We stayed for 2 weeks at Aqua Blu, we were put in a spacious room with lovely furniture which over looked a pool behind one of the childrens pools. The room was lovely until the Russians arrived for their holiday and kept us awake everynight until 4am by screeching outside and fighting.
The food was okay, not that much variation though! We spent most of our time at the pizza place which was quiet most of the time and had a good selection of food. The desserts are awful at Aqua Blu though!
We also took a hotel taxi to the old market and they dropped us off, right next to an Egyptian man that was trying to drag us upstairs to his shop. I can only think it was on purpose as he drove off with a smile on his face. We didn't enjoy the market so left after an hour in a public taxi to only find the next day the taxi man searching for us for his money for the return trip that we didn't even take!
We did do a trip to Cairo which was probably the best part of the holiday as we had a lovely tour lady.
If we came back to Egypt we wouldn't stay here again.More

Great for kids
stayed for 10 days and found it a very clean environment to be in, pools were always clean and the staff were always helpful, the food was a bit hit and miss but the Italian restaurant was always the most reliable place to eat, kids had pizzas every night.
The waterpark was the extra value option to this holiday which made entertaining the kids during the day easier.
Overall it was a nice place to stay.More

Awful stay at Aqua blu Sharm
I was offered an awful room with old furniture, strange design !!! , when I claimed to the reception they gave me a slight better room in design....but same old furniture....nothing like their photos. The lighting of the room was very bad , even the bathroom light was minimal ....and even no mirror for shaving!!
A big problem from the first day when I entered the aqua park and saw lot of people.....dressed in underwears no swimsuit!!!...with no deciplines from the guards , I contacted the security manager who told me: if I see someone ....I should contact the guard.., ...i approached the reception couple of times asking about the hotel GM who was in a break!!, i met the front office manager who said he will also look into the issue ...but nothing changed.
The guards were mostly rude , and unprofessional , not friendly with children,. ...
The entrance of the aqua park stairs was very dark , ...not well maintained.
The food was repetitive and of bad quality...
No shuttle bus to the airport...although so far from the airport ,....and the Limo service in the hotel charges double a normal taxi.....which is same quality anyway.
No Free wi fi in the hotel....only in one designated place., any where else it's charged at an expensive inappropriate rate!!
I will never come back or recommend this hotel.More
