Sensatori Sharm El-Sheikh by Coral Sea
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 ...
... from the UK. When we returned to the "public" beach we found that it cost $2 Euro each to use the 30 foot wide access to the beach....with only about that much space at the beach front. Other beachs cost closer to $12 Euro each...so we did like our find.
There were two little Egyptian boys playing and we got a kick out of them and their families.
... could have parted. And they've found chariot wheels in this area. The sea here is at least 10 miles wide. That crossing must have been an unimaginable experience.
After a couple hours' drive we arrive at our hotel, the Hilton Taba, which is right on the border of Egypt and Israel. It was built when the Sinai was under Israeli control, but is now in Egypt. It's a beautiful hotel and our room has the most amazing view of the Red Sea. It's peaceful and calm ...
... I came out I decided to find a cafe and maybe have a bite to eat afterwards. At Aladdin I had a drink and made some use of the wifi there. It was still really quiet everywhere. In fact, I was Aladdin's only customer. Even when I left, some 1.5 hours later, no other people had come to join me on the colourful cushions under the many star shaped lights. I ended up having dinner at the hotel. It really wasn't so appealing to eat by myself in one of the ...
... I think the corals were a bit better here. The next stop was a tree that is supposed to turn the salt water into fresh water. This was not so impressive and I ddin’t totally understand this, but it is one of the only trees in the world that grows in salt water. Supposedly you can taste the salt in its leaves. We saw a river canyon that was formed by earthquakes almost ...

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.
