Halomy Hotel Naama Bay Sharm El Sheikh Reviews
No frills basic accommodation but FANTASTIC location Oct 08, 2010
A perfect base to explore Sharm el Sheik in the resort of Naama Bay. The Halomy Hotel is one of the first Hotels built in the resort and although cannot compete with the Luxury 5* hotels in Decoration and is in need of a coat of paint or 2, the location of this Hotel is beyond compare.
Set up on the hillside of the Highest point of the resort, the Halomy has the most stunning views out over the entire Bay of Naama. This is particulary amazing at night time when the town is in full illumination. The hotel has a peaceful bar/taverna to sit and enjoy the views in the evening if you don't feel like venuturing into town.
The other benefit of this hotel is that you do not need to get a taxi into town like you do from most of the other hotels - this is a great money saver. Town can be reached by staircase which is quite hard work in the heat as there are over 100 steps, but if you take your time and take in the view on your way, it is not a problem.
There is a private man-made beach with a jetty to enter the water over a coral reef. Again, this is reached by stairs down from the hotel but not as many as the other staircase. This private section in my opinion is the best location in Naama Bay for snorkeling - there really are some amazing fish to be seen and the water is crystal clear.
The staff here all also really cool and laid-back so it's nice not to be constantly hassled like you are when in town!
