... seen, swam through a cave, and saw dozens of different types of sea life including blue spotted stingrays, pike fish, jellyfish, stone fish, lion fish, moray eels, dolphins (above and below the surface), and on our last dive a regal turtle swam right below us in the opposite direction along the aquatic highway.
Turns out that snorkeling is really easy, but diving isn’t. The best analogy for this place I’ve come up with is that Ras Mohammed National Park is like ...
Sharm el Sheikh is the travel destination for the international set. It is what Bali is to Australians. No Aussies but lots of Russians, Germans, English and every other nationality within a 5 hour flight radius.
We spent the day before battling Cairo traffic to the airport and then flying here. (1 hour flight). Shorter than the ride to the airport in Cairo.
Sharm el-Sheikh is situated on the ...
... signal to the boat where we were so they can pick us up, during which time we did our safety stop again. Back on the boat there was a nice lunch and in order to prove my adventure spirit I even had some sea food and veggies stew :-D By the time we finished eating we were almost back at Naama bay and from the quay we went straight to the College for all the paperwork. I got my temporary PADI Open Water diver card, so the major objective of the whole trip is now completed :)
... Gone are the bad pop songs that you hate, or your boyfriends amazing, catchy tunes that you hear played before you as you swing in time to the music. Nope. It is all about the "papas gunna bye you, mary had a lil lamb, twinkle lil star, wheels on the bus................".
You stop and all of a sudden your happiness is popped. Kinda like those bubbles that you have been blowing for Momo for hours on end to entertain him. Now don't get me wrong. I love this kid. He is ...
... to have a bit of a rest before dinner but was thwarted by the pornographic noises coming from the room next door. The walls are very thin, the couple are quite energetic and the woman appears to be a moaner.
I had dinner in the buffet (again, not much Egyptian food, although they do have an excellent babaganoush).
So... early night, late morning then a lazy explore... sounds like a plan.

Historical Traveler Reviews Three Corners Palmyra Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
"A lovely time we had"
Having read the reviews about this hotel we were a bit concerned but found them totally unfounded and had a lovely time.
We booked it on a last minute deal through teletext so was very cheap.
Rooms were very spacious and clean,
Staff extremely helpful.
Food was good, hot and plenty of it.
Location was a bit out of the way but didnt bother us.
Pool a bit cold but then it was february but we all still had a dip!!
we had a great time and have booked to go back to the same hotel in October!!
If you're not fussy about having a variety of good food and are not interested in leaving the resort then this is the hotel for you.
Never in my life time
Certainly not a four it would push a three, the food was not to the standard of a four star and the choice for kids was terrible. The room we had was a good size, and the staff were very friendly especially if you tipped them. The pool was freezing. Over all we had a good stay if you are looking to be entertained this will not happen so take a deck of cards or o good book with you.
We have just returned from a weeks holiday at The Three Corners Palmyra Hotel. This is definately not a 4 star hotel. It would be lucky to scrape a 3 star rating.
After viewing some of the reports about this hotel I would like to correct some of the half truths that have been written.
Just arrived home from this hotel today, we stayed for a week from 23rd January 2006 - Myself, my wife and our 3 year old son.
Just got back from the Three corners resort prymira..
Hotel was very clean and staff very helpful and friendly..
Pool was freezing so unless you like ice baths dont consider going in!
Food to a good standard and plenty of choice..
It is under a flight path so be prepared for some noisy planes but its only a few times a day...
overall a good clean hotel with good staff and good standard of food a good base for seeing Egypt..
P.S. dont take the coach to the pyramids as it is an 8 hour drive each way on very bumpy roads ....
I have been in Three corners palmyra from 18th to 25th of december 2005 with my family...two children 7 and 3.
