5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We had 7 nights in Tamra Beach Hotel Resort 9th - 16th March 2013. We had a terrible journey getting to Sharm, taking about 14 1/2 hours instead of 5 1/2 and yet they had stayed up for us greeting us on arrival at about 02:00 hrs on Sunday morning, seeing us to our room swiftly and providing us with much needed food and refreshments. This first class service was repeated every day with all staff being friendly and courteous. The entire sight was impecably clean and tidy. Our rooms comfortable and spacious and the food was superb. We really could not fault anything and would recommend you stay at Tamra Beach if you want a relaxing break away with your every need catered for. We both enjoyed treatments in the spa which were excellent, a real treat and good value. Thank you to all the team at Tamra Beach.

Room Tip: We were in room 2146 and the rooms in this area are away from the family or entertainment areas with...

This has by far been one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The hotel itself is beautiful, rooms are spacious and comfortable, the grounds are stunning and immaculate, the food was unreal (if you like Italian food you are in for a treat, cannot fault the food one bit, if you don't like Italian food there is still plenty to choose from) and the pool areas are clean and tidy. Our room was cleaned everyday with towels being replaced everyday and the bed was comfortable. Reading some of the reviews I was worried about the lack of English speaking staff, but we did not find this a problem at all, in fact it was quite obvious the staff are trying to make an effort to make the English feel at home. The Italian entertainment team always said hello to us as did most of the hotel staff. My boyfriend became friends with the pasta chef, Ezzat I think his name was, he was always very friendly and took the time to chat to us! We will definitely be back next year and will recommend to all our friends and families, definitely worth the 5* rating! Thank you Tamra Beach!!

Just got back from a week at the Tamra Beach – very relaxing break. I would first say that not speaking or understanding Italian affected my holiday very little, although I had no idea what the entertainment team were talking about, but I didn’t mind. The staff are there to help, and they do!

Check in – swift and efficient. Welcome pack written in English.
Room – spacious, split level with sitting area with TV, sleeping area, dressing area and large bathroom with separate shower. The safe is free to use. Cleaned daily to a high standard. TV in room but only 1 English Channel that I could find which was BBC World News, although it was fun watching NCIS in Italian! I had more interesting things to do than watch TV anyway.
Food – struggled at times (not keen on pasta or cheese) but everything I had was beautifully cooked. There were two barbecues while I was there and they were very good. The staff worked hard to make the restaurant in the evening an attractive place to eat.
Pools – lots of pools to choose from although one or two you may not immediately come across. There is one behind Block 2, and another really beautiful one above the beach bar. Pool towels £10 refundable deposit.
Beach – very crowded at times, but plenty of sunbeds, parasols, windbreaks etc. Kept immaculately clean by staff. The sea can be a bit rough and it’s quite rocky in places. There is a jetty out to the coral.
Children - 2 play areas that I saw, one by the main restaurant and another one on the beach which is shaded by bushes. Also on the beach are a number of boxes with plenty of buckets, spades, mini watering cans etc., so no need to take any. There is also a mini-club.
Gardens – the gardens are really lovely and immaculate. Plenty of benches scattered around, usually in the shade.
General – staff (most) are very helpful, hardworking and cheerful and keep everywhere sparklingly clean and well maintained. Language is not a problem unless you make it one - you’re abroad after all! There is some noise from the airport but no more than I have experienced elsewhere in Sharm. While I was there, two people needed medical attention, (a young girl fainted on the beach, and a lady fell over in the sea and cut her head) and on both occasions staff were there to help within seconds, and professional assistance was there within minutes so no health and safety worries.
I would like to see some brighter decoration/furnishings in the bedrooms as the colours are a bit too muted for my taste. I also think wine should be part of the all inclusive package rather than just free at meal times. Tea and coffee making facilities in rooms would be an added extra as would a small table on the terrace, but these are very minor issues. All in all a lovely relaxing break.

The hotel currently does not provide tea & coffee facilities to guest rooms or have wine in the bars.The majority of Sharm El Sheikh resorts as you mentioned in you review falls under the direct flight path of Sharm International airport so guests may experience air traffic noise across hotels. Thank you for pointed out to other guests there there are no health and safety issues within the hotel.
We look forward to welcoming you back at Tamra Beach Resort again on a future holiday.

Very impressive hotel. Stunning well maintained grounds, excellent food, lovely staff, incredibly room (huge, king bed, lounge area, large balcony with sea view, wet room shower and beautiful bath!). Lovely beach front with a crowded end and a calm quiet end where you can lounge 1m area from the sea. The hotel also has 5 stunning pools

The only downside to this hotel is that it is predominantly Italian from the signs to the tv channels to the staffs language ability. Mum and I found this a little overwhelming for the first coupled days but it quickly stopped being an issue. The staff treated us like queens as we were English and I returned with a bit of Italian language knowledge.

The hotel is in Nabq which is very close to the airport, a 20 minute drive to Nama, and a 30 min drive to the old market.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have sea views but this doesn't mean they are close to the beach....ask for a...

Do not stay at this hotel unless you are and or speak fluent Italian as you will not be catered for. All entertainment in Italian. This resort states five star but I would not rate it as such. The accommodation screams four star, the food quality three star,(school canteen style-eat early or you will have left overs) and the communication with staff very poor. We chose this resort mainly based on the reviews for food quality and (5*) accommodation, will definitely not make the mistake again of going to a large resort that caters for 640+ at meal times. Is it normal procedure to be charged for an Espresso with breakfast on an 'All Inclusive package', but not be charged for one at the pool bar??? Alcoholic drinks were also chargeable after 10pm???? Customer service poor upon departure......

Room Tip: Choose a room as far away from the bar pool as possible or you will not get any sleep before 1am.

Dear Reviewer,

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your comments, we are sorry if any inconvenience was caused throughout your stay.
All of the points you raised in your review have been shared with the hotel management team and I wanted to take the time to share some of their feedback with you.
You have specified in the review that the Eden Village - Tamra Beach Resort is a 5 star property. Just to offer clarification on this point the hotel is officially rated as a 4 star hotel. This star rating is awarded by the Egyptian ministry of tourism following a full inspection of the hotel features and facilities in comparison to hotels of a similar standard within the resort. Guests might find different star ratings with booking agents who will award their own star rating category based on their interpretation of the hotel features and facilities.
The Hotel as 244 rooms but the area is very large but it is mainly an Italian club, I am sorry to read that overall you were not satisfied with the food. While you do not specify if this is the quality, quantity or variety, As I am sure you can appreciate it is a challenge for our food & beverages team and kitchen to cater for different nationalities, cultures and personal taste. We Provide Buffet style for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner but we would hope guests see their holiday as an opportunity to try and sample different types of foods rather than those that are the same as they experience back home. Regarding the Breakfast espresso "Lavazza" is imported and the one from the bar is local. The all inclusive service ends at 00:00 midnight, you will find a copy in your welcome pack of the "All inclusive" including what times Bars/Restaurant are open - close and what beverage is available in the "All Inclusive and what is for extra charge. The coming months will see further customer service training rolled out across all departments to ensure staff in all areas are anticipating and exceeding guest expectations.
I hope this goes some way towards covering the points you raised in your review and once again thank you for your feedback.
