This week myself and my girlfriend spent 4 days and 3 nights in the 'U coral beach' previously 'club med' in eilat. After spending many vacations in different hotels primarily in eilat I have to say that this was by far the best vacation that I have spent in eilat.
After arriving in the area early on the first day (9am) I decided to make my way to the hotel in order to get my affairs in order and see if it was possible to print out the tickets for the hotel at the reception. I was greeted by the security outside who although I was not meant to arrive until later on were more than happy to accommodate me with a parking space inside the hotel grounds. I then moved on to the reception where I was greeted by Mary and Eden, two lovely hotel staff who were more than happy to help me make all the arrangements necessary and informed me that I was able to check-in already to the hotel, however my room was currently being cleaned. I told them this was no problem and then was informed that as soon as the room is ready I will receive an SMS, and within half an hour I received the SMS followed by a phone call telling me to arrive at reception.... and so began 4 days of never ending top quality service.
All the staff at the reception were exemplary, the staff in the dining room were more than accommodating to every need, each day we received a call to our hotel room asking if everything was okay and we were enjoying ourselves, the head of maintenance arrived at our door to ask if everything in the room was in order, the bar staff and of course the entertainment team!
The rooms in the hotel are relatively small, however this is more than made up for by the all inclusive nature of the hotel. The rooms are clean, in good working order, excellent showers! We we more than happy, even without a balcony that we are usually used to.
The location is a little outside of the centre of eilat, however a 30 shekel ride will take you there, and if you have a car then there is really no problem.
The amenities in the hotel of fruitful and of high quality, including a small shop for general needs that is not overpriced, all you can drink bars in every corner of the hotel, snacks as well as pizza at 23.00 at night, the private beach and the hotel pool which is clean and in good condition.
As for entertainment you will notice wherever you go there is something going on, in the pool there are activites everyday at 12.00, water aerobics, water games and shows. Inside the hotel there is entertainment for children and adults alike and we much enjoyed seeing everyone getting involved. The entertainment team always seem full of life and genuinely happy to be entertaining the guests.
All in all there are so many aspects of the trip that we enjoyed thanks to the incredible service, staff and facilities and can genuinely say that I don't have anything negative to say about our trip!
We are much looking forward to coming back in the future!
So to all at U coral beach, thank you very much for everything and we will see you again soon!

Rooms without balconies overlook the pool, whereas balconies overlook the road and entrance.
