... a half hour non-stop drive through the desert. It was a relief to finally get to the Nile and see some greenery! Our two buses were the only ones in the huge parking lot at the temple of Karnak. The various uprisings and demonstrations in Egypt have been terrible for the tourist industry, but great for we tourists. Our guide this day was an Egyptologist who lectures at the American University in Cairo and was absolutely brilliant. I wish you could have heard her whipping out ...
... to come into their shop or restaurant and if you don't they'll say see you tomorrow and you say yes probably! My alternative so far has been to workout very complicated routes across town to get to wherever I'm going and not to disappoint these people, but it can't be like that forever! Still missing you all lots, but this place is starting to grow on me, mentally I mean, not in a fungus sense. Thank you for reading! Hope it's worthwhile. p.s some things may be exaggerated for comic ...
... At each checkpoint we came to there were about 20 guys sitting around either smoking or sleeping or looking bored to death. And always one sitting at an official table I think writing number plates down but half the time this guy was asleep anyway!
So all was going fairly well at this stage. Until we got to the hotel…..down a little dirt alleyway, next to some half built edifices. 5 men came out to greet us with varying degrees of English, 'welcome’ being a ...
The last two days have been travel days and exhausting to say the least. Why is it that sitting on your butt for so long can be so tiring? Check out my journey on a map : Bahariya Oasis to Cairo to Dahab. 15 hrs on a bus. I cannot say that my bus trips were uneventful though. I woke up yesterday and was largely disorientated. I slept so soundly and deeply that I couldn't remember where I was. Now when that happens at home it doesn't take long ...
... higher. This time it was rather difficult to figure out where you were supposed to actually put your hands/feet to climb! But using alot of brute force and unknown-to-me upper strength, i had my figures stuck in cracks that were millimetres wide and pulled myself again to the top. But the time we got to the last wall (and after eating a turkey sandwich mmmm) I really felt it was impossible to do. After much slipping and more grazing to add to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jaz Mirabel Beach Sharm El-Sheikh
My partner and myself stayed at the mirabel for 2 weeks 17th-31st August.
Arrived back this wek from a weeks holiday in the Mirabel Beach Hotel. The Hotel is beautiful and because its new there really isnt anything you can complain about, the only thing that really niggled my partner and I was the intrest given to the germans! the way the waiters laid out towells on their sun beds and brought them drinks all day but did we get asked? No. We did get a good deal when booking but that shouldn't make any difference to the way we are treated on holiday. I would always treat people with respect no matter what thier religion or nationality so why do we get treated like this. I must admit it was mainly round the pool area and everything else was lovely but it's just annoying. The disco wasnt open but it was due to open in a few weeks and then I'am sure there will be something for everyone. Try high tea at the A-la-carte they have treats that are scrumptious.
Just got back this morning after 8 days of lazy sunbathing and wish it had been 8 weeks!! After iffing and wiffing for weeks about cancelling this holiday having read one of the very first reviews, I'm just so glad that I didn't - it is absolutely beautiful in so many ways and in my opinion getting better every day. By the way, this could go on a bit, so stop now if you don't want to fall asleep....
Fantastic relaxing holiday
My wife and I recently returned from holiday in the Mirabel beach resort, and found it to be the most relaxing 2 weeks of our lives.
The hotel was spotless, staff really helpful, and food was great.
I would recomend this hotel to anyone looking for a lazy holiday, although there is a great deal of trips to go on.
If there was anything I could say bad about the place was the fact that the staff where not fully trained yet and found it difficult at times dealing with people's request's. hopfully this is all ironed out by now, as it was just opened.
dont be put off though because as far as value for money goes this is got to be one of the best places to go for the price you will pay.
We arrived when the hotel had opened only 3 days before. All was beautiful, very clean all staff helpfull and very friendly. We - a family with 2 kids of almost 15 and 13 - had the time of our life. Go to the gym and meet Ashraf. He really knows what excercise is all about. In the main restaurant Mr. Rabie knows how to train the waiting staff - say hello to Whaled. The buffets have a large variety, the dessertchef - Chef Mamdouh - is a wizzard with sweets. Say hi to him too! Our family room was for our family a litte cramped, the beds for the kids very hard. Take your own pillow, that helps. The beach is very clean, the Reef is a perfect poolbar/snackbar. Say hi to Reda and chef Sameh here. You will find you are a guest here and not a tourist. Enjoy every minute, this is a resort to return to. Regards from the Dutch family Vermeij.
Initially we too were worried about the fact that people were reporting back that the hotel was unfinished and had no facilities. I can tell you that there was no need to worry.
We had a fantastic holiday at the Mirabel. The rooms were spotless as were all the facilities. The food was excellent and there was a very wide range of different foods. The staff were so friendly and helpful and made you feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. This resort tends to cater for the more relaxed holiday maker and maybe wouldn't suit people who like to get out and about a bit more. As the resort is still resonably new there isn't much to do outside the hotel but saying that it's not difficult to arrange excursions.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing, care free break with excellent hospitality and great views of the ocean.
we stayed here the first week in august and find it hard to believe that anyone staying here before this date found everything fantastic as only minimal areas were open then, however ,even during the week we were there more and more places opened,e,g, restaurants , pool bars, entertainment,,,,,
My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Mirabel Beach in Sharm El Sheikh. The hotel is brand new, the facilities were great and it exceeded all of our expectations. The staff could not do enough, the food was superb and our Thompsons rep lianne was very friendly and approachable. There was one A la carte restaurant open during our stay and the food was out of this world. The main buffet has a large selection and you have to try the all inclusive cocktails!!! We have travelled with thompsons many times and once again we were not disappointed. This really was a holiday to remember and i cannot recommend it highly enough.
