... he was being led into a cell to see members of the Anglican Church in Iran who had disappeared and presumably taken hostage. He started the lecture with an amusing story occurring at the end of his solitary confinement in Beirut. Each time Terry Waite was moved during captivity his captors bound him from head to foot in masking tape – a good day for manufacturers of masking tape in Beirut he joked. So bound he was bundled into the boot of a car and driven off. He soon ...
Only a 4 1/2 hour flight, arrive earlier than normal so a couple of hours sunlight left. Interesting journey via taxi to the hotel, which included having to get out of it as we got grounded on a sleeping policeman! Hotel is very spread out, nice gardens. First rooms not to good but the girls manage secure new ...
... offering massages, haircuts, pedicures, and brow waxing. One guy actually starts ripping out Bruce's eyebrows, promising to make Bruce "more beautiful." We figure the only place to hide from these guys is underwater, so we head to the little dive shop, take a quick refresher course, and go SCUBA diving. And wow! The fish and coral in the Red Sea come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors. And they're all beautiful!
After our dive, we lounge on the beach with ...
... all swimming our way. Such a cool sight to see them cruising through the waves, riding in front of the boat and jumping out of the water. My day was complete.
Back at the hotel we showered and went for dinner (nothing worth mentioning, I think it was just International again) and a few drinks.
Tomorrow is unfortunately our last full day here. We are going to miss having Jets and Megs with us, not to mention the all you can eat ;)
After the long drive home, we squeeze in some pool time before dinner in the huge dining room.
In the morning, we have a ride to the airport to return to Cairo. When we get off our Egypt Air flight, we see Hamada waiting for us. The kids run and hug him. He asks all about our time in Sinai and the kids are eager to tell him about the pool at the resort. ...

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..
