We took the taxi(or limo) to Na'ama Bay. The limo service dropped us off at a "friends" store so that we could have a place to call when we wanted to go back to the ship. Of course, they wanted us to spend our money at the store on knock-off t-shirts of the Hard Rock Cafe, or oils/perfumes , or whatever. We did ...
... is it safe, it's delicious! The shopkeeper makes a cup for me and we chat in English. When a Russian lady walks in, he chats with her in what sounds to me like fluent Russian. These vendors and shopkeepers really are impressive linguists.
When it's time for bed, I'm ready for sleep and hoping for a softer mattress. But I'm also sad that our Egyptian adventure is ending. What a beautiful country filled with beautiful people. I hope to come back some day. Now on to ...
Originally I was supposed to leave for Aqaba in Jordan the next morning. But after having such a nice massage by Ahmed "the Shark"? The relaxing evening by the beach and the spectacular diving, leaving did not seem like the obvious choice. The holiday feeling had only just kicked in. So I stayed. As it turns out, I stayed for two more days. I had a wonderfully lazy day at the beach, snorkelling, swimming and reading. I even joined a yoga class in the morning. At ...
... is a good thing or not??
Anyway we decided to go for a few more drinks and a couple of games of pool after dinner which was quite cool. But unfortunately it wasn't Gary's night, he was off form and I didn't have enough fire power to carry the team. We came away with a few wins in the end so it was all good.
Time to pack our bags and hit the pillow as we want to get away earlyish tomorrow and head to Cairo.

Historical Traveler Reviews Xperience Kiroseiz Parkland Sharm El-Sheikh
We booked to stay at the Three Corners as a last minute thing...didnt even plan on going to egypt...but we absolutely loved it...so much so that we have already booked to go back to the same resort in september!!!
We chose this hotel as our first A.I holiday and we found it to be a really nice relaxed holiday during the day. Brilliant pool,nice people,very clean area,nice meals. Then come the evening, what a transformation. One of the bar staff(Maradonna Lookalike) went out of his way to basically spoil peoples nights with his really stinking attitude and slamming drinks down on the counter.He practically refused to serve drinks to kids.The first week we were there we got half full pints of beer and you seemed to be running to the bar all the time.They refused to refill Krafts of wine so if like us you had 6 to 7 people drinking wine the krafts were emptying quickly.Come the second week they took the pint glasses away and also the krafts.The First choice Rep was inundated with complaints about the staff and their attitude. We had the worst pop idol failures as our entertaiment on the evening.We had the same songs practically every night and it was getting a bit tedios.
Great week in sharm....

Myself and my husband have just got back from Kiroseiz and had a wonderful holiday! The hotel was lovely and very clean. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough to help you. We had never gone All Inclusive before but found that it was great - we hardly spent any cash in the hotel (except for in their gift shops!). you had to pay extra for ice cream and freshly squeezed fruit juice if u wanted them - but that was because the ingredients to make them are so scarce in Egypt.
My partner and I have recently come back from staying at the Kiroseiz-Three Corners Resort. We came back one week ago. On the plane over from the UK we were given cards to fill out so when you got to Sharm el Sheikh this will have to be shown (with your passports) to get your visa which will cost about £15 per person. We landed at the airport and was told that it was a military airport so bags will go through x-ray machines quite often and this applies to if you go on any trips also. Tipping is very much a way of life in Eygpt and apperantly they all tip each other and tourists are expected to do the same. Your Reps are not allowed into the airport but you will have an eygiptian company (who are called Travco) that work alongside the english companies and the company that you will be travelling with, their Rep will be outside the airport waiting for you with their coaches to take you to your accommodation.
Fantastic Venue the Food was Great
I have just come back from Sharm El Sheik and stayed at the 3 three corners - kiroseiz - The food was great I had no problems what so ever. The weather was hot and the British were doing the typical drinking beer in the sun and becoming ill from it and blaming the food. My partner asked for a tour of the kitchens and he is a catering consultant and found the kitchens to be 5 star.
The staff were very friendly, however the thomson rep just couldn't be bothered.
Please take care in the sun as it is very unforgiving on the bits you miss with the sun cream, I usually take a factor 8 but I wore factor 20 all holiday.
the week we spent at this hotel was very good. neither of us had any
We have just returned from Sharm having had a great holiday. The three corners hotel boasts excellent accommodation and grounds. The complex has 2 swimming pools (one of which has 3 whirlpools which were out of action!) and a great beach resort. (You get to the beach via shuttle bus which takes about 20 mins. There is a restaurant and bar at the beach which are okay, and the beach is very, very small so get there early if you want a space!) The food however is awful. There are about 8 hot (they should be hot but are actually very cold!) choices including rice, vegetables, potatoes (which are always undercooked) and 2 different meat and 1 fish dish. The salads are mostly made up of pickled vegetables and the leftover veg from the night/lunch before. There are hidden costs to the all inclusive, ie; you have to pay £1.50 for freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast, you pay for ice creams, there are only 2 alcoholic cocktails available for all inclusive (even though they have a menu with several others listed at roughly £3 each!). REMEMBER to check the form they give you telling you what is all inclusive and what isn't!! The waiters are all very helpful as are the reception staff. There is a company in the hotel foyer called sharmania. We booked an excursion (£40) but could not go as I spent the day in bed with sickness and diarrhoea. However, they did not refund the money for this trip - we just had to lose it! So be aware if you book trips that you could lose your money as the stomach ache just hits you thick and fast and without warning!!! The rooms themselves are excellent. There is a fridge and safety deposit box in the room which you don't have to pay for like in other resorts. Satellite TV has about 6 or 7 english speaking channels including 2 movie channels and BBC world news.
Visited the Kiroseiz Three Corners Resort on 28th April for 2 weeks.
I've read a few bad reviews about the Kiroseiz hotel so i just wanted to set the record straight. The hotel cleanliness was second to none, the bar service was great and so was the pool area and spacious rooms. We were a bit aprehensive the first night as we wasn't sure how the all inclusive worked as not everything is actually all inclusive, but we found we didnt need to spend a penny in the hotel as we were happy with the all inclusive food and drink. The waiters are very friendly and can't do enough to help you.
