GREAT RELAXING HOLIDAY
THE HOTEL & SETTING WAS PERFECT, WE HAD A FANTASTIC SEA
VIEW, YES WE PAID THE UPGRADE AND WERN'T DISAPPOINTED. THE
HOTEL WAS EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN & THE STAFF A CREDIT TO THE
HOTEL. ALL THE TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS WENT ACCORDING TO PLAN
ALBEIT, WE MANAGED TO SQUEEZE OUR LEGS INTO THE SEATS ON THE
PLANE. (BOTH MYSELF & MY HUSBAND BEING 5' 8") THE WEATHER WAS
RED HOT IN THE REGION OF 38 deg - 40degs LOVELY
YES I WOULD GO BACK AGAIN, & TAKE THE BAD COMMENTS ON TRIP
ADVISOR LIGHTLEY, SOMETIMES YOU CARN'NT PLEASE ALL THE
PEOPLE ALL THE TIME!

The hotel staff made this holiday - food could be better.
A lovely feel to this hotel. The staff went out of their way to be nice and helpful. The main criticism is the food. The desserts were repetitive and mainly cake-based and a lack of fresh fruits for breakfast/desserts.
Unfortunately the swimming pool was just too cold for me to get in at all.
However, I woudl recommend this hotel mainly because of the attitude of the staff.

this is not a 4* hotel
It was actually a couple of years ago that I was unlucky enough to stay in this hotel but never got round to writing a review. I cannot believe this hotel is still being advertised as a 4 star hotel.
From arriving we were disappointed. I would say the main selling point of the hotel is the infinity pool which is nice but with having a swim up bar people just throw their used cups in the pool which is a bit gross!
This hotel should be advertised at the most as a 3 star hotel, the rooms are not that great, the bathrooms need work. the bedrooms have interconnecting doors which they put mattresses with black binliners inbetween?? random!
we even had a cockroach in ours - nice!
My partner and I work really hard and we just wanted to chill out on this holiday but you are constantly hounded by the spa manager trying to get you to have treatments and people trying to get you to go on a boat.. i dont need to be asked 10 times a day!! we even commented about this to reception and nobody bothered us for a day but then the next day it was business as usual. the food is rubbish, i didnt bother with breakfast after the 1st day, i would get a burger or hot dog round the pool around midday instead - it was better than the breakfast they serve. we stayed for a week and as this was all inclusive, i would feel sorry for anyone staying here longer having to eat the food.
The only thing that made this holiday better was one of the waiters Mohammed - he is a star and an asset to the hotel, I am not sure if he is still there but he really looked after us in the restaurant.
I had never stayed in Egypt before and this holiday would actually put me off going again.
If you want a 4* star holiday do not book this hotel!

quick trip with a chick
book last min, a day before we set off, be aware that pictures on web are off both the concorde sport and concorde front, so the lovely pool ya think ya getting might be a ten min walk, its a nice walk thou
we stayed at the sport, it was really nice, food was faultless, staff were very helpfull, we got charged to have a kettle in our room which i thought was a bit petty otherwise it was spot on.
web claims a couple of pools are heated in the winter, think they are heated via candle as they were too cold to go in, shame because they were nice and slides looked fun.
i would and am looking to go back soon with my two teenage kids so i must think its nice, only bad points were entertainment was pants, never even saw a rep, pool freezing, half an hour journey from airport when ya only across the road (get ya own taxi and dont pay no more than £5) and maybe rooms dated but clean and big. also full of rude russians.
good points were, clean towels everyday for shower and beach, excellent food, spacious rooms, free safe in room, free tv channels, nice private beach at the concorde front, plenty of sports at the concorde sport, even had squash courts, nice staff, drinks were ok, nightclub but ya had to pay for drinks, nice pools, nice grounds excellent weather.

Great Holiday shame about the flights
Got off to a dodgy start 14th nov at east midlands ,informed flight ready for boarding at a gate away from main departure lounge then left standing in what could only be described as a large freezer for half an hour.
On boarding (thomas cook A321) found seat room very uncomfortable (i'm 5'10 12 st ) and also informed of no inflight entertainment (not made obvious when booking online) the excuse was, a survey said passengers would rather use personal sets which you could hire for £ 7.50 ( i'll leave it at that)
OK now for the cheerful bit the concorde sport , i could not fault the place in great condition ,confortable large ,well appointed rooms ,spotlessly clean the staff could not do enogh to help you whether at reception restaurant or pool (service much better than the beachside concorde)
The food was of a good quality and decent variety at restaurants and poolside
The location is also good only ashort walk (or wait for courtesy bus ) to beach. The beach area has lots of beds and shade and its own section of reef ror snorkelling (watch the sharks).Soho Square bars restaurantes and shops only 300 mtrs fom hotel

We have just returned from a fabulous week at the Concorde El Salam Beach Hotel. The hotel was lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful (having two teenage daughters helped with this!!). The infinity pool and swim up bar were fab and many a drink was enjoyed here. The terrace where we sunbathed had amazing views across the Red Sea. Snorkelling was amazing and our daughters had a scuba experience which they loved.
We have already recommended this hotel to friends and family, and hope to return again.

second time this year at concorde el salam
This was our second time this year at concorde el salem , the first time being in feb .This is the only hotel we have ever been back to twice and hopefully plan to go back every feb as our winter break.I think that explains for it self how brill we think it is. We upgraded this time to a sea view but on arrival was disapointed with the room given as it was not on the front so not a true sea view but a partial sea view set back about for blocks.This was not a problem at reception and changed our room straight away even though it was eleven at night. This time we didn't do any trips as we did in feb just totally chilled for eleven nights. Our favourite thing about this hotel is it has its own coral reef absolutly amazing, snorkelled twice a day every day . The food is really good with a fantastic choice entertainment ok.The waiter service you cant fault a little tipping goes along way.The young lad who did our room every day was great even decorated our room for my birthday. Oh and a bit to hot in oct for us the temp in feb was perfect .Nothing to much trouble at this hotel fab time.
