“sharmazing!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

Ok, so as usual we researched this hotel and the prices on here, with comparison sites and the norm, and after we had booked we had a few concerns as you do when you see reviews slating the place and saying to avoid it.... Having booked with Easy jet, we got this hotel for a song.... through the likes of TC and Thomson it would have cost more than double what we paid, so you should defo look at using Easy jet.... it was hassle free check in, 20kgs per person of checked in luggage, plus unlimited weight but only one piece of hand luggage that fits into the little metal thingy.... but to be honest those small cabin cases are perfect and they easily pass the test!! So once checked in, flew from Stansted where you can now also take onto the plane one carrier bag, so all the duty free, snacks etc can be in there!!! We only went for one week, but with this luggage allowance we could easily have stayed for 3!!!!
On arrival at Sharm airport we had booked a private taxi transfer for £18, absolutely worth the money. was with A2B travel, and totally brilliant, from landing to getting into our room it was 40 minutes!!!!
The hotel, well where to start, am not going to write a sage, but just to say that we had booked the club, but had been put into the park as the club was closed for refurb I think.... anyway... reception.... brilliant, check in .... brilliant.... the room, amazing.... clean, roomy, airy, pool view, mini fridge, kettle, soft drinks, tea and coffee.... my only warning is to say that if you drink from the mini bar before you read the stuff they give you... it's not free!!! We ended up paying for 2 soft drinks as they were from the fridge, but other than that we stuck to the bottles and the bars!!! The safe works, and the cleaning staff with their towel art were great. It was my partners birthday an he had a cake brought to the room on the day!!!
The restaurants were fantastic, always something to eat, and drink, and the food was always hot... no matter what time we went there was choice and what was cooked was edible and hot.... the snack bars cooked to order and were great too. The bars were clean and you could find something to drink.
The pools were clean, and tidy, plenty of beds and clean towels, the water in the pool was FREEZING, but quite nice after about 5 minutes!! The beach was lovely too.... clean, you didn't get hassled unless you indicated that you wanted to buy something or take a photo of the camels!!! The security staff were very vigilant so no dramas as described with things being stolen or tampered with.
The only down side if you can call it that was how much hassle we got when we left the complex to have a look around Nabq bay.... We only went for a walk and got talked into " please just come in and get my business card.... and what can you buy" a few times, but in the end we got quite firm and either ignored people or just firmly told them no.... It was horrible as we got cornered into going in as we are both quite nice and generous people but after spending £20 on a painting we didn't want as the man had written our names in Arabic on it we kind of toughened up a bit!!! If you do want any really nice paintings at a really good price go and see John Sharm who is near the Regency Plaza hotel, on the same side of the road as the Mirabel hotels.... he is lovely, has some amazing paintings that give a different painting when the lights are off, and was just genuinely a nice fella!!!
So all in all, if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing, easy going holiday for some winter sun, ( or in the summer if you can stand the heat.... it was 40 degrees in Nov/ December!!) and you don't mind furniture that is a little dated, but actually is comfortable, works and does all that you need it too, then I would highly recommend this complex. Of the three, I think the park is the middle sized one, and the entertainment team were great as they left you alone, but always asked if you wanted to join in.... The beach was a much bigger hotel that we walked through a few times to go to the beach and down to the shops.... it was lovely, but the park was perfect for us... Not far to the pool or restaurant, and quiet enough to be able to sit and eat wherever and whenever we wanted to.
We did take our thermo mugs with us and some of the bar staff did have a bit of an issue with filling them for us, but when they saw that we only went to the bar a few times each day, they did fill them... the guys at the beach didn't have a problem with them!!!
If there is anything you want to know then feel free to email me, am happy to give you my honest opinion!!! But we would happily go back again, and my neighbour is already booked in for next year!!!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms pretty much had a pool view, if you want a beach view, book the beach hotel, n...

We traveled as a couple in Dec'13 for 1 week all inclusive

I will start by saying we both enjoyed our holiday at the Jaz Mirabel Park hotel. We actually originally booked the Mirabel Club but the hotel was shut when we arrived and we were upgraded to the Mirabel Park.

Upon arrival on our transfer, our luggage was collected by the concierge and taken to our room. The reception staff were always friendly and approachable. The only time they couldnt help was when we asked to break a 100LE note into smaller notes for tips.They apparently never help in this situation.

Our room consisted of a king bed with a flat screen tv that had 5 english channels, mini bar and balcony. There was a walk through bed room with a table, two single beds and cupboard space with a built in safe. The positves for the room were the comfy beds, fox movie channels for when the you wanted to chill in your room and the great room service. The negatives were the red ants on the balcony and the fact the walls seemed hollow. The room wasnt well sound proofed, we could hear a children running around the room next door and the group of friends above. Also on nights that live music was at the bar, it was as clear in the room!

