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.

Honestly had the best 10 days staying in this hotel. check in was quick and easy - and welcomed with a drink aswell. There is a huge choice of swimming pools, all very clean. the main pool has entertainment around it throughout the day. there is a pool with in water sun loungers. water park on site was good. The a la carte restaurants are well worth a visit - the food is beautiful!!! Main restaurants are lovely as well and there was plenty of choice. we used the 4 Corners restaurant most of the time as it was a bit quieter, but both have the same food. The entertainment team are fantastic and so friendly! coming round the pools every day asking if you want to join in with activities, but don't pester you if you say no. All in all a brilliant holiday and would recommend it to anyone!More
Really great week especially as happy to just chill in Hotel. Excellent service start to finish. Reception team and manager Mohames Hassan very efficient and helpful at check in. This was great as its a huge hotel and without the great check in could have been confusing! We had emailed ahead of time and Mohamed hassan answered all our questions. Food was very good with loads of choice at every meal ...chefs always in attendance to check everyone was happy or needed anything. Pools beautiful and clean just be careful floors can be a bit slippery. Entertainment was ok but as we ate letter we missed a few shows but people seemed to enjoy them. Room was very nice and clean and were well supplied with water and toiletries. Very happy with the price we paid and we would love to come back if we have the chance so thanks to all More
I went to this hotel in 2013 with my partner. From the time we arrived to the time we left we felt really welcome and relaxed. Upon arrival the check in process did drag a little but once that was over it was fairly straight forward getting to our room. The room we had backed onto the pool and pool bar which was great, we could sit on the open balcony (ground floor) and be next to the bar and pool to get drinks and food etc. I had 1 big scare when we got to our room and that was I had not got my passport on me! I searched the journey to the room and then tried the room we were getting welcomed in.. luckily I found it down the side of the chair I was sitting on!! We had an invite from the hotel to attend a cocktail evening and meet the hotel manager, chef and some staff members which was really nice and welcoming. The pools were great, the bars were great and the staff were helpful. The only issue I would say is that the food is not great, but having traveled to Egypt 3 times now I would say its about on par with everywhere else there. Overall it was a great holiday.More
Fabulous relacing holiday in Egypt
My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for a fortnight in February. It is a lovely resort hotel with plenty of places to eat and drink at. The staff are the friendliest you will meet and they canât do enough for you. The resort itself is spotlessly clean, the food is very good and there is a wide choice of drinks (to say that only locally produced alcohol is on offer). The hotel resort itself is split mainly into two areas â the relaxing quiet pool area and the activity pools, so you have a choice of how active / noisy you want your day to be. You can also spend time by the beach or one of the 3 water parks. Good points of which there are too many to mention: 1. Super friendly staff 2. Lovely food â choice of 3 buffet restaurants and 4 a la carte restaurants on an evening. During the day you have the 3 buffet restaurants (one of which is at the sister hotel Blue Marine which is adjoined to the Jaz), 2 pool bars, the beach bar and then little stalls serving waffles, hot dogs, pizza or fresh sandwiches. 3. The pools! So many to choose from â all very clean and well maintained, although not all are heated. 4. The beach bar is a gorgeous place (special thanks to Khaled and his team for making our stay so special). 5. The a la carte restaurants; our favourite was the Asian restaurant (special thanks to Youseff and Ahmed for their service on our 3 visits). 6. Very good for children; a couple of the pools are situated under canopies to provide a bit of shade, the animation team are loved by the children and the staff love children. 7. All the salad is washed in mineral water, the ice cubes are all made from mineral water too â so you can eat these freely. 8. Plenty of sunbeds in all areas (although you will always get the usual scenario of some people âreservingâ their favourite place at silly oâclock in the morning). I did actually have my towel stolen from one of the sunbeds (not the hotels fault) but Alaa sorted this out for me very quickly and effectively. 9. Both the activity pool bar and relaxing pool bar are nice. Not so good points (of which these are the only ones I can actually think of): 1. If you need an internet top up it is VERY expensive; 10 Euros for 250mb!! There are two pcâs in the lobby bar which provide free internet access but one of these appears broken and wouldnât load the web page we needed, both are very very slow and you are lucky if you can get near them as they are monopolised by teenagers, so you are left with no choice but to buy the hotelâs expensive top up (they give you 150mb free per room but this runs out very quickly if you have a modern smart phone â we only needed it to keep in touch via whatsapp with what was happening at home so we are not excessive users). I just think 10 Euros (Â£8.50!) is extortionate! 2. The staff begin cleaning the poolsides and walkways as soon as the sun goes down and the wet floors can be very slippery â so take care when walking about when cleaning is in progress and the floors slippery. 3. The entertainment on an evening is presented in the same area where the kids club is held â it gets very crowded in there and most of the chairs in there are for children. It is not comfortable for an adult to be sitting on child sized chairs. They really need to get more adult seating in there. If you want rocking night time entertainment you wonât get it here. The resort is low key with entertainment â there is the lobby bar and another 3 bars to sit in on an evening. After the kids club, the animation team usually put on a show for about an hour. Sometimes there is a live singer in the lobby bar. There is a disco at 11pm. Thatâs all. All quite low key but we enjoyed it. There is a camel called Oscar on the beach, he is a friendly soul and well looked after. He appreciates a little treat, if you get chance to go see him. You would need beach shoes for the beach though as it is quite rough on your feet. The sea at the hotel is very shallow and you can wade out for a very long time and not get past your knees, however the hotel next door has a sea water lagoon and I believe you are allowed to swim in this if you want a sea water swim. For breakfast we preferred the Four Corners buffet restaurant (the main Topaz restaurant was a bit too crowded and busy for us). We loved eating at the beach bar on a lunchtime. On an evening we went to the various a la carte restaurants and the various buffet restaurants. The water slides are very well run and great fun. Egyptian people are some of the friendliest you will ever meet (except at the airport â Hurghada airport is quite chaotic and the staff there are rude and unhelpful, which is the total opposite of most Egyptian people). The staff work very hard but always have a smile and stop for a chat with you. They don't expect tips but if you give a small tip now and again it is very much appreciated. This resort is beautiful and spotlessly clean. All in all, we had a fabulous holiday. We felt very safe in this resort and it is a shame that some people have let the troubles in Egypt out them off visiting this place. We had a brilliant time from start to finish and I am looking forward to visiting again next year. Thank you to all the team at the Jaz Aquamarine for their brilliant service.More

Just returned from a week at this hotel - visited with my partner and our 2 year old daughter. First let me advise you that this hotel is great there is lots to do and the food is lovely! The Makhi Thai Restaurant which serves Chinese fusion in an al a carte settings is just gorgeous - we went there twice as it was so nice. On 2 occasions we ate steak with peppercorn sauce made fresh in front of us at the buffet restaurant and it was delicious I cant fault the selection I was very pleased! The animation team were super as well, even though my daughter is not old enough to go to kids club alone I stayed with her on several occasions to enjoy a host of fun activities which was great. Our cleaner Mohammed was super, I only wish he could have come home with me!!! Very friendly and always left us a little towel surprise in the form of a different animal every day. The final thing I will comment on is that upon leaving the hotel I got to the airport and realised that I'd left a diamond ring in the safe needless to say I was distraught! We went to the information desk at the airport who contacted the hotel on my behalf who then sent a manager to my room, retrieved the ring and sent it via private transfer to reunite me with the item minutes before my flight boarded! I cannot thank the people involved in this matter enough and they handled the situation amazingly! I found the Egyptian people to be friendly and accommodating we will definitely be returning to this hotel!!!!! xMore
