Just arrived back from2 weeks at the Tulip Resort Marsa Alam, where we had a great holiday.
The hotel is lovely with a very grand enterance.
The grounds are immaculately kept and the rooms are very clean and spacious and nicely furnished.
The beach is brilliant with loads of sun beds and wind breakers.
We received information from Thomas Cook a week before we went , informing us that the main pool with swim up bar would be closed probably up to the end of March, due to re-tiling.We arrived on the 1st March and by the 4th it was completely finished and open, which was a great bonus as it looked lovely.
The dining rooms are good as is the food, plenty of choice, pasta chef, carvery now and again (turkey,beef etc).Barbaque every night, usually hot dogs and chicken but on many nights fish,egyptian food and continental dishes, every type of bread you can think of for breakfast,lunch & dinner, omeltte chef at breakfast. So there is something for everyone. I am very wary with foreign hotel food especially after some of the the comments on trip advisor about this hotel but I managed to find plenty of thingsI liked.
The entertainment isn't great but having said that we did not watch it much as it was outside and it was a bit cool at night , but they do try their best.
The jetty is a must, it is a great way to get a bit of exercise, it takes about 10-15 mins to walk to the end and see the lovely coral and beautiful coloured fishes and marine life.
The staff are exellent and really friendly.
We took the shuttle bus which goes twice a day to Port Galib, about 20 mins away,it is worth going just to have a change of scenery,there are shops, hotels restaurants and a marina but it is very quiet at the moment as it is still being developed.
Ther were a lot of flies by the pool and on the beach (but not inside the hotel) recommend taking a fly swat!
The weather was lovley and sunny but quite windy and cool at night (warming up though).
There are a few small shops in the hotel where you can get most things you need and a few sovegniers, the prices are quite acceptable (haggle).
We had a really great time at the Tulip and met some lovely people. Go to the beach party on Friday night just to let your hair downI.It is 10 euros but great fun (just dancing and drinks) and goes on until the early hours if you want to stay that long.
If you want to get away from it all and have a nice peaceful holiday and great value for money then this is the place!
