Lovely hotel on the outskirts of Sharm, so it was very quiet. Aprox 30 mins to airport. All the staff are so friendly. Spent our 30th wedding aniversary and everyone made us feel so special. Mix up with room having booked a sea view but very professionally sorted the next day. Thank you all for a fabulous holiday.

We loved this resort, having been to Sharm several times we opted for an adults only. We loved it the staff were great, very clean, modern.

There was a choice of restaurants included in the all inclusive. Right off the beach there is some fine snorkeling so bring your gear.

Positives:

- very warm welcome, very organized;

- Nice area of Sharm with markets and shows;

- Very romantic;

- Helpful and attentive staff always trying to find a way to improve;

- Great selection of pools;

- Quiet, clean, great landscaping with flowers and green space everywhere;

- The room and bed were so comfortable we never slept so good;

- Entertainment everyday with sports and games during the day and shows/live entertainment at night.

- The spa was amazing and the massage on the beach was great.

Negatives:

- no bank machine (so bring some cash) they charge cash or credit card at the spa, hair salon, diving center. When you use your credit card you are charged a fee, but had no choice as there was no bank machine on-site. When you do pay cash they never seem to have any change like everywhere in Egypt so end up making a profit once again.

- lack of signage. There is a lovely sports pub slightly isolated from the remainder of the resort. We tried to find it on our own using a map, then had to ask directions 3 times. When we finally located it was empty I figure because no one knows its there.

- we did the speed boat snorkeling trip (with two other couples) which was great saw the ship wreck, stopped at the island, went to three spots. However, the boat driver was reckless and iresponsible he was driving extremely fast and very close to other snorklers almost hitting one. He played chicken with other boats finding this amusing. We did'nt even have life jackets! The ride was so ruff we had to brace ourselves the whole trip to Tiran Island. One girl in the boat asked him to slow down she was scared. The staff told her "its ok he is a good captain" and laughed. We hit a huge wake and were airborn when we landed hitting hard I even sliced my arm on nail while bracing the frame of the boat almost requiring stiches. I would not take this tour unless you are the very daring type, take the large group boat as the speed boat is not so safe nor relaxing.

- don't recommend the hair salon they do not know what they are doing, save your money.

So overall even with the negatives I would go back thats how great the resort was, my regret was not staying longer.

Dear Touringtwo

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, we genuinely appreciate all feedback both positive and negative. We were delighted to read your positives and concerned about your negatives. I am making an assumption that the speed boat was arranged through the Third Party company who rent within our resort and have already asked for a report and action taken to ensure that any activities they undertake are undertaken with safety in mind at all times.
We do hope that you will visit us again and maybe stay longer next time as you wish you had on this last occasion. We look forward to being able to "Welcome you Back Home"

Sincerely yours

Wael Wali

Yes the hotel looks beautiful from the reception but staff and services let this hotel down in a big way.

Were ignored at breakfast and bar on more than one occassion...in fact im still waiting for my morning coffee a waiter was supposed to be bringing me!!!
Poor choice at breakfast,no coffee/latte machines (which is why you are served them).

Rooms were average,nothing special...

There is absolutely no atmosphere at this hotel and you also need to be marathon fit to make it up and down the very steep steps and slopes more than once a day.

I expected a wow but this hotel is a disappointment

Dear Travelbunni74

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of Montemare and also our sister hotel that you visited as part of a work educational visit to Egypt. We appreciate all feedback both positive and negative in order that we can continuously improve both the hotel and service of this newly opened hotel with a team that is passionate to "get it right" We clearly missed that mark on this occasion and understand that an Adult only relaxed environment is not for everyone. We do hope that you may have the opportunity to travel to Egypt again and will visit us in order to gauge for yourself the improvements we strive for.

Sincerely Yours
Wael Wali

We enjoyed our stay here in December so much we had to come back in April for more. Hotel still not crowded, so easy to find sun loungers where you wanted to be and get food and drinks quickly. 4th swimming pool opened whilst we were there (deeper than the others) and so few people knew about it we had it all to ourselves the first day and so had personal attention from the barman and towelman/lifeguard all day.......we felt like Royalty.......on other days just 6 - 10 visitors using it. All pools now pleasantly warm and comfortable to swim in and of course the snorkelling off the hotel's pontoon over the coral reef just breath taking.........

Dear Trevora

Thank you for taking the time to write your review for the second stay with us in Montemare, we are of course delighted that you returned to visit us again after your December stay. I think that you will have found a difference in the weather and hopefully the additional facilities we now have open. The newly opened Relax pool is proofing to be a great place for those guests who want a more tranquil location in which to sunbath and swim and of course be made to feel like Royalty !
The team looks forward to being able to "Welcome you Home" for the third visit !

Sincerely yours
