“A lovely place to relax”
Reviewed 3 June 2011

I was stunned at how kind and helpful the staff were. Nothing was ever too much for them. In the main dining area it was difficult for me to carry my own plate to my table once I had put the food onto it. Someone in uniform was sure to want to help! (Yes, I am old, but not THAT old!) The room was enormous, well-equipped and constantly supplied with fresh drinks, soft and water, straight to the fridge. The sheets were regularly changed and the bathroom kept neat and tidy.
It is a shame the place was not very full, but bearing in mind the recent regime change, I imagine people are a little chary of coming to Egypt at present.
Food was a little predicatble, though specialist restaurants offered variety at a small extra cost. Drinks were free as well, including many alcoholic, which sometimes led to people becoming just a little over-the-top. It was lovely to share the place with so many parents with young children.
The pool and the beach are delightful, kept clean and well-staffed.

Room Tip: I was in cheapest and it was absolutely fine.

I have just returned from Tia Heights and did not stop having fun for 7 days! I went with my Grandmother but was still able to meet other people my age to hang out in the evening with. The hotel guests came from many different countries and everyone was very friendly. The staff were amazing, really helpful, friendly and funny! It is 24 hours drinking and the food is fresh and there is a good choice. I was warned that egyptian food would make you ill but the whole time I was fine. There were plenty of activities to do everyday like volleyball and water polo, the beach was beautiful and the pool refreshing. The manager was very helpful too, always checking everthing was good and all requests were met. There was something for everyone. There was childrens entertainment in the evening and a disco for the adults.

The extra activies were endless and reasonable, i was doing something different everyday. As a first time diver I found the local diving centre vey reasonable, very safe, organised and they really want to make sure you have a good time.

The hotel is located on Makardi Bay and you and walk along there past other hotels and there ae things to do like get henna, quad biking and horse riding.

I would recommend this hotel for any type of holiday! I'll be going back with friends next time!

I ve just returned from yet another excellent holiday at Tia Heights, I was there with my elderly mother who is reliant on a wheelchair, the staff are so friendly and welcoming it s like going home, all staff from the highest position to the lowest cannot do enough for you. The service is exceptional, one evening I happened to mention to the MD, Michael, that the ramp leading into the reception area was difficult for me to use as the gradiant was quite steep, the next morning a new ramp had been installed.

There is a wide variety of food choice with different restraunts to sample, all providing lovely fresh cooked food. If there is something you want that is not on the menu all you have to do is ask and the chefs will prepare it for you.

The hotel is set in beautiful grounds that are maintained to a high standed, the pool is the biggest, best and cleanest I ve ever been in, the pool attendants are constantly cleaning the pool and the surrounding area.

The rooms are well maintained and most have undergone total refurbishment, the fridge is stocked with water and three types of fizzy drink.

.The animation team are friendly and produce excellent shows, they are on the go all day, the activities they provide are varied and fun so never a dull moment if you want to be active, but if like me you prefer to relax and soak up the sun, then Tia Heights is the perfect place to do it. We are already planning our next trip and this time taking more of the family with us.

Room Tip: poll view rooms are lovely

What a superb holiday !! Truly magical. Wonderful hotel and so efficiently managed. Hotel surrounded by water and various points accessible by little bridges - reminds one of a miniature Venetian setting. 20 out of 10 for all staff who are so polite and helpful in every respect, give of their all and appear to be industrious at all times. Child friendly. Many activities available to indulge in at the hotel or on the beach for both Adults and Children and entertainment every evening in the hotel Disco. There is also Internet facilities available. Food varied and of excellent quality and some is even cooked fresh while you wait.by the chefs. Took 3 trips during my week there which were well worth the investment. On the trip to Luxour we were so well informed by the guide en route that I feel I understand about Egyptian culture a lot more. What else can one say about this hotel except that you must go there then you will see what I have felt. Hats off to the Manager for such a well run hotel and all the staff for making my week an enjoyable one. Just wish it has been 2 weeks. I would certainly recommend the Hotel to people and would have no hesitation on returning at a future date. Thank you to all those that made my holiday so enjoyable.

We had a great Easter break at the Tia Heights. The Hotel was nicely full. Food choice was good from a large buffet style service - most food was cooked to order in front of you, by the chefs Very close to the clean beach with great opportunity to snorkel and see the fish and corals. Animation team were really cool - Antonio does a great acrobatic dance routine. Quad bikes picked up at hotel and we had a fantastic run out to an isolated beach across the desert.
we will be going again.

Room Tip: Pick a room looking out over the pools.

A lovely big hotel set in well kept gardens with a massive pool that stretched from the hotel walls to within a few yards from the beach with plenty of sunbeds so no getting up early to put your towels down. . ALL the staff were very friendly with big smiles and an eagerness to talk to you from the gardeners and cleaning staff, the bar and pool staff, the waiters just about every one. The rooms were very clean and spacious, with fridge which was replenished with fizzy drinks and bottled water. The pool and garden area was well kept with plenty of plants and trees, well landscaped. The beach was sandy and clean with plenty of sun beds and parasols. The sea was as you see in pictures, blues and turquoises and very very clear . On our second week we met micheal the fairly new M.D, and was very impressed with the way he talked to as many people as he could, getting input about the hotel, good and bad from all nationalities. We saw him at early breakfast right through till late evening every day, usually walking around chatting to the guests making sure they were being taken care of. We got to know him on a personal level and we liked the way he would talk to his staff personally and not leave everything to notices and memos pinned to the wall. There was a good choice of food through out the day but i did agree with some of the comments that they could vary the way they cooked the meat and fish. The only other comment is that, as the hotel does not have many facilities near by we thought the shuttle bus should have made more frequent trips to Hurgada and stop in the new Hurgada (near the new hotels that has a long parade of shops) as well as the marina area. over all a great holiday i would recommend to anyone.
