4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

This was the first time we had been to sharm and it was booked as a last minute winter break. When we got to the hotel we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who upgraded us to a sea view room as he considerd us to be special as we were one of the few brits staying there, this was the first warning sign! our room was lovely with a good view of the jetty and sea, 24 hr movie channel in english which was a bonus too! We decided to go and have some dinner as it was about 8pm it was then we discovered the place was predomitably catering for russian guests, as i have now been made aware sharm is a hot spot for russian tourism. The waiters seemed very glad to see us as we actually said please and thankyou!!!! I couldnt say anything bad about any of the staff they were all lovely and made us feel very special. Best tips about sharm;1. stay clear of naama bay before 9pm or go to SOHO square which is a new entertainment centre -very clean and modern lots of nice restaurants and shops, reminded me of being somewhere almost like the states or london 2. invest in a snorkle and mask you see just as much fish jumping off the jetty at the hotel as you would on a trip, the corals are amazing, id go as far as to say the best in the world.

Synopsis of a stay at Coral Beach Rotana Tiran – Sharm El Sheikh


15th to 26th January 2012 – (All inclusive) at the 4 star Coral Beach Rotana Tiran,
Sharks Bay, Sharm El Sheikh – Egypt

My wife Sue and I arrived at Sharm El Sheikh Airport in the evening of 15th Jan 2012. The following day we were joined by our friends from Manchester Jay, Sini & their 5 year son Rishi. On arrival the weather was pleasant with a bright blue sky. A twenty minute ride we soon found ourselves at reception, registration was quick and all formalities were completed in just a few minutes.

As the room we was allocated was some distance away at the far end of the complex, we together with our luggage were taken by electric buggy along the hotels perimeter roadway. On entering the room the sea view was staggering.

The room & balcony were spacious, simply furnished with tea & coffee making facilities, a 32” flat screen television with a variety of channels which included CNN, BBC, RT and a number of Arabic news channels, National Geographic and a variety of entertainment channels and also movie channels Arabic and English. There was also a hair drier, excellent shower with 24 hour running hot water. Basic toiletries like shampoo and soap. Also provided was an in room digital safe.

We had a surprise as the room boy demonstrated his artistic skills by making various birds utilising the towels & bougainvillea petals! Daily the room was cleaned prepared and of cause there were different birds, crocks & monkeys for us! We enjoyed this very much.

The complex was quite spread out and well designed, the down side were a series of steps to reach rooms, beach and of cause the main restaurant. So it’s down to ascent and descent which will not be suitable for those with walking difficulties. Guests can request a room floor level by the Mermaid restaurant. This should be done prior to booking. Alternatively, the management would be pleased to offer the buggy service 24 x 7 which is reliable.

The following morning we explored all the hotels facilities including the private beach which was a short walk from our room, there is also a bar located here. The approach to the beach was via series of embankments, steps and slopes all at different levels, as were to reach the main restaurant and lounge facilities bar etc. There were bars by each of the 4 swimming pools. Only one pool is heated during the winter period. The water is extremely cold in all the other pools and only but the brave would venture in! The main lounge bar has live music nightly.

After a few days we were able to make a fair evaluation of the quality of food & choice. The service was always impeccable! I would summarise this by saying a 4 star hotel with a 5 star menu. There was just one dinner when this slipped a bit but all in all excellent. The restaurant was almost oval in shape more accurately sphere. From the entrance across the other side approximately 25 meters in diameter, was very spacious which also accommodate an inner circle of tables. The self surface buffet was aside and there was also daily barbeques outside with a variety of plans. Tables and chairs were also set up in a large patio area adjacent to the restaurant.

All the staff took well care of guests who made our stay satisfying and comfortable. They all worked extremely hard and one can only put this down to the forefront management like Mr Islam Shahin (Front Office Manager) Mr Khaled Ali Oun (Asst.food & Beverage Manager) Mr Anwar Ghoneem (Outlet Manager F&B) Mohamed Hussein (Captain Head Waiter) The Chefs and countless others who excelled themselves throughout our stay. In order to ascertain the aforementioned I paid very close attention to the important details of work performed by these individuals. It’s also important to say that there were many others if not all, who worked equally hard but one cannot mention each by name.

