Club Azure  

Loading

The Club Azure, formerly called the Tropicana Azure Club, is in the centre of Nabq Bay surrounded by a selection of shops and restaurants. It's just a ten-minute walk from a sandy beach that's shared with its sister hotel, the Grand Azure. You get full use of the Grand Azure's beach bar, too. And in terms of what else there is to do, snorkelling is really popular – there’s a long jetty that juts out into the sea.

Back at the hotel, the swimming pool is the main talking point. It's huge and snakes its way under wooden bridges and around feature rocks. There's also a separate section of the pool for children, and a playground for little ones.

At mealtimes, the main buffet restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. And there’s an Italian and Chinese à la carte if you want a change of scene.

Excellent place-don't listen to grumpy racist reviews!

I'm currently writing this review from the hotel,as we leave tomorrow and I'm sure I won't have time afterwards. I'm reading the other reviews and I'm just thinking 'did I stay in the same place as some of these people'? Haha well of course I did but I'm going to spare you all the grumpy stuff! Honestly people are blaming the hotel because they got bitten by Mosquitos!? Or because their was a mosquito in the lobby? Because the sun sets at 5pm or because they have to share a hotel complex with Russian and Arab holiday makers?? SERIOUSLY if these things bothered you then I believe you should go back to Britain and stay there! It's one thing to write a review about a hotel it's another to be racist. This hotel is great. We have really enjoyed it here. The staff are SO helpful the waiter Mohamed is the best always looking out for you. The animation team are lots of fun always try to get you to join in and get you in the mood. I found the swimming pool to be in overly good condition, yes there is paint worn away here and there but it does not affect the pool in anyway. Sun beds were easy to come by though we prefer the beach and went there most days and used the swimming pool in the afternoons. Lunch is availed on the beach although there was a set menu of 4 things it was still good food. We got to know the staff there and felt very respected by them. There is a coral reef at the end of the long pier which we went to most days, it's amazing and I highly recommend it. The staff on the pier will not let you take any shells or broken coral as we saw many people trying to do. We also saw in low tide 5 lion fish under the slabs of concrete under the pier and twice we saw Napoleon fish in the coral as well as puffers, Picasso fish, all butterfly fish, parrot fish and loads more Evening entertainment is offered and can be anything from dance shows to fire shows which my son loved. We found the food to be surprisingly good we all ate very well here and will probably come home a stone heavier! There's a range of dishes offered and a theme every night though sometimes we went out to eat (KFC and mcdonalds down the road) I found our room to be clean but the shower would need re grouting. My only complaint about our room would be the blurred glass on the bathroom wall, I really don't understand why, I didn't want my son spying on me in the shower and on the toilet!! Drinks were good, cups are on the small side to prevent waste, because after all people do take the piss out of all inclusive. My only real complaint is not about the hotel but the other guests, yes the Russians can be rude, but why don't you tell them so? 'Excuse me I was waiting first' goes along way. Most of the Russian speak English. Another was the British couple (adults) taking the piss out of a disabled boy and other Brits joining in...also the Brits complaing about food but getting up to get more of the food they complain about? Very strange...also when the Arabs arrived for easter holidays the Brits seemed to get very hostile and racist, (especially when the Muslim girls swim in their all in one swim like suits, which are not their clothes, they are swimming clothes)even more strange if you didn't like Arabs or Egyptians why come to Egypt!! Although we did meet a Russian couple who said they were embarrassed by some of the other Russians. Overall I'd rate this hotel 5/5 More

Fab holiday

Have just returned from our holiday and have to say that our experience was a good one .i travelled with my two daughters who loved the place and would gladly return.. Sure the pool could do with a lick of paint but it was safe and clean. The rest of the hotel was clean and tidy and the staff worked hard to keep it that way. The entertainment was as expected a bit on the corny side but ok and the location makes it easy to get out and about. Staff were great and really made our holiday and the food was better than some hotels I've stopped in..there is quite a bit of building work in the surrounding area and the Egyptian desert isn't exactly like paradise so if you want a decent view then get a room with a pool view. Nothing much else to say than we wish we were waking up there this morning.....More

Great holiday

Have to get up early to sunbathe as sun is gone by 4pm. Lovely private beach, if you tip the waiter he will bring you drinks all day. Lovely resort but was a bit windy for us to enjoy everything. Wifi in lobby but that was where the Mosquitos were. Food was good. Entertainment and trips to go on Enjoyed this holiday. Used spa this was excellent recommend to use on first day and fitness centre goodMore

Now called 'Tirano Azure Club'

