The pools take most of the applause here – there are 17 altogether, plus a duo 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 17 pools.
The pools come in all shapes and sizes, 1 just for adults, others geared towards kids – plus there are 2 waterparks. Food-wise, the numbers stack up, too, with a couple of buffet restaurants and 4 à la cartes.

Don't look for any other hotels...this is the one
This is the second biggest hotel in Hurghada. You can't get bored of this hotel and me and partner were really sad to go. The entertainment is spot on and the facilities are perfect. You really do not need to leave the hotel because there's so much to do there and explore. It's great for couples or families. Very romantic place, always kept clean too. The rooms are very spacious and we had a view of the swimming pools. I am impressed with the food variety and drinks variety too. There's so many different restaurants in the hotel to visit so you'd never get bored. The entertainment is the best i have seen compared to any other hotel i've been to. The atmosphere is great from the morning all the way to the evening. Location wise: it's on a strip with other hotels...as most resort hotels there's not much to do outside the hotel. But the taxis are so cheap if you wanted to go to the Marina or sheraton road to shop. Spa wise: it's not free to use like we thought. It actually costs 25 euros per person for 2 hours without any treatments. The only reason i have marked this 4 stars instead of 5 is because of spa sales people that always hassle you and the prices we were given. So we were offered a 3 day spa for Â£360 each which i found very amusing...eventually went all the way down to Â£120 each. All we wanted was a massage for one day but we were constantly given the 3 day spa option. When i think of a 5 star hotel...i think honest and fixed prices. It should only be fair that people pay the same price for the same treatments. The spa was very expensive, but it did look very nice i just think the sales tactics need to be reviewed for such an elegant hotel. Apart from that, everything is great and i would definitely return again in future and would recommend this hotel.More
Dont work well under pressure!!
We are Egyptian/Americans who are back and forth between the US and Egypt, and whenever we are in Egypt we visit Hurghada. We are always in steigenberger AL dau beach, but this time we chose to change as we visited jaz aquamarine 2 yrs ago and it was not a bad experience. Sadly this time was horrible. Firstly, the food was not the best it felt like the chicken that was not eaten at dinner was made for lunch the next day. Secondly, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to review your bill at check out!!!! As they decided to charge us 850 LE extra for mini bar items that were never even in our fridge in the first place. It is not our problem because of the heavy load of check in and check outs that your employees do not do their job and check the mini bar in between guests. And when we complained they left us waiting for an hour and then acted as if they removed the amount as a compliment from them. HoW Rude, they couldn't even apologize!! We also noticed that another guest next to us had the same exact problem! We have been to jaz aquaviva and jaz almaza bay last year and this is by far the worst in the jaz collectin hotels! More
This hotel has got it right
I can be difficult reviewing these types of Hotel. What you normally get for your money are either the facitities such as countless pools, waterparks etc but have to compromise on the quality or you get great quality but not many facilities. Well, I am glad to say that this hotel has got the balance just right. The pools and waterparks are fantastic, and the hotel is very well laid out, so louder areas are well separated from the quieter ones. The grounds are very beautiful and well kept, and the beach is right at the end of the complex. Rooms are of very good size, very clean and well equipped, and are far enough away from the main area where the restaurants and entertainments are. The food is of very good standard. You know what to expect from the all-inclusive buffets, but this hotel is doing it very well. There are two main restaurants, one serves your usual international buffet, the other one is divided into four sections: Mediterranean, Italian, Asian and Oriental. The choices in the latter one are not huge, but again the food itself is very good. Also, my wife is a vegetarian and found enough choice at most mealtimes. There are various bars from livelier ones to quieter ones, and again the choice and quality of the drinks is above what you would expect. And lastly, the staff. Extremely friendly, helpful and nice. Take your time and stop and chat to them, al lot have interesting stories to tell, have laugh with them, it makes for a nicer experience. Okay, so a lot of people want to sell you excursions, diving, massages etc, but again, once you let them know you are not interested, chat...... All in all, a wonderful stay at the Jaz Aquamarine.More
Egyptian Mess and overcrowded in busy season
booked room not available, waiting period for check in over 1 hour; long queues from breakfast and dining tables, service no longer as friendly as in October period, the more guest the less opportunities (closing service stations etc.)More
Stayed at the Aquamarine the two weeks before Easter weekend as a family of four. We stayed in a Superior Family room which even though it is one room it has small section with two separate beds with a door separating the areas. This was great setup for a family and is recommended. Housekeeping did a good job and looked after us well. Jaz Aquamarine is a very large resort with visitors from many European countries and Egyptian visitors as well. The hotel copes well with all the different nationalities and demands of the guests. There is a kids club but this wasn't used by us as the age range is up to 8 year old. There is a Teen activity programme for 9 - 18year olds which included organised games of football, volleyball, water polo and darts with the animation team. There are three lots of slides (if including the Blue Marine hotel slides) that are great for adults and older children (above a certain height). Safety at the slides was excellent. Younger children have their own pool with small slides. In the buffet restaurants there are kid sections with food served at a lower height and in the Al a Carte restaurants there are kids menus. We were impressed with the health and safety of the pool areas where there was guards watching at all times to stop any silly antics. If accidents happened in the pool they were closed quickly and cleaned thoroughly. The main pool next to La Perla Pool bar was heated and to be honest it was too hot for our liking. This was the busiest pool with the animation team and loud music all day. Sunbeds were reserved quickly in this area but sunbeds were readily available at other pools which suited us. Drinks service around the lagoon style pool next to the beach was non-existent and over two weeks we only got asked once if we wanted a drink. Would be a higher star rating if drinks were served in all areas and not just those directly next to the bar. The hotel was very busy and this showed in the buffet restaurant, Topaz, which appeared to struggle to cope. Queues were forming at popular areas like omelettes at breakfast and French fries at dinner. For a quieter meal the Four Corners buffet was a good option. As we booked with Thomson we could visit each of the four al a carte restaurants once per week which we did enjoy. The only restaurant we didn't enjoy was the Italian, Nino's where the service was rushed and not a relaxing experience. Would recommend for good service and food Sofra Oriental and Corallo Seafood restaurants. Yasser in the Topaz restaurant was great at looking after us and remembered what we usually drank but he was really busy with other jobs and it felt that more staff were needed for this hotel to be a true 5star hotel. It would be better if at meals in the Topaz and Four Corners that water was poured at the tables as in the "a la cartes" and coffee/tea was served at the tables at breakfast and wine was served at dinner at the tables. What usually happened at the buffet restaurants was that numerous trips were needed to the food and drink areas and this meant that the family didn't sit and eat together as one of us was usually going for more drinks and food! After dinner we usually went to Fayrouz lobby bar and we were looked after well by the staff serving in this area. However, when the hotel became busier service suffered and it definitely felt that more staff were needed for this hotel to keep its 5star standard. We did have a good holiday but a five star rating would be given if the service was improved at the pool areas, buffet and bar areas.More
