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.

My partner and I have just returned from our first holiday at ROBB. The staff are a credit to the resort with nothing a bother to any of them. Our room was a fair bit away from the reception area but a bus runs regularly so not a problem. Rooms cleaned daily with fresh linen and towels. My only disappointment was the entertainment, it's January so it can be a long night as the sun goes down around 4.30pm however would certainly consider going back here. It would also be good to have wifi all over rather than just a few places.More

My wife and I have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Reef Oasis Blue Bay. We both work full time, we have two teenage children and for the last six years, thanks to very accommodating grandparents, we have made a point of getting away for a weeks winter break together, over and above our family holiday later in the year, in order to recharge the batteries. We have been fortunate to have experienced 5 star all inclusive hotels in various parts of the world, including Australia, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Turkey and most of the Canaries over the past 12 years and our family destination of choice is Turkey, due to the high standards and flight duration. However, this is our second trip to Egypt at this time of the year as a couple and it is excellent. The weather is generally superb and better than the Canaries and Turkey. The ROBB was recommended to me by a friend who had been twice and it did not disappoint. I had read many reviews on trip advisor prior to departure and went with an open mind, as I have read some rediculous reviews for other hotels in the past and I regularly wonder what people expect. I work in the public sector and the post requires me to manage some peoples inability to manage themselves, so I when I read some of the negative reviews, it comes as no surprise to me, although I accept that everybody will have different priorities and expectations when on holiday. My wife and I desired the following; Good weather - achieved. Good accomodation - achieved Good food - achieved Peace and quiet - achieved Friendly and accommodating staff - achieved Value for money - achieved So I will endeavour to expand on each of these criteria as follows; Weather. The weather was great. Between 22 - 28 degrees each day. With the exception of one day, when we experienced hazy cloud up to about noon. Other than that, the skies were clear with bright sunshine and the occasional light breeze. Brilliant. We live in Scotland, so what more can I say. Accomodation. I emailed the hotel when sat in the sky lounge at Edinburgh airport prior to departure, requesting a room overlooking the relax pool. Within 10 minutes I had received a reply confirming an upgrade to a superior room near the relax pool. Rm 3236. It was excellent. Great location in the resort, in a quiet section near the adult only pool and bar area. Tea and coffe making facilities, immaculately clean with a double sized shower and twin queen sized beds that were pushed together creating a huge bed. The mattresses were very comfortable. We didn't go on holiday to watch the tv, so it was never switched on. The room was prepared to a very high standard each and every day with some amazing towel art, one of which was a monkey hanging from the ceiling outside the ensuite. It was well done and quite amusing, as my wife jumped when she opened the door on our return to the room! Be prepared! You are provided with two vouchers on arrival, which each entitle you to six bottles of soft drinks or water from an outlet in the shopping area. Good idea as nothing goes to waste. Two litre bottles of water were also provided each day by cleaner. My wife and I are not big drinkers of alcohol, we certainly did not require any for the room, so that met our expectations. The grounds around the accomodation blocks are lovely, exceptionally well maintained by the gardeners and there are numerous hammocks located throughout the garden areas for use by guests. They were great for lying on and reading if you wanted to experience something other than a lounger at the poolside or on the beach. We took snorkeling equipment and made use of the floating pier to experience the sea life. It was fantastic. Last year we paid a small fortune to go on a VIP cruise which included snorkeling at three locations in the Red Sea. There was no need. The sea life 10 metres from the beach within the cordoned off area provides you with an excellent experience with an abundance of tropical fish and coral formations. It was truly wonderful. Now onto the food. This is a subject that gets quite a variety of criticism. As previously stated, we have had the pleasure of staying a numerous 5 star resorts throughout the world and they all have buffet restaurants and a selection of a la carte restaurants. This is what we do now based on previous experience. Skip breakfast. It is always a faff. Toasters that are wrongly adjusted as everybody plays with the timers. Children running about unsupervised picking up food with their hands and putting it back in the hot plates. Queuing for poached eggs, omelettes etc. You are on holiday. Have a long lay in. Take your time, have a coffe at one of the bars and take in a bit of the sun and relaxed atmosphere. Go to the restaurant when it opens at 1200hrs. Hardly anyone goes at that time because they are still getting over the indulgence of excessive consumption of alcohol from the previous night or the madness of breakfast and they normally traipse in at 1300hrs at the earliest. This means that you experience the food fresh and hot out of the kitchen and no one has had a chance to play with it yet. The waiters are still chilled out and you get first class service and a chance to have a chat with them if you want. We go on holiday to chill, so at every opportunity, we book a la carte for the evening meal, which means that you are given table service, the meals are freshly prepared and you receive personal service from a waiter who is always on hand to top up your water and wine. You also relax and there is no hurry with the meal. You are served each course when it is prepared and you can relax and take in the ambiance of the restaurant. Apart from the first night, when we arrived late, we ate a la carte every night. Twice at the French restaurant, three times at the Italian and once at the Fish. The French and Italian restaurants were fantastic. You can choose a non all inclusive menu option, but please by assured that the set menus on the all inclusive basis are excellent. The fish restaurant was a cross between table and buffet service but was good. Yes there is a wine list that is not all inclusive, but. That is the same the world over and if you were to expect that as part of your all inclusive package, you need to get real. The food and service at this hotel is very good, it is how you plan it. I accept that it is not so easy with young children, been there and done that, but if you plan your day you will reap the rewards. Peace and quiet. If you go as a couple with no children, the relax pool is there to cater for your every need. Jack and Mohammed are there to provide you with cold and hot drinks and there are excellent snacks, filled roles and pastries/cake throughout the day. Staff. The staff are excellent. Every one of them that I came into contact with, without exception, are friendly and accommodating. What I observed, were overbearng, rude and in the evening, drunken guests who do not know how to behave properly. The staff are there to provide a service, not accept unreasonable behaviour and be the brunt of some peoples drunken nonsense. We were seated next to an English family one night in the Italian restaurant. Despite excellent service from the waiter who also served us, not once did they say thank you when he served their meal and replenished their drinks. Manners cost nothing, but they are greatly appreciated when you are on the receiving end. The staff at this hotel work really hard to make people feel welcome and provide them with an excellent service and should be shown the appropriate respect from guests for doing so. They should also be commended with the way they do not react to drunken fools. Tipping is alien to most british people, as it is not part of our daily culture. It is part of the Egyptian culture, but in the hotels, they do not expect it unless they provide a good service. I took some American dollars and generally gave tips of one or two dollars to staff who in my opinion deserved it. I did not feel pressured into doing so, but I can assure you it was deserved. The recipient was always very appreciative of this gesture and the service we received was excellent. Ask yourself this. Would you leave a tip when you go out to a restaurant for a meal with friends or family at home and you receive excellent service? Value for money - Without doubt. If you are a big drinker and demand international branded drinks, you are not going to get this unless you are prepared to pay extra, so buy it at the duty free at the airport on your way out. We had the odd gin and tonic as a night cap as part of the all inclusive package and it was good. Other than that, we had house wine with our evening meals and it was also good. Hope this of benefit to persons who are swithering whether to book this hotel for a winter break based on some other reviews. Is this the best hotel I've ever stayed in? No. Was this a great holiday and did we stay at a very good hotel that catered for our needs. Definitely. Thank you to all the staff for a great service and good memories.More
