... with the usual bunch of insomnia masochists. We attended 3 lectures this morning. The first was by the aviation lecturer Ian Smith on Aden and South Arabia. He had worked in the area as a flight engineer in the years preceding the British withdrawal in 1967 and was able to show us photographs taken at that time of some of the places we had visited. Of particular interest was Dubai where 40 years ago there was very little. The British left Aden after what some describe as the ...
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 ...
... however, generally lifts my spirits, and thankfully there's plenty of it at the huge breakfast buffet at the hotel. I'm thankful for a full belly as we begin our drive northward across the Sinai peninsula. What a barren, treacherous terrain. No wonder the Israelites, whilst wandering in this area, said, "hey, Moses. You know, life as pharaoh's slaves really isn't so bad. Whaddya say we head back?"
In my current mood, I'm ready to head back to the greenery ...

... and jellyfish, and many different types at that. None with the long tenacles but odd shapes just laying on the bottom of the ocean floor, eyes looking right up at us. It was magical to have this experience, however, I think my dive days are behind me now. The breathing was more difficult than years past and my confidence level was a bit less maybe becauase it was a one hour dive. Longer than I was used to, so once back on the surface was glad to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Sharm El Sheikh Fayrouz Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
This is the second easter we've spent at the fayrouz and it never disappoints us. The rooms are clean and spacious with the cleaners making elaborate designs out of the towels and sprinkling petals on the bed. Its in the best location as restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance. There are 2 pools which can be quite quiet but sometimes there are a few dedicated people who will get up early to bag the best sunbeds. Sometimes the staff will remove towels if there is no-one lying on the beds.
Stayed Easter 2005 and couldn't have asked for more from this hotel and its wonderful staff. Nothing was too much trouble.
Definately the best Hilton in Naama Bay
Great hotel. Have stayed at Hilton dreams and Rosetta in Naama before and promised we would stay here the next time as it looked so nice. It didn't disapoint.
Rooms - excellent, have everything you need. We even got a free paper each day. Also set in nice gardens, so quiet on a night.
Hotel has large beach area, and several pools - 2 of which are heated.
Food and drink - Excellent breakfast, didn't eat there on a night as Naama is only 5 mins walk along the promenade. Pirate bar is a good place to visit after a days scuba diving.
The best thing about this hotel however is it's location, as its very handy for Naama, on the beach side on Peace road, and also close to Emperor divers.
We have just returned from a week here. The hotel is well situated in the middle of the bay, with good snorkelling off its beach. All the staff are friendly and charming, good rooms well spread about in the extensive pretty gardens. Lots of alternative restuarants within walking distance and a large shopping centre, for those who want it!
The best hotel in town. On the best side of the road, near the beach. Don't stay in a hotel on the 'wrong' side of the road, which says you have to cross the road to get the the beach ... it is like a dual carriageway and you will take your life in your hands every time you cross to go to the beach or the town. From our hotel it was a three minute walk into town, turn right at the promenade, and then right again when you see roads with shops . lovely bars, some non alcoholic though, people puffing on pipes of 'waccy baccy' which my husband tried, it turned out to be apple flavour .. like ribena and only 80p. Everything is so cheap, take plenty of small English coins like 20p and 50p ..and you must haggle when you buy souveniers. Only leave a tip when it is not already down on the menu.
Just got back from a week in sharm staying at the Hilton Fayrouz. I did some research before booking and im pleased to say it was the right choice in terms of location standard and friendlyness of staff. The hotel is set on its own grounds with several swimming pools some heated some sooo... not! but i imagine in the summer months it would be a blessed relief. The benefit of this hotel is that it has its own beach, is adjacent to the promonade and is a short walk away from nama bay proper so you have the best of both worlds.
I have just got back from spending a week at the Hilton Fayrouz and it was absolutely superb. The hotel is fantastic, we had our own chalet comprising of a lounge area with sofabed and dining table, seperate bedroom and bathroom with a bath. The room was fantastic and the standard of cleanliness was top draw. The housekeeping was also excellent, with the bed decorated with fresh flowers every day and the duvet folded into elaborate decorative shapes (We even had our duvet folded into a swan).
The hilton fayrouz is a truly wonderful hotel. The pictures in the brochures do not do it justice!! The accomodation is lovely, well decorated, spacious and with everything you need. We stayed in a one story chalet that overlooked gardens, but I believe there is two story accomodation near the pools. The rooms are impeccably clean and the room boys will decorate the beds with flowers daily which is a lovely touch. You can have 2 sets of clean towels a day if you wish and room service is available until midnight. The facilities are excellent, lots of pools, bars and restaurants. The location couldn't be any better and the service is fabulous. Towels are available for near the pool and on the beach. The Fayrouz has the largest stretch of beach, which means your not sitting on your neighbours lap. Security patrol the beach and hotel regulary which is more reassuring than annoying. After staying for a week I couldn't think of anything I didn't like! I would fully recommend this hotel and if I go back to Naama bay I would definetly stay here. Enjoy!!
Last February, 2004, we spent 4 days in marvellous Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. Sharm El Sheikh is a resort area in Sinai Peninsula, and it's on the tip of the peninsula overlooking the Red Sea (probably the best diving place in the world).
Just got back from the Hilton Fayrouz and didn't want to come back. This hotel was recommended to me and quite rightly so. This has to be the best location if you want all that Nama Bay has to offer. A short walk to resturants, bars, shops and right on a beautiful Beach. The hotel was brilliant we were realy looked after by all the staff. The pool areas were very nice and, the rooms are bungalow style and were very spacious. This hotel would be good for couples, families, and small groups alike. We did collect other holidaymakers from the other two Hilton hotels and although they were pleased with their hotels in Sharm they were not quite so central to the resort amenities.
I can not fault this hotel and can not wait to return.
