... hard line Islamic regime had said that the Anglicans were spies. The Iranian Republican Guard put the Anglicans under surveillance and noted that their church was frequently visited by the British Ambassador and other British Dignitaries. The Republican Guard interpreted this as proof
that the Anglicans were in fact spying. Terry Waite explained to them that the British were just going to church as they themselves might attend a mosque should they be in Britain. The hostages ...

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

... is it safe, it's delicious! The shopkeeper makes a cup for me and we chat in English. When a Russian lady walks in, he chats with her in what sounds to me like fluent Russian. These vendors and shopkeepers really are impressive linguists.

When it's time for bed, I'm ready for sleep and hoping for a softer mattress. But I'm also sad that our Egyptian adventure is ending. What a beautiful country filled with beautiful people. I hope to come back some day. Now on to ...

Sharm day 1 - diving

So today I'm up early to get ready and enjoy a full day scuba diving. The Red Sea is like Mecca for divers so I'm really excited about diving in in one of the best diving spots in the world. So we drive out in a mini bus to pick up people from all the different hotels. There many different nationalities here, everyone from Sweden, Italy, England, to German, Russian, Siberia and Turkmenistan. Everyone's friendly and keen to know where you ...

Sharm/Mt. Sinai

A travel blog entry by mjs265

From Amman, we flew back to Sharm el Sheikh (via Cairo). Sharm is a very resort-oriented place, and reminds me a lot of Cabo in Mexico. Though I wasn't incredibly impressed with the city's charm, it was really nice to just relax on the beach after running all over Jordan the previous few days. On our first day, we did just that: I met the girls at their hotel beach, and we stayed there for the remainder of the day. It was a lot of fun, and the Red ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Sinai Sharm El-Sheikh

    Erstklassiges Hotel

    from

    Hatte meine Augen bereits bei der Ankunft am Sharm Flughafen weit geöffnet und wurde deshalb wahrscheinlich nicht, wie der Rest der Touristen, von 'Thomas cook' einkassiert um beim Visa Nepp über den Tisch gezogen zu werden. Dafür habe ich mir für £10 selbst mein Visum bei einer unabhängigen Bank gekauft. Der Flughafen ist ein einziges Chaos, also sehen Sie es einfach gelassen und es wird alles ok. Als ich im Hotel ankam war ich hellauf begeistert. Sehr gut in die Landschaft integriert, freundlich, große saubere und gemütliche Zimmer, einem großen beheizten Pool, und einem wunderschönen Strand mit vorgelagertem Korallenriff. Die Angestellten waren alle freundlich und schienen zufrieden zu sein. Das Essen war erstklassig und es war für jeden etwas dabei, allerdings könnte es nach einer Woche schon mal langweilig werden. Der einzige Nachteil für mich, nicht für meinen Mann, war das Wetter. Heiß, sonnig und windig, aber sobald die Sonne um 16 Uhr unterging, wurde es kalt. Das Meer war auch ziemlich kühl und obwohl das schnorcheln klasse war, musste man, selbst mit kurzem Neoprenanzug, schon nach kurzer Zeit wieder aus dem Wasser! Mein Mann hingegen meint, dass die Tauchreviere hier sogar besser sind, als auf den Malediven!!?? Am Abend muss man auf jeden Fall eine Strickjacke anziehen und es ist nicht ideal um sich bei Nacht die Sterne anzuschauen. Das bedeutete, dass sich die Abende immer im Hotel um eine Bar herum konzentrierten, wo man sicherlich sehr bemüht war, die Gäste zu unterhalten, aber es war trotzdem nicht unbedingt mein Fall!! Das Ressort/Hotel war erstklassig für uns, da wir uns im Urlaub gerne ausspannen, wenn Sie allerdings mehr als das suchen, dann sind Sie hier falsch. Wir würden wieder hinfahren, vielleicht im März.

