ok so me and my fiancé, little boy 4, little boy 2 & baby girl 10 months visited the holiday village june 2012 and it was a fantastic experience! we arrived very late at the hotel but it was still very well staffed one guy took our bags straight away and put them on a trolley ready to take to the room whilst we got given our wristbands and complementary drinks. the guy (sorry I cant remember your name) then wheeled the cart and we followed to our room (block 6 middle floor I think) WOW....the rooms were huge!!!! very clean and up to date we were then shown to the restaurant to have a bite to eat I didn't judge on that food as it was so late. at breakfast it was quite overwhelming how many people are in the restaurant although there was no pushing and shoving no rushing no shouting etc the restaurant staff were fab they couldn't do enough for us bringing highchairs, childrens cutlery etc they were great also teasing the kids and keeping them entertained! the pools were great always being cleaned the gardens were beautiful and constantly there were workers tending to them. the beach was ok but we prefer the pool anyway. my fiancé went snorkelling he said it was an amazing experience the varieties of fish were outstanding! the indian, Chinese, Mediterranean and stonegrill restaurants were stunning and made a change from the buffet the stonegrill is a great experience to cook it yourself on a hot stone and very cheap for the meat too but the fillet steak is lovely. We didn't try the fish restaurant but heard many many great comments you just pay for the weight of your fish and everthing else is included. not one of us had a bad tummy all holiday.....I think its just common sense on what you eat really ur in a different country u can just eat everything!!! I hear so many people complaining of the amount of children here..........the hotel is for families and massively advertised for kids so maybe do more research before you book holiday....some people are so miserable....we were all young once!!!! great kids entertainment granted its not for adults but as a parent if ur kids are happy ur happy so we were very happy JUNE WAETHER IS SCORCHING BUT NOT UNCOMFORTABLE THERES A BREEZE!!! booking for June 2013 cannot wait :):):):):):):) oh and just to say all the staff are amazing they work so so hard esp the cleaners our cleaner was the smiliest person ever couldn't do enough for us lovely place lovely people lovely holiday xxxxxxxMore

We did our homework 'BUT'
If you're looking for a quiet pool I'm afraid you'll be disappointed; notices requesting people to respect other guests peace and quiet in the small pool area were ignored. Similarly, use of inflatables became a nuisance when people were floating around on king size airbeds, crocodiles and the odd giant rubber ring. This was accompanied by continual annoyance generated by some cretin playing music through a computer,It's not my place to challenge this behaviour, but I would think the hotel should take some responsibility in pointing out the error of their ways. It appears that families had trouble getting beds near the shallow end of the big pool where their little ones could enter the water and be supervised easily, consequently, there was a daily influx of badly behaved children who whinged at the slightest challenge; guided by parents who appear (it must be said) to be powerless in the pursuit of any control. Changing nappies poolside and dumping them in public bins in high temperatures instead of walking a short distance to toilets where bins are emptied on a regular basis would be best. No problem with the hotel itself, food in all the restaurants was varied, well prepared and most importantly hot food was hot; al a carte facilities were good. Supervision of the use of handcleanser on entry to restaurants was very good and I couldn't imagine anyone missing this essential process. Every member of staff we met was courteous, very hardworking and did their best to make our stay enjoyable.More

Lovely hotel. Very Very Hot!!!
Nothing can prepare you for how hot it is in Egypt in June. The temperature regularly hit the mid 40s. My partner myself and out 8 y/o son stayed in the coral sea for 10 days all inclusive. We arrived late but the restaurant was still open for late arrivals although there wasn't much choice at that time of night. Out room was clean and spacious with a huge balcony that overlooked the pool. When we first got to our room there was a beach party going on and the music was blasting, we feared the worst but apparently the party is only once a week. The hotel has two pools. One is a quiet pool and the other is more lively with music playing. Both have swim up bars. The beach is a stones throw from the pool and is literally deserted. Coral sea residents have it to themselves. There are dozens of free sun loungers and a cool beach bar that is part of the all inclusive package. My only real problem was with the food. It was of poor quality although there was a varied selection. The snack bar during the day was much better. It only served burgers and pizza etc but I loved it. I mentioned earlier how hot it was but for some reason you could only get bottled water at certain times of the day. I went to get a bottle 10 minutes before the set time and they wouldn't give me it. It was so hot that a 10 minute walk to Burger King at the hotel main entrance was a struggle! It was still boiling hot at night so hot in fact it was uncomfortable to sit out side and have a drink. We spent most evenings inside in the air conditioned bar. At the entrance of the hotel there is a Hard Rock cafe being built. I would recommend you go on a boat trip to try snorkelling in the Red Sea. It was an amazing experience and the high light of the holiday. I tried scuba diving with the Aquarius dive centre which is located in the grounds of the hotel. For £80 I got two dives one off the jetty on the beach in front of the hotel and a 2nd one at a different hotel. It was very quiet so for my money I got the dive instructor to myself and member of staff to carry my gear and a mini bus and driver to drive me to the other dive site. I was treat like a king! I would definitely return to Egypt but probably wouldn't return to this hotel.More

