Best family hotel in the area with great snorkelling?

Hi, we are a small family of 3 (two adults and a son nearly 7 years old). We are looking for a great family friendly hotel which is:

on the beach

has great snorkelling

all inclusive

is family friendly (ideally with access to a waterpark - on site or nearby - but this is not essential)

is not too big/impersonal

Can anyone recommend some hotels please? We're not too fussed where in the Red Sea as the holiday tends to be focused on the resort anyway.

Thanks in advance!

Sentido Reef Oasis Senses would tick the boxes. Its part of the Reef Oasis Beach Resort and you can use their facilities as well as the Sentido ones. The waterpark is just outside the hotel and it is located on the best reef in Sharm.

Iberotel Samaya Resort in Coraya Bay near Marsa Alam airport, small peaceful and intimate AI popular with families within walking distance to Aqua Coraya. The rooms have a seperate childrens sleeping area with proper beds.

The Akassia and Reef Oasis are H U G E resorts.

The Sentido part of the Reef Oasis is small though :)

Thanks all. We have booked the Sentido so thanks for the tips. We have already holidayed in Marsa Alam and whilst we loved it (the snorkelling is fab there), we were looking for a change! Thanks
