“dont' believe what you read - was lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We booked this holiday in january thomas cook were fab for a weeks holiday from 26th november 2012. After reading more and more of the reviews on here we actually went to cancel this holiday twice..we even thought we would rather loose the money we paid than be stuck in a pl;ace that bad for a week.
there was myself, my partner our 3yr old son and 60+ yr old mother in law and we simply loved it. We were absolutly dreading it and wernt excited in the slightest but please please dont believe all you read about this hotel. it was lovely.


ROOMS - we had a family room on the 2nd floor and it was ideal, big beds, clean and spacious, plenty of storage, tv fridge(restocked to the point couldnt drink the stuff fast enought would just put on sides if didnt have room) bathroom gorgeous tiled walking showers, hairdryers, soaps provided. there were a few i mean a few little bit eg: draws were lil stiff in cuboards but seriously there is nothing i would even mensions its only to put propective to what i have previously read.

POOL - we purposly booked this hotel as it stated heated pools. and boy were they heated the kids actuvity pool seemed to get warmer and warmer as the week went on it was literally like being in a bubble bath...and it is super save and wel thought out. our little boy slipped over being an excited 3yr old and before we knew it 2 life gurads were with him.just to point out the activity zone was not dangerious he literally lost his footing on the steps and the point to take from this is that we did not even realise there were lifegurads around it was extremly comforting and could actually relax with a 3yr old in the water.
the other pools are not heated heated..but the slides are fun, clean and safe. even when the water is cold when you get out you are to warm again.
Towwls are availble for you and recomemmend asking for a red flag at the same tim just tie it to your parasol and nobody bothers you (believe me you'l need one).

BEACH - is lovely stunning. a shuttle to the beach is fab for the kids as looks like a train and lit is just across the road. it has its own toilets, showers, snack bar towel hut, sunbeds, and parasols. the sea is clear and warm, there is coral but you are still able paddle to knee high perfect for kiddies. the jetty is there for crossing the coral and the snorkling there is fab if dived all over the world and thefish you see are amazing there is no need to pay for a trip. simply invest or bring your own snorkal and flippers though cheap enough to buy.

FOOD- okay this is were all so negective but really. the food is fresh, theres a kiddi section, pasta section soup salad, fruits and more. My son has had eating issues and only started eating solids 6months ago and he always had a plate full and always ate at every sitting and thats saying some thing.
There is a shortage of meat and cheese but ha thtas our luxery. All the dishes are cooked infront of you in the different stations and are constantly restocked. the food does get repetitve put its nice, hot and fresh so who can complain. the snack abr at lunch is basic burgers hot dogs g'bread and the only place you will find chips. the alacarte resturants are brill we went the chinese twice simply but refreshing, the italian was fab for the pizza and really broke up the week. there is also kfc, tgi, hard rock cafe, mcdonalds int he town 20mins away so no need to panic or get bored its nice to eat out even if all inclusive sometimes. We only went for a week and appriciate after 10days the food would being to get annoyinly repetitive but like i said long as there was something.

ENTERTAINMENT - we never went to any but from what we heard the kids magic show wasnt 100% thought out more adult really swords doen throat etc...entertaing and brill but not 100% for kids. the animation staff were lovely and really help you to join in.

VENTUREING OUT - naama bag is lovely but dont go there in the day as the shops simply dont open till mid afto. markets are fine but be prepared to be hasseld..and dont feel bad for simply walking away.

please please dont think this place is as bad as you think. the hotel, staff and reps are obviously aware of all the bad reviews and you can see them constantly trying to improve things..even the managment are in the dinning room asking questions to make sure they can solve any issues. o' and we never had any issues with cutlery!!

Room Tip: there are no lifts and are a lot of stairs request ground floor if want to minimize stairs or are wa...

after having our holiday at tirana aqua park hotel november 2011 when we got back home we booked to go back in may 2012 to celibrate our 65th and 60th birthdays for witch this hotel made for us and a wonderful birthday we had all the staff from the bell boys room cleaner waiters bar boy right up to the managers could not do enough to make our holiday so nice.
there are to many people to name them all. all we can say is thank you from the bottom of our hearts we also have to say that all the staff are always smiling and happy and we would like to say that we loved you all. the animation team made as feel like kids again as we joined in all the activitys and the shows at the theatre singing and dancing.
all the staff call us mummy and daddy which we also loved very much.
the cleaner for our room was very good making animals out of towels and the room was spotless. bar staff and waiters would always bring us food and drinks and management were always so helpful to us. we loved this hotel so much when we got home we rebooked to go back in november 2012 for which we will write another review.

