Reviewed March 28, 2013

We visited Aqua Blu at the end of 29th July - 12th August 2012 for 2 weeks. The entire experience from the moment we arrived until we left was fantastic.
Everyone from the cleaners, ground keepers, life guards, entertainment, restaurant, bar & reception staff were fabulous and whilst the salon staff were very eager, they remained polite at all times.
My daughter banged her head at the pool on our first morning and the life guards were not only attentive but caring to my daughter. At no point did we feel anything other than welcome during our stay.
As a family, we had no complaints about the food. There was always something for everyone and whilst, like any all-inclusive may feel repetitive they are attempting to cater to all tastes and requirements and they done so without compromising quality.
The entertainment staff were fabulous and my daughter absolutely loved Nana and Anna at kids club. They made every effort to make her experience as special as possible. The slides are fantastic and remarkably safe with life guards keeping a close eye on all the kids and the adults.
The rooms were clean and spacious and offered everything you need during your stay.
The best recommendation I can give is that we enjoyed it so much, we’re returning for Summer 2013. Hopefully the next experience will be as good as, if not better, than the last.

I stay at this hotel with friends and despite the family orientation of the resort had a great time. Everything was clean, the staff on the whole were really friendly and there was a nice relaxed atmosphere. There were enough pools to find one that wasn't overflowing with screeching kids (I'm glad they were having fun but just don't want to hear it all day.)

The only reservation I have about the place is the offensively high price for a wireless internet connection within the hotel (I was quoted £5.50 sterling for 30 minutes.) On the plus side for the price of a beer you could get unlimited wifi from Champions Bar right outside the main entrance.

We've spent 8 nights in this hotel 2-9 March and we were very satisfied with the quality of service we've received. After reading number of reviews in here I was kind of concerned about the room we will be given having in mind we've booked a promo room. We arrived very early in the morning (5.30 am) and we received instantly our AI bracelets and after breakfast we were shown 4 rooms in 4 different blocks and I can honestly say the best was actually the first room offered in the main building on the first floor looking to the shuttle bus parking. We didn't regret choosing this one as it turned out to be very quiet and in the same time close to everything. A short summary for everything else:
STUFF:
Cannot be faulted, all were funny, social, accommodating, eager to help, we couldn't ask for more. Only the animation team needs improvement: there was a bingo on one of the evenings and nobody was playing but this didn't stop them going trough all the numbers. Meanwhile everybody got bored and/or annoyed and left. Else it was advertised that there are belly dancing classes every day at 15.30h and when I've asked the tall guy from the animation he told me that the "belly dancing" was only one day of the week at 21h which was apparently the entertainment program, not the classes...
FOOD:
Healthy (at least 70%), delicious, various, just LOVELY! Never got the "Egyptian stomach". The Indian food in the Asian restaurant was absolutely authentic and delicious. Sea food night and Oriental night at the main restaurant were by far the best.
AQUA PARK:
We went there almost every single day, even after a full day diving 1h at the slides was a good treat. Never got bored!
I have just few recommendations to the hotel management:
There should be something that can be done to lower the number of flys around the pools as they can be annoying at times.
Cats should not be allowed in the restaurants. Although there were only on the outside you should know that some guests have allergy and can get affected while dinning on the terrace.
Just want to stress out that those are only recommendations nothing to detract from choosing Aqua blu for your vacation.
Thank you Aqua blu!

We have just come back from 11nights here and it was brilliant, staff were so friendly and helpful couldn't do enough for you. One night at a show there were no tabels left and a waiter (michelle I think) got a table and chairs and brought them to where we were standing, he went well above his duties to make our stay great, drinks were plenty and not watered down very strong they not stingy on it, I went with my husband and 13yr old son and they were kept happy with the water slides and pools, food not brill but ok plenty of different resturants to eat in our favorite was Italian. And they had a coffee bar which was fabulous and so were staff there always had smile and chatter for you and their lattes were to die for loved them. The weather was gorgeous so hot, lovely place to visit and would definitely go back

Just come back from our recent stay at Aqua Blu, Sharm. This was our first time in Egypt and we absolutely loved this hotel. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived until we left. The hotel was clean and well presented with daily cleaning of our room and we can only give a huge big thank you to the restaurant staff the best we have ever come across. Would highly recommend any to go.

