... has tried to pull me under water or I’ve been invited to dive below the surface "for fun." Well, the fun in these moments was one sided. In recent years I’ve been over coming my fears to prove to myself that long standing negative mental notions can be dispelled. I found that going skydiving was a quick way to face my fear of falling. Over New Year’s, after years of deliberation, I decided to become scuba certified and I have now completed several dives in the Red ...
Sharm el Sheikh is the travel destination for the international set. It is what Bali is to Australians. No Aussies but lots of Russians, Germans, English and every other nationality within a 5 hour flight radius.
We spent the day before battling Cairo traffic to the airport and then flying here. (1 hour flight). Shorter than the ride to the airport in Cairo.
Sharm el-Sheikh is situated on the ...
... Sinai side is almost all just sand, but there are a few towns on the west side with scattered developments all along the way. Two trains went past which made you-know-who happy! There is a force 5 wind causing a sandy haze. I have to keep wiping the iPad screen to write this! Thanks for sticking with this long entry. Tomorrow we dock in Alexandria where we have another bus trip to Cairo: Pyramids, the Sphinx, the Egyptian Museum, Tahrir Square, and ??? I hope you don't see us on the ...

We had a long chat there until he had to go back to the College for a staff meeting and I just waited for him on the beach :) I had a nap there and I didn’t even notice when the sun had set (happens quite early here), as the temperature didn’t drop a single degree :-D Stefan picked me up and we went to see the "old" town and have dinner there, again a typical local thing – pizza :-P And we brought our ...

Sure it looks purdy. I am soo not caring right now.
All they look like is pain! And they were so comfy when you try them on and walk for 10 minutes. This is why I HATE shoe shopping. what feels great for 10 minutes, can kill you later on, and you'll never know. And by the time you break in your favorite pair of shoes, they are all sold out, so you can't buy a replacement pair. evil. I hate shoes.

Historical Traveler Reviews Jaz Mirabel Park Sharm El-Sheikh
Nous venons de rentrer de l'hôtel Jae Mirable Park, c'était génial, le personnel est aux petits soins pour vous, ils sont souriants et plaisantent avec vous à longueur de journée, et ils adorent l'humour anglais, donc on peut plaisanter avec eux, ils en redemandent. C'est un immense complexe, qui possède cinq piscines, ne manquez pas de faire les toboggans, c'est très amusant. Thomson propose une excursion à 44 € sur un merveilleux bateau qui vous emmène directement faire en Mer Rouge faire de la plongée, on passe une merveilleuse journée, le déjeuner est bon et les gars qui s'occupent du bateau sont très drôles, c'est une journée bien remplie et le bateau est très luxueux, bref, une excursion à ne pas manquer. Je leur donne 8/10 pour les repas (pour les desserts qui sont très bons), 7/10 pour la propreté dans les chambres, quant à la décoration de la réception principale, elle est vraiment trop belle, 20/10. Là-bas il fait très chaud, le 23 avril 08, il faisait 46° . Profitez bien de votre séjour à cet hôtel!
We visited this hotel for a week as part of an all-inclusive Thompson package. It was our first time in Egypt so we decided to pay a little extra to get a better standard of hotel and we were not disappointed.
Loving the Jaz Mirabel Park Resort
Just returned from a wekk at the Jaz Mirabel Park, and would go back tomorrow given the chance.
Arrived at hotel and after going through the security gate got the wow factor from the beatiful reception area, cases taken to room for us by bell boy (Hassan), arrived 5 mins later, no probs.
Food good in the Flooka restaurant, and poolside snack bar, excellent services by all staff.
Weather brill didn't see a cloud in week!
Water slides great 5 of them open for 10-12 and 2-5 each day, loads of fun.
Only gripe the vodka was evil! but had to use the beer instead which was either stella or luxor.
Would got back in a hearbeat if i could!
Séjour Hotel Mirabel Park Sharm El Sheikh
Très agréable séjour en famille. Il est très difficile de trouver des aspects négatifs à cet hôtel situé dans un immense complexe qui en contient 3.
Le personnel est très attentif, les logements très bien entretenus et les installations au top.
Le beau temps était au rendez vous, l'eau de mer relativement chaude et par conséquent il était difficile de sortir de l'hôtel pour visiter la région mais cela valait le coup tout de même.
Seul bémol, à part le fait qu'il faille rentrer, le personnel parle peu le français, cela peut être gênant pour la clientèle uniquement rompue à notre langue.
Et puis il y a les clientèles russes et italiennes ...
We stayed at the Mirabel Park with 2 children (age 6 and 9) for 2 weeks from 13th march and had a fantastic time.
Loved the Mirabel Park
Reviewer: Val from Birmingham
This was a great value all inclusive hotel. Staff are wonderful - very attentive (especially to good tippers). Tipping is a way of life in Egypt - we tipped about £5 per day and got more than everything we wanted. Being all inclusive and nothing much outside hotel to spend money on, it turned out to be very economical.
We have just spent 1 very hot (44 degrees) week at Jaz Mirabel Club Hotel which we found wonderful. Although all the reviews seems to be about the Beach & Park hotel the Club doesnt seem to be mentioned. Although the Beach is the larger hotel we felt the Club had more of a personal service approach where at the Beach you are just a number.
We stayed at the Jaz Mirabel Park from the 2nd March to the 9th March 2008 and found the hotel to be lovely.
Just come back from a week at the mirabel park and would recomend it to anybody.its split into 3 resorts with the mirabel beach being the top part although as the pools area was so noisy with music all day from the hotel "animators" i prefered the park resort.no problems rooms all clean grounds and pool well tended with loads of friendly staff.food was allot better than we expected although if we were there for 2 weeks i would have got bored.only negative realy was that there was nowhere to walk to on an evening but if you want to go into town there are loads of taxis at the entrance.do make sure you negotiate a price BEFORE you get in as you will get ripped off if not,were told not to use the people carrier taxis as they are unsafe but only what im told.if your in narma bay or the old town make sure that before you sit down anywhere for a drink of food that you either get a price list or get a price 1st we got charged 26quid for six flat halfs.and look at the bottom of the menu as some places will whack on upto 25% tax and service charges.The best things we did were snorkeling on a day trip and the quad bike trip which we all really enjoyed,even my wife loved it and she has never drove 1 before and was well scared.All in all go and enjoy it for what it is-a cheap winter break to another culture and the best weather without going miles further.hope this is useful,any questions just let me know.
