    People talk about them a lot on MSE.

    I haven't used them or been to Sharm.

    It's a bit marmite... I hated it but friends of mine go back every year (why you'd go back to the same destination is beyong me but that's another point!), I felt it was tad 'blackpooly' for my liking...

    Tis very hot though! :thumbsup:

    i loved it! be warned though, i went in august as well and it was 40 degres in the day and 38 at night, hope you like the heat!

    It's very Westernised, I spent 2 weeks in Egypt (Cairo/Luxor) then had a week doing nothing in Sharm and it was ace. Very hot though as said above, hit 48 degrees in the shade in August when I went!

    Have a read of this … Have a read of this thread.http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/644041/just-booked-holiday-to-sharm-el-she?t=644041



    cheers Deb8z

    I stayed in one of the hotels outside the main 'town' strip. I found it better as we were right on the 'beach' (water atleast ) and we had a free shuttle throughout the day anyway. Depends if you are there for the hotel entertainment of the Sharm night life. Taxi's are cheap if you haggle and always around. Try and find a hotel that has a sister hotel next door. Often if you book in the cheaper one, you can use the facilities of the more expensive one as well. the two that I have been to so far have allowed me access to everything other than the main bar at certain times of the day, and the main buffet restaurant (same food anyway so wasnt any loss!). Another trick I give a go is to go to one of the highstreet travel agents and see what offers they can give me. then take all the info (specifics of who the trip is provided by ) then go home and call the provider directly saying you have been quoted on the highstreet. Each time they have beaten the highstreet deal by £50-100 a person

    it is really hot but to be honest in a few days you start to get used to it, it's a dry heat and it's also quite breezy in sharm so that helps a bit too

    I found it Blackpooly as mentioned above.

    If you want Egypt, try another resort instead - Hurghada (sp?) etc.
