“Go see the castle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Good trip, submarine was actually a glass bottom boat but the views were amazing both under the sea and at the Castle - well worth a go

Dear Blueline lady,

I think you confused us with Salah El Din Castle . Castle Zaman is a slow-food restaurant with no submarine nor organized snorkeling trips.

Best regards

“A great place, but snobbish attitude is killing it!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Pros:
-The castle is nicely done
-The pool background is the beach
-Drinks are nice & fresh
-Lighting by night is cool
Cons:
-Food is over rated, its greasy & they depend on big portions to impress customers
-staff has an attitude problem, as the place is popular they don't give a damn about customer service
- The pool is small
-The staff receives u with an arrogant message of do's & don’ts rather than a welcoming smile

“Out of this world!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I visit Taba regularly and this is the first time I have visited Castle Zaman. It certainly will NOT be the last time.

This place is out of this world, unbelievably beautiful place to chill by the pool, drink and eat!

This place is not child friendly so, If you want to relax, this is the place to go!
