we have been a few times..Taba and Hurghada, What you looking for? Taba is remote and peaceful but tbh we go for peace! Big hotels are lovely. We stayed in Hilton long beach Hurghada which was lovely. May/June-weather hot-£500 each al inc approx it cost with portland for two weeks.

Are you looking for all inclusive including SCUBA?

i think you need sharm, as its a chill place at Taba although the scuba was fab me o/h said. The sea is clear and beautiful. We are older and have kids so maybe you need an opinion of a younger person?

I go to either sharm or hurghada every year. 16 of us going in march to hurghada and staying at the marriot.
To be honest most of the 5 star hotels are pretty good. try onthebeach holidays (otbholidays) for good deals.
quite a few of the 5 stars are pretty much a good 3 star in the uk. They are awarded stars for different things than here. Check out holidaytruths or tripadvisor for updates from people who have been to the resorts.
The red sea is one of the best diving destinations in the world, you can snorkle if you dont fancy it, but you have got to give it a go in the water. It is quite literally breathtaking. I have been all over the world diving and the red sea is my favourite. beats the seychelles and belize for viz
The top hotels, marriot, hilton, intercontinental etc are all great. the all inclusive deals are also pretty good.
I now prefer hurghada as they have just developed a new town which has some nice restaurants and bars and you get a lot less hassle from the locals there (if you tell them no they usually go away)
For the price, you cant beat it. Great weather, no scallys, no trouble. loads to do - have a go at the quadbiking in the sinai (go in the daylight) brilliant
the place is under 5 hours away and is the nearest tropical sea to us. take some imodium though!
Hope you enjoy

must admit we didnt get upset tummy in taba but the Hilton...well it reeked in the loos in reception-i cant say more-we all had trots. They sell some real cheap tablets though that work right away but i believe they are an antibiotic? if you look holiday truths they discuss it?

oh will say about egypt-dont pay upgrade before you go as they always do cheaper there:)
our £15 a night seaview was £6 there...and we got a suite upgrade free in the hilton.

sharm has casinos, the national go-kart track is there, camel riding. the horse riding in the desert is fantastic. swimming with dolphins, but please dont go to the ones that are in the small pool - quite upsetting. windsurfing, water ski-ing
The camel bar is great, go up to the top and sit on the big cushions and have a look at how clear it is. hard rock cafe is pretty good.
there is loads to do. its also not that far to the pyramids or the spot where moses got the 10 commandments (cant recall the name of the place now)

no problem but read the reviews before booking? get the best accomodation you can. I would imagine your price is average? but prices are a little high i think right now.

The main part of Sharm, Na'ama Bay is rather like some Spanish resorts, so I'd be cautious of going there.
#16
club magic life in sharm...in fact would recomend all the magic life resorts...24 hour booze...excellent food ..wonderful staff...a bit more than some in same place but 5star and great things to do in complex...(through thompsons)
