Firstly both my good lady and I where confused on arrival in Egypt, we spoke to the holiday rep and ased which coach to get on and where told no 13 when we told him the Hotel Name, on getting on the coach with othrr holiday people, on departure from Airport we were told that it would take 20 t0 25 minutes to the Jaz Auamarine Hotel. When I asked about the Iberotel Aquamarine I was informed it was the same hotel as the Jaz.
On arrival at the hotel we where told to register at reception then put room number tickets on our lugage it would then be taken to the room. We had been alocated room 3279 this is at the far end of the middle left hand block, grest room view of pools and sea. Room a bit tired needs uplift, but comfortable and clean. 16 swimming pools on the complex two with water shoots for those who like them.
There are no lifts that I could find and on calculation the number of steps to climb every time you left or returned to your room, there was 40 steps to the top floor, then 18 steps to the buffet restaraunt. Making my total steps per day to climb upmor down over 300 per day. Not good if you are bad on your mobility.
Food was average for Egypt even as it is classed as a 5 star, the Italian Restaraunt "Nino's" was great. House wine included but you can purchase by the bottle a better wine than the house wine. Be aware thst if you want a priemium drink such as a scotch you have to pay one whiskey will cost you 125 Egyption pound =£12.25 in english pounds.
The hotel was running at only 30% while we where there, so it was loverly and pieceful, if you like to swim in the sea you may have a long walk on your hands as the depth is shallow we walked out for over 15 minutes and thecwater was still only up to our knees.
Hotel staff are great they will do anything to help if you ask, they are friendly and cheerful, cleaning staff are also very friendly and keep the room lovely and clean. There is a safe in the room but you have to use six didgets not the usual 4 caused me a problem but we got round it.
