A fantastic hotel for re charge of batteries. Food... Such a huge choice available I defy anyone to find something they like. Rooms... Immaculate Views.... Stunning Pools... Fantastic Staff... Very attentive. Snorkeling and beach.... Fantastic. Max has really made his mark at this hotel. And thanks to the very helpful Victor on front desk for his kind help

Had a week here at the end of Feb. Lovely clean room close to the main reception/restaurants, very friendly staff - especially in the beach bar where we went every lunch time and for drinks in the evening. Having been to Egypt 5 times before, this is definitely one of the nicer hotels I've stayed at. The food here was...

Great hotel! The staff could not do enough for you from the moment you walked through the door until the moment you leave. All the staff, from receptionist to the gardeners were excellent and a credit to the hotel. The location is spot on, right on the beach front with fabulous coral all over the bay. It is excellent to...

Booked holiday 6 days before we travelled, never thought to go to Egypt but had a wonderful time and will certainly return later this year. The resort is visibly beautiful, we walked around the gardens and videotaped all the walkways as the flower displays were amazing. The private beach is enormous and within minutes walk from all rooms, the sand...

Good house reef. Had a basic room in newly reopened West Wing, which was spacious and fine. Wouldn't bother with a room upgrade or a villa unless you have very specific needs. Buffet food all fine, lots of choice. Don't understand some of the negative comments about this hotel - there are plenty of tables in the restaurants, you don't...

Our 2nd time at Fort Arabesque, we think it's great. We stayed in one of the villas this time, which are quite a lot more ££ but for us, well worth it. You get a very comfy superking bed, rain shower bathroom, loads of space and a comfy lounge with big tv and the most fantastic domed ceiling. As well...

Our room on the third floor was excellent and had a lovely view. Food in the hotel was very good, buffet style, plenty of choices at every meal.
