Just returned from the Coral sea Splash and all I can say is you won't want to leave. Me and my wife went for 10 nights on our honeymoon and booked a swim up room with First choice. When we arrived at the hotel after the shortest transfer I have ever had (15 minutes) we were greeted with a drink while our bags were taken off the coach. We were then checked in (nice and easy) and taken to our room with our bags by cart so no walking. When we got to the room we were really surprised, the room was way past our expectations for Egypt (king size bed, flat screen TV) and of course the swim up pool. On our fist night we went for a walk around, McDonald's,KFC,Hard Rock Cafe,TGI Fridays, Starbucks are all within a five minute walk if you want something different. On our first morning we found that our swim up pool was not on the sunny side so was a bit cold room (4104) and we asked to be moved to the sunny side as the pool gets the sun all day, which we were moved the next day which was done with no fuss at all (they even moved our bags for us) room 2104. The swim up room we booked is set 2 floors above and a bit back from the main pool so is less busy and a bit more quiet, There is a lift to the floor so don't worry about the stairs. Where the swim up rooms are there is a sun terrace with slightly better sun loungers and a bar where you are waited on by Mohamed, he is just great always making sure you have a drink, always smiling (even when he falls in the pool) cannot speak highly enough of him, he really did make our holiday extra special, just great service, Niab also looked after us around the pool.
Our room was cleaned by Bebawy everyday and we always had a nice surprise on the bed, we had swans, hearts, flowers just to name some with fresh flowers for decoration, there were always clean towels and bedding and the bathroom was always spotless. Bebawy did a great job and always had a smile, he really did put a smile on our faces.
There is a small aqua park on site with slides, a wave pool, heated pool and flo rida (a bit like a surfing machine) which is all included in your all inclusive and good fun.
The food at the Hotel is good with different themed nights every night which gave great verity and 2 a le carte (Asian and American) restaurant (the Asian was our favourite) portion sizes were large with great service (3 course meal). Service in all the restaurants was excellent with a smile, Diaa always looked after me and my wife, sitting us down, always making sure there was a drink on the table by the time we had gotten our food, could not ask for more.
Overall the hotel was great, the staff are amazing can not do enough for you, will definitely be going back later this year.
Just some tips, if you want wifi don't use the hotels but go across the road to the st George bar as they have the quickest wifi and drinks are the cheapest (£2 a pint) plus all the football is on in there :D
Don't bother changing your pounds to Egypt pounds as everywhere take UK money (£1 is worth 10 Egyptian pounds which is a better exchange rate then we get on the high street. You really don't need Egyptian pounds.
The staff at the Coral sea Splash all speak great English, better than most Brits tbh which was a really nice surprise.
Also just to point out that while we were there the hotel is all but full of British as were heard a few people from other hotel moaning about them being the only Brits at there hotels and food was more for Europeans.
Hope this helps :D
