“Back home less than 24 hrs and already booking up to return!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2011

This was not our hotel of choice as we were yet again, same as many others, changed from the Sensatori hotel. This was the second time Thomsons had changed our holiday in as many months and we had intended to pospone until the Sensatori was ready. However, due to unforseen circumstances,we decided we had to go away on the date already arranged and kept our fingers crossed!. We had been assured by our agent in England that we had been transferred like for like room wise but unfortunately, this was not the case. Apparently, this was not the first time this had happened and I am sure it wont be the last. However, although Thomson in England let us down, I can not fault the help and support we were given at the resort by one of the Reps, Yousif. He is a credit to Thomson and I can not thank him enough, or the night duty manager, Wael, for sorting out our room and for us unexpectedly, having one of the best holidays we have had in 26 years. They couldnt have been more friendly or helpful and if there was any problem, the staff were there so quickly to deal. The grounds and gardens were superb and kept immaculate.
The food was excellent where ever you chose to eat (and I am a very fussy person), always good quaility , plenty of choice, freshly prepared and hot. Al Dente was our favourite and we ate in there several times. The bread and pastries were the best we have had. All the staff were friendly and made you feel very at home but a special mention to Said for making our breakfast and sometimes lunch, a very relaxed and enjoyable occasion. Plenty of Pools for people to chose from and no probelms with sunbeds at any time. We returned home last night and I am just waiting for the travel agent to open this morning to change a booking that we have for one of the hotels in Sharm that we have visited before that is in the top three, as this hotel far exceeded the quality of food, service and welcome and I cant believe it is only rated at No. 6. We will not hesitate to recommend this hotel and are looking forward to our imminent return. Thank goodness the Sensatori wasnt finished as we would hate to have missed this hotel.

This is one of the best hotels i've been to. It just has everything...loads of restaurant’s, loads of bars, too many pools to count, large rooms, there's just too much to list. We upgraded which is definitely the thing to do. You get a better room, plus you get upgraded breakfast in a different location, you also get late check-out which is handy. All the restaurants are lovely, lots of variety, the kobagi(Greek) is amazing. The beach is also lovely but goes straight on to the coral so only room for paddling if you’re not in to snorkeling. All the staff are great, couldn’t do enough for you. Also shops and a bank on site, so they really do cover everything. The spa is also great and very good value for money. The excursions are also great, went Quad biking through the desert which for £35 per couple, was an amazing trip. Soho square is only a 10 minute taxi ride, which is worth a trip, shops, restaurants and even an ice bar and ice rink. All in all a great hotel and can’t wait to go back.

We chose the ROBB resort for our honeymoon, as friends of ours reccomended it, and its fair to say we were not dissapointed. The hotel is only 15 minutes from the airport so very painless getting there. Once we arrived my wife and i was tottaly over whelmed by the sheer size of the place. Once we checked we were taken to our room in a buggy, this was good as trying to find your room on first night with your cases would be a bit of a hedache!! Our first impression of our room and more so location wasn't very good. The room itself was fine good size nice bed etc, but the location felt not part of the resort and the view was directly at the hotel next door. Because it was our honeymoon we requested a pool view with thompsons and called the hotel and asked the same!!! We felt there could of been a bit more effort made. Maybe a bunch flowers choclotes or a cheap bottle of wine, ithink if there was we would of kept the room but instead i decided to change!! Unfortunatly we were unable to get a pool view unless we upgraded so we paid the extra 200 euroes and got a pool view, which we were extremly happy with!!!
The food in the hotel is excellent with a massive selection, The food at the leisure pool was great for lunch!! The chef cooking from 12 - 5 , fish , chicken, steak , burgers etc , great grub!! Drinks are good to, ok the beer not the best in world but with a bit lemonade does trick!! Wine with dinners very good! The staff are excellent 10/10 for cleaners, waiters bar staff animation team, great service and always pleasent !!
I would deffinitly reccomend this hotel we had the time of ourl lives, great relaxing holiday only problem now a stone heavier !!!

Just got back from a very relaxing & enjoyable week at ROBBR !
Myself and my husband found all staff to be polite & courteous. We were upgraded to a Deluxe Room and was not disappointed. Pools extremely clean with an ambundance of sun beds and parasols - Pool & Bar Staff genuinely helpful. Have to give Marino & Barbie from the Animation Team a mention - they are all just full of beans from morning til night - a pleasure to watch ( just a gentle pointer - Animation Team should perhaps stick to singing and dancing and keep away from the comedy sketches - heard some unsavoury comments from other guests - but you always get someone complaning ! ). Food and Drink was of a very high standard - ( The Fish & Chips in the Pub Bar is just the Best ! especially when Mohammed ( Aka - Nokia, Trouble along with me Double Trouble - private joke ) serves you!
A must is the Caribean Bar from 5-6pm you can watch the sun go down - it is a must !
Anywho - looking forward to going back again in September - if you want a lovely, quiet place relaing palce to stay with great food & scenery - with a 10 minute transfer from the Airport - then the ROBBR is the place for you !

