“Good Value for Money, Middle of the Road Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Stayed here back in June for a week with my wife. This was our 4th trip to Eygpt but first to Hurghada.

Firstly arrival is painful - you have to get a visa and the banks/tour operators are ripping everybody off. But banks a little less so therefore get your visa from them - its $15. I would recommend taking US Dollars if you can as they rip you off on the exchange rates if you don't.

The trip to the hotel was about 20-30 mins by taxi and cost about £15. So worth it over the tour coaches - beware you will have to haggle to get them down.

On to the hotel - well maintained generally. All the rooms are ground floor but very clean - we saw virtually no bugs/insects during our trip. Any i would say the bed was one of the better ones I have had in a hotel for quite sometime. Room was also very quite. At the far end of the resort. I would not want to be too close to the central complex as it could get rather noisy.

Food had plenty of choice if a little repetative. The chefs cooked at the pool bar each lunch time - this was pretty much 4 different options, chicken, beef, hotdogs and liver on rotation each day.

There are a lot of Russians here and very few other nationalities - however I had no issues with anybody here just bear in mind that British people like to queue whereas other nationailites do not. If you let them they will push in.

My own real down side of this hotel was the pool bar. The issues were 3 fold.

1. You could not get served a drink, you have to get out the pool walk round to the otherside of the bar and take your drinks back.
2. Its in the shade all day so it can get a little chilly sat here especially if its windy.
3. Its in the shallow end of the pool - so you get kids running around jumping in a soaking you whilst your trying to have a nice peaceful drink.

All in all I would return here - I would not pay over the odds for it there are better hotels - but there are also much worse hotels than this in Eygpt.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the central complex of the hotel if you want peace and quite. It is about a...

I just came back from an amazing 4 days vacation with my friends... we really enjoyed our time to the extreme... I loved everything about the resort... All seemed very friendly... I enjoyed the food and gained extra pounds actually :D
The room was surprisingly big !!! I stayed at room 3412 and liked how near we were to the restaurant and to the beach and to the pool...
The beach and pool bars were available all the time just don't be shy to ask for the specific drink you want...
you won't need to leave the resort as everything is already there... beach activities, renting bikes everything
at night there is a nice show too... you'll enjoy it :)
I'm thinking of going again with my family this time...
P.S: there's a map behind the key envelope ;) it may help you find your way :D
Thanks coral beach rotana ^.^

Room Tip: I only explored the "3000" part :D 3412 meant in the "3000" room part, 4 levels...

We are just back from our first time at coral beach, and we had a great vacation that we are sad that it is over.
The beach is amazing, big, closely there was a very beautiful sea of ​​unusual colors like on the postcards.
The rooms are nice with a good terrace, clean bathroom, new plumbing (I had a room no. 3114), are cleaned every day. And the towels changed every day, even the ones that did not use.
The grounds are large, many flowering shrubs, trees, everything is bright, workers poured shear take away. There is a very unusual plants, look closely.
A large 1.2 km beach is beautiful especially the little island you can walk across. There are Bungalows for those who want privacy. There's a sandy beach and a rocky beach which is used mainly for the water sports: Wind Surfing, Banana Boat and much more.
The food was very good . The meals are very nice, rich and clean. There are always lots of varieties. The restaurant staff were very friendly and they make very delicious food. As for drinks, tea, coffee, milk, water. The waiters gave us Coke, Sprite.
Staff are friendly and considering. They work exceptionally long hours and have to remain NICE all day. In front of the lobby there were some people sitting and a singer singing.
Snorkeling was amazing especially when we took the boat.
My baby had fun on the beach and enjoyed her time in the kids club near the pool.
We enjoyed our stay very much. A Big 'Thank You' to all the amazing staff who made our stay perfect. Thanks to the animation team, specially that Black Funny guy. In a nut shell, it was the perfect holiday any one would want. I highly recommend this Special Resort!
Looking forward to go back there again.

This was our 4th time to Egypt and we loved it as always. The complex very big but the walking is very pleasant. we stayed in room 1204 which was in the middle of the complex which was only a 5 minuet walk to the beach, pools, reception, shops and dinning room. our cleaner was lovely clean sheets and towels everyday nothing was to much trouble for him ( Mohammad) we had something different every day made with our towels. The room was clean and the shower was nice and strong and always had hot water. I suggest if you like a cupper when you wake up take a kettle with you, but you can always get on at the bar.
Every morning myself and my husband sat on our balcony being entertained be the resident hawks hunting just yard in front of us.
Ahmed Wagih was the best waiter on site always had a table for us, and at lunch and dinner always got us our drinks.
You do get pestered round the pool and on the beach with staff trying to sell you things but if you tell them you are there just to relax they leave you alone just don't say maybe later in the week as they will keep coming back.
I read all the reviews and some people are just never satisfied, its good value for money if you take the price of the flight off.
We had a lovely two week we were a party of six, myself, husband, daughter (17) and our friend and his two children (14 &17) .
You can walk into the sea if you go to the far end of the beach, there was some lovely fish to be seen of the end of the jetty were you can also snorkel and dive .Our children enjoyed the water sports and we all loved the quad bikes.
We did a snorkelling trip to paradise island that was lovely you have to pay extra for the photos and DVD they do but it was worth it.
My only negative point is There is a free shuttle bus into the new town you only get three hours but an hour of that was driving there and then when you get there you get taken to a "Friends" shop the man there was very rude and intimidating, my advise is if you want to go shopping in the new town walk to the top of the drive and get in a taxi it will cost about £10 (English) return and the taxi drivers are lovely, just agree a price before you get in.
Over all a wonderful holiday

We r just back from our third time at coral beach, and as usual, we had a great vacation that we are sad each time that it is over. the beach is amazing and the rooms are fine. the animation team is ok but i liked the old one more before (back in 2011). I think more animation activities are needed on the beach (there were only 2 activities: the morning gym and aqua-gym). the restaurant was good and the restaurant staff were good as well. One note is that, the drinks (water and juice) on the beach bar were not cooled at some times (i think due to electricity cut-offs). Snorkelling was amazing especially when we took the glass boat. My baby had fun on the beach and enjoyed his time. Looking forward to go back there again.
