Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 April 2012

In agreement with many of the previous reviews, the staff are without exception friendly, attentive and helpful, the hotel is maintained to a very high standard and the rooms are quite spacious.The beach area is very pleasant with a small bay where the water is shallow so you are able to walk out for quite a distance - I would recommend the use of "sea shoes".

There are two main restaurants the Topaz (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Late Dinner) the other being the Four Corners (Breakfast and Dinner only). In addition there are four A la carte restaurants, all of which are excellent, La Rocca - Italian, Ginger - Asian, Sennara - Fish, Zaitouna - Lebanese, these can be booked between 10:00 and 12:00 only on the day you wish to attend - queues form early so my tip is to get there ten minutes or so before !0:00. Snacks are available at La Perla pool bar (seek out Matta a very friendly,informative, helpful guy, Paradiso beach bar and the Aquarius bar.

However, for me "the buts". The hotel is far too busy, the hotel has over 1300 rooms catering mainly for Russians and other Europeans, at my time of visit there were around 3000 plus guests. There are 18 pools varying in size and two "aqua parks" which is great for families but for couples it can be hard to find that tranquil corner. I did witness a number of people slipping, not just in the pool areas but also in the restaurants and I noticed a few with bandages etc - tread warily. The Topaz restaurant is cavernous, I likened it to Kings Cross station very loud and very busy, because of this I found it very uncomfortable to eat in there.

The negatives are down to my personal taste and preferences, I prefer a smaller, more intimate hotel, the Aquamarine for me is too noisy, too many people bustling around, and on an evening in the main bar area it was at times difficult to find a seat. However,if you don't mind crowds then for you this may be the perfect hotel.

My friend and I stayed at this Hotel for one week all Inclusive. We couldn't find no faults with absolutely anything. The hotel was spotlessly cleaned including our rooms.

Nice warm welcome , food was varied each day ...a great choice to choose from. An abundance of different types of fruit, salads and breads,pastries, cakes etc at each meal.

The beach is about 2 mins walk from the room, Each sun -bed has it's own parasol The shows at night was brilliant shows, and the dj was even kind enough to make a C.D for my friend.

I have traveled to many places all over the World, staying at many hotels, but have never before experienced such an impeccable service from the staff and management.

Please be aware that the wages for the Egyptian workers is very low indeed,so tipping is gratefully accepted

We stayed 7th March. we upgraded to a pool view room. We enjoyed access to the beach and nice pools. The view from our balcony was excellent. Food was excellent in all the restaurants with the Italian coming out on top.
Staff throughout the hotel were very pleased to provide first class service. The bar areas are all very nice, like other visitors we thought the long bar was too dark and warm.
workers staff on site were good, was informative and helpful. hotel staff was great and give us always the right information and a warm smile also at the beach same like the pools and our cleaning boy room Our kitchen tour was memorable,but the girl who did it was on a hurry olsa
For the rest Management and staff should be proud and we will be back again.

Spent a week at the Hotel aquamarine following a very enjoyable but busy week long Nile cruise. It was a long trip from Luxor but boy was it worth it. We had booked supirior rooms which gave access to the Executive lounge/bar and hug 18 Pools, plus the room itself was fantastic. Also allowed us to have 1 free bag of laundry - very appreciated and beautifully laundered. We could not fault this hotel, spotlessly clean, spacious & plush. The food in all the restaurants was plentiful and very good quality. So much is good about this hotel, it's very quiet and relaxing with absolutely excellent staff who we found, without exception, to be polite and eager to give good service. Have travelled to many places & stayed in numerous hotels, Hotel aquamarine definately one of the very best if not THE BEST we ever had the pleasure to stay in.

we live in Swiss and stay most of year between italy and swiss, most of meditrenian sea and this was our visit to the read sea and hurghada and we loved it and we have just returned from a weeks stay at this wonderful hotel call the iberotel aquamarine. Myself and my daughter wanted a chill out week some where hot(not long haul). We had reservations about going to Egypt but they were all unfounded. The hotel staff were fantastic nothing was too much trouble, food first class, rooms really clean and spacious, weather was hot(with a nice breeze). Reps really good and no trouble with transfers at all. Hopefully we will be returning next year with our partners.
