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)
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.
