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.

I think I've used the word terrorist enough in this blog that the NSA is probably reading along. So hi guys! Thanks for all you do to protect our country!
We drive past the area where Moses and the Israelites probably crossed the Red Sea from the Sinai to what is now Saudi Arabia. There's a shallow strip that connects the two sides, so it's conceivable this is where ...

Thankfully this isn't one of those times. the mountains ranges along the side of the road as we enter closer to Sharm are beaturtiful. look to your left and you have Deserlet jagged and sharp looking mountain ranges towering into the sky and on your right beatuful blue calm water.

At this point Im so bloody exhausted you just kinda glare and hate yourself for wasting time. I could be 2 hours away from a warm bed with a lovely body in it.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Novotel Sharm El-Sheikh
My second trip to Sharm-el-Sheikh this time armed with a bit of knowledge we decided to stay near where the action is.
The hotel is situated in the heart of Nama Bay and is fairly small (190 rooms). Consisting of 2 storey buildings each room has a balcony and has all mod cons including air conditioning, safe deposit box, drinks fridge etc. The rooms are on the small size but are clean and bright. We chose the hotel because a member of the party has physical disabilities that confine her to walking short distances on crutches or using wheelchairs. She found the ground floor room ideal and the walk in shower with grab rails easy to use. Ramps in various parts of the hotel made use of a wheelchair easy. A wheelchair was provided free of charge throughout the stay.
The Naama Bay Hotel is in a good location within easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping.
This hotel is a wonderful place to stay. The first day we arrived the people at the front desk made us wait a long time to get our room, that is my only complaint. They were not as nice as I had hoped but at the end their attitude changed. The food is delicious. The theme changes each night and it's an open buffet. The pools are Fantastic! There are about 4 pools to 5 pools. Each one is clean and well cared for. I liked each one of them. The staff I met with was all nice and polite. The beach was small and you have to arrive early or it will be hard to get a beach chair. IT was crowded. The rooms are clean and pleasant to be in. The rooms have everything in them to make you comfy. There is also good entertainment there, Such as shows and music. Its a great hotel and family friendly. I recommend this hotel to anyone.
Great hotel but don't use the spa
We stayed in this hotel a week in February 2005. I liked the hotel and its natural surroundings a lot. Service and staff were friendly but the Egyptians are in general not very polite. To me they seemed agressive and rued. I signed up for SPA treatment and that was a horrible experience. It looks very proffecional but I don't think it is. I was massaged by a horny young man who tried to do more than just the massage. It was really unproffesional and I felt terrified.
LOVELY FAMILY HOTEL
Christmas last year was a nightmare we booked in to a bad hotel called the Halomy, The rep would'nt move us, so I went walk about and found this hotel the Naama bay hotel, the Staff couldn't do to much for us they got us a taxi and helped us move our cases to their hotel. What a difference, We have been back to this hotel last Easter and will be going there in Dec. The hotel's staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you, the room's are very large and clean. Excellent is all I can say.
My favourite place in the whole world
We have stayed at the Novotel in Sharm for two consecutive years and found it to be the cleanest and best hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff have always been friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic. There is excellent snorkelling directly off the beach which is spotless. I wouldnt want to stay anywhere else in Sharm.
Naaama bay must do before you die
great place to stay and eat snorkelling out of this world do not miss this place
