Wonderful hotel the staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food was very good a great choice. Beautiful private beach with free sunbeds and towels (music was too loud on the beach at times). Pool area was lovely and gardens well kept. The room was a bit tired and bathroom not great just needed a bit of a refurb but spotlessly clean, and housekeeping were great clean towels every day and bedding if you asked for it.
We would definitely stay here again the weather was perfect blue skies and sunshine every day. From reception to bar/restaurant staff, lifeguards, cleaners everyone made you feel like family thanks to you all.

This hotel is 5 minutes walk to the main road, from there, you can walk to Mango market and Il Mercato. This hotel is very specious, garden, sun bathing area. Big and clean dining area, inner restaurant leading out to a terrace restaurant, you can also eat outside under the parasol. There is also a kids dining area for children with small chairs and tables. Food at their level for picking, a television watching cartoon while eating. A good variety of food/drinks to choose for all. Plenty to eat. At lunch, you can have delicious freshly made pizza, chips salads on the beach or dine at the restaurant. Ice cream and cakes for afternoon tea. This is a private beach front hotel with sandy sun bed area. Beach towels provided with exchange of towel card.
The beach is rocky so water shoes is a must. Lots of reef fishes to see. Life guards at the deep end looking out for the safety of the guests.
Hotel room are duplex blocks. The room we stayed is clean and spacious for the two of us, we also got a sunny balcony. Decor might need up grade but we spend all day on the beach anyway so it didn’t bother us. At the time we stayed, not children school holiday so no entertainments for children.
All the staff are very friendly and helpful, they will help in any and every way.
Entertainment is okay,
A free shuttle bus at 6pm will take you to Neema Bay old town but you need to book it.
All in all, this is one of the best hotel we have stayed in Sharm el Sheik. Plenty to eat and drink, attentive friendly staff, hot sunny weather, warm blue sea. Love it.

Very nice and clean hotel with private beach. The hotel design is very smart with beautiful gardens and swimming pool. Food is good and tasty. Wifi is available in all the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Specially Mr Taher at the reception. He was professional and very welcoming with us. Animation team is doing a good job adding a good atmosphere of joy and happiness. We originally booked 11 nights and as we liked the hotel we extended our stay to 14 nights. I will certainly recommend this hotel to others specially to whom looking for quality/price stay. I will give a score of 8.5/10

Amphoras Blu and its sister hotel Amphoras Aqua have amazing price/quality ratio. Actually at the moment of my booking they were literally the best hotels in the world by price/quality. I checked many hotels in many countries for my long 2-months stay, and I couldn’t find any resort hotel with all-inclusive for 1400 USD/month total price, except these ones. I was afraid there was some nasty catch but there turned out to be none. They’re not luxurious but have everything you need for a nice stay.
Amphoras Blu has a nice beach territory (Aqua is a 2nd line hotel and its guests use Blu beach too) with lots of sunbeds under umbrellas, there’s always lots of free ones. There’s no sandy beach there, just small knee deep dip zone before the corals and a jetty from which you can swim in the magnificent Red sea. The corals are not the best but there are some corals to see, and if you’re a good swimmer and can swim behind Amphoras Beach jetty on the right, this is where really good corals begin.
The main problem is the beach is not in a bay and there’s always either current or waves. If they get stronger they close the jetty and you cannot enter the sea no matter how good you swim. The danger is assessed for old ladies and small kids, but you sit with them on the shore even if you’re a snorkeling world champion. Expect the jetty to be closed 2-3 hours a day on average, sometimes no sea for the whole day.
At that (and other) times the animation guys and girls try their best to entertain you, unfortunately not many people want to participate. But they’ll make you happy if you let them.
There are really great snacks on the beach at the lunch time, especially the Italian pizza made in a forno right there at the beach.
Alcohol is always a problem in Egypt, but they have all usual set (not diluted) and rather good beer at the beach bar.

