my brother and i went to the Marriot on the 16th of september. the hotel is brilliant!! it is situated right on the beach and the views of Saudi Arabia and Jordan are amazing.
the pool is really fantastic and because there were so few people there we had it almost to ourselves but to be fair I think there would be plenty of room if the hotel was busy.
Thanks to Tamer in the Grotto bar for keeping us going with the ice cold beers.
As there were so few people we had to use the tuscanny restaurant for our meals but that was no problem. As we normally do we only ate Breakfast in the hotel as we foung the sea club at waterworld had some fantastic things on the menu for lunch and we always eat at the mexican or the flying carpet in the evenings anyway. yes I know we were all inclusive but to be honest we didnt feel the food in the hotel was up to 5 star standard, perhaps it was because there were not many people staying.
Our room was very good and we were pleased with it. the cleanliness in the hotel was brilliant and the staff were great and very helpful.
we met a mother and daughter by the pool and they were a good laugh so thank you to you.
All in all we were very pleased with the Marriot and we would go back again..

Dear Stants1,

Many thanks for your review. We are very pleased to hear that you and your brother found our resort brilliant and had a good holiday here.

Thanks for mentioning our swimming pool, we do think that with its waterfalls, caves, bridges, the slide, the swim-up bar and the artificial beach it is one of the highlights of our resort.
Our kitchen team is working hard on improvements to our buffet, and lately.
we have been receiving positive feedback from our guests.

We are very happy with your plans to come back, rest assured there will be plenty of ice-cold beer, sunshine and sunbeds for another brilliant holiday.

All the best,

What a wonderful week my friend an i had, the staff where very helpful an friendly, they could not have been more helpful Our room was perfect. A perfect nights sleep in our wonderful beds.The food was good, perhaps a bit more choice would have been good, that maybe because it was a little quiet when we where there, but overall could not complain. Thank you to everyone for making our holiday fantastic! we hope to come back again soon.

Having stayed in all bi the Hayatt in Taba Heights my honest opinion is as follows

Intercontinental=a little to big
Soffitel=a little to snobbish
El Wekalal=nice....but not on the beach,perfect for the golf course
Marriott=SPOT ON !!!

With such low numbers you may have thought standards would drop but the Marriott and its staff were having none of it.
With no more than 50 guests the hotel took on a lovely family feel with the staff always willing to help but never there to intrude.
The rooms were spotlessly cleaned on a daily basis and very comfortable
The restaurant gave a varied menu that improved as the week went on and the bar service....well......that was simply the best i have experienced in a long time.
Nothing was to much trouble which led to an almost butler type service an whilst i am sure this would not be quiet the same with a full hotel it made for a fantastic holiday.
Many thanks to Brian and your staff you are a credit to the hotel and we cant wait to get back.

I booked a package holiday with Olympic Holidays UK, flight, Marriott Hotel Taba, taxi transfers and agent representation ha! what A SICK JOKE..............No taxi waiting at Taba airport to take me to the hotel and no Rep. When I did eventually get to the Marriott via Thomsons holiday shuttle coach they had difficulty finding my booking but was eventually sorted my luck the hotel was not full. Managed to trace my Rep who was full of excuses for the failures and left his cell number but un-contactable - utterly useless. Lucky for me my taxi arrived on my return two weeks later to take me back to Taba Airport as I was wondering whether it would or not. Contacted Olympic by special delivery letter on my return to UK to express my disgust on the way I had been treated but received no reply. First and definitely last time I will use Olympic UK so heed my warning and pass them by !

The Taba area is lovely and has unspoilt beautiful beaches blue sea the perfect place for a complete chill out in the warm/hot sunshine or snorkelling if you prefer something more active plenty of fish around and one does not have to swim out very far in fact walk a few metres into the sea and there are fish in abundance.

Marriott hotel definitely not a 5 star but reasonable 4 star. Facilities in the hotel not great. Restaurant a bit hit and miss empty food trays not replaced quick enough, long waits for ordering and receiving drinks, tables not cleared quick enough or not laid with adequate clean cutlery etc reason not enough staff and the ones that were there worked jolly hard. Beach beds have seen better days and certainly need replacing. Have to compliment housekeeping as Mohammed did a superb job of cleaning my beach front room (upgrade its worth the money). Beauty and spa excellent if not a bit over priced. Remembering I was in Egypt and not in Monte Carlo then I would say that the Marriott is without a doubt good value for the money paid.

Room Tip: Upgrade and get a beach front room - its only a minimal extra

It has mostly all been said before but we can only confirm it was a 5 star holiday in all respects.
From arrival at the airport, the reception we received at the hotel, a free upgrade to a sea view room (443), which was large, well equipped, superb air-con, very clean and comfortable, the return trip home, and everything inbetween, it was perfect. Russell the Longwood Rep was there if needed, but never in your face, he's been doing this for years, and it shows, the consummate professional, and a nice Guy to boot. The security is such that there was never a chance that we would experience any of the problems associated with Cairo etc., we felt completely secure.The staff rely on tips to supplement their paltry income and with the hotel running at only 10 per cent capacity (about 100 guests, nearly all English and a spattering of Saudi's for a day or two) their take is down around 90 per cent, but we never heard one moan, they were all just so happy that we were there. The service was up to Egypt's usual high standard. Due to the shortage of guests the main restaurant was closed and we all ate in the smaller Tuscany restaurant, and although the choice was limited because of this, we never went short, there was always a choice of fish, chicken and either beef or lamb.....we certainly didn't go hungry. Good quality 4.5pc bottled or draught lager, and very gluggable red, white and rose!!! The hotel and staff gave us a holiday to remember, so much better than Sharm, and during an exremely difficult time for them. Like so many of those we met there last week, we shall return to the Marriott, as they do year after year, and let there be no doubt about it!!!! Don't miss out, we didn't.

Room Tip: Get a sea view if you can, fantastic looking out over to Saudi and Jordan at night. at the moment du...
