I have been to Sharm many times, for the diving. I have stayed in many hotels. This is one I shall not stay in again. The breakfast was not great, compared with other hotels. The room was dirty and, although I was given clean towels each day, no cleaning was done. One night, at about midnight, an enormous piece of loud machinery, like a generator, was placed right outside my door and left to blast away for ages. I phoned reception to complain and it was turned off. Then the person from reception knocked on my door ( by now about one in the morning). I did not open the door, so he phoned my room about 10 minutes later just as I was finally falling asleep, to ask if it was now all O.K. Some of reception staff very unhelpful. Some reception staff inappropriate in their manner and also unable to answer most basic inquiries. I won't go back there.
Great Holiday, weather fantastic,hotel great, staff really friendly and helpful whatever you need just ask, rep Gad, excellant friendly and helpfull. Will return to this hotel and also reccommend to others.
Sharm El Sheikh - A very good holiday resort. However, only one good beach; Naama Bay. The other beaches were very rocky or of coral and uncomfortable. Even Naama Bay's beaches were mostly hotel-owned and not open for public use - except for a payment!
The Old Market at Sharm El Sheikh is a MUST visit. El Mercato too.
The Tropicana Tivoli is a nice "three-star" hotel. Good food but monotonous as the menu wasn't changed for the whole of the fortnight! The staff member responsible for the swimming pool was always cadging, especially from alone visiting elderly ladies! The bedrooms were comfortable and kept in a good state of tidiness and cleanliness and the staff were mostly very polite and friendly. Especially the restaurant staff.
We were mis-sold an excursion - Red Sea cruise - by Gad, the Thomson rep. He promised a private VIP cruise with only about 20 passengers on a 40-passenger ship with lunch and drinks. Plenty of room for everyone to enjoy themselves and do a little snorkeling!
Instead of this, we were pushed onto a larger ship with about 40 passengers and too much snorkeling. The "drinks" consisted of a crew member coming round from time to time with a large plastic bottle of Coca Cola!
All things considered, an enjoyable holiday and I would visit the Tropicana Tivoli again. Thanks to Lauren of Thomsons Travel, London Road, Brighton for all her advice and help.
