Amazing place

Just returned after a 2 week holiday here. Amazing place, clean, excellent choice and quality of food, the best reps and staff. Never visited before but already booked for next year. Nothing was too much trouble and we appreciated all the efforts made to ensure we had a great time. Thank you x More

Queuing in the holiday village

Recently spent 10 nights here. You had to queue for everything. The alcohol on offer was appalling. The food was awful, and the canteen was incredibly stressful and annoying. The entertainment was ridiculously bad, and amphitheater was like a oven. (I can't believe they still have bingo.). The Egyptian restaurant staff were rude. The cleaner introduced himself on day one with his hand out. He made a point of turning up everyday whenever we went to our room, "to check the minibar". It was like have another member of the family. The pools were quite grubby. All inclusive kids clubs seemed to require £5 every time we went. The spa people ripped my wife off after her treatment. They also harass you around by the pool. The room was ok once inside and after the cleaner had gone. Not a 4 star. Will not be going back.More

Gary W,

A week wasn't enough!

We have just returned home from a wonderful week in the Coral Sea HV. I heavily relied on trip advisor before we left so felt we should help out other families too. We took our 5 year old son who absolutely loved it. Restaurants... Try out the Al a carte restaurants, it's a nice break from the buffet restaurant which I imagine over two weeks it might get a bit repetitive. The village diner was our favourite, the steak was cooked to perfection!! The omelette station for breakfast is lovely, as is the pasta station for lunch & dinner. Pools....it was very busy which I believe is because of the extra bookings from Tunisian guests, so it may not be the same next year but to get a good sun bed space near the front of the pool so we could watch our son you had to be by the pool at 6am! The pool men check the beds at 7am & remove any towels from beds not occupied & then they do the same at 10. The pools were lovely and clean, no code brown situations whilst we were there which I had been expecting from other reviews. Illness... We were all find but we used hand sanitiser before & after eating & after touching things, especially Egyptian money!! We brushed our teeth with bottled water & we were absolutely fine, & I'm sure my son swallowed his body weight in pool water but was still ok!! Room.... We had a double select room above a swim up room in block 8, great positioning for the restaurant & both the main & quiet pool. The room was modern & clean, huge walk in shower. Our cleaner Remmy was brilliant with our son, always cleaned in the morning so we were never disturbed in the afternoon when we kept our son out of the sun for an hour or two. And he did the most amazing crocodile towel art! We asked for the mini bar to be emptied & we put the large bottles of water in it (which are free!) Cleanliness..... The whole hotel is spotless, the grounds are amazing & so well maintained! Staff.... Very smiley & friendly & on the whole don't expect tips except for the pool & amphitheatre waiters, they only return to the people who tip. We gave £1 coins as we when we wanted. Entertainment.... We enjoyed live & loud with Rianna & Rich, they are amazing & so energetic. My son loved Rich! The children's entertainment wasn't great, it's pepper pig played on a big screen (yawn) & the widgets which aren't very entertaining really. That should be scrapped & do a proper kids disco. One down side is the venue, it's in an outside amphitheater which is so hot & it's stone steps which make your heart stop every time the kids go up & down, even if they don't belong to you! It would be better placed inside. Kids club.... Too many reps & too many kids, there's no relationship or interaction. My son always said hi & they barely waved & kept walking, my son didn't go to kids club after two tries due to this, which is very unlike him. Luckily the hotel had so many plus sides that this wasn't an issue. Would we return...YES More

Baileyhughes4,

2nd visit to Red Sea Holiday Village and just as good as the first.

