Fort Arabesque


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.

Really good enjoyable holiday

before i travelled to this hotel approximately 2 weeks before I had emailed them and had asked for a bottom floor room near the main hotel in the West wing due to my wife not being very mobile. I had had an email back saying that they would try but they could not promise anything.Upon arriving at this hotel at approx. 22.30 hours, my wife had struggled all day with having to stand on her feet and also there not being much help at the airport to help her to get to the taxi rank. We eventually got ot our hotel. The reception was clean and tidy we were told to wait and somebody would help us with our luggage and show us to our room. just as we left the reception we noticed a wheelchair and subsequently asked if we could use that to get my wife to the room. They had not problem with tat. When we got to the room which was a fair distance away , so we were glad we had the wheelchair, There was a plate of food waiting for us on the table, we wheeled my wife in and I mentioned that they can take the wheelchair. They said no keep it for the holiday. this was totally unexpected and as a foot note we had been looking last minute if we could hire one from local sources before we arrived. The hotel was very clean and tidy. We did get our room on the bottom floor right near to the pool and restaurant. The food was both tasty and hot and I never went to any meal coming away thinking there was nothing I wanted to eat. Overall it was an excellent stay, staff were very helpful, and we would go again. At the end of our stay they did not charge us for the wheelchair which again was gratefully appreciated. Would definitely go again and would recommend it.More

Excellent snorkelling but tired hotel

The coral and range of sea life was excellent - 5 star. However the level of service, and the condition of the rooms in the East wing (the original part of the hotel) were of a lesser quality than I have experienced in other Egyptian hotels - 3 star.More

Not the Best

Have just returned from our fourth visit to this hotel. Previously would have rated it at four star but not this time. Our room was clean but certainly needed some remedial work on the décor. We arrived at three in the morning so only realised that there wasn't and tea or coffee making facilities in the later morning even thought the brochure said that it was available in all rooms. On asking for this facility was told it would be an extra five euros per day. The proportion of UK visitors was a lot lower than on previous visits. The majority of the guests probably about seventy five percent were from Germany and ten to fifteen percent from eastern Europe. Because of this, most of the conversations with staff started in German. I should add that we did not have a problem with any of the staff from the room cleaners to the managers. The downside and most disappointing was the food and self service restaurants Although there seemed to be a good selection, to my wife and I everything tasted very bland. The tablecloths were not changed after use and many were grubby and stained. First all inclusive holiday I have been on and ended up losing several pounds in weight. To visit the A-La-Carte restaurant there is a surcharge of up to 280 E.Pounds. The night my wife and I visited there was only two other customers. First time in a week that I had a tasty meal. Although there are plenty of sunbeds on the beach and near the pools the state of the cushions leaves a lot to be desired. Every cushion we used was badly stained and several had rips in the fabric. Clean beach towels are available daily and always a good supply. The grounds are kept tidy and clean. The beach is cleaned each evening and during the day any rubbish is collected on a regular basis. Wifi is available but at a charge and then only in reception and the beach bar area. All in all a reasonable three star experienceMore
