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.
