My husband booked this holiday as a 65th birthday treat two weeks before we travelled, my brother and sister-in-law also decided to come along. It was our first visit to Sharm el Sheikh and the Melia Sinai and we were not disappointed. We had a lovely garden room, right by the pool and beach. Food and service was excellent and the staff could not do enough for us. Special thanks to Samir at the pool bar for his attentive service all the week. The weather was great in the high 20's all the week. My husband and brother enjoyed the snorkelling off the jetty and it was lovely to wall along the promenade after our breakfast in the morning. We ventured into Naama Bay and also Soho Square which were interesting.
The only blip in what was a great week was that when we arrived there was no one to meet us and we had to get a taxi, but again the hotel were great and sorted out our contact for the return. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would go back.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are excellent

We arrived at the hotel after a long day due to a 4 hour delay for a fuel leak on the plane out of Manchester.The hotel was really helpful and ensured we had a meal in the restaurant even though it was very close to its closing time. The decor in the reception and the lobby bar was really impressive and very well laid out. The staff both in reception and this bar were absolutely superb and did speak many languages but the majority of holidaymakers in this hotel did speak english. Our room (4223) was adequate for us but the bed was very hard, and the bathroom was not really up to 5 star, nor the balcony furniture which was in need of renewal. The pools were excellent and with one heated during the winter was a bonus, the pool staff especially Camel were great and gave fresh towels and laid them on the beds for us every day. The gym if you could call it that was not up to much nor in our opinion the spa (which was 2 beds in a room at the back of the gym) the one at the Sinai was fantastic and the staff were far far better. You could walk along the promenade which was paved for about 2 miles except for 2 parts when you had to go on the beach. Our only complaint which we voiced to the manager was the food (poor choice, funny mixtures and not very hot) Overall the staff were friendly, very obliging, and extremely efficient. Overall we would rate this a a maximum 4 star property.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room which seemed to have easier access. Al rooms have a sea view.

Just got back from two weeks all inclusive at Melia Sinai a fantastic deal booked through sunshine.co.uk who I highly recommend. Rooms are spacious with good sized balcony and wonderful sea views. Food could be better but certainly not the worse we have ever had. We went a couple of times into Naama Bay - would not want to stay there as the hassle of getting round the shops and restaurants is exhausting.
Staff at Melia Sinai are brilliant and made our holiday extra special. A special thank you to Waleed, Mohammed, Ahmed and some others (sorry I have forgotten the names!) who couldn't do enough for us. The Gin and Vodka were like parafin but whiskey, rum and brandy were good. Wines and beer are also good. The entertainment team worked really hard to make sure everyone had a good time so special thanks to Lena (I wish I had just half of your energy and enthusiasm), Lenka, Frederick, Giorda (sorry if I've missed anyone off) you were all brilliant. If you wanted to join in you could but you weren't badgered if you didn't want to.
Would definitely go back and if we can get the same deal next year, we will be there.
Don't confuse this hotel with Melia Sharm - that is part of the same group but next door to Melia Sinai.

We booked this holiday back in October as a holiday of a lifetime for my 40th, at First Choice Warrington. Paid ££'s extra for an upgraded room and after a lot of reassurance from FC (it wasn't clear on the paper work that we had paid for the upgrade) On arrival it was most obvious that we were in a standard room. We met the Thomas Cook rep who was very pleasant and helpful & provided us with a final statement of our booking that showed that we had paid for a basic room???

So what happened to the extra money we paid for the better room??

Rant over, will never book with First choice again.

Melia Sharm is Grand!!! If you can do the snorkeling, it's mind blowing!!:) also the O'Grill at dinner time! Waleed doesn't like to see an empty glass!!

The 'canteen' is ok, far too much to choose from, by the time you have chosen what you want to eat it's gone cold on your plate!!

Lovely beach, we didnt use the pool's as the music was a bit BOOM BOOM!

Don't book a 'glass bottom' boat trip if you can snorkel. The sand buggies were a blast, but don't get taked into a DVD, total waste of £15....

Overall a great holiday, made better by other people that you meet: Jane & Dave, Pat & Tony!!!:)