All in all the important thing is to concentrate on what makes this hotel and their staffs stand out. I think I have been able to establish that. I really feel if the management is on board and taking and interest not only with guests, but with the staff too. This is the formula for outstanding service this is what we got. Wednesday nights were Egyptian nights and the waiters and staff dressed up and entertained the guests. The menu was also Arabic with a variety of specialities. Above is head waiter Mohamed Hussein with little Rishi!

All the swimming pools had an abundant of sun beds and were manned by enthusiastic lads which could not do enough for the guests. The pools were all cleaned and swept for debri early each morning as are all the hotels grounds which were tastefully landscaped.

A free shuttle bus left the hotel each morning at 11.00 for Naama Bay returning at 1.00pm. The taxi cab return fare from the hotel to downtown Naama bay was about $16 (LE 96) and to all Sharm $20 (LE120) There was no additional cost to return to pick up passengers from each of the destinations. Here the mini bus arrives to take guests to Naama bay.



The beach staff are eager to please as is this stranger on the beach who seemed to relish his time with the Russian ladies…. Concluding all in all a well run hotel with excellent staff & good food. Below is a summary and ratings from 1 to 10…….





Front Office Management ………. 09 Excellent
Waiters .……… 10 Outstanding
Restaurant & Food . ……… 09 Excellent
Head Waiters ………. 10 Outstanding
Pools Staff ………. 09 Excellent
Red Wine ………. 02 Poor
White Wine ………. 06 Moderate
Beer ………. 06 Moderate
Spirits ………. 01 Very Poor
Service in bars ………. 09 Excellent
Room boy ………. 09 Excellent
Chef’s attitude ………. 09 Excellent
Recommendations:-

Free high speed internet in Lobby. Chargeable in rooms and other locations. The internet is chargeable at present and as I see it is not worth using as it may be very slow. If the management is to provide a free Wi-Fi service it has to be high speed or else nobody would use it even if free.

All in all a well run hotel so congratulations to all concerned

The only positive part of my staying was the size and the location of my room. The room size was big enough to make the stay pleasant beside the flaws of the hotel. I was also assigned a room that faced the water, with a nice balcony with a table and chairs. Unfortunately anytime I had to go back to the parking lot to the get the car it would take me 10 minutes to get there. It is perhaps a fine layout for people that will enter the resort just to exit the day of their departure, but if you are an independent traveler, then is not really a great base in Sharm El Sheik.
By all means stay away from the internet service at the resort, without even keeping in count the really outrageous price of their connection cards, the speed is really slow, and the signal is intermittent. I got disconnected after few minutes of using the cards, and after few tries I gave up and went back few hours later to find out that my 2 hours card expired! Obviously I called the concierge to inquiry about this, but they had no clues, they kept saying that the internet worked, and when I asked for a replacement card they refused. I went to Vodafone and purchased a Broadband USB Stick, which was cheaper and worked! I never got refunded for the 2 hours card purchased and never used.
The next day I found a big roach in the toilet, I called and someone arrived to check my room, but by then the roach left and went to the next room sliding under a connecting door. Hopefully I had taken a picture of the roach or the staff would have left without doing nothing! But they did something, probably they sprayed some heavy duty roach killer product because the next morning right outside my door I found 4 dead big roaches!! I was so disgusted that I could not take any pictures!
During all my misadventures, the manager on site, Mohamed Farouk (at least that is what he said his name was), it wasn't just not helpful, but not even cordial or friendly but totally rude!
The breakfast wasn't very appealing with very little variety and options.
Full of russian guests.
20 minutes away from Naama Bay night life and restaurants area, and 40 minutes from the Old Market (which I liked better over Naama Bay).
Overall extremely disappointed!

Stayed at this resort in January 2012 and this place is really good and all the staff are so friendly and nothing is to much for them. The food in the main restaurant is amazing, you can get a big plate full and eat everything. The views on the beach are amazing. The resort is full of Russians but don't let that put you off. There are stairs at the resort but there are also ramps for people who have working difficulties. I would full recommend this hotel and will be back sometime in the future
