We arrived at our hotel the first night only to find out that the entire hotel staff was on strike, so they sent us to the hotel next door, Le Meridien Pyramids. It ended up a blessing in disguise as Le Meridien was a nice upgrade over our original hotel.
Security was tight as every car had to be checked out by a bomb sniffing dog prior to entering the grounds.
There was also a metal detector at the door but they never seemed to stop anyone who set the machine off.
Although security was somewhat tight, it never felt as it was needed. We felt very safe throughout the trip and would recommend Egypt to anyone as a great vacation spot.
The entry way was grand and on multiple nights decorated for very loud and elaborate weddings.
Each morning we were treated to an excellent expansive buffet with local specialties mixed with American and European items.
Afternoons were spent pool side with a nice view of the pyramids.
With a little splashing around thrown in for good measure.
Due to the fear that still exists surrounding visiting Egypt there weren't a lot of tourists.
Evenings were spent staring at the pyramids with dinner and drinks
And a little dancing to the duo who sang the 80's all night long.
