I stayed at the Hilton Taba for a week in March with my family and as soon as I returned home, I was booking my holiday to come back again. I returned just under four weeks later on my own and stayed on this occassion for two wonderful weeks.
As soon as I arrived back at the Hilton, I was greeted with huge smiles from Anwar and the other reception staff and the very attentive and kind GM Chris Sherman and his amazingly helpful and extremely friendly PA Kariman. During my whole entire stay here, every minute of every day was the perfect holiday. Every member of staff were polite and curtious towards me ... Ali at the pool would be ready every single morning with a fresh towel and a happy smile and nothing was never too much trouble for him. All of the waiters at the restaurants would be attentive and very pleasant to talk to, everyone of them making an effort to ask how I was and if there was anything that I needed. Ahmed and Ahmed in the rainbow bar were particularly brilliant ... Always remembering my drinks order and keeping me entertained with great conversation.
I hadnt been diving in over 5 years and luckily managed to get this oppourtunity during my holiday. A special mention to Hugh and Edriss down at the dive centre for an excellent dive. Also to Ranger who took us out for a snorkelling session which was most enjoyable and very fun.
The rooms were always lovely and clean and the towel art was always entertaining and everything I needed was always provided to me. The food was also always lovely in all restaurants and a special trip down to Casa Taba should definately be made as the food in there is probably one of the best meals I have ever eaten.
On a day to day basis, there was always something to do ... Aqua gym, volleyball, football, yoga and water polo and much more which was ran by the Animation Team with Sam in charge. Sam always has a beaming smile on his face and does his very best to be everyones friend. There is nothing you could not like about this young man .. He is kind, intelligent, curtious, well mannered and has an excellent sense of humour and overall personality. He takes time out of his day and even uses his free time to make sure the guests are happy and well looked after. He, aswell as the other entertainment lads are very good at thier jobs and will always make time to speak to you. Every evening here was always different entertainment which was always brilliant. The weekly fire show and beach party (which includes Rady the Animator and his daring talents) is always an excellent evening with a great disco to finish every night off which is led by DJ and Animator Tommy.
All staff at this hotel make this place such a success ... It is amazing to see such a wonderful country and culture being represented by such fantastic people. I will be returning to Hilton Taba in the very near future to see the wonderful friends that I have made here. If you want a fun, relaxing and entertaining holiday then this would be the place to come to.
