We woke up very early (2am) so we could catch our ferry boat to Jordan by 6am. We found our driver waiting for us out at the street and left Sharm around 3am. I had every intention to sleep for the next few hours while we made our way North to (what I thought would be) Nuweiba but I was mistaken. I wasn't too worried about getting into a vehicle …
... long everyone. With late days and scarce internet connections, it has been a challenge writing this. Tomorrow (Feb. 24th) it's off to Morocco to see if it has changed since my visit with Transit tours in 1976. The only thing I remember about that trip is the hole the native men had drilled into the women's washroom in the campground so that they could spy on women in the shower...! We'll see what changes 37 years has wrought - if any...
... way across the sands. Red sand dunes against a brilliant blue sky, the tracks of small insects or birds across the sand and narrow canyons to climb through.
He dropped us off at the start of the canyon and indicated he would pick us up on the other side, we just kept walking as he was nowhere to be seen, saw a camp and walked there but it was empty, he then arrived with wood on the roof and yes this was to be our camp for the night. Nestled ...
The men were actually very friendly and asked me where I would be going in Jordan (I made up a few places from memory that I would be 'visiting' and with that he had given me some very disappointing looking stamps and had even called me a taxi to the city. After what had seemed like it could be a nightmare here I was, in Jordan, visa in my pocket and on my way to Aqaba.
I am staying at the Jordan Flower Hotel ...
Lazed around the hotel until 1pm when we left to get the taxi for the ten minute ride to the train station. . Today's lessons learned: Don't get into a taxi if there is already a passenger, don't get into a taxi if the driver just keeps saying ok even he is agreeing to the price.
Not all taxi drivers speak or understand English. Had quite a saga between the driver, other passenger and eventually a random restaurant ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Taba Heights Marriott Red Sea Resort
First class hotel and grounds. Room very clean, spacious and well equipped. Food absolutely appalling. I was terribly sick for 48 hours towards the end of my week at the Marriott. The buffet in the main dining room which was more like a canteen was of a shocking standard and certainly not 5*. Do pay extra to eat in the Italian Restaurant where the food was far superior. Many of my fellow guests were also poorly. No hot water in our room for over 24 hours due to a burst water main although the hotel did send up 4 bottles of mineral water. Very peaceful, nothing to do at night but great for pure relaxation.
We went to the Marriot in taba, on the 11th of November and stayed for a week. It was a lovely hotel. Let me warn you that the airport in taba, is a bit of tarmac and a convey belt. That is it. We had a 5 hour wait on the way home, so take food and entertainment. The hotel rooms are spotless and lovely and clean, as are the hotel gardens. I am a diver but be ware as waterworld(the dive school) will make you do an induction dive if you haven't dived in the last 6 months, even if you are a Padi diver. Cost $45. Cost for each dive is $60, and from what i could see, they didn't really take you anywhere that you couldn't snorkel from beach. Take a snorkel or do some snorkelling because it is the BEST ever. Go down to the hyatt Hotel (just next door but one) and snorkel off the jetty there. Really nice reef.
This was the best holiday I have ever had! My fiance and I went with Peltours in July 03. It is such a beautiful place, amazing deserted beach, beautiful swimming pools, excellent service. It was thoroughly enjoyable. We went for a week and really felt we hadn't enough time in the hotel as we went to Cairo overnight (fantastic, if you do it take the option of a dinner cruise on the Nile!) and also to Petra in Jordan (breathtaking).
We have just got back from a weeks trip with Peltours to the Marriott at Taba heights Egypt. This is the worse holiday we have ever been on!!!!!
I went here 2years ago and had the best time ,the hotel was lovely,with spacious rooms and very friendly helpful staff,choice of 3 restaraunts and a swim uo bar private beach and huge lagoon stlyle pool.I really enjoyed this holiday it was totally relaxing and trips were also arranged to see Pyramids ect,I have spoken with people who have also been more recent to different hotels and in all honesty the Marriott and the Soffitel are getting the best comments,I would love to go back early next year but with the recent troubles not so sure.
We went half board for 2 weeks and got the bargain price of £670 each ,unfortunatley now its got so popular you are looking more at £450 a week and they are not really offering 2week deals unless you contact the Pelltours website direct.
Hello i have just got back this morning, i am not happy to be back in good old england and pretty soon my holiday will be a fading memory so have decided to share my holiday experience with you.
I dont know how anybody can give this place negative feedback. I spent a week there in June and found it totally flawless. Very clean, good service and the price was fantastic. Possibly the only drawback was the single supplement.
Have just returned from the Marriott at Taba Heights and had the most wonderful time. I would tend to agree with another reviewer that it is perhaps slightly less than 5 star, but do not have anything major to complain about. In terms of hotels dealing with mass tourism the marroitt does it very well.
Researched the resort TABA HEIGHTS and the hotel on the web before we booked. Both had rave reviews. So we were somewhat disappointed when we got there. It WAS GOOD, but not as fantastic as the other reviewers suggested.
I have just returned from the Marriott in Taba Heights and would say that the destination reached my expectations in terms of what I wanted, sun, relaxation and early nights!!