Stayed in Sharm many times with young grandchildren and can't understand why we've not found this hotel before.
This hotel is apparently 6 years old and the aquapark is also open during the day to the paying public but it is obvious that whoever designed it had a good imagination. There are slides to suit all age groups, with fabulous smaller pools and slides for the toddlers, and much more challenging ones for the not so faint hearted!
The rooms are spacious and very well maintained, always spotlessly cleaned. The gardens are immaculate. The staff are wonderful, very attentive, friendly and efficient, especially at the kids club.
Special thanks to Chico who works all hours god sends and yet never stops smiling; Kerry for her energy and Nana for her patience with the little ones.
As usual, the food can be a bit repetitive after a while but there was always a good selection which was well presented, and plentiful. The beach is a stones throw away and the shuttle bus is fab when you have little ones with lots of baggage. The beach itself is not brilliant (no sandcastle building competitions because the sand is quite harsh in places - would recommend aqua shoes) but again, the Hotel staff treat you like royalty and will gladly cater for your needs whilst you are there. There are plenty of bars around the hotel - and one on the beach also.
As usual, one downside is the Russian holidaymakers who remain ignorant and arrogant and don't know how to say "please and thank you".
The only other downside is that there is a large mosque in the next street which has a very large loud speaker and likes to call people to prayer at silly times of the day & night - so take some earplugs.
THANK YOU Aqua Blu for a lovely family holiday!

Room Tip: Beware the very addictive doughnuts freshly made at breakfast every day

We have just returned from our 3rd visit to Aqua Blu....Our party consisted of 2 adults and one 15 year old hard to please daughter who absolutely loves this hotel as do we......from the moment we arrived it was like visiting family the staff are so friendly and genuinely welcome you back....The hotel proudly presents a 'Statement Of Intent" in the reception regarding the quality and food hygiene standards, i tend to suffer from Delhi Belly regardless of where i travel including in the UK, although not an inkling of it at this hotel....there are 4 restaurants to choose from we tend to visit the Mediterranean and Asiatic the most (which serve a mixture Curries/Kebabs/Oriental dishes and of course burger/hot dogs and chips for the kids at lunch time) although the Cave and the Italian are also excellent, in the Italian you can order your own pizza with whatever toppings you want, as with every all inclusive hotel the food does become repetitive if you stay for 2 weeks, the chefs at the hotel are proud of the food that they serve and this is apparent it the presentation, i have to mention the the Indian chef Yogesh who was a fantastically happy character that absolutely loves cooking, i fear that the chefs do not get the same feedback that the waiters etc do, so it is worthwhile speaking with them and thanking them when you enjoy the food as i am sure you will.

It was my daughters 15th birthday while we were at the Aqua Blu and we spoke to the hotel staff who made her a Birthday cake and all of the waiters came out banging drums and singing...Outstanding!!

The staff at the Hotel work tirelessly particularly the waiters and the bar staff,12hr days in exhausting heat and yet never stop smiling and always willing to help and make your holiday that little bit extra special, really looking forward to the next visit to see some of the friends that we have made over the years

There are now 3 coffee bars at the Hotel that serve various coffee/tea/hot chocolate/milk shakes crepes/cakes etc all of which are exceptionally good for an all inclusive hotel, the Au Mocha bar is quite funky and surprisingly quiet and serves freshly cooked crepes to your liking between 3-6 pm.


Thomson group have taken a large quantity of rooms so expect to see a lot more English people at this hotel in the future, the Egyptians like the company of English people as we are a polite nation as are they themselves, not like some of our eastern European counterparts....Sharm itself was quiet and most of the areas that we visited were not as busy as previous years and the locals believe that this is as a result of the troubles that continue in Cairo which is a shame as the Sinai peninsula relies heavily on tourists this is a beautiful destination and there is no need to fear traveling in the area.....

To the rear of the Hotel is Fantasia (which is owned by the same person that owns aqua blu) this provides a good evenings entertainment with some Egyptian history and local culture an Arabian horse show including and an amazing snake show with a live Cobra and an Egyptian buffet banquet all for £24 not including drinks, the best place to get tickets from is the 2 guys that come round the pool or the beach in the mornings Mohamed Saad or Ashraf, you will pay £35 booking this in advance or through some of the other local companies, there are a lot of local shops nearby that sell a multitude of gifts etc...and if you venture a little further there is a McDonalds,KFC,Pizza Hut all within easy walking distance failing that they will all deliver to the hotel gates....if you walk out of the front gates of the hotel and turn left after about 100 yards there is 24/7 supermarket that sell pretty much everything you need....All in all this makes the Aqua Blu an ideal location and can't wait to return again!
