egypt. The resort territory is clean and green with several pools, but located on hills with multiple steps, which can be a challenge for families with kids and elderly guests.
Another challenge is the jetty entrance to the sea, which makes it hard to swim due to "windy-wavy-shaky" access state, the coral reef is very beautiful though, once you get there. A regular entrance is possible only during high tides, i.e. early mornings and late afternoons.
The recommendation is to take "all inclusive" package, since the a la carte prices across the resort are somewhat close to Moscow ranges :).

Room Tip: SeaView or Sea Front Rooms should be taken here, since most of the Garden View Deluxes are hidden bt...

Once again had a flawless week at the Renaissance.We have been going there a couple of times a year since 2005 for a week long break Excellent service from polite professional staff, the suite was clean fresh and well maintained. the swimming pools and sea front areas had plenty sun beds, where the attendants and waiters who could not do enough for you. Excellent location on the reef corrals and sea life easily accessable by diving or snorkelling from the hotel pontoon. The hotel restaurants cater for all tastes and a special thanks to the boys in Acapulco Joe's for the best beer drunken prawns!

The trip to Egypt was my birthday gift for my girlfriend. We travelled from 24.04 to 01.05.12 during one of the best time of the year for visiting Egypt. The air temperature varied from 31 to 34* C and the sea temperature was 22-23*C.
We went on HB basis because from 7 days 2 were dedicated to full day trips (Ras Mohamed and Petra in Jordan). Another day we spent it at El Fanar beach because we are snorkeling lovers and we wanted to see the marine life also in El Fanar bay.
The reason why we have chosen this hotel is similar to the motto of the hotel: "Discover the reef".

1. The Room
It is very spacious with a big bed, lot of room for clothes, very old TV (needs replacement), minibar which we did not use due to very high prices, nice bath with bathtube, shower, big sink. Slippers and robe were not provided by the hotel (this is a minus).
We stayed in the southern part of the hotel in the 1700 wing so we had to walk a lot and climb many stairs to reach the lobby. This did not bother us we like to walk mainly in a resort with beautiful grounds, plenty of palm trees, flowers, waterfalls and trees.

2. Restaurants and bars
We ate in the Coast Restaurant. The breakfast was very diverse, I liked a lot the Benedict egg and the orange natural juice. Also you could eat beans, boiled or scrambled eggs, ham, cheese, jam, sausages, fruits (apples, bananas, oranges, peaches, melon), milk, cornflakes, croissants and pancakes.

The dinner was also nice with different themes (Italian, American, Egyptian, Arabic). Plenty of dishes to choose from: chicken, seafood, beef, rice, potatoes, pasta, kebab, greek and caesar salads, soups, steaks, several cakes and fruits.
The drinks were not included in our HB basis so every night we were spending around 45 EGP (LE) - 7.5 USD (final price) for one beer and one pepsi. Be careful regarding the prices for drinks and food. They do not include 10% city tax, 12% service charge and an additional 1% tax. So to all the menu prices you have to add up 24% to reach the final price.

Zinzina Bar: Here we ate one night when we arrived late at dinner at the buffet restaurant mainly due to the hotel fault which is showing on their local TV Channel a wrong timetable for dinner (up to 11pm instead of 10pm). We ate a nice mushroom soup and New Zealand lamb ribs.

Rotonda Bar: Here we spent a lot of time because at every drink you took you are receiving a 20 minute free wifi so you can check your emails. Also Renaissance Burger is very good, is made from beef and the french fries are delicious. Do not order cocktails - they are very pricey (around 63 EGP / cocktail) and the quality is very bad. Turkish coffee is ok and has the same price - 16 EGP - like the other varieties of coffee: nescafe, espresso, cappucino.

Aqua Bar: Here we ate a very delicious Movenpick icecream: coffee, pistachio, lemon-lime, blackberry and wallnut flavours are great. 12 EGP / cup. They are serving also the same drinks as in Rotonda and as in Beach Bar.

3. Sea, beach and pools.
The resort has a jetty from which you can swim with the fish or you can dive.
If you are a reef lover, come with your own mask, tube and fins. You will see plenty of groupers, surgeon, butterfly, angel, trigger, lion, puffer, parrot fish and grunts. There are from time to time banks of blue jellyfish but do not worry they do not bite. Only the yellow ones (like a bulb) are biting. Do not step on the corals or harm the fishes. There are plenty of coral types which are very lively.

The beach is a stepped one and had plenty of sunbeds due to 45-50% occupancy rate.

The hotel has 3 pools for adults (1.6 m maximum depth) - one near the lobby, one near the beach at Aqua Bar near the kids pool and playground and one near Acapulco Restaurant in the northern part of the resort.

4. Surroundings
Very close to the hotel you can find belly dancing and snake taming shows at Alf Leila Wa Leila - ticket price is 110 EGP.
Close to Alf Leila you can find an italian mall Il Mercato with fixed prices where you can find Mc Donalds, KFC, Costa Coffee, electronic devices and toys shops and opposite to it you can find several local boutiques with perfumes, papyrus, fake clothes and other souvenirs.
There is also a Metro supermarket for buying drinks and food which has convenient prices. You can not find alcooholic beverages here.

We have been also to Naama Bay. We have paid 25EGP one way for the taxi and we were interested to buy a Mares vest from Naama Mall. Here you can smoke shisha and enjoy free wifi. We did not try, we are non smokers. The prices in the supermarkets here are very high. Avoid and go to Metro.

One day we spent it in El Fanar private beach, we paid 40 EGP instead of 60 due to negotiation. In the price you will receive one 0.5L of water and fruit sandwich. In the right part of the jetty you can see 3 clown fish hidden sometimes in annemones and plenty of angelfish from which the emperor is the most beautiful one.
The best moment we had here was when we spotted a Napoleon fish - very very nice.

5. Trips
Trips are very pricey if you buy them from the hotel. We went to Ras Mohamed - great snorkeling trip - and also to Petra - one of the 7 Wonders of the World - very tiring but worth it.

In the end I will suggest the hotel managers to change the TV from the room, to reduce the prices for food and drinks (very high for Egyptian hotels), to change the ingredients for cocktails and to update the information they broadcast on their local TV channel.

Room Tip: If you do not like to walk ask for a room near the lobby, if you like pools ask for a room near the...
