Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
Egypt was one of the most amazing and different experiences of my life.
It was my first time out of Europe and my first exposure to poverty and a culture very unlike ours here in the UK.
We stayed in a 4 star hotel and i really enjoyed the accommodation. We organised our excursions through the hotel and travel company.
... travels that we have been pickpocketed! We noticed right after it happened in the Aswan souk but it was too late. The little ******* made off with $20. It could have been much worse, but man was he good. He had mad pickpocketing skills. More than once we had to walk out of a restaurant or raise a fuss when taxi drivers or restaurant owners were ganging up on us to charge us double or triple the price. And I’m proud to say that Panu, in one very particular instance, yelled at a ...
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 ...
... else easier. We got straight to business though, as we wanted to be done by lunch time. After the theoretical test he gave me a quick briefing, we picked up my equipment and got ready, BWRAF and everything :) And then there was it, my first open water dive! :) After doing some exercises we had maybe half an hour of just swimming around the house reef here at Naama Bay, and whatever I might say now just won’t do it justice. It kinda felt as being with ...
... is another one of those instances where your not entirely sure if this is creepy, apart of the culture, sweet, or just odd. I reserve no judgments. Yet.
I figure on a scale of 1-10 of "stalking behaviors" observed by egyptian males, this is only around a 1.5. So Ill let it go.
Having thought of before how dumb not being able to get ahold of him is, and him informing me that he could loose his job if they find out we are talking, I opt to get him to call himself from ...

Historical Traveler Reviews AA Grand Oasis Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
a group of 6 adults and 5 children stayed here for new year 2004.staff very friendly cannot do enough for you. hotel is immaculately clean.i am a fussy eater but there was something you could eat every night. italian restaurant lovely food. fish restaurant not very nice.new year gala was out of this world (providing we can get the leave from work for new year 2005 will return to this hotel. snorkelling amazing!! worth a visit to the pyramids, naama bay. went on camels and quad biking in desert. larger pool cold but smaller one heated. weather was fab..the only thing i would say if you were staying at this hotel at peak times (summer) you may have difficulty getting sun loungers and there may be queues at the main restaurant as it is a very large hotel ,but we didnt have this problem. i really dont know why others have complained!!
if you are going to the tropicana grand oasis and you drink vodka i strongly advice you to buy your own in duty free at the airport as the local vodka is really bad,the food is really boring and served cold.this hotel caters more for the italians than for the british. but saying all that i really did enjoy my holiday,the pool was brill same as the sea ,there is a bit of a walk to the beach but its not really a beach at all its more of a platform with sun beds, dont let this put you off ,the hotel is spotless and airconditioned ,i am going back to the red sea trying the resort hurghada in january
This is a large hotel, set in lush green gardens on the edge of a very arid desert. We booked it as a four star plus hotel, but it really feels more like a three star. It's next to the airport, but noise didn't trouble us.
A family view
well i am just back from 2 weeks all inclusive at the grand oasis tropicana 2 children my wife and myself
my honest opininon the hotel is excelent the food is great (my children had a good choice ) the staff very accomidating but not in your face all the time but the animation team (hotel entertainers )
were fantastic from a 10/10 they took it to about 15/10
it was the first holaday i have relaxed on the reps were about if needed and allways left a schedule if they werent about
if i could find a reasone to fault the hotel i would but i cant
my recomendation i cant wait to go back as soon as possable
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in November 2004 on an all inclusive basis. The Hotel itself is not too bad however the food in the main restraunt is very poor and more often than not is cold. There are 3 other restraunts in the hotel which are Italian not bad, Oriental awful and fish didnt try it these 3 restraunts are booked on a daily basis however there is only the Italian which seems to be popuar. The rooms at the hotel are big enough and are kept clean as is the rest of the Hotel. There are 2 large swimming pools and the hotel has it,s own beach area with a floating jetty so that you can enter the sea easily and that is the best bit the swimming is great.
Quite the worse hotel we have been to in the last 35 years. ( 100 hotels we have stayed at)
I really enjoyded this vacation, there was enough food, good deserts, but after 1 week eating this food, it becomes all the same for you!!! The swimmingpool is nice, there's a lot of entertainment like watergymnastic, waterpolo, people which come to you to make you laugh!!!
The hotel is literally 5 minutes away from the airport - this doesnt create a problem with noise from the aeroplanes. Great reception area, very helpfull staff.
This hotel is excellent, i stayed there in june 2004 and it was fantastic, the staff were really friendly and helpful, the food was yummy and there was loads to choose from. I would definaltly recommend this hotel. The only down side is the lack of sun loungers by the pool but if you can get up early to put your towel out your sorted. It costs around £4-5 in a taxi to namma bay from the hotel but you can haggle. Overall an excellent choice and i would go back to the hotel, its really worth the four stars and the staff are so dedicated to keeping the hotel really clean.
Everybody else what is your problem this hotel rocks!!!!
