Sensatori Sharm El-Sheikh by Coral Sea
Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
Conrad is a pretty hotel with beautiful coral reef and tasty cuisine. There is a stand-alone reef with a soup of baby golden-fish and parots. There is a pair of lionfishes living under the pontoon and sometimes strolling lasily in the daylight, sweeping swarms of slim blue fishes which are my favourites, and a family of dull-looking earthy-colored …

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 ...
... I would be more than happy to stay awhile. It's hard to believe that in 2004 a terrorist drove a truck into the lobby of this hotel and detonated a bomb, killing 34 and injuring hundreds. Not incidentally, we go through several layers of security to get into the hotel. But I doubt the place is much of a target now, seeing we're about the only guests here.
We have the afternoon free, so Bruce and I try relaxing on the beach for a bit. That's when we get hit ...
... in Naama Bay. Hamdy, my favourite waiter, served me soup and bread and we joked around a bit. His final conclusion was that J is a very lucky man (and who am I to argue?). The next day it was time for some more diving. We took the boat near Tiran Island this time. We did a drift dive at Woodhouse Reef and dove at the incredible Jackson Reef. Due to the current we couldn't go all the way to the drop off point and so I'm sorry to say that the only shark I've ...
... and is meant to be insane. It'll be expensive but hopefully it'll be worth it. Though we weren't inspired with confidence this morning when we walked past some Glaswegian Arabs who looked as if they were here for the party. Incidentally they were walking to McDonald's... Talking of this morning after a truly incredible breakfast me and Sam went on a walk to the shopping districts quite close to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sensatori Sharm El-Sheikh by Coral Sea
6 of us stayed at the Conrad. We nearly changed holiday due to bombings and the work that is being done at the hotel, but decided to go with it. Hotel fab, staff great, food good lots to drink and eat. Beach was great with beach towel, sun beds and umbrellas. Very hot, but expected that.
First I'd like to start by saying that my holiday in the Sharm el Sheikh was probably the best I've ever had and i had a great time there. Me and my family stayed in the Conrad for 2 weeks all-inclusive, returning on the 27th of August. The hotel on the whole was excellent, but there were some issues involving the all-inclusivesness
What a great hotel
We were also at the Conrad at the time of the bombings although this did not spoil our stay. The staff were brilliant and very caring, on the day of the bombings the general manager of the hotel himself visited all guests by the pool and offered his sincere apologies and offered every assistance he could.
The rooms were kept very clean and the animation team were exceptional despite during the second week of our stay when no one wanted to get involved with the activities.
My compliments to all, especially Mohamed (pizza chef), Sameh (pool attendant) Fathi (waiter) Mo (animation team leader)
We have just returned from the conrad and i have to say that the sea, weather, beach and snorkelling are fantastic.
We were in Sharm at the start of our hols when the bombings took place. The Conrad (like many of the hotels in sharm) are some distance away from the busier parts (such as Sharm town and Naama Bay). The hotel is quite secure. Off the main road there is a barrier with a security guard, approx 50 meters after this is 12 foot metal gates, again with a security hut. The hotel has security staff on the entrance to the hotel with a thing you walk through like they have at the hotels. This was all in place before the bombings.The start of our hols were a little sad because of the events, all italians and Danish were sent home straight away, due to this the hotel was quite bare, the adjacent hotel (the Baron) was totally empty.
This hotel is about the friendliest,cleanest and nicest hotel I have ever stayed in, from the cleaners to the manager it would take a lot to beat the kindness shown from everyone in this hotel. We had the unfortunate events of the bombings and the whole staff in this hotel tried to make the guests feel as safe as possible and I am sure they must have been worried about their own families. The manager takes time to speak to the guests and even sits in your company if he has time at night, it was my sons 17th birthday on our last day there and the waiters brought a cake with his name on it to the dining room at lunch time and sang happy birthday and the manager sent a present to the dining room from all the staff of the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to young or old and when I go back to Egypt this hotel will definately be our first choice. We also paid the extra for the sea view and it was well worth it.
stayed at the conrad and had a lovely week , place very clean and staff try hard to please ,just gone all inclusive ,and is still experimenting ,much to the dismay of the first choice guests,which we were.Bar closes at 11.00 oclock and any drinks after that are charged for ,they close bang on the dot,no leniency,no brand drinks ,all local ,not so good if you are not sweet toothed. Beer ok .a bit fizzy.The entertainment was not good either, a couple of singers who are really bad.We went into namma bay ,shopping and to drink on the shuttle bus ,which is only free at 11.00 in the morning,other times you pay.,brochure says free.
Just returned from the Conrad. We had booked a premium room overlooking the beach and beautiful clear blue sea. I seroiusly recommend paying a bit extra for theses rooms, sitting out in the morning with a coffee watching the views was the best part of the holiday.
