Aqaba or Sharm El Sheil

Has anyone been to both? I would like a relaxed, non-touristic, excellent snorkeling experience. Which location would you choose? Can you recommend the name of hotels with air conditioning?

I've been to Aqaba many times, but have not been to Sharm (though many of my friends have). I love Aqaba - its not as touristed as Sharm -and the snorkellling is incredible. Visibility was unlike anything I'd ever seen (rivalled only by Fiji) The Royal Dive Center just out of town has a private beach from which you can snorkel - and they do good dive / snorkel trips as well.

When I was spending time there, it was very relaxed - almost to the point of not having much to do besides snorkel and lay by the pool reading a book....which sounds really good right about now.

Cant remember where we stayed - I think it was the Aquamarina 2 - which was fine, decent pool, nice staff, ...Cant remeber if there was air con, but I believe there was.
