Find you inner child and enjoy the 44 water slides and 9 pools. Will you be brave enough for the Kamikaze hair-raising slide measuring over 42 metres or will it be Flying boat?
International buffet restaurant
This is where you'll find the buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If the big aqua park is too adventurous for little ones then they can still have fun in this mini one.

first time to sharm - excellent, like living inside a water park
this was our first visit to shark and it won't be our last, the aqua blu hotel is excellent for families, the hotel staff are all excellent, can't do enough for you, everything went like clock work. even on the last day when a man in a golf buggy pulled up to help us take out luggage to reception. The water rides are great, always a sun lounger or large bed to get some sun or shade. Dont expect bacon and eggs for breakfast, you are in Egypt so you have to be prepared to eat some thing different, however there is always something to eat, pasts, pizza, chips, chicken all in all an excellent hotel and a great hotel for familiesMore
Great water park
This was a family holiday, mainly for the fun and the sun during February half term. The water park aspect of it was fantastic, with slides for everyone, for young children and daring adults. However, be wary of children going on the 'death slide' slides on their own. My daughter fell off the inflatable ring and grazed herself. I think she just wasn't heavy and strong enough to hold onto the ring when it hit the water at the bottom of the curve. There are double rings to allow children to ride with an adult, which I would recommend, and it shares the fun as well. One of my main hates about resort holidays is usually the battle for a sunbed. Thankfully there was always plenty to go around, and very little reserving of beds because of this while I was there. This was a big plus. There were lots of pools, with quieter ones if required. Most were unheated, but given the temperatures, this wasn't a problem for us. Even in February the temperature was late 20s and early 30s. A highlight of the holiday for me was the snorkeling, which we did from the beach at the sister hotel. Although the sea is warm by English standards, we still wore shortie wetsuits to allow us to snorkel for longer and provide a bit of protection against jellyfish. We saw a few live jellyfish (many you will see are dead when they drift into shore) but these weren't a problem. The rooms were fairly basic, but seemed clean, and we tended not to spend much time there anyway. Our family room was facing over the entertainment stage when we first arrived. The entertainment finishes at 10:30, but it can be a bit booming in the room if you wanted to escape it, or had to get very young children to sleep. We easily secured a move through a rep by the third night to a quieter area. The service in the hotel wasn't always great. It depended on the individual. Often the staff would send you in circles to other members of staff or ask you to come back later/tomorrow rather than dealing with the issue. We found a few tips here and there with bar staff improved the service. We're vegetarians and did struggle some meal times to feel excited about the food, as it was very meaty. Even the salads often had bits of meat in them, so watch out for this. The main restaurant Cave du Rol was the best, as it tended to offer more choice, and there was always someone making fresh Egyptian bread in the fired oven. I often fell back on this, with houmous, especially for lunch. The selection of desserts was always exciting. If you are expecting to do any work/gaming using the hotel's wifi, reconsider, as this usually wasn't working. However, there is the 'Champions' pub just outside the main entrance offering free wifi if you buy a drink or for a small surcharge with no drink. I used the gym most days, but runners be warned, there is only one treadmill. This usually wasn't a problem, as demand wasn't high, but it could mean being selective about when you visit to avoid busy times (usually just before dinner). I would recommend this hotel, especially for families.More

Very big resort
1 week me andmy boyfriend spent here, both our first time to Egypt and we had a brilliant week, we would go back to this hotel in a flash as wecant believe another hotel could match its wow factor, even though its clearly not a 5 star. However, this is very generous comment considering on many aspects. First night we were followed back to our room and harrassed consistently by a barman who had been serving us in the jazz cafe, it was quite horrendous. The 2nd day we came back to our room after a day by the pool to find the locks on our room had been changed and we couldnt get into our room! We were disappointed to find the early morning breakfast between 1 and 7 didnt really exist..... Wouldve been nice after a night out... Water in park was freezing, i guess this depends on what time of year u go... Hotel was full of russians...unfortunately they are far from the best mannered of people.... Other than that we loved it and had agoid laugh n wouldnt hesitate to go back, good staff and well worth the money More

we went to aqua blu feb 25th for 1 week hotel was excellent , iv never been to a hotel that was so clean the staff were great constantly cleaning and working hard , water park was fantastic and kept my 16 year old daughter and friend entertained as well as myself !!! we had our room cleaned every day with fresh towels including beach towels and bottled water was supplied which was kept in our fridge another perk !! the safe was free for the whole week bonus!! the only down side to our holiday was hearing how the Russians spoke to the staff rude does not even begin to explain it our favourite barman alaa eldin mohamed deserves a medal, throughout there rudeness he remained completely professional. the food was great lots of choice and no upset tummies !! i will say if your a white spirit drinker take your own !!!! vodka was un drinkable as was the the gin i did however find a little supermarket two min walk to the left of the complex that sold a great vodka at 9 pound a litre !! i celebrated my 39th birthday whilst there and was surprised by a knock on my door with a birthday cake and letter from the management wishing me happy birthday staff even sang to me i was completely overwhelmed by there kindness im looking forward to returning to aqua blu next year or maybe this year armed with my duty free spirits :-)More

This was my fourth time visiting aqua blu, and once again the animation team make the holiday, if it wasn't for them the hotel wouldn't be as good, they are so happy and welcoming, criz and heidi in the kids club were amazing with the kids, they were so friendly and you could see the kids were having a blast! all the animation team (neno,brooke,seif,zazou and chicko) were happy to chat with you and to get you up doing activities, I cannot give them high enough praises, they really deserve to be given credit for the hard work they do!More
