“Can't wait to go back ;-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

We have just returned from a 2 week all inclusive stay at Aqua Blue (Aqua Park) during the Easter Holidays. The check in process was straightforward. We were two single parents with 1 & 2 children aged 5, 8 & 11, we had booked two rooms but we were given the option of a family room which was like a 1 bedroom apartment. We ended up taking two rooms in the garden, I saw a cockroach and decided 1 wanted a first floor room, so you can see how awkward I am! The hotel accommodated us in the main building with great views of the pool and gardens.
This is a two story resort with 3 main restaurants and several bars, Its very spacious with simple gardens and a good range of pools and slides for children of all ages. There are loads of sun loungers that are really comfortable and some are like four poster beds.
We mainly hung out in the "beach area" where the animation team were based. We liked to join in with the aqua aerobics and the kids did the kids club in the afternoon which was generally colouring in, with gondola trips when the staff could be bothered, but it kept them out of the son, and my son kept asking to go. There was a good mix of nationalities, the majority of which were British, but there were large numbers of Russians, some French and German. Activities were 10 am to 5 pm and there was an evening show. Kids club was 10 - 12:30 and 15:00 - 1700 with a kids film (tom & jerry etc) at 7 and a mini disco after.
The slides are awesome although we did pick up a few scrapes and grazes, but there is a medical centre on sight and the lifeguards will patch you up. If you want to stay out of the action there are plenty of quiet areas. We are big on joining in so did the activities including the glass bottom boat, banana boat and dolphin show. Wed also did the evening trip to Fantasia.
We used the Spa and the beauty salon and enjoyed the Jacuzzi, Sauna, Cleopatra massage, mud bath and Turkish bath.
The bars in the hotel served local alcohol which I found very weak, The beer was nice. The juice was not fruit juice but cordial, but it was fine and there was post mix coco cola, Fanta & sprite. There was a selection of teas and Nescafé coffee and there were a couple of espresso bars
The hotel is really clean, the staff work very long hours and are accustomed to tips. The lifeguards are adorable and the waiters are lovely, in fact all the staff are great. The manager was always around and the rep was helpful.

All in all a great time was had by all.

Room Tip: There are bungalows that have a living area and huge bathrooms. Rooms in the main building near rec...

We stayed for seven days over Easter. Excellent facilities for all ages with plenty of activities to keep the kids occupied. The all inclusive package is fantastic with plenty of choice of good food at the various restaurants. The chef in the Indian restaurant named yogesh is excellent cooking authentic Indian cuisine. Just the slight negative feedback on the rooms. We had the family room with bunkbeds for kids. They are cramped and dated with small shower cubicles however there is plenty to do around the hotel so you won't be spending much time in the room and the water park will tire you out for a good nights sleep.

We have just returned from a week to the Aqua Blu (5th-12th April) and it was definitely the best hotel we have stayed in in Egypt so far.

The kids loved the water slides and I must admit, although I am not a fan of them, the ones I experienced were brilliant. If you have children who love the water then this is the hotel for you.

There is enough beds around the complex so you don't need to rush out in the morning to put your towels down.

There are plenty of restaurants on site, the Italian being my boys favourite - one loved the pizza and the other the pasta.

We stayed in a room overlooking the veranda and slides and it was big enough for us with a double bed and two singles. The cleaner was excellent and was always waiting for us in the evening to exchange our pool towels.

We would look to book this hotel again.
