... and allowed to return to England. An agreement was reached that the young Iranian at the centre of the problem would not be treated. A similar episode was resolved in Colonel Ghadafi’s Libya when some hostages were taken there after the shooting of PC Yvonne Fletcher. The problem this time was that Libyans in the UK were being treated badly by the authorities following the shooting. A help line was set up in the UK so that Libyans could have their grievances ...
Only a 4 1/2 hour flight, arrive earlier than normal so a couple of hours sunlight left. Interesting journey via taxi to the hotel, which included having to get out of it as we got grounded on a sleeping policeman! Hotel is very spread out, nice gardens. First rooms not to good but the girls manage secure new ...
... All we want them to do is keep us alive.
Anyway, we now have 8 cans of Coke, and none of our American comrades want any. Apparently they're all Coke Zero devotees. We continue on our drive until we come around the bend in the highway and lo and behold! The Red Sea!
Despite its name, the Red Sea is actually an incredible, deep aqua color. It is breathtakingly beautiful, and the area really should be filled with resorts. There are plenty of ...
... months earlier, and even confirming via phone call a week before our arrival, the hotel turned out to be a fiasco. At first it seemed to be a normal seamless check-in, with the bell hop taking our bags to our room while the desk clerk checked us in. We even paid for the full week in cash. But just as we were about to be shown to our room (where our luggage was already taken), the general manager came out of his office and starting yelling at the ...

Since talking with karina, I had started to realize I couldnt do up to 6 months in sharm over the winter. 2 weeks and I am going mental. If I had time to have a social life and do something, it wouldnt be so bad. but I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Reef Oasis Blue Bay Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
What can i say. This is definately worthy of 5 star! Everything about it was great. If you did not want to lift a finger all week then you didnt. Staff were very attentive at all times. Even laying on your sunbed by the pool they serve you drinks. We arrived in the evening and had a golf buggy to take us to our room which was only a 30 second walk from reception and restaurants. Closely followed by our luggage a few minutes later.
An amazing hotel - clean, modern and more swimming pools than you can shake a stick at!
Loved evey bit of it !!!!!!!
first time for me and my wife to go all inculsive , pick a great hotel . the rooms was very big and clean tidy , clean towels and bedding eveyday and soft drinks in the mini fridge , the veiw was breath taking from day one ! . entertainment was very good for all the family , the food was great from all the resturants , the health spa is a great way to get relaxed and enjoy your holiday from day one!!! the staff are so helpfull , they can not do enough for anyone , we can not wait to go again back to this hotel .
Having just returned and based on many 5* hotel stays, It is worth a try if your expectations on service are relaxed.
Sono stata al Blue Bay dal 23 al 30 giugno e la situazione è questa :
This hotel is still not finished and we were not informed by our holiday company (Portland) before we travelled. A bit disappointed that we were expecting and paying for a 5 star hotel when it is not. The rooms are lovely and live up to the 5 stars, but thats where it ends. The beach bar is in a lovely location overlooking the reef and the lunchtime menu has a good variety of freshly cooked food and the waiters are very attentive refilling your water . We ate in the main resaurant two evenings and both times members of our group were ill the next day (may be no connection). The atmosphere was lacking and no different to breakfast. We booked the A La Carte restuarants every night after that. As the hotel was still going through 'soft opening' and it was not fully occupied we were able to do this.The food was lovely, but service was not good for requests for drinks with the meal. One glass of wine was offered, if you asked for another it took 10-15mins to arrive, and request for a third drink were acknowledged but the drink never arrived.
Good, we'll be better in a few months!
It's completely new, and construction works are still going on.
It's in a beautiful setting, rooms are big and well decorated. Main restaurant average, theme restaurants are really delicious.
Staff is very helpful. Good spa and treatments. It will be better in a few months when everything will be finished.
The hotel has only recently started taking in english guests for about 5 weeks or so now via thomson. However alot of other nationalities are about. The hotel is currently going through what they call a 'soft' opening wherby it has not yet reached full occupancy i would say approx 30% at the moment. Which is great as you get the pick of the sun lougers and the waiters / staff cannot do enough for you - however make sure you give them a tip and they will ensure you do not move a muscle all day! Drinks to your sun loungers etc.
Arrived in Egypt the airport was fine no problems like ive heard. Visas are easy to get you fill in a card on the plane, if you are travelling outside Sinia you need to pay £12 and have your card stamped like everyone else. The hotel is about 30mins from the airport. We arrived at the hotel, reception was fine no problems we were shown to our room which was really nice, it was massive. You get a fridge in your room that is stocked all the time, rooms are cleaned everyday housekeepers are excellent. You do not need to take towels with you these are supplied. W e were located by the main swimming pool where the waterslides are. If you miss breakfast which is served until 10.30 there is a poolside food bar which is excellent the food is fresh everything is clean, chefs are there all day checking the food which was everyday different, it was really good. Coffee, tea, cold drinks all available at the pool bar. They had just opened the 24hr bistro when we arrived 24hr food which was also excellent. French Restaurant excellent, Italian Rest excellent, fish rest excellent, main rest food excellent, all food was excellent. You do need to book the restaurants apart from main, you just book in at reception for what time you want. Suprise suprise the beer was very good we were shocked, the wine is not so good but that was probably all that i have to moan about. The reef was breathtaking, ive never been snorkelling before but it was the best thing i have ever done before on holiday, the fish are amazing you dont need to go snorkelling to see them just stand on the hotels jetty. I could go on and on about this hotels good points, ask any questions you like. Booking up for next year cant wait
We were amongst the 1st batch of guests for Thomson in the 1st week of June after what seemed to have been long delays with construction at this new hotel. The hotel is close to the airport no noise though between the Sheraton and Crown Plaza.
