... from the UK. When we returned to the "public" beach we found that it cost $2 Euro each to use the 30 foot wide access to the beach....with only about that much space at the beach front. Other beachs cost closer to $12 Euro each...so we did like our find.
There were two little Egyptian boys playing and we got a kick out of them and their families.
... travelers and enjoy getting to know them better. We are travelling with some amazing people, and I will always be grateful for the blessing of meeting these new friends.
We get cleaned up and head to dinner (which includes the yummiest hand-made pita/tortilla things), and then hit the shops next to our hotel. One shopkeeper offers a free cup of hibiscus tea (an Egyptian specialty). My friend Carrie had already tried it and hadn't died, so I figure it's safe. ...
Originally I was supposed to leave for Aqaba in Jordan the next morning. But after having such a nice massage by Ahmed "the Shark"? The relaxing evening by the beach and the spectacular diving, leaving did not seem like the obvious choice. The holiday feeling had only just kicked in. So I stayed. As it turns out, I stayed for two more days. I had a wonderfully lazy day at the beach, snorkelling, swimming and reading. I even joined a yoga class in the morning. At ...
... got ready for our second dive. This time we got treated to a sea turtle! We also saw baby baracudas and groups of other baby fish, two scorpion fishes and at the very end we stuck our heads in a cave one by one to see the sunlight shine on a huge group of little golden fish, which was absolutely magical! After the dives I treated myself to a massage by Ahmed "the Shark". His nickname stems from the time he was working as ...
... You all shall see it when I return. It was so expensive though! Even in western terms it was a rip off. I spent quite a lot of money, but I'm comforted by the thought that it was worth it, I won't be doing it again probably ever, and that I'm going back to dahab soon which is very cheap compared to here. Been a relaxing day today, apart from the parasailing which was a bit of an adrenaline rush at first and then was really calm. Sam took up a disposable camera so hopefully ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cleopatra Tsokkos Hotel Sharm El-Sheikh
Visited over New Year with my wife and 4 children. I cannot say how bad this hotel was from the moment we tried to check in, wrong rooms, not enough beds, to the moment we left. The rooms were not sorted until the next day and then we ended up with 2 small rooms with 3 beds crammed in each despite paying for 4 full adult price and 2 child prices, only 20% disc.
What can i say.... My husband booked the cleopatra as a surprise honeymoon for us, as I had always wanted to visit Egypt since being a child.The morning of our wedding day i awoke pretty early to find that sadly sharm el Sheikh had been bombed by terrorists. As you can well imagine this rather upset and devastated me on what was supposed to be the best day of my life. after trying to cancel or rearrange with no success, we gave up and went anyway...my husband being more willing than me.
We were slightly concerned after reading some of the reviews about the Cleopatra and then the bombing in Sharm happened the day before we were due to travel! We decided to go ahead with our holiday as we had only booked one week in the SUN, and thats what we got.
We holidayed in this hotel from the 18th July 2005 until 1st August 2005. There were 3 of us in the party, myself 53, my wife 42 and our son 10.
The rooms were cleaned daily and perfectly adequate. There is some building work going on behind the hotel but then again, the extent of development in the area is such that there aren't many places in Sharm that aren't next to a building site.
We arrived in Egypt on the 26th June for a fortnight B&B. We had a fantastic holiday and have so say one of our best yet. I agree that the holiday was cheap and we didn't expect anything great but the hotel was fine. We thought that the bedrooms were really clean, with maids coming in every day to change beds and to give you fresh towels etc. The staff were all very friendly and always willing to help out.
We have just returned from a week at the cleopatra hotel in sharm el sheikh. we found the staff very helpfuland always happy to help.They all seem to work v long hours i.e 9am till midnight for v low pay and they helped to make my holiday enjoyable.on the minus side there are a few gripes i have that the bar always seemed to be running out of stock on a few items in the early evening and the fridge behind the bar seemed to be broken for the week that we stayed hence i dislike warm beer in 40 degree heat.
Worst holiday ever !
In January 2005, we booked a two week holiday to this hotel, as this holilday was quite cheap we were not expecting the Ritz! which was just as well. In the room we had problems with back-flow from the toilet three times, the sheets had holes in them!
The food was well presented and the staff friendly, but was never covered and the files had been crawling all over it before we arrived.
Most of the guests in this Hotel were there on an all inclusive basis and the noise from the bar could be heard well into the early hours of the moring.
It is only our opinion, but this is the worst holiday that I have ever had.
Unless the Management make changes I would advise against going there.
