Sharm was as good as last year. But for me 14 days is maybe slightly too long..

Shopping: Soho: In my mind boring. Naama Bay is good, but you get way better deals in Old Sharm.

Tourist Demograpic: If you for some reasons doesnt like russians, then stay away from Old Sharm.. In Old Sharm it seemed to be 85% russians. Personally I think it is great fun to see how Brits and Russians act and talk about each other, and on the same time act quite the same - at least in "our" hotel - Stella Di Mare.

The only awkward moments I had with other guests at Stella was when one Finnish man decided that he didnt need any real bathing trunks in, but that his white underwear was good enough. Not a nice view..

During my two weeks at Stella, I only saw one drunk man and he was an elderly italian. The hotel staff gently escorted him to his room, no big scenes.

Farez Seafood in Old Sharm is really good. Ended up visiting this restaurant three times during our stay. A feast every time!

Weather: Since I am from Norway, I am happy that it was not warmer. Perfect summer:) Two days with some heavy clouds..

All in all: A great winter vacation.

Donna: The hotel is really good. It was my second stay, and we will consider to go back next year. Food was better than last year, but of course I got a bit bored of it the two last days.. I will write a full review later.

For me it was enough with t-shirt, but my fiancee needed a light jacket. Can be a bit chilly.

What is it with the Russians and the Brits??

We don't mind any nationality as long as they are civil and respect others.

Anyway, about the Fin who took a swim in his undies, just how warm was it when you were there?

Was it jump in the pool to cool off weather, or grit your teeth and take the plunge despite the chilly breeze weather?
