Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Taba Resort Hotel
Chilled out at Nelson Villagefrom polo55
We are planning to go back to Taba, if only to see the boys at the Nelson Pub who were a real great bunch and made me the best plate of chips when I was feeling a bit under the weather.
not a Hilton standardfrom Thefall
Hilton Taba was (at the moment) the worst Hilton experience in my life (I stayed in Hilton Ramses Cairo, Hilton Jumeirah in UAE - they were fine).
The "+": 1) a good clean beach with lots of sunbeds and a great view of Aqaba and Eilat. On evenings you can see the sunset in 4 countries at one time :) (Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel and Egypt)
2) size of the rooms (I stayed at Nelson Village room which is considered to be of a higher category than the rooms in Main Bulding)
3) polite and helpful staff.
The "-": 1) food. No variety at all. No meat (except chicken). Once there was some fish but it was over in 5 min. No juices - neither fresh, nor bottled, - just concentrates. Positive: there were always fruits and vegetables, pastry was fine.
2) So called "All inclusive" system gives you nothing. You have breakfast, lunch and dinner with some drinks included - that's all. Most drinks and snacks in all of the bars are extra, so you get Full Board instead of AI. More than that, this all inclusive system forces the hotel management to decrease the variety of food and drinks ('cause you're supposed to pay nothing). No tips - no service.
3) The "Nelson Village" is separated from main bulding with two roads and two security checks. You can only get to MB by the beach road (eg. if you walk from your room or from the beach). So if you live near the hotel entrance, you have to cross the road and pass the security control gate.
4) Taba is "nowhere to go". Hotels in Taba Heights (Marriott, Hyatt, Sofitel) have the common territory, so their guests are able to walk around. Here in Hilton you have border to the left and the small Tobya hotel to the right. That's all. If you arrive at Sharm-el-Sheikh airport, transfer will take up to 3,5 hours (2,5 if you take a taxi or individual transfer like I did). Hilton is the last hotel in Tsba, so you don't have lots of entertainment during your holiday.
5) Rooms are big, but the furniture is old, carpets are stained and dirty. If you speak to staff, they change everything you want, but that's definitely not 5* standard. Towels are changed daily but returned as dirty as before.
6) Hot water problems, mostly at night. Keep this in mind if you plan an early check-out (at night). Also keep in mind that so-called "picnic box" consists of a bottle of water, an apple, a pack of juice, two small cakes and a piece of cheese. That's all.
Anyway, I went to Jerusalem, so the overall trip was fine. But I'll not go back to Taba. It's not the place to chill out.
Return to the glory days?from NYC2TLV
Another great addition to the hotel is a computer room with three PCs and free internet connection. Sometimes it was difficult to get kids off the computers to check my E-mail but it was still better than paying the typical $15 a hour that other hotels charge.
The pool is a salt water pool, and the qualities of the hotel are the casino and price. The reasons are because casinos are illegal in Israel and the price is usually around just US $100 per night per couple, but I recently booked this hotel through the Hilton website for US $50. The hotel has great views of the Red Sea, and the four surrounding countries: Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.
Nelson Village: While both guests of the hotel and Nelson Village have the same facilities, rooms are different. The rooms at Nelson Village are older and do not have carpeting. Though they face the beach, all have easy access to the beach (some are on the ground level so the beach is just a few metres away), and during high season, those guests at Nelson Village can use a different reception and will have a seperate breakfast set up on the beach. The problem is that since it is open air, birds tend to be a problem at breakfast and it made me a bit uncomfortable.
If you want to take advantage of the hotels facilities, such as the pool, casino or lounges, it can be a bit of an annoying walk to do everytime from your room to the hotel especially if you are in the last block of rooms. You can always walk to the Mövenpick hotel which is probably the same distance from the last block of rooms as the hotel is.
