POB 71 - Montazah/Ras Nasrani, Sharm el Sheikh 154, Egypt.
Located on a vantage point in Ras Nasrani, 7 km from Sharm El Sheikh airport, the Meliá Sinaí hotel offers first class service and facilities; including an excellent diving school and special facilities for divers. It is set on a private beach facing fantastic coral reefs, you simply have to see for yourself (the only access to the sea is through a 50-meter jetty that goes over the corals), and with spectacular views over the Red Sea and Tiran Island.
We spent our 2-wk vacation/honeymoon in Melia Sinai hotel in December. We are scuba divers so it was a perfect location for us, they have a dive shop with the most friendliest crew we've ever met.
Since it was our honeymoon our room was upgraded to a sea view room instead of the pool side room the we booked online through a travel agency. The room was really nice, very clean, organized and spacious.
We have booked the hotel all-inclusive which includes buffet breakfast,lunch and dinner,snacks and all-inclusive drinks.
The beach was rocky that you have to go through a jetty to swim, but they have a lot of sunbeds on the beach with a nice view of Tiran strait. We are mostly busy scuba diving so it was not a problem for us.
The room was really nice ,very clean,organized and spacious. With tv, fridge, comfortable bed, toilette with bathtub, and sea view balcony.

They have buffet breakfast, lunch, snack bar and dinner if you booked all-inclusive. A lot of poeple in tripadvisor who are complaining about the Food, well it was really a repetative menu but not bad at all,with 10-15 dishes every night, you're not fonna be able to try all o fit for one day. They also have different delicious egyptian dishes, seafood barbecue and sweets buffet.
