This place is in a great setting if you want to make the most of Sharm’s holiday vibe. It’s only a few minutes’ walk to the epicentre, Naama Bay, which is packed with shops, bars and restaurants.
Then there’s the beach to consider. This part of Egypt is known for its clear waters teeming with fish and coral. The hotel has its own private stretch, where you’ll find soft sands and a multi-coloured reef. It’s a great spot for snorkelling and diving.
Closer to home, you’ve got the hotel’s pool scene. There’s a large, lagoon-shaped pool, plus 2 smaller ones with a swim-up bars. What’s more, children have a pool to themselves. Loungers and raffia sun shades frame the pools.
On the subject of food, you can look forward to pile-your-plate buffets at the main restaurant. The menu’s made up of international flavours. Or there’s an à la carte restaurant specialising in Italian dishes. Rounding things off is the lobby bar.
As for the bedrooms, they’re housed in low-rise whitewashed buildings that surround the pool. Creams and vanillas dominate the colour scheme, with bursts of colour coming from the bold red and orange soft furnishings. Extras include balconies, which overlook the pool area.

This is a late review for which I apologise. The hotel is staffed by wonderful people and Mahmoud , the rep, is one of the best reps we have ever had. It was incredibly hot at the end of July but towards the end of the week we were beginning to acclimatise. We had a room around the lower quiet pool and it was brilliant at nights for undisturbed sleep. The pool has music playing but its not too loud but we preferred the quiet pool on the other side of the resort with the chinese pagoda bar with no music. You can walk to the waterpark. If you go to the service road between the two sections of the resort and turn right you can walk to the top of the hill and pay at the door. This is a lot cheaper than paying for an organised trip. The drinks were all ok with brandy being the best of the spirits but they are served in small cups. We are not big beer drinkers so this wasn't a big issue to us but it might be an idea to bring your own larger non glass vessel if you are. Water is freely available The food was excellent and my wife and I are vegetarian. We only had two days where we had to resort to potatoes and salad and there were many vegetarian dishes served throughout the week. If you were vegan there would be a problem. Our son who is not veggie really enjoyed the food. Everywhere is kept spotlessly clean from the rooms to the public areas although there is some "tattiness" in the furniture. Its a moderate walk to the beach. Cross the road, turn right and look for the Hilton and you can walk through its grounds, turn right at the bottom and VIVA beach is on your left about a 1/4 of a mile along. The beach is quite nice. Do not go into any perfume shops. This is very important. We only went on one trip and that was a day spent snorkelling over the coral reefs which was just incredible and something I would like to do again. The food on the boat was great too. We loved this place, it was clean, food was great, drinks were ok and the staff were out of this world.More
excellent value &relaxing hotel
We stayed at the tropicana for 10 days mid november.From the time we arrived we were made to feel special nothing was too much trouble for the staff they were all extremly polite and attended to your every need.The hotel is very large and parts were closed off due to lack of holidaymakers because of the troubles in cairo.The rooms were cleaned to a very high standard daily and some amazing towel arrangements were provided by the daily cleaner The pool was cleaned daily and the pool bar served drinks and snacks daily till 5 pm.The restaurant was fairly large with indoor and outdoor seating,the food was varied and plentiful one could always find something to eat if the main choices were not to your liking.The dining room staff led by Walleed were excellent you were seated at a table of your choice and they were only to happy to serve you food and drinks--- also during your meal they checked that all was ok and topped up drinks constantly. i would recommend this hotel and will be happy to discuss any questions you have better rooms can be found around the quiet pool ground floor rooms2101- 2110 are the best getting all day sunshine.More
