“Nice christmas familly vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

The hotel is beautiful, quite clean and well Maintained. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas and that made the kids very happy from the entrance in the lobby. The greatest thing has been the niceness of the staff. We were there (with 2 kids) from 22 to 29th of December 2012. Everyone was extra nice to us and made the children feel at home, after a day we felt very comfy with everyone. There was a wonderful party for Christmas eve. We were given two communicating rooms which made the whole stay very easy to manage with a 2 and 8 years old. The food was the weakest point. The main restaurant seems to offer a great variety but not much to the West European taste (we could always eat vegetables and fruits though). We ate at the Chinese restaurant once and were thrilled about the food. Great gym, not too busy! The spa treatments are decent but having the staff managing your time in and out of each element (sauna, Jacuzzi, hamam) was a bit odd. The outside pool was ice cold and the kids refused to go into the indoor pool as the animation team had spat out water on it during one of their show (the animation team was another weak point). Luckily the sea was at perfect temperature and we did enjoy every bit of it (staff at the beach was extra nice, they would come and install towels and everything for us which was greatly appreciated having to watch over the kids). We roamed around to the next door Hilton and did not regret our choice of the movenpick as the setting of the Hilton was awfully hiding the sun light from the pool and generally much less attractive than the Movenpick. The transfers and our local guide (travel evasion) were nice and appropriate. Make sure you have lunch once at the Sherazade’s terrace, that was one of our nicest times there. Thanks to Kia (French speaking) for being so nice to us but please, please speak louder and slower during the show as we did not get a word of the translations. We also enjoyed snorkeling and saw beautiful fish, all we needed was a mask and tuba (we got one at the hotel shop). Overall it is a good buy for the price but not up to the European 5 stars standards. We did feel nostalgic when leaving as everyone had been so so nice.

This was our second visit and if anything it was even better than the first. It is a relaxing environment with little in the way of activities except for swimming, snorkelling and the gymn and spa area. There are a few shops at the Hilton resort next door (which does not look anywhere near as nice as the Movenpick) but Taba is really just the hotels and beaches.

The bungalow rooms overlooking the sea are highly recommended being spacious and clean with their own patio and a quiet swimming pool to the rear.

The snorkelling is amazing - a coral reef with lots brightly coloured fish is just off the beach - the deep blue waters and variety of coral and fish are breathtaking.

Staff and service are first class - waiters both at the restaurant and pool side remembered our preferences by the second day and were prompt with refills of coffee (really good) and drinks. Housekeeping was exemplary.

We preferred the atmosphere of seashells restaurant to the larger main restaurant even though there was a wider choice in the larger restaurant. The range of breakfast and lunch food was very good - omelettes and crepes cooked to order for breakfast and always a good selection of fruit, yoghurts and cooked items (including felafels) with excellent bread, croissants and pastries.

Main courses at dinner always provided a wide choice including fish, beef or chicken in sauce with fresh vegetables and a pasta dish. Plenty of salads with cheese. Desserts were excellent with a range of french style patisseries and Egyptian sweets.

As the only 2 British people in this hotel we couldn't have asked for better treatment or attention. Our sea view room was both spacious and comfortable.
The majority of guests were either East European or Russian, with only a handful of French & Belgian's.
European guests are directed to a restaurant exclusively for them where The Manager, Mr Salima and his excellent staff do everything to ensure you are catered for. Unfortunately I contracted tonsillitis during my stay and the Doctor asked Mr Salima to prepare more English type dishes to help with my recovery. This was done every meal time until we left.
The medical treatment I received in the on-site clinic was second to none. This was evident throughout the hotel, whenever we came into contact with staff. From the guys on reception to the cleaners, bar staff & upper management every effort was made to make us feel special.
In general we find the service in Egypt to be of a high standard, however at the Movenpick this can only be described as exemplary. This was our second visit to this hotel, where we know the beach & snorkelling is fabulous, but the splendid service was a real bonus. We intend to return again next year.

I was a bit worried when I read some of the reviews on this hotel but overall we had a very nice holiday! Taba is the ideal location when you are looking for a quiet beach holiday, don't go there when you want to go out at night or like to go shopping because there is nothing in the vacinity. There are some very nice excursions though (Jerusalem, Petra), which we couldn't do because we were travelling with our 2 year-old.

When we arrived at the hotel, we had a very warm welcome at the reception and our room was just great! We stayed at one of the beach bungalows, very large, situated immediately near the beach and near the pool. There was a kingsize bed for us and a single bed for our 2 year old, staff immediately proposed to change the single bed in a baby bed when they saw our son, I appreciated their proactive approach.

The surroundings, the beach and the pools are beautiful and since we stayed there in low season, everything was very quiet and well kept. The spa is very professional and the massages we had were great.

There is one great BUT to this hotel and that is the food. Most of what you read here on tripadvisor is correct: the food is far from great, which is a pity because everything else is. Contrary to most europeans we did eat at the main restaurant because you had much more choice there than in seashell restaurant. But it is true: the main restaurant is noisy and packed with russians (few arabs however, maybe because it was low season). They didn't bother us and (once you understand the tipping system), the service in the main restaurant was excellent. The food itself is far from terrific, if the chef only tasted what came out of his kitchen, he would know for him self: undercooked or overcooked vegetables/potatoes/meat, cold dishes, watery soup. One advice: the local food is great and the pasta is ok. Breakfast on the other hand is absolutely ok!

If the food issue would be handled this could be a great hotel, so I hope management will take into account the many remarks they receive on this point.

Room Tip: Don't book a room with garden view, some of them are not well situated Tip the waiters in the r...

The hotel was just perfect. Unfortunately we landed in Sharm El Sheikh and it was a long bus trip to Taba, but it was worth it. Just next to the Israeli border this little paradise has a very special atmosphere. Beautiful beach, great food, and really large rooms. The breakfast/lunch/dinner buffet is just unimaginable. We had a great time every time we had a meal. Overall we did have a great time in Taba Movenpick.
