It was a terrible experience going to this hotel. It can't be more than 1 star hotel or maybe half star. Staff were very rude, air conditioning was not working. security people walk beside your balcony and try to see what you're doing in your room ( VERY RUDE ). Workers talk about you in front of you in Arabic language in a nasty way. I hope this hotel will close soon. Their beach is horrible, you will find people annoying you and disturbing you to sell their services ( massage ect....) On... (read more)

I was at this so called GRAND Sharm Resort in May with my wife and parents, if this was my first time in Egypt I would never set foot in the place again. The whole complex was FILTHY, run down and dangerous. The tiles around the pool area were cracked, broken or missing, the bridge across the pool was falling apart and the umbrellas around the pool were hanging in tatters. The food was just awful, novariation at all, you could not get ice on the complex for your drinks as all the machines... (read more)

The food at the Creative Grand Sharm Resort is at best average and repetitive, if they serve chicken and lunch, you can guarantee to see chicken on the menu on the evening. Breakfast is abysmal, limited choice which included selection of overcooked vegetables. If you want an alcoholic drink at lunch time, you have to go to the bar to collect it yourself. Apparently the waiters aren't allowed to bring the drinks over to you. The condition of the restaurant is below standard. Old... (read more)

With all inclusive you receive your drink served warm in a plastic picnic mug not a glass and with no ice and if there are two or more in your party all of you have to go to the bar to get your own drink. There is no afternoon tea, coffee or ice cream for the children as stated in the brochure. All inclusive means that you have to eat 3 disgusting meals a day in the hotel and the advertised poolside bar does not serve all inclusive snacks only those that are paid for. The bar closes at 11.00... (read more)

There was no entertainment for kids or adults, day or night at the Creative Grand Sharm Resort in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. There was no play area for kids. All inclusive was not all inclusive. The restaurant only open at set times, and there were no snacks available at all. The kids menu was terrible, and drinks were served in small plastic cups. Kids were only allowed one ice cream per day between 4pm - 5pm. It is not a 4 star resort. Maybe 2 star.

We arrived at 11pm, and we were told had to pay, as the all inclusive had stopped at 11pm. We were put in a self catering room, even though we were all inclusive, and the rooms furniture was falling apart. Our shower curtain was held up by three pegs (although we were told we had a bath), and the room was overall disgusting. We were moved to an all inclusive room the following day after complaining, and it was not too bad, but it definitely wasn't 5*.

I would say definitely visit Egypt and sharm el sheikh, just don't stay at this hotel if you can help it, and if you've already booked. Just be really careful of the pool.

The Creative Grand Sharm resort was classed as a 4* which it clearly was not. I would have classed it as a 2/3* at best.
We trusted the tour operators judgement and therefore proceeded with the holiday and we were greatly disappointed.
We were totally disappointed with the food, as there was no variety and the quality was certainly not 4* class. The buffet style food was out at room temperature for 2 hours or more, thus resulting in incorrect temperature controls. Most of the dishes... (read more)

I'm sorry if you have recently booked to stay at the Creative Grand Sharm Resort in Sharm el Sheikh, but I feel it is my duty to give an honest review. I suppose your opinion of this resort really depends on what you are used to. However, for me, this hotel didn't really offer the sort of holiday that I consider to be a stress free relaxing holiday.

Creative Grand Sharm in Egypt is a nice place. You can walk to the private beach at the rear of the hotel. You have to walk through the hotel grounds, but they are OK, and it only takes about 10 minutes.
The pool was fine, but be aware that the Germans and British are up early to get sunbeds (9am is OK). I would not advise all inclusive here as the food at the poolside bar is cheap and very god, and this is part of the all inclusive deal.
