“Fab Hotel, very relaxing, grounds immaculate, recommend it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2009

Just returned from a week in Jaz Mirabel. Fabulous hotel, great pool areas with plenty of sun loungers throughout the day. The grounds are immaculate with beautiful flowers, plants etc and I'm not a gardener. The grounds are huge but I've never seen hotel grounds so well maintained. A couple of points:
- don't bring towels, you won't need them
- go all inclusive if you can manage it, you'll cover the cost in no time
- the room we were in was a good size and it was spotless throughout our stay.
- these days internet access is important, don't think there's any availble though. this needs to be addressed. A minor negative that can easily be rectified.
- Food in the buffets is very good. The hot food is good, maybe a bit so-so but perfectly acceptable, the salads and deserts are fantastic. Good selection at breakfast time. The hotel management should consider more 'theme nights' in the buffet areas for better variety. Food in the snack bars was good, mainly bar food type stuff.
- we went to the Thomson welcome meeting and got a voucher for one of the three restuarants. We choose the Italian and it was very good. In terms of broadening the food choice the hotel should maybe consider opening these more regularly to all inclusive guests. They generally looked fairly empty most nights.
- we found the service in the buffets and the two bars to be very good, although the occupancy rate at the moment is 60% so plenty of room and plenty of staff around. Not sure what it would be like if it was full. Staff were excelllent, friendly, good sense of humour and with good English.
- the health club is fine, the gym is a wee bit small but the sauna's, steam rooms etc are plenty big enough.
- the two main hotel bars are both very nice, very well furnished etc and the choice of drinks available on the all inclusive deal is fine. Bit weird sitting amongst the smokers again but high ceilings in both bars so its not too bad.
- we used prestige cars in the hotel to pop into Na'ama Bay for 190EGY pounds return (c£25). There's local taxis right outside the front gate which are probably cheaper. Na'ama Bay itself is about 25 mins by taxi - it's a bit hit and miss but worth a visit for an evening. Like any holiday destination expect to get a bit of hassle ie come into my restuarant, come into my shop etc
- We flew Thomson on a place called the Eric Morecambe which is an ancient rust bucket. To be fair both flights were on time and the food was okay and I suppose thats the main thing. On they way home the video equipment (no personal in seat screen)didn't work, the sound quality was very poor and one or two of the interior lights blinked on and off the whole way so not a pleasant 6 hour plus flight home. As usual Scottish travellers pay mpore and still get shafted. Come on Thomson, do better.
- Sharm also has two departure terminals one of them is very new but we were all punted into the older one. They process you pretty quickly but facilities inside are awful and the place stinks a bit. The prices in the duty free are outrageous so don't bother with it. Get your stuff on the way out.
- Jas Mirabel itself is a bit isolated so choose another destination if you a more active nightlife. Otherwise its a superb place to go for a relaxing holiday. We can both be a bit picky and recently have gotten a bit peeved with some of the crappy service you now get at a lot hotels etc but this place was superb and we will defnitely be back. I've no hesitation giving it the full 5 stars. If you pick this place for a holiday destination you won't regret it. Enjoy !

This was our first time in Egypt, and we had heard all the horror stories before we left, but on our arrival we were delighted with the sight that greeted us. A security check for the coach first and then up the sweeping driveway to the front of the complex, fountains, palm trees and a cheerful and helpful front desk and the same for the bell hop, who took us and our luggage by golf buggy to our room

Once he had carried the bags to the room and departed, still smiling, we were left in our room, which was both spacious and very clean. This condition remained the same for the whole period of our stay, towel art included (which we recipricated with our own 'dead chicken' towel art and tip) and it was never a problem to get anything done for the room (including forgetting the safe number) a point to watch out for though, do not go onto the balcony and fully close the door behind you, as we found out there is no door handle on the outside, great for security but rather embarrassing

