Baron Resort Sharm El Sheikh
Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
Just back from a short but busy break in Egypt, it was meant to be a relaxing, sit by the pool type weekend but between a whirlwind tour of Cairo, including the impressive pyramids, snorkelling on the most colourful reef you can imagine and riding camels and watching the sunset in the desert we have come back to Libya to chill out! We stayed in …
... wall was bottomless, there were dozens of snorkelers on the surface, and there were dozens of divers and hundreds of fish under water. The place was beautiful, but with everything going on around us both Leah and I quickly learned that we were in “well over our heads.” Over a period of three days we did 8 dives: two off shore on the first day, and three dives each on a dive boat the next two days. We did drift dives, swam through the most magnificent coral gardens ...
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 ...
... the monastery open to the public and some time in their museum, we had a huge, delicious lunch...at 11:45 AM. Then it was back on the bus for the long ride back to ithe ship which this time did not include any unexpected detours (although we again had a decoy bus, armed guard aboard, and police escort which changed at every state (county?) line checkpoint.) We were sound asleep by 9:00 PM. Yesterday we were still in Sharm El-Sheikh until 2:00 PM so we took the shuttle bus to ...
... And just near the guns and propeller, we also saw undetonated bombs with their manufacture date on the top: 1929.
We floated above the soldier’s gangway where British seaman once walked, and glided our way to the front of the ship where the massive anchor wench is. The chains holding the anchor are huge! We couldn’t believe that we were exploring this giant WWII steamship 100 feet below the surface. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Baron Resort Sharm El Sheikh Sharm El-Sheikh
I've just returned from an holiday at the baron. Well, I wish I'd chosen another resort !
We really had no idea what or where we going but literally just played pin the donkey with the brochure. What a lovely surprise, great staff, really fab with the kids. Huge rooms, immaculately clean. In fact, the staff everywhere just seem to clean or tend the fantastic gardens. No problems with food that friends warned us about (for the area in general). So cheap to eat out, free shuttle bus to Naama Bay. Resdtaurant manager really seemed passionate that everything was ok and had as much time as you liked to talk. We can not wait to go back and mock our friends who pay top dollar for Dubai. The beach was great with an excellent towel service on free beds with huge fixed straw umbrellas. Massage on the beach was addictive under a covered, open fronted 'tent'. Kids had a baby playground on the beach but amazingly only a few small kids were ever there (ours!!). The pontoon bridges out over the coral were amazing, I have never snorkelled & did not realise what I was missing until this holiday. So quick for the airport transfer 10 mins.), but not affected by the airport at all. Highly recommended.
Love the people
We have just spent 2 week at the Baron and enjoyed every minute of iour stay. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful the whole place very clean --rooms comfortable and the food on the whole very good one could not have expected more for breakfast---- the Indian and Egyptian resturants excellent. The weather was good during the day but cold at night which you would expect for the middle of winter. We took a trip to Cairo on the bus which was very good. We are an older couple who have travelled extensively and would say that The Baron will be fondly remembered by us and we would hope to return some day
Great relaxing break
The Baron Hotel is great, very clean and the rooms are very spacious. The staff very friendly and always seem to to either cleaning, gardening and making sure everything is perfect.
The beach is fantastic with great snorkelling, a very quiet beach too, sometimes it was like we had our own private beach!
Lot's of facilities, and the shuttle bus to Naama is regular and free!, Naama has some fantastic places to eat, and very cheap!
I will definately be visiting Sharm again and Baron resort
Myself and my boyfriend went to The Baron last October (2004). What a fantastic hotel, situated in a quiet area but a reasonable distance from the lively Naama Bay. The free shuttle bus is brilliant and runs frequently to and from Naama Bay. The rooms in The Baron are lovely, spacious and most of all clean! All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool is a great size and so near to the sea, this is what i liked the most. All the restaurants are nice and the Indian especially - fantastic food and wine! All in all i would recommend this hotel to everybody and i am planning to go back there again this year!
Dream came true
the best hotel we have ever stopped at .marvellous views towrds tiran island .The staff couldnt have been better although its strange having men do allthe cleaning.the reef is just 130 yardsfrom the shore reached by a floating bridge with amazing variety of fish to be seen either from the pontoon or under water .The manager mr ahmed khaled actually comes around the resteraunt chatting to you and asking if you have any problems but there were none .The gardens were immaculent with a large range of exotic plants . definetly a pace to stay
Lovely hotel, very friendly staff, nice variety of restaurants: the main one a large buffet (nice, but nothing too special), two very good one (a fish and Egyptian restaurant) and two pleasant ones (Indian and Italian restaurant). Meals cost about £15-20 pp incl wine and are cheaper in Naama Bay but we really did not like that very touristy town 20 min away by courtesy bus.
Please go its lovely
I cannot understand anyone slagging off the Baron Resort Hotel in Sharm El Shiekh.
This Hotel is the best by far that i have ever been to.
It is so bloody good that we have been back 5 times.
The food is excellant and the staff are all to courteous and friendly.
The place is spottless and the food is fantastic.
To those who dislike it try staying at home .
The beach is beautiful and the sea views are spectacular.
We have always suggested that The Baron should have a 5+ rating.
Again those who slag it off should stay at home as they obviously do not understand the term luxury or relaxation!!!!!
We went to the baron from Jan 6th - 13th 2005 after staying in the Iberotel Palace the previous year. The hotel is a large complex situated directly on Ras Nosrani (Christians head).
