“Amazing hotel, amazing staff, awesome water park 5*”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We stayed here for 7 nights from the 01/11/13 2 adults 1 child (12) the hotel & the staff were amazing they really were!! We arrived around 21.30 on the Friday, check in was a breeze, our bags were taken to the room & we were all shown to the restaurant...we stayed all inclusive, with regards to food there was always something for everyone! Food was nice breakfast/lunch/dinner & the b-b-q which was on everyday we were there, outside the main restaurant, + 2 more bars serving pizza, sandwiches, burgers + ice cream & drinks on request 3 outside bars in the resort during the day...the hotel & resort felt really personal & very friendly, awesome for the kids & the adults! The water park.... this in my opinion was pretty awesome, it kept us entertained!!! From the flowrider to the boomerango, space bowl, inner tube, wizard Matt racers & the free fall slide, they all were awesome!!!

Flowrider has to be the best, once you get the technique it's so addictive!! There's a wave pool & a big kids area for the younger ones so they won't get bored + a big main pool & then there's the lazy river which runs round the resort...most of our time was spent on flowrider & the slides, "boomerango" was lush, a big big hello to Amir who is one of the lifeguards & who was brave enough to ride boomerango with me, I'm 31 :) unfortunately Mahmoud the supervisor chickened out...maybe next year :) & hello to Walleed hotel manager very nice guy!! All the staff were amazing, then there's our main man Wael, who always made our room look like a show room with towel art on the bed, swans, elephants, crocodiles all sorts! A top guy he is!! The weather was amazing 1st week of November it was 35 on the Wednesday :) there's so much to see & do in sharm el sheikh & were going back next year to this hotel... we went on 3 excursions, go-carting, soho square & the ultimate dessert experience booked through Thomson, all were amazing but the same excursions are available cheaper...I could go on for ages about our experience of Egypt & the coral sea aqua club resort, top marks & worth 5 stars & there's also a spa & beauty treatment + gym available within the resort so it's all good!! If your looking for somewhere in Nabq bay we highly recommend Coral sea aqua club resort & we went with Thomson...you also wanna check out Ibrahim, a top guy within the hotel resort selling top quality perfumes, natural beauty products & massage oils...I could go on & on, the Asian restaurant was a bit of a let down! But I can't really fault this hotel or staff everyone no matter what there roll within the resort were so friendly, hence we're going back...awesome awesome awesome thank you :)

The only thing I would say, if you book a swim up room as we did request 1 on the sunny side...

Room Tip: Swim up room sunny side...or a room up top over looking the whole resort

Hotel was immaculate, would recommend it to anyone and everyone! Enjoyed every day i was there and most certainly go back! Got involved with the daily entertainment everyday. Entertainment team (Five star animation) definitely made my holiday better. Got to know all the guys there, Ashley, Jamie, Giselle, Shelby, Rachel..Were all a good laugh, Definitely keeping in contact with them all. If it was up to me they would be the permanent entertainment group! I was there for 2 and a half weeks and was not bored for a single minute of it! Only negative bit of my holiday was the leave which even ashley and shelby came to say goodbye, and done us all a little goodbye dance! The staff at the hotel were all so friendly! and was very hard to say goodbye to them all.

Visited Coral Sea during Oct Half Term by default as Thomson messed up my booking but we were not disappointed. The rooms are top notch, we stayed in a family 2 bed, room 3202. There is one room with a huge bed then a second room with 2 singles. You get a fridge, hairdryer, kettle with tea & coffee etc, lovely balcony overlooking the main pool. So much wardrobe/cupboard space, I couldn't fill it which is unheard of!!
There's 3 pool areas, a toddler area (shaded too which is great in the heat), primary age pirate ship and then bigger slides which we all loved, especially the boomerang. The lazy river is fab, just a bit cold and my 2 loved the flow rider, even though they are only 2 and 7 they both did it! The wave pool needs a bit of repair but other than that its's good.

Food is good, the home made ice cream waffle cones went down a treat!

Staff in the restaurant were a bit hit and miss but the waiters round the pool and in the evening were 5*, especially Mohammed, he seemed like a real genuine guy, not just after your tip like some of them. Sabre the lifeguard was also a star, gave some great advise on how to treat the dreaded mosquito bites which are rife this time of year so be prepared.
Went on a glass bottom boat trip with Falcon tours, across rd from hotel which was good, though the bus was a bit cramped.
The beach is across the road, not easy with a pram! Worth a trip though cos the water & sealife are a must see. You can walk out in the sea for about a mile & it still only reaches your tummy!
The local shop owners were a pain hassling you, some more polite than others. Would go back but maybe a different time of year when the mossies have gone on their holidays!

Room Tip: Room 3202 Good size, great view but you need 2 lifts so not so great with a pram.

Hotel was immaculate with excellent waterpark. Food was consistently good and varied in main restaurant. Food in Asian and American restaurants pretty poor and not authentic.drinks pretty awful, cocktails in plastic half pint glasses. Wine terrible, beer ok. Now let's talk about the 'entertainment' if Thomson don't rectify this soon they will not get repeat guests it's awful. Acrobats, belly dancers and god awful singers, like a really bad amateur night.
Thomson reps doing a great job with kids at the show every night though.
Wouldn't return to hotel due to terrible resort, there is nothing there apart from Hard Rock Cafe which lacked any real atmosphere.
We did a 'family snorkel trip'through Thomson which was a rip off. Thomson rep sat smoking on boat while we snorkelled and didn't interact with children at all.
Wouldn't return.

