The pools take most of the applause here – there are 18 altogether, plus a quartet 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.

Great property poor service
The Good: The property is stunning - very well designed, with great amenities catering for the families with children. I have booked a family room which was spacious and with good pool view. The waterslides have kept the kids occupied for a good portion of the day. The Bad: no beach - this hotel has no beach, but plenty of pools. So don't expect that you would enjoy the underwater treasures of the Red Sea there. Also, the main restaurants are an interesting experience, busy and low quality food. The solution is to opt for the menu based restaurants for a small fee. Also the internet while free is very poor. The Ugly: the service is very poor and customer service is not upto standard of a five stars resort. I had an incident where at check out the hotel refused to return my cash deposit when I requested to pay with credit card! The response was: "sorry we don't have enough cash on hand!"More

Very good relaxing holiday.
We have just returned from the Jaz, following a 2 week family holiday with our sons, aged 15 and 17. We were a little unsure as to what to expect as reviews so variable, however we need not have worried, we all very much enjoyed our stay. What was a lovely suprise was the warm breeze there, although temperatures were in the mid 40s the breeze kept us all comfortable. Hotel and rooms. The hotel is very big and was very busy during our time there, but that was expected for peak season. The hotel is extremely clean and the grounds well maintained. The rooms are of a good size with great air con, and again kept spotlessly clean, which was much appreciated. There is a small army of hotel employees working very hard, and you will always see someone cleaning, gardening and offering help to hotel guests. It would be unfair to single out any one employee as being outstanding, it was our experience that all were friendly, polite and genuinely helpful. Many thanks to all. Food. We found the food very good, and could always find something we liked to eat. We ate mainly in the main restaurant (Topaz) and the al acartes. Our sons especially liked the snack bars near the beach, and ate very well!! We found the choice of food in Topaz to be better, and the restaurant very well organised even when busy. There is always a baked carvery option, pasta cooked freshly to your choice, a live cooking station, large choice of salads, breads and cheeses/cold meats. At breakfast and lunch there is a pannini area, where you can make your self a fresh toasted pannini. The Asian a la carte was a family favourite, and the tapanaki was well worth the extra charge - the chef is amazing! Ninos was OK but felt it did not live up to expectation. All staff involved in handling food wear protective gloves, and could be seen wiping down surfaces regularly. Drinks were freely available from all bars and snack kiosks, but we would suggest that the provided paper cups could be a bit bigger Pools and beach. There are so many to choose from it comes down to personal choice. Again all were kept spotlessly clean and filters changed several times a day. We found the music a little loud near some of the pools, and as our sons are teenagers spent our time by the beach. The sea is warm and shallow (think Weston Supermare) and bay safe. For swimming we used the empty hotel nextdoors bay (otherside of the spit that is shown on the hotel pics) and there the sea is deep enough for adults to swim in. We went snorkling at the end of the spit and saw a good amount of different fish. Entertainment. The hotel animation team are amazing, always smiling and there is good programme of events to join in with if you want. There is a programme for teenagers too, as well as the kids club. The animation team also provide some of the evening entertainment too. Entertainment is described as low key, and that suited us, however we would say that the theatre is too small and hot to spend any time in, and the hotel would benefit from an outside ampitheatre. General. We found check in and out quick and easy, given the amount of guests arriving /departing at the same time. Bring enough suncream to last your stay as it is very expensive to buy in the shops, and do remember to make sure to have Â£20 PER PERSON available in cash to pay for visas at the airport. Would we go back again.... yes if we were travelling as a family, as our sons had a wonderful time, and linked up with other teenagers.More
JAZ AQUAMARINE HOTEL HURGHADA
Outstanding hotel. 5 star here really is 5 star. My partner and i travelled with my two teenage daughters and we all had an amazing holiday. The complex is huge so we never felt like we were all on top of each other. We upgraded to a family room which was a nice size. The staff work really hard and really cannot do enough for you. The food was varied and lots of it. My daughter is vegan and they really catered for her needs too. Water slides are great fun and the relax pool with the sunbeds in are fabulous particularly when it reaches the hottest part of the day. Cocktails were lovely in the evening andMore
jodi p, Watford, United Kingdom
average is a fair review
Not the 5* experience that was promised !!!! Butlins with sunshine is a fair comparison of jaz aqua marine, although to give Butlins credit we have never suffered the tummy problems like we experienced at jaz, my husband spent 3 days not leaving the room as he was so ill. The front desk staff were terrible, and at the end of our stay tried to charge us for items we had not used. The main two restaurants were awful, food served at tepid temps and were tasteless and bland .There was never any clean glasses to get drinks as its self service. The wine is beyond a joke and undrinkable (the red wine was fizzy and had a better head on it than the lager on offer) but you could purchase a nice bottle for 40 pounds (english).There is also a no reserving sunbed policy...... yet every morning we watched people from our balcony placing towels on sunbeds at 6am yet did not return to the said reserved sunbeds until after noon if not later, the alacarte restaurants were ok except the seafood one, but the booking in system is a lottery, we spoke to several familiy,s that never got one booking throughout a two week stay. you can not enter the swimming pools in a t-shirt not even children if they are burning, which is frustrating considering the high temps. Entertainment is average and the bar staff are only acommadating if you are tiping!!!!!On the plus side the guy that cleaned our room was great and we looked forward to seeing which animal he would create from the towels every day. We booked the holiday for our 12 year old son, thinking he would love the water slides, he never went on one..... the entire 11 days we were there, he was either too ill or the queues were too long to wait in, in the 45/47 temps with no shade !! The main pool was closed twice due to faeces in the pool !!!!!!! On our return to the airport to come home the coach driver would not release your cases from the coach unless you tipped him !!!! I know this review sounds so negative and i am only being honest, but me and my husband work very hard all year so we can enjoy a good family holiday in the summer and this year we feel cheated, (although my husband is ten pounds lighter). The staff at the bars and the individual stalls serving pizza etc were so hostile it was amusing. (one family in front of us were thrown their pizza,s at them. we spent most of our time around the RELAXING pools. children were not allowed to play with pool balls or squirty guns yet we were hounded by spa/ camel/ watersports/family photos constantly relaxing it was not...More
Lisa R, Leeds, United Kingdom
The hotel owners sure spent a fortune to built this hotel. But ., they employed a stuff not for a five stars hotel at all . 1 st the reception when you enter you find the most unprofessional reception ever polite kind but .....not really friendly yellow smile. The rooms are. Nice but very cheap towels. Cheap covers. The restaurant stuff You feel how dirty clothes and they smell bad.. Again. The hotel could be much much better but needs trained stuff .Nice for kids but if you are used to really 5 stars standard s try something elseMore
