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.
Enhanced with sea views and a large balcony, these spacious honeymoon suites are presented with a touch of luxury. Features include a lounge, satellite TV and air-conditioning. 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.

Superservice, great diving facility with excellent crew/instructors
Third time here and as satisfying as the previous visits. Besides the restaurants, the beautiful beach and coral coast, you will find super friendly staff, a great diving school and a lovely Spa. A couple of weeks in the ROBB will revitalize you and you will be fully ready to dive back into your hectic world....More

In truth, my visit was about 5 years ago and this place may well have improved since then, although looking at the negative reviews of late, I'm not so sure it has.
After check in out cases were chucked onto a golf cart by a pervy porter who told us to hop on. He was driving so wrecklessly that my case went for a burton as he hurtled round a corner and then preceded to just look at me as if to say 'well, go get it then'.
Once we got to the "sea view" room (sea view that I'd paid extra for and was actually a tiny slither that could be mistaken for an ocean in the distance, between some trees), the porter put the suitcases down then put his feet together, similar to an army stance and just stood waiting for a tip which presumably was for the race track thrill seeking ride from the reception!
Food wasn't the best (gave me a bad stomach - and I have an iron stomach!).
Half the staff were pleasant, the other half were pervy and fairly rude (the tour guide continued to text my then girlfriend who I can only assume loved the attention anyway!)
In short, I wasn't impressed and didn't think it was good value for money. I won't be returning to see if the sea turned up yet.More
This was the most incredible hotel that I have ever stayed at. My best friend and I stayed in an upgraded twin room overlooking the relax pool, and it was just beautiful.
The room was always very clean and we were always left with fresh bottles of water daily. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. We had originally been appointed a double room by the children's/family pool, which was gorgeous, but when the check in staff saw that we were two young women they happily relocated us to a twin, and the room we had was even more phenomenal.
During our stay we did suffer with mosquitoes, but the staff being as delightful as they were sprayed our room for us and provided us with a plug in at no extra charge. I would recommend tipping the bar/ front of house staff at the beginning of your stay we had been given the same advice and did so following this we never had to wait for a drink or carry a bag, the staff even insisted on taking us from the lobby to our room on the golf buggys!
By the second week of our stay Jack, the bar man at the relax pool, would just appear with 'special cocktails' for us and he knew our drinks order so would have them appear without us even ordering. He was great. I would recommend the upgraded rooms as with it you get breakfast at the fishermans restaurant which was delicious with freshly squeezed orange juice too, so worth it! You also get automatic late checkout if you ask for it. We had an evening flight so checking out at 6pm rather than 12 was great! Other perks were things like discounts on spa treatments and additional restaurant charges. The food in the hotel was great the le romantique restaurant and Italian were my favourites. In the main buffet restaurant service was sometimes a bit slow but that was understandable given that it was peak season.
The hotel itself is stunning! The drive and the lobby are just outstanding! When we went out on excursions via coach the friends we made had clear hotel envy! It was just beautiful. I felt so safe, it was peaceful and relaxing with plenty to do if you wanted to, if you didn't it was also perfectly acceptable to bask in the melting sunshine. The trip to see the pyramids was a little pricey, we couldn't afford it so if you do wasn't to go and see them make sure you budget for it before you go, I will be next time! The VIP cruise was great value for money though and a great day out so I would definitely recommend going on that.
I could go on, there's just so much to say about this wonderful hotel. The staff do a fab job, everyone is so welcoming and friendly, it is just the most incredible place I have ever been to. I literally couldn't fault it, I wholeheartedly recommend it and I would go back in a heartbeat.More

It was the second time here and after 6 years it was just as nice. The staff are amazing , who can not do enough. The whole place is very clean and even after a massive storm, they worked all night to make the place look good for the morning. The food is good , but nothing fantastic. But there is always something for everyone. The beach is great and the reef at the end of a small jetty is something out of this world. It have one of the best parts of the reef along this coast. In the end , its great value. More
We hadn't been to Sharm before and were a little apprehensive, however we received some excellent travel advice and tips which were so useful. We arrived at night so could not appreciate just how beautiful our Hotel and its surroundings were. This Hotel comprises of a huge complex including four restaurants, four/five pools, many bars/pubs, shops, easy access to its own beach, evening entertainment, so many things to do, you could never be bored.
The staff were lovely! Very kind and helpful, a little cheeky and very charming. You are advised to tip in American Dollars, a few dollars here and there is so worth it for the service you receive!
There is the opportunity to go on diving trips, which we did for one day, my partner is a keen diver and I snorkel, the trip catered to both of us. However what surprised us the most, was just how fabulous and spellbinding the snorkelling was just from the beach of our hotel!! So worth taking your own snorkelling gear with you. I would say that the diving was very expensive, perhaps our only complaint!
Our room was spacious and clean, each morning the housekeeper left beautiful flower and towel arrangements on our bed - thank you Sir! Beds were comfortable and the shower was good.
Food was fantastic, the beach restaurant was my favourite with such beautiful views. We ate in each of the restaurants, apart from the French as this was closed during our stay. There was some construction work taking place for a "Grill" type restaurant, which we were very sad to have missed, perhaps next time...
Such a fabulous Hotel, we would highly recommend!
