We visited here as a group of three friends on 12th June for 7 days and I can honestly say this hotel is by far the best out of all the other hotels I have visited with water parks such as Aqua Blu in Sharm (same hotel group which was also very good but this was better ), Aqua Fantasy in Turkey and Titanic beach and Spa in Hurghada.
The reasons why it was better then the others :
Awesome water slides with plenty of variety and friendly life guards that put a smile on your face by being humorous and cheerful. Plenty of pools for kids and adults.
Great food and lots of choice from the 4 different buffet restaurants. Ice creams and Milkshakes drinks etc. We particularly enjoyed the Indian restaurant. Awesome curries and Biryani.
Rooms - We had a double room with a king size and double bed. The right size for us.We stayed in 3203 which was near the animation stage. Would not recommend this for families with kids as music will be on loud until 11pm and you can hear it in the room. Better to get a room facing the back of the hotel and away from the centre stage. Room keeping staff were excellent keeping the room clean and providing fresh towels daily.
We were impressed with the range of facilities and entertainment made available daily by the animation team.This included Table Tennis, Mini golf, Tennis, French bowls, Shooting practice with pellet gun, Darts, Water polo, Football, Crazy golf. Even Pool (Billiards) which has always been charged in previous fully inclusive hotels I have stayed in. We are more active travellers so for us this was ideal as we did not get bored for a minute.
Shuttle bus to Marrakesh town. You need to book this through reception or guest relations but we never had any problem getting a place. The coach travels to Marrakesh town three times a day and there is also three return trips. The town is only half an hour away from the Hotel.
Evening entrainment. The animation team were awesome and always working hard to make sure we had a good time. We particularly enjoyed the Dance show. Missed the fire show but from the videos I saw this would have been awesome.
Thank you to all the staff for making it a pleasant and fun stay. I want to say a special thanks to Nora in Guest relations as she was an excellent point of contact if anything went wrong. Our Air con was not working the first night and as soon as I mentioned it to Nora the next day it was fixed very quickly.
I will definitely be retuning next April with the kids and the wife as we really enjoyed our family holiday in Aqua Blu Sharm this year and this hotel was even better with more facilities and shorter flights only 3 hours 15 minutes instead of 5 hours 40 to Egypt so I am sure they will enjoy it.
