This was our 1st time to Egypt and I can say that it was one of the best package holidays we have been on.
The hotel was spotless, constantly being cleaned and maintained (Grass being cut, flowers tended to etc.). The staff were the friendliest we have ever met, they could not do enough for you.....OK the cynical side of me thinks part of it was for the tips but hey what's a pound here and there if it means the sunbed is positioned, fresh towels put on and drinks are regularly offered (as part of the all inclusive). The guy who cleaned our room made different shapes out of the towels ...heart, elephant, peacock, a little man holding the TV remote, a snake....the room was large, clean, air conditioned. The balcony overlooked one of the 18 pools in the resort.
The main buffet style restaurant had a huge range of foods available, all freshly prepared with all drinks...soft drinks, tea, coffee, wines and beer on tap (Help yourself), there is 4 a la carte restaurants which you could book and visit on an evening ...Italian, Asian, Hungarian and Fish all of which offered a good service and great food.
Whilst we were there we indulged in the Spa and we (My wife and I) had his n hers Red sea salt scrub followed by massage with use of all the spa facilities...sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and little feet nibbling fish in tanks. We also used the beauty salon where I had a cut throat shave, my wife had a pedicure, again the staff could not do enough and even threw in threading on our eyebrows, a facial, tidied my neck hair and then to cap it all off they gave us a 2nd free of charge on the morning of depature!
The hotel was fairly quiet as not many people are travelling to Egypt after the issues last year but we went on 3 excursions (Desert experience, Mayanmar Island paradise & local shops) and found no issues whatsoever.
Overall I would not hesitate to go back to Egypt and the Jaz Aquamarine in particular!
