“Honest review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I recently stayed at the Coral Sea Splash resort. I have to give a report on this place and it is purely factual.

Good points: Food was always decent and snacks were good.
Staffs were very polite and friendly and not letch like other places we have been to in Sharm.
Good rooms nice and spacious and good film channels to choose from.
American diner restaurant was lovely and couldn’t knock it for free meal
Lazy river, flow rider and water slides were all good.

Bad points: now I think we were just unlucky as we arrived and they were changing it to a thomson family hotel so it was packed full of kids and I mean packed and this was during school term so no chance of a quiet relaxing time around the pool. The pool activates were shocking as they would play water polo around a small sized pool (compared to where I have stayed previously) and as everyone was crammed round the pool people were getting smacked in the face by the ball while sunbathing and this went on all day as they never removed the goals!
The hotel entertainment was terrible some of the worst I have seen, we were in bed by 11 most evening as that bored.
Restaurant was over crowded most mornings
Some of the cliental there left a little to be desired as there were mums asking their 5 year old kids to get them a pina colada at 1 in the afternoon!
If you are on the construction side of the hotel you will be woken up by dogs barking as loads of them in the unmanned construction site. Also if you are clos to the lifts like we were you will hear them beeping and they are loud no need for them to beep as woke us up on numerous occasions.

This place was not the classy place I have been in Egypt but you get what you pay for, cheap and cheerful, also there is a huge building site next door that we got to look at every time we exited our room and there was no work happening but that will commence at some point.

Room Tip: don't go unless in a family lookign for early nights as nothing to do after 10 and nothing outsi...

This is now called Coral Sea Aqua club.We loved the resort its amazing. Staff are friendly and attentive to children, when my little boy was playing up they would always make the effort to make him laugh. We found the two Ahmeds that work in the restaurant to be very funny and genuinely talk to you because they want to, where as some of the staff seem to so they get a tip. The slides are all fantastic and we loved the lazy river. Also in the kiddy pool there was a fantastic life guard named Mahoud he would play with all the children and even take them down the slides, my little boy loved him. We found the food to be great always something different to try as they have different themed nights such as british, oriental, seafood, italian and others. The best meal we had was when they did turkey with gravy it was beautiful. We were also glad they did pasta and bolognese every night as this was one of the only meals my little boy would eat. The American restaurant also made a nice change when we went there. My partner had a massage at the spa recommend by Mo (beautiful eyes spa staff) and he thought it was amazing and would recommend it to everyone. Oh and not forgetting the cleaner Mohammed he seemed to be at work literally day and night he kept our room very clean and the towel art was spectacular. Would recommend you take moscito repellent as some people got bit really bad. In all we would love to go bk to this resort in the future.

We've just arrived back from 14 nights at the coral sea aqua club and have had a brilliant time. The hotel itself is very clean and comfortable.

All the staff were brilliant especially Jamal who works in the main and Asian restaurant. We went twice to the Asian the food was delicious and twice to the stone grill ( possibly the best steak I have ever tasted). The stone grill was payable but very cheap and definitely worth the money. It was only £20 for two fillet steaks and a children's meal.

My partner went for a scrub in the spa and said it was very good and relaxing.

Thomson took over the hotel while we were there and the entertainment team Flipper, Dizzi Danni and Cha Cha Chels were very good and friendly.

My three year old loved the kids club and daily visits from Thomson the dog or TTD as he likes to be known. Crazy Craig, Co Co, Crazy Carl and Kit Kat were brilliant with all the kids and the kids disco at night was always busy. I did put my daughter into a couple of the payable kids club sessions but these were all good value for money and she came back with a party bag both times.

We were sad to come home and hopefully looking to go back next May

Room Tip: We were in room 1204 which was first floor overlooking the kids pool, good location as right next to...

Just arrived home last night after a week at the coral sea aqua, room was so much bigger & better than we were expecting with sliding doors to separate the kids quarters! had everything we needed plus more (even had a UK plug socket!). My daughters loved the pools & slides, staff were all friendly & didn't expect tips. The hotel grounds were kept immaculate & everything was so clean...after every service all the BBQ's etc are thoroughly cleaned. There was a huge variety of food on offer & all of it was really nice, my daughter especially loved the ice cream man who makes his own cones!! The spa staff didn't bother us after the first day which was great. My eldest really enjoyed the kids club & we tried the creche for my youngest where she settled well & the staff were all really friendly - gave us the chance to try the flumes which were so much fun (just keep your bottom up or you will get very bruised on the boomerang!!) Usually we don't go back to places but this is one place that we will definitely return to as it is such a perfect place for families with young children!

Brilliant holiday, kids loved it, made a local friend by the name of Ahmed who owns the perfume shop on site, worth a look, the water park was ace and the entertainment staff really friendly. The pools are cleaned daily and the room cleaners always made us some sort of animal to cheer us up!

Best points too many to go into detail!!!
Fantastic slides and pools with very professional lifeguards
Very clean and hygienic food handling
Restaurants were very good with lovely food and staff
Lovely rooms
Animation team were very friendly
Hard rock cafe is a real treat

Best holiday ever and I have been to a lot of places. Debating weather to go to the same hotel this year! As I don't think it can be beaten

Room Tip: Swim up rooms with sun on balcony are either morning or afternoon

Well all i can say is thais hotel is fantasitc !

The staff really make this hotel great the bar staff are so attentive from the 2 nabils to ramy (who is wonderful always a smile on his face). The reception team are brilliant anything you need they will get it for you. Ibrahim mohamed and mahmoud wahid just brilliant.

The rooms are great very clean and very modern the beds are so comfortable.

The food was good very nice and i was surprised i am so fussy but really enjoyed the variety.

All i can say is the amount of fun you can have here is worth the money that you pay and also the best 2 weeks you will have.

On the other hand the people who complain about this place really just are so sad because this is great how you can complain is beyond me.

Any age will enjoy this hotel !

Miss all you guys so much :(
