From the minute we arrived we were spoilt with great service and made to feel very important... we usually holiday in the canaries, this is a big step up.. The transfer was perfect with the coach only dropping off at our hotel, 20min and we were at reception, we were shown to our apartment & found we had been given our requested location :) THANKYOU, the member of staff showed us around our apartment, then on leaving.. as if by magic our bags arrived :) ... we checked in early afternoon & when I returned to reception for a 2nd key card in the evening the member of staff remembered me and my room number... how.. I have no idea, what a memory... All the rooms are huge!!!! ...The bed, which I shared with my son was so big and amazingly comfy that he managed to stay over on his side (no bruises for me)... My dad had the single bed and I heard no complaints... The pillows were like clouds wish I could have brought them home. The bathroom was as big as some hotel rooms I have stayed in, walk-in shower was great but can get a little slippy so be careful. Plenty of room in the walk-in wardrobe, which includes a full length mirror (read a review that said no full length mirror), free safe, free tv, tea & coffee replenished everyday as well as 1.5litre bottles of water we requested 3 a day (as there were 2 left orginally) and that is what we were given for the rest of our stay. We didn't use the mini bar.. Our room 6105 had very good internet access (which pleased my son) right by the main pool. Need to shout out to Sayeed our cleaner, always smiling, always spoke to us if he saw us out and about..he kept our room beautifully clean and treated us to many towel art surprises, the crocodile & elephant were our favourites so a big THANKYOU to him.. Food ... how people needed to go out to the likes of Mcdonalds is beyond me, makes me wonder what people eat at home... the Main restaurant has many dishes to choose from as well as a different roast everyday (lamb, beef, duck, beef wellington etc) that you can have with veg and gravy if you like typical roast dinners (like my dad)... there is a pasta station where you can choose your ingredients & sauce, then have it cooked in front of you in minutes....pizza station where you can choose your toppings...obviously theres chips, rice etc, gratins, lasagne, casseroles, always chicken & fish also....so much more... extensive salad items, cheese's... desserts are all to die for my favourite being coconut cake...breakfast has beef bacon, beef sausages, chicken sausages, so you can still have a fry up if you like that on holiday...many cereals, yoghurt, fruit etc.... the omelette station was our favourite.. your order cooked in front of you, I always amused them as I always flinched when they flipped it :) ... come to think of it eggs in general, poached, scrambled, hard boiled... so much choice... Lunch there is the choice of main restaurant or outside bar by pool or Med restaurant... again lots of choice including salad and baked potatoes.. We ate at the Village Diner which was my favourite a'la carte, my Mexican food could have been a little spicer but the building and atmosphere were special, situated right on the beach, my son enjoyed the prawn dish and my dad very much enjoyed his steak!!! ... we also ate in the Med restaurant which again was lovely, in fact we went back there twice... we did not use the indian and Chinese a'la carte passes as my dad is not keen :) Pool - We used the main pool & activity pool area, would like to give Labieb a shout out THANKYOU, always happy and made friends with my very shy 11yr old.. even made him a hat out of towels and a robe then walked him around the pool 'Prince Adam', embarrassing for him but truly hilarious.. waiters frequently asked if you would like a drink (you wont go thirsty).. we chose to situate ourselves by the Reps hut for the music and entertainment (although we didn't join in a lot, liked to watch what's going on), however if you prefer it a bit more peaceful you can barely hear the music at the opposite end closer to the slides or you could use the quiet pool. Reps - What can I say, there's millions of them :) ...Hilarious... Highlights have to be Paige's midday quiz, Jame's aquafit, Rory in general - everytime he spoke made me laugh and the whole 'Biebergate' situation :) ... The Banter between Rich, Rory & James particularly so funny, James repeating Rich at quiz time... not annoying much :) ... would love to say a huge THANKYOU to you all for making me laugh continuously throughout my holiday!! Entertainment - Due to having a VERY shy 11yr old with us we only managed the adult bar once (when my son braved kids club) but it was fun.... the other nights we sat in the lobby bar or sports bar until younger kids activities were over then about 9.30pm onwards we watched the evening entertainment... the 2 comedy acts that were flown in were great my son loved these as