Have just returned from a 1 week stay with my husband. Hotel is fantastic in a wonderful setting, very clean and with friendly staff who look after you well. Our room was large and airy with great views over the pools, gulf of Aqabar and Jordan . The grounds are large and very well maintained with plenty of sunbeds both around the pools and on the beach. Food is plentiful and varied, although not haute cuisine there should be something for everyone .We also ordered room service during our stay and it was excellent value for money. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and am looking forward to returning .

We had a really relaxing holiday. The food was delicious and very varied.
Everywhere was clean and tidy, the staff were very pleasent and helpful.
Our room was the best ever we even had with sun loungers on the balcony.

just returned from Sofitel hotel the staff are really friendly and work really hard, the beach is lovely and the snorkling fantastic, best to go out later in the afternoon when the sea goes really calm. the food is really nice, the room we had was nice and clean and the view great, we could see Israel, Jordan and Saudi.
one problem we all had a tummy upset, my sister had to have the doctor out which cost £60 for an injection and pills. don't bother with diarrhoea pills from your own country they don't work my advice is go to the pharmacy when you get there and get their tablets they do work very quickly.
would go back again did enjoy Egypt, maybe not all inclusive next time.

We have just returned from a week in Sofitel, this was our first holiday abroad together as a couple and also our first time to Egypt after being recommended by a friend.

The service provided by all staff was excellent, they will do as much for you as possible without invading your holiday, the bar staff were attentive even when the bar was busy and by the end of the week some of them knew what we were drinking.

We had a room in block 3 which was a garden view room, it also overlooked the sea which was an added bonus for us, our block was quiet with no disturbance once you are in your room and within a short walk of the main bars and pools. The room was spacious and cleaned every day with new towels, halfway through the week we received a huge fruit bowl and some chocolates, water was put in the room every day and available throughout the hotel also.

For us the location of Sofitel was perfect, right by the beach and all other hotels within 5-10 minutes walk, the shuttle bus service running around taba heights is frequent and easy to use and is provided for free. 'Uptown' is basic but has all the souvenir shops, pharmacy and a few nice restaurants which are worth a look at, our Longwood rep recommended the 'festival' which is held on a Friday night in the town, this is not a typical egyptian festival if that is what you may expect, it is very british but enjoyable nonetheless.

We are not particularly fussy eaters but we were both very impressed with the selection of food available at the hotel every day. The choice was vast and the cooking stations provide fun fresh meals too. Overall food is available as part of the all inclusive package from about 5.30am to 12.30am. The Lotus pool bar on 2 occasions produced an 8 foot sandwich for all the guests, in addition to their daily fresh made pizzas and other hot snacks such as fries and some local foods. The Aladdin always kept their foods topped up and would serve you water and drinks to your table.

Unfortunately we did suffer slightly with stomach problems however this did not stop us doing anything we wanted to but had to be fairly close to the toilet, this was only for the last part of our holiday, having returned I have researched and discovered 'travellers diarrhoea' on the NHS direct site, it's worth a look. It would not put us off travelling to this hotel or area again.

We booked 2 excursions through Longwood holidays, they were the camel trek with bedouin dinner and also 2hr quad biking through the mountains. Both trips were amazing, the guides were excellent and fantastic value for money. There are occasions where you do need to tip the locals however on nearly all of these occasions we felt it was worth it.

The only thing we could say we didn't like (and we are clutching at straws) is that the 'warm' pool isn't very warm, the sea is quite warm though and very shallow for quite a way out.

The weather was fantastic for late November with average of about 25-30 degrees.

Nice hotel,and very friendly staff,but will not be back!!! food was not good ,my husband and I are not fussy ,but could not find anything we fancied some evenings!!
We both had stomache problems twice in the 2 weeks !!The local pharmacy sorted it for £5 each (doctor at hotel was £50 for same pills) we are quite well travelled and not had this before!!!Nearly everyone we met on the first week had the same problems.Don't think dining room door helps as everyone has to touch the handle on the way in!!!
The hotel shower room could have done with a scrub,mould on tiles,not what you expect for 5+.
The wine was good in restaurant but could not get at the bars,which was a shame as the gin was not good!!!
The best bit was the snorkelling at the very last short jetty,not many people and amazing fish!!!and shallow water for people like us who are not great swimmers.
