Tropicana Rosetta Hotel
Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
We had to get up early today (5am) to catch our flight to Sharm El Sheikh. It was so foggy by our hotel it was almost impossible for the driver to see the road and everyone was driving with their hazard lights on. We got to our hotel, the Hotel Tropicana Rosetta and were surprised to find out that it was an "all inclusive" resort. They gave us …
We slept in late, didn't get up until almost 10am. Now that's vacation! After breakfast we took it easy for a couple hours and decided we wanted to go find a pub. Not just any pub, I mean we can get free beer here at the hotel. We wanted to find an English pub that we read about in the Lonely Planet book. This pub was reported to have "a large …
Today was a banner day for me. Those of you who know my feelings about sharks and water are never going to believe this but after breakfast we went down to the beach for a swim. It's worth mentioning that there have been four people attacked by white tip sharks right where we are. We were even told that the beach was closed yesterday while the …
Arrived in Na'ama Bay to much yelling and bustling by the security people at the Airport. Not much fun! Passed from pillar to post as no-one wanted to give us a visa as we were not with the Thomson group having booked with crystal! The room at the hotel is a long walk with dodgy slopes from the reception area, but we are outside a great pool. Our …

Historical Traveler Reviews Tropicana Rosetta Hotel Sharm El-Sheikh
We stayed at this Hotel on b&b basis in February. The sun shone and the sea was warm enough for snorkelling. We are worldwide travellers with wide experience of standards, and have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel. The service we received was superb and nothing was too much trouble for EL SAYEED our House Keeper. As with most holidays we needed him to sort a couple of problems (hairdryer and bath plug) and this was done immediately. His attentive polite manner was on a par with and probably better than some cruise ship stewards. Likewise the excellent pool attendants ASHRAF and MOY made sure we were comfortable with sunbeds. Breakfasts were most appetising and enjoyable. To enjoy a walk, we ate out most evenings in Sharm so cannot comment on Tropicana restaurants. All in all we had a wonderful time and would say that if you enter into Egyptian culture, the Tropicana would appear to be as good if not better than some of the higher priced hotels. The Hotel Staff are to be congratulated on their handling of luggage especially post holiday. Unlike many they ensure your luggage is collected from your room by Staff, and kept secure until your coach for the airport arrives. Tips are appreciated but there was no hassle for same. Sharm Airport is manic but "go with the - stop and go flow" both entering and leaving Sharm. It is an experience. We will be returning to the Tropicana Rosetta soon.
I liked it
I was in Tropicanna at the end of Feb 2005. And liked it a lot. We got good room on the second floor. I enjoed food.
There were lots of Russian and Italian.
Good beach. Warm weather.
And the best moment was that it located in the middele of Sharm.
On arriving in our room ..we noticed that the wardrobe door didn't open,we had no plugs in the bath or sink and on going to reception found that the door didnt lock.We changed rooms the next day to the one above which did have a nicer view over Naama Bay and the pool,but unfortunatly the 2weeks we were there we hardly ever had any hot water and the shower didnt work...also they took the hairdryer which was never seen again!!
Myself & my best friend stayed in this lovely hotel just last week. We went B&B so we could get out & about during the day/evening & sample the local cuisine. Our breakfasts were superb. Everything you could ever want...our personal favourites were the freshly made-before-your-eyes pancakes with delicious hot chocolate sauce :)
Set 30 metres back from the main road, split into the main complex and an annexe, and next to Emporer Divers (The best dive school in Sharm) the Rosetta is a very reasonable and interesting hotel. Set on a hillside, there are many different levels for this hotel. The hotel is also very spread out. If you aren't keen on walking sometimes long distances depending on where your room is, do not stay here. Some of the hills & steps are pretty steep though assisted wheelchairs can get up them with a bit of a push.
we have just returned after a weeks stay at the tropicanna rosetta hotel sharm a excellent holiday staff very polite and friendly.bedroom very clean breakfast brilliant.the swimming pool was rather cold which was a little dissapointing chinese restaurant ok wine awful. lots of lovely restaurants in sharm itself at a reasonable price. jeep safari recomended we had a lovely day eating with the locals and visiting a bedouin camp it was amazing must have a ride on a camel our 16year old daughter was with us and thoroughly enjoyed her holiday.
Stayed in Rosetta just after Xmas and had brilliant New Year.
Have stayed at the Rosetta twice now, its a nice hotel with great reception area, facilities and friendly staff. Rooms are a decent size, if a little dated in places.
Me and my husband stayed here for one week in november great hotel rooms are spacious and comfortable staff are brilliant. It is a fair walk to the beach you need to get a ticket from reception that will allow you a free sunbed and towel there are free shuttle buses to other beaches the snorkelling is out of this world you cant go to egypt and not snorkell even if your a none swimmer it is about ten minutes to the centre of namma bay which is very busy there isnt many bars but what there is a good night is guaranteed. The locals are very friendly you really do have to barter to get what you want. Back to the hotel there is very little entertainment they put on a russian show VERY BORING. The food is excellent lots of choice and all very fresh but you have to pay for any drinks. but the bars are very nice and welcoming. Another must is to go Quad biking in the desert it is an experience. Overall a fantastic resort with lots of things yo do any questions you can email me. at gail .email@example.com.
