Best holiday yet!
Beautiful hotel, the setting is lovely. The attitude of the staff is if there is a problem it is sorted out immediately. I have never had such quick service, the staff are all happy and can't do enough for you. The reception area is on the ground floor and is beautiful, comfortable and relaxing. There is a piano bar and a balcony area with music. Afternoon tea is served here. You have one staircase to go down to restaurants the pools and the beach, once you are on this level everything is flat. There is a lovely walkway between the beach and the hotel for a stroll and an Italian restaurant and Indian Restaurant in this area. There is a shopping mall where you can get all your nick knacks, a coffee or meal. There is also an area for the men who want to watch sport on the TV. On the beach there was a bar where you could also get snacks. Also the towels for the beach. I loved the idea on the beach of if you don't want to be disturbed by people selling thing you can get a small sign to hang from your umbrella and no one will approach you. Fabulous holiday do as little or as much as you want. The boys round the pool would come around in the morning and spray you with scented ice cold water, sounds terrible but in 40c heat you here people shouting and me! Later they come round with ice cold scented flannels, fabulous! Its the little things that make a great holiday. I hope to be able to go back next year? I have been to Egypt 7 times to different areas The Baron Palms is the best. Well done to all who work there!

Great place to chill out and relax
We chose to stay at the hotel rather than the resort as we thought it would be quieter. It was a great choice mostly couples and a few families with well behaved children. The hotel is well presented (not the most luxurious I've stayed in) but it's well maintained and spotlessly clean. The food is varied and if there's something you want the chef will cook it for you! The animation team work hard and are a really friendly bunch of youngsters doing great PR for the hotel. All the staff had a smile for you and never seemed to forget your name. Pool and beach (2minutes walk) had free towels and snack bar. No one appeared to abuse the all inclusive facilities so no chaos. A truly relaxing place to stay.

perfect winter break
we are a mature couple who have just returned from the baron palms hotel in sharks bay,after holidaying many times over the years in egypt and in many resorts we chose this hotel due to its close proximity to the airport(15 mins) and by prior recommendation from friends. whilst the hotel is not as ultra modern as some others are now being built/reburbished to, this retains a charm due to the design of the buildings and interior which reminds you where in the world you are staying, this we like, maintainence was excellent,no marks/chipped paint anywhere in hotel or pool areas and all spotlessly clean! service was excellent and the hotels spotlessly clean sandy beach was the nicest stretch along the strip(all neighbouring hotels have their own beach and floating jetty)snorkelling was excellent from the beach or the hotel jetty and the reef unspoilt with beautiful selection of fish visible.food was very good with a selection to feed all tastes except perhaps those who prefer an extremely spicy menu, needless to say this was the first time on our travels that we never suffered any form of upset stomach and in conclusion this is why i would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to any of our friends especially with toddlers/small children and it is somewhere we will definately return to in the future for a winter holiday in february.

Excellent for chilled, relaxed holiday with fantastic service
We enjoyed 2 weeks at Baron Palms. The staff were friendly and service was second to none, however it was very quiet even though it was August and towar the end of the holiday the service became bait oppressive due to lack of guests ( we do not blame staff for this as we know they had a job to do )
The pool was wonderful as was the beach, however we were asked to move when we accidentally sat on the Baron Resorts section of the beach even though there was no one waiting to sit there. Food was very good but would have liked a bigger selection for a 5 star hotel. Entertainment team were international and also very friendly and evening entertainment was quite good and varied
Mini bar was not included in holiday and we thought this should have been on an all-inclusive holiday

Great relaxing holiday
As this is our 5th visit to the same hotel, actions speak better than words. This year was no exception to the previous years. From the moment you enter the hotel you are taken care of. Pool area and beach are immaculate. Food (main restaurant) is a buffet style, but varied each evening with numerous choices. The staff in the bars are very helpful although there were some new staff in the restaurant still being trained so not quite as good as previous years. Room are a good size and thoroughly cleaned every day. The booking process on line was very easy and now you print your tickets things are really easy. Good outbound flight although transfer was slightly held up. On the return flight we had a long delay due to adverse weather in UK. The hotel accommodated us well even though we had booked out although Thomas Cook communication regarding the delay was not what I would have expected. Although we had a 5.5 hour delay the return flight was good. Overall a very relaxing holiday and a location that I would recommend

wonderful relaxing time
Got to say I think we both picked the best weekend in December to go, the sun was hot, blue sky's all week, very quite regarding not a lot of children, don't get me wrong i love children , but when I just wanted to get away and chill, got to say we did... The hotel was so clean, not a dirty mark any where, The men were out late till 7pm cleaning the pool, the walk ways, windows, very hard working men, very polite, quick with service, I recommend any one to go and have a great time here.
The only thing I found was the lighting was very dark at nite , but I think that might be due to it getting dark early in the winter.

We stayed at the Baron Palms in September for 2 weeks.This was our first time in Egypt and had a great time.The hotel was great very clean and staff could not do enough for you. The food was very good something for everyone. Cant understand the bad comments. We have travelled to a lot of different places too so know what bad food can be like. We were told by rep if you want something that is not there just ask the chef what you would like and he would get it for you.We never had to do that. The desserts were fab.
The staff were great nothing was too much bother. Many thanks to Mahmoud in the Buffet restaurant who made mint tea for my husband when he had an upset stomach. Also Mohammed in the Terrace Bar what a guy.
Some of the entertainment shows were good but some quite disappointing.
Beach staff were great especially Ahmed with the cold spray really needed that !
We would like to go back to Baron Palms as its in a really nice location. Soho Square is much nicer than Naama Bay (very busy). Glad we picked Baron Palms and Sharks Bay area.
