We went the last couple of weeks in January and the weather was really bad. Apparently this area of Sharm el Sheikh is known for being very windy. We were unable to sunbathe at all as it was so windy and the wind blew inbetween all the room blocks and it was freezing. People were sat on their sunbeds with towels wrapped round them to keep warm. Not what you excpect from a year round holiday spot. We ended up having to walk up and down the streets to keep warm or stay in the room with the heating on. There is not a lot around so after a few days there is not really anywhere else to go. We booked as a second honeymoon and when arrived were put in in a twin room and not double as booked. Reception said they would move us the next day which we did. The room was lovely and clean. The food was very good. The only downside was the wind which you just could not get out of. The only other problem was that there was nothing going on at night and nowhere to go outside of the hotel. The only place you could go was reception where there was a bar but there were not very many seats and there was no music or tv or anything going on. After 5 days of being cold we approached the rep with a view to going home but she suggested we move hotels. We decided we would give it a try. The Rep said it would cost us £280 to move. She took payment by card then came back and said she had only charged us for 6 nights and we needed to pay for another night which was £20. We paid her cash but she didn't give us a receipt. When we got back we questioned this with Thomson as 7 x £20 is £140 plus £50 admin fee is £190 not £280. They said she had charged us right and that there was nothing they could do about the extra £20 charged as we had not got a receipt and also she was no longer in the resort. Beware of the Reps.
