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. Lunch at the beach bar was basically a snack, you could up to the hotel if you wanted more, wife and I ate there most days though. The pool areas were very...

The reef here is on a par with Marsa Alam. Really nice that you can walk in from the beach, no jetty. Some really beautiful coral and...

But, the sun and the sea and the wonderful Fort Arabesque staff have never let us down. The rooms are spacious and everywhere is kept clean. Maybe needs updating but, hey, didn't detract from the warm and willing care.At...
