My partner and I stayed at the Sofitel back in January for a week long winter's break.After a lot of deliberation we picked Sofitel because of it's worldwide reputation and high standards,how wrong we were!.This hotel has gone from the transition of Half board to catering for All inclusive and this has seriously affected the standards.The food was unappertising,bland and their was very little choice,the service also poor.The good thing was the hotel offers the dine around option so you can dine in the other hotels for your evening meal but you have to pay for drinks which completely defeats the object of going all inclusive!The evening entertainment is lack lustre and repetitive and the only place you can get wine is in the restaurant, so we spent many an evening dining late on.
The hotel is ideally situated next to the beach along a strip of other hotels and there are a selection of swimming pools you can use,aswell as cheap plastic sun loungers.
We upgraded our room and it was absolutely perfect with a spectacular sea view.Their are not many places in the world where you can stand on your balcony and see 4 other countries and the sunsets are just amazing.
All in all we had a wonderful time in Taba Heights but wish we had stayed in the Hyatt next door as that hotel is 5* not a 3* hotel pretending to be a 5* due to it's brand name!!
