I travelled from 13th-20th Novemeber and had an amazing time. From the moment we arrived with the buggies to our room and the suitcases being dropped of untill departure. The rooms were lovely and spacious. We had a pool view with no trouble getting sunbeds at all even after 10am. The pool bar staff bring drinks to you and work so hard. The entertainment staff work very hard with the childen and in the shows. The buffett restaurant had alot of choice and we also ate in the asian and american which were both lovely. The bar staff in the evening made our holiday!! They were surperb. All in all could not fault at all and will be returning to coral sea splash!

We ended up here by mistake (we were supposed to be in Coral Sea Resort) and nearly had heart failure. For us this was a nightmare but we were only there 2 days. This is on the opposite side to the beach and as the beach is occupied by hotels the only area you can go is rocky. Also obviously as this is an all inclusive hotel you would have to buy drinks to take to the beach with you. The food is limited with not that much variety. The hotel itself was built this year and so is fantastic with lovely rooms, bar area, reception etc. Woken at 6.30am by screaming children running up and down the hallway. Overlooking the pool (as most rooms were) with extremely loud music all day long. The 'spash water slide area' is great for kids and the most popular was he 'flo rider' where you can surf. My son queued for ages for this but the staff spent more time playing on it. The animations team members, the staff member who worked on the flo rider, and other staff members who monitored other slides just came and went on the flo rider whenever they pleased. As a result my som queued for over an hour (in the heat) to go on this, there were only three other people in front of him but he had to wait whilst the staff 'played'. He fell off almost straight away and was told his turn was over. Appalling. We also had a 17 year old daughter and some of the male staff constantly asked how old she was whilst they leered. One staff member 'Charlie' laid on top of her whilst she was sunbathing, (on her tummy). We were disgusted and told him to bugger off (not that politely). This hotel was not for us as we prefer the more relaxing holiday. I have been to Butlins and to me it was just like that. If you want the beach holiday then I would advise against this hotel.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms if you like to relax. You can always here the music and noise as all rooms overlook the pool area.

Just back from this resort 18th Nov and in the face of a surprising number of positive "reviews" feel I must set the record straight or at least present an alternative perspective.
First the good news - this is a family orientated resort and the kids do seem to love it. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and with excellent air con. The gardens and buildings being fairly new are relatively well kept. The pools were clean and in general the staff were very helpful. The Asian diner we found to be superb and the kids menu at lunchtime kept them (and many adults!!) happy - the various breads were always delicious. At off peak times, the service was exceptional. The animation team were very hard working and enthusiastic engaging well with all guests. Smoking was not allowed inside any of the buildings.
The negatives - its a tiny resort, much smaller than implied in the brochures. The Payeta beach can only be described as desolate with even the staff joking about it, its also further away than the 1/2 kilometer claimed and you need to pay for food and drink when you (finally) get there!!.
Food - lacks variety and quality - biggest dissapointment, same stuff with a slightly different sauce, soups are mostly tasteless, beware the infamous "home made chips" they are frequently undercooked to the point they are inedible (this includes the potato skins in the American diner by the way). We had numerous issues with dirty glasses, cups and cutlery - bit of a worry. The lounge bar we called the departure lounge as it was totally devoid of atmosphere - it was so bad that, despite being all inclusive, we went out into Nabq visiting Bar one, Vista and Bus stop bars - all are recommended and we had a great time.
The resort was half full yet the service at peak times became a little frayed with orders being forgotten and drinks not being refilled - occasionally the staff got a bit hot under the collar.
Dont understand other reviews saying there was no queuing for pizza or "specials" - there most certainly was!!
Nabq - Nowhere near Naama Bay or even the half finished Hurghada in terms of facilities - we have stayed in both these area in the last 18 months.
The pool - loungers packed like sardines, no space or even minimal privacy - tormented by flies by day and mosquitos at night- as for the music at the pool - too loud and too bland.
Hassle - Fed up telling staff we did not want a massage - this is hotel staff, not outsiders by the way
Conclusion:-
For a family holiday or scuba divers - 3.5 stars - kids love the water!!
For couples - 3 stars - you can do better in Naama

I was looking for a hotel in Sharm for 4 days. And as it was holiday and the feast their was no reservation form 8 to 12 November I found one night in this hotel, it has no beach and I said I will stay for one night only and will go after that to another Hotel which is beside the beach. The hotel said that I may use the beach of the Hotel in front of them, which is owned by the same company. I stayed for one night but my husband and daughter and son didn't enjoyed it very much and didn't want to leave so we stayed another night. They preferred to stay the 4 night their it is a very nice place and a very very friendly staff and nice food. The water games are very amazing and if you have children you will enjoy this place. My husband decided to stay for two days in this hotel any time we visit sharm in the future.

Room Tip: my room was pool view and it was very nice
