Me & my boyfriend (I was 23 he's 29) flew out on the 6th sept for 10 nights for my birthday (13th sept). The hotel at first looked beautiful! Our flight had been delayed so by the time we arrived we had missed dinner, luckily the staff had left us some bread rolls, ham cheese etc in our rooms which...

We are so glad we chose this hotel. The best reef/ section of the beach was our main consideration, as we could see the very mixed reviews this hotel receives. We stayed for a week. I can only say from our experience, you will find what you are looking for, so it's up to you whether you take a 'glass...

Just returned from 18 nights spent at this Hotel. A good holiday was had by us both but whether we return is another matter there will need to be a lot of changes made to improve things to entice us back. The only reason at present we would return for would be the amazing house reef and beach. Lots of...

Just got back from a week at the fort arabesque. This was our 3rd visit as a family to this hotel. The hotel is great , very clean , friendly staff, good food and an amazing beach! If I had to pick a negative the only thing would be no free wifi.

This hotel served a purpose for everything we wanted, relaxing, sunshine and clean. We upgraded to a villa - worth every penny for the space but also the a la carte restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Beware - all inclusive mini-bar just mean soft drinks no alcohol you need to go find that and put it in the fridge yourself....

We have recently returned from a 10-day holiday at the Fort Arabesque. Internet - strongly objected to the ridiculous charges made by this hotel. 20 (TWENTY) euros per device per week for a limited area - it's not even free in the reception area. My partner and I, with a phone and a tablet each, would cost 160 (ONE HUNDRED...

The hotel is huge, at first view is very nice but in the public areas there is sand & cigarette butts everywhere. The grassed areas were uncut and the boarder flower beds were full of weeds. generally, the clientele is of the older generation. I don't mind that myself as I am fast getting that way. Rooms are generously proportioned...

This was our first visit to Fort Arabesque. We had booked a late holiday in November for some sunshine before winter at home. We had tried to book a hotel we had stayed at twice before but were unable to so we took a chance on Fort Arabesque instead. We were very pleased that we had. We booked a 1...
