Our second visit did not disappoint, we are given rom 471 in the west wing, great views over the gardens and bay. Room was ok, it is a typical Egyptian hotel room, bed ok, bathroom good with posts oh hot water. Small balcony, we might go gpfor a twin room next time as they seem to have bigger balconys.

Sadly just returned yesterday from a great stay at fort arabesque. The hotel is lovely and cleans, rooms are big and spacious, good choice of food and all inclusive drinks. I think when people are moaning about the variety of food etc they forget how much they have paid for their holiday. Such a cheap price and mostly the tour... More

During my previous visit I stayed in a villa which was excellent and the breakfast was of a high quality, this visit all our food was in the main restaurant which was not so good. The... More

Nice big room in the East wing. The room was clean and the house keeper looked after us well. However, he was very pushy when he told... More

Not sure what the below review is all about. This was our first trip to the Fort. We are a couple with one child. We had prebooked the quieter West Wing but when we arrived around 8pm my wife thought it was too quiet. The staff moved us and our stuff to a big and nice East Wing room quickly,... More

Stayed there for 9 nights. As we have a baby, we have got a family room, which was couple of steps away from the diner and 2 minutes of walk from the beach. The staff is very helpful and nice. The cleaning staff made amazing job every day, our room was always clean and tidy. The food was alright, the... More
