Fantastic place. The staff is very nice and helpful - we had a little problem with our shower and it was fixed within an hour. We had our rooms cleaned every day, and every time we found a little masterpiece made with towels :) Everyone is smiling and greeting you as you pass them. The pool is big and clean, and you can enjoy aquagym or water polo organised by the best animators from Alpiclub. They also organise shows every night and a lot of activities during the day. There's not the biggest choice of food (for me it was enough), but it's all fresh and very tasty. The reef is beautiful and we enjoyed snorkeling, especially in the morning, when we were mostly by ourselves, just with a fantastic lifeguard, who usually opened the pier just for us. We had a lot of fun and relax, which is exactly what we counted on.

One of the best vacations. The animation team and staff here will make your vacation worth the money. It’s older hotel but they are doing a lot of work to make it better. Rooms are big enough - one bad thing is that you have to pay for wifi. I really recommend going to the shows at the hotel theatre - you will definitely enjoy it thanks to great animation team. Also the food here is really good for 4* hotel and if you like pasta you will enjoy it here too. Beach is clean, water is really shallow but you can enter deeper waters from the jetty.

Excellent place for lazy vacation. Great restaurant, professional staff, great waiters. Due to pandemic, seafood restaurant LUNA was closed but seafood, fish was served everyday at the main restaurant. Great pizza from stone stove served at the beach bar. Good bottled local beer. The animation level is also high - yoga, pilates, belly dancing, playing team sport games at the beach. We came wothout kids, so we can't estimate the level of kids care. The resort is run by an Italian manager and he pays great attention to quality of food and service. The hotel is clean, most of the rooms face the beach. There is a looong bridge, about 450 m running to the edge of the reef which is outstanding! The life guard is always there watching people. Diving centre nearby, the representative available in the hotel everyday. We would come again.

Hotel vždy pečlivě vybírám, tentokrát jsem tento vybral kvůli potápění v Marsa Shagra a byl to nejhorší hotel v Egyptě, který podle stádia rozkladu pamatuje ještě Tutanchámona.
Na recepci neochotný až nepřátelský personál, po příjezdu nedostanete ani snídani, kterou jsme jinak dostali v jiných hotelech vždy a všude.
Pláž: cca 100m do moře je tak max. 40cm vody, na plavání musíte na molo a to jen pokud nejsou vlny.
Jídlo: takový průměr v Egyptě.
Pokoje: dveře nemají zespodu žádné těsnění a je tam obrovská díra takže počítejte s návštěvami mravenců, kobylek a škvorů.
Nejhorší je koupelna, vedle záchodu je odpadní kanál, takže je v koupelně a na pokoji cítit extrémní zápach výkalů a to i v jiných pokojích.
Pool bar: opět nejhorší alkohol v Egyptě, vím, že se používají no name značky, ale toto se nedalo pít ani ředěné.
Bazén: jediné pozitivum na tomto hotelu, čistý a neponičený.
V Egyptě jsme byli už asi po osmé a vím, že jsou nižší standardy, ale tento hotel už nikdy.
Silně nedoporučuji!!

I always choose a hotel carefully, this time I chose this one for diving in Marsa Shagra and it was the worst hotel in Egypt, which according to the stage of decay still remembers Tutankhamun.
Unwilling to unfriendly staff at the reception, upon arrival you don't even get breakfast, which we otherwise got in other hotels always and everywhere.
Beach: approx. 100m into the sea, there is a maximum of 40cm of water, for swimming you have to go to the jetty and only if there are no waves.
Food: so average in Egypt.
Rooms: the door has no seal from the bottom and there is a huge hole so expect visits from ants, grasshoppers and crickets.
The worst is the bathroom, next to the toilet there is a drain, so there is an extreme smell of feces in the bathroom and in the room, even in other rooms.
Pool bar: again the worst alcohol in Egypt, I know no name brands are used but this was undrinkable even diluted.
Pool: the only positive thing about this hotel, clean and undamaged.
We have been to Egypt for about the eighth time and I know the standards are lower, but this hotel never again.
I strongly do not recommend!!

