... 8220;one of the underwater wonders of the world.” The contrast of environments here above and below the surface could not be more striking – onshore there is literally only sand and rock, while underwater there is a non-stop festival of colors.
Turns out that becoming certified only means that you learn how to assemble your equipment and how to go under water, but you don’t learn how to dive. People only become great divers through experience and people ...
... did a few extra activities. One afternoon they hired quad bikes and sand buggies and rode into the sand dunes. Ricky drove in the sand buggy most of the way with Tom as the navigator. Lots of fun.
The boys also went on a scuba diving trip into the Red Sea. Ricky snorkelled while the bigger boys scuba dived. Tom had his first experience scuba diving and absolutely loved it. The briefing involved a ...
... the restaurants sell fresh fish so we order some. The fish comes out grill with Egyptians spices and it's delicious. I can get use to eating fresh fish from the red sea, it's amazing. We have a big day of diving tomorrow so we muster up all the will power possible to avoid all the bars and clubs which are starting to fill up with people from all round the world. It's tempting but I want to strength an alertness considering I'm diving in shark invested ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Iberotel Grand Sharm Sharm El-Sheikh
My husband and I have just returned having spent a relaxing week at this hotel. We found a good deal on the interent and booked it straight away.
We have just returned from our first trip to egypt,having stayed at the grand sharm for one week.
An excellent hotel all round. Rooms spacious and up to the four star standard. Most rooms would have a great sea view. Grounds atractive and very well maintained. Even the heated pool is winter is warm as promised.
Desperate for some winter sun and relaxation myself and a friend booked for a weeks holiday at the Grand Sharm - and we were not to be disappointed. Having travelled the world I can easily say that this was the most beautiful hotel by far. The cleanliness and ammenities were outstanding but it was the staff that made our holiday. We ventured out of the hotel on an evening to Naama Bay which was quite a mission! The locals are desperate to get you in their shops which at times could be quite annoying. 2 places I would recommend to eat is Hard Rock Cafe and Pomederos - great value for money and menu to match. We also eat one night in the Old Market..mmm Not overly impressed DO NOT eat at Red Sea as we both fell ill to the pharoh's revenge! All in all though Egypt is an amazing place. The coral situated off the jetty of the hotel is some of the best ive seen (including the barrier reef) and is a definite must - along with the fresh fish served for lunch at the pool cafe. Could go on forever about this place - I hope you find this helpful as some of the other comments mentioned on this website (including those of the geordy couple who we met...HIYAAA) helped us make our descision. Wonderful, wonderful wonderful! say hello to Shisha George and Max behind the bar - great people! Have a wonderful time and perhaps see some of you next year as we are booking to go again!
We returned on Monday 16th January from a weeks holiday at the Iberotel Grand Sharm, and felt that we had to write a quick review, mostly because we based our choice on what other people had written.
I stayed at the Iberotel Grand Sharm during the first week of November. The hotel room (I think it was a superior double) was lovely and we had a nice view of the sea. I went B&B but tried the restaurant on the first night (pretty awful, reminded me of school dinners, but that's just my opinion). However the breakfast was really good - quite a lot of choice and I would recommend the omelettes. The service was attentive and not intrusive.
just got back from a 2 week stay at the grand sharm a great hotel very clean. Rooms lovely pool area very nice main pool was a bit cold but the small pool was heated but sea was very nice to swim in .Staff could not do enough for you going to book again for next year .
We had just returned from a week's holiday in sharm el sheik.
Having first visited this hotel in peak season(Sept 2004) we just had to return... we went back in Jan 2005. Staff are exceptional and so friendly.This hotel benefits from being very big but with only 242 Rooms,it is so uncluttered and perfect to chill out and re-charge your batteries. The sea and the coral just off the hotel jetty is quite unbelievable and there are so many fish, the reef is renowned off the hotel and you can see as much snorkelling as you can diving, the water is that clear!!
Beautiful beautiful hotel. Don't know where to begin! Location was perfect, courtesy bus (10 mins) into Naama Bay if you want something a bit more lively, although the hotel did have entertainment every night and a short walk is a fabulous place which has shows on every night and geat cheap food, everything from Pizza and chips to Lebanese and Egyptian fayre.
