This was our third time on holiday staying in the Movenpick Hotel Taba but the first time spending Christmas and New year.We flew out to Egypt on the 18th Dec 2012 till 1st Jan 2013 booking through Olympic Holidays when getting to the hotel we was welcomed by new and old staff a speedy fast check in, cool refreshing fruit cocktail plus a mint scented damp face cloth was given to us on arrival this was the start of our holiday. The hotel is beautiful, very clean and well maintained in ever way,it was beautifully decorated in the hotel and outside in the grounds with a great feeling of Christmas away from home. Me and my family went down to Sherazad's restaurant for our evening meal great selection of HOT and cold foods if there wasn't anything you fancied the chef was outside every meal cooking a variety of European foods plus french fries if wanted nothing was to much trouble all we had to do is ask. Great magical feeling on Christmas Eve and new year party that was put on by many staff in the hotel a good selection of foods for different nationalities including Beef,Lamb,Turkey,Sea food,Mashed potatoes, lots of vegetables and much more to offer great entertainment that was put together by Kabaka Kabachok and the animation team, through out our stay was none stop and there was never a dull evening there was always some kind of entertainment in the hotel that suited everyone. Afternoon activities included darts,yoga, stretch and tone the outside pool was abit cold but it was ok when your body got used to it but there was a inside pool that was heated that was nice and the sea was warm to.
All in all we would like to thank Mohamed Ahmed for sorting the transfer and sorting out taxis when needed,Mostafa Darsh and Eslam Soliman also was great with us by taking us down to the restaurant by the hotel club car when needed,Ramy Mahmoud was a great chef that did cook some excellent dishes, Mohamed Awad great waiter always smiling when ever you saw him and always asking if we need more drinks lol,Ramadan Ali restaurant manager always checking the food and making sure there was plenty of food for everyone this is only a few name that a can remember but i think that everyone that works in the hotel does play a good part in making this a great hotel to stay in but i wished that there was more English people would stay in the hotel they don't know what there missing out on,
we will be booking soon for this Christmas and New year as we had a great time spending time with special friends
