“Very good but too many Russians”
Reviewed 28 March 2012 via mobile

Great staff and lovely clean rooms ..... Food was very good and a nice walk 20 minute walk to Naarma Bay.

The only down side was the Russians ....rude,loud, and in fact they are down right ignorant.

They just walk up to the front of any que and demand serving ....The hotel staff should do more to ignore them.

Apart from that we would go back as it is great to be able to walk into Naarma Bay ....but only go after 1800 when it is busy ...that way you get pesterd a lot less, one word of advice to reduce being pesterd... Do not look at them and just keep walking and try not to talk when you walk past them.
They try and talk to you in English then Russian and the German ....but by this time they give up and move onto the next victime .....If they still won't leave you alone then say to them Laa Laa .....apparently that is Egyptian for ....DEFINATLY NO

Stayed March 2012

My wife and I have travelled to Namma Bay on a number of occasions, but we keep coming back to the Sonesta Club. It suffered a few years ago for poor food choices, but on our last visit in June 2011 the food was of a high quality and variety.
The staff are very sociable, and want to get to know you, and should you take the time to talk to them they are very nice people.
We have used the massage unit, and again the staff are very professional and caring. We built up a good relationship with Wakim, who was out towel and sunbed supplier, he was great and looked after myself and my wife really well, and we look forward to meeting up with him again at the end of March 2012.

This was my husband and my 3rd holiday at Sonesta club, my brothers 2nd, and at our recommedtion a friend joined us this year. All 4 of us enjoyed our holiday very much, and have recommended it to many people. The staff are lovely, the pools are wonderful, and the hotel is so clean. For the 3rd year running we had a great time, and we are looking forward to our 4th time at Sonesta club. many thanks to all who worked so hard to make sure we had a time to remember.

Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a weeks stay at the Sonesta club and had a very enjoyable holiday. It was a lovely resort style hotel with lots of space and nice well kept gardens.
Our room was a good size and well presented and cleaned every day and the cleaner would leave special touches in the room.
We found the food very nice and they have a different theme every night. It may be for the more adventurous eater but was always pastas, rice, pizza and chips which would suit anyone. It can get a little repetitive though especially if you stay longer than a week but I suppose alot of all inlcusive hotels are the same.
All of the waiting staff and bar staff are absolutely brilliant, they cannot do enough to help you. Especially tok tok at the tropical bar.
Naama bay is only about a 20 minute walk away or you can get a taxi from the hotel for the equivalent of £2.50 each way. You do get pestered quite alot by the shops but just say no thankyou and walk away. Soho square is definately worth a visit too which is about a 15 minute taxi ride away and costs £6 each way, it is very clean, upmarket and modern, quite different to naama bay.
As for the entertainment at the hotel, I must say was not very good at all and think we only stayed to watch once, it is not on for long enough and found quite boring. We would sit in the tropicana bar where there is music played and probably more english there. The hotel does have alot of russians staying and we found them to be very rude and ignorant but we just ignored them.
There are plenty of sunbeds around the pool and you get clean towels whenever you want them, you also get the free use of a safety deposit box in your room and a minibar which you pay for but good to keep your water in. Would just like to say that it would be good if you could get wifi throughout the hotel.
Overall we had a great time and perfect for a chill out week in the sun. I would definately return to the hotel in the future.

on our second visit to the sonesta club last october 2011 we once again found the ideal holiday,friendly and helpful staff in every section of the hotel,a nicer room than previous,one with a pool view at no extra cost,everything was very clean and typically egyptian rather than the same glass and marble hotels with no personal touches.we are going again in may and september 2012 as we are truly happy there.we would definitely go more often if possible.
