This was a great holiday to unwind and enjoy wall to wall sunshine with plenty of good food. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Its a perfect holiday for those who just wish to totally relax. its kept beautifully clean and the main entrance floor is very shiny and immaculate. I was with my partner we met many other couples who were enjoying the holiday just as we were. My partner was chatting to others in the pool, he said they were all lovely people who were also saying the same about the hotel that it was clean and friendly. If there is any criticism its that the pool needs a bit of repair work underfoot in places and the cleaners seem to find many excuses to come and find more tips from you where ever possible which becomes rather irritating they seem to invent excuses to come and find you!!!More

Just returned from 10 nights at Nubian Islands, the hotel itself is impressive and spotless, all the staff work so hard they are a credit to the hotel.
Bar staff never stop, always keep you topped up.
Jo was great, if we needed anything in our room or any issues she sorted straight away. You can get a mattress topper for the very hard beds! Tea & coffee for the room too.
The rooms are dark and a little outdated but still clean and spotless, tidied daily.
The pool guy Alaa was great, so friendly, the quiet pool was spotless. Also the bar man here the second week we was there was great, brought drinks to us!
The barracuda restaurants after 1:15 for lunch was great, nice and quiet and always fresh meat on the grill outside.
The main restaurant at 7pm was too busy you couldn't get to anything 8pm it was quiet!
The food at this hotel was great, always varied and so much choice.
There is a handbag & watch shop, we found this better than soho and the guy in there was genuine, had a barter and got two good bags and a watch at a fab price.
The gym was fab for a hotel gym, one of the best ones I've used on holiday!
The grounds of the hotel are kept prestige, these guys work hard too maintaining the grounds.
Pharmacy a little expensive but with an upset stomach for 5 days I would have paid anything to get rid of that.
There is a company there that organise trips - again they are great. The thomson VIP cruise is well worth a day out too, we had to rearrange it due to a upset stomach and they were great at sorting that.
For me there are a few small issues the hotel need to address:
1) late check out - our friends there got a late check out for £33, we were quoted £53 - this is to keep the room for an addition 6 hours!!! We chose not to and used the courtesy room which someone else had used before us so there were dirty towels in there and no clean ones for us.
2) price of wifi - why not just have free wifi in the lobby, we spoke to other guests from other hotels on trips and they had free wifi in the lobby. £5 a day is ridiculous just to check in with family at home.
3) just leaving the hotel we got told abruptivly front desk wanted to see us as we hadn't gave our towel cards back (to which we had!!!) not really what you want just as your leaving the hotel!
Would I recommend this hotel - yes
Would I return - maybe, there's lots of other hotels to try in the area that looked amazing too.More
Last week I came to Nubian island with my girlfriend for a week in Sharm. I had never been before to Egypt but this hotel made it a great first experience. I couldn't find a fault and really found everything great. Jo the guest relation staff was a very nice woman and spoke to us everyday to make sure we had no problems and everything was ok. The animation team here was great and felt very comfortable speaking to them everyday and had great conversations. We met Oskar and Samir who put on good activities everyday and kept us busy in the sun. This was a very good holiday and hope to return to Egypt soon!More
This hotel has a great atmosphere to it. Day and night it's full of life. All the bar staff so so helpful. Friendly. Always wanting to have a laugh with us. The good was delicious such a selection to choose from. With some very tasty deserts.
House keeping was great. Our rooms were left clean with towel art every morning.
Guest relation was always around to help us with anything. Reception were very cheery and helpful also,
The sells guys round the pool were not pushy. They were happy to just speak to us.
The entertainment never let us down. All day they kept us entertained. Water polo. Dance lessons. Volleyball. Stretching. Our days flew by. The evening was just as great. Such a variety of things going on. We loved the variety show. A lot better than we expected. Really they work hard in the heat and they do an exceptionally job, the heat didn't make them loose power.More
To begin with, we arrived at nubian island a little startled as they did not posess a sign of their own. As we drove in and looked through the glass doors, little did we know that the next seven evenings would be filled with nothing but perfection and relaxation!
On our first day we were greeted exceptionally politely by the pool guy, Alaaf. He continued to greet us with his contagious smile throughout our stay, and I honestly felt as though I had found a friend in him. The pool bar guy, named Gergis aka. George was a witty fellow with his unique banter and cheeky chappy smile! His service at the pool was impeccable - continuing to offer us ice cream and soft drinks and chilli and line crisps! Amazing!
We later met Mohammed (this may not be a unique name when in Sharm) who was a very fetching young man, that served us drinks (4 sprites each night, to be specific!). Service with a smile, no matter what!
The beach nearby is amazing - you do get pestered by excursion promoters, however it is a minor setback when you look at the exhilarating view in front of you.
Nubian Island hotel is one of the friendliest hotels I've ever come across in all my years. I reccomend it to anyone who is in need of relaxation - absolute perfection! Thank you to all the workers and Travel republic whom we booked our holiday with - we were nothing but pleased! Definitely a holiday to remember!!More
