I read almost all reviews for most hotels on tripadvisor, and decided to go with sea club aqua park mainly for the slides/aqua park ... GREAT decision.
The hotel location close to the airport is excellent as I was not interested in the noisy Naama bay district and more interested in a quiet location ( 5 minute drive to the airport ). This meant lot of airplanes flying over the hotel which was really fun to watch ( no noise inside the rooms at all ).
The check-in process took some time, but the blame is for our large group not the hotel ..staff very helpful.
Our room was one of the best hotel rooms I've ever had ( including USA/ Europe/ Middle East ..etc ) . VERY spacious with king size bed and TWO folding beds for our 2 kids at no extra charge. With three beds inside, there was still lot of space left. The mattress/bed comfort level is excellent ( among the best I've ever tried ) .
There were lot of flies in the hotel area when we checked in as there was lot of flowers, grass, but towards the end of our vacation I did not see any flies at all.
The pools are great, but the opening times for the slides were on the shorter side (10 - 4 pm ). The water was refreshingly cool in the hot weather but I can imagine some people feeling it a bit chilly to their liking.
The food was very good with excellent variety, I think I gained couple of pounds at least within few days. One issue was the manner of the Russians ( or lack of, that is ), no respect for queues, very loud, and they race to the fruit buffet as if they never saw water melons or apricots in their lives ! They would also occupy the tables by the bar next to the food court's outdoor tables half an hour before buffet opening... only to race to occupy the outdoor food tables once the buffet opens, and they would stay there forever.
The kids night activities were excellent in the newly opened amphitheater. Rana was great and my daughter loved her and took photos with her ...
The hotel staff in general were very helpful and polite .... no major issues there.
The check out process was a 10 second procedure with a great smile from the receptionist.
In summary ,
would I recommend this hotel ? YES
one thing you would suggest/change ? providing leaflets in the airport to russians regarding the very basic yet UNIVERSALLY accepted manners when you travel, talk, eat, drink, smoke ...etc :)
Thank you sea club aqua park ...
