This place has a whole load of highlights. It’s home to 5 pools, which are surrounded by tropical gardens and come with islands and water features. Wander through the palms and you’ll come to a sandy beach – head down to the shore to try the likes of canoeing and windsurfing. There’s also a thatched massage hut. And whether you’ve set up camp by the pools or on the beach, you’ll find open-air cocktail bars to keep you going with drinks. Food-wise, there’s a buffet restaurant and a beachside grill. The grill is great for candlelit dinners, and it gets rave reviews for its steaks and seafood.

Why so many people return to this hotel
This is our third visit to Fort Arabesque and it is the only hotel in the world I return too. The hotel offers great value for money and service. The staff all wish to help and greet you and have been employed at the hotel for many years. The gardens are a picture and make an enjoyable short walk. The food is buffet style but with a vast choice, the fish and the omletes are particularly good. The beach is long with plenty of sun beds. The sea us warn and very easy to enter, in fact if you do not wish to snorkel you can just stand on sand and look at the fish. This is the ideal hotel for a rest, read a book and swim. It is easy to snorkel off the beach or one can go on boat trip to dive or snorkel. A good hotel for couples and strongly recommend a holiday here.More
Yes. we returned
Reviewed this hotel last year and we returned again for 10 days this January as part of a longer trip moving on to Luxor. Rereading last year's review...nothing has changed. Everything is excellent except the breakfast which are, frankly, abysmal. We have now stayed in about 15 hotels in Egypt and all have better cold meat and cheese than the Fort. Cannot believe they can get this so wrong when everything else is good. Why?More

Four of us have just returned from this hotel having spent a week in one of the two bedroom villas, and a great holiday was had by all. Outside the hotel there is really nothing to do or see unless you want a long trip to The Valley of The Kings. However inside the hotel you will find very nice staff both welcoming and helpful, very nice accommodation both the villa and the main hotel was excellent and so clean. The food both in The Pavilion (exclusive use if you upgrade) and the main bars and restaurants left us with nothing to complain about. I certainly will return and certainly would recommend itMore

We have just returned from a weeks break here and absolutely loved the hotel and staff. We are a couple in our late 20s and wanted a week of utter relaxation. We got if. Great staff, great location, great service, great weather. Just brilliant. More
