We spent a lovely 10 days at Aqua Blu 22nd Feb to 4th March, 5 adults and our 15th mth old grandaughter. Our first trip to Sharm and can only agree with most other reviews. The place is huge and you really do not need to go out of the grounds. Our rooms were spotless and a nice size with good sized balconys, free air con & safes, clean towels every day and if you want clean pool towels or anything else just ask and they are delivered quickly. My daughter had a room quite away from us and not so nice and with 2 flights of steps with a buggy was not ideal but on asking to change this was done on the 2nd day and closer to us with no steps. We overlooked a quiet pool and the reception area, the grounds are kept immaculate and all pools had life guards as far as I could tell at all times. Waterslides are great fun and always a sunbed to be had. My husband always suffers with bad stomach wherever we go abroad but was only poorly for one day and the rest of us had no problems, food was fine, there was so much choice, we had a couple of fussy eaters but always found something to eat, we mainly ate at the Mediteranean or the Italian. Freshly cooked omelettes for breakfast & fresh crepes or croissants were lovely! pizzas in the Italian for dinner also come highly recommended. Alchohol was a little dissapointing and will admit as others the spirits were not great, beer was fine but not always as cool as one would like, I found the white wine was fine and if you drink coffee lattes and cappucinos were really nice. You will get asked on several occasions to go to the spa/beauty rooms and to go on trips etc I had a birthday whilst we were there so us girls went for a spa and it was lovely, I also had a pedicure & manicure but wouldn't recommend this as they didnt seem to have quite grasped the idea and I had to go back as I wasn't satisfied, it was redone but not great. Just say no thanks and they will leave you alone. We did get bitten by mosiquitoes a few times even though we sprayed ourselves and had plug ins in our rooms and unfortunately my grandaughter had a reaction to the bites although they didn't seem to bother her but on the safe side we took her to the clinic and 25 quid later had cream and medicine for her, well worth it for an infant. We booked a taxi from the hotel to go to Soho Square one evening which was an area of shops, entertainment etc all very nice but not really child friendly although good as you do not get hassled as you do in other areas outside the hotel. Weather was great except on our 2nd from last day we had a thunderstorm but didnt trouble us too much. We would all definately return to the Hotel.
