“Recommended for great snorkelling & good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

The highlights of this hotel have to be the food quality, the snorkelling from the jetty & the friendly, accommodating staff. It is definitely a bit run down & would benefit from a refurb, but overall it's a good hotel & we enjoyed our ten days here.

We booked a 2 bedroom family room which was a bit more expensive, but gave both us & our ten year old son a good amount of privacy. There are two single beds in the smaller bedroom with a wall / lockable door through to main bedroom. The latter was very large but very sparsely furnished; Would definitely have benefited from a sofa / sitting area. As we were on the ground floor we had a large patio which led straight onto a grassy area & then on to the Waterfalls pool. I believe all the family rooms are in the same block (block 9), equidistant from reception & beach.

The food was very good quality for an all inclusive resort. We ate in all four specialist restaurants; Italian, "oriental" (which is actually Arabian / Middle Eastern), Chinese & fish. All were excellent. You can book the speciality restaurants at reception a day in advance & we never had a problem with this.

Like all British guests we were upgraded to the Aquarium restaurant & here the food was always very good; great soup & salad, lovely hand-made desserts, good range of hot mains plus freshly cooked pasta, steak & chicken at cooking stations & always a speciality every night. At lunchtimes you have a choice of pizza (good) or fast food (passable) at the beach, or a large buffet in the main restaurants; good choice at the Marrakech at lunchtime.

The Waterfalls pool is a huge lagoon type pool with lots of shallow areas; you could swim round for hours before you came back to your starting point. There are a lot of nice areas to sit around this pool & it's much more peaceful than the main pool. The latter is also large with water polo & volleyball nets but it's noisy most of the day with the animation team. All three main pools have swim up bars & there is also a small heated pool, so lots of choice. Lots of loungers round all pools and we never had a problem getting them.

The beach......again plenty of loungers & sunshades. You have to go out a long way before it's deep enough to swim (or even kneel / get wet). The jetty is 3/4 km long & really enjoyable to stroll along as the views are great with the turquoise sea & the mountains behind. Not many fish until you get to the end of the jetty and then..... Underwater paradise! A lovely attendant sits at the end of the jetty & points out things of interest; one day an octopus in a rock pool a few metres away, another day a baby clown fish in an anemone. At the end of the jetty the water is still less than knee deep; you walk out 20 metres or so & then come to a coral drop off with an amazing array of fish. You could easily spend a couple of hours each day snorkelling.

The staff all round the resort are very friendly & everyone wishes you a happy stay all the time. On our first day or two all the spa & excursions staff hassled us a little to buy their wares but it wasn't a problem & they soon left us alone.

Finally.... A key topic on previous trip advisor posts.... the Russians.....in our first week there only seemed to be British & Russian guests & the latter were no problem, in fact several times struck up conversations with us. It probably helped that the hotel was only about 30% full so there was plenty of space for everyone. However, in our second week we were inundated by large groups of Palestinians & this changed the atmosphere in a very negative way...... Lots of shouting at all times & we would get out of the pool to find that they had taken our sun beds (even though there were loads available) & even our towels while we were swimming; they would just stare at us & shrug. The pool staff were not happy with their poor behaviour. Shame, as we usually get on with all nations.

Lastly, trips..... We did two, snorkelling / diving boat trip to Tiran island (stunning) & quad biking. Both extremely good value (boat trip £15GBP pp for whole day trip on very comfortable boat including lunch & quad biking £12 for single quad & £15 for double quad for about 1.5 hours). Both highly recommended. We booked through Pete at the St George's pub a couple of doors along from hotel entrance. While the trips were great, we had a few issues with Pete telling tall tales; he totally oversold the trips which was unnecessary, as we were going to book them anyway. So he told us that on the boat trip we would be going on his own boat, that he or his son would personally be our dive master & several other fabrications. In reality, the tour was run by a third party & he was obviously a booking agent; no problem but it made things a bit confusing & he should have just been honest. We were aware of several other trips that he misrepresented to other people in the same week. A word of warning; as Nabq Bay is the northernmost resort in Sharm the excursion transfers can be very long with lots of collections / drop offs along a 20km long area, which is a bit frustrating before & after the trips.

Oh, and try to hire a electric scooter along the beach promenade - great fun!

So all in all, a good resort - enhanced, in our opinion, by the fab snorkelling opportunities. Definitely tired & run down which hopefully the new management will deal with but, given the size of the resort, this will be a mammoth task. Overall great value given the all inclusive room rate.

