“Fantastic hotel with great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

I visited this hotel in February this year and it was even better than I expected. I was a little bit dubious about booking it because of the water park thinking it would be noisy, full of kids etc. but even though I'm now well over 30 it was really good fun having the slides, pools etc. on site. The room was really spacious, immaculately clean, cool with all the facilities you'd need, and the maids usually left a 'creation' made out of the clean towels which made us laugh! All the staff in the hotel were very friendly, polite, and couldn't do enough for you. The entertainment team were fantastic putting on various activities during the day around the pool, and on a night in one of the bars. You had roughly the same things on from one week to the next but it was still good fun. We were there for 11 nights so didn't have too many repeats! The only negative thing about the hotel is the mosquitoes. Really do take note of other people's advice about avoiding them! Myself I only got bitten once on the last day, but there were a few people that arrived on the same evening as us and by the morning of the welcome meeting looked like they'd been half eaten alive!! As soon as you get there go to the local pharmacy and get the repellent called 'Off' in an orange can, that's what was recommended to us by the rep and it seemed to work. As far as outside the hotel goes there's not a huge amount to do apart from go have a wander along the shops and other hotels or go on trips. The scuba diving / snorkelling was amazing, like being in a tropical fish tank, although the sea was freezing! Well worth getting cold though. The star gazing trip including camel ride and dinner with the Bedouin was OK, a little disappointing maybe but good nonetheless. Would recommend the hotel at that time of year before it gets too hot or too busy, well worth it.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up away from the pools will be quieter during the day if you want a siesta

We Just got back from this lovely hotel on Monday 23rd of June.
And we must stress it was the best holiday we have ever had!
First of all just want to say a very big thank you to Caroline Scott-Fayik who is
the hotel's Guest relation. Carolin is a pure asset to this hotel,
She is a total gem, she really looked after us and made our stay very special.
Also thanking Khaled Morsey in reception who had been very helpful to us and is a great person.Mohammed in reception,The chef from the main buffet restaurant who's name we cannot recall. The cleaner sheriff, Nabeel the pool side waiter, Magdy the waiter in the buffet restaurant, and mahmood the hotel camera man who took some amazing pictures of us. And the rest of the staff who work very hard to make your holiday more enjoyable.

We had a swim up room which was just icing on the cake, as the weather was so hot we would
just get out of bed and just jump into the pool. (We can just get usto that) lol.
As it was my partners birthday we had a lovely Birthday cake sent in to the room courtesy of Caroline Scott-Fayik, From Guest Relations. (Thank you So So much)
The cake was yummy. lol

The rides in the water park are totally amazing.
The food in the hotel was very good too, with a various different delicacies to choose from.
The American diner was fab, with nice juicy steaks, and other dishes to choose from.
We did not like the Asian restaurant particularly to much it was ok.

There was a lovely bar-b-que night on Saturday were the chickens and kebabs were awesome.

The staff just can't do enough for you here, they go out of they way to make your stay
plesant and comfortable as possible. And this is why this hotel is number 1.
We will definitely be returning to this hotel and also recommend to everybody.

The beach across the road from holiday village is like from the movies, with a clear blue sea and hammock beds, Just amazing.
We did parasailing there as an excursion, and we were clubing nearly every night.
We wnet to Pasha night club for a foam party it is ok, but hard rock cafe in Nabq bay is wicked with a R&B night every wednesday or thursday We can't remember to well. We also went to the Pataya Beach party which was also ok. There is lots and lots to do in Sharm depending what you go for. Shoh square is a must with lots of shops clubs n shisha bars.

Overall the hotel, location, and Sharm itself is very very nice.

As we went as a couple we just made the most of the night life.
And can't wait ro return back.

And finally thank you everyone who sent us advice via trip advisor befor our holiday.
It was very usefull.

(Amy) Ameena n Aslam.

Room Tip: We had a swim up room 2110 which was very good.

We are just back from a 2 week stay at this hotel, I was here last year and decided to come back.

As usual it was brilliant and we can't really fault it.

Had an amazing time and it was made better by the staff aswell - The lifeguards at the main pool were brilliant fun - Ahmeer especially. They made so many more people enjoy there holidays with the fun they have.

On arrival the reception staff remembered us from last year and throughout our holiday they were very helpful. Again they work so hard.

Staff

The staff work so hard to keep the rooms clean,hotel clean ect and work relentless hours.

Nabil who does drinks round the pool at day and bar at night works so hard and is a genuine hard grafter - He also remembered us from last year aswell and looked after us whilst here again he added to the overall experience making its so much better. Also never letting our cups get empty :)

Restaurant - The staff again work so hard to keep everyone happy. Ahmed is brilliant always bringing us drinks when he seen us coming in ect

Food -

Brilliant - Not one complaint they do food to suit everyone from chicken/hotdogs ect to salads so nobody can complaint about that.

There is a BBQ every lunch time aswell which is awesome.

Entertainment

Emma J, Ryan, Courtney and the others are brilliant - Keeping everyone entertained all day - I don't know what people expect from entertainment as its not Hollywood.
The pool games during the day flo rider challenege/water polo was amazing banter and the same with the quiz just all a bit of fun.

Also they took the time to get to know the guests and speak to them which was nice.

They held a fun day when we were there aswell to raise money for charity - We paid in money to get the staff gunged.

