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.
Buffet breakfast and dinner in the main restaurant. Late breakfast, lunch and dinner at the 24-hour Caribbean Bar. Two à la carte restaurants.
Hot and soft drinks served by the glass in all bars. Locally produced alcohol served by the glass. Wine served with dinner only.
Curving elegantly around the beach side of the resort, the heated infinity pool is designed to help you relax. With loungers and parasols dotted along the 2 sides and offers stunning views over the beach and to sea.
Your choice of meat or fish is barbecued to order and then you have a choice of salad and meze to accompany it. There's also a special menu just for little ones. The dress code here requires men to wear long trousers to dinner.
If you're not quite relaxed enough after a few days of sunbathing then the spa offers a steam room, sauna and 12 types of massage. If you want to keep up your fitness regime whilst away the wellness centre has a fully-equipped gym with treadmill, bikes and step and rowing machines.
We have just spent two weeks at reef oasis, we have returned here 5 times, so it's obviously doing something right..... We always enjoy ourselves as the staff are outstanding nothing is too much trouble for them. A special thank you to esham from the beach bar, very attentive and friendly. The waitress from the sports bar where we spent our evenings were so good too.
Chef ramond was so very helpful and cooked us a special dish, absolutely delicious, thank you. Until the next time.............More

Blue bay heaven
better late then never but I stayed in here in January 14,
From the moment I arrived this felt like a perfect holiday destination for me, yes you need to take a taxi out to go anywhere but really do you need to, as this hotel catered perefectly for me for my week's holiday, every member of staff was extremely attentive to make this holiday just right.
And no wristbands!
Having done 5* in Marrakech recently and despite this costing a few hundred pounds more, I have booked to go back to ROBB next week, I can't wait.More

Fabulous hotel. Hope to return next year
This was our first time to Blue Bay. My wife and I were really impressed with the whole experience. The food, the cleanliness and the friendly staff all made for a very enjoyable, relaxing holiday. We need to mention a few of the staff who were exceptional. Farhat in the Sea Breeze restaurant and kababgi, Massoud (our friend from reef oasis beach resort) who is now bar manager, Mohamed and Asma from the Fishermens restaurant, Eslam from round the infinity pool and Ani from the Spa.More
Still So Ill
I arrived at the hotel on the night of the 17th October 2014, first of all they put us in a room with twin beds and a put me up bed, (we had upgraded on booking so that we had three proper single beds), we went to reception and with no arguement they gave us the room we were entitled to but not until 2pm the following day as it was not ready and although they said they would move us at 10am we waited (but kept calling reception) for 4 hours so we kinda missed our first day.
The staff were friendly and very attentive and the food although samey was good but by Sunday, so my second day, we were all ill. Cut the long story I am still ill even though Ive been back in England 4 days and I spent the whole holiday not straying far from the room, there were several other people in the same position but everyone seemed to accept that that was Egypt for you. I spent quite a bit of money on antibiotics and other remedies in the hotel Chemist but they made me feel sick.
On our last day I had to ask to stay in the room after check out because I was so ill and although I spoke to the manager regarding why I needed the room (lets not go there lol) I was still charged for the room. We booked the room until 6pm but at 5pm they said they had to clean it for new arrivals and the cleaner waited outside with the door open as we were not quite ready. Then a porter turned up and walked straight in, grabbed the cases which were packed and went off to the golf buggy with them then returned to hurry us up with the last case which we couldnt close as it had been damaged at the airport, it was quite shocking really as we asked him to go but he would not and repeated that we must leave....we paid until 6pm!!!!
When you arrive and throughout your stay the staff are fantastic but dont tip until right until the end, I made the mistake of tipping the day before and all the attentiveness ceased!!!
One last point, the all inclusive drinks are awful, my partner bought branded in the end which are approx Â£6-Â£9 each.More

Another amazing holiday
Arrived to the usual warm welcome from reception staff, Fady our favourite barman, duty manager, Angie and Sam from Guest Relations. Check in was speedy and went straight down to dinner to be greeted by Ahmed and Mohamed Beshr. Food was good, lots of variety, but desserts are my favourite with some mango ice cream from the pancake chef. We had a first floor room with a great view, bottles of water in hallway and spotless with a Welcome Home cake, fruit and cookies. The staff really know how to look after returning guests.
We set up home at the infinity pool as we can watch life go by with dive boats and people coming and going down to the beach. We were greeted by Eslam and Ali at the towel hut. Towel cards are now issued which is a great idea as towels were disappearing and not being returned. If you lose a card its a 100le cost to have a new one. Some people were still out putting towels on beds at 5am and disappearing for hours but not much you can do about it. As its close to half term, it was quite busy but still had a good feel to the place and didnt feel packed. New sunbeds have arrived so theres lots more to choose from.
Food was lovely. lots of choice in the buffet. Chef Michael makes delicious food on asian night. Spring rolls are lovely, hes very talented. El Dente staff and food as usual was really good. Kebabgi food was delicious and could have quite easily have just eaten the starters and not the main course !
Our room boy was not intrusive at all. I think his name was Ahmed, but he went on holiday the day before we left. He came to the room every evening with water and to check we were happy with his service. Cant fault him at all.
We used the â¬15 laundry service twice, clothes came back perfect. Will definitely use it again. Such a good idea.
My son used the Dive Club and completed his PADI course. The staff there are really good and looked after him so well. We now have some new friends.
The hotel has introduced some good new ideas with movie nights, the Egyptian kids entertainers are really good fun and not over the top trying to pull you into activities. Wati from the Spa popped round, she's such a good laugh and again, puts no pressure on you. The services they offer are really good and are not expensive.
The taf taf drivers are really good fun and stop for you wherever you are. It runs until late in the evening or you can take a golf cart back to your room if you need one.
Met Mr Shehab passing through reception, hes lovely, very pleasant and easy to talk to and wanted to make sure we didnt have any issues that needed dealing with. The staff seem alot happier now than a couple of years ago. Wherever you are in resort everyone, from gardeners, security to management, says hello and asks if you are having a good day.
It would be so hard to go anywhere else now. Some of the staff are now extended family to us and its emotional having to say goodbye to them all.
Theres too many to thank, but our main thanks go to Sam Adel, Angie, Mohamed Beshr, our room boy, All of the pool boys, Mohamed Metwally and Shady, Fady and Jamaica, Boys at Horizon bar and Husainy. Theres too many others to mention who all work so hard to make our holiday what it is every time. Can't wait to be back again xxMore