What a fantastic hotel! from the moment we stepped foot inside the door we were made to feel welcome. The hotel is clean, friendly and top class. Our room was amazing with beautiful sea views. It was cleaned every day. The only down side is that the mini bar is expensive but we asked the hotel to empty it out and filled it with beer from the local shops. I have to say here that the local supermarket only sells non-alcoholic beverages, so we bought ours at a corner shop which was markedly cheaper than what the hotel were charging. Be warned that as soon as you set foot outside the complex every man and his camel will be chasing you down the road! There are numerous pools at the hotel, one of which is the quiet pool. The buffet style food was good, with plenty of choice and themed eating nights. There was a variety of alcohol (all inclusive) the cocktails were really good but be warned after midnight There are also three al la carte restaurants - Mediterranean, Asian and Indian. They were all pretty nice but the Indian was outstanding and by far the best curry I have ever tasted (and I have eaten a few). As for entertainment they have the full package and cater for those with children and those travelling without children. My partner and I travelled without children and spent our evenings in the adults only bar. The beach is on the doorstep and has a variety of water sports on offer. The snorkelling was okay but unfortunately most of the coral has been destroyed by the tourism industry. The sea is warm and clear. The hotel also has a fitness/therapy centre. The massage is a must but try and get in there at the start of the holiday. It really sets the mood for a relaxing holiday. The beach bar was good and if you tip the waiter he will be quite attentative to your needs throughout your stay. The hotel has some fantastic trips advertised. My partner and I went on an adults only snorkelling trip which was out of this world, and gave us the opportunity to see an underwater world on two continents. We also visited Soho square. Now the musical fountains that go off every hour were okay but I cant say I thought it was worth a visit. The only trip which we were disappointed we did not do was the trip to Cairo by air. I think this is a must if you are staying at the resort for a fortnight. The people we spoke to who had been said it was amazing and apparently from 2014 the pyramids will be cordoned off so you will only be able to view from a distance. All in all an amazing holiday and I would definitely recommend it to those without or without children :)More

Utterly perfect family holiday - could not have asked for better, we WILL be back!
Our first trip to Egypt and to a Holiday Village and indeed to a Hotel since our 3 yr old little boy was born - we were a little worried but the reviews that are here and more than right, it's a WONDERFUL place. Travelled from Gatwick 3-10 May 2013 Flight out was uneventful and more than adequate. Arriving into Sharm was simple and easy, collected our bags (we were the only flight there so nice and quick) and straight out to meet the reps and be directed to our coach. Only 10 people on our coach and we were taken straight to the gorgeous Holiday Village Red Sea (also known as Coral Sea Holiday Village) - we had already been given our registration forms on the coach so it was straight in to reception to collect our key and back out to be taken with our luggage via golf buggy straight to our Kid's Den room in Block 5. We were delighted to be in this block - we had emailed a request (along with telling them it was our anniversary - free cake!) to the hotel and lo and behold there we were! Even at night, we were blown away by the beauty of the resort, not to mention the friendliness of the staff, all our expectations were already exceeded! On entering our room we were delighted by how spacious the room was, with huge bathroom, wardrobes, safe, fridge/minibar, tea & coffee making facilities and 2 large bottles of water (replenished every day regardless if you have used them or not) Into our bedroom and there is a huuuuge 6 foot bed with lovely crisp white cotton bedding, massive dressing table, 32" flat screen LCD TV (HINT - no DVD player but if you load some movies/tv shows onto a USB stick, there is a slot in the side to connect it and you can watch what you want!!) , table and chairs and out onto a lovely large balcony with comfy rattan chairs and occasional table. Back inside, air conditioning is controlled by two different controllers (one by the front door) and one in the main bedroom which can be set to different temperatures if you like. Into the Kid's Den and the real reason we chose this resort, our little boy was overjoyed to discover the bunk beds, two bean bags and tv and some kids stickers on the wall, we were delighted to see it was an actual proper room with a door to close and give us all our own spaces whilst staying together! The rooms were absolutely spotless (I had brought antibacterial flash wipes but no need at all!) and remained immaculate throughout our stay thanks to our lovely cleaner Mohammed. We all loved the various towel arts that were left!! Wonderful! Having had a quick change of clothes we were quickly back out to explore the hotel on the way back to the main restaurant which they had kept open for us to get something to eat. Food was excellent, lots of choice and all delicious. The team were great, every single one of them was friendly and polite although some more friendly than others. Great to see them monitoring entry, ensuring you had used the alcohol hand gel and then having a maitre d' seeing you to a free table, yes there was sometimes a queue but we never waited more than a minute or two... We ate well, grabbed a couple of drinks and back to the room so little man could do to sleep and we could relax on the balcony ready for the beginning of our week in the sun. Sun beckons as we wake up, down to the pool with our pool towel cards to be exchanged for towels (hint - many people also bring their own towels to use but also to identify their beds!) and the towel guys get us settled into a lovely set of beds under a parasol between the main pool and the children's splash pool. The pools are fantastic and so are the bars! Mohammed