5 of us stayed here,rooms were spacious,immaculate and very modern.Plenty of sunbeds for everyone despite us not going to the pools till later on some days.I find it hard to believe that anyone could fault the food here as there are 4 restaurants all of which cater for all tastes.We were spoilt for choice.One waiter looked after us very well when we tipped him £1 the first day,he refused a tip later on that night,so its not all about money as some people make out,although,tipping will get you better service,staff are polite friendly and very helpful,i couldnt fault anyone as it didnt matter if it was housekeeping,waiters,bar staff or even the pool cleaners,one person was as nice as the next.Not once did anyone pass us without lifting their head to acknowledge us.
Food is available 24 hours a day,so no matter what time your flight arrives/departs you will not go hungary.As stated there are 4 restaurants,the Cave Du Roi,an Italian,a Medeteranian and Indian/Chinese restaurant.One was as nice as the next,we ate in all 4 and could not find fault with anying or anyone in any of them.Bread was baked fresh as were pizzas/meat/fish.
The waterpark is amazing and having 3 teenagers with us certainly broke up the day (although i enjoyed the slides more than them lol)
i cannot find anything negative to say about the hotel and having read some of the bad reviews can honestly say that its like they are talking about another hotel.Not sure why some people found staff to be rude,maybe it comes down to the way they treat the staff,i do find that a please and thank you goes a long way,treat the staff with the respect they deserve and they will treat you the same way.
If you are going to the beach take the bus first time to get your bearings,then walk the next time as its as quick to walk as it is to go by bus,and it saves any hassle from rude russians,they are a class of their own,i dont think they know what queing is,esp at the water park,dont take any of their nonsense and if they do skip in front of you,tell them to bog off as i did,they will soon get the message.
when you go to the beach,go down the lift and walk as far right as you can and you will find the Aqua Blu beach bar where you can use your AI wristband to get all your drinks and at 1pm, lunch starts,you can get burger/pizza/pastsa/chips/salads etc.Do not let the sea breeze fool you,it was over 100 degrees when we were there,but the sea breeze can be deceiving..
all in all one of the best holidays ive had in 20 years,we will definately be back next year.I cannot find one bad thing to say about the Aqua Blu Sharm
some tips before you travel
The weather is really hot,take a hat with you and plenty of high factor sunscreen
Buy yourself a pair of wet shoes from the shop outside the hotel (Alex's supermarket) they cost £2.00 a pair and are brilliant for the waterslides and the beach.
Small egyptian notes are hard to come by..take a load of pound coins and use them to tip.
We bought snorkelling sets from poundland before we went and they worked a treat.
If you need money,there are two ATMs in the hotels reception
Have A Brilliant Holiday!
