... from the UK. When we returned to the "public" beach we found that it cost $2 Euro each to use the 30 foot wide access to the beach....with only about that much space at the beach front. Other beachs cost closer to $12 Euro each...so we did like our find.
There were two little Egyptian boys playing and we got a kick out of them and their families.
This morning started very early, and I was really ready to get out of bed - not because of my excitement over a day of sightseeing, but because our hotel room beds were so gosh darned hard. I would have slept on the floor except that the floor was tiled. I couldn't decide which surface - the bed or the tile - was harder.
The lack of sleep has put me in a bad mood, so it's a good thing we have a military escort for the day - otherwise I might hurt somebody :)
... in Naama Bay. Hamdy, my favourite waiter, served me soup and bread and we joked around a bit. His final conclusion was that J is a very lucky man (and who am I to argue?). The next day it was time for some more diving. We took the boat near Tiran Island this time. We did a drift dive at Woodhouse Reef and dove at the incredible Jackson Reef. Due to the current we couldn't go all the way to the drop off point and so I'm sorry to say that the only shark I've ...
... the restaurants sell fresh fish so we order some. The fish comes out grill with Egyptians spices and it's delicious. I can get use to eating fresh fish from the red sea, it's amazing. We have a big day of diving tomorrow so we muster up all the will power possible to avoid all the bars and clubs which are starting to fill up with people from all round the world. It's tempting but I want to strength an alertness considering I'm diving in shark invested ...

His hands and arms still out far to the sides and slightly up (no where near me) he blinks and stares at me. Still talking, he continues to stare at me as you would if you were to wake up with something, not entirely pleasent resting on your chest. That whole "I dont want to touch it to remove it, but I can't believe ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Nubian Village Hotel Sharm El-Sheikh
We got back from staying at Nubian Village just over a week ago. It was a last minute deal to get away for a relaxing week in the sun which is exactly what we got! We paid £360 for 1 week..considering some people pay this to go to Spain on a Club 18-30 holiday to stay in a grotty place and no food you can't grumble! 3 young ladies who are not easily pleased (although i would say that Sharm el Sheikh is more for couples rather than groups of girls and guys!)!! I think the trouble with these disappointing ratings is, obviously everyone has different expectations. This hotel is considered 5* - i dont know what some people expect but you know darn well not to expect the Ritz (which incidentally is also a 5*) - You expect the Ritz then should expect to pay Ritz prices! This is Egypt for christ sake and i literally do think this IS a 5* out there!
We recently returned from a two week holiday at the Nubian Village Resort in Sharm El Sheikh (2/8 - 16/8). We are very disappointed by the lack of facilities at the hotel, despite them being advertised on the website.
we have just returned from this hotel. We went for two weeks and have to say that overall we had an enjoyable time. Yes there are a lot of Italians and Russians there but we found that the staff in the hotel tried very hard to accomodate the English. They even employed a new English entertainments fellow whilst we were there I think that they had a few complaints about most of the entertainments at the bottom pool being announced in Italian and most of the English people missed out on a lot of the fun. The bar staff and reception staff are excellent and we didnt tip them until we left, the same with the pool attendants. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and the staff work very long hours keeping up appearances and making sure that you are comfortable. I will definately go back very soon I enjoyed the weather the lovely little private beach and the hotel and its very hard working staff. I agree that the hotel is not five star but that made no difference to us we enjoyed every minute well done Nubian Hotel.
