“Beautiful grounds and friendly staff”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We have just returned from a very quick week in Nubian Island. This was our first visit to Sharm El Sheik and we will definitely return.
The hotel and the grounds are lovely and very well maintained. We had a garden room which was closer to the bottom pool than to the main building but it was a nice walk to get to the Restaurant for breakfast and dinner each day. We were all a wee bit disappointed with our room when we arrived, it was just a little tired but on holiday, a lot if time isn't spent in the room so it didn't matter, It was spotlessly clean which was much more important.
For the first few days staff were constantly wanting you to visit the spa, have photographs taken, book trips etc and because I just wanted to relax I found this a little irritating but the staff were all so nice, you couldn't be offhand about this.
The food was lovely, I could not fault anything. The staff were friendly and polite. As with previous reviews, I have to agree the Russian guests were very rude and didn't treat the staff very well. Manners cost nothing.
Both pools were lovely, one heated and lively, the other not heated and quiet.
Would we return? Yes.

Room Tip: We had a room down towards the main pool and at this time of year had the sun early in the day. I w...

Nubian Island is a good clean hotel.

Staff are freindly and cant do enough for you,

Grounds are well maintained.

Pools are good. Top pool is not heated, the bottom pool is and at this pool has music going on and games during the day, by the entertainment team. Charlie and Tanya were great and they always had time to talk to all the guests.(two sisiters).

Food
Nobody could complain about the food it was always hot, alot of choice, and so much of it.

The only BAD hing I can say about this hotel is LEAVE THE SALON ALONE.
I had a pedicure here and she gave me a friction burn on the side of my foot by rubbing a hard sponge along the side of it. This then became infected.
I didn't know but they dont sterilize there equipment after each person. So please be awear of this.

Room Tip: They are all the same.

My husband and I stated at Island hotel for 2 weeks at the end of January 2013. Although it was not our first trip to Egypt it was our first stay at this hotel. All areas were kept immaculately clean, our bedroom house keeper kept our room phenomenally clean.

Our room was on the ground floor next to the island pool, perfectly positioned for all facilities and shops. The gentlemen from the palm square shops were friendly but not pushy.

All staff were friendly, helpful and chatty. They would remember your previous drinks orders/favourite tables which is a lovely touch - makes every guest feel super special! The animation team were friendly and lots of fun too.

Excellent selection of food in the restaurants at each meal service, the Italian and seafood restaurants both excell themselves. Although should you attend the buffet service towards the end of service the food could be cold, there is a microwave available for your use.

All in all it was a lovely holiday and I would recommend this hotel without a second thought. Have a lovely holiday! :-)

me and my partner traveled to egypt for the first time in may 2012, we stayed at nubian island for 2 weeks and it was the best holiday we have ever had. our room was just feet away from the pool, it was well kept and beautiful. i can not say how fantastic the staff were, nothing was to much trouble, so friendly, the pool guy was fab, he worked very hard always had a smile on his face, the bar men were always smiling and cheerfull, waiters were brilliant, even the gardeners. I loved the fact there were cocktail partys for the english every week were we met all the managers and got to meet the other english guests. i can not fault this hotel at all, (maybe if i had to find something it would be the rude germans lol) if your thinking of booking this hotel DO IT! best thing you will ever do. Food was lovely, plenty choice, infact im online now looking to book again in march 2014 i may do it direct though with the hotel as its coming up at 900 pounds each through thompson :( the hotel and grounds are amazing but its the staff that make this hotel truly amazing they are all fantastic and go beyond the normal to make you happy and welcome, george the manager your staff are a credit to you, and thanks for the best holiday iv ever had, i cant wait to return so excited, xxxxxx

We stayed at the Nubian after a weeks cruise. The staff were brilliant no complaints at all , always friendly and a smile on there face. Rooms were spotless plenty of storage space big single beds, not much English tv channels. Food was good plenty of choice , try the Italian restaurant near the bottom pool excellent. But you have to book a couple of days in Advance. The spa staff will come round the pool selling treatments, don't pay the price they are offering haggle and you will get a good discount we paid £35 for 2hour sauna steam room jacuzzi body scrub face mask and massage.animation staff were good Charlie always having time for a chat and good info on Sharm. Drinks were ok didn't find them particularly strong, but the coffees were very good . Overall very good hotel and would recommend it.

having never visited Egypt before, we were pleased with our choice of hotel. On booking with thomson we had requested a quiet room and on arrival we were shown to one of the bungalows on the Honeymoon island. The room was spacious if a liitle dark (prhaps thats why its a honeymoon room!!). Hotel complex was very good,we preferred the pool nearer the hotel as this was quieter. Food was overall very good however a bit repetitive. The Bar /restaurant staff were very friendly and attentitive, however the Spa staff were very pushy and quite rude. We were advised that we could not do some of the road trips, which was a shame, but we went to the Market and also the Soho square, both ok. The Gym looked well equiped however the RUSSIANS took over, as they did the whole hotel, if you let them.Wow what rude people.
Overall a nice holiday, if we were to return to Sharm the we would happily stay again at this hotel.
