The hotel is great nested in a great position between mountains giving a wonderful view . Pools are clean and wide enough to feel privacy . Restaurant is good with an acceptable variety of high quality food on dinner but breakfast is a copy and paste everyday menu I although wanted to thank the animation team "La Vaca" who made our vacation great ... read hotel review

    The room was a good size and had a nice balcony. We had kind of hped to be upgraded as it was our honeymoon and then also with the problems we had checking in but no such luck. Shower was a bit poor.

  • Gastronomy
    2.0

    It is an all incusive resort with buffets for breakfst, lunch and dinner. There were some nice options but generally it was a bit lacklustre and it was blatantly evident that getting fresh fruit and veg supplies was a problem. Lots of powdered deserts, no fresh juices, and if you're veggie then youre going to be living on pasta and tomato sauce.

  • Service
    1.0

    Staff are generally friendly unless you're Egyptian (like my husband) in which case you won't get any service and they are likely to be rude and dismissive. This was very noticeable throughout our 4 day stay. We had a major complaint upon arrival when our hired tourist car was not allowd to enter the hotel. The security guards did not explain why, just told us we'd need to get out and walk the remaining 50m in the blazing heat with all our luggage. Seeing a tour bus parked at the entrance we were understandably confused and angry after our 8 hour journey to get there....Some 5 star service! The reception desk staff continued to be unhelpful so we asked for the duty manager. He took a good 15 minutes to come to reception. On hearing my husbands complaint in Arabic he started shouting and pointing in his face for a good 10 minutes, I've never seen anything like it. When I spoke to him to ask him why he was shouting at my husband and did he have any understanding of customer service he smiled sweetly and then dismissed me completely. So of course I then got angry and asked to be shown some respect. I gave him 3 easy solutions to stop the problem that we had experienced but he was clearly uninterested in listening. Absolutely terrible. Those 5 stars are a big joke.

    The pool was great. Seemed clean and lots of sunbeds with umbrellas. We didn't come across any entertainment. There is a shop but there's not really anything much of interest in it. There isn't any wifi, apart from in the lobby.

    Its a beautiful setting, but security is still very high with terrorist activities in the region. You go through a lot of check points with tanks and armed police to get there. If you have a private car you cannot drive up to the hotel door. You have to be dropped off and walk the last 50 or so metres to the entrance. If youre lucky someone will help you with your luggage. There used to be another resort nearby with restaurants and shops that you could visit, but its been washed out since a flood last year. So there's nowhere to go to outside the resort. We couldn;t find any options for excursions and there were no details around in the hotel

I spent in Sofitel one fantastic week with my family and i recommend this hotel for everyone. A big advantage was an overall cleanness and very good quality of food, soft and alcoholic drinks. In this hotel you don't have to worry about tummy bug. Mineral water in plentiful supply. Even in February we had a fantastic weather and a heated pool. The hotel staff and animation team - veeeery friendly. I would visit this hotel again. read hotel review

Were first on the Nile, it was so great, then to the hotel well not so good anymore, stink boring, everything very much made too expensive for example a bottle of Cola 10 Dollar, excursions or quad biking too expensive. At the airport the largest insolence, even the lighters decreased. Were to 16. to Egypt but we will never again after taba go. At the pool is missing the cleanliness, the rabbenvögel cover with shit all the beach chairs. But Egypt we are coming again. The hotel we will recommend, maybe we'll come again, if we 90 years old. read hotel review

We were from 31,12-07,01. 2014 in this hotel. The hotel is about 10 years old, but it was cleaning all surfaces and in all corners, renovated and green. It is a spacious hotel in a spacious hotel area ( gesamtzimmeranzahl about 500 to 3' blocks' distributed). Framed it is from the Miramar (ex Hyatt) as well as from the marriot. The rooms (we had the room 1429) are very spacious and offer every comfort. A unique feature is the kettle, the also clean and decalcified was, this is not a matter of course. Cleanliness in the whole hotel. ... The check-in was fast and easy. You immediately got the 'small band' and after about 2-3 minutes the room card. The suitcases were immediately brought to the room. You can argue over, whether an open lobby is good or bad, we found it so great. Wi-fi was available in the lobby free of charge. There were all nationalities in the hotel, but no unpleasant. read hotel review

    Our room was large, with a very nice bathroom (walk-in shower), separate toilet. Two larger closets (for long clothes suitable) and a free safe were available. A flat screen tv was a large chest of drawers. Reservoir gave it here in abundance. The balcony furniture was high-quality and m. e. Relatively neunseres erachtenss was cleaned every day the minibar with water (for coffee/tea) refilled. The view saudi arabia /Jordan and sunrise is gorgeous. The decoration of the room leaves nothing to be desired.

  • Gastronomy

    There is a main restaurant, aladin, where the choice of the food for breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet were plentiful and in good quality available. A poolreataurant was also available, with small different snacks and a selection of drinks. A japanese tandoori restaurant is also available, but not all-inclusive, but reasonably priced. The food is very fresh and there is' large cinema ' the chef in the food preparation to watch. The guests, which is on the taste and the versatility of the meals to complain about, should the restaurants of the other hotels compared to raise. There are surely some rezzesionen look different.

