“Another wonderful holiday in this fabulous 5* hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2011

Just returned from another great stay in the Sofitel in the middle 2 weeks of February…we were there for 2 weeks in November/December and couldn’t wait to go back. The standards were just as high as during our last visit. As returners we were given a premium beachfront room and many staff instantly recognised us and made us feel particularly welcome. The hotel was quiet as there were only British guests, other nationalities being absent due to the unrest. The fact that British guests were still prepared to be there despite the political situation that existed at the start of our stay was clearly appreciated by the staff. They clearly do have a real affinity with British people.
The location is beautiful. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the standard of rooms high, the food varied and of good quality. The pools are excellent and the beach spacious with plenty of loungers and windbreaks. The weather was good overall, but better in the second week than the first. All staff are delightful and genuine in their desire to ensure that you have a good time.
A visit to St Catherine’s Monastery is a good way of seeing some of the Sinai desert scenery on your way there and back. The visit is excellent value for money at £39 with Thomson. If you pre-book be sure to remember to take your eticket .
It’s possible to eat in one of the other 3 hotels through the ‘dine around’ scheme, be aware that this does not include drinks which you have to pay for. We ate at the Hyatt Regency which reputedly has very good food but we found it no better that the Soifitel. Drinks were expensive - £E55 for a small glass of red wine, £E40 for a beer. Some guests from the Hyatt eating at the Sofitel commented that the Sofitel food was both more varied and generally better.
This was a difficult time for the hotel staff, many of whom live in Cairo and Alexandra and have family there. It was good to see and hear their positive reactions as the situation was resolved and it is to be hoped that they are able to gain the personal freedom they strongly desire and are also able to progress towards achieving their own personal aspirations and ambitions.
If you want to relax in the sun in a beautiful location, being looked after by friendly and attentive staff, at the same time getting very good value for money, then this is the place for you.

All Brit. guests due to Revolution all other nations cancelled.
Lovely quiet , stress free stay.
Hotel & facilities good, food very good, and plenty of choice.Lovely beach and snorkeling on reef.
Room good size & controllable a.c. Staff v.friendly and efficient. Security at Taba Heights very good. Golf course next door.
Only hangup not a lot to do close to resort outside hotel grounds.No problem if sun & sea is what you want.

We cannot find fault with this hotel, despite having read some 'poor' reviews prior to our holiday. It has exceeded our expectations on every score. Excellent location; lovely swimming pools, lovely beach - loads of sunbeds available. Rooms superb, food plentiful and delicious - as were the drinks. Staff amazingly friendly, helpful and delighted that we made the effort to visit their lovely, but previously troubled, country. The resort was fairly quiet (only Brits there) which made it even better! We'll definately be returning. Oh, and excellent Thomson rep, thanks Steve x.

Just came back from TABA 22nd Feb (14 days), SOFITEL is the best hotel in TABA HEIGHTS, safe, good food,, good decor, clean, polite stall, very well run hotel, be prepared for a quiet relaxing holiday because there is nothing to do outside the hotel,unless you want to pay for very expensive day out trips, if you are looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun and on the beach this is the one.

Travelled to the Sofitel with a friend back in 2007 and had such a great time I decided to return with my partner, 2 children and my 75 year old father. Was concerned that my kids may get bored as it is a quiet place but couldnt have been more wrong.
It is not a place to go if you want nightlife or shopping but the staff are fantastic and really looked after us, the location is amazing and for a relaxing holiday it is perfect and you feel so at home very quickly as nothing is too much trouble.
To find somewhere that at the end of the holiday every one of us, including a 12 year old (who was treated like a princess!!) and 15 year old and a pensioner all can't wait to return was wonderful and a big thankyou to all the staff particularly Luca who got the kids having so much fun playing volleyball, Mohammed and Houssana who looked after us at dinner and Assad and Reda......there were so many that were brilliant so a huge thankyou to everyone that made our holiday so special

Just spent one week all inclusive in this beautiful hotel, top marks for one of our best holidays, booked with Thomson. The staff are always professional, friendly and helpful. The Hotel is on a beautiful stretch of sandy beach complete with sun beds and windbreaks and free daily beach towels. The Pools are lovely surrounded by beautiful gardens and walkways . The rooms are big and clean our room had two full size beds looking out to sea with a spectacular view of Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel. The restaurant had good food there were plenty of options to please most people. The drinks were of a good quality too. All in all nothing to complain about. We went to arrival meeting to be introduced by the Rep Steve, to the General Manager and the head of departments which was a first for us. Also a good bye meeting too, where The General Manager thanked us for our stay followed by cocktails in the courtyard. We met lots of English people who had been visiting this hotel many times and planing to revisit again. I would recommend this hotel without a doubt. Nothing much to do in the immediate area but good for relaxing and re charging you batteries.

We have just returned from a week at the sofitel in taba heights. This was our 2nd trip to taba heights- last time we stayed in the intercontinental . The sofitel was very nice, clean, and staff are very friendly and attentive. The hotel was rather quite with just british tourists, due to the cancellations of other countries due to the problems in cairo, but this made our holiday even better. Their were lots of sun beds available, the weather was very nice and warm, but got a bit cooler in the evenings.
the food was ok, had a variety, but is sometimes repetative, as is most A/I. But very nice otherwise and the snacks at the pool were a nice change and you could have burger, chips, pizza,salad, ice cream, popcorn when you wanted from 12-5.
Our room was very nice and spacy and clean, with a double bed and we even got a big cake waiting in our room for our anniversary- so that was very nice.
The evening entertainment is low key but they had something on each night in the main bar.
The hotel is in a great spot, if you like to snorkel as the 3 piers are all just a short walk away and we found the 2nd pier to be the best to see lots of different fish. but the sea was cold!!. but that didnt stop us getting in and enjoying the sea life.
we couldn't fault this hotel, as we had a really lovely time. if you want to just chill out and relax this is the perfect place. it is very safe and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. we would certainly go back again as is really good value for money.
