We have just returned from the Coral Beach Tiran on Sunday 23rd April 2006. We stayed for a week Bed and Breakfast as we took advice from trip advisor saying don't go half board as the food is awful. We agree the food at the hotel REALLY lets the place down. The breakfast does not cater for English apart from cheap brand ceral and toast. The rest of the food consists of sticky pasteries meats and cheese. This is because 99% of tourists there are Italian and Russian. The are very rude and push in front of you whenever they like apart from this we had no trouble with them.
On a brighter note the hotel itself is beautiful! The gardens are immacutely kept and are very pretty. The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern and have lovely views of Tiran Island. There is a jetty off into the sea but it looks choppy so we never ventured there. We had a massarge there which cost £13 approx. It was ok but not worth the money. The gym facilities are good and are air conditioned.
If your looking for a relaxing holiday in which you don't leave the hotel then this is the place for you!. We found that taxi's too and from the centre were a pain when we could have stayed nearer. We went there to Scuba Dive and went with Emperor Divers which were fantastic! Although MR. Diver is onsite at the Coral Beach Tiran we went with the reccomendation we were given by friends and there did not disappoint. They pick you up from your hotel and drop you off on an evening which you can't complain about.
Didn't find Nama bay strip with restuarants shops and bars that enjoyable on a night. Felt a bit unsafe at times especially getting taxi's home. There is a nice promendade though which leads onto the street with some lovely restaurants e.g. Valentino's and is more our scene a bit quieter. Went on the Luxor trip but didn't book with Thompson's double the price of the one we booked from an excursions centre in Nama Bay had an excellent time i would reccommend it.
Overall had a lovely holiday and would return but would stay in Nama Bay area the Hotel was lovely just too much out of the way for us!
