We rested at the Reef Oasis Blue Bay Resort with my family from 28.09. 2023 to 11.10. 2023. Distance from the airport about 15 minutes by taxi.
The hotel area is quite large, a local minibus runs, and near the buildings there are “bus stops” named after the capitals of the world. If you don’t want to use “local transport, ” then walk from the farthest building for a maximum of 10-15 minutes. The area is clean, well-groomed, there is a cactus garden.
Check-in at the hotel is at 14:00, but if you arrive earlier, you will be given bracelets and sent to breakfast without additional charges (which is a big advantage compared to other hotels in Egypt), suitcases are stored outside near the reception. The same rules apply when moving out. The room will need to be checked out at 12:00, but you will be allowed in for lunch/dinner without additional charges, and you can also use beach towels until your departure. There are both Russian-speaking and English-speaking staff at the reception.

I would like to express my deep gratitude to the manager Hany, who quickly helped resolve all the issues that arose.
The rooms are standard. We had two double rooms without a balcony. All toiletries were included. The room has a large TV and a huge double bed. Beautiful view from the window. Among the minuses, I would like to note the lack of disposable slippers; room cleaning suffered a little (but this is most likely a problem in all hotels in Egypt). Also, upon arrival, the air conditioning was not functioning well, but it was repaired on the first day.
I got free Wi-Fi almost everywhere.
The food at the hotel is quite varied, I won’t even list it, since there was everything. From time to time we additionally cooked squid, crabs, shrimp, mussels, octopus, and mangoes were given for dinner every 3-4 days. Free local alcohol included (optional).
There are 2 “paid” restaurants on the hotel premises; upon check-in, we were given coupons for one-time visits to each of them.
The hotel beach is large, clean, there were enough sun loungers for everyone, regardless of the time, beach towels are issued by card. The sea is beautiful, clean, a gorgeous coral reef with many fish from small to huge tuna, needle fish, Napoleon fish, some vacationers saw a moray eel.
The hotel has about 5 swimming pools, and there are bars with snacks and drinks everywhere.
The hotel has animators, exercises and yoga were held every day, and various entertainment activities for children and adults in the evenings.
Among the excursions we took a trip to Cairo and did not regret it, the excursion was very interesting. But when planning an excursion to the pyramids, keep in mind that the bus ride will take about 10-11 hours one way (and not, as the guide told us, 5 hours along the “short” road) and a little less back.
Therefore, if you have the opportunity, it is better to pay extra and fly to Cairo by plane.
In general, the hotel fully corresponds to its 5 stars, I would gladly relax there a second time.
