SENTIDO Reef Oasis Senses Resort
staying at the amazing Reef Oasis after staying there from the 21st – 28 Sept
Upon arrival I was asked to sit in the lobby while they checked myself in and while I waited they brought a cold towel and a small cocktail
After this I was checked in and upgraded to the Sentido Section in a Pool View Room 1226 which was a lovely room.
With everything which is going on just now, the hotel was very quite which was a shame for such a lovely hotel, but even with the hotel being very quite it did not have a lack in service from any of the staff.
I was in Room 1226 which was of good sized and has 2 slightly bigger than single bed, a free mini bar which did also include water and the room also had a walk in shower. The room was well maintained. You do also get a safe included in your room free of charge.
The pool has a large number of pools spread-out along the resort so there was plenty of space for everyone, the pools also were not too cold so were nice to get into and cool down in from the lovely heat (high 30’s!)
While I was there as well at around 11.30am the pool staff also bring you a cold towel to help you cool down
During your stay you also get free pool / beach towels.
The Aqua Park
The hotel has a lovely aqua park 9 adult slides and slides for the children.
2 of the slides are ring slides and the one with the ’round bowl’ is amazing and very fast, I had allot of fun each day going down this one!
As the hotel is quite at the moment, the Aqua Park is only open from 1-5pm.
There is a good choice of restaurants to pick from however as the hotel was quite some did only operate very other day.
You always had a good choice of food at the hotel, during my stay I had dinner in ‘Mo’s’ which is just along from the Sentido Reception, during my week all apart from 1 night was a set menu but the food was still very good.
During the hotel I also had dinner in the Cactus restaurant which is a BBQ restaurant and you can pay an extra 100 Egyptian Pounds to have a delicious steak (I can highly recommend this)
I must say, the entertainment team do a great job a big hello and thank you to Lucas and Alexander oh and Rosa, you do a great job with the hotel being so quite and even in the evenings it was very nice that you still continued the evening shows even with only half a dozen to a dozen people watching you, it must of been very hard for you all with so little people to watch you and hope the management will give the 3 of you as well as the rest of your team some very big praise for this and sorry you are going back home soon Rosa!
For one of the nights the entertainment team also put on a ‘Fire Show’ this was held this time at the Sentido Patio Bar but the show was amazing, you all done a great job!
The Dive Centre
The hotel has got its own PADI Approved Dive Centre which is great, all the staff at the Dive Centre are lovely to chat to and I also managed to complete my Padi Open Water Course while on the holiday so thank you!
Some Great Staff!
I must say a massive thank you to Ibyahim, Bassem and Mohamed from the Patio Bar, the 3 of you do an amazing job and without you my holiday would not of been anywhere as good. Thank you for the great drinks, food and chat I would hope that the management team when they do see this review will personally give you a thank you as well, as you deserve it for all the great hard work you do, so thank you
As the hotel is so massive during the day you can get a shuttle bus from the Sentido Reception which will take you to the beach (this is about a 10-15 minute walk) which is a great idea.
The hotel is just amazing, the staff do a great job to maintain all the gardens to ensure the hotel is always looking stunning.
I am sad the hotel was so quite but due to some of the other countries not yet traveling back to Egypt this is why and I am sure soon enough the hotel will be back to being much more busy
The staff cant do enough for you while you are staying there and are always happy to help you and I was also able to arrange for a late checkout room until 6pm with no problem and they even called me 15 minutes before then to come and collect myself and my case back to reception which was a nice touch
The hotel is only about 20 minutes from the airport with no drop offs at other hotels so is not too far to go if you wish to travel to SOHO or Nama Bay
Thank you to everyone at the hotel for a lovely holiday and I will be sure to come back next year!
