My wife and I stayed at Resta Reef for two weeks at the end of March along with her sister and husband. We have been to Egypt ten times and thought we had found the perfect hotel in Taba where we have stayed four times. And then came along Resta Reef chosen solely on Trip Advisor reviews.
Other people have mentioned the staff how friendly they are, nothing is too much trouble, and everyone is very willing.
I could not find anything negative to say about this hotel, and I wonder if those who havecomplained bothered to say anything at the time of their visit. I suspect not.
This hotel is run by a superb management team headed by GM Sherif Afifi, Ramy Operational Manager and the wonderful Jamana Bakry as Guest Relations Officer always willing to help if there is a problem. The Managers at Resta Reef treat their employees as human beings, always laughing and sharing jokes with them, and working alongside them, which I suspect is responsible for the way the staff feel they can interact with guests, making you feel one of the family
Mention must also be made of the food, some of the best we have had for the star rating of the hotel. The Head Chef, his deputy Abd El Rahim and all the chefs we met tried there best to pleaseand during the two weeks we were there we did not here of anyone with an upset stomach. My wife said that this is the first hotel in Egypt where they have cut up chickens the European way, instead of just hacking threm to ,pieces. The drinks are also better then other hotels we have stayed in. In December we stayed in Makadi Bay, the wine, whisky, brandy and gin were undrinkable, but here they were all very acceptable. Many names have been mentioned in other reviews and we endorse them all. Please do not be put off by negative reviews, this is a great hotel. The hotel cannot be responsible for winds that cause black flags to fly. A little research would tell you that wind is quite normal along the Red Sea coast, although this year it lasted longer than normal. One last thankyou to Charlotte for her help and advice. Insha Allah we hope to see you all again in June.
