I have very recently just returned from a week at Iberotel Aquamarine with my partner.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful. It is true what many people say, the hotel is immaculate. There were staff constantly cleaning, even at nearly 1am in the morning the pool staff were still scrubbing!
The hotel is huge but you soon find your way around. It makes it very peaceful and its never overcrowded even though when we arrived we were told there were over 3000 people there., it never felt like it.
I really cannot understand people who moan about the main Topaz Restaurant. We ate there every night and yes at main peak dinner times it can get a little busy but there are never any huge queues and there are always tables available. There is also a adult only area in the restaurant which is more peaceful. The food itself was fine. Okay there may not have always been a huge choice but it was always well cooked and tasty. I have stayed at many all inclusive hotels before and I really liked that they kept all of the hot food in large silver trays which always had a cover over them. This kept the food very fresh and no sign of flies or anything.
All inclusive drinks were fine. My partner stuck to the Beer which was of local brand but he had no problems with it at all. I varied between the cocktails and rose wine, all which were very nice for local tipples! The bar staff are great, they will always find you a table if it is busy on the upstairs outdoor bar. A special mention to Moeman, who looked after us every night. He would always remember our drinks orders and as soon as we had finished a drink, he would be there with another one for us.
People moaning about how cold the swimming pools are?? We went in all of the main big pools and I don't think they were heated but they were absolutely fine. I have stayed at other hotels before where you can't even get in the pool because its so cold! The pools here are also the most cleanest I have ever swam in!
Whilst away we did have one problem which was that my partners suitcase did not arrive until 3 days into our holiday. This was not Thomson or the hotels fault at all, but another special mention to Mohammed, Holly & Vicky who were our Thomson Reps. I honestly have never meet 3 people who are so willing to do everything they possibly can to help. They really deserve a massive thank you.
We would definitely return to this hotel again if visiting Egypt, and we wouldn't even bother looking at any other hotels we would come straight back to the Iberotel Aquamarine.
