The pools take most of the applause here – there are 18 altogether, plus a trio of bonus waterparks.
Formerly known as the Iberotel Aquamarine, this hotel is huge. It comes with a beach – a private number decked out with thatched-roof daybeds – and a jaw-dropping 18 pools.
The pools come in all shapes and sizes, 1 just for adults, others geared towards kids – plus there are 3 waterparks. Food-wise, the numbers stack up, too, with a couple of buffet restaurants and 4 à la cartes.

Not as good as first visit
Visited here in February 2014 with 3 friends. We enjoyed it so much that I persuaded my husband to visit in November 2015. Perhaps it was because the hotel was less busy in 2014 and we were allowed unlimited visits to the a la carte restaurants that we enjoyed it so much. Sadly my husband and I didn't enjoy it so much mainly because we felt that the food in both buffet restaurants was limited and not particularly good. We tried the Four Corners on two occasions and on both the Oriental section was closed off and the Asian section had nothing there except chips! We didn't feel that this buffet offered anything different from the Topaz main buffet. It may be that we just couldn't find many things that we wanted to eat. We do not eat pasta, pizza and burgers on holiday as we can have them at home any time. We look forward to trying different foods but these were very limited and many of the choices were not particularly appetising. We looked forward to the 'International' themed evening but it was the same old food as other evenings. That said we really enjoyed the Lebanese, Asian and Seafood restaurants and the food in the lunchtime snack bar. Our room was very nice although the beds were rather hard and the grounds of the hotel are kept beautifully. We spent our days relaxing near the adult pool and special mention goes to Youssef at the Relax Pool Bar who looked after us extremely well delivering our coffees and G&Ts with a smile just when we wanted them. Service throughout the hotel was good and usually delivered with a beaming smile. We won't be returning but I'm sure lots of other people will.More

