Tivoli Tropicana

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 26, 2011

It's some way from the resort centre with not very much close by, a couple of supermarkets and a *British* pub next door.
There is a free shuttle bus to the beach in the daytime and to Naama Bay? in the evening.
Anyway the hotel itself is pretty good, large and comfortable room for us, staff all incredibly friendly and helpful and the restaurant is good too.
Once the sun sets mozzies appear in abundance and we found it difficult to keep them out of our room although the spray provided did help we were both bitten countless times, ho-hum, it happens!
Overall a decent place to stay if you're looking for a quiet and relaxing time.

Tropicana Tivoli Hotel, Sharm El Sheik

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 20, 2005

The Tropicana Tivoli Hotel in Sharm El Sheik is a lovely place to stay. We visited there for a week in June 2005 and found it very friendly (one of the friendliest hotels I’ve stayed in) and clean. Just got back today.

It’s very easy to get a taxi from the hotel and they are very cheap. We didn’t pay more than GBP1.80 to get anywhere. Yes, you have to bargain so ask someone else how much you should be paying.

Alcohol is served in Sharm, which I was a bit surprised (but very pleased!) about. However, it was the only thing which wasn’t extremely cheap. Beers were GBP1.70 in the hotel, and about half that elsewhere. Bacardi though – GBP3.70 for a small shot! Take some duty-free if you like spirits.

The worst thing about the Tivoli is the music which they constantly pipe across the swimming pool while you are relaxing during the day (although I did get them to turn it off once). Oh, and the showers. Oh well, who cares?! The best thing is sheer value for money.

Please remember that you are not in England anymore, you’re in North Africa. Things are very different here – a 3 star hotel in Egypt is not the same as a 3 star hotel in Tunbridge Wells! However, how many 3 star hotels in Tunbridge Wells have a very large and clean swimming pool, an all you can eat (very tasty!) buffet for GBP3.80, a free shuttle bus, air conditioning everywhere, a fridge in the room and a diving school? We had a balcony as well but now I’m just showing off…..!

Yes, the showers are certainly weedy (and a cold shower is impossible – it comes out lukewarm at the very least in June!), although just about effective, and the electrics are not to European standards (although they work fine), Egyptian shop-keepers are constantly try to get you to buy things in their shop - but who cares? If you find it difficult to politely say ‘no thank you’ to a shop keeper (you may actually have to say this 3 or 4 times!), then perhaps you shouldn’t go to Egypt.

Unique Quality: It is not suitable for anyone who wants loads of nightlife within a 2 minute walk, although there is plenty of late night dancing in very easy reach by taxi. It is basically a very quiet hotel – all anyone does at the Tivoli is relax, read, eat, and drink at the pool bar. Perfect!
There is also a free shuttle bus to and from Naama Bay, about 4 miles away, which is full of touristy shops and restaurants. There are also some nightclubs here. Even in Naama Bay it is hard to spend more than about GBP12.00 for a meal for 2 (without drinks). Most places are much cheaper than that.

Not the best but not the worst

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 15, 2005

This hotel is based in the Hadaba area of Sharm, about 7k from Naama Bay. Its a traditional egyptian style hotel, with low buildings. the accomodation itself was satisfactory if somewhat basic apart from the leaky shower, but hey i got over that. What i didnt take kindly too was being ripped off by the hotel reception staff when changing english pounds in to egyptian Le. I am an accountant so i always check the paperwork.

In essence I think the guy had tried it on with all the british tourists. An eldery couple I spoke had the same treatment. I was gutted as I am a real Sharm evangelist, go a few times a year and recommend the place at every opportunity. Anyway i reported the theif to the manager who duly tried to placate me with free dinner etc. The manager was a really nice man and was very embarressed at the situation, but really it shouldnt have happened in the first place.

I only ate there once in the evening, it was buffet style but not top nosh. Unfortunately I never made it once to breakfast (too many late nights) so cant comment on that.

I wouldnt return there, but i have heard since its going to be redeveloped for residential accomodation.

Unique Quality: Pool was nice and clean. Most of the staff on a permanent go slow though, ordering drinks was painful. I only managed to grit my teeth a couple of days at the pool as I luckily had lots of people to see and places to go.

The place is quite popular with divers and tourists, Airtours go there from the uk
