coral sea resort - jan 2013
"good hotel. excellent location on beach. clean in all areas. great friendly service. food pretty good but could be better. no ice cream in main restaurant at dinner and desserts could be tastier and healthier. Banana crumble still there every day and not that great! Ahmed who cleaned our room did us some fantastic towel arrangements! The room was very big - i went with my mum and we were given a family room which wasnt ideal as we would have referred a twin. I had the king size bed and mum slept on a single bed which i think was meant for a child and resembled something you would see in hospital - no headboard, but mum said it was comfy! grounds/gardens beautiful. pools beautiful. Animation team good however it would have been nice to have some older reps to represent age ranges. Finnley's Bar needs a big update - miserable looking - a lick of paint would work wonders! Got a lot of attention from Spa staff and beauty salon staff in terms of touting for business which was a bit overpowering and sometimes unwelcome but i suppose they have to get business! It was probably because the hotel wasnt that full. Heard rumours that hotel is to be turned into more of a family resort due to new aqua park being built which would be a shame as the hotel is obviouslyt very popular. Would not recommend visit to Old Sharm Market - ripped off for drinks in cafe and only same things to buy as in Naama Bay but further from Nabq Bay."

"My baby came down with severe gastroenteritis and is still not better after several days, now my husband has it too - the resort was rife with it.
Gardens and pools nice, although after talking to some other parents it seem that the staff were not taking their cleaning responsibilities seriously.
The service was good, the staff friendly and helpful (especially if you tipped them!). Location ok, but we went for snorkeling so gutted the underwater environment resembled the Med e.g. desert-like. Room ok, airer would have been good.

Had a great time
"We,ve just got back.Found all the staff great from the cleaners up to the managers,everyone of them was welcoming and helpful.
The food was good with a lot to choose from.The pool area was kept clean,only bug bear was the pool bar closed at 5-30 and the pool at 6.When the temps are hot you want to be in the pool for longer"

"Im very surprised by some of the more negative reports about this hotel. I came home yesterday and will definatly be booking to go back.
I have no complaints at all. The food was great, especially the 'Mermaid' at lunchtime. Ok, its a bit different from what you get at home but whats the point in booking to go abroad if you only want McDonalds?
The staff are helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The place is spotlessly clean. Wonderful swimming pools and great location. I was there with my sister and her 2 young children, they loved it and cant wait to go back.
If there was one negative, it would be the evening entertainment. That was quite poor and we spent a lot of time simply relaxing on the terrace and having a drink.
Its not Magaluf and wouldnt be great for groups of young people but thats great, no drunks, no trouble, just a nice relaxing location.
We are going bcak."

A Christmas Break
"We stayed at the hotel from the 22nd to the 30Dec 2009.
We fancied some sun through the Christmas break.
So first the weather- 24-30degC nice and hot, a little windy but still warm at night.
The hotel was exactly what we expected, comforting, large and two nice sized pools with the beach a walk across a path.
The food was well presented and as long as you looked, varied (it was a little better than the pontins yacht class).
The room was Spacious and clean, although the shower head was troublesome.
Entertainment was a little iffy, but it's a cheap hotel, what would you expect.
Service was ok, bar staff were attentive and got to know your drinks.
On the subject of drinks- the locals are not permitted alcohol so branded spirits and lagers are not on the menu, own brands are pretty dissmal, but this is the case in most hotels and the larger franchised pubs serve named brands at a price!
For a cheap christmas break it ticked most of the boxes, infact we're going back to egypt this Christmas (different hotel).
This hotel would definitely be on the recommend list, just don't pay too much for it."
