... number of us are taking meclazine to ward off sea sickness. It is nice and calm when we are at a dive sight as i would never have been able to work on the computer when under way.
We hear there are still demonstrations in Cairo but that seems far away from us now. I will sign off as the divers should be popping up soon. I understand this is it for the internet for a couple of days.

... that she kept trying to shake off - they really are the strangest looking fish, with what appears to be a boot print on their head but which is actually the sucker they use to attach to their hosts.
Around 25 minutes after we got in the water, it was time to head back towards the reef, Ruben and I split off from the others and did some more exploring on the sea grass and were rewarded when we found a large turtle!
Finding the reef again was no problem and we had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Three Corners Fayrouz Plaza Beach Resort Marsa Alam
The staff were co-operative and friendly and to be frank they were the best asset of the hotel. Accomodation is a good 3 star level and the food was adequately pallatable. The range of pastry and breads at breakfast were wonderful, closely followed by some of the sweets at lunch and dinner. The location is convenient for the airport (5-10 mins) but getting a reasonably priced taxi appeared to be impossible, so its a bit of a rip-off at 30 euro return. Situated on a nice beach where the sea breaze made the heat bearable. Just walk out from the beach and you are on to the coastal coral reef. Snorkelling was fantastic. Huge variety of fish and lots of them too. Perhaps the choice of things to do will change when Port Ghalib is built. Until then , if all you want is a relaxing holiday with sun then you won't do too badly here. (at the right price)
Il personale era gentile e disponibile e, a dire il vero, era il punto forte dell'hotel. La camera era al livello di un buon 3 stelle e il cibo era assolutamente commestibile. Il buffet di pane e dolcetti a colazione era eccezionale, così come alcuni dei dessert serviti a pranzo e a cena. La posizione è comoda per l'aeroporto (5-10 minuti), ma è stato impossibile trovare un taxi che proponesse tariffe ragionevoli e devo dire che spendere 30 euro per un'andata-ritorno è stato un vero ladrocinio. L'hotel sorge lungo una bella spiaggia e la brezza marina rende sopportabile il caldo. A pochi passi dall'hotel troverete la barriera corallina costiera: lo snorkelling è stato una favola, abbiamo potuto osservare un'enorme varietà e abbondanza di pesci. Credo ci saranno più cose da fare una volta ultimato Port Ghalib ma, fino ad allora, se volete trascorrere una vacanza di relax al sole, vi troverete bene in questo resort e spenderete il giusto.
When we initially booked the holiday I was actually quite worried as we were informed that the hotel was in the middle of the desert, basically in the middle of nowhere and so there was consequently not a lot to do. However if you're looking for somewhere quiet, this is the place for you.
Il Three Corners è eccezionale per trascorrere una vacanza di massimo relax: la pulizia è impeccabile e il personale è incredibilmente gentile. Si sono davvero fatti in quattro per noi, soprattutto il personale del ristorante, anche se gli addetti alle pulizie e il team dell'animazione erano in ugual modo fantastici. Hanno trattato noi e, in particolare nostra figlia, con i guanti bianchi. Ci siamo concessi un'escursione di un giorno a Il Cairo con Memphis Tours: è stata un'esperienza strepitosa e la nostra guida era preparatissima e deliziosa.
The Three Corners is an excellent place to visit if you fancy a relaxing holiday. It is spotless and the staff are unbelievably friendly. They really couldn't do enough for us- especially the restaurant staff although the housekeeping and animation team were also excellent. They treated us and especially our daughter like royalty.
Just got back from Three Corners Fayrouz Plaza at Marsa Alam having spent an enjoyable week there in fantastic weather.The hotel is a clean modern low rise hotel in a very quiet location some 15 mins from the airport. It is a new hotel but more akin to 3+ star possibly 4 star but definately NOT the 5 star advertised.
Having just returned from a week at the Three Corners Fayrouz Plaza Beach Hotel we feel the need to inform others of our findings. This will be a very nice place to come in 5 years time but as yet the hotel is not finished and there is absolutely nothing around it . Marsa Alam itself is 65kms away. A rich Saudia Arabian has had the idea of building a lot of properties about 1mile away and making a port for use of the many boats that take divers to the reefs etc. The locals told us he wants to bring people from the "city" of Marsa Alam and will be building hotels,shops,restaurants etc and a hospital and the necessary facilities for the locals. This is still in the early stages of development. The hotel itself was very nice but not completed and the so called animation team were exceptionally poor,so dont go expecting any shows! The food was good,and the rooms and the whole of the hotel was spotlessly clean. It is not,and will not be a place suitable for disabled or people with walking difficulties, as the hotel is situated quite high up from the beach, and at present not a proper walkway. The staff were very friendly,and polite. The pool was very good and had a good range of depths, also a jacuzzi and kids pool. There was only one restaurant available at the moment as others had not been completely built. Dont expect to be able to walk out at night anywhere as we were told it was dangerous,and there is only one road finished and that is the main road to the airport. Given time for completion this may be a very nice area of egypt to visit, but for us it was too cut off from any form of civilisation,and we like it quiet! You want to go to the desert then this is the place!! Thomsons do this hotel at the moment and also Med Hotels,so there should be a lot of English people visiting in the future but at present we were very much in the minority as we were told it is a European hotel chain.
This was our 3rd time to Egypt and second time in Marsa Alam. Although this hotel is not as great, in my opinion as the Laymaya (where we stayed last year) it is still very good.
What a lovely hotel,deserves its 5 star rating! Although it hadn't properly been finished when we stayed it was still very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We were the first English families to stay here as most of the other guests were German, Russian or Italian.
Three Corners Fayrouz Plaza Beach Resort
si tratta di una struttura con future buone potenzialią ma allo stato attuale si tratta di un vero e proprio cantiere aperto.
il complesso non č ancora ultimato (mancano i ristoranti e i servizi sulla spiaggia) e vi sono all'opera (giorno e notte) numerosi operai e giardinieri (ll verde al momento č inesistente).
L'accesso al mare č attualmente molto difficoltoso - ma il mare č splendido.
Attualmente manca del tutto ogni tipo di servizio.
Non č inoltre semplicissimo uscire dalla struttura e fare escursioni.
