“Excellent - again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

My wife and I visited the Oberoi in July together with our two sons, daughter-in-law and grandson (18months). We had a fabulous time and all agree that the Oberoi is without a doubt the best hotel on the Red Sea. Staff are excellent and couldn't do enough to help especially when it came to looking after the needs of our grandson. Reception found our lost jacket within minutes! Food is really good with the Indian restaurant being the best.
Suites are immaculate and extremely comfortable. We had 408 very close to the beach and a 7 minute pleasant walk to the restaurant. Beach is very clean and beach attendants bring water, cold towels, juices and fruits all day and all complimentary.
Of course the Oberoi is more expensive than other hotels but its certainly worth it.

My wife & I stayed for a week ... It was a great choice - excellent suite, service, & facility. Perfect relaxing hotel for any couples. The suite pool give you all the privacy you need.The hotel staff is very friendly. The in-suite room food is good.

Room Tip: The private pool suites should be your first choice

We stayed here for a week at the end April/early May. It was a wonderful choice - beautiful villa, great service, extremely good food. In fact, just about everything you could want for a relaxing break in the sun. We ate in the main restaurant/courtyard most nights and the food and service were superb. The standard of food was far better than expected and the service lived up to that level too. We also tried the Indian restaurant and the Beach Pavilion - both very good but we just loved the courtyard restaurant. I had three trips to the spa and each one was wonderfully relaxing with professional and expert staff. However, the crowning glory was our room attendant who not only kept our villa beautifully clean, well stocked and cared for but also made fabulous towel sculptures - a monkey, heart, crocodile and swan - all brilliant. We will definitely be back - and may splash out on a private pool villa next time - and would also recommend here to anyone, no matter how high their standards. The Oberoi, Sahl Hasheesh can cope with anyone's expectations. PS: I don't work for them!

I took my wife and 2 children to this beautiful haven for a week, I can say that this was the most amazing holiday we had in years, the weather was great, the staff were so attentive to our needs, every day they would make fun things in the suite for the kids in the room like a crocodile made from towels, they would give them balloons! The food in this hotel is impecable their buffet breakfast was delicious also you can order from their al carte menu mouthwatering waffles, pancakes with maple syrup, the Egyptian breakfast consisting of foul and falafel was amazing. The Indian restaurant was also a big hit with my wife who loves Indian food . All the staff in this hotel are very friendly and go out of their way to please us. My daughter fell ill during the trip with a high fever they got her a doctor straight away and even brought her the medications. the spa in the hotel is great, with all the therapies done by professional Thai therapists. The beach is beautiful but you must be careful and wear crocs or Sea shoes which are available on the beach for you to wear whilst swimming. Everyday they have a fun program set for the hotel guests one day there was a movie night, another was an Indian cooking class, and there was also a massage class which was extremely fun, as well as sand bottle art , my son really enjoyed that ! So I would definitely recommend this hotel ( Hurghada and sahl hasheesh are pretty safe, don't be afraid to visit this beautiful part of Egypt )

My husband and I just spent the most relaxing vacation at the charming Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh. It has been our favorite get-away for the past 12 years not only for its breathtaking scenery, remarkable architecture, luxurious service but most importantly for the amazing staff extending the most professional attentive personalized service. We were pampered and yet enjoyed a delightful privacy throughout our stay. We enjoyed the beautiful weather sunny breathy daytime and clear starry sky at night. The exquisite food served at all outlets was purely the topping of our stay. Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh offers beyond doubt the exclusive heavenly getaway in Egypt.

Room Tip: All suites are amazing but we had the Grand Suite to enjoy the private pool:)

We had the pleasure to stay here for two weeks and quickly realized why it’s one of the best hotels of Egypt.
We stayed in the entry level suite, which was fitted in a colonial style and more than adequate: bedroom with a huge bed and a tv+dvd player, walkin closet with safe, bathroom with rain shower/sunken bath and daylight provided by a glass wall to a courtyard so nobody can look in, living area with a second tv, spacious outside area with 2 loungers and a 4 seat dinner table. Daily fresh fruit and plenty of water for drinking and making coffee/thea. So I can say for certain that any room will please even the most experienced traveller. Only remark on the room: there is not an easy accessible/unused power socket for electronic devices near the bed or tables.
The grounds of the hotel are well looked after, even the whole 800m beach is swiped to perfection every day! The pool area was our favourite, although you get fresh water, sun block and wipes to clean your hands at both the beach/pool. The pool is cooled, so even with 42 degrees it provided a refreshing experience.
Every day there is a different activity. We liked the movie night on the beach (be more precise in explaining where it is as a lot of people are not familiar with the term ‘lower beach’) and the towel folding art was nice to practice. If you feel like movie at your suite, there are hundreds of dvd’s to rent for free at the reception. Still bored? Use the wifi in your suite/reception/even next to the pool!
The food was great. I ate cold vegetables and had ice cubes the whole holiday, no issues whatsoever… The menu at lunch/main restaurant rotate, so you will see the same menu maximum twice a week. There are plenty of asian infused options along with classic western choices. The food prices are at a western European standard. Alcohol is on the pricy side, although the Egyptian (sprinkling) wines and beers are highly recommend. Cocktails are not of high enough quality for the price they are and are inconsistent of taste. Maybe send the bartenders on a small cocktail making course to easily avoid this.
The staff will try to please every demand, like arranging transfers and getting information. Also the chef came by personally to inform of the slightly longer waiting time for a toffee-fondant dessert that was not on the today’s menu, but we loved so much and requested!
We visited a nearby 5star hotel with some water slides. Well, if that was a 5star, Oberoi deserves 8! Don’t get fooled by the ratings in Egypt, read the reviews and look at the pictures.

Room Tip: Any room is of high quality and provides plenty of space. A room near the reception provides easy pi...
