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

... m posting the video - it's bumpy because of the bus and because I'm not great with video, but you can just listen if you're interested. At about 12:20 in the video you can see our military guard chase off a vehicle they felt was too close to our bus.

About halfway through our journey we stop at a convenience store (the Israelites would have loved that!) and Bruce and I buy Cokes for our military guards. Turns out they can't accept them because it could be seen ...

Diving in the Red Sea

... seen, swam through a cave, and saw dozens of different types of sea life including blue spotted stingrays, pike fish, jellyfish, stone fish, lion fish, moray eels, dolphins (above and below the surface), and on our last dive a regal turtle swam right below us in the opposite direction along the aquatic highway.

Turns out that snorkeling is really easy, but diving isn’t. The best analogy for this place I’ve come up with is that Ras Mohammed National Park is like ...

Carbon monoxide

... experienced friend who also works for Sinai Divers. I explained what happened and we put up a security plan and action if it should happen again.

So this day we swam the exact same route down to 27.5 meters. Down on 27.5 I felt absolutely nothing. Of course I thought about it enormously. I imagined myself that I felt something. I stopped to feel my heart beat, but there was nothing.

    Falcon Hills is a decent place as long as you don't pay whatever the full price is...I think it's advertised as between 50 to 60 USD per night with buffet breakfast...that's too much but we were able to get $32 USD through lastminute.com and booking.com. We stayed 4 nights total...breakkie is OK, 2 pools, both nice but one has a really bad dj so we when at the pool we went to the back one which is heated and no crappy music. We were there to dive though and dove with pirate divers the dive shop in the hotel...great group of guys. Hotel was fine for us.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Falcon Hills Hotel Sharm El-Sheikh

    We won't return to this hotel either!


    I agree with all the comments rabbit1 from Preston makes. The smell of the sewage was not overpowering but it was not nice if the wind was in the wrong direction.

    We Won't Be Returning


    If your idea of an "all inclusive" holiday means "all inclusive" and not "a little bit of this today, and maybe a little of that tomorrow inclusive", then sadly this is certainly not the place for you.

    Do Not Go


    I have never had such a bad experience with a hotel that I've felt that I've had to write a review before.

    Great Little Hotel


    My wife and I have recently returned from Sharm El Sheikh, we stayed at the Falcon Hills Hotel. This being our first trip to Egypt and having read mixed reviews on Sharm El Sheikh, we just didn't know what exactly to expect. The hotel was great, 2 swimming pools, clean patios around the pool, friendly pool staff and a peaceful enviroment. The food was graet as well plenty of choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner (if you have a sweet tooth be warned stay away from the dessert table, with over 16 different desserts at each meal the calories just mount up looking at the puddings, cakes and pastries. The main courses always offered a meat dish, a poultry dish , a fish dish and a vegetarian option and all accompanied by an assortment of cooked vegetables and cool salads.

    Beware of subtle money scams


    The staff in general are very polite but beware of a subtle scam that they have got going. My experience was with Ibrahim, the pool attendant, but I have a feeling that it goes on elsewhere in Egypt too.

    ***A Good 3Star Hotel***


    Wow i was so gratefull when our bus pulled up outside this hotel because we went passed the cleopatra hotel, and it looked dreadfull and didn't have many good reviews.

    Nothing Special


    We stayed at the Falcon Hills in December 2006, being an 'allocation on arrival' from a Thomson Auction. Whilst we weren't expecting luxury, we were a little disappointed. Reception try to persuade everyone to upgrade to all inclusive on arrival, but most who did complained about the food. We were on a B & B basis: the breakfast choice was good, with many hot and cold buffet options. We had one lunch at the hotel - pizzas with undercooked bases-none of the staff are really interested in any complaints though, as several people found out.

    Good all round 3 star


    Stayed here for 1 week 7 - 14 Dec 06 on B&B as we wanted to experiment and eat out.

    The hotel was clean but basic, every day something was being washed or cleaned, the room was basic but had all we needed, fridge, tv, balcony, bath or shower and free safe and clean free beach towels everyday - yes you could take them on the 'free bus' to Sharm and their free beach.

    The hotel had a rule which,[----] me off, you cant bring any food or drink into the hotel, which, always means high prices, I would stay there again if they changed this rule.

    The breakfast was a good spread and the staff were friendly and did a good job



    I must say, we were disappointed by the Falcon Hills hotel, having had previous good holidays in the Sharm-el-Sheikh area.

    Falcon Hills worth the money


    I stayed at the falcon hills hotel 8- 22nd oct and thouroughly enjoyed myslf. It wasn't the heigfht of the season, but it was still very very hot. The hoel and it's facilites wre first rate and the staff were superb Egypt is a funny old place. you can go from immense wealth to poverty in the crossing of a street this is something you don't see in the hotel compound. and it's hard to visualise anything beyond the hotel. A taxi ride [about 35 egyptian to naarma bay will soon dispel the idea there's nothing to do. A great holiday if you want to chill out by the pool and do nothing
