Great hotel, very nice beach, helpful staff, good food (nice variety though I did not like oriental night much). Good for families and couples. One problem is the lack of a water fountain in the bathroom.

I had read recent reviews of this hotel since our visit last year and was a little concerned for our visit this year. I need not have worried at all! 3rd visit in 3 years and I thought that the hotel was doing very well. The hotel has an old style feel about it - some may say tired -... More

We stayed for a week as a family with two children. (7 and 10 years). I can highly recomment this hotel as it has the best beach in Makadi bay. Even from neighbouring hotels guests came to snorkel here. Fort Arabesque has a sandy beach with ample space between the parasols and a fantastic marine life just in about 10-20... More

Together with our family and friends, we have visited this resort in the beginning of July. (4-11.) The first impression of the hotel and staff was amazing. As I previously worked for Accor Hotels, I know what is good customer service about. Thanks to Mr. Sameh Ahmed, (Front Desk Staff) we experienced a very warm welcome, during our stay we... More

We arrived late at the hotel and found food and drink in our room. The check in was very quick, we were in the east wing with a side view of the sea very spacious and very clean. The towels are lovely and fluffy and ample toiletries left in the bathroom everyday. The beach towel service is very good and... More

Despite not so good flight times (we arrived around 9.30pm) the service & reception we received was great. Smooth check in, plenty of information, a cool drink while we filled in the necessary paperwork & because we'd missed dinner room service of bread, meats, cheese & fruit was delivered (nice touch) We had upgraded to a 2 bedroom villa, complete...

Can't complain really as the cost of the holiday was low. Went with my wife for a week to relax and chill out. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Our room was clean and fairly modern, there was a mini bar that was restocked daily with 3 cans of coke, sprite etc, 2 cartons of... More

What can I say about Fort Arabesque? I think my title says it all "well worth a visit". A very clean, friendly environment. Every member of staff we met was polite and always friendly. The rooms are perfect, pools wonderful, the restaurant can get a little busy, but, the food is of an acceptable standard when I compare to other... More
