Ranked #44 of 233 Hotels in Sharm El Sheikh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 6, 2014

We visited the Aqua Blu resort from the 19th of April - the 3rd May 2014. The hotel staff are fabulous our room was clean and welcoming and had air conditioning a fridge, shower (wasnt great), balcony with two chairs and plenty of storage.

The hotel has a number of fabulous facilities the main one being the water park - there are a at least three child friendly areas with slides especially designed for smaller children (I have 5 year old twins) accompnaied by at lease three free form pools which are perfect for kids who maybe want to play with water toys and take a break from the slides for a day. Our rool was situation right next to an area with three pools two of which were shallow for children to play in and the third a deeper pool designed for swimming and adult use.

All of the pools are surrounded either with sunbeds and grass canopies for shade or pergolas which are tneted and made of white wood and have a comfortable matress on the top. pool towels are supplied and changed from your room each evening.

The hotel has a number of restaurants, we frequented three of the the wide choice available:

Cave de Roi (The main restaurant)
La A'siatique
Club Med

The food at the Asian choice was beautiful, fresh Naan bread, chicken, liver, squid, beef curries and also cooked on skewers in a tandoori oven. There was always a large selection of fresh salads and all the chefs were happy to help and explain what everything was.

Club Med was the snack bar with burgers, tacos, chips, chicken nuggets, salad etc all availble between breakfast and lunch

The main restaurant had a wide range of options including freshly made pizza.

The bars included a coffee bar with delicious coffees and teas including americano, lattes etc. Ther is an open air bar and sports bar along with drink stations dotted around the area, ice cream is available near all of the kids play areas.

A number of staff stand out as exceptional from our stay - The two guys at the coffee bar, Hornay the whistling singing bar tender, Malek the fully qualified physio who sells massages (Not rude, leery or horrible in any way) Mr Sayeed the manager who dealt with anything we asked of him.

The animation ro entertainment team are fab and there is a kids club and kids cinema every night after dinner followed by a kids disco led by the team followed by nightly entertainment such as belly dancing, the spinning man, magic show and even bingo. All good fun and worth a relaxing night in.

A visit to the local area Mercato is well worth it and should you need anything from the pharmacy this is the place to go - there is a goverment run pharmacy were treatments are very affordable and a doctor is on duty, its open 24 hrs and is really fantastic as one of our party took a reaction to insect bites and it was dealt with immeaditley.

This place is well worth a visit the water slides are great fun, the cleaning is amazing the staff are freindly and happy and our rep from ETS was great. we went on a number of trips and mohammed from fantasia is wonderful and the guys from Thistlegorm will always offer you a great deal.

This resort ticks every box.. except one..

Very Clean and wonderful service.
Hundreds of free beds, no towels on beds yippeeeeee...
Great room service. Fresh water everyday in fridge, fresh beach towels and extra pillows l
Great slides and daytime entertainment. Don't take any notice of timetable!
Wonderful area down on beach.
Good food. Not 5* but plenty for all and you are in Egypt.
Fantastic resort...There is only one main issue. We are not big drinkers but most of us like our wine and good quality drinks. Sadly the consensus is wine undrinkable and drinks too limited. Soft drinks like syrup. We don't expect branded on all inclusive but give us the option to buy wine and branded drinks. The show them on the bar but cant buy? Wine is expensive in Egypt but Aqua Blu is missing an opportunity here. We would gladly pay extra. Have a separate menu?

Note : We had to buy some locally and go back to the room or go in a taxi into town... what a shame!!

From checking in we were treated so well, the Reception Staff are exceptional, Sam particularly is so very welcoming and helpful. Everywhere you go the staff always have a friendly greeting. The cleanliness is amazing considering the climate and environment there is very rarely anything that is dusty, let alone dirty. We are coffee lovers and you won't get any better than the fabulous coffee bar manned by the hardest working young men they are so attentive and caring. We ate mainly in the Mediterranean Restaurant where we met several of the chefs who cook and prepare some of the tastiest dishes, if you like curries or spicy food then you have to taste Yogash's fabulous dishes. I would love to name everyone of the staff who made this holiday so memorable but that would take up several pages. A big THANK YOU Aqua Blu - another wonderful holiday

Room Tip: Bungalows are great

We stayed at this hotel and I have to say we had a great time and we were a family of four (2 adults and 2 children aged 8 and 11). I always read trip advisor when booking hotels and I would write an honest review of our stay.

People = staff are really hard working and very friendly. For those who provided a great service we always tipped and as a result I always received my beer in a big glass.

Pools = great layout and kids pools are great and load of spare beds. There are enough life guards who are strict in terms of safety which is great.

Entertainment = the kids entertainment is pretty standard and they seem to enjoy it. However the adults are not really catered for. However if you are football fan then you will be in heaven as football from all over the world is shown especially all English games.

Rooms/Housekeeping = rooms are really clean however they are basic. We did have an ongoing problem with regards to obtaining enough clean towels which was annoying.

Food = The standard was generally poor. We found that lunch was usually yesterdays dinner (this was certainly that case in the indian restaurant). The indian restaurant was very poor. I am an expert in indian food (being indian myself) and to say it was indian cuisine was an insult. Again the staff worked hard except when it came to clearing tables. Breakfast was probably the best meal of the day, however if you fancy chips for lunch and dinner then you will enjoy the food (this was the kids after 3 days). Even though AI we found ourselves going to nappa bay so that the kids could enjoy a decent meal (KFC, TJI , real indian and MD).

If you are not too fussed about the food then you will like this resort. The Staff work hard and at the same time are really friendly. Everyone except the reception stafff who have no concept of customer service. I would suggest they are not fit to clean the hotel rooms and there manager should be sacked!

This hotel is the cleanest hotel I've been to abroad, the staff are always cleaning day and night, the food is lovely, be open minded and try new things! The staff are always friendly and polite and happy to help at any time, always smiling and they are happy to get you anything you need you have no need to ask because it's there for you. The animation team are brilliant, they always get you involved in everything they do, they are all so lovely, the gondola men are also lovely, even when they aren't working they wave and smile and are happy to stop and talk, the trip men are also brilliant they have brilliant offers on there trips and make sure you are looked after :).me and my family stayed for 2weeks and only got back last night, it's that amazingly brilliant there I didn't want to leave :( I will miss the place and the staff! I will be coming back for Christmas :D I strongly recommend this place, it's brilliant for families and couples :). Love to all of the staff at this hotel, from Natasha Baker and family :)
