Historical Traveler Reviews Iberotel Palace Sharm El-Sheikh
What a great place!!!!!
We loved every minute at the Iberotel Palace! The service is great, the ammenities are superb and the people are so friendly and cannot do enough for you, even the security guard had a joke around with us!
The only thing i will advise is if you are keen on snorkelling go on a day trip as there are very little fish in the bay.
All in all we were very happy with our choice of hotel and from start to finish we can only speak highly of the Iberotel Palace.
Life at the palace
What a great hotel, staff are just fantastic and could not do enough for you. Hotel is not in Namma Bay so if you are looking for 'Blackpool in the sun', this hotel is not for you. We went All Inclusive and had a choice of all resturants in the hotel, all of which are good. Beach towels are provided clean each day and if with Thomson on a Platinum deal, you also get 30 min free internet access, laundry service, fruit and wine provided in room and mini bar topped up daily. I would highly recommend this hotel for couples rather than families. *****
Fantastic - Iberotel Palace
Me and my husband went to this hotel and it was pure luxury!! The staff were friendly, the hotel was spotless, food was of excellent quality and was very cheap. I understand Thompson are the only operator that now go there from the UK. This hotel is rated as 4 star - but I would say it should be a 5 star plus. I can't see how anyone could be dissapointed with this hotel.
Absoultely beutiful and mazing! Perfect honeymoon!
We arrived, it was amazing!
Fely really comfotable! Service as 150%
Eveyone was amzing! Couldnt of asked for better!

Great Hotel, quiet location, friendly staff
Just returned from a relaxing weeks holiday at the Iberotel Grand Sharm. Hotel is located a few kilometers outside Sharm but a free shuttle bus runs 3 times a day.
Hotel is situated right on the sea with two good sized pools and surrounded by lovely gardens.
The food, buffet for both breakfast & dinner, was fantastic with plenty of choice with the option to have some dishes cooked fresh (omlettes, fried eggs for breakfast / pasta, pizza's, fish for dinner).
Staff were very helpful & friendly. The only downside, if you want lively evening entertainment, is that the pub within the hotel was very quiet and the animation evening events poorly supported.
Would recommend the hotel for a quiet and relaxing vacation.
Nice Staff, and great snorkeling
Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Iberotel Palace. We really enjoyed our stay, and it was a relaxing ending to our 2 week visit to Egypt. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast buffet had a lot of variety, and was tasty. We also enjoyed the dinner buffet which changed themes every night.
We just returned from a 8 day stay at this hotel. We booked the Faro all inclusive formule. We had a very nice room ( big!) with swimmingpool view. Almost every day fresh flowers at the room and the boyroom / cleaningstaff make nice creations with the towels on the bed every day. Rooms were cleaned very good, every day. Everybody is very friendly. You don't see any woman working at the hotel. You don't see any Egypt women anyhow, not even outside the hotel, only men. We visited the old center, it's very small and it's just across the street. But ones was enough. I don't like it, because it's dirty and the shop-people keep on talking to you to visit their shop. It's really to pushy. We also visited Nama Bay, the larger and new center. A lot of tourists and many shops, but all the shops are the same. I didn't buy anything. Watch for your money. We went by taxi and while driving the door went open!! Luckely nobody felt out. Most of the taxi's have broken lights, doors etc. That seems to be very normal in Egypt. So watch out, ha ha. The wetter was very cold after 15.00u, ( in the morning the wetter was perfect) so at night you really have to wear a sweater of jacket, don't forget to bring it with you, you will need it! I think in summer, it 's nice to use one of the many lounge cafee's in the center. Now it was to cold. About the hotel: the breakfast was very good, many kinds of fresh bread etc., the lunch buffet was also not bad, but not 'special'. The evening buffet was good, but almost the same as the lunch buffet. The best thing about the hotel are the rooms, I think. And the lovely swimmingpool / beach. Even if you booked the Faro formule ( A.I.), you have to sign after every drink you order. Very strange, but oke.
Happy new year
brilliant holiday, diving from c fun divers based at hotel excellent coral fish etc out of this world. Hotel staff so friendly and nothing too much trouble so helpful. location perfect just booked to go back what more to say
We visited the Palace hotel in Sharm el Sheikh a few months ago and enjoyed it enormously. We found it a very comfortable, friendly and pleasant place and we would be delighted to stay there again.
