Spent two weeks in February at the Fort – this is the first time we have been at this time of year as we normally travel in Nov/Dec. We found the temperature similar to December but getting hotter as the stay progressed. The sea was colder. I wasn’t able to put my review on straight away as I had already...

Just returned from the fort arabesque - 21/02/17 - 07/03/17. We booked a package with sunshine travel, but did not receive any transfers during our stay from Resort Hoppa - this is one company to avoid. It's not the first time at this hotel (it's our friends choice who we meet annually). We have seen many changes during the years...

Our room was in the West Wing on the 3rd Floor with sea view and balcony. Lovely room, comfortable bed with a mini bar stocked daily free of charge with beer, bottled water, pepsi, juice and milk. Tea and coffee making facilities and a safe. Shower gel and shampoo supplied but need to take hair conditioner if you use it....

We have just returned from 3 weeks at Fort Arabesque . We had a great time. The beach & coral & fish are fabulous. The food had improved a lot since last year. We were less impressed with the a la carte meals. The rooms are nice & big but need updating. The main criticism we have is the lack...

This hotel seemed to only cater for tour groups, and one entire wing seemed to be given over to Saga! There didn't seem to be any Egyptian guests, which was a shame, especially as there was no Egyptian food that I could find. The buffets were bland, boring, meat over-cooked and often cold. The staff were very off-hand, and only...