Room Tip: we asked for the same room as we had in november with pool view and we got the same room

Three of us stayed here between the 24th November - 1st December 2012! It was the best holiday ever!!!

The Thomas Cook Reps WALID and SAMBOUK, were absolutley lovely and friendly, they looked after us throughout our stay and made our holiday. They organised the trip into Naama Bay, which is well worth the £4.00, the bars they took us too were great and they ensured we got no hassle, especially being 3 girls. They also arranged the quiz night - THAT WE WON! Come on Charlie's Angel's!!! After the quiz, there was a magic show, salsa dancing and a fire show, which was fun and Walid and Sambouk made sure all the guests were having a great time. Cannot thank them enough!!!

Ahmed from the diving school - LEGEND! Always happy with a smile on his face, and kept us thouroughly entertained throughout the holiday, even though we didn't buy from him.

Room was very clean, bell boy carried our luggage (3 suitcases) all the way to our room, down 3 flights of stairs and then stayed to ensure everything was ok.

The staff were so friendly and very hardworking. Ibrahem the bar man was lovely and always ensured we had a drink and were looked after. Alaa was lovely as well and made sure we were looked after when Ibrahem wasn't there.

Mohammed from housekeeping was so lovely, as well as cleaning our room in the morning, and making sure we had clean towels, would also come back EVERY evening to ensure that we were happy and to see if there was anything else he could do for us.

If you don't want people to come up to try and sell you things, when by the pool / beach, just ask for a red flag when collecting your towels. However if you don't have one, you do get people trying to sell to you but once you tell them no, they do get the hint, apart from the women who trys to sell the massages, you have to be abrupt with her, for her to get the message. (However she will still probably come back for more).

Food was ok, no as bad as some people make out. We are quite fussy and always found something we liked. There are 4 restaurants, Italian, Chinese, Indian and English. (The Italian being the better out of the 4, but all were nice), they made a change from the restaurant.

Would recommend this hotel to everyone, as it caters for families, couples and groups of friends alike, there is something for every taste.

We loved it so much, we are booking up to return next year!!!

Nikki, Sarahann and Jane

FANTASTIC hotel. Read alot of bad reviews before going and if im honest i was dreading it. However me and my partner both could not fault it! Airport was a nightmare, very busy and alot of people there constantly with it being such a small airport it is very crowded. The staff are very friendly, they work so hard, day and night yet they are always so helpful.Our room was always cleaned every morning, and it was left spotless. Dont see how anyone could say it was dirty?! VERY clean hotel. Facilities are bog standard however there is plenty to do outside of the hotel. The food is nothing special, just your normal cusine, however i would recommend asking what food you are eating as most of the food isnt labelled. Many places to eat outside though which we did. One thing i could say was wrong was that every pool was FREEZING, only one pool being heated which meant it was always crowded, very disappointed. Overall, me and my partner would definatly return to this hotel aas we had such a fantastic holiday. One thing i would recommend is take mosquito spray!!!

I have just came back from 2 weeks stay at Tirana Aqua Park Resort and it was exactly what I needed. The staff are all so friendly and always helpful if you have any problems, they work so hard all day and night, the pools and main lobby always looks immaculate every morning. Massive thank you to the animation team, they are wicked and I had a lot of fun getting involved in all the activities!! water polo, stretching, aerobics darts.. had so many laughs and good times with all of them!!! Desco, Bassam, DjFantom (the dj always played really good music), Sam, Migo, Arran, Julya, Danilova and Lydmila they really do work so hard and please everybody, and always keep smiling, they all give off the impression they love there jobs! they took there time to get to know you and make sure we had a good time and a laugh, which we did! lot of respect and time for them.. the only downside was the rooms, one of my draws was stuck and did not close properly which meant i was unable to shut the wardrobe to close view of the safe, and the shower was not cleanest (shower head and around the walls) apart from that the cleaner always did a good job and the room itself was spacious with a lovely pool balcony view. The bar staff and towel staff were very good to us! they are always so friendly and happy to get whatever you need

A really good 2 weeks holiday! we did get well looked after and I would definitely go again :)
