My girlfriend & I have just spent a great 3 nights at Sinai Old Spices.
We stayed in the Saffron Room, it had everything we'd need, a huge bed, great bathroom and a kitchen area with a fridge, hot plate, toaster, kettle, coffee, sugar, cups, plates etc. Breakfast was yoghurt, toast & fruit juice left for you to have as and when you feel.We didn't need it in January but the room had air-con, it was also equipped with a TV that could pick up satellite channels.
Sinai Spices is a 10/15 minute drive or so from both Old Sharm and Naama Bay, out in an old Bedouin town nestled underneath a hill so you are by no means in the thick of it. The place has a fantastic roof terrace, we spent a good few hours catching some sun / reading up there.
Desi provided us with a mobile phone so we could call a taxi to take us where we needed to go. It would add up if you were going in and out of town a lot but can't see why you would do that. The driver was extremely polite and a really nice guy. He took us to see the mosque on our way home from Old Sharm one evening.
The owners were lovely and extremely helpful, we got a transfer to and from the place and any questions we had were answered with a smile.
In short, if you're not a resort type of person and you don't mind being a bit out of the way then this is the place for you - we had a great time there and would recommend it.
