Sharm El Sheikh and the surrounding area have one of the greatest concentrations of hotels in Egypt, with all-inclusive resorts being the standard rather than the exception. For anyone serious about pinching their pennies, it’s wise to continue on to Dahab.

Pre-booking & Combo-packages

Be advised that hotel prices in Sharm are subject to wild fluctuations depending on the number of tourists in town. Walk-in guests are rare and generally get charged a much higher rate than those who prebook. The smaller dive-centric hotels often offer good-value room-and-dive-package combo deals, while the luxury resorts, despite high rack rates, sell their rooms at much cheaper prices through online hotel booking sites and European travel agencies.
