The Reef Oasis Blue Bay Resort and Spa is an award winner. The hotel scooped a Travellers’ Choice Award in 2010 and was named as a TripAdvisor Top Hotel this year.
You don’t have to look far to see why it impressed the critics. The hotel is set on its own beach, and it’s got a private jetty, which gives you access to some great snorkelling spots.
The list of swimming pools reads like a menu. It includes a relax pool for adults, a dive pool for practicing scuba, and a lagoon pool with water slides. There’s a collection of whirlpool baths, too, some of which look out over the sea.
The hotel’s spa is state of the art and the treatment list includes Ayurvedic massages and Zen-inspired aromatherapy. The dining scene goes that extra mile, too. The restaurants range from a Parisian bistro to an Italian trattoria.

chill out week
Nice hotel, all inclusive. Food good, best restaurant- The Fisherman. Executive suites extras allow breakfast in this restaurant. Room Balcony small though. Relax pool for adults only is lovely. Nothing near hotel building site & rubbish tip only. Beach ok. Staff fantastic. Left with Egyptian stomach bug - not good for flight home! Would we return- NOMore

Once again a fantastic Holiday
Having recently returned from our 5th Visit to the ROBB with my wife and Married daughter , previous years we had been accompanied by Granddaughters too. Each and every time visit has been an experience , the Staff are wonderful and extremely well mannered, the Apartment is immaculate and cleaned daily ( Relax pool 3113 ) same apartment every time. The restaurant Staff especially our personal friends now ( Achmed and Mohammad ) they could never be more efficient and friendly and always with a smile on their faces. My many thanks again for making our stay. The food in the main Restaurant was beautifully presented, and well cooked with so many dishes to select from> The new head Chef continually asked questions whenever we met him either in the main restaurant or at the Poolside Relax area, and was quite clear in requesting honest opinions and no shoes Shining ( His words :) ) Our Apartment 3113 was cleaned to a very high standard by Mohammad and his efforts to amuse us with the towel folding was appreciated. Well Done Mohammad ! The Relax Pool again was our daily recharge of batteries. Once again Little Mohammad ( He left on leave after our second day) was a joy to see as was Ishnasus ( Jack ) !! he was sooo attentive during the day and always with that huge grin :) thanks you. At the poolside !!! Reda again was a delight always smiling and could not have been more friendly ( these guys are almost family now ) Tried the Italian Restaurant too , the food was very good and staff very efficient Our stay this year was that ten days later than norm with the result it coincided with what must have been the Russian National holiday !!!! Well I have never seen so many ill mannered ,no manners ,rude people in my life, Having worked in most parts of the world they take the biscuit. I am amazed that in the main restaurant there was not any serious incidents , what with unsupervised children running around with plates of food, even toing and froing from the different counters picking up food , then putting items back !!. If there had to be a down side to our holiday then it was at meals times we did attempt to avoid the main RUSH. The New Manager Shebab certainly circulated and did a great job around the Reception area and Piano Bar ( we like that ) The Road Runner ( hehehe ) little Fady and Michelle did a tremendous job in that area, again dodging past children running around. I am quite amazed at some of the negative comments , were they staying at the same place as me ? All in all once again we had a tremendous break away , fantastic weather , fantastic accommodation, lovely food ( Put on nearly a damned half stone !! which I am working off at the moment. Brilliant staff Beautiful well kept gardens, did the circuit twice every morning along with my daughter. The gardeners and Circuit Bus Driver never failed to say good morning or to wave.. Just a memory now but a very happy one :) Many Thanks again to all at the ROBB Brian - June and LindseyMore

Great Place to lose Weight
Would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to shed a few pounds because believe me it works. We have now been back 3 weeks and we are both still extremely unwell. My GP has referred me to the hospital for further tests as he believes I have picked up a bug from poor hygiene standards. Not a five star hotel we stayed from the 20th March to 27th worst holiday I have ever had wife was ill due to brown water also cut toe on broken tile air condition blew out dust sewage kept coming back up toilet Actual hotel is nice with beautiful gardens. There is nothing to do beyond the fortified gates unless you want to get a taxi. Staff are your best friends until you stop tipping. They may look after their regular customers but as a 1st time visitor they totally ignore you. Not a pleasurable experience at all, food is awful and the same repetitive food is rolled out daily. the floor in the restaurant was dirty, very busy, loud and queues at every turn. Thank god we went out twice for dinner , otherwise we would starve. and to top it off they had the nerve to ask if we wanted to come back would not go back if you paid me.More

