    Location 8.27 /10

    The hotel enjoys a situation right on the coast of Naama Bay, perched above its own private beach. The airport is just 8 miles away while the centre of Naama Bay is only 5 miles away. Not that you would have any need to go given the infrastructure here, but Hadaba is just a 10 minute drive away, as is Shark's Bay.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The path up to the front of the hotel is one of the longest of any hotel however the journey is made easy on the eye by the immaculately kept gardens along the way. The main lobby takes the form of a rotunda and its centre piece, surrounded by imposing floor to ceiling pillars, is a lotus-shaped pool and fountain above which is an atrium allowing light to pour in. Seating clusters are arranged around this and the reception, behind which are some of the smartest staff in Sharm, is to the left as you walk in. Out to the back is a terrace flanked by a pub on one side and a café on the other and at the end is a view over one of the hotel's swimming pools as well as the Red Sea. Speaking of swimming pools, the hotel has five of them, which include two just for kids. The most impressive (not only at the Reef Oasis, but of any hotel) is the heated pool which wraps itself around the entire back of the hotel. The relax pool is built on two levels and boasts a waterfall, but no children are allowed in the vicinity. The third pool is the leisure pool, complete with water slides, and just like the other two, there is plenty of space for everyone both inside and around the pool with sufficient sun beds and parasols. There is also a platform just above the beach, shared with the honeymoon suites, which is home to three jacuzzis. The Pirate's Club and it staff take care of the kids throughout the day and even has its own swimming pool and play area. Whatever the time of day, there'll be activities, shows or live music put on by the animation team. Babysitting is also available at a charge. The hotel's wellness facilities are quite something. Aside from one of the finest gyms in Sharm (with a great view by the way), Reef Oasis boasts a spa run by Sothy's offering every treatment you can think of in 15 treatment rooms. In addition you've got a professional beauty salon and hydrotherapy with salt water. A doctor and clinic are also to be found on site. For relaxation of a different sort, wind down with a book in the library or challenge someone to a game of pool. Sports facilities include tennis courts, table tennis, volleyball, basketball and football, while a host of water sports can be practiced on the beach. A small shopping arcade features boutiques selling jewellery, souvenirs, books and supplies with a pharmacy and a bank also at your disposal. The entire complex is kept immaculately with blooming flowers at every pace while the staff of the hotel are willing and efficient.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    With a whopping 649 rooms, Reef Oasis has one of the highest inventories in Sharm. Several categories are available to guests depending on their number and requirements. Standard rooms are well appointed with lightly carved, chunky dark wood fittings including bedside tables, dresser, butler, wardrobe and table and chairs. They are also equipped with safe, complimentary water, tea and coffee facilities and a free minibar. The bathroom is one of quality and offers personalised toiletries, hairdryer and a huge marble shower unit. For a little more space the superior room has an extra seating area while the next category, the deluxe or executive rooms, offer extra comforts such as separate bathtub and shower, more toiletries, bath robe and slippers, one free bag of laundry per day, a special area for breakfast with upgraded facilities and vouchers or free massages at the spa. For families, a two bedroom unit can be rented with a master bedroom and another twin. Each has their own bathroom and all the facilities found in the other, more standard rooms. Other items, such as Playstations are available on request. All but a few of the rooms have a terrace or balcony as well as of course air conditioning.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    There are in total 11 outlets serving food plus another five serving drinks only; so you won't be going hungry at the Reef Oasis! The two largest restaurants are the main, Bay View, and the Sea Breeze, which overlooks the Red Sea. Both are all inclusive and serve a wide choice of International cuisine, beautifully presented. The former serves breakfast and dinner while the latter breakfast and lunch. Other options include Al Dente, the Italian eatery, Fisherman's, you've guessed it, the seafood specialist and Kababgi, the Oriental and Middle Eastern grill open for lunch and dinner. Several outlets, for example the Caribbean Café, serve light snacks, while each pool has a snack bar too. The Pub, the Lobby Piano Lounge and the Energy Bar are just some of the outlets open for drinks only. A limited 24h room service is available at an extra charge.

    Beach

    The beach is located some two miles further down from the hotel. It is quite far from the reception and some of the rooms (about 5 minutes by foot) and you'll have to negotiate quite a few steps to reach it. Equipped with deckchairs and sunshades, it offers a magnificent view onto the Ras Mohammed natural park, particularly at sunset. A Bedouin tent is pitched there. There are no sports and water activities.

    To know

    The resort is one of the biggest in Sharm and it can take a while to get from one part to another. However, the hotel has several buggies that circulate the complex and if you see one at any point you can flag it down and ask the driver to take you to wherever you need to be. There is also a bus that sticks to a particular route around the resort which you can also take advantage of. Both the buggies and bus can be used free of charge.

      • Location 7.84

      The Falcon Hills is another small, budget option in the Hadaba zone of Sharm el Sheikh. It is a compact, rather quiet place which is suitable for friends, couples or families where the needs of each would be modestly met. Expect nothing exceptional at this hotel, but here and there are little touches which stand out making the place a little more appealing. If money is a little tight, or you are looking for a cheap base for pursuing activities such as diving or lazing around, the Falcon Hills is a good bet.

      Part of the Spanish hotel chain, Sol Melia, the Sol Cyrene is great for guests wishing to spend maximal amounts of time outdoors. The pool and the beach areas are pleasant although the interior of the hotel isn't very inspiring. The hotel feels secluded which is a good quality to have in the area. The beach is one of the best we have seen in Sharm although it can get a little crowded.

      • Location 8.1

      The Tropicana Azure Club, not to be confused with the Tropicana Grand Azure just across the road, is not on the beach but does have a very pleasant pool area planted with palm trees. The pool itself is large, so a good choice for guests with children who are after a little sunbathing with peace of mind. The rooms are of a good standard but the food may leave some guests disappointed.

      Located along the coast in Naama Bay, the Marriott Beach was one of the first hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. Opened in 1996, this hotel offers its customers many water sports and the opportunity to bask on the beach. The facilities make for comfortable and quality services. An ideal hotel in which to relax or practice sports.

      If there was a Sham el Sheikh hotel alumni, the Helnan would be part of the old boys club. This grand edifice right in front of the Red Sea is one of the resort's original hotels although you'd never know it from the way it has been looked after. Popular with foreign tourists (Italians, Russians, British) as well as Egyptians, it is suitable for families, couples or groups of friends. With a great location, good infrastructure and friendly staff you need look no further for your Naama Bay base.

      The Jaz Belvedere Hotel is easily one of Sharm el Sheikh best quality resorts. With its beautiful interiors and very well maintained exteriors, the Belvedere is more of a hotel than a resort. Directly on the beach, the hotel is small enough to retain intimacy and large enough not to feel claustrophobic after a week. The Belvedere is definitely one of our favourites.

      One of the classier outfits in Sharm el Sheikh, the Royal Grand Sharm offers the complete package to guests looking for that little bit extra from their hotel. Perky staff, a beautifully kept environment and convivial atmosphere make this a natural choice for both couples and families.

      An all-round good quality hotel compared to most hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. The extension of the Hilton Shark's Bay is neat and well maintained and is separate from the original part of the resort. There is also nothing Egyptian about the place; one could be anywhere in the world. This part of the hotel lacks in atmosphere but is relaxing and guests are guaranteed a fairly good quality room.

      The Oriental Rivoli is without doubt one of the classiest hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. Its sumptuous decoration must be the finest in the resort and all of its services exude quality, from its staff to its food. Best suited for couples or groups of friends, due to its lack of animation or a kids club, it is the perfect place for relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation. Recommended whole-heartedly by Easyvoyage!