We have just returned from our fifth visit to the Tropicana (now Tirana) Grand Azure and had THE most amazing holiday! From the moment we arrived we were treated like VIP's, The staff can honestly not do enough for you.

The hotel has started a renovation but don't let that put you off it will not have any ill effect on your holiday. The a la Carte restaurants are all lovely but note that you need long trousers for these. The only negative thing I would say is that the dress code for the Aquarium restaurant is a bit strict and could probably be more relaxed as it is a buffet style restaurant and dress shorts should be allowed as it is self service!

The staff are amazing and made out holiday, there are too many names to mention but a special thanks to Sheref, Reda and Sabry from the Waterfall pool, Reda and Khalek from the beach, Azim and Hamdy from the Reception bar, Mohamed from the Terrace bar and Hasan who cleaned our room - we can't wait to see you all next year! Also a big thank you to Simone and Annette from Customer Relations for everything!

Roll on 2015 - we can't wait to go back!

P.S. It was great to see Amy back with the animation team even though we only got to see her for our last two days! :-))

I visited Tropicana Grand Azure or Tirana Grand Azure from 20.04.2014 to 27.04.2014. Will try to be very precise.
1. Landscaping is very nice and staff is generally friendly and caring.
2. Territory is large and safe.
3. There are plenty of activities for kids such as: different slides, many pools, kids club, ice cream and playground. All of it made my son to prefer hotel area rather then sea with its fishes.
4. Animation team is good. Italian girl Christiana makes it the best. In my opinion without her it wouldn't be so much fun. Every morning she was greeting all the guests. I also can admit her dancing ability and excellent work out (zumba). During one week I was trying to do all activities in the morning and surprisingly for myself lost weight! My son Peter is still singing songs from mini disco and my niece still remember Christiana as Cleopatra because of her show. Good yoga with Vitaliy!
Negatives:
1. Hotel is quite old. If you pay a lot of money to get there it doesn't look like 5 stars hotel. Since furniture is old, bathroom curtain smelled badly, carpet in the room worn out. (My room was 10307 kind of in the middle of hotel, as far as I understand there are better rooms available), We paid a lot and that is why we were disappointed.
2. Food was nice Monday and Tuesday during some BBQ on the terrace. Otherwise it was very predictable. Little choice of fruits, no proper coffee (only instant), no juice (only water mixed with some mix)
3. My sister and niece had diarrhea for 3 days.
4. My mom and sister with two kids arrived 1 week earlier and it took them 4 hours to check in since for some reason they were not in the system. It was very upsetting and tiring since they were just sitting on reception with small child of 4 years old.
5. I bough a CD from little Egyptian entertainer (I do not remember his name but he is a midget). I paid 12 euro (so my sister did) and I did it because I liked him as he was friendly all week. When I arrived to Ireland I loaded the CD and there was nothing on it.
6.Spa's manager Alex was EXCELLENT in the way he provided discounts and free service in case of mistakes. Rami did very good work for me. However, there was other case of unclean and improper behavior of another Spa member who made my memories about that spa unpleasant. That is the reason I valued it so low.

Generally I had a good time. I probably will go to Egypt again. However, I believe to avoid some risk will choose another hotel.

Room Tip: As far as I understood better rooms are located closer to reception. In the beginning of hotel.

Just got home from the most amazing holiday ever at the tirana (was tropicana) grand azure resort and boy are we sad to be home. There is not one negative thing i could say about this hotel. From the moment we arrived the staff were attentive and polite and took our cases upto our room which was immaculate. The grounds were fabulous with plenty of swimming pools to choose from. The food, staff, entertainment, activities and things to do were all outstanding we literally couldnt fault a thing. The bar staff and waiters were all brilliant and we were made to feel like princesses by everyone. The animation team made our holiday!!! Each and every one were full of personality and were always making sure the guests were happy and had plenty to do no matter what age. Chiko was fabulous what a diamond aswell as sasha and kristiana and aimee who came towards the end of our holiday who was so lovely and bubbly we didnt want to leave her!!! Thanks guys for making our time even more enjoyable. The management should be proud to have such an amazing team who are all a credit to the resort. We will one million percent be back!!! Amazinggggg!!!!!

We had a great vacation in Sharm el Sheikh. Hotel was fantastic in every thing. But the best thing about our stay were the very friendly people, which was also the best thing about this hotel. specially Christiana in the animation team, dear Christiana it wouldn't be that pleasant without your positive spirit, we will miss you darling and hope to see you next year. Staff also worked very hard and were great. food was so nice i just wished that the mini aqua park was bigger & fully working.
Thx
Amira, George & little Mikha
Best regards
