Panu’s guest post about diving:
Through my adult life, one of my main phobias has been a fear of drowning. One day while swimming with my elementary school class I had a flotation mat flip on top of me and I panicked because I didn’t know how to get above water again. Since then, there have been numerous times ...

We stayed at the Marriot Hotel. Our Hotel was on the mountainside and the better half was on the beach side. Crossing to the beach meant a 5 minute walk over a busy highway with traffic police slowing down the traffic to allow tourists to cross.

But that wasn't the end of the excitement: about twenty miles outside of Safaga the freeway (dual carriageway) split apart with opposing traffic going on opposite sides of a mountain. For some unknown reason, just before the split our driver decided to leave the convoy, crossed over the median, and took us the last twenty miles the wrong way down ...

The rest of the dive was a nightmare. I thought it would happen all the time. I did not go deeper than 12 meters and held me close to Jeff if it would be any problems. After the dive when we got up he asked me what happened. I replied that I had problems in pressurizing. When we got out of the water, I was still in shock. I did not feel the weight of the scuba gear when I went against the atmospheric ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Shores Amphoras Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
Not For Us
Todays date 19/10/07. Just got back from here last night and dont know where to begin. I have a funny feeling i wont be the only person rating this hotel. First of all the only thing 5 star about this place was the weather and the staff,food was the worst i've eating in my life and we all like a drink especially on holiday but this was a total joke,when you went to one bar and we all know which one if you were there the barman looked at you as if it was coming out of his pocket and we were meant to be all inclusive. What am i talking about when we got there they didnt even have a room for us but they found one unlucky for us. Will be back to Sharm el Sheikh but not to the Amphoras.
This resort is huge. I have just stayed at Hotel Amphoras for two weeks with my wife and two children 7&5. The hotel itself is nothing like I've ever seen, it's endless. The most impressive thing has to be the number of swimming pools (6) and the ability to jump off the jetty on the beach to be swimming on one of the most amazing coral reefs I've ever seen!
Me and my bofriend have just come back from the greatest two weeks ever in egypt. We stayed for two weeks in the amphoras holiday resort hotel in sharm el sheikh, i thought i would write a review as there isn't many reviews that give this hotel justice.
My friends and I stayed at the Amphoras Holiday Resort during the first 2 weeks of July this year and we loved it. A fantastic holiday. We're three girls - aged 21-22.
Brilliant holiday 10 out of 10
First of all may I say that Ive looked for reviews on this holiday and only found the negitives ones. Unfortunately these must have been written by somebody who is extremely fussy and not familiar with foreign travel (typical brits abroad). Brilliant hotel and very well presented and maintained, immaculate gardens and rooms. Foods was all inclusive and lots of it to cater for all tastes (even brits).. Beach was reported to be not sand but it is, just a bit corser than english beaches. Lots of different nationalities in the hotel, many Russian and Italian, but when your abroad what do you expect, its another country!!. All in all we had the best holiday ever and would not hesitate to recommend to other. Good value with a 5 star service.
We went to Sharm last November for a cheap 1 week break. We booked the Amphoras Holiday Resort half board on the internet and our flights seperately.
Hotel in a really nice setting very clean and well kept. In total were approx 16 english people in the entire hotel 11 being in our party, all signs relating to entertainment etc were all in italian. food poor standard very rarely warm, pasta every meal resulted in us eating out quite alot during the two weeks. All inclusive option very limited which is not stated in the brouchure. can only get a drink in specified areas at specified times, had to sign your name for every single drink obtained from the bar two signatures required for one drink if the glass was slightly larger. complained to odessey representative who didnt advise hotel of our complaint. two days before coming home resturant manager became aware that we were not happy and advised hotel manager who i have to say was very very helpful and very sorry that the rep had not informed him earlier in order for him to try to correct the food issue earlier in the holiday. The hotel manager was very customer focused and asked our opinion on improving the hotel which we did let him know for the benefit of future guests. He did send drinks and fruit baskets to all our rooms in an atempt to try to resolve the issue as best he could at the late stage of the holiday which was appreciated. The hotel staff are very friendly and the cleaning staff work extremely hard every day. If this hotel wants to attract english guests then alot of changes need to be made. Fortunately we were in a large party of friends and family and made our own entertainment however if Id have travelled in a small party I would have requested to be flown home early. We planned an All Inclusive holiday and spent as much as if we had gone self catering 11 english people will not return to Amphoras holdiay resort in the future.
