Baron Palms Resort Sharm El Sheikh
Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
Only a 4 1/2 hour flight, arrive earlier than normal so a couple of hours sunlight left. Interesting journey via taxi to the hotel, which included having to get out of it as we got grounded on a sleeping policeman! Hotel is very spread out, nice gardens. First rooms not to good but the girls manage secure new ...
11/11/2013 - Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt
We took the taxi(or limo) to Na'ama Bay. The limo service dropped us off at a "friends" store so that we could have a place to call when we wanted to go back to the ship. Of course, they wanted us to spend our money at the store on knock-off t-shirts of the Hard Rock Cafe, or oils/perfumes , or whatever. We did ...
... m posting the video - it's bumpy because of the bus and because I'm not great with video, but you can just listen if you're interested. At about 12:20 in the video you can see our military guard chase off a vehicle they felt was too close to our bus.
About halfway through our journey we stop at a convenience store (the Israelites would have loved that!) and Bruce and I buy Cokes for our military guards. Turns out they can't accept them because it could be seen ...
... for me! Back to an intensive diving course and lots of fun theory. Back to a not-so comfortable bed. Back to will and Matt. If you hear a resigned tone in that don't, I prefer dahab to Sharm by a long shot, in price, people and place. I still have had an amazing weekend here. It's been great to have someone here who you really know, and now I know why people go travelling with their friends more often than on their own! It's easier. But I guess I've learnt the hard way. 40 days to ...
... so while I had no intention of getting souvenirs I walked out with a bag full. But I was also able to get a good deal on a 2 day scuba diving adventure, so I guess it all worked out in the end. As soon as I left these guys, another guy approached me asking me the same questions and told me I looked Egyptian but I was not falling for it again. Everyone had something to offer me in this Cancun version of Egypt, it was easy to ...

You can have lunch on the beach as well.
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.