Cannot understand people moaning about the food it was of a high standard throughout, I think people forget that this is a Muslim country and they do not serve pork, so get used to beef sausages instead if you want your 'Full English' or be a little daring and try somthing from the great range of different food

All the bars were staffed by very helpful and again cheery staff, who will go out of thier way to bring your drinks to you wherever you are sitting

We went on two trips whilst there and we can only praise these, one was the submarine (well a boat that you go downstairs to view the fish and coral), again with a helpful chatty guide. the other trip was the VIP boat trip, where they keep the numbers on board strictly to 30 and there is plenty of space (get up the front if you can) and this boat takes you out to the Raz Mohammed National underwater park and stops three times to allow you to go snorkelling, this is very well supervised with 2 qualified divers in the sea with you and they keep a watchfull eye on everyone. If you, like my wife have never fancied snorkelling she would now say "go for it" they provided her with a life jacket and one of the divers virtually towed her around by holding onto a life ring, a great day out

We were there to relax and enjoy the weather and we had both in good measure, I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone

Just returned from a two week stay at the Jaz Mirabel Beach. This was our 3rd visit to this hotel and were yet again amazed and delighted with our stay!

We have made friends with Sameh, who in our opinion, is the best member of staff in the hotel. Also Emad, who has now been promoted to pool manager, was great and looked after our every need.

We were greeted on our arrival and shown to our room which included a letter from the management welcoming us back, a basket of fruit, bathrobes and slippers which just made us feel even more welcomed and special.

The restuarant staff were all fantastic. A special mention for Muhammed and Mona who made us feel very welcome at all times. Pool and bar staff all extremely friendly and we never once waited for a drink.

The hotel is spotless and clean. The food is varied with something for everyone and having been there 3 years, we have never been ill! Entertainment is not great and probably geared towards an older generation, however there is a disco for younger visitors.

It is not necessary to tip the staff members, but we always have which i feel gave us that little bit extra attention.

I would recommend this hotel for couples, but dont think it is that suitable for children.

Overall the hotel is beautiful, great pool area and facilities. Staff are excellent and we would definitely return for a 4th time in the future. A well deserving 5 star!!!

First impressions of this hotel were very good, it's very clean and we found most of the staff very friendly. The waiters remember you if you tip them (and it doesn't have to be very much) and you'll find your glass is never empty! Also, we found the various towel sculptures in our bedroom very funny, the crocodile being the best!!
While I'm not too fussy about food my husband is and he couldn't fault it - there were plenty of choices for dinner and always something he liked. Contrary to a previous review, there WERE chips, but mainly at lunch-time.
We preferred the pools to the beach, (the windbreakers make it feel quite claustrophobic) but the sea was warm and you could walk out for a fair distance without it being deep, though shoes are essential because of the coral.
The shopping mall can be quite annoying because the shopkeepers do try to entice you into their shops, but just say no and they will leave you alone! Same goes for Naama bay!
We went on a couple of Thomson trips, a red sea cruise and quad-biking in the desert - both of which we thoroughly enjoyed, and we found the reps really good. I also had a hot stone massage in the spa which was admittedly pretty expensive but really enjoyable!!
We would go back, can't beat the weather at this time of the year.

Mysefl and a friend wanted a easy break whereby I needed to study for an exam in the sum and she needed to re-charge.
We nearly didnt book this hotel due to one other bad rating regarding the food but I have to say we are thrilled that we continued with this reservation as the hotel was stunning, easy, not too busy, clean and comfortable and the food was pretty goody for an al inclusive break.
Having tried a few all inclusive deals, I had decided not to go with this option as I simply prefer to select food from a menu as I fell it is more relaxing, however, the quality of food and choice was pretty good for an easy chill out week and the bonus was I passed my exam that I studied in the sun for!!!
I have since recommended it to a male friend who wanted to get away on his own and he too was thrilled with the standard as it was just what he was looking for!
Dont forget to check out the heated pool especially in the evening - it was like having a cocktail in the bath and we say to this day that it was our best evening!