We went here for 1 week in mid October. It exceeded all expectations. The Hotel itself was spotless, with the room being by far the nicest we have stayed in. 20 minutes transfer time. Take £1 coins as bags on to bus means a tip. Then bags are whisked away upon arrival at the hotel with another tip!!! We expected this although some may not like it. No need for anything other than English money too as everywhere takes it. Go to SOHO, only £10 return fare with Hotel arranged taxi. You pay only when you return to hotel. Plenty of food choice, fresh individual made pizza, salad, meat, hot foods and amazing bakery and desserts. Can't wait to return. Sun sets early and almost dark by 5.30-6. Fantastic Holiday and also strip of shops on door step with hard Rock Café, TGI Friday's and even McDonalds if struggling. Beach by going through Hotel on opposite side of road.

Just got back from a two week stay at the coral sea club and have a great tan woop woop lol.

Jokes aside, me my partner and our two children Tyler and sienna had a fantastic time !!
Food was great plenty to choose from for a buffet. And the American diner was nice also. We never tried the Asian restaurant as the menu wasn't for all my family although I was told by many that it too was very nice.
The staff here are great, they can't do enough for you.. I do get why some people find the staff abit over friendly with the children but this is of no concern and I guess some people are just uptight and abit too over protective of their children. The staff try to make your stay fun that's all there is too it, granted my partner did have too give Mr splash a telling off, but he soon wound his neck in.

For me Mohammed who worked the pool bar around the wave pool was unlike no other,, his smile and service was 10star.. Both in the day and of an evening, he really did look after us and all the guests.. Drinks flowing constant.
Rami the lifeguard is great and gave us great service and fun with the kids and also Omar at the main pool looked after us when we moved to that pool.
Entertainment was more for the kids (it's a family resort) and is watchable and at times very energetic, the girls work hard.

I myself bought my quad bike trip off bob marley who can be found working down by the beach in a yellow t.shirt. (Sini tours) Don't hesitate to use him, he was cheaper than falcon and we had a better quad bike trip also out in the desert and not behind mcdonalds.
I'm struggling to find fault with this hotel, I shall definatality return again and a special mention goes to the onsite photographer (oops forgot the name sorry)
I had a gorgeous photoshoot and on the day of leaving found that the clock we had made had got damaged and smashed.. And with the coach outside ready to depart in 10 minutes, he somehow manage to get to the place it was made an get it repaired and picked it up on the journey to the airport, he wouldn't take any money from us and if you are reading this my friend, i am extremely grateful for that !!!

Stayed at this hotel with my wife and 2 sons during half term, having been recommended by my brother who has stayed with his family (2 young girls) for the past 2 years and booked for the 2014 period.
Would highly endorse to all, friendly helpful staff, good hot and cold quality food, great fun facilities, this hotel is a must which we would book again without hesitation.
The staff cannot do enough to please, from the reception desk, to the pool, room service and restaurant all make the effort to satisfy.
We stayed in a large double room, a good size that even for a 17 and 13 year old with numerous pairs of trainers and cloths. The room was kept to a very high standard by our cleaner, who still remained cheerful cleaning up after 2 boys, never realised you could make such great designs out of a few white towels, the monkey hanging from the air con was just brilliant.
The pool staff both attending the slides and serving the drinks were just superb, fun, kind and continually serving cold drinks throughout the day, Mohammed you never brought me one warm beer during the12 days thank you, Omar thanks for your prayers before I descended down the Boomarang for the first time!
We ate at all restaraunts, and again the service and quailty of food was to a good standard, how the waiters remained calm and contunied smiling at another plate being dropped must have been testing at times, but again always smiling. Do not be put off by the comments below of staff being over overfamiliar with children, it's both disrespectful and untrue.
We ventured out of the complex a few times to the beach and shops, access to the beach can be via the Holiday Village (provided it's before 5pm) or a pathway to the left of the HV. The pathway is perfectly safe and well used by numerous tourists, it is also lit up in the evenings and patrolled at the top by a guard and security gate. You can use the Coral Sea jetty, but have to pay to use the longer jetty next door owned by the Grand Azzure, approximately £1 a must if you like snorkelling.
The only few downside points for me, entertainment in the evenings for adults was poor, (sorry, but Butlins is far better) although the young kids seemed to love it, and improvements did appear to come about with the arrival of the Winter Animation Team. Mosquitos and flies also seemed to be at large this year, having never experienced this problem in Egypt before, my wife and younger son really did take the impact of bites. In fairness to the hotel, they did blanket spray every evening around 5pm. The hotel cash machine also caused a few problems for us and a few others (Bank of Egypt) in that it went through the motions of paying out, but never actually delivered the cash, so be careful always ensure you get a receipt, there is a bank 2 minutes walk across the road.
All in all, and expressed by so many others commenting, a great hotel that has so much to offer, a credit to the other hotels in Sharmn and around the world.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2029 which overlooked the Private Pool, sunnyside of the hotel, second floor
