“Fantastic Spring Break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We had a most marvellous 7 day break in mid-March at this hotel. From the moment we arrived to when we left, the staff could not be more helpful if they tried. Our room cleaner was charming and helpful. The beach attendant would see us coming and immediately came over with two towels each and helped move the sun beds into the direction we wanted, likewise the pool attendants, dining staff and reception.
The food was fantastic – no buffets but dishes always freshly prepared to your order, to top restaurant standard, and half the menu choice changed each day. The dishes ranged from European, Middle Eastern to Indian, so there was always something you liked. In any case there was never a problem if you wanted something added or taken off.
The hotel is away from main Hurghada on a quiet piece of coast with its own beach and corals. The buildings are of a very high standard but in an understated way with plenty of room for everybody, whether in the dining areas, around the pool or on the beach.
All the rooms are suites in groups of about 5/6 bungalow suites, scattered across some 50 acres. They are not just places to sleep in, but with plenty of space to move and sit about, a separate dressing room for suitcases and clothes, and a walled courtyard with a couple of sun beds – particularly nice in the afternoons. There was a very good buggy service if you wanted a lift from/to the centre to/from your suite.
Yes, this time of the year it does get a bit windy but not too unpleasant so next time we shall try later in the year.
I also did the trip by car to Luxor, the Valley of the Kings and Karnak, a very long day but worth it.

We were encouraged by our travel agent to stay at The Oberoi in Hurghada for a six night break in the sun. The hotel website does not do it justice.

From the moment we arrived to the time we left, the service and hotel were of the highest standard. Having stayed at some of the best hotels in the region and the rest of the world, The Oberoi was right up there with the best. Real value for money and could not recommend highly enough.

Well done to all the team - you made us all have a marvellous break.

My girlfriend & I booked a 10 night stay at The Oberoi through Sovereign in August 2012m& can safely say it was one of the best travel decisions we have ever made.

Whilst we are normally quite adventurous, this time around we were seeking some summer sun, a place where we could relax & enjoy some first class treatment and we were not disappointed. Whilst the complex is enormous, the facilities excellent & the food simply delicious, what made the trip for us was the helpfulness & kindness of the staff. Everyone we met made us feel at home & went out of their way to help us, whatever our request. Abbas, our pool attendant, in particular, would always pop up (unasked) with extra towels/sun cream & refreshing drinks & was great conversation too.

We spent the majority of our day in the blazing hot sunshine, either poolside or on the beach, both with fantastic facilities when it comes to sun beds, wind breaks etc. In the evenings, we'd usually have dinner either at the onsite restaurant or order room service - the food is absolutely exceptional, and definitely a contributing factor as to why we'd visit The Oberoi again.

There wasn't much to see in Hurghada during the day, but we went on a couple of excursions; quad biking in the desert (brilliant) & a submarine trip (OK)' and in the evenings we ventured out a couple of times (via private chauffeur) to the local nightclubs (good, but dress warm as the air conditioning is intense inside!). As it was a relaxing holiday, we mainly spent our nights in with room service & a DVD from the hotel's wide selection.

Overall, this was a brilliant holiday and taught us a lesson in luxury - I would definitely recommend The Oberoi, and will look to visit the chain here again or at another location.

Recently returned from a week's stay at the Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh - excellent! From the range of facilities (spa, gym, pool, diving, sandy beach) to the accommodation (high quality furniture, bedding, bathroom products etc) restaurants (delicious food, attentive service) and friendly and responsive staff this is a truly enjoyable hotel and resort. Set away from the frenetic and frenzied activities and conditions of the normal packaged hotels in the area, the Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh is a relaxing and delightful oasis of luxury yet within easy access of the hustle and bustle of "downtown" Hurghada and the mediterranean-esque surrealism of El Gouna.

My husband and I recently took a 'warm' break to the Red Sea......while the weather was windy and the evenings quite chilly, the warmth of the Oberoi and staff overshadowed any negatives we may have had. Helpful, friendly and efficient service, from the Management/front desk down to the grounds keepers....it was perfect! The food was terrific.....there was a new menu every night plus you could always order from the standard menu. The in suite menu was extensive. The suites were well appointed and the bed very comfortable. Overall.....a definite recommendation!

Room Tip: Luckily we had booked the suite with a pool....because the wind made it nearly impossible to enjoy t...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your lovely comments on our product and services. The transition period between winter and summer does bring some wind at times. Nevertheless, we have 29*C today and the future days are looking really sunny and bright. I am pleased that you enjoyed our most popular category of accommodation - the suites with their own private swimming pools. We look forward to your next visit.

Excellent service, food, amenities, activities and very friendly staff. An ideal place for couples to relax and unwind on the beautiful, private beach, A special thank you to Dhiren pareira, for arranging our stay. We were very pleased with everything and highly recommend the resort .

Room Tip: Suite 408 was excellent, a few metres from the beach and close enough to the main building
