Help me choose a hotel!

I am a first time visitor to Sharm El Sheikh with my husband and 2 daughters 17/19 years old. We are hoping to travel at the beginning of July, and am having trouble choosing a hotel that will suit all our needs.

Can anyone suggest a hotel where Mum & Dad are happy to relax, whilst our daughters are happy to do that during the day, but would like something a little bit more lively in the evening, either at the hotel or nearby bars etc.

your first time and going in july , you must like it hot. been 4 times to sharm we found dont be tight you get what u pay for, but stay as close to naama bay as the kids ? adults realy. can walk into town and you can chillout on the beach, i would reccomend hilton waterfall never stayed there but the reveiws are good , its on the beach ,walking distance of naama bay,

and it looks amazing, as we used to look over the fence in envy.

make sure you pick a hotel that is on the beach or beach front as a lot of the hotels are a bus ride away by shuttle bus and can be 30 mins away, so the last thing you want after a day on the beach is to be squeezed into a mini bus for the trip back to the hotel

Ditto, find one that's in Na'ama Bay:


Jolie Ville Resort & Casino (don't do AI tho)

Hilton Fayrouz next door (also don't so AI)



Iberotel Lido.

2 of the AI hotels that maybe worth considering, even tho they are a taxi ride / shuttle bus away by about 10 mins into Na'ama are Jolie Ville Golf & Sultan Gardens.
