The Sea Garden Resort is part of the Sea Group, this consists of the Sea Club - Sea Life and where we stayed, Sea Garden, Nabq Bay. A small and quiet 180 room complex situated on the same site as the other two, you may use the other two hotel facilities including eating in the restaurants and participating in activities.
This is a lovely hotel for relaxing & chilling out place where the staff are absolutely brilliant & so funny, also cannot do enough for you. Our room was upgraded to a suite and was so very very clean with towels and linen changed daily.
The food we had was extremely good and cooked thoroughly, although we had a rotated 10-day theme night in the restaurant there was'nt enough variety, that may not be a bad thing as we did'nt come home stuffed, cakes are great though!. What was great for a change was that there were NO chips on offer in the restaurant at any of the meal times, if you wanted chips you could have a poolside snack of burgers/hotdogs/pizza & chips between 1230 - 1430 every day.
There was light entertainment each evening in the small lobby bar which was surpringly good, it was also available in the other two hotels plus an Amphitheatre called Moulon Rouge.
The jetty was a nice walk and you could snorkel off the end, the added bonus was that you could walk out from your sunbed for less than 100 metres and snorkel over the coral reef as an alternative, it was absoluely breathtaking and the fish were fantastic, never to be forgotten experience. I could not believe a report I had read about the poor Coral Reef & the fish in the Nabq Bay area, this is absolute nonsense as far as our reef is concerned, it is 5*.
The whole site was fabulous and a well lit good walk could be had each evening. We visited Old Market in Sharm which was colourful and OK but if you don't like persistant shopkeepers then it is not for you.
On the other hand, and only 7-minutes away by hotel taxi there is Soho Square, (see Mike in Sea Life reception and book a taxi for 100LE both ways) this is a year old up market shopping and live entertainment area built by the Savoy hotel & is brilliant, they are not allowed to harass you so even wandering in/out of the shops is a joy.
This is our 3rd trip to Egypt and has been extremely good & relaxing with no problems at all. This is perfect for couples but not much to do for kids. It was around 38C - 44C during the day and about 30C - 35C at night, it is lovely and dry heat so not uncomfortable.
I would also likme to say that there is a mis-conception about having a problem tummy in Egypt. In the main the problem is not with the food butis the extreme heat that we are not use to and when you poor cold liquid into a hot body you will, if you are unlucky get cramps which can lead to gastro problems.
Drink plenty of liquid but let it warm a little first, and no ice. If you do have an incline that there is a problrm coming on the go to the pharmacist and buy an anti-bacterial product call Antinal, a 3-day course of tablets that will put you back on track within hours.
Please do not let the stories of tummy problems put you off as is a fantastic country, just do your research and use common sense.
