“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Just back from staying at the Tamra and as others have said it is very quiet due to no Italians staying at the moment. The gardens are beautiful , constantly cared for by a team of gardeners. It is very peaceful here at the moment, with the beach and jetty to snorkel from and five pools you are spoilt for choice. The food is of a high standard , chefs preparing pasta at dinner, pancakes and omelettes at breakfast, lots of salads, vegetables , rice, potatoes, fish and meat. Always fruit, cakes, local deserts.
The staff are all friendly and personable , they all work very long hours and really all deserve tips. They really appreciate English chocolate and sweets if you have any room in your suitcase.
Our family room was the size of a two bedroom flat, it had two bedrooms one with a king and one with two twin beds, lovely coming back to an immaculate room with clean , Egyptian cotton sheets and towel displays with flowers.
The drink situation already mentioned, really needs sorting. Plentiful beer, spirits and soft drinks but in the high temperatures out there it seems strange you have to pay for bottled water and can only get small cups from the dispenser. If you ask the bar waiters they will give you a larger glass but you can't fill a bottle.
You are invited to a welcome meeting which says 30% off but then you are not offered a discount when booking trips. We found Sharm club the best prices and very reliable, we booked airport transfers and trips online with them before the holiday , they were very reliable and offered a good service.
Overall this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in, I would love to return .

Room Tip: All rooms in a lovely location.

WOW! I am writing this while still here, we arrived on Thursday 24th April in the evening, we turned up at reception with another couple and the foyer was completely empty and the first thought that ran though my head was what have we let ourselves in for. After speaking to reception about the lack of guests it became apparent that the hotel was normally 80% full of Italians which had told not to travel to Egypt at the present time.

The Room has to be one of the biggest we have stayed in, with a sofa, large double bed, desk, separate, Bath, Shower, Toilet and was very clean.

There was no more than 100 guests staying, which meant there were plenty of Sun beds, Seats and space in the pool, although I must say even if the Hotel was full, there is enough Beds, Chairs etc to go round.

Food was of good quality and fresh, although the choice was limited due to the amount of guests I think, however we did not go hungry.

Staff all great nothing is too much trouble for them and the 2 life guards on the jetty love British sweets we found out.

Coral is the best we have seen and have been out here a few times.

Message and Dive Centre, there is no hassle here they asked us once and have not been back.

As we have been to Sharm a number of times this Hotel would certainly get our vote for a revisit.

Russians are few and far between at this hotel.

Room Tip: Room Stayed 6105 - Ground floor, AC is very good and preforms effectively

The food was amazing , the staff were fantastic , hotel spotless , location beautiful . The Cons : not suitable if mobility isn't great , should have golf buggies if clients are in need of help . Spent eight glorious days from 20 th March to 28th . The last day we had a misunderstanding and didn't realize we had to take keys to reception at noon. We vacated the room at 10 am. Thought the cleaner was going to take our suitcases , went back to room at 1pm to check , suitcases still there , phoned reception and Sheref the manager was extremely rude to us , saying that we hadn't vacated room at 12 pm as we were phoning from the room . We immediately went up to reception and tried to explain the misunderstanding with the cleaner , he promptly replied that he would sack him , yet he was amazing . He raised his voice to us saying so do I have to pay for the room out of my own pocket , he didn't believe that we had vacated the room . Adel our rep tried to speak to him and he sounded so rude . We in the end told him to keep the money from our towels that would be 30 pounds . We were actually talking about returning same time next year but he has left a sour taste ,he has no good manners and should not be front of his . His staff are so much more professional Sheref needs to go to learn about customer relations . In one hour he upset three mature ladies , one of 68 yrs , one of 74 yrs and one of 54 yrs ., he should know better . We will not be returning because if he is in charge we would rather go elsewhere . Sincerely . Maria Brivati from Finchley , London .
,

Room Tip: To be close to a swimming pool , we were in 6013 , very good room . A very long trek up to reception...

I have an apology to make to Cheryl and all the guys at Tamra for not posting this review earlier. So sorry guys! We stayed here last month and the hotel and Sharm in general appeared to be hitting a tough trading climate. We seemed to be one of a handful of a group of brits and other nationalities which made for an air of exclusivety and the excellent service we experienced in all areas of the resort was incredibly good but also so natural.
The resort is predominently Italian which we knew before we booked and
having enjoyed holidays in Italy and Sardinia before , thought this can only be a positive element. It was...the food was delicious with obvious egyptian and indeed italian influences enhancing the whole offer, some great authentic italian regional dishes were available at meal times. We absolutely loved mealtimes. Pre dinner drinks were brought in a timely and friendly manner by Mr Negum and the team, we were waited upon by Waled on most occasions in the restaurant where Waled's extensive knowledge of many languages brought huge pleasure to my father as he got to grips with arabic whilst testing his italian (sometimes at the same time) and much merriment to our party. The massages are brilliant, 'the best I have ever had' my father commented, and he has had a few. The italian animation team were very accommodating if you you make the effort and the exercise programmes organised by Nicole were testing and relaxing depending on your needs. The beach is clean and tidy, the sea is pristine with all sorts of colourful fish around the reef. The rooms were immaculately clean and we stayed in block 7000 which is a short walk to the sea but a somewhat testing uphill walk to reception. A fabulous break, wonderful staff and food. Make sure you talk with Cheryl before you book your days out or excursions! Thanks Tamra beach. We will be back I am sure.

Room Tip: Block 7000 near the sea but uphill walk to reception.
