My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks during Aug 2010 with our 2 kids aged 11 & 6. After reading all the negative reviews before going, i was dreading the heat and the food, but I really do want to point out that absolutely everything was far better than i was expecting. (Apart from sharm airport which is hideous). The hotel and it's grounds are beautiful and our room was excellent. We had no problem with the food in the restaurants - we went mostly to the smaller one where gents need to wear long trousers in the evening as it's less busy and not as noisy. All the food was well cooked and I never saw any flies on any food as some have reported. The restaurant staff were all friendly and welcoming and I would like to stress that we received brilliant service from them all the time without any tipping because we were friendly and polite to them. The only down side to the food at the hotel was at the pool snack bars which had dirty tables and the most revolting chicken burgers ever (mashed up offal and bones i reckon!). But you don't have to eat at them for lunch so not a problem to avoid. We had a lovely chap cleaning our room who made animals from towels almost every day (again without tips!), the best being a crocodile with our son's teddy bear in it's mouth - brilliant! We left him a tip at the end of our hol. The Animation team worked hard keeping everyone entertained - some much more friendly than others. Ashlee, Zalina & Figo were our faves. We were invisible to Sam (the Ashley Cole look-a-like) as none of our family was a hot 20 year old female.
Our daughter had her 11th birthday during our holiday and the hotel left a lovely note for her and a huge slice of choc cake in our room.
The beach was lovely - my husband and daughter enjoyed snorkelling alot and we all saw some amazing fish, but you definately need aqua shoes. We soon adapted to the heat, some days there was a strong breeze. Lots of water and shade then there's not a problem.
We went a few times to the hotel next door to use the water slides which were great, and I used the spa and jacuzzi which was a real treat.
Regarding dodgy tums, the only one to escape was our 6 year old son who isn't adventurous with his food. I took some Imodium with us along with some re-hydration sachets which proved invaluable - we didn't therefore need a doctor as we sorted it ourselves. We weren't ill at all - just had a 2 minute warning to get to a loo. All cleared up in 24 hours.
This was our first visit to Egypt and we would return to the Jaz Mirabel.
