1 the a la carte restraunts are not part of the all inclusive
2 the bar in the lobby area is inadequate as is seating area
3 the food in the buffet is lukewarm/cold even when brought out fresh from the kitchen
4 the access from the main block to the rest of the site is not suitable for anyone with walking disability
5 the food at the beach bar and swimming pool bar was poor the only time it was good was when it came direct off the barbeque

tropitel naama bay
We had a great holiday at the Tropitel and would highly recommend it apart from a few minor moans .There was quite a few steps up the hill to our hotel block so if you have trouble walking or push chairs then best to stay in the main hotel.For us though it was worth the climb as it was quieter and lovely views and only took about 10 mins. We had a double room which was massive and very private the staff could not do enough for you .There are two main restaurants which serve an excellent choice of food but not always very hot .We went to the semi olympic pool most of the time as it was mostly adults and no pool activities which is heaven for me. Only went to the beach once as it was tiny and packed but the snacks here were better than the pool bars.

hotel good but no entertainment day or night as advertised. had to go out evenings
Hotel was lovely although bathrooms need updating. Food as expected at any all inclusive but no snacks available as advertised (MacDonalds and Kentucky over the road though!)
Pooll areas and service very good.
Very disappointed there was no entertainment except for Christmas Eve gala Night. Staff said they were too busy rehearsing for New Years Eve which meant people just hung around reception area with bar in evening. You can go out but being hassled every few seconds by locals gets irritating in end. Not worth the money.

Great alternative christmas
We travelled on christmas eve 2012, arriving at the hotel at around 6pm. Check in was smooth with a welcome drink quickly offered. We were allocated a room in the 700 block. We found the room to be lovely, however the bathroom floor was really dirty. Following a call to reception we were swiftly moved to an equally lovely room. We found the staff could not do enough for us and were very friendly without being intrusive. This was our first christmas away from home and would definately do it again. We even saw father christmas on a camel!
The beach was tiny with people packed in like sardines but we were more than happy to spend our days by the pool, being looked after attentively by Ahmed the barman! We felt for the bellboys who had to carry baggage up in the lift and then up loads of steps to the rooms! Not the best hotel for folks with mobility problems unless you specify. We're fit forties and used the stairs all the time to try to burn off some calories!
If we returned we would want the same block with the 1/4 olympic pool, however with the very short days in December the sun went down by 3pm or before so we would book a room which enjoys the last of the sun after leaving the pool.
The alcohol left a lot to be desired and the entertainment dreadful! Not impressed with the snake man, showing no respect for these poor snakes.
On the whole we would definately recommend this hotel.

Family Holiday in Naama Bay Sharm.
The hotel Troitel was fantastic from the moment we entered the doors, we were upgraded on arrival, the hotel was very clean, the staff can't do enough for you, the food was one of the best we have had from an all inclucive holiday in as much as variety for a long time. The location is great very central, the beach was clean as was the beach bar and buffet area, and only a very short walk away.
There were two down sides however, that was some staff taking payment to secure the best sunbeds. and on check out at 12.00 we were given an apple,banana,apple drink and a bottle of water for our lunch!
at all other all inclucive hotels we stayed at we have still been allowed to used all facilities until pick up.

We loved the Tropitel. The rooms were large and modern and had everything we needed. The food was great, the staff friendly, the pools perfect, the location excellent. We will definitely be back.