At night they did the best they could with some quality acts aswell - Ricky K from Britain's Got Talent was brilliant.

They put on their own shows aswell which again was funny as hell and just a good laugh which is what its supposed to be.

Holiday Advisors - The 3 of them were brilliant - Helping us book our trip to Cairo, Go karts ect They have a wealth of information and are more than happy to share it and advise you on what to do next ect

All in all it was a 10 out of 10 holiday and I'm fussy as hell.

PS - I read a review about the staff asking for tips and NOT ONCE did this happen or did I see it happening.

Advice - Go to Cairo - Yes its a bit expensive but its worth it. Something we will NEVER forget - Getting to go inside a pyramid and also getting to see Tutan Khamuns mask.

Ask for a room in block 5 - Its right next to the pool.

I will be going back again.

Room Tip: Choose Block 5 or ask for a poolside room.

Just got back from a week at Coral Sea aqua club - had a fabulous time. All the staff were so welcoming and friendly. The guys who manned the water park and lazy river were great fun.

The waiters and staff in the Restaurants were so funny especially Ahmed who had such a great sense of humour. The beach across the road through holiday village is lovely too with free sun beds and large swinging hammocks and the snorkelling experience is great.

One negative (which we didn't mind but the kids did) was the wifi which was a bit 'hit and miss'

We will definately be returning again as the desert quad biking and camel ride were off limits just in case due to the situations over there.

All in all a fabulous holiday

Had an amazing time!
The holiday was totally made by the animation team. Manchester was always so happy and nice to see around the hotel and his handstands are amazing- he is a lovely man with great hugs. The other animations are also great and so funny, Julia (even though she is rubbish at darts) and bob (who always carrys a hairdryer if you need one) are always in such good moods and great to have a laugh with.

Amazing holiday! Make sure you go there :)

We stayed at the coral sea from 28th May-June 8th. We had high hopes based on the glowing reviews on trip advisor. I'm afraid to say that we were pretty dissapointed.
For a 4* hotel this place was just lacking in too many areas.

The good parts: the waterpark is amazing and my son loved it
The rooms are very spacious. We didn't pay extra for a swim up room but it was fine - dont think we would have used the swim up pool much as we were round the kids pools most of the time
The beach across the road was lovely
The weather was perfect.
The asian and american restaurants were good

the bad parts
When we arrived we were shown to our rooms , our sons bed wasnt made up- it was late and we had to go on a hunt for some bedding for him.
I thought that the general cleanliness of the common areas of the hotel was poor. I was surprised based on the reviews on here saying how clean everywhere was. The chairs in the restaurant are absolutely filthy and the cushions around the entertainment areas were stained....not that inviting to want to sit on. Our balcony seats had filthy cushions on and there was something very suspect on one of the backs of our curtains.
Service in the main restaurant was a bit hit and miss - there was a distinct lack of spoons, especially at Breakfast time and we had to sometimes track down the tea and coffee even when there were waiters there with pots of it in their hands.
The kids entertainment in the evening is unnecessarily loud, to the point that you cant have any kind of conversation with the person next to you
My husband and i both got ill...luckily for my husband it was a 2 day thing, for me it lasted for 8 days out of an 11 day holiday. I cant help feeling that my Illness was probably down to poor sanitation in the restaurants or toilet areas. Not necessarily the hotels fault if other guests don't wash their hands, but most certainly not down to the heat as was suggested by the thomson reps. I ended up with antibiotics while i was over there - it was evident that others were also suffering the same things too as there were quite a few people walking round with pills/re hydration sachets. This resulted in me not being able to enjoy the holiday as much as i had hoped as i had to give the restaurants a wide birth. You do expect to be ill in a new country for a couple of days as your body adjusts, this was different and not something that i would ever want to have to endure again!

So, all in all, we had high hopes and were left feeling dissapointed and not having had value for money or a particularly relaxing time. Would we return? No.

Room Tip: Unless you like to spend a lot of time in your room the swim up rooms are a bit of a waste of money.

Dear Guests,

Thank you for choosing to spend your holiday at the Coral Sea Aqua Club Resort and for taking the time to post your review about your stay; we greatly appreciate comments made by our guests and welcome every opportunity to improve. Firstly on a positive note, many thanks for your kind words about the waterpark, the rooms', and the ala carte restaurant standards standards.

I am sorry to read that you were ill during your holiday. While holidaying in new places, some people may experience traveler’s diarrhea due to being exposed to temperatures and food custom different from what their body system is accustomed to. We therefore encourage guests to visit the clinic at the start of these symptoms for consultancy and it is usually cleared up within 24hrs, if not less, using simple gastro medication. In most cases, guests who stay ill for days are the ones who either resort to self medication or visit the pharmacy for medicine. Moreover, I am sorry about the service at the main restaurant; this should not have been the case. I can advise you, however, that your feedback has been shared with the concerned department and necessary corrective action will be taken accordingly.

I hope that you might consider returning in order to experience the full range of what we can offer. In the meantime, if I can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Stayed here for a week at the beginning of June. Hotel is so nice, room was huge and comfy and air con worked brilliantly.
Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. I ended up spending a few nights in hospital and the hotel sent flowers to the hospital which was a lovely gesture and showed they actually care. Food was nice. Didn't try the a la carte restaurants but they looked nice. Would recommend this hotel even for people without kids. We was a couple and had a great time.
