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.

3rd FANTASTIC VISIT
There's not a lot to add to my previous review of this hotel--it's brilliant. We have been to Sharm 19 times and have stayed in several hotels including the Sensatori and Hiliday Village. The Reef Oasis is TOP CLASS. There has been a recent change of management and this has caused some degree of disruption but all areas still operate to the highest standard. The gardens are beautiful, the food is excellent with plenty of choice, both in the buffet and a la carte restaurants. the rooms are kept clean and tidy and are spacious. The greatest resource is the staff--they are all friendly, hard working and polite I am staggered at some of the negative comments from other reviewers-PLEASE IGNORE THEM for overall value - you will not get a better deal in sharm--the hotel has something for everyone. best features--the infinity pool is a delight, the snorkelling outstanding, gym is top class with amazing views just go and check it out for yourself....More

Amazing 7th Visit...Another Wonderful Holiday...
We have stayed here before and were so happy at the resort and the service that we have been back several times. This visit did not disapoint, an amazing two weeks relaxing in the sun being superbly looked after. It is worth upgrading and we had suite 3106 which was near the adult relax pool and near to all the facilities. The grounds are spotless and so was our room, cleaned everyday to a very high standard by Mahsoud. We had a small problem with the sink leaking and this was rectified within 15 mins. All the staff are very friendly and professional, always smiling and clearly taking pride in their jobs. We were very impressed by the staff at the relax pool, Mohammed,Isnasus,Said and Ragb, they could not do enough for all guests and the bar was keep spotless, It was a nice touch to have real glasses for drinks at the bar only.Keep this new idea, The relax pool was at it sounds, relaxing,.! No loud music, just plenty of sunbeds for chilling out, Reda the pool buy smiled all day and even offered cold flannels and sunglasses cleaning, all without having to get up from your sun bed, these little touches made it really special, Twice a week there is a cocktail evening at the relax bar, it was not well advertised so when we went it was a little queit, but a great choice of cocktails, some of which are payable. The standards are 5* across the hotel, We ate in all the restaurants and the all the food was hot, fresh and delicious. Special mention to Bolas the manager in the Fishermans Restaurant and his staff ,Tariq, Mayada and so many others. we were made to feel very welcome and were looked after everyday for breakfast, and in the evening when we had booked in for dinner, Bolas ran the restaurant very smoothly and his staff were all friendly, the chefs Mohammed and Ibrahim were were skilled and from breakfast to dinner, their food was wonderful,and spoke to the guests in such a friendly way. The restaurants are are easily booked at guest relations, plan ahead though as they do get booked up. The Al Dente Italian restaurant was atmospheric and great food, Reda the manager was so welcoming and all his staff were excellent. Every meal here was so enjoyable. Do try the Kebagi outdoor restaurant, the fresh made flatbreads here were so delicious,Zachariah the manager was very friendly and looks after all your needs. We had a beautiful meal in the French Romantique restaurant, this is extra but was an special night, We have always enjoyed our meals here but noticed this time they were even better no doubt to the new executive european chef Raimumd, who visits all the restaurants and takes times to speak to the guests. He is very open to ideas and cleary cares passionately about what he does. There is so much choice of food, you will not starve, the hygiene levels are first class, we eat the salads, ice, meats well everything, we have not been ill not seen any signs of uncleanliness, whilst there we saw the health inspector who does turn up unannounced. Alot of illnesses can be caused by dehydraytion, so keep up your water intake. Special thanks to Magdy and Khalid ,food and beverage managers, who we saw daily checking that standards stay high and were so approchable and friendly, they treated all the guests with a smile and handshake, They made us feel very welcomed. There is a gym that all guests can use and Lotfy the gym instructor was very professional and really looked everyone. He really knew his stuff and just like everywhere else, the gym was spotless. The Spa is next to the gym and the treatments are fantastic, same prices as in england. the staff here were lovely and i would have gone everyday..! In reception this is the only place for wi-fi and to be honest its slow, look into hiring a portable wifi box from england, they will meet you at thye hotels gate with it, I think the hotel should look into the line of business themselves, wi fi is a must nowadays. There is waiter sevice in the reception and we were looked after wonderfully by Fady, he was always smilng and attentive. We have visited the hotel several times and the standards have not dropped, hence why we book again, The ROBB has never let us down and we will definitely will be back, it feels like a second home to us. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so special... Phil and Xanthe...More

