“We are always on the lookout for bargain holidays so when this one came up we couldn’t resist as we have stayed here previously. As in our previous visit the hotel, room, food, staff and entertainments team were faultless. This time we spent a couple of days diving which was ‘out of this world’ and went on a glass bottom boat. As the hotel is really near the beach we spent quite a lot of time just relaxing. This is the best hotel we have stayed in when holidaying in Egypt and will be returning again. Remember there are plenty of places to visit and taxi fares are cheap.”
IBEROTEL PALACE OVERVIEW
Sharm El Sheikh is renowned for its all-singing, all-dancing hotels. However, because the Iberotel Palace is smaller and cosier both in looks and atmosphere, it is at the more intimate end of the Sharm spectrum.
With one end of the main terrace opening to the sandy beach, the Iberotel has two split-level lagoon pools ringed by bougainvillea-draped terraces, sunloungers and parasols.
The hotel is set on its own exclusive beach, a two-minute walk (100m) from Old Sharm and a short bus or taxi ride from Naama Bay (8kms). The hotel runs free boats to and from an offshore coral reef for a spot of snorkelling.
The guest rooms are comfortable and are finished in soft creams with pale-wood furnishings and marble floors. All of the rooms have a balcony or terrace which are furnished with wicker patio sets.
All 254 rooms have Double bed/twin beds, air conditioning, hairdryer, satellite TV, telephone, internet access, minibar (filled on request), iron and board (on request), safety deposit box.
