“My 2nd Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

Wow, another wonderful holiday in Sofitel, Taba Heights. It is amazing the amount of guests who have stayed at the hotel many many times. Every member of staff is so welcoming and eager to please. Check in is so swift and efficient and the Reception staff just take care of everything on arrival. I am always so happy to be back there.

There is plenty to do if you wish to be active but at the same time it is such a peaceful place to be that one completely unwinds. The sea is so clear with beautiful fish and plenty of viewing options even if you do not wish to snorkel.

The Recreation Team take good care of you around the pool and on the beach and the Animation Team are constantly entertaining, particularly enjoyable is the daily aqua gym.

The waiting staff could not be more helpful and friendly.

I can't wait to return later in the year.

Room Tip: The Plaza Rooms have a very large balcony with loungers, chairs and table.

We visited for the third time in six months, that is how much we love Sofitel. The quality and value for money is outstanding and staff are of such a high quality. I would dearly love to visit other parts of Egypt but think that I would be sadly disappointed as the people in Taba set a great standard. No hassling you if you go into a shop. I took a bracelet back to the jeweller at the hotel that I had bought previously and it was altered free of charge. We stayed in block one on this occasion, think I would probably opt for block three in future as it is quieter. I can't add anything to anyone else's rave reviews except use the the laundry if you get a chance it is so cheap and so beautifully cleaned and presented!



Please Thomson keep this hotel as I won't go anywhere else now.

Room Tip: Block three top floor is great if you have good mobility.

This was our second time to Sofitel and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The staff here are truly pleasant, very helpful and always have a smile on their face. The rooms are spotless and cleaned daily with fresh towels and bottled water replaced in your fridge daily. The restaurant staff are great and always there to clear your table and refresh your drinks. We had a lovely young chap, I think his name was Shibal, he was so friendly and always smiling he looked after us during our weeks stay. Cant really complain about anything and would definitely visit for a third time.
The Thompson flight however was crippling for me as the leg space is far too tight, I am 5ft 9 and my legs where totally squashed in and ended up with swollen ankles when I got off the aircraft. I think it was a Boeing 757 and I would definitely not wish to use this aircraft again if flying for more than two hours. Feel sorry for you if you 6ft or over, even the head rest juts out so you cant put your head back and relax. Worst flight ever!
All in all though the hotel is well worth a visit.

We have just returned from a two week holiday here, we couldn't have wished for a better location. The hotel stands out amongst the others it has a great ambience and the amenities are of a great five star standard.The staff can,t do enough for you and are all cheerful hard working and very polite. Our room was in block 3 it had a king size bed a lovely bathroom and large living area and balcony with sea view. The restaurant catered for many tastes and the food was of good standard.
We felt at ease as there were mostly English and French staying at the same time.
I would recommend this holiday for anyone who likes to relax and sunbathe read and snorkel it is a quiet resort. The wi-fi was handy and free.
I understand many people return to this hotel and I can see why. We thought it was good value.
It was nice to stay in such a pretty location with abit of culture.

Room Tip: We emailed the relations manager in advance and got upgraded to a room with a king size bed and part...

We returned to Taba in May 2013 and stayed at our second home, Sofitel Taba Heights. We will never stay anywhere else when we visit Taba, the hotel, staff, food and drink tick every box for our holidays.
The hotel is really well maintained and the rooms are really spacious. When we checked in on our last visit the staff remembered us and even gave us the same room again! My partner is vegetarian and when the chefs found this out they made him some local dishes to try, some of the best dishes we've eaten.
The beach and sea are kept as clean as possible and the snorkelling is just fantastic.

I would recommend Sofitel Taba Heights to anyone wanting a hot, relaxing beach holiday any day! We will be back next year.

This is our second time we have visited this hotel, the first being in 2011, and the hotel has improved even more!! The service is top notch, and you really feel like royalty. We were looked after so well! Thank you to Halal our housekeeper for making sure our room was nice and clean, and we were topped up with water.Such a nice guy too. Thank you to the sultan bar team, always have a smile on thier face. Last but not least thank you to Mohammed and Sheta in the Alladin restaurant for making sure every dining experience was a good one. We noticed one major change since our last visit. In 2011 my husband to be was able to wear smart shorts to eat in the evenings. This is now not the case, so make sure that gentleman take trousers as you will be wearing Sofitel own brand ones if you dont.Hoping to go back for a week next year, however we hear that Thomson may be taking it off of their hotel lists.Why? this hotel has so many returning visitors and is such a nice little gem!!!

Room Tip: b lock 3 is quieter and a little further away from the hustle and bustle, also has amazing sea views...