Wonderful hospitality & amazing snorkelling
We have stayed at ROBB for the New Year break for 3 years running (2012-2014) and have always had a fabulous time. The family rooms are like a mini-suite (beds are very comfy and main room is very spacious) and are a great option if you have young children. The grounds are lovely and well maintained, the food is good, the public areas (especially the loos) are kept clean. The spa provides an excellent range of massages, and the view 'due south' down the red sea from the infinity pool is stunning (as is the sunset viewed from the same area). The beach is large and kept spotless by the hard working beach staff. What really makes this hotel special for us is two things: 1. The wonderful hospitality of the staff. On our second and third visits we were recognised instantly by our favourite waiter (Ayman) the first time we walked into the main restaurant and were royally welcomed back. Also, our son has a very restricted diet, but the restaurant managers (Ehab and Rada) just take care of this in the most "no problem" way you can imagine and arrange for the chefs to cook him something else to order. Not only that, but they do so simply because they want to please (it is hard to get them to accept a tip at the end, although we insist as they truly deserve it). 2. The awesome snorkelling that is right on the doorstep. Simply take ten steps along the jetty down at the beach and jump into God's aquarium. This last time there were 4 lionfish hunting right by the jetty and we saw huge Napoleon fish twice. These are amazing creatures to see in their natural habitat. All the fish are simply stunning and you can pass several hours just floating and watching them on the reef. We always feel very safe - the hotel are confident enough about who is in the hotel grounds to not require guests to wear a wristband for all-inclusive purposes. Other things being equal we plan to stay at ROBB many more times - the only problem being that Thomson have hiked their prices for NY 2015 by a huge amount (incl by £300 pp in the last 12 weeks alone!), which is very frustrating indeed; it turns a good value holiday into an very expensive one :-(More

On our last day I would just like to say as a repeat guest(Wife 15 visits- me slightly less) what a tremendous stay (03-19 April) we’ve had and give a vote of confidence in the new manager, Shehab , long time number two at the hotel and now thrust into the bosses chair. “Nothing will change” He told us. But there have been changes. For one thing the management cocktail party has been re-introduced. and on the night we attended was a very animated affair. It’s where you go if you have an issue, a question, an idea , or simply want to find things out. Not unlike speed dating various department managers sit down and introduce themselves for a quick chat before moving on . What’s new? Plans to extend and improve wi-fi in public areas (runway- Relax pool).Ditto live night time entertainment with several singers auditioning over successive nights during our stay.(again Relax, Runway).More things for kids and teens to do; the popcorn machine has been fixed and there are plans for movie nights. During our stay our son completed the PADI open water course, and we we got to do something called ‘the backstairs tour’.About three visits ago someone said to us: “You should see underneath, it’s like an underground city.Every day 2000 beach towels, even more room towels ,bed linen and staff uniforms are washed dried and ironed in the laundry. They have machines that take 110 kg loads! All of the Bread is baked in the on site bakery fresh for every meal.Each of the restaurants has it’s own kitchen- a pastry-, there’s a separate butchers, and freeze rooms that are big enough to walk in.There are managers offices, an accounts department, staff canteens.And then there’s the stores, the food, the engineering department where they fix things.The surface bar where all the drinks orders for the restaurants are made up…..” This time they actually took us.They even had a joke staff name badge made up for my wife along with chefs hats for hygiene. We found It to be immaculately clean with the floors being washed on a continual basis, separate cold rooms for things like chicken, all foods clearly labeled, covered, and dated and kept on separate shelves. Even a separate area solely for the cleaning of vegetables.From here different doors lead you out into different unexpected restaurants,and my guess’ were mostly wrong We came away with the impression that Shehab’s ROBB wants us to come back as repeat guests and went the extra mile for us -just as John used to- to make sure that we do.If you agree press like.More
