Great place for a lazy beach holiday with guaranteed winter sun.This will be our third year at the Marriott Taba Heights which we like because it is the most low-key of the hotels but with friendly service and good facilities. The excursions are fairly expensive but the boat up the gulf of Aqaba and then coach on to Petra is a must. Only do the Blue Hole if you are a good swimmer/snorkeller !! It can be quite rough. It is a pity there is only one house reef, opposite the Hyatt, about half a mile walk from the Marriott but worth the walk.
