My husband and I travelled with our 3 sons, partners and 5 grandchildren to the coral sea splash resort on 25th Feb. We had a fantastic holiday with everybody enjoying the slides and wave pools and the pirate ship. Food was readily available all day and there was always something to suit all. The waiters especilly Mario and Daio were great and were very friendly and helpful all holiday. Our cleaner Reda was great and was there straight away when 1 grandchild had an accident!! What can I say about the Animation team!!! We had a great night every night at the childrens disco and the entertainment that followed. Special mention to Rachel, Larissa, Cheryl and Nemo! Kids club was great for the 5 year old too.
Our rooms were lovely and very clean and had everything you needed. we used Falcon tours and found them a lot cheaper than Thompson and very helpful and friendly.
All in all a GREAT HOLIDAY and would recommend to all.

I went to coral sea splash with my husband, sister in law and my 18month old daughter, between the 28th feb-7th march
I was a bit nervous about factilites for the baby i.e bottle warming,food etc but all the staff were amazing and catered for our every need.
The food was ok- standard all inclusive food. They had severel BBQ's over the week and they were lovely. The two al-a-carte resturants served lovely food it was the best asian i have ever eaten. We went down to Hard Rock Cafe for lunch of day just for a change it was resonably priced, serving standered american food.
The water park and pools kept my daughter and husband well amused allowing me to have quality sun bathing time. The only bad points about the pools is, only the wave pool and main pool were heated, the kids pool and lazy river were absoulty freezing, although it didnt stop us going in them it would of been nice if they were a bit warmer.
We had a double family room it was lovely and clean and very spacious. The housekeeping staff restock the bottles of water every day. The mini bar is quite expensive but if you empty the fridge and tell the house keeping staff to take the food away they are more than happy, we then put our bottled water in there.
All of the staff in the hotel are so nice, they will bend over backwards to make sure you have a excellent stay. The waiters in the main resturant are fantastic especially Mario ( he wears white glasses). The pool bar guys bring around drinks on a tray throughout the day.

Now for the wonderfully amazing animation team- what can i say they are so fantasic at their jobs. Luke, Bob, Kimo, Cheryl, Racheal, Larissa and Caz truley made our holiday more fantastic then what is was already. Kimo is as mad a box of frogs, but puts a smile on yor face all day. The mini disco was great my daughter loved it! She was up dancing on the stage from when the
music started until it stopped, they even came out when we were leaving to say goodbye. The are all just so amazing x.
Thankyou for making this holiday truley special.

From Freyas mum

Room Tip: We had a double family room (3120) it was a real suntrap.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks from 14th Feb Till 28th Feb and it was amazing. It was by far the best hotel i have ever stayed at and i have stayed at alot of brilliant hotels!

Food- The food was nice. There was alot of variety. There is no bacon however there is beef bacon but as we were leaving we found out that they did bacon rolls up the road in an english bar. The breakfast was very nice, there is a selection of fruit, cereals, pastries etc, and there is also poached eggs, omelettes, pancakes etc. Lunch was fab, chicken curry is exellent, Dinner is good. We went to both the american and asian restraunts, they were both brill however we personally prefered the asian because the staff were more friendly and the food was more enjoyable. I had ordered the prawn red curry dish which was delicious and i had asked the waiter Mohamoud if i could try a small portion of duck because i had never tried it before and he brought out a full portion of duck complete with the plum sauce, pancakes/wraps and the salad which i though was lovley even though i didn't eat it all. The american was good but i wouldn't reccomend the cheesecake as it isnt cheesecake, it is victoria sponge.

Staff- All of the staff were so so amazing apart from 1, one member of staff that worked on the slides said to my self conscious, teenage daughter that he thought she was heavy, i found this nasty and inappropriate. However the rest of the staff where flawless. The animation team were abserlotly lovley, Racheal, Bob/Ehab, Kimo, Cheryl, Caroline, Luke, Larissa, they made the holiday perfect and i would book again just to see them again. I think Thomson are making a HUGE mistake by replacing the current entertainment/animation team with their own entertainers! All the receptionists are lovley and they were all so helpful, Mahamoud at reception made us laugh. Nabil the waiter around the pool was lovley, he was funny and was always offering you a drink, his service was brilliant! The waiters in the main restaurants were amazing, they were always asking if you needed anything, I hope all waiters in the main restaurant get credit of how amazing they are. Jimal, Mohammed were great. The photographer was friendly but could get annoying at times. The lobby bar was great, staff always encouraging a good time, my family and i got the party started by dancing on tables and on the bars lol, the waiters were great fun and joined us, then all the other guests joined in haha, it was great!

