This super-sized beachfront complex has got the lot – bars, restaurants, a bumper crop of activities, and a pool for every day of the week.
The big attraction at this place has to be the pools – there’s everything from lazy Jacuzzi® ones to action-packed affairs with waterslides.
The list of activities ticks off things like 10-pin bowling, high ropes and football, while a buffet and a trio of theme restaurants sort out hunger pangs.

Had a great holiday at this hotel. Every one from the minute we walked through the door were exceptionally helpful. We were in room 1216 and our maid was so nice she couldn't do enough for us. Food was excellent drinks were ok but wish there was more varied cocktails. Now for the entertainment staff who worked there socks off keeping us entertained although a bit loud at times as we are grandparents the kids loved them. We had no problem getting 6 sun beds although we had to get up at 6. We sat at the jacuzzi pool as the main pool was busy and very slippy. Would we come back no, not because we didn't enjoy it we loved it but as you get older a bit quieter and not so much kids. It was my son and family's second time and he has certainly recommended it to many friends.More
This was the fourth Holiday Village hotel we have stayed at and overall I would have to say it was the best. A pity we could only go for a week this time as we could easily have stayed longer. A short 20 minute transfer with a very well organised and speedy check in. We have two young boys aged 4 and 6 so we opted for a den room with sliding door dividers to separate the kids side of the room from ours. There is a wall mounted flat screen TV in both sides of the room and a chalk board on the kids wall which the cleaners and kids left messages for during our stay! First impressions were that the room seemed on the small side. This was however in comparison to our last holiday at the Egypt Holiday Village where we upgraded the room so a little unfair to compare the two. The size of the room was not a problem however and was more than adequate for our stay. It was clean with plenty of storage space. The bathroom had both a bath and shower, again, if I had to be picky it was probably on the small side but adequate for our needs. The grounds of the hotel are huge with beautifully kept plants, flowers and grass areas to explore. The hotel obviously prides itself on cleanliness and this was evident everywhere. There are a number of swimming pools suitable for all ages, 2 shallow kids pools, 1 main pool which is also split into a smaller shallower section for kids. An adult pool with jacuzzi pools and decking area for sunbathing and a slide pool with 4 various size water slides. Again, all ages seem to be catered for here and both our boys really enjoyed the smaller slides. Food at this Holiday Village was absolutely stunning. We have stayed at some really good all inclusive hotels around the world but I must say the food here in the buffet restaurant was the best. We only stayed for a week but the choice was superb. Most of the food is cooked by the chefs behind the food counters which was a nice touch. Invariably being a family of four we generally have at least one member of the family suffering with the "deli belly" during our holidays but this is the first time that none of us had any complaints in that area. Again I can only assume this is down to the high standards of cleanliness. The day time snack bar was also very good, fresh pizzas made and cooked in the outdoor pizza oven were a real treat with different toppings each day. Also liked the toasted sandwiches for a quick bite to eat from the chill out bar during the day. Staff in the restaurants seem very happy, your glass will not stay empty for more than a minute or two and we were particularly impressed with the fact that the waiters remembered our drinks orders from the previous day when we had only been there for a couple of days! No mean feat considering the amount of diners in the restaurant. It was these little touches which impressed us most and the fact that the staff made a real effort with the children. We did not use the A La Cart restaurants during our stay as the menu choice for the children was quite poor in comparison to what they could eat in the main buffet restaurant. ie, Italian restaurant - chips, nuggets or meatballs type affair and the same in the Indian/Chinese. This is one area where I think an improvement could be made and I think the Egypt Holiday Village does this really well. It is nice to have that dining out experience whilst in the hotel especially if you are staying somewhere for a couple of weeks where there isn't much going on outside of the hotel. The town of Sarigerme was a bit of a disappointment to be honest. It's one road of the usual fake handbag and replica football kits with a handful of bars/restaurants. It was only a 5 minute taxi journey from the hotel so no great stretch to see it. It is much cheaper than the shops in the hotel (half price for most things) so if you do need to pick up some tatt whilst you are there then it's worth a look to save some money. Entertainment in the hotel was very good, the kids especially liked the "HV's Got Talent" and the Festival Gig night with the rep's belting out some classic festival tunes! The kids used the kids club most days we were there which was undercover for the 6 year old and indoors for the 4 year old so gave them a welcome break from the scorching afternoon sun. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel to families and we will almost definitely be returning in the future. Thanks for a great holiday.More
Food was great. Pools amazing. Staff lovely. Rooms gorgeous. Just had an amazing week. Wish we'd stopped for two. The only thing to be aware is that the wooden decking around some of the pools gets really hot so wear something on your feet. Can't wait to go back. More
We visited last month, we were a bit unsure at the resort seemed to be more for families, however once we got there we have a fantastic time, yes there are kids but the resort is that big, it didn't bother us. No complaints from us, we are actually thinking of going back later in the year.More

Just home after a wonderful weeks at holiday village. Please ignore the negative reviews and travel with an open mind and happy heart. The hotel is huge, beautifully kept, and very clean. Help and advice available if needed. Check in quick and painless, taken to our suite which was cool and clean. Pools are amazing, please visit and enjoy the beach, bar staff friendly, restaurant staff great with the children. Spa beautiful, do that first! Entertainment team great, and we loved the late evening atmosphere. Tips I wish I had been told........ Do not over pack! I wore 20percent of what I packed. Lived in flip flops and tee shirts, just take cool loose clothes. Really, you will wear swimming stuff all day and shorts and t at night. Hairdryer available, don't take one. No iron, take travel one Take milk powder for morning coffee in room Take eye make up remover for melting mascara Please cover yourself in Sun cream, every time you get out of the pool To make it fun for everyone: Family resort' so expect children every where if you are adult only family, enjoy the quieter pools and bars and the beach. Do not get cross and tut at the children around the children's pool.. Really....rough tough 10 year old having water fights in the baby pool...?? Parents be responsible eh... If going to the beach wear flip flops, sand very hot, take water and snacks and Sun cream. Great 'swap shop' idea involving, saved my life a few times, picked up books, magazines, last day Sun cream etc swooped lilo books flip flops and Sun hats. Use 'basket tours' ask for Kenan. He was wonderful. You must do the 12 island tour, the best experience ever. Do go into the village at least twice, once in the day for a break and shopping, ( ladies, please visit the handbag doctor -' Apollon emperium' for t h e best fakes. Amazing mulberry and Prada bags purchased and when at home, checked against the real thing and there is very little difference! Now Wish I had bought more!) Go again in the evening and enjoy the food and atmosphere in 21 street or the dolphin bar. Be aware -slippery around pool area. Don't be a typical British and q for chips while moaning about the heat. If that is how you feel, go to Blackpool. Parents, be responsible..swimming nappies are not that expensive, spares can be found at the swop shop if you are struggling. But the pools being closed for cleaning ruins others people's day. Try all the food, try different food, I have discovered I like stuffed aubergine and carrot juice and Turkish delight. The food is incredible, please don't stick to an English diet, expand your mind a n d taste buds and waistline! We had the most amazing time, the staff, the locals, the country are so lovely so hospitable and friendly. A big shout out to our room maid, Aysal (thank you for the flowers)and the lady in spa who looked after my sunburnt shoulders so sweetly. Thanks also to the entertainment team who were great fun, and to kenan and basket tours who opened our eyes to the wonderful country around us. All in all my first time...definitely not my last...More
