Reading some of the lengthy reviews of this rather lovely gem of a quintesential" small and friendly" (thompson's description in their brouchure) hotel made me lol!!

A party of three of us stayed from March1st for 14 days, we LOVED it, So much so we are going again in 12 days.

If you read the Iberotel's description of facilities it does what it says on the package but then!!!!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.

I cannot describe the most wonderful setting the restaraunt is at especially for breakfast, on the sea watching all the diving boats prepare for the day. The cool breaze was very welcome in the heat and we were there for march 1st, we love the heat it did not spoil any part of our holiday, (Iberotel should charge for the air con outside)!!

When I book a hotel/or resort I always want a sea view room I have stayed at 5 resorts in Sharm all of them were 5* none of them offer the views you get from the Iberotel ALL ROUND, The Ibeotel IS ON THE SEA.
If you stayed at the 5* Jollie Ville just on the prom, the only sea view from their prestigeous rooms woul be accross the promenade past the beach and squinting through the palm trees!!

We have booked to come here once again in 12 days time, not for the decore in the room, not for the cats at breakfast, not for the noisy beach (did not afect us), not for the shop keepers who hastle you, just say (halas, imshi) they will leave you alone,and not for the AI, we had breakfast only which was always delicious and there are so many restaraunts and bars in sharm, you can also eat in all the hotels too, at most reasonable prices, a different restaraunt every night! (can't fault it), we are coming back for the fabulous location and sea views and for the wonderful way the staff take care of your every need 6* in my opinion. Why would I want to book elsewhere?

"Iberotel Lido, Momtaz, Maya maya! Look foward to seeing you soon, Shukran.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking boat docking area.

Just returned from our third visit to the Lido at Sharm and the usual standards were maintained. This time some little "extras" such as fresh finger pastries delivered to the room, and biscuits from the housekeeping staff.

Mustafa at the pool bar was a bundle of fun, shaking cocktails at the pool bar, and marram was his usual attentive self in charge of towels sun beds and sun and shade. Nothing too much trouble for him.

All staff are brilliant including the manager who makes himself available to the guests. Finally a gift of Egyptian hibiscus tea infusions and instructions as we left.

We are planning a return later this year.

First class, very relaxed,

The Lido is a great hotel in a perfect location. Most of its attributes have been commented on before, but for me its the breakfast location that sets it apart. As well as the indoor section there is a lovely terrace on the water's edge. Perfect for waking up in the sunshine.

The lunch time snack menu was great and dinner by the water romantic (if its not windy!).

Its downside ? The rooms are now looking a bit dated and oddly no drawer space - neither detract from a great hotel, but its not super swish. You can hire a kettle for a one off 8 Euro and if you bring your own tea bags you don't need to pay for replenishments. All rooms face directly onto the sea, with about 5 on the top deck facing the pool. Also no problems what so ever with noise.
Would recommend and wil definitely stay again.

Room Tip: All are good - I thought higher floors better.

We took advantage of the complementary transport from the airport to the hotel and the driver was waiting for us at the airport. Once boarded we were given complementary cold drinks and cold compressess to wipe our brows - a nice touch. We were quickly checked in and reception later phoned to ask if everything was alright. Rooms with a sea view had private balconies and I did note that on-suite bathrooms had a clear window, located adjacent to the recessed room entry door, that was fitted with a louvred shutter that anyone could peer through if they tried!!

The hotel is designed like a open planned ship with the top deck accommodating the pool/jacuzzi area with stunning views over the bay. A private beach is laid to one side with direct access to the sea. You are given a token for a beach towel which you could replace daily and snorkels can be hired daily. We went B&B and a good selection was offered at breakfast with all staff attentive and friendly. The whole hotel complex was clean and tidy and it was good to see that an environmental campaign had been instigated to recycle cans and plastic waste, The hotel is within easy access of the centre of the bay and the boat trips start from just around the corner. My only critisism was Internet access that was intermittent and expensive (£8 GBP for two days) Overall a great hotel in a great location and well worth the postive reviews given.

Room Tip: Upgrade/ask for a sea view room

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Lido Sharm Hotel is a charming and intimate boutique style hotel directly facing the Red Sea water on Naama Bay, and in front of the plateau of Om El Sid hill. It is only two minutes walk from Naama Bay center and the heart of Sharm El-Sheikh City and only 11 km from the airport. Looking out from the roof of the hotel is like standing on the prow of an ocean liner as she reaches out for the sea. This stunning vista over Naama Bay is matched by a beautiful landscape, a clean sandy beach and a friendly, convivial and intimate atmosphere. Hotel facilities include exquisite restaurants and bars we have a pool and beach bar and La Folie Terrace Bar. As well as a range of leisure activities. Full reception facilities are supported by a 24-hour concierge service and Internet access in the lobby. Diving and snorkelling experince would not have easier with thier "Blue Ocean - Dive Club" diving center taking the advantage of being next to the mian boats jetty of Naama Bay. After a long day snorkeling just experiencing the bustle of downtown Sharm, take a refreshing dip in the pool before retiring to your room. Room Service is 24/7, and medical assistance is available on request. ... more   less
