Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very good hotel, new, clean. The food was good, varied. Heated swimming pools - including swim up - are the perfect solution for the colder season. The service was very nice, Mohamed from Splash Pool Bar took great care of the guests during the entire stay. The gentleman who cleaned our room surprised us every day with figurines made of towels. It was very nice. I recommend staying in this place.

The Perfect Vacation.

From the minute of our arrival,
we where greated by the warmest welcome, followed by a wonderful array of food prepared by Ahmed and his team.

Superb entertainment and the most amazing cocktails prepared by Sakr and his team, Islam, Ehab and Mohanmed. Check out the Velvety Expresso Martini, one of the best cocktails I have ever tasted. Special thank you to Sakr who made sure I was never without a Velvety Expresso Martini.

Our room was cleaned everyday to the highest standard by Ahmed, who always greated us with a smile and asked if there is anything we required.

The buffet was exquisite, freshly prepared by Ahmed and his team. Saide greeted us everyday with our drinks order and made sure we were well looked after.

The beautiful Beach Bar has the most amazing food and superb array of drinks, nothing is too much for Karem and his team, who do their upmost to make your stay extra special.

A huge thank you to Mr Tarek and the Jaz team from John and Christina. We had the most amazing Holiday.

We spent two weeks at the Jaz Amara in April.

The hotel is absolutely beautiful, modern and clean it really gives a 5 star feel on arrival.
Check in was fast and efficient, with drinks and cold towels which was nice after travelling. The room was spacious and modern and we had a nice view overlooking the adult pool and entertainment area.

To be completely honest, in the first few days there were a couple of minor things to mention… the service could feel a little bit touch and go in the mornings at breakfast, but in fairness this was improved after a few days. The evening table/ drinks service could also be a tad slow, but this was in no way down to the waiting staff themselves whom worked very hard and would serve as quickly as possible, but rather more down to the management side of things, in that they should have more waiting staff working in the evenings. Our shower blocked a several times, but again they sent someone pretty much immediately every time to deal with it where possible once we had left the room.

Other than that (the above things being pretty minor) and in some way expected teething problems with such a new Hotel.

Overall... the hotel was absolutely spotless, the beach was nice, the gym clean and modern with a good amount of equipment, our room was kept immaculately clean by the very hard working cleaner.
The food in the buffet restaurant was high quality and varied never getting boring, the beach restaurant was lovely both in the day and evenings, and the Asian restaurant Tao Tao was absolutely out of this world, both food and service👌🏼

We tended to chill by the adult pool in the day and the pool attendant Salah was very accommodating with towels and beds etc.. and we were looked after and kept refreshed regularly by Alaa our pool side waiter whom was absolutely excellent 👌🏼

All the staff were professional, polite and courteous and the hotel had a really nice vibe to it.

We really enjoyed our stay here and look forward to staying again when we next visit Marsa Alam

The hotel is fantastic, the food and drinks are delicious, service is great. Everything is at the highest level. The entire hotel is modern and the crew pays attention to the smallest details. It's a pleasure to stay here. The hotel deserves 5 stars.

Visited with my husband for Christmas 2023 and New Year 2024 during the hotel’s ’soft opening.’
From the moment we arrived in this beautiful and well thought-out hotel we were stunned by the attentive customer service during our past-midnight check in and after a long day of travelling in the UK and to Egypt, the three course dinner that greeted us was very much appreciated.
This standard of excellence from all staff was consistently delivered on a daily basis until we left on 4th Jan.
We were delighted on Christmas Day when we saw the beauty of the hotel: the amazing design of the swimming pools; the abundance of spacious loungers and shade; the combed beach; the welcoming and attractive bars and the several restaurants serving a delicious variety of menus.
However, the star of the show must go to all of the amazing staff recruited and trained by the equally brilliant managers. The staff truly went above and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. They are a credit to Mr. Torak and the JHG brand.
We look forward to our return to Marsa Alam and the Jaz Amara in the near future.

The Jazz Amara Hotel is brand new opened Hotel. Wre arrived here for the New Year Eve celebration week. The Hotel itself is very clean and look outstanding.
The staff hear is amazing starting with the Lobby Bar, the best drink and the entertainment was provided by great employee call Sakr - great, nice and very friendly person, followed by his team, especially lslam - who was also extremely experienced and made us very tasty drink being very friendly and attend to details. Also I can not forget about great service from Ehab and Hussain who always make sure that we have our drinks.
Specials comments also go to Karim who was working on the Bay View Beach Bar who always prepare the best afternoon coffee and drinks. I would also would like to mention very nice waiter named Mohamed Elgar Al who was such a nice person, always extremely friendly and helpful. All of them are professional and huge asset to the Jaz Amara Hotel.
The entertainment team, especially Selim was great, always keep us extremely entertained and look after us, being very friendly.
The food here is always very tastefully and everyone will find something for themselves .
The huge thank you goes to the Hotel Manager Mr Tarek who was always here when we needed him, very professional and knowledgeable person that has an amazing people skills and is extremely welcome and lovely as a person.

The Hotel has a huge potential and as soon as it will be fully running it will be an amazing holiday destination.

I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone and we would definitely come back to this Hotel while is fully running.
Thank you to all employees!

Relatively small, brand-new hotel situated in a bay. The bay is packed with sea turtles which are a treat to watch.

Door and drinks are great at the hotel. Beach and pool bars offer à la carte lunches, buffet for breakfast and dinner is correct. Bars offer great variety of mocktails and cocktails.

Staff is extremely and genuinely friendly.

The hotel was very friendly, immediately upon arrival breakfast and accommodation were provided. Reception very nice and formalities quickly, all the time any information immediately available. The room itself is large, spacious and always clean. It is useful to store two pieces of luggage, which is not standard. Also a beach towel always in the room and it was changed to a clean one at any time. The beach is nice, there are plenty of sunbeds, it's just a bit windy, but the hotel is not responsible for that. Very helpful staff, where drinks were also served on the beach. The restaurant is spacious and the food is tasty, and it's great that it's on the beach, where you can have lunch and refreshments at any time. There is always plenty of space at the main bar in the evening and very helpful staff who very quickly brought us everything we wanted. Maybe the white wine, we didn't like it much, but after testing the pink, everything was fixed and we already knew what we were going to taste. Thank you all very much for a wonderful holiday, including the evening program. Thank you once again

During our one week stay, we experienced the most amazing holiday ever!
We felt like a king & his queen because of the friendliness and the professionality of the complete staff.
They all pampered us from the early morning until the late evening!
We want to express a special thank you to Karim, “our” personal bar tender at the beach, he made our day every single day.
Actually we could go on writing about the excellency of the food prepared by the Executive Chef and his team, the most tasteful architecture, the cleanliness of the whole resort, the attention paid by Salim & his animation team, the availability of Omar at the front office (but not only), the kindness of the general manager as well as his flexibility,… but we simply prefer to say “SHUKRAN, JAZ AMARA!”

The hotel is very good as it's new mentions for Amar waiter buffet restaurant Merna young Egyptian lady in restaurant very friendly deserves a better job position Ibrahim in lobby bar.
All the staff at la vista restaurant.
Not sure buffet would cope if hotel was near capacity as only 1 service area other hotels of the capacity normally 2 identical serving areas.
Also on a personal note my hotel room enjoyment was spoilt by the TV being set so no external devices could be used such as Amazon fire stick as not a proper remote control used
As on subject of room also a shout out to cleaner Karim &at reception Nadar