I booked this years holiday the day we arrived home from last years as we had an amazing time. Holiday was slightly different vibe this year as our travelling buddies kids were much younger so we chilled alot more in the evenings rather than cocktails in the Adult Bar when our girls went to the club....but still a brilliant holiday. We were in Block 3, room 3210, smashing spot, right in front of the Cabanas (if only I could've got one in my case) lovely big room with 2 decent camp beds for the girls, with a fab dressing room and lovely big bathroom with walk in shower..splendid. We were in a Kids Den room last year in Block 5, lovely but my girls are tall and the bunks were quite cramped for them. As returning guests we had the option to eat at the Med Restaurant at breakfast, so we did, it was closer to our room. We also used the late checkout voucher we received, had to wait till the night before to check availability but it was only £19. A fruit platter every day was lovely too though and a wee treat for the girls getting their nails done was avery nice thanks for coming back. We are early risers so down with the towels at half 6 is fine as we waited till the towel sweep then got our brekkie and on our beds for 9..some thought they could tip and walk away, some thought they could pop their towels down and then appear after lunch.....ha ha the towel sweep was worth watching, the arrogance in some people is priceless. Daytime entertainment is busy and loud, quizzes, volleyball, water polo, shuffleboard, the team try to involve everyone and if you don't want to join in they are really respectful of that too. Our girls didnt go to the clubs at night this time. We enjoyed sitting in the Sports Bar or reception and playing cards, chatting and using the hotels fab free wifi. Razamatazz..last year they loved doing the dancing and our yourngest decided to do it again this year, £35 but NO TSHIRT, I think thats a bit rubbish considering all the other HVs get the tshirts..spoke to Razzamatazz who blamed FC..spoke to FC who amazingly blamed Razzamatazz...I couldnt be bothered after that, but she won't be doing it again so she tells me. Food was super, we ate in all the restaurants, buffet, med (italian), chinese, indian, village diner and splashed out for the stone grill this year too. Lovely meal each and every night, never struggled with choices, our youngest is a bit fussy but she was fine and filled her plate every day. As the dessert section is to die for I chose to get up at 5am and head out for a few miles, I liked to run round the hotel grounds, down to the end of the pier and back then turn left or right, both as safe as houses...but cooler at that time and I skipped to dessert section guilt free. We hired speedboats from Aquarius for a couple of hours and they took us straight out to a divewreck and then onto Tiran Island, it was wonderful and only a couple of hours rather than the whole day we did last year. Shopping, only went out once this year...straight to Rimon's handbag shop, out of the main gate, turn right and walk up to Hardrock Cafe then across the road and his shop is on the right - lovely bags, purses, beats and belts. We had a lovely holiday but I think our girls 12 and 11 are now a little old for this as the evening entertainment is aimed at the little ones...back to Egypt again next year but Hurghada for a change. Tipping, we took english notes and as the staff asked us to change their coins that gave us coins to tip with...and on a final note - I was really ashamed to see guests demanding their drinks, service with not a please or thank you xxMore

Home from Home

Accommodation: As always very spacious, clean, extremely comfortable and very well maintained during our stay. The rooms are as the First Choice brochure states. Impressive towel art by Mohammed (Block 13) yet again. We cannot find anywhere else that can excel this hence being back for our 5th time in 5 years. Hotel: Has everything you require on site. Facilities on site are fantastic. Extremely presentable, clean and tidy. Always updating/improving around the complex i.e. new bars, painting, gardens. Always feel like we have returned home and want to investigate the different changes on each return. Food: Although the food was cooked and presented well, we realise it is hard to cater for everybody's tastes we sometimes found it difficult to please everyone's tastes in our party. We are ourselves to blame for this as we didn't try the other restaurants on site. Staff: All over cannot fault, always smiling and happy to help, presentable, polite, fun. Nothing too much trouble. Service: Quicker turnaround on drinks orders from Quiet Pool bar could be improved to Swim Up rooms. On many occasions waiting 45 minutes from ordering to getting a drink (which we experienced on previous visits). We understand they were very busy but sometimes we found it quicker to go and get them ourselves rather than wait. Perhaps more staff could be beneficial. Overall: Fantastic holiday yet again. Would definitely return and recommend the Holiday Village Red Sea. It gives you the option of entertainment/fun/relaxation whichever suits you. 10/10. Weather as always cannot be faulted. We have now since booked to return in March 2016.More
