En Route to Suez

... and allowed to return to England. An agreement was reached that the young Iranian at the centre of the problem would not be treated. A similar episode was resolved in Colonel Ghadafi’s Libya when some hostages were taken there after the shooting of PC Yvonne Fletcher. The problem this time was that Libyans in the UK were being treated badly by the authorities following the shooting. A help line was set up in the UK so that Libyans could have their grievances ...

4th Trip, New Hotel

A travel blog entry by andyanneattwood

Only a 4 1/2 hour flight, arrive earlier than normal so a couple of hours sunlight left. Interesting journey via taxi to the hotel, which included having to get out of it as we got grounded on a sleeping policeman! Hotel is very spread out, nice gardens. First rooms not to good but the girls manage secure new ...

Hibiscus Tea on the Red Sea

A travel blog entry by abwoodmansee


... I would be more than happy to stay awhile. It's hard to believe that in 2004 a terrorist drove a truck into the lobby of this hotel and detonated a bomb, killing 34 and injuring hundreds. Not incidentally, we go through several layers of security to get into the hotel. But I doubt the place is much of a target now, seeing we're about the only guests here.

We have the afternoon free, so Bruce and I try relaxing on the beach for a bit. That's when we get hit ...

Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt

A travel blog entry by mcloughlin


... fame is (apparently) mangrove trees –although to get to them, we had to endure a bumpy 20 min drive on an unsealed road! It wasn’t really worth it! The coastline was pretty with very clear water and diverse marine life – so it’s popular with the snorkellers and ...

Shake Shake Shake, Sharm el Sheikh

A travel blog entry by ekimmike


... The block that had a Chili's, a Friday's, Pizza Hut, and KFC all in a row says it all. We could not imagine, for us, spending three or four days here. The one day that we spent was enough. At 4:00 AM we were up to catch our 6 AM flight to Cairo and then on to Frankfurt. I am feeling as close to 100% as I felt in over a week and I'm looking forward to comfortably eating out while in Germany. I may even go crazy and have a beer or two. It is Oktoberfest after ...

    Not the best!!!


    Just had a 2 week holiday at the Club fanara, the hotel it self was spotlessly clean, staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you.The only thing that lets this hotel down is the FOOD if you like a variety of food don't come here. The fizzy drinks were often flat, snack times was pizza and hotdogs everyday and the buffet was rubbish with only chips and pasta that you would recognise as alot of the food was egyptian.

    Not fantastic


    Just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel.

    Second Visit Better than the First!!!


    This is our second trip to this hotel. We first came here in Dec 2004. The sea was a too cold for us at that time, but the snorkelling was so good we had to come back for more & we were not disappointed.

    The hotel is very clean and the gardens are kept immaculate. The staff are very friendly and are always joking, even though they are very busy.

    There is plenty of choice for food, we never had a night where we could not find any food. Our two children had no problem.

    The pools are good & there are some games organised during the day.

    The snorkelling off the beach is wonderful, but you just have to watch out for the giant trigger fish whilst they are nesting.



    We stayed at the main Fanara Hotel., spotlessly cleans as were the residences., long walks between restaurants., breakfast best meal., most of the tourists complained about the quaity of the food., very poor and served in sauces, which were tepid to cold. Not much choice., meat(1), fish(1), Vegey(1), salad bars fair., not much imagination.,

    Clean bed linen and towels each day., Staff were fantastic., we were warned by our holiday rep, that apparently theere is a nasty little stomach bug in Sharm which affects most tourists for about 24/48 get pills from local pharmacy that usually settles things. Pool is wonderful as are the gardens, rooms spacious, air conditioned, fridge and safe supplied what a shame about the food though., wont be going to this hotel again I am afraid

    Egyptian Bliss


    Have just returned from IBEROTEL CLUB FANARA & RESIDENCE, stayed for one week on a all-inclusive board.

    Iberotel Club Fanara


    We have just returned from one week all-inclusive at the Iberotel Club Fanara and once inside the hotel had a superb time - excellent facilities, food choice and quality superb - breakfast, lunch and dinner (gents make sure you have long trousers for dinner or you won't be allowed in restaurant - even cropped trousers are banned as I found out!). The gazelle restaurant, also part of the hotel offers a total contrast to the main hotel - much quieter, outside eating etc. and same quality. The staff couldn't be more helpful. The kids club was great fun and though the official age +4yrs, our 2yr old had a great time joining in with the activities - the staff are happy for them to be there as long as you don't leave them. The evening kids dancing was a highlight for our daughter. The snorkelling from the hotel beach was incredible. We didn't leave the hotel for the week.

    Fab holiday


    returned 24/2 from sharm after visiting this hotel. what a fab holiday the whole family enjoyed it. hotel very clean and comfortable, service excellent, food excellent, cocktails strong!

    All inclusive was all inclusive my little boy was eating icecreams at midnight!

    Best part of hols was the snorkelling in the sea, the hotel beach is an excellent place to start, the fish are amazing like being in a fish tank.

    We had a great time and would return to the same place.

    ps. we did not buy a visa and had no problems.

    All round fantastic holiday


    Just spent 14 days at the Club Fanara from 20/1 - 3/2, and found the staff, accomodation, food and location excellent. The weather was in the upper 80's, and there was no sign of mosquitoes due to the fact that the outside greenery was sprayed daily at dawn and dusk.

    The rooms had air conditioning and heating, and were cleaned on a daily basis, with all bed linen and bath room towels changed.

    Ample pool and beach towels were also available free of charge.

    A very safe enviromment for families young and old.

    I will definitely be using this hotel again.

    Best ever holiday


    Just got back from Sharm this week, the hotel was excellent. It's surronding were great, the beach was lovely it's not soft sand, but very clean, no one bothers you there, the only person i saw was the hairdresser asking if you would like your hair done. If you are going for the night life go somewhere else, it's a daytime holiday, they did have so called entertainment on, but not as we noticed, it's the sort of place where you have your dinner then a few drinks and a walk to the shops or along the beach. The snorkeling is excellent, we went everyday. The whole holiday was the best one i have ever had. I would recommend the hotel to anybody, it's fit for the queen. I can't wait to go back.
