So this has to be really short, unforunately because we are already WAY over our time limit at the internet cafe in Sharm El-Sheikh. Fortunately we know the owner, so hopefully he will cut us some slack. In any case, we decided to spend last night at Sharm El-Sheikh which is on the Red Sea, just across the Gulf of Aqaba from Saudi Arabia. We …

We stayed at the Marriot Hotel. Our Hotel was on the mountainside and the better half was on the beach side. Crossing to the beach meant a 5 minute walk over a busy highway with traffic police slowing down the traffic to allow tourists to cross.
... Arriving in the early morning fog with a brisk breeze blowing across our bow, the bridge crew eased our ship into her anchorage and set the aft thrusters on "station keeping" mode. I went out on the aft deck and noticed dozens of dive boats anchored in the harbor and throughout the morning many left their moorings and headed out to the choice dive spots – taking some of our passengers on a snorkeling tour. These were not cheap ...
... were delighted to see that there was a reef right off the property. So we would just run down to the pier and snorkel right off it! We were astounded by the number of fish and sealife we saw just there! It was like being in a fish tank and the colours were amazing. We also did 3 dives while there. One was at the reef ...

We have travelled all over the world and have had good hotels and not so good
But this place rates in my top 10
It is the 1st time in egypt and it certainly will not be our last
If anybody is worried about coming to sharm dont it is very safe and a great place to come too
I made the same mistake as the reviewer,I did not read my contract properly. I assumed it was a hotel but it is a resort, equal to three stars but not the 5 at the Ibortel Grand Sharm which stands in front of it on the beach. The rooms were good, very clean,towels and bed linen every day. Beach Towels every day which you could take out of the resort. The resort had access to two beaches, one by bus or walk the other down by the old town. A free bus service to both, but in fact you could walk quicker to the beach near the hotel than wait for the bus. We only had breakfast and it was fine. Reports were that the dinners were ok. The only people who appeared dissatified were on a all inclusive package which appears to be poor beacause there was quite a wide range of guests and the resort had to control who got what. Also there was no late night food.
We are 2 women from Denmark,who just have spent 3 weeks at this hotel.We enjoyed it very much-the staff was very kind and the cleaning of the room in top.
We had booked a two week holiday at the Creative Grand Sharm after reading a view review had a few reservations.
Just got back from 2 weeks staying at the Creative Grand Sharm and have found it to be an excellent hotel especially for the price.
We booked this holiday on a late deal and cost very little.
Our bathroom was the main complaint as it stank of sewage and the shower was freezing.
We had an all inclusive package the food was fine but got dull after a few days.
The in house 'club' was very dated and not great.
Although it was very friendly and good value for money.
If you are looking to lay in the sun and snorkel this place is fine! wild nights out you need to travel
