just returned from a week at The Holiday village Red Sea in Egypt,with my partner and 10 year old son.Well what can i say?We did see the negative report from this hotel on Watchdog, and were a bit afraid of what we had let our selves in for.However,i cannot find a single bad thing to say about this hotel.
On arrival we asked if we could upgrade our room to one of the swim up rooms, but there were none available, so the receptionist said that he would give us a good room and that we would thank him when we saw it. When he said this ,i thought o yeah i bet you say this all the time.
but when we were shown our rooms it was perfect.
The room was massive, It had a massive super king size bed and a folding bed for my son.It had a massive marble bathroom with a walk in shower separate room with a sink and hair dryer, and a massive room for the toilet. All were spotlessly clean .We also had a large TV which had English speaking film channels and football channels.we also had nice wicker furniture on the terrace .
We arrived at the hotel in the dark, so it wasn't until the next morning , that we could see that our room was literally right in front of the huge swimming pool .
The hotel boasts several pools varying from a quiet one , to a heated one , and one for small kids tower.this hotel also has 2 superb slides .
My son is at the awkward age, too old for kids club but at this hotel the clubs range from creches for very young kids up to 15 year old clubs.
My son joined megastars which is up to 11 years of age , and he thought it was fantastic. He did archery, canoeing, raft building , aerial adventure.
All the activities are extremely well supervised by a well trained team of First Choice club reps, The kids are all kitted out in full safety gear, but every one kids and adults a like all love the zip wire ride . it a must , not to be missed.
We now come to the food, what can i say?This is probably the first year that my family and i have gone on holiday and actually put weight on whilst abroad. The eating arrears are very well maintained, spotlessly cleaned and well managed. Every night you can find something to almost everyone's taste,the dessert section has the most delicious cakes and pastries.at this hotel food is available almost all day from 1 section or another. you-can eat at the beach, pool snack bars or the restaurant . Also ice lollies are available by the pool from 11 til 4 and that goes for the big kids amongst us too.
