This place is definitely for aqua park lovers. Also utilities for kids are impressive making Aqua Blu good place for family vacation. Should such be important for you and you can
by-pass some minor deficiencies - go there and enjoy.
We were there on the 3 generation vacation end of May. Me and wife had standard room and daughter with husband and 14 months + 3,5 years kids had family room. Both rooms found adequate spacious but appeared to be the weakest link. Rooms even do not insist to give you slightest touch of luxury. Effects of initial poor standards finishing jobs after few years of intense use become now even more noticeable. Conditions of furniture, mattresses, bathroom, minimum of equipment (lack of tea pot for example) and general reception simply can not impress at all. Air Con were terrible nosily and setting reasonable temperature impossible. Set it on - nosily and very cold, turn down - hot. Frequent lack of warm water did evening kids bathing problematic.
We ordered room with king size bed. Instead they connected two standard beds in one putting sleeping comfort below last limits. We were offered room with king size bed but far away from children - something we could not accept.
For other hand we could not complain about cleanse and mates service. It was more then OK.
With all-in you can normally choose from 5 restaurants. It could be recorded as nice outstanding compare to other all-in resorts. But during our stay 2 were of service for refurbishing. Each one insists to have it distinguish character but after all we found food similar. It is not enough to put pizza and pasta into menu to name restaurant an Italian one. Those 3 we can use offer buffets. While selection and availability was grate taste was just average. Every day menu slightly change but it was hard to notice much difference. What ever -everyone could found something and if you want you can eat almost round the clock. We found kid's corner useless. Every day it was offering same food. Also lack of local food or subject evenings. Aqua Blu can impress whit numbers of bars and places where you can take drink and spent time. Beer and vines -OK but strong alcohols offered in all-in - disgusting. I was 6 times in Egypt and so far have never encountered such poor quality.
Very good Italian style coffee is also available in some places. And something important for kids - ice cream, at least 3 kinds from ten until end of the day.
Aqua Park is great. Swimming pools - great. Sun beds - adequate numbers.
There are two sets of shallow pools for kids each equipped with numbers of kid's size slides, water tubs, toys ect. - absolutely water paradise for children. What in my opinion was missing - some shadowed area where kids can play out of the direct sun shine.
Evening animations for children we found also very good. Well, all was same every day but kids enjoy.
Beach - did not impress us at all. We spent there just 2 hrs and returned for pools.
Aqua Park and main pools area are very nosily. Loud music, crowd, day and evening animations. Avoid rooms in central building specially those facing aqua park towers.
Some gests conducted quite rude. In case of loudly alcohol balcony party during night time call reception. Hotel security was quite effective in such situation. I also need to underline perfect work of life guards. In general hotel stuff was great. Tips - welcomed but none was asking for baksheesh. Service at Ice Cream pool bar - absolutely fantastic.
