well here i am again, after visiting my favorite hotel in taba.sonesta beach, having visited this hotel many times, my family decided to see why i rave about this place so much and decided to come with me. i e.mailed the hotel to let them know i was coming with them and they went out of their way to make sure that we all had a brilliant time.
from the greeting to saying goodbye, we all were incredibly impressed by the level of service we received. Daif, John and Sherif on reception made sure everyday that everything was ok with rooms, and if we needed anything we just had to ask, we needed extra pillows and it took minutes to get them, brilliant service, breakfast and dinner were wonderful every night, we all ate far too much, but all the dinning room staff were fantastic especially garrah and tamer. the food in the bluefish is excellent quality all cooked fresh as you want it, although the jelly is smelly (garrah knows what i mean)
This time as i went with my family we deciced to take advantage of the amenities and excursions on offer, we did the submarine, great for all the family, i cant swim so for me it was great to see what my family was seeing everyday when they went snorkelling. we were really lucky to see turtles this time, amazing.
we also had a great day on the quad bikes, very dusty, so wear old clothes, but great to see the rugged mountains up close. Some of us went scuba diving, my husband was really nervous, but he need,nt have worried as it was one to one and had someone with him the whole time. he cant wait to do it again.
most of our evenings were very quiet, drinking in the bars, smoking shisha, and looking at the stars which are amazing, we visited the bedouin camp a few times as the stars here are even better due to the darkness.
My suite that i was given was incredible, fantastic veiws over the red sea, fresh linen each day with the most fantastic towel sculptures, my housekeeper knocked on my door a few times with fresh vases of flowers for our room, nice little touches that make you feel really special, even adel the pool guy put flowers by the loungers for us too.
the annimation team kept our teenagers occupied everyday with allsorts of activities going on, and they havn,t stopped going on about how much of a brilliant time they had whilst they were there and cant wait to go back.
Overall the holiday was restful but fun with the most fantastic service and freindly staff, my family were amazed at the level of standards there, with the whole holiday and cant wait to go back.
It realy is a great retreat if you truly want to relax, i cant beleive that this hotel is not in the brochures, but that is not a problem, you can e.mail them on [--], and they will even arrange for you to be collected at the airport, my advice is if you realy want to relax and unwind, go there, dont think, just do it.
