Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
Second time back. Quad biking.
So this blog is actually being created now I'm home from Egypt, but as I refused to pay for internet access at the hotel we were staying in, I had no other choice really! The holiday was fab. It was nice to get away, get some sun and forget about all the work and stress that's taken over my life in recent weeks. Darrell and I spent most of the time …
... 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 ...
Sharm el Sheikh is the travel destination for the international set. It is what Bali is to Australians. No Aussies but lots of Russians, Germans, English and every other nationality within a 5 hour flight radius.
We spent the day before battling Cairo traffic to the airport and then flying here. (1 hour flight). Shorter than the ride to the airport in Cairo.
Sharm el-Sheikh is situated on the ...
... luggage I have ever seen it was as if people were moving house. Luckily we had the car so we just sat whilst Gary did the negotiating and it meant we didn't have to stand in the ridiculous queue. Around 1 hour later and about 750 Egyptian Pounds poorer we were officially in Egypt.
And well there was actually nothing to see but sand, dirt and mountains then more sand and dirt. This place is the most barren I have ever seen it is like ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sierra Sharm El Sheikh Sharm El-Sheikh
Visited the sierra resort in september, very dissapointed. Definately only 3*, both were ill. Doctor called. Hotel still under construction. Took 2 hours to get to hotel. Food very bland and unapertising. Nobody about,un policed no mans land. Be aware. Don`t trust anyone. Water not safe, pool dirty. Beer uuuk! Wine uuuuuk! Staff pleasant, helpfull but lacked integraty. Naama bay, don`t go there. Entertainment nill. Not built for disabled people or those with poor healf. Locals don`t like us. Full of ignorant germans. You have to sign for everything, why? Its fully inclusive. Not allowed to enter the sea, because of coral. Savoy ok but no one there. Airport frightening. Would not go back if they paid me. Have logded complaint with excel airline, and oddysey olympic holidays, have a good time somewhere else.
Just spent a very relaxing two weeks at the Sierra Hotel. We had our reservations about the hotel having read some of the reports but we're happy to say it was a very pleasent suprise when we arrived. The hotel is spotless and once inside the atmosphere is lovely.
Went with Libra holidays. Flew from Newcastle with Thomas Cook airlines which was terrible as no leg room at all - it was cattle class.
Stayed here in October and overall had a great holiday but felt that the hotel is slightly misrepresented in all holiday brochures.
Just returned from a week at the Sierra with my 13 year old daughter. Was very disappointed. We went with Soliman travel who for some reason flew us into Taba airport which necessitated a 4 hour journey to our resort, which was odd as Sharm airport was within walking distance, approx 10 minutes. Please be aware that airport noise IS a problem also that there are many night flights! This hotel is not a 5*, the hotel itself says it is a 4* and having travelled a fair amount I would say pushing it at 3*. The rooms are very basic bed, TV, shower, and fridge which is not stocked. The pool is good and pool staff friendly and weather was great. Hotel was filled with mainly German and Russian guests (you need to reserve your sun lounger early) Sorry to sound so negative but was really looking forward to a break and winding down.
Attended Sierra Hotel 15/10/05-22/10/05. Libra holidays. Flew with XL Airways.
The hotel is situated next to the airport and there is some noise but not all day. You can sit in the dining room and watch the airplanes land and take off. We were dropped off within 15 minutes from the airport and the first view of the hotel was building work being carried out in the front/main entrance area however this had no effect on our holiday and there was no noise from the area under construction.
Before I start this review a message to all people concerned about security.
