We have just returned from our 6th visit to Sofitel Taba Heights and am just about to book again for November. You are welcomed by the reception staff who are delightful and luggage is taken swiftly to your room which is extremely clean and spacious with all the amenities plus bottles of water in the fridge . There is plenty of hanging space and drawers and the beds are either two queen sized beds or one 7' bed.The air conditioning is very welcome as when we were there the temperatures were between 36 - 38 degrees. The staff are exceptional and having travelled the world I can honestly say that we were treated like very special people by all the staff without exception. The pools - one cold, one heated and one seawater (plus another by the new extension to the hotel) are wonderful but we spent our time on the beach. The recreation staff look after you with a smile and a willingness to please - Mohamed Badawy must get a special mention but nothing was too much trouble for any of them (Mahmoud, Yasser, Ossama, Abdulla, Alaa, Sherif, Mohammed Amin). There is a bar by the pools where you will be looked after by Nosa and Reda and at lunchtimes you can have salads, fresh pizza etc or go to the main restaurant for a wonderful meal. The food is varied and each night there is a different theme. Ibrahim, the pasta chef is worth a visit and the pasta is cooked to your liking with whatever you like added to it. Executive Chef Wahid keeps a very close eye on everything and everyone and he is a delightful man always smiling and eager to please. He is very innovative and constantly searching for ways to make the food more attractive and presentable. He made us feel very special at all times. Try a visit to the Asiatique restaurant where you can have sushi or sit round the Teppan grill whilst the chef cooks the food you have selected - well worth a visit. The gardens are very well groomed and there is constant work done on them - no weeds seen here. There is a fitness centre with a weights gym and also exercise machines and here also you can indulge yourself with a massage by either of the Thai girls. I have had many Thai massages by Orathai or Natta - lovely girls. The sauna is located here too and there is another pool here to cool yourself off in. Each night there is a show organised or involving the Animation Team ably led by Chico supported by Rico, Heba and Mido all under the overall management by Ibrahim Shawky. A regular shuttle bus is available to take you to Waterworld, the golf club and El Wekala which is know as 'uptown' and consists of a number of restaurants and a variety of shops (a pharamacy, supermarket, souvenir shop and a few others). the Flying Carpet is the only restaurant I have been to and served delicious food. If you want a holiday heavy on nightlife then this may not be the place for you, if however you want to relax and 'recharge your batteries' then Sofitel Taba Heights, under its efficient, capable and welcoming management team is definitely the place for you. As a golfer perhaps the only disappointing thing about Taba Heights is that the price for playing golf is excessive albeit that the golf course has matured to a very good level. Trips can be taken to Petra, Cairo or St Catherine's monastery (plus others) but we have not experienced any of them to date. Boats sail from Waterworld to various dive sites and snorkelling is super although not up to the standard of the Maldives!!
