The Staff Make This A Must

We arrived at Red Sea/Coral Sea Holiday Village on 31st March We had never been to Egypt before , but, we will certainly be back Our aim was to have a chill out two week break and we nearly achieved that. We had booked a swim up room, and would be more than happy to pay the extra again for that extra privacy We knew that part of our holiday would be during the UK school break and when the kids arrived the noise levels rose too , not always the kids , sometimes it was their excitable parents !!!! The Village is very well kept and the gardens are lovely, the acommodation was very spacious, with separate shower, wash area and toilet The bed was enormous and very comfortable and it was very clean The choice of food and restaurants was very good too , you get tokens to dine around in other restaurants outwith the main dining room , which can be a bit noisy , choose your time carefully and it will be fine We went to La Mer £15 approx each for a great big plate of seafood , starters and dessert, dont get a bottle of wine just order glasses it doesnt cost extra The beach is not very nice , not the white sand of say Portugal, more the builders variety. The beach toilets are spotless though We enjoyed watching the kids club activities on the beach in the afternoon First Choice reps take a bow especially big Danny how you keep smiling guys working these shifts and dealing with over protective parents is beyond me Over all we were delighted with our holiday but the people who made it for us were the staff they are brilliant especially Hany 1 and Hany 2 Restaurant managers and Mohamed ,Executive Sous Chef their dedication to guests is unbelievable they went out of their way to ensure that every meal was perfect for a very restricted diet Thank you guys it was really appreciated Other members of staff deserve a mention too, Ragab , housekeeper A Aslan, William, Hermani, Garva, too many others to mention, really the staff cannot be praised highly enough Please remember this and tip the ones who look after you , and not just the occasional £1 you will be well looked after they work very hard for not a high wage Would we recommend a visit , yes! Not during school hols if possible though Will we go back yes for sureMore

Very good family holiday.

At first arrival the hotel was a huge disappointment but after upgrading from a standard room (don't believe the photo's of this room!!) to a kids den room the holiday started looking much better. Initially we were in 12 block which is so far away from everything and terrible views of the hotel across the walk way to block 6 which was perfect. Noise really wasn't a problem at night, didn't hear anything. Refurbishment was ongoing which didn't help with the initial thoughts of the hotel, we couldn't hear the guy at the front desk as so much noise from the builders. They really should warn you about this. However at the pool there is none of this and you can enjoy the pool and the many many kids activities. It is very noisy with all the reps and the awful five alive kids entertainment. But you can get away from this and just enjoy yourselves without all the entertainment. The buffet was really good, so much variety each day and fresh food. Kids well catered for. Everyone very friendly and couldn't be any more helpful. Would I return - probably not, once is enough with a Thomson holiday. But we really loved it and would definitely recommend it. We were sad to leave.More

A good hotel ruined by First Choice

Unfortunately the hotel is undergoing a major refurb, if it was in Europe I think it would have been closed under health & safety laws, but trust TUI to take the money & not supply the goods. There were many good points which did outweigh the bad points, which were mainly caused by First Choice not the hotel. The gardens are excellent, planting and walkways are a credit to the hotel, there was no litter except that left by a few families who were to lazy to walk 2 mtrs to one of the many litter bins, but the staff cleared up after them quickly. The main dining room is very large and noisy, with music playing continually, which is drowned out by talking and sounds like you are sitting next to somebody with headphones too loud, but no problem getting a table for small or large parties, food was a bit of a shock after being used to European hotels, but tasty and plentiful, no show cooking of fresh meat or fish, but plenty of choice. We were given 7 vouchers to use in the A la carte restaurants which are excellent, makes a great change to be served and food was of a high standard. The rooms are large with a good walk in wardrobe, could do with some more draw space, we had same amount of space for 2 as my daughter had for 4 in her room. The pools are almost excellent, only exception being the small children's pool, which is cold, seems strange that they spend a lot of money heating large pools but the kids they have to have cold water. Plenty of sunbeds and shades, no need to get up early. Service everywhere is 1st class, all staff happy, friendly and helpful. The day time First Choice pool entertainers spoil it though, music was unsuitable for a family hotel, I thought that TUI would have supplied selected music. Several days holidaymakers supplied their own choice of music to the reps, much better, but very very loud, our room was about 1/2 mile from the pool and we could here the reps shouting over the microphone through closed doors. For some reason there is adult only entertainment at night, strange in a family Holiday village, and this is held outside in the pool area from 9.30 till midnight. Not only are there no professional acts the singers they had were rubbish. It has to be the worst evening entertainment ever. We could hear it in our room,(block 3) but decided not to change rooms, my daughter and family had paid a lot extra for a kid's den room which is directly opposite the pool (blocks 5 & 6). This was were the most complaints came from and demands to move, as when you have kids and babies in a room with you, you expect the rooms to be quiet, especially at night. She moved to block 10 by the quiet pool, refurbished room but no sea view. The quiet pool is not that quiet due to the refurbishment work taking place. The furniture in the buffet and "bars" (I use the term "bars" loosely), is falling apart and should be scrapped. At night there is the Sports bar, freezing cold, not showing live sport, but recordings, very dingy but clean. The lobby bar which shut after 3 days, is not a bar but a place to take your drink and sit in an A/C area next to reception, the roof bar which is very dark and busy, but service excellent, be careful when you sit down as the chair may well be broken. The Pharoah bar is a large room, looks as though it is laid out for a party, which never happens, with a small serving area in the corner. This is where the High 5 children's entertainment takes place, if you consider 2 reps stuffing marshmallows in their mouth and trying to say "fluffy bunny" entertainment, this is the place for you. This is followed by adult/kids entertainment, what do you expect 100 kids to do whilst bingo is being played? No professional acts just untrained, talentless First Choice reps. All in all a good hotel, a fair budget holiday, but until TUI do something about the entertainment and the refurb is finished, avoid it. If First Choice pulled out this could be a great upmarket hotel. The day time kids clubs and creche were very good There is gym, but most of the equipment is broke.More

Great experience

Just returned from our second visit to Holiday Village. Stayed for 2 weeks from 27th March. Staff can't do enough for you. Food excellent, plenty of variety, there's something for everyone! Stayed above a swim up room in block 13- Perfect!! Would I return- Almost certainly. See you very soon(just a tip about wifi go to Falcoln tours just outside the hotel , got a dongle for the fortnight couldn't fault it.)More

Great for families

This was our second visit to sharm and the first to the holiday village hotel. On entering the hotel the first impression isn't great as the reception area is currently being refurbished and looks slightly underwehelming. Dont be put off though as the rest of the hotel is lovely. We booked a room with a kids den, which was great as you are separated by a sliding partitioned door. Our room was in block 4 which was lovely and looked like it had been recently refurbished, massive room, king size bed and lovely powerful shower! Bufet restaurant very good, lots of choice, staff lovely. I would recommend as others have mentioned bringing £1.00 coins with you, as if you give the odd tip your drinks are replenished often without having to ask. we went to the Chinese and the village diner, out of the two we much prepared the village diner which was on the beech, better atmosphere food tastier. our boys are 10 and 8 and they were very occupied which meant we got a chance to relax! the kids clubs were great, water games, turbo-karts on the beach, canoeing, archery, and parties in the evening for them. Hotel pools great and even though we were there over the Easter holidays, their were always plenty of sunloungers and you never felt to crowded. The beach isn't what you would call sandy, so not great if you are expecting to build sand castles, but perfect for snorkeling and realaxing (it was always quiet). I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone with school age children as the facilities for them are great, and you should actually get a break knowing that they are in safe hands having a great time in one of the kids clubs.More
