Ancient Egypt must have been really something. Our 10-day visit has exceeded our expectations. Egypt’s history is fascinating, and because the climate is so dry and hot the ancient monuments are incredibly well preserved. Traveling to Egypt really does have its drawbacks, however. If you are not on an organized tour you will face harassment and/or people trying to cheat you for a good part of the day. Egypt is actually the first country in all ...
... breathing lesson where their head was kept under water and once they passed this they were allowed to go scuba diving held onto by the instructor.
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.
Four days and four nights of relaxation, sun, surf and water. ...
... we were down at the Red Sea Diving college. The only thing weirder than an Egyptian talking to you in a pretty decent Russian just because he’s seen your name is when your diving instructor greets you in Bulgarian and it turns out his name is not Stephen, but Stefan :-D Having a Bulgarian instructor was not only fun, but also very useful, it made things a lot faster, I learned a lot of the diving vocabulary in Bulgarian as well and it also ...
... hell has energy for that? B. How to teach your child to not be able to entertain themselves. C. How to make them codependant. She is very determined to make him independant but encourages some behavor that does not go with this. ie. running into his bedroom everytime he makes a squeek in the middle of the night, wanting him entertained 24/7, and not letting him fall asleep on his own.
Luckily, Madu finds me. He knew I would show up and waited around for an hour to see if I ...

2. The Bayview Hotel is a no frills hotel off the main strip with great rooftop views. Good clean rooms but the front desk staff in the evening are **** (this is based on dealing with them on 3 separate nights), the day staff were great.

Historical Traveler Reviews Amarante Garden Palms Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
Site- on fringe of Naama bay, just a little way up from Grand Casino, next to Three Corners Kriorenzi. Size- half size of Hyatt Regency. Feel, not as imposing and cold as the bigger hotels, more welcoming, really friendly staff. Management, very friendly,cant do enough. Pools- 1 big one not heated,small kids pool to side. 1- heated pool round back overlooking Sinia mountains. All inclusive format-good value, especially if you drink a lot. Food- Excellent, varied choice over 1-week but can get samey when staying for 2. Break up with few meals out. Cleanliness- absolutly spotless, food will NOT give you upset stomach here. Minerals in water will, and i think no matter what you do, where you go, you will get ill. But if like me, only one day of bad gripes, then fine once your used to it. Ideal position for couples and familys whose kids like to play with parents and keep thereselves amused. About 20EP into Naama centre but free bus operates at night with staggared pick ups to get back. This really is a special place and one that I would book again. EEEEEEEEEEEEEK. Very good for cheeky monkeys, please se photos.
well me and the family were certainly dubious after reading all the reveiws prior to going but the hotel was fabulous and the staff were amazing and could not do enough for you. This went for the Senior management done to the gardeners etc as they all wanted to please, never had a problem at all, however the day time entertainment is non existent apart from stretching (obviously appeals to the eyeties there) and the woman who runs the entertainment is hopeless. She walks round in her jacket(!), hands in pocket and looks miserable despite her beauty, I wished I had taken a tin of paint as it would have been more entertaining watching it dry than her programme. Shame as me and my two boys like water polo and volleyball etc. Evening entertainment is very low key and we thought it was very poor, the highlight was the Russian night, yes you expect Cossack dancing, horses, swords and lots of noise and men etc and we actually got 4 go go dancers from Russia dancing like disco queens, and rubbish to boot as well.
Myself and my partner have just returned from a week's All Inclusive at the Tropicana Garden Palms and i must state that the hotel was absolutley fantastic!!!
Having arrived at tropicana garden palms on the 21st july 2005 beautiful hotel and the staff are so friendly nothing is too much trouble in spite some of them loosing loved ones on the 22nd july when the bomb went off in the ghasala gardens hotel down the road from us.
It did not stop us going out at all as the security is really hot now and everyone was so helpfull in every way.
beautifull clean hotel good food plenty of choice. pool spotless cleaning going on most of the day all over the hotel unlike some hotels i have stayed in all over the world.
would go back again tommorow great place and shall visit again in great location to namma bay.
I Can honestly say i was dreading going on holiday this year after reading the views on this website for this hotel, and i am so pleased to say it was fantastic.
We spent two weeks all-inclusive in the Tropicana Garden Palms and it was truly the best holiday we have ever had. We were first expecting it to be full of Italians, but it's actually mainly a British Hotel (going exclusive to Thomson's this winter apparently).
Definately return to this hotel
I got back from the Tropicana garden palms last week and couldn't fault it in any way. After reading some of the reviews on the net I was a little weary but my partner and I had a fantastic time in Sharm. The hotel was lovely and exceptionally clean- the staff at both the bars and reception spoke very good english and were ever so helpful and friendly. I thought this hotel was great, the food was varied each night and was of a very high stantard compared to some all inclusives. We had a fantastic time at this hotel and would definately book to go there again.
Any questions feel free to mail
Me and my girlfriend have just returned from this hotel and I can say that we found it to be excellant , all be it with a couple of downsides.
we have just got back from a 2 week holiday at the tropicana garden palms which is the sister hotel to the grand oasis , if you stay at garden palms you can still use your all inclusive braclets at this resort..
