I would recommend it. Good service, nice private beach, and if you are lucky with the weather, you will get it all. Nice staff, own diving centre, food was ok with me (plenty of salads & pasta, some fish and a lot of meat), a lot of things to do, some music and dancing in the evenings, some animation (not every day), but generally it is quite place for beach and pool lovers, and also for diviers
just returned from a 2 weeks holiday in the radisson taba which on first impressions i have to say looked wonderful it looks like a 5 star hotel but we found it to be dirty and there was nothing to do at nite we all got tummy bug which we have never had on holiday before on talking to people which we did talk to most people staying there we found almost everybody to have had someone in their party to have the bug
what a relief!
I feel I have to write about our recent holiday at the Radisson. After booking, I read the reviews listed, and was worried when many said about the staff not smiling and being unfriendly. I was thinking we had booked the wrong place for a pleasant holiday. Well for those who have booked, do not worry. We had a great time! The staff could not do enough for you, the service was second to none. All, without exception, would say goodmorning to you, even the gardeners. The staff in the bar were great fun, and service was very quick. The food was extremely varied, even for a fussy eater as I am. The whole complex was clean and fresh, no tummy worries. We had upgraded to a Marine room which had premium views, tea and coffee, robes and slippers. It also had a bowl of fruit as a welcome. It was a surprise when we arrived as we had assumed we would be in a large hotel, but the rooms are in small blocks scattered around the beautiful gardens. It gives a feeling of space and peace. The pool area is huge, cleaned every morning, and plenty of beds and shade. The beach has the same. The only downfall is if you like dipping your feet in the waters edge, you cant. There are large pebbles and rocks, so you have to enter the water from the end of the jetty. This is because of the protected coral. Snorkelling is a must to see these wonderful fish, which are right off the end of the jetty. In all a great holiday, and will certainly return.
Don't go there!
This hotel is advertised as a 5 star and we were so disappointed it was nothing more than a 3 star rating. It was shabby in appearance and the waiting staff were all very miserable and rude. The dining was a free for all and it was impossible to get a drink with your meals as there was a shortage of staff here.
There are 2 bars open in the evening both very small and tacky and wait a long time to be served. There are no amenities in the evening and guests were just sitting around the very small reception area very bored.
There is no where to go outside this hotel it is on a dirt track of a road of which leads to nowhere. We ask the reception to call a taxi for us one night needless to say it never turned up.
We had a wasted weeks holiday here and holidays are very precious this one was a total rip off.
Steer clear of this hotel we booked through 'Longwood Holidays'.
Beautiful resort providing excellent value for money. Be prepared to book trips as there is nothing out side the hotel grounds. (Petra was worth it - the market trip was not, the trips are pricey but as the holiday is so cheap I didn't mind too much)
All inclusive was surprisingly pretty good EXCEPT you have to work hard at meal times to get more than a single glass of 'wine' and the wine served was watered down - It looked and tasted watered down so I checked the bottles!! Bit cheeky but to be honest not a deal breaker!
I was surprised to have a male masseur and probably would not have chosen one but was v good value.
The pontoon was fun and the snorkelling a treat!
Super value, excellent resort even if a bit barmy at times!
ok, for those who say the foods bad may i suggest the chicken nuggets & chips! (I met 3 couples who slated the food) why?! The head chef (christian) is a nice guy, the food is almost without limits, im a chef and for me to say it was good is a recommendation, the staff were very friendly and as someone said in an earlier review, they cant do enough for you. People say there isnt much to do there, kind of true. Having said that its the kind of place that lets you relax 110%, if you want all the annoying bells & whistles go to Butlins in Skegness! you can however do lots if thats what you want, st catherines monestary, petra (wow), coloured canyon, quad bike trips into the sanai desert, snokelling etc etc etc........ In my humble opinion (head chef of 5* hotels) this really is a good place to chill (in 35c?!!!). im going back in 4 weeks (june 2005) to chill again. Cant wait! For those who didnt like it, go spend £2768 in bali EACH! I paid £335 beat that!!!!! Thank you for reading & take my & other peoples word for it, its great!!!
