Staff all brilliant - from the domestics - through to the reception - a credit to the hotel. The multinational activities team are livewires and... More

We stayed for a week during November. I must say we were the youngest SAGA people but we were really looked after by all of the SAGA regulars (and there are many). Sameh really took time to ensure everything was fine with us and the quiz night in the SAGA lounge did get very competitive! I cannot comment on the... More

We stayed the first 2 weeks in December and came for the sunshine and a rest. We were not disappointed and had hot weather around 30degees every day. Our room was in the east wing and it overlooked the gardens which were kept beautifully. We could also see the sea and the desert in the distance which was a fabulous... More

Lovely hotel, great location, excellent snorkelling, good service and friendly staff, the only bad point was the food, it was tasteless, cold, the salad tastes like it had been frozen a few years before, the food was fit for the pigs! The entertainment was anything but entertaining, it was homophobic, racist, offensive to women and disabled people, the beach was... More

Agree with all the positives on here, excellent staff, excellent beach, excellent snorkelling and diving, thanks for looking after us Mamud, excellent gym, excellent weather and for me excellent meals, granted they aren't going to win any michelin...

Visited Fort Arabesque for 10 days early on November. Stayed in the West Wing which during the day is quieter than the East wing. The rooms are large and well looked after. The food is OK, not wonderful, but definitely a btter atmosphere in the West wing. The best bit of the stay however is the beach. Lots of room... More
