... from the UK. When we returned to the "public" beach we found that it cost $2 Euro each to use the 30 foot wide access to the beach....with only about that much space at the beach front. Other beachs cost closer to $12 Euro each...so we did like our find.
There were two little Egyptian boys playing and we got a kick out of them and their families.
... All we want them to do is keep us alive.
Anyway, we now have 8 cans of Coke, and none of our American comrades want any. Apparently they're all Coke Zero devotees. We continue on our drive until we come around the bend in the highway and lo and behold! The Red Sea!
Despite its name, the Red Sea is actually an incredible, deep aqua color. It is breathtakingly beautiful, and the area really should be filled with resorts. There are plenty of ...
Originally I was supposed to leave for Aqaba in Jordan the next morning. But after having such a nice massage by Ahmed "the Shark"? The relaxing evening by the beach and the spectacular diving, leaving did not seem like the obvious choice. The holiday feeling had only just kicked in. So I stayed. As it turns out, I stayed for two more days. I had a wonderfully lazy day at the beach, snorkelling, swimming and reading. I even joined a yoga class in the morning. At ...
... to finish off our "trip series" Breaking Bad having only 2 episodes left. And my goodness the ending did not disappoint, do yourself a favour and watch the whole 4 series!
We spent the afternoon again around the pool before Jethro and I challenged each other to table tennis. 4 games later I was undefeated, not sure where this hidden talent has come from :)
After dinner which was nice ...
... the Sound and Light Show at the Giza Pyramids for our evening entertainment, including dinner at a nearby restaurant with stunning views of the pyramids.
An hour before we leave for dinner, we see Mark and Janice at the pool in our hotel. How can this be? They have just returned from their scuba diving adventure in Hurghada, another coastal town on Red Sea, and have one ...

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..