they were a little risky :) ... the reps entertainment was very polished, Rich, Rory & Emmaleigh voices are very, very good... Paige dancing is excellent also.. Egyptian entertainment - Spinny Man was our favourite...AMAZING Tipping - We never felt under pressure to tip but on the occasions we did they were very gratefully received waiters both in bars and restaurants combine tips which is nice... you may be approached with bundles of pound coins that they have received in tips, if you can help change then into a note for them so that they can change it back into Egyptian pounds then please do help them (exchange wont accept coins)...if not please just say "im sorry I do not have any notes", all staff members are so polite...please be polite back. I heard on one occasion a guy from Aquarius say good morning to a family (new family, not already had Aquarius ask them about bout tours) they just kept saying 'GOODBYE' ...so rude and unnecessary I declined both Aquarius (I can't do boats) & SPA treatments early on in our holiday, no hassle, everyday we exchanged good morning etc and that's all, just friendly! We had an incident with an air-conditioning leak, I called reception and within 10min someone was there fixing it, followed by a very apologetic member of staff, it was no problem at all, these things happen.. we chose not to move rooms, all was fixed within 30min and patch on the ceiling was painted the following day whilst we were at the pool :) .. amazing service Everywhere is kept spotlessly clean, the staff truly are a credit to this hotel!!! Thankyou for a great 1st visit, we are hoping to return next easter just got to get saving :) **I recommend surf shoes for the beach/sea, the water is so warm, snorkelling is a must just off the jetty (not deep), free fun activity**More
We visited coral sea holiday village in mid march! The room was fantastic, we had a swim up pool which was great, which ment we had our own sun beds & own waiter bringing us drinks! The resturants all had a really good atmosphere & the food was lovely! Overall we had a brilliant time & would love to visit again in the future! However, I am disappointed with customer service. Whilst I was there, I had my bag stolen in the day & I reported this to the staff. Every day I went and asked staff at reception to see if on the off chance someone would have handed it in, unfortunalty not! Since returning I have emailed the hotel numerous if times asking for a confirmation email for insurance purposes only! To which I have had no reply and has left me feeling extremely disappointed, putting a downer on my holiday experience. Without a confirmation email I am unable to claim for my items which were stolen.More
We returned yesterday from an 11 night break. We had booked two swim up rooms for a party of 5 but on arrival were told that our rooms weren't available that day and had been upgraded to two interconnecting jacuizzi suites directly opposite the beach. We were a bit sceptical until we saw the rooms- enormous, stunning and with amazing views of the beach! As a veggie I usually struggle on holiday but there was a good selection of food and the salad bar and bread counter could always be relied on! What sells this hotel more than anything is the staff. We have stayed at the holiday villages in Tunisia, Turkey, Rhodes and Majorca but the staff here ( particularly the local staff) were amazing. Special credit to Mustafa from the beach bar who worked tirelessy throughout the day and then we were served by him again when we took an evening meal at La Mer seafood restaurant. They all work so hard, always polite and friendly and never do you get asked for a tip ( which we were very happy to give to those who we felt had made our holiday special). Whe used the first choice free kids club for our five and eight year olds. They loved it! The staff are great and we were particularly impressed with Becky and Becca, Rob ( I have the b-a-n-a-n-a-s song stuck in my head) and Nessa. To be honest they were all good but we didnt pick up everyone's names! If you like the holiday village format I would definitely recommend. We will go back and bring some family with us!More
We had a fantastic time here. The kids den rooms were perfect for families. The hotel staff and first choice staff after amazing and worked tirelessly to make everyone's holiday amazing. ( special mention to miles who even when not on duty spent time talking to the guests and kids). Food was fantastic in all restaurants. Can't understand anyone who can find something to complain about. Will definitely return More
Visited here 5 years ago for our honeymoon, review is rather late ! Still the memories are fresh as they were unforgettable. This was our first experience of a first choice holiday village and wasn't sure what to expect, but wow, what a place. So luxurious and grand ! Food amazing, people friendly and kids clubs perfect.More
