We just got back few days ago from 2 weeks in Hyatt. Like everybody mentioned before there is almost no night life or loud parties - perfect for us.
We asked in advanced for quiet room and we got it, very near the beach. Beds are comfy, room clean, AC effective and quiet.
Everyone from the staff is very helpful and very polite - after 3rd day reception remembered our name and room number - we dud not visit reception that often. I think Hyatt is most beautiful hotel in Taba, we stayed few years ago in Intercontinental. Hyatt gardens are biggest and best looking, 4 pools there are in different areas of the hotel.
Food - as hotel only offers half board we got breakfast and dinner. Breakfast we usually go eggs in different shapes, most of the time I got the poached. Pushwinder is chef who prepare eggs in the morning and he makes omelettes, fired, scramble and poached - all very tasty and cooked to your liking. With breakfast you get tea or coffee and selection of juices - free of charge.
Dinner - quite good selection, was able to find always something for myself - I'm not fussy eater. More choosy people might struggle - the choice is good but not great. All drinks are chargeable, even water.
On the food note - I think it would be good idea for the hotel to offer all inclusive add-on -payable extra.
Lunch - as you have to pay for it we often ate in diving centre where food is good and much more cheaper - tomato soup is very good and light - perfect in hot afternoon. Beer cost here 24LE in comparison to 40 in the hotel.
But one does no go to Egypt for food or drinks (Caribbean much better for that), you go there for warm sea.
And here our biggest disappointment - the coral reef. We have visited Taba in 2008 and reef next to Hyatt was colourful, full of fishes - You could not takes your eyes off it. In last 4 years reef suffered badly - most of the corals are dead and grey, fishes are still there - I don't think it will take long time for them to disappear as well.
We took snorkelling trip from diving centre - further up the gulf with hope that coral reef would be better - sadly not the case - looks like red sea is doomed. I think there are many factors - general pollution, global warming, tourists who walk on the corals, touch them, feed the fish etc there are lost of signs "don't feed the fish" but people just ignore them. And I think locals use sea like a dumping ground as well - after windy night we saw lots of rubbish on the shores, washed up by the sea. It is very sad for me to see it like this.
In the whole we went to Taba to chill out, relax get our batteries recharged and we got what we wanted, very good hotel with brilliant service and staff.
