This place gives you a huge choice of places to eat, sunbathe and swim. It even comes with its own diving school.
Pools are where this hotel excels, with the star attraction being the infinity one with sea views. There’s no shortage of places to eat either, with the à la carte options including a gourmet French place.
The hotel is on its own private beach. It’s got a jetty, which makes a great jumping-off point for snorkelling. Or you can sign up to the diving school and explore the Red Sea’s world-famous coral reefs.

High expectations of 5 Star resort not completely met
We stayed at ROBB from 11th Aug until 18th Aug, the 1st thing I would like to say was that our stay was to short... We arrived quite late at night and the reception staff was very helpful.. Our room was located in a great position about a 5 minute walk to reception and 5 minute walk to the leisure pool. Our balcony looked over the Adults pool as we had children unfortunately we were unable to go to the pool. Our room was fabulous the towels and sheets were changed everyday and the cleanliness of our room was perfect.. We did a few days around the leisure pool and the infinity pools at no point was the pools overcrowded or we had trouble getting a sun bed, we have been to some resorts where we had to be up by 7am to secure our beds!! everyone around the pools from the bar staff to the towel staff was fabulous.. did love the touch of cold flannels and the spray of water onto our feet and of course the sun glass cleaning which is a really nice touch.. Our children did not go to the kids club and we didn't see any entertainment that was on every night. they did watch the movie night a few times and the movies were very appropriate for my children ages. The buffet restaurant had a good choice of food every time that we went.. We only went in the buffet restaurant 3 times as we did go to the Fisherman's Restaurant which was fab.. and we did celebrate my sons birthday in the Italian restaurant which they kindly organise a cake once they found out it was my Sons birthday, the lobster which is an extra was fabulous as was the waiters. A must is the night snorkelling which we did one night with the dive centre which was fabulous fun. Every night we would get a lift back to our room on the golf buggy as my Son seemed to like this and the gentleman was always very obliging.. The only one suggestion I would make is that when you visit Hollywood, markets, Soho or the surrounding area book your transport through the hotel for your taxi as they are very reliable maybe a little more expensive, but we didn't do that the first time we went out and on the way back we had gone out with another family who had a very unpleasant experience with the taxi man (reversing up the dual carriage way as he was going the wrong way for our hotel) so take the taxi name and ring him when you are ready to return and will come to collect you. I don't have a bad word to say about this Hotel apart from the Russians but if you ignore them they certainly wont spoil your holiday. The beaches are fabulous one disappointment we do have is that I would of liked to of eaten in the Sea breeze restaurant over looking the red sea as we were recommended the restaurant but unfortunately it was closed throughout our stay.... A big high light for us as a family is that we travelled to Cairo to see the Pyramids which was just an awesome way to finish our holiday...Loved everything about the hotel and was gutted our holiday came to an end definitely recommend this hotel to families, couples and solo's as its an incredible friendly resort. thanks again for a amazing holiday..More
Amazing hotel and Friendly staff.
I don't normally write a review about our holiday and our hotel but, I thought that our stay at this fantastic hotel deserves a mention. Travelled as Family of four (two adults and two teenagers 13 and 14) and it is was our first time in Sharm , The helpful lady at Thomson booked us two junior suites.. we were apprehensive about the possibility of not having two rooms close to each other but, the great staff at the reception were very accommodating and gave us two adjacent rooms. Our rooms were 2224/2225 and they were within a very short walk to the reception, restaurants and pools, for us it was perfect, big rooms and very clean (Cleaned perfectly daily). We spent most of our holiday in and around the infinite pool and we loved it. The hotel was mainly from Russia and Britain. We feel it is unfair to give credit to a single staff at this hotel.. in our opinion every single person at this hotel from the Taf Taf bus drivers, house keeper, reception staff, restaurant staff, lobby staff, pool attendant, jetty attendant to the hotel's management deserve a mention and a big thank you for making our stay at this fantastic and friendly hotel a fabulous one. I certainly recommend this resort and we will come back to it in the future.More
Best birthday treat ever!
