... swimming comfortably horizontal and holding hands at a depth of 20 meters (60 feet) while admiring the beautiful turtle swimming in the opposite direction below us. One of our favorite things to do together is to share experiences and the past two days of staying on the boat all day and diving have been some of the most memorable to date. Let me know if you’d like to be notified of our future dive holidays to the Caribbean. I hear the Caribbean reef off the coast of Belize ...
... breathing lesson where their head was kept under water and once they passed this they were allowed to go scuba diving held onto by the instructor.
The fashion of the day beside the pool and beach is the bikini for young and old - the skimpier, the better or the burkini for the local ladies. Janet and I opted for a more conservative one piece.
Four days and four nights of relaxation, sun, surf and water. ...

Shower and then back to the buffet for dinner. Apparently each night is themed tonight was Mexican - one of my favourites - and it did not disappoint the guacamole was delicious! Just enough time for a night cap before hitting our ridiculously comfy beds.
Tomorrow we will just chill out and wait with baited breath for the arrival of Jets and Meaghan.
... museum. In the first room we see about 10 mummies, most of them pharaohs. The small faces are a brown/black color similar to a fire pit after the fire, not the gray/white color of a bare skull. You can also discern a bit of the facial features, too. Some pharaohs still have hair attached to their heads. Cloth covers their bodies but their hands are visible. At first the kids are ...

This place was not for us. But, we did get to sleep in and did so until 9am. It was dreamy. We put our feet in the Red Sea before we were picked up and saw that indeed people were on the beach. Looked horrific to me as the temperature was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Verginia Sharm Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
Arriving at the 'Sol Verginia' we were impressed with our first impression, our room was spacious and clean. It took us two days before we finally managed to get across that we wanted the two twin beds made into a double. Our first night was great and the next day we went for breakfast and a day by the pool.
Loved everything about it
The hotel was excellent, the staff couldnt do enough for us. The food was excellent and we always had a great choice of food, im a vegeterian and I had no problem at all in getting a really tasty meal. We did find it easier to go all inclusive instead of half board as it was expensive to continually buy drinks. The rooms were very clean and we had fresh towels and bedding every day. I would recomend this hotel to everyone and the staff cant do enough for you. If you are booking trips, go to the shop facing the hotel, it is half the price that the reps are asking.
The hotel itself was very nice and so were the staff. The food wasn't, however and I lived on omlettes and pasta which were the same every day and pastries - the cakes and pastries were very very nice! I travelled alone and expected to meet people while I was there which I perhaps would have done if I could speak Russian. 95% of the guests were Russian and I think the food may have catered to their tastes. It certainly didn't cater to mine and it wasn't local fare either, which I wouldn't have minded.
My boyfriend and I stayed for one week at Sol Verginia resort, and enjoyed it very much. As you can see on the pictures, it is a beautyful place, well kept, and with lots of plants and flowers. All the rooms are built around the huge pool, most rooms with a balcony or a small terrace.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 weeks in August. The hotel was lovely and the staff welcoming, friendly and considerate. It is situated in a good area with only a short cab ride to the local hotspots and sites, however...................ALL INCLUSIVE!! They said there was an English pub, yet this was just a sign we found which looked like it was going into the back of the lobby bar. There was only one restaurant called Septimus, which is nice with lovely food, yet boring and repetitive if you are eating there three times a day for 14 days. The 'Italian' restaurant is not a restaurant it is just a counter in the main restaurant which offers one pasta dish and just that......no variety and the same one every day. The oriental corner was non-existent. They said there was a late breakfast and snacks between dinners, however, the late breakfast was the left over pastries from breakfast and the 'snacks' were small rolls with a filling and this was the same every day and at times we had to ask as they had not prepared anything. The pool bar has excellent food, but is not included in with the all-inclusive so is expensive. The hours are also only until 11pm and any drinks after that you pay for and the prices are V.high.
We visited Sol Verginia in Aug 2006 and stayed for 1 week.
we stayed at the sol verginia for two weeks in august 06 and had a fantastic time. the food is great, hot and fresh every day with a great choice and lots of yummy desserts! the room is large and well equiped including hairdryer and tv, though could only get cnn news and bbc world news! but didn't spend enough time in the room to worry, kids were happy with a cartoon channel in english! we didn't have to get up early to get a sun bed as there was always plenty and the entertainment was good during the day and evening. entertainers were friendly and all staff always had time to answer any questions. beach was only a few minutes away with an hourly run bus, the hotel has its own sun loungers to use. as we booked the holiday online we had no tour operator but it wasn't a problem as there is a couple of places accross the road which we booked scuba diving trips and trip to cairo and other trips, which all were well organised and went well. we would book this hotel again. a+
Beautifil 3 star hotel
We stayed at the Sol Vrginia in November 05 and found it to be well above our expectations.
Our room was amazing for the price we paid - the staff were all really friendly (and seemed pleased to have some Western Europeans staying there at last).
The food was fine for a 3 star hotel, but we were dissapointed that the bar was not as well stocked as the Bar Menu advertised.
The pool area is gorgeous, and the Hannibal Spa located within the hotel offered great value massage/relaxation facilities.
Too far to walk to anywhere interesting, and you have to agree a price with Taxi drivers before you get in. The ATM was never working at the hotel, so make sure you get some Egyptian £ before you leave the airport.
Fab food,Great gardens
Two seniors stayed 2 weeks in this nice hotel in Feb 2006. The food was exceptionally good. We had a room overlooking gardens and pool( some rooms are at the back or sides of hotel and are not recommended -no balcony or patio/facing building sites.)Staff very friendly,efficient and honest.Pool not heated in off season.Twenty minutes walk to nearest public beach for excellent snorkelling. Free hotel bus to their own beach.Thirty mins walk to centre of Sharm el Sheik. Supermarket nearby (overcharges!)Taxi rank at door for cheap trips to other beaches.Only drawback were uncouth Russians and noisy Italians!