The pool area was nice, we had no problems getting sunbeds, The entertainment staff seemed like nice people and put on water polo and darts games daily. You do get hassled by an external company running dive courses and spa treatments which didnt seem fair on the guests, though they did take no for an answer.The pool snack bar had some decent food and drinks on offer. They had waiter service which takes drinks orders from your sunbeds. The waiters were very good. You were given beach towel cards on arrival which you could exchange daily for fresh towels.

The main buffet restaurant had a good selection of food, but did cater heavily for the russian guests. Though there were english and mexican theme nights. Breakfasts were good with fresh omelettes and pancakes available. The chef who works behind the grill is fantastic. Though obviously being a muslim country, pork isnt available.Again the waiters provided a good service. personally we found the restaurant a bit boring after a few days but that was more likely us than the restaurant.

The hotel entertainment isn't great, There is always something happening each night. Karaoke and club singers just aren't entertainment for me. That's just a personal choice. There was a quiz, bingo and dancing some evenings.

The location is ok, you have to walk through the Mirabel beach to get to the beach area. There are a few shops within the complex grounds, however there are shops outside the hotel. Also a decent mini market where you can shop hassle free! A short taxi ride or (10-15 min walk) brings you to the centre of nabq bay. Its not huge but there are loads more shops (be prepared to haggle), KFC, Mcdonalds, burger king, starbucks and a hard rock cafe. There are not any local restaurants or locally owned restaurants which is a shame.

We booked 3 excursions. The city tour and the quad biking are well worth doing.

To summarize, the hotel is very comfortable, the food is good quality, the location isnt bad and the all inclusive is good. The Mirabel beach hotel is better but you cant go wrong with The Jaz Mirabel Park

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor(3rd) to avoid listening to people walking around there rooms

We were actually booked in at the club but was upgraded, I think because there weren't enough guests. Main lobby, pool, slides, view, everything was really lovely. Our room was clean, light, great movie channels! Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great towel art which was amusing.
Internet a tad patchy but pretty good.

The food was pretty good overall, although if you like wine, I suggest you bring your own!

We took a dive open water course at Aquarius Dive Centre at the Sheridan, which I would recommend. Bus from the school picks you up and PADI course is great there. Amazing reefs and wild life to be seen! Also, don't forget to ask at the front desk at the hotel the night before they will pack you a lunch for the day for free.

Best authentic place we found was the Farsha mountain lounge on the coast.

Top tip: taxis are pretty cheap and can always be bartered down. I would forgo the transfers to/from the airport as you end up having to drop all other passengers on the way to your hotel, so just spend the 40-50 Egyptian pounds (about 4-5 quid) for your own personal ride.

Room Tip: All rooms were facing the pool so don't pay more for this feature.

Just returned 11 Dec 13 from 10 days of bliss.

I cant express enough how nice friendly and helpful the staff are and they only complimented the great food and the rest of the hotel. We stayed in the smaller Park hotel and it was lovely. the room was a great size a huge balcony and big bathroom. It was all in great condition and everyday the room was clean and we looked forward to what towel animal we had as a surprise made by room service.

The Spa is stunning and the services offered can be bartered for too. The pool side bar offers basic but good quality food and of course drinks. The pier on the beach is a must, walk to the end of what must be 700m long!

Word to the wise... beware the cocktails are delicious and Moorish but depending on the waiter can change in strength from mmmm to knock ur socks off :) and if you want to remember the evening stay clear of the flaming Ouzo ;)

Top tips;
1: Use the do not disturb bag on your sun loungers not to be bother by the "Sales Reps"
2: Always barter and don't be scared of saying no thank you to sales people and walking out/away, its not rude its the ways its done there.
3: ALWAYS confirm a price before getting on the camels on the beach, we saw first hand the owner try to take advantage of the poor family who did not do this and charge over the top (£50 english!!)

Only disappointment was the behaviour of the Russian gets, who were obnoxious and rude however this is no fault of the Hotels.

Already planning to go back next year and cant wait.

Room Tip: You can ask for double beds and they are massive, highly recommended.

We booked in via the Mirabel Beach Hotel, very plush and nice and big, only to be told that we were next door at the Park. A very much smaller complex with no access to the beach. Hardly overflowing in December. We paid £499 for a week all inclusive. It was £850 per 2 weeks at the Beach.
Having said that the people were fantastic and we had a really good time. Entertainment left a lot to be desired but the staff more than made up for it always pleasant and couldn't do enough for you. The towel figures on your beds were by far outclassed on the last day when we found a crocodile right across our beds, very funny. Would we go back...yes

Room Tip: All the rooms overlook the pool area so no brick walls or fences blocking your view and nice balcony...

Mine and my boyfriends first holiday together and it was absolutely amazing. We stayed at the Jaz Mirabel Park from the 17th-24th November 2013 and flew with Thomsons.

Cannot fault this hotel at all from the moment we arrived until we departed.

Reception staff are extremely helpful and quickly checked us in and we was shown to our room, while our bags were taken for us on the buggy.

