A great place to go for a relax for a week, Taba is in the middle of nowhere and the airport is awful.
Not much to do in Taba, so if you want action go to Sharm.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone. (read more)

Please go, we are returning again next year. My son said the diving is almost as good as at the Maldives. You will not be disappointed. If you can make your own entertainment GO! (read more)

The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Taba is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Make sure you get your Visa from the tour rep at the airport when you land if you plan to travel to Cairo - £10 plus £5 handling fee.
Do the 2 day Cairo trip through Longwood at the hotel for £105 each. It is really good. Although it is a 6 hour coach ride, which is a bit hard.
I'm planning to go again next March/April time as I enjoyed it so much! (read more)

I was a little apprehensive about going to Egypt prior to departing given the recent bombings in Dahab, but upon arrival I realised there was no need to have been worried. Security was excellent - lots of security checks on the way to the hotel and back to the airport again. The Hyatt Regency was a great hotel - the best in Taba from what we could see, and this was also the opinion of the the locals there. The accommodation and hotel staff were fantastic. Taba is about a 6 hour bus... (read more)

Just returned from a week at the Hyatt Regency Taba Heights in Egypt. Had a great time and couldn't really fault anything. The location, the food, the cleanliness, the service - I could not believe that 1 man alone (the man who cleaned our room every day) could be so tidy!! He left everything perfectly in its place! Folded clothes, and made the beds to perfection. I also highly recommend anyone going there to apply for a Gold Hyatt Passport online beforehand, as this gives you lots of... (read more)

We are planning our 4th holiday in 3 years at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
We have no complaints about the staff of the hotel - however the tour operators did leave our luggage behind on our Ciaro excursion therefore we missed out on Khal-elkhaliki (Ancient Bazzar) - making the journey across the desert one which we would have rather done without, although the museum was interesting, it was a hurried tour and not worth the bother. (Best to book a seperate holiday destination and not combine)... (read more)

First of all before you go make sure you sign up for the HYATT GOLD PASSPORT on the Hyatt Regency Hotel Website.
Just returned from a week at the Hyatt. Had a truly fantastic time. Worries about moody staff, unclean rooms, cockroaches and ants proved totally unfounded. I wonder why people make this stuff up?! - I'm very well travelled and this is my 5th time in Egypt staying in the best hotels and this one is up there with the best of them. However not quite as good as the Hyatt in Sharm El... (read more)

Taba, Hyatt Regency Hotel - This hotel is really disappointing. I would not return here either for business or pleasure.
I would not recommend it - irrespective of how little you may have paid - and there really are some cheap offers available for this hotel! I conclude the cheap deals are in part because of the terrorist incident at the Hilton Taba last year, and in part because the Hyatt Regency Taba Heights is truly appalling!
The 'Hyatt' brand, highly regarded the world over, is... (read more)

Taba, Hyatt Regency Hotel - As others have recorded, this hotel is very disappointing. With the exception of the several superb pools, the poor quality of the food, lack of customer care skills and inferior service at this hotel were quite astonishing.
I agree with other reviewers that I too would not return here nor would I recommend it.
This hotel is NOT a 5 star. Consider the following:
The poor quality food, the broken cheap furniture including the terrible beds, the ants and... (read more)

Taba, Hyatt Regency Hotel - This is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday with lots of sunshine and beautiful surroundings. Water world is a free bus ride 10 minutes away and that is great. We went paragliding with our two children. The trip to Eilat to see the Dolphins was amazing and there was no hassle crossing the border. The Kids' Club is great and our 6 year old took himself off there most days. The beach bar is lovely but quite expensive. Take some alcohol with you otherwise... (read more)

I have just returned from two weeks at Hyatt Regency Hotel and I loved it. I will definitely go back but probably in the Winter time. As another reviewer has said, it really is like being on Mars, there's these desolate stark mountains and then like a space base - 4 hotels just plomped down there. They are developing a golf course at the moment so will be interesting to see how it changes.
I have never been out of Europe before so am a novice to that much sun and r&r. The food was of... (read more)

The Hyatt Regency Hotel is a good quality hotel situated near to Eilat.
Food is the best we've had in Egypt, good choice and fresh with plenty of veggie stuff. I get the feeling they restrict the amount of nice stuff like pizza though. Also, what is it with water at these places- I am so sick of going to scorching hot countries and having to continually buy expensive bottled water. 5 star luxury ruined by meaness. I wish they'd just stick $20 on the price and give you a few litres in your... (read more)

