Advantages Great pools and waterpark. Fun for all the family!
Disadvantages Loud tunes blasting out in the waterpark, repetitive food and no entertainment in the evenings
I have wanted to visit Egypt since I read Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie when I was about 12. However, when I finally went to Egypt last March it wasn’t to live out my dream of a Nile cruise and visiting the pyramids, it was for an all inclusive week long holiday at Sharm El Sheikh. We knew we wanted a relaxing holiday around my birthday and that we wanted to go somewhere hot without spending over the odds so Egypt became the top choice quite quickly.
Our bags were taken up to our rooms and we followed on a golf cart which was fun! Aqua Blu Sharm is a huge complex and in the blistering heat in warm clothes walking would not have been the best thing after a flight and transfer! We were shown to our room which we thought was wonderful. Plenty of space, huge bed, table and chairs and a sofa. The small window didn’t allow in a huge amount of light but this didn’t matter as we wouldn’t be in there in the daytime. The bathroom wasn’t particularly modern but was clean enough and even though the room’s ‘garden view’ turned out to be a view of the main road, overall we thought we had a great deal. Then came the night. We went to bed quite early that evening but found we couldn’t get to sleep because of the people and motorbikes on the main road. Traffic seemed to be endless throughout the night and with horns blaring literally every three seconds we didn’t get a minute’s sleep. At 6.00am the sun had come up and we took our towels and went to lie out by the pool to grab an hour’s sleep before the other guests started to come out. Anyway, around 7.00am we went to reception and pretty much demanded another room. They said they were full up and that there were no other rooms and would have to come back at 1.00pm after checkout in case anything turned up.
