Firstly, I have to say that after a terrible holiday in Egypt (Naama Bay) last summer, I vowed never to go back. However after finding an amazing deal for Coral Sea Splash & reading all the reviews I decided to go for it.
I am SO glad I did. The hotel & staff are amazing. Booked a double room for 3 adults & a baby - thought it would be quite cramped but the rooms are so spacious it's unreal. Even had some sliding doors separating 2 of the beds so there was plenty of privacy for all. The rooms are so modern and cleaned impeccably. Our cleaner was Mohamed and was the nicest man we met there.
The pools were lovely - perfect for kids and adults. The main pool was very relaxed - but with a 2 year old, the slides were where we had to be. Even they were really relaxed and quiet considering. The lazy river is fabulous, I could have laid on my lilo going round it all day long.
Great selection of food in the hotel but travelled with 2 very fussy eaters. On the hotel doorstep (literally) is a KFC, McDonalds, TGI Fridays, Hard Rock Cafe & Starbucks. We were never short for somewhere to go.
Egypt is well known for its hassling. A main reason I disliked my trip last year was the spa guys approaching us literally 5/6 times a day and talking non stop about all their treatments. There was none of that here. We went to see the gym & spa (the spa is absolutely stunning - didn't pay anything) and we were left totally alone after that - the guy who worked in the spa would just say hello in passing. I loved that we never felt pressured to do anything.
Could write about this hotel for ages - never enjoyed a hotel stay so much before. Last thing ill mention is one particular lifeguard. Unfortunately I didn't get his name, but he sits at the children's slide pool and is such a lovely man. He would take my daughter on the slides for me while I watched and was fabulous with all the children. To be fair, all the staff were great with the children but he especially was a pleasure to meet.
Glad I didn't pay extra for a swim up room. The water doesn't lead to anywhere so you still have to walk up to your room - then get in the water to swim up to it. Didn't make much sense to me. No matter what room you get, they are gorgeous. English TV availability is brilliant too. Can't wait to return!!!!!
