“Lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

I spent two weeks here at the end of nov 2013, with my partner and three year old daughter. The beach was beautiful, the water park great for kids, our room was spotless every day thanks to Ahmed. Even if I booked the sentido I would still have preferred the reef oasis part as there are larger pools, we had a pool bar at our pool (which was literally on our doorstep) and we made good friends with Mohammed and Solomon who went above and beyond to cater for us. The food was lovely, the curry restaurant especially was beautiful probably better than at home! The main restaurant by the beach had a different theme each night, so different types of food all the time. Great place for kids, had no need to leave the resort as everything was at hand! It was very quiet there which was a good thing! A lot of Russians, we met a two lovely Russian families, the rest...not so much! Bottom line - staff were amazing, hotel spotless, food great, perfect for kids and would definitely return.

Room Tip: For children I advise ground floor rooms

Stayed 16th to 30th December 2013. Room 7351. My wife and I had stayed at this resort about 7 years ago and we were quite amazed not just at the number of staff who were still there but how many reconised us. This was about our tenth visit to Egypt but by far the best yet. Our room was in an excellent part of the complex with outstanding views of the ocean and all of ten steps to the Colombo Pool. The pool and area around it was loving maintained by Abdel who ensured clean towels were placed on our sunbeds every day and took great pride in trimming the sun shade and beds with ballons and towel sculptures on my birthday. Sherif the bar tender at this pool never tired of offering refreshments throughout the day. The Citadel resturant is in a fantastic position overlooking the sea and the staff could not be more attentative, I have to mention the waiter Nadil who went to great lenths to ensure the evening meal on my birthday was perfect. My wife enjoyed Lobster while I was spoiled huge griled Prawns. The table was decked with fresh flowers nothing was too much trouble. Assad who managed the Indian resturant which is close to the Citadel also deserves a mention for his attention to detail even bringing the chefs from the kitchen to discuss our requirements. He is also in charge of the open air Bar- B.Q. on Sunday nights were the food is cooked to order and served piping hot. Mahmoud who was a waiter when we first met him years ago has now graduated to Bars and Beverage manager never seems to sleep and genuinely tries to ensure all the guests have everything they need. I must also mention Dooa and Julie who are the Public Relations girls who were very compitent and knowledgeable when it came to organising trips. I am sure some readers will think I have a vested interest in the Reef with this report being so full of praise but credit were credit is due. I am over three score years and ten, have traveled much of the world, but due to the way all the staff went about their duties this was certainly one of the best holidays I have had. I realy hope the troubles in Cairo soon get resolved, whilst it is a very long way from Sharm it is undoubtably having a serious effect on the number of visitors holidaying in this amazing country.

We had a nice and relaxing stay in the Reef Oasis Beach resort. I would like to thank the super friendly Egyptian people for our fantastic stay: Nasser of the Indian restaurant, Nabil of the Citadel restaurant (both restaurants with a fantastic view), Mahmoud the diving instructor, Mohamed the pool guard, and Mostafa the room servant for his honesty when we let our safe open.

A bit annoying were the Russian guests, without any respect for personnel and for the reef.

If you want to see the beautifull reefs in Sharm, you should go now, before the Russians destroy it all. Shame on you Russian tourists!

Room Tip: When going in the calm season a room in the cheaper beach resort is OK. We thought about an upgrade...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Reef Oasis Beach Resort from January 11th to January 16th, 2014. The staff was friendly and very helpful throughout our stay. Most, if not all, spoke excellent Arabic, Russian and English. My only complaint was the lack of internet service... only available in the reception lobby.

The Citadel was our restaurant of choice. I would highly recommend renting a mask, snorkel and fins to view the corral reef and colourful fish. A worthwhile excursion is going to the Old Market and haggling for nice quality souveniers.

A special thank you to Yasser (a host at the Citadel restaurant). You really deserve a promotion my friend. The staff at the front desk were also awesome in helping me find my delayed luggage.

I think that the Reef Oasis Beach Resort offers tremendous value at a modest price and we would definitely return.

Me and my husband went there for ours honeymoon December. We decided to choose this all-inclusive resort.

The hotel is grand and quiet new. Got some nice Egyptian style buildings.

It is quiet fully equipped. Such as 3-4 restaurant, 4-5 bars and pools etc. However, instead of have so many of them, it will be nice if they can have only 1 or 2 but make it really nice. Will be great the heated pool is smaller but actually heated. And instead of have so many bars should really indicated most of the drinks that you actually need to pay. And will be nice if the food in different restaurant are more different.

The most impress thing for us is how amazing the stuff there is. They are very friendly and helpful..Because we are young couple so we make friend with them very soon after which make the holiday more interesting.

Azizs and Mohamed in the reception are so lovely, they helped us so much about the internet coz my husband need to work during we stay. They basically did everything that we asked. Like they never say no.

The bar stuff Aahmed, Ahmos and Sherif are very nice and funny. We really enjoyed spent time with them.

And also ElHefny, Mahmoud,Yasser and Mahamed in the restaurant they bring us so much laugh as well. ElHefny even showed us his special magic, he can not really speak English but we are really impressed that he tried so hard to communicated with us.

We had really great time there, so it's def worth to go.

Room Tip: Go the sea view room and first floor will be good.

Stayed here in September 2008 (long time ago I know, but only got around to finally reviewing places visited on here).

I stayed with my girlfriend at the time for two weeks all inclusive and we were lucky enough to have one of the newly built rooms which had their own pool (near to entrance to hotel). Rooms were spotless and having your own pool (shared with the other 6 or so rooms) was ideal.

The hotel restaurants offered a good choice of food and there was always something there too please all tastes. Swimming pools were a good size and clean.

The main plus of this hotel is the beach, there is a floating jetty out into the sea from which you can swim around and see the most amazing fish and corals.

Whilst we were there there was a waterpark being built at the entrance to the hotel, so this will only add to the enjoyment of a stay here (for those with kids).

Room Tip: Ask for a view (i.e overlooking sea or a pool)
