Sharm El Sheikh is just 'OK'.
I wouldn't say its a bad resort, but it didn't really grip me.
The hotel we stayed in was very nice and we were right on some of the best coral reef in the region, so diving / snorkelling was fantastic.
The bars and restaurants were all OK, but you do get hassled a fair bit which puts you off.
Its a pretty featureless place overall - but if you get out into the surrounding area its a little more interesting.
If you want a holiday where you're just based at a decent hotel for a few days or you just want to go diving for a few days then its a good, relatively inexpensive destination. But if you want more Id try somewhere else like Dahab which is slightly better and has slightly more of a 'soul'
