This has to be one of the best hotels I have stayed in, we checked in and our luggage was brought to the room, we had booked a double bed but there were 2 singles which wasn’t must of a problem but we were re roomed after 5 minutes! The rooms were lovely and the beds were a king which was heaven!!
The service was outstanding - special mention to Akmed in the main restaurant and Bahaa the best bar man in Taba, my partner has a Manchester United tattoo on his leg which got a lot of attention from the staff and a nice Russian man who shown us the best card trick but couldn’t explain how to do it because of the language barrier!!
If you can pay Joseph a visit (he has a tent near the beech bar selling sand in a glass) he can also draw a picture of your choice – very well… He is lovely and very welcoming; he made us special Egyptian tea – we took some home as well.
We ate at the main restaurant for the first week which isn’t as bad as people make out, although we did convert to sea shells for the second week and it was smaller and more ambient. We ate at chop sticks which was lovely (the portions are huge).
On the Friday, we got up at 3.15am and went on the Cairo excursion... 1 word - amazing!! Well worth the 6 hour coach trip (21 hour round trip) - it went really fast and we visited landmarks all over the city!
The beach is lovely, it is stony but there are so much coral and different types or fish, we went snorkelling near the gate where the Hilton starts as it’s the best area. Make sure you put plenty of sun lotion on your back as the sun is hot!! Exploring the sea is like being in the little mermaid - make sure you take an underwater camera - we went on a diving trip as well (first time) and it was so good!!
There are always people from the spa coming around the pool, they want to sign you up for a treatment (which is their job - people were complaining about this) - they have time for a chat and are also rather amusing..! I booked in to the spa for a Cleopatra treatment - 2 hours of pure relaxation and pampering – ending with the best full body massage!!
I would say this hotel is not best for groups as there is no lively nightlife but couples and families - this is the perfect place.
We really enjoyed it and were very refreshed when we returned!!
