    • Evening entertainment

      by jv666 Online Now Apr 19, 2015 at 5:41 AM


      we have just returned from our 1st trip to sharm, staying at the coral sea holiday village.
      It was an amazing holiday but the only thing it lacked was adult entertainment in the evenings, i.e. professional shows etc.
      Can anyone tell me if there are any all inclusive hotels in sharm were they do have good evening entertainment so you don't have to venture out of the hotel.

    • Visiting Sharm in June 2015

      by KelvinM1234 Online Now Apr 2, 2015 at 12:27 PM

      Hi Folks I am new to the forum and have had a look around and decided to join up.

      I am travelling to Sharm el Sheikh in June 2015 with my partner, her child and her childs friend.

      I have a few questions regarding the weather, medical facilities and general hospitality currency etc.

      I understand the temperature will be 38 degrees if not higher, is there any advice on avoiding the sun midday etc and keeping hydrated?

      I also hope that during our stay none of us have to use the medical facilities within sharm but if this is the case are they of a good standard?

      Also I have heard differences in opinion of what currency to use US Dollars/Egyptian pound/English pound what is the best one to use?

      Also due to the ongoing conflict which I understand is thousands of miles away I take it the sharm el sheikh resort is under tight security?

      And lastly I am staying at the Tirana aqua park hotel has anyone used this hotel before? it seemed to have good reviews on trip advisor etc and had an aqua park hence the reason we booked it

      Apologies for all of the questions just a bit apprehensive as it's my first visit to Sharm and it looks fantastic and I can't wait to holiday here!

      Can anyone advise on acceptable amounts to tip in Bars / Hotels / Restaurants, also excursion guides and transfer drivers.
      We don't want to offend by giving too little, and don't want to be excessive either.

      I am looking for somewhere quieter, not full of nightclubs etc, with little bit of tradition. Not too small but equally not too large. Preferably not full of children either. Good beach on site and some snorkelling of course. Was told about Dahab, does this fit what i'm looking for?

      Thank you to all that have responded to previous questions. One final one, if I drink tea/coffee in the hotel I presume this is made with boiled tap water, is this safe to drink or should I make my own using bottled water.

      Hello, I am a OAP visiting Sharm in November for the first time, I'm thinking of staying at the Nubian Island hotel 'all inclusive' and wondered if this is suitable as I'd like to relax without a lot of noise. Also, which of the local drinks are best to keep to.

      How far is this hotel from Nabq Bay, Soho Square, Mercato Shopping Arcade and what are the best things to see and do. Also, I'm worried about what to eat and drink to avoid an upset stomach. Yours sincerely, Dave

      Hi, going on the 1st of November for 7 nights, will be booking in the next 2 weeks.

      Have never been so would like to know where I should book for all inclusive and are there any white sandy beaches and if so then where?

      Had a colleague who stayed at the rixos and paid a bit more for a better room and restaurant upgrade. Would this be recommended.

      Been a long year so just want to lie on the beach, am hoping for clear blue water and white sand, is this possible?

      Many thanks
