5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

I have just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely hotel (22/4/12) with my husband and two children aged 14 and 12. We have been to Sharm on several occasions before, staying at another hotel, but we decided on the Aqua Blu because of all the facilities on offer to occupy the children. It certainly lived up to all the excellent reviews and we are looking to book again for October.

From the minute we arrived we were greeted with smiles from all the helpful staff. Check-in was quick and efficient and we were shown to our room (7114) in no time. I have to say we were a little disappointed with the room on first inspection as it was rather small and the bunk beds were in the way and difficult for the children to manage. We decided to make the most of it as we were al tired and review our options in the morning once we had looked around the large complex. The next morning, after a difficult nights sleep in a room we all agreed was unsuitable for 2 adults with 2 older children, we spoke to reception who allowed us to look at 2 different rooms on the complex before we made up our minds about relocating. One of the rooms was a water bungalow and although very nice, we opted for a family room (3128) with 2 interconnecting rooms which had 2 bathrooms, 2 TV's, 2 fridges etc as this was more appropriate for us now the children are getting older. This room was more central to the main buffet restaurant but ideally situated for the quiter pool so we opted for that. We had to pay a supplement of around £65 per day for the family, however we all agreed it was worth the money for the space and facilities we received.

The sunbeds are the best we have ever experienced at any hotel, they were large and topped with a thick, white, leather look mattress which was luxurious to say the least. There never seemed to be a panic for the sunbeds and I was out around 7.30 each morning being a sun lover and never observed any chaos. Unfortuneately the pool developed a leak and had to be drained which was not ideal but hey, these things happen. Just as we were leaving it was back up and running again and all the sunbeds and pool area had undergone a big clean up and looked beautiful. I cannot fault the cleanliness of this hotel, staff everywhere were always cleaning and making the communal areas spotless.

The food was ok and there was always something to be had, I dont think it was gourmet but satisfactory and as I was watching my weight, this suited me. There was a large salad section, lovely breads and pastries, and lots of chicken and beef dishes too. We did eat at the smaller Asia retaurants but found them too quiet as most people had started to return home and the food turnover was too slow to make the food attractive. We accept buffet style food for what it is so all in all no real problems. Non of our party had any tummy upsets as is common in Egypt so that speaks volumes. Drinks were ok, apart from the small cups, the Sakara beer was from bottles which we thought seemed stronger to us than the draught version we have had at other hotels. We got 4 bottles of water in each fridge every day and there was plenty more available in the various restaurants.

We enjoyed all the slides, although the water was quite cold, and it was a trek carrying some of the larger rafts up to the higher slides and quite wet and slippy. There are plenty of slides for all ages and ability.

All in all I would strongly recommmend this hotel, book it you wont be disappointed, dont look for little faults just enjoy yourself. We shall certainly go back again, my children loved it. I cannot thank the staff enough from the cleaners to the barstaff and reception people who ensured we had a brilliant time.

Thank you and see you in October!!

We have just returned for a week at the Aqua Blu. After an initial mix up with the room we were given a room in the main block which i can highly recommend to be central to everything - the hotel is big and our room was great facing King Kong!!!
The staff were excellent and all worked so hard o make it a great stay - special mention to Mohamed by the wave pool - a fantastic time who worked so hard cleaning up yet always had a smile and a chat.
The kids club was totally fantastic my daughter was 7 and still enjoyed daily activities such as races on the lazy river, outdoor gymnastics, t shirt painting mini disco and so many more. Not only do the staff do the kids entertainment but also daily aqua aerobics, dancing by the pool volley ball and more - a total credit to the hotel and the best we have ever had!
As others say take repellent as they bite badly!!! And pleanty of sun cream it just seems to soak in so quickly and needs topping up alot.
Lots of great slides well supervised by life guards making sure its fair to get a ring. Kids pools equally good.
sand buggies in the desert and the dolhin show both well worth doing as was star gazingin the desert. If your little ones just want a go on a camel one comes with a horse to the hotel every day by th wave pool - I kid you jnot and is 20 eqyptian pounds - roughly £2 or a ride and great to take photos.
Brilliant stay and brilliant hotel highly recommend!!!
One word of warning about the airport in the toilets by baggage collection there is an egyptian in both male and female toilets charging £1 to go to the loo and they are pushy. A lady in front even had the women in her purse - be firm and say no and dont open your purse there is no charge they are just making money and can be intimidating!!!
every other egyptian we met was lovely and toatlly appreciate a tip!

Room Tip: We had 1248 and was good over looking shrek or king kong in main block

Just arrived back from Egypt 22/04/12, was our first time there and didn't know what to expect. The resort is amazing.... from the first night I didn't see my boys they were off with other children all the time they even met them for meals all the time, myself and partner thought we was on a couples holiday! For children this is a fab place to go, the slides are amazing for all, the entertainment and life guards are brilliant with the kids. The safety around the pools was 100%. Around the resort we felt safe time at all time, security is really good, we even ventured outside the 2nd day to the shops outside and felt safe.

The food at the resort is good but more for the Russian's - who needs some lessons on manners. Breakfast was the best meal for us..... the buffet in the evening at The Cave is good but you will find that most evenings the meals are very similar .

The shops down by Fantasia (5mins from hotel) I would not recommend going to, the shop keepers where pushy and aggressive. Naama Bay is a must for would be fashionasta!!! you can get every kind of designer bag, sunglasses, watches, clothes etc all fake-great copies but be prepared to haggle for half the cost they want.

The staff at the hotel are brilliant especially Mohammed who will get you sun bed ready for you around the wave pool, the waiter at the Cannello bar is a pro, will always have your drink ready for you. The entertainment staff are great especially around the wave pool, they work so hard all the time and their evening shows are great for all the family.

Down side ..... drinks seem watered down?
Having to tip everywhere you go. Didn't mind the sun bed attendants, bartenders and waiters who really do have to work hard. Be prepared to give tips outside the complex - but only if you feel the person deserves it otherwise they will haggle with you for more.

Will be booking again to go back. Best holiday we have been on.
