From the moment we arrived we felt instantly at ease as we were given a welcome drink and the friendly staff arranged for our baggage to be taken to our room and our 'all-inclusive' bands to be fitted. After a brief introductory chat about the facilities, we had a lovely meal and proceeded to have a look at the complex.
Our ground floor room had a lovely sea view and was well appointed with all the required mod-cons and was very clean and was maintained that way by the cleaning staff, with the usual 'towel animal arrangement' left on the bed each day after room service.
The food in the main restaurant was very good with a great variety of foods every night to suit every taste including a BBQ every night as well. The Wine served at dinner (red, white and rose) were all of very good quality and the cocktails in the bars very generously laced with alcohol and served expertly by friendly staff.
The hotel was only at about 35% occupancy on our visit so there were plenty of poolside and beach locations to sunbathe in the 32-35°C temperatures , tempered by a cool breeze making it really bearable.
Activities included a well appointed gym, table tennis, water polo and even a spa with sauna etc available free after 3pm every day. I attended classes in Egyptian cookery (with tasting sessions) and towel arrangement into animal shapes which were both very interesting.
The beach was very clean and the water beautifully clear. Snorkelling with stunning reefs and marine life was accessible within 100 metres from the beach.
We had a wonderful day out on the VIP boat trip to do some snorkelling and a 'try-dive Scuba experience which was fantastic.
The whole holiday was absolutely brilliant and for once I feel truly refreshed on returning from abroad as the staff, organisation and totally friendly atmosphere made it utterly relaxing and enjoyable. I would highly recommend the Iberotel Coraya Beach Resort to anyone wanting a great holiday that they can take at any pace they desire.
I hear that Thompson are cancelling flights to Marsa Alam from Manchester which is very disappointing, which would seriously affect whether I'd return or not due to having to go from Gatwick.
