“Our First Trip to Egypt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

We have just enjoyed a very relaxing 10-day break at the Coral Sea Holiday Village.

From the minute we touched down at the airport, things were great. From touchdown to room in just over an hour.

First impressions of the hotel on arrival were good and this continued throughout the whole of our stay.

The entire hotel staff were very friendly and always helpful and eager to help in any way that they could.

The food in all the restaurants was very good and we enjoyed the Bamboo & Village Diner in particular.

We upgraded to a Jacuzzi room and were surprised at the actual size of the room, as it was very spacious. The only disappointing thing was that we were on the ground floor and the Jacuzzi was on the terrace which was very open to all of the surrounding garden area and one of the main paths down to the main pool, which put a little bit of a dampener on using the Jacuzzi, but this is just my opinion.

We frequented the adult only bar most nights and found the surroundings to be a little dated and need of upgrading.
Apart from this fact, the team of entertainers, and in particular Stevie, who works extremely hard with a sometimes very hard audience to keep us all entertained for 3 hours a night.
There was also a comedian one night that was a Peter Kay tribute act (Lee Lard). I have not laughed so much for many years. He was amazing.

The beach was only a very short walk form our room and was kept very clean and tidy. The hotel pier was very nice to walk along at any time of the day, and some of the fish that could be seen from this vantage point were amazing. We did not even need to get our feet wet. (See attached photo)

All in all a very very nice stay and we would recommend this hotel to everyone, and we will be back………..

One weeks fantastic break the weather never let us down once, which is a first for me as rain normally follows me everywhere.
Our flight and transfer was painless, & our check in was fast .
Staff really work hard to ensure everything is ok .
Our room was in block 3 (3206)which over looked the main pool.
I wanted to upgrade to a swim up room but emailed the hotel beforehand and was told the water would be cold, so I opted for a jacuzzi which was nice to relax in about 16:00 after we came back from the pool / beach.
Our room was cleaned daily & we were given plenty of towels, but I used the bath robe and slippers provided .
Plenty of water was also left with coffee & milk powder but if you drink tea I'd take your own.
The bed is massive and I slept like a log :)

Wi fi was £6 for an hour I was told you could log on and off but you have to actually use it all in one go, so opt for 15 min cards it's better. Wi if isnt free in the winter months. And it's in the lobby area.

We liked the sports bar and Andrew and the lads there soon got to know my husbands drinking habit lol ( never a empty glass )

We went out with first choice on the market mayhem trip with Adele , what an eye opener.

Adele is lovely & knows her stuff with living in Egypt for nine years there's not much she didn't know, in her office ppl have left a selection of books, creams, mags, kids beach shoes ect.

We used two of our vouchers to eat in the Indian & American both meals where very nice and I found it a nice change to the
main buffet restaurant ,

This was our first time at holiday village & Egypt but we loved it and would consider going back. But next time I'd book the swim up rooms ( we were told the block by the tennis courts gets the sun all day but not sure what block this is )
Our block 3 had the sun really early so I was glad of the jacuzzi to sit out and chill.

We didn't go outside the hotel as ppl where coming back saying they where being troubled by nearly every shop owner. ( I hate that )
Inside the hotel nog many kids about and we where told it was only 30% full ( not sure if true ) but it wasn't buzzing with people.
All I can say is we wanted a week of sun and we got sun every single day and relaxed too,I loved it and
would return tomorrow .
If anyone wishes to ask me anything don't hesitate :)
Oh I'm on Tesco network and I had no service !!!

This is our 3rd visit to the holiday village as a couple aged 26. Was very nice the hotel recognised us as return guests We tend to go term time. The hotel itself is lovely the grounds and beach are very nice what makes this hotel special is the hardworking friendly staff. The buffet food is of a good quality eggs cooked to order at breakfast along with buffet lunch also very good we only went to Mediterranean restaurant for breakfast and lunch so can't comment on main restaurant however we did have our evening meal in there twice and both times it was very good. The Al a carte restaurants are very good especially the indian the american is a nice new addition which was very good too. Weather was fab 28 every day for 2 weeks in January couldn't have asked for more. The room was very large and lovely and clean thanks to our fantastic housekeeper! All areas of hotel very clean. Just to mention our 3rd time and we haven't been sick once here! Also must mention the fabulous first choice team Stevie in the adult bar is great! As are the others Smithy, Dave Roary, Chris, Helen, Emily and Russel the Brussel are a credit to this resort! Will be returning

Just got Back from a most relaxing week in the sun a fantastic break from the English weather. Our room was on the first floor above a swim up room with great views over the terraced grounds down towards the beach the room was kept in tip top condition by the house keeping staff with two complimentary bottles of water supplied every day, some clever towel art and a smile. The only negative was a small amount of noise as one of the blocks was being refurbished but it was only during the day and it must be done sometime to keep the hotel up to its good standard. Thanks to all the staff who were brilliant from the pool man to the bar staff to the waiters and chefs who made our holiday great.

spent ten fab nights at this our first visit to Egypt, sharm, and the holiday village, what can I say, spoilt us for normal holidays, it was a fantastic experience, a hotel is just a building and the building itself is great, what makes the holiday is the people,staff etc who really work hard to ensure that you don't have too.
when you walk into one of the restraunts (not just one of the 4 alacarte on site ) you are looked after imeadiately, food is well set out and well prepared in both the main and mediteranian buildings including freshly prepared omelettes, pizza's and meat dishes etc in the evening times

you also are given vouchers for the alacarte restaurants which include an indian,chinese, stone grill American and mediterainian all are fab im sure youll have your own fav(the korma for me couldhave been more creamy and cocanutty to emulate the uk version but still nice) beef steaks lamb shanks etc all very good too

the weather for us was particularly nice we had between 26 -32 the 11 days we were there (13th to 24th jan)
the rooms were cleaned daily and we were lucky enough to get one of the junior suits which was huge and included slippers and bath robes which was a lovely touch.
special mention starts with the gents working in the vue (adult) bar for the duration we were there who tirelessly kept us "lubricated" during the evenings entertainment sorry cant recall the gentlemans names but the taller chap behind the bar from alexander area and the slightly shorter chap who did the leg work for us ;-) made the evenings especially relaxing.

thanks also to amyr in the main resteraunt who kept us in tea and coffee etc whilst we dined there, muhamed the towel guy was fab (good luck with the wedding in march) as were the gents by the pool bar (shwmae) and the gents who brought our drinks right up to the sunbed - how lazy were we!) also the days we were at the beach the same great drinks to sunbed service was in operation ;-)

big mention to the two lots of staff on our entertainments team including stevie,smiffy,rory , david,Helen and Emily on the eveining staff who were fantastic fun and made our evenings and the same for the daytime guys who never failed to make us laugh and kept us as busy as we wanted to be special shout to some of the same names from above also chris,rich,abbie t and the gang also brilliant people who I hope to see again.

only tiny points I would mention that would make things a tiny bit better I personally found the bed a little hard (as concrete) lol and just a suggestion a frozen glass would be novelty for the vue bar instead of ice for us tenter stomached brits (I know the water was filtered but I didn't wanna risk anything ) no bad stomachs ;-)
we are definitely planning to return only hope to meet as many fantastic couples and groups of people as we did this time and looking forward to seeing the staff again who as I said made the holiday that little bit more special, anyone staff or entertainment included who wants to facebook me please feel free to get in touch (matt thebeard summers)

Room Tip: swim up room probably pointless for January as the pool temps (un heated) were a bit chilly, block 9...
