We have just returned from two fantastic weeks at Jaz Belvedere and really couldn’t have chosen a better hotel to stay at during our time in Sharm El Sheikh.

Everything about the hotel is wonderful – the peaceful location, the stunning Moroccan design of the hotel, the site layout and grounds, the spacious rooms (be sure to ask for a sea view!), the pool area, the private beach, the wide range of daytime and evening activities and entertainment, the fantastic range and quality of food and, most importantly, the wonderful staff who really can’t do enough to make you feel welcome and to ensure that your stay is enjoyable and trouble-free.

This really is a hotel that offers something for everyone – whether you want a relaxing time in the sun, or want to join in the activities laid on by the fantastic animation team – with water aerobics, water polo, beach volley ball, pilates, darts and more there really is something for everyone. And that’s without mentioning the wide range of activities on or in the sea (diving, snorkelling, boat trips, camel rides, and much more).

Likewise, the restaurant offers something for everyone, with a wide range of dishes to choose from every day at breakfast, lunch and dinner. You won’t be disappointed with the quality and selection of food on offer, and certainly won’t go hungry. And, if you want something that isn’t provided, all you have to do is ask and they’ll do their best to provide it for you.

A special mention has to be made of the fabulous guest relations team of Ahmed, Katy and Karlene – friendly faces who are on hand around the hotel every day to check that everything is OK, and to help put things right if not. We really did have nothing to complain about during our stay, but it was great to be asked, and we enjoyed our daily chats with one, two or all three of the team.

The hotel, rooms and the grounds are spotless and very clean, thanks to the efforts of the cleaning and maintenance staff.

However, all the staff deserve a mention as they really do make you feel like guests in the truest sense of the word. From the reception staff to the bar and restaurant staff to the cleaners and the pool staff... all greet you each day with a smile, and a friendly welcome. We particularly want to mention Ibrahim, the brilliant hotel photographer, and Ehab, our cleaner in our first week, – and have to mention the fantastic towel art left in our room by both of our cleaners.

The Jaz Belvedere is very much an international hotel - during our stay the hotel was also home to guests from Italy, Germany, Russia, the UK, the Czech Republic and from Egypt and it was great to hear a wide variety of languages being spoken.

If you decide that you do want to leave the hotel there are lots of excursions you can go on. During our stay we went on four brilliant excursions provided by the highly-recommended SharmExcursions.com, including a fantastic and trouble-free day trip to Cairo, and a brilliant camel ride/star gazing trip in the Sinai desert.

Egypt is obviously experiencing some well-documented troubles at the moment, but Sharm El Sheikh is a safe and fantastic place to go to, and the hotel Jaz Belvedere is a wonderful hotel.

The staff will be delighted to see you, will make you feel very welcome, and you’re sure to have a great stay.

(A quick word too for Ash, the brilliant Thomson rep who also did all he could to make sure we were happy and enjoying our stay).

If you are planning a visit to Sharm it would be hard to find a hotel as good as the Jaz Belvedere, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view - we were in room 1214 which had a brilliant view of the Red Sea.

The Jaz Belvedere Hotel in Sharm El Sheikh is one of the best hotels I have had the pleasure to stay at. I have visited Egypt twice previously but never experienced the excellent customer relations that my husband and I was afforded on this occasion. The customer relation team comprises of three staff all of whom have excellent communication skills. They actually listened to all comments made by guests and made improvement's immediately following customers comments. The food served in the main restaurant in the hotel for lunch and dinner provides a selection of meat, fish and pasta accompanied by a selection of salads and vegetables. There is also a large stock of sweet desserts and fresh fruit. If you are unable to find something from the extensive menu the team are always happy to oblige and cook you something different. The beach is situated directly in front of you by the large swimming pool , there is a beach bar and incredibly spotless beach toilet's best I have ever seen. Over all a superb hotel and staff team that make your holiday experience very special.

Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a week long holiday here and thought it was the best holiday we have ever had the service from all the staff was fantastic especially the guest relations Katy and karlene they were always coming round checking everything was ok and we were happy. The hotel is in the middle of no where but is only a short cab ride from naama bay and soho square which the reception can arrange. The animation team are absolutely amazing! We went on 2 nights out with them and they were sooooo good! Moka and Omar are so welcoming and made us feel safe going out with them on nights out, we miss them loads and can't wait to come back soon to see them! The food was good but just got a bit boring but I think that wherever I go AI. I would Definately recommend this hotel to anyone and I will DEFINATELY be back as soon as I can be! Thank you for such a great holiday!

