    March / April 2011 Holiday Help

    Hi People,

    I am looking for a week away somewhere from mid March - early April 2011.

    Would like some assistance with where to go for a HOT beach holiday for a young couple. Not looking to spend a fortune and would rather get something booked up early than waiting for late deals.

    Anyone have any ideas, budget is around £300 per person.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the tips, if anyone else has any suggestions please let me know.

    Currently looking like Egypt at the moment, found a great deal for early March :P

    Egpyt. Hurghada or Luxor rather than Sharm. I've been to Luxor (no beaches though) - went in June and it didn't drop below 40C in the day every day for two weeks! You're better off getting a late deal though, if you can.

    Would love to have something booked up so I know its something to look forward to.

    Anyone been Egypt in early March?

    Rep left for those repliers.

    I went to Egypt in March on a last minute deal in march. £345 each. Better booking last minute as this place is mega to book in advance. Luxor is hot but as said earlier no beach.

    No, but I can recommend the hotel we stayed at - the Steigenberger Nile Palace. It was brilliant! Rooms cleaned and linen changed daily, marble bathrooms, air con so powerful you'd get a chill! The food was INCREDIBLE! Breakfast included fresh fruits, yoghurts, bread, pastries, cooked food - all really tasty! Dinner was beyond words... Every night there were around 25-30 freshly made cakes and gateauxs all done in house! They had themed nights - American, Chinese, Italian etc and the range was brilliant!
    The pool was fairly small but in March they won't be that busy so it won't be a problem. There's also a mini pool perfect for sitting in and reading a book! Loads of sunloungers and a bar by the pool too. Loungers on the nile as well so you can sit out and watch the sunset! They've got other restaurants inside the hotel too including Thai and Italian, and a few little shops!

    lol, I'm not going to book it till nearer the time, so I wont take all the places :w00t:
    I'm just interested to see what sort of hotel you can get for around the £300 - £400 mark. I like my luxury

    I was getting confused. Hope you both find a good deal.

    Have a look at the hotel I mentioned, looks extremely good for the price.

    Been to Turkey recently and that is my backup plan if Egypt falls through, again thanks for the suggestion.
