Before going on this holiday, I had always said I'd never go back anywhere twice... Just don't really get it when there is so much to see and so many places still on the list. However, after spending a week in Taba Heights, I can understand why people seem to go back there time and time again. I spoke to a few fellow guests who had had a number of visits, and the reason they return is really simple... Guaranteed sun, fantastic accommodation and really good food!
I had never been to an all-inclusive resort before and had some reservations beforehand. However I was very pleasantly surprised! The buffet meals were genuinely great and very varied. Even the Egyptian beer was very impressive. Also, the service at evening meals was superb and the guys serving us were fantastic and truly friendly!
I do have one gripe.. Minor though it is, but the service at two of the bars was not the best. The swim up bar may as well not have been there, because on more than one occasion I had to get out of the pool to get served despite an empty bar and several looks from the bar staff.. It was annoying, as I was really looking forward to the swim up bar! The other bar with a few examples of "attitude" was the main bar near reception, where it did sometimes feel like it was a bit of a chore to get us a drink!
The one gripe aside however n the hotel was fantastic! Whilst I still don't think I'd plan to go back (purely because of my rule), if I saw a deal to the same place and fancied a week in the sun I would have no hesitations! Quite simply a perfect getaway in gorgeous sunshine
