The Coral Sea Aqua Club is a huge, sand-coloured building. It’s just a 2-minute walk from the lively restaurants and bars in the El-Khan district, and less than a 15-minute stroll from the nearest sandy beach.
There are 2 big swimming pools here, one of which is a wave pool. You’ve also got 2 paddling pools for little ones. The main talking point, though, is the onsite waterpark, which features a bowl slide, a wave pool, a lazy river and a kids’ splash zone.
The hotel’s rooms are stylish and contemporary, with mocha-coloured walls, teal throws and dark-wood headboards. They’re nice and spacious, too, with furnished balconies as standard.

2 outdoor pools
The pools here are huge, so you'll have plenty of space to take a dip or leisurely swim. One's even a wave pool. The sun terrace wraps around the pool, and is dotted with plenty of sunbeds and parasols so you can enjoy a day lazing by the pool.
Spend the day trying out the rides here, with a wave pool and lazy river for some chilled out fun or a bowl slide, multi-lane slide and speed slide for a few more thrills. There's also a children's splash area so the whole family can enjoy the waterpark.

CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN !!!
I have stayed in Nabq bay before but can truly say that this is an OUTSTANDING hotel. We have just got back from a weeks holiday (15/4/2014 - 22/4/2014, room 3301) and I was a little worried given my last stay at a DIFFERENT hotel but have been bowled over by the Coral Sea Aqua Club. The food was excellent, presentable, hot (or cold depending on dish!) and continuously being replenished. There was an amazing variety every single night, there is NO reason why anyone should go hungry, none whatsoever! The breakfast selection again was excellent, you are spoilt for choice, as was the lunch (albeit it was too hot for me to eat - but my daughter had a wonderful time with all the food though!) The pool areas were immaculate as were the gardens, the only gripe is the 'sun bed' issue. (which is worldwide!) No beds are allowed to be reserved before 8am but unless your down there at 8am you may not be exactly where you would want to be and it was common knowledge by the end of our stay that the pool attendants were being 'tipped' by the guests to get the best spots ! All that being said the pool staff were such a lovely bunch, and had eyes like hawks when it came to kids safety which is reassuring being a parent. The water slides, flow rider and lazy river made your pool experience really enjoyable for kids and adults alike! There was waiter drink service around the pool all day so for all those lazy sunbathers you never actually had to get up and could lay there ALL day!! The reception staff are fantastic, Ahmed in the spa was delight to speak to, Fathy in the main restaurant was ALWAYS smiling and chatty and made my birthday celebrations fantastic! Mohamed and Jamal looked after our every need while dinning and Bakar our room attendant was very thorough. The staff are relentless in making your stay an enjoyable one and work so very hard, it saddened me when English people spoke to them as if they are lesser mortals, its quiet shameful really. I am so glad I chose this hotel over the sister hotel across the road (Holiday Village) for my family. I love snorkelling and the 10 min walk down to the beach was of no effort so please don't let that deter you from staying at the Aqua club. (although if the sister hotel could extend the current jetty that would be a big help to get to the reef !) We would like to say a big THANK YOU to ALL the staff at the Coral Sea Aqua Club for a fabulous holiday and with all being well we look forward to seeing you again at Christmas. We hope the same team will be there as they are the reason why so many of us want to return.More

Highly enjoyable and recommended.
I really enjoyed this resort and would recommend it to everybody especially family with children as the water park is really enjoyable and the que for the rides are tiny compared to water park in the UK or Spain. The food was great and they had a different theme each night, such as bbq, Italian and the chefs night. The waiters we brilliant and knew my family's drinks order by the 3rd day and were overall fun to be around. The rooms were always clean, tidy and we would leave wondering what masterpiece of towel art we would return too! Our bar man Amr was great as a he too knew our drinks order and would have them ready for when we left the many pools to return to the sun beds. In the water park itself the lifeguards were very friendly but professional at the same time. Alaa and Hussen made the water slide funny while queuing. Hany help people at the lazy river and made it enjoyable for the younger children as he told them there was a shark in the river. Yousef and Mostafa "king of flow rider" we very helpful in teaching me how to surf the flow rider, and they we very encouraging even after I fell of a few times. We also went for a walk to the beach during our stay. It was a 10-15 minute walk through the holiday village to a beautiful beach and crystal clear water. It was amazing and after having a little peak around the holiday village I'm still happy we went to the aqua club instead. I hope this review has helped you, and I hope you experience Coral Sea Aqua Club Resort yourself. I couldn't speak more highly of the resort and I hope to return in the near future. Thankyou you for reading my review and to anyone working at the resort thankyou for a brilliant holiday!More

