Hotel lovely and clean. Beds made daily. Food good - large variety in buffet. Staff excellent, very friendly and attentative ( attend the restaurant once and your drink order is remembered the whole of your stay!!). Pool staff can't do enough for you. 10 mins walk from Naama bay and shops, night clubs.

Beach area not so good, went once and not again too many sunbeds in small space but other than that brilliant holiday.

Room Tip: 2218 is a ground floor room overlooking the pool area so nice and convenient

Having just spent 2 weeks at this hotel, I really enjoyed this hotel and thought the location was great. The staff are all mostly very helpful and well mannered. The hotel itself is split into two sections, Rosetta and Jasmine. British holiday makers are usually located in the Jasmine part of the hotel.

The Jasmine side has 2 pools, both are a good sizes too. Rosetta has 2 small pools, and there's also a small tiny pool for kids. The beaches the hotel use are owned by other companies and are about 10 and 20 minutes walk away from the hotel. Wind beach which is owned by Pacha the hotel provides are bus shuttle service (however you can walk it) These are very busy beaches and the sunbeds are crammed next to each other. For me, that's not my idea of a nice day on the beach, so we used them for one day and didn't go back. We asked one day of another smaller hotel could we use there's, for £3 each it was well worth it.

The food in the hotel, I can't complain at all. There was always something to eat. Breakfast you have all the usual breakfast items. Lunch is very similar to Dinner, there's a chef cooking some sort of meat everyday or making a pasta dish. You can ask for what you want in the pasta dish. Afternoon the only difference is you can make toasted sandwiches. There are 2 restaurants one on each part of the hotel. You can use both, however both have exactly the same food.
3 of the pool bars you can get snacks, I.e burger and chips or a chicken stir fry sandwich. Only I can say which for a place in heat, they don't do ice cream. Its the 1st all inclusive I've stayed in that don't.
You can only have wine with your evening meal. It's not available all day within the all inclusive. The waiters are very good at their jobs, make you feel very welcome. We tipped one on our 1st night, and when we got back to our room, he'd taken a basket of fruit for us. Very nice of him and a kind thought.

The cleaners are very good at towel art, don't be surprised if one day you walk in and there's a crocodile on your bed. Rooms are kept very clean, hot water, tv, hair dryer and towels changed enough times throughout your stay. We stayed in a top floor room, which we really liked.

The in Rosetta reception there is a cash machine. You can ex change your currency to Egyptian pounds too. These are a great idea, ex change rate is good too.

Last but not least, if you want to venture out and use a taxi. I can't recommend Ramses enough, his desk is right next to the cash machine and the main door or Rosetta. One of our group had an accident while in Sharm, and we used him all the time for hospital appointments and so on. We also used him to go to a few different places, soho sq and El Farnar beach. His prices are good too, and a great service. Nice cars, with seat belts.

My friend and I have visited this hotel twice now (in the space of 2 months!!!) It's home from home -the staff are incredible - so friendly and simply can't do enough to make your stay perfect! The food is beautifully cooked by the lovely Chef Mahmoud and every night he would come to our table to ask if we had enjoyed our meal.It's little touches like this that, I feel draw me back to a place. Rooms - fabulous and cleaned every day - great towel art too! Don't believe some of the harsh comments about Tropicana Jasmine Club - go online , book it and see for yourself - go on - you're only a click away from a truly memorable holiday!

Room Tip: When booking ask for a pool view in Jasmine near the Italian restaurant

A follow up to my review of the Tropicana Jasmine from last year, we once again visited the Jasmine in January this year for a 2 week winter break.

On arrival at the hotel it was nice to receive a warm welcome back from the reception and porters at the Rosetta, we were quickly booked in and taken up to our room at the Jasmine.
Prior to going we had emailed the hotel asking for the same room as last year and I am pleased to say that is what we were given down at the new section.

I am not going to say much about the room as I gave a full description in my last review and nothing has really changed since then, you can see that review by following the link below this review.

Basically the rooms have either good sized twin beds or 2 large (queen size?) beds, these for me are just right not too soft and not overly hard, plenty of storage, a flatscreen TV and fridge. There isn’t a safe in the room you are provided one free of charge down in reception of the Rosetta.
The bathroom has a good sized shower and your toiletries (shower gel, shampoo, soap) are all replenished daily.
There are plenty of clean towels supplied and changed daily and the bed linen gets changed every couple of days with the rooms getting a thorough service every day.

There are 2 sections to the Jasmine the older section beside the large top pool and main restaurant and the newer section down beside the small pool, this is where most of the ‘BRITISH’ are given rooms although this is not guaranteed and there is a mix of nationalities put here.
There are no heated pools and although it was mainly warm 27 degrees during the day the pools are freeeezing. You also have the use of the 3 pools and the pool bar at the Rosetta .
There are pool bars at the lower pool in the Rosetta and at both pools in the Jasmine, the upper pool has a swim up section for the brave or Summer months.

The All Inclusive will let you get a wide selection of locally produced spirits and a lager, cocktails are not named and just made up with a mix of drinks.

The restaurant at the Jasmine IMHO has more atmosphere than down at the Rosetta and that is where we ate most of the time.
There is a wide selection of food available however it can be a bit repetitive, chicken, fish, chicken, salad, chicken etc, everything is perfectly good and tasty.

Wine is only available during meal (lunch / dinner) and white and red are available, unfortunately they still haven’t sorted out the Rose, adding white to red, water or soda to red is what is presented for Rose, to be honest I enjoy the odd red wine but couldn’t drink the wine however my wife liked it and she does say I am a bit of a wine snob.

There was more cutlery and plates available in the restaurant this time however there were still the odd occasions when you had to wait but hey.

