Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
This realy was a once in a life time holiday everything was perfect.
The hotel was great 5 star all the way the beach was lovely the private reef was such good fun to explore the food was great and the trips we took were will never be forgotten
... wall was bottomless, there were dozens of snorkelers on the surface, and there were dozens of divers and hundreds of fish under water. The place was beautiful, but with everything going on around us both Leah and I quickly learned that we were in “well over our heads.” Over a period of three days we did 8 dives: two off shore on the first day, and three dives each on a dive boat the next two days. We did drift dives, swam through the most magnificent coral gardens ...
... of the Sinai Peninsula next to the Red Sea, and surrounded by desert Its population is approximately 35,000, and is made up of about 7000 km of land.
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.
... all swimming our way. Such a cool sight to see them cruising through the waves, riding in front of the boat and jumping out of the water. My day was complete.
Back at the hotel we showered and went for dinner (nothing worth mentioning, I think it was just International again) and a few drinks.
Tomorrow is unfortunately our last full day here. We are going to miss having Jets and Megs with us, not to mention the all you can eat ;)
... the Sound and Light Show at the Giza Pyramids for our evening entertainment, including dinner at a nearby restaurant with stunning views of the pyramids.
An hour before we leave for dinner, we see Mark and Janice at the pool in our hotel. How can this be? They have just returned from their scuba diving adventure in Hurghada, another coastal town on Red Sea, and have one ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Golden View Beach Resort Sharm El Sheikh Sharm El-Sheikh
Lovely hotel with friendly staff
We spent a week over Easter at this hotel and enjoyed our stay immensely. The hotel was full but, because it is spread over a large area, was not in any way congested. The reef is particularly good for snorkelling and benefits from being away from the bustle of Naama Bay. I share others views about the limited choice of restaurants, but the standard of food was good, in particular the buffet lunch by the pool which was varied and very reasonably priced at 9 GBPounds per person (children no charge !). The staff were probably the friendliest I have encountered in any hotel worldwide. We will go again.
Me, my Partner, son of 13 and daughter of 5 got back yesterday. The hotel is beautiful and in a lovely setting. Extremely clean throughout the hotel and staff are friendly and helpful. We had booked a family room which we were told sleeps 5 people. When we arrived we had a bedroom with a large double bed and one sofa bed in the sitting room which is no good for two children so basically room was sleeping 3. We were told they were fully booked and couldn't produce another bed until the next morning. As it was now 10 pm there wasn't a lot we could do so our daughter shared with us for the night. Other people apparently had similar experience. Much worse was the rail to the balcony was completely loose and we couldn't possibly allow our youngest onto the balcony by herself. The next day they did fix it 'in a fashion' but it was still dangerously loose. No beach as such at hotel either. Childrens Club totally disorganised and animation team (2 girls) wandered around looking the part but not doing anything. Breakfast very good, pool service excellent (the guys work so hard). Naama Bay very busy and touristy - 10 min taxi from hotel. On the whole we did have a good time but they need to get themselves better organised.
I have just returned from the Renaissance at Sharm and can only say what a lovely place it is, with very good facilities and extremely friendly and helpful staff. It benefits from being in a superb location on the reef so the snorkelling is fantastic, just like being in an aquarium.
I will definatlly go back again!
the staff are very kind and friendly, once you arrive at the hotel the 5 star class begins! i have to say that i WILL DEFINATLLY GO BACK AGAIN! you will just DIE when you see the lobby it is just fantastic!
Beautiful place, brilliant attentive staff
This hotel lived up to its great reviews and to my expectations which were pretty high.... We were certainly not disappointed!! The grounds were gorgeous and perfectly clean. The housekeepers were so friendly as were the waiters. All the food in all the restaurants was first class. As soon as you arrive at the hotel, the excellent 5 star service begins. Everybody is really friendly. The pool boys are ready with fresh towels as soon as you walk towards a sunbed. If there is not a sunbed free, they will find one and bring it to you (with or without a tip!!). The beach area is quite extensive, staged at several different levels. For those of you already booked - enjoy! Those who haven't yet booked - what are you waiting for?!
Returned Sunday night. Fantastic Hotel, fantastic weather (Hot)
Can recommend Bedouin trip and trip to Luxor (Valley of Kings is unbelievable!) Wish we'd booked for 2 weeks...1 is definitely NOT enough!!
Will be returning..... Excellent food and all staff are extremely polite and friendly.
Quite simply the Renaissance Golden View is a great value resort that lives up to its five star billing without damaging your bank balance.
Wow - What a lovely place
Stayed here end of November start of December 2004. Went without the kids for a week just me and husband and we had a suite. Everything about it was lovely. Eating in the hotel is not exensive at all. out on a peninsula past nama bay (very, very touristy- we left after an hour - hassled to death). Because of the teraced design not for anyone with mobility issues.
One heated pool over by acapulco joes diner. Whole place great for couples or families - dont feel over crowded at all.
Great resort in perfect location
A great hotel. The rooms are huge and the facilities excellent. The photos on the Marriott site do not do it justice! The beach is constructed but the location for the reef is ideal and hotel is not on the airport flight path as it is a few km outside of the centre on the other side to the airport. The buffet restaurant is very good but the choice of other restaurants in the hotel is limited (an OK Mexican & more casual pizza/sandwich bar and the Italian is still to be completed). I'd recommend staying B&B and eating there at most only on a few occasions if you are there for a week plus. They do not have imported wine and Egyptian wine is frankly poor.
