I'm Goin' To the Pyramids!

A travel blog entry by nicoleanderson

... bit better, I think because I wasn't doing any moving but just sitting and letting the horse take me. I snapped a few pictures of the sphinx and we started back to the stable. I was feeling well enough to ride the horse all the way back, then I headed straight inside to the air conditioning and got a drink of water and tea. This helped a lot and I felt better. We went for lunch after this, which helped even more. After lunch, Hosny dropped me off at the Egyptian ...

... like an underdeveloped and broke country compared with the prosperity it seemed to have long ago. Their main source of income is the Suez Canal followed by tourism and agriculture.The South seems more fertile but since they built the dam in the 40's the land that used to receive annual fresh flows from flooding has lost it's fertility. The tourism is not in a great shape- 3 years ago our guide Mega, used to do trips back to back for 4 weeks then have 1 week off. Now he's on 1 ...

Mystical markets, heritage dance and walk through

A travel blog entry by thaines


... most average retail sales people in Sydney.

My guide suggested that i didn't buy anything at the markets since most was cheap made in china Egyptian sovenirs. I was really at the markets to experience and see this spectacle for myself and old Islamic Cairo more than shopping so I was happy not to buy anything. I did however go up to a few stalls, turn over the souvenir statues and ask where all this was made from. Most of the time i was told all hand made but ...

Egypt's version of Cancun without all the fun

... went to today. A lot of rocky shores...and not a lot of uninterrupted coastline to walk around in the sand. We haven't seen any other Americans. A lot of Russians and Europeans. A few British....but everyone seems to be surprised when we say we're American.

The people are really friendly, but they are extremely poor since the overturn of their dictator two years ago. It's every man (don't see women working) for himself here, as they learn to ...

... crashes so he also took me to get it fixed... We had a nice lunch together and I tipped him very well. I also asked him to call Adel and tell him I didn't need him to drive me anywhere and that I would be ready at 6 pm to catch my train. He showed up at 6 and was not happy, he kept saying he was worried about me, because the guy at the front desk said I left with a guy on a motorcycle, ( my computer repairman ) I told him I was fine, then he proceeded to say how we were two ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Plaza Hotel Sharm El-Sheikh

Loved This Hotel!


Just got back from a 2 week stay at The Royal Plaza and, I must admit I was pleasantly surprised ( apart from the food ). Breakfast is fine if you like eggs!! though the Chef cooks great omelettes fresh for you. Evening meals were disappointing, so we decided to eat out, 'Onions' just round the corner have a great menu and the food is so cheap but so tasty.

Photos can be deceiving!!! Never go there again!


Definately disappointed, This is certainly not 4 star, maybe more 2-3.



great location.{you dont have to go in the mad taxis] the food was basic.. some of it ok,wine.yak!! we were told there was an outdoor barbie,its have to see it to believe it, (bless them)...staff very friendly,too much sometimes, the rooms were basic ,no terrace,but large inside.cleaner fantastic.. till we realised we had a few bits missing on arriving home,a nice bottle of aftershave and a lovely shirt! HE was a nice cleaner..we musnt have checked the room properly.

Supposed to be a 5 star but more like 3


this hotel had an impressive lobby but the rooms were very basic it used to be a shopping mall and still looks like one. the toiletries in the room were cheap and nasty and the towels were grubby. the dining room was awful more like a school canteen and the food was always luke warm. you had to get your own tea and coffee at breakfast as there were never enough staff to serve you.we had to clear the table and look for cutlery several times. we were half board and i wish i hadnt bothered as there were some lovely places to eat nearby. the rooftop pool was ok but the animation was non existent. there was also nothing to do when the sun wentdown you had to just sit in the room. the gym was ok but again very basic ie no towel or water cooler. in my opinion this is a budget hotel which is in a good location. i wish id paid more and stayed elsewhere.

We thought it was fantastic!!


We stayed at the Royal Plaza in October for one week and thought it was fantastic. We stayed in a suite that had 2 king size beds and lovely living area. The staff were extremely friendly and never expected tips, in fact when I did tip the young man who brought us room service, he looked extremely shocked. It was a beautiful hotel in an excellent location for the night life of Naama Bay. We stayed on a half board basis and even though the food wasn't particularly varied it was of a good standard, warm and plenty of it.

We couldn't fault the hotel at all and would definitely return to Naama Bay and the Royal Plaza Hotel - we had a brilliant time!

Royal Plaza Hotel


Normally I am not one to write a review although i do consult them regularly. The hotel itslef is as one previous reviewer put it a very good 3* or an average 4* hotel, not the 5* they rate themselves as.. I booked to stay at this hotel for three nights although ended up staying only one as I was visiting friends. While I found the reception staff to be very polite and cordial, the security staff are rude and think nothing of shouting at and manhandling a young woman travelling alone. I was there to see some egyptian friends and as i was being dropped at the hotel and preferring not to leave my room as I was alone I brought back a bottle of water to brush my teeth with as the water in the taps was a murky colour and i did not feel safe using it, I was stopped at the security checkpoint entering the hotel and told I could not bring it in with me. I argued with the man at the checkpoint and he roughly grabbed me by the arm and said come with me and called me a bad name in Arabic, I told him I understood some arabic and would not tolerate such language. At this point he started to shout at me that who did i think i was etc in front of a reception full of guests. I was mortified, I would never even send a meal back in a resteraunt no matter how bad it is, confrontation is not my thing. He then shoved me over to where the reception staff were standing looking at the situation unfold. I asked to speak to the manager and explained my case to him very politly and he was very angry with the security guy and allowed me to bring whatever i wanted to the hotel. He also invited me to have a drink with him by way of apology. I did not take him up on his offer but I thought he was very nice and much less intimidating than the security staff. The breakfast was ok, nothing to write home about but when I went up to the buffet for some more coffee, my half eaten breakfast had been cleared from my table even though i had advised the waiters that I was not finished. In all I would not go back to this hotel ever again as I felt that as a woman travelling alone the security staff should be more respectful, they were in other parts of the same resort that I visited. It is not the egyptian way to manhandle a woman and at most they will shake hands with you but only if you invite them to. They are a very kind and sweet society marred only by a few bad apples. When I told my egyptian friends of this incident they were horrified and offered immediatly to get me another hotel which at 10pm on the night of the feast is no easy task so I stayed where i was until the morning where my friends picked me up and brought me to the Concorde Hotel which I will say is fantastic. it is in a better location and the staff are very nice. The whole decor there is much nicer too and the variety of food and drinks available was much more extensive. I will go back to Sharm El Sheikh but next time I will book into the Concorde Hotel.

Excellent Servive at the Royal Plaza


Although this hotel is rated as a five star, it is a very good 3 star plus to a 4 star.

Needs Improvements!!!


On arrival the porter asked for two tips..... And seemed disappointed with the amount given.

Just OK


A 5 star hotel in name but in reality probably only merits 4 stars.

The egyptin people are not shy about asking for tips and this hotel is no different - the bell boy even came back up to the room to ask for a bigger tip, despite not even meriting the one we gave him!

The room was huge and very nice but not facing the pool as we'd booked.

The buffet dinner was nice - never the same selection for all 7 nights we stayed

Egyptian men are unfortunatley fond of leering at white tourist women and this was the case with the staff within the hotel and much as with the locals outside - that said it is a problem with egypt rather than this indiviual hotel.
