“Definitely not 5 star, but OK”
Reviewed April 3, 2006

Just returned from a weeks holiday. Weather mostly good, some cloud and windy at night, at times needed a jacket in the evening. HOtel clean, room OK, but not 5 star. Food good, always a good choice, waiters, pool staff, reception very good. Lebanese restuarant good. Local Alcoholic drinks terrible, vodka, gin and tonic tasted horrible. Had to resort to paying for vodka and getting tonic from supermarket. Very quiet at night, very little to do, entertainment amatuerish. Taxi drivers and people in Sharm El Sheik old town trying to rip you off, you have to be careful. One couple were asked to pay £8 for two beers, which they refused to do. We went to Sharm El Sheik 3 years ago and we found this time most people are out to get your money. Enjoyed the break but unlikely to go again.

Reviewed March 16, 2006

this was my first holiday abroad so didn't really know what to expect. Hotel was clean and staff were friendly.

Tried diving from the company on the beach i don't recommend this, through the lack of the staff i ended up with a burst ear drum, this ruined my holiday, best going with aqaurius diving club.

Some must would be swimming with dolphins and snorkelling. Book dolphins through the holiday rep.

went to narmba bay, best to go in eveing and definatly go to the heard rock cafe, food is good and very cheap. Best to book shuttle bus to narmba bay in advance, this way is cheaper than taxi's.

Rooms are ok, very comfortable and everything you would need.
Not much to do within the hotel or areas surrounding the hotel but the beach is nice.

Weather is great (come back with great sun tan).

I did enjoy the holiday but there is not a lot to do around the hotel and some of the excursions are a bit pricy.

Would come back again though
