From the moment we had finished the not so speedy airport customs we were greeted by Thomson rep Ahmed, we got on the coach and Ahmed spoke to us the whole way there telling us about the local area and the hotel.
When we arrived at the Hotel we were greeted with a refreshing drink. The restaurant was open waiting for us to eat, we were then shown to our room.
During our holiday.
The pool is lovely, activities in one pool, general swimming in the other pool, and even a quiet pool. The animation team were amazing, irreplaceable. Unfortunately the pool was closed a couple of times due to "health and safety reasons" but this was only occasionally.
The animation team were amazing, they couldn't have been nicer, they all spoke to you and had a laugh with you, especially Sam, Momo, Josi and Victor. They really were the best people to be with you everyday.
The lobby bar is the bar open 13:00-00:00. It's the main drink place at night. The only problem was, in the evening it was exceptionally busy, and the queue was lasting ages and a lot of the German people pushed in front of you. We tended to go down to the still open Pool bar after the evening show and get a drink from there and take it to out room.
The evening show- six days a week (not Wednesday) the animation team put on a show. At 21:30 - 22:30. The show was different every night of the week, but the same each week. Thursday was always this Friday that, the shows were good ranging from Fakir show to Dance shoes to Comedy. My personal favourite was evolution of the divas and The Comedy Show. Both of these were just great, the comedy show takes it though, that show was funnier than Michael McIntyre and Jo Brand together.
The rooms are beautiful, a king size bed for adults and two individual beds for children. One toilet and a shower. The balcony is shaded, so perfect for heat but not sun.
The room service was immaculate. We were a little bit ill during our stay (nothing the pharmacy didn't sort within 48hrs) therefore we couldn't have the cleaner come in to our room as we were in it all day. My daughter and wife spent a day in the room so I had to ask the cleaner not to clean the room that day, he instantly gave us towels and loo roll to take to our room and extra towels and some Ansee tea.
Last but not least the Red Sea. Probably the best place in the world to snorkel. Within the Coraya Bay we saw Turtle, Honeycomb Stingrays, Spotted Eagle Rays, TriggerFish, and even some jellyfish, we also saw the barracuda. It was under the floaty platform!
This was without doubt the best holiday we have had and we will certainly be coming back
