We have just returned from a holiday at the Iberotel Il Mercato booked through Blue Seas Holidays. We had been to Sharm El Sheikh before and had stayed at another hotel, therefore we had an idea of what it should be like. Initially when we arrived we were a little disappointed, but after a good nights sleep and on reflection, the room was spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate - unfortunately we could not enjoy a hot shower, the water was, at the most, lukewarm and sometimes cold but in a hot country like Egypt, to me, it is not a major issue - strangely though the water in the sink was very hot! There weren't as many amenities and nice touches as we had at the other hotel we stayed in and of course it is not by the sea, but in truth were were okay with staying by the pool and sunbathing all day long in temperatures reaching 33 degrees in April - pure bliss! The food was fine, again not always to our taste, but you can't please everyone all of the time. What makes this hotel stand out from the rest is the friendliness of the staff and the fact that they fall over backwards to make your stay an enjoyable one. We are not generally enamoured with the Animation teams at other hotels we have stayed in, but this group of girls and one young man were amazing - they were friendly, fun, had a smile for everyone and created a great atmosphere. Our experience this time just went to show that it is not over the top luxurious surroundings that make a holiday, it is the people, having said that there was nothing basic about this hotel it was lovely! Would we go back - most definitely - so thank you Blue Sea Holiday for sending us on one of the best holidays we have ever had!
