Sharm El Sheikh is just 'OK'.
I wouldn't say its a bad resort, but it didn't really grip me.

The beach is a short walk... (read more)

SHARM EL SHEIKH is a relatively new Asian resort situated on the tip of the Sinai peninsular between the Gulf of Suez and the Gulf of Arabia and is approximately 320 minutes flying time from Bristol International Airport - one of several U.K. airports connecting to this resort.
The resort's airport is located approximately 20 minutes drive from a resort which effectively comprises several thousand acres of imported very fine gravel laid over rock, with the entire district surrounded by... (read more)
