The setting is really beautiful with lots of interesting little paths and bridges, the garden and plants well maintained and manicured.
The food was excellent. At night you can sit outside along the edge of the pool and enjoy a candle light dinner.
Rooms are comfortable and clean, bed mattresses rather hard. NIce towels and a fresh fruit basket each morning.
The 'village' has two separate pools. The lower one is for the 'young' crowd with pop music being played and some form of entertainment being offered during the day. The upper one is less noisy and has a more relaxed and quiet feel to it.
The spa is ok, but rather expensive. I paid 60 Euros for an hour of Thai massage, 30 for a facial. The sun and sea water are for free, so do that instead.
If you just want to enjoy the weather and the beach and the food this is the perfect location. If you want to see a bit of 'real' Egypt, than get into a minibus..... it is fun, if you can make yourself understood. 3 egyptian pounds (Nov 2012) per person will get you to the 'Old Market' or to 'Naama Bay'. Just flag down the bus and say something like 'Id neen' (zweimal), have exact change handy and give it to driver on your way out. A taxi in comparison is about 30 to 35 pounds (Nov '12) but you have to bargain hard to get that.
We enjoyed our stay at the Nubian Village and heard from other guest that it is one of the best locations in the area of Sharm el Sheik!