We have just got back from another week at ROBB (our second visit in two months). It was just as good as the first time - if not better! Some of the things people complain about on here make me laugh... Some people just don't know five star when they see it!! Believe me you will definitely not be disappointed with this hotel. We travelled on my birthday, picked up from the airport by the hotel limo service, then were greeted by Egyptian men playing drums and singing me happy birthday in Arabic. We then were taken to our room to find a lovely cake and fresh fruit. We used the shuttle bus during our stay to visit Nama bay which was very easy to organise and very reasonably priced. We love that nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this hotel. For example - one night my dress broke as I was getting ready to go out for dinner. I phoned reception and within 10 minutes housekeeping had brought a sewing kit to our room! No complaints about the food, our favourite was the Italian (we went 4 times throughout the week) and tried various different dishes and were more than happy with them all. We were pleased to see that pizzas have now been added to the all inclusive option too as when we went in June these were an additional cost. The pools are fab, our favourite was the adult only relax pool. The only thing that disappointed us were people breaking the rules and bringing children with them to the pool on one occasion - but this was quickly sorted by the pool staff. The staff are second to none - made us feel right at home from the second we arrived. Far too many to mention but big special thanks to Angie, Wael, Khaled and Eslam for making our stay so enjoyable. Also a huge thankyou to Shehab the general manager for giving us the opportunity to return. Hope to see you all again soon (probably not this year as I think I'm pushing my luck by having three holidays in one year but you never know!!) Thankyou again and keep up the good work!! Jodie and Adam :-) More

Great hotel, Amazing staff !
My husband and I and our 10 year old son stayed from the 13th August - 27th August. We had requested a king size and proper 3rd bed in our deluxe pool view room by email to the hotel and to our delight on entering the room we had been given as requested. We were near the leisure pool as requested also which if you have kids is a great base. This was our first trip to Egypt and it was a very nice surprise. We were concerned about the possible bad behaviour from the Eastern Europeans from other reviews but I have to say they were no problem whatsoever, it was a nice mix of nationalities and no fighting for sun beds because of this, only a few Brits with their Union Jack towels hogged the same beds everyday! We had breakfast at the Fisherman's every morning and the lovely chef cooked our eggs to order, the Bay View had a lovely choice for lunch and it was lovely to sit in an air conditioned environment and for dinner we utilised the A la Carte restaurants, our favourite being the Kebagi. I believe the hotel are currently in the process of building an Indian and Chinese which will give even more choice! The leisure pool food selection was poor, burgers, hot dogs ,fish and chips so if you're vegetarian you will only have salad, rolls and chips. The pasta was available the first week but disappeared the second? The staff are what make the ROBB they are truly wonderful people who made this holiday! We all suffered from the dreaded upset stomach but their concern was most appreciated, the pharmacist on site did the trick but tablets for the 3 of us was Â£30 GBP! If you have a guide on a day trip like we did he stopped at a local pharmacy and bought us a pack of 24 tablets for Â£1 GBP in case it struck again which it did to me on our return home. The hotel hygiene is very good apart from the lobby toilets, the doors were filthy and could do with a thorough clean, we were very careful to follow all recommended procedures but it was just one of those things, the food was hot and well cooked, we drunk bottled water and stayed in the shade when not in the water etc. My only suggestions are please make it compulsory for young children who are not toilet trained to wear swim nappies , we witnessed many babies not wearing anything and this could be an issue relating to upset stomachs also please don't let patrons smoke in the area where the kids films are being shown, we had a guest who kept sitting behind us and lighting up, we couldn't move or we wouldn't have been able to see the movie, the Panorama Terrace is huge and the smokers could be accommodated to the sides? The animation team were lovely and we were asked to participate but if you didn't want to there was no hassle just have a lovely day! The spa ladies and the dive club came round but again no hassle just there if wanted to utilise their services. The ROBB is a lovely hotel,well run and they really do try to make your holiday wonderful, the snorkelling is fantastic, book it you won't be disappointed, would we return - definitely!More
