Aqua Blu Sharm Hotel  


This hotel is part of Aqua Park City, which sits on a clifftop in the Ras Om El Seid area of Sharm El Sheikh. As a guest here, you get full access to Sharm’s biggest aqua park – it has a total of 62 slides, including high-speed twisters and free-fall ones. You’ll also find no fewer than 14 pools, including one with a wave machine and a Nemo pool for children.

The hotel itself look a bit like a castle, with Medieval-style turrets and onion-shaped domes on the roof. It’s home to 5 restaurants, including buffet options and à la carte choices with Asian, Mediterranean and Italian menus. You’ll also find places to eat on the hotel’s promenade, which is packed with cafés and shops.

Lastly, bedrooms are spacious and come with tiled floors and huge ornate headboards. Plus, they all have satellite TVs, air-conditioning, and that all-important balcony or terrace.

Great Family Hotel

I'm a Sharm regular and have stayed at Hilton Sharm Dreams, Hilton Shark's Bay, Delta Sharm, Sol Melia, Tirana Aqua Park and others over the past 10 years. My kids are 14 and 11 now and enjoy the water parks, so we chose Aqua Blu this year. I'll keep this review brief. The hotel is clean and attractive, a good size (not too big), and, although it was fully booked, it never appeared crowded. I'd recommend a room in the main circle. The entertainment there stops fairly early, so it's pretty good for families with small children who want to get them off to sleep, especially a room on the outer side of the circle rather than the inner. We had no problems finding sunloungers. The slides are great for older kids and adults. There are two large pools with smaller slides and things to keep younger children entertained, as well as several quiet pools near the restaurants for adults who want to do a few lengths. My two helped out at the Kids Club, run by Geordie Donna. All of the kids seemed keen to get there for 10:00am every day, which is also when all the slides start up. There's no shortage of different bars and restaurants and you can get food from any of the restaurants (Italian, Asian, Mediterranean and barbeque outside) and eat anywhere you like (you're not restricted to going to the Italian one night etc., so the whole family can choose what they like and all eat together). There are soft, fizzy drink machines (Coke, Diet Coke, Fanta, Sprite) where you can fill up yourself and a bar for beer/wine. The quality of the food is very good and even the most picky person would find it difficult not to like something. The staff are all happy, friendly and attentive. We spent a lot of time at the little La Cannelle bar and I must say that Ahmed was a great barman, helping us find chairs during busy times and even moving a table and chairs outside from the bar a couple of times for us. Make sure you tip all these poorly paid, hard workers at the beginning of the week and it will guarantee you good service. Same goes for the room guy, who kept us supplied with fresh towels and lots of water bottles for the fridge. Thanks also to Sayed Helal the Front Office manager who will assist if you have any problems with your room and need to change for any reason. Thanks everyone for a great holiday and hopefully we'll be back in the future.More

Amazing holiday!

We stayed at Aqua Blu for 10 nights during Easter holidays. We were a group of 8 adults and 3 children staying in 4 rooms. We were very skeptical about staying at this hotel as we are used to staying in 5 star hotels however we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is lovely, staff are more or less friendly. Check in took about 10 mins after which we were given keys and shown the direction to our rooms. The grounds are huge and very well kept. Rooms are not high standard, very basic, however it does look like they are doing refits. The bathroom was a disappointment, but this was expected as 5* in Sharm is not the same as 5* in Dubai. We were given fresh towels everyday as I used to leave the old ones on the floor. We didn't drink the water however were still given new bottles everyday. We ended up with about 15 bottles of water by the end of our stay. We spent most of our days in the pools or restaurants or out of the hotel so the room was mainly for sleeping. During the park hours it's best to use your own room toilets as the public ones are not really clean due to all the wet swimmers using them. Food was not too bad, however after day 4 it was a bit boring. But there is a shopping complex a 5 minute walk away from the back gate with Mcdonalds, Hardee's, Pizza Hut and KFC. We used to walk there often for either a meal or to do shisha at one of the cafés. We never tried shisha at the hotel as they only had one flavour available, a bit disappointing! The food at Club Mac was good, repetitive, but good! We didn't eat much dinner at the hotel as we spent a lot of our evenings out mainly in Naama Bay which we travelled to by taxi for super cheap as we were good at haggling. Breakfast at the Mediterranean Restaurant was good, we enjoyed the fresh croissants and pancakes. Cave du roi was too busy so went only went there once. There's no wifi in the hotel, apart from paid wifi in reception which is shockingly expensive. The Moka cafe has free wifi after 6 but as it's a busy network it's very slow. We ended up buying a Vodafone dongle from naama bay to use to catch up with work and set up our own little wifi network so we could all use the internet on our devices. The kids (and adults) thoroughly enjoyed the 'Splashy pool' near the main building, water was freezing plus the windy weather didn't help, but we all still had fun. The slides are amazing, we went on all of them almost everyday! The double dip one stopped directly outside one of the rooms we had. There's lifeguards at almost all the pools. The beach at the sister hotel is nothing special, not much sand for kids to play with. We spent a couple of hours there one day but did not bother going back, the views however are gorgeous. It's only a 5 minute walk away or a 10 minute free shuttle bus away, as going there the bus has to go the long way round. We had a Spa treatment, my husband and I had the Adam and Eve program for a very good undisclosable price. The massage was really very good! Spa guys do harass you, but if you say no they will leave. We also booked an excursion through a third party to Ras Mohamed, the best thing we could have ever done! The beach near the Earthquake site is the best beach we have EVER seen in our lives! Powdery golden sand (with no creepy crawlies) and turquoise clear water, definitely a must. The snorkelling at the pebble beach was amazing too, we had divers swimming below us as well as colourful fishes. Having been to Sharm previously staying the The Hyatt Regency we were very nervous about this hotel. As even the Hyatt was not upto the perfect 5* touch. But if you have kids, as we do now this is the perfect hotel. We had an amazing family holiday and would not change anything except stay longer. Don't hesitate as you will have fun!More

Great time at Aqua Blu

{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252 {\fonttbl\f0\fnil\fcharset0 ArialMT;} {\colortbl;\red255\green255\blue255;\red44\green44\blue44;\red255\green255\blue255;} \deftab720 \pard\pardeftab720\partightenfactor0 \f0\fs28 \cf2 \cb3 \expnd0\expndtw0\kerning0 \outl0\strokewidth0 \strokec2 First time at Aqua Blu and Egypt. Hotel is great for the price and what makes this place is the service. The animation team are great at getting you going, the waterpark is good fun, but to top it the beach is superb. With a free shuttle can walk it in about 10 mins and there is a bar for aqua blu guests with free drinks and food. Snorkelling is great with a little coral at waist depth just off the corner of the jetty...clown fish live here and it's just like a scene out if "finding nemo". The only slight negative is the Spa people trying to sell you massages everyday. There were quite a few Mosquitos but wearing jungle juice fended them off. The hotel room was basic but ok..fresh bottled water everyday and a fridge...ours had a bad smell so we didn't use it. On the site there are shops selling imitation products .... If you go for a watch make sure it has an ETA movement. The shops outside the hotel are much cheaper though. The food is ok and there is plenty, the waiters like to clear your plate quickly and are always eager to get you drinks..especially if you tip them on the first day. There are plenty of cash machines in the hotel that will accept sterling notes and exchange for Egyptian pounds however the Egypt Tourist guys will give you a better rate of approximately 11.75 to \'a31. Met some lovely people here and would recommend the hotel. It's not the four seasons but for the cost it is exceptionally good value}More
