Jaz Aquamarine

The pools take most of the applause here – there are 17 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 17 pools.

The pools come in all shapes and sizes, some 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.

Best hotel I have ever stayed in!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Jaz Aquamarine from 8th-15th September 2014. What an amazing place! I wish every hotel was like this, I honestly couldn't fault it. Our Thomson Rep (Sahed) was absolutely brilliant and couldn't do more for you and was always on hand to help and answer any questions. All staff in the hotel were extremely hard working and friendly and again couldn't do more for you. Our housekeeper (Emad) kept our room spotless throughout the week and made some great towel art. The hotel is so huge you could get lost and because of this it never feels too busy as everyone is spread out. People never reserved sunbeds too early and there was always plenty for everybody. The choice of pools was great and the aqua parks were great fun too. Food was varied, we went to the Italian and oriental restaurants which were lovely and spent most evenings dining in the four corners restaurants as found there was more choice and it was quieter. All bar and seating areas were very grand and comfortable. You can take advantage of the free wi fi in the lobby area which was good too. Overall I would strongly recommend this hotel to anybody and we very much enjoyed our relaxing stay! It would just be nicer if it wasn't such a long flight from England! Thankyou Thomson and everybody at the Jaz Aquamarine :)More


Absolutely Fabulous

Just returned from Jaz Aquamarine Hurghada in Egypt. We had an absolutely fabulous time at this great hotel, staff were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for them, we got to know just a few individuals from Ayemann on reception, Khalid at the pool bar and the Asian restaurant, Mustafa who served drinks around the activity pools and in the restaurant. They were all so helpful and fun to see each day, we were in room 5235 and our room was cleaned each day by Mohammed who did an amazing job keeping everything so perfect and also for his majestic towel designs each and every day. So many others went out of their way over and above what was expected just to make our stay more enjoyable. There are plenty of pools over 20 quiet ones activity ones and just enjoyable places to have fun, plenty of adult slides, plenty of sunbeds everywhere. Theme nights in the buffet restaurants made pleasant changes as well as 4 speciality ones, the Oriental which served Lebanese food was our favourite one and we visited it 4 times during our 14 days. The only negative from our trip was the buffet food was not always piping hot but we did not discover the microwaves until the last days of our holiday. Thompsons on the whole were good throughout although one very big annoyance was the visa scam, as you get of the bus from the plane they drop you at the airport building and you are directed inside and forward to an official looking Thompsons stand where you are charged £19 for an Egyptian visa, should be £10, the official banks/visa operators are directly to the left as you enter the hall as soon as you get through the doors, do not be guided to these scammers just because you see the Thompsons banner. You would like to think that Thompsons would be on top of this scam and inform their customers of it prior to arrival and stop them using their own banner/logo trademark.More

Amazing week

Loved this place. Excellent service really impressed. Warm , efficient and friendly check in and Reception staff always helpful when we needed assistance. Food and drink choices more than acceptable and easy to find tables if you avoid the buffets when they first open or use the a la cartes with unlimited visits. We visited all of them and would hat to have to pick a favourite.night life quite low key but enjoyed a few drinks and watched the dancing after dinner.place was beautiful lovely grounds and pools always immaculate . Excellent stay and will return.More

Wonderful time and an honest review.

My friend and I spent 2 beautiful weeks at this lovely hotel and I would like to give a totally honest review. Firstly, yes the airport is like a mine field but we coped, as you do. Everyone on Tripadvisor says go to the left to get your visa as it's cheaper.......don't bother, that's the side that's like the cattle market. It really wasn't a problem, just give your £20 and they'll give you your £1 change. We had real reservations about Jaz Aquamarine because so many people have slated it, but when we arrived and shown to our room, all we could say was wow and omg!!!!! It was stunning, and that was at 11:30pm. We were in room 5249 and it was lovely, big, immaculate and a wonderful suprise. We tended to eat mostly at the Four Corners as yes, there weren't quite so many children, but we did go in to the main buffet restaurant too and it wasn't half as bad as people had said. Not forgetting we were there from 15th-29th August. Aparently the hotel was full but it never seemed like it. The beach: Yes it's very coarse sand a bit like brick dust but we still loved it and enjoyed using the sunbeds down on the grass. Again, I really don't know why people moaned about it? I would just say we took shoes to wear because the coral under the sand can be rough, but only felt the need to wear them once. The tide does go out far but it's lovely walking out. The hotel is kept to perfection but I wouldn't consider it a 5* platinum. Mostafar our cleaner was wonderful and we left him a nice tip at the end of our stay. We also didn't feel we had to tip anyone, even when the porter bought our cases to our room and showed us how to use the safe, I went to my purse and when I turned round he was gone. All of the staff are lovely and especially my sweet Diaa on reception. he greeted us the night we arrived and I had a problem with one of the photography guys and he reported it straight to the Manager and it was dealt with instantly. We felt very comfortable and when you are asked about the massage or spa treatments you just say no thank you. This really wasn't a problem and they give up after a while. People have gone on about the repetitive food, but every all inclusive I have ever been to, the food is repetitive, so whats new. There was a great variety and well presented. I did actually make sure I had eggs of some sort every morning, plenty of orange or pineapple, salt on my meals (which I don't often have) and sugar in my coffees instead of sweeteners as keeping your body up on the vitaminC, salts & sugars helps to stop any dehydration, trust me, the amount we drank for the first week and peed out was no comparison lol. You don't need to worry about the ice in your drinks, go for it, it's fine. The only real problem I had, which actually wasn't a problem but personal opinion, was the heat!!! It didn't let up and even in the evening if there was a breeze, it was like a hot hairdryer being blown at you for sure. I love it hot but if I go back, it certainly won't be in August, just too intense. A definite must is to go to Mahmaya Island, a touch of Jamaica, and it truly was! It was beautiful and you can stay and snorkel in the shallow waters or they will take you to deeper waters which we did. Stunning coral and fish. Loved it there and would go again & again. The need for air con is a must but we wouldn't keep it on overnight because it does your throat & chest in when you're not used to it. We had our patio doors open and kept the mozzie plug in plugged in. I would like to make a very big suggestion to the hotel management and say Fantasia, where the entertainment and kids clubs are held.....you really need to get a bar sorted out and AIR CON.....p-l-e-a-s-e. The entertainment kids work so hard to put on good shows but you can't stay in there for longer than 10-15mins, its just too hot!!! Check out the guy who paints the kids names in the evening, he is amazing!!! There are too many names to write (I'm suprised it's let me keep going this long lol) but a big thank you to the whole of the staff at Jaz Aquamarine, you are tireless and are always smiling. You do a great job. If anyone wants to ask anything, please don't hesitate to message me. I hope I have given you something to look forward to. Lastly, yes the floor tiles are ridiculously slippery but I guess you can't have a beautiful smooth floor covering without it, just walk carefully, and when we were there, it was too hot to walk on from about 10am.....I know, unbelievable right lol. We enjoyed the Jaz Aquamarine and everything about it. Would I go back? Yes but not for 2wks, maybe 10 days.More

Great pool scene..

Not a 5 star hotel but great pool areas, clean and spacious rooms and a good variety of food. Would rate the hotel as a 4 star myself.. The hotel really need to invest in better wifi as it is a nightmare to connect to and you only get 150mb of it for free. The al a carte dining was all fantastic and we especially enjoyed the Chinese. We payed for late checkout through Thomson, however the hotel had no records of this and locked us out of our room at 1pm, although our stuff was still in the room. After complaining to reception and having to wait for them to check.. They let us back in. This was very inconvenient. Although there are a couple of improvements to be made, this hotel was pleasant and I would recommend it to others. More
