Went to Sharm with a friend in february 2007. travelled with thomas Cook. ( Rachel our Rep was so helpful and friendly.)What an amazing Hotel. The staff couldn't do enough for you, always asking if you were okay or if you needed anything. The room was large with two double beds and a great balcony. The food at the hotel was buffet style and repetitive much better value to go along to Naama Bay.. just across the ( busy and lethal) two lane road from the Beach side marriott, where you could walk along to the resort of Naama Bay. Naama bay was bustling and the shop keepers and sellers a bit irritating at times trying to get you to spend!!. But it was good, plenty bars and places to eat. Went on an excursion to cairo from sharm by plane, (cost about £120) which was great but tyring. Flew out at 6am, met by local tour guide and egyptologist for the rest of the trip. Visited the museum of antiquities, lasted 3 hrs, then the magnificent pyramids, which were a total experience, very much enjoyed. Papyrus factory was good but there was a dubious man hanging around at the ladies toilet there.. bizarre.. avoid him.. Also went on boat trip to Ras Mohammed National Park. Very beautiful and a lovely day out. Weather in february was comfortable and we both got a lovely tan.
