The place is amazing and truly worth a visit. But is spoiled by a staff that is extremely unprofessional, rude and knows nothing about people management. Even though the place is centered around spending the day and enjoying a meal, they refused to let us in except 2 hours before our food is served, despite having confirmed to us that... More

As you enter you feel the Medieval vibes as you acend the ramp into the castle. On the inside the castle offers some great entertainment and great menu... More

The place is nice but children are not welcomed there.. That's ok with me coz I didn't know, but the way the staff used to inform me after paying and checking in was unacceptable and terribly rude... I left without any negotiations coz I went to Taba to have peace of mind and soul nothing else. I have been to... More

The place is just magical, amazing and breathtaking. We had lunch there and enjoyed the sunset. The offer slow food cooking so u better go there before being so hungry. U can enjoy the pool and the view. It is just amazing and extremely recommended for an amazing quality time.

Not our first visit to the Castle (says something), we live in Cairo. A little expensive but it is worth the several hour wait for the food - I recommend the lamb or beef, seafood doesn't seem to benefit in the same way from the slow-cook process. You will need to order the food to make the minimum charge worth... More
