Went to the aquamarine for 1 week from the 21st to the 28th of September 2012 with Thomson. My wife and I took my son for a week away in the sunshine and we were amazed at the size of this place. We were told that the maximum capacity was approx 3,600 and to be fair it felt quite full while we were there. In my opinion the food was good but not excellent probably due to the fact that they had to cater for so many people. My wife had an upset stomach for one day but my son and I did not suffer at all. The Italian a la carte restaurant was beautiful but I was not overly keen on the seafood restaurant. The entertainment in the evening was very good compared with other hotels we have stayed at in Egypt. The staff at the hotel were always very polite, helpful and would do anything they could to help. The aqua park was brilliant and my son absolutely loved it. There was never an issue finding a sun bed as the place was so big.
There were a couple of issues while we were there although they were not major. On two occasions our towels were taken from our sun beds. The first time we had only gone for a quick swim and returned to find two towels had gone missing. The second time we had been in the same place all day, went for a swim and returned to find one missing. It caused a little inconvenience for us although the hotel staff helped us to sort this out. The second issue was as we were checking out I was informed that we had run up a £55 mini bar bill which seemed very excessive as we had only eaten a few bars of chocolate and a couple of drinks.
In summary we really enjoyed our time at this hotel and would definitely return again in the future but would not touch the minibar this time.
