Pure relaxation in a beautiful setting. The opulent villa style accommodation, its quiet private beach, attentive staff and tranquil surroundings made this a wonderfully relaxing holiday. We would wholeheartedly recommend this excellent hotel, especially for honeymoon couples looking for a romantic hideaway.
We visited in September 2013 and encountered no trouble in the area at all, indeed everyone was most welcoming and pleased that we had decided to holiday there.
We hope that we will be able to return sometime soon.

Room Tip: All the suites are excellent but the superior deluxe do mean you are nearer the beach, indeed almost...

We have recently returned from a ten night stay at the oberoi, which was a wonderfully relaxing experience. The excellent service and tranquil surroundings mean that it is a great opportunity to unwind and forget the stressors of everyday life. The hotel offers a wide range of activities to partake in, massage classes, cooking demonstrations and even your own cinema on the lower beach, too name but a few. My husband and I enjoyed the use of the spa and gym facilities, having indulged in several treatments, which were fantastic. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to family and friends who we're looking for a luxurious getaway in the sun,with attentive but not intrusive service. Word of note, drinks are very expensive due to taxes but the Egyptian wines are certainly worth sampling. I am also told that the scuba diving is an amazing experience, supported by the 36 pictures of my husband underwater!

I had the good fortune of staying here from the 6th Sept for a week. First off, the hotel complex is simply beautiful. An arrangement of suites running right down to the beach, perfectly manicured lawns and palms of all varieties dotted throughout. The suites were immaculate and spacious and well maintained throughout the day. The staff were amazing, they were friendly ,enthusistic and very helpful. I took the open water dive course and had an instructor (Ahmed) to myself (purely by good luck). The dive centre is run by master divers who have an infectious enthusiasm for diving and sealife. I took a total of 7 dives (including a drift dive off Gifton Island) and would gladly have done more. The house reef at the Oberoi is a pleasure to dive, full of sealife (I even got to see a seahorse close up!) Myself and my wife are literally counting tthe days until we can return. This is the place that I will judge all other hotels by...........unfortunately for them!

This was a second visit of the year having visited in March. We have never returned to the same holiday destination before, this time we took our children as a special treat as they are now at/going to university. The Oberoi is a top top class hotel and the dive school and house reef is nothing short of spectacular. I would compare it in the same class as the FourSeasons in the Maldives where we stayed the previous year. The sea is so clean and pure the seagrass grows here which attracts the seahorses. I have dived on the house reef 20 times now without getting bored because of the wonderful marine life. There are turtles, rays, lionfish and thousands of fish which populate the reef.
There were not very many guests because of the political situation but the quality of the service and everything else was unaffected. The kids learned to dive during the holiday which they loved and the also the quality of the hotel (they had never stayed at such a top quality hotel before) The food is superb, in particular the spicing of the dishes which was so well balanced. The food covers a whole range of different cuisines from European, North African Indian and Asian and never anything other than delicious. Things to be aware of - alcohol is expensive with foreign wines starting at $80 region because of the import taxes, the local wine is half this price and is perfectly acceptable. The portion size of the food was on the large size for us and we had to get used to not having clean plates! The internet speed was at the slow end of acceptable. As you can tell from these tiny minor points I'm nitpicking about this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: We booked a twin room for the children, as the rooms have only one king size bed the hotel provided...

Thank you for your loyal patronage of our resort. We were thrilled to see you back again this year. We are particularly pleased that you and the family enjoyed the diving experience that we offer. The internet speed is a function of the line coming into the hotel. As such, we have excellent infrastructure for high speed internet within the hotel. We hope to have faster speeds in a months time.

Impeccable service, friendly, attentive staff and attention to detail would be a fair summary of our experience at this hotel. My wife and I arrived at the Oberoi on 13th September for a one week stay with great memories of a previous visit and our expectations have, if anything, been exceeded. We would make particular mention of the restaurant staff as the food is consistently excellent.

Our wedding anniversary fell during our stay and we were provided with a lovely cake and also some effort was put into decorating our suite in a lovely, romantic way to help us mark the occasion.

Is it expensive? Yes. Is it the best hotel we have been to in Egypt? Yes (by a mile). Not our first visit and surely won't be our last.

Only slight niggle would be that the restaurant dress code is 'elegant attire' but they seem happy for gentlemen to turn up for dinner in shorts which we would prefer not to see in a hotel of this quality.

Almost forgot the awesome spa which also deserves a mention - great massages!
