My girlfriend and i spent a week at the Concorde Sport at the end of Novemeber.
We flew with Thomas cook direct from Glasgow and i must admit to some disappointment with their own airline. The legroom compared to Virgin, KLM or even a recent BMI flight to Chicago was non existent. I hadn't been on a plane that had the monitors in the roof rather than seatback in front for years so if you are sitting at the window forget about seeing the movie.

The Concorde Sport is very close to the Airport but its not that busy an airport just now so the noise wasn't too much of a problem.
All the Hotel staff were brilliant and very friendly, they do like the Brits as they at least get a smile and a tip from us. The other guests, the Russians, really weren't friendly and don't wait in line at the bar or food serving area. On the plus slide Russian fashion at the pool is funnier than the Peter Kay book i was reading.

The food is okay at the hotel, and the staff do their best to make sure its always available. The local beer was good although the local wine was more of an acquired taste!
The Hotel amenities are very good, but snorkelling from the jetty at the main hotel was outstanding.

We went into Naama Bay for food a couple of nights. The Lebabnese place next to the Camel Hotel and Bar was great but didn't serve alcohol. I think the meal for two was about £10.
The Camel Hotel and Bar in Naama has a great rooftop bar open from 5pm everyday and is worth a visit. Don't go to Naama Bay if you are expecting a cultural experience, take the trip to Cairo for that.

Overall a great holiday with brilliant weather at this time of year, a much better bet than somewhere like Tenerife.

It would be great to visit that hotel during Luxury Holidays in Sharm el Sheikh.