Just back from a two week stay and would have happily stayed for another month. This was our third time there in three years and we'll be going back next year, all being well. We were in breakfast by 7.00, on the bus for the 5 minute ride to the beach opposite (at the bigger, shabbier sister hotel, the Tirano Grand Azure) and on the beach by 8.10. With a breeze coming off the sea, it's perfect for sunbathing. The sea is warm, shallow and yet full of life, with a very unpredictable tide. You'll need beach shoes when paddling (£3 in the beach shop). Food, drinks, shisha pipes and camel rides are all there if you want them, and the Desert Rose dive centre. Go with mask and snorkel and search under the pier; you'll find moray eels, puffer fish, angel fish, parrot fish, lion fish, trunk fish and so much more; walk to the end of the pier, go out to the drop-off and you'll find the most beautiful reef, teeming with life and even bigger fish. In the shallows just before the reef starts you'll see plenty of large, colourful surgeon fish. The last bus back leaves at 5.30, so you can stay all day if you want to, as we did. Back at the Azure Club, hospitality is paramount; the staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. There are some great characters in the restaurant and the array of food for all three meals of the day is stunning. My wife has certain food allergies, so chef Ahmed cooked for us both personally and we felt like royalty. The rooms are more than big enough, with lovely big walk-in showers, with enough room for a beach volleyball team! In spite of what some reviews say, the pool was very clean and plenty big enough for some decent swimming. As for negative points, barely any; but we could do without the techno music played on occasions round the pool and the man who will try to sell you his perfumes in his shop just off the main foyer, who must have been a slippery eel in a previous life. If you need a chemist or medical advice, go over the road to the pharmacist there. He knows his stuff and will charge considerably less than the hotel doctor. Don't be surprised if he recommends an injection in the backside for your ailment; it's the done thing, and much preferable to suppositories which are all the rage in Spain, for example.More

Disgusting pool

For all the families who have saved hard to come here if the swimming pool is important to you i would consider changing hotels before you arrive here. We moved after 4 days, but not before the rep tried to charge us £581 to move, thanks to the manager we were moved to the grand azure for free, but some people did move and had to pay. Our booking said twin room with garden view, we were put in a kingsize, which was nice but on the highest floor with a tiny balcony overlooking a road where they are doing building work. Also where the staff go up and down a cobbled road with a metal trolley at 6am every morning and it did wake us up. We told youseif that my husband was struggling with the stairs ( no lift ) as he has just had a tummy op 3 weeks before we came but it was only when i went to the front desk myself that they moved us straight away to a lovely ground floor room. Went for breakfast the next morning and that was our first experience fighting off the flies, eating as quick as possible so that we could get out of there. Awful. There are flies everywhere, not just in the dining room but all over the hotel and pool area. Obviously management can not help that sharm has a lot of flies around at the moment but there must be something they can do as other people we met on trips werent having that problem in their hotels. I also had over 70 mosquito bites, first time ive ever been bitten that much, been to sharm 8 times before and i always use the off spray. Management need to spray the garden areas with repellent for the mozzies and get automatic doors so that lobby doors arnt left open, this could cut down on the flies in the dining room. The food was average to good but the dining experience ruined by flies. The only entertainment during the day we saw around the pool was one girl who did 1 dance to 1 song every morning, never saw her do anything else so what a good job she has lol. The team were busy playing their taste in music ( very loud offensive rap lyrics ) and playing on a pool table next to the swimming pool, showing off to the young girls, they did play a darts game but that was it. The swimming pool is a disgusting mess. The paint has flaked off you are treading on rough concrete, lots of sharp cracks in it, and even though they say its treated and its ok there was no way i was going in it. Its not just the flaking paint, it is dirt , i put my foot into an area of the pool in the shallow end just to check and the dirt clouded the water. It is so sharp in places you would need water shoes. Even if its treated bits could go in kids ears etc and cause an infection. This needs closing and re surfacing. There is one other tiny pool but way to small and not enough sunbeds for more than a handful of guests. I feel so bad for all the families who are saving and looking forward to sitting by the pool while their kids play in it. We spoke to the manager who said it would need closing for 45 days to fix, so i thought ok then why havnt you done exactly that over the winter. The hotel was taken over on 1st of april by another hotel group, so maybe this is why. Management have told us that this hotel and the grand across the road (where we were moved to ) are going to be updated by new owners. Hope that this is done as hotels are in great location, just shameful condition. Maybe in a couple of years they will be worth another look. If you want to go to the beach from this hotel it is a walk across the road and through the grand azure to get to it, they do provide a bus to take you if u need it, you get a pass from reception to give to the gate men at the grand. This hotel provides free shuttle bus service to and from naama bay. Also we were unable to snorkel off the jetty, the jetty is the longest in sharm, but its so shallow you have to still walk over the corals to get deep enough water to swim in, lots did and there were lots of injurys as the coral and rocks are dangerous to walk on and several times walking down the jetty there were drips of blood from guests who did, as everyone knows we should not be walking on corals anyway as it will destroy them, we were told the jetty is going to be widened but can not be lengthened due to laws, so its still not going to be great for snorkelling off. As for the rep, Youseif, he asked us to pay the extra for moving and said that there was nothing else thomson could do, even when i said it is not as advertised, the pool is unusable. It was the manager who helped us to move not thomson. So to all going, be ready to pay extra or take water shoes and enter the pool at your own risk. Management were very good to us, moving our room to a lower floor, having a private chat about our complaints and then moving us for free. Other families were charged, that should not have happened, so if any family has been charged and wants to get in touch with us if we can help support you to claim your money back we will gladly do so.More
