Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
We spent four days and 3 nights in Sharm El Sheikh and it was exactly what we needed! This city is on the Red Sea and may be the most touristic beach city in all of Africa. It is lined with souvenir shops everywhere. I thought it was kind of funny that there is one highway here and one side is nice hotels and one side is a mountainous desert. There …
... no president (he is only a puppet) and that they wish Mubarak was back in power. We’ll always remember the Red Sea as our first (hopefully of many) dive spot—a really high bar to beat. If I ever hear the following four phrases I will always think of our time here:
Welcome to Egypt!
You’re a very lucky man
Welcome to Alaska
Highly recommended travel destination. Now is a good time to come while all the flights and deals are so ...
... four days relaxing by the pool after our buffet breakfast. The weather has been beautiful with sunny days of 28. In the evenings we would walk along the beach where all the restaurants and market places were.
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.
... dry, with streams of desert sand instead of water. There was every imaginable color of stone and thousands of weird formations caused by erosion over the millennia. I had to remind myself to blink because I wanted to take it all in! The Egyptian Orthodox monastery was built at the foot of Mount Sinai, at the place where Moses brought down the Ten Commandments. It also contains the Burning Bush (still alive!!) and the well where Moses met his wife. After a brief tour of the ...
... pufferfish, many many jellyfish, a brightly coloured pyjama slug and a giant moray eel. Getting out of the water was very depressing, first it was way too hot outside already and second returning to the world of gravity was just bad, especially with a cylinder on your back and a belt stacked with lead weights, I’ve never felt so heavy in my life. Made me realise even more how awesome diving is, letting you experience floating :) But there was one more ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tropitel Naama Bay Sharm El-Sheikh
Me & my boyfriend stayed at this hotel for two weeks in July / Aug and we both really enjoyed our stay. The staff couldnt have been more helpfull and I would definitly recommend it to friends.
we went out for the first two weeks in August, it was VERY hot!
myself husband and 14yr old son, returned to namma bay for the second time after reading reviews on this hotel was a bit optomistic as they weren't very good. we arrived on 17th july at 9.30pm had a lovely welcome from reception.we were taken to our room, and we're really impressed by the size of them, and we're spotlessly clean. we were all inclusive the buffet food at the restuarant was beautiful excellent choice and was always fresh. we we're there for two weeks and towards the middle of the second week we we're going out for the odd meal for a change. plenty of places to eat mexican which is joined to the hotel we're you get discount. mcdonalds kfc, indians etc. as this was our second visit to namma bay we new where to go. the only thing with all inclusive in egypt is totally different to other parts of i.e spain. their snacks are only cakes, and you have your drinks from different bars at different times. personally as its so cheap to eat here i'd go bed&breakfast again as we did the first time. the weather was boiling can't fault it. my son and husband both had to see the hotel doctor as they had ear infections, and he was brilliant, and was quite cheap, but will claim back on insurance. the hotel staff we're polite helpful and really nice people. we we're tipping our waiter every three days 20 egyptian pounds, and had fabulous treatment. we recommend that you go on the trip to ras mohammad national underwater park and the trip to tiran island the fish you see are amazing.we cant wait to back but will go a different time of the year so that we can do the pyramids etc. this time of year it's 45degrees there. hope you have as good a time as we had. and totally recommend this hotel.

worst all inclusive i have ever had ,had to eat out loads of nights because food was all the same no english food or menu at all food wasnt nice! Roof top bar was the most uncomfortble place in the hotel ! No air con or fans in the bar ran out of vodka at 11:15pm when bar didnt close to 12:00pm! When asked for more vodka he replied " sorry no more " Beer served in small plastic glasses the bottle would be opened the small plastic cup filled the rest of the beer put on the shelf for the next person no top or nothing! On friday on barbieque night which is £10 per ticket the bar for inclusive people is not accesable as it is for ticket onlys found we had to sit outside which had seating for 40 people for an hotel for 800+ rooms. Saturday kareoke night down in the mexican bar but had to pay for drinks even though payed for all inclusive. There was no entertainment upon the roof top bar on the night 3 people in bar. If you were paying for drinks in the lobby bar , nice cool air con beautiful comfy couches drinks in proper glasses. Would go sharmel chaik again but def not to this hotel. Got very stressed by the faults and complaining to various staff on this holiday though most of the staff were very very nice. all inclusive spoilt my holiday !
Me and my boyfriend booked this holiday as the hotel is in the centre of Naama bay so we knew we'd be close to all the nightlife and restaurants if we wanted to occasionally eat out. We booked all inclusive but the food at the hotel was disgusting!! They have different 'theme nights' eg mexican, italian, chinese but the food is exactly the same EVERY single night! They are very fussy about how many drinks you are allowed, only giving you one small (500ml) bottle of water to share between two people and you only get small wine glasses of flat coke or fanta and you have to sign for every drink you ask for. You are not allowed to take the bottle of water out of the restaurant and they actually chase after you if you do! You cannot bring water in from outside the hotel so you have to pay if you want to take a bottle of water back to your room which is ridiculous as they supple you with a fridge but nothing to put in it. We just snuck bottles of water in although being all inclusive you really shouldnt have to, but otherwise would have been so dehydrated. The pool bar serves left over food from the restaurant and the drinks are given in small unwashed glasses and served warm. So in 40+ heat, having a glass of warm water of coke is disgusting, esp seeing as there is a fride there that they do not use! The waiters in the restaurant are so slow and rude, and do not speak english well at all, you ask for a bottle of water and you have to repeat it about 5 times before they understand. Going to the restaurant every day was the low point of the holiday and was so depressing, we actually dreaded it. There is only one restaurant to eat in for all the 800+ rooms and you have to go there for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it gets VERY crowded. The mexican, italian and little buddha restaurants are not included in all inclusive. The food you can order for room service and at the pool (all you have to pay extra for) is the only nice food at the hotel. Every single person we spoke to including ourselves all had very bad stomachs from the food at the restaurant. As soon as we started eating out of the hotel, we were fine. This hotel is very nice & in a very good location, just do not go all inclusive as it is a complete waste of money and there is a hard rock cafe, KFC, indian, thai, chinese, Pizza hut and hundreds of other really nice restaurants to eat at literally across the road from the hotel, where the food is so much better quality and everyone is much friendlier outside of the hotel.
We have just returned from Tropitel Naama Bay. The holiday was very good. The hotel was very clean and plenty going on. when we arrived we were put in the villas which are situated at the back of the hotel, to get there you have to go to the middle of the hotel walk up 3 small flights of stairs. climb a small hill and a
Great location lovely hotel pitty about the food.
hotel lovely staff very nice, seems to be a problem with all inclusive though - food is themed every night but it is all much the same.
Lots of extras you are not told about eg if you want a burger or chips you can as long as you pay not included nor is ice-cream for the kids.
snacks available by pool consisted of 3 platers of hot dog sausages, triangular sandwiches with dressings or small fish bites in batter at dinner time. plain coissants, flavoured coissants and plain cake with dried fruit at breakfast time.
Evening entertainment is low key a singer and an animation team, not very
Farmacy is making a bomb as everyone we spoke to had a stomach bug.
