We have recently returned from a 2 week trip to the Sofitel with Thomson and had a very enjoyable stay. This was our 2nd visit to the Red Sea. Our first was to Marsa Alam. My husband is a keen underwater photographer and we were amazed at the variety of fish to be seen snorkelling off the jetty's at both the Sofitel and the Hyatt. We encountered many species including rays we had not seen else where, different moray eels, turtles and octopus. The coral reef off the Hyatt is excellent too, although in windy conditions not advisable to go in unless you are confident in the water. Consequently we thought the location to be excellent for our needs. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The atmosphere around the hotel relaxing, rooms clean and plenty of choice to eat in the restaurants. Some guests did complain the food was not 5 star, but then everywhere is having to cut back even restaurants in the UK are cutting back on quality using cheaper cuts of meat etc! But we found plenty of choice and never suffered any upset tummy. We were expecting to suffer from tummy problems based on our first experience to the Egypt so on our first day visited the pharmacy so we were prepared but we never required it. They wash all the food etc with bottled water so we were pleasantly suprised not to suffer any ill effects. We would love to come back here but unfortunately Thomson are pulling the plug on flights to Taba, and I believe Longwood will be too in the New Year. Great shame because we do not want to take a flight to Sharm and travel 3 hours by road up to Taba Heights. So come on you travel companies - up your game and look at flights to Taba. The only problem that may inhibit this is any further problems in Egypt or Syria escalating but for the time being it was all very safe around the the resort area and a lovely place to go.
