Holiday Village Red Sea

This year-round hotel offers up a huge pool, a week’s worth of restaurants, and an Aerial Adventure course that sits right on the beach.

This place is pulled up next to the Red Sea – the giant pool overlooks the water, and you’ll find restaurants and an Aerial Adventure course parked on the sand.

There are loads of activities and kids’ clubs for little ones, plus an impressive line-up of evening shows, parties and games.

Outstanding! Wonderful! Brilliant!

Just returned from our 6th visit and once again had a fantastic holiday. This is a great hotel but what makes it so wonderful are the team of staff who go out of their way to provide 5* service each and every day. They work so hard to ensure you have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Our room was spacious and clean and kept that way everyday by Block 7 cleaner Ayman. His excellent towel art was very much appreciated by us all and the fuss he made for our daughters birthday made her day! As we had a swim-up room, drinks, songs and chat were delivered by Gamal 6-7 times a day. These were especially welcome due to the temperature and if you were not around he always took the chance and brought you your usual drinks and left them on your patio table! As a returning family we used the VIP breakfast and Nady and his team always made sure we were fed and watered, even if we made it just at closing time! Special mention to Osama, Sayed, Mohamed and Nady. Excellent variety of food in the Buffet Dine Around restaurant, it was so hard to make a choice once you had a look at what was on offer! Waiter drinks service also included in the Dine Around and service always with a smile and few magic tricks! Special mention to Mohamed, Mohamed and Ahmed Basuoni. I cannot praise the a la carte restaurants highly enough! We used Sari twice (nice refurbishment), Bamboo twice, Meditaraneo five times, Village Diner once and we also went for a lovely meal at the Stone Grill. Special mention to Nady, Hany, Hany, Hany, Saied, Karim, Wael, Mohamed, Ahmed and Hassan. My daughter had her birthday meal at the Village Diner and special thanks go to Ahmed Basuoni for making it a night to remember. We used the Sports Bar and Hesham and Mohamed kept us entertained! At the Lobby Bar, Mostafa, Mahmoud and Andrew were always there with drinks and friendly banter. On the beach, Hany and Bassam made sure your fluid levels were kept topped up! Special mention needs to be made about James and the Adult only bar. What a fantastic addition to the hotel. The refurbishment of this bar is excellent too! James kept us all laughing, singing and dancing while our kids were enjoying themselves with their friends in their clubs! This is a huge improvement from previous years, make sure you keep him! Drinks at the Vue Bar provided by Gamal, Hussein and Mohamed. Many thanks to our friend Ibrahim for our wonderful canvases, we love them! I appreciated the cold bottles of water given to you just before you got on the coach to go to the airport. The scales you could use to weigh your cases, the line up of cases per Airport and the music playing while you waited for your coach were excellent additions this year. Many thanks to Ahmed EL Sayed for coming to wave us off!! All in all a superb holiday! Booked already for July 2015 and waiting for better prices for October 2015! Lastly, did we tip? Absolutely! Did we do it because we felt pressured to? Absolutely not! We tipped due to the level of personal service we were given.More

Only just ok

We have been to Egypt Red Sea resorts many times but this was the first time we visited this hotel. The initial impression you got when you checked in at reception was ok - and that was it for the rest of the holiday - just ok! Our previous hotels had lush reception areas and huge plush seating areas this was the poor relation set by previous standards. Our room was nice with a very comfy bed (probably the best part of the holiday!) so sleep quality was very good especially as the sound proofing seemed really good so you couldn't hear a thing from outside although we were in a quiet area. We asked for an interconnecting room with our daughter and partner and our grandchild and this was good. We had asked for a swim up room but they had all been taken but just over halfway into the holiday we were asked if we still wanted swim up rooms as some had become free and we moved - worth asking for if anyone reads this review and wants to stay there. Certainly they were very good to remember we had tried to book them. There were lots of theme restaurants which if you go suggest you book as soon as you get there as these are taken up very quickly. You will see that even though they say each restaurant is full, its not as on the evenings we visited they were only half full and one was almost completely empty even though we were told there were hardly any tables left when we booked! Bizarre! The main restaurant has a very good selection of food but it is huge and incredibly noisy, just like a canteen or cafeteria and no atmosphere. The main pool is large but incredibly busy, try the quiet pool at the top of the hotel if you are there without children although we don't really recommend this hotel if you are without children as it is very driven towards families with kids. The beach is good although we were bitten by sandflies a fair bit. People next to our swim up room were very upset that the beach staff kept staring at their daughters and the gentleman was threatening to lay out one of them if they continued! We found a number of staff quite rude - we've not experienced this in hotels in Egypt before, not all staff as some were very pleasant but some could not be bothered. A point to please note - do not arrange with your room cleaner to stay in your room on the last day for late check out as he will take your money and you won't see him on your last day as it is a scam and you will be asked to check out at the normal time and the management 'know nothing about your late check out' unless you book it and pay at reception. Also my wife was quite offended by our cleaner as he intimated 'other' services which had nothing to do with cleaning the room! I guess some English women have succumbed to an Egyptian cleaner as otherwise they wouldn't try it on! On the whole the experience was only just ok - nothing special! Suggest try other hotels as we have which are much better for a similar price.More

Another perfect holiday

This is our 7th time to the holiday village. Each year it's just gets better and better .. When we arrived at 10:30 pm they kept the dinner hall open . Checked us in quickly we got up graded for free and got a room next door to family as requested .. Suitcases arrived quickly at room .. Good varied choice of food . The a la carte rest restaurants were superb . The pool and bar staff work so hard. They work Very long hours but are always cheery and smiley , nothing is ever to much .. Plenty of sun beds to go rounds , swimming pools cleaned every day .. I don't know how any one can find fault with this hotel . I'm sure we will be booking our 8th visit soon ..More

First time.

Just back from are first time at the hotel and Egypt. We will be returning in the nere future. Where do I start big rooms air con that works well most dont. Cleaned dayley we got block 11 good pool and sea views. The food is better then I was hoping for lots of choices 5 good A al carte retardants plus the stone grill this is to die for. Big pools with water slides for the kids the staff are some of the most help full I have ever seen. It's not perfect there are the odd paint chip here and there but it's a year round hotel so I think you have to let that go. All in all clean on the beach nice pools and food good staff only down side for we is its pricing I think it's too expensive.More
