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 infinity pool is designed to help you relax. With loungers and parasols dotted along the two sides and offers stunning views over the beach and to sea.
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.
These spacious deluxe double rooms come with a balcony or terrace where you can enjoy the views of the pool. They also have a satellite TV and air-conditioning. These sleep 3 with 1 child bed. Your room will also come with VIP extras - these include early check-in and late check-out at the VIP desk, a fruit basket in your room on arrival, a free laundry bag once per week, upgraded toiletries - replenished as used - and a bathrobe and slippers. You'll also have a kettle, tea, coffee and milk renewed daily - plus free water and soft drinks in the minibar on arrival. You can also look forward to a VIP cocktail with the manager and the use of a special outlet for breakfast.

Forgive the lateness for this my review is from our stay at the Reef Oasis last April. What a wonderful stay we had at this resort! It has the most beautifully maintained grounds and rooms with polite and friendly staff working tirelessly to keep it looking like a 5 star resort. The food was excellent. The bread was heavenly and there was always plenty of choice at the buffet. We enjoyed breakfast every day with delicious poached eggs, waffles and omelette. The chefs are very accommodating and how they work so efficiently to manage the long queues in such heat is a miracle.
The Italian restaurant was excellent. I really enjoyed my dish and my desert I paid extra for lobster at the Fishermen's restaurant which was well worth the subsidy. I was disappointed that we couldn't book into the French restaurant as it was a main pull for us to this hotel but I blame our travel company for not making it clearer that Al a Cartes are on a limited basis. We booked as soon as we arrived and couldn't get more than two reservations for a seven night stay.
The infinity pool and Jacuzzis were beautiful to look at as was the quiet pool which we spent a lot of our time at but we couldn't spend much time in the pools as the water was very cold...I've swam in the North Sea and am no stranger to cold water but found the pool temp far too chilly for a resort in Egypt. I preferred swimming in the sea for this reason. I suspect it was also why there were very few adults using the pool during our stay. Children did but they seem immune!
The views over the Red Sea were to die for and it really was a very romantic, special and memorable trip which was made better by the fantastic, warm and accommodating staff. Having the shops on site is very convenient as I needed a pharmacy due to forgetting my medication. To be able to get this without a prescription really saved my holiday so I was very grateful to the pharmacist and the resort.
The rooms were spacious and well cleaned each day with the best being made up with towel art and flowers for us. We didn't tip each day but a bigger sum on the last day which was clearly a first timers error but the staff treated us like royalty regardless. They are such a credit to this hotel. From the gardeners to the towel attendants and the waiters and barmen. All fantastic and deserve tips as they work extremely hard.
We went on one excursion booked through Thomson. The VIP boat and snorkeling experience to Tirana island. We felt this was exceptional value for money at about Â£40 each. We had three snorkel stops and swam with beautiful fish and jellies and an on board BBC. We got on the boat first and were lucky enough to get the best spot on the mattress at the front of the boat overlooking the ocean. It was very hot but the staff kept us topped up with soft drinks. (Alcohol is not allowed on the Red Sea). There was also an on board BBC of fresh fish, prawns and chicken with salad rice and potatoes all included in the price. I would really recommend this excursion. As it was a VIP trip they only allowed about 20 people on the boat and it was adults only although a couple of older teens did come from another hotel with their mum but they were very mature and well behaved.
One evening we took a taxi to Old Market which was a lot of fun! Prepare to be harassed by every shop keeper but it was all part of the experience and we bought some great gifts here. Be prepared that if you have your picture taken on the camels they'll walk you around the square and try and make you pay ridiculous amounts of money! Agree a price before you get on!
All in all this was exceptional value and almost a five star experience (4.9) with just a few things holding it back:
-no WiFi in rooms and in the lobby it was very slow and often didn't work.
-very cold pools
-couldn't try the French restaurant and could only book 2 Al a cartes.
Everything else five stars. I'd visit again in a heartbeat. I felt very safe and cared for at the ROBB. Thanks for the memories!
Perfect Holiday - Amazing Hotel - Highly recommended
We returned to ROBB for a wonderful two weeks in September - We were a party of 4 - me, husband, son and girlfriend - and had a regular family room which is in fact two separate bedrooms, two bathrooms and a hall - perfect. . As returning customers we were treated like royalty - a welcome back cake, treats all fortnight but most of all and what makes this place so special is the staff - front of house/bar/restaurant - everybody! Special mention to Angie, Ahmed and Jack and the bar staff at the sunset and relax pool. The variety of pools, bars and restaurants suit us perfectly. The hotel reef is as good as anywhere in Sharm and we used the hotel dive club which again we couldn't fault. Almost all the fellow guests we spoke to were returning customers, which really speaks for itself.
What has happened since with flights being withdrawn is devastating - thoughts to all the lovely friends we have made there. The ROBB has become like a second home to us and we will be back as soon as it is possible - this hotel is perfect for us and we would very strongly recommend it! Thanks to everyone.More
Best Holiday Ever !! âï¸âï¸
All I can say is Fab-u-Lous !!
Had an amazing time there with my girlfriend in late October-Early November !!
I cannot find a single fault in this place, & will definitely be goiing back there to this hotel again ! ( Something, I very rarely do )
The food was amazing in ALL the restaurant's, & nothing was too much trouble for the waiter's if you ever needed anything !
A choice of 3 Huge pool's, all fabulous, but we chose the Relax pool most days, as we had no children with us, the pool Staff, Mini Mo, Mahmoud, & Ahmed were all lovely people, who supplied us with Coctail's, Cold Flannels, & anything you needed, with a huge Smile ! Lovely people !!
We also upgraded the last 2 days of our holiday, to the "Honeymoon Suite" which is absolutely out if this world !! ( I can highly recommend it )
All in all, we both had a fantastic time, & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves !
Thanks again guys, you will definitely be seeing us again real soon !!
Steve & Jo.

ROBB has definitely become our 2nd home !!
It the 2nd time in a row to spend my wedding anniversary vacation in the amazing ROBB.
Everything was really perfect, the room was clean, spacious and so comfortable as usual.
Again we were dazzled by one of the nicest spots for snorkeling and diving in Sharm El Sheikh. We enjoyed and never get bored of going to snorkeling every morning. Irresistible view at "Infinity Pool" especially during the sunset.
Although there were not much varieties of food menu in the 3 meals, but the quality of food was very good and tasty. Can't wait to be back there on our next vacation !More
G_Samir, Cairo, Egypt
Recently returned from Sharm el sheikh
The hotel was located by some of the best views you could wish for and all the areas around the pools and gardens were well maintained and spotlessly clean
The staff throughout the hotel were polite could not do enough to make sure you had the best of holidays
The beach area was first class as was the snorkeling with easy access from the pontoon
The Thompson Rep's were very helpful and professional in dealing with the difficult situation in Sharm
Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a sun and beach holidayMore
