Hotel Morgana Beach Resort Taba Hotel 4 star
Easyexperts
Nuweiba Road Km 15 South Taba Taba Golde Taba, Egypt
Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Morgana is a semi-circle construction built around a huge swimming pool, and first impressions are that it provides family-orientated facilities, offering the all-inclusive formula. However, a closer look reveals that this club Marmara establishment certainly doesn't deserve the 4 stars that it boasts.

    Location 6.0 /10

    Like many other hotels in Taba, the Morgana stands in between sea and desert, approximately 2 mi to the south of Taba Heights. It's slightly withdrawn from the road that leads to Nuweiba, and has as sole neighbours two hotel construction sites that have currently come to a standstill. Taba airport is around a 45-minute drive away. The village of Taba, 13 mi north of the hotel, and the small harbour town of Nuweiba, 30 mi south of the hotel, have very little of real interest and very few shops.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    Dubious mixtures of quaint patterns, worn out furniture, strange lampshades, poorly done joints and inadequate paint finishing,... the 191 standard rooms of the Morgana are not exactly the height of refinement. As far as amenities are concerned, regrettably the mini-bar is empty, the phone connects only to the reception desk and there are no hospitality products in the bathroom. However, the bare necessities are there (air-conditioning, TV, hair-dryer, safe, etc.). There are 289 rooms in total, and they're well-lit, spacious, and all include a large balcony (plastic furniture) affording a view of the sea (although sometimes a side view). Tea and coffee making facilities are also provided.
    The hotel also has 53 family rooms which can each accommodate two adults and two children.

    Overview 5.95 /10

    The lobby of the Morgana is quite stylish, featuring columns with mouldings, a vaulted ceiling, a marble-clad floor, and omnipresent oriental style. The welcome is friendly. Upon entering the building, you will discover the sea view, with, on either side of a large rounded swimming pool, the two wings of the establishment stretching out towards the beach. The Morgana was built in 2004 and features a salmon-coloured façade with wrought iron balcony railings, making for a pleasant setting. However, all the white tiling here leaves little room for greenery.
    The large swimming pool features an island planted with grass at its centre, which can be accessed via one of the 3 wooden bridges. Unfortunately, the number of deckchairs available for guests seems insufficient here. In addition to the swimming pool, the facilities on offer include a well-being centre, although guests must pay extra to use any of the amenities on offer here (sauna, Turkish baths, jacuzzi, massage) and sports facilities (tennis, football). Children have not been forgotten either, as there is a special club for them with a playground. The entertainment team speaks English, Arabic and Russian.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Although unfortunately every activity on offer comes at an extra charge, the catering service of the Morgana does make up for this slightly. The Palm Restaurant, which is the main buffet restaurant, the Terrace Snack, which serves pizza and pasta, and all the other bars (beach, pool, lobby) are included in the all-inclusive formula, available from 7:00am to 2:00am. There's definitely nothing to complain about in this respect! However, don't expect there to be rich and varied cuisine on offer.
    However, for dinner, the Coral Beach restaurant does serve a wide range of options, ranging from the all-inclusive snack offer to a seafood menu.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Facing the desert coastline of Saudi Arabia, bathed in the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Gulf of Aqaba, the beaches of Taba are highly pleasant, except for underfoot! The beach of the Morgana is much the same, with numerous corals and multicoloured fish to admire, but beware of rocks and urchins. We would really recommend that you wear sandals, and bring along a snorkel and some goggles to make the most of this place. There is a pontoon that enables you to get to the nicer areas a lot more easily.
    On the beach, there are deckchairs, parasols and windbreakers which provide you with the perfect conditions for enjoying the setting. The Morgana also has an area with a Bedouin tent where you can have tea and puff away on a hookah (for an extra charge) in the shade.
    There are also numerous activities on offer at the Waterworld water centre some 2 mi away in the Taba Heights resort (for an extra charge).

    To know

    The Morgana Beach Resort Taba has had the Club Marmara Taba label since the 26th of October, 2010. It therefore has a French-speaking entertainment team and excursion guides. It's also very popular among a Russian clientele.

        Le séjour avait très mal commencé avec une chambre juste à côté des cuisines, avec les rats et les cafards juste une horreur, les draps sales. Le lendemain nous avons été transféré dans une chambre avec vue sur la mer. La nourriture est vraiment bof bof. Par contre pour la plongée c'est top. Un peu déçu tout de même dans l'ensemble, je m'attendais à beaucoup mieux pour un 4*

        Le club Marmara est idéal pour les jeunes. En formule tout inclus, il permet de manger à l'heure que l'on souhaite même si ce que l'on propose au snack n'est pas d'un grand choix mais sinon il y a beaucoup d'activités. On ne peut pas s'ennuyer même avec les excursions qu'il propose.

      • Advantages

        la nourriture proposait au grand restaurant. Les activités, la propreté des chambres.

      • Disavantages

        la nourriture proposait au snack et les hôtels alentours qui ne sont pas terminaient dont les plages à coté sont très sales.

        Hôtel de bon confort avec une vue magnifique sur la Mer Rouge. Une équipe d'animation sympathique et des employés aux petits soins et adorables. Nourriture (buffet) variée avec un thème chaque soir. Aliments simples pouvant convenir à chacun avec quelques spécialités du pays. Seul point faible : la situation. Convient parfaitement aux touristes à la recherche de farniente. Pas grand chose à faire aux alentours si ce n'est les activités aquatiques notamment la découverte du corail en

        Juste magnifique, dépaysant, marmara l'avait repris peu de temps avant qu'on arrive, mais c'était juste parfait. Allongé sur le transat au bord de la plage, avec le ponton duquel on pouvait admirer des centaines de poissons, et par la même occasion on voyait la côte israëlienne...

      This is without a doubt the most peaceful hotel in Taba Heights, and you will find neither rowdy entertainment nor music by the pool here. What sets the Marriott Beach Resort Taba Heights apart from the other hotels in the area is the clear intention to attract holidaymakers searching for comfort and tranquillity, as well as golfers. One section of the establishment (100 rooms) is also 'child free'.

      This Sofitel hotel is all about the grandeur, its huge lobby incorporating an arched roof depicting the night sky, complemented in turn by the particularly elaborate Oriental-inspired architecture. Its Sinbad Tower has also become symbolic of the Taba Heights resort. This sparkling hotel may not offer the warmest of surroundings, but the facilities here are excellent, making it a great place for those looking for a relaxing or even an active holiday by the sea.

      This, the only hotel in Taba with over 500 guest rooms, is definitely not lacking in attributes. Built in 2006, it is now the largest and newest hotel in the resort of Taba Heights. However, even when it is full, it doesn't feel too cramped, and the InterContinental has even managed to retain little intimate areas for its guests. To sum up, this is a beautiful hotel for a seaside holiday filled with sports activities, ideal for couples, families or groups of friends.

Only holidaymakers who like to socialise will feel at home in this hotel, which became a Thomas Cook Holiday Village in October 2010.
