“Lovely experience”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The hotel is perfect for people looking for some relaxation. Well, the building itself and the equipment of rooms is a bit worn out, but it's Egypt, you can't really expect hotels to be the same level as in Europe or North America, so if you are a positive person without ridicilously high demands, this could be just a right place for you to stay. The nature is amazing, the views to Jordan and Saudi Arabia are breathtaking in the nighttime, the sea is perfect for snorkeling and the beach is fully equiped.Just 2 meters away from the pier we saw muraena, tangs, puffer, lionfish, parrotfish, butterfly fish, angelfish etc. Pools are great too, especially the one with sea water. And my special thanks are to the hotel staff: they were really helpful and friendly. Hopefully, very soon the whole area of Taba will be restored from the May floods, during our stay there were almost no people , very quiet and tranquil. Nevertheless, it was a lovely experience. Undoubtedly, in comparison with Hurghada Taba is smaller, no nightlife or shopping, but somehow I liked it more for the amazing Sinai mountains right behind the hotel, clear and rich in marine life sea, posssibility of going to Israel and Jordan and that unique kind of feeling when you realise there are still places in the world where the time doesn't matter.

Great place to stay, ideal place if you just want to relax in the sunshine and the beautiful sea. The relaxing element of it was important as I proposed to my girlfriend (now wife) while we were staying there. The views across the Red Sea to Jordan and Saudi Arabia certainly helped!

Was expecting more from Sofitel only had 1 Japanese restaurant, and 1 buffet to eat at, drinks had to be paid for after 11 pm that's a joke, I warned the hotel bar manager that First choice was pulling out, but he thought he new better, lol, I heard bombs going off when we were there 2 years ago along with other guests early in the morning, pool was nice rooms were nice, snorkelling was good not spectacular, but the whole place around the other hotels were like a ghost town, nobody there.

Go to Sharm el sheikh instead much better for a good holiday

My husband and I stayed here in October 2013 as we just needed to chill out for a week. The Sofitel was absolutely perfect for this. Our room was big and clean and had a great view, we spent many an evening sitting on our balcony drinking cocktails before we headed down to dinner. We enjoyed the food and we can be quite fussy but we always found something to eat, not sure why some people are so negative about it, there's a lot of variety. Snorkelling was great in front of the hotel and you didn't even have to jump off the jetty, you could just walk out into the water and see lots of different fish. We also went on a snorkelling day out which was organised by the hotel, this was worth doing and was nice to have a change of scene. We also did the day trip to Jordan which was a very long day but worth it to see Petra. The only downside we had was our week clashed with Eid so a lot of guests came over from Jordan and Saudi and had no idea how to behave around food, by the pool or in the toilets but this wasn't the hotel's fault, in fact several of the hotel staff told us they found it tough too! This slightly took the edge off the holiday but I'd definitely go back if I needed to have a bit of R&R.

I have just returned from Sofitel Taba Heights, a hotel I have stayed in many many times. This was the first time though that I had visited on my own and I need not have had any worries.

As usual the staff were so friendly, welcoming and helpful and I immediately felt at home and safe and secure in this peaceful haven. Even though there had been a flash flood a few weeks previous, Sofitel is unaffected and it was business as usual. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

I spent two idyllic weeks here and was very reluctant to leave. There are plenty of facilities if you wish to expend some energy as well as spa and salon treatments for relaxation.

Snorkelling from the jetty is a very tempting activity but there are lots of beautiful fish view without even entering the water.

Rather than gazing out over endless miles of sea, the view over a short stretch of water is of Jordan and Saudi Arabia which at night comes alive with many lights and is an amazing sight.

Though there are now no flights from the UK to Taba Airport it is very easy to fly into Sharm el Sheikh and do the road transfer to Taba Heights. Although the transfer time is longer than from Taba Airport this slight disadvantage is far outweighed by the fact that one is not tied to travelling on a certain day with a Travel Agent. There is the choice of several airlines, the chance to travel on any day of the week and the opportunity to stay for any duration.

I cannot wait to go back to this unique, peaceful haven in a beautiful hotel.

Room Tip: The Plaza sea view rooms have a very large balcony with sun loungers, chairs and a table.

Would recommend to someone looking for a great location to the diving. We went in a big group primarily to dive in the Red Sea and it was fantastic.
Food is fairly good for an inclusive hotel, and the breakfast omlettes were especially good.
