... no president (he is only a puppet) and that they wish Mubarak was back in power. We’ll always remember the Red Sea as our first (hopefully of many) dive spot—a really high bar to beat. If I ever hear the following four phrases I will always think of our time here:

The fashion of the day beside the pool and beach is the bikini for young and old - the skimpier, the better or the burkini for the local ladies. Janet and I opted for a more conservative one piece.

The exterior doors of the sanctuary are wooden, showcasing beautiful geometric designs with ivory inlay and tiny crosses. A poster outside the sanctuary shows the path the Holy Family took through Egypt. We walk past the Church of St. Sergius, which is supposedly built over a cave where the Holy Family took refuge.

Sharm was very hot compared to London and the last trip we'd done in Europe. The lady of the bed and breakfast had told us that it was 45 degrees later on in the day, so it was a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sharm Cliff Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
After the taxi driver taking us to 2 different hotels both called the Sharm Holiday Resort, my partner and I were a bit unsure if we were at the right one but reception sorted it out for us. Turns out it was the Sharm Cliff Holiday Resort. We booked all inclusive for 2 weeks.
myself and my wife have just returned from the sharm cliff staying for 1 week we had an absolute brilliant time, when we arrived we were dropped of at the sharm holiday resort (which is the sister hotel), on looking at this hotel we were not very impressed, especially when reading all the other veiws this was supposed to be an upgrade on our hotel, but when we were dropped of at the sharm cliff we thought someones pulling our leg here! the place looked gorgeous it was all marble as you walked into reception greeted with a glass of fruit juice while the man behind reception exsplained everything to us and was very helpful and polite. we arrived at 1800 hrs and were shown to our room it was great very clean a nice big double bed the works, the veiw wasnt that great some building work but who cares how often are you in your room, anyway we went for a bite to eat in the hotel restaurant and found the food BRILLIIANT, listen if you want a full english breakfast, burger and chips ,pizza etc go to benidorm or salou this is egypt your in. the hotel is situated 2 mins from namma bay there is a free shuttle bus to take you or you can walk down the the steps at the front of the hotel not ideal for elderly people but as i say the shuttles there. the all inclusive bar is by the pool side and is good the barman BISHOWY is great, his sidekick LITTLE FADGER is ok too,they have an entertainment /dj there ADEL he is a class on his own he works very hard to get everybody involved in things and is a credit to the hotel the entertainment at night is good and have theme nights etc we had an oriental night and to coincide with it the restaurant had egyption food on they had chicken koffte egyption bread it was STUNNING, the chef spoke to all the english (only 8 of us there) maybee thats got something to do with the other reveiws but anyway he offered to cook us anything we wanted just to ask he kept to his word as people got steak and chips when they asked so all i can say is this place is CRACKING!
We booked to stay for 14 nights all inclusive at Sharm Cliff, Naama Bay. First of all, we discovered that the Sharm Cliff is part of the Sharm Holiday hotel. There is no mention of Sharm Cliff anywhere in the complex! The reception was very unwelcoming with a "can't be bothered" attitude.
Sorry but not a 4 star ,, place needs upgrading .. and food needs to be sorted out ,the food is not hot enough.!!!! but staff spot on ,,
Modest, but great panorama view
The hotel is nice, but quite modest and non-luxurious. Its staff is very friendly. The hotel is situated on a cliff overlooking Naama Bay and offers amazing panoramic view of Naama Bay and Sinai mountains. It takes 5 minutes to walk downstairs from the hotel to the centre of Naama Bay. The food is rather repetative.
Def inately thehotel did not live up to 4 star status, the reception staff were unhelpful although waiters and bar staff tried their hardest to welcome us. The restaurant was the biggest upset, we had to fight for seating, on numerous occasions the food was cold and uncooked. Management took no heed of comlaints and had no control of the restaurant facilities. Our stay was supposedly all inclusive but we found anything other than local spirits ie rum, whisky, vodka and gin had to be paid for. Our daily snack were nonexistant and a majority of europaen visitors suffered from diarrhoea and vomiting. Would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone. Turned out to be the longest week we have spent anywhere. On our last day down came the rain which poured in through the hotel roof.
well firstly reception is not very welcoming and neither were the staff there... itsal a bit confusing really ,like it or lump it atitude .
Good clean hotel
My partner and I stayed at the Sharm Cliff Resort in Naama bay for 7 nights. The hotel was absolutely spotless and the staff were very friendly and helpfull. The hotel caters mainly for Russians so the meals were unusual! We were half board (we should have booked b+b) and the meals were served buffet style. The breakfast was ok with cheese, bread and boiled eggs- no cooked breakfast! Dinner was awful with very strange combinations which the russians lapped up but left us feeling slightly nausous. Needless to say we ate out for the remainder of our stay. The hotel is in the middle of a building site, our balcony and the pool both looking onto half built hotels but we were never disturbed by noise. I would definitely recommend this hotel for its cleanliness, location and staff.