Once again a fabulous holiday
Holiday 27/3-10/4 8th time and looking forward to the 9th time. What can you say about this hotel that hasn't been said before. It ticks all the boxes for us from the moment we stepped off the coach to the time we had to leave everything was just so special. All departments are run to the highest of standards and the management are always around to answer any questions the quests my have and openly encourage feed back, come on how many of the British hotels would be brave enough to do that.,We have travelled since 1970 and have stayed in lots and lots of hotels so we have a benchmark to work from. The Food. Food is always a thing that people judge a hotel on. Bay View Restaurant The first week the food was a bit different but after talking to the chef (not only ourselves but others too) the food improved and some of the meats were served separately to the sauces giving you the choice. This is a British thing but we have to remember there are Russians at the hotel too and their requirements also have to be met. The breakfast were really good with eggs being cooked to order also plenty of other food on offer. The lunches were very good. Al Dente Italian Restaurant Manager Mr Reda and his team do a great job we had 4 very leisurely meals and during 2 of them the owners dined but this made no difference, the guests were all treated the same (Well Done). We had Ali (Farahat until he moved to the Kebabgi) and his team looking after us and they were excellant they manage to make you feel special. We wish men would take the trouble to read the booking ticket before presenting themselves at the door in shorts this would prevent them being refused entry as only long trousers are allowed in the a la carte restaurants. We saw one families evening ruined because the gentleman refused to come back to the restaurant only to see him the next night in the Bay View in jeans, whats that all about People? Fishermans Restauarnt Twice made very welcome by Mr Bolas and his team, the meal was cooked to perfection just how we wanted it. We used the bar alongside the fishermans during the day for our drinks , Hady again excelled himself for 12 day providing our drinks, Mohammed took over when Hady went on vacation and he also was very good. Kebabgi Restaurant Used it once very good. Fafahat and his colleague took the trouble to find out that I didnt like spicy food made sure everything was fine and we had a really nice meal. Front of house staff are very good had a few chats with them when using the Wi fi (not very good but managed to sent emails to the family). Our room was keep very nice ,our towels were changed when we wanted . The bedding was changed daily as far as we were concerned this could have been done less frequently but this is hotel policy so there you go. Entertainment. This did not really bother us, we were quite happy to sit talking and having a drink after our meal, the hotel has started to have live entertainment between the Caribbean and the Pub we enjoyed that. Egypt the country It is a shame that some people have decided not to travel to Sharm and Egypt as we felt very safe there , the people are nicest in the world. Its a pity that people and other countries don't take a look back and see the problems there countries have had , just give then time and support. Last but not least thanks to Messrs Bolas, Feda, Essam,Mohammed,Angie,Khaled , Simon Cowell (nick name sorry don't know your name but you know who you are) and all the staff at ROBB for making our holiday such a good one..More

Good choice for some winter sun
We booked the Blue Bay Reef Oasis for a break in early April and were not at all disappointed. The service was excellent, the rooms very good with comfortable beds and tea and coffee making facilities. The service by the towel staff on the beach and by the pools was excellent and the towels were good quality and plentiful, often given two each. The roof top bar was a perfect place to relax early evening to watch the sun go down over the mountains. The hotel was relatively quiet. The food in the main restaurant was good and again the service excellent. The other restaurants too were excellent. We particularly liked the Egyptian and the Italian. You did have to book the speciality restaurants, but we had no problem and there was no restriction on the amount of times you could book. WiFi was a bit iffy at popular times ie early evening, but it is FREE so no complaints. Would definitely return to this hotel when visiting Sharm again.More
Once again, out of this world!
My husband and I stayed at the ROBB back in October 21013 and once again we couldn't fault a single thing - and it has to be said I am a VERY fussy traveller! I would have reviewed the hotel before now but we have been extremely busy harversing over 350 acres of cauliflower since we got home - during the wettest Winter in the UK for over 300 years! We are about to experience our third trip to this hotel and are vastly looking forward to it. Everyone here is so looking to please. If there is anything that you are unhappy about - all you need to do is let someone know and they will definitely make every efffort too resolve to your satisfaction. We stayed at the hotel twice last year and both times had such a good timew. I have numerous and serious food allergies and intolerances and everyone at the hotel was anxious to make sure that this did not become a problem for me - as it so often has - whilst on holiday. Ehad and Reda deserve a special mention as they went above board to make sure that my special needs were served - but it has to be said everyone within the Restaurant understood the problems that I experience when holidaying aboad and that often-times changes needed to be made to what was on offer - without making me feel either difficult or demanding which was much appeciated. The hotel itself is beautiful, the snorkelling is wonderful and everyone is so willing to please that we cannot understand why anyone at all would complain. Last year our very good friends saw our photos on Facebook and aksed where we had stayed and they are about to make their second visit to the hotel with their family as well. The rooms are lovely, the pools are fabulous , the grounds are beautiful and the sea, well what do you say? Fantatic? There will always be people who find fault - but as far as the ROBB is concerned I would ignore them all. The hotel is simply marvellous and we are very glad to have the opportunity to go back!More
