“A Brilliant Time !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

We have just returned from the Mexicana Sharm, a family of 5 and it was great. All the staff were friendly and helpful and although they enjoyed having a laugh with us and our 10 and 13 y/o girls they treated us all with respect and knew where to draw the line. Rooms were clean, and more than adequate, beds comfy and the sofa bed in lounge was a decent size.We had our beds decorated daily. We had a problem with the air con on arrival but they sorted it immediately and without fuss. Safe in the room free of charge. The spa is superb !!! Negociate hard with Belal (great guy) who sells the treatments and you can get some superb deals!!. The massage is excellent, along with the body scrubs. All the spa staff are very professional, thanks to you all, especially Mohammed Sayed. The food is not "strictly Al a Carte". however there is plenty of choice for all, and unless your are extremely fussy you certainly wont starve! Desserts a plenty, and BBQ each night also. We did have some problems with mosquito's although they do treat all areas daily in an attempt to help with this. Strongly suggest you take some plug-ins for your room, and a spray for when you leave hotel area. Get friendly with the towel guy and he will make sure towels are on your chosen sunbeds each day, along with parasol and table. Both the pools are clean and nice to use. There is no major entertainment but there was an Egyptian "spinning" man and belly dancer one eve. All in all, value for money at the Mexicana Sharm is great, its a small friendly place for a good value holiday. Special thanks to Mohammed in the restaurant and the barman in "Amigo's" Bar who was great with our 10y/o. Hope to see you all again later in the year.

Room Tip: We had a 2 bed apt (room 340) with balcony which over looked small pool. Nice quiet area to be in, 2...

The spa is excellent - the staff are wonderful - the treatments are good. I would thoroughly recommend that whilst on holiday you treat yourself to a massage or facial. I had a facial, massage and both were excellent. I would definitely return to this hotel just so I co

Went in April booked the holiday for mums 50th birthday and absolutely LOVED every second of it an my mum was over the moon. Was weary at first due to seeing comments on this trip advisor but the bad comments couldn't be more wrong and the first thing I want to do is put it right . Hotel was fab and the staff couldn't do enough for you so friendly and welcoming. Room and hotel pool area everything was spotless ! Food was brilliant lots of choice something for every taste even myself and I'm a fussy eater! Had such a great time that we are going back this August and we cannot wait!!!

We have stayed at the Mexicana 3 times in the last year and have found it to be consistently good. The staff is friendly and remember us from our previous stays. We were fortunate to be put in an apartment even though we booked a double. I'm not sure if this was because we have stayed previously or just because it was low season. The room was excellent with 2 balconies, a lounge and a small kitchenette in addition to the standard bedroom and bathroom.
The Mexicana has a good mix of foreign and Egyptian guests. The food in the restaurant is a good mix of European and local food. There was plenty of variety too. Save space for the desserts!
The Mexicana is popular with divers (particularly from Ocean College who used to stay at the Ocean Club). Therefore the half board option is a good option if you are diving. The Tavern 2 is a 5 min walk away - a good place to get cold beer after diving. There is a useful and friendly shop near the hotel that sells food and souvenirs etc.
I look forward to staying at the Mexicana again and recommend it. A great place to relax!

Room Tip: Romms with a pool view and balcony are great value!

Hi we stayed a week here,and definatly got what we paid for ,rooms clean gardens beautifull staff friendly.food wasn't to my taste but that's because I am used to very spicy food however there is a lot of variety and is edible.resturant staff excellent I think the reception staff could learn a few tips from them as they were a bit moody. Spa I didn't really like it was ok for a bit of pampering but not good value for money after haggling I paid 400 le for massage an Turkish bath and scrub. So overpriced,the spa people were lovely tho. No probs with mosquitoes at all I took my 2 ur old he was absolutly fine and the Egyptians loved him. Overall it's gud if ur budgeting, personally I wouldn't go again not coz of the hotel but I think it's always better to pay a bit extra get a little luxery wen ur away from home. By the way visit Sami the man at the perfume shop few doors away so funny and often we'd go there just for a laugh.he made our stay memorable.

As soon as we walked through the doors to this hotel, we knew we had made the right choice. The staff are very friendly and courteous. Will go out of their way to help you. Our room had a huge sun terrace and overlooked the immaculate gardens. Ok some of the tiles in the shower were a bit grubby and the curtains had seen better days, but overall the room was very clean and well layed out. Bed linen was changed every other day and towels changed every day. The food was really good, with loads of choices. Not one dicky tummy between us. If your looking for a relaxing holiday this is where to come. There was no entertainment whilst we stayed but we were not looking for that. Narma Bay is a short taxi ride away for anything and everything you need. Mercatto shopping mall just around the corner. McDonalds and KFC deliver to the hotel. Just ask reception and they will call them for you, then you place your order. Very quick and efficient. Look out for the Mega Mac - 4 Burgers!
Both pools very clean. The smaller one being the better of the two in our opinion. Overall a great hotel, great staff, and very clean. We booked transfers when booking this holiday, but discovered after a two hour trip from airport to hotel on a coach that it would of been easier to get cab straight from airport. Cost about ten pounds, and saves having to go round all other hotels picking people up and only takes 20 mins. Will most definetly be going back. Absolutely loved the place.

Room Tip: Top floor overlooking the gardens
