Nice kids pools, a bit dated.

The Aqua Blu is a bit further from the airport than most of the resorts in Sharm El Sheik. The water park is large, but most of the slides and rides are for kids 120cm tall and 10+ years old. Our kids did enjoy the two kid zones and some other pools.
The rides at the resort have had a lot of use and are not in the best of shape anymore. Rooms are very basic and quite used as can be seen by the gaps around the doors. AC worked well and the rooms were clean.
All inclusive included meals and drinks. The food was buffet and very repetitive and was pretty low quality food in general. Drinks were local alcohol varieties, but suggest to avoid the wine, and the beer was safest.
The resort appeared to have a lot of large tour groups from Eastern European countries.
We were constantly pressed for purchasing spa treatments or add-on trips while sitting around the pools. We did try massages and they were quite refreshing. Pedicure was not worth the time or money. The glass bottom boat trip to the reef was not really worth the time.
There was an onsite clinic, which seems useful for this type of a resort.
The kids had fun, but we probably won't go back.