is our waiter by the pool and was very attentive with whatever drinks we wanted (yes we tipped him but what's pound or two here or there? Def made more of a difference to him and he made our days relaxing by the pool even more pleasant!) Little man went off to kids club - first time he was a bit nervous but the wonderful staff let me stay with him until he felt confident and left him quite happily - after that he was begging to go back, and complaining when he didn't go! The staff were lovely, always bubbly, always friendly and most importantly took the children's safety VERY SERIOUSLY with a sign in form and only allowing those who's signature is on their card to collect. Better than pre-school at home! Great varied selection of activities which he adored and we were able to relax knowing he was safe and having a whale of time whilst we slept/swam/sunbathed... FOOD Have read every review and I seriously cannot understand why people complain. The main restaurant was fantastic, yes it's very big and somewhat cavernous but the selection, variety and quality of the food was something to behold, fresh salads of every kind (all washed in mineral water, never tap), dressings, dips, the most fantastic bread selections, all incredibly fresh and delicious, hot dishes, as well as made to order bars at every meal, eggs (fried/poached) & omlettes in the morning (plus cereals, waffles, pancakes, toast, fresh meats and cheese, salads, fruit salads, pastries galore and all the cooked food you might expect - obviously they don't have any pork products so the bacon is beef bacon - surprisingly nice - and the sausages are either chicken or beef (much like a hot dog, not for me but little man loved them!) - biggest revelation was the Egyptian Beans I discovered on the last morning - spicy and delicious! At lunch there is also a a la minute pasta bar, pizza made to order, a hot dog/greek salad station as well as the salad bar, hot buffet (and yes there is always chips!) a special dish (we saw roast beef with yorkshires, roast rack of lamb & seafood pealla - all delicious. Finally there is the dessert bars - WOW!! If you like cakes you are in for a treat. Beautiful looking cakes and fresh pastries (like baclava) At night there is a repeat of lunch however it also includes a theme which changes every night (on a 14 day rotation) so always something different - some more successful than others! On top of all of this, there is also a kid section which has perennial kid friendly food (chips, pasta and tomato sauce, chicken goujons, sausages, fish goujons as well as plastic plates, miniature desserts, fruit, salad and lovely little tables where they could eat by themselves if they wanted) The only improvement I said to the team (when asked) I would like to see is to see more cooked vegetables. Lo and behold the next night there was a dish of sauteed broccoli but hey this is a holiday and there was still plenty there! If you got tired of the buffet restaurant or fancied a change there are 3 a la carte restaurants which you can go to once a week included within the AI - Sari (Indian), Bamboo (Asian) and Mediterraneo (Italian-ish) - we booked for Bamboo and Mediterraneo but not Sari - menu looked much the same as a curry house back home but we heard great things from those we spoke to who did go. Mediteraneo was right on the beach with La Mer (the fish restaurant) and StoneGrill which you pay for but are very reasonable - indeed the La Mer restaurant it seemed you literally only paid for the fish you particularly wanted and none of it seemed too expensive, all the rest of your meal and drinks were included. All meals at Mediterraneo and Bamboo were nice but other than the treat of being served we weren't blown away - service was very quick, meals nice but nothing special. Ate at Stonegrill on the beach for our anniversary and it was very nice, food was nice and the novelty of cooking on your own lump of rock was a different way to spend an evening plus the staff made a lovely fuss and brought out a huge chocolate cake to celebrate our anniversary which was lovely. All in (inc 2 bottles of wine - oops!) it came to £60 ENTERTAINMENT Back to the entertainment and fortunately whilst we were there, the entertainment moved from the indoor theatre above the main restaurant outside to the amphitheatre by the main pool. Yes the entertainment is a little bit cheesy but that was part of it's appeal and the team there work tirelessly to entertain - how they have that energy night after night amazes me! We met some wonderful new friends whilst we were away so whilst we saw some of the i5Live show we tended to move away once the bingo started but if thats your thing then alls good. The team are incredible good natured and friendly, always offering activities during the day and leaping about (despite the heat) but never forcing you to join in anything. Little man had swimming lessons each day with the wonderful Sophie (he fell a bit in love with her - bit out of his league!) and the excellent Rick - was delighted with the teaching, full english standards and despite these being his first lessons on his own (we used to lessons together) he flourished and by the end of the week we had seen massive improvements to the point that at 3 he could actually begin to swim the length of the pool without any aids (a bit at a time but still!) I could literally carry on raving about this holiday for weeks but will stop, hopefully the attached pictures will tell you more about the incredible grounds and scenery, snorkelling was good if a little shallow and we didn't feel the need to leave the grounds of the hotel, everything we needed was right there - perhaps we paid a little more than we would outside but it was fine for us. Best compliment we can give is that we all declared this the BEST family holiday we have ever had, we will be back again - along with our new friends - next year to enjoy it. 1 week was not enough, we are looking at 10 days minimum next time! What we all agreed was that it was the easiest and most relaxing holiday we had all had and whilst we have travelled extensively all over the world, for us at this stage in our lives we could not think of anywhere better. Feel free to ask me any questions. Happy to help!More
