Last night we left Aqaba sailing in a south easterly direction down the Gulf of Aqaba back towards the red sea. This morning when the sun eventually rose (it got up a long time after us this morning – especially Jo) the sun was on the starboard side indicating we were still sailing south.
About midday the sun was directly over the stern of the ship indicating we had turned northwards and are now sailing up the Gulf of Suez towards Suez and the canal which will take ...
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 ...
... or Cairo too. And it's no wonder the Israelites needed manna. All there is in this part of the world is rocks.
So we have armed military guards - eight of them, I think. One military vehicle is in front of us (to hit the land mines first?), and one is behind. I would be nervous, except that I like a little adventure, and our tour guide, Bruce Porter, is giving a really interesting lecture on Cain, Abel, and priesthood authority as we ...
... kind of ritual that involved placing our palms first on a particular carving, then over our hearts, three times. We have no idea what it meant, but since it ended with Hugh having to kiss me on both cheeks, it probably was good for our marriage! After an excellent lunch at a very fancy hotel, this time at 3:00, we visited the temple of Luxor. The two temples are about two miles apart, parallel to the Nile. They are currently in the process of uncovering the sphinx-lined ...
Home to the largest city in Africa and the Arab world and a thriving tourist resort, it's no wonder Egypt is said to have a promising economic future. So when I explored the ancient sights of Cairo, and Sharm el Sheikh's sassy scene, it was a shock to see the extent to which poverty had invaded these two scenic cities.

Historical Traveler Reviews Maritim Jolie Ville Resort & Casino Sharm El-Sheikh
Loved the hotel
I was impressed by the service , the professionalism in regards to the the hotel reservation system , the personnel and everything . the location is excellent as it is very close the the main shopping street . In fact one of the hotel doors is right on that street . We had regularly someone from the hotel checking if everything was OK and suggesting excursions , which we took 2 in a week . The food was excellent , with a very big variety .. I will definitly go back to that hotel and recomend it
Drilling for Water
Hotel was fine...
breakfast was great
other food was poor
Shame they decided to drill for water on the beach, we tried to escape to the Movenpick Golf resort for some peace but found they were doing exactly the same there
My partner and I are just back from two wonderful weeks at this marvellous hotel.
We stayed at this hotel in Naama Bay for 2 weeks this May. In general, the hotel was lovely - well presented & extremely clean, with friendly staff and a good atmosphere all round.
The location of the hotel was wonderful, directly on the beach and lovely in the evening for choice of places to eat, ambiance and lack of boisterous crowds. The rooms were great; we had two interconnecting doubles with an extra bed in one (3 children). There must be height restrictions as all the hotels in Naama Bay seem to have bungalow rooms with only a ground and first floor. The pool was lovely and the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The children loved the buffet breakfast which offered a vast choice, my 9 year old made great friends with the man whose job it was to make pancakes!
Sun & Fun in Sharm
My husband daughter and myself stayed at Movenpick in April 2005. We found the Hotel immaculate, the staff extremely friendly, and the service superb. We couldnt have asked for a better trip. I Highly recommend this hotel and it has 5 stars from us in every area.And the view was beautiful and the grounds well kept. I dont think I have ever stayed in any hotel that made us feel so welcomed. A must see for everyone. And the best snorkling place in the world. Not to mention the weather. I will be going back for sure to this Hotel in December.
Great Place to Stay
My wife and I stayed at the Movenpick Jollie Ville Resort and casino in Naama Bay in Mid January and again last week. The staff, accommodation and food was first class and highly recommended. We booked through Longwood Holidays the first time and all went brilliant from start to finish.
Their allocation was full when we tried to rebook so used Panarama Holdays for the second visit (not recommended) no rep at gatwick, three and a half hour delay and no information, no information from reps at Sharm airport and further delay on return flight.
However the Movenpick Hotel is one of the best we have stayed in and all the staff were superb, we have travelled to most places in the world and highly recommend the Movenpick Hotel group.
We stayed here with our 12 year old son in February half term. Had to change rooms after the first night as we backed onto the street by the shopping area which is open to the early hours so was very noisy. Subsequent room looked like it had been rennovated fairly recently, the previous room was a little shabby. If you want to be close to all the amenities you do need location in the main area of the hotel where the facilities are excellent. Varied restaurants and excellent pool. Activities centre was also very good and we booked a couple of excursions through them which were cheaper than with our tour operator. My son and husband did diving with Subex who are right on the beach by the hotel. They were very professional and the best diving company my husband has used. You can dive straight from the beach as there are several coral reefs in the bay. We can also hire boats and wetsuits from the hotel. In February you really do need a wetsuit to snorkel as the water was quite cold - only £5 to hire for the whole day which made snorkelling the pleasure it should be!. We are planning to return again next year. Would also recommend the tour to St Catherines which was an excellent day out.
We have just returned from a two week holiday at the Jollie Ville Movenpick in Naama Bay. The hotel was excellent, accomodation superb, we were in a suite which was very spacious and kept immaculatelly clean by the cleaning staff. The hotel is well spread out in beautiful gardens and must have the best and biggest swimming pool in the resort. We were bed and breakfast and the buffet breakfast was superb. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly. The poolside restuarant was excellent and we can recommend their steak sandwich. We had a meal at the hotel's French Restuarant, La Fleur which is on the prommenade and the service and quality of the food were first class. The hotel has it's own private beach in front of the hotel, with beach bar and restuarant, both excellent. The beach bar was very popular between 12 noon to 1 pm and 6 pm to 7 pm which were the happy hours - all drinks half price! This hotel is ideally located as it is one of the closest to the shops, bars and restuarants- a couple of minutes walk! We had a lovely holiday, it was really hot during the day but got cooler at night so you needed warmer clothes at night to sit outside the bars. It is a very clean resort. We had a very relaxed holiday. If you go to Naama Bay and do not stay at this hotel you must try movenpick ice cream!