The only thing I want to say about this hotel is that all the staff is very unprofessional and rude…they are not shy to ask you money for EVERYTHING! And not a small money!
Also they treat you like a prisoner, you have to sign paper and inform them about every your step. Nobody from the other hotel can not even step on the beach or to come to ask something on the reception.
Hotel is ok, beach is a bit too flat, location in the middle of nowhere and breakfast every day same and poor but all those things are very small compare to the rude staff…

The resort itself is nice, small and quite in a good shape.
The reef is beautiful, maybe a little small.
Which totally ruins it is the staff. This is our third stay in Egypt, we know that the service here is "special". But still.
First sight-we came at 10a.m., the announced stay started at 2 p.m. The reception guy asked for $10 or we have to wait. As I hear, everyone got the same offer. They probably had the rooms ready but still they would let us to wait.
The cleaning guy came everytime after the breakfast when we were in a room-aparently to obtain extra money. We have 1.5 yr old son, he wants to nap in that time. I wasnt able to explain to him. So he made 2 cleanings by 10 days. I am use to get koney to him but I ve never been asked before he did anything.
The best of best- ice cream guy wanted us to buy an i e crram, we politely refused and were called by "sh.t and f..k". The said to my wife more time when he met her. I had to be very noisy to stop him.
Food is not bad, quite without spice and salt.

My stay at Blue reef 7 nights , this review is with complete honesty from an Egyptian guests view,  (1) They welcomed us very nicely  and the room was nice and tidy and we had an ocean view which looked amazing, the housekeeping service helped us alot and made us happy with his towel designs 😄. (2) The restaurant has an amazing variety of foods🥘🌮🌯 and very close to the egyptian food too but sadly the chef who is supposed to check after everyone, the uniform was dirty and they weren't wearing gloves 🧤and there was no hair cover. (3) The swimming pool is very very and I mean very dirty, the floor and the walls of the pool was basically green bec of how dirty it is. (4)The people who are responsible for the marina were very nice and the reef is absolutely amazing and has different variety of corals. (5) The resort lacks of activities, not even the pool has any activities like any other resort! And the people who are responsible for these activities are a Italian company, they were super rude and racist towards and the activities that were only available were for Italians only. My daughter who is about 6 years old was trying to participate with them in their activities but they denied her  and told her no since she isn't Italian and they told us if we have a problem with that then we should talk to the reception and i did talk with the reception about it and he said that he will talk to the manager about it and that the italian animation team is only here for the Italians even though I'm a guest and that this hotel is Italian themed, I replied that Im a guest like any other person in this resort and after my compalint they started cleaning the pool which took 2 days straight and nobody was allowed inside it and the staffs way around us changed and the Italian animators started doing activities by the beach and pool and they decided to get a new animation team to the resort that dont treat you differently just because your not Italian. This is the worst resort I have ever been to and the worst 7 nights and I will not come again.

I recently stayed at the Blue Reef resort in Egypt and had an excellent experience. The cleanliness of the facilities was top-notch, and I was impressed by the professionalism and punctuality of the animation team. As a vegetarian, I was delighted to find a variety of delicious food options available to me. Overall, I highly recommend the Blue Reef for its cleanliness, attentive staff, and excellent dining options for vegetarians.

I recommend this hotel for everybody. Kids have their mini club with games and mini disco in the evening, young adults have parties in the night if they want and funny games during the day and older adults can go for stretching or aqua gym with best animation team ever. Everybody in the hotel are really friendly and nice, you can go to local markets or to the fish restaurant opposite the hotel. The food here is good, the best pancakes i have ever had for snack! Drinks for free during the whole day and barmans will do for you any mixing you want. Gardens are nice with flowers,pool is clean and sea is really nice. Its a lagoon safe for small children and for snorkeling you have to go on the bridge to go in the deep sea.Rooms are always clean with safe and fresh water. Animation team is really good they play games with you and make your stay even better and happier. Night shows are funny and interesting, every night is different. Fire show,tanora,comedy show etc. I was here 3times and i really like this hotel.