Having just returned from this holiday I must say if you go with a open mind you will love this hotel . My first comment about the hotel is it is not a 5 star hotel probably a 4 star by British standards. First of all arriving there the reception was well set up for arrivals no messing about with rooms or luggage your rooms were allocated very quickly and your luggage delivered within a few minutes. The rooms themselves are very spacious air conditioned and a balcony overlooking the pool. The large foyer area is kept immaculate with the staff working non stop emptying ash trays and collecting glasses etc. The swimming pools are also kept very clean and again the staff work hard keeping it that way. There are two pools one a quiet pool which is very large for people and young children to just chill out at. The other pool which is also large is more lively with most of the entertainment going on there during the day. Both pools have swim up bars a godsend in the heat. The food in the restaurants was to a high standard with a fish , meat and chicken option every lunch and dinner there was also a pasta station and plenty different salads. The dining staff again where very friendly and spoke good English. The hotel bar staff again are very hard working and your supply of liquid refreshments flows endlessly. One of the big assets to this hotel is its private beach where you can walk out into the rock pools when the tide is out and watch the fish swimming about at your feet. After talking to other holidaymakers in different hotels I found not all hotels had this natural beauty on their doorstep so to speak. I found with the staff that a small tip of 10 or 20 Egyptain pounds meant that your glass was never empty and it showed your appreciation for all their hard work and the long hours put in by them.The hotel was full of Italians and Russians which again made a foreign holiday different. The only complaints I heard were from the British holidaymakers such as you cant get bitter here you dont get a full English in the morning and the staff are all foreign to name a few. So if you want to drink warm beer,eat greasy fry ups and spend time with people from a different culture dont go here. There is a shuttle bus running to namma bay 6 times a day for shopping etc I would say do not go there early as the heat is overpowering and most of the shops are shut better to go at night when all the shops are open and it is a bit cooler.All in all a lovely place friendly people warm weather and cold beers what more can you want.
We have just returned from the Nubian Village after 2 weeks. The weather was great even if a little too hot for me. The hotel is clean and the rooms are large, staff are freindly, the pool is lovely esspecially if you tip the pool guy...he will have your beds ready everyday..... BUT we we did have some major problems, My 11 year old neice cut her foot in the swimming pool on a broken bottle within 5 minutes on our first day....8 Sticthes in the sole of her foot which resulting in her unable to put any weight on her foot and not being able to walk very far, she was also unable to use the swimming pool, she spent the first 9 days of her holiday in the hotel room watching TV.Which also meant we were unable to go anywhere. The evening entertainment is very poor...all based around the Itailian guests/ Diso was not working when we were there. Food is very repetative Rice/Pasta/Vegtables/salad and chicken and vegtables soaked in oil every night. We all had upset stomachs for the whole 2 weeks. near the end of our holiday we did manage to book a trip to cairo to see the pyramids..this costs us 135 gbp each for 7 people.....the day was very long and very very hot... be prepared for the heat I would not rate this hotel as 4/5 Star more like a 3 . I would NOT go back again. This hotel is all set up for Itailan guests not English. We have raised our complaints with the Hotel and await there reply.
have just returned from this hotel had a brilliant time there are 2 pools the one near to the hotel is very quite and relaxing and is very big compared to others we have seen it has two bridges over to an island with waterfalls and a swim up bar which i do have to say needs a little tlc but the drinks come in double measures or sometimes even bigger if you tip the waiter at the start of your holiday! (gromer is usually here say hi from sue and buster if you see him) the rooms were very spacious and they all overlook this pool we had a ground floor room and only had to walk 6 yards to our sun beds which the pool attendant reserved for us everyday but again give him a tip at the start of your holiday for him to do this it is worth it. the food is good with a big choice every meal time although to be honest after two weeks i think it would be a bit repetative. go down to the beach if you can stand the heat and walk to the end of the pier and see the amazing tropical fish swimming at the end. we had a meal in the bedouin tent one night the guy is great and you get a huge tray of food just for two people and get to have a smoke on the fruit flavoured pipes!! all washed dowm with mint tea the entertainment at night is varied but to be honest you normally hook up and make some goods friends on holiday and sit around chatting. we would return to this hotel without a doubt i also notice that virgin holidays are now featuring this hotel in their egypt 2006 brochure for the first time
This is an absolute brilliant hotel, the staff are really friendly, give them crisps they love em. The rooms are quite spaceous with balconies which all have table and chairs, really nice to sit down at night to watch the sun go down-really romantic.
We were booked to stay in the Nubian Village Hotel, and when we arrived we were not on the register, we were then forwarded to the new sister hotel next door called the Nubian Island, which was un-finished. Many others suferred the same fate.
This is an extremely nice hotel with excellent friendly staff and in a pretty good location but does leave you thinking that you could have got more for your money. There is a lot of building work going on at this resort at the moment and the quality will improve but for now parts of the hotel look a little dated and could do with tidying up (Cracked tiles, peeling paint etc).
