"Everywhere was kept clean,rooms restaurant,grounds and the pool Most of the staff were helpfull we stayed mostly on site.Around the pool bar we were looked after by NESSIM he was very helpfull.It was a shame we had to move out of our room for the last few days they did give us a nice room.They had a lot of maintenance work on site it was very unsettling with all the drilling,reparing the foor around the pool area.Overall a most enjoyable hoilday.For myself I found the food not suitable due to a stomach disorder because most of the food has spice's and herbs."

If your looking for relaxation then this is the place to be
"This was the first time we had been away in January and were a little worried about the weather.. No worries.. It was in the high 70's for the whole 7 days.. The wind did blow for a couple of them which made it feel slightly chilly. One tip - take plenty to keep you warm at night as the temperature drops considerably.
Both the room and service were fantastic, all though we could have done with a better view from our room. We looked straight out onto a high hedge which meant that we didn't really want to sit out on the balcony which was a shame.
Let me just say though that a lot of the rooms had lovely views and we have taken note of these room numbers for next year. Yes we will be coming back!
There is not to much to do at night apart from sit either at the poolside bar, (bit chilly for us, there are patio heaters but there must have been a shortage of gas as they kept running out) or relax in the lounge/ bar.. They did produce a couple of quizzes during the week which where fun, apart from the cheats that kept looking at there phones for the answers, these were very enjoyable.
The food is again very good, with a wide menu choice, be prepared to put on weight as the cakes are tasty and will have you going back for another one or two.
If we had one slight reservation then it would be the actions of some of the other guests and there manners, but we believe that these were being monitored by the staff because it seemed that the family's that were being out of order one night were very subdued the next.
To conclude: A very nice hotel, with both brilliant staff and service and would recommend to any one.

Not a four star hotel
"This was our 6th stay at St George missed last year but found hotel had deteriorated since last visit do not know if this was due to new ownership. Staff excellent as usual but thin on the ground in certain bars,ran out of certain drinks and glasses through out stay.Major problems with mosquitoes and cockroaches. Hotel tried to solve problem but kept appearing during 2 week stay.Food well prepared and well presented limit choice but always something available.Rooms around family pool noisy as animation night time activities in this area 11.00pm finish so if you retire early forget about it.Pool areas excellent quiet pool as stated staff diligent any noisy residents asked politely to use other pool.All round value for money but in my opinion not 4 Star "

Prices can be deceiving!!!
"My girlfriend and I stayed here at the end of June, begining of July. We took a chance on this hotel as the price seemed very cheap compared to others in the same area, and we went with an open mind about what to expect.
We should have had no fears however, the whole package was what you would expect from a hotel far more expensive than this one. The room was clean cool and well fitted out, with all the usual accessories. The pool area was clean and well maintained, with attentive friendly staff, and plenty of sunbeds. Our room was beside the quiet pool, which was peacefull happy, with any nosy residents asked politely to quiten down or move to the louder family pool area.
The bars were well stocked and there was always plenty to drink with some of the local all inclusive drinks being very palatable. One tip however would be to bring a couple of thermo mugs with you as the glases that use for round the pool are rather small and especially at this time of year the ice melts in seconds in the 50 degree + temperatures.
The hotel offer numerous excellent services, including free bus trips into town during the day and the evening, and a shuttle bus to their private beach with has all the facilities of the main hotel including food.
All in all and excellent package. Do not be deceived by the price, you get a full and excellent service.
If i was to put a negative on the place it would have to be that this time of year it is tooooo hot, 55 degrees in the shade but thats why you go on holiday isnt it??
We have been to Egypt regularly over the past years and this is the best experience we have had so far.
100% satisfied and will be back there in November i think"

love this hotel
"sorry to say we missed our visit to the St George in November last year due to a family berevement. but will be visiting this year again in October. Our family and extended family all love this hotel for its family atmosphere, good food and extreme cleanliness. I was sorry to hear of the family who had "food Poisoning" in April when they last visited but I have to say, We have visited this hotel for 5 years now and never had any experience of this kind of thing. the food is always well cooked and warm.
Look forward to our visit in October. regards to all.xxx

bad experince at this hotel
"Went to St George Hotel for the first time in May this year,Hotel some distance from the beach which did NOT upset me or bother me because i wanted a quite relaxing holiday, But it turned into the most horrific experience of my life, the food was upsetting bad the same food every day lunch and dinner which was over salted (big time), the drinks were warm no ice unless you asked for it then they would give you 2 peices in a plasic cup.Mosquito`s were everywhere the hotel was fumegated every other day to try to get rid of this problem, Apart from this the hotel was clean and basic needed money spending on rooms/reception/lounge/bar area.
WILL NOT BE RETURNING UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES..........."

"This was mine and my husbands first time in here and we really enjoyed it. I read some of the reviews before going so we went with an open mind. The hotel is very clean, rooms very large and cleaned every day if you wanted them too. our cleaner Sam was fab. We stayed at the quiet pool and loved every minute of it, never had any problems with getting a sun bed even when we went down at 10.30am. Staff there are brilliant to especially to talk to is Ahmed who arranges the Sun Set Cruise (This is a must do, seen lots of Dolphines, really beautiful) and in the resturant Ibraham (you'll never go short of a drink with him around. He work on the left handside tables). We did get the poorley tummies for 2 days but did expect it as a lot of people that go to Egypt say this. (so it's not just this hotel like some people have stated). Went into Namma Bay as the hotel puts a bus on, got there for 8.15pm was ready to come home by 8.45pm. You never get left alone to have a look around, they pounce on you from the minute you step of the bus until you step back on the bus. For us that was the only downside to Egypt. Will be going back next year. "

"Just got back from a week in this hotel,there were 18 of us and was reccomended by a couple who travelled with us and we werent dissapointed.The food was basic but something for everyone and what i had was very nice.The rooms were very spacious and clean with the maids coming every day and making patterns out of towels on your bed.
The staff round the quiet pool were very friendly especially Mina who was good fun and spoke really good English,the other staff were great too playing table tennis with my son and the others who were with us.The hotel put a free shuttle bus on to and from the beach which was also All inclusive.
Would definately return to this hotel and reccomend it to anyone...."
