Trust me, you will be thrilled! Everything is great ... if you've paid all inclusive, you have the right (in 7 days) on two dinner-Mexican and Italian restaurant, the drinks were you involved juices-cola, fanta etc, coffee, cappuccino, tea, beer, wine in a glass, water and 14 kinds of alcoholic cocktails and two soft! Capirosku sure to try it! : D. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are excellent! Really there are dishes for every taste (even has a special section for people who need to be on a diet). One day we had shrimp, grilled tuna and lots of other fish-like meditheran theme made ​​dinner. The beach is phenomenal .. much nicer than live! It leaves you breathless! Activities for children at morning program that runs from 10-12.30 (pizza, pirate day, games, collecting coral on the beach, Olympic Day, Indian Day, a carnival day., And afternoon program that runs from 14:30 to 16:30 (games, making origami, drawing, cartoons, making macaroni necklace, active play on the playground), so do not worry. At the beginning of the beach is shallow water, so that there are children with buckets, cacth a fish! And I of course, lying in the shallows . My husband prefers deep, so go to the cup in a coral reef (over a pontoon bridge). Rooms were very nice and tidy, we have the room cleaned every day, towels are changed every day ... so, as far as hygiene are excellent. not to worry-everything will be ok, this is really all clear ... we are very satisfied. Also wish to thank Mr. Ahmed for help .. All staff in the hotel are more than friendly! Thank you for everything! Greetings from Croatian!

We went to the Tropitel for 2 weeks in June 2014. We had an amazing time, the hotel is beautiful, The rooms very spacious and clean & the beds were so big and comfortable. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful they couldn't do enough for you. We had a birthday and an anniversary celebration while we were there & were given a cake at dinner on both occasions & on our anniversary the restaurant manager even left another one in our fridge. The beach was lovely so nice to walk along and the beds and huts were very well thought out. The jetty is amazing with a lovely lagoon at the end to swim/snorkel in. The food was excellent plenty of choice and always fresh and superbly cooked. A special mention to all of the staff, but a few that stood out to us. Najib the resident manager such a lovely friendly man very efficient & couldn't do enough for us he always took the time to talk to his guests and make sure all their needs we're catered for (sorry I nearly knocked you flying) The food and beverage manager that I'm afraid to say I don't have his name but so nice always spending time to stop for a chat even though he was so busy running such an excellent restaurant & staff especially Fekry who was so pleasant & efficient, to name but a few. Jacob in the lobby bar very friendly and always ready to serve you. Of course how could we forget Abrahim & Tamir (habibi) at the pool bar so much fun but so professional. The pool was wonderful too but we did spend most of our days at the beach as it was less crowded & had a lovely breeze, so we had a lot of lunches at the beach bar where the chef Achmed always looked after us so well along with Saeed and all the beach bar guys. plus we can't leave out all the towel guys especially Mamoud and of course AL haseen with his cheeky smile. One of the great aspects of this hotel is it has two Al a carte restaurants which you are able to go to each one in a week, One was Italian and one was Mexican both were equally as nice as the other the food was excellent in both and was so nice to eat down close to the beach. Ali Baba one of the chefs in the Mexican was a great character even showed us how to make fried Ice cream (john terry with the silver chain). All in all we would highly recommend this hotel for its location, excellent facilities in the hotel, excellent staff that were attentive, friendly and funny. High quality and choice of food and drink, great value for money overall a wonderful holiday, we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Always ask for a pool or sea view or you could be facing the desert.

My main reason for writing this review is to agree with many reviews I read before we booked our hotel in Egypt.

The Hotel is situated in a very quiet area away from any other night life and shops.The hotel is at the end of a strip of hotels many of them unfinished and is right on the beach.

We chose a club room which was fantastic with sea and pool view I did notice some of the rooms looked out onto a building site and desert so the choice we made was well worth the extra money.

The hotel has a lovely pool area but many of the beds were already take at 6am but having said that we never had a problem finding a bed and the essential sun shade.The pool bar service and beach bar service was excellent nothing was too much too much for Tom Cruise and his friends whose names escape me at the minute.

Reception Bar service was outstanding again nothing was too much trouble we were treated like royalty Jacob has to be one of the hotels biggest assets he was very professional remembered our names and on many occasions had the drinks on the table minutes after we sat down.
I hope you look after your staff Hotel Tropitel they are your biggest asset.

Mexican and Italian restaurants you are allowed to book once each per week with the Italian open at lunch time although you need to be there before it opens at 1pm as the seating area is very limited. Both restaurants are excellent we preferred the Mexican but that was just personal choice.Again the staff are excellent and work very hard.

The Palm restaurant where the main buffet food is served again staff are excellent but we did find the food a bit hit and miss and found sometimes the food was excellent other times we struggled to find something to eat.
I'm not sure what the problem is but think it might be the combination and variety of food needs attention.There always seemed to be chicken wings and beef stew and although I like both I don't want to eat them everyday.
The quality and quantity of meet needs attention one night I had 1/4 of duck and couldn't find a single piece of meat to eat it was just bone and skin a second night the chef was carving beef and I was given two tiny slithers of beef which I topped up with chicken wings. This was the only down side to the holiday for us I'm afraid we have been spoilt on quality variety on previous holidays.

Beach was lovely, sun beds with wind screens and bar service were excellent we had burger and chips a few days for lunch but were never lucky enough to have chicken strips they had always sold out.This is where they have the entertainment is at night but we never got to see any shows the area is just a stage with a load of chairs seated round and I'm afraid does look a bit on the tatty side.We did use the golf buggy to go further up the strip to buy a few pressies for our grandchildren this cost 20 dollars for and hour but we did find out later you can get a better deal if you haggle two separate trips for £20.


Summing up would we go again Yes we would if the price was right and we wanted a quiet holiday in the sun with quality rooms and excellent staff

We went to the Tropitel Sahl Hasheesh for a cheap autumn break in the sun and it didn't disappoint. We paid just over £1000 for 2 of us, all inclusive including flights, this was a bargain! Our room was huge and with a balcony that overlooked the main pool area and the sea, and it was very clean. Some minor maintenance issues that ought be be resolved (e.g. there was a slightly leaky pipe above the bathroom ceiling which sometime dripped through) but nothing that worried us much. Due to the decline in tourism in the region half of the hotel was mothballed - but is was quite tidy, not a building site. Facilities were fine and the food generally OK if not particularly special. Our visit included 1 evening meal in the Mexican and 1 in the Italian - both were a bit better than the buffet but in my opinion the buffet was OK. We were invited back to the Italian for a second visit by the manager (for no charge) and the chef laid on a fantastic meal for us (not on the menu), easily the best we had all week and also free decent wine to go with it! They seemed to like the English, suggesting we were better mannered than some of the other visitors.

A couple of negatives - we did get hassled a bit by people trying to sell us treatments, boat rides, diving trips etc but they got the message eventually. Similarly in the hotel shops - we only visited them once and wouldn't go back due to the pressure we were put under to buy things. Culturally this is a bit strange to us!

I went snorkelling from the hotel jetty a couple of times over the reef, it was pretty good, not quite Maldives variety of species but still good enough. I also had a couple of massages which were fine - the organisation of them was haphazard but the treatments quite good.

The staff that looked after us were brilliant - in the restaurant, in the bar and our room cleaner all really friendly and good service.

Location is OK but there isn't really anywhere to go outside the resort. We did an organised trip to Hurghada (where we stopped at an Oil store on the way, more pressure to part with money!) but the town isn't a place I'd go back to, didn't feel very safe to us.
