Reviewed November 18, 2013

Have just return from 11 days at the Mexicana. I loved it there.Staff very friendly, Good rooms i had no problems. Cleanliness was great. I was a bit quite at the hotel but to be honest i like it, at least i could get a sunbed. Food was good dont expect cordon bleu there was always plenty of choice. There was not much entertainment but was not a problem. Everyone must try the Spa. Was fabulous. Very reasonable prices and they are so friendly make you feel special. I have already booked to go again in March. I loved it.

Good hotel and pleasant stay (not so disturbing "staff" like in other bigger Egyptian hotels). 10 minute walk from market - why do you need taxi? :-)

I can understand, that somebody who pays 1000 pounds for two people and for one week, is not so happy like we. We book Mexicana via Egyptian agent, so it was cheap (half board). It was enough.

Shuttle to beach - I recommend coral beach, the other one is bad, very bad - maybe only good for small children.

Shower in the room - not good working, but we were there only couple of days...

Stayed: April 2013, traveled as a couple

I enjoyed my stay, as usual, and will come back again to Mexicana.
It was so nice being back and seing familiar faces again: the staff is always welcoming and friendly.
They do try hard but you know what it's like: when there is a problem we want it fixed straight away... I've never had any problems before but this time my safety box only needed new batteries to work but it took days to get it sorted out!!
Still didn't change anything.
Love Mexicana

There must be something wrong (fishy) with all those 4 or 5 star ratings.It simply can not be that someone gives 5 or 4 stars for hotel liike this. THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE !!!

The food is bad, just bad. I have no other words for it. Not only the taste but also concidering the fact that my partner and I were sick for a couple of days. After we recovered we concidered that eating elsewhere was the best option, at whatever restaurant, as the risk could not be worse.

Mold in the bathroom, taps not working, sometimes no hot water, very unpolite reception, outside the hotel it looks like El Alamein was not that longtime ago. The area looks the same as 6 years ago when we also stayed there.

This hotel changed some time ago its name from Creative Mexicana to Mexicana Sharm Resort, I can gues why.

Actually it is a pitty, as the acomodation itself easily could be made a 4 star hotel (as it once was), if there were proper management , proper maintenance, proper..... everything.(gardens are lovely)

On the other hand I only can blame myself as I didn't check the reviews before I left.


DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS HOTEL !!

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at this hotel, and have to say it was brilliant.
Some reviewers on here seem to expect 5 star facilities at a 3 star price, but as far as this hotel is concerned it is definitely the staff that make it so warm and welcoming.

The food, without being to Gordon Ramsay standards is varied, and absolutely fine. At breakfast you wont get your bacon, beans, and sausages, but there is plenty of choice. I have a very English palette where breakfast is concerned and I was very happy with the scrambled egg, omelette, pancakes etc.

The hotel might need a lick of paint here and there, but the rooms are very clean. The other great thing was free aircon, and a mini bar/fridge.

We loved our stay at this hotel and left with heavy hearts, but we will definitely be returning when possible :)

In the past ten years I have stayed at hotels all over Sharm. My wife and I are keen scuba divers, we also like to go on excursions and see local towns and markets. In between these we love to spend relaxing times in a beautiful hotel, with stunning pool and well kept gardens, surrounded by polite, helpful staff who do everything they can to make you have an excellent holiday.
Of all the hotels we have stayed in, the Mexicana is the best and we have already booked to go back in 2014. The hotel is well placed for a 10 LE (£1!!) taxi ride to the old market or a 20 LE taxi ride to Naama Bay for busy shopping areas, nightlife and restuarants. You can get to Soho square for unde £5. The hotel is in a quiet safe street with supermarkets, chemists and off licences nearby. Avoid the trips from your travel reps at all costs. Use the hotels own trip organiser but haggle hard. The food in the hotel is different each day and there are always good thinngs to eat. Great omlettes, fried eggs at breakfast, cereals, toast, fruit etc, good soups and sandwich making mateials at lunch, in addition to local dishes. Pasta dishes are made fresh while you watch at lunch and dinner. There is barbequed food every evening as well as a roast of the day and many other things. The deserts need more sugar for western tastes, but we cured this by taking some caramel and chocolate auces toppings to dinner on our last visit. They make the lgihtest fluffiest cakes though.
The rooms were big, clean and ours has always had a lovely balcony. The soft drinks and beers are fine, but we weren't too fond of the low quality local spirits from the bar. The wine was ok if you mixed red and white to give a palatable rosey.
What really makes this hotel are the staff, the beautiful pool areas (there are two pools) and the location (quiet when you want peace but near to the beaches, shops and nightlife and waterparks and excursions). For the best watersports and diving, call Rami at Action Sports. actionsportsharm@gmail.com +20126562227.
The Mexicana is not 5 star and it does not charge five star prices. In our opinion this is the very best hotel for the money in the area. Friends of ours who have stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels say it is better than many hotels that are MUCH more expensive. We cant wait to go back next July.

Room Tip: Go for rooms near the pool
