As always greeted by friendly staff. Room was as requested in advance. Pool, bar and restaurant staff couldn't be more helpful. Another great holiday at this hotel. Will be even better when all rooms have received the upgrade.

Had a great holiday at a lovely hotel but not 5 star. Sunbeds and parasols need updating as old, some broken and parasols mostly broken or dirty. On day 2 someone stole our 2 towels from the sunbeds whilst we were away having a drink. Staff tried to make us pay for losing 2 towels instead of apologising for the inconvenience caused by one of their guests stealing our towels. Staff in general very helpful, but not very smart and could do with new uniforms and shoes. Great setting next to Soho Square and nice beach setting. Food very nice. Room very large but again could do with updating. Did enjoy the holiday though and would stay again at this hotel.

We have been coming here for 10 years because of the great location, being close to the airport so no need for a transfer. But we fell in love with the resort anyway as it is very pretty, set out well and cared for. The hotel is in the middle of renovation with half of it closed at the moment as the rooms have always been same so looking tired but very clean with safe, fridge, bottled water every day. The room attendant went out of his way to put a smile on our faces each day. One pool closed due to renovation but the other 3 are great. The new beach pool is fantastic, with bar area. Toilets and showers very modern and clean. Clean beach towels placed on your sunbed by lifeguard every day.

Was a nice enough place. Yes it is run down but this is something you need to accept as you are getting a bargain. If you know Sharm you will know the importance of the hotels location. It is the only place you will not get hassled when stepping out the hotel doors.

Just returned from our 8th stay at Island View Resort. The staff here are fantastic and cannot do enough for you, which is why we keep coming back year after year. Since a change in ownership a few years ago, unfortunately some services have suffered - food is not as good, rooms still need to be updated but how much time do you spend in the room? As long as its clean and you have somewhere to sleep and shower, then for what you pay, you don't expect high end luxury. But all you have to do is ask/speak to the staff if you are not happy and they will cater to your needs no questions asked. I would say the hotel is a good 3* but the staff deliver a 5* service. Nothing is too much. Very very happy staying here.

Rooms need updating but in process of doing this. Most staff very friendly and helpful. Food good, nice selection. Hotel very clean. Animation team very friendly especially Vicky. 5 - 10 minutes from airport. Soho Square right outside of hotel. Overall very good holiday, have stayed before and would definitely stay again.

Rooms are in need of updating, but bathrooms all need a complete refit, very dirty and not good. Cleaners have tried to get bathrooms and rooms clean but they are just too old and nasty.

Pools and hotel grounds are good, not 5* now, but good. Hotel is mainly used by Russians (when we were there 700 guests and only 60 were British) so food is for the Russian taste. Most of the staff are lovely and love us British and like a tip.

The small shops and staff within the hotel are outstanding, very trustworthy and fun to talk to. However, the senior staff all need to have a training course in how to look after your guests. Very poor.

Location is fabulous, close to airport and on Soho Square door step, which is great shopping, safe, lots going on with no hassle from the shop keepers. Also the beach has great reef, down side is that so many Russians are there and they are very very rude.

Great staff that are trying really hard but hotel reminiscent of early 80s Spain. Rooms are run down. Food okay. Location good. Drinks and snacks very poor. Still practicing the art of topping up spirits with whatever's left at the end if the night so you get tequila tasting brandy. Hotel needs investment but renovations have halted completely.

This was our sixth time at this hotel. The staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble for them and can't do enough for you. The hotel is kept spotless, the rooms are a little dated but there is work being done on rooms at pool 4. We will be returning, it's like home from home. The food is very good and there is plenty of variety.

The staff make this hotel what it is. Regarding the refurbishment taking place, the progress is currently at a stand still. It have seen very little change during my 3 stays in the last 12 months.

Great service at the hotel yet again, setting great, good for the sea. Site and gardens very well maintained. Some of the rooms now looking a bit tired. Large Russian presence but not a problem.

This was a great location, just outside Soho Square, with its own private beach. The hotel was spotless and staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a bit tired, but everything was there: fridge, hairdryer, safe. The food was reasonable and, although it catered to mainly Russian tastes, there was always something to eat.

Fantastic staff always willing to help, great food all day long, bar service excellent, all round brill resort. Now just want to book again, if price was right. Rooms very clean although only concern was the bathroom was outdated but hopefully once the current refurb has finished then they will move out to the middle blocks.

Location brill couldn't have been better, by the beach and great swimming areas with wonderful views of the fish and the safety of lifeguards all day long. Plenty of sun loungers and fresh towels each day.

Great service, great staff, awesome location. Some rooms a bit tired, but they are currently renovating the hotel rooms and pools, but there will always be 3 pools open, the work doesn't affect the holiday one little bit, you barely hear anything. I would recommend this hotel always.

My husband and I stayed at Island View Resort for a week in November and it was absolutely brilliant. We have stayed there several times before and will definitely be going back. My only criticism was they always had wine on the all inclusive and this time they changed it where you could only have wine with lunch and dinner which really put me out as I only drink wine so it put a bit of a downer on the holiday.

Lovely hotel in an ideal position, close to Soho Square. Nice rooms, spotlessly clean, with wonderful friendly and helpful staff. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the evening meals in the main restaurant could be improved. But they are aware of this and are working to make it better.