    Toller Service, gutes Essen, tolles Riff vor dem Hotel!

    from

    Wir hatten 10 Übernachtungen im Melia Sinai und müssen Ihnen einfach nur mitteilen, was für eine tolle Zeit wir hatten. Als wir ankamen waren wir etwas von der Rezeptionshalle entäuscht, diese war nicht gerade so pompös, wie man es vom Hyatt gewohnt ist. Dies war allerdings unsere einzige Enttäuschung während unsres Aufenthaltes!! Die Zimmer waren von einem sehr hohem Standard und die Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Essen war ausgezeichnet und bot genügend Auswahl. Das Korallenriff war atemberaubend, so hat man also alles, was man für einen tollen Urlaub braucht! Verstehen Sie mich jetzt bitte nicht falsch. Das Hotel ist nicht für jedermann geeignet, wenn Sie im Zentrum allen Geschehens sein möchten (der Naama Bay). Sie sollten aber auch nicht vergessen, dass dieses Hotel eine eigene Tauchschule hat und man hier auch zu allen Exkursionen abgeholt wird. - wir wollten uns einfach nur ausruhen und haben deshalb keinen Wert auf die Nähe zur Naama Bay gelegt. Es werden 2 Busse pro Tag zur Verfügung gestellt, aber die Ausflüge dauern nie mehr als 2 ½ Stunden und man war dort nicht gerade freundlich - ein Hin und Rückfahrtticket kostete 2 EUR. Wenn Sie also unberührte Natur erwarten, sollten Sie sich diese Touren lieber sparen. Dieses Hotel schenkt dem Detail zwar keine besonders große Aufmerksamkeit, wie das Hyatt, es kostet aber nur den Bruchteil des Preises und ich wüsste ganz genau, für welches ich mich entscheiden würde!

    3rd visit to Sharm and the Best Holiday of All!!!!

    from

    Just come back from two excellent weeks at the Melia Sinai. Many thanks to the other reviewer's on this site who recommended the hotel and helped us choose it for our holiday. This was out third visit to the Red Sea and by far the nicest hotel out of the three. Although the other two hotels were rated as higher than the Melia Sinai they really didn't compare. Melia has a lovely location right on the beach with an excellent reef for snorkelling and diving along with an excellent dive school. Every day many of the diving & snorkelling boat were out on the reef in front of the hotel and we found the reef excellent.

    Loved the Melia

    from

    This was our second visit to Sharm, our first having been to the Renaissance Golden View (currently ranked #1 on Trip Adviser), so we were prepared to be disappointed. No such thing, however. We booked flight and hotel separately so our first concern was the transfer but I arranged a pick up with the hotel which was fantastic. Amazingly, within 1 hour of touchdown we were unpacking our bags.

    Memorable holiday

    from

    we stayed at the melia from 27th april to 7th may. The hotel is 10 mins from the airport and approx. 18mins from naama bay. There is a shuttle service twice a day at a cost of 2eurs each.

    Great service, great food, great house reef!

    from

    Stayed at the Melia Sinai for 10 nights and have to say what a wonderful time we had. On arrival our we were disappointed by the reception area - it wasn't grand like what you might expect of say the Hyatt. However, this was the only disappointment during our stay at the hotel!!! The rooms were of a very high standard and the staff were all friendly and helpful. Add to this the fact that the food was varied and of a high standard and the coral reef was amazing and you have the recipe for a great holiday! Don't get me wrong, this hotel is not for everyone. Steer clear if you want to be near the happening local place (which is Naama Bay) but bear in mind this hotel has an onsite diving school and if you book excursions you get picked up - we just wanted a chilled out holiday so being near Naama Bay was not key. They do lay on buses twice a day but the trips last no more than 2.5 hours and they're not courtesy - 2 euros for a return ticket. Also steer clear if you expect everthing pristine. This isn't a hotel with the attention to detail of the Hyatt but at a fraction of the price I know which one i would choose!

    Great hotel

    from

    This was our third visit to Sharm and we fancied a change of hotel. We booked hotel and flight seperately with 'On the beach'. (Were determined not to fly with Thomas Cook/JMC as leg room is pretty non existant). Taxi from airport to hotel was as we expected - expensive!

    Excellent Hotel

    from

    Arrived at Sharm airport with eyes wide open, didn't get herded into 'Thomas cook' visa buying scam, but bought £10 visa from independant banker booth. Airport is total chaos but this is to be expected, just chill and all will be fine!!
