Sharm el Sheikh is very clean and geared for tourists. You could forget you were in Egyt except for the hassling for money by the taxi drivers, service people and camel operators.
... arrival. I won't use this forum to complain too much about the hotel details, but suffice to say, it's not what we paid for and expected. Still it was only $210 for 8 days accommodation, with breakfast, so could have done much worse. Besides, it's 77 degrees and sunny in January! Can't complain about that either.

Historical Traveler Reviews lti Tropicana Grand Azure Sharm El-Sheikh
Excellent value for money
Before we were about to go we read some really terrible reviews (on another website) of this hotel and we were very worried that we were going to be disappointed. These people however cannot have been to the same hotel as us! It was extremely clean, the staff were very friendly and the a la carte restaurants were lovely. For the price we paid for the holiday it was excellent and I would recommend it anyone.
We was in LTI-Grand Azur Resort for 2-weeks holiday with my parents and all the time we were looking forward to being at home! It was the worriest holiday I have ever had! We came back tommorow, fortunately!
We stayed at the LTI Grand Azure from 26th June - 10th July and had a great time.
I cannot believe some of the bad reviews written about his hotel. I was extremely wary after reading them and I really need not have been because as soon as we set foot in the hotel we received brilliant service in a wonderful spacious hotel. Me and my friend who are 22 and 23 stayed 2 weeks here and it is still a very couple/family based hotel but this meant it was peaceful after returning from naama bay at 4am. We were quite suprised at the nightlife in Naama Bay always finding a bar open til 3/4am to drink and dance in. Beware tho drinks are not cheap out there expect to pay about the same as you would here in the UK or a little bit more.
We stayed at the LTI Grand Azure at the end of April '05 and we had a great time. The hotel is lovely and the grounds are very well kept and very clean. There are various pools to sunbathe by plus the beach, which we felt was a little more secluded and private to sunbathe on. The staff were very friendly and amiable and the food was good. The evening entertainment was not that great but the hotel ofers a shuttle to the lively resort of Naama Bay. We walked out on the jetty from the hotel beach and went snorkelling on the reef with some of the most beautiful fish I have ever seen. The sea was so warm and it was just amazing. Totally worth the holiday just to do that. We are very keen to go back to the LTI Grand Azure, but next time I would take US dollars or sterling to use as currency as Egyptian pounds are pretty worthless.
Stayed here for 2 wks August 04. It was really great - kids (12 and 13) had their best holiday ever. The hotel, grounds and 3 pools are amazing. Highlight for me was the snorkelling off the end of the hotel's jetty. Not really a jetty but more of a walkway to get you over the old coral so as you can swim in deeper water at the edge of the reef. However, the jetty is about 400m long and still falls short of the reef - it could do with extending by another 150m. Take a pair of cheap canoeing shoes to swim in or old coral will rip your feet to shreds, (they are for sale in hotel though). I don't do scuba but those who did, agree that the snorkelling here was almost as good as the open water diving. The hotel aren't too keen on you going snorkelling when the tide is in and they provide a lifeguard who sits at the end of the reef on a chair under an umberella, yes it is true. The rooms were excellent. Down side was food in the main buffet restaurant, although of a good quality you had to queue like cattle and were soon switched onto beach restaurant for b,fast, lunch and dinner. Although range of food was not as extensive, quality was good and who can complaining about eating your meals on the beach? Mama Mia Italian restaurant was excellent only you had to queue to make reservations in the morning prior to you eating. Somedays queue was for about half an hour, lots of moaning and groaning here but it didn't bother me too much as I get bored easily sunbathing so standing in air conditioned lobby was a bit of a treat! Took a trip to Cairo, there are 2 ways of doing this, cheaper way is on coach for 6 hours but you stay over night, I think this was about ''110, more expensive was to fly a.m. and return early evening, this is what we did with having the kids with us and seem to remember coughing up about ''160 each. It was well worth it - however, Sphynx not as large as I expected. All in all we had a great time, 11 out of 10.
ME, my husband and 2 children(12 & 8) have just returned back (31/3/05)from 1 week at the Grand Azure and we had a brilliant time. The staff especially the bar staff and waiters were extremely helpfully and always very pleasant, they liked to talk to the British to help improve their English.
The grounds and rooms were all kept ammaculate. There were numerous pools with waterslides- plenty to keep the kids amused during the day. The evening entertainment was the only downfall as not much going on.
Weather excellent all week getting hotter each day !!!
Only had one trip to Naama Bay and soon came back to the hotel as it was very bustling and quite intimidating.
Will definately return.
We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at this hotel. Having read very varied reports about it we did not know what to expect. We need not have worried. It was great.
Just returned from a week over New Year with my husband and 2 children at this hotel - glad to be home for something to eat !
I have just come back from a 2 week holiday at the Grand Azure hotel. After reading all the reports on the hotel I really didn't know what to expect. It is lovely, the new reception is open as well as all the resturants and pools. This hotel is now a 5*. We experienced no significant problems.
