... so I guess we disappointed them.
We wondered the length of the beach looking for the "public" beach area. On the way, we found a sign for "Happy Hour" from noon to 1pm. After more wandering we found the "public" beach. But by that time it was noon....so we went back to our first find - HAPPY Hour - and had some Egyptian beers with some ...
This morning started very early, and I was really ready to get out of bed - not because of my excitement over a day of sightseeing, but because our hotel room beds were so gosh darned hard. I would have slept on the floor except that the floor was tiled. I couldn't decide which surface - the bed or the tile - was harder.
The lack of sleep has put me in a bad mood, so it's a good thing we have a military escort for the day - otherwise I might hurt somebody :)
... of the afternoon I took a taxi into town. The wifi at the hotel still wasn't working and I really needed to check a few things out (and let people know I was still alive). The taxi dropped me off in Naama Bay, Sharm's lively tourist centre. At least, that's what it is known as. When I arrived however, things were pretty quiet. Must be the time of day, I thought. I found an internet cafe in a mall with the help of a security guard, and spent an hour or so ...
... there was a nice sea breeze that meant it didn't feel nearly as hot as usual. The first stop was at Jackson Reef to which I helped steer the boat towards as captain for a while. This was bar far the best reef we had seen in the Red Sea. The corals had some colour, there were more fish and varied species of fish not to mention a spotted ray and a giant turtle. So cool to see something different. We all snorkelled for about an hour before ...
... of Russia (prior to his rule), hold valuable relics including some remains of St. Katherine.
We visit the museum of religious and historical artifacts which hold many old books, icons, paintings and over 6,000 manuscripts. The Codex Syriacus, dating back to the 4th century, and Codex Sinaiticus, two of the most well-known codices of ancient times, were discovered on this property ...

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.
