I visited this place first time in 2009 and returned again and again – rain or shine as we love beach and sea and of course everlasting sunshine. We had lovely time in April this year but October visit has been less successful as West Wing (where we prefer to stay) has been partially closed and East Wing restaurant has...

Stayed for a week in September and everything was perfect again. Although they were refurbishing one there was no disruption or noise to spoil the holiday. The food was both good and varied so no complaints there. The beach and the snorkelling were superb. We will definitely be going back for a fourth time.

Just returned from our 16th visit to the Fort. It was obviously a bit different this time because the West Wing(which we like) is closed for a major refurbishment .However, we had a fantastic holiday due in no small part to all the wonderful staff and a lot of regular friends and quite a few new ones. We are not...

However you tend to pay for these .... what you get here is fantastic value for money ....you have all you need .... so what if the rooms are a bit tired and the pools need repainting ...if you need more...

Our second stay at Fort Arabesque was again a wonderful experience. Although there are renovations going on in the West Wing, these in no way disrupted our holiday. The staff were as cheerful and helpful as always and some even remembered us from a year ago. I would like to say a special thanks to the following people: Mohammed omelette...

We really enjoyed our stay in Fort Arabesque. Rooms were perfect. Beach was wonderful clean and personnel there were very careful to avoid possible pollution of sea water, corals or beach sand. You don't need to dive to enjoy the wonderful and different types of colorful fish.
