“The worst experience…”

Review of the Sierra Sharm El Sheikh Hotel

I spent a lot of this holiday either very sick or crying.

I got a terrible case of food poisoning which stayed with me for 10 days. The staff were so unhelpful and rude that it was hard to approach anybody. I felt on edge and nervous for the whole ten days. It’s filthy. It’s over crowded. It’s dated and dire.
