Recently returned from the Jaz oriental Mersa Matruh, we can't fault the hotel, the room was very spacious, clean and fresh linen and towels everyday. The down side the pool was not heated so very cold as the weather was not always hot as travelled at Easter, the beach/pool bar ahd limited selection of snacks and sandwiches. The food in the restaurant, make the most of the breakfast as the lunch time and evening meals were not always good and the food was always cold and nearly always left overs from the day before especially in the salad bar. There was no evening entertainment, and be aware that you have to pay for your water and milk for you tea and coffee in the room. You also have to pay for the mini bar which I think is a bit silly as you are all inclusive and they serve all these drinks for free in the bars. Just a money maker on behalf of the hotel!!The staff are very friendly and helpful but over keen in the restaurant when taking you plate away whilst you are still eating. There is no where to go apart from walking aroung the hotel complex or the beach, you can go on a trip with Thomsons to the town of Mersa Matruh but dont waste your money you spend money time on the coach than in the shops and you have an armed guard with you at all times and you go to see were Cleopatra Bath which is just crap and full of rubbish. The Rommel museum was just a cave with some old war stuff again waste of time, hense don't do the shop and rock. Would not recommend and not 5 star restaurant food.
