We travelled as a family with 2 children aged 6 + 11 and this holiday was our favourite yet. I would like to start off by saying I have never experienced such polite, helpful and wonderful service by such a large team of staff in any of my previous holidays. The staff here are a true credit to this hotel and throughout our 9 day stay the staff from reception, waiters, life guards, entertainers etc. continually went out of their way to provide the best service possible, making our children laugh and keeping us happy at all times. Many thanks to all of them for making our holiday so special.
We spent most days around the various pools and trying out the many slides - great fun and plenty of humour with the life guards :) Took a trip to Tiran Island to do some snorkelling which was also very good -be prepared for a long day though. If you have young children would probably recommend the glass bottom boat trip more. Barter for a good deal on these excursions alot of the time you can get for less than half the price they originally offer. If you are going to have the turkish bath in the hotel spa I would recommend you do this in the 1st couple of days of your holiday as it prepares your skin for a tan and also having your sunburn scrubbed is not a pleasant experience as I found out. They also promised to give me some oil which I never recieved and a free face mask which they tried to get out of, still once id had it done my skin did feel nicer i suppose but dont go expecting anything luxurious.
We didnt encounter any problems with the food, there was plenty of choice. Kids loved being able to have freshly made pancakes every morning and I loved the barbeques outside Cave du Roi. Pizzas in the Italian also very good.
We stayed in room 6220 which had an excellent view over the waterpark however after wandering round I struggled to see where you could get a room with a bad view.
Naama bay is great fun in the evening, not at all like Blackpool seafront as some have said. Its only about £8 return in a taxi and we had a fab time there, not at all like I expected and we felt very safe even with 2 young children in tow. Worth a wander out the front and back doors of the hotel too, full of surprises :) but take your wits with you. I also recommend going to the introductory meeting that will be offered. This isnt the usual trying to flog every excursion going meeting. They actually have some kind words of advice. The meeting was kept brief (about 30mins if that) and we found it very informative. Afterwards you can speak to one of the guys about trips/excursions but this is entirely optional.
We never go on holiday the same place twice but are seriously considering rebooking for next year just wish we were back there now. Enjoy

Stayed here for a week and could of easily of stayed another week.The hotel is one of the biggest i have stayed in and even though i ate quite a lot here i still managed to lose 4 pounds from all the walking around the grounds :) Anyway,first impression of Egypt was 'didn't like it' however that all changed by the time i got to the hotel.The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times,and made us feel straight at home.The rooms were basic but comfortable,at the end of the day you are on holiday so the room doesn't need to be like a posh pad in Mayfair.There are a handful of restaurants to chose from,you have the main buffet,Italian,Mediterranean and the Indian/Chinese all of which served great food and drink (don't know why people felt the need in other reviews to put them down,probably just fussy)The hotel water park was amazing and so much fun there is 20 plus slides for the older kids/adults and the 2 seperate pools/slides for the younger children.The hotel has a beach located at the sister hotel which is a 10 min walk or if your lazy you can get the shuttle for free every half an hour,We booked a quad bike trip into the desert at sunset which i highly recommend.
Over all if you are thinking of going as a family or a couple to this hotel then it is a must and if anyone has any questions i'll be happy to answer them.

Visited the aqua blu early march with my girlfriend and 3 friends, had an awesome holiday! The water complex is by far the biggest I’ve ever been to, the chutes were brill! The park was constantly kept spotless, couldn’t have a smoke without someone coming over and emptying your ashtray! The bar service was great, we spent most of our drinking time at the “leopard print” bar, shout out to Mohammed and Waleed (sorry if ive spelt any names wrong), we didn’t need to leave our seats as the table service was second to none! The Food in the complex was also spot on, with different restaurants including itallian, Chinese, indian, mediteranean, we were never bored or stuck for choice! The rooms were also top class, very spacious, and Mohammed the room cleaner and his team did a great job keeping them clean, and also on occasion giving us fancy towel decorations on our beds! Think its important to tip at the bar and the room service as they seem to appreciate it a lot, the service we got seemed VIP compared to others around us… probably Russians that didn’t tip. Also a lot of people on here moaning as the Russians are rude, I reckon they’re only rude if you let them be, we had no problems with them… if they try to jump in the queue, then just don’t let them. To be fair it was quite quiet in the specialist restaurants so maybe they get more aggressive at peak times? Haha. Did a great Scuba diving trip thanks to Mustafa who has a wee hut in the complex for organising that! Final shout out to the animation team, Stacy, Chiko, Louise, Lido, there were another couple I cant remember but they were sound too! Thanks for the banter guys, they do a great job, haven’t stopped listening to that damn ‘Bomba’ song since we got home! Gave us great advice about trips, and took us out a couple nights to naama for hardrock café/pacha with the cheap armbands etc…
Would definitely be going to this hotel again if we came back to Egypt, doubt anything else could compare!!
All the best, Steve, Charlotte, Dale, Mel & Kate :P

We enjoyed a fantastic week here and would reconmmend to anyone with a family. In total there were 4 adults and 4 children in our group with the other couple we went with having been twice before.
Good taxi service by hotel and will sort things out for you on aany trips etc...
Also the beach is about 7 mins walk from hotel which has its own bar so you still can get drinks and snacks by using your wrist band.

few points -

Hotel and grounds -
Very clean and always maintained all day, no rubbish seen anywhere.
Pools very clean and slides very good .

Room -
Our rooms were very basic but shower room real big. balcony real good for drying your wet clothes and had a good view.

Food -
Dont know why some people give bad reviews on the food being cold etc... as we found the food excellent - hot - good choice - friendly staff = all good.
Even my little boy aged 4 struggled with the heat to eat and the staff helped out by giving him his favorite food ( a big bowl of strawberrys ) which made him very happy :)

Drink -
We only had beer and pop / juice for the kids which was on tap all day, also bottled water you can pick up from any bar.
Also bottled water is allways topped up in your hotel fridge.
Coffee bar also on complex which is like an outside costa which does cakes etc aswell which we used to chill out after a long day in the sun.

Entertainment -
Daytime there is lots to do , pools - slides -wave pool - crazy river - games all great.
Altough they have a few nights entertainment i dont think there is enough to do at night apart from chill out and have a drink. I think they need to put music on or entertainment on each night to keep familys entertained.

One thing that bugged us are some of the russians who visit as some are very rude and have no manners . Pushing in , no thanks or nothing ;(
Overall the hotel and staff are brill and we will defo visit next year.

We decided to stay here after a recomendation from a friend and we were so glad we took their advice! From the moment we got there all staff treated us so well and all were friendly and happy and seemed to love their work there.
The whole resort is spotless, very clean and tidy and staff are constantly keeping the appearance of the resort gorgeous at all times.
We have 2 children one 13 and one 4 and both were so happy and content with all of the activities and water slides.
All food we enjoyed there and we tried lots of new things that we thoroughly enjoyed.
We canty say anything bad about our stay here and we all loved the whole of our stay!!!

We would most definately return and would recomend to anyone who wants a family holiday with the option to go crazy on the slides or just to have a nice relaxing time x
