Xperience St. George Homestay
Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
From the minute we arrived at the Three Corners St George, we were harrassed by sellers. We hadnt even got in the restaurant for our evening meal, when staff were trying to sell us beduin dinner, city tour and sunset cruise.
There was no entertainment that night, so we ended up sitting in the no smoking reception with oaps. Back in the room …
... he was being led into a cell to see members of the Anglican Church in Iran who had disappeared and presumably taken hostage. He started the lecture with an amusing story occurring at the end of his solitary confinement in Beirut. Each time Terry Waite was moved during captivity his captors bound him from head to foot in masking tape – a good day for manufacturers of masking tape in Beirut he joked. So bound he was bundled into the boot of a car and driven off. He soon ...
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 ...
... could have parted. And they've found chariot wheels in this area. The sea here is at least 10 miles wide. That crossing must have been an unimaginable experience.
After a couple hours' drive we arrive at our hotel, the Hilton Taba, which is right on the border of Egypt and Israel. It was built when the Sinai was under Israeli control, but is now in Egypt. It's a beautiful hotel and our room has the most amazing view of the Red Sea. It's peaceful and calm ...
... there was a nice sea breeze that meant it didn't feel nearly as hot as usual. The first stop was at Jackson Reef to which I helped steer the boat towards as captain for a while. This was bar far the best reef we had seen in the Red Sea. The corals had some colour, there were more fish and varied species of fish not to mention a spotted ray and a giant turtle. So cool to see something different. We all snorkelled for about an hour before ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Xperience St. George Homestay Sharm El-Sheikh
Got back from the St. George yesterday having enjoyed a week of perfect weather (ranging from about 32 to 37 degrees) for a horizontal holiday. First trip to Egypt so didn't have any expectations or much to compare with but found the hotel new, clean and not too busy. Rooms are very spacious (huge beds) if a bit basic and visited by the housekeeping team every day.
Best holiday i have ever had
just back from st georges what a holiday.the hotel was beautiful so so clean food was great we could not have been treated any better. it was so good that we are going back in a few weeks time.
Wife and I are just back from this hotel (16/23 Mar 06). I offer the following as a guide to visitors to Sharm and this hotel:
Stayed at the St George from 19th March to 26th March. This hotel is more a 2 to 3 Star and is the worst AI we have stayed in.
St Georges Three Corners - great!
Just returned after a wonderful week at St Georges hotel one of the Three Corners Group. I would strongly recommend this hotel - the food is great, the staff are very helpful and it is outstanding value for money. A good hint - try to get a pool side room because the rooms at the front of the hotel face a major highway and it can get noisy and especially when busses are dropping-off new arrivals in front of reception.
We did not meet anyone who had any cause for complaint. This is the first hotel I have been to where there are water fountains freely available all of the time - very important in this hot resort. We took our own kettle but it was not required as tea and coffee are available from early morning to late at night at the bars.
Had a really good time in The George.I am 34,male,and travelled alone.Met lots of really friendly people there,from all of European countries,including Britain,and of course my homeland,Wales.The staff there bent over backwards to please you.The food was really good.Even for a carnivore like me,and ate everything from steak,to cooked to order pasta with sauce.I had a double room,and it was spotless,and so comfortable.The air con was good too.Situation wise,its a mid between,the old market,and Naam bay.Taxi ride to both,about 2 quid stirling(that was being generous),20 egyptian pounds.To be honest,was dissapointed to learn that the beach was a short bus ride away,and did'nt go,but was told it was worth the trip,as you could also eat and drink there free too.Well all in all,i'd recomend it,but mix between the hotel and going to Naam bay in the evenings for drinks,as Naam bay is quite vibrant.You will make good friends with the staff.In fact they're texting me to come back.Enjoy your stay,regards C, Swansea.
Ok I will try to put down as much as I can remember without boring everyone!!!!
A decent hotel
We stayed here end of Feb, weather great, hotel very clean and fully open. Staff excellent and the food was good - could be repetative if there for more than a week. Rooms clean and spacious. Priavte beach via hotel shuttle is good with excellent snorkeling. Down sides - location, next to a water plant which was noisey at night for block nearest it, evenings were dull as entertainment was poor and the lobby bar lacked space and very smokey. Lack of sun beds - crazy habit of people reserving them with their towels at daft times in the morning ie all gone by 9am. Overall this would suit many people but personally preferred the location of other hotels where you could walk along a prom and visit defferent bars ie Hilton Fayrouz Na'ama Bay area.
