    Historical Traveler Reviews Iberotel Palace Sharm El-Sheikh

    What a great place!!!!!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    Great Hotel, quiet location, friendly staff

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Good service, nice hotel

    from

    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.

    Have a nice stay at this nice hotel!

    Happy new year

    from

    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

    Elegant Hotel, excellent snorkelling...

    from

    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.

    The beach is excellent, spacious, clean and never lacking in sunbeds. The hotel boat also runs short trips over the bay to a brilliant coral reef that is ideal for snorkelling. The gardens are also very pleasant, as are the outdoor pools. The rooms are also spacious, well-appointed, and well decorated and designed. They are also spotlessly clean.

    Some of the restaurants promised in the publicity materials were not always open, but the standard buffet restaurant was very good. The food was plentiful, fresh and varied and the service was very quick, efficient and friendly (without being overbearing). All in all, it is difficult to fault this hotel for the basics.

    However, the added bonus were the location and the trips. The trip to St. Catherine's Monastery, and the journey into the Sinai desert and up the Red Sea Coast were fantastic - well worth the time and money. In addition, the Palace's location by the side of the working town of Sharm el Sheikh itself conveys a clear sense of everyday, ordinary Egypt rather than the sanitised and touristy area of Narma Bay. Stocked with plenty of tourist-oriented shops, the town is accessible and easily walkable and provides a flavour of Egypt that Narma Bay simply doesn't. If you want an excellent, medium-sized hotel rather than the strip of mega hotels that jostle around the narrow promenade in Narma, the Palace is your place.

    Not a PALACE! (Mr. Hansruedi Frutiger: need more work!)

    from

    Iberotel PALACE Sharm (director Mr. Hansruedi Frutiger):

    - it's a "5 star" hotel: i give 3 star to this hotel

    - much smile and "how are you?" but very slow services: i'm waiting now again for my roomservice. For 2 espresso on the bar: 40 minute! You have your beverages on the end of your meal! really slow service

    - too much smile on your girl or wives from service people, too honey honey!

    - food: like a fabric kantine, everytime the same: rice and chicken. Don't try to take pasta, terrible!

    - on the reception toillette: cockroachs!

    - my fly was posticipate: no room for the waiting time(5 hours)!

    CONCLUSION:

    - sharm el sheikh is great! go snorkling! very great!

    - Palace hotel: not to compare to 5 star on Europe, i give only 3 star! it's on reality a 3 STAR hotel with a 5 star Price!

    - Mr. director Hansruedi Frutiger: are you blind in your hotel!

    The reason I love Sharm el-Sheikh so much is it's a holiday mecca! The place - a gorgeous sea view beach setting - has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Yes it's nice to see the locals and culture on holidays, but here you don't experience the down sides of this. From clubbing to quading in the desert, diving to fine food, this place has everything for an enjoyable ...

    ... did not disappoint, the majority of the clientele and staff are British. I have eavesdropped on conversations about tea, biscuits, crumpets, mussels (??) and worcestershire sauce. One of the divemasters speaks impeccable queens English (she's actually welsh) such that the dive briefings sound like they're from the BBC (or Harry potter, take your pick). The downside is they want you to do some of the heavy lifting associated with your gear, Asian dive centers normally handle ...

    By the time we hit the airport we had been on the go for 17 hours. It was nearly midnight. We hadn't killed each other yet so all good. The no whinge policy was working well. Coffee and muffins a for a light snack before boarding and we almost felt ready to go again apart from the fact that our eyes were nearly closed and our legs didn't want to ...
