My wife and I stayed for one week - just after Christmas 2008 and over New Year 2009.
The hotel is in a superb location on the Red Sea and the large grounds are so impressive and well maintained. They run down to quite a long sand beach. We had a spacious and excellent bedroom. Weather overall was good, able to enjoy good spells of sunshine, eating outside etc, but being January it was dark by late afternoon. My wife suffered with mosquito bites during the stay and this was quite a problem.
The New Year party was outstanding and a credit to Movenpick in every respect.
Food was disappointing overall and seemed to fall short of high ratings given by other Tripadvisor visitors. Not sure why. We ate mostly in the small Sea Shells restaurant, which appears to have been a fish restaurant, but during our stay seemed to be offering the substantially the same food as the main restaurant.
Not a huge amount to do - glass bottomed boat from the beach a must - to see the amazing fish and coral. Scuba diving etc. Some trips like the Petra. Evening entertainment was poor. Good holiday for relaxing and sitting by the pool or on the beach.
Hotel staff really friendly and helpful - in many instances exceptionally so.
Left with a sense of an amazing and memorable location - the grounds, the Red Sea, the mountains. Movenpick need to review the food arrangements, which were some way below what you expect in a high rated hotel. Taba Airport on the way home is dire, e.g. no toilet tissues.
So mixed thoughts about the experience; glad we went - a good break in a world class location, but not all aspects up the standards of other similarly rated hotels.