Fabulously relaxing....which was exactly what we wanted ð
We had wanted a last minute relaxing winter break with guaranteed sunshine and having never been to Egypt chose this particular area as it was less commercialised and the hotel looked great. And we couldn't have picked a better place...the hotel was fantastic....location ideal right next to the beach. Our room was lovely, the food excellent and the staff very polite and pleasant. We honestly couldn't fault it at all. If you like to go 'off site' and visit local bars/restaurants then this would not be the place for you. The hotel is located outside of the main area of Hurghada and to be honest I don't think there is much there but you wouldn't really need to go off site as there is more than enough to suit everyone. The hotel has two main restaurants (one slightly smaller), three pool bars serving 18 (yes 18) pools (these do include the kiddie pools), a beach bar, four a la crate and kiosks by the beach area offering snacks and drinks during the day so I don't think you would struggle to find something to suit your taste. We tried three of the a la cartels (Middle eastern, Italian and fish - middle eastern was our favourite). We couldn't get a place in the Asian fusion one as it was fully booked which speaks volumes for the quality. There are two main bar areas for the evening one with entertainment) with a couple of the pool bars offering selected evening entertainment too. There is also a nightclub where the in house entertainment team put on nightly shows (although can't comment on them as we didn't go) and the club then runs from 10pm - 2am although it didn't seem to get much use whilst we there. I would try to avoid any accommodation in A block as this located nearest to the disco and may have some noise. We s aged in C block on the third floor overlooking the main pool. It was a great location and very quiet. We stayed in a family superior room which was the only choice available when booking but tbh we couldn't have picked better ourselves. There is a separate living area which converts to two single beds then a dressing area with the bathroom off it and then leading to a separate bedroom with queen sized bed and balcony. One worthy note is that if you have problems accessing stairs then you must request a ground floor room as there are no lifts. Most a ears are low level although the main restaurants and bars are up one level and there appeared to be only two ramps, however this did not seem to be a problem as there were several people in wheelchairs and lots of buggies! As the resort is still spread out it never never felt like there was lots of people apart from the main meal times but again the opening times were very generous and the food regularly replenished so yiu never had to queue and the staff were happy to assist in finding a suitable table for all. There are two free waterparks on site which proved popular. Plenty of sunbeds available over a vast area so no having to get up at silly o'clock to reserve one (although some dud as they wanted a specific site round the main pools). We used to go the pool nearer the beach as it was quieter. The sea is lovely however due to the man made beach it is very shallow ideal for little ones but if you want to swim you would need to go out for a long way and the current could be quite strong. Kite surfing is very popular and it's quite good to just stand in the sea and watch the stunts people do. So all in all I would highly recommend the hotel....we would definitely go back for a winter break (think it would be too hot and very busy in the height of summer). We couldn't fault it at all....I just hope recent events don't put people off visiting this gem of a place.More
We just got back from a short 3 night stay at Jaz Aquamarine. We had a fantastic experience. It is definitely a hotel made for families. Our room had a small area for the kids to sleep, separate from the main bedroom, giving the adults privacy. The kids loved the water slides and kept them busy for hours. They had snacks and drinks whenever they wanted. We only ate at the buffet and the pool bars and the food was ok, nothing great. I heard the restaurants were a lot better but only being there a short time, we were fine eating at the buffet with no extra charge. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are people selling things around the resort as you try to relax. It didn't bother us too much, I just said "no thank you" and they left. After the first day, they knew I was not interested and left us alone. Not sure I would come to this resort as a couple but for families it is perfect. It is close to the airport, so no long commute in the car to get to your hotel. More
Fantastic first trip to Egypt
We arrived for a 7day all inclusive holiday, my son his girlfriend, my 15 year old daughter and I were a little nervous travelling to Egypt after recent evnets in Sharm. However from the moment we arrived we couldn't have felt safer. The trip to the hotel was quite quick and on arrival we were greeted by a British liaison who worked at the hotel and gave us detailed information on the check in process. Check in was quick and we were escorted to our rooms where we were given a complementary fruit plater and a bottle 1.5l bottle of Coke and sprite. There was also a bottle of water 2l which was replenished daily. The mini fridge in the room was stocked with drinks and snacks but we're not part of the all inclusive package, a price list was in the room and also a menu for room service which also I cured an additional cost. We didn't use either as there was plenty to eat at the various restaurants and snack bars. You are provided with a very useful map and guide to the hotel when you arrive which tells you the location and opening times of all the bars and restaurants. There are 4 themed restaurants and depending on the length of your stay you have a limited number of reservation available. You book these using the touch screen computers in the hotel reception area, don't worry if you don't get a booking receipt as if you give your room number when you visit the restaurant they will find you on their list. Some things at the restaurants do incur an additional charge but the menus are clear with prices at the side of anything that will be charged extra. The food was good with plenty of choice (even for my daughter who can be a fussy eater) and the snack bars around the hotel open from 12- 17.00 serving a variety of things depending on where you go, from pizza to burger and chips, crepes and waffles and of course drinks are free flowing. Soft drinks are self service from most areas. There is one bar open 24hours which the travel agents don't always mention but you will be told about it on arrival. There is free wifi up to 300MB per room with a maximum of 2 devices registered per room. You can buy more if you need it but it lasted us for the week, sending the odd message and picture to friends and family back home. There is a black door in reception (left hand side as you enter the hotel) with ATM on the door. This is where the currency exchange machine and cash machine is. Just follow the instructions on the screen and put your English notes in, Egyptian pounds will come out along with two receipts, most places take sterling so we only exchanged a little money. Take an extension cord with you if you have more than one item that needs to plug in at once as there was only one socket available in the room, the others were used for various lamps. The rooms were immaculately clean and the hotel provided shower gel, shampoo and conditioner as well as a shower cap and sewing kit ( which came in really handy when I suffered a bikini malfunction). Towel art everyday on the bed and our cleaner even took requests as my daughter left a note asking for an elephant on our last day. Of the 18 or so pools there are a number that are heated and the map highlights these. The water slides were a great source of fun and the pools for them are heated also. The beach has very course sand. Take swim shoes if you can (they are available to buy at the little shops on site). The water is very shallow for a long way out, we found this great and enjoyed paddling out towards the rocks where we saw starfish, catfish and we were lucky enough to see a stingray right by the shore. We did a couple of excursions, quad bikes were fantastic and the Red Sea snorkelling trip was phenomenal.... Not everyone's cup of tea as the water is really deep, you can see the bottom it's so clear and the coral reefs were beautiful. We hired wetsuits but on the third stop of the day we didn't use them as the water was really warm. The weather was fantastic topping 31degress most days. The only negative I have is the mosquitos took a liking to me a little too much. I did use insect repellent but they just liked the taste of me I guess. Do take sunscreen and a good antiseptic cream for bites as I understand medical attention carries quite a cost. The hotel, staff, location, food and holiday in general get 5 stars from me. I don't usually visit the same place twice, but I will be going back to the Jaz Aquamarine x x xMore

Something for everyone
Our second visit to this hotel was every bit as good as the first. There were more families with children this time but we were easily able to avoid them by going to the adults pool where it was lovely and quiet with excellent bar service (thanks to Youssef and Solomon). The water slides are great fun. We visited the spa for massages four times, each time was very enjoyable and the package we purchased was good value. All the staff were lovely and the grounds, maintenance and cleaning staff keep it looking clean and beautiful. We enjoyed all our meals there although often the beef dishes were a bit too salty. We visited all the a la carte restaurants bar the Italian as we did not enjoy that one on our last visit. The evening show is family orientated so it would be nice to have some other entertainment for adults. One of the animation team sang to backing tracks every other evening but this was finished by 10pm. The club that is meant to start at 11pm is never well attended, I think this is because of the theatre style set up of the room which doesn't lend itself to a club atmosphere. But this is a minor thing that would not put me off going again!More
