Great to hear that you also tried cocktails from our extensive drinks menu - as you mention, these are even better value during Happy Hour every weekday from 5-8pm.
We're really pleased that you enjoyed Camel Bar's atmosphere set by the candles and the music.
Thanks again for your recommendation, and we look forward to hosting you at Camel Bar on a future holiday to Sharm.

“Chilled, Relaxed and enjoyable”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

The Camel bar must be one of the most atmospheric places in Sharm and always busy. there are various seating areas making it seem bigger than it was. The fact that it is above street level was good too as my wife could people watch to her heart’s content down onto the street below. The staff are friendly and this is where we like to come after a good days diving.

Dear Anthony
Thank you so much for taking time to review the Camel Bar and share your feedback. We always like to hear from our guests and appreciate your effort.
We're really pleased that you enjoyed Camel Bar's atmosphere, which we like to think comes as much from our friendly staff, as from our lovely guests!
The choices offered by the Roof Bar, Terrace and main bar, for seating and people watching, hopefully mean your good lady wife will always have plenty to see.
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.

“When in Sharm, it's got to be The Camel Bar!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Do not settle for less or be ripped off elsewhere. Great value food and drink. Friendly staff. Fantastic views. Three bars to choose from. Roof top overlooking the strip and watch the world go by. The trendy wicker basket furniture cheap drink and two hour happy hour. Great Indian tandoori pizzas. Sports bar with loads of plazas and entertainment. We booked our diving here and what a fab experience. Ideally located for hotel bus runs back or shopping. Every person we've recommended to go here luvs it and a great place to hang out in a relaxed atmosphere with buddy's. The whole place is spotless, great cocktails at reasonable prices and state of the art/ trendy toilets which are regularly serviced. Trust GolfbloggerUk, this is the place to be in Sharm!

Dear Mathew and Gemma
Wow! What an amazing review! Many thanks for taking the time to post it and for recommending Camel Bar to other newlyweds!
We are ecstatic that you love Camel so much, the great food, the sports, the loos…you forgot to mention that we have a disabled loo too! As you mentioned, our Happy Hour 5pm-8pm Monday to Fridayis great value, plus we also have our ‘Sports Specials’ at the weekends til 9pm, with promotions on jugs of beer, cocktails etc.
You couldn't get more central than our location, so we're happy to hear that you managed to drop in for a drink in between shopping, diving, hotel transfers, etc!
Once more, thanks again from all the crew at Camel Bar and Roof for taking the time to write such a wonderful review and we hope to see you both again soon.

Dear Degsy
Thank you very much for posting about Camel Bar and Roof, we do love to hear your views.
The long (three hour) Happy Hour is probably our most popular promotion, for the great value and choice of drinks, and we are really glad you enjoyed it.
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!
From all the team at Camel Bar, we thank you again for taking the time to post and hope to see you when you next visit Sharm.

“Food was gorgeous :)”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

We went to the Camel Bar twice on our holiday and loved it both times. First just as a couple and only went for a few drinks but the food menu was good so decided to eat as well. Food was amazing, finally somewhere in Sharm which just uses chicken breast :) With both drinks and food each we only spent around £30 and we was there for a few hours. The second time we took friends that we had met in the hotel and they enjoyed it too. We tried some of the cocktails as it was happy hour and watched the sun go down. Again really good quality of food and reasonably priced. Would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be going again. :):):)
