Having made a big mistake when we last went to Egypt (not Makadi bay) by booking an absolutely diabolical hotel after having been taken in by a lot of fake reviews, I am dithering about committing to the Fort Arabesque even though it looks perfect for us. The reviews are very good, but just like last time quite a few of them are the poster's 1st review and very short which makes me nervous and I couldn't bear 2 weeks of what we had to endure last time. The price is similar to last time too and considering that was 2 years ago it just makes me wonder even more. The one thing about the last hotel was that the staff would do absolutely anything for the guests to make things as good as they possibly could but that was because they themselves knew, and would openly admit, that the hotel was c***. People are now saying how wonderfully helpful, friendly and attentive the Fort Arabesque staff are and it just makes me a bit anxious.
When I look at the photos it all looks lovely but please, please, please can anyone reassure me that this hotel really is as nice as it seems?
PS I realise I've missed the 'u' off ' Arabesque'but it won't let me edit the title!Edited: 11 February 2014, 09:17
