“Empty???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

What a shame that the bar was almost empty on the night of our visit having remembered the length of the queues to get in when we were last in Sharm. However it was still a great place to have a drink and watch the world go by

Dear 1971DJ

We really appreciate you taking the time to post your review of Camel Bar, thank you.
as you know over the past 3 years Egypt tourisum has been affected by many different things but all is looking bright for the future so some night are busier then others.
The Roof is also extremely popular for it’s chilled out atmosphere and fabulous views over Naama Bay, the perfect end to a relaxing day on the beach or diving!
Once again, from all the team at Camel Bar and Roof, thanks for the great comments and we look forward to seeing you again on your next visit.

“Nice viewpoint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Sat on the roof, drinking a cocktail whilst watching the hustle and the bustle on the ground. Staff was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere laid back and relaxed. There was a dj spinning some really funky songs.

Dear Erika

We really appreciate you taking the time to post your review of Camel Bar, thank you.
We're truly delighted that you enjoyed your visit to the Roof, and that you consider our staff provided the right balance of friendliness and customer service. It's true that the view from our Roof Bar is hard to beat, and is even better enjoyed at sunset time with one of the cocktails included in our Happy Hour promotion! Our wide-ranging dinner and drinks menu does also contain a range of flavours of Egyptian water pipe, or shisha - there are plenty to choose from.
Once again, from all the team at Camel Bar and Roof, thanks for the great comments and we look forward to seeing you again on your next visit.

“Well, the Roof is still worth 5*”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Divers like me yearn for the Camel of days gone by, when the 'mid-level' bar was almost exclusively a divers' haunt. The renovation has transformed it into a trendy, chic and rather soulless place. Great for watching football (every UK game was televised) but it ain't Camel. I can understand why the management felt the need though. At the moment only around 15% of visitors to Sharm go diving so they've had to change their business model. Sadly, a diving institution has been destroyed in the process. However, the outside terrace is very well done and the Roof bar remains relatively untouched.

Great food & drink at reasonable prices with good service is still the order of the day and their piped music is still the coolest around. The funky female DJ who turns up occasionally is good too. All in all Camel have kept the Rooftop vibe which means we'll keep returning time and again. Mess with it and we may not. Still one of my favourite places to be anywhere in the world and therefore well worth the 5* rating.
