Resort Relaxation

A travel blog entry by shaanandkate

Our time in Sharm was glorious. Yes, it was typical European resort tourism... but after our experiences of dirty hostels, heckling men, and [my] vomiting while traveling to incredible historic sights, we were ready for some resort relaxation.

We stayed at the Grand Rotana, because it was one of the best values out there (comparatively …

... so I guess we disappointed them.
We wondered the length of the beach looking for the "public" beach area. On the way, we found a sign for "Happy Hour" from noon to 1pm. After more wandering we found the "public" beach. But by that time it was noon....so we went back to our first find - HAPPY Hour - and had some Egyptian beers with some ...

Hibiscus Tea on the Red Sea

... travelers and enjoy getting to know them better. We are travelling with some amazing people, and I will always be grateful for the blessing of meeting these new friends.

We get cleaned up and head to dinner (which includes the yummiest hand-made pita/tortilla things), and then hit the shops next to our hotel. One shopkeeper offers a free cup of hibiscus tea (an Egyptian specialty). My friend Carrie had already tried it and hadn't died, so I figure it's safe. ...

When the Holiday Feeling Kicks In

... 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 ...

We stayed at the Marriot Hotel. Our Hotel was on the mountainside and the better half was on the beach side. Crossing to the beach meant a 5 minute walk over a busy highway with traffic police slowing down the traffic to allow tourists to cross.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Rotana Resort & Spa Sharm El-Sheikh

    Best Hotel Ever

    from

    Have just come back from grand rotana. We were very unsure about going to Egypt but can't rate it highly enough. Have stayed in lots of hotels but have to say this one was amazing. Staff could not do enough for you. The hotel is new and very clean in a lovely setting a few minutes out from namma bay. The food was wonderful in all resturants with a nice selection of resturants. We brought two children with us and found them to be very child frendly. The swimming pool was huge with plenty of space for sunloungers around to be nice and spread out. Can not fault the hotel in any way. Would love to go back. Highly recommended.**

    Fantastic, relaxing, highly recommended

    from

    We stayed there for a week and had the most relaxing time. The room was very clean, the staff were very attentive and friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The pool is huge with a swim up bar and special childrens areas. The beach area is beautifully landscaped with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas, it's perfect! You can snorkel off a jetty, and the waiters on the beach are ready to bring you a drink whenever you want it. It's heaven!

    Great New Hotel

    from

    Just spent a week here and couldn't fault it at all in general. Execellent rooms, location and staff could not do enough to help. As this hotel is new it is very quiet but for me that was an added bonus. Not all facilities are fully open Spa and another new restaurant about to open. One critiscism is the choice of food limited, quality have had better and would expect better for a 5 star deluxe hotel also the cost is expensive in comparrison to restaurants in Namma Bay (Close enough to get to and far enough away to feel secluded) I only hope this hotel goes from strength to strength and I hope to return one day!

    Wow!

    from

    We stayed here at the end of Jan and it was a very amazing experience. The room was excellent with a king size bed and tastefully decorated. The entrance is a sight to see at night with the hundreds of palm trees all lit up it looked fantastic. The resort is absolutely huge and it took a ride on the hotel buggy to see the whole resort. Staff were very friendly and the General Manager was always at hand to sort out any problem (not that i had many) even if small. Food was good and vegetarians were well catered for. The Jacuzzi was nice and warm and you could just sit there for hours overlooking the sea and having a cocktail or ten.....

    Fun in the sun (but couldn't dip a toe in the pool)

    from

    We spent a package holiday week here and have to say we were impressed. The most outstanding thing about the hotel is its setting; the private solitude felt sitting on the rocks just above the water was mesmirising. Most of the other hotels look out on other monstrosities of hotels. The hundreds of palm trees also make for a more tropical landscape which in a desert, is very refreshing. Rooms are lovely; simple and stylish with bathrooms to match. The hotel design and architecture are outstanding for such a vast hotel. In complete contrast to the rooms, the interior of the lobby (hideous plastic sofas in primary colours) and communal areas is not on par; which is fine if you're not a hotel snob! Breakfast was to an excellent standard; especially the Egyptian breakfast and as a vegetarian, the staff were very accommodating, and even made me some Egyptian dishes that I'd wanted to try. Some of the meal prices were extortionate though. A lobster would set you back £55 which I cannot get my head round since that particular beach restaurant was seconds from the water. Stick to chips (£1.50, enough for 2). The pool is stunning but we couldn't go in as it was ice cold. There was however a heated pool for children and a heated infinity pool from which the views are stunning. Snorkelling from the jetty was fantastic despite the water temperature. The shuttle to Naama Bay was well organised and always prompt. The staff were all friendly and helpful (especially the restaurant staff) although the reception staff were inflexible. All in all a beauftiful hotel, well designed for pure relaxation.

    Great hotel, great staff, great holiday

    We spent Christmas and New Year at the Grand Rotana, and overall had a fantastic time.

    Nightmare at Grandl Rotana Resort and Spa

    from

    We did NOT have a 5 star experience here. When our room had multiple problems,they moved us to another room then the troubles really began.

    Stunning Hotel!

    from

    We have just arrived back from a 2 week stay at the Grand Rotana. To say that the hotel is stunning is an understatement. This is true 5* luxury. Staff cannot do enough for you and are genuinely very friendly and approachable.

    Fantastic Week In True 5 Star Luxury!

    Visited Sharm for the Diving in Nov '05. Agent we travelled with 'key2', has a deal with the Camel Dive Centre (A fantastic company to dive with) which means you get 15% off the price of your dives/courses.

    One night in Heaven

    from

    Had an un scheduled night at this hotel on the back of a delayed flight and can only speak as you find Stunning!.A new hotel from all accounts and the style can only be described as class.Like being in a modern Egyptian Palace.The two meals we had were excellent and it looked as if the locals had a British Head chef in charge.The room was not large but very tasteful in design it seemed a lot of thought had gone into the whole complex .After only one night we would definately look for this as our first option if we decide on Sharm again.

    PS i was in a good mood having found out Villa had beaten Bham the previous week.
