... to Sharm again and again to dive. A Dutch family of three was on our dive boat. The parents have been to Sharm seven times in the past nine years, and the daughter five. They have all logged well over a hundred dives. We were not as experienced - this became evident to me as we jumped into the water off the back of our boat at Jackson Reef, a picturesque underwater plateau near Tiran Island, to begin our second day of diving and our first time ever in open water. The sea next to ...

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 "White Party" which was in the hotels disco. It wasn't that bad dancing and drinking and before we knew it it was 2am. Jets, Megs, Gary and I weren't done so we jumped in a cab to hit the town. Unfortunately by the time we got there Gary had had enough and it was time to head home, oh well cabs are super cheap and it was worth it just to see how the place completely buzzes at night.

Sharm is Ft. Lauderdale meets Vegas - my nightmare. But, it was good to see it. Our hotel overlooked the Hard Rock Cafe, TGIFridays, Pizza Hut and countless outdoor hookah bars. I should say, it was quite a treat though to have a non-molded shower curtain. There were no people out on the main drag around 2pm when we arrived because it's just too hot. I assume they were either in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Sharm Hotel, Resort, Villas & Spa Sharm El-Sheikh
Just come back from a really fantastic holiday in Egypt. Stayed at the Sheraton (hotel area, not resort) which was just what we required - quiet, laid back but quality, first class rooms, great service, not crowded, very clean and friendly. The view from the hotel rooms and snorkelling off the Sheraton House Reef are worth staying here for alone!
Overall the hotel is really good, except for the water in the taps, which is a dark brown color at times. Also, no hot water between 7:00-10:00 am in the morning, so either take a shower before going to bed or rise early.
We stayed in the Sheraton Sharm last week in April in a superior room, which had a great sea view. The bedroom was spacious with seperate area for TV etc, with a large private balcony and good air con. Room was well tended with "treats" being left in bedroom by hotel staff - fruit, flowers etc, which was a nice touch. Security seemed to be good with every car having to go through two security checks at hotel entrance and various road checks were in place on road into Narma Bay, which is a must to go for a variety of food and drinks in evening. Taxi cost to Narma Bay about £3.50 (hotel taxi) and £2.50 (blue and white taxis) but always negotiate - which sometimes works!! Food more expensive as you would expect in hotel but worth it as you get some entertainment thrown in as well. If I must find fault -- it would have been nice to have one pool for adults only as there were a lot of families there (and ours have grown up!!) and breakfast does end up a bit of a bun fight due to volume of diners but overall we had a great time, lovely weather, great for early or late in year. Hotel standard is a good four star.
We stayed here in March for 2 weeks and found the hotel to be a mixed bag. We were given a "preferred room" which, although was at the top of the hotel to maximise the view, was also under the restaurant so you could hear every scrap of a chair which was very disturbing in the morning when they were preparing for breakfast. Also, whether this was to do with the room being at the top of the hotel I don't know, but the water temperature and pressure were unreliable. The shower could turn freezing at one point only to be boiling hot (so much so you had to jump out the shower), a few seconds later. We were warned the water could also be brown, which it quite often was, making a bath instead of a shower not an option. In all fairness to the hotel I believe this is a problem with Egypt and not the hotel.
Great value; would return
I stayed there in May 2004. For whatever reason, the hotel was not full, but the food was good, the staff was pleasant, and the grounds were beautiful. I stayed in I think the older part of the hotel which was pretty simple but clean and convenient to the main part of the hotel.
Had a wonderful holiday,the hotel was excellent, very clean and the staff were excellent, they were very friendly and could not do enough for you.
Getting around the hotel grounds was very easy with the bus that was running all the time. The pools were great and the sea was full of all kinds of colourful fish. Would return again at this time of year where the weather was hot and sunny every day. It is the place to go for a bit of winter sun.
we stayed at the shereton in november 2004, it was perfect, could not find any faults, only to praise highly the staff and hotel, the perfect holiday.
so good we went back in febuary this year it is simply the best holiday destination and hotel we have found and we will visit again in november
We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Sheraton Sharm where we were treated like royalty by the very friendly staff who cannot do enough for you. Our room was spotless as was the whole hotel resort (they even take time to clean the tops of street lights!) and the facilities were excellent. There are six glorious pools of which i would recommend the 'waterpolo pool' by the main hotel in front of the beach as this one was the warmest!
We have just returned and found the Hotel and its surroundings to be clean and well laid out, the food was good the staff friendly with a good sense of humour. There was plenty to do and see if you wished and the beach and sea was second to none. We will definitely visit again.
Fantastic Hotel for whatever holiday you are after whether it be relaxed or adventurous, beach bum or scuba diver...definitely would recommend to anyone visiting Sharm el Sheikh area. A little out of the way location wise however a taxi will have you in the bustling na'ama bay within 10 minutes and is very cheap. You can pretty much jump in a taxi at any time of day or night outside the hotel lobby.