Fantastic hotel, staff and food...
First time we have been all-inclusive (as we do enjoy eating out at restaurants on holiday) and we were a little concerned that we would become a little bored and feel confined on such a holiday. However, we had an amazing holiday thanks to these 3 main reasons... 1. The wonderful staff at this hotel... every single member of staff we encountered are an absolute credit to the hotel. My daughter wanted to me make a special name check to Alaa on the water slides (Ready... Steady... WAIT!) and Ameer on the lazy river and wave pool. 2. The hotel facilities... the pool areas, the hotel grounds, the water slides, bars, restaurants, rooms are all perfectly laid out and kept impeccably clean. 3. The food... in our opinion great choice, superb quality, always hot and tasty. We also visited the hotels stone grill restaurant next door, which we highly recommend. If you're anything like me and regularly check hotels reviews AFTER you have booked it (just to make sure you have made the right decision!) then I'm sure you will be delighted with this hotel. If you're considering booking your holiday at this hotel, then I cannot recommend it enough to you. We will be returning ourselves as soon as we can.More

Excellent Holiday but food lets it down.
Amazing Staff which make this place. Omar around the pool is a lovely man, Mr Bean in the bag shop is amazing i could go on but i woul be here all day. This is our second visit to this hotel and we had a great time, very clean, slides keep the kids busy, day time entertainment round the main pool if you choose, great kids club. but alos a peaeful elaxing tie if you choose. what more could you ask. The family room had two bathrooms and seperate sleeping arear with a living room for relaxing. as a family it allowed you some soace from each other if needed. the only thing i can say that seems to have slipped isnce our last visit was the food. wasnt always fresh, very little choice and became repetative. would visit again.More

Fantastic and will return!!
This was our first package holiday as a family of 4 and I was dubious and a little anxious but there was no need as the staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much bother. The pirate pool was fantastic and looked after by attentive lifeguards, we met two special lifeguards during our stay, Nabil and Ahmed, they sorted our sun loungers and Ahmed provided our 5yr old with an inflatable which occupied him greatly. A special thanks to Omar on the 'big boy/girl' slides, he assisted our 5 year old adrenalin junkie onto 'boomerango'!!!! One of Daniels highlights!!! Also a special mention to Yusef on flow Rider who took Daniel on even though he was going against Doctors orders as he found out it was our last day and also Musafa who gently persuaded him! The room cleaners also deserve a mention as they are the unspoken ones, Ahmed provided our room with towel animals that excited the children as they didn't know what animal was going to be on the bed every day and Saied who took over when Ahmed went on vacation to see his future wife. The dining was great as there is great choice and if you need anything special then Chef Mohammed will see to this without hesitation, lovely man. Most of the waiting staff are happy go lucky with a bit of charm to the mixture!!! Kids club was great, Daniel went to the chocolate party and when I collected him was covered head to toe in chocolate, just the kinda fun you want on holiday so well done Kids Club!!!! Nabq bay is an up and coming resort, I would recommend everyone go to the old market as everything is a 'genuine fake' except for the personalities!!! The camel guys are great fun too, i was slightly anxious at first but they soon recognise you and have a good bit of banter. The pharmacy next to Coral Sea village is great and won't give you medicines that you won't need. The clinic on site at the resort was great, hubster had a chest infection and was on his way to recovery after a wee visit, the Dr sorts out all the forms for you.....stress free . Can't wait for our next visit to Coral Bay Aqua Club.More