Ok, there are lots of reviews, but I've been twice to Hyatt Regency Hotel with family and parents and found it to be a very rewarding experience. Remember we are in the east of Egypt, and Taba is basically 4 hotels a half mile apart from each other set on a man made gentle protrusion into the Gulf of Akaba (red sea). Outside the resort it is like a Martian landscape, mountains, red and rocky arid dust. Nothing grows; nothing lives, so all the more amazing how fertile the hotel grounds are.... (read more)

I've been to Egypt a number of times but this was my first visit to Taba. The Hyatt Regency Hotel was well presented but I would say it was more 4 than 5 star...however it is the best hotel in Taba. Don't let that put you off though because the price of the holiday compensates! We had a sea and lagoon view room which gave great views and good, clean accommodation. The food in the seafood restaurant is good but expensive but a welcome alternative to the buffet which is no worse than I've had... (read more)

We do not recommend staying at Hyatt Regency Taba Heights, Egypt for several reasons:
It is most definitely not what it is hyped up to be. To say the least only putting the Hyatt Regency name and 5* service to disgrace.
We received really bad service from their staff, residential manager, and manager assistant that barely speak or write English.
We left some of our items in our room and despite the fact that we rang the hotel immediately on our return to the UK on the same day we left;... (read more)

We selected the Hyatt Regency Taba heights after first carrying out extensive research on the net where by far the majority of reviews read were positive.
The flight over was tight with little legroom and no entertainment and I found having to buy a drink a bit off.
1st impressions when arriving at Taba International were not good as there is little there and the surrounding area looked unfinished.
When arriving at the hotel we were served a cool drink, which was a welcome hello after the 45... (read more)

We visited Taba Heights in 2003. Although we enjoyed the holiday we felt very cut-off from the outside world. This might be a good thing for some people - but there was absolutely nothing else within a long bus ride's distance - no shops, markets, culture. Great if you want a week or two by the pool - not so great if you want a taste of the country you're visiting. Beware of high temperatures in July/August - 40 deg C and up! (read more)

The layout and rooms in the Hyatt Regency Hotel are so well thought out. It is divided into sections - almost like being in separate villas - so despite the size of the hotel, it never felt crowded. Our room was amazing - very good and every room has its own ample sized balcony.
The food was ok - can't quite put my finger on it, but the evening meals did become a bit repetitive.
The bar is designed very well, but the drinks so expensive - which was a real shame. For example - a bottle of... (read more)

The Hyatt Regency Hotel is beautifully laid out, with many relaxing options. five pools and the beach to choose from the hotel never felt crowded, even at full occupancy.
The snorkelling from the end of the jetty is the very best in the world. superb! breath-taking!
Our accommodation was excellent. our rooms were huge, with fabulous bathrooms, Egyptian style domed ceiling and magnificent views across the beach, red sea and mountains beyond.
The base cost of our holiday, taken with Longwood,... (read more)

Hyatt Regency Hotel:
We travelled for a two week stay between 16 Jun 04 - 1 Jul 04 (Longwood Holidays). The flight was more than comfortable and the food was above my expectations. We were previously advised that the flight had no entertainment and took about 5 hours on an Easy Jet style 737. The massive hotel complex is magnificent, well cared for, and most defiantly 5star. The beach is man made and was a little disappointing (in that it wasn't soft and golden like you may have expected),... (read more)

The Hyatt Regency hotel has to be one of the best designed in the world. Every room has outstanding views. The total site is in excess of 40 acres and to walk around it's perimeter is 4.5km. The buffet breakfast is excellent and the evening buffets offer a wide range of food. The staff are very helpful. Prices are extremely good value (current exchange rate of 10 Egyptian pounds to 1 British pound). (read more)

Taba, Hyatt Regency Hotel - A quite resort, but perfect for those looking to get away from it all. I was overwhelmed by the tranquillity of it all. You are able to sit on the beach and not get disturbed and with the weather reaching 90 degrees its a perfect little haven. We did a few tours with Longwood Holidays which were well-organised and value for money. A great place to stay for rest and relaxation and if you want to go sightseeing. We even visited 2 other countries whilst we were... (read more)
