“Great time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Just returned on 16/2/12. Have been to Sharm 3 times beforehand, and stayed in various areas. Having read previous good reviews for this hotel this was the main influence upon us on booking the jaz belvedere for our family holiday.We were not disappointed. We are a family of 2 parents, 3 young adults (early 20's) and a 7 year old. On arrival at the hotel the checking in was quick and we had all been put in family rooms next to each other over looking the sea, so we were delighted. (We did email beforehand asking if this would be possible and we were advised they would do there best for us).

Unfortunately the first 2 days we had bad weather which was a big disappointment, however the sun eventually came out and thats when the holiday began.

The hotel is a little dated and could do with new furniture in the dining rooms and outside (sunbeds) however its not a big problem.

The food was great, (none of us had a bad tummy) the guys in the restaurant are so lovely and work so hard. My husband has a severe allergy to fresh tomatoes, and as they decorate everything with tomatoes, he was struggling to find anything to eat. We mentioned this and they were happy to cook him anything he wanted, they were so helpful. Whilst we were their we had 2 birthdays, one being a 21st. We asked the restaurant staff if they could put some balloons and decorate the tables (we supplied the balloons)....they all went out of their way to make this a lovely evening for us.

You will come across Katy, she is great and very helpful and will help you with anything you need or need to know. We went on a trip to soho square with adam (animation), he is also a great guy, very helpful and lots of fun. Bob (animation)also is very nice and will help you with anything you need, our daughter aged 7 wanted to go to the disco, but due to not having many kids around this was difficult, but bob was happy to arrange something for her...we didnt take him up on it, but he was so willing to help us out.

The guys on the beach (sports) they are very good, we did the windsurfing with them and booked a few trips via them,. Everyone is just so nice and helpful, we just couldnt fault it.

The only negative was the guys in the spa, they can be a pain in the bum, as they keep coming round to talk to you and try and get you to book treatments. They were very pushy. We found out the last day that you can get a 'do not disturb' little wooded thing, from the towel guys and this will stop them. I think because we booked independantly, we did not get all this type of info. Also we went to use the spa on a bad weather day, only to find the sauna not working and only 2 jets in the jacuzzi were working. The whole spa area need completely revamping.

I would like to point out that having read other reviews complaining about the italian amimation team being loud and rude. We did not find this at all. Yes, the hotel does have many italian visitors, but we did not find this a negative at all. A few russian people, but not hordes as in some hotels.

We had a lovely time and would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday with suberb service all round. We will be back.

No faults whatsoever with the accommodation. or surroundings. Rooms cleaned to perfection, with clean linen daily. Grounds superbly kept, as was the beach area. A lot of disco noise the first night, and we changed rooms the following day, only to find the "noise" was from the next Hotel !! We have not been to Egypt before, but have been to many foreign countries, and look forward to good local food . This was the downfall of our holiday, particularly the main course of each meal. Food was cold. Plates were cold. Complaints made to the Catering manager, and later to the General Manager, with whom we and other British and Danish had a meeting. Not much success, although we were offered alternative food. How difficult is it to get through that you want hot food on a hot plate ??
The soup was always red hot, the salad well presented, and the sweet set out to perfection.
Animation team extremely loud, and not just on the beach, but even entering the restaurant
both at lunch time and dinner time. Who wants someone shouting there head off, when you sit down for a meal.
Food wastage in this Hotel was unbelievable. Particularly from the Russians, who piled their plates high, main course, bread ,salad, sweet, and fruit, and then walked off and left it.
One person who is an enormous asset to this hotel is Katy. We had read about her in reviews prior our holiday. If there is a problem, see Katy!! She is brilliant.
So, apart from the food, this would be an excellent break. Could not speak highly enough of all staff, reception, housekeeping, gardeners, waiters and bar-staff, and security. Everyone even with little knowledge of the English language, made the effort. We may return to the area, but it would need to be on good recommendation for food.

We spent ten days at the Jaz Belvedere in January. The hotel is nicely away from Naama Bay and Old Sharm. We wanted a family-oriented resort that was on the relatively small size, and that's what we got. The Jaz is a modern, well-appointed, facility. Rooms are superb: nice cathedral ceilings, comfortable beds, roomy bathrooms, etc. We asked for a sea view room (building 12 is probably the best), and they accommodated us quickly. I should add that the grounds were beautiful; we took many strolls around the resort. Very nice!
The beach is especially geared for children (very shallow), though if you want something more adventurous you better go elsewhere. There are three swimming pools, one, the children's one, is heated.
You can stroll over, easily, to the small street adjoining the Baron Palms, it has some nice stores and restaurants. At the stores, unfortunately, you'll face the same hassles as in the nearby towns, but that's life in Sharm. Getting anywhere is "expensive" (that is except for Soho Square), and by that I mean in annoyance at the very idea of riding in a taxi - very tiring to be pressured for more money, even if you can ignore it. The hotel could provide better transport, or indeed any transport, though few of the resorts do.
Now to the food and drinks, everyone's favorite topic. The dining room(s) were never crowded, always clean, and there always available space, though this was January, so I wouldn't have expected any real waits. The buffets were extensive, and on the whole, there was a good choice of food. I would have liked more middle eastern offerings, and less pasta, but that's a minor complaint. I can't imagine anyone could complain about the choice of foods or the attentiveness of the staff - first rate.
My only suggestion, strong suggestion, is that the Jaz should make more of an effort to create an entertainment for chidlren (or rather for other nationalities than Italians).
We left the Jaz rested and very pleased with the resort. We recommend it highly.

Last minute booking through Lowcostholiday.com Our first all inclusive experience and one we can't wait to repeat! The hotel was excellent in all respects; food, bars, facilities, and the friendliness and cleanliness were remarkable. Katy was always available and ensured we were happy she was able to help arrange our boat trip snorkiling. An excellent winter retreat.

My husband and I have just got back from a winter week away at the Jaz Belvedere. We decided to book after reading all of the positive comments posted on this site. Although I cannot fault the week in any way, my first impressions were a little disappointing as visually it was a very tired looking building in need of a little re-vamp. Within in an hour of being there though, this was no longer an issue, as the overall hospitality was amazing. We were greeted on a daily basis in the food hall by our waiter Hamada, who by the end of the week literally had our drinks waiting for us! He was fantastic. The same goes for the cleaning guy (block 13), who was very keen to ensure that we enjoyed our stay and our room was up to our standards without being annoying or intrusive. The food was of a good variety as is standard in all inclusive resorts. The hotel staff overall were very keen every step of the way to ensure that we were enjoying ourselves, and I am confident they would have changed anything that was not to our standards. The only minor criticism I would have being English, is that the Animation Team were Italian, (as were most of the guests), so it was heavily aimed at an Italian crowd with very little (if anything) aimed at English guests.

Stunning hotel : large and overwhelming overlooking the atlantic . Exclusive beach - excellent variety in all inclusive. Brilliant staff good animation team location a bit of a let down if you like to stroll around for local shopping. Since sharm is a purpose built tourist resort alot of the culture will be catered for via excursions which are handled excellently so we didnt really worry about that. Spoken to a few others while on tours together and everyone seemed quite happy with their hotels too as new hotels are in mass production!!
