Went here june 2011 with my boyfriends brother and his family, my boyf our son and some friends. The staff were exceptionally good so helpful and always smiling. I got a call in our room the second day about ollecting cards from reception, i thought they meant we had to collect our towel cards but it turned out mike (the boyf) had lost all his credit and debit cards and the gardener had given them to reception, we hadnt even realised we'd lost them! So big thanks to the garden guy!! Then i lost a memory card for my camera! (useless arent i!!) it hadnt been handed into reception and i figured being so small it was probably gone for good so i wrote it off, 2 days later i walked past reception to the bar next to it and the receptionist came running over yelling miss sarah, we found your camera card! Bonus!! turns out he'd had the beach atendants looking for it for 2 days for me :) they genuinely care about your happiness. food was great some people complained but its the only hotel ive been to where icecream is included for free, and theres an amazing dine around scheme so theres plenty of places to eat. only lazy people that cant be bothered to book a la carte (which is FREE) complain theres nothing to eat! we booked the mexican in the town too (a free short bus ride away) through the reception as part of dine around and got a free desert each. I had a huge steak loadsa chips a big icecream and a cocktail it was all spot on and came to less than £10! The rooms were clean and the attendants left heart shaped towels and petals on the bed one night, i had a swan too another time. they really make the effort i felt like a VIP from the minute i got there to the minute i left! i wish i could afford to go this year but now our son is over 2yrs we have to pay full price for him so going to sharm where we can get a free child place but im gutted because ive been to sharm before and its not a patch on taba heights! the snorkelling if you go from the pier at the next hotel and swim round is amazing. again if you're not lazy you'll see loads, if you just walk off the beach you wont see so much so my advice is to swim from one pier round to the next. we saw morays sand eels lion fish puffer fish a blue and yellow ray some turtles and tons more. i saw some reviews saying the snorkelling wasnt great... it so IS!!! seeing the turtle was magical! Theres a lovely spa, the staff never once hassled us, its just there if you want to use it. other places ive been people hound you all day trying to sell you massages etc but not here. we made so many friends. one of the bar staff even bought my son a toy car. they are amazing with kids. he was only 1 and a half and it was great knowing there were so many extra people looking out for him. a few times he ran past the life guard me chasing trying to stop him and the life guard caught him twice from falling and gave him a big inflatable toy to distract him. the beach guys always joined in volleyball and if we all wanted to play theyd sit at the side with conner and get him to watch us. which was great because it meant i didnt have to miss out i knew he was safe in their hands and i could see him but still play volleyball :) I Could go on but i cant big up this hotel enough!!! ITS AMAZING! SEE FOR YOURSELVES!!!
