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 …
... so I guess we disappointed them.
We wondered the length of the beach looking for the "public" beach area. On the way, we found a sign for "Happy Hour" from noon to 1pm. After more wandering we found the "public" beach. But by that time it was noon....so we went back to our first find - HAPPY Hour - and had some Egyptian beers with some ...
... 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 ...
... I came out I decided to find a cafe and maybe have a bite to eat afterwards. At Aladdin I had a drink and made some use of the wifi there. It was still really quiet everywhere. In fact, I was Aladdin's only customer. Even when I left, some 1.5 hours later, no other people had come to join me on the colourful cushions under the many star shaped lights. I ended up having dinner at the hotel. It really wasn't so appealing to eat by myself in one of the ...
... 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 ...

It is a great hotel food great and a good selection
Room great pool area great staff great and very friendly.
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
