This modest mid-range hotel is a good choice if you are looking for a quiet time in Sharm el Sheikh. While this is not one of the top hotels in the area, it is certainly a pleasant place to spend your holiday with agreeable surroundings and very friendly staff.

    Location 5.0 /10

    The Mexicana Sharm Resort is located in Hadaba (also known as Ras Um Sid) which is the zone furthest from the airport. It is around 5 miles away from the neighbouring zone Naama Bay and 13 miles from the airport. Surrounding the hotel in a fairly quite road, are other properties. The hotel's two beaches are one and two miles away.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The exterior of the hotel is fairly typical of the architecture found in the area. A low-rise, cream structure with simple tan coloured arches and a large covered terrace up to the right as you look at the building will be your first encounter with the Mexicana. The lobby, divided into two parts, the reception area (possibly a little small given the number of people checking in at times) and a seating area, is bright and nicely furnished. The leather couches' cushions add colour to the space you'll find various decorative objects and books upon the shelves in the seating area. The hotel has two pools: a small one (heated) just the other side of the lobby and a large main pool further into the complex. The latter enjoys sun all day long, the surrounding buildings not being on top of the pool, and both the main and small pool are served by bars (the larger of which also serves snacks.) There are sufficient sun beds and parasols for all and enough space so as not to be on top of your neighbour. The hotel's wellness centre, which opened six months ago, is small and not particularly professional, but does have a decent gym (free), sauna, steam rooms, jacuzzi, massage rooms and a beauty salon. As well as a diving centre found on the hotel's coral beach, which offers courses and dives for all levels, on site you can enjoy tennis, volleyball, basketball, table tennis as well as the billiard room. At the time of our visit the hotel had wifi only around the large pool area although it should soon cover the entire property and will cost around 20EGP for half an hour. The grounds of the hotel are fairly well maintained with the characteristic bougainvillea plants giving a gorgeous pink hue to the hotel. The buildings which house the rooms themselves (only ever two stories in height) are all nicely kept, if not a little plain, with wooden trellises and balconies on view wherever you look. Be careful when walking around the complex at night as certain areas are not very well lit.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The hotel comprises 194 rooms divided into three categories: 106 standard rooms, the overwhelming majority of which have a pool view, 76 apartments and 12 suites. Standard rooms are basic but functional and have a sofa and coffee table on which you'll find a nice gesture in the form of flowers. The marble bathrooms are a decent size and while not dirty per se, seem a little grubby. The apartments, which are correct, boast a decent sized kitchen with dining table and chairs which is right next to the open plan sitting room with couch, sofa, coffee table, rug and television. The suites all have a sofa bed in the lounge and in the bathroom you'll find a small basket of toiletries. The rooms have individual air conditioning, fridge or minibar, satellite television, hairdryer and safe. All the bathrooms have showers. You might want to ask not to be accommodated in one of the older rooms as these, especially the bathrooms, are in need of renovation.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel has three restaurants. The main one, just next to the main swimming pool, serves, like almost all hotels in Sharm, an international buffet which changes on a bi-weekly basis. The food is nothing exceptional, although this remains true for many a hotel in this part of the world, and the choice is modest. It would also be fair to say that space is a little tight although all the waiting staff are excellent and extremely welcoming. The other two restaurants, both la carte, serve dinner only. You have the choice between The Steak House, just off the lobby, or Alfredo, an Italian joint with a terrace our front. The hotel has two bars, Las Palmas, which serves snacks and is next to the main pool, and Amigos which is on the terrace just above the small pool and which remains open until late. There is also a night club above the lobby area which can be heard even from rooms further back in the hotel.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The hotel has two beaches which Is impressive given its size. Seeing as the Mexicana is not situated right on the coast, you'll need to take a minibus to get there, but these are free of charge and make regular return journeys throughout the day. On our visit we were unable to visit the sand beach as renovation work was underway, however this should be finished by now. The coral beach, which is shared with a number of other hotels, is divided into two, with upper and lower parts. Despite being very quiet, the quality of sand is not fantastic and it can get pretty windy. The two areas, however, are completely flat and there is a direct access to the water as well as jetties for diving. There are enough loungers (a little old) and parasols for the number of sunbathers and a snack bar on the beach can meet modest needs. The water, as elsewhere, is extremely clear and is a good area for diving.

    To know

    While a large percentage of guests at the Mexicana are from Britain, the hotel also welcomes holiday-makers from Eastern Europe, mainly Russia and Poland. Smoking is allowed in most parts of the hotel although it is restricted in some areas, such as the restaurant. The hotel is very family-friendly although it doesn't have an animation team or programme. Kids can amuse themselves, with adult supervision, in the playground area.

      Quaint, quiet and compact. That's the Sharm Inn Amarein in a nut shell. This unassuming little hotel proves that very often good things do indeed come in small packages. It offers a lot for a hotel of its size and is one of the best little hotels in the area. If you're looking to get away for a week as a couple and want peace and quiet and a wide choice of activities then this is the place for you.

      Despite its name claiming the contrary, this hotel is not enormous, but in fact is just the right size if you are a couple coming away for a relaxing week away from the UK. It offers peace and quiet as well as all round good service and is of a decent size when taking into consideration the number of rooms in this hotel. A sound choice for your Sharm break.

      One of two sister hotels right next to one another, the Dreams Beach Resort is a large complex right on the Red Sea. The hotel is fairly basic in terms of its quality but does have all the facilities to ensure an enjoyable family break. Offering great choice, buckets of space and a great beach, this hotel would suit those families looking for a lively atmosphere looking to get away for a week or so.

      One of the 'first line' hotels in Sharm el Sheikh, the Shores Amphoras is a large complex on the sea front with all the facilities one looks for in a hotel, and then some. It can cater to pretty much any holiday-makers' needs whether they be friends, family, or couples. The hotel offers a wide range of possibilities in terms of food, accommodation and activities and is a well kept, well run establishment. You could do a lot worse if you are looking for a mid- to top-end place to stay in this part o the world.

      The Jaz Belvedere Hotel is easily one of Sharm el Sheikh best quality resorts. With its beautiful interiors and very well maintained exteriors, the Belvedere is more of a hotel than a resort. Directly on the beach, the hotel is small enough to retain intimacy and large enough not to feel claustrophobic after a week. The Belvedere is definitely one of our favourites.

      An all-round good quality hotel compared to most hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. The extension of the Hilton Shark's Bay is neat and well maintained and is separate from the original part of the resort. There is also nothing Egyptian about the place; one could be anywhere in the world. This part of the hotel lacks in atmosphere but is relaxing and guests are guaranteed a fairly good quality room.

      The Oriental Rivoli is without doubt one of the classiest hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. Its sumptuous decoration must be the finest in the resort and all of its services exude quality, from its staff to its food. Best suited for couples or groups of friends, due to its lack of animation or a kids club, it is the perfect place for relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation.
