Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh Resort

Once I avoid being stranded in St. Catherine, as busses are not running there as frequently due to recent events, I make it to Na’ama Bay in the south of the Sinai peninsula. I am overwhelmed with tourists and taxi drivers in the downtown area, this is definitely a tourist haven. I only want to get to my Hyatt hotel on the beach and relax …
Well this will be our last update from Egypt. After we get pictures developed and scanned, we will post them here and add a bunch of information useful to folks who are planning a trip like this. Since our last entry, we have successfully traversed the "sun & surf" portion of the trip. We spent the night of September 1 free at the Hyatt Regency …
So ok, one of the deals with my job is that I travel from Los Angeles, to Sacramento (California's State Capitol) on a regular basis. In Sacramento, there is only one business hotel in walking distance from the State Capitol Building. This hotel happens to be a Hyatt. When I first starting staying there, I enrolled in the Hyatt Gold Passport …
... 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.
... could have parted. And they've found chariot wheels in this area. The sea here is at least 10 miles wide. That crossing must have been an unimaginable experience.
After a couple hours' drive we arrive at our hotel, the Hilton Taba, which is right on the border of Egypt and Israel. It was built when the Sinai was under Israeli control, but is now in Egypt. It's a beautiful hotel and our room has the most amazing view of the Red Sea. It's peaceful and calm ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
Excellent Regency Club
I concur with all the positive comments here and would also say that the Regency Club upgrade was well worth it with impeccable service from excellent staff.
A first class hotel.
Both me and my partner stayed at the Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheik from 26th September 2004 for 14 nights. We did try to stay at the Four Seasons Resort in Sharm but because of lack of availability, the Hyatt Regency was recommended to us. We stayed in a superior room on a B&B basis, the cost of which was approximately £2,300.00. The hotel was kept exceptionally clean and the staff were also polite and very helpful. The cost of a bottle of wine was very expensive but beer and soft drinks were in line with UK prices.
Top notch hotel
Everything I'd read about the Hyatt Regency before I went was extremely positive. I'm glad to say that my experiences matched everyone else's. The hotel is well laid out, with good food, attentive staff (sometimes a little too attentive) and excellent snorkelling and diving from its own reef. The dive outfit onsite is part of a larger concern based in Sharm and seemed well run, though we had some problems with our equipment which was rather unsettling. They also run a car service that will take you into Sharm El Sheikh centre, if you fancy going out in the evening. This is about four times the price of an ordinary cab but a rather less hair-raising experience!
Having read some of the reviews prior to leaving, I promised myself that I would write my own review when I returned.
Just returned from the Hyatt Regency at Sharm staying in a Regency Club room.
Stayed for one week at the Hyatt Regency in September 2004. Cannot recommend the hotel enough.
Superb Hotel, wonderful time !
Wonderful Hotel, very clean, great staff, totally 5* resort. We spent one week in March 2004 here and had a fantastic time. Weather superb, food / drinks great, wine a little too pricey to get carried away.
Swam off the beach jetty with wild dolphin on two seperate afternoons, made the trip complete.
Would recommend visit to anyone, families, young or old. Cant wait to return.
Absolutely fabulous hotel. Rooms were great and had a fantastic view of the sea. However, you can hear your neighbours through the connecting doors - and even smell them if they are heavy smokers!! The staff was very helpful and polite. Wonderful beach and the best snorkelling place right in front of the hotel. Restaurants at the hotel have a marvellous view and the breakfast buffet was super. The thai restaurant is a must - reservation required.
Red Sea Heaven
Excellent hotel with wonderful coral reef adjacent to beach with pontoon access. We saw all manner of exotic sea life. Rooms of high quality with decent size bathrooms with tub and separate shower. Good service and excellent buffet breakfast. Restaurants fine though wines heavily overpriced. Really well designed layered pool area with slides, waterfalls and jacuzzis. Good health club. Easy access to nearby resort which was very interesting though we were always pleased to get back to the luxurious calm of the Hyatt. Will certainly return!
BEST HOTEL EVER !
This hotel is fantastic - pure luxury ! Great rooms, excellent staff, wonderful food - can't fault it. We've done a fair amount of travelling, and this is one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. It is absolutely spectacular.