We have just come back from 2 weeks at the Jaz Belvadere. What a lovely hotel. Yes the immediate surroundings are not very nice but inside, it’s lovely!!
We were put in room 1019, what a fantastic sea view!!, Near the beach, pool and the main block, couldn't have asked for more from Hussien who kept our room clean and always had a kind word and a smile...All the staff were fantastic, must mention Abou from the Sakia bar.... what a character, kept everyone smiling and worked very hard. Mohamed from the main restaurant who kept us plied with steaks and currys whenever we asked. The waiters all worked hard and had drinks waiting for you as you returned to the table.
The lobby bar is 24 hr all inclusive, how the bar supervisor (the captain as I called him) kept going I have no idea…. Its glasses, and cold, just what is needed
Getting a sunbed was no issue, the great guys at the towel bar had ours out for us each morning.
Katy from customer relations, well what more can you say, she was wonderful, always asking if everything was alright with everything, always had a kind word and a smile for everyone, she worked wonders sorting issues out, finding answers, sitting and just chatting and getting to know the guests. palju tänu Katy jaoks kõik, mida sa tegid meile....Just for you Katy..
The animation team, Omar and Moka, what wonderful people they are, they kept us all in stiches with their antics, they really made the holiday so enjoyable, Their energy and enthusiasm was great!!. Shame some of the other members of their team form a southern European country didn't seem to ant to follow suit!. But hats off to the pair of them CHILLAX my friends!!
The only draw back I can see about the hotel is the lack of teenager entertainment, its a place for adults and not really for kids. Even when we were both unwell with red sea belly, the pharmacist and doctor were a great help. My top tip would be if you have the red sea belly, have the injection, it really works and sorts the bugs out!
Overall a great hotel, just needs a few tweaks to really keep the Brits happy. More variety and creativity with the food. People like Moka and Omar who kept people happy, Abou with his drinks and stories. Katy with her smile worked wonders and made it a most enjoyable holiday

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a sea view, ask for block 10 if you can

we have just returned after spending a week here, and it is a stunning little resort. we chose the Jaz belvedere for our 1st time in sharm, and am so glad we did. the room was great, we had a fantastic sea view, staff were so so friendly and the beach was great. very clean all around. we had a few little hiccups but nothing that the hotel didnt sort out quickly for us, the guest relations were great too, Carly was always checking we were ok and giving advise when we asked. my partner is a very fussy eater so it was great that the chefs would cook him steak or chicken and chips when there was nothing he would eat, great touch guys. i was also impressed that after i forgot my raybans by the pool i actully got them back from reception the next day, says a lot that :P we met some great friends here and cannot wait to return, hopefully see you all soon

Room Tip: we were in block 2011, close to everything fantastic view!

Firstly I want to say this hotel is brilliant, and definatly is what you pay for.

On arrival to the hotel at 10pm, we were welcomed to a fantastic hotel. The entrance was very grand and very clean, just what you expect for a 5 star hotel. We checked in very quickly, and were given room 1107, a beautiful spacious family room (was only 2 of us) with a fantastic view of the sea and very close to the pool. Very clean and modern and everything you need, i was slightly disappointed to find no bath, just a large shower, however it was nothing to complain about i just love a bath!

With it being mine and my wifes 1st wedding anniversary, i requested some flowers to be put in the room for our return from the pool, i paid reception and this was just sorted and they were beautiful.

Everyday our room was cleaned by Reda, who was fantastic and asked us many of times if there was anything he could do or sort for us. The room was cleaned to a very high standard everyday and amazing towel art also was placed on our bed, or around the room. One thing i would mention is that the air con only works when your keyring is inserted into a hole, which would mean when your at the pool all day it would become rather hot for you returning to the room, so we took the key off the key ring and left this in the hole so that the air con was on all day, perfect!

Quite often wondering around the pool side talking to guests is Katy. She is amazing and will ensure all your comments negative and positive are all taken on bored and if any action is to be taken, she'll make it happen.

Abou el maged was behind the pool bar everyday, he is very friendly and approachable. We tipped him some english currency (they prefer notes apposed to coins) and he consistantly brought us drinks and ice cream to our sun bed.

If i am honest the whole highlight for our holiday was the animation team, they were literally incredible and very entertaining! especially Moka and Omar who were literally hilarious and brilliant as a double act! I appreciate that the animation isnt for everyone, however they create such a good vibe around the pool and have such a happy approach to everyone. Water polo and Aqua gym were brilliant!

Me and my wife for something different ventured into Nabq Bay for the first time, we wet to TGI Fridays, it was very reasonably priced considering its expensive in England and we had a brilliant meal, that good we went twice!

Although we didnt use the spa facilities we went to have a look and it was very luxurious and very relaxing.

The evening entertainment was ok, sometimes very cringeworthy. Towards the end of the holiday it became funnier as we knew the animation team, and we could laugh at them as we knew their personality.

Jaz Belvedere is occupied by mainly Russian and Italian guests, however this didnt bother us as they were all polite.

The main downsides is the food, we read alot of positive comments regarding the food however they must have been eating somewhere else, very repetitive and not a great selection.
If you are very picky, if you talk to chef Mohammed he is very helpful and if you request something and he has the ingredients hell cook it for you.

If you had come to the Jaz Belvedere specifically for snorkelling, you are definatly in the wrong hotel. It has no coral so the fish you see are very very limited in comparison to other hotels, so i would do more research into what hotel would be more suited.

Although it says in the welcome pack in the room that no sun bed reservations can be made, ignore it, as everyone does! if you dont come down early you will not have a sun bed as they are reserved very quickly, this only applies for the pool though as there are always plenty on the beach. I came down at 6am (my own choice) and put my towels down and went back to bed, this way i knew i would definatly get my preferred beds.

The A La Carte restaurant is not anything special in the slightest, yes its something slightly differant to the buffet, but it is nothing to rave about. Watch out for the mixed grill, my chicken for literally raw!

Finally you only get a small wifi usage 150mb. I have a code for free unlimited wifi (only for pool area and reception) User - NG Password bel123

All in all a very pleasurable holiday and would recomend this hotel to anyone.

I hope my comments have come in handy!

PS say hello to Moka and Omar for me! AGALA!!!!!

Room Tip: Request either pool or sea view!