I was blown away by the resort in the night time with all the lights surrounding the pool and walkways, the gardens are amazing and well looked after. We were shown to our room which was a double en suite with a balcony. The room was so much better than we were expecting due to (petty reviews on trip advisor) and the dated pictures they show on the website/Thomsons.

We received welcome bottles of water x2, coca cola and fanta along with a bottle of white wine and fruit, aswell as coffee and tea making facilities.

We went to the restaurant Flooka and was amazed by how much choice of food there was considering the previous mixed reviews. I am the most fussiest eater ever and I managed to find something I liked everyday to eat at breakfast lunch and dinner, I especially loved the chef who made the omelettes and pasta dishes on a daily basis. Big shout out to Mo in the restaurant who made our holiday that little bit more special, he's such a nice guy with an amazing sense of humour and can't do enough for you! We also ate at the snack bar and the food there was so good and a really big portion too!

We also received a free a la carte of our choice as part of out thomson package and we chose to eat at Nina's Italian restaurant which was so delicious and was made extra special as it was my birthday they sang happy birthday and made me a cake! :-)

We only spent 2 whole days in the resort lounging by the pool, sunbathing joining in the water polo and aqua aerobics and some time on the beach located through the sister hotel Jaz mirabel beach. We also got to hear some amazing cuban singers one night, a gorgeous belly dancer along with bingo and karaoke, the entertainment is really good in my opinion! The staff here can't do enough for you (without a tip). We tipped as much as we could because we honestly think they deserved it but people who didn't still received exactly the same service as us. It really is up to you.

Also the cleaner was amazing and left some fantastic towel art everyday!

The hotel is located in Nabq Bay, about 10 minute taxi ride from the main stretch of shops, restaurants and clubs. Use the taxi service located at the sister hotel Beach as they are so good, they take you there wait for you and you don't have to pay until you get back to the Hotel which is amazing! You will get alot of people asking you to go into their shops, you can go in and have a look around and chat but you aren't forced to buy something if you choose not to, and if you don't want to then just say no and walk off simple, they are really friendly nice people not trying to annoy you. For people who don't like going into shops and haggling then Soho square is for you, no one asks you to come into there shops and prices are clearly marked on the items, that doesn't mean you can't haggle if you want to but the choice is yours!

The rest of the time we were out and about exploring on our own into nabq bay and through thomson excursions we went to Soho square shopping, the ultimate dessert experience in the sinai dessert which included quad biking, camel rides, dancing and sheesha pipe smoking at a bedouin camp which was absolutely great fun, please note apart from the boys with the camels in the dessert the bedouin people will not except tips they would prefer you to buy some of their tea, handmade bracelets or ornaments, so please help them out as they are wonderful people.

We also did Luxor by Air which was so amazing and interesting and most definitely worth the money just for the guide Bassell who liked to be called smiley like his names English translation who was just like a walking encyclopedia and extremely friendly and helpful. We went to the Valley of the Kings and went into three tombs and also paid extra to visit Tutankhamun's tomb where his body still lies along with his golden sarcophagus. We also visited the Colossi of Memnon, Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple.

It really is a shame to visit a country with so much history and beautiful landscape and not explore.

We also did a combined Seascope Cruise on a Glass Bottom Submarine in Dahab and a VIP Cruise with two stops to go snorkeling in the red sea coral reefs. If you do this excursion and go to the Dahab shopping centre then I would hold off buying any perfume/aftershave until you go here as it's the only place where the government approve the perfumes and you will get such a great price and lovely smelling stuff.

I could not fault this holiday one bit and would definitely recommend the Jaz Mirabel Park to anyone who wants a fantastic holiday with amazing service, food and location we can't wait to go back already!

Also thank you to our Thomson rep Soeli who was lovely and helpful!

Hope anyone who is thinking/going here has such an amazing time as we did, wish we could have stayed longer 8 days just wasn't enough!

Thank you Jaz Mirabel Park Staff for everything hopefully see you all again soon from Ceri and Leigh xx

Hi, Just returned from a break at the Jaz Mirabel Park on 21/11/13 and want to write that we had a fantastic time. The staff in all areas were so pleasant and could not do enough. Special mention to Mo for the attention at meal times in the restaurant- taught us many egyptian phrases. Always a warm welcome Sami & Tarek. In the bar we were well looked after by George, Des & Abdo. In the beach bar by Mohammed & also by Saad our delightful cleaner. Enjoyed the company of the animation team Usher Kano & Donnawilla. Many guests had suggested that we tip to ensure we got looked after but we were well looked after and waited until the end and rewared those who gave excellent service which were many. The park had a much more intimate atmosphere than the beach which we visited with guests we met from there who often came to the park. The food was great and very varied. The cocktails wew diappointing at first but when mentioned to Abdo he made special effort to improve them to our satisfaction. The weather was the hottest November in 10 years. We had a fantastic time and look forward to retrurning again soon.

Room Tip: We were in 5322 which overlooked the pool and got the sun all day
