Just returned from a fortnight in this hotel. Where do I start-- ? Everybody in the hotel had the runs ,
stomach cramps it was horrible , i went to the doctor i told him i had an allergy to penicillin yet he still prescribed it for me i ahd an allergic reaction and was rushed to hospital ,,, the doctor at the hotel s excuse was . english people well think they are allergic when they are not ,, the food was either cold pasta uncooked chicken or disgusting cold fish we ate at mc donalds every day, the staff were perverts always asking u for sex and touching you inappropiatly, they steal off you , the gym has nothing in it that worked theres no snacks available, and u have to pay 100 egypt pounds for 2 hour internet at time , no free wi fi, couldnt wait to get out of there and when we did check out we were issued with a telephone bill we didnt use and because we refused to pay they got police involved and wouldnt let us fly so i paid over two hundred engish just to get out of there ,, they blamed the diahorria on egypt bacteria yet everyone i spoke to in other hotels had no problem ... they dont cook the food properly, the towel display was lovely until u stopped tipping then they made monster towels display and sat it on the chair to greet you as u opened the door ,, almost gave me heat failure,,,do not go its hell

We have just returned from our first holiday in 7 years. We stayed at the Coral Beach Rotana and had a fabulous time. Yes there were lots of rude ignorant Russians there but in other countries the British can be perceived in the same way! The food was great and varied - if you wanted burger and chips there was another restaurant that catered for this. The staff were friendly, attentive and very helpful. A special mention must be made to Mohamed in the Mermaid Restaurant, Ali, Iham and Shaher in the Blue Moon Bar and Taher at the Swim Up Bar - our glasses were never empty! Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The hotel grounds were immaculate - staff were always sweeping up, cutting grass etc. All in all we had a great time and will be returning in May/June 2013.

Stayed at the coral beach mid november and at the end of the day you get whay you pay for. The room was just your standard room, nothing outstanding but clean and big enough. The staff were amazing and offered great service! The animation team were also great, very entertaining! A lot have people have complained about food, neither of us got ill once and whlst it wasnt the best food it is what youd expect from any all inclusive holiday, there was meat and fish varieitys everyday which rice and or chips etc. Breakfast was more eastern european but there was toast, cereals and pastries. The whole site was extremely clean and well looked after, the pools were clean aswell and the staff would even save you a bet.It was a suitable distance from soho square and nama day, £5 taxi to whereever you wanted to go and the hotel rep spoke excellent english and could organise any trip. Highly reccoment star gazing and snorkelling!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room a bit further away as rooms around the greek theatre are pretty loud

My wife and myself stayed 10 days here from November 26th to December 6th
Firstly the hotel is possibly a three star compared to other countries 5 star,
The food was good , varied at times and as other reviews have said, temperature of food depended on whether you attended the restaurant early or late, If the portion you are given is not enough for you, give a smile and ask for more, no problem
Rooms basic but clean and comfortable, tea and coffee available in your room, all you need to do is ask at reception and they will send a kettle etc to your room (no charge)
Pools are clean and well maintained plenty of comfortable beds and parasols
There is not a beach as such, but this is over compensated by the jetties that go out beyond the reef, if you have never snorkelled now is the time to try it is fabulous (I am a Padi Diver) and there is as much to see when snorkelling
if you do not like hassle and want to go out to Naama bay or somewhere book a return trip through the hotel so that you arrange for your driver to pick you up at a designated time and place because you will be surrounded by people at the taxi rank trying to get you to go in a taxi at an extortionate rate, I can only say if you have hassle at any of the shops where they try to get you in, just say no thanks and keep walking, the other shopkeepers see this happening as you are passing and they realise that you are not interested and leave you alone
Overall we had a pleasant and peaceful stay and would recommend here to everyone

Room Tip: If you like it quiet ask for a room away from the main pool and entertainment as the entertainment...

Please take note of reviews, this hotel is terrible , just back last night from 1 week , food is just slop, nothing at all to eat, for breakfast mashed potato !!!! For dinner just food that has been mashed together from previous days , it is appalling .no meat hardly at all and no vegetables that you can eat. No snacks as stated bar's always running out of beer and wine.This is a really bad hotel
Staff only nice for tips.
Rooms are average but really need updating the shower is dirty and leaks all over floor.
There is a small restaurant called Sharks bay that did burger's , hot dogs etc and we eat there all week.Staff there were lovely.
Also they do not provise tea and coffee as stated in rooms unless you ask for
We wished we had taken notice of reviews

Room Tip: tip reception staff and ask for sea view in block 1B

We just returned from a very pleasant and relaxed week at Coral Beach Tiran. Our holiday started very well as we arrived at the reception and Amas and Mohamed Ibrahim, with a friendly smile, prompted attended our requests. The room was large, spotless clean, with a good bed and had a beautiful sea view. We could see the full moon rising every evening from our balcony. Although the toilet was also large and good, the shower room was a bit outdated. The beach, as in all hotels in Sharm El Sheikh, are man made, but the sea is blue, warm and snorkeling around the corals is just amazing, as you can see many different types of fishes. On the beach there are enough chairs e clean towels for everyone. If the food is not the best thing at Coral Beach, we could not say that it was not good. There was plenty of choices everyday, the kebab barbecue and the fresh baked bread were delicious, and the desserts were absolutely amazing. The restaurant close to the beach, Sharks Restaurant, offers a menu that you can use on All Inclusive deals, one night we had dinner under the full moon and the maitre who served us there, made our night very special. There are some shops at the hotel with very reasonable price (sweets, masks, snorkels, etc.) and also the taxi service charges a very fair price. Overall we had a great holiday at Coral Beach Tiran and differently of some reviews, we did not feel pushed to give tips to any member of staff at the hotel. Although I did not have any stomach problems, in Egypt it is common everywhere, not just at Coral Beach Tiran. This hotel has a good atmosphere and it is a great value for money. Definitely we will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view in the front line
