... travels that we have been pickpocketed! We noticed right after it happened in the Aswan souk but it was too late. The little ******* made off with $20. It could have been much worse, but man was he good. He had mad pickpocketing skills. More than once we had to walk out of a restaurant or raise a fuss when taxi drivers or restaurant owners were ganging up on us to charge us double or triple the price. And I’m proud to say that Panu, in one very particular instance, yelled at a ...

Three days, three places, three cultures. Whew! Monday morning we docked at Aqaba, Jordan's only seaport. Four countries meet in this area: Jordan, Israel, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. Eilat, Israel, was maybe three miles from our berth. Our two hour bus ride took us up through the desert mountains where we occasionally saw farmers trying to eke out a crop from rocky, sandy soil. But mostly it was just barren mountains with dramatic black veins running through them. Upon arrival at ...

Sharm-El-Shiekh Sorry but Hot & Sunny AGAIN 90 degrees F
We had a really fun day today, Sharm-El-Shiekh in Egypt is well known as a Winter sun destination. It is very clean and a modern tourist resort.
From here we went on a Jeep and Camel Safari into the Sinai Desert. The 4x4's took us on an hours very fast and bumpy drive, with a couple of photo stops to look at ...

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!
