... between them. Shortly after this the Rwandan civil war between the Hutus and the Tutsis began and Professor Mann had to escape. At one stage he had to hide behind a bush for a week with only chewed vegetation for nutrition. Eventually he met two American journalists who took him by car to
the airport. On the way they survived a burst of fire, close range, from an AK47 which injured all three of them. All this was before lunch which we had in the Britannia Restaurant. Jo then ...
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 ...
... offering massages, haircuts, pedicures, and brow waxing. One guy actually starts ripping out Bruce's eyebrows, promising to make Bruce "more beautiful." We figure the only place to hide from these guys is underwater, so we head to the little dive shop, take a quick refresher course, and go SCUBA diving. And wow! The fish and coral in the Red Sea come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors. And they're all beautiful!
After our dive, we lounge on the beach with ...
Three days, three places, three cultures. Whew! Monday morning we docked at Aqaba, Jordan's only seaport. Four countries meet in this area: Jordan, Israel, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. Eilat, Israel, was maybe three miles from our berth. Our two hour bus ride took us up through the desert mountains where we occasionally saw farmers trying to eke out a crop from rocky, sandy soil. But mostly it was just barren mountains with dramatic black veins running through them. Upon arrival at ...

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.
