Awful.. A voucher was given to us on arrival to receive food that evening well in 15 minutes it was closing so our bags were taken to our room while we went to eat… This consisted of congealed pasta and fish which can only describe as bony leftovers!🤮Then we were taken to our room 😣. As a family of three at midnight to find only two beds so I returned to reception to have to argue with reception to get a third bed for my teenage daughter this was a fold out bed. Which they had to replace because it wasn’t suitable for a teenager as it folded in half when she tried to get up in the early hours! Sat at the pool bar to see staff being sacked having security escort them off site in front of guests around midday halfway through their shift this could have been done privately. Then the dreaded fourth day, After our evening meal the belly started to rumble, The food in all restaurants are the same dinner and tea options are limited and as you can imagine very boring with no variety.. reception sent my husband to the shopping mall to retrieve the list of medication I would need from The on site Medical Centre (first though, straight away he wanted to know if I had medical insurance and how much was my cash limit! To say I was slightly frightened / worried and feeing he was only interested I’m my upfront payment) so he wrote a list of medications I needed. Thankfully.. This pharmacy is a 50 minute walk away so my husband got a taxi. ADVISE there is a pharmacy across the road no need to go to the mall. These didn’t even touch the sides I managed to get through to our flight home on the Friday too which I was very poorly on within two hours of landing I was in A&E with the dreaded travellers diarrhoea a further three days in hospital seven IVs and a week of antibiotics as my kidneys were in high stage two near stage three kidney failure. To say that I am overly disappointed is an understatement this hotel was utterly disappointing. Especially when you get talking to people at the airport and they tell you how fantastic their hotels and food were and very accommodating..

Capacity: The resort is really busy, it was a challenge to find a place on the pool or the aqua park our only option was to use aqua vista's pool. Staff: They barely smile. Cleanliness: The room was clean and the room service were nice and helpful. Food: overall the food is below average in the breakfast, lunch and snacks, the dinner was more acceptable.

So after just quick get aways during the pandemic we really needed to get away and just have fun and chill out. Aqua Blu was just the thing we needed. All the staff were amazing and the entertainment team always had something for everyone going on. Bebo in particular was energetic, uplifting and always put a smile on our faces. The food was good quality but unfortunately repetitive and a wide variety of cultures taken into consideration which you can expect in an Eastern Country, not your typical Bristish cuisine if foods a biggy for you on holidays. You couldn't fault the standard of cleaning from the communal areas to your room and the number of facilities available including numerous pools was the best I've ever experienced. If ever in Egypt again we will be back.

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Aqua Blu and had a great time. Everywhere we went in the 3 sister hotels, restaurants, bars, receptions, pools, were all scrupulously clean with cleaning continuously being carried out. The room and bathroom were decent sizes, even with 3 adults sharing the room, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in on holiday. The complimentary toiletries were of a good standard too so no need to take up precious baggage allowance with shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The animation team were lovely, so bubbly, enthuisatic and energetic and always stopped to have a chat with us as we lay on our sunbeds. The entertainment programme was really varied both during the day and in the evening. With several pools across the 3 sites (I think we counted 12 plus 3 waterpark type pools), there really is something for everyone. The restaurants were very good too. Plenty of choice in each one and we tried them all just to add some variety. I dont normally eat cake or desserts but the choice of them on offer did persuade me to try them on several occasions! The sea food a la carte restaurant was particularly good. However I think that what makes this hotel stand out for me is the staff. They couldn't do enough for us and just about everyone had a smile on their face, spared the time to have a chat with us and just really looked after us. This was particularly evident when my friend had an upset stomach and the restaurant manager and a general manager looked after him well. A big shout out to the restaurant staff in Ali Bi, particularly Mohammed with the drinks trolley, Mohammed in the Sky Bar, Mohammed (life guard) and Ali (I think) at the small pool next to the wave pool and the bar staff at the Olympus Bar at the Aqua Vista. A map of the hotels and details of how to book the a la carte restaurants and where ice cream and pancakes were available would have been very welcome. As it was we were fortunate to be given this information from other guests otherwise we would have missed them. A great holiday and I hope to be back again at some point. .

The weather was great which I can't say about the food myself and partner are still suffering from the effects of food posioning. Hotel is nice but if you have a problem with the food it's the weather that made you ill told that by 3 managers and will try and do anything to stop you speaking to your holiday company filled in there form about the say said would not be returning they asked why and said with having got food posioning here would never come back. The food on the hot plates only has to be 60c when the food is put out so not hot enough to kill the possibility of bugs and birds flying around the restaurant eating the food told staff they smiled and walked away

Brilliant. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. Fahmy, the catering manager was excellent: really took care of my partner when he had an upset tummy. (Although this wasn’t pleasant, they really were concerned, food always seemed well cooked and hot, so this may not have been the reason) The barmen in the main restaurant (Mohammed) were brilliant. Barmen in the Sky Bar also very good. Ali and Mohammed at the small pool took great care of us daily. The hotel is absolutely immaculate throughout and the room man kept the room spotless. There’s lots of drinks to choose from alcoholic and none. Can eat in any of the restaurants on any on the complex. We are in the Al a carte one night, which was very good. The room was a decent size and from block 3 had a sea view. We shared a room as 3 adults and the put up bed was very comfortable too. Only thing that would have made our stay better would be a map and some more explanation of things like the alacarte restaurants, we only found out you could book it from other tourists. Overall a wonderful stay.

We visited Aqua Blu as was highly recommended online. First impressions of the hotel.... WOW! The hotel is grand and beautiful. There are a number of pools that we have continued to discover throughout the trip. The tui rep met us in the morning following our arrival and we were very underwhelmed by his lack of information about the hotel and was instead only interested in selling us the trips we booked 2 of the trips and one of which was not how he sold it to us whatsoever. It would have been very useful for us to have a map of the resort as well as additional information rather than what times the food will be served as this was the only information we really received as the complex is huge. As we weren't given a map, you weren't really sure where one started and one hotel finished (as Aqua Blu is next to sister hotels) so spent alot of the time while we were here looking for different restaurants. The entertainment team are great, the activities throughout the day are fun and break up the day, things like Aqua aerobics, darts and we had a colour party too which was loads of fun for all ages! The only thing to add is it isn't always clear where or which hotel the entertainment will be at so we did spend some nights either searching for where the best entertainment would be or completely missing it all together. As food goes, it was OK, highly recommend the Apollo restaurant (Aqua Vista) which is invitation only so make sure if you have the option to go you use it, and if you are a beef or chicken fan, you will be in your element as there is always these options. We also celebrated a friends 70th while here and the team were great. The birthday table and songs where amazing, definitely one to remember! We took advantage of the trip to neverlands (included in your stay) which was so good and the entertainment was amazing too. Overall a lovely holiday, the weather you cannot fault, anytime you had a problem it was resolved quickly and the team were very attentive. A special thank you to some of the kitchen team (Ali the barman, Hany AKA Mr Pancakes), the lifeguards (Mostafa the legend) and the entertainment team, you guys made this trip great and wouldn't have been the same without you.
