... to Sharm again and again to dive. A Dutch family of three was on our dive boat. The parents have been to Sharm seven times in the past nine years, and the daughter five. They have all logged well over a hundred dives. We were not as experienced - this became evident to me as we jumped into the water off the back of our boat at Jackson Reef, a picturesque underwater plateau near Tiran Island, to begin our second day of diving and our first time ever in open water. The sea next to ...

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.

So this day we swam the exact same route down to 27.5 meters. Down on 27.5 I felt absolutely nothing. Of course I thought about it enormously. I imagined myself that I felt something. I stopped to feel my heart beat, but there was nothing.

Over 500 of us from the ship invaded the beach for a one time sun soaking afternoon. This paradisiac piece of land jutting out into the bay left us stunned in this luxurious oasis.

Ein Super Hotel
obschon das Hotel erst erbaut wurde und noch einige Mängel vorhanden waren, wurde es wunderbar gemeistert, vom ganzen Personal, sei das das Zimmerservice, oder die belegschaft die die Zimmer säubern, alles blendend, nur eine Beanstandung, man Müsste personal in der Rezeption haben, die auch die französiche Sprache beherrschen. Das Essen im Hotel ein Augenschmaus, kann es nur loben, Einen Dank an den Manager, der sehr Freundlich war, und an den wunderbaren Koch aus Deutschland. So genug, will 2006 meinen Urlaub wieder dort verbringen
I had a very unfortunate time at this hotel with Saga Holidays. At the time the pools were out of order and the majority of the guests were Russian. They were not good holiday companions, so be warned. The hotel management do try their best to sort things out but definitely not the place for the more mature person, especially the one on their own. I think that the sister hotel the Baron would be more suitable for the more mature guest who wants quality, peace, good food and a good view. This is certainly not the Baron Palms.
I spent a week there with my wife, and had a great time.
Wonderful, can't wait to go back!!
My husband and I have just returned from the Baron Palms Hotel. I would recommend this hotel very highly. The accommmodation, staff, food, facilities are all excellent. I cannot fault any aspect of this trip. It is ideal for a relaxing break with glorious sunshine, friendly staff, very comfortable accommodation and spacious public areas. The General Manager (Yasser) and his team of managers and staff are to be congratulated on the quality of their service. The hotel has an intimate feel and makes guests feel very special. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who are always smiling. We loved it so much we are going back next year for our silver wedding anniversary - it has all we want and much more!! Anyone who is going to the Baron Palms is in for a treat.
My partner and I spent a fabulous relaxing week at the Baron Palms Resort from 19th to 26th January. This was advertised as a brand new 5 star hotel, so we did not have a lot to go on. However, much to our delight, this hotel lived up to every star and was just first class.
We returned from the Baron Palms Resort last night after one week in this excellent new hotel which only opened in mid December 2005. It is associated with the Baron Hotel and linked to it by the Baron Boulevard, with facilities being available to both hotels. Even though it is 10-15 minutes from the airport, only an occasional plane could be heard and the noise was never intrusive.
We arrived at the Baron Palms Hotel on January 3, 2006. My husband, my mother in law and myself. We had made reservations back in June 2005 and about a week after the bombs went off. We chose not to cancel. We stayed for two weeks and we just returned. The hotel is only a few minutes from the airport. This hotel is all inclusive. This hotel just opened December 17, 2005 so everything was new. We loved every minute of it- but mostly our last week there. When we arrived, the hotel had a lot of guests from Russia and it seemed that everywhere you turned they were there. They were a bit loud, not what we are used to. Very few Brits but then again we learned that Russia is only 90 minutes by plane. The people working at this hotel seemed to be working 24 hours a day. Our room was beautiful facing the pool- our room was made up every day-the only concern there was that the "Animation Team" had the music on a bit loud around the pool during the day and then at night the entertainment was just below our room. This started everynight around 9:30 and it ended around 11pm. We dealt with it. During the day the pool was a bit busy (once again while the Russians were there) and so was the beach. The weather was nice during the day but be aware that there are some nasty flies and they will not go away even if you swat at them you need some type of bug repellent to keep them off you. This happened both at the pool and at the beach. At night it got a bit chilly so pack some sweaters.
