Returned to Ocean CLub this November for my 10th time (4th for my friend) We were last here in March 2008 with two other friends and counldn't wait to get back..
Booked direct with Explorers and flew from Bristol
We had a great holiday, with great weather, good swimming and sunbathing and superb snorkelling
OCEAN CLUB WAS REALLY SPECIAL - AS USUAL
Being non-divers the pools are usually deserted during the day so no problems with swimming and sunbeds etc.
The rooms and service were as good as ever. We stayed for 2 weeks and the standards were good for the whole period. GREAT art work with the towel oregami!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FOOD GREAT - AS EVER
ENTERTAINMENT GOOD in and out of the Hotel and,as usual, we didn't get to do all we wanted in our 14 day holiday
SPECIAL THANKS TO:
AKMED - Reception
EBRAHIM (EBS) - Bars & Restaurant
MOHAMMED + MOHAMMED - Bars
MOHAMMED, MAMUAD, EBRAHIM, MAMHED + HAMAUD - Housekeeping
VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO OMAR - The EXCEPTIONAL Taxi Driver (See Akmed, Reception, for contact details) - Cheaper, more personal and better than many of the 'Organised' tours
We had a great time, we went to: EL FANAR (my favourite beach, with exceptional snorkelling), SHARKS BAY, DAHAB, RAS MOHAMMED AND AQUA PARK - all with OMAR!
TRY: Dolphinarai (first time for me + Excellent), The New Church and new Mosque (near Delta Sharm), Old Sharm (GREAT) and The beach at Sharm el Maya
At El Fanar (Fanar Beach, not Ras Um Sid Beach - didn't try that, but usually very crowded!!!!!!!!!) the snorkelling is GREAT! & the facilitites, towels drinks etc. arte ALL very good. Be sure to visit the beautiful monument to the Air Crash Victims near El Fanar.
DON'T MISS: The Camel Bar, Monty's Bar, OONA'S Dive Bar, The Havana & Pirates Bars at The Hilton. The Pagoda (Sunset) Bar at Sofitel it is SUPERB for watching the sunset over Naama Bay, Sharm el Sheikh and the Sinai Mountains
Give the beach near Amphorus a miss (straight down the road opposite Ocean Club - Advertised at Reception), IT'S ALWAYS VERY PACKED AND IT IS OFTEN DIFFICULT TO GET A SUNBED AND/OR MATRESS
Be sure to visit T2 (at The Rock) & join in the weekly Music Quiz. BE SURE TO SWAT UP ON YOUR R. DEAN TAYLOR (GOTTA SEE JANE) to TRASH THE RESIDENT QUIZ WINNERS (I think thet're called BRIAN'S BABES)!!!!!!!!!
El Marcato is good for an evening walk as is Alf Wella La Wella and don't miss evnings and long nights at Naama Bay!!!!!!!!!
Still swimming in the Pool at 14:45, Taxi Transfer to the Airport picked us up at15:30 - COULDN'T BE BETTER!!!!
