Hotel/Resort Egypt - any Recommendations?

Post by snoops » Sun 25 Jul, 2010 11:03

Hi

Looking for recommendations if anyone has any. Looking to totally chill out so need good facilities and a hotel that has a good AI deal, i.e. not one of these hotels that doesn't really include everything. :sunny

It's not a sightseeing hol though, our batteries are totally drained, so no need to consider sights...

The Sofitel in Taba Heights is very good AI and it really means all inclusive. If you do decide on a trip go to Petra it's awesome!! 8-)

Um, I hate to point out that Petra is in Jordan, Gill, and it's a fair old swim from Egypt. :lol:

It is an awesome place though - I visited in March this year.

I wasn't overly impressed with Sharm El Sheik - it is a purpose built tourist resort with not a lot to go and see - but it does have plenty of sun, a beach and restaurants. The 3D planet exhibition was quite good, but not quite the same as the trip to St. Catherine's Monastery that we were supposed to be doing but didn't have time.

Cairo is certainly not the place to go if you want relaxation.

Afraid I can't recommend a hotel as I we went on a cruise ship.

Well, Rob, Petra is of course in Jordan BUT it's only a short boat trip from Taba Heights across the Gulf of Aqaba!

I agree with your comment on Sharm , it's the Egyptian equivalent to Benidorm.

If you just want to relax, i did a nile cruise about 5 years ago. form Luxor to Aswan and back. All inclusive, flights accomodation food and even drink !

you dont have to get of the boat/ship to do the excursions, just stay on it, plenty to do, burn in the sun, drink alcohol, jacuzzi/pool etc. very good. and entertainment on the cruise in the evenings

top value for money, some of the trips are very cheap and worthwhile

'Tis true - Egypt, Israel and Jordan all come together there. We were marooned in Aqaba docks for the first three days of the cruise due to storms in the Red Sea area. I was still a couple of hours on a coach to Petra from Aqaba, but well worth it.

Egypt Hotels - Taba heights

Hope this works ... :D

Stay here ...

Book through ...

Check reviews at ...

I know its only half board but you can sign things to your room and card it at the end. You can also eat at the resturants of the other resort hotels - about 6 in total, and at a considerable discount. There's even a free shuttle bus to ferry you around. Have stayed here on 3 occasions and can thoroughly recommend it ... :cheers

If you want cheese and a fully modern holiday (which looks like it could be anywhere in the world - then sharm el shake SP?) If you want something relaxing and mellow.... think a bit like Thailand, then Dahab on the red sea. Excellend diving, go into the dunes for quad biking etc, good prices on food and they are BYOB making the night cheaper again.....all the restraunts are along the waters edge and are not pushy chains trying to get you to eat and leave like sharm....

If you have not been before though, then a package from Cairo to Aswan way on a river boat down the Nile is the way to go for sure!!

Well what can I say... I so appreciated all the good suggestions from you guys and they are all "stored" for another time.

However we're going chilling in Rhodes, nice quiet resort with (hopefully) only the sound of lapping waves and the clinking of glasses.

I do appreciate all your suggestions though and we will visit Egypt soon.
