Just returned after spending a fantastic week at the Coral Sea Splash Resort with my husband and 12yr old daughter. We'd upgraded to a family room so our daughter could have her own room and we were excited to find not only did she have this but her own bathroom and another room that she used as a dressing room though another 2 people could have slept in it ! As a family we had 3 flat screen tvs and 2 balconies with comfortable wicker furniture on each. Our room was kept spotless by our housekeeping guy, Ahmed who also had a flair for "towel art" which amused us each day! We had fab views of the waterpark and though close to reception and restaurants we never heard any noise. The air conditioning worked really well.
The on-site waterpark has a main pool that is lively where activites such as aquarobics and volleyball take place organised by the enthusiatic,fun,hardworking entertainment team. There is a more peaceful wave pool and a great lazy river. Younger children enjoyed a shaded shallow pool area complete with it's own slides and a fun pirate ship full of water jets, sprays and a massive bucket that soaks you but only after a bell warns of its imminent tipping ! Our 12 yr old enjoyed the bigger waterslides which include a Boomerango, Spacebowl and toboggan style racing slides. There are enough sunloungers despite guests leaving their towels on them hours before using them. We did have to move them around a bit so we could be together but the pool staff leap into action the minute they see that you need help, finding you a parasol and positioning it perfectly. The whole pool area was very clean, we saw the water being tested for cleanliness and it feels a very safe environment. The lads helping on the fantastic Flowrider are kind at helping the novices and extremely skilled at riding with small kiddies to give them a safe but fun experience. The hotel grounds are green and amazingly lush when you appreciate how little rain they get.
We thought the main buffet restaurant was fabulous with different dinner choices every night. Breakfast was an extravaganza with everything imaginable including omelette, pancake & waffle stations. If guests wanted to stay around the pools for lunch, two fast food type kiosks were available or you could return to the main restaurant where once again the choice was huge ! We noticed staff monitoring the temperature of the food which ensured we all stayed well. The waiters worked so hard and were welcoming and friendly especially Mahmoud who anticipated our every need. We also ate in the American Diner (one visit per week included ) which is a la carte and made a change. We ran out of time so didn't try the Asian restaurant but the menu looked good. The soft drinks included were Coke,Fanta & Sprite and were served from small bottles so were always fizzy. There were also self service drinks stations where an orange, apple & hibiscus juice were available. These tasted like a combination of fresh juice and squash. The ice-cubes are perfectly safe as made from bottled water. We attended a cocktail party where the lovely hotel manager and Natalie, the guest relations manager, enquired after our stay and asked for ways to improve this already lovely hotel. They explained how all the food is cooked in bottled water to avoid any bugs.
My husband & daughter enjoyed a parasailing trip and the snorkelling trip was well run and stunning. Think I've covered everything though no doubt I'll remember something else by which to praise this lovely hotel.