It is Great, but ...from SpiKiii
activities to be made there are mostly outside Taba.. or Even Egypt..
u will have to pay 46 LE >> less than 10$ when comming from Israel but when staying in hilton - and only hilton - u dont pay the 46 LE entry fee in egypt nor the 76 Shekel exit fee in Israel...
about the currency its okay to use any and there's a bank inside the hilton if IF u had to convert ...
some activities will be (can be organized with Hilton)
Beduin Dinner with a beduin show (Taba)
Aquarium (Eilat)- Crossing is free for hotel guests wz no
luggage.. ( u may need this for buying stuff from eilat) - Visa Required for Some
Mount Sinai (where moses got the 10 "wasaya") - Here u will have to pay the 46 LE (Egypt)
Deer Sant Cathrine - Colored Valey (a group of high colored mountains-nice view) (Egypt)
Petra (jordan)- there's exit fees (10 JDs) but not all the nationalities pay them...no need for visa i guess for most of the nationalities (Even Israeli)
about how to reach the hotel from eilat airport - either call the hilton to pick you- or take a taxi to the borders (ma'bar) and u can walk from there.. the hilton is right next to the egyptian borders..
Back to the hotel again, it was nice with good food and a nice beach.. the stuff are nice but privacy is ZERO..
Egyptian police suspect young ppl since the hotel was bombed b4 and some times they do question them and that did really bother me:S
Excellent Excellent Excellentfrom **Bluey14**
The hotel rooms are above average hotel size, have great sized beds, safe, tv,air conditioning etc. I would suggest when you are booking to ask for a sea view room otherwise you can be left looking at the desert. I would recommend this hotel to others and stay there again myself.

absolutely fabulousfrom student-7
Great hotel with a bad reputationfrom Engineer111
The hotel has a fantastic setting on the edge of the Gulf of Aqaba and our room (as do most of the rooms) had a great view of the gulf and the mountains of Jordan and Saudi Arabia on the other side of the water.
The hotel interior and rooms are what one would expect in a resort Hilton. The staff is very friendly - from the front desk to the pool boys. We had a problem with the air conditioning in our room, but it was fixed within minutes.
There are two pools, one fresh water and heated and one salt water and unheated. The salt water pool has a swim up bar and is surrounded by lush landscaping. We also spent some time lounging on the beach, which is just steps from the hotel and, again, had great service.
We spent one day here after two weeks of busy touring and found it to be a great place to relax and recharge. I definitely would recommend it.
This hotel is not recommendedfrom Middle_East_Explorer
Great Diving Basefrom CER
I stayed at this hotel twice in April. If you are coming from Eilat,
The rooms are very large. Well laid out and every room has a balcony with a view of the Red Sea. The landscape is full of trees of flowers and the scent was wonderful.
The main reason to stay here at the moment is the diving. The casino part is being rebuilt and should be open soon. There is a PADI shop at the end of the hotel complex. I dove there for 4 days and can't wait to go back.
There are places to rent snorkeling equipment and small boats but the prices are steep because there is nothing else to do. The area has lawn chairs, hammocks, ping pong and all of that sort of thing.
The restaurant has a focus every night. Asian, Mexican, Egyptian, Italian, that sort of thing. If you stay there longer than 7 days you will start to see the same meals again. The half board price is a deal because there is no place else to eat anyway. Breakfasts are great.
You can do day drips to MT Sinai, which is about 200kms away, to spend that last day after diving before you fly.
I have friends who live in Israel and they go here at least once a month. I am very jealous and can't wait to go back.

Top Local Tips for Taba
Visiting Israel Israel is close, but you will have to pay 45 euros when you leave Egypt (When you go home). Visa for sinai are free (only pay 20 euros when you're planning to visited areas outside of the sinai (Cairo)
Wonderful rest is in a beautiful place From November, 24 for Decembers, 02
Best Last Minute Getaway at a Steal of a Price Go for two weeks, and even if you cannot swim book an introductory dive and see the wonderful world below the sea in the very capable care of thedive instructor, my friend has NEVER been in the sea or a swimming pool and did this dive UNBELIEVABLE. There are very interesting places to visit Petra, Jersuselm, and of course The Pyramids.
