Loved every second, food is great, staff are great, room was lovely and the lazy river is the best invention ever!! Fabulous location! The only negative was the service in the American restaurant, it was a bit sloppy however the food was wroth the wait! Definitely looking forward to going here again!More
First trip to the Red Sea, kids report they had the best holiday of their lives !! The Wino's team also loved it
Overall close to excellent, very clean, superb food ( took more than a week to get bored as there was so much choice ). Generally the staff were all very friendly, the slides were great fun and the surf machine amazing ( ladies in bikini's make sure you put a T-shirt on ! ) Access to the beach across the road and through Coral Sea Holiday Village. Entertainment not up to West End standard but the Thompson Team were such good fun... ( Thanks guys!! ) and made the evenings enjoyable with a little help from the parents and children... Be warned, the mini bar is chargeable, best to ask them to remove whats in there and purchase your own and use the fridge. Also be warned that the Spa staff will politely ask you if you would like to use their services. They will then try and charge extortionate prices ( I got quoted Â£50 for a half hour massage ) Eventually, with some negotiating I paid Â£26 for a full hour. Don't pay more than you would at home, remember, the staff will be on Egyptian wages ( very low ), be sure to tip the therapist directly if you receive a good service as I did, and not the chaps on the front desk.
Also, the waiters are very helpful and do like English pound coins for tips.
It was our first trip to Sharm and if we come back we will definitely be choosing this HotelMore

Good Family Hotel
We spent a week at this hotel with our 23 month old and four year old and had a great time.
This was our third trip to Egypt and our first with the children. I'd say if you have young kids (under seven) then this is a great hotel and area. If you have older children, who are interested in snorkelling then the location of this hotel isn't great.
We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of our room. We had booked a double family room and expected the children to be sleeping in a partitioned area but they had a separate double room.
There was lots of space. The room was on the first floor (where the swim up rooms are) and we had to use a lift to get the pram there but the trade off was worth it as it was a nice quiet area away from the hustle of the main pool. This was perfect when the youngest was having a nap. If you let the staff know at the top bar that you are on your terrace they will bring you drinks.
The highlight of the hotel is the Aqua Park. Our four year old was never bored and had a great time on all the rides, including the Flow Rider.
The pools are also great for younger children.
We used the kids club and the creche. Both were great. Be aware that they can only take limited numbers at both. You can book the creche but the kids club is first come, first served.
The entertainment during the day was good. There was always something happening but it wasn't too in your face so you could sit around the pool and feel relaxed. The evening entertainment is about the kids and aimed at the under 8's. It was perfect for us but I'd imagine if you had older kids you'd be looking for more.
The food was good. Always lots of choice and variety. We did go to the American but the standard of service and food was appalling. The Asian was fantastic though and worth a visit.
We did a bit of exploring around the hotel. The main drag is pretty grim but if you go across the road and through the sister hotel and down to the beach you can walk for miles in either direction along the sea front. There is lots to see and do down there and it is well worth a visit.
If you are interesting in snorkelling then this isn't the beach for you. There is a handful of fishes (in Red Sea terms) to be seen under the jetty at the beach. You can walk to the drop off from a jetty to the right of the hotel (sea at front and about two or three jetty's along). We had a look but it was a very rough day with strong currents so didn't go in the water. On a good day you could snorkel there if you were experienced.
In the end we spent a couple of mornings at Sharks Bay public beach where you can snorkel off the beach and can see some stunning underwater life. We caught a blue and white taxi for 50 Egyptian (tell them you'll pay 30 and then negotiate). We paid 50 Egyptian for three sunbeds but it was well worth it for the snorkelling.
We'd recommend this hotel for people with young children, looking for a bit of sunshine and relaxation.More
Fabulous Easter break
Just spent 10 days with family at Coral Sea Aqua Club and had a wonderful time. Two young boys 5 & 2 loved it and so did their parents and ourselves (grandparents). Plenty to do, staff brilliant, couldn't do enough for you, hotel clean and food amazing. Even the fussiest eater could be satisfied. Thomson staff work so hard and their entertainment was good. Would highly recommend it to anyone.More

3rd visit still as amazing! Can't wait to come back for fourth visit
Just returned from my 3rd visit! Again a brilliant holiday... Welcomed back by all the staff who again remembered our names. Thanks to Mahmoud and khaled on reception for giving us the rooms we requested. Thanks to Mohammed, Mahmoud, Jamal, Aziz and Peter at reception as well for making us all smile and laugh every time we walked through reception. Thanks to Caroline on guest relations for all her countless hours of help-any issues (not that we had any) go and see Caroline and its solved as quickly as possible in a polite and friendly way. All the staff go out of their way to help you. Thanks to all the restaurant staff. All the life guards and the majority of the bar staff are really friendly and polite. Going to book this holiday again for the end of the year and don't know if I will ever holiday anywhere else again, it will definitely be hard to beat!More
