Things to Do Outside the Hotel

Sharm El Shiekh isn't exactly the culture capital of the world, but there are some things that you can do. We stayed at the Club Magic Life and there are a number of things to do, both near the hotel and further afield:1. Outside the HotelThere are a few little shopping areas just outside the front entrance of the hotel where you can pick up souvenirs and essentials. There are a couple of shops inside the hotel resort but things tend to be much cheaper in these shops outside and there is also the chance to haggle. If you turn right when you leave the hotel there are a few fast food restaurants (including McDonalds, KFC and even Starbucks) for if you are missing your home comforts....Read More

Hotel | "Price and Is It Worth it?"

We booked the hotel as part of a package so I’m not entirely sure how much the hotel cost us. There was a price list inside the room that said our room was 120 per night per room. It didn’t say which currency it was in though and I wouldn’t like to guess because they do seem to use all kinds of currencies in these parts. Our package was around £1700 for two of us for two weeks to give you an idea. This included flights and transfers. Comparitively I think it is quite expensive because there are lots of cheaper hotels and resorts in Sharm El Sheikh, but I have to say that you are paying a premium for a slightly better level of resort. The hotel is a five star hotel and it certainly does hav...Read More

Hotel | "Entertainment and Passing the Time"

Sunbathing is obviously the first choice of ‘activity’ in these parts and there is plenty of opportunity to do it. We preferred the beach because it was generally quieter and I love looking out to sea. It can get a bit windy by the beach, but they have huge wind breakers and the beach staff are happy to move them around to make them into a little den for you. There is also a beach bar so you don’t have to wander far for a drink! If you prefer the pool, there are two in the resort. The bigger one is absolutely huge but is where all the daytime activities take place so it can get very noisy. There is also a DJ booth near this pool, so it creates more of a party atmosphere. The sun umbrellas here are als...Read More

Hotel | "Dining At Magic Life"

The hotel is all-inclusive and, unlike some of the others I have stayed in, everything is actually included in terms of food. Main meals are taken in the Magico Restaurant which is a buffet. You can have breakfast lunch and dinner in there. Breakfast is good and includes everything you would expect; sausages, eggs cooked to order, fruits, yoghurt, cereals, pastries, fresh bread and so on. I found that, after two weeks, it did become a bit samey as it was the same choice every day – it’s up to you to vary it I suppose. Lunch and dinner were similar and included a huge salad station, lots of fresh bread and a wide range of main dishes that are all served from show counters. Dinner offers a bit more vari...Read More

Hotel | "The Rooms"

Quote:
We were on the third floor or our block (number fourteen) there are about twenty rooms in each block spaced over three floors. I’d definitely recommend requesting a third floor room, because they seem to offer much more privacy. However do bear in mind that there are no lifts to higher floors so if can’t use stairs then you will need to be on the ground floor. We had a garden view room which was excellent. I don’t remember being given the option to upgrade to a sea view room, but having now been there, I wouldn’t bother. As the highest rooms are only on the third floor, much of the view of the sea is obscured by the tall palm trees, even if you are right at the front of the resort by the beach. The ot...Read More

Hotel | "Location and First Impressions"

Naqb Bay, where the Club Magic Life Resort is located, is about twenty minutes away from Naama Bay (which is the main resort in Sharm El Sheikh) and it is closer to the airport. It is just a fifteen minute transfer from the airport, which is great for getting there quickly, but also means that the hotel is pretty much under the flight path. It’s not a massive problem as the flights aren’t continual throughout the day but there do seem to be busy periods where the planes overhead are quite low and quite loud. You can get a shuttle bus from the hotel to Naama Bay for five Euros return and the fairly new Soho Square is about ten minutes away in a taxi. The hotel price for a taxi to Soho Square is 15 Euro...Read More
