... the green and fertile Valley of the Nile,where 98% of the poulation live.Date palms ,nicely kept, small productive tracts of land, with Families working,new large resivours in place further back.
We skirted the villages ,on a new highway and into Luxor,every corner is culltivated,vendors crouched in the shade with nuts and things all set out on the ground.
Amongst it all ,so close to civilization, we saw the Avenue of the Sphnix,perfectly placed in this huge line ,human ...
Arrived in Safaga Egypt before 7:00 AM & my guide and driver were waiting on me. Jim didn't go, still wasn't feel good. We drove to Luxor which takes 3 hours. Really pretty drive, desert with small mountains. Luxor is a really pretty town. First was the Karnack Temple. Really amazing site. Just can't believe how they built these temples. Of course a lot has been destroyed over the years but still so much ...
We only saw Safaga from the ship's window's or deck. It wasn't easy for me to get out as the taxi's were limited to come no closer than a 15 minute walk and the temperature was 95F/35C and I couldn't walk it in 15 min on the best of days.
Kent decided that seeing the Valley of the Kings ...
... amazing. The size of the place was incredible and you can't imagine how all that stone was put in place all those years ago and a lot of it is still standing. Although some of the sphinx were damaged, they were still pretty amazing particularly the avenue of 365 of them that runs in a straight line for about a mile and a half!
The whole day was a fantastic experience and we returned to the ship pretty shattered after an amazing ...
Well i am going to take advantage of the fact that we actually have internet. We are floating at our night dive spot somewhere in the red sea and as I have opted out of the night dive. About half the group including Steve is down there looking for Spanish Dancers. You non divers will just have to google that! We had a ong drive from Aswan across the Eastern Desert to Port Ghalib where we boarded the Emperor Elite. The ride ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Iberotel Lamaya Resort Marsa Alam
Returned last week from a week at the Lamaya, partner is now only just recovering from the upset stomach which everyone we spoke to seemed to be suffering from in one form or another. The hotel restuarant food was very mixed but there was usually something vaguely familiar to be found if only pizza/burger from the beach bar (though I was never sure of the animal source for the meat).
Sono tornato da 2 gg da un soggiorno di una settimana dall'Hotel Lamaya di Marsa Alam in Egitto!!!
I just came back yesterday from a weeks stay in the lamaya.
We have just returned after 2 weeks at the Lamaya. Even though I wouldn't consider it a 5* resort (more like 4*) I have rated above average as there's factors to consider such as where you are in the world, the heat etc and what we paid for the holiday, even though my hubby was ill for at least half of the time.
I am a 22 year old woman and went away for the first time with me old dad. We literally just wanted good weather and a relaxing time.
Just got back from Marsa Alam on 31/5 after having a fantastic 2 weeks. The hotel is set in a complex which houses 5 hotels around a coral reef edged bay. The added bonus of staying at the Lamaya was the jetty which streached straight into the heart of the bay from which you could snorkel.
Just returned from a week at the Iberotel, Lamaya Resort, between 03 May and 10 May. Our room was extremely comfortable and clean, facing the sea. It would be difficult to find anything to complain about: the weather was very kind to us, the sea just right for swimming in at 25 C, the food of a very high quality (although the breakfast was aimed towards the Germans and Italians). The staff very responsive and accommodating. The variety of food on offer was outstanding however because its a Muslim country do not expect any pork.
Returned early hours of Saturday morning from a week at this hotel/resort. One thing to watch our for are the Russians/Eastern Europeans staying here. Rumour has it they only paid $100 for the week!!! Should be interesting during the height of the holiday season when the British begin to arrive in bigger numbers. The brochure states 389 rooms of which max 20 occupied by British!!!
returned last friday from hotel lamaya, marsa alam, be aware that you will almost be sure of getting a stomach upset as a lot of us brits did, immodium won't solve the problem take something stronger. the food in the hotel although of good quality was of international cuisine!!! therefore it tended to be aimed at the german clientelle. lots of fun with towels around the pools also. you cannot access the sea directly from the beach. staff and rooms were brilliant. excursions brilliant. if the hotel could just adapt the food it would be definite return visit for me.
