“Great resort for a good range of people/holidays..”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

We had a really good time at Coralia - even though it was off-season and the place was barely open we felt well looked after and really enjoyed our time there.
My family (2 adults and one 6-year-old) went all over Egypt - Cairo, Luxor, Sharm, Nuweiba - but we all preferred Dahab and this resort.
The pool has a lifeguard and is a great safe place for kids to hang out and play together. Nice mixed bunch of people - German, French and British mainly and lots of families. There is a kids club (wasnt fully functioning, but still) with toys and games and these really cute mini sun loungers for the babies to lie on!!
The resort has its own stretch of beach which is lovely - well tended and lots of loungers/umbrellas. The sea is quite cold round here though! There was a decent range of food available - with a Thai restaurant and snack place open all day. The bbq buffet was a real treat and breakfast is fun with a waffle, pancake AND omlette station.
Our room wasnt the largest (we went for the cheapest garden-view room) and we were a bit annoyed that we were initially put in a room with 2 single beds. It was on the edge of the resort - right next to a new series of rooms that were being built (very loudly!) next door. The fridge door was broken, there were no towels and our 3rd bed was a long time coming. I complained and they moved us to a slightly larger version of the same room - with a double bed and a sofa-bed that was perfect for a 6 year old.
They keep the place spotless but we did find staff a little work-shy.. especially after 8pm when they seemed to go into a 2-hour-long sulk if you ordered drinks from the main bar. The 2 other bars closed at sunset.
It was really windy while we were there and the wind-surfers loved it... There are lots of things to try out - wake boarding etc etc. I was there to relax though, and had a great time doing so.

Well, our second visit to the Coralia Club this year did not disappoint. There were still some thought’s about the recent troubles prior to making the trip, but on landing in Sharm, everything was as normal, if anything, the atmosphere was a little more relaxed that usual. On arrival at the hotel we noticed that further rooms were being worked upon in line with the overall update plans, as was part of the restaurant area where the addition of a cook to order bar was being completed. Talking with some other returning guests confirmed that the room updates have created some very pleasant layouts. We were also fortunate that our first week coincided with a festival designed to celebrate many of the charms that Dahab has to offer, the organisation and general cooperation of all involved was most impressive, not to mention some of the activities themselves. In summary, another great holiday at a location that felt very comfortable with a staff as considerate as ever to their visitors.

Also holidaying with Neilson having previously stayed in the Ganet and the Swiss.

Our room was lovely, although the lay out was a little bizarre (you walked in to the sink upon opening the door), room was larger than others we have stayed in and the balcony was big.

Amazing sea views from our room, pretty gardens, nice swimming pool (with a lifeguard).

Little things impressed me, saw someone cleaning litter off the beach, general cleanliness was good, on half board it was flexible so we could swap our dinner for a lunch.

The staff were extremely welcoming and always polite and friendly, although I would agree that at times they were a little over-attentive.

The food on the whole (served buffet-style) was good, but not fantastic. Although again better than other hotels in the area. The Thai on offer was good although quite expensive and substantially more than the fantastic Thai in town.

The bottled water and drinks were pretty pricey although this seems to be in line with a general price rise across Dahab.

Overall pretty impressed with this hotel. Thought it was good value for money and would definitely return.

Holidaying with Neilson, mainly for a windsurfing holiday. The Coralia Club has been recently renovated and the quality of the room far exceeded my expectations. The staff were extremely welcoming and always polite and friendly but at times a little over-attentive; clearing dinner plates away while others at the table were still eating. The food on the whole (served buffet-style) was good, but not fantastic. The Thai on offer was however excellent. The bottled water was pretty pricey and I'd recommending buying in bulk from the local shops.

The local town of Masbat has plenty of restaurants for authentic Egyptian Bedouin meals.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view!

The Hotel is in a prime position on the long thin beach, it has the far end of the bay where the best windsurfing can be had and the kiteboarding lagoon is situated. Also within the coralia club grounds is Franco's watersports shack which has access to two of the best wakeboard specific boats on the beach. There is also a trampoline to warm up or practice arial tricks and they offer the largest glass bottom boat trips out to the napolion reef for a very reasonable price, where you can also snorkle. Most rooms come with a sea view and if not will only be a few steps from the beach front. The appartments that you stay in are decked out with cool egypcian style bathrooms and either have a large patio or balcony for relaxing on. The beach is large and there are many places to lay in the shade in relative privacy. There is a lifegaurd on duty most of the time and the swimming area is large and includes a few cool patches of coral where you can sea many types of tropical fish (lionfish, nemofish, mini sawdfish etc. Theres a pool of large size too for people with small kids and a fear of the sea. The buffet food is fabulois both at breakfast lunch and dinner time. A chef is always on hand to cook you up a fresh pancake or omlette. There is also a mai thai restraunt for a bit of variety and we loved it. The chef even brought us icecream and fried banana as a treat once in a while. Trips into Dahab were a world away from the resort but offered excitement in barganing for your pressies and having to choose from what seemed like hundereds of restraunts. It is a litte draining however as people are constantly hastling you, so be warned. The best shops were the ones that didn't hastle you to come in, little tip there.

AN ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC HOLIDAY, THANKS APOLLO :)

This was our second try at a honeymoon. ( we had gone to Puglia In October which sadly had not felt special as everywhere had shut down for winter and whilst we were there my husband PROMSED he would arrange a proper honeymoon for us in Dahab) All I can say is the Coralia is the best beach spot . My husband windsurfed and I relaxed each morning after a great breakfast .We lived on the beach each blissful day . The hotel staff are friendly and the whole atmosphere is relaxed and happy. Im vegetarian and there was a good variety of food available each evening in the restaurant. Our initial room was not too quiet due to final refurbishments being completed but we were given an upgrade to a Superior room for our full stay when we asked, for not a huge amount more. The sea view from our room was beautiful as was the clean soft sandy beach and blue sea. I can honestly say every cliche about romance and honeymoons and paradise could be used for our stay. We arrived back today and would recommend the Coralia . We are planning to return as soon as we can .
