Sofitel calls itself a "5-star luxury" hotel - however it deserves 3 or 4 at the most.
The hotel itself is very nice, the rooms are up to standard. The food however is mediocre, and the service at mealtimes (for drinks) quite slow. Some of the staff are very helpful, others not too happy to serve.
The prices for food/drinks are average - for Europe. Water (which you will need a lot of !) cost $2 for a 1.5 L bottle. Some people bought their water at the shops at the 3 corners hotel - at half the price.
There are 3 other hotels nearby, but nothing else - no village, shops - nothing at all.
It is a shame that the hotel remains mediocre, since it has potential to become an amazing hotel with more attention to detail.
Unique Qualities: Pool area is very very nice, great view to the sea (as have all three hotels here). Small reading library and some board games available.
Rooms are OK, but no bath. Also no reading lights (unless you want to blind everyone else in the room). Small balcony. No tea/coffee making facilities (bring your own !). You will have some walking to do from your room to the pool/dining room, but this is the same for all the hotels here,
Food is OK, would have expected more from a French chain. Desserts were a specialty but repeated themselves. Chefs were friendly, waiters less so. Waited 15 mins one morning for coffee.
There is a free shuttle service so you can visit all 4 hotels in the area - worth doing, the Hyatt has amazing pools.
There is an "animation" program every day - kids' activities, water aerobics, step aerobics, a show at night. The main activity here however is swimming and/or sunbathing.
Hyatt nearby has a small smokey casino.
TV has 2 movie channels (yes I am shallow) - also has Israeli channels 2 & 10 with a lot of English-language series.
Address: Km 42 Nubai Taba Resort
Comparison: about average
Directions: Taba heights - next to Marriot, Hyatt, 3 corners
