sharm or hurghada

Hi ya,

Considering either Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada as an option for a holiday next year,was wondering if anyone had been to both,and what(if any) the main differences are.

Also when is the best time to go,hoping for temperatures around the late 20's early 30's.

I see all the hotels look lovely and we are looking for an excellent 4/ 5 star all inclusive(no hidden extra costs for meals,drinks ect)

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hurghada is amazing and the weather in March / May will be great.

I am an egyptian , ive been to both lots of times. If you're going for the beach and the sun only, go to hurghada. Sharm also has a nice beach but hurghada's is better. But sharm has better outings, bars, clubs, atmosphere. I myself am going to sharm on the 18th of jan !

We like both having been to both sharm and hurghada..hurghada is more quieter than sharm,Makady bay is a nice place to stay in hurghada.The weather will be nice and hot.
