Domina Hotel & Resort Harem
Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
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 ...
... 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.

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. ...
Today we decided to take the shuttle into town. Sharm is a very large resort area with a nice long walkway that goes by all the hotels, cafes, etc. There are named hotels here like the Marriott, Hilton. Although this is the Egyptian Easter week, there were no crowds on the beach or walkway. Again, very few people are coming to Egypt.
There are beautiful flowering trees and ...

When itīs spotting us, it turns around in two seconds and disappears into the blue deep water in front of our eyes. Me and Jeff are looking at each other with big eyes and laughs.
At this point im swimming between two coral blocks and comes ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Domina Hotel & Resort Harem Sharm El-Sheikh
We were at this Hotel 3rd to 10th June. Rooms are fantastic and we were lucky enough to get a pool and sea view. The room was exceptionally clean and spacious (on two floors) with 2 bathrooms!. We only ate at Spices restaurant because the food at each mealtime was excellent and suited our tastes (try out the Tai menus). Service was excellent from all the staff, and every one was very keen to smile and make sure we were happy. The beach is fab and the 2 sea swimming pools a great idea. It's only a few minutes walk along the beach to the bar (plastic cups! but what the heck it doesn't matter). Little taf tafs (buses) take you around the whole complex and are every 5 minutes, overall we had a fab time and would definately go back. It was quiet the whole of the week whilst we were there and I dare say it might be a bit crazy during peak times and school holidays. First class place and we don't understand what it is that people have to moan about really. Before we went on this holiday we were a bit concerned (with reading previous reviews). If you only eat macdonalds and don't like fresh fruit and veg then maybe it's not for you. We will definately go back though.
on reading reveiws that were already on here we were like every body else not quite sure what to expect but when we arrived we were greeted by frendly staff that bought us a cool towel to to wipe away the dust we arrived one hour later than expected so it was dark, just,we were told we had been up graded to their duplex suite which had a jucuzzi shower bath which was nice also a mezzanine floor upstairs with four poster bed , as other people had said the rooms we ok but on reflection were getting tired, but were cleaned by nice young men,the all inclusive package we found out has only been running for a year or so ,so we thought its best to give them time to sort it out .
When i first arrived there it was like a Haven, after the airport situation!! which i can tell you, i nearly lost the will to live because they are so unorganised.
We booked this holiday after reading the brochure description.From this we were expecting an Ultra All Inclusive holiday but were disppointed to find we were not really even all inclusive. Only 2 drinks per day from the beach bar after that you had to fill in forms as long as your arm in 40 degree heat,then get bus to another hotel and stand in a long queue to pay.On an evening their was no entertainment or bar to sit in in the harem so you would either have to sit in the lobby or get a bus to another hotel.The other hotels would only let you purchase non alcoholic drinks without a charge.Although hotel is beautiful i would never return and strongly advise you not to go either as it was not worth what they charge,dont let it put you off egypt though its fantastic and will retuurn but not to any of the coral bay hotels.
Firstly want to let you know about the cost of this hotel. My friend & I paid £480 per person for 10 days at the Harem hotel in the resort all inclusive (don't go unless you go all inclusive as it just is not worth it). For all those moaning about this hotel, please get a life! For £48 per night including flights, were you really expecting the Hilton!!!
Weave just returned from a week all inclusive at this resort. We d a few reviews on here that left us little unsure but we had a fantastic
We booked the Reef Oasis, but when we arrived at Sharm we were told the Reef was overboked and were sent to the Harem instead, as an "upgrade".
Myself and two other females stayed at this hotel for a week in March. After reading some reviews we were apprehensive to say the least!
