I have been going to the Fort Arabesque now for the past 4 years on a regular basis, and I learned that most of the guests are comebacks.
The best thing about this hotel is its1 km stripe of sand beach. No other hotel has this wide space for beach activities. The hotel is also widely spread around a nice botanic garden with plenty of nice trees and flowers and swiming pools, so if you are looking for nice scenery you have it all at the Fort Arabesque (even the elevators have panoramic views of the sea).
The rooms are very, very large and well decorated. An upgrade to a higher category room or suite is also a good idea, as the rooms are amazing and worth the difference in price.
Food is good, a lot of variety is offered through a buffet service. If you prefer a seated dinner, you can always use the beach bar "a la carte" restaurant. Service is quick, housekeeping friendly and the beach boys are very helpful.
Finally, If you come to compare the hotel to other hotels in Makadi bay or in the Hurghada region, I rate the Fort Arabesque as better and of higher quality. I also took a glimpse at the wonderful SPA and topnotch gym (opening soon), which shows the management's commitment to excell in improving the hotel facilties and its determination to be ahead of the competition.
I would strongly recommend this hotel. With special thanks to "Pouppy" who made sure we had a wonderful time.
P.S. The management is very open to suggestions, always available, and takes the guest comment cards very seriously.
