“10 days of heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

I wasn't sure about visiting here, I thought it might be over run with kids and charva's, but the lady at Thompson reassured me it was lovely and she was right.
The rooms are large, clean, have huge walk in showers and a walk in wardrobe. Lovely balconies too. We were given slippers and gowns to use, which was a nice touch.
The food was lovely. The buffet was nice, with lots of healthy options available. The a la carte restaurants stopped us feeling bored, and were all nice. The one on the beach has beautiful views.
Evening entertainment wasn't great, but in the adults bar, it had a very friendly atmosphere and Stevie who ran the adult evenings was hilarious. Like a young graham norton, very dry humour! The cocktail list is extensive and I thought the wine wasn't too bad, I've had worse. Egyptian beer is lovely!!
The pool and beach areas are nice, but most pools are freezing in winter but luckily there's a heated one! There are double hammocks at beach which are so relaxing and the little pier is a lovely walk in afternoon.
Finally, the service makes this place. The waiters, house keeping and bar staff are all amazing. They are friendly but not in your face, welcoming and won't let you lift a finger! I felt very pampered.
Tips: book excursions through falcon who are a five min walk as u turn right out hotel, half price of falcon. I'd recommend stargazing in desert, it was beautiful and bedouins are so welcoming! Quad biking is awesome too. Also haggle with the spa people at hotel, they do knock about twenty percent off if u persist!!

We have just returned home after a fantastic fortnight in coral sea holiday village. (13th - 27th January) and can't wait to go back again for a fourth time,

On all our visits we have been very pleased with the hotel in general and especially the service but this time we felt all the staff made extra special efforts to give all guests the best experience they could. There were three people who stood out for us - Ahmed the barman who brought drinks to the swimup rooms was friendly and nothing was too much trouble (including going back for our drinks when we missed him coming round for orders - Mohamed our cleaner who didn't understand a question my husband asked him and went to get his supervisor to be sure there weren't any issues. There werent it was just a general question but this showed how keen Mohamed was to ensure we got the best service - and last but not least Hany one of the waiters who we saw in many of the restaurants, he always said hello and said see you at breakfast and laughed and joked with us. Also he was very good with young children which is unusual for a young man. He clearly loved his job and saw it as making people feel special not just serving them food.

This hotel is fast becoming our second home for out of season holidays. Highly recommended.

Excellent all round, nothing to complain about. The staff from reception staff to the cleaners could not do enough for us, and nothing was too much trouble. Myself and my partner stayed in january the weather was excellent the hotel was about 30% full and everything was operating at full capacity from the entertainment to all the bars and restaurants. Ventured out of the resort got hassled by the locals but this is expected as it's their culture, my partner wasn't too impressed but if your polite and say no they tend to leave you alone. Also there is a Maccy D's and KFC across the road from the resort. Didn't need to go these fast food chains as the food from all the restaurants and the buffet was fantastic with all the choice you would need. No need to take towels with you as you get a fresh towel everyday you can acquire these next to the pools or on the beach for sunbathing. Quality of room was excellent and very large, fresh towels everyday complementary water everyday , tea, coffee and kettle supplied. Mini bar fully stocked in room does come at an extra cost but not expensive by a long shot. Brilliant holiday will definatly be returning as everyone we spoke was on the 3rd or even 4th visit so they must be doing something right for people to keep returning. Forgot to mention the first choice reps were excellent and you always saw them for anything you needed.

Room Tip: Block 13 excellent view and the sun was on our balcony all day :)

Best ever Holiday, will be going back. Only 2 negatives 1 swim up poll was cold, could do with being heated but still would chose it again, 2 Adult entertainment started too late and was boring. Could of done with some live music and maybe a dance floor. Loved the food, the staff, the location and room. Word of warning don't go to the local market trip Horrible!!!! Thank you for a lovely relaxing holiday will be bringing the kids next time.

Room Tip: Block 7 and 13 swim up rooms gets the sun all day

Stayed for 10 nights and could not fault the hotel in anyway. The food was very good with lots of choice & staff were friendly & helpful. My parents have just booked on our recommendation & we are planning to return next year.

Room Tip: the swim up rooms are good value for money but not till March as they are not heated

My husband and I arrived at the Holiday Village on 5th Jan and stayed for 2 weeks. It was our 4th visit to this hotel,and it just gets better every time. All the staff are just so pleasant, efficient and welcoming that you start to relax the minute you arrive. The rooms are very big, clean and comfortable. We stayed in a swim up room which was lovely,and also had tea and coffee making facilities,dressing gowns and slippers,
the grounds are beautiful and very well tended. It is very pleasant to simply walk around them,either to the beach or to one of the a la carte restaurants. We tried all of these and the standard was very good in all, hard to pick a favourite.,but as the new Americano was right on the beach and had a man playing the guitar it is the perfect way to spend an evening.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone,and would like to repeat that all the staff are so good, the service is wonderfull Will return as soon as possible. We did go on the Red Sea Cruise this time,great day, and on the way back we were lucky enough to see the dolphins,there were lots of them and they came close enough to the boat to get some good pics.

Room Tip: Swim up blocks 7 or 13 are best for sun
