Arrived at the hotel just before dinner & rooms were fine. We had a bed missing and as my husband walked out the room to go to reception our cleaner was there making sure everything was ok. Told him about the missing bed & wthin a few minutes another bed arrived nd was made up.
Great pools and slides for the kids, never had a problem finding a sun bed even though we were staying throught the Easter holidays.
Beware of the hotel spa guys that walk around the pool & resort all day,they ask all the time if you want a massage. Myself & 2 friends did book for a Turkish massage together and was told this was for 1hr & 15mins and included special oils to make our tan last longer, however we only got a total of 45mins by the time we reached the changing room & we had not had any "oils" rubbed on for better tanning. When mentions they quickly rubbed this on standing in the changing room & it was not even what we were shown!! When I expressed our dissatisfaction the sales guy said ok he would come find us the next day to arrange another 10 mins, still not our full amount of time as promised. Our Husbands also went to the spa to follow this through & the manager more or less said we were lying!. Also spoke to our rep about this and he said he would speak to the spa,but never did. On speaking to several other people around the pool they had had similar experiences.
The food was good, but repetitive and the main restaurant was always so busy and noisy, use the similar ones.
The kids loved mini club,but they don't have any idea what the children are upto or where they are. On one occasion one of the 4yrs in our party disappeared to the toilet block.
We did lots of trips with a company that are English based out there called Sinai safari adventures who I found from reading reviews on here. Tim & Janet could not do enough for you & the prices where so reasonable. As a group of 11 we did snorkelling, star gazing , camel riding & a few more . I have listed a separate review on here under them as they were so good.
All in all a great holiday & would go back It was great for us as a family & we had kids from 4yrs-7yrs who just loved everything about Aqua blu.
