Me my Wife, My 4 year old Daughter and 1 year old Twin boys stayed at the Coral Sea Holiday Village from the 2nd May to the 13th of May 2013, I have to say it exceeded our expectations, We arrived at the hotel around 10:30pm and we was dealt with straight away and was told to leave our cases and go and have something to eat as the restaurant was remaining open for us so we could get our fill. there was not loads of food to choose from but there was enough to get us by till morning, After we ate we was shown to our room which was in block 12, Pretty far away from everything just above a swim up room very quiet but we did have to climb two lots of stairs and with two little boys and their buggies to lug up them its a bit of a chore the room was fine though and with lovely views, the next day after breakfast I went to reception to request a ground floor room and we was moved to ground floor the next day so we was very happy with our new room block 10 right by the quiet pool, Just walk out the balcony and your there, if we went out our front door we was right by reception and the main buffet restaurant, it really is an Ideal location. The food is decent, not the best but there is a lot of selection and different every day, My wife really enjoyed the puddings and she never likes the puddings whenever we go away so that's saying something, The a la carte restaurants are ok as well the Indian was our favourite, The Chinese was a little bland, The drinks are a bit disappointing though, The Beer is nice but the spirits are terrible, they do have Pepsi, 7up and Fanta though if you like your soft drinks, The Juice is a little strong so my tip is to dilute it with some water, The cocktails are not the best a bit like syrup and very sweet. The staff are excellent very friendly and will do anything for you and you never feel pressured to leave a tip. The hotel and grounds are very clean theirs always somebody cleaning the place and tending to the gardens, there is a few cockroaches about but nothing major, the gardens are beautiful and the smell of the flowers is lovely while relaxing, the kids club is great and the Reps are brilliant with the kids, we also used the crèche and was really impressed as our Lads are a right handful and they handled them fine and they really do make your kids feel special and happy. The night time entertainment is great for kids but not so much for the adults, there is an adult bar but its empty and no atmosphere. the sports bar is ok but its not really a sports bar and it is freezing in there. the beach is ok its not sand though more like gravel, The sea is lovely and warm but I didn't see many fish. we took a trip into Soho Square one night, We booked the hotel taxi to take us as it was only £10 return and First Choice offer it as an excursion but it costs a bomb and it would be a waste of money because theirs really not that much to do there and we was done in an hour and half, We walked out the complex one day and its just people walking up to you trying to get you in their shops and not very relaxing, you don't really need to leave the complex though as theirs loads to do and the shops are not that much dearer than outside and you can still haggle. Over all it was a great holiday and would recommend it to anyone, anyone who moans about the hotel needs there head looking at because it really does accommodate for all. We are so impressed with the Holiday Village that we are making it our mission to go to them all, So we Cant wait till next year when we try out there next resort.