Pros: My booking was at Amphoras Aqua but I received a gentle phone call the day before my arrival from Mr. Taher Elgohary to inform me that I was relocated to Amphoras Blu due to renovations, he promised that I will enjoy my stay & this was fulfilled, starting by upgrading our rooms from garden to sea view. The main asset of this hotel is its staff who were keen at all times to make our stay unforgettable! Ibrahim the man for the hard tasks from eggs, to pizza to the waffles station, he is always there with a wide smile & tasty food. Ahmed Salama from house keeping with his spotless cleaning & amazing daily towel art. Mr. Magdy the restaurant manger with his "Consider it done policy", he does miracles. Shabaan at the restaurant with his energetic attitude. Tamer the Chef of the beach restaurant, who voluntary gives a kind hand to Ibrahim at the pizza station when his work is light. Ahmed at the beach bar with his numerous Ahmed 1,2,3 cocktails. The life guards at the beach Mohamed, Hossam & Samuel at the pool makes you always feel that your kids are safe. Mr. Ahmed Kamal & Mr. Kenawy at the reception & their high problem solving skills. Food is tasty & great. The beach is a snorkeling heaven, not for sandy beach lovers! Rooms are comfy. Animation team are great.

The beach is a snorkeling heaven, numerous fishes & nice corals being on Om El Sid cliff, not for sandy beach lovers! Great for snorkeling & diving activities. There is a sea parachute too though I didn't test it.

Cons: The Mosquitos!!!!! This hotel suffers from a serious outdoor mosquito problem at night, we weren't able to enjoy any night activity due to the heavy & continuous mosquito attacks. Faced other issues but all were solved by the managers.

the only bad thing about the beach is when it was closed, red flagged due to high tides, for me as an experienced swimmer it was over done but maybe for the safety of the masses this is the correct decision so I am neutral on that, one of the options was that we used the sister's hotel beach instead Amphoras Beach, a 3 mins walk!

Very good value for money, this place has everything for an excellent stay. Nice atmosphere (helpful and friendly staff), a clean pool, an excellent spot for snorkeling and a nice restaurant in a perfect location.

However, I do not recommend to use the taxi service inside the hotel.
The person in charge at 4 pm today was dishonest : we agreed on 40 pounds to go to the bus station. He dropped us off to a wrong place (which was not the bus station), then drove 5 km more to the expected destination (the bus station). He asked only at the end more than double, 100 pounds, for 11 km in total. He did it on purpose, I hate this behaviour!

We booked this hotel from booking.com however, the reviews and the pictures and the description absolutely do not match in real life. The restaurant which is the Buffay breakfast lunch and dinner was very poor quality extremely cool since it opened Buffay you could do whatever portions you want, which was OK however, the quality of the food was terrible. The rooms, good size, however extremely dated and again do not reflect the pictures mine only one who opens a good size however, he closes at six or 6:30pm along with the beach. There is no cold water to drink you have to beg for ice. Also, they give you one room key and if you ask for another, they said our policy only gives you one key which is insane. Lotta times I have to wait for my spouse to open the room for me so I have my own key I’ve never had this experience before. One of the bedsheets cover were ripped we stopped asking for things since there was no one to help we called for an iron three times. Both irons were not working. As we were waiting for our room keys in the morning, there was a another couple checked in already and after seeing the hotel, they ask for their money back and checked out not a good start for five night vacation. Also, very poor lighting in the rooms and most of the outlets did not work, the mini fridge did not cool or anything along with the networking TV. My parents did not leave the room watch their TV did not work so they had to call for someone to fix the TV twice during the five night we state . If I was by myself, I would’ve definitely checked out and left. However, we had six rooms so there was no way we could go somewhere else with five kids. I will try to to put a picture of the toilet you have to set an angle in order for you to use the toilet since it’s being blocked by the awkwardly placed shower Glass doors . I would absolutely stay away from this place and we actually booked expensive. I am escalating this complain. The staff were very accommodating it’s the management we had issues with, not enough staff and again NO ICE or cold water. There was lots of Ants in the resort. The staff are AMAZING they tried their best to help with little they have!!!!!
