... and allowed to return to England. An agreement was reached that the young Iranian at the centre of the problem would not be treated. A similar episode was resolved in Colonel Ghadafi’s Libya when some hostages were taken there after the shooting of PC Yvonne Fletcher. The problem this time was that Libyans in the UK were being treated badly by the authorities following the shooting. A help line was set up in the UK so that Libyans could have their grievances ...
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 ...
... 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 ...
... had a sign up indicating the prices to each destination like they were set in stone. Normally this would appeal to me, but I wasn't going to pay 12 euros for a 5 minute taxi ride. After a few attempts it became clear that they were also all in cohoots with each other and I couldn't get them to go below 100 EGP. I was getting tired and frustrated and still wearing the backpack, which according to its last weigh-in had gained two kilos with the ...

Despite it being down season in Sharm
(like 49C) the plane is packed. Not a single empty seat, and I have
been reserved an aisle. I stand there staring at the lady. Huh?
Repeat? I don’t think you understand. I have flown around 50 times,

Historical Traveler Reviews Mexicana Sharm Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
Aesthetically the Hotel is great. Nice pools and good value rooms - shame about the incompetency of the reception in checking in, checking out and dealing with the inevitable issues for t he duration of the stay.
Great hotel lovely staff
me and my wife just returned from a one week stay b&b at the mexicana on the 16th january. the hotel rooms and staff were great especially our new egyptian friends islam and aymar already booked up again for march with the kids so cant wait well recomended they also have two lovely beaches the mexicana beach is great to laze about on the other diamond beach is great for snorkling so have a great stay.
Just got back last night Jan 15 and am on the net looking to go back again. The hotel, food, people and resort was excellent. Rooms are clean and big. A must do is the Jeep safari for £40. A tip is to take english money and change it over there for a better exchange rate.
Great Journey , Great People
Many talked about the rooms and the hotel and the food. So i will not repeat what did they say but i will apply more information none talked about it.
Its the shops that related to Mexicana in front of the Bus Station. specially the Silvershop.
The owner or the seller they are both so friendly and so kind. you will not believe if i told you that i didnt buy something from there althought i had the best friends there. They were so helpfull to me too.
As i discovered after my tour to pld market and naama bay this shop has the lowest prices. and a very good collection like any shop in old market and naama bay, beside they are ready to serve you all the way.
Just been to the Creative Mexicana for a weeks all inclusive. A bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews posted. But what is all the fuss about!!!
Lovely friendly hotel

We have just returned from a week all inclusive at The Mexicana Hotel.The sevice here is very good although sometimes a bit slow but everyone is really friendly and helpful.The food is of good quality but it seems to be the same for lunch and dinner every day.There were nine in our party and none of us were ill during our stay.I would recommend this hotel and would certainly go back again myself.
Sharm El Sheikh has a lot to offer and The Red Sea is second to none.Naama Bay is good for shopping although we prefered to go to The Old Market as it is more authentic and we had a great laugh when the local shop owners dressed us up!!!
Overall we had a fantastic holiday.
My partner and I spent 2 weeks at the Creative Mexicana. We paid very reasonable prices and were actually really amazed at how good it was condiering what we paid. There have been some unfair reviews of this hotel, which I think are unjust, you have to take it in context of the country you're in. If you want English food, entertainment every night, busy bars and all that, then go to Benidorm!
Recently returned from a week in Sharm El-Sheikh staying at the Mexicana - we are a couple in our mid 20's and stayed in a double room on a Bed and Breakfast basis.
I stayed at the creative mexicana with my wife, and daughter for a week recently, all inclusive.I had read a few reviews, and wasn't sure what to expect.The hotel was lovely,and the staff very friendly and always had a smile on their face,whether you tipped them or not!!
We spent two weeks in this hotel and couldn't wait to get home. We went on an all inclusive basis and the food was the same for lunch and dinner for the whole two weeks. Many people we spoke to couldn't wait to get home and were disgusted by this hotel. The staff were very slow, we always had to wait ages to get a drink and we were all completely ingore when at the pool bar often having to get out to get the drinks, so pool bar pointless. Many people ended up with an upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhoea for part of there holiday, with one having to call out a doctor they were so bad. Even the restaurant which you had to pay for was awful, menu was terrible too.