  • Service

    The friendliness and helpfulness is here especially to be highlighted. There is no staff which you explixit to emphasize can all tried hard to fulfill the guests wishes. Foreign language skills were available (if overlooked, that it has taken since the november 2013 on the german market is postable). It is hard and you can tell that all german to learn to want. The room cleaning was very good. I personally missing the 'towel animals'. One notices here, that a exclusiveres resort is. We had no complaints, requests were immediately fulfilled (pushing the beds together), additional services we didn't use.

    We only used the beach. It was very clean, every evening there was this platiert, the cushions and tables wiped and the chairs oriented. These you could also at the pool couches watching. The beach chairs at the pool and on the beach were very inviting and comfortable. The obligatory beach vendors (massage/beauty and waterwold ) were available, but not intrusive.

    The beach lies directly before the door, the airport about 30 kilometer away. It was (when we arrived) in the convoy drove, so about 2 hrs. The shopping experience is not good, as the prices the german level (cigarettes about 4 Euro) and it 'in the middle of nowhere'.. It is worth a trip to dahab (25 Euro offered by the hotel). The Dine around is great implemented, there were enough possibilities here auswertig to eat.

The hotel was super nice, the best we have ever had. We have ourselves however animal on security and beachaufsicht annoyed. We had on the Nile-cruise friendship closed, the another hotel in taba had booked. They were allowed not to our beach, the staff was actually quite aggressive. Although the beach was next to each other was we could not even on the neutral beach in between. The boss of the reception was a little helpful. Our friends should 20 Euro per person and day, although they want to eat and drink at their own pool bar orderten. The snacks ... at the pool bar were very poor. There were fries, pizza and alternately either hot dogs, hamburgers or type Doner. There was only half a sausage per Hot Dog and the meat on the Doner one had to search for. Moreover, there was no service at the pool and beach! You have to praise room service, the bar, the cook at the pool bar and the man at the front desk very competent the reservations for the dinner-a-round staged, german was very good! Very positive i found, the nowhere to tip begged was. read hotel review

We ( reiseerfahren and demanding) were in january and pleasantly surprised. The hotel is an architectual success, the pool fantastic and the evening view of the opposite coast of saudi - arabia spectacular. The hotel is located in a secure Areal of approximately 10 square kilometer (s. map). Of the 4 big hotels on the beach is one of the Sofitel surely the most charming. About 2 kilometer above is the retort place 'uptown' with 2 further (modest) hotels, about 20 tourist shops and some ( dinearaund -) restaurants. Everything very nicely designed, but a bit. One shouldn't miss an ... evening (panorama -) walk back to the hotel. On the ocean combines a beautiful, 3 kilometer long promenade/jogging track the hotels. The hotel has 442 rooms. The utilization of the hotel was about 20% - because a very calm atmosphere, rather for those seeking relaxation as for experience-hungry. Mostly germans and russians - but no problem. The cleanliness was good. read hotel review

    German electrical plugs fit. Available are: safety deposit box, hair dryer, wasserzubereiter. Good: very large shower, good mattresses, right comforters instead of the usual sheets- deckengewurschtel. Channels: except some exotic south german regionalsendern only ZDF. Quite uncomfortable, easily initiated rattan chairs. Overall about 3.5 stars. The superior rooms are all in the vivahotel laurus and differ (only) by the large balcony (about 18 square meter) with 2 beach chairs.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    The food was, as in such houses usual rather kantinenqalität. At least: the selection was neat and varied. Anything edible was always find. Well the breakfast: eggs in all varationen of a master prepared individually. Fresh slice of pineaple were top. The dessert buffet was good, very delicious in many variants offered apple pie! Wine and beer were moderate and were not matching glasses poured out. The coffee was bad - on request it was the lunch/dinner from the coffee machine the bar concerned, was a bit better. For dinearaund - concept: the visit in the main restaurant the other hotels is worth it for Sofitel-guests not (vice versa already). The 'birds nest' (uptown, thai) we found moderate. An absolute recommendation: the open-air restaurant 'lagoon' at the intercontinental. Great atmosphere, the grilled chicken and garnelenspieße top! The wines and the coffee was very tasty!

    Transfer time 45 minutes. The Areal is completely isolated - any activities outside are individually hardly possible. Organised trips are expensive. For a week on the premises but enough plug. For the lazy ones there was 4 times per hour a shuttle bus, the in a circuit the hotel. North end of the promenade in front of the 'club med' - there is denied access. But you can on a path above further - we have the hike because of a small thunderstorm canceled. We had about 5 hours sun per day. Evening you could with a light jacket sit outside. Sea: about 21°. Wi-fi in the lobby free of charge, in the room about €6.5/hour

About the hotel there is nothing negative zuberichten. Right on the beach was clean, all very friendly. Only our tour operator jumped compared to the tour guide on the Nile-schiff negative from the series. It was a travel agent. Questions about the area or Israel and Jordan wanted or he couldn't answer, although these in the brochure from FTI advertised was. Only after long exchanges regarding ferry to aqaba and castle zaman, he pointed us to the hotel. He felt only for FTI desk undelegated. Unfortunately. We had all-inclusive deluxe at sonnenklar. read hotel review

A great holiday, you can only recommend the hotel. Especially is the Ali at the reception, just great. Wi-fi is also available, free of charge for a week. I had increased, the really tried very hard. We will definitely come again. The golf course is highly recommended, not easy but fair. read hotel review
