Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
Sharm caters mostly to European tourists who visit all year round to enjoy incredible weather and world-class diving and snorkeling. The entire coastline of the Red Sea in this area is peppered with resorts. We chose to stay at one of the older and smaller resorts originally started and run by Bedouins: Shark's Bay Umbi Diving Village. We stayed in a white villa overlooking the Red Sea and enjoyed 4 days of sun and incredible marine life with lots of fresh fish for dinner. There is a ...
Sharm el Sheikh is the travel destination for the international set. It is what Bali is to Australians. No Aussies but lots of Russians, Germans, English and every other nationality within a 5 hour flight radius.
We spent the day before battling Cairo traffic to the airport and then flying here. (1 hour flight). Shorter than the ride to the airport in Cairo.
Sharm el-Sheikh is situated on the ...
... along the Nile on the way home. This was going to add at least an hour to our drive, making us arrive back at the ship long after it was supposed to have sailed. The drivers were quite upset about that, guns were brandished, and soon the drivers' licenses were confiscated, a police escort joined us, and we set off up the Nile. It was actually very interesting because we travelled through towns and cities all along it, seeing the real people walking around, living their normal ...
... should swim to the coral blocks that were on our right hand side, we started to follow up to the "top" which ended on 12 meters. I had to signal to myself that I had to breathe all the time and relax. When we got up to 12 meters I started to feel calmer and my heart began to slow down. The time from 26 meters to 12 felted like an eternity. I signaled ok to Jeff and we went on and finished the dive as an ordinary dive. Although I was in ...
... anyway? Ah well, we’re too excited to dive to care.
The bus eventually left at 4am and made the two hour drive to Sharm El Sheikh. There, we boarded a boat that began the 3 hour ride out to the dive site. The sunrise was beautiful over the Red Sea, surrounded by the Sinai Mountains. It was gorgeous. We tried to catch a few extra Zzz’s before our full day of diving began. At 8am, we finally reached ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Amar Sina Hotel Sharm El-Sheikh
my fiance and i have recently returned from a fabulous holiday, in sharm el sheikh. what a place!!
Just returned from the Amar Sina (22/09/05-06/10/05).This hotel is surley different it is not your usual high rise building where every floor looks the same but quit the opposite it is based on a small Egyptian village with a very rustic look (not new by far) but the staff were regularly cleaning everywhere the pool area is quit small so get there early (Damn Germans).The food is repetetive and is deguised cleverly to look different but the quality is good (DONT TOUCH THE UNCHILLED MEAT).The big downer is entertainment almost none at all and what there was was dancing,no pool games or any other games for that matter.The staff where great,i have to mention Ala (not alah)who worked behind the bar this guy is wasted there forever helpful and smiling even after 15hours work.The zoo is a sorry sight best give it a wide berth.The big dissapointment was Sharm itself it is one big building site.For any divers or snorklers this place is unbeatable i am a diver myself and the marine life is awsome and on the last day i was privelidged to see a dolphin.would i go back no i wouldnt only because the place still needs to be fully built.
