Quiet place :)

Posted Sep 18, 2016
Pros: It is so far from Naama and it was really quiet.
Cons: The door of our room could of been opened without the key, but the balcony was locked :D
Location: It's deserted around the hotel. They have a daily show at the hotel.
We had a quick check in. Got the room with the stunning view. The beach was great, though it's getting really windy daily till 2pm. There is a playground for kids and overall our stay was pleasant.

Fantastic Hotel , staff and amenities

Posted Sep 17, 2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: not really
Location: Beach....Beach.... Beach.....That is all we wanted
Stayed 10 nights from 31st August and we ( went with my daughters) were treated as VIP by every member of staff that we came into contact with. Beach a few steps from the Hotel. Beautiful views. Massive clean pool with more then plenty of sun beds. Food good and staff went out of their way to meet our Vegetarian needs. To name a few staff who were fantastic..Mohammed from Housekeeping who kept our room spotless ( room 4211). Mohammed and Ahmed in the Bar who were very entertaining. Will definately visit again.

I didn't enjoy my stay. Lots of things went wrong.

Posted Mar 5, 2015
I had to move rooms twice as the showers didn't work. The music at the pool and beach was far too loud. There were lots of Russians who kept pushing in to the queue and being really agressive. The food wasn't very good either. And they took about 20 minutes to bring you a drink at the table. Definitely not 5 star. I left and went to another hotel.

good place for Italians

Posted Oct 29, 2011
Tiran Sharm hotel has a lot going for it with some excellent and very helpful members of staff - especailly the 'also-rans'. The main problem that you are not informed about in advance is that it is so far out of the main town that it is very expensive to go elsewhere for meals by the time you have added on the two-way taxi fare.The only real option is to go full inclusive from the start - not easy to change once you are there! The hotel is run by an Italian company and the whole focus is Italian - nothing bad in that but it does mean that you need to accept that many of the staff struggle communicating in English. Also the food has a strong Italian bias. The food is of a decent quality, especially for a running buffet-type meal but it is a little too much the same each day. Trip are organised well, but again there is a strong Italian focus in communication. The one thing that I cannot understand is why the hotel has its whole schedule one hour ahead of the rest of the country. It is difficult to work out when events are as sometimes (e.g. flights) you need to work on Egyptian time but at others (e.g. meals, end of bar service etc) you have to work on hotel time - and it is easy to be caught out! Having said all that, the hotel is very well organised and there are a lot of activities if you want and plenty of relaxing pools, sun-space etc. Just be prepared to spend a lot of time within the large, seafronted hotel area and all will be well!

If looking for a quiet 5 Star hotel this is the one, it has everything, Pools outside your room, large commumial pool and small kids pools, and a lovely beach, and plenty of sunbeds. All staff were plesant, frendly and helpfull. Plenty of activities throughout the day for all age groups. Entertainment in the evening every night. Food was to a good standard. The only draw back is the distance to any towns although only approx 15 mins for airport by taxi Have a happy stay.

Simply Great

Posted Apr 9, 2011
If you are looking for a resort in Sharm El Sheikh, the best is Tiran Sharm Hotel. I would definitely rate it as 5 Stars as the food is great, you have a variety of pools to choose from and the staff is just what one would hope for. Asem the bartender is a true example for the hotel and its service. What more would one want of a vacation filled with great service, excellent beach, snorkeling and fun filled day with many activities to choose from thanks in part to the Animation staff.

Don't look too closely

Posted Nov 25, 2010
During our stay the hotel was full, so this may in-part have added to our experience. Previous reviews have stated that the hotel was spotless unfortunately this was not our findings. The dining experience was a total nightmare with the hotel operating a 'Every man for himself' policy on finding a clean table and geting your drinks. In the bars the quality of the sprits was apalling, and the plastic glasses used in the pool/beach bar have definately seen better days.
