Hotel Three Corners El Wekala Golf Resort Hotel 0 star

Taba Heights - NONE Taba Taba, Egypt
Amy Adejokun Section editor

The small and only 4 star hotel in Taba Heights, the Three Corners El Wekala, is built high up in the resort village, offering pleasant views of the Red Sea but without direct access to the beach. Covering just a small area, this hotel mainly accommodates families, so the swimming pool area is not necessarily a relaxing place to be! Only holidaymakers who like to socialise will feel at home in this hotel, which became a Thomas Cook Holiday Village in October 2010.

    Location 6.0 /10

    The Three Corners El Wekala is in the resort village of Taba Heights, which is about 45 minutes by car from Taba airport. Other than the facilities of the resort itself, the hotel can boast being surrounded by the turquoise sea of the Gulf of Aqaba and the mountainous Sinai desert. The village of Taba, 10 mi north of the hotel, and the small harbour town of Nuweiba, 35 mi south of the hotel, have very little of real interest and very few shops.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    If you opt for a duplex family room or if you have the chance to stay on the top floor of the complex, your room will have a vaulted ceiling, a small touch that brings great charm to these otherwise ordinary but colourful lodgings.
    In contrast with the hotel's plain corridors, the colours in the Three Corners' 215 guest rooms provide food for thought. You'll probably like the patterns on the tiled floor, but perhaps the green furniture a little less. To each his own! However, the facilities provided are perfectly acceptable: the beds are large, as are the beautiful balconies and storage areas, and other amenities include individual air-conditioning, a hair-dryer, a minibar, a direct telephone line, and a television. However, it is unfortunate that the hospitality products in the bathroom (with a shower) only include a soap.
    As for the views, the luckiest guests will enjoy a view of the Red Sea beyond the golf course. The other rooms have a view of the mountain, courtyard, or village. The rooms facing the village can be very noisy, especially on Fridays in summer when the Taba Heights Festival is held (which includes music, crafts, and entertainment).

    Overview 6.20 /10

    This hotel displays a strong contrast between its very simple - almost monastic - architecture, and the noisy family entertainment. The Three Corners hotel covers a small area. There are no large open spaces, instead the buildings are arranged around several courtyards planted with palm trees and the pedestrian street of the 'uptown village'. On the whole, the layout is quite nice. With its high, brick, vaulted ceilings and iron bars, the design of the lobby is minimalist, resembling a monastery. The grey walls and brick floors of the corridors leading to the old wooden doors of the rooms give the same impression of peaceful and cool frugality, which is far from negligible in summer when temperatures reach 42°C. The common areas are unfortunately not as tranquil, as they are centred around the swimming pool and its paddling pool and include two hotel bars, a restaurant, and a games area with billiards... The deckchairs seem to somewhat crowded around the pools. In short, the atmosphere is convivial but not very relaxing when the hotel is busy. In addition, a team of 6 English-speaking activity leaders ensure that everyone is having fun, and overall, the staff is absolutely charming.
    Nevertheless, the El Wekala has very few facilities. Its gym is very basic, even a little dirty, and only the children's club stands out, as it is original and overlooks the village's pedestrian street.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The all-inclusive package includes access to the hotel's 3 bars (lobby, pool, beach) and the buffet restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It has the same architecture as the rest of the hotel and breakfast is served in an arcade-style room, under brick arches. It is a pleasant if not very practical space. The buffet offers a fairly wide choice of hot and cold dishes but lacks variety.
    Fortunately, the location of the Three Corners in the Taba Heights resort village allows guests to easily take advantage of its 5 à la carte restaurants. Chez Pascal, a Belgian restaurant, is managed by the El Wekala. The other 4 restaurants offer Asian, Mexican, Indian, and Eastern cuisine. In addition, guests staying at the hotels in Taba Heights can book a table at the à la carte restaurants of the other hotels in the complex (14 restaurants in total), for a supplement.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The Three Corners does not have direct access to its beach, which is about half a mile beyond the golf course, located between the private beaches of the Sofitel and the Marriott hotels. However, a direct shuttle bus to the beach, leaving every 10 to 15 minutes, along with the village's two blue shuttles, will quickly take you there (from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, and, as with any public transport, avoid peak hours!). The beach area is an extension of the hotel. The El Wekala has its own bar (included in the all-inclusive package), toilets, showers, and a second swimming pool that is not very large but much quieter than the one on the hotel grounds. Plastic deckchairs with cushions are provided on the beach, positioned in pairs under a woven parasol and protected by a windbreak.
    Just like everywhere in Taba, the setting is especially attractive, with the coast of Saudi Arabia in sight across the clear, turquoise water. There are coral reefs just a few metres from the shore and you can swim around among them, as if you were in an aquarium. Time to put on your masks! Do be careful of your feet though, plastic sandals or diving footwear are strongly recommended. Simply getting into the water is unpleasant if you're barefoot because of the numerous stones in the sand.
    Finally, as part of the Taba Heights resort village, the El Wekala provides guests with privileged access to its 2 mi beach and the Waterworld centre that offers snorkelling, diving, and numerous other water sports (with a supplement).

    To know

    The Three Corners hotel is located in the Taba Heights resort village. Holidaying here gives you easy access to more than 2 mi of beach, an 18 hole golf course, the Waterworld water sports and diving centre, and the 'uptown village', which consists of a shopping street and 5 restaurants. Two free shuttle buses stop outside the hotel every 20 minutes, taking guests to the other hotels and amenities in the village.
    Three Corners is a Belgian hotel chain with 12 establishments located on the Red Sea.

      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.

      The Hyatt Regency was the first hotel to open in the Taba Heights resort village and is still the nicest of them all. Its location, its original architectural qualities and its gardens are its main assets. Spacious and full of surprises, it offers entertainment in French due to a Framissima hotel on-site and was our favourite hotel in Taba.

      The Mövenpick Resort, actually owned by a Swiss Group, has one of the highest concentrations of French guests in Taba. Spacious and well equipped, the hotel offers all of the standard international services you would expect, and all with excellent service. The only negative thing that can be said about this place is its lack of charm.

      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.
