... 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 ...
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 ...
... I would be more than happy to stay awhile. It's hard to believe that in 2004 a terrorist drove a truck into the lobby of this hotel and detonated a bomb, killing 34 and injuring hundreds. Not incidentally, we go through several layers of security to get into the hotel. But I doubt the place is much of a target now, seeing we're about the only guests here.
We have the afternoon free, so Bruce and I try relaxing on the beach for a bit. That's when we get hit ...
... resort, all by itself in the middle of nowhere.
I fade off to sleep… and when I wake up, we’re at the Sharm El Sheikh bus station. It’s a long, shadeless gentle slope down to the city—but I figure I’ll just go ahead and walk it. Here there are no mountains of trash… no bustling crowds of people… no dreary apartment buildings covered in a layer of grime… It’s just ...

Volunteer one and two do as their told but the third girl is scared beyond belief. The snake woman whispers something and the girl leans down to kiss the cobra. Just as she’s within inches of kissing the cobra, the snake woman jerks the cobra’s ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Moevenpick Resort Sharm El Sheikh Sharm El-Sheikh
Had previously been for a week on a Nile cruise, then
This hotel was great!! The staff were so nice, especially the restaurant staff who treated us like kings (going to the local shop to buy extra diet coke because they knew we liked it, we didn't even need to ask). The themed buffets are amazing, lots of wonderful dishes and again great service!! We tried the on site indian restaurant which was amazing, one of the best I have ever had.
We knew as soon as we arrived at the Sofitel that it was not of 5star standard and in fact asked to be moved the following morning. I agree that the hotel looks nice but the rooms have seen better days. The bathroom badly needed upgrading. The radio consol was hanging off the wall with the switches melted. The breakfast room was dark but perhaps this was to conseal the birds which were flying about. The staff made attempts to keep the food covered but this was impossible as kids would not replace the covers. We were shown two other rooms but they were just the same, just with nicer views. We asked to be moved and went to the Hilton Dreams which lived up to earlier reviewers comments. If it is views or the beach that you want this is the place, but you won't find the rooms pleasant at all.
We stayed at the Sofitel in June of this year, and it wasn't quite what we had expected from its 5* billing and previous reviews.
We went with our two kids, 6 and 2yrs and the mother-in-law in August 2004. We had a nice time, but there were a few problems. Our flight was delayed 24hrs due to our plane being stuck in Florida while a hurricane battered the state, that's life!
Enjoyable & Peaceful
If you are looking for the more peacful and private beach, this is the place. The hotel shares a promenade with the rest of the hotels where good reasonably priced food and loud entertainment is available.
You have to request a room with a good view though but ensure that your room does not have a door to the adjoining room as it can be very noisy if you have neighbours.
Food is good as well and you are spoilt for choice at breakfast.
Angenehm und ruhig
Wenn Sie nach einem ruhigeren, privateren Strand suchen, sind Sie hier richtig. Das Hotel teilt die Promenade mit den anderen Hotels, dort bekommt man günstig etwas zu essen und viel laute Unterhaltung. Sie sollten um ein Zimmer mit gutem Ausblick bitten, aber eines, ohne Verbindungstür zum anderen Zimmer, weil es ziemlich laut sein kann, wenn man Nachbarn hat. Das Essen ist gut und man wird mit einer großen Auswahl zum Frühstück verwöhnt.
Antiquated room, unequal service, average food. It deserves 3 stars. Best thing are the 4 hotel's private beaches, but you better rush at 7 a.m. to cover the chairs with your towels if you expect to find a place. Some people monopolise them all day long without going there. Food like almost everywhere is disgusting. Best restaurant is The indian in The Camel hotel in Na'ama Bay. Weather and water temperature are fantastic.
We have just returned from a week at the Sofitel Hotel in Naama Bay. Having not been to Sharm before we really did not know where to stay. The hotel was recommended by friends who had stayed before.
Beautiful views from the Sofitel
The sofitel in Sharm was a great surprise , the rooms have very high ceilings with lovely Egyptian furniture. all with a balcony with beautiful views overlooking Naama Bay. The hotel and grounds have a very spacious feel particular around the large swimming pool.The very efficient and friendly staff can not do enough to help you. The whole complex is very well kept and clean. Although i was very wary about the good reports on the Indian restaurant in the Sofitel I can confirm that it is one of the best ever and certainly worth a visit even if you dont stay at the hotel. I cant wait to go back to the Sofitel