Pools/Slides- Pools are very clean. The main pool had activitys going on every few hours. The slides are really really good fun. The flo-rida was amazing, such a good laugh, the staff helping on the florida were helpful and very nice people. The swim-up rooms are good however we didn't really use ours as we were down the pool all day and when we got back to the room we got ready straight away for the evening. The swim-ups are lovley and i loved having one but i wouldnt book one again, purely because we didn't use it, the swim ups are also quite cold. The wave pool was fun, it was very warm however it was always full with kids but its to be expected as its a family hotel. The main pool had more adults and kids between 7+ and the wave pool have ALOT more young people around. The lazy river was great, very relaxing however it was cold but you dont notice it because your not really touching the water that much as you are in a rubber ring.

Rooms- Rooms are lovley, spacious and SPOTLESS! The cleaner was very helpful and attentive, very friendly. There are hairdryers provided that are very good so you dont need to take your own. The tv in the rooms have movie channels in english. The cleaner left towel art in our beds which was a nice touch. We booked a swim-up room and requested to be near to our friends room however we were probably the furthest room from their room so we complained and got moved nearer to them and we were put in a luxury room which was nice.

Entertainment was good. The animation team did an amazing job on putting on a good show! They were so enthusiastic. They were some of the nicest people i have EVER met, they are: Cheryl, Racheal, Bob/Ehab, Kimo, Luke, Larissa! They are all amazing.

The hotel has no free wifi but that didn't really matter. One of the men in the shops selling fake handbags threatened to kill one of our friends, we wasnt sure wether it was a joke or not but if it was we didn't find it very funny.

Overall this has been the best holiday i have ever been on. I cant wait to go back in October! Thankyou to everyone who made this holiday amazing x

We took our 4 year old grandaughter for a 2 week holiday. She is very shy with strangers and we would not normally go all inclusive but we had a fantastic time. All the staff are amazing from the cleaners to the reception we could not fault any of them, The animation team do a fantastic job and will try to get you involved daily, we did not do an awful lot ourselves, a couple of water aerobics and the afternoon quiz but there is something for everyone. Reading other comments I cannot believe that Thompson / First Choice would want to put their own animation team in place, why? We were delayed by 24 hours going home and stayed at the Jaz Mirabel for one night and comparing the two, if you want a family holiday go to the coral bay splash, better beds and food in our opinion. On the flip side if we did not have children with us we would not visit Splash as it is a very family driven resort.

Room Tip: Ground floor if possible away from main pool

I have just come back from a fortnight at the Coral sea splash, originally a party of 6 but a surprise visit from my sister and brother in law made us a party of 8 which included a 17month old and a 4 year old and myself being 6 months pregnant.
The staff cannot do enough for you and make a real fuss of the children :) the waiters also love birthdays so if your the shy retiring type avoid advertising it's your birthday at all costs!! My twin and I celebrated our 30th whilst we were out there and slunk off to the Hard Rock Cafe down the road to avoid the drums and singing.
The food is always fresh and there is plenty of choice and the two on site restaurants (american and asian)are well worth a visit!! The Hard Rock Cafe and TGI Fridays are a 2 minute walk away if you do fancy venturing out and both have again fabulous food and service!! TGIs doesn't have an alcohol licence so no alcohol but plenty of slushies,mock tails and fresh milk shakes to be had.
Again the hotel is beautiful and the staff can't do enough for you and we have all come home saying best holiday ever and Definately intend on returning!!!! Special shout outs to Remy,Mario,Mr Shandy and Keemo who is an absolute nut job who always gets you laughing!!!
The day spa staff however will annoy you the first day and then on the whole leave you alone excepted Ahmed who you will know by always being dressed in white with a very rude and ignorant personality his favourite selling tactics are to either be insulting about your features or hard sell to the children who of course will want anything that costs :D
Amazing holiday made all the better by the majority of the staff.
