Stayed In sharm several times before at the Reef oasis and Concorde el salam, both of which are superb resorts that i would highly recommend, I shall refer to the Concorde during this review as it is next door to the savita. I paid £8.5k for six of my family over the xmas 2009 period, a substantial amount, first of all its not really all inclusive, those drinks that are free and this would depend what bar your at and what mood the staff are in are only available up till 11pm, the main bar is lthe piano bar, it resembles a private residential home for the elderly complete with piano and no entertainment, you cannot get wine as all inclusive, you can get it from the resturaunt next door till 10pm and attempt to sneak it into the bar, wine is not available at the pool bar, which incidently does not have bar stools like most pool bars as these were ripped out during a drunken russian brawl. The snacks are actually a bread roll with a slice of lettuce and pepperoni, unlike the concorde that do burgers and chips, hot dogs and other snacks, their pool is an infinity pool with bar stools! The main resturaunt is more like a military barrack cookhouse with horrid food, we eat in there 2 nights out of 14, there are plenty of other places to eat and mcdonalds and KFC do delivery to the resort. the design of the buffet is very poor and does not take into account russian manners, its a square block in the middle of the resturaunt, and is approx a 3rd of the size of the concorde's buffet, the xmas gala dinner almost came up to the daily standards of the concorde. Poor choices, poor layout and no pride taken in presentation. Constant noise around the pool from construction work taking place locally. All 3 rooms stunk which the thomson travel rep agreed was the plumbing but did nothing about it, no hot water between 5pm and 6.30pm. Animation Team arew great if you have served in a japanese POW camp and dont mind watching guys dress as cheap trats in shoody costumes, a far stretch from the concordes superb acts and extensive costume range, there is little or no live at the savita but there is a lots at the concorde including a sound proof air conditioned night club. we booked a night in the indian resturuant, very disapppointed, poor menu, no windows, cheap furniture, cheap decor. Dont sit on your key card and crack it, despite paying £8.5k for the holiday they will still charge your for this and give the same card out to the next customer, I am an amputee and left my crutches at home by accident, my Thomson travel rep got me one childs crutch and one adults from the hotels doctor then charged me a fiver a day for them, rubbers were perished and they were falling apart. A very disappointing holiday and resort, I will never stay here again or travel with Thomson again. top tip - turn your wrist band inside out and eat at another resort.
