I have been here a couple of times now in different areas and different hotels and love it. For the upmarket trip their is a gorgeous hotel called the Ritz Carlton, it is 5 star luxury and you really feel it. Clean, well maintained beautiful ground and quality rooms with great service. This has its own beach many pools restaurants bars and more. Also an on site dive centre, this is why I visited, it has now changed hands so I cannot review it but when I went it was brilliant. I have also visited a cheaper more budget type hotel, the ramada plaza, recently as i choose to spend a month their diving. This was cheaper, not so clean, the food left a ...

Went here last year for a nice break to get away from uni after i had finished. I wish i could say i reccomend it, but i cant. Everyone there just seems to be trying to get as much money out of you as possible. Including the hotel staff. Be prepared to argue, get leered at, perved upon and harassed. They do not know what no means and will try to rip you off on every occasion. The theme tune to my holiday was the constant beeping of horns from the taxi drivers, who are easily the worst con artists that sharm el sheikh has to offer. Ask around first to see how much it should cost to get to places, otherwise they will try to charge you ... Read the complete review

I booked Egypt as I had heard quite a few good reports of the newly developed tourist resorts, and it was ideal weather in January. We stayed in Sharm El Shaikh and booked our holiday through Thomas Cook. First impressions were quite good the airport seemed very clean and was a pleasure to see when we arrived. Whilst travelling to our hotel you can see the amount of building work that is being done, hotels are shooting up everywhere! We took a trip out into the dessert which I would highly recomend! Seeing the rural side to the country is such an eye opener and you have an amazing sense of calm when you are standing there ... Read the complete review

I've recently returned from my first trip to Sharm el Sheikh with mixed feelings so though i'd write a quick review of it. We booked a week long trip with Thomas Cook for about £550 each, all inclusive which i thought was a great deal. Location: We stayed in the Concorde Beach Hotel in Sharks Bay. There are 4 other resorts along that particular bay, each with its own private beach. There's not alot else to do there outside the hotel in Sharks Bay, there is a small restaurant/shopping area called Soho Square which has a few decent restaurants and some shops. Other than that most hotels put on a free shuttle bus to Naama Bay where there's alot ... Read the complete review

I recently went on Holiday and stayed in the resort of Naama Bay Sharm el Sheikh. I was very excited as we got a fantastic deal, we paid £482.50 each for a week all inclusive including in-flight meals and transfers with Thomas Cook. With the recession many people are opting to go to non eu countries and Egypt seems to be more popular than ever. ***Weather*** HOT! HOT! HOT! ***Hotel*** We stayed at the 4 star Tropitel Naama Bay and you couldn't ask for a better situated hotel. As soon as you walked out the doors everything is on your doorstep. The complex was huge and has 4 pools, but you have to get up early to get a sunlounger. For a ... Read the complete review
