All Seasons Badawia Sharm Resort
Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
... 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.
... built resorts along the shore, but no tourists to fill them on account of the terrorists.
I think I've used the word terrorist enough in this blog that the NSA is probably reading along. So hi guys! Thanks for all you do to protect our country!
We drive past the area where Moses and the Israelites probably crossed the Red Sea from the Sinai to what is now Saudi Arabia. There's a shallow strip that connects the two sides, so it's conceivable this is where ...
... of the afternoon I took a taxi into town. The wifi at the hotel still wasn't working and I really needed to check a few things out (and let people know I was still alive). The taxi dropped me off in Naama Bay, Sharm's lively tourist centre. At least, that's what it is known as. When I arrived however, things were pretty quiet. Must be the time of day, I thought. I found an internet cafe in a mall with the help of a security guard, and spent an hour or so ...
... at another resort when a tiger shark was spotted in the area where people were swimming. Ahmed saved the day by quickly evacuating the people to the shore. That evening I was completely relaxed. The real holiday feeling was settling in now. I had some bread and babaganough for dinner and a cup of tea in the bedouin tent with a view of the beach. It was hard to believe I was leaving this peaceful place already ...
... and to foreigners, it is called Gate of God and this way is to help cater to both. The gate is a few towering rocks that make up a gate. It is clear the rocks were somewhat carved at some point, but it still made for a good entry way into the park. From here, we did a snorkel trip that took about an hour. It was roughly the same kind of fish we saw yesterday near Tiran ...

Historical Traveler Reviews All Seasons Badawia Sharm Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
Booked a last minute deal, after reading reviews and checking out the web site sounded like a nice place to spend a week just before Christmas, we wanted all inclusive, which we have booked before in Sharm. We arrived around 6pm Egyptian time after a reasonable flight on Thomson, although no leg room this is to be expected on these flights. We were greeted by the friendly reception staff and once in the hotel we were were pleasantly surprised from the outside it does not inspire. Informed dinner 7-10pm, so had time for a quick shower. Room was small but adequate, although beds were hard, covered in one very thin sheet with an old blanket which had seen better days and then a bed spread on top. Room supposed to have A/C but did not work properly, for either heat or cold. Fridge very efficent. There was plenty of hot water, absolute blessing. TV adequate but only 3 english channels and very repetative. Room got very dusty over the week, mirrors and surfaces covered all the time.
We spent a week at the Badawai which we found on the "on the beach" website as an all inclusive deal to sharm.
If you are looking for a holiday in Sharm, then you should try to stay here.
After reading some reviews about this hotel we were a bit worried about what the hotel was going to be like, i can certainly say we were pleasently surprised when we arrived. We booked very last minute and just wanted a cheap weeks holiday all inclusive to relax. The hotel staff are very friendly and are very helpful. The hotel is extremley clean and i didn't see one bug while we were there!
What a Surprise we got!!! Badawia Was Great!!!
Having not seem much reviews on this resort we were a bit dubious about it - but what a surprise!!
The resort was very clean and tidy. The pool area was great as was the pool bar!!
Nothing was a problem for any of the staff who were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and tidy and all close to the pool area. As only 100 people maximum can stay there it was never 'overcrowded'.
The food was good and we never got any dodgy stomach aches. The room service was great also.
All in all this resort was first class.
One slight disadvantage was the resort was slightly out of the way - but you can go anywhere by taxi .
We went here in August on our Honeymoon, we booked because it was cheap and affordable and for All Inclusive you can't go wrong.
We booked the Badawia as part of a last minute deal with teletext on a fully inclusive deal.
We recently booked a holiday to creative badawia. We only stopped two nights and got moved to another hotel because it was so bad.
We where looking forward to our first holiday in Egypt but couldn't find a review on the Creative Badawia Hotel anywhere.
just got back from egypt stayed at the hauza beach resort, but last july me and my husband stayed at the badwia lovely hotel staff very nice nothing to much trouble for them , the pool is lovely but there is no on site beach, if you have children they might get a little bored as ther isnt anything for them to do,we went on loads of trips including quad biking that was great fun.