Loved the amar sina
The Amar Sina is a lovely place to have a nice relaxing holiday.Its definately not 4 or5 standard American style but the staff are so friendly its unreal.They dont speak much English so you have to be patient and explain yourself.The food is good although it is a bit repetitive but you have to remember you are in Egypt not Blackpool.They run a free bus to the beach and to Naama Bay so make full use of it.The hotel is very quaint but dont go looking for luxury after all you only get what you pay for.Hope you enjoy is as much as me.Say hi to Bilal at the pool and Issat who is a fantastic waiter
Me and my partner stayed at the Amar Sina for 14 days (8/9/-22-9/05 We have to admit we did really enjoy it, yes the food was basically the same every night and the entertainment never really changed but we used to hop in a taxi to Namma Bay as it was busier. The hotel was nice like a little Egyptian village, rooms were rather basic but comfy and they did smart little designs with your towels every day! You don't really go on holiday to stay in your room anyway so as long as it was clean we were happy. The staff were nice but the receptionist was rather arrogant as we had requested a wake up call at 4 am to go to Luxor and it never happened obviously at 4 am tempers are a bit flared but we got it sorted out and things were fine. But i'd take an alarm clock next time! I wish when you were lying at the pool they didn't come bothering you for a massage or henna tatoo but they did day in day out. If you can learn to ignore this and keep saying no its fine. The only part of the hotel I wasn't mad keen on was the zoo apart from the smell the animals didn't have alot of room which was pretty sad. The Sphinx and Obelixes in the gardens were well cool wishing I'd took a photo!!! We booked with Odyssey and to be honest our rep David was crap not helpful at all but the manager of reception was great a big shout out to Mohammed! Taxis are readily available but remember always negotiate a price b4 you set off or they will try rip you off! And if you can haggle its a big big bonus. Defo would reccommend this hotel and me and my boyfriend are pretty certain we'll go back next year. A big hello to Donna,Adam,Eileen,Leanne,Pauline & Kev
Dont expect 3 or 4 star at this hotel, its not . It does offer a charm that most other hotels lack, its unusual and thats a good point . The food was ok , but avoid anything thats not chilled which should be , you will also get used to the service ( if all inclusive ) everthing by the glass and logged by the book keeper . The staff in the main are friendly , and helpful ,but remember many work upto 15 hours a day 7 days a week . So if they seem slightly off you will know why ? . The rooms are simple and fairly basic , and in dire need of a little updating , the beds are huge the bath was small. Dont use the hotel beach, but walk to the public beach at the top of the road,(get a taxi back , its so exhausting sitting doing nothing all day ) plus the snorkling is great , buy your snorkle stuff out there its cheap. The zoo? should be closed down, its disgusting and cruel to the animals. Use the few local shops , some good bargains to be had, silver / gold etc, t shirts and your ( made in china ) toy camels . If you have booked this hotel or are looking for something little different dont worry , youve found it . If you want 4 or 5 star luxury, then look else where.
Have just arrived home from a two week stay at Amar Sina Egyptian Village and i do not have any complaints at all, we absolutley loved the place, i cannot for the life of me understand why there has been bad reviews, whilst i was there i did not hear a bad word from anyone staying within the accomodation, it is a lovely little place but would not suit all as it is not like your stadard holiday hotel or apartments as it is an Egyptian Village Theme which had myself and my partner totally captivated it is one of the most beutiful places i have ever stayed it has a small farm yard area up at the back with a camel which you can ride and monkeys etc. We enjoyed the food and had no problems with anything, whilst we were there new sun loungers arrived and the pool was cleaned out daily as well as there being a pool guy who maintained the pool throughout the day, did not see anyone cut themselves on anything nor did i see anything which could have caused anything like that.
Spent last 2 weeks of August here, weather was very hot in the 50's.
Stayed for one week,all inclusive. Food got a bit boring after a few days,rice,chicken etc.Dont touch the cold meats,in the evening the food is set out at the side of the pool,up to one and a half hours before,no refrigiration,temperature never falls below 36 degrees,so you can guess what I mean.
The 1st day we had arrived we were told that the had to keep hold of our passports without any explanation and anything translated into english for us to understand what was happening so that was slightly confusing.
Stayed here one week recently.The hotel itself was olde-worlde which we liked very much. Staff were very nice and very helpful. Rooms were a bit basic, but the domed ceilings and decor were very nice. The mini-bar was full on arrival,and room service (pizza) was speedy. The only complaint we have is that in the evening, when we sat round the pool for dinner, the "cold" meats, which were not refrigerated, were warm!!! This caused us both to have upset stomachs. So, advice is Don't eat the meats unless they are hot in containers. Overall, we enjoyed our stay there, and are going back in November, when it's not as hot.