Staff in the restaurant are fantastic and really can’t do enough for you and will go out of their way to try and ensure you are happy with your meal, they will regularly come and get you a refill of your drink and also get you tea or coffee.

On a personal note to the extremely arrogant Swedish guest there is NO need to be abusive and shout and swear at the staff because you didn’t get a coffee as soon as you walked in at breakfast, if it is SO important go get your own coffee.

Thanks again to Waleed, Mohamid, Bassem, Ahmed and all the staff in the restaurant including my friend Side.

The new spa at the hotel is superb and you can get a full range of treatments at prices vastly lower than back here in the UK, my wife had a couple of therapy’s and said they were spot on.
Guests also have free use of the gym in the spa.

Now for the ‘nagging people’ around the pool, yes there are some sellers coming to offer you trips, a paper, a massage or a dive however once you have spoken to them and refused or accepted they won’t bother you again for the rest of your stay other than to maybe have a polite conversasion.
No hassle at all, the biggest naggers were some of the guests and their whinging over small trivial matters.


The entertainment was improved this year with various acts being brought in from outside, the fire show was particularly good I thought.
If you fancy going up to Soho Square there is a night out up there through the animation team and it costs only £2 return on a coach, much cheaper than Thomson or getting a taxi.

Still no Wi-Fi available although you can get free Wi-Fi at the small café in the mall at the Rosetta.

We had a problem with our hot water one day and I mentioned it to the customer relations advisor Alex and she had it sorted VERY quickly, Alex is lovely and you see her going around checking various areas for cleanliness and food temperature and storage.


Really not much more to say other than as I mentioned before the staff at the hotel are some of the nicest I have ever met on all my trips throughout the world and are without doubt one of the biggest assets the hotel has to offer so a little civility and a small tip wouldn’t go a miss.

This is not a posh 5 star hotel, nor is it priced as such, it is officially classed as a 4 star and it sits within the 3-4 star bracket and what it delivers is nice clean, modern accommodation with excellent attentive staff.

Having been twice you might be wondering was it a disappointment going back, well the answer is an emphatic no, in fact we will be returning for 3 weeks next January.

We stayed in the Tropicana Jasmine club. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and that carried on throughout our entire stay (which unfortunately was only 1 week, 3rd-10th feb 2013). We saw some negative comments about this hotel and very nearly didn't go but as this was a special deal we thought sod it!!! We are SOOOO pleased we went with it and it was probably our best holiday ever!
The rooms... Not had a good nights sleep for months and we both slept through the night here. Very comfy. Bathroom has all you need- HUGE shower (no bath which didnt bother us at all) hair dryer and fresh towels daily.Mini fridge too which is always handy.
Food... We don't understand how people can moan about the food here. Always a good choice, soups, meats, pasta, veggies, salads, breads, fruit, desserts... Always a chef on cooking something fresh be it eggs and omelettes for breakfast or stir-frys and fresh cooked meat for lunch & dinner. All waiters so friendly and cant do enough for you.
The pool area was great. Again, staff always smiling and chatty. Two pools on Jasmine side, one relaxing and the other with games. We've read reviews complaining about no heated pool, but with all the information we had about the hotel, nowhere does it say there is one. Ours was cold but was very refreshing and great to sit in the pool at the bar with a beer!
We cant say enough about all the staff here. Always got a smile on their faces (except mabe one or two in the Rosetta side of the hotel). Very special thanks to Hany, Ibraheem (barmen) & Abdoulla (pool towel guy) so happy despite working VERY long hours for very little money.
Now, U MUST TRY MASSAGES!!! Karim works in the spa just next door to the hotel and walks round selling different massages and treatments. Ask him for a free on the spot neck or back CRACK !!! It was SO good. He invited us to look round the spa before our treatment and it is stunning. Very modern and professional- well worth it. We (and everyone) got on so well with Karim, has so much time for you and VERY funny.
We travelled with Thomson. Our Rep, Scott Watson did a great job of looking after us and always happy to answer any questions. Helped us plan our week with our excursions. So much stuff to do... We did the VIP Cruise/ Snorkeling (amazing), 'Friday Night Feeling' with reps (Its NOT a pub crawl lol,brilliant night) and (NO hassle) SOHO Square (beautiful place) We will be going back for the quad bikes, camel rides, star gazing in desert and the 101 other things to do there!
We could go on forever about this place, we loved every minute of it. Just remember a holiday is what you make it but the hotel, surroundings and staff made it even better. Made A LOT of friends here too. VERY HAPPY Paul & Jody, Norwich.

Room Tip: We travelled with Thomson which we think had a certain block. We overlooked the relaxing pool, room...

I stayed in this hotel Jan 2013, and had a fabulous time despite some negative comments!! Egypt is experiencing country difficulties and tourism has been effected, these people work for low salaries and rely on tips so of course they like us all with limited income are a little down at times, but I found them all to be helpful and courteous. The food was tasty and plenty of choice. yes Egyptians were also in the hotel, but this is their country and they also like to go on vacation too, their habits are a little different to ours but for those moaners out there....don't be so fickle, you are only on holiday for a short time, so enjoy the beautiful sights Sharm has to offer and experience the culture!! The beach was kept clean and tidy, the staff very helpful...the house keeping was superb!!! And my house man was always leaving towel decorations daily. On whole the hotel was kept wonderfully clean and all staff a credit to the hotel.. I will be back end April! Shazza.

Stayed here for a week in January 2013, was worried about some reviews etc.
Which I shouldn't of because the hotel was great!
Staff are amazing they will bend over backwards for you,
We stayed in the quiet part of the hotel across the Italian restaurant best area of the hotel was lush!
The Egptians down Nama bay can be very annoying tho very pesky and always bothering you, just say NO and walk past!
Meet some awesome people at this hotel the animation team are fab Jamie and jade.
Will be going back for sure!!