We were meant to be at the Sensatorri and were apprehensive about the change at the last minute. We upgraded to a junior suite which meant breakfast in the fisherman's restaurant which was a lovely way to start the day. We found everything very very clean , and plenty of space although suspect the hotel was not full. The quality of the food could not be faulted and there was always plenty of choice. Service from all the staff was excellent could not single anyone out except for the doorman who was superb always pleased to see you and helpful. Also a special mention to the General manager of food and beverage who never seemed to go off duty the man was everywhere saw him talking to all the staff and customers and also saw him clearing plates in one of the restaurants during a busy time the man must be a legend in the hotel all the staff seemed to have a lot of respect for him. All the pool areas were lovely and we tried them all our favourite area was the beach and the little raised area with three jacuzzis. Enjoyed the Italian restaurant and the beach bar the best.The only negatives for us were constantly being asked to join in activities i.e. darts,volley ball etc also the evening entertainment was not our sort of thing so we didn't go to see it but it didn't matter as where our room was situated we could hear it all and some of the animation team have very very loud voices. Also went on 2 excursions Cairo (by air) was a very long day about 18 hours but well worth it and Luxor (by air ) which was a shorter day and also worth the visit. Would we book this hotel again -yes in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: take pack of cards etc as entertainment limited

We had wonderful week. The hotel was excellent. Even though our room was towards the rear of the complex, it did not spoil our walks to and from our room because of the beautiful gardens, and in fact we had the added advantage of a peaceful setting instead of being situated near the entertainment/shopping/main reception area. There is a 'hotel shuttle bus' available if you dont fancy the walks. Staff very friendly, if you come across a waiter called Nokia (apparently he likes to connect people) he works in between the 2 bars just off the main reception, he will certainly keep you smiling. Amination Team, try all the time to involve you in daily and evening entertainment, fantastic if you have kiddies. The food we could not fault, lots of variety, yummy curries and fancy breads. House wine and beer excellent, but cocktails not as good of what we had experienced in other hotels. Gym - good equipment and overlooked the sea, could have been a little cooler in there. All in all a fab holiday and would recommend anyone that was looking to going to Sharm to pay that little bit more and stay ROBB. Finally our flight home, lots of other people complained how bad their hotel food was, so its well worth a few pounds more.

im 18 and went to reef oasis blue bay resort with my parents, i had been looking forward to it for a long time and when we got there after a day flight it surpassed our expectations straight away. after the flight we was planning to go straight to the room and get some rest, but our first impressions of the hotel were so good we decided to go out to a bar, it was relaxed (great for my parents!) the welcome we got was great with complementary drinks and staff who took us and our bags to the room ( which was very helpful as no one wants to find there room in a big resort after a whole day of traveling! )

the room was exceptionally clean the beds were large and comfortable and the mirror was HUGE! which was obviously a winner for me! it ticket all the boxes.

The food
there is a buffet restaurant next to the lobby and also one down by the beach both are excellent as you can pig out as much as you want like everyone does on holiday!
the Italian restaurant has to be my favorite Italian is my favorite food so i wasn't expecting the amazing quality when i heard it was part of the all inclusive deal! the staff were great and put up with even some of the rudest people on other tables! we've booked to go again this summer and this will definitely be a popular choice! you have to book to eat at this restaurant in advance so i advise strongly to do so because you will regret it if you dont! a kebab like restaurant located next to the main infinity pool it was lovely and once again you can eat as much as you want and again we left more than happy with the food.

drinks.
i enjoy good red wine and was not expecting much from the all inclusive option but it was lovely. there is a large selection of drinks and every one we tried we enjoyed. at breakfast theres an option to buy freshly squeezed orange juice we didn't expect to pay for things but it is definitely worth paying for because it was so fresh you could see the waiters blending the oranges at the bar its a lovely way to wake you up on a hot morning!

pools.
there are four pools in the resort i didnt get to enjoy all four but we paid many visits to the relax pool which is adult only it had a lovely atmosphere and a bar which if you go in july you will be visiting alot because of the extream heat!

the beach.
when i went you had to take a short walk down the side of the hotel to the beach in the middle of the day it was boiling hot and quite tiring however we could see a lift being built which will be used alot as the beach is so beautiful and the snorkeling ( even though i was scared to go in the water ) is absolutely amazing there was always a sunbed to be found even if you had to walk a little while to find one and the views are stunning

unfortunately before i left i was ill with glandular fever and a few days into the holiday i became so ill i couldn't leave the hotel room. but the air con and comfy beds made it just as comfortable as being bed bound at home. the staff were amazing as when my parents told them the reason i couldn't make it to dinner they prepared a plate of food from the buffet and it got delivered to my room later in the day

so my holiday was pretty much ruined due to my illness however the two days i did get to enjoy the resort was enough to convince me to go back again! and we have just booked today for this june.
