“Amazing environment, awful staff”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

Bad Points:
STAFF: made our stay terrible. Nobody does anything for you unless they get tipped. I think the order should be, first do something nice, then get tipped IF the guest wants. But they are asking you how you’re doing and waiting money for it…ridiculous! Very mannered! Once cleaner came into our room, told his name and didn’t left until I gave him money… Waiters also doesn’t pay attention (without tips), we had to look for tableware and bring it back after we finished. As we told, that we are from Hungary, they laughed at us and became scornful.
FOOD: horrible! We lost weight, because didn’t find anything to eat. Everything has the same taste, tousands of salads, creams and cookies causes you diarrhea. Everything is very sweet, drinks too. Only grilled chicken with pasta is available for european stomachs, but they’re giving very less and looking ugly if you ask for more. And you can’t call coctail those syrup-things… Coffee is only available from automat (powder coffee).
Good Points:
BUILDING: very good condition. Spacious, friendly environment and rooms, shower could be cleaner.
VIEW: amazing!!! We had a seaview room, but the whole beach has a very wonderful view, that compensates all bad things! The beach is also very nice and no hell-hole! That’s very-very good.
ANIMATION TEAM: we never were on any programs organised by the team, but they were coming everyday to ask if we have fun to play ball games, go to parties to the city, etc, so they were nice. Young russians if I’m not wrong. By the way, the hotel is full of russians! Staff also speaks russian.
MISC: the wheather is perfect! The sky and the sea is as blue and clear as you never saw! Animals in the water are beautiful. I recommend desert programs (quads, camels, beduines, Moses Mountain), and diving (Ras Mohamed National Park)! These are very-very miraculous!!! For souvenirs go to FIX PRICED shops in Old Market (I recommend „Mark Center”), because arabs stiff you easily, while you think you bargained good. You can easily bargain goods to half or even third price because the arabs often give you an amount that is much much more than the desired product is worth.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south-side are quieter and also not as far from frequented areas!

We had a lovely, relaxing holiday and can't say how highly we regard the helpfulness and friendliness of all the staff. We were made very welcome and all the staff could not do enough for us from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We tried all the food on offer and enjoyed all of it - especially 'The Fish Restaurant. Loved every minute :-)

My partner and I are just home from coral beach hotel. We had a fantastic holiday. We were made feel so welcome by all the staff, nothing was too much trouble. We were particularly welcomed and extremely well looked after by the staff in the mermaid restaurant. Monsieur was just a delight to meet and made us feel very special as I'm sure he did with everyone. Both friendly and professional! We really did relax. If I could advise anything it would be to book an excursion or two depending on the length of your visit, just to add some excitement. They are very easily organised. We will never forget our trip and hope to return at some point. :))

I have just returned from having 10 nights at the Coral Beach Hotel, this is our first time to Egypt so was not sure as too what to expect. firstly I booked this only two weeks ago as a last resort to get away from England. Teletext gave this 5 star of which it's not and I was quite perplexed about the reviews on here as it came out as 4.5 out of 5. I have had to think about this one as its quite easy to stream of all the bad points but their are a lot of good points. So her are the good points
- location and view is very nice
- staff make your holiday very enjoyable
- weather
Here are the bad points
- food is very bland, reparative if you like chicken and rice. The Hotel does not cater for international cuisine. Lack of fruit and when they have it you have to pay for it.
- no coffee and tea making facilities in your room.
However a special mention has to go to Mohammed (Pool attendant) outstanding and very good at making you feel welcome and I hope all goes well with your new baby arrival.
Manssour ( restaurant waiter) very easy to get on with and made sure all our needs were catered for. this guy deserves to be promoted to the next level as he certainly worked all the crowd and knows everyone on a personnel level. Abdullah ( restaurant waiter) very good service. Hussein ( Front desk ) very nice and always gave us good service. it's the staff that makes this hotel good but please to encourage more Brits then you have to look at your Menu and cater for us.

In response to the coment by the manager of this hotel. Sorry but I took this trip way back in 2004 so there is no way I can remember the dates or my room number. The porter has most likely left by now! I never travelled in Aug 2011 but 2004

We booked here on the strength of the trip advisor reviews. Had a wonderful 10days in November 2009 and would def return to Egypt. We didn't do any 'Egyptian' things, like pyramids or camel rides, but we relaxed by the pool and had a wonderful time. I have a dairy allergy, and when we arrived the staff thought this was vegetarianism!! So I had grilled peppers, tomatoes and salad for my dinner that evening. My hubby had the great idea of speaking to a rep ( not ours as we didn't have one) and he wrote down that I couldn't eat dairy products and showed it to the receptionist. From then on all was fine....we were introduced to our own personal chef, who asked us what we would like for each meal. He didn't understand that I wanted small portions, and we'd have a mountain of food for each meal! All staff were great, and really went out of their way to help.
We took the free shuttle bus from the hotel into sharm centre, which in November resembled a war zone, and we're ripped off by this chap selling perfumed oils. It was quite scary at one point, but at least we can laugh about it now!
The hotel itself was in need of renovation, we were upgraded to a room which was down by the shore as it was our honeymoon, and the bedroom was fine, but the bathroom had seen better days. The shower cubicle was rusting and very small, and no bath. the staff were great and the cleaning team really made an effort to exceed expectations.
We met some lads on holiday, and soon became friends. There were mainly Russian holidaymakers at the hotel, so the 4 of us stuck together!
We will return to Egypt, but will research prices of other hotels too as I believe they are all fairly similar in set-up and unless this hotel has been renovated, there are better ones available for similar price.

We came to stay at the Coral beach Tiran in march 2012, this was our third visit to egypt but the first at this hotel, by far this was the best experience ever. the staff were excellent and could not do enough for us, we never had to order a drink as soon as we had finished our drinks new ones arrived. it was the same in the dining room we were met by Atty and Mohammed who were very friendly and attentive towards us.monsour's dancing in the bar on an evening was a sight to behold! yet another member of staff who is a credit to the hotel. the beach and access onto the jetty was easily accessible although there is a few steps down to both pontoons.
once your in the water the snorkelling is second to none.
we've stayed at other areas of sharm and the sharks bay area seems to be one of the best for variety of fish to see.
it is situated in a central position to take a short taxi ride to either soho square( highly recommended as we stayed there in 2010 at the sierra,). or down to naama bay.

we hope to see some of the same brilliant staff again when we return in november 2012.
