Hotel with a large reef, nice beach, close to the airport. Very nice and helpful hotel staff and good value for money. Special thanks to: - Mustafa Mahmoud (room service) for taking care of our comfort in the room, beautiful towel animals and all help during our stay, - Ahmed Abozamel (waiter) for the professional service of our afternoon lunches at the pool bar, - Mohamed (chef), for delicious pizza every day, delicious shrimps, smile and readiness to help even in unusual situations. We recommend upgrading your room to a Superior Room with sea view. Better view, larger room, closer to the beach and restaurants.

I had a wonderful experience staying at Jaz Fanara Sharm El Sheikh, which I consider to be one of the best hotels. I visited at the end of February, and the weather was warm and pleasant during my stay. The check-in process was quick, and within just 10 minutes, I was in my room. The hotel itself is quite nice, with a lovely warm pool that I enjoyed. The beach is particularly impressive, boasting a sandy shoreline and stunning coral reefs. There are also great spots for snorkeling, and I found the water to be calm and peaceful due to the mountains sheltering the beach from the wind. My room had a fantastic sea view, and it was well-equipped with all the necessary amenities. I was quite pleased with the cleanliness and tidiness of the room. Moreover, the housekeeping staff, especially Mr.Mostafa, made my stay even more enjoyable. Mostafa was a polite and helpful person who always wore a smile. He kept my room tidy and clean, and his beautiful room decorations added a special touch. Thanks to him, I had an awesome experience, and he is one of the reasons why I will definitely return to Jaz Fanara in the future. I would also like to mention Mr. Mohamed Hosny from the restaurant. He was a nice person who always assisted with a smile and was very cooperative. The entire team at Jaz Fanara deserves a big thank you for their efforts. Overall, I truly enjoyed my stay at Jaz Fanara and am already looking forward to returning in the new year.

Moustafa (Mahmoud) undoubtedly made our experience at this hotel 100 times better. He was extremely accommodating and readily there for our needs. He went above and beyond to make sure we’re content at all times. This man is an absolute angel. He’s extremely trustworthy and super creative (somehow managed to make a crocodile with towels). Definitely one of a kind.

This was our second visit to Jaz Fanara and it won't be our last. I've snorkelled all over in the last 40 years in, for example, the Maldives, Florida, the Caribbean and Mexico but this hotel has the best from the beach reef I've ever experienced - it is amazing and can you swim to the reef in under a minute directly from the beach. Don't miss swimming to the jetty at El Fanar next door as the reef there is in deeper water and is spectacular. Be sure to go and meet Ghaleb the lifeguard who takes guests onto the reef at 10.30 each morning. He is an expert snorkeller and will spot things you might not. He’s a lovely man too, always greeting you with a big smile and a cheery “good morning”. Onto the hotel itself. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and I’ve attached a few photos of the staff who made our stay so enjoyable. We arrived at around 11.00 pm and, to our surprise, there was still a hot buffet available to us. That was a great start. Steven on reception was incredibly efficient, allocating us a room in our preferred area, as was his colleague, Waleed. We had a couple of minor issues but they were swiftly rectified by these guys. I was pleasantly surprised to meet a couple of staff members who remembered us from our previous visit, both of whom were called Achmed. (We referred to them as wee Ahmed and Birmingham Ahmed – as he is married to a Birmingham lass and has an authentic Brummie accent). Milad in the restaurant took good care of us last time around and it was lovely to see this gentle man again. The service in this hotel really is fabulous: For example, Ahmed the restaurant supervisor ensured we were taken care of every single time we dined in the main restaurant. He really did go above and beyond to take care of me. I am quite a fussy eater but, due to his efforts, I never left the restaurant disappointed. The pool bar staff Alaa, Karim and the others whose photos I’ve attached were cheerful, friendly and very efficient – no one had to wait any length of time for drinks. Thanks to our room cleaners Salah and Omar, our room was spotless. We had a wonderful room next to the main pool but don’t miss taking a walk to the quiet pool where there’s the lovely restaurant called La Gazella. It’s a 5 minute walk from reception but is quiet and intimate both during the day and at meal times. Our previously mentioned Brummie pal, Ahmed, ensured that our visit to the Italian restaurant was brilliant. The food and the service was excellent and we came to depend on him when we needed any advice. We also met yet another old friend called Ahmed from our previous visit who, like his colleagues, seemed genuinely pleased to see us. There was yet another Ahmed – the entertainments manager – who sorted a minor problem for us and kept contact throughout our visit to ensure we were happy. I can’t forget to mention Mohammed at the beach bar. I say beach bar but it’s a few steps up from the beach. Always friendly, always preparing an ice cream for us as we approached! I’m going to great lengths to mention so many members of staff because I want to highlight how well we were treated. Yes, we’ve visited Egypt many, many times and are used to fantastic service but I do feel that the guys here went that little bit further. I offer my apologies to anyone I’ve failed to mention. The management should be proud of every single member of staff. Tips? Don’t miss the amazing sunsets, make sure you make the short swim to the jetty at El Fanar next door and simply relax and allow yourself to be taken care of by the excellent staff at Jaz Fanara.

I transferred to the Jaz Fenera Hoel from another hotel because my partner had been admitted to the hospital 10 minutes away from this hotel. Once the hotel realised the situation I found myself in, nothing was too much trouble. EVERY member of staff from the Reception, Catering, Housekeeping and particularly the Concierge and Portering staff were so helpful in what was a very traumatic time. The hotel is lovely and the cleaning is of the highest standard. There are no elevators and the main dining room is up a flight of stairs so anybody with walking difficulties may find that a problem. La Grazella Restaurant is a distance from the main site and on ground level which provide breakfast and evening meals so we were taken there by buggy by the concierge staff so my partner could eat once he was discharged from hospital. Lunches had to be provided in our room - again that was no trouble to the staff. My grateful thanks to all staff at the hotel.

As a family we all loved this holiday in every way. Hotel and food were great, staff could do enough for you and extremely friendly. Our cleaner 'Walid' was amazing with surprises every day for kids which they loved him for and obviously did a great clean. Bar staff were exceptional especially 'Alaa' at the pool bar who made my kids different alcohol free cocktails at night. Magic world entertainment were great. Shika and his team did something to suit everyone throughout the day and put shows on at night. The icing on the cake was the views! Top hotel. Top service. Top holiday! Would highly recommend.

Decent clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Also has a really good beach with reef you can swim out to. Lack of WiFi in rooms (and it’s poor in the public areas) plus average food let it down for me a bit. If there was a good rating I’d give it that.. Mustafa who serviced our room was brilliant.
