Dear Londondave,

Thank you very much for your review. We are delighted to see that you have enjoyed your stay with us. It looks like you were here quite a while ago, as we introduced free WiFi in all public areas of the resort (all restaurants, bars, lobby, around the pool, etc.) back in April 2013. There is now high speed Internets access in all rooms as well, there is an extra fee for it, but it is much smaller than what you indicated.
There are a few other improvements we implemented throughout the resort since your last visit and we hope to see you come back some time soon. This time we'll go out of our way to impress you in every detail.

Came here early summer of 2013. Hotel complex is amazing. Pool was great, though sometimes a little dirty because of the trees and bushes decorating the sides of it. Also, many tiles have broken off the pool floor which could use fixing. The beach is also great with some coral so its possible to snorkel. Cocktails were good with a selection of about 7 different all inclusive mixes to try.
Food, however, was bland. Pizza was the best part of the meals but they couldn't make it fast enough as it seemed to be what everybody wanted after trying the main parts of the meals. My girlfriend and I both got extremely sick from the food and couldn't leave our room for a full 2 days. Luckily there is pharmacy down the road that takes 5 minutes by bus. The clinic in the hotel was not open and showed no signs of opening soon. Also, we looked at the a la carte restaurant upstairs and couldn't find it open once during our stay.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend this hotel because of the possibility of getting sick: 2 days of our 7 day vacation in the beautiful hotel were lost :(

Dear Ncomo,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review even if some 6 months after your stay with us.
During the summer we did indeed receive a few comments about the food in our main restaurant, and have introduced lots of changes and improvements - hired a few specialty chefs, changed menus, and upgraded our buffet overall, and thankfully, the feedback we have been receiving from our guests is very positive.

Just a couple of notes on your other comments. The hotel clinic is open from 1pm to 3pm every single day, there is also a doctor available on call 24/7.
Tuscany, our Italian a-la-carte restaurant at the moment is open twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday due to low occupancy. Both of these questions could have been easily answered by any of our Reception desk agents or by our At-Your-Service agents with a simple call from your room.

We really appreciate your feedback here, and we can’t stress enough the importance of timely communication during your holiday in order to avoid any unnecessary inconvenience and have an enjoyable and trouble-free holiday.

We wish you a wonderful Christmas season and look forward to welcoming you back in our resort one day,

My partner and I are here for 3 months. We normally head to Florida for the Winter our two reasons for being out of the UK is better weather and the ability to play golf regularly but this year we wanted to be closer to home. In equal measures we chose Taba Heights, Egypt because of the travel time from the UK, the golf course and the look of the Marriott Hotel. So far our expectations have been exceeded. I would always try to stay at the Marriott whenever I used to travel on business and so am pleased that any concerns I may have had have been quashed. The staff, the food, the rooms are fabulous. The staff are overwhelmed by the fact that we have chosen to stay here for 3 months and cannot do enough to please us. From Mohamed who tidies our room and makes sculptures out of the towels, to Walied, Samar and Mohamed on the front desk with whom I often have chats with, to Sayed the Chef who always wants to "cook it especially for us"' to Muktar the Restaurant Manager, to Sabar who greets us at dinner...there are so many to mention..one other but I've forgotten his name he always leaves us a Cadburys chocolate eclair sweetie. If you want a relaxing place to stay with your family with sun, sea, golf and good food then this is the place. Ibiza it is not...thank God! We flew with Easyjet to Sharm el Sheik stayed one night at Sharm then travelled to Taba the next day. The transfer is over two hours but the scenery is stunning so you hardly notice the time. The fact that there are no direct flights here don't let the transfer time put you off such a stunning corner of the world. As one reviewer said you are right on the beach with views across the sea to Jordan and Saudia Arabia.

Dear Geltruda,

Thank you very much for such a lovely review. We are delighted to have you here with for such an extended period of time and we are happy to see that you are enjoying our company and services.
As you correctly noticed - our resort is all about sun, sea, golf, nature, relaxation and warm welcome by our team. It's not very much of a night-life destination and we are glad our guests value the place for exactly what it is.

We are very happy that you are staying with us for the next few weeks and very much looking forward to more chats and chocolate bars to share. Please rest assured we'll spare no effort to keep exceeding your expectations.

Have a wonderful time,

I have returned from my first trip to Egypt and Taba - not really knowing what to expect. The hotel and grounds are quite tired and could do with updating, but the staff make up for this by being very friendly, helpful and courteous. Everywhere was very clean, and the restaurants and food are good - a good variety. However, the local drink is disgusting - gin, vodka etc. I was there to play golf and the golf course is awesome - exceptionally well manicured and picturesque, and the golf staff and clubhouse are great - everyone really looked after us well. Other than that, there is not much else to do. The views across the Red Sea to Jordan are amazing - you can walk out on piers to look at the fish and coral. The weather was great too. Don't be put off by the news items relating to trouble - it is a long long way from Taba, and each hotel has it's own security measures.

Dear Loudeac99,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. We are glad to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thanks for giving credit to our team and the efforts they are making every single day to make each guest feel comfortable and welcome.

Thank you again for mentioning the golf course, it is one of the best in the region and one of the best kept secrets of Taba Heights at the moment. We really believe this magnificent work of golf landscaping deserves more players than it has at the moment.

As for the drinks, we are constantly reviewing our suppliers, but the fact is, apart from wine and beer, locally produced alcohol is not great. We always have a good selection of imported drinks, but due to very high taxes on imported alcohol in Egypt, we have to sell these drinks at an extra charge.

Wishing you all the best and looking forward to welcoming you back in our resort for some more great sea, sun and golf.

Kind regards,

We are returning guests so maybe we are a little biased, but we had 12 wonderful nights in November and cannot wait to go there again.
The hotel is very beautiful and is set right on the beach overlooking Jordan and Saudi Arabia. The rooms are light and spacious and the grounds and pool are fabulous. We chose to stay on a bed and breakfast basis so cannot comment on the other meals, but the breakfast has just about anything you could want( except bacon of course!!) The staff are fantastic and despite the situation in Egypt they really want to make your stay really special.
I know travelling to Taba Heights is now more complicated, but there are plenty of flights into Sharm el Sheik ant the transfer is only 2.5 hours and the journey is very beautiful, so please do not let that put you off. The hotel will happily arrange transfers for you if you contact them direct.
So please do not be put off by the situation in Egypt, you will not regret making the effort to go to Taba Heights

Room Tip: ask for a sea view room the vista is spectacular

Hotel was lovely. Very friendly staff.
Sadly the same cannot be said for the food, drink and entertainment.
Food was either inedible or cold and gave you the "sharm el [--]" (we did not eat the salad or have ice in our drinks despite being told we could and would be fine). All inclusive alcohol was VILE! I do not understand how you can get a white spirit so wrong!!
Entertainment consisted of a 5 minute mini disco at 7.30 then the whole hotel went dead...
They put the English in rooms as far away as they physically can! Baring in mind it gets dark at 5pm and there is an armed guard on either end of the hotel you'd think they'd want guests closer to the main building.

AVOID THE SPA AT ALL COSTS!! Con you out of your money. Offer one package and you get something worse and completely different. Staff dig nails in instead of massaging.

The main thing we heard throughout the week was the hotel begging us to put a good review on here.... Very offputting when trying to make the best of an already bad situation.....
