“Scum around the hotel pool!”

Mr C witnessed a lot of problems within the restaurant at The Sharm Cliff Resort. Including cats roaming around the restaurant, dirty crockery and cutlery, bain-marie’s stained with pre-existing food. Hot food was allegedly left to go cold. Mr C noticed the staff often cross-contaminating the food whilst it was being served. This cross contamination of foods is what is believed to have caused Mr. Cs illness, his symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea lasted for a number of days.

The hotel swimming pool filters were reportedly broken with a thick layer of scum around the outside of the pool. The pool had dirty water with a bad smell.
Mr C wanted to complain to the hotel representative but was unable to as they were never available to speak with. It is believed that Mr. C contracted gastroenteritis as a result of poor food hygiene awareness from the hotel.





“Sexual harassment theft poisoning!!”

Review of the Sharm Cliff Resort

This hotel is awful. It is dirty and there are mosquitos everywhere as they do not spray insect repellent. The room service gave me severe food poisoning.

I am not the typical English person complaining. I’ve been to Egypt 5 times and have never had any complaints but this place is truly disgusting and I want you all to know. I do not understand the good reports on here. Either I have been very unlucky or other people have been very lucky.
