Two week stay at end of Feb 2013 with family. Two connecting rooms (2102 & 3) both large, one with twins (2) and one with a double (3).
This was our 4th year in Taba but 1st at this hotel, we knew what to expect as we took time out last year to have a look at the hotels in the area on a cloudy day and picked this to come to next due to the staff reception including welcome drinks we got given and the facilities we were shown.
Subsequently the holiday did not let us down.
The hotel is about a 40 min walk from the large complex of hotels at Taba Heights but that is fine if all you want is a sun/pool holiday as everything is in the hotel grounds.
From the moment we arrived, more welcome drinks, to the minute we left the staff did their utmost to keep us happy and fed and watered. All the staff are excellent and go out of their way for you. Special mentions go to the following staff who should all be put up for employee of the month:
Mahmoud - Reception
Mohamed (with new baby) - Restaurant Waiter
Kamal - Maitre d'
There was only one thing wrong this year and that was the Animation Team (AT) who were exceedingly poor, did not bother with you much if you were not Italian, and who did not bother to organise any daytime activities and the evening shows they put on were an embarrasment. However, if you are not bothered about this it does not detract from your holiday - it just does not add anything and having been at other hotels where the AT can add so much fun it is a shame.
The professional shows, which there were 3 of during each week, were excellent, just a shame that the AT did not introduce or thank them - ignorant!
The beds around the pool are not very comfortable but the ones on the beach make up for this as they are super with large matresses.
The rooms are clean and linen changed regularly.
There were 2 disabled in our group so the fact that the hotel has lifts was greatly appreciated.
Management were always seen doing the rounds checking up on anything and whenever something went wrong like the TV went blank Engineering were down within 10 minutes.
The hotel was quiet but this is the same all over Egypt since the revolution.
I would certainly recommend this hotel for a relaxing holiday as there is none of the awful big screen TV football etc.
