The Fort Arabesque is pulled up alongside the Red Sea, with a sandy beach and coral-filled waters on its doorstep.
This place has a whole load of highlights. For starters, it’s right by a sandy beach. Then there’s the pool scene – 4 in total – and bedrooms that come with sea-view balconies and Egyptian woven textiles.
Gardens cocoon the whole hotel, filled with palms, hibiscus and jasmine. Scattered throughout them you’ll find a handful of eateries, plus a stylish spa offering Thai massages and couples’ treatments.

Fantastic resort and good value for money
We travelled to Egypt very soon after the plane was brought down in Sinai, but we were not put off going in any way. There were various security points getting from Hurghada Airport and actually into the resort and we felt absolutely safe. We had previously requested a room in the West Wing as we had read that it was quieter, but we were given a room in the East Wing. We were offered the chance to change the next day but it was not necessary. Our room was conveniently located for all facilities, except the dive centre, and was not noisy at all. The room was clean and well maintained. The resort itself was exceptionally clean and we were very impressed with the recycling bins throughout the grounds. We found the staff were friendly and helpful, providing you showed them the same courtesy. The food in the restaurants was good and varied but sometimes, particularly at breakfast, not very hot. However, there was always food being freshly cooked, so this was not a problem. The only slight disappointment was that cocktails were not included in the all-inclusive package and were very expensive (and not very good actually). There is entertainment every evening in the theatre which is apparently fairly high quality. Can't comment on the Wi-Fi situation as we were on holiday and therefore didn't need it! The pool areas and the beach were all very well managed, and there was never a problem getting sunbeds. You do get people trying to sell you things quite a lot but a polite âno thanksâ suffices. The sea was stunning! There is a reef just off the beach and it was like swimming in an aquarium. There was practically no rubbish in the sea which is amazing and shows that the resort respects the environment. The dive centre is very good and the dive leaders are friendly, helpful and professional. You can hire any equipment and it is of good quality. The diving is, as you would expect, phenomenal. We had a really good time there but probably wouldnât go to that resort again just because we like to be able to walk out of a resort and see the local area, which you canât do as there is nothing to see except desert in walking distance.More
Had an amazing week (wish we could have stayed longer) We travelled as a couple with grandchild in tow ð She loved it too!! On arrival we were directed to a lovely, large room with an amazing sea view. So close to the beach... we could hear the sea! Couldn't hear any lawn mowers unlike the previous reviewer lolll ð Also, it was cleaned to a very high standard every day. Our lovely room attendant made amazing towel sculptures on the bed for the grandchild every day! She looked forward to this after a long day swimming etc! Swimming.... We visited the beach every day. Lovely coral reefs (even in the shallow) No problem getting sunbeds. Occasionally visited the pool. Lovely swim up bar for adults. Shallow swim pool for children. Vast choice of food in restaurant. Sampled everything. No sickness! They cater for everyone, in my opinion. The beach bar (where we had lunch most days) had a choice of burger, hotdog, chips etc...if you can't be bothered going to the restaurant lol....they call them snacks. The pizza there is really good!! The evening entertainment started (for us) in the Arena at 9pm with the Kid's disco. Our girl loved it! Brilliant. A show was put on after this by the animation team...a brilliant team ð After this we retired to bed! A couple of nights we called into the lounge and listened to the singer and had a dance. Lovely! Quick mention about the previous reviewer!.... There are no smokers in the dining areas. Smokers are allowed in outdoor areas... Like anywhere else in the world! The guy appears to have problems with smoking lawnmowers!! ððMore
Noisy, smokey and poor food
As I write all I can hear is the deafening noise of the grass cutting machinery which operates 7 days a week from sunup to sunrise without a let up. If you are a smoker then this could be your dream destination because it seems you can enjoy your filthy habit just about everywhere. The food is mediocre and choice is very poor and because of location you really are stuck with limited choices. On the plus side the beach is close and the dive centre is on your doorstep. The resort spa provides an excellent service. Entertainment is average but snorkelling on the nearby reef is excellent. Hotel management is very poor and they do not listen to complaints. Wi fi is expensive, unreliable and not available throughout the hotel.More

Just returned from a fantastic holiday at this widerful hotel. All I can say is please consider this for your holiday it is very safe to visit and it is a shame that people have stopped visiting Egypt. Please GoMore
Another amazing holiday. It was our forth visit to this fabulous hotel we had a fantastic time. We had a ground floor room with a garden and it over looked the sea. The room boy did a fab job job every day and kept the children entertained with his towel folding skills. The food was great and there was some great choices. The egg chef in the morning made fresh omelettes, fried or poached eggs to order. Lunch and evening meal time was the pasta chef that made up your pasta dish fresh. Also on offer were some great dishes on the salad and hot dishes stand. The staff welcomed us back like we were family. We would recommend this place to anyone we felt so safe. We will be going back.More
