Such a relaxing place and beautiful beach. Staff were generally attentive, professional and friendly (except the East Wing buffet where staff are unsmiling and seem disinterested). That's the good bits. However, the hotel is now starting to need a serious refurbishment. Particularly the outside seating at both the main Lobby and West Wing bars and please, it really is time...

Me and my partner stayed here for a week. The hotel its self was was clean and tidy. My hotel room was was a ground floor terrace. The room was OK. No coffee/tea making facilities. The room was cleaned daily but the outdoor terrace was quite dirty and not very private. I found the hotel staff rude and ignorant and... More

This is our 5th stay at the Arabesque and although we thoroughly enjoyed our stay some things are starting to deteriorate. Readers will note that I gave this hotel a rave review previously. The jewel in their crown is the wonderful beach and house reef and the large parasols and spacious layout of sunbeds. The guy patrolling the beach and... More

Been to Fort Arabesque a few times at different times of year..with small children ...and have always had a brilliant time and good service. The hotel is beautiful and compares very highly to what you would get in Europe. Food is great and rooms tastefully done. Beach and little park heaven for children!..and the icecreams from freezers! Only 'down side'... More

I arrived home from the resort early this morning after spending a week with my family and partner to celebrate my parents' 40th wedding anniversary. The resort, staff and amenities are all very good, however there are a few points that would be worth new guests noting... 1. Eat in the West Wing restaurant... for all meals. This is far... More

This place has stolen our hearts. Surrounded by beautiful nature, the resort is ideal for a relaxing holiday with or without kids/teenagers. Although there is as much to do as you like, you also have the option to do absolutely nothing in a beautiful setting. The sea is amazing, the food is great and the staff actually really looks after... More
